Title:Weakly Wandering Sequences in Ergodic Theory [electronic resource]
Author(s): Stanley Eigen
Arshag Hajian
Yuji Ito
Vidhu Prasad
Date:2014
Publisher:Tokyo : Springer Japan : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:The appearance of weakly wandering (ww) sets and sequences for ergodic transformations over half a century ago was an unexpected and surprising event. In time it was shown that ww and related sequences reflected significant anddeep properties of ergo dic transformations that preserve an infinite measure. This monograph studies in a systematic way the role of ww and related sequences in the classification of ergodic transformations preserving an infinitemeasure. Connections of these sequences to additi ve number theory and tilings of the integers are also discussed. The material presented is self-contained and accessible to graduate students. A basic knowledge of measure theory isadequate for the reader

Title:Neural Fields [electronic resource] : Theory and Applications
Author(s): Stephen Coombes
Peter beim Graben
Roland Potthast
James Wright
Date:2014
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:With this book, the editors present the first comprehensive collection in neural field studies, authored by leading scientists in the field - among them are two of the founding-fathers of neural field theory. Up to now, researchresults in the field h ave been disseminated across a number of distinct journals from mathematics, computational neuroscience, biophysics, cognitive science and others. Starting with a tutorial for novices in neural field studies, thebook comprises chapters on emergent pattern s, their phase transitions and evolution, on stochastic approaches, cortical development, cognition, robotics and computation, large-scale numerical simulations, the coupling of neural fieldsto the electroencephalogram and phase transitions in anesthesia. The intended readership are students and scientists in applied mathematics, theoretical physics, theoretical biology, and computational neuroscience. Neural field theoryand its applications have a long-standing tradition in the mathematical and computati onal neurosciences. Beginning almost 50 years ago with seminal work by Griffiths and culminating in the 1970ties with the models of Wilson and Cowan,Nunez and Amari, this important research area experienced a renaissance during the 1990ties by the groups of Ermentrout, Bressloff, Haken, and Wright. Since then, much progress has been made in both, the development of mathematical andnumerical techniques, and in physiological refinement and understanding. In contrast to large-scale neural network models desc ribed by huge connectivity matrices that are computationally expensive in numerical simulations, neural fieldmodels described by connectivity kernels allow for analytical treatment by means of functional analysis methods. Thus, a number of rigorous result s on the existence of bump and wave solutions or on inverse kernel construction problemsare nowadays available. Moreover, neural fields provide an important interface for the coupling of continuous neur

Title:Dynamical Systems Generated by Linear Maps [electronic resource]
Author(s): emal B Dolianin
Anatolij B Antonevich
Date:2014
Edition:2nd ed. 2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:The book deals with dynamical systems, generated by linear mappings of finite dimensional spaces and their applications. These systems have a relatively simple structure from the point of view of the modern dynamical systemstheory. However, for the d ynamical systems of this sort, it is possible to obtain explicit answers to specific questions being useful in applications. The considered problems are natural and look rather simple, but in reality in thecourse of investigation, they confront users with plenty of subtle questions, and their detailed analysis needs a substantial effort. The problems arising are related to linear algebra and dynamical systems theory, and therefore, thebook can be considered as a natural amplification, refinement and supple ment to linear algebra and dynamical systems theory textbooks

Title:Invariant Probabilities of Transition Functions [electronic resource]
Author(s): Radu Zaharopol
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:The structure of the set of all the invariant probabilities and the structure of various types of individual invariant probabilities of a transition function are two topics of significant interest in the theory of transitionfunctions, and are studied in this book. The results obtained are useful in ergodic theory and the theory of dynamical systems, which, in turn, can be applied in various other areas (like number theory). They are illustrated usingtransition functions defined by flows, semiflows, a nd one-parameter convolution semigroups of probability measures. In this book, all results on transition probabilities that have been published by the author between 2004 and 2008 areextended to transition functions. The proofs of the results obtained are new. For transition functions that satisfy very general conditions the book describes an ergodic decomposition that provides relevant information on the structureof the corresponding set of invariant probabilities. Ergodic decomposition means a splitting of the state space, where the invariant ergodic probability measures play a significant role. Other topics covered include: characterizationsof the supports of various types of invariant probability measures and the use of these to obtain criteria for un ique ergodicity, and the proofs of two mean ergodic theorems for a certain type of transition functions. The book will beof interest to mathematicians working in ergodic theory, dynamical systems, or the theory of Markov processes. Biologists, physicists and economists interested in interacting particle systems and rigorous mathematics will also findthis book a valuable resource. Parts of it are suitable for advanced graduate courses. Prerequisites are basic notions and results on functional analysis, gen eral topology, measure theory, the Bochner integral and some of itsapplications

