Title: | Historical Evolution Toward Achieving Ultrahigh Vacuum in JEOL Electron Microscopes [electronic resource] |
Author(s): |
Nagamitsu Yoshimura |
Date: | 2014 |
Publisher: | Tokyo : Springer Japan : Imprint: Springer |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | This book describes the developmental history of the vacuum system of the transmission electron microscope (TEM) at the Japan Electron Optics Laboratory (JEOL) from its inception to its use in todays high-technologymicroscopes. The author and his col leagues were engaged in developing vacuum technology for electron microscopes (JEM series) at JEOL for many years. This volume presents a summary and explanation of their work and the technology thatmakes possible a clean ultrahigh vacuum. The typical use rs of the TEM are top-level researchers working at the frontiers of new materials or with new biological specimens. They often use the TEM under extremely severe conditions, withproblems sometimes occurring in the vacuum system of the microscopes. JEOL en gineers then must work as quickly as possible to improve the vacuum evacuation system so as to prevent the recurrence of such problems. Among the wealth ofexplanatory material in this book are examples of users reports of problems in the vacuum system of the JEM, such as the occurrence of a micro-discharge and the back-streaming of the diffusion pump (DP) oil vapor. This work is avaluable resource for researchers who use the transmission electron microscope and for engineers and scientists interested in i ts technology |

Date: | 2014 |
Publisher: | Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | This book features 13 papers presented at the Fifth International Symposium on Recurrence Plots, held August 2013 in Chicago, IL. It examines recent applications and developments in recurrence plots and recurrence quantifi cationanalysis (RQA) with s pecial emphasis on biological and cognitive systems and the analysis of coupled systems using cross-recurrence methods. Readers will discover new applications and insights into a range of systems provided byrecurrence plot analysis and new theoretical and mathematical developments in recurrence plots. Recurrence plot based analysis is a powerful tool that operates on real-world complex systems that are nonlinear, non-stationary, noisy, ofany statistical distribution, free of any particular model type, and not particularly long. Quantitative analyses promote the detection of system state changes, synchronized dynamical regimes, or classifi cation of system states. Th ebook will be of interest to an interdisciplinary audience of recurrence plot users and re searchers interested in time series analysis of complex systems in general |

Title: | Irreversibility and Dissipation in Microscopic Systems [electronic resource] |
Author(s): |
dgar Roldn |
Date: | 2014 |
Publisher: | Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | After an insightful introductory part on recent developments in the thermodynamics of small systems, the author presents his contribution to a long-standing problem, namely the connection between irreversibility and dissipation.He develops a method b ased on recent results on fluctuation theorems that is able to estimate dissipation using only information acquired in a single, sufficiently long, trajectory of a stationary nonequilibrium process. This part endswith a remarkable application of the metho d to the analysis of biological data, in this case, the fluctuations of a hair bundle. The third part studies the energetics of systems that undergo symmetry breaking transitions. Thesetheoretical ideas lead to, among other things, an experimental realiza tion of a Szilard engine using manipulated colloids. This work has the potential for important applications ranging from the analysis of biological media to thedesign of novel artificial nano-machines |

Title: | Input Modeling with Phase-Type Distributions and Markov Models [electronic resource] : Theory and Applications |
Author(s): |
Peter Buchholz Jan Kriege Iryna Felko |
Date: | 2014 |
Publisher: | Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | Containing a summary of several recent results on Markov-based input modeling in a coherent notation, this book introduces and compares algorithms for parameter fitting and gives an overview of available software tools in thearea. Due to progress mad e in recent years with respect to new algorithms to generate PH distributions and Markovian arrival processes from measured data, the models outlined are useful alternatives to other distributions or stochasticprocesses used for input modeling. Graduate s tudents and researchers in applied probability, operations research and computer science along with practitioners using simulation or analytical models for performance analysis and capacityplanning will find the unified notation and up-to-date results pre sented useful. Input modeling is the key step in model based system analysis to adequately describe the load of a system using stochastic models. The goal of inputmodeling is to find a stochastic model to describe a sequence ofmeasurements from a real sys tem to model for example the inter-arrival times of packets in a computer network or failure times of components in a manufacturing plant.Typical application areas are performance and dependability analysis of computer systems, communication networks, log istics or manufacturing systems but also the analysis of biological or chemical reaction networks and similarproblems. Often the measured values have a high variability and are correlated. Its been known for a long time that Markov based models like phase type distributions or Markovian arrival processes are very general and allow one tocapture even complex behaviors. However, the parameterization of these models results often in a complex and non-linear optimization problem. Only recently, several new re sults about the modeling capabilities of Markov based models andalgorithms to fit the parameters of those models have been published |

