Title:On the Device-Independent Approach to Quantum Physics [electronic resource] : Advances in Quantum Nonlocality and Multipartite Entanglement Detection
Author(s): Jean-Daniel Bancal
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Quantum physics started in the 1920's with wave mechanics and the wave-particle duality. However, the last 20 years have seen a second quantum revolution, centered around non-locality and quantum correlations between measurementoutcomes. The associat ed key property, entanglement, is recognized today as the signature of quantumness. This second revolution opened the possibility of studying quantum correlations without any assumption on the internal functioningof the measurement apparata, the so-called Device-Independent Approach to Quantum Physics. This thesis explores this new approach using the powerful geometrical tool of polytopes. Emphasis is placed on the study of non-locality inthe case of three or more parties, where it is shown that a whole new variety of phenomena appear compared to the bipartite case. Genuine multiparty entanglement is also studied for the first time within the device-independentframework.Finally, these tools are used to answer a long-standing open question: could quantum non-locality be explained by influences that propagate from one party to the others faster than light, but that remain hidden so that onecannot use them to communicate faster than light? This would provide a way around Einstein's notion of action at a dis tance that would be compatible with relativity. However, the answer is shown to be negative, as such influences couldnot remain hidden

Title:Rigidity and Symmetry [electronic resource]
Author(s): Robert Connelly
Asia Ivi Weiss
Walter Whiteley
Date:2014
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book contains recent contributions to the fields of rigidity and symmetry with two primary focuses: to present the mathematically rigorous treatment of rigidity of structures, and to explore the interaction of geometry,algebra, and combinatorics . Overall, the book shows how researchers from diverse backgrounds explore connections among the various discrete structures with symmetry as the unifying theme. Contributions present recent trends andadvances in discrete geometry, particularly in the the ory of polytopes. The rapid development of abstract polytope theory has resulted in a rich theory featuring an attractive interplay of methods and tools from discrete geometry,group theory, classical geometry, hyperbolic geometry and topology. The volume will also be a valuable source as an introduction to the ideas of both combinatorial and geometric rigidity theory and its applications, incorporating thesurprising impact of symmetry. It will appeal to students at both the advanced undergraduate and grad uate levels, as well as postdocs, structural engineers, and chemists

Note:Optimization has long been a source of both inspiration and applications for geometers, and conversely, discrete and convex geometry have provided the foundations for many optimization techniques, leading to a rich interplaybetween these subjects. Th e purpose of the Workshop on Discrete Geometry, the Conference on Discrete Geometry and Optimization, and the Workshop on Optimization, held in September 2011 at the Fields Institute, Toronto, was to furtherstimulate the interaction between geometers and optimizers. This volume reflects the interplay between these areas. The inspiring Fejes Tth Lecture Series, delivered by Thomas Hales of the University of Pittsburgh, exemplified thisapproach. While these fields have recently witnessed a lot of activity a nd successes, many questions remain open. For example, Fields medalist Stephen Smale stated that the question of the existence of a strongly polynomial timealgorithm for linear optimization is one of the most important unsolved problems at the beginning o f the 21st century. The broad range of topics covered in this volume demonstrates the many recent and fruitful connections betweendifferent approaches, and features novel results and state-of-the-art surveys as well as open problems

Note:The book demonstrates the development of integral geometry on domains of homogeneous spaces since 1990. It covers a wide range of topics, including analysis on multidimensional Euclidean domains and Riemannian symmetric spaces ofarbitrary ranks as we ll as recent work on phase space and the Heisenberg group. The book includes many significant recent results, some of them hitherto unpublished, among which can be pointed out uniqueness theorems for variousclasses of functions, far-reaching generalizatio ns of the two-radii problem, the modern versions of the Pompeiu problem, and explicit reconstruction formulae in problems of integral geometry. These results are intriguing and useful invarious fields of contemporary mathematics. The proofs given are mini mal in the sense that they involve only those concepts and facts which are indispensable for the essence of the subject. Each chapter provides a historicalperspective on the results presented and includes many interesting open problems. Readers will find this book relevant to harmonic analysis on homogeneous spaces, invariant spaces theory, integral transforms on symmetric spaces and theHeisenberg group, integral equations, special functions, and transmutation operators theory

