Title:Free-Electron Lasers in the Ultraviolet and X-Ray Regime [electronic resource] : Physical Principles, Experimental Results, Technical Realization
Author(s): Peter Schmser
Martin Dohlus
Jrg Rossbach
Christopher Behrens
Date:2014
Edition:2nd ed. 2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:The main goal of the book is to provide a systematic and didactic approach to the physics and technology of free-electron lasers. Numerous figures are used for illustrating the underlying ideas and concepts, and links to otherfields of physics are pr ovided. After an introduction to undulator radiation and the low-gain FEL, the one-dimensional theory of the high-gain FEL is developed in a systematic way. Particular emphasis is put on explaining andjustifying the various assumptions and approximations that are needed to obtain the differential and integral equations governing the FEL dynamics. Analytical and numerical solutions are presented and important FEL parameters aredefined, such as gain length, FEL bandwidth and saturation power. One of the mos t important features of a high-gain FEL, the formation of microbunches, is studied at length. The increase of gain length due to beam energy spread, spacecharge forces, and three-dimensional effects such as betatron oscillations and optical diffraction is analyzed. The mechanism of Self-Amplified Spontaneous Emission is described theoretically and illustrated with numerous experimentalresults. Various methods of FEL seeding by coherent external radiation are introduced, together with experimental results. The worlds first soft X-ray FEL, the user facility FLASH at DESY, is described in some detail to give animpression of the complexity of such an accelerator-based light source. The last chapter is devoted to the new hard X-ray FELs which generate extremel y intense radiation in the Angstrm regime. The appendices contain supplementarymaterial and more involved calculations.

Author(s): Matthieu Cristelli
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Tools and methods from complex systems science can have a considerable impact on the way in which the quantitative assessment of economic and financial issues is approached, as discussed in this thesis. Firstit is shownthatthe self-organization of fi nancial markets is a crucial factor in the understanding of their dynamics. In fact, using an agent-based approach, it is argued that financial markets stylized facts appear only in the self-organizedstate. Secondly, the thesis points out the potential of so-called big data science for financial market modeling, investigating how web-driven data canyield a picture ofmarket activities: it has been found that web query volumesanticipate trade volumes. As a third achievement, the metrics developed herefor co untry competitiveness and product complexity is groundbreaking incomparison to mainstream theories of economic growth and technological development.A key element in assessing the intangible variables determining the success of countries in the present glo balized economy is represented by the diversification of the productive basket of countries. The comparison between the level ofcomplexity of a country's productive system and economic indicators such as the GDP per capita discloses its hidden growth pote ntial

Note:Predicting the Future: Completing Models of Observed Complex Systems provides a general framework for the discussion of model building and validation across a broad spectrum of disciplines. This is accomplished through thedevelopment of an exact path integral for use in transferring information from observations to a model of the observed system. Through many illustrative examples drawn from models in neuroscience, fluid dynamics, geosciences, andnonlinear electrical circuits, the concepts are exempl ified in detail. Practical numerical methods for approximate evaluations of the path integral are explored, and their use in designing experiments and determining a model'sconsistency with observations is investigated. Using highly instructive examples, t he problems of data assimilation and the means to treat them are clearly illustrated. This book will be useful for students and practitioners ofphysics, neuroscience, regulatory networks, meteorology and climate science, network dynamics, fluid dynamics, and other systematic investigations of complex systems

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book introduces and explores modern developments in the well established field of Hamiltonian dynamical systems. It focuses on high degree-of-freedom systems and the transitional regimes between regular and chaotic motion.The role of nonlinear n ormal modes is highlighted and the importance of low-dimensional tori in the resolution of the famous FPU paradox is emphasized. Novel powerful numerical methods are used to study localization phenomena anddistinguish order from strongly and weakly chaoti c regimes. The emerging hierarchy of complex structures in such regimes gives rise to particularly long-lived patterns and phenomena called quasi-stationary states, which are explored inparticular in the concrete setting of one-dimensional Hamiltonian lat tices and physical applications in condensed matter systems. The self-contained and pedagogical approach is blended with a unique balance between mathematicalrigor, physics insights and concrete applications. End of chapter exercises and (more demanding) research oriented problems provide many opportunities to deepen the readers insights into specific aspects of the subject matter. Addressing a broad audience of graduate students, theoretical physicists and applied mathematicians, this text combines the b enefits of a reference work with those of a self-study guide for newcomers to the field

Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:With the aim of providing a deeper insight into possible mechanisms of biological self-organization, this thesis presents new approaches to describe the process of self-assembly and the impact of spatial organization on thefunction of membrane protei ns, from a statistical physics point of view. It focuses on three important scenarios: the assembly of membrane proteins, the collective response of mechanosensitive channels and the function of the twinarginine translocation (Tat) system. Using methods f rom equilibrium and non-equilibrium statistical mechanics, general conclusions were drawn that demonstrate the importance of the protein-protein interactions. Namely, in the firstpart a general aggregation dynamics model is formulated, and used to show th at fragmentation crucially affects the efficiency of the self-assembly process of proteins. In the second part, by mapping the membrane-mediated forces into asimplified many-body system, the dynamic and equilibrium behaviour of interacting mechanosensitiv e channels is derived, showing that protein agglomeration strongly impacts its desired function. The final part develops a model thatincorporates both the agglomeration and transport function of the Tat system, thereby providing a comprehensive descriptio n of this self-organizing process

Note:Financial markets are becoming increasingly complex. The financial crisis of 2008 to 2009 has demonstrated that an improved understanding of the mechanisms embedded in the market is a key requirement for the estimation offinancial risk. Recently, con cepts of theoretical physics, in particular concepts of complex systems, have proven to be very useful in this regard. Michael C. Mnnix analyses the statistical dependencies in financial markets anddevelops mathematical models using concepts and methods f rom physics. The author focuses on aspects that played a key role in the emergence of the recent financial crisis: estimation of credit risk, dynamics of statisticaldependencies, and correlations on small time-scales. He visualizes the findings for variou s large-scale empirical studies of market data. The results give novel insights into the mechanisms of financial markets and allow conclusions onhow to reduce financial risk significantly

Title:Modern Issues and Methods in Biostatistics [electronic resource]
Author(s): Mark Chang
Date:2011
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Classic biostatistics, a branch of statistical science, has as its main focus the applications of statistics in public health, the life sciences, and the pharmaceutical industry. Modern biostatistics, beyond just a simpleapplication of statistics, is a confluence of statistics and knowledge of multiple intertwined fields. The application demands, the advancements in computer technology, and the rapid growth of life science data (e.g., genomics data)have promoted the formation of modern biostatistics. There are at least three characteristics of modern biostatistics: (1) in-depth engagement in the application fields that require penetration of knowledge across several fields, (2)high-level complexity of data because they are longitudinal, incomplete, o r latent because they are heterogeneous due to a mixture of data or experiment types, because of high-dimensionality, which may make meaningful reductionimpossible, or because of extremely small or large size and (3) dynamics, the speed of development in methodology and analyses, has to match the fast growth of data with a constantly changing face. This book is written forresearchers, biostatisticians/statisticians, and scientists who are interested in quantitative analyses. The goal is to introduce moder n methods in biostatistics and help researchers and students quickly grasp key concepts and methods.Many methods can solve the same problem and many problems can be solved by the same method, which becomes apparent when those topics are discussed inthis s ingle volume

