Publisher: | New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | This book is an introduction to a comprehensive and unified dynamic transition theory for dissipative systems and to applications of the theory to a range of problems in the nonlinear sciences. The main objectives of this book areto introduce a gener al principle of dynamic transitions for dissipative systems, to establish a systematic dynamic transition theory, and to explore the physical implications of applications of the theory to a range of problems in thenonlinear sciences. The basic philosophy of the theory is to search for a complete set of transition states, and the general principle states that dynamic transitions of all dissipative systems can be classified into three categories:continuous, catastrophic and random. The audience for this boo k includes advanced graduate students and researchers in mathematics and physics as well as in other related fields |

Note: | This book is a treatise on the thermodynamic and dynamic properties of thin liquid films at solid surfaces and, in particular, their rupture instabilities. For the quantitative study of these phenomena, polymer thin films havenproven to be an invalua ble experimental model system. What is it that makes thin film instabilities special and interesting, warranting a whole book? There are several answers to this. Firstly, thin polymeric films have an importantrange of applications, and with the increase in the number of technologies available to produce and to study them, this range is likely to expand. An understanding of their instabilities is therefore of practical relevance for thedesign of such films. Secondly, thin liquid films are an interdiscipl inary research topic. Interdisciplinary research is surely not an end to itself, but in this case it leads to a fairly heterogeneous community of theoretical andexperimental physicists, engineers, physical chemists, mathematicians and others working on th e topic. It justifies attempting to write a text which aims at a coherent, theoretical presentation of the field which researchers acrosstheir specialised communities might be interested in. And finally, thin liquid films are an interesting laboratory fo r a theorist to confront a well-established theory, hydrodynamics, with its limits. Liquids at surfaces take noticeof the surface they are placed upon, and this is reflected in their dynamics. And the polymers, when confined to thin films, can imprint mol ecular properties on the film dynamics. The material in the book is arranged in two Parts.Part I covers the basics of wetting and dewetting phenomena, and is of interest to researchers working in the field also outside of polymeric systems. It can be rea d as a brief introduction into the theory of wetting phase transitions.Part II delves exclusively into polymeric thin films, their mathematical description, and the confrontation with experiment |

Note: | Thermodynamics is an essential part of chemical physics and is of fundamental importance in physics, chemistry and engineering courses. This textbook takes an interdisciplinary approach to the subject and is therefore suitablefor undergraduates in al l those courses. The book is an introduction to phenomenological thermodynamics and its applications to phase transitions and chemical reactions, with some references to statistical mechanics. It strikes thebalance between the rigorousness of the Callen t ext and phenomenological approach of the Atkins text. The book is divided in three parts. The first introduces the postulates and laws of thermodynamics and complements these initialexplanations with practical examples. The second part is devoted to appli cations of thermodynamics to phase transitions in pure substances and mixtures. The third part covers thermodynamic systems in which chemical reactions takeplace. There are some sections on more advanced topics such as thermodynamic potentials, natural va riables, non-ideal mixtures and electrochemical reactions, which make this book of suitable also to post-graduate students. RobertHoyst (1963) is a professor at the Institute of Physical Chemistry Polish Academy of Sciences. He specializes in statistical physics, physical chemistry, biologistics and soft matter physics. He has published 182 papers and 2 books.He presented his works at multiple universities/institutes, e.g. Harvard, MIT, University of Chicago, ESPCI-Paris, ENS-Paris, several Max Planck Ins titutes, University of Tokyo, Oxford and Cambridge. He has over 17 yearsexperience in teaching thermodynamics for undergraduate students.

Note: | The thermodynamics of strongly interacting matter has become a profound and challenging area of modern physics, both in theory and in experiment. Statistical quantum chromodynamics, through analytical as well as numerical studies,provides the main th eoretical tool, while in experiment, high-energy nuclear collisions are the key for extensive laboratory investigations. The field therefore straddles statistical, particle and nuclear physics, both conceptually andin the methods of investigation used. Th is course-tested primer addresses above all the many young scientists starting their scientific research in this field, providing them with a general, self-contained introduction thatemphasizes in particular the basic concepts and ideas, with the aim of e xplaining why we do what we do. To achieve this goal, the present text concentrates mainly on equilibrium thermodynamics: first, the fundamental ideas of stronginteraction thermodynamics are introduced and then the main concepts and methods used in the st udy of the physics of complex systems are summarized. Subsequently, simplified phenomenological pictures, leading to critical behavior inhadronic matter and to hadron-quark phase transitions are introduced, followed by elements of finite-temperature latti ce QCD leading to the important results obtained in computer simulation studies of the lattice approach. Next, therelation of the resulting critical behavior to symmetry breaking/restoration in QCD is clarified before the text turns to the study of the QC D phase diagram. The presentation of bulk equilibrium thermodynamics is completed by studyingthe properties of the quark-gluon plasma as new state of strongly interacting matter.The final chapters of the book are devoted to more specific topics which aris e when nuclear collisions are considered as a tool for the experimentalstudy of QCD thermodynamics |