Author(s): |
Vitaly Volpert |
Date: | 2014 |
Publisher: | Basel : Springer Basel : Imprint: Birkhuser |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | If we had to formulate in one sentence what this book is about it might be How partial differential equations can help to understand heat explosion, tumor growth or evolution of biological species. These and many otherapplications are described by re action-diffusion equations. The theory of reaction-diffusion equations appeared in the first half of the last century. In the present time, it is widely used in population dynamics, chemical physics,biomedical modelling. The purpose of this book is to pre sent the mathematical theory of reaction-diffusion equations in the context of their numerous applications. We will go from the general mathematical theory to specific equationsand then to their applications. Mathematical anaylsis of reaction-diffusion eq uations will be based on the theory of Fredholm operators presented in the first volume. Existence, stability and bifurcations of solutions will be studiedfor bounded domains and in the case of travelling waves. The classical theory of reaction-diffusion equations and new topics such as nonlocal equations and multi-scale models in biology will be considered |

Note: | Nuclear physics is an exciting, broadly faceted field. It spans a wide range of topics, reaching from nuclear structure physics to high-energy physics, astrophysics and medical physics (heavy ion tumor therapy). New developmentsare presented in this volume and the status of research is reviewed. A major focus is put on nuclear structure physics, dealing with superheavy elements and with various forms of exotic nuclei: strange nuclei, very neutron rich nuclei,nuclei of antimatter. Also quantum electro dynamics of strong fields is addressed, which is linked to the occurrence of giant nuclear systems in, e.g., U+U collisions. At high energies nuclear physics joins with elementary particlephysics. Various chapters address the theory of elementary matter a t high densities and temperature, in particular the quark gluon plasma which is predicted by quantum chromodynamics (QCD) to occur in high-energy heavy ion collisions.In the field of nuclear astrophysics, the properties of neutron stars and quark stars ar e discussed. A topic which transcends nuclear physics is discussed in two chapters: The proposed pseudocomplex extension of Einstein's GeneralRelativity leads to the prediction that there are no black holes and that big bang cosmology has to be revised. F inally, the interdisciplinary nature of this volume is further accentuated by chapters on protein folding and onmagnetoreception in birds and many other animals |

Note: | Many mathematical models of physical, biological and social systems involve partial differential equations (PDEs). The desire to understand and influence these systems naturally leads to considering problems of control andoptimization. This book pres ents important topics in the areas of control of PDEs and of PDE-constrained optimization, covering the full spectrum from analysis to numerical realization and applications. Leading scientists addresscurrent topics such as non-smooth optimization, Hamilt onJacobiBellmann equations, issues in optimization and control of stochastic partial differential equations, reduced-order models and domain decomposition, discretizationerror estimates for optimal control problems, and control of quantum-dynamical system s. These contributions originate from the International Workshop on Control and Optimization of PDEs in Mariatrost in October 2011. This book isan excellent resource for students and researchers in control or optimization of differential equations. Reader s interested in theory or in numerical algorithms will find this book equally useful |

Note: | This book deals with the modeling, analysis and simulation of problems arising in the life sciences, and especially in biological processes. The models and findings presented result from intensive discussions with microbiologists,doctors and medical staff, physicists, chemists and industrial engineers and are based on experimental data. They lead to a new class of degenerate density-dependent nonlinear reaction-diffusion convective equations that simultaneouslycomprise two kinds of degeneracy: porous -medium and fast-diffusion type degeneracy. To date, this class is still not clearly understood in the mathematical literature and thus especially interesting. The author both derivesrealistic life science models and their above-mentioned governing equat ions of the degenerate types and systematically studies these classes of equations. In each concrete case well-posedness, the dependence of solutions on boundaryconditions reflecting some properties of the environment, and the large-time behavior of solut ions are investigated and in some instances also studied numerically |

Note: | This book primarily concerns quasilinear and semilinear elliptic and parabolic partial differential equations, inequalities, and systems. The exposition leads the reader through the general theory based on abstract (pseudo-)monotone or accretive oper ators as fast as possible towards the analysis of concrete differential equations, which have specific applications in continuum (thermo-) mechanics of solids and fluids, electrically (semi-) conductive media,modelling of biological systems, or in mechani cal engineering. Selected parts aremainly an introduction into the subject while some others form an advanced textbook. Thesecond edition simplifies and extends the exposition atparticular spots and augments the applications especially towards thermally coupled systems, magnetism, and more. The intended audience is graduate and PhD students as well as researchers in the theory of partial differential equationsor in mathematical modelling of distributed parameter systems. ------ The monograph contains a w ealth of material in both the abstract theory of steady-state or evolution equations of monotone and accretive type and concreteapplications to nonlinear partial differential equations from mathematical modeling. The organization of the material is well d one, and the presentation, although concise, is clear, elegant and rigorous. () this book is a notableaddition to the existing literature. Also, it certainly will prove useful to engineers, physicists, biologists and other scientists interested in the ana lysis of (...) nonlinear differential models of the real world.

