Title:Fluctuations of Lvy Processes with Applications [electronic resource] : Introductory Lectures
Author(s): Andreas E Kyprianou
Date:2014
Edition:2nd ed. 2014
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Lvy processes are the natural continuous-time analogue of random walks and form a rich class of stochastic processes around which a robust mathematical theory exists. Their application appears in the theory of many areas ofclassical and modern stocha stic processes including storage models, renewal processes, insurance risk models, optimal stopping problems, mathematical finance, continuous-state branching processes and positive self-similar Markovprocesses. This textbook is based on a series of gradu ate courses concerning the theory and application of Lvy processes from the perspective of their path fluctuations. Central to the presentation is the decomposition of paths interms of excursions from the running maximum as well as an understanding of sho rt- and long-term behaviour. The book aims to be mathematically rigorous while still providing an intuitive feel for underlying principles. The results andapplications often focus on the case of Lvy processes with jumps in only one direction, for which re cent theoretical advances have yielded a higher degree of mathematical tractability. The second edition additionally addresses recentdevelopments in the potential analysis of subordinators, Wiener-Hopf theory, the theory of scale functions and their appli cation to ruin theory, as well as including an extensive overview of the classical and modern theory of positiveself-similar Markov processes. Each chapter has a comprehensive set of exercises. Andreas Kyprianou has a degree in Mathematics from the Univer sity of Oxford and a Ph.D. in Probability Theory from The University of Sheffield. He iscurrently a Professor of Probability at the University of Bath, having held academic positions in Mathematics and Statistics Departments at the London School of Econom ics, Edinburgh University, Utrecht University and Heriot-WattUniversity, besides working for nearly two years as a research mathematician in the oil industry. His research is focused on pure and a

Title:Many-Electron Approaches in Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics [electronic resource] : A Multidisciplinary View
Author(s): Volker Bach
Luigi Delle Site
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book provides a broad description of the development and (computational) application of many-electron approaches from a multidisciplinary perspective. In the context of studying many-electron systems Computer Science,Chemistry, Mathematics and P hysics are all intimately interconnected. However, beyond a handful of communities working at the interface between these disciplines, there is still a marked separation of subjects. This book seeks to offera common platform for possible exchanges between the various fields and to introduce the reader to perspectives for potential further developments across the disciplines. The rapid advances of modern technology will inevitably requiresubstantial improvements in the approaches currently used, which will in turn make exchanges between disciplines indispensable. In essence this book is one of the very first attempts at an interdisciplinary approach to themany-electron problem

Title:Accurate Calibration of Raman Systems [electronic resource] : At the Karlsruhe Tritium Neutrino Experiment
Author(s): Magnus Schlsser
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Neutrinos can arguably be labeled as the most fascinating elementary particles known as their small but non-zero rest mass points to new mass generating mechanisms beyond the Standard Model, and also assigns primordial neutrinosfrom the Big Bang a di stinct role in shaping the evolution of large-scale structures in the universe. The open question of the absolute neutrino mass scale will be addressed by the Karlsruhe Tritium Neutrino (KATRIN) experiment,currently under construction. This thesis reports major contributions to developing and implementing new laser-spectroscopic precision tools to continuously monitor the isotope content of the windowless gaseous tritium source ofKATRIN. The method of choice, Raman spectroscopy, is ideally suited for in-s itu monitoring of all six hydrogen isotopologues. In a series of beautiful experiments the author obtained two independent novel calibration methods, firstbased on a comparison of experimental Raman depolarization ratios with corresponding quantum-chemica l calculations, and second on a gas sampling technique. Both methods yield consistent cross-calibration results and, as well asyielding improvements in precision, will be of major importance in reducing systematic effects in long-term neutrino mass measur ements. The methods developed in this thesis also have great potential to further broaden the applicationsof Raman spectroscopy to study extended sources such as in atmospheric physics.

Title:Invariant Probabilities of Transition Functions [electronic resource]
Author(s): Radu Zaharopol
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:The structure of the set of all the invariant probabilities and the structure of various types of individual invariant probabilities of a transition function are two topics of significant interest in the theory of transitionfunctions, and are studied in this book. The results obtained are useful in ergodic theory and the theory of dynamical systems, which, in turn, can be applied in various other areas (like number theory). They are illustrated usingtransition functions defined by flows, semiflows, a nd one-parameter convolution semigroups of probability measures. In this book, all results on transition probabilities that have been published by the author between 2004 and 2008 areextended to transition functions. The proofs of the results obtained are new. For transition functions that satisfy very general conditions the book describes an ergodic decomposition that provides relevant information on the structureof the corresponding set of invariant probabilities. Ergodic decomposition means a splitting of the state space, where the invariant ergodic probability measures play a significant role. Other topics covered include: characterizationsof the supports of various types of invariant probability measures and the use of these to obtain criteria for un ique ergodicity, and the proofs of two mean ergodic theorems for a certain type of transition functions. The book will beof interest to mathematicians working in ergodic theory, dynamical systems, or the theory of Markov processes. Biologists, physicists and economists interested in interacting particle systems and rigorous mathematics will also findthis book a valuable resource. Parts of it are suitable for advanced graduate courses. Prerequisites are basic notions and results on functional analysis, gen eral topology, measure theory, the Bochner integral and some of itsapplications