Note:For over a decade, complex networks have steadily grown as an important tool across abroad array of academic disciplines, with applications ranging from physics to social media.A tightly organizedcollectionofcarefully-selected papers on the subject, Towards an Information Theory of Complex Networks: Statistical Methods and Applications presents theoretical and practical results about information-theoretic and statisticalmodels of complex networks in the natural sciences and humanities.The book'smajor goal is to advocate and promote a combination of graph-theoretic, information-theoretic, and statistical methods as a way to better understand andcharacterize real-world networks. This volume is the first to present a self-contained, comprehensive overvi ew of information-theoretic modelsof complex networks with an emphasis on applications. It begins with four chaptersdeveloping the most significant formal-theoretical issues of network modeling,butthe majority of the book is devoted tocombining theoretica l results with an empirical analysis of real networks. Specific topics include: chemicalgraph theory ecosystem interaction dynamics social ontologies language networks software systems Thiswork marks a first step toward establishing advanced statistical i nformation theory as a unified theoretical basis of complexnetworksfor allscientific disciplines. As such, itcan serve asa valuable resource foradiverse audience of advanced students and professional scientists.It is primarilyintendedas a reference for re search, but couldalso be a useful supplemental graduate text in courses related to information science, graph theory, machine learning, and computational biology, among others

Note:Cities can be considered to be among the largest and most complex artificial networks created by human beings. Due to the numerous and diverse human-driven activities, urban network topology and dynamics can differ quitesubstantially from that of nat ural networks and so call for an alternative method of analysis. The intent of the present monograph is to lay down the theoretical foundations for studying the topology of compact urban patterns, usingmethods from spectral graph theory and statistical ph ysics. These methods are demonstrated as tools to investigate the structure of a number of real cities with widely differing properties: medieval German cities, the webs of citycanals in Amsterdam and Venice, and a modern urban structure such as found in Manhattan. Last but not least, the book concludes by providing a brief overview of possible applications that will eventually lead to a useful body ofknowledge for architects, urban planners and civil engineers

Note:Much of biology can be understood in terms of demography. It is the demographic processes of birth and death which govern rates of population growth and the rates at which gene frequencies change. The analysis of demographicprocesses in free-living o rganisms is, however, far from simple. Scientists from diverse fields in biology and statistics have united to address the challenges by developing mark-recapture methods and other approaches. Progress hasbeen rapid, and this volume represents a snapshot of the emerging field. It has eleven sections in total, covering the most important biological and statistical frontiers, new software developments, and an open forum. It covers thelatest approaches in modeling population dynamics, evolutionary ecology an d wildlife biology. It addresses issues in the estimation of abundance and movement, and it covers new statistical approaches in the combination of information,Bayesian statistics, Robust Designs and the modeling of state-uncertainty

Title:Pedestrian Dynamics [electronic resource] : Feedback Control of Crowd Evacuation

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Effective evacuation of people from closed spaces is an extremely important topic, since it can save real lives in emergency situations that can be brought about by natural and human made disasters. Usually there are static mapsposted at various plac es at buildings that illustrate routes that should be taken during emergencies. However, when disasters happen, some of these routes might not be valid because of structural problems due to the disaster itself andmore importantly because of the distributi on of congestion of people spread over the area. The average flow of traffic depends on the traffic density. Therefore, if all the people follow the same route, or follow a route withoutknowing the congestion situation, they can end up being part of the c ongestion which results in very low flow rate or worse a traffic jam. Hence it becomes extremely important to design evacuations that inform people how fast and inwhich direction to move based on real-time information obtained about the people distributio n using various sensors. The sensors used can include cameras, infra red sensors etc., and the technology used to inform people about thedesired movement can be communicated using light matrix, small speakers, and in the future using wireless PDAs. This b ook provides mathematical models of pedestrian movements that can be used specifically for designing feedback controllaws for effective evacuation. The book also provides various feedback control laws to accomplish the effective evacuation. The book uses the hydrodynamic hyperbolic PDE macroscopic pedestrian models since they are amenable to feedbackcontrol design. The control designs are obtained through different nonlinear techniques including Lyapunov functional techniques, feedback linearization in th e distributed model, and some discretized techniques

