Title:Dressed Photons [electronic resource] : Concepts of LightMatter Fusion Technology
Author(s): Motoichi Ohtsu
Date:2014
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Authored by the developer of dressed photon science and technology as well as nanophotonics, this book outlines concepts of the subject using a novel theoretical framework that differs from conventional wave optics. It provides aquantum theoretical d escription of optical near fields and related problems that puts matter excitation such as electronic and vibrational ones on an equal footing with photons. By this description, optical near fields are interpretedas quasi-particles and named dressed photo ns which carry the material excitation energy in a nanometric space. The author then explores novel nanophotonic devices, fabrications, and energy conversion based on the theoretical picture ofdressed photons. Further, this book looks at how the assembly of nanophotonic devices produces information and communication systems. Dressed photon science and technology is on its way to revolutionizing various applications indevices, fabrications, and systems. Promoting further exploration in the field, this book presents physically intuitive concepts, theories, and technical details for students, engineers, and scientists engaged in research anddevelopment in dressed photon science and technology as well as nanophotonics

Title:Extraterrestrial Altruism [electronic resource] : Evolution and Ethics in the Cosmos
Author(s): Douglas A Vakoch
Date:2014
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Extraterrestrial Altruism examines a basic assumption of the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI): that extraterrestrials will be transmitting messages to us for our benefit. This question of whether extraterrestrialswill be altruistic has become increasingly important in recent years as SETI scientists have begun contemplating transmissions from Earth to make contact. Should we expect altruism to evolve throughout the cosmos, or is this onlywishful thinking? Would this make biological sen se? Is it dangerous to send messages to other worlds, as Stephen Hawking has suggested? Would extraterrestrial societies be based on different ethical principles? ExtraterrestrialAltruism explores these and related questions about the motivations of civil izations beyond Earth, providing new insights that are critical for SETI. Chapters are authored by leading scholars from diverse disciplinesanthropology,astronomy, biology, chemistry, computer science, cosmology, engineering, history of science, law, phil osophy, psychology, public policy, and sociology. The book is carefully edited by Douglas Vakoch, Director of Interstellar MessageComposition at the SETI Institute and professor of clinical psychology at the California Institute of Integral Studies. The F oreword is by Frank Drake. This interdisciplinary book will benefit everybody trying to understand whetherevolution and ethics are unique to Earth, or whether they are built into the fabric of the universe

Title:Quantum Objects [electronic resource] : Non-Local Correlation, Causality and Objective Indefiniteness in the Quantum World
Author(s): Gregg Jaeger
Date:2014
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This monograph identifiesthe essential characteristics of the objects described by current quantum theoryand considers their relationship to space-time.In the process, it explicates the senses in which quantum objects may beconsistently considered to have parts of which they may be composed or into which they may be decomposed. The book also demonstrates the degree to which reduction is possible in quantum mechanics, showing it to be related to theobjective indefiniteness of quantum properties and th e strong non-local correlations that can occur betweenthephysical quantities of quantum subsystems. Careful attention is paid to the relationships among such propertycorrelations, physical causation, probability, and symmetry in quantum theory. In this wa y, the text identifies and clarifies the conceptual grounds underlying the unique nature of many quantum phenomena

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

Title:International Conference on Theory and Application in Nonlinear Dynamics (ICAND 2012) [electronic resource]
Author(s): Visarath In
Antonio Palacios
Patrick Longhini
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:A collection of different lectures presented by experts in the field of nonlinear science provides the reader with contemporary, cutting-edge, research works that bridge the gap between theory and device realizations of nonlinearphenomena. Represent ative examples of topics covered include: chaos gates, social networks, communication, sensors, lasers, molecular motors, biomedical anomalies, stochastic resonance, nano-oscillators for generating microwavesignals and related complex systems. A common th eme among these and many other related lectures is to model, study, understand, and exploit the rich behavior exhibited by nonlinear systems to design and fabricate novel technologieswith superior characteristics. Consider, for instance, the fact that a s harks sensitivity to electric fields is 400 times more powerful than the most sophisticated electric-field sensor. In spite of significant advances in materialproperties, in many cases it remains a daunting task to duplicate the superior signal processing capabilities of most animals. Since nonlinear systems tend to be highly sensitive to perturbations when they occur near the onset of abifurcation, there are also lectures on the general topic of bifurcation theory and on how to exploit such bifurcations for signal enhancements purposes. This manuscript will appeal to researchers interested in both theory andimplementations of nonlinear systems.

