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:The Stones and the Stars [electronic resource] Building Scotland's Newest Megalith
Author(s): Duncan Lunan
Date:2013
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:There are at least 48 identified prehistoric stone circles in Scotland. In truth, very little is known about the people who erected them, and ultimately about what the stone circles were for. Most stone circles areastronomically aligned, which has le d to the modern debate over the significance of the alignments. The megaliths certainly represented an enormous cooperative effort, would at the very least have demonstrated power and wealth, andbeing set away from any dwellings probably served a ceremoni al, or perhaps religious, purpose. Observations at the site of the stone circles, of solar, lunar, and stellar events, have already cast light on some of the questions aboutthe construction and use of ancient megalithic observatories. In his capacity as m anager of the Glasgow Parks Department Astronomy Project, author Duncan Lunan designed and built in the late 1970s Sighthill, the first astronomicallyaligned stone circle in Britain in over 3,000 years. The Stones and the Stars examines the case for astro nomical alignments of stone circles and charts the development of a fascinating project with a strong scientific and historicalflavor. The work was documented in detail by artist and photographer Gavin Roberts, and the book contains a large selection of i llustrations that bring the project vividly to life

Note:Aerogels are the lightest solids known. Up to 1000 times lighter than glass and with a density as low as only four times that of air, they show very high thermal, electrical and acoustic insulation values and hold many entries inGuinness World Record s. Originally based on silica, R&D efforts have extended this class of materials to non-silicate inorganic oxides, natural and synthetic organic polymers, carbon, metal and ceramic materials, etc. Composite systemsinvolving polymer-crosslinked aerogels an d interpenetrating hybrid networks have been developed and exhibit remarkable mechanical strength and flexibility. Even more exotic aerogels based on clays, chalcogenides, phosphides, quantumdots, and biopolymers such as chitosan are opening new applicati ons for the construction, transportation, energy, defense and healthcare industries. Applications in electronics, chemistry, mechanics, engineering, energy production andstorage, sensors, medicine, nanotechnology, military and aerospace, oil and gas recov ery, thermal insulation and household uses are being developed with an estimated annual market growth rate of around 70% until 2015. The AerogelsHandbook summarizes state-of-the-art developments and processing of inorganic, organic, and composite aerogels , including the most important methods of synthesis, characterization as well as their typical applications and theirpossible market impact. Readers will find an exhaustive overview of all aerogel materials known today, their fabrication, upscaling aspect s, physical and chemical properties, and most recent advances towards applications and commercialproducts, some of which are commercially available today.

Title:On the Construction of Artificial Brains [electronic resource]
Author(s): Ulrich Ramacher
Christoph Malsburg
Date:2010
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book presents a first generation of artificial brains, using vision as sample application. An object recognition system is built, using neurons and synapses as exclusive building elements. The system contains a featurepyramid with 8 orientations and 5 resolution levels for 1000 objects and networks for binding of features into objects. This vision system can recognize objects robustly in the presence of changes in illumination, deformation, distanceand pose (as long as object components remain v isible). The neuro-synaptic network owes its functional power to the introduction of rapidly modifiable dynamic synapses. These give a network greater pattern recognition capabilities thanare achievable with fixed connections. The spatio-temporal correlat ion structure of patterns is captured by a single synaptic differential equation in a universal way. The correlation can appear as synchronous neural firing, whichsignals the presence of a feature in a robust way, or binds features into objects. Although in this book we can present only a first generation artificial brain and believe many more generations will have to follow to reach the fullpower of the human brain, we nevertheless see a new era of computation on the horizon. There were times when comput ers, with their precision, reliability and blinding speed, were considered to be as superior to the wet matter of ourbrain as a jet plane is to a sparrow. These times seem to be over, given the fact that digital systems inspired by formal logic and contro lled algorithmically - today's computers - are hitting a complexity crisis. A paradigm change isin the air: from the externally organised to the self-organised computer, of which the results described in this book may give an inkling

Title:LEP - The Lord of the Collider Rings at CERN 1980-2000 [electronic resource] : The Making, Operation and Legacy of the World's Largest Scientific Instrument
Author(s): Herwig Schopper
Date:2009
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Housed by a 4 m diameter tunnel of 27 km circumference, with huge underground labs and numerous surface facilities, and set up with a precision of 0.1 mm per kilometer, the Large Electron-Positron Collider (LEP) was not only thelargest but also one o f the most sophisticated scientific research instrument ever created by Man. Located at CERN, near Geneva, LEP was built during the years 1983 - 1989, was operational until 2000, and corroborated the standardmodel of particle physics through continous hig h precision measurements. The Author, director-general of CERN during the crucial period of the construction of LEP, recounts vividly the convoluted decision-making and technicalimplementation processes - the tunnel alone being a highly challenging geo- a nd civil engineering project - and the subsequent extremely fruitful period of scientific research. Finally he describes the difficult decision to close downLEP, at a time when the discovery of the Higgs boson seemed within reach. LEP was eventually disma ntled in 2000, enabling the tunnel to be reused for building the next generation machine, the much more powerful Large Hadron Collider(LHC), an upgrade then called LEP3 and foreseen from the beginning. It became operational just as this account was being completed. Written by the main protagonist responsible for making LEP a reality, this is the definitive insidestory of a remarkable machine and the many thousands of scientists and engineers from around the world, whose efforts contributed to the new know ledge it produced

Title:Mysteries and Discoveries of Archaeoastronomy [electronic resource] : From Giza to Easter Island

