Title:Kripkes Worlds [electronic resource] : An Introduction to Modal Logics via Tableaux
Author(s): Olivier Gasquet
Andreas Herzig
Bilal Said
Franois Schwarzentruber
Date:2014
Publisher:Basel : Springer Basel : Imprint: Birkhuser
Size:1 online resource
Note:Possible worlds models were introduced by Saul Kripke in the early 1960s. Basically, a possible worlds model is nothing but a graph with labelled nodes and labelled edges. Such graphs provide semantics for various modal logics(alethic, temporal, epis temic and doxastic, dynamic, deontic, description logics) and also turned out useful for other nonclassical logics (intuitionistic, conditional, several paraconsistent and relevant logics). All these logics havebeen studied intensively in philosophical an d mathematical logic and in computer science, and have been applied increasingly in domains such as program semantics, artificial intelligence, and more recently in the semantic web.Additionally, all these logics were also studied proof theoretically. The proof systems for modal logics come in various styles: Hilbert style, natural deduction, sequents, and resolution. However, it is fair to say that the mostuniform and most successful such systems are tableaux systems. Given a logic and a formula, they al low one to check whether there is a model in that logic. This basically amounts to trying to build a model for the formula by building atree. This book follows a more general approach by trying to build a graph, the advantage being that a graph is closer to a Kripke model than a tree. It provides a step-by-step introduction to possible worlds semantics (and by that tomodal and other nonclassical logics) via the tableaux method. It is accompanied by a piece of software called LoTREC (www.irit.fr/Lotrec). L oTREC allows to check whether a given formula is true at a given world of a given model and tocheck whether a given formula is satisfiable in a given logic. The latter can be done immediately if the tableau system for that logic has already been implement ed in LoTREC. If this is not yet the case LoTREC offers the possibility toimplement a tableau system in a relatively easy way via a simple, graph-based, interactive language. >dy>

Title:Basics of Functional Analysis with Bicomplex Scalars, and Bicomplex Schur Analysis [electronic resource]
Author(s): Daniel Alpay
Maria Elena Luna-Elizarrars
Michael Shapiro
Daniele C Struppa
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book provides the foundations for a rigorous theory of functional analysis with bicomplex scalars. It begins with a detailed study of bicomplex and hyperbolic numbers, and then defines the notion of bicomplex modules. Afterintroducing a number o f norms and inner products on such modules (some of which appear in this volume for the first time), the authors develop the theory of linear functionals and linear operators on bicomplex modules. All of this mayserve for many different developments, just like the usual functional analysis with complex scalars, and in this book it serves as the foundational material for the construction and study of a bicomplex version of the well known Schuranalysis

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book is for students and researchers who have had a first year graduate level mathematicalstatistics course. It covers classical likelihood, Bayesian, and permutation inferencean introduction to basic asymptoticdistribution theory and modern top ics like M-estimation,the jackknife, and the bootstrap. R code is woven throughout the text, and there are a large numberof examples and problems. An important goal has been to make the topicsaccessible to a wide audience, with little overt relianceon mea sure theory. A typical semester course consists of Chapters 1-6 (likelihood-based estimationand testing, Bayesian inference, basic asymptotic results) plus selectionsfrom M-estimation and related testing and resampling methodology. Dennis Boos and Len Ste fanski are professors in the Department of Statistics at North Carolina State.Their research has been eclectic, often with a robustness angle,although Stefanski is also known forresearch concentrated on measurement error, including a co-authored book on n on-linear measurementerror models. In recent years the authors have jointly worked on variable selection methods.

Title:Dynamical Systems [electronic resource] : An Introduction
Author(s): Luis Barreira
Claudia Valls
Date:2013
Publisher:London : Springer London : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The theory of dynamical systems is a broad and active research subject with connections to most parts of mathematics. Dynamical Systems: An Introduction undertakes the difficult task to provide a self-contained and compactintroduction. Topics covered include topological, low-dimensional, hyperbolic and symbolic dynamics, as well as a brief introduction to ergodic theory. In particular, the authors consider topological recurrence, topological entropy,homeomorphisms and diffeomorphisms of the circle, S harkovski's ordering, the Poincar-Bendixson theory, and the construction of stable manifolds, as well as an introduction to geodesic flows and the study of hyperbolicity (the latteris often absent in a first introduction). Moreover, the authors introduce the basics of symbolic dynamics, the construction of symbolic codings, invariant measures, Poincar's recurrence theorem and Birkhoff's ergodic theorem. Theexposition is mathematically rigorous, concise and direct: all statements (except for some results f rom other areas) are proven. At the same time, the text illustrates the theory with many examples and 140 exercises of variable levelsof difficulty. The only prerequisites are a background in linear algebra, analysis and elementary topology. This is a tex tbook primarily designed for a one-semester or two-semesters course at the advanced undergraduate or beginninggraduate levels. It can also be used for self-study and as a starting point for more advanced topics

Title:Self-adjoint Extensions in Quantum Mechanics [electronic resource] : General Theory and Applications to Schrdinger and Dirac Equations with Singular Potentials