Title:Advanced Materials for Integrated Optical Waveguides [electronic resource]
Author(s): Xingcun Colin Tong Ph.D
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book provides a comprehensive introduction to integrated optical waveguides for information technology and data communications. Integrated coverage ranges from advanced materials, fabrication, and characterization techniquesto guidelines for des ign and simulation. A concluding chapter offers perspectives on likely future trends and challenges. The dramatic scaling down of feature sizes has driven exponential improvements in semiconductor productivity andperformance in the past several decades. H owever, with the potential of gigascale integration, size reduction is approaching a physical limitation due to the negative impact on resistance and inductance of metal interconnects withcurrent copper-trace based technology. Integrated optics provides a potentially lower-cost, higher performance alternative to electronics in optical communication systems. Optical interconnects, in which light can be generated, guided,modulated, amplified, and detected, can provide greater bandwidth, lower power consumpt ion, decreased interconnect delays, resistance to electromagnetic interference, and reduced crosstalk when integrated into standard electroniccircuits. Integrated waveguide optics represents a truly multidisciplinary field of science and engineering, with continued growth requiring new developments in modeling, further advances in materials science, and innovations inintegration platforms. In addition, the processing and fabrication of these new devices must be optimized in conjunction with the developmen t of accurate and precise characterization and testing methods. Students and professionals inmaterials science and engineering will find Advanced Materials for Integrated Optical Waveguides to be an invaluable reference for meeting these research and deve lopment goals. Suitable as an in-depth introduction for students andtraining groups Serves as a comprehensive, one-stop reference for researchers and other materials science and engineering professional

Title:A Mathematical Odyssey [electronic resource] : Journey from the Real to the Complex
Author(s): Steven G Krantz
Harold R Parks
Date:2014
Publisher:Boston, MA : Springer US : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Mathematics is a poem. It is a lucid, sensual, precise exposition of beautiful ideas directed to specific goals. It is worthwhile to have as broad a cross-section of mankind as possible be conversant with what goes on inmathematics. Just as everyone knows that the Internet is a powerful and important tool for communication, so everyone should know that the Poincar conjecture gives us important information about the shape of our universe. Just asevery responsible citizen realizes that the mass-product ion automobile was pioneered by Henry Ford, just so everyone should know that the P/NP problem has implications for security and data manipulation that will affect everyone. Thisbook endeavors to tell the story of the modern impact of mathematics, of its trials and triumphs and insights, in language that can be appreciated by a broad audience. It endeavors to show what mathematics means for our lives, how itimpacts all of us, and what new thoughts it should cause us to entertain. It introduces new vistas of mathematical ideas and shares the excitement of new ideas freshly minted. It discusses the significance and impact of these ideas,and gives them meaning that will travel well and cause people to reconsider their place in the universe. Mathematics is on e of mankind's oldest disciplines. Along with philosophy, it has shaped the very modus of human thought. And itcontinues to do so. To be unaware of modern mathematics is to be miss out on a large slice of life. It is to be left out of essential modern dev elopments. We want to address this point, and do something about it. This is a book to makemathematics exciting for people of all interests and all walks of life. Mathematics is exhilarating, it is ennobling, it is uplifting, and it is fascinating. We wan t to show people this part of our world, and to get them to travel newpaths

Title:What Mathematics Can Do for You [electronic resource] : Essays and Tips from Japanese Industry Leaders
Author(s): Yoshikazu Giga
Toshiyuki Kobayashi
Date:2013
Publisher:Tokyo : Springer Japan : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Japan is a tiny country that occupies only 0.25% of the worlds total land area. However, this small country is the worlds third largest in economy: the Japanese GDP is roughly equivalent to the sum of any two majorcountries in Europe as of 2012. This book is a first attempt to ask leaders of top Japanese companies, such as Toyota, about their thoughts on mathematics. The topics range from mathematical problems in specific areas (e.g.,exploration of natural resources, communication networks, finance) to mathematical strategy that helps a leader who has to weigh many different issues and make decisions in a timely manner, and even to mathematical literacy thatensures quality control. The reader may notice that every article reflects the authors way of life and thinking, which can be evident in even one sentence. This book is an enlarged English edition of the Japanese book WhatMathematics Can Do for You: Essays and Tips from Japanese Industry Leaders. In this edition we have invited the contributions o f three mathematicians who have been working to expand and strengthen the interaction between mathematicsand industry. The role of mathematics is usually invisible when it is applied effectively and smoothly in science and technology, and mathematical str ategy is often hidden when it is used properly and successfully. The business leadersin successful top Japanese companies are well aware of this invisible feature of mathematics in applications aside from the intrinsic depth of mathematics. What Mathemati cs Can Do for You ultimately provides the reader an opportunityto notice what is hidden but key to business strategy

Note:As the interconnectivity between humans through technical devices is becoming ubiquitous, the next step is already in the making: ambient intelligence, i.e. smart (technical) environments, which will eventually play the sameactive role in communicati on as the human players, leading to a co-evolution in all domains where real-time communication is essential. This topical volume, based on the findings of the Socionical European research project, gives equalattention to two highly relevant domains of ap plications: transport, specifically traffic, dynamics from the viewpoint of a socio-technical interaction and evacuation scenarios for large-scale emergency situations. Care was taken toinvestigate as much as possible the limits of scalability and to comb ine the modeling using complex systems science approaches with relevant data analysis

