Jean Grosjean
Date:2014
Edition:2nd ed. 2014
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This textbook offers an accessible and highly approved approach which is characterized by the combination of the textbook with a detailed study guide available online at our repository extras.springer.com. This study guide dividesthe whole learning t ask into small units which the student is very likely to master successfully. Thus he or she is asked to read and study a limited section of the textbook and to return to the study guide afterwards. Working with thestudy guide his or her learning results are controlled, monitored and deepened by graded questions, exercises, repetitions and finally by problems and applications of the content studied. Since the degree of difficulties is slowlyrising the students gain confidence and experience their own prog ress in mathematical competence thus fostering motivation. Furthermore in case of learning difficulties he or she is given supplementary explanations and in case ofindividual needs supplementary exercises and applications. So the sequence of the studies i s individualized according to the individual performance and needs and can be regarded as full tutorial course. The study guide satisfies twoobjectives simultaneously: firstly it enables students to make effective use of the textbook and secondly it offer s advice on the improvement of study skills. Empirical studies have shown that the student's competence for using writteninformation has improved significantly by using this study guide. The new edition includes a new chapter on Fourier integrals and Four ier transforms, numerous sections had been updated, 30 new problems with solutions had been added.The interactive study guide has seen a substantial update

Title:Cardinal Invariants on Boolean Algebras [electronic resource] : Second Revised Edition
Author(s): J. Donald Monk
Date:2014
Edition:2nd ed. 2014
Publisher:Basel : Springer Basel : Imprint: Birkhuser
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book is concerned with cardinal number valued functions defined for any Boolean algebra. Examples of such functions are independence, which assigns to each Boolean algebra the supremum of the cardinalities of its freesubalgebras, and cellularity , which gives the supremum of cardinalities of sets of pairwise disjoint elements. Twenty-one such functions are studied in detail, and many more in passing. The questions considered are the behaviour ofthese functions under algebraic operations such as p roducts, free products, ultraproducts, and their relationships to one another. Assuming familiarity with only the basics of Boolean algebras and set theory, through simple infinitecombinatorics and forcing, the book reviews current knowledge about these f unctions, giving complete proofs for most facts. A special feature of the book is the attention given to open problems, of which 185 are formulated. Based onCardinal Functions on Boolean Algebras (1990) and Cardinal Invariants on Boolean Algebras (1996) b y the same author, the present work is much larger than either of these. It contains solutions to many of the open problems of theearlier volumes. Among the new topics are continuum cardinals on Boolean algebras, with a lengthy treatment of the reaping nu mber. Diagrams at the end of the book summarize the relationships between the functions for many importantclasses of Boolean algebras, including interval algebras, tree algebras and superatomic algebras

Title:The Compressed Word Problem for Groups [electronic resource]
Author(s): Markus Lohrey
Date:2014
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:The Compressed Word Problem for Groups provides a detailed exposition of known results on the compressed word problem, emphasizing efficient algorithms for the compressed word problem in various groups.The authorpresents thenecessary background along with the most recent results on the compressed word problem to create a cohesive self-contained book accessible to computer scientists as well as mathematicians. Readers will quickly reach the frontierofcurrent research which makes the book especially ap pealing for students looking for a currently active research topic at theintersection of group theory and computer science. The word problem introduced in 1910 by Max Dehnisone of the most important decision problems in group theory. For many groups, high ly efficient algorithms for the word problem exist. In recent years, a new technique based on data compression for providing more efficient algorithmsfor word problems, has been developed, by representing long words over group generators in a compressed f orm using a straight-line program. Algorithmic techniques used for manipulating compressed words has shown that the compressedword problem can be solved in polynomial time for a large class of groups such as free groups, graph groups and nilpotent groups. These results have important implications for algorithmic questions related to automorphism groups

Title:On the Estimation of Multiple Random Integrals and U-Statistics [electronic resource]

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This work starts with the study of those limit theorems in probability theory for which classical methods do not work. In many cases some form of linearization can help to solve the problem, because the linearized version issimpler. But in order to a pply such a method we have to show that the linearization causes a negligible error. The estimation of this error leads to some important large deviation type problems, and the main subject of this work istheir investigation. We provide sharp estimates of the tail distribution of multiple integrals with respect to a normalized empirical measure and so-called degenerate U-statistics and also of the supremum of appropriate classes of suchquantities. The proofs apply a number of useful techniques of modern p robability that enable us to investigate the non-linear functionals of independent random variables. This lecture note yields insights into these methods, and mayalso be useful for those who only want some new tools to help them prove limit theorems when standard methods are not a viable option