B.L Voronov
Date:2012
Publisher:Boston : Birkhuser Boston

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Quantization of physical systems requires a correct definition of quantum-mechanical observables, such as the Hamiltonian, momentum, etc., as self-adjoint operators in appropriate Hilbert spaces and their spectral analysis.Though a nave treatment exi sts for dealing with such problems, it is based on finite-dimensional algebra or even infinite-dimensional algebra with bounded operators, resulting in paradoxes and inaccuracies. A propertreatment of these problems requires invoking certain nontrivial n otions and theorems from functional analysis concerning the theory of unbounded self-adjoint operators and the theory of self-adjoint extensions of symmetric operators.Self-adjoint Extensions in Quantum Mechanics begins by considering quantization problem s in general, emphasizing the nontriviality of consistent operator construction by presenting paradoxes of the nave treatment. The necessarymathematical background is then built by developing the theory of self-adjoint extensions. Through examination of v arious quantum-mechanical systems, the authors show how quantization problems associated with the correct definitionof observables and their spectral analysis can be treated consistently for comparatively simple quantum-mechanical systems. Systems that ar e examined include free particles on an interval, particles in a number of potential fieldsincluding delta-like potentials, the one-dimensional Calogero problem, the AharonovBohm problem, and the relativistic Coulomb problem. This well-organized text is m ost suitable for graduate students and postgraduates interested indeepening their understanding of mathematical problems in quantum mechanics beyond the scope of those treated in standard textbooks. The book may also serve as a useful resource for mathema ticians and researchers in mathematical andtheoretical physics

Title:Delay Compensation for Nonlinear, Adaptive, and PDE Systems [electronic resource]
Author(s): Miroslav Krstic

Publisher:Boston : Birkhuser Boston
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Some of the most common dynamic phenomena that arise in engineering practiceactuator and sensor delaysfall outside the scope of standard finite-dimensional system theory. The first attempt at infinite-dimensional feedbackdesign in the field of contro l systemsthe Smith predictorhas remained limited to linear finite-dimensional plants over the last five decades. Shedding light on new opportunities in predictor feedback, this book significantlybroadens the set of techniques available to a mathematician or engineer working on delay systems. The book is a collection of tools and techniques that make predictor feedback ideas applicable to nonlinear systems, systems modeled byPDEs, systems with highly uncertain or completely unknown input/output delays, and systems whose actuator or sensor dynamics are modeled by more general hyperbolic or parabolic PDEs, rather than by pure delay. Specific features andtopics include: * A construction of explicit Lyapunov functionals, which can be used in control design or stability analysis, leading to a resolution of several long-standing problems in predictor feedback. * A detailed treatment ofindividual classes of problemsnonlinear ODEs, parabolic PDEs, first-order hyperbolic PDEs, second-order hyperbolic PDEs, known ti me-varying delays, unknown constant delayswill help the reader master the techniques presented. *Numerous examples ease a student new to delay systems into the topic. * Minimal prerequisites: the basics of function spaces and Lyapunov theory for ODEs. * T he basics of Poincar and Agmon inequalities, Lyapunov and input-to-statestability, parameter projection for adaptive control, and Bessel functions are summarized in appendices for the readers convenience. Delay Compensation for Nonlinear, Adaptive, and PD E Systems is an excellent reference for graduatestudents, researchers, and practitioners in mathematics, systems control, as well as chemical, mechanical, electrical, computer, ae

Note:Special functions are pervasive in all fields of science and industry. The most well-known application areas are in physics, engineering, chemistry, computer science and statistics. Because of their importance, several books andwebsites (see for inst ance http: functions.wolfram.com) and a large collection of papers have been devoted to these functions. Of the standard work on the subject, namely the Handbook of Mathematical Functions with formulas, graphs andmathematical tables edited by Milton Abram owitz and Irene Stegun, the American National Institute of Standards claims to have sold over 700 000 copies! But so far no project has been devoted to the systematic study of continuedfraction representations for these functions. This handbook is the res ult of such an endeavour. We emphasise that only 10% of the continued fractions contained in this book, can also be found in the Abramowitz and Stegun project or atthe Wolfram website!

Title:Construction of Mappings for Hamiltonian Systems and Their Applications [electronic resource]
Author(s): Sadrilla S Abdullaev
Date:2006
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Based on the method of canonical transformation of variables and the classical perturbation theory, this innovative book treats the systematic theory of symplectic mappings for Hamiltonian systems and its application to the studyof the dynamics and c haos of various physical problems described by Hamiltonian systems. It develops a new, mathematically-rigorous method to construct symplectic mappings which replaces the dynamics of continuous Hamiltonian systemsby the discrete ones. Applications of the m apping methods encompass the chaos theory in non-twist and non-smooth dynamical systems, the structure and chaotic transport in the stochastic layer, the magnetic field lines in magneticallyconfinement devices of plasmas, ray dynamics in waveguides, etc. The book is intended for postgraduate students and researches, physicists and astronomers working in the areas of plasma physics, hydrodynamics, celestial mechanics,dynamical astronomy, and accelerator physics. It should also be useful for applied mathema ticians involved in analytical and numerical studies of dynamical systems