Note:In everyday communication, Europes citizens, business partners and politicians are inevitably confronted with language barriers. Language technology has the potential to overcome these barriers and to provide innovativeinterfaces to technologies and knowledge. This document presents a Strategic Research Agenda for Multilingual Europe 2020. The agenda was prepared by META-NET, a European Network of Excellence. META-NET consists of 60 research centresin 34 countries, who cooperate with stakeholders fro m economy, government agencies, research organisations, non-governmental organisations, language communities and European universities. META-NETs vision is high-quality languagetechnology for all European languages. The research carried out in the area of language technology is of utmost importance for the consolidation of Portuguese as a language of global communication in the information society. Dr. Pedro Passos Coelho (Prime-Minister of Portugal) It is imperative that language technologies for Slovene are developed systematically if we want Slovene to flourish also in the future digital world. Dr. Danilo Trk(President of the Republic of Slovenia) For such small languages like Latvian keeping up with the ever increasing pace of time and technological development is crucial. The only way to ensure future existence of our language is toprovide its users with equal opportunities as the users of larger languages enjoy. Therefore being on the forefront of modern technologies is our opportunity. Valdis Dom brovskis (Prime Minister of Latvia) Europes inherentmultilingualism and our scientific expertise are the perfect prerequisites for significantly advancing the challenge that language technology poses. META-NET opens up new opportunities for the developmen t of ubiquitous multilingualtechnologies. Prof. Dr. Annette Schavan (German Minister of Education and Research)

Title:The Nave Bayes Model for Unsupervised Word Sense Disambiguation [electronic resource] Aspects Concerning Feature Selection

Note:This book presents recent advances (from 2008 to 2012) concerning use of the Nave Bayes model in unsupervised word sense disambiguation (WSD). While WSD, in general, has a number of important applications in various fields ofartificial intelligence ( information retrieval, text processing, machine translation, message understanding, man-machine communication etc.), unsupervised WSD is considered important because it is language-independent and does notrequire previously annotated corpora. The Nave Bay es model has been widely used in supervised WSD, but its use in unsupervised WSD has led to more modest disambiguation results and has been less frequent. It seems that the potentialof this statistical model with respect to unsupervised WSD continues to r emain insufficiently explored. The present book contends that the Nave Bayes model needs to be fed knowledge in order to perform well as a clustering techniquefor unsupervised WSD and examines three entirely different sources of such knowledge for feature selection: WordNet, dependency relations and web N-grams. WSD with an underlying Nave Bayes model is ultimately positioned on the borderbetween unsupervised and knowledge-based techniques. The benefits of feeding knowledge (of various natures) to a knowl edge-lean algorithm for unsupervised WSD that uses the Nave Bayes model as clustering technique are clearlyhighlighted. The discussion shows that the Nave Bayes model still holds promise for the open problem of unsupervised WSD

Title:Complexity Perspectives on Language, Communication and Society [electronic resource]

Size:1 online resource

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The language-communication-society triangle defies traditional scientific approaches. Rather, it is a phenomenon that calls for an integration of complex, transdisciplinary perspectives, if we are to make any progress inunderstanding how it works. Th e highly diverse agents in play are not merely cognitive and/or cultural, but also emotional and behavioural in their specificity. Indeed, the effort may require building a theoretical and methodologicalbody of knowledge that can effectively convey the ch aracteristic properties of phenomena in human terms. New complexity approaches allow us to rethink our limited and mechanistic images of human societies and create more appropriateemo-cognitive dynamic and holistic models. We have to enter into dialogue w ith the complexity views coming out of other more material sciences, but we also need to take steps in the linguistic and psycho-sociological fieldstowards creating perspectives and concepts better fitted to human characteristics. Our understanding of com plexity is different but not opposed to the one that is more commonly found in texts written by people working inphysics or computer science, for example. The goal of this book is to extend the knowledge of these other more human or socially oriented pe rspectives on complexity, taking account of the language and communication singularitiesof human agents in society.

Title:Handbook of Nano-Optics and Nanophotonics [electronic resource]

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:In the 1990s, optical technology and photonics industry developed fast, but further progress became difficult due to a fundamental limit of light known as the diffraction limit. This limit could be overcome using the noveltechnology of nano-optics or nanophotonics in which the size of the electromagnetic field is decreased down to the nanoscale and is used as a carrier for signal transmission, processing, and fabrication. Such a decrease beyond thediffraction limit is possible by using optical near-f ields. The true nature of nano-optics and nanophotonics involves not only their abilities to meet the above requirements but also their abilities to realize qualitative innovationsin photonic devices, fabrication techniques, energy conversion and informat ion processing systems. The objective of this work is to review the innovations of optical science and technology by nano-optics and nanophotonics. While inconventional optical science and technology, light and matter are discussed separately, in nano-opt ics and nanophotonics, light and matter have to be regarded as being coupled to each other, and the energy flow between nanoparticles isbidirectional. This means that nano-optics and nanophotonics have to be regarded as a technology fusing optical fields and matter. This unique work reviews and covers the most recent topics of nano-optics, applications to deviceoperations, fabrication techniques, energy conversion, information processing, architectures and algorithms. Each chapter is written by the leadin g scientists in the relevant field. Thus, this work will provide high-quality scientificand technical information to scientists, engineers, and graduate students who are and will be engaged in R&D of nano-optics and nanophotonics. Especially, the topics t o be covered by this work will be popularly used by the engineers inthe rapidly growing market of the optical energy conversion