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This complete, authoritative study of the growing discipline of archaeoastronomy examines the role of astronomy in antiquity. Professor Guilio Magli provides a clear, up-to-date survey of current thinking on the motives of theancients for building fa bulous and mysterious monuments all over our planet. Was it an attempt to reproduce the sky on Earth? To bring down the power of the stars to where they could see it, worship it, and use it? The connectingthread is astronomy. Magli uses astronomy as a key to understanding our ancestors way of thinking. It is a challenge he likes to call predicting the past. The motives of the ancients have often been misconstrued, maligned, oreven dismissed. Magli shows the limitations of orthodox archaeology in relation to astronomically based artifacts and tries to understand what led the ancients to construct such magnificent structures as the city of Teotihuacan in theMexico Valley, the Ceremonial Center of Chaco Canyon in the United States, the Avebury stone circle i n Great Britain, and the great pyramids in Egypt. In this book, the reader is taken on a world tour of many wonderful andenigmatic places on almost every continent, in search of traces of astronomical knowledge and lore of the sky. Then, the author discus ses the fundamental ideas that he believes led to the construction of the giant monuments. Finally,Magli revisits one place in greater detail Giza in an attempt to provide proof for his ideas on the mindset of ancient cultures. This fascinating book wil l take you places in time you have never been, and stimulate yourimagination in regards to other people and other cultures. The result will be a better understanding of who we are and where we come from

Note:This volume presents the construction of canonical modular compactifications of moduli spaces for polarized Abelian varieties (possibly with level structure), building on the earlier work of Alexeev, Nakamura, and Namikawa. Thisprovides a different a pproach to compactifying these spaces than the more classical approach using toroical embeddings, which are not canonical. There are two main new contributions in this monograph: (1) The introduction oflogarithmic geometry as understood by Fontaine, Illus ie, and Kato to the study of degenerating Abelian varieties and (2) the construction of canonical compactifications for moduli spaces with higher degree polarizations based onstack-theoretic techniques and a study of the theta group

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:This book develops the basic mathematical theory of the finite element method, the most widely used technique for engineering design and analysis. The third edition contains four new sections: the BDDC domain decompositionpreconditioner, convergence analysis of an adaptive algorithm, interior penalty methods and Poincara\'e-Friedrichs inequalities for piecewise W^1_p functions. New exercises have also been added throughout. The initial chapter providesan introducton to the entire subject, developed i n the one-dimensional case. Four subsequent chapters develop the basic theory in the multidimensional case, and a fifth chapter presents basic applications of this theory. Subsequentchapters provide an introduction to: - multigrid methods and domain decom position methods - mixed methods with applications to elasticity and fluid mechanics - iterated penalty and augmented Lagrangian methods - variational crimesincluding nonconforming and isoparametric methods, numerical integration and interior penalty meth ods - error estimates in the maximum norm with applications to nonlinear problems - error estimators, adaptive meshes and convergenceanalysis of an adaptive algorithm - Banach-space operator-interpolation techniques The book has proved useful to mathemati cians as well as engineers and physical scientists. It can be used for a course that provides an introduction tobasic functional analysis, approximation theory and numerical analysis, while building upon and applying basic techniques of real variable theo ry. It can also be used for courses that emphasize physical applications or algorithmicefficiency. Reviews of earlier editions: This book represents an important contribution to the mathematical literature of finite elements. It is both a well-done text a nd a good reference.

Whether you might want to undertake building anover-the-top dome observatory yourself or not, you are sure to enjoy this informative tale by Gordon Rogers, told with humor and humility, of his torturous but ultimately rewarding experience with building for himself, attached to hisown home, a fancy and sophisticated dome observatory, just for the pleasure of sky watching on beautiful nights (of which there are far too few in England!). Read about all the thinking and planning that went into this venture, and theoptions considered and rejected. Read about the choices and mistakes made along the way. Finally, read and discover the joys of sky watching using state-of-the-art equipment, and share in the authors frustrations and triumphs as hecompleted this project of a lifetime

Title:Setting-up a Small Observatory: From Concept to Construction [electronic resource]
Author(s): David Arditti
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:Every amateur astronomer who is considering a purpose-built observatory will find this book absolutely invaluable during both the planning and the construction stages. Drawing on David Ardittis practical experience and that ofmany other amateur astro nomers, it gives invaluable help in making all the important decisions. To begin with, Setting up a Small Observatory addresses what you really need from an observatory, whether to build or buy, what designs youshould consider, and where you should site i t. Uniquely, it also considers the aesthetics of an amateur observatory: how to make it fit in with your home, garden, and yard, even disguising it as a more common garden building ifnecessary. Theres also a wealth of practical details for constructing an d equipping your small observatory everything from satisfying local planning laws and building codes through to making sure that your completed observatoryis well-equipped, convenient, and comfortable to use. Whether you are considering a simple low-tech DIY approach to a fixed observatory, or aspiring to a sophisticated domed building, there is something here for you

Title:Uncertainty Forecasting in Engineering [electronic resource]
Author(s): Bernd Mller
Uwe Reuter
Date:2007
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book deals with uncertainty forecasting based on a fuzzy time series approach, including fuzzy random processes and artificial neural networks. A consideration of data and measurement uncertainty enhances forecasting in awide range of applicatio ns, particularly in the fields of engineering, environmental science and civil engineering. Uncertain data are described by means of a new incremental fuzzy representation which permits a complete and accurateestimation of uncertainty. The book is aimed a t engineers as well as professionals working in related fields. Descriptive, modeling and forecasting methods pertaining to fuzzy time series are introduced and explained in detail.Emphasis is placed on forecasting with the aid of fuzzy random processes, such as fuzzy ARMA processes and fuzzy white-noise processes, as well as forecasting based on artificial neural networks. All numerical algorithms arecomprehensively described and demonstrated by way of practical examples
