Title:Stability of Vector Differential Delay Equations [electronic resource]
Author(s): Michael I Gil
Date:2013
Publisher:Basel : Springer Basel : Imprint: Birkhuser
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Differential equations with delay naturallyarise in various applications, such as control systems, viscoelasticity, mechanics, nuclear reactors, distributed networks, heat flows, neural networks, combustion, interaction ofspecies, microbiology, learn ing models, epidemiology, physiology, and many others. This book systematically investigates the stability of linear as well as nonlinear vector differential equations with delay and equations with causalmappings. It presents explicit conditions for expon ential, absolute and input-to-state stabilities. These stability conditions are mainly formulated in terms of the determinants and eigenvalues of auxiliary matrices dependent on aparameter the suggested approachallows us to apply the well-known results of the theory of matrices. In addition, solution estimates for the considered equations are established which provide the bounds for regions of attraction ofsteady states. The main methodology presented in the book is based on a combined usage of the rece nt norm estimates for matrix-valued functionsand the following methods and results: the generalized Bohl-Perron principle and theintegral version of the generalized Bohl-Perron principle the freezing method the positivity of fundamental solutions. A signi ficant part of the book is devoted to the Aizerman-Myshkis problem and generalized Hill theory ofperiodic systems. The book is intended not only for specialists in the theory of functional differential equations and control theory, but also for anyone w ith a sound mathematical background interested in their variousapplications

Title:Brownian Dynamics at Boundaries and Interfaces [electronic resource] : In Physics, Chemistry, and Biology
Author(s): Zeev Schuss
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:Brownian dynamics serve as mathematical models for the diffusive motion of microscopic particles of various shapes in gaseous, liquid, or solid environments. The renewed interest in Brownian dynamics is due primarily to their keyrole in molecular and cellular biophysics: diffusion of ions and molecules is the driver of all life. Brownian dynamics simulations are the numerical realizations of stochastic differential equations that model the functions ofbiological micro devices such as protein ionic ch annels of biological membranes, cardiac myocytes, neuronal synapses, and many more. Stochastic differential equations are ubiquitous models in computational physics, chemistry,biophysics, computer science, communications theory, mathematical finance theor y, and many other disciplines. Brownian dynamics simulations of the random motion of particles, be it molecules or stock prices, give rise to mathematicalproblems that neither the kinetic theory of Maxwell and Boltzmann, nor Einsteins and Langevins theori es of Brownian motion could predict. This book takes the readers on a journey that starts with the rigorous definition ofmathematical Brownian motion, and ends with the explicit solution of a series of complex problems that have immediate applications. It is aimed at applied mathematicians, physicists, theoretical chemists, and physiologists who areinterested in modeling, analysis, and simulation of micro devices of microbiology. The book contains exercises and worked out examples throughout

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:Digital holography is an emerging field of new paradigm in general imaging applications. By replacing the photochemical procedures with electronic imaging and having a direct numerical access to the complex optical field, a widerange of new imaging c apabilities become available, many of them difficult or infeasible in conventional holography. An increasing number of researchersnot only in optical physics and optical engineering, but also in diverseapplications areas such as microbiology, medicine, ma rine science, particle analysis, microelectromechanics, and metrologyare realizing and exploiting the new capabilities of digital holography. Digital Holographic Microscopy:Principles, Techniques, and Applications, by Dr. Myung K. Kim, is intended to prov ide a brief but consistent introduction to the principles of digital holography as well as to give an organized overview of the large number oftechniques and applications being developed. This will also shed some light on the range of possibilities for fu rther developments. As such, the intended readers are the students and new researchers interested in developing newtechniques and exploring new applications of digital holography. Numerous simulation examples and carefully designed diagrams help one to se e the essential elements of the variety of techniques and applications. Reference listsaregiven at the end of each chapter to make the search for relevant materials somewhat easier

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:From Fossils to Astrobiology reviews developments in paleontology and geobiology that relate to the rapidly-developing field of Astrobiology, the study of life in the Universe. Many traditional areas of scientific study,including astronomy, chemistry and planetary science, contribute to Astrobiology, but the study of the record of life on planet Earth is critical in guiding investigations in the rest of the cosmos. In this varied book, expertscientists from 15 countries present peer-reviewed, stimula ting reviews of paleontological and astrobiological studies. The overviews of established and emerging techniques for studying modern and ancient microorganisms on Earth andbeyond, will be valuable guides to evaluating biosignatures which could be found i n the extraterrestrial surface or subsurface within the Solar System and beyond. This volume also provides discussion on the controversial reports ofnanobacteria in the Martian meteorite ALH84001. It is a unique volume among Astrobiology monographs in foc using on fossil evidence from the geological record and will be valuable to students and researchers alike

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book demonstrates the applications of synchrotron radiation in certain aspects of cell microbiology, specifically non-destructive elemental analyses, chemical-state analyses and imaging (distribution) of the elements within acell. The basics for understanding and applications of synchrotron radiation are also described to make the contents easier to be understood for a wide group of researchers in medical and biological sciences who might not be familiarwith the physics of synchrotron radiation. The two main techniques that are discussed in this book are the x-ray fluorescence spectroscopy (XRF) and the x-ray fine structure analysis (XAFS). Application of these techniques ininvestigations of several important scientific fields, such as neurodege neration and other diseases related to cell malfunctioning, are demonstrated in this book