Title:Analytic and Probabilistic Approaches to Dynamics in Negative Curvature [electronic resource]
Author(s): Franoise Dal'Bo
Marc Peign
Andrea Sambusetti
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:The work of E. Hopf and G.A. Hedlund, in the 1930s, on transitivity and ergodicity of the geodesic flow for hyperbolic surfaces, marked the beginning of the investigation of the statistical properties and stochastic behavior ofthe flow. The first cen tral limit theorem for the geodesic flow was proved in the 1960s by Y. Sinai for compact hyperbolic manifolds. Since then, strong relationships have been found between the fields of ergodic theory, analysis, andgeometry. Different approaches and new tools have been developed to study the geodesic flow, including measure theory, thermodynamic formalism, transfer operators, Laplace operators, and Brownian motion. All these different points ofview have led to a deep understanding of more general dynamical sy stems, in particular the so-called Anosov systems, with applications to geometric problems such as counting, equirepartition, mixing, and recurrence properties of theorbits. This book comprises two independent texts that provide a self-contained introduct ion to two different approaches to the investigation of hyperbolic dynamics. The first text, by S. Le Borgne, explains the method of martingalesfor the central limit theorem. This approach can be used in several situations, even for weakly hyperbolic flow s, and the author presents a good number of examples and applications to equirepartition and mixing. The second text, by F.Faure and M. Tsujii, concerns the semiclassical approach, by operator theory: chaotic dynamics is described through the spectrum of the associated transfer operator, with applications to the asymptotic counting of periodic orbits. Thebook will be of interest for a broad audience, from PhD and Post-Doc students to experts working on geometry and dynamics

Title:Twisted Teichmller Curves [electronic resource]
Author(s): Christian Wei
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:These notes introduce a new class of algebraic curves on Hilbert modular surfaces. These curves are called twisted Teichmller curves, because their construction is very reminiscent of Hirzebruch-Zagier cycles. These new objectsare analyzed in detail and their main properties are described. In particular, the volume of twisted Teichmller curves is calculated and their components are partially classified. The study of algebraic curves on Hilbert modularsurfaces has been widely covered in the literature due to their arithmetic importance. Among these, twisted diagonals (Hirzebruch-Zagier cycles) are some of the most important examples

Title:Discrete Dynamical Models [electronic resource]
Author(s): Ernesto Salinelli
Franco Tomarelli
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book provides an introduction to the analysis of discrete dynamical systems. The content is presented by an unitary approach that blends the perspective of mathematical modeling together with the ones of several disciplineas Mathematical Analysi s, Linear Algebra, Numerical Analysis, Systems Theory and Probability. After a preliminary discussion of several models, the main tools for the study of linear and non-linear scalar dynamical systems arepresented, paying particular attention to the stabil ity analysis. Linear difference equations are studied in detail and an elementary introduction of Z and Discrete Fourier Transform is presented. A whole chapter is devoted to thestudy of bifurcations and chaotic dynamics. One-step vector-valued dynamical systems are the subject of three chapters, where the reader can find the applications to positive systems, Markov chains, networks and search engines. Thebook is addressed mainly to students in Mathematics, Engineering, Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Eco nomics. The exposition is self-contained: some appendices present prerequisites, algorithms and suggestions for computer simulations.The analysis of several examples is enriched by the proposition of many related exercises of increasing difficulty in the last chapter the detailed solution is given for most of them

Title:Advanced H Control [electronic resource] : Towards Nonsmooth Theory and Applications
Author(s): Yury V Orlov
Luis T Aguilar
Date:2014
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Birkhuser
Size:1 online resource
Note:This compact monographis focused ondisturbance attenuation in nonsmooth dynamic systems, developing anH approach in the nonsmooth setting. Similar to the standard nonlinear H approach, the proposed nonsmooth designguarantees both the internal asympto tic stability of anominal closed-loop system and the dissipativity inequality, which statesthat the size of an error signal is uniformly bounded with respect to the worst-case size of an externaldisturbance signal. This guarantee is achieved by constructi ng an energy or storage function that satisfies the dissipativity inequality andis then utilized as a Lyapunov functiontoensurethe internal stability requirements. Advanced H Control is unique in the literature for its treatment of disturbance attenuation in nonsmooth systems. It synthesizes various tools, including HamiltonJacobiIsaacs partial differential inequalities as well asLinear Matrix Inequalities. Along with the finite-dimensional treatment, the synthesis is extended to infinite-dimensional sett ing, involving time-delay and distributed parameter systems. To help illustrate this synthesis, the bookfocuses onelectromechanical applicationswithnonsmooth phenomena caused by dry friction, backlash, and sampled-data measurements. Special attention is d evoted to implementation issues. Requiring familiarity with nonlinearsystems theory, this book will be accessible to graduate students interested in systems analysis and design, and is a welcome additionto the literature forresearchers and practitioners in these areas