Title:Lectures on Sphere Arrangements the Discrete Geometric Side [electronic resource]
Author(s): Kroly Bezdek
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:This monograph gives a short introduction to parts of modern discrete geometry, in addition to leading the reader to the frontiers of geometric research on sphere arrangements. The readership is aimed at advanced undergraduate andearly graduate stude nts, as well as interested researchers. It contains 30 open research problems ideal for graduate students and researchers in mathematics and computer science. Additionally, this book may be considered ideal for aone-semester advanced undergraduate or grad uate level course. The core of this book is based on three lectures given by the author at the Fields Institute during the thematic program on Discrete Geometry and Applications andcontains four basic topics. The first two deal with active areas that hav e been outstanding from the birth of discrete geometry, namely dense sphere packings and tilings. Sphere packings and tilings have a very strong connection tonumber theory, coding, groups, and mathematical programming. Extending the tradition of studying packings of spheres is the investigation of the monotonicity of volume under contractions of arbitrary arrangements of spheres. The thirdmajor topic can be found under the sections on ball-polyhedra that study the possibility of extending the theory of co nvex polytopes to the family of intersections of congruent balls. This section of the text is connected in many waysto the above-mentioned major topics as well as to some other important research areas such as that on coverings by planks (with close ties to geometric analysis). The fourth basic topic is discussed under covering balls by cylinders.

Note:Asymptotic Geometric Analysis is concerned with the geometric and linear properties of finite dimensional objects, normed spaces, and convex bodies, especially with the asymptotics of their various quantitative parameters as thedimension tends to inf inity. The deep geometric, probabilistic, and combinatorial methods developed here are used outside the field in many areas of mathematics and mathematical sciences. The Fields Institute Thematic Program in theFall of 2010 continued an established traditi on of previous large-scale programs devoted to the same general research direction. The main directions of the program included: * Asymptotic theory of convexity and normed spaces *Concentration of measure and isoperimetric inequalities, optimal transport ation approach * Applications of the concept of concentration * Connections with transformation groups and Ramsey theory * Geometrization of probability * Randommatrices * Connection with asymptotic combinatorics and complexity theory These directions are represented in this volume and reflect the present state of this important area of research. It will be of benefit to researchers working ina wide range of mathematical sciencesin particular functional analysis, combinatorics, convex geometry, dynamical systems, operator algebras, and computer science

Note:Polyhedral and Algebraic Methods in Computational Geometry provides a thorough introduction into algorithmic geometry and its applications. It presents its primary topics from the viewpoints of discrete, convex and elementaryalgebraic geometry. The f irst part of the book studies classical problems and techniquesthat refer to polyhedral structures. The authors include a study on algorithms for computing convex hulls as well as the construction ofVoronoi diagrams and Delone triangulations. The second p art of the book develops the primary concepts of (non-linear) computational algebraic geometry. Here, the book looks at Grbner bases and solving systems of polynomialequations. The theory is illustrated by applications in computer graphics, curve reconstr uction and robotics. Throughout the book, interconnections between computational geometry and other disciplines (such as algebraic geometry,optimization and numerical mathematics) are established. Polyhedral and Algebraic Methods in Computational Geometry is directed towards advanced undergraduates in mathematics and computer science, as well as towards engineeringstudents who are interested in the applications of computational geometry

Note:Tamari lattices originated from weakenings or reinterpretations of the familar associativity law. Thiswas the subject of Dov Tamari's thesis at the Sorbonne in Paris in 1951 and the central theme of his subsequent mathematicalwork. Tamari lattices ca n be realized in terms of polytopes called associahedra, which in fact also appeared first in Tamari's thesis. By now these beautiful structures have made their appearance in many different areas of pure andapplied mathematics, such as algebra, combinator ics, computer science, category theory, geometry, topology, and also in physics. Their interdisciplinary nature provides much fascination and value. On the occasion of Dov Tamari'scentennial birthday, this book provides an introduction to topical research related to Tamari's work and ideas. Most of the articles collected in it are written in a way accessible to a wide audience of students and researchers inmathematics and mathematical physics and are accompanied by high quality illustrations

