Title: | Essays on the Frontiers of Modern Astrophysics and Cosmology [electronic resource] |
Author(s): |
Santhosh Mathew |
Date: | 2014 |
Publisher: | Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | This book is a collection of engaging and intriguing essays that describe an intellectual journey from the beginning to the end of universe. It is the product of an ongoing effort to know our place in the universe and share withreaders the underpinni ngs of the magnificent cosmos where we are given a chance to exist only very briefly. The essays incorporate a group of challenging ideas that modern physics and cosmology are struggling to understand, in a uniqueway that incorporates mythological, religi ous, and philosophical perspectives. The author relies on a simple and powerful philosophy that we are part of the universe and the universe is part of us. This wonderful collection ofessays provides a journey through the current frontiers of modern astr ophysics and cosmology. Its depiction of the most important unsolved mysteries about our place in the Universe is peppered with original insights and philosophicalperspectives, making it an intellectual treat. Avi Loeb, Professor, Harvard University Chai r, Astronomy Department Director, Institute for Theory and Computation In these essays, Santhosh Mathew combines an impressive knowledgeof physics with an eye to its connection to Eastern philosophy as well as its relevance to our life in modern times. I n his thoughtful investigation of natural phenomena and their relationship to universal philosophical truths, hetakes up where The Tao of Physics leaves off. You may well find his keen curiosity about the natural world and our place in it infectious. Car ole Bugge (C. E. Lawrence), author of Strings In this informative assemblage ofengaging essays Santhosh Mathew takes the reader on a deeply human quest for truth, a truly inspiring journey that boldly addresses the big questions of what the Universe is, how it came into being, and where it may be heading. Thisexciting adventure is as much a rich scientific history of elegant physics, mathematics, and cosmology as it is a philosophical and |

Note: | The spectacular success of the scientific enterprise over the last four hundred years has led to the promise of an all encompassing vision of the natural world. In this elegant picture, everything we observe is based upon just afew fundamental proces ses and entities. The almost infinite variety and complexity of the world is thus the product of emergence. But the concept of emergence is fraught with controversy and confusion. This book ponders the question ofhow emergence should be understood within the scientific picture, and whether a complete vision of the world can be attained that includes consciousness |

Note: | Springer 2013 e-book collections |
Note: | This book describes the life and work of Henri Poincar, detailing most of his unique achievements in mathematics and physics. It is divided into two partsthe first on Poincars life, and the second on his contributionsto the mathematical sciences. Apa rt from biographical details, attention is given to Poincars results on automorphic functions differential equations and dynamical systems celestial mechanics mathematical physics, in particularthe theory of the electron and relativity and topology (analy sis situs). A chapter on philosophy explains Poincars conventionalism in mathematics and his view of conventionalism in physics. The book shows how Poincar reachedhis fundamentally new results in many different fields, how he thought about problems, and h ow one should read his work. Simultaneously, it is made clear how analysis and geometry are intertwined in Poincars thinking and work. Indynamical systems, this becomes clear in his description of invariant manifolds, his association of differential equat ion flow with mappings, and his fixed-point theory. There is no comparable book on Poincar presenting such arelatively complete vision of his life and the working of his very original mind. Scientists and engineers as well as general readers interested in the history of science will find this book of interest. Reviews of this book:Thetitle of this biography is particularly well chosen : Henri Poincar was a true genius, and he was impatient. It gives a fair picture of both the man and the scientist, comple ted by particularly well chosen illustrations. Jean Mawhin,Universit Catholique de Louvain, Belgium Ferdinand Verhulst has written a true scientific biography, introducing Poincar the man, his cultural milieu, and his mathematics. This book shows why, a c entury after his death,Poincar's ideas still shape a substantial part of the mathematical sciences. Philip J Holmes, Princeton University, USA |

