Title:Semigroup Methods for Evolution Equations on Networks [electronic resource]
Author(s): Delio Mugnolo
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This concise text is based on a series of lectures held only a few years ago and originally intended as an introduction to known results on linear hyperbolic and parabolic equations. Yet the topic of differential equations ongraphs, ramified spaces, and more general network-like objects has recently gained significant momentum and, well beyond the confines of mathematics, there is a lively interdisciplinary discourse on all aspects of so-called complexnetworks. Such network-like structures can be fou nd in virtually all branches of science, engineering and the humanities, and future research thus calls for solid theoretical foundations. This book is specifically devoted tothe study of evolution equations i.e., of time-dependent differential equation s such as the heat equation, the wave equation, or the Schrdinger equation (quantum graphs) bearing in mind that the majority of the literature inthe last ten years on the subject of differential equations of graphs has been devoted to elliptic equations and related spectral problems. Moreover, for tackling the most general settings - e.g. encoded in the transmission conditionsin the network nodes - one classical and elegant tool is that of operator semigroups. This book is simultaneously a very concise introduction to this theory and a handbook on its applications to differential equations on networks. Witha more interdisciplinary readership in mind, full proofs of mathematical statements have been frequently omitted in favor of keeping the text as conc ise, fluid and self-contained as possible. In addition, a brief chapter devoted to thefield of neurodynamics of the brain cortex provides a concrete link to ongoing applied research

Title:The Art of Science [electronic resource] : From Perspective Drawing to Quantum Randomness
Author(s): Rossella Lupacchini
Annarita Angelini
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Like linear perspective, complex numbers and probability are notable discoveries of the Renaissance. History has been quick to recognize the crucial impact of linear perspective on painting, but reluctant to acknowledge theimportance of complex numbe rs and probability. Both were treated with a great deal of suspicion by the scientific establishment and overlooked for many years. It was only in the twentieth century, when quantum theory defined the notionof complex probability amplitude, that complex numbers merged with probability and transformed the image of the physical world. From a theoretical point of view, however, the space opened to painting by linear perspective and thespace opened to science by complex numbers are equally valuable and share significant characteristics. By exploring that common ground, The Art of Science will lead the reader to complement Leonardos vision of painting as a scienceand to see science as an art. Its aim is to restore a visual dimension to mathematical sciences an element dulled, if not obscured, by historians, philosophers, and scientists themselves

Title:Exploring Science Through Science Fiction [electronic resource]
Author(s): Barry B Luokkala
Date:2014
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:How does Einsteins description of space and time compare with Dr. Who? Can James Bond really escape from an armor-plated railroad car by cutting through the floor with a laser concealed in a wristwatch? What would it take tocreate a fully-intelligent android, such as Star Treks Commander Data? How might we discover intelligent civilizations on other planets in the galaxy? Is human teleportation possible? Will our technological society ever reach thepoint at which it becomes lawful to discriminate on the basis of genetic information, as in the movie GATTACA? Exploring Science Through Science Fiction addresses these and other interesting questions, using science fiction as aspringboard for discussing fundamental science concepts and cutting-edge scienc e research. The book is designed as a primary text for a college-level course which should appeal to students in the fine arts and humanities as well as toscience and engineering students. It includes references to original research papers, landmark scien tific publications and technical documents, as well as a broad range of science literature at a more popular level. With over 180references to specific scenes in 130 sci-fi movies and TV episodes, spanning over 100 years of cinematic history, it should be an enjoyable read for anyone with an interest in science and science fiction

Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The sheer computing power of modern information technology is changing the face of research not just in science, technology and mathematics, but in humanities and cultural studies too. Recent decades have seen a major shift bothin attitudes and deplo yment of computers, which are now vital and highly effective tools in disciplines where they were once viewed as elaborate typewriters. This revealing volume details the vast array of computing applications thatresearchers in the humanities now have recou rse to, including the dissemination of scholarly information through virtual co-laboratories, data retrieval, and the modeling of complex processes that contribute to our natural andcultural heritage. One key area covered in this book is the versatility o f computers in presenting images and graphics, which is transforming the analysis of data sets and archaeological reconstructions alike. The papers publishedhere are grouped into three broad categories that cover mathematical and computational methods, r esearch developments in information systems, and a detailed portrayal of ongoing work on documenting, restoring and presenting culturalmonuments including the temples in Pompeii and the Banteay Chhmar temples of the Angkorian period in present-day Cambodi a. Originally presented at a research workshop in Heidelberg, Germany, they reflect the rapidly developing identityof computational humanities as an interdisciplinary field in its own right, as well as demonstrating the breadth of perspectives in this you ng and vibrant research area