Title:Regular Functions of a Quaternionic Variable [electronic resource]

Note:The theory of slice regular functions over quaternions is the central subject of the present volume. This recent theory has expanded rapidly, producing a variety of new results that have caught the attention of the internationalresearch community. At the same time, the theory has already developed sturdy foundations. The richness of the theory of the holomorphic functions of one complex variable and its wide variety of applications are a strong motivation forthe study of its analogs in higher dimensi ons. In this respect, the four-dimensional case is particularly interesting due to its relevance in physics and its algebraic properties, as the quaternion forms the only associative realdivision algebra with a finite dimension n>2. Among other interestin g function theories introduced in the quaternionic setting, that of (slice) regular functions shows particularly appealing features. For instance, this class offunctions naturally includes polynomials and power series. The zero set of a slice regular func tion has an interesting structure, strictly linked to a multiplicative operation, and it allows the study of singularities. Integralrepresentation formulas enrich the theory and they are a fundamental tool for one of the applications, the construction of a noncommutative functional calculus. The volume presents a state-of-the-art survey of the theory and a briefoverview of its generalizations and applications. It is intended for graduate students and researchers in complex or hypercomplex analysis and geo metry, function theory, and functional analysis in general

Note:This book is mainly devoted to finite difference numerical methods for solving partial differential equation (PDE) models of pricing a wide variety of financial derivative securities. With this objective, the book is divided intotwo main parts. In th e first part, after an introduction concerning the basics on derivative securities, the authors explain how to establish the adequate PDE initial/initial-boundary value problems for different sets of derivativeproducts (vanilla and exotic options, and int erest rate derivatives). For many option problems, the analytic solutions are also derived with details.The second part is devoted to explaining and analyzing the application of finitedifferences techniques to the financial models stated in the first part of the book. For this, the authors recall some basics on finite difference methods, initial boundary value problems, and (having in view financial products withearly exercise feature) linear complementarity and free boundary problems. In each chapter, th e techniques related to these mathematical and numerical subjects are applied to a wide variety of financial products. This is a textbook forgraduate students following a mathematical finance program as well as a valuable reference for those researchers w orking in numerical methodsof financial derivatives. For this new edition, the book has been updated throughout withmany new problems added. More details about numerical methods for some options, for example, Asian options with discrete sampling, are prov ided and the proof of solution-uniqueness of derivative security problems and the completestability analysis of numerical methods for two-dimensional problems are added. Review of first edition: the book is highly well designed and structured as a textboo k for graduate students following a mathematical financeprogram, which includes Black-Scholes dynamic hedging methodology to price financial derivatives.

Note:Babylonian Mathematical Astronomy: Procedure Texts contains a new analysis of the procedure texts of Babylonian mathematical astronomy. These cuneiform tablets, excavated in Babylon and Uruk and dating from 35050 BCE, containcomputational instruction s that represent the earliest known form of mathematical astronomy of the ancient world. The targeted readership includes assyriologists, historians of science, astronomers and others with an interest inBabylonian astronomy. The book includes new translat ions of all 108 available tablets that are based on a modern approach incorporating recent insights from assyriology and translation science. All translations are accompanied bycommentaries and photographs of the tablets. The preceding chapters are devote d to documentary, lexical, semantic, mathematical and astronomical aspects of the procedure texts. Special attention is given to issues of mathematicalrepresentation, a topic that had previously been largely ignored. Mathematical concepts are presented in a didactic fashion, setting out from the most elementary ones (numbers and elementary operations) to more complex ones (algorithmsand computational systems). Chapters devoted to the planets and the Moon contain updated and expanded reconstructions and as tronomical interpretations of the algorithms. The author intends to continue his study of Babylonianmathematical astronomy with a new publication devoted to the Tabular Textsthe end products of Babylonian mathematical astronomy, computed with algorithms t hat are formulated in the present volume. The upcoming volume will containnew editions and reconstructions of over 250 tabular texts and a new philological, astronomical, and mathematical analysis of these texts