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:As well as highlighting potentially useful applications for network analysis, this volume identifies new targets for mathematical research that promise to provide insights into network systems theory as well as facilitating thecross-fertilization of ideas between sectors. Focusing on financial, security and social aspects of networking, the volume adds to the growing body of evidence showing that network analysis has applications to transportation,communication, health, finance, and social policy mor e broadly. It provides powerful models for understanding the behavior of complex systems that, in turn, will impact numerous cutting-edge sectors in science and engineering, such aswireless communication, network security, distributed computing and social networking, financial analysis, and cyber warfare. The volume offers an insider' s view of cutting-edge research in network systems, including methodologieswith immense potential for interdisciplinary application. The contributors have all presented mate rial at a series of workshops organized on behalf of Canadas MITACS initiative, which funds projects and study grants inmathematics for information technology and complex systems. These proceedings include papers from workshops on financial networks, netw ork security and cryptography, and social networks. MITACS has shown that the partlyghettoized nature of network systems research has led to duplicated work in discrete fields, and thus this initiative has the potential to save time and accelerate the pac e of research in a number of areas of network systemsresearch

Note:The connected dominating set (CDS)has been a classic subject studied in graph theory since 1975. It has been discovered inrecent years thatCDS has important applications in communication networks especially in wirelessnetworks as a virtual backbone. Motivated from those applications, many papers have been published in the literature during last 15 years. Now, the connected dominating set has become a hot research topic in computer science. Thiswork isa valuable reference for researchers in computer s cience and operations research, especially in areas of theoretical computer science, computer communication networks, combinatorial optimization, industrial engineering, anddiscrete mathematics. The book may also be used as a text in a graduate seminar fo r PhD students. Readers should have a basic knowledge of computational complexity and combinatorial optimization. In this book, the authors present thestate-of-the-art in the study of connected dominating sets. Each chapter is devoted to one problem, and consists of three parts: motivation and overview, problem complexity analysis, and approximation algorithm designs. The text isdesigned togive the reader a clear understanding of thebackground, formulation, existing important research results, and open pr oblems. Topics include minimum CDS, routing-cost constrained CDS, weighted CDS, directed CDS, SCDS(strongly connected dominating set), WCDS (weakly connected dominating set), CDS-partition, virtual backbone in wireless networks, convertor placement in opt ical networks, coverage in wireless sensor networks, and more

Title:The Craft of Scientific Presentations [electronic resource] Critical Steps to Succeed and Critical Errors to Avoid
Author(s): Michael Alley
Date:2013
Edition:2nd ed. 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:The Craft of Scientific Presentations, 2nd edition aims to strengthen you as a presenter of science and engineering. The book does so by identifying what makes excellent presenters such as Brian Cox, Jane Goodall, Richard Feynman,and Jill Bolte Taylo r so strong. In addition, the book explains what causes so many scientific presentations to flounder. One of the most valuable contributions of this text is that it teaches the assertion-evidence approach toscientific presentations. Instead of building pr esentations, as most engineers and scientists do, on the weak foundation of topic phrases and bulleted lists, this assertion-evidence approach calls for building presentations on succinctmessage assertions supported by visual evidence. Unlike the commonly followed topic-subtopic approach that PowerPoint leads presenters to use, the assertion-evidence approach is solidly grounded in research. By showing the differencesbetween strong and weak presentations, by identifying the errors that scientific presente rs typically make, and by teaching a much more powerful approach for scientific presentations than what is commonly practiced, this book placesyou in a position to elevate your presentations to a high level. In essence, this book aims to have you not just succeed in your scientific presentations, but excel. About the Author Michael Alley has taught workshops on presentationsto engineers and scientists on five continents, and has recently been invited to speak at the European Space Organization, Harvard Me dical School, MIT, Sandia National Labs, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Simula Research Laboratory,and United Technologies. An Associate Professor of engineering communication at Pennsylvania State University, Alley is a leading researcher on the effectiv eness of different designs for presentation slides