Note: | This eleventh volume in the Poincar Seminar Series presents an interdisciplinary perspective on the concept of Time, which poses some of the most challenging questions in science. Five articles, written by the Fields medalistC. Villani, the two outst anding theoretical physicists T. Damour and C. Jarzynski, the leading experimentalist C. Salomon, and the famous philosopher of science H. Price, describe recent developments related to the mathematical,physical, experimental, and philosophical facets of this fascinating concept. These articles are also highly pedagogical, as befits their origin in lectures to a broad scientific audience. Highlights include a description of themanifold fundamental physical issues in play with time, in particular with the changes of perspective implied by Special and General Relativity a mathematically precise discussion of irreversibility and entropy in the context ofBoltzmann's and Vlasov's equations a thorough survey of the recently developed thermodynamics at the nanos cale, the scale most relevant to biological physics a description of the new cold atom space clockPHARAO to beinstalled in 2015 onboard the International Space Station, which will allow a test of Einstein's gravitational shift with a record precision of 2 10-6, and enable a test of the stability over time of the fundamental constants ofphysics, an issue first raised by Dirac in 1937 and last, but not least, a logical and clarifying philosophical discussion of Time's arrow, a phrase first coined by Edding ton in 1928 in a challenge to physics to resolve thepuzzle of the time-asymmetry of our universe, and echoed here in a short pome en prose by C. de Mitry. This book should be of broad general interest to physicists, mathematicians, and philosophers |

Note: | Dynamics of Information Systems: Algorithmic Approaches presents recent developments and results found by participants of the Fourth International Conference on the Dynamics of Information Systems, which took place at theUniversity of Florida, Gaines ville FL, USA on February 2022, 2012. The purpose of this conference was to bring together scientists and engineers from industry, government, and universities to exchange knowledge and results in abroad range of topics relevant to the theory and practice of the dynamics of information systems. Dynamics of Information plays an increasingly critical role in our society. The influence of information on social, biological, genetic,and military systems must be better understood to achieve large advances in th e capability and understanding of these systems. Applications are widespread and include: detection of terrorist networks, design of highly efficientbusinesses, computer networks, quantum entanglement, genome modeling, multi-robotic systems, and industria l and manufacturing safety. The book contains state-of-the-art work on theory and practice relevant to the dynamics ofinformation systems. It covers algorithmic approaches to numerical computations with infinite and infinitesimal numbers presents importan t problems arising in service-oriented systems, such as dynamic composition and analysis ofmodern service-oriented information systems and estimation of customer service times on a rail network from GPS data addresses the complexity of the problems arisin g in stochastic and distributed systems and discusses modulatingcommunication for improving multi-agent learning convergence. Network issuesin particular minimum-risk maximum-clique problems, vulnerability of sensor networks, influence diffusion, communit y detection, and link prediction insocial network analysis, as well as a comparative analysis of algorithms for transmission network expansion planningare described in later chapters |

Note: | Since the parameters in dynamical systems of biological interest are inherently positive and bounded, bounded noises are a natural way to model the realistic stochastic fluctuations of a biological system that are caused by itsinteraction with the ex ternal world. Bounded Noises in Physics, Biology, and Engineering is the first contributed volumedevoted to the modeling of bounded noises in theoretical and applied statistical mechanics, quantitative biology,and mathematical physics.It gives an overview of the currentstate-of-the-art and isintended to stimulatefurther research. The volumeis organized in four parts. The first part presents the main kinds of bounded noises andtheir applications in theoretical physics. The theory of bounded stochastic pro cesses is intimately linked to its applications to mathematical and statistical physics, and it would be difficult and unnatural to separate the theory fromits physical applications. The second is devoted to framing bounded noises in the theory of random dynamical systems and random bifurcations, while the third is devoted to applications of bounded stochastic processes in biology, one ofthe major areas of potential applications of this subject. The final part concerns the application of bounded stochasti c processes in mechanical and structural engineering, the area where the renewed interest for non-Gaussian boundednoises started. Pure mathematicians working on stochastic calculus will find here a rich source of problems that are challenging from the poi nt of view of contemporary nonlinear analysis. Bounded Noises in Physics, Biology, andEngineering is intended for scientists working on stochastic processes with an interest in both fundamental issues and applications.It will appeal to a broad range of a pplied mathematicians, mathematical biologists, physicists,engineers, and researchers in other fields interested in complexity theory. Itis accessible to anyonewith a working knowl |