Title:A Polynomial Approach to Linear Algebra [electronic resource]

Note:A Polynomial Approach to Linear Algebra is a text which is heavily biased towards functional methods. In using the shift operator as a central object, it makes linear algebra a perfect introduction to other areas of mathematics,operator theory in par ticular. This technique is very powerful as becomes clear from the analysis of canonical forms (Frobenius, Jordan). It should be emphasized that these functional methods are not only of great theoretical interest,but lead to computational algorithms. Quad ratic forms are treated from the same perspective, with emphasis on the important examples of Bezoutian and Hankel forms. These topics are of great importance in applied areas such as signalprocessing, numerical linear algebra, and control theory. Stabili ty theory and system theoretic concepts, up to realization theory, are treated as an integral part of linear algebra. This new edition has been updated throughout, inparticular new sections have been added on rational interpolation, interpolation using H^ {\nfty} functions, and tensor products of models. Review from first edition: the approach pursued by the author is of unconventionalbeauty and the material covered by the book is unique. (Mathematical Reviews, A. Bttcher)

Title:Lattice Theory: Foundation [electronic resource]
Author(s): George Grtzer
Date:2011
Publisher:Basel : Springer Basel
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book started with Lattice Theory, First Concepts, in 1971. Then came General Lattice Theory, First Edition, in 1978, and the Second Edition twenty years later. Since the publication of the first edition in 1978, GeneralLattice Theory has become the authoritative introduction to lattice theory for graduate students and the standard reference for researchers. The First Edition set out to introduce and survey lattice theory. Some 12,000 papers have beenpublished in the field since then so Lattice T heory: Foundation focuses on introducing the field, laying the foundation for special topics and applications. Lattice Theory: Foundation, based on the previous three books, covers thefundamental concepts and results. The main topics are distributivity, c ongruences, constructions, modularity and semimodularity, varieties, and free products. The chapter on constructions is new, all the other chapters are revised andexpanded versions from the earlier volumes. Over 40 diamond sections, many written by leadin g specialists in these fields, provide a brief glimpse into special topics beyond the basics. Lattice theory has come a long way...For those who appreciate lattice theory, or who are curious about its techniques and intriguing internal problems, Professor Grtzer's lucid new book provides a most valuable guide to many recent developments. Even a cursory readingshould provide those few who may still believe that lattice theory is superficial or naive, with convincing evidence of its technical depth and soph istication. Garrett Birkhoff (Bulletin of the American Mathematical Society)Grtzers book General Lattice Theory has become the lattice theorists bible. (Mathematical Reviews)

Title:Probability Measures on Semigroups [electronic resource] : Convolution Products, Random Walks and Random Matrices
Author(s): Gran Hgns
Arunava Mukherjea
Date:2011
Edition:2
Publisher:Boston, MA : Springer US
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Semigroups are very general structures and scientists often come across them in various contexts in science and engineering. In this second edition of Probability Measures on Semigroups, first published in the University Seriesin Mathematics in 1996, the authors present the theory of weak convergence of convolution products of probability measures on semigroups, the theory of random walks on semigroups, and their applications to products of random matrices.They examine the essentials of abstract semi group theory and its application to concrete semigroups of matrices. They present results on weak convergence, random walks, random matrices using semigroup ideas that for the most part arecomplete and best possible. Still, as the authors point out, there are other results that remain to be completed. These are all mentioned in the notes and comments at the end of each chapter, and will keep the readership of this bookenthusiastic and interested for some time to come. Apart from corrections of several err ors, new results have been added in the main text and in the appendices the references, all notes and comments at the end of each chapter havebeen updated, and exercises have been added. This volume is suitable for a one semester course on semigroups and it could be used as a main text or supplementary material for courses focusing on probability on algebraic structures orweak convergence. It is ideally suited to graduate students in mathematics, and in other fields such as engineering and sciences with a n interest in probability. Students in statistics using advance probability will also find ituseful. 'A well-written book...This is elegant mathematics, motivated by examples and presented in an accessible way that engages the reader.' International Stati stics Institute, December 1996 'This beautiful book...guides the readerthrough the most important developments...a valuable addition to the library of the probabilist, and a must for anybody interested