Note:Recent technological breakthrough in the field of Terahertz radiation has triggered new applications in biology and biomedicine. Particularly, biological applications are based on the specific spectroscopic fingerprints ofbiological matter in this sp ectral region. Historically with the discovery of new electromagnetic wave spectrum, we have always discovered new medical diagnostic imaging systems. The use of terahertz wave was not realized due to theabsence of useful terahertz sources. Now after succ essful generation of THz waves, it is reported that a great potential for THz wave exists for its resonance with bio-molecules. There are many challenging issues such as development ofTHz passive and active instrumentations, understanding of THz-Bio inter action for THz spectroscopy, THz-Bio nonlinear phenomena and safety guideline, and THz imaging systems. Eventually the deeper understanding of THz-Bio interactionand novel THz systems enable us to develop powerful THz biomedical imaging systems which can contribute to biomedical industry. This is a truly interdisciplinary field and convergence technology where the communication betweendifferent disciplines is the most challenging issue for the success of the great works. One of the first steps to promote the communications in this convergence technology would be teaching the basics of these different fields to theresearchers in a plain language with the help of Convergence of Terahertz Science in Biomedical Systems which is considered to be 3-4th year col lege students or beginning level of graduate students. Therefore, this type of book can beused by many people who want to enter or understand this field. Even more it can be used for teaching in universities or research institutions

Note:Born after World War II, large-scale experimental high-energy physics (HEP) has found itself limited ever since by available accelerator, detector and computing technologies. Accordingly, HEP has made significant contributions tothe development of th ese fields, more often than not driving their innovations. The invention of the World Wide Web at CERN is merely the best-known example out of many. This book is the first comprehensive account to trace the historyof this pioneering spirit in the field of computing technologies. It covers everything up to and including the present-day handling of the huge demands imposed upon grid and distributed computing by full-scale LHC operations -operations which have for years involved many thousands of collaborati ng members worldwide and accordingly provide the original and natural testbed for grid computing concepts. This book takes the reader on a guided tour encompassingall relevant topics, including programming languages, software engineering, large databases, the Web, and grid- and cloud computing. The important issue of intellectual property regulations for distributed software engineering andcomputing is also addressed. Aptly, the book closes with a visionary chapter of what may lie ahead. Approachable and requiring only basic understanding of physics and computer sciences, this book is intended for both education andresearch

Note:Complex Networks is a newly emerging field with applications in a variety of domains, such as communication networks, engineering networks, social networks, and biological networks. There has been an explosive growth of researchon complex real-world networks, a theme that is becoming pervasive in many disciplines ranging from mathematics and computer science to the social and biological sciences. Optimization of complex networks with real-world applicationsrequires a deep understanding of the interpl ay between the dynamics of the physical network and the information dynamics within the network. The Handbook of Optimization in Complex Networks: Theory and Applications provides the basictheory of these networks with several new mathematical approaches and optimization techniques to design and analyze dynamic complex networks. The volume features a wide range of applications and optimization problems derived fromresearch areas such as computer science, operations research, cellular and molecular chemis try, brain physiology, epidemiology, and ecology. This volume, as well as its companion (The Handbook of Optimization in Complex Networks:Communication and Social Networks ISBN: 978-1-4614-0856-7) is an excellent resource for graduate students, researcher s, and practitioners who wish to learn about the most up to date theory and applications on optimization of complexreal-world networks.

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Number theory is a branch of mathematics which draws its vitality from a rich historical background. It is also traditionally nourished through interactions with other areas of research, such as algebra, algebraic geometry,topology, complex analysis and harmonic analysis. More recently, it has made a spectacular appearance in the field of theoretical computer science and in questions of communication, cryptography and error-correcting codes. Providing anelementary introduction to the central topics i n number theory, this book spans multiple areas of research. The first part corresponds to an advanced undergraduate course. All of the statements given in this part are of courseaccompanied by their proofs, with perhaps the exception of some results appe aring at the end of the chapters. A copious list of exercises, of varying difficulty, are also included here. The second part is of a higher level and isrelevant for the first year of graduate school. It contains an introduction to elliptic curves and a c hapter entitled Developments and Open Problems, which introduces and brings together various themes oriented toward ongoingmathematical research. Given the multifaceted nature of number theory, the primary aims of this book are to: - provide an overview o f the various forms of mathematics useful for studying numbers - demonstrate the necessity of deep andclassical themes such as Gauss sums - highlight the role that arithmetic plays in modern applied mathematics - include recent proofs such as the polynomi al primality algorithm - approach subjects of contemporary research such aselliptic curves - illustrate the beauty of arithmetic The prerequisites for this text are undergraduate level algebra and a little topology of Rn. It will be of use to undergraduat es, graduates and phd students, and may also appeal toprofessional mathematicians as a reference text

Title:Atlas of Astronomical Discoveries [electronic resource]
Author(s): Govert Schilling