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The apparent contradiction of the results of the Fermi-Pasta-Ulam experiment conducted in 1953 and 1954 with the hypothesis that essentially any nonlinearity would lead to a system exhibiting ergodic behaviour has become known asthe Fermi-Pasta-Ulam Problem. This volume reviews the current understanding of this paradox without trying to force coherence on differing perspectives on the same problem by various groups or approaches. The contributions comprisestudies of one-dimensional chains, descriptio ns of numerical methods, heuristic theories, addressing the long standing and controversial problem of distinguishing chaos from noise in signal analysis, metastability, the relation ofthe FPU motions with the integrable equations, approaches using method s of perturbation theory and the proof of the applicability of KAM theory in FPU chains with energy very close to a minimum. For the convenience of the reader theoriginal work of FPU is reprinted in an appendix. The order of the contributions reflects the aim of leading the interested but inexperienced reader through gradual understanding, starting from general analysis, and proceeding towardsmore specialized topics

Title:Non-Equilibrium Phase Transitions [electronic resource] : Volume I: Absorbing Phase Transitions

Date:2008
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book describes two main classes of non-equilibrium phase-transitions: (a) static and dynamics of transitions into an absorbing state, and (b) dynamical scaling in far-from-equilibrium relaxation behaviour and ageing. Thefirst volume begins with an introductory chapter which recalls the main concepts of phase-transitions, set for the convenience of the reader in an equilibrium context. The extension to non-equilibrium systems is made by using directedpercolation as the main paradigm of absorbing phase transitions and in view of the richness of the known results an entire chapter is devoted to it, including a discussion of recent experimental results. Scaling theories and a largeset of both numerical and analytical methods for the study of non-equ ilibrium phase transitions are thoroughly discussed. The techniques used for directed percolation are then extended to other universality classes and many importantresults on model parameters are provided for easy reference

Note:Understanding cooperative phenomena far from equilibrium is one of fascinating challenges of present-day many-body physics. Glassy behaviour and the physical ageing process of such materials are paradigmatic examples. The presentvolume, primarily int ended as introduction and reference for postgraduate students and nonspecialist researchers from related fields, collects six extensive lectures addressing selected experimental and theoretical issues in the fieldof glassy systems. Lecture 1 gives an intr oduction and overview of the time-dependent behaviour of magnetic spin glasses. Lecture 2 is devoted to an in-depth discussion on the nature of the thermal glass-transition in structuralglasses. Lecture 3 examines the glassy behaviour of granular systems. Lecture 4 gives a thorough introduction to the techniques and applications of Monte-Carlo simulations and the analysis of the resulting data through scaling methods.Lecture 5 introduces the zero-range-process concept as simple but subtle model to describ e a range of static and dynamic properties of glassy systems. Lecture 6 shows how familiar RG methods for equilibrium systems can be extended tosystems far from equilibrium

Note:A.N. Kolmogorov (b. Tambov 1903, d. Moscow 1987) was one of the most brilliant mathematicians that the world has ever known. Incredibly deep and creative, he was able to approach each subject with a completely new point of view:in a few magnificent p ages, which are models of shrewdness and imagination, and which astounded his contemporaries, he changed drastically the landscape of the subject. Most mathematicians prove what they can, Kolmogorov was of thosewho prove what they want. For this book seve ral world experts were asked to present one part of the mathematical heritage left to us by Kolmogorov. Each chapter treats one of Kolmogorov's research themes, or a subject that was inventedas a consequence of his discoveries. His contributions are prese nted, his methods, the perspectives he opened to us, the way in which this research has evolved up to now, along with examples of recent applications and a presentation ofthe current prospects. This book can be read by anyone with a master's (even a bache lor's) degree in mathematics, computer science or physics, or more generally by anyone who likes mathematical ideas. Rather than present detailedproofs, the main ideas are described. A bibliography is provided for those who wish to understand the technica l details. One can see that sometimes very simple reasoning (with the right interpretation and tools) can lead in a few linesto very substantial results. The Kolmogorov Legacy in Physics was published by Springer in 2004 (ISBN 978-3-540-20307-0)