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This volume collects recent works on weakly dependent, long-memory and multifractal processes and introduces new dependence measures for studying complex stochastic systems. Other topics include the statistical theory forbootstrap and permutation sta tistics for infinite variance processes, the dependence structure of max-stable processes, and the statistical properties of spectral estimators of the long memory parameter. The asymptotic behavior ofFejr graph integrals and their use for proving central limit theorems for tapered estimators are investigated. New multifractal processes are introduced and their multifractal properties analyzed. Wavelet-based methods are used tostudy multifractal processes with different multiresolution quantities, and to detect changes in the variance of random processes. Linear regression models with long-range dependent errors are studied, as is the issue of detectingchanges in their parameters

Title:Substitution Dynamical Systems - Spectral Analysis [electronic resource]
Author(s): Martine Quefflec
Date:2010
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This volume mainly deals with the dynamics of finitely valued sequences, and more specifically, of sequences generated by substitutions and automata. Those sequences demonstrate fairly simple combinatorical and arithmeticalproperties and naturally ap pear in various domains. As the title suggests, the aim of the initial version of this book was the spectral study of the associated dynamical systems: the first chapters consisted in a detailed introductionto the mathematical notions involved, and the de scription of the spectral invariants followed in the closing chapters. This approach, combined with new material added to the new edition, results in a nearly self-contained book on thesubject. New tools - which have also proven helpful in other contexts - had to be developed for this study. Moreover, its findings can be concretely applied, the method providing an algorithm to exhibit the spectral measures and thespectral multiplicity, as is demonstrated in several examples. Beyond this advanced analysis, many readers will benefit from the introductory chapters on the spectral theory of dynamical systems others will find complements on thespectral study of bounded sequences finally, a very basic presentation of substitutions, together with some recent fin dings and questions, rounds out the book

Title:Simplicial Methods for Operads and Algebraic Geometry [electronic resource]
Author(s): Ieke Moerdijk
Bertrand Ton
Date:2010
Publisher:Basel : Springer Basel
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book is an introduction to two higher-categorical topics in algebraic topology and algebraic geometry relying on simplicial methods. Moerdijks lectures offer a detailed introduction to dendroidal sets, which wereintroduced by himself and Weiss a s a foundation for the homotopy theory of operads. The theory of dendroidal sets is based on trees instead of linear orders and has many features analogous to the theory of simplicial sets, but it alsoreveals new phenomena. For example, dendroidal sets ad mit a closed symmetric monoidal structure related to the BoardmanVogt tensor product of operads. The lecture notes start with the combinatorics of trees and culminate with asuitable model structure on the category of dendroidal sets. Important concepts ar e illustrated with pictures and examples. The lecture series by Ton presents derived algebraic geometry. While classical algebraic geometry studiesfunctors from the category of commutative rings to the category of sets, derived algebraic geometry is conce rned with functors from simplicial commutative rings (to allow derived tensor products) to simplicial sets (to allow derivedquotients). The central objects are derived (higher) stacks, which are functors satisfying a certain up-to-homotopy descent conditi on. These lectures provide a concise and focused introduction to this vast subject, glossing over manyof the technicalities that make the subjects research literature so overwhelming. Both sets of lectures assume a working knowledge of model categories in the sense of Quillen. For Tons lectures, some background in algebraicgeometry is also necessary

Title:Mathematica: A Problem-Centered Approach [electronic resource]
Author(s): Roozbeh Hazrat
Date:2010
Publisher:London : Springer London
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Mathematica: A Problem-Centered Approach introduces the vast array of features and powerful mathematical functions of Mathematica using a multitude of clearly presented examples and worked- out problems. Each section startswith a description of a new topic and some basic examples. The author then demonstrates the use of new commands through three categories of problems - the first category highlights those essential parts of the text that demonstrate theuse of new commands in Mathematica whilst solvi ng each problem presented - the second comprises problems that further demonstrate the use of commands previously introduced to tackle different situations and - the third presents morechallenging problems for further study. The intention is to enable the reader to learn from the codes, thus avoiding long and exhausting explanations. While based on a computer algebra course taught to undergraduate students ofmathematics, science, engineering and finance, the book also includes chapters on calculus and sol ving equations, and graphics, thus covering all the basic topics in Mathematica. With its strong focus upon programming and problemsolving, and an emphasis on using numerical problems that do not need any particular background in mathematics, this book is also ideal for self-study and as an introduction to researchers who wish to use Mathematica as a computationaltool. Mathematica: A Problem-Centered Approach comes with a free 30 day trial of the Wolfram Mathematica(R) software