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:Four hundred years ago in Middelburg, in the Netherlands, the telescope was invented. The invention unleashed a revolution in the exploration of the universe. Galileo Galilei discovered mountains on the Moon, spots on the Sun,and moons around Jupiter . Christiaan Huygens saw details on Mars and rings around Saturn. William Herschel discovered a new planet and mapped binary stars and nebulae. Other astronomers determined the distances to stars, unraveled thestructure of the Milky Way, and discovered th e expansion of the universe. And, as telescopes became bigger and more powerful, astronomers delved deeper into the mysteries of the cosmos. In his Atlas of Astronomical Discoveries,astronomy journalist Govert Schilling tells the story of 400 years of tel escopic astronomy. He looks at the 100 most important discoveries since the invention of the telescope. In his direct and accessible style, the author takes hisreaders on an exciting journey encompassing the highlights of four centuries of astronomy. Spec tacular photographs, taken with the largest telescopes on Earth and in space, portray the most distant corners of the universe. Selectingand describing the hundred most impressive and important astronomical discoveries is no easy task, but no one can mast er this feat as well as Govert Schilling, a veritable master of science communication. With captivating words andbreathtaking images, the Atlas of Astronomical Discoveries is a tour-de-force of humankinds almost unbelievable progress in understanding the cosmos over the past 400 years. Lars Lindberg Christensen, Head of ESOs Education andPublic Outreach Department and author of Cosmic Collisions (Springer 2009) A hyper modern concept, aimed at the multimedia generation.

Title:Structural Analysis of Complex Networks [electronic resource]
Author(s): Matthias Dehmer
Date:2011
Publisher:Boston : Birkhuser Boston
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Because of the increasing complexity and growth of real-world networks, their analysis by using classical graph-theoretic methods is oftentimes a difficult procedure. As a result, there is a strong need to combine graph-theoreticmethods with mathemat ical techniques from other scientific disciplines, such as machine learning and information theory, in order to analyze complex networks more adequately. Filling a gap in literature, this self-contained bookpresents theoretical and application-oriented re sults to structurally explore complex networks. The work focuses not only on classical graph-theoretic methods, but also demonstrates the usefulness of structural graph theory as a toolfor solving interdisciplinary problems. Special emphasis is given to m ethods related to the following areas: * Applications to biology, chemistry, linguistics, and data analysis * Graph colorings * Graph polynomials * Informationmeasures for graphs * Metrical properties of graphs * Partitions and decompositions * Quantitati ve graph measures Structural Analysis of Complex Networks is suitable for a broad, interdisciplinary readership of researchers,practitioners, and graduate students in discrete mathematics, statistics, computer science, machine learning, artificial intelli gence, computational and systems biology, cognitive science, computational linguistics, and mathematicalchemistry. The book may be used as a supplementary textbook in graduate-level seminars on structural graph analysis, complex networks, or network-based machine learning methods

Note:Deeply rooted in fundamental research in Mathematics and Computer Science, Cellular Automata (CA) are recognized as an intuitive modeling paradigm for Complex Systems. Already very basic CA, with extremely simple micro dynamicssuch as the Game of Lif e, show an almost endless display of complex emergent behavior. Conversely, CA can also be designed to produce a desired emergent behavior, using either theoretical methodologies or evolutionary techniques.Meanwhile, beyond the original realm of applicati ons - Physics, Computer Science, and Mathematics CA have also become work horses in very different disciplines such as epidemiology, immunology, sociology, and finance. In thiscontext of fast and impressive progress, spurred further by the enormous attra ction these topics have on students, this book emerges as a welcome overview of the field for its practitioners, as well as a good starting point fordetailed study on the graduate and post-graduate level. The book contains three parts, two major parts on theory and applications, and a smaller part on software. The theory part contains fundamental chapters on how to design and/orapply CA for many different areas. In the applications part a number of representative examples of really using CA in a broad ran ge of disciplines is provided - this part will give the reader a good idea of the real strength of thiskind of modeling as well as the incentive to apply CA in their own field of study

Note:The paradigm of complexity is pervading both science and engineering, leading to the emergence of novel approaches oriented at the development of a systemic view of the phenomena under study the definition of powerful tools formodelling, estimation, and control and the cross-fertilization of different disciplines and approaches. This book is devoted to networked systems which are one of the most promising paradigms of complexity. It is demonstrated thatcomplex, dynamical networks are powerful tools t o model, estimate, and control many interesting phenomena, like agent coordination, synchronization, social and economics events, networks of critical infrastructures, resourcesallocation, information processing, or control over communication networks. Mo reover, it is shown how the recent technological advances in wireless communication and decreasing in cost and size of electronic devices are promoting theappearance of large inexpensive interconnected systems, each with computational, sensing and mobile capabilities

Note:Coding theory and cryptography allow secure and reliable data transmission, which is at the heart of modern communication. Nowadays, it is hard to find an electronic device without some code inside. Grbner bases have emerged asthe main tool in comput ational algebra, permitting numerous applications, both in theoretical contexts and in practical situations. This book is the first book ever giving a comprehensive overview on the application of commutativealgebra to coding theory and cryptography. For e xample, all important properties of algebraic/geometric coding systems (including encoding, construction, decoding, list decoding) are individually analysed, reporting all significantapproaches appeared in the literature. Also, stream ciphers, PK cryptogr aphy, symmetric cryptography and Polly Cracker systems deserve each a separate chapter, where all the relevant literature is reported and compared. While manyshort notes hint at new exciting directions, the reader will find that all chapters fit nicely wi thin a unified notation

Note:Number Theory in Science and Communication is a well-known introduction for non-mathematicians to this fascinating and useful branch of applied mathematics . It stresses intuitive understanding rather than abstract theory andhighlights important conc epts such as continued fractions, the golden ratio, quadratic residues and Chinese remainders, trapdoor functions, pseudoprimes and primitive elements. Their applications to problems in the real world are oneof the main themes of the book. This revised fi fth edition is augmented by recent advances in coding theory, permutations and derangements and a chapter in quantum cryptography. From reviews of earlier editions I continue to find[Schroeders] Number Theory a goldmine of valuable information. It is a m arvellous book, in touch with the most recent applications of number theory and written with great clarity and humor.

