Title:Leonid Isaakovich Mandelstam [electronic resource] : Research, Teaching, Life
Author(s): Alexander Pechenkin
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This biography of the famous Soviet physicist Leonid Isaakovich Mandelstam (1889-1944), who became a Professor at Moscow State University in 1925, describes his contributions to both physics and technology, as well as discussingthe scientific communi ty which formed around him, usually called the Mandelstam school. Mandelstams life story is thereby placed in its proper cultural context. The following more general issues are taken under consideration: theimpact of German scientific culture on Russian s cience the problems and fates of Russian intellectuals during the revolutionary and post-revolutionary years the formation of the Soviet Academy of Sciences and transformation of thesystem of higher education in the USSR during the 1920's and 1930's.The a uthor shows that Mandelstams fundamental writings and his lectures notes allow to reconstruct his philosophy of science and his approach to the social andethical functions of science and science education. That reconstruction is enhanced through extensive use of hitherto unpublished archival material as well as the transcripts of personal interviews conducted by the author

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Statistical science as organized in formal academic departments is relatively new. With a few exceptions, most Statistics and Biostatistics departments have been created within the past 60 years. This book consists of a setof memoirs, one for each de partment in the U.S. created by the mid-1960s. The memoirs describe key aspects of the departments history -- its founding, its growth, key people in its development, success stories (such as majorresearch accomplishments) and the occasional failure story , PhD graduates who have had a significant impact, its impact on statistical education, and a summary of where the department stands today and its vision for the future. Readhere all about how departments such as at Berkeley, Chicago, Harvard, and Stanfor d started and how they got to where they are today. The book should also be of interest to scholars in the field of disciplinary history

Title:A Theory of Branched Minimal Surfaces [electronic resource]
Author(s): Anthony Tromba
Date:2012
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:One of the most elementary questions in mathematics is whether an area minimizing surface spanning a contour in three space is immersed or not i.e. does its derivative have maximal rank everywhere. The purpose of this monographis to present an elemen tary proof of this very fundamental and beautiful mathematical result. The exposition follows the original line of attack initiated by Jesse Douglas in his Fields medal work in 1931, namely use Dirichlet's energyas opposed to area. Remarkably, the author shows how to calculate arbitrarily high orders of derivatives of Dirichlet's energy defined on the infinite dimensional manifold of all surfaces spanning a contour, breaking new ground in theCalculus of Variations, where normally only the second derivativ e or variation is calculated. The monograph begins with easy examples leading to a proof in a large number of cases that can be presented in a graduate course in eithermanifolds or complex analysis. Thus this monograph requires only the most basic knowled ge of analysis, complex analysis and topology and can therefore be read by almost anyone with a basic graduate education

Title:Algoritmi [electronic resource] : Lo spirito dellinformatica
Author(s): David Harel
Yishai Feldman
Date:2008
Publisher:Milano : Springer Milan : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Gli algoritmi sono il cuore dellinformatica e della matematica, poich senza di loro luso del computer non sarebbe possibile. In questo libro, che nella sua edizione inglese un bestseller da molto tempo, Harel eFeldmann rispondono a tutte le domande relative a questo tema. Parlano della valutazione, della correttezza e dellefficacia degli algoritmi, ma chiariscono anche qualche dubbio sulle tecniche di programmazione e si riferisconoinoltre allattualissima discussione sul calcolo quantistico. Il libr o utile sia come testo base per un corso universitario introduttivo allinformatica, sia come introduzione generale alle scienze naturali, alla matematica oallingegneria. Questo libro un autentico tour de force. Harel scrive con una verve, una chiarezza e unimmaginazione fuori dal comune. Attraverso luso di domande stuzzicanti ed esempi selezionati con cura e spessodivertenti, lautore trasmette al lettore lentusiasmo e la soddisfazione intellettuale della ricerca nel campo dellinformatica. Senza usare la matematica formale, ma senza per questo motivo sacrificare lintegritintellettuale, egli comunica al lettore generale i profondi principi su cui si fonda linformatica principi che, prima dora, risultavano accessibili solo attraverso libri di testo e artic oli scientifici molto complessi.Rappresenta il meglio della scrittura scientifica.