Note: | Springer 2013 e-book collections |
Note: | This book comprises five parts. The first three contain ten historical essays on important topics: number theory, calculus/analysis, and proof, respectively. Part four deals with several historically oriented courses, and Partfive provides biographie s of five mathematicians who played major roles in the historical events described in the first four parts of the work. Each of the first three partson number theory, calculus/analysis, and proofbeginswith a survey of the respective subject and is followe d in more depth by specialized themes. Among the specialized themes are: Fermat as the founder of modern number theory, Fermats Last Theorem from Fermat to Wiles, the historyof the function concept, paradoxes, the principle of continuity, and an historica l perspective on recent debates about proof. The fourth part contains essays describing mathematics courses inspired by history. The essays deal withnumbers as a source of ideas in teaching, with famous problems, and with the stories behind various great quotations. The last part gives an account of five mathematiciansDedekind, Euler, Gauss, Hilbert, and Weierstrasswhoselives and work we hope readers will find inspiring. Key features of the work include: * A preface describing in some detail the author's ideas on teaching mathematics courses, in particular, the role of history in such courses *Explicit comments and suggestions for teachers on how history can affect the teaching of mathematics * A description of a course in the history of mathematics taugh t in an In-Service Master's Program for high school teachers *Inclusion of issues in the philosophy of mathematics * An extensive list of relevant references at the end of each chapter. Excursions in the History of Mathematics was written with several goa ls in mind: to arouse mathematicsteachers interest in the history of their subject to encourage mathematics teachers with at least some knowledge of the history of mathe |

Title: | The Rise and Development of the Theory of Series up to the Early 1820s [electronic resource] |

Note: | Springer 2013 e-book collections |
Note: | The theory of series in the 17th and 18th centuries poses several interesting problems to historians. Most of the results derived from this time were derived using methods which would be found unacceptable today, and as a result,when one looks back t o the theory of series prior to Cauchy without reconstructing internal motivations and the conceptual background, it appears as a corpus of manipulative techniques lacking in rigor whose results seem to be thepuzzling fruit of the mind of a magician or di viner rather than the penetrating and complex work of great mathematicians. This monograph not only describes the entire complex of 17th and 18th century procedures and results concerningseries, but it also reconstructs the implicit and explicit principle s upon which they are based, draws attention to the underlying philosophy, highlights competing approaches, and investigates the mathematical context where the theoryoriginated. The aim here is to improve the understanding of the framework of 17th and 18t h century mathematics and avoid trivializing the complexity of historical development by bringing it into line with modern concepts and views andby tacitly assuming that certain results belong, in some sense, to a unified theory that has come down to us t oday. Giovanni Ferraro is Professor of Mathematics and History of Mathematics at University of Molise |

Note: | This monograph tells the story of a philosophy of J-P. Serre and his vision of relating that philosophy to problems in affine algebraic geometry. It gives a lucid presentation of the Quillen-Suslin theorem settling Serre'sconjecture. The central topi c of the book is the question of whether a curve in $n$-space is as a set an intersection of $(n-1)$ hypersurfaces, depicted by the central theorems of Ferrand, Szpiro, Cowsik-Nori, Mohan Kumar, Boratnski.The book gives a comprehensive introduction to bas ic commutative algebra, together with the related methods from homological algebra, which will enable students who know only the fundamentals of algebra to enjoy the power of usingthese tools. At the same time, it also serves as a valuable reference for t he research specialist and as potential course material, because the authors present, for the first time in book form, an approach here that is an intermix ofclassical algebraic K-theory and complete intersection techniques, making connections with the fa mous results of Forster-Swan and Eisenbud-Evans. A study of projective modules and their connections with topological vector bundles in aform due to Vaserstein is included. Important subsidiary results appear in the copious exercises. Even this advanced m aterial, presented comprehensively, keeps in mind the young student as potential reader besides the specialists ofthe subject |

Note: | Even though mathematics and physics have been related for centuries and this relation appears to be unproblematic, there are many questions still open: Is mathematics really necessary for physics, or could physics exist withoutmathematics? Should we think physically and then add the mathematics apt to formalise our physical intuition, or should we think mathematically and then interpret physically the obtained results? Do we get mathematical objects byabstraction from real objects, or vice versa? Why is mathematics effective into physics? These are all relevant questions, whose answers are necessary to fully understand the status of physics, particularly of contemporary physics. Theaim of this book is to offer plausible answers to such questions thro ugh both historical analyses of relevant cases, and philosophical analyses of the relations between mathematics and physics |