Allan P Donsig
Date:2010
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This new approach to real analysis stresses the use of the subject in applications, showing how the principles and theory of real analysis can be applied in various settings. Applications cover approximation by polynomials,discrete dynamical systems, differential equations, Fourier series and physics, Fourier series and approximation, wavelets, and convexity and optimization. Each chapter has many useful exercises. The treatment of the basic theorycovers the real numbers, functions, and calculus, whi le emphasizing the role of normed vector spaces, and particularly of Rn. The applied chapters are mostly independent, giving the reader a choice of topics. This book is appropriatefor students with a prior knowledge of both calculus and linear algebra who want a careful development of both analysis and its use in applications. Review of the previous version of this book, Real Analysis with Real Applications: Awell balanced book! The first solid analysis course, with proofs, is central in the offerings of any math.-dept. ---and yet, the new books that hit the market don't always hit the mark: the balance between theory and applications,---between technical proofs and intuitive ideas, ---between classical and modern subjects, and between real life exercises vs. the ones that drill a new concept.

Note:The first edition of Stochastic Partial Differential Equations: A Modeling, White Noise Functional Approach, gave a comprehensive introduction to SPDEs driven by space-time Brownian motion noise. In this, the second edition, theauthors extend the the ory to include SPDEs driven by space-time Lvy process noise, and introduce new applications of the field. Because the authors allow the noise to be in both space and time, the solutions to SPDEs are usually ofthe distribution type, rather than a classical random field. To make this study rigorous and as general as possible, the discussion of SPDEs is therefore placed in the context of Hida white noise theory. The key connection betweenwhite noise theory and SPDEs is that integration with respect to Browni an random fields can be expressed as integration with respect to the Lebesgue measure of the Wick product of the integrand with Brownian white noise, and similarlywith Lvy processes. The first part of the book deals with the classical Brownian motion case . The second extends it to the Lvy white noise case. For SPDEs of the Wick type, a general solution method is given by means of the Hermitetransform, which turns a given SPDE into a parameterized family of deterministic PDEs. Applications of this theory a re emphasized throughout. The stochastic pressure equation for fluid flow in porous media is treated, as areapplications to finance. Graduate students in pure and applied mathematics as well as researchers in SPDEs, physics, and engineering will find this introduction indispensible. Useful exercises are collected at the end of each chapter.From the reviews of the first edition: The authors have made significant contributions to each of the areas. As a whole, the book is well organized and very carefully w ritten and the details of the proofs are basically spelled out...This is a rich and demanding book It will be of great value for students of probability theory or SPDEs with an interest in the

Author(s): Benoit Fresse
Date:2009
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The notion of an operad supplies both a conceptual and effective device to handle a variety of algebraic structures in various situations. Operads were introduced 40 years ago in algebraic topology in order to model the structureof iterated loop spac es. Since then, operads have been used fruitfully in many fields of mathematics and physics. This monograph begins with a review of the basis of operad theory. The main purpose is to study structures of modulesover operads as a new device to model functor s between categories of algebras as effectively as operads model categories of algebras

Note:Introduction to Siegel Modular Forms and Dirichlet Series gives a concise and self-contained introduction to the multiplicative theory of Siegel modular forms, Hecke operators, and zeta functions, including the classical case ofmodular forms in one v ariable. It serves to attract young researchers to this beautiful field and makes the initial steps more pleasant. It treats a number of questions that are rarely mentioned in other books. It is the first and onlybook so far on Siegel modular forms that i ntroduces such important topics as analytic continuation and the functional equation of spinor zeta functions of Siegel modular forms of genus two. Unique features include: * New, simplifiedapproaches and a fresh outlook on classical problems * The abstra ct theory of HeckeShimura rings for symplectic and related groups * The action of Hecke operators on Siegel modular forms * Applications of Hecke operators to astudy of the multiplicative properties of Fourier coefficients of modular forms * The proof of analytic continuation and the functional equation (under certain assumptions) for Euler products associated with modular forms of genus two*Numerous exercises Anatoli Andrianov is a leading researcher at the St. Petersburg branch of the Steklov Mathematic al Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences.