Title:Geometric Methods and Applications [electronic resource] : For Computer Science and Engineering
Author(s): Jean Gallier
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:This book is an introduction to the fundamental concepts and tools needed for solving problems of a geometric nature using a computer. It attempts to fill the gap between standard geometry books, which are primarily theoretical,and applied books on c omputer graphics, computer vision, robotics, or machine learning. This book covers the following topics: affine geometry, projective geometry, Euclidean geometry, convex sets, SVD and principal componentanalysis, manifolds and Lie groups, quadratic optimi zation, basics of differential geometry, and a glimpse of computational geometry (Voronoi diagrams and Delaunay triangulations). Some practical applications of the concepts presentedin this book include computer vision, more specifically contour grouping, motion interpolation, and robot kinematics. In this extensively updated second edition, more material on convex sets, Farkass lemma, quadraticoptimization and the Schur complement have been added. The chapter on SVD has been greatly expanded and now incl udes a presentation of PCA. The book is well illustrated and has chapter summaries and a large number of exercisesthroughout. It will be of interest to a wide audience including computer scientists, mathematicians, and engineers. Reviews of first edition: Gallier's book will be a useful source for anyone interested in applications ofgeometrical methods to solve problems that arise in various branches of engineering. It may help to develop the sophisticated concepts from the more advanced parts of geometry into useful tools for applications. (MathematicalReviews, 2001) ...it will be useful as a reference book for postgraduates wishing to find the connection between their current problem and the underlying geometry.

Note:Triangulations appear everywhere, from volume computations and meshing to algebra and topology. This book studies the subdivisions and triangulations of polyhedral regions and point sets and presents the first comprehensivetreatment of the theory of secondary polytopes and related topics. A central theme of the book is the use of the rich structure of the space of triangulations to solve computational problems (e.g., counting the number of triangulationsor finding optimal triangulations with respect to various criteria), and to establish connections to applications in algebra, computer science, combinatorics, and optimization. With many examples and exercises, and with nearly fivehundred illustrations, the book gently guides readers through the prope rties of the spaces of triangulations of structured (e.g., cubes, cyclic polytopes, lattice polytopes) and pathological (e.g., disconnected spaces oftriangulations) situations using only elementary principles

Title:Geometry Revealed [electronic resource] : A Jacob's Ladder to Modern Higher Geometry
Author(s): Marcel Berger
Date:2010
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Both classical geometry and modern differential geometry have been active subjects of research throughout the 20th century and lie at the heart of many recent advances in mathematics and physics. The underlying motivating conceptfor the present book is that it offers readers the elements of a modern geometric culture by means of a whole series of visually appealing unsolved (or recently solved) problems that require the creation of concepts and tools ofvarying abstraction. Starting with such natural, classical objects as lines, planes, circles, spheres, polygons, polyhedra, curves, surfaces, convex sets, etc., crucial ideas and above all abstract concepts needed for attaining theresults are elucidated. These are conceptual notions, each built above t he preceding and permitting an increase in abstraction, represented metaphorically by Jacob's ladder with its rungs: the 'ladder' in the Old Testament, thatangels ascended and descended... In all this, the aim of the book is to demonstrate to readers the unceasingly renewed spirit of geometry and that even so-called elementary geometry is very much alive and at the very heart of thework of numerous contemporary mathematicians. It is also shown that there are innumerable paths yet to be explored and concep ts to be created. The book is visually rich and inviting, so that readers may open it at random places andfind much pleasure throughout according their own intuitions and inclinations. Marcel Berger is the author of numerous successful books on geometry, this book once again is addressed to all students and teachers of mathematics with anaffinity for geometry

Title:Nonlinear Computational Geometry [electronic resource]

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:An original motivation for algebraic geometry was to understand curves and surfaces in three dimensions. Recent theoretical and technological advances in areas such as robotics, computer vision, computer-aided geometric design andmolecular biology, t ogether with the increased availability of computational resources, have brought these original questions once more into the forefront of research. One particular challenge is to combine applicable methods fromalgebraic geometry with proven techniques fro m piecewise-linear computational geometry (such as Voronoi diagrams and hyperplane arrangements) to develop tools for treating curved objects. These research efforts may be summarized underthe term nonlinear computational geometry. This volume grew out of an IMA workshop on Nonlinear Computational Geometry in May/June 2007 (organized by I.Z. Emiris, R. Goldman, F. Sottile, T. Theobald) which gathered leading experts inthis emerging field. The research and expository articles in the volume are intended to provide an overview of nonlinear computational geometry. Since the topic involves computational geometry, algebraic geometry, and geometricmodeling, the volume has contributions from all of these areas. By addressing a broad range of issues from purely th eoretical and algorithmic problems, to implementation and practical applications this volume conveys the spirit of theIMA workshop