Title:It Came From Outer Space Wearing an RAF Blazer! [electronic resource] : A Fan's Biography of Sir Patrick Moore
Author(s): Martin Mobberley
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:To British television viewers, the name Patrick Moore has been synonymous with Astronomy and Space Travel since he first appeared on The Sky at Night in 1957. To amateur astronomers he has been a source of inspiration, joy,humour and even an eccentri c role model since that time. Most people know that his 55 years of presenting The Sky at Night is a world record, but what was he really like in person? What did he do away from the TV cameras, in hisobservatory, and within the British Astronomical Assoc iation, the organisation that inspired him as a youngster? Also, precisely what did he do during the War Years, a subject that has always been shrouded in mystery? Martin Mobberley,a friend of Patrick Moores for 30 years, and a former President of the Bri tish Astronomical Association, has spent ten years exhaustively researching Patricks real life away from the TV cameras. His childhood, RAF service,tireless voluntary work for astronomy and charity and his endless book writing are all examined in detail. His astronomical observations are also examined in unprecedented detail, along with the battles he fought along the way and hishatred of bureaucracy and political correctness. No fan of Sir Patrick Moore can possibly live without this work on their booksh elf!

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

Note:Soon after you begin studying the sky through your small telescope or binoculars, you will probably be encouraged by others to make sketches of what you see. Sketching is a time-honored tradition in amateur astronomy and datesback to the earliest tim es, when telescopes were invented. Even though we have lots of new imaging technologies nowadays, including astrophotography, most observers still use sketching to keep a record of what they see, make thembetter observers, and in hopes of perhaps contribu ting something to the body of scientific knowledge about the Moon. Some even sketch because it satisfies their artistic side. The Moon presents some unique challenges to theastronomer-artist, the Moon being so fond of tricks of the light. Sketching the Mo on: An Astronomical Artists Guide, by five of the best lunar observer-artists working today, will guide you along your way and help you to achievereally high-quality sketches. All the major types of lunar features are covered, with a variety of sketching techniques applied to each. These techniques are explained and illustrated in ways that take the mystery out of artwork,rendering it (so to speak) more accessible to those observers interested in going farther than merely illustrating their notes. So use this comprehensive and easy to follow guide to make astronomy more than science for youmake italso an art!

Title:The Astronomer Jules Janssen [electronic resource] A Globetrotter of Celestial Physics

Date:2012
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:Every aspect of the personality of Janssen (18241907) that DArtagnan of science, this bard of the Sun, and this audacious master builder is covered here by Franoise Launay, his attentive and equally eruditebiographer. A physicist, inventor and buil der, Janssen was guided by his energy and curiosity. His research followed two directions: on the one hand the atmospheres of the Earth and the Sun, and on the other, two techniques:spectroscopy and photography. Among his numerous voyages across the globe , he went to Japan in 1874 to follow the transit of Venus in front of the Sun, the same year in which he invented his famous photographic revolver, which was, intruth, a great technical success. To observe the Sun during total eclipses he traveled to the Indies in 1868, to Oran in 1870 (escaping from besieged Paris by balloon!), returned to India in 1871, left for Siam in 1875 and, in 1883,for an island in the Pacific. One can thus understand why Henriette often complained of the solitude in which she was left by her peripatetic husband: There are men who leave their wives for mistresses you do it for journeys!... Basking in the glow of his success, Janssen was able to undertake the construction of the great astrophysical observatory of which he had dream ed. It was at Meudon that he had it built.