Title:Geometry and Topology in Hamiltonian Dynamics and Statistical Mechanics [electronic resource]
Author(s): Marco Pettini
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 explores the foundations of hamiltonian dynamical systems and statistical mechanics, in particular phase transition, from the point of view of geometry and topology. A broad participation of topology in these fields hasbeen lacking and this book will provide a welcome overview of the current research in the area, in which the author himself is a pioneer. Using geometrical thinking to solve fundamental problems in these areas, compared to the purelyanalytical methods usually used in physics could be highly productive. The author skillfully guides the reader, whether mathematician or physicists through the background needed to understand and use these techniques. Dr. Marco Pettiniis affiliated with the Istituto Nazionale di Astrofisica Osser vatorio Astrofisico di Arretri in Firenze, Italy. From the foreword: It is in particular the quality of mind of the author and his deep physical, as well asmathematical insights, which make this book so special and inspiring. It is a must for those who wa nt to venture into a new approach to old problems or want to use new tools for new problems. -- Professor E. G. D. Cohen,Rockefellar University, New York

Note:This book is drawn from across many active fields of mathematics and physics, and has connections to atmospheric dynamics, spherical codes, graph theory, constrained optimization problems, Markov Chains, and Monte Carlo methods.It addresses how to ac cess interesting, original, and publishable research in statistical modeling of large-scale flows and several related fields. The authors f this book explicitly reach around the major branches of mathematics andphysics, showing how the use of a few straig htforward approaches can create a cornucopia of intriguing questions and the tools to answer them. In reading this book, the reader will learn how to research a topic and how to understandstatistical mechanics treatments of fluid dynamics. Of particular i nterest should be the application of Monte Carlo methods to problems like dispersal of points on the sphere, the phase transitions of in viscid fluid flows in modelsthat increasingly approach the conditions of actual planetary atmospheres, and the treatme nt of negative absolute temperatures and the effects these extremely high-energy states have on fluid flows. Special attention is given tospherical models as well. This book is intended for the upper-level undergraduate or the beginning graduate level cou rses of mathematics and physics. It will also be of interest to readers interested in statistical mechanics methodsapplied to fluid mechanics problems. Readers will gain an understanding of how to synthesize new mathematics by applying familiar tools in n ew ways, and develop new tools to fit particular applications

Title:The Random-Cluster Model [electronic resource]
Author(s): Geoffrey R Grimmett
Date:2006
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The random-cluster model has emerged in recent years as a key tool in the mathematical study of ferromagnetism. It may be viewed as an extension of percolation to include Ising and Potts models, and its analysis is a mix ofarguments from probability and geometry. This systematic study includes accounts of the subcritical and supercritical phases, together with clear statements of important open problems. There is an extensive treatment of the first-order(discontinuous) phase transition, as well as a chapter devoted to applications of the random-cluster method to other models of statistical physics

Title:Large Eddy Simulation for Incompressible Flows [electronic resource] : An Introduction
Author(s): Pierre Sagaut
Date:2006
Edition:Third Edition
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The first and most exhaustive work of its kind devoted entirely to the subject, Large Eddy Simulation presents a comprehensive account and a unified view of this young but very rich discipline. LES is the only efficient techniquefor approaching high Reynolds numbers when simulating industrial, natural or experimental configurations. The author concentrates on incompressible fluids and chooses his topics in treating with care both the mathematical ideas andtheir applications. The book addresses resear chers as well as graduate students and engineers. The second edition was a greatly enriched version motivated both by the increasing theoretical interest in LES and the increasing number ofapplications. Two entirely new chapters were devoted to the coupli ng of LES with multiresolution multidomain techniques and to the new hybrid approaches that relate the LES procedures to the classical statistical methods based on theReynolds-Averaged Navier-Stokes equations. This 3rd edition adds various sections to the text such as a careful error analysis of filtered density function models and multiscale models. It also contains two new chapters dealing withthe mathematical representations of LES and the prediction of active and passive scalar dynamics, which are of considerable interest for engineering and geophysical modeling. The part on geophysical flow has much to offer on a criticalcurrent issue. To quote from the foreword to the third edition written by Charles Meneveau: ... this meticulously assembled and sig nificantly enlarged description of the many aspects of LES will be a most welcome addition to thebookshelves of scientists and engineers in fluid mechanics, LES practitioners, and students of turbulence in general.