Title:Topics in Hyperplane Arrangements, Polytopes and Box-Splines [electronic resource]

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Several mathematical areas that have been developed independently over the last 30 years are brought together revolving around the computation of the number of integral points in suitable families of polytopes. The problem isformulated here in terms of partition functions and multivariate splines. In its simplest form, the problem is to compute the number of ways a given nonnegative integer can be expressed as the sum of h fixed positive integers. Thisgoes back to ancient times and was investigated b y Euler, Sylvester among others in more recent times also in the higher dimensional case of vectors. The book treats several topics in a non-systematic way to show and compare a varietyof approaches to the subject. No book on the material is available in the existing literature. Key topics and features include: - Numerical analysis treatments relating this problem to the theory of box splines - Study of regularfunctions on hyperplane and toric arrangements via D-modules - Residue formulae for partition fu nctions and multivariate splines - Wonderful completion of the complement of hyperplane arrangements - Theory and properties of the Tuttepolynomial of a matroid and of zonotopes Graduate students as well as researchers in algebra, combinatorics and numeri cal analysis, will benefit from Topics in Hyperplane Arrangements, Polytopes, and Box Splines

Title:Stochastic Models, Information Theory, and Lie Groups, Volume 1 [electronic resource] : Classical Results and Geometric Methods
Author(s): Gregory S Chirikjian
Date:2009
Publisher:Boston : Birkhuser Boston
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The subjects of stochastic processes, information theory, and Lie groups are usually treated separately from each other. This unique two-volumeset presents these topics in a unified setting, thereby building bridges betweenfields that are rarely stud ied by the same people. Unlike the many excellent formal treatments available for each of these subjects individually, the emphasis in both of these volumes is on the use of stochastic, geometric, andgroup-theoretic concepts in the modeling of physical ph enomena. Volume 1 establishes the geometric and statistical foundations required to understand the fundamentals of continuous-time stochastic processes, differential geometry, andthe probabilistic foundations of information theory. Volume 2 delves deeper into relationships between these topics, including stochastic geometry, geometric aspects of the theory of communications and coding, multivariate statisticalanalysis, and error propagation on Lie groups. Key features and topics of Volume 1: * The author reviews stochastic processes and basic differential geometry in an accessible way for applied mathematicians, scientists, and engineers.* Extensive exercises and motivating examples make the work suitable as a textbook for use in courses that emphasize ap plied stochastic processes or differential geometry. * The concept of Lie groups as continuous sets of symmetryoperations is introduced. * The FokkerPlanck Equation for diffusion processes in Euclidean space and on differentiable manifolds is derived in a way that can be understood by nonspecialists. * The concrete presentation style makesit easy for readers to obtain numerical solutions for their own problems the emphasis is on how to calculate quantities rather than how to prove theorems. * A self-conta ined appendix provides a comprehensive review of concepts fromlinear algebra, multivariate calculus, and systems of ordinary differential equations.

Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book treats the interaction between discrete convex geometry, commutative ring theory, algebraic K-theory, and algebraic geometry. The basic mathematical objects are lattice polytopes, rational cones, affine monoids, thealgebras derived from the m, and toric varieties. The book discusses several properties and invariants of these objects, such as efficient generation, unimodular triangulations and covers, basic theory of monoid rings, isomorphismproblems and automorphism groups, homological prope rties and enumerative combinatorics. The last part is an extensive treatment of the K-theory of monoid rings, with extensions to toric varieties and their intersection theory. Thismonograph has been written with a view towards graduate students and resear chers who want to study the cross-connections of algebra and discrete convex geometry. While the text has been written from an algebraist's view point, alsospecialists in lattice polytopes and related objects will find an up-to-date discussion of affine m onoids and their combinatorial structure. Though the authors do not explicitly formulate algorithms, the book takes a constructiveapproach wherever possible. Winfried Bruns is Professor of Mathematics at Universitt Osnabrck. Joseph Gubeladze is Professor of Mathematics at San Francisco State University