Note:When a dissertation gets completed, the normal rule is that it is never read. By anyone.David H. Levys dissertation - The Sky in Early Modern English Literature: A Study of Allusions to Celestial Events in Elizabethanand Jacobean Writing, 1572-1620 - is different. It opens a whole new interdisciplinary field, which involves the beautiful relationship between the night sky and the works of the early modern period of English Literature. Althoughthe sky enters into much of literature through the ages, t he period involving William Shakespeare and his colleagues is particularly rich. When Shakespeare was about 8 years old, his father probably took himoutside his Stratford home into their northward-facing back yard. There, father and son gazed upon the fi rst great new star visible in the past 500 years, shining forth as brightly as Venus, and even visible in daylight. This newstar, which we now know as a supernova, completely unhinged old ideas about the cosmos. Combined with a parade of bright comets, a second bright new star in 1604, and a series of eclipses, people began to look at the sky moreseriously. In this book, Levy explores how the sky of that period was reflected in its literature. Levys ultimate goal in this book is to inspire his readers to do the same thing as their ancestors did solong agolook at the sky and appreciate how those long-gone authors read the sky

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

Title:Historical Encyclopedia of Natural and Mathematical Sciences [electronic resource]
Author(s): Ari Ben-Menahem
Date:2009
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This milestone extensive work combines the essentials of history biography, chronology, political and economic background with the observations, theories, principles, laws and equations that constitute the specifics ofscience. The 5800-page Encyclo pedia arises from the conviction that the optimal perspective on science is through the lens of history, setting aside traditional divisions of discipline and specialty, and rising above geopoliticalboundaries. Reaching from 4,200 BCE to the 21st century CE, the Encyclopedia relates (as the author himself puts it) not only who did it and when it was done but also precisely what was done. The author, Ari Ben-Menahem, surveys100 generations of great thinkers, offering 2070 detailed biographies of scientists , engineers, explorers and inventors, who left their mark on the history of science and technology. The span of coverage is all-encompassing:mathematics, philosophy, logic, physical and environmental sciences (including physics, chemistry, astronomy, eart h and space sciences and cosmology), life sciences (biology, medicine, physiology, botany, zoology and biochemistry),associated engineering disciplines, and the social sciences (among them economics, psychology, sociology, anthropology, linguistics and mo re). The six-volume Encyclopedia also includes 380 articles summarizing the time-line of ideas inthe leading fields of science, technology, mathematics and philosophy, plus useful tables, figures and photos, and 20 Science Progress Reports detailing scien tific setbacks. Interspersed throughout are quotations, gathered fromthe wit and wisdom of sages, savants and scholars throughout the ages from antiquity to modern times

Title:The Moon that Wasnt [electronic resource] The Saga of Venus Spurious Satellite
Author(s): Helge Kragh
Date:2008
Publisher:Basel : Birkhuser Basel
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book details the history of one of astronomys many spurious objects, the satellite of Venus. First spotted in 1645, the non-existing moon was observed more than a dozen times until the late eighteenth century. Althoughfew astronomers believed in the existence of the moon after about 1770, it continued to attract attention for at least another century. However, it has largely disappeared from the history of astronomy, and the rich historical sourceshave never been exploited. By telling the story of the enigmatic satellite in its proper historical context it is demonstrated that it was much more than a mere curiosity in the annals of astronomy Frederick II of Prussia wasfamiliar with it, and so was Bonnet, Kant and Voltaire. The satellite of Venu s belongs to the same category as other fictitious celestial bodies (such as the planet Vulcan), yet it had its own life and fascinating historicaltrajectory. By following this trajectory, the history of planetary astronomy is addressed in a novel way