Title:Probability Theory [electronic resource] : A Comprehensive Course
Author(s): Achim Klenke
Date:2014
Edition:2nd ed. 2014
Publisher:London : Springer London : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This second edition of the popular textbook contains a comprehensive course in modern probability theory. Overall, probabilistic concepts play an increasingly important role in mathematics, physics, biology, financial engineeringand computer science. They help us in understanding magnetism, amorphous media, genetic diversity and the perils of random developments at financial markets, and they guide us in constructing more efficient algorithms. To addressthese concepts, the title covers a wide variet y of topics, many of which are not usually found in introductory textbooks, such as: limit theorems for sums of random variables martingales percolation Markov chains andelectrical networks construction of stochastic processes Poisson point process and infinite divisibility large deviation principles and statistical physics Brownian motion stochastic integral and stochasticdifferential equations. The theory is developed rigorously and in a self-contained way, with the chapters on measure theory interlaced with the probabilistic chapters in order to display the power of the abstract concepts inprobability theory. This second edition has been carefully extended and includes many new features. It contains updated figures (over 50), computer simulat ions and some difficult proofs have been made more accessible. A wealth ofexamples and more than 270 exercises as well as biographic details of key mathematicians support and enliven the presentation. It will be of use to students and researchers in mathe matics and statistics in physics, computer science,economics and biology

Title:Normally Hyperbolic Invariant Manifolds [electronic resource] : The Noncompact Case

Date:2013
Publisher:Paris : Atlantis Press : Imprint: Atlantis Press
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This monograph treats normally hyperbolic invariant manifolds, with a focus on noncompactness. These objects generalize hyperbolic fixed points and are ubiquitous in dynamical systems. First, normally hyperbolic invariantmanifolds and their relation to hyperbolic fixed points and center manifolds, as well as, overviews of history and methods of proofs are presented. Furthermore, issues (such as uniformity and bounded geometry) arising due tononcompactness are discussed in great detail with examples. The main new result shown is a proof of persistence for noncompact normally hyperbolic invariant manifolds in Riemannian manifolds of bounded geometry. This extends well-knownresults by Fenichel and Hirsch, Pugh and Shub, and is complementary to noncompac tness results in Banach spaces by Bates, Lu and Zeng. Along the way, some new results in bounded geometry are obtained and a framework is developed toanalyze ODEs in a differential geometric context. Finally, the main result is extended to time and parame ter dependent systems and overflowing invariant manifolds

Note:It has been widely recognized nowadays the importance of introducing mathematical models that take into account possible sudden changes in the dynamical behavior of high-integrity systems or a safety-critical system. Suchsystems can be found in aircr aft control, nuclear power stations, robotic manipulator systems, integrated communication networks and large-scale flexible structures for space stations, and are inherently vulnerable to abrupt changes intheir structures caused by component or interconn ection failures. In this regard, a particularly interesting class of models is the so-called Markov jump linear systems (MJLS), which have been used in numerous applications includingrobotics, economics and wireless communication. Combining probability an d operator theory, the present volume provides a unified and rigorous treatment of recent results in control theory of continuous-time MJLS. This unique approachis of great interest to experts working in the field of linear systems with Markovian jump par ameters or in stochastic control. The volume focuses on one of the few cases of stochastic control problems with an actual explicit solutionand offers material well-suited to coursework, introducing students to an interesting and active research area. The book is addressed to researchers working in control and signal processing engineering. Prerequisites include a solidbackground in classical linear control theory, basic familiarity with continuous-time Markov chains and probability theory, and some eleme ntary knowledge of operator theory

