Title:Symmetries in Fundamental Physics [electronic resource]
Author(s): Kurt Sundermeyer
Date:2014
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Over the course of the last century it has become clear that both elementary particle physics and relativity theories are based on the notion of symmetries. These symmetries become manifest in that the laws of nature areinvariant under spacetime tran sformations and/or gauge transformations. The consequences of these symmetries were analyzed as early as in 1918 by Emmy Noether on the level of action functionals. Her work did not receive due recognitionfor nearly half a century, but can today be unders tood as a recurring theme in classical mechanics, electrodynamics and special relativity, Yang-Mills type quantum field theories, and in general relativity. As a matter of fact, asshown in this monograph, many aspects of physics can be derived solely from symmetry considerations. This substantiates the statement of E.P. Wigner ... if we knew all the laws of nature, or the ultimate Law of nature, the invarianceproperties of these laws would not furnish us new information. Thanks to Wigner we now also under stand the implications of quantum physics and symmetry considerations: Poincare invariance dictates both the characteristic propertiesof particles (mass, spin, ...) and the wave equations of spin 0, 1/2, 1, ... objects. Further, the work of C.N. Yang and R. Mills reveals the consequences of internal symmetries as exemplified in the symmetry group of elementaryparticle physics. Given this pivotal role of symmetries it is thus not surprising that current research in fundamental physics is to a great degree motivated and inspired by considerations of symmetry. The treatment of symmetries inthis monograph ranges from classical physics to now well-established theories of fundamental interactions, to the latest research on unified theories and quantum gravity

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
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:Partial Differential Equations in Action [electronic resource] : From Modelling to Theory
Author(s): Sandro Salsa
Date:2008
Publisher:Milano : Springer Milan
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book is designed as an advanced undergraduate or a first-year graduate course for students from various disciplines like applied mathematics, physics, engineering. The main purpose is on the one hand to train the students toappreciate the interp lay between theory and modelling in problems arising in the applied sciences on the other hand to give them a solid theoretical background for numerical methods, such as finite elements. Accordingly, this textbookis divided into two parts. The first one h as a rather elementary character with the goal of developing and studying basic problems from the macro-areas of diffusion, propagation and transport, waves and vibrations. Ideas andconnections with concrete aspects are emphasized whenever possible, in or der to provide intuition and feeling for the subject. For this part, a knowledge of advanced calculus and ordinary differential equations is required. Also, therepeated use of the method of separation of variables assumes some basic results from the theor y of Fourier series, which are summarized in an appendix. The main topic of the second part is the development of Hilbert space methods forthe variational formulation and analysis of linear boundary and initial-boundary value problems\emph{. }% Given the abstract nature of these chapters, an effort has been made to provide intuition and motivation for the various conceptsand results. The understanding of these topics requires some basic knowledge of Lebesgue measure and integration, summarized in another appendix. At the end of each chapter, a number of exercises at different level of complexity isincluded. The most demanding problems are supplied with answers or hints. The exposition if flexible enough to allow substantial changes without compromising th e comprehension and to facilitate a selection of topics for a one or twosemester course

Title:The Many Faces of Maxwell, Dirac and Einstein Equations [electronic resource] A Clifford Bundle Approach
Author(s): Waldyr Alves Rodrigues
Edmundo Capelas Oliveira
Date:2007
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book is a thoughtful exposition of the algebra and calculus of differential forms, the Clifford and Spin-Clifford bundles formalisms with emphasis in calculation procedures, and vistas to a formulation of some importantconcepts of differential g eometry necessary for a deep understanding of spacetime physics. The formalism discloses the hidden geometrical nature of spinor fields. Maxwell, Dirac and Einstein fields, which were originally consideredobjects of a very different mathematical nature, a re shown to have representatives as objects of the same mathematical nature, i.e. as sections of an appropriate Clifford bundle. This approach reveals unity in the diversity and alsothe many faces of the equations satisfied by those fields. Moreover, it s uggests relationships which are hidden in the standard formalisms and new paths for research. Some foundational issues of relativistic field theories, inparticular the one concerning the conditions for the existence of the conservation laws of energy-mome ntum and angular momentum in spacetime theories and many misconceptions concerning this issue is analyzed in details. The book willbe useful as reference book for researchers and advanced students of theoretical physics and mathematics. Calculation proced ures are illustrated by many exercises solved in detail, using the tricks of the trade. Furthermore thereaders will appreciate the comprehensive list of mathematical symbols as well as a list of acronyms and abbreviations