Note: | Mathematics for the Life Sciences provides present and future biologists with the mathematical concepts and tools needed to understand and use mathematical models and read advanced mathematical biology books. It presentsmathematics in biological cont exts, focusing on the central mathematical ideas, and providing detailed explanations. The author assumes no mathematics background beyond algebra and precalculus. Calculus is presented as aone-chapter primer that is suitable for readers who have not stud ied the subject before, as well as readers who have taken a calculus course and need a review. This primer is followed by a novel chapter on mathematical modeling thatbegins with discussions of biological data and the basic principles of modeling. The rem ainder of the chapter introduces the reader to topics in mechanistic modeling (deriving models from biological assumptions) and empiricalmodeling (using data to parameterize and select models). The modeling chapter contains a thorough treatment of key ide as and techniques that are often neglected in mathematics books. It also provides the reader with a sophisticatedviewpoint and the essential background needed to make full use of the remainder of the book, which includes two chapters on probability and it s applications to inferential statistics and three chapters on discrete and continuousdynamical systems. The biological content of the book is self-contained and includes many basic biology topics such as the genetic code, Mendelian genetics, population d ynamics, predator-prey relationships, epidemiology, andimmunology. The large number of problem sets include some drill problems along with a large number of case studies. The latter are divided into step-by-step problems and sorted into the appropriate se ction, allowing readers togradually develop complete investigations from understanding the biological assumptions to a complete analysis |

Note: | This self-contained book systematically explores the statistical dynamics on and of complex networks with a specialfocus on time-varying networks. In the constantly changing modern world, there is an urgent need to understandproblems related to syste ms that dynamically evolve in either structure or function, or both. Thiswork is an attempt to address such problems in the framework of complex networks. Dynamics on and of Complex Networks, Volume 2:Applications to Time-Varying Dynamical Systems is a co llection of surveys and cutting-edge research contributions exploring key issues, challenges, and characteristics of dynamical networks that emerge in various complex systems.Toward this goal, the work is thematically organized into three main sections wi th the primary thrust on time-varying networks: Part I studies social dynamics Part II focuses on community identification and Part III illustratesdiffusion processes. The contributed chapters in this volume are intended to promote cross-fertilization in several research areas and will be valuable to newcomers in the field, experienced researchers, practitioners, and graduatestudents interested in pursuing research in dynamical networks with applications to computer science, statistical physics, nonlinear dynamics, linguistics, and the social sciences. This volume follows Dynamics On and Of ComplexNetworks: Applications to Biology, Computer Science, and the Social Sciences (2009), ISBN 978-0-8176-4750-6 |

Note: | Bayesian Networks in R with Applications in Systems Biology introduces the reader to the essential concepts in Bayesian network modeling and inference in conjunction with examples in the open-source statistical environment R. Thelevel of sophisticati on is gradually increased across the chapters with exercises and solutions for enhanced understanding and hands-on experimentation of key concepts. Applications focus on systems biology with emphasis on modelingpathways and signaling mechanisms from high throughput molecular data. Bayesian networks have proven to be especially useful abstractions in this regards as exemplified by their ability to discover new associations while validatingknown ones. It is also expected that the prevalence of publicly avai lable high-throughput biological and healthcare data sets may encourage the audience to explore investigating novel paradigms using the approaches presented in thebook |

Note: | Design happens everywhere, whether in animate objects (e.g., dendritic lung structures, bacterial colonies, and corals), inanimate patterns (river basins, beach slope, and dendritic crystals), social dynamics (pedestrian trafficflows), or engineered systems (heat dissipation in electronic circuitry). This design in nature often takes on remarkably similar patterns, which can be explained under one unifying Constructal Law. This book explores theunifying power of the Constructal Law and its applicatio ns in all domains of design generation and evolution, ranging from biology and geophysics to globalization, energy, sustainability, and security. The Constructal Law accountsfor the universal tendency of flow systems to morph into evolving configurations that provide greater and easier access over time. The Constructal Law resolves the many and contradictory ad hoc statements of optimality, enddesign, and destiny in nature, such as minimum and maximum entropy production and minimum and maximum flow resist ance, and also explains the designs that are observed and copied in biomimetics. Constructal Law and the UnifyingPrinciple of Design covers the fundamentals of Constructal Theory and Design, as well as presenting a variety of state-of-the-art applications . Experts from the biological, physical and social sciences demonstrate the unification ofall design phenomena in nature, and apply this knowledge to novel designs in modern engineering, such as vascularization for self-healing and self-cooling materials for aircraft, and tree fins and cavities for heat transferenhancement. Captures a world-wide movement toward design as science Defines the place of the Constructal Law in physics and thermodynamics Features an interdisciplinaryapproach that spans phys ics, biology, engineering and the social sciences Demonstrates that a single law of physics governs all the pheno |