Note: | During a century, from the Van der Waals mean field description (1874) of gases to the introduction of renormalization group (RG techniques 1970), thermodynamics and statistical physics were just unable to account for theincredible universality which was observed in numerous critical phenomena. The great success of RG techniques is not only to solve perfectly this challenge of critical behaviour in thermal transitions but to introduce extremely usefultools in a wide field of daily situations where a system exhibits scale invariance. The introduction of scaling, scale invariance and universality concepts has been a significant turn in modern physics and more generally in naturalsciences. Since then, a new physics of scaling laws and critical exponents , rooted in scaling approaches, allows quantitative descriptions of numerous phenomena, ranging from phase transitions to earthquakes, polymer conformations,heartbeat rhythm, diffusion, interface growth and roughening, DNA sequence, dynamical systems, cha os and turbulence. The chapters are jointly written by an experimentalist and a theorist. This book aims at a pedagogical overview,offering to the students and researchers a thorough conceptual background and a simple account of a wide range of applicatio ns. It presents a complete tour of both the formal advances and experimental results associated with the notionof scaling, in physics, chemistry and biology |

Note: | Condensed matter systems where interactions are strong are inherently difficult to analyze theoretically. The situation is particularly interesting in low-dimensional systems, where quantum fluctuations play a crucial role. Here,the development of no n-perturbative methods and the study of integrable field theory have facilitated the understanding of the behavior of many quasi one- and two-dimensional strongly correlated systems. In view of the same rapiddevelopment that has taken place for both exper imental and numerical techniques, as well as the emergence of novel testing-grounds such as cold atoms or graphene, the current understanding of strongly correlated condensed mattersystems differs quite considerably from standard textbook presentations. The present volume of lecture notes aims to fill this gap in the literature by providing a collection of authoritative tutorial reviews, covering such topicsas quantum phase transitions of antiferromagnets and cuprate-based high-temperature superconductor s, electronic liquid crystal phases, graphene physics, dynamical mean field theory applied to strongly correlated systems, transportthrough quantum dots, quantum information perspectives on many-body physics, frustrated magnetism, statistical mechanics of classical and quantum computational complexity, and integrable methods in statistical field theory. As bothgraduate-level text and authoritative reference on this topic, this book will benefit newcomers and more experienced researchers in this field ali ke |

Note: | This book deals with theoretical thermodynamics and the statistical physics of electron and particle gases. While treating the laws of thermodynamics from both classical and quantum theoretical viewpoints, it posits that the basisof the statistical t heory of macroscopic properties of a system is the microcanonical distribution of isolated systems, from which all canonical distributions stem. To calculate the free energy, the Gibbs method is applied to ideal andnon-ideal gases, and also to a crystalli ne solid. Considerable attention is paid to the Fermi-Dirac and Bose-Einstein quantum statistics and its application to different quantum gases, and electron gas in both metals and semiconductorsis considered in a nonequilibrium state. A separate chapter treats the statistical theory of thermodynamic properties of an electron gas in a quantizing magnetic field |

Note: | Thermodynamics is a well-established discipline of physics for properties of matter in thermal equilibrium surroundings. Applying to crystals, however, the laws encounter undefined properties of crystal lattices, which thereforeneed to be determined for a clear and well-defined description of crystalline states. Thermodynamics of Crystalline States explores the roles played by order variables and dynamic lattices in crystals in a wholly new way. This book isdivided into three parts. The book begins b y clarifying basic concepts for stable crystals. Next, binary phase transitions are discussed to study collective motion of order variables, as described mostly as classical phenomena. In thethird part, the multi-electron system is discussed theoretically , as a quantum-mechanical example, for the superconducting state in metallic crystals. Throughout the book, the role played by the lattice is emphasized and examinedin-depth. Thermodynamics of Crystalline States is an introductory treatise and textbook on mesoscopic phenomena in solid states, constituting a basic subject in condensed matter physics. While this book serves as an invaluable guidefor advanced students in physics and engineering, it can also be useful as a reference for all professionals in r elated fields. Minoru Fujimoto is author of Physics of Classical Electromagnetism (Springer, 2007) and The Physics ofStructural Phase Transitions (Springer, 2005) |

Note: | This is a textbook which gradually introduces the student to the statistical mechanical study of the different phases of matter and to the phase transitions between them. Throughout, only simple models of both ordinary and softmatter are used but the se are studied in full detail. The subject is developed in a pedagogical manner, starting from the basics, going from the simple ideal systems to the interacting systems, and ending with the more modern topics.The latter include the renormalisation group approach to critical phenomena, the density functional theory of interfaces, the topological defects of nematic liquid crystals and the kinematic aspects of the phase transformation process.This textbook provides the student with a complete overview, inte ntionally at an introductory level, of the theory of phase transitions. References include suggestions for more detailed treatments and four appendices supply overviewsof the mathematical tools employed in the text |