Note:Recent years have witnessed a growing importance of quantitative methods in both financial research and industry. This development requires the use of advanced techniques on a theoretical and applied level, especially when itcomes to the quantificati on of risk and the valuation of modern financial products. Applied Quantitative Finance (2nd edition) provides a comprehensive and state-of-the-art treatment of cutting-edge topics and methods. It providessolutions to and presents theoretical developments in many practical problems such as risk management, pricing of credit derivatives, quantification of volatility and copula modelling. The synthesis of theory and practice supported bycomputational tools is reflected in the selection of topics as well as in a finely tuned balance of scientific contributions on practical implementation and theoretical concepts. This linkage between theory and practice offerstheoreticians insights into considerations of applicability and, vice versa, provides practitioners comfortable access to new techniques in quantitative finance. Themes that are dominant in current research and which are presented inthis book include among others the valuation of Collaterized Debt Obligations (CDOs), the high-frequency analysis of marke t liquidity, the pricing of Bermuda options and realized volatility. All Quantlets for the calculation of thegiven examples are downloadable from the Springer web pages

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Every process in physics is governed by selection rules that are the consequence of symmetry requirements. The beauty and strength of group theory resides in the transformation of many complex symmetry operations into a verysimple linear algebra. Thi s concise and class-tested book has been pedagogically tailored over 30 years MIT and 2 years at the University Federal of Minas Gerais (UFMG) in Brazil. The approach centers on the conviction that teachinggroup theory in close connection with application s helps students to learn, understand and use it for their own needs. For this reason, the theoretical background is confined to the first 4 introductory chapters (6-8 classroom hours).From there, each chapter develops new theory while introducing applica tions so that the students can best retain new concepts, build on concepts learned the previous week, and see interrelations between topics as presented. Essentialproblem sets between the chapters also aid the retention of the new material and for the con solidation of material learned in previous chapters. The text and problem sets have proved a useful springboard for the application of thebasic material presented here to topics in semiconductor physics, and the physics of carbon-based nanostructures

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The present textbook is a lively, problem-oriented and carefully written introduction to classical modern algebra. The author leads the reader through interesting subject matter, while assuming only the background provided by afirst course in linear algebra. The first volume focuses on field extensions. Galois theory and its applications are treated more thoroughly than in most texts. It also covers basic applications to number theory, ring extensions andalgebraic geometry. The main focus of the seco nd volume is on additional structure of fields and related topics. Much material not usually covered in textbooks appears here, including real fields and quadratic forms, the Tsen rank of afield, the calculus of Witt vectors, the Schur group of a field, a nd local class field theory. Both volumes contain numerous exercises and can be used as a textbook for advanced undergraduate students. From Reviews of the Germanversion: This is a charming textbook, introducing the reader to the classical parts of algebr a. The exposition is admirably clear and lucidly written with only minimal prerequisites from linear algebra. The new concepts are, at leastin the first part of the book, defined in the framework of the development of carefully selected problems. - Stefan Porubsky, Mathematical Reviews

Note:Emulsions are generally made out of two immiscible fluids like oil and water, one being dispersed in the second in the presence of surface-active compounds.They are used as intermediate or end products in a huge range of areasincluding the food, chem ical, cosmetic, pharmaceutical, paint, and coating industries. Besides the broad domain of technological interest, emulsions are raising a variety of fundamental questions at the frontier between physics andchemistry. This book aims to give an overview of the most recent advances in emulsion science. The basic principles, covering aspects of emulsions from their preparation to their destruction, are presented in close relation to both thefundamental physics and the applications of these materials. The boo k is intended to help scientists and engineers in formulating new materials by giving them the basics of emulsion science

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book is dedicated to relatively recent results in linear algebra with indefinite inner product. It also includes applications to differential and difference equations with symmetries, matrix polynomials and Riccati equations.These applications h ave been developed in the last fifty years, and all of them are based on linear algebra in spaces with indefinite inner product. The latter forms a new more or less independent branch of linear algebra and we gaveit the name of indefinite linear algebra. This new subject in linear algebra is presented following the lines and principles of a standard linear algebra course. This book has the structure of a graduate text in which chapters ofadvanced linear algebra form the core. This together with the many s ignificant applications and accessible style will make it widely useful for engineers, scientists and mathematicians alike

Title:Life As a Matter of Fat [electronic resource] : The Emerging Science of Lipidomics