Note:The book is dedicated to the construction of particular solutions of systems of ordinary differential equations in the form of series that are analogous to those used in Lyapunovs first method. A prominent place is given toasymptotic solutions that t end to an equilibrium position, especially in the strongly nonlinear case, where the existence of such solutions cant be inferred on the basis of the first approximation alone. The book is illustrated witha large number of concrete examples of systems in which the presence of a particular solution of a certain class is related to special properties of the systems dynamic behavior. It is a book for students and specialists who workwith dynamical systems in the fields of mechanics, mathematics, and theoreti cal physics

Note:Main concepts of quasi-stationary distributions (QSDs) for killed processes are the focus of the present volume. For diffusions, the killing is at the boundary and for dynamical systems there is a trap. The authors present theQSDs as the ones that al low describing the long-term behavior conditioned to not being killed. Studies in this research area started with Kolmogorov and Yaglom and in the last few decades have received a great deal of attention. Theauthors provide the exponential distribution pr operty of the killing time for QSDs, present the more general result on their existence and study the process of trajectories that survive forever. For birth-and-death chains anddiffusions, the existence of a single or a continuum of QSDs is described. Th ey study the convergence to the extremal QSD and give the classification of the survival process. In this monograph, the authors discuss Gibbs QSDs forsymbolic systems and absolutely continuous QSDs for repellers. The findings described are relevant to re searchers in the fields of Markov chains, diffusions, potential theory, dynamical systems, and in areas where extinction is acentral concept. The theory is illustrated with numerous examples. The volume uniquely presents the distribution behavior of indiv iduals who survive in a decaying population for a very long time. It also provides the background forapplications in mathematical ecology, statistical physics, computer sciences, and economics

Title:Invariance Entropy for Deterministic Control Systems [electronic resource] : An Introduction
Author(s): Christoph Kawan
Date:2013
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This monograph provides an introduction to the concept of invariance entropy, the central motivation of which lies in the need to deal with communication constraints in networked control systems. For the simplest possible networktopology, consisting of one controller and one dynamical system connected by a digital channel, invariance entropy provides a measure for the smallest data rate above which it is possible to render a given subset of the state spaceinvariant by means of a symbolic coder-contro ller pair. This concept is essentially equivalent to the notion of topological feedback entropy introduced by Nair, Evans, Mareels and Moran (Topological feedback entropy and nonlinearstabilization. IEEE Trans. Automat. Control 49 (2004), 15851597). The b ook presents the foundations of a theory which aims at finding expressions for invariance entropy in terms of dynamical quantities such as Lyapunov exponents.While both discrete-time and continuous-time systems are treated, the emphasis lies on systems gi ven by differential equations

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This work considers a small random perturbation of alpha-stable jump type nonlinear reaction-diffusion equations with Dirichlet boundary conditions over an interval. It has two stable points whose domains of attraction meet in aseparating manifold wi th several saddle points. Extending a method developed by Imkeller and Pavlyukevich it proves that in contrast to a Gaussian perturbation, the expected exit and transition times between the domains of attractiondepend polynomially on the noise intensity i n the small intensity limit. Moreover the solution exhibits metastable behavior: there is a polynomial time scale along which the solution dynamics correspond asymptotically to the dynamicbehavior of a finite-state Markov chain switching between the stabl e states

Title:Dimension Theory of Hyperbolic Flows [electronic resource]
Author(s): Lus Barreira
Date:2013
Publisher:Heidelberg : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The dimension theory of dynamical systems has progressively developed, especially over the last two decades, into an independent and extremely active field of research. Its main aim is to study the complexity of sets and measuresthat are invariant un der the dynamics. In particular, it is essential to characterizing chaotic strange attractors. To date, some parts of the theory have either only been outlined, because they can be reduced to the case of maps, orare too technical for a wider audience. In this respect, the present monograph is intended to provide a comprehensive guide. Moreover, the text is self-contained and with the exception of some basic results in Chapters 3 and 4, all theresults in the book include detailed proofs. The book is inten ded for researchers and graduate students specializing in dynamical systems who wish to have a sufficiently comprehensive view of the theory together with a workingknowledge of its main techniques. The discussion of some open problems is also included in the hope that it may lead to further developments. Ideally, readers should have some familiarity with the basic notions and results of ergodictheory and hyperbolic dynamics at the level of an introductory course in the area, though the initial chapters al so review all the necessary material