Note:Algorithms in algebraic geometry go hand in hand with software packages that implement them. Together they have established the modern field of computational algebraic geometry which has come to play a major role in boththeoretical advances and appli cations. Over the past fifteen years, several excellent general purpose packages for computations in algebraic geometry have been developed, such as, CoCoA, Singular and Macaulay 2. While these packagesevolve continuously, incorporating new mathematical a dvances, they both motivate and demand the creation of new mathematics and smarter algorithms. This volume reflects the workshop Software for Algebraic Geometry held in the weekfrom 23 to 27 October 2006, as the second workshop in the thematic year on App lications of Algebraic Geometry at the IMA. The papers in this volume describe the software packages Bertini, PHClab, Gfan, DEMiCs, SYNAPS, TrIm, Gambit,ApaTools, and the application of Risa/Asir to a conjecture on multiple zeta values. They offer the rea der a broad view of current trends in computational algebraic geometry through software development and applications

Note:This much-anticipated textbook illuminates the field of discrete mathematics with examples, theory, and applications of the discrete volume of a polytope. The authors have weaved a unifying thread through basic yet deep ideas indiscrete geometry, com binatorics, and number theory. Because there is no other book that puts together all of these ideas in one place, this text is truly a service to the mathematical community. We encounter here a friendly invitationto the field of counting integer points in polytopes, also known as Ehrhart theory, and its various connections to elementary finite Fourier analysis, generating functions, the Frobenius coin-exchange problem, solid angles, magicsquares, Dedekind sums, computational geometry, and more. With 250 e xercises and open problems, the reader feels like an active participant, and the authors' engaging style encourages such participation. The many compelling picturesthat accompany the proofs and examples add to the inviting style. For teachers, this text i s ideally suited as a capstone course for undergraduate students or as a compelling text in discrete mathematical topics for beginning graduatestudents. For scientists, this text can be utilized as a quick tooling device, especially for those who want a s elf-contained, easy-to-read introduction to these topics

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The field of convex geometry has become a fertile subject of mathematical activity in the past few decades. This exposition, examining in detail those topics in convex geometry that are concerned with Euclidean space, is enrichedby numerous examples, illustrations, and exercises, with a good bibliography and index. The theory of intrinsic volumes for convex bodies, along with the Hadwiger characterization theorems, whose proofs are based on beautiful geometricideas such as the rounding theorems and t he Steiner formula, are treated in Part 1. In Part 2 the reader is given a survey on curvature and surface area measures and extensions of the class of convex bodies. Part 3 is devoted to theimportant class of star bodies and selectors for convex and star bodies, including a presentation of two famous problems of geometric tomography: the Shephard problem and the BusemannPetty problem. Selected Topics in Convex Geometryrequires of the reader only a basic knowledge of geometry, linear algebra, analysis, to pology, and measure theory. The book can be used in the classroom setting for graduates courses or seminars in convex geometry, geometric and convexcombinatorics, and convex analysis and optimization. Researchers in pure and applied areas will also benefi t from the book

Note:In recent years, the discovery of new algorithms for dealing with polynomial equations, coupled with their implementation on fast inexpensive computers, has sparked a minor revolution in the study and practice of algebraicgeometry. These algorithmic methods have also given rise to some exciting new applications of algebraic geometry. This book illustrates the many uses of algebraic geometry, highlighting some of the more recent applications of Grbnerbases and resultants. The book is written for nonsp ecialists and for readers with a diverse range of backgrounds. It assumes knowledge of the material covered in a standard undergraduate course in abstract algebra, and it would help tohave some previous exposure to Grbner bases. The book does not assume t he reader is familiar with more advanced concepts such as modules. For the new edition, the authors have added a unified discussion of how matrices can be used tospecify monomial orders a revised presentation of the Mora normal form algorithm two sections discussing the Grbner fan of an ideal and the Grbner Walk basis conversion algorithm and a new chapter on the theory of order domains,associated codes, and the Berlekamp-Massey-Sakata decoding algorithm. They have also updated the references, improved so me of the proofs, and corrected typographical errors. David Cox is Professor of Mathematics at Amherst College.John Little is Professor of Mathematics at College of the Holy Cross. Donal OShea is the Elizabeth T. Kennan Professor of Mathematics and Dean o f Faculty at Mt. Holyoke College. These authors also co-wrote the immensely successfulbook, Ideals, Varieties, and Algorithms