Title:Patterns of Change [electronic resource] : Linguistic Innovations in the Development of Classical Mathematics
Author(s): Ladislav Kvasz
Date:2008
Publisher:Basel : Birkhuser Basel
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book offers a reconstruction of linguistic innovations in the history of mathematics innovations which changed the ways in which mathematics was done, understood and philosophically interpreted. It argues that there are atleast three ways in whi ch the language of mathematics has been changed throughout its history, thus determining the lines of development that mathematics has followed. One of these patterns of change, called a re-coding, generates twodevelopmental lines. The first of them conne cting arithmetic, algebra, differential and integral calculus and predicate calculus led to a gradual increase of the power of our calculating tools, turning difficult problems of the pastinto easy exercises. The second developmental line connecting synth etic geometry, analytic geometry, fractal geometry, and set theory led to a sophistication of the ways we construct geometrical objects, altering our perception of formand increasing our sensitivity to complex visual patterns. Another important pattern of change, called relativization, is illustrated by the development of synthetic geometry, connecting Euclids geometry, projective geometry,non-Euclidean geometry, and Kleins Erlanger Programm up to Hilberts Grundlagen der Geometrie. In this development the notions of space and geometric object underwent deep and radical changes culminating in the liberation ofobjects from the supremacy of space and so bringing to existence geometric objects which space would never tolerate. The book offers tools of analysi s by means of which scholars and students of the history and philosophy of mathematicscan attain better understanding of the various changes, which the subject of their study underwent in the course of history. The book brings also important insights for mathematics education connecting growth of language with thedevelopment of mathematical thought

Title:Symmetry [electronic resource] : Cultural-historical and ontological aspects of science-arts relations The natural and man-made world in an interdisciplinary approach
Author(s): Gyrgy Darvas
Date:2007
Publisher:Basel : Birkhuser Basel
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:All of us have a certain conception of what symmetry means, at least as far as its main forms are concerned (like mirror-reflection or rotation, but only rarely translation). What are the common features of these transformations?How can one generalis e them to explain similar phenomena that appear in different arts and sciences? What other forms of symmetry can we include in the scope of our study by the application of these generalised rules? How can a commonphenomenon lend possible solutions from on e discipline to another? Did you know that symmetry is a universal concept that has appeared in all cultures since prehistoric times, accompanying us through the history of mankind? Whatimportant role have asymmetries like the one-handedness of the neutri no played in the formation of matter, from the assumed Big Bang through to the asymmetries of the human brain? This book tries to explain these and a number ofrelated questions. This is the first comprehensive book on the topic since the publication of H. Weyls popular book on symmetry more than fifty years ago. It is relevant to almost all fields of science where symmetry appears as aphenomenon or is applied as a method, and where the concept is present in contemporary sciences, humanities and arts. Symm etry used to be a fundamental phenomenon in crystallography, where its basic concept was elaborated, inmorphological biology, and of course in mathematics, which provided its exact description. In the last half century symmetry (and symmetry breaking) has become a leading principle in physics, in all sciences that deal with thestructure of matter, as well as in the biochemistry of proteins, the study of the genetic code, brain research (where functional asymmetries have been revealed), psychology, and in developing architectural structures and in businessdecision-making, to name but a few examples. This book seeks to find common regularities among these apparently disparate phenomena. It covers most

Title:Voice and Speech Quality Perception [electronic resource] : Assessment and Evaluation
Author(s): Ute Jekosch
Date:2005
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Foundations of Voice and Speech Quality Perception starts out with the fundamental question of: How do listeners perceive voice and speech quality and how can these processes be modeled? Any quantitative answers requiremeasurements. This is natural f or physical quantities but harder to imagine for perceptual measurands. This book approaches the problem by actually identifying major perceptual dimensions of voice and speech quality perception,defining units wherever possible and offering paradigms to position these dimensions into a structural skeleton of perceptual speech and voice quality. The emphasis is placed on voice and speech quality assessment of systems inartificial scenarios. Many scientific fields are involved. This book bridges the gap be tween two quite diverse fields, engineering and humanities, and establishes the new research area of Voice and Speech Quality Perception

Title:Systems Approaches and Their Application [electronic resource] : Examples from Sweden

Date:2005
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Within a conceptual framework that is developed in the two first chapters, the actual application of systems thinking is described across a broad field of cases representing research, teaching, decision support and construction.All cases are presente d by experts who have actually been involved in the activities they describe. Thus, the broad selection of cases captures the great variation of systems thinking and how it is integrated into models and theoriesand solid knowledge pertaining to different substantive areas. At the same time all case study authors address the same set of questions that are developed in the conceptual chapters. This gives comparability across cases - chapters -and brings cohesion to the book. The focus on Sweden, an advanced country in systems thinking, reinforces the unitary context in which comparison can be made between a systems approach for better research (theory), better practice andbetter design and construction