Note:This monograph lays down the foundations of the theory of complex Kleinian groups, a newborn area of mathematics whose origin can be traced back to the work of Riemann, Poincar, Picard and many others. Kleinian groupsare, classically, discrete groups of conformal automorphisms of the Riemann sphere, and these can themselves be regarded as groups of holomorphic automorphisms of the complex projective line CP1. When we go into higher dimensions,there is a dichotomy: Should we look at conformal automorp hisms of the n-sphere? or should we look at holomorphic automorphisms of higher dimensional complex projective spaces? These two theories differ in higher dimensions. In thefirst case we are talking about groups of isometries of real hyperbolic spaces, an area of mathematics with a long-standing tradition in the second, about an area of mathematics that is still in its infancy, and this is the focus ofstudy in this monograph. It brings together several important areas of mathematics, e.g. classical Kleini an group actions, complex hyperbolic geometry, crystallographic groups and the uniformization problem for complex manifolds

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
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.

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
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:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book unifies the dynamical systems and functional analysis approaches to the linear and nonlinear stability of waves. It synthesizes fundamental ideas of the past 20+ years of research, carefully balancing theory andapplication. The book isolate s and methodically develops key ideas by working through illustrative examples that are subsequently synthesized into general principles. Many of the seminal examples of stability theory, including orbitalstability of the KdV solitary wave, and asymptotic stability of viscous shocks for scalar conservation laws, are treated in a textbook fashion for the first time. It presents spectral theory from a dynamical systems and functionalanalytic point of view, including essential and absolute spectra, and devel ops general nonlinear stability results for dissipative and Hamiltonian systems. The structure of the linear eigenvalue problem for Hamiltonian systems iscarefully developed, including the Krein signature and related stability indices. The Evans function for the detection of point spectra is carefully developed through a series of frameworks of increasing complexity. Applications of theEvans function to the Orientation index, edge bifurcations, and large domain limits are developed through illustrative ex amples. The book is intended for first or second year graduate students in mathematics, or those with equivalentmathematical maturity. It is highly illustrated and there are many exercises scattered throughout the text that highlight and emphasize the key concepts. Upon completion of the book, the reader will be in an excellent position tounderstand and contribute to current research in nonlinear stability

Note:This collection of original articles and surveys, emerging from a 2011 conference in Bertinoro, Italy,addresses recent advances in linear and nonlinear aspects of the theory of partial differential equations (PDEs). Phase spaceanalysis methods, also known as microlocal analysis, have continued to yield striking results over the past years and are now one of the main tools of investigation of PDEs. Their role in many applications to physics, including quantumand spectral theory, is equally important. Key topics addressed in this volume include: *general theory of pseudodifferential operators *Hardy-type inequalities *linear and non-linear hyperbolic equations and systems *Schrdingerequations *water-wave equations *Euler-Poisson systems *Navier-Stokes equations *heat and parabolic equations Various levels of graduate students, along with researchers in PDEs and related fields, will find this book to be anexcellent resource.

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Linear-Quadratic Controls in Risk-Averse Decision Making cuts across control engineering (control feedback and decision optimization) and statistics (post-design performance analysis) with a common theme: reliability increaseseen from the responsive angle of incorporating and engineering multi-level performance robustness beyond the long-run average performance into control feedback design and decision making and complex dynamic systems from the start.This monograph provides a complete description o f statistical optimal control (also known as cost-cumulant control) theory. In control problems and topics, emphasis is primarily placed on major developments attained and explicitconnections between mathematical statistics of performance appraisals and d ecision and control optimization. Chapter summaries shed light on the relevance of developed results, which makes this monograph suitable for graduate-levellectures in applied mathematics and electrical engineering with systems-theoretic concentration, el ective study or a reference for interested readers, researchers, and graduate students who are interested in theoretical constructs anddesign principles for stochastic controlled systems.

Title:Attractors for infinite-dimensional non-autonomous dynamical systems [electronic resource]