Note:How can our societies be stabilized in a crisis? Why can we enjoy and understand Shakespeare? Why are fruitflies uniform? How do omnivorous eating habits aid our survival? What makes the Mona Lisas smile beautiful? How dowomen keep our social structu res intact? Could there possibly be a single answer to all these questions? This book shows that the statement: weak links stabilize complex systems provides the key to understanding each of theseintriguing puzzles, and many others too. The author (recip ient of several distinguished science communication prizes) uses weak (low affinity, low probability) interactions as a thread to introduce a vast variety of networks fromproteins to economics and ecosystems. Many people, from Nobel Laureates to high-scho ol students have helped to make the book understandable to all interested readers. This unique book and the ideas it develops will have a significantimpact on many, seemingly diverse, fields of study.

Note:Information is an important feature of the modern world. Mathematical techniques underlie the devices that we use to handle it, for example, mobile phones, digital cameras, and personal computers. This book is an integratedintroduction to the mathema tics of coding, that is, replacing information expressed in symbols, such as a natural language or a sequence of bits, by another message using (possibly) different symbols. There are three main reasons fordoing this: economy, reliability, and security, a nd each is covered in detail. Only a modest mathematical background is assumed, the mathematical theory being introduced at a level that enables the basic problems to be statedcarefully, but without unnecessary abstraction. Other features include: clear a nd careful exposition of fundamental concepts, including optimal coding, data compression, and public-key cryptography concise but complete proofs ofresults coverage of recent advances of practical interest, for example in encryption standards, authentica tion schemes, and elliptic curve cryptography numerous examples and exercises, and a full solutions manual available tolecturers from www.springer.com This modern introduction to all aspects of coding is suitable for advanced undergraduate or postgraduate courses in mathematics, computer science, electrical engineering, or informatics. It is alsouseful for researchers and practitioners in related areas of science, engineering and economics

Note:Evolution is a critical challenge for many areas of science, technology and development of society. The book reviews general evolutionary facts such as origin of life and evolution of the genome and clues to evolution throughsimple systems. Emerging areas of science such as systems biology and bio-complexity are founded on the idea that phenomena need to be understood in the context of highly interactive processes operating at different levels andon different scales. This is where physics meets compl exity in nature, and where we must begin to learn about complexity if we are to understand it. Similarly, there is an increasingly urgent need to understand and predict theevolutionary behavior of highly interacting man-made systems, in areas such as comm unications and transport, which permeate the modern world. The same applies to the evolution of human networks such as social, political and financialsystems, where technology has tended to vastly increase both the complexity and speed of interaction, whi ch is sometimes effectively instantaneous. The book contains reviews on such diverse areas as evolution experiments withmicroorganisms, the origin and evolution of viruses, evolutionary dynamics of genes and environment in cancer development, aging as an evolution-facilitating program, evolution of vision and evolution of financial markets

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Ultrahigh-speed optical transmission technology is a key technology for increasing the communication capacity. In optical fibre networks, the number of wavelength channels and the bit rate per wavelength channel, i.e. the TDM(Time Division Multiplexi ng) bit rate, determine the transmission capacity. Currently, TDM bit rates of more than 40 Gbit/s require optical signal processing (Optical Time Division Multiplexing, OTDM). OTDM bit rates of up to 1.2Tbit/s have already been reported. The devices deve loped for ultrahigh-speed optical transmission are not limited to communication applications only. They are key devices for high-speed optical signal processing, i.e. monitoring,measurement and control, and will thus give a wide technological basis for in novative science and technology. All these aspects of ultrahigh-speed optical transmission technology are described in detail in this book

Note:Lars Lindberg Christensen is a science communication specialist and works in Munich, Germany, as head of communication for the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope in Europe. Many people know something about communication it isafter all an innate human a bility but a full comprehension of how to do science communication effectively is not acquired easily. This Guide touches upon all aspects of science communication, revealing a tightly interwoven fabricof issues: product types, target groups, written com munication, visual communication, validation processes, practices of efficient workflow, distribution, promotion, advertising and much more. New science communicators will find thisGuide both helpful and inspirational. I am overwhelmed at how thorough and how well thought-through this book is. Even with my regular relationships with popular communication and with public relations officers, I hadnt realizedhow well documented the field could be until I saw it done here. -Jay M. Pasachoff, Williams College, President, IAU Commission on Education and Development, author of The Cosmos: Astronomy in the New Millennium and The CompleteIdiots Guide to the Sun I would have expected a high standard from a public outreach scientist at the European Space Agency, but this soars way above the normal standard of competence. I have certainly learned a great deal fromthis guide. It deserves a wide readership among science communicators. -Simon Mitton, Author of Conflict in the Cosmos: Fred Hoyles Life in Science and Edit or of The Cambridge Encyclopedia of Astronomy Christensen uses clearprinciples and well-chosen examples, along with tables, diagrams, and even a press release visibility scale to convey the art and science of Science Communication in an authoritative and illuminating manner. -Stephen P.

