Fauve of the masterpiece experiment, the von Krmn Sodium or VKS experiment,which established in 2007 the spontaneous generation of a magnetic field in a strongly turbulent flow, inc luding its reversal, a model of Earths magnetic field a simple toy model by the theorist U. Smilansky the discreteLaplacian on finite d-regular expander graphs which allows one to grasp the essential ingredients of quantum chaos, including its fundament al link to random matrix theory a review by the mathematical physicists P. Bourgade andJ.P. Keating, which illuminates the fascinating connection between the distribution of zeros of the Riemann -function and the statistics of eigenvalues of random unitar y matrices, which could ultimately provide a spectralinterpretation for the zeros of the -function, thus a proof of the celebrated Riemann Hypothesis itself an article by a pioneer of experimental quantum chaos, H-J. Stckmann, who shows in detail how expe riments on the propagationof microwaves in 2D or 3D chaotic cavities beautifully verify theoretical predictions a thorough presentation by the mathematical physicist S.

Title:Biomechanics of the Brain [electronic resource]
Author(s): Karol Miller
Date:2011
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The mechanical properties of living tissues continue to be the major topic of biomechanical investigations. Most researchers have investigated load-bearing tissues, such as bones, ligaments, muscles and other components of themusculoskeletal system, blood vessels (and blood), lungs, skin and hair. Until recently, very soft tissues of organs whose role has little or nothing to do with transmitting mechanical loads have been outside the scope of themainstream biomechanical research. These neglected org ans include the liver, kidneys, prostate and other abdominal organs, and especially the brain. Increased interest in the biomechanics of soft tissues, particularly the brain,as evidenced by the increased number of publications in this area, has motivated this effort to summarize recent developments. Biomechanics of the Brain will take the reader to the forefront of current research. Covering topics frombrain anatomy and imaging to sophisticated methods of modeling brain injury and neurosurgery, to the cut ting edge methods in analyzing cerebrospinal fluid and blood flow, this book is the first comprehensive reference in the field ofbiomechanics of the brain. Experienced biomechanics researchers as well as those new to the field will find parts of this book useful

Title:Shapes and Diffeomorphisms [electronic resource]
Author(s): Laurent Younes
Date:2010
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Shapes are complex objects, which are difficult to apprehend as mathematical entities, in ways that can also be amenable to computerized analysis and interpretation. This volume provides the background that is required for thispurpose, including diff erent approaches that can be used to model shapes, and algorithms that are available to analyze them. It explores, in particular, the interesting connections between shapes and the objects that naturally act onthem, diffeomorphisms. The book is, as far as possible, self-contained, with an appendix that describes a series of classical topics in mathematics (Hilbert spaces, differential equations, Riemannian manifolds) and sections thatrepresent the state of the art in the analysis of shapes and their defor mations. A direct application of what is presented in the book is a branch of the computerized analysis of medical images, called computational anatomy

The Handbook is organized by areas of acoustics, with recognized leaders coordinating the self-containedchapters of each section. It brings together a wide range of perspectives from over 100 authors to reveal the interdisciplinary nature of signal processing in acoustics. Success in acoustic applications often requires juggling both theacoustic and the signal processing parameters of the problem. This handbook brings the key issues from both into perspective and is complementary to other reference material on the two subjects. It is a unique resource for experts andpractitioners alike to find new ideas and techniques within the div ersity of signal processing in acoustics

Title:Commutative Algebras of Toeplitz Operators on the Bergman Space [electronic resource]
Author(s): Nikolai L Vasilevski
Date:2008
Publisher:Basel : Birkhuser Basel
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book is devoted to the spectral theory of commutative C*-algebras of Toeplitz operators on the Bergman space and its applications. For each such commutative algebra there is a unitary operator which reduces Toeplitzoperators from this algebra to certain multiplication operators, thus providing their spectral type representations. This yields a powerful research tool giving direct access to the majority of the important properties of the Toeplitzoperators studied herein, such as boundedness, comp actness, spectral properties, invariant subspaces. The presence and exploitation of these spectral type representations forms the core for many results presented in the book. Amongother results it contains a criterion of when the algebras are commutative on each commonly considered weighted Bergman space together with their explicit descriptions a systematic study of Toeplitz operators with unbounded symbols aclarification of the difference between compactness of commutators and semi-commutators of Toepli tz operators the theory of Toeplitz and related operators with symbols having more than two limit values at boundary points and a kindof semi-classical analysis of spectral properties of Toeplitz operators. The book is addressed to a wide audience of math ematicians, from graduate students to researchers, whose primary interests lie in complex analysis and operatortheory

Title:Lattice [electronic resource] : Multivariate Data Visualization with R
Author(s): Deepayan Sarkar
Date:2008
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:R is rapidly growing in popularity as the environment of choice for data analysis and graphics both in academia and industry. Lattice brings the proven design of Trellis graphics (originally developed for S by William S.Cleveland and colleagues at Be ll Labs) to R, considerably expanding its capabilities in the process. Lattice is a powerful and elegant high level data visualization system that is sufficient for most everyday graphics needs, yetflexible enough to be easily extended to handle demands o f cutting edge research. Written by the author of the lattice system, this book describes it in considerable depth, beginning with the essentials and systematically delving intospecific low levels details as necessary. No prior experience with lattice is required to read the book, although basic familiarity with R is assumed. The book contains close to150 figures produced with lattice. Many of the examplesemphasize principles of good graphical design almost all use real data sets that are publicly availab le in various R packages. All code and figures in the book are also available online, along with supplementary material covering moreadvanced topics. Deepayan Sarkar won the 2004 John M. Chambers Statistical Software Award for writing lattice while he was a graduate student in Statistics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He is currently doing postdoctoralresearch in the Computational Biology program at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, a member of the R Core Team, and an active participant on the R mailing lists

Date:2005
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:In recent years birdsong has developed into an extremely interesting problem for researchers in several branches of the scientific community. The reason is that of the approximately 10,000 species of birds known to exist, some4000 share with humans ( and just a few other species in the animal kingdom) a remarkable feature: their acquisition of vocalization requires a certain degree of exposure to a tutor. Between the complex neural architecture involved inthe process and the song itself, stands a deli cate apparatus that the bird must control with incredible precision. This book deals with the physical mechanisms at work in the production of birdsong, the acoustic effects that the avianvocal organ is capable of generating, and the nature of the neural instructions needed to drive it. The book provides fascinating reading for physicists, biologists and general readers alike