Note: | We are living in an ever more complex world, an epoch where human actions can accordingly acquire far-reaching potentialities. Complex and adaptive dynamical systems are ubiquitous in the world surrounding us and require us toadapt to new realities a nd the way of dealing with them. This primer has been developed with the aim of conveying a wide range of commons-sense knowledge in the field of quantitative complex system science at an introductory level,providing an entry point to this both fascinatin g and vitally important subject. The approach is modular and phenomenology driven. Examples of emerging phenomena of generic importance treated in this book are: -- The small worldphenomenon in social and scale-free networks. -- Phase transitions and self -organized criticality in adaptive systems. -- Life at the edge of chaos and coevolutionary avalanches resulting from the unfolding of all living. -- Theconcept of living dynamical systems and emotional diffusive control within cognitive system theory. Te chnical course prerequisites are a basic knowledge of ordinary and partial differential equations and of statistics. Each chaptercomes with exercises and suggestions for further reading - solutions to the exercises are also provided |

Publisher: | Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | Springer e-book platform |
Note: | Springer 2013 e-book collections |
Note: | This book describes two main classes of non-equilibrium phase-transitions: (a) static and dynamics of transitions into an absorbing state, and (b) dynamical scaling in far-from-equilibrium relaxation behaviour and ageing. Thefirst volume begins with an introductory chapter which recalls the main concepts of phase-transitions, set for the convenience of the reader in an equilibrium context. The extension to non-equilibrium systems is made by using directedpercolation as the main paradigm of absorbing phase transitions and in view of the richness of the known results an entire chapter is devoted to it, including a discussion of recent experimental results. Scaling theories and a largeset of both numerical and analytical methods for the study of non-equ ilibrium phase transitions are thoroughly discussed. The techniques used for directed percolation are then extended to other universality classes and many importantresults on model parameters are provided for easy reference |

Note: | Springer 2013 e-book collections |
Note: | This text not only provides a thorough introduction to statistical physics and thermodynamics but also exhibits the universality of the chain of ideas that leads from the laws of microphysics to the macroscopic behaviour ofmatter. A wide range of app lications teaches students how to make use of the concepts, and many exercises will help to deepen their understanding. Drawing on both quantum mechanics and classical physics, the book follows modernresearch in statistical physics. Volume I discusses in detail the probabilistic description of quantum or classical systems, the Boltzmann-Gibbs distributions, the conservation laws, and the interpretation of entropy as missinginformation. Thermodynamics and electromagnetism in matter are dealt with, as well as applications to gases, both dilute and condensed, and to phase transitions. Volume II applies statistical methods to systems governed by quantumeffects, in particular to solid state physics, explaining properties due to the crystal structure or to the lattice excitations or to the electrons. Liquid helium is discussed and radiative equilibrium and transport are studied. Thelast chapters are devoted to non-equilibrium processes and to kinetic equations, with many applications included. This softcover ed ition accommodates the many requests to make this widely used and often cited classical text availableagain |

Note: | This book explores the foundations of hamiltonian dynamical systems and statistical mechanics, in particular phase transition, from the point of view of geometry and topology. A broad participation of topology in these fields hasbeen lacking and this book will provide a welcome overview of the current research in the area, in which the author himself is a pioneer. Using geometrical thinking to solve fundamental problems in these areas, compared to the purelyanalytical methods usually used in physics could be highly productive. The author skillfully guides the reader, whether mathematician or physicists through the background needed to understand and use these techniques. Dr. Marco Pettiniis affiliated with the Istituto Nazionale di Astrofisica Osser vatorio Astrofisico di Arretri in Firenze, Italy. From the foreword: It is in particular the quality of mind of the author and his deep physical, as well asmathematical insights, which make this book so special and inspiring. It is a must for those who wa nt to venture into a new approach to old problems or want to use new tools for new problems. -- Professor E. G. D. Cohen,Rockefellar University, New York |