Size:1 online resource

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book treats the theory of pullback attractors for non-autonomous dynamical systems. While the emphasis is on infinite-dimensional systems, the results are also applied to a variety of finite-dimensional examples. Thepurpose of the book is to pr ovide a summary of the current theory, starting with basic definitions and proceeding all the way to state-of-the-art results. As such it is intended as a primer for graduate students, and a reference formore established researchers in the field. The bas ic topics are existence results for pullback attractors, their continuity under perturbation, techniques for showing that their fibres are finite-dimensional, and structural resultsfor pullback attractors for small non-autonomous perturbations of gradient systems (those with a Lyapunov function). The structural results stem from a dynamical characterisation of autonomous gradient systems, which shows inparticular that such systems are stable under perturbation. Application of the structural results relies on the continuity of unstable manifolds under perturbation, which in turn is based on the robustness of exponential dichotomies: aself-contained development of these topics is given in full. After providing all the necessary theory the book treats a numb er of model problems in detail, demonstrating the wide applicability of the definitions and techniquesintroduced: these include a simple Lotka-Volterra ordinary differential equation, delay differential equations, the two-dimensional Navier-Stokes equatio ns, general reaction-diffusion problems, a non-autonomous version of theChafee-Infante problem, a comparison of attractors in problems with perturbations to the diffusion term, and a non-autonomous damped wave equation. Alexandre N. Carvalho is a Professo r at the University of Sao Paulo, Brazil. Jos A.Langa is a Profesor Titular at the University of Seville, Spain. James C. Robinson is a Professor at the University of Warwick, UK

Note:This collection covers a wide range of topics of infinite dimensional dynamical systems generated by parabolic and hyperbolic partial differential equations, solitary equations, lattice differential equations, delay differentialequations, and stochas tic differential equations. Infinite dimensional dynamical systems are generated by equations describing the evolution in time of systems whose status must be depicted in infinite dimensional phase spaces.Studying the long-term behaviors of such systems i s important in our understanding of their spatiotemporal pattern formation and global continuation, and has been among the major sources of motivation and applications of newdevelopments in nonlinear analysis and other mathematical theories. The theory of infinite dimensional dynamical systems has also increasingly important applications in the physical, chemical and life sciences. This book collects 19papers from 48 invited lecturers to the International Conference on Infinite Dimensional Dynamical Syste ms held at York University, Toronto, in September of 2008. As the conference was dedicated to Professor George Sell from Universityof Minnesota on the occasion of his 70th birthday, this collection reflects his pioneering work and influence in core areas of dynamical systems, including non-autonomous dynamical systems, skew-product flows, invariant manifoldstheory, infinite dimensional dynamical systems, approximation dynamics, and fluid flows

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:A billiard is a dynamical system in which a point particle alternates between free motion and specular reflections fromthe boundaryof a domain.Exterior Billiards presents billiards in the complement of domains and theirapplications in aerodynamics an d geometrical optics. This book distinguishes itself from existing literature by presenting billiard dynamics outside bounded domains, including scattering, resistance, invisibility andretro-reflection. It begins with an overview of the mathematical notat ions used throughout the book and a brief review of the main results. Chapters 2 and 3 are focused on problems of minimal resistance and Newtons problem inmedia with positive temperature. In chapters 4 and 5, scattering of billiards bynonconvex and rough domains is characterized and some related special problems of optimal mass transportation are studied. Applications in aerodynamicsare addressed next and problems of invisibility and retro-reflection within the framework of geometric optics conclude the t ext. The book will appeal to mathematicians working in dynamical systems and calculus of variations.Specialists working in the areas of applications discussed will also find it useful

Note:Number theory, spectral geometry, and fractal geometry are interlinked in this in-depth study of the vibrations of fractal strings that is, one-dimensional drums with fractal boundary. This second edition of Fractal Geometry,Complex Dimensions and Ze ta Functions will appeal to students and researchers in number theory, fractal geometry, dynamical systems, spectral geometry, complex analysis, distribution theory, and mathematical physics. The significantstudies and problems illuminated in this work ma y be used in a classroom setting at the graduate level. Key Features include: The Riemann hypothesis is given a natural geometric reformulation in the context ofvibrating fractal strings Complex dimensions of a fractal string are studied in detail, and used to understand the oscillations intrinsic to the corresponding fractal geometries and frequency spectra Explicit formulas are extended to apply to the geometric, spectral, and dynamical zeta functions associated with a fractal Examples of such explic it formulas include a Prime Orbit Theorem witherror term for self-similar flows, and a geometric tube formula The method of Diophantine approximation is used to study self-similar strings and flows Analytical and geometric methods are used toobtain new results about the vertical distribution of zeros of number-theoretic and other zeta functions The unique viewpoint of this book culminates in the definition of fractality as the presence of nonreal complex dimensions. Thefinal chapter (13) is new to the s econd edition and discusses several new topics, results obtained since the publication of the first edition, and suggestions for future developments in the field. Review of the First Edition: Thebook is self contained, the material organized in chapters preceded by an introduction and finally there are some interesting applications of the theor