Title: | Intracellular Signaling Mediators in the Circulatory and Ventilatory Systems [electronic resource] |

Note: | The volumes in this authoritative series present a multidisciplinary approach to modeling and simulation of flows in the cardiovascular and ventilatory systems, especially multiscale modeling and coupled simulations. Thecardiovascular and respiratory systems are tightly coupled, as their primary function is to supply oxygen to and remove carbon dioxide from the body's cells. Because physiological conduits have deformable and reactive walls,macroscopic flow behavior and prediction must be coupled to p henomenological models of nano- and microscopic events in a corrector scheme of regulated mechanisms when the vessel lumen caliber varies markedly. Therefore, investigationof flows of blood and air in physiological conduits requires an understanding of th e biology, chemistry, and physics of these systems together with the mathematical tools to describe their functioning. Volume 4 is devoted to major setsof intracellular mediators that transmit signals upon stimulation of cell-surface receptors. Activation of signaling effectors triggers the release of substances stored in cellular organelles and/or gene transcription and proteinsynthesis. Complex stages of cell signaling can be studied using proper mathematical models, once the role of each component is c arefully handled. Volume 4 also reviews various categories of cytosolic and/or nuclear mediators andillustrates some major signal transduction pathways, such as NFkappaB axis, oxygen sensing, and mechanotransduction. Reviews signaling pathways in the regu lation of circulatory and respiratory function Describes ion and molecularcarriers and receptors Integrates biology, chemistry, and physics for a multidisciplinary understanding of physiological flows |

Note: | Complexity occurs in biological and synthetic systems alike. This general phenomenon has been addressed in recent publications by investigators in disciplines ranging from chemistry and biology to psychology and philosophy.Studies of complexity for m olecular scientists have focussed on breaking symmetry, dissipative processes, and emergence. Investigators in the social and medical sciences have focused on neurophenomenology, cognitive approaches andself-consciousness. Complexity in both structure and function is inherent in many scientific disciplines of current significance and also in technologies of current importance that are rapidly evolving to address global societalneeds. Several of these multifaceted scientific disciplines are addressed in th is book including complexity from the general and philosophical perspective, magnetic phenomena, control of self assembly and function in largemulticomponent clusters, application of theory to probe structure and mechanism in highly complex molecular spec ies, and the design of multifunctional nanoscale molecules of value in decontamination and solar fuels research. Eachchapter is both a review and addresses some ongoing challenges, thus each should provide a good preparation for further work in these high ly active areas of research endeavour. |

Title: | The Linear Algebra a Beginning Graduate Student Ought to Know [electronic resource] |
Author(s): |

Note: | Linear algebra is a living, active branch of mathematics which is central to almost all other areas of mathematics, both pure and applied, as well as to computer science, to the physical, biological, and social sciences, and toengineering. It encompa sses an extensive corpus of theoretical results as well as a large and rapidly-growing body of computational techniques. Unfortunately, in the past decade, the content of linear algebra courses required tocomplete an undergraduate degree in mathematics ha s been depleted to the extent that they fail to provide a sufficient theoretical or computational background. Students are not only less able to formulate or even follow mathematicalproofs, they are also less able to understand the mathematics of the nume rical algorithms they need for applications. Certainly, the material presented in the average undergraduate course is insufficient for graduate study. This bookis intended to fill the gap which has developed by providing enough theoretical and computation al material to allow the advanced undergraduate or beginning graduate student to overcome this deficiency and be able to work independentlyor in advanced courses. The book is intended to be used either as a self-study guide, a textbook for a course in adv anced linear algebra, or as a reference book. It is also designed to prepare a student for the linear algebra portionof prelim exams or PhD qualifying exams. The volume is self-contained to the extent that it does not assume any previous formal knowledge of linear algebra, though the reader is assumed to have been exposed, at least informally, tosome of the basic ideas and techniques, such as manipulation of small matrices and the solution of small systems of linear equations over the real numbers. More i mportantly, it assumes a seriousness of purpose, considerable motivation,and a modicum of mathematical sophistication on the part of the reader. In the latest edition, new major theorems have been added |