Date:2005
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:LIFE - as a Matter of Fat Lipidomics is the science of the fats called lipids. Lipids are as important for life as proteins, sugars, and genes. The present book gives a multi-disciplinary perspective on the physics of life and theparticular role play ed by lipids and the lipid-bilayer component of cell membranes. The book is aimed at undergraduate students and young research workers within physics, chemistry, biochemistry, molecular biology, nutrition, as wellas pharmaceutical and biomedical sciences. The emphasis is on the physical properties of lipid membranes seen as soft and molecularly structured interfaces. By combining and synthesizing insights obtained from a variety of recentstudies, an attempt is made to clarify what membrane structure is an d how it can be quantitatively described. Furthermore, it is shown how biological function mediated by membranes is controlled by lipid membrane structure andorganization on length scales ranging from the size of the individual molecule, across molecular assemblies of proteins and lipid domains in the range of nanometers, to the size of whole cells. Applications of lipids in nano-technologyand biomedicine are also described. The Emerging Science of Lipidomics We have just witnessed a scientific revolution at the end of the 20th century that took us through the genomics era with a focus on sequencing genes and mappinggene products. We are now in the middle of the proteomics era where the multitude of proteins that are encoded in the genes are identified an d their functions are unveiled. In front of us we have a new era recognizing the role oflipids. The science of lipidomics is emerging. Lipidomics involves a quantitative experimental and theoretical study of, e.g. lipid and membrane self-assembly, lipid-p rotein interactions, lipid-gene interactions, and the biophysicalproperties of lipid structure, function, and dynamics

Edition:Second Edition
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This is a graduate textbook covering an especially broad range of topics. The first part of the book contains a careful but rapid discussion of the basics of linear algebra, including vector spaces, linear transformations,quotient spaces, and isomorp hism theorems. The author then proceeds to modules, emphasizing a comparison with vector spaces. A thorough discussion of inner product spaces, eigenvalues, eigenvectors, and finite dimensional spectraltheory follows, culminating in the finite dimensional spectral theorem for normal operators. The second part of the book is a collection of topics, including metric vector spaces, metric spaces, Hilbert spaces, tensor products, andaffine geometry. The last chapter discusses the umbral calculus, an area of m odern algebra with many important applications. The new edition has been thoroughly rewritten, both in the text and exercise sets, and contains new chapterson convexity and separation, positive solutions to linear systems, singular values and QR decompost ion. Treatments of tensor products and the umbral calculus have been greatly expanded and discussions of determinants, complexificationof a real vector space, Schur's lemma and Gersgorin disks have been added. The author is Emeritus Professor of Mathemati cs, having taught at a number of universities, including MIT, UC Santa Barabara, the University of South Florida,the California State University at Fullerton and UC Irvine. He has written 27 books in mathematics at various levels and 9 books on computing. His interests lie mostly in the areas of algebra, set theory and logic, probability andfinance

Title:Linearity, Symmetry, and Prediction in the Hydrogen Atom [electronic resource]
Author(s): Stephanie Frank Singer
Date:2005
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The predictive power of mathematics in quantum phenomena is one of the great intellectual successes of the 20th century. This textbook, aimed at undergraduate or graduate level students (depending on the college or university),concentrates on how to make predictions about the numbers of each kind of basic state of a quantum system from only two ingredients: the symmetry and the linear model of quantum mechanics. This method, involving the mathematical areaof representation theory or group theory, com bines three core mathematical subjects, namely, linear algebra, analysis and abstract algebra. Wide applications of this method occur in crystallography, atomic structure, classification ofmanifolds with symmetry, and other areas. The topics unfold system atically, introducing the reader first to an important example of a quantum system with symmetry, the single electron in a hydrogen atom. Then the reader is given justenough mathematical tools to make predictions about the numbers of each kind of electron ic orbital based solely on the physical spherical symmetry of the hydrogen atom. The final chapters address the related ideas of quantum spin,measurement and entanglement. This user-friendly exposition, driven by numerous examples and exercises, requires a solid background in calculus and familiarity with either linear algebra or advanced quantum mechanics. Linearity,Symmetry, and Prediction in the Hydrogen Atom will benefit students in mathematics, physics and chemistry, as well as a literate general rea dership. A separate solutions manual is available to instructors