Title:Reliability, Life Testing and the Prediction of Service Lives [electronic resource] : For Engineers and Scientists
Author(s): Sam C Saunders
Date:2007
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 is intended for students and practitioners who have had a calculus-based statistics course and who have an interest in safety considerations such as reliability, strength, and duration-of-load or service life. Manypersons studying statistic al science will be employed professionally where the problems encountered are obscure, what should be analyzed is not clear, the appropriate assumptions are equivocal, and data are scant. Yet tutorial problemsof this nature are virtually never encountered in coursework. In this book there is no disclosure with many of the data sets what type of investigation should be made or what assumptions are to be used. Most reliability practitionerswill be employed where personal interaction between disciplines is a necessity. A section is included on communication skills to facilitate model selection and formulation based on verifiable assumptions, rather than favorableconclusions. However, whether the answer is right can never be ascertained. Past and current appl ications of stochastic modeling to life-length can only be a guide for future adaptations under different conditions, with newmaterials in unknown usages. This book unifies the study of cumulative-damage distributions, namely, Wald and Tweedie (i.e., inve rse-Gaussian and its reciprocal) with fatigue-life. These distributions are most useful when thecoefficient-of-variation is more appropriate than is the variance as a measure of dispersion. It is shown, uniquely, that the same hyperbolic-sine transformati on of each life length variate has a Chi-square one-df distribution. Thisproperty is useful in the sample statistics. These IHRA distributions realistically model life-length, strength or duration of load under linear cumulative damage and can be combined as approximations in non-linear situations.

Note:Every time that we take money out of an ATM, surf the internet or simply turn on a light switch, we enjoy the benefits of complex engineered systems. Systems like power grids and global communication networks are so ubiquitous inour daily lives that we usually take them for granted, only noticing them when they break down. But how do such amazing technologies and infrastructures come to be what they are? How are these systems designed? How do distributednetworks work? How are they made to respond rap idly in 'real time'? And as the demands that we place on these systems become increasingly complex, are traditional systems-engineering practices still relevant? This volume examines thedifficulties that arise in creating highly complex engineered systems and new approaches that are being adopted. Topics addressed range from the formal representation and classification of distributed networked systems to revolutionaryengineering practices inspired by biological evolution. By bringing together the latest r esearch in Complex Engineered Systems, this book sheds light on the current state and future course of this emerging field

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Number Theory in Science and Communication is a well-known introduction for non-mathematicians to this fascinating and useful branch of applied mathematics . It stresses intuitive understanding rather than abstract theory andhighlights important conc epts such as continued fractions, the golden ratio, quadratic residues and Chinese remainders, trapdoor functions, pseudoprimes and primitive elements. Their applications to problems in the real world are oneof the main themes of the book. This revised fo urth edition is augmented by recent advances in primes in progressions, twin primes, prime triplets, prime quadruplets and quintruplets, factoring with elliptic curves, quantum factoring,Golomb rulers and baroque integers. From reviews of earlier editions I continue to find [Schroeders] Number Theory a goldmine of valuable information. It is a marvellous book, in touch with the most recent applications ofnumber theory and written with great clarity and humor.

Title:An Introduction to Queueing Theory and Matrix-Analytic Methods [electronic resource]
Author(s): L Breuer
D Baum
Date:2005
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The textbook contains the records of a two-semester course on queueing theory, including an introduction to matrix-analytic methods. The course is directed to last year undergraduate and first year graduate students of appliedprobability and computer science, who have already completed an introduction to probability theory. Its purpose is to present material that is close enough to concrete queueing models and their applications, while providing a soundmathematical foundation for their analysis. A pr ominent part of the book will be devoted to matrix-analytic methods. This is a collection of approaches which extend the applicability of Markov renewal methods to queueing theory byintroducing a finite number of auxiliary states. For the embedded Markov chains this leads to transition matrices in block form resembling the structure of classical models. Matrix-analytic methods have become quite popular in queueingtheory during the last twenty years. The intention to include these in a students' introducti on to queueing theory has been the main motivation for the authors to write the present book. Its aim is a presentation of the most importantmatrix-analytic concepts like phase-type distributions, Markovian arrival processes, the GI/PH/1 and BMAP/G/1 queu es as well as QBDs and discrete time approaches