Note: | This book is drawn from across many active fields of mathematics and physics, and has connections to atmospheric dynamics, spherical codes, graph theory, constrained optimization problems, Markov Chains, and Monte Carlo methods.It addresses how to ac cess interesting, original, and publishable research in statistical modeling of large-scale flows and several related fields. The authors f this book explicitly reach around the major branches of mathematics andphysics, showing how the use of a few straig htforward approaches can create a cornucopia of intriguing questions and the tools to answer them. In reading this book, the reader will learn how to research a topic and how to understandstatistical mechanics treatments of fluid dynamics. Of particular i nterest should be the application of Monte Carlo methods to problems like dispersal of points on the sphere, the phase transitions of in viscid fluid flows in modelsthat increasingly approach the conditions of actual planetary atmospheres, and the treatme nt of negative absolute temperatures and the effects these extremely high-energy states have on fluid flows. Special attention is given tospherical models as well. This book is intended for the upper-level undergraduate or the beginning graduate level cou rses of mathematics and physics. It will also be of interest to readers interested in statistical mechanics methodsapplied to fluid mechanics problems. Readers will gain an understanding of how to synthesize new mathematics by applying familiar tools in n ew ways, and develop new tools to fit particular applications |

Note: | The completely revised new edition of the classical book on Statistical Mechanics covers the basic concepts of equilibrium and non-equilibrium statistical physics. In addition to a deductive approach to equilibrium statistics andthermodynamics based on a single hypothesis - the form of the microcanonical density matrix - this book treats the most important elements of non-equilibrium phenomena. Intermediate calculations are presented in complete detail.Problems at the end of each chapter help student s to consolidate their understanding of the material. Beyond the fundamentals, this text demonstrates the breadth of the field and its great variety of applications. Modern areas such asrenormalization group theory, percolation, stochastic equations of mo tion and their applications to critical dynamics, kinetic theories, as well as fundamental considerations of irreversibility, are discussed. The text will be usefulfor advanced students of physics and other natural sciences a basic knowledge of quantum me chanics is presumed |

Note: | The physics of phase transitions is an important area at the crossroads of several fields that play central roles in materials sciences. In this second edition, new developments had been included which came up in the states ofmatter physics, in parti cular in the domain of nanomaterials and atomic Bose-Einstein condensates where progress is accelerating. The presentation of several chapters had been improved by bringing better information on some phasetransition mechanisms and by illustrating them wit h new application examples. This work deals with all classes of phase transitions in fluids and solids. It contains chapters on evaporation, melting, solidification, magnetictransitions, critical phenomena, superconductivity, etc., and is intended for gra duate students in physics and engineering for scientists it will serve both as an introduction and an overview. End-of-chapter problems and completeanswers are included |

Note: | Concepts, methods and techniques of statistical physics in the study of correlated, as well as uncorrelated, phenomena are being applied ever increasingly in the natural sciences, biology and economics in an attempt to understandand model the large v ariability and risks of phenomena. This is the first textbook written by a well-known expert that provides a modern up-to-date introduction for workers outside statistical physics. The emphasis of the book is on aclear understanding of concepts and method s, while it also provides the tools that can be of immediate use in applications. Although this book evolved out of a course for graduate students, it will be of great interest to researchersand engineers, as well as to post-docs in geophysics and meteoro logy |

Note: | This book is about the dynamics of coupled map lattices (CML) and of related spatially extended systems. It will be useful to post-graduate students and researchers seeking an overview of the state-of-the-art and of open problemsin this area of nonli near dynamics. The special feature of this book is that it describes the (mathematical) theory of CML and some related systems and their phenomenology, with some examples of CML modeling of concrete systems (fromphysics and biology). More precisely, the b ook deals with statistical properties of (weakly) coupled chaotic maps, geometric aspects of (chaotic) CML, monotonic spatially extended systems, and dynamical models of specific biologicalsystems |

Title: | The Statistical Mechanics of Financial Markets [electronic resource] |
Author(s): |
Johannes Voit R Balian W Beiglbck H Grosse W Thirring |
Date: | 2005 |
Edition: | Third Editon |
Publisher: | Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg |

Note: | Springer e-book platform |
Note: | Springer 2013 e-book collections |
Note: | This highly praised introductory treatment describes the parallels between statistical physics and finance - both those established in the 100-year long interaction between these disciplines, as well as new research results onfinancial markets. The r andom-walk technique, well known in physics, is also the basic model in finance, upon which are built, for example, the Black-Scholes theory of option pricing and hedging, plus methods of portfolio optimization.Here the underlying assumptions are assessed critically. Using empirical financial data and analogies to physical models such as fluid flows, turbulence, or superdiffusion, the book develops a more accurate description of financialmarkets based on random walks. With this approach, novel methods for derivative pricing and risk management can be formulated. Computer simulations of interacting-agent models provide insight into the mechanisms underlyingunconventional price dynamics. It is shown that stock exchange crashes can be modelled in ways analog ous to phase transitions and earthquakes, and sometimes have even been predicted successfully. This third edition of The StatisticalMechanics of Financial Markets especially stands apart from other treatments because it offers new chapters containing a pr actitioner's treatment of two important current topics in banking: the basic notions and tools of riskmanagement and capital requirements for financial institutions, including an overview of the new Basel II capital framework which may well set the risk m anagement standards in scores of countries for years to come |