Title:Random Walks on Disordered Media and their Scaling Limits [electronic resource] : cole d't de Probabilits de Saint-Flour XL - 2010
Author(s): Takashi Kumagai
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:In these lecture notes, we will analyze the behavior of random walk on disordered mediaby means ofboth probabilistic and analytic methods, and will study the scalinglimits. We will focus on the discrete potential theory andhow the theory is effective ly used in the analysis of disordered media.Thefirst few chapters of the notes can be used as an introduction to discrete potential theory. Recently, there has beensignificantprogress onthetheoryof random walkon disordered media such as fractals and rand om media.Random walk on a percolation cluster(the ant in the labyrinth)is one of the typical examples. In 1986, H. Kesten showedtheanomalousbehavior of a random walk on a percolation cluster at critical probability. Partly motivated by this work, analysis and diffusion processes on fractals have been developed since the late eighties. As a result, various new methods havebeen produced to estimate heat kernels on disordered media. These developments are summarized in the notes

Note:This volume presents recent advances in the interaction between Geometric Control Theory and sub-Riemannian geometry.On the one hand, Geometric Control Theory used the differential geometric and Lie algebraic language forstudying controllability, mot ion planning,stabilizability and optimality for control systems. The geometric approach turned out to be fruitful in applications to robotics, vision modeling, mathematical physics etc. On the other hand,Riemannian geometry and its generalizations, such a s sub-Riemannian, Finslerian geometry etc., have been actively adopting methods developed in the scope of geometric control. Application of these methods has led to importantresults regarding geometry of sub-Riemannian spaces, regularity of sub-Riemannian distances, properties of the group of diffeomorphisms of sub-Riemannian manifolds, local geometry and equivalence of distributions and sub-Riemannianstructures, regularity of the Hausdorff volume

Title:Electrical Properties of Graphite Nanoparticles in Silicone [electronic resource] : Flexible Oscillators and Electromechanical Sensing
Author(s): Samuel David Littlejohn
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This thesis examines a novel class of flexible electronic material with great potential for use in the construction of stretchable amplifiers and memory elements. Most remarkably the composite material produces spontaneousoscillations that increase i n frequency when pressure is applied to it. In this way, the material mimics the excitatory response of pressure-sensing neurons in the human skin. The composites, formed of silicone and graphiticnanoparticles, were prepared in several allotropic forms an d functionalized with naphthalene diimide molecules. A systematic study is presented of the negative differential resistance (NDR) region of the current-voltage curves, whichis responsible for the materials active properties. This study was conducted as a function of temperature, graphite filling fraction, scaling to reveal the break-up of the samples into electric field domains at the onset of the NDRregion, and an electric-field induced metal-insulator transition in graphite nanoparticles. The effect of molecular functionalization on the miscibility threshold and the current-voltage curves is demonstrated. Room-temperature andlow-temperature measurements were performed on these composite films under strains using a remote-controlled, custom-made step mo tor bench

Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Tools and methods from complex systems science can have a considerable impact on the way in which the quantitative assessment of economic and financial issues is approached, as discussed in this thesis. Firstit is shownthatthe self-organization of fi nancial markets is a crucial factor in the understanding of their dynamics. In fact, using an agent-based approach, it is argued that financial markets stylized facts appear only in the self-organizedstate. Secondly, the thesis points out the potential of so-called big data science for financial market modeling, investigating how web-driven data canyield a picture ofmarket activities: it has been found that web query volumesanticipate trade volumes. As a third achievement, the metrics developed herefor co untry competitiveness and product complexity is groundbreaking incomparison to mainstream theories of economic growth and technological development.A key element in assessing the intangible variables determining the success of countries in the present glo balized economy is represented by the diversification of the productive basket of countries. The comparison between the level ofcomplexity of a country's productive system and economic indicators such as the GDP per capita discloses its hidden growth pote ntial

Title:Analytic Capacity, the Cauchy Transform, and Non-homogeneous CaldernZygmund Theory [electronic resource]
Author(s): Xavier Tolsa
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Birkhuser
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book studies some of the groundbreaking advances that have been made regarding analytic capacity and its relationship to rectifiability in the decade 19952005. The Cauchy transform plays a fundamental role in this areaand is accordingly one of t he main subjects covered. Another important topic, which may be of independent interest for many analysts, is the so-called non-homogeneous Caldern-Zygmund theory, the development of which has been largelymotivated by the problems arising in connection wi th analytic capacity. The Painlev problem, which was first posed around 1900, consists in finding a description of the removable singularities for bounded analytic functions in metricand geometric terms. Analytic capacity is a key tool in the study of thi s problem. In the 1960s Vitushkin conjectured that the removable sets which have finite length coincide with those which are purely unrectifiable. Moreover,because of the applications to the theory of uniform rational approximation, he posed the question as to whether analytic capacity is semiadditive. This work presents full proofs of Vitushkins conjecture and of the semiadditivity ofanalytic capacity, both of which remained open problems until very recently. Other related questions are also discussed, s uch as the relationship between rectifiability and the existence of principal values for the Cauchy transformsand other singular integrals. The book is largely self-contained and should be accessible for graduate students in analysis, as well as a valuabl e resource for researchers

Title:Quantum Potential: Physics, Geometry and Algebra [electronic resource]
Author(s): Ignazio Licata
Davide Fiscaletti
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Recently the interest in Bohm realist interpretation of quantum mechanics has grown. The important advantage of this approach lies in the possibility to introduce non-locality ab initio, and not as an unexpected host. Inthis bookthe authors give a de tailed analysis of quantum potential, the non-locality term and its role in quantum cosmology and information. The different approaches to the quantum potential are analysed, starting from the originalattempt to introduce a realism of particles trajectori es (influenced by de Broglies pilot wave) to the recent dynamic interpretation provided by Goldstein, Durr, Tumulka and Zangh, and the geometrodynamic picture, with suggestionabout quantum gravity. Finally we focus on the algebraic reading of Hiley and Bi rkbeck school, that analyse the meaning of the non-local structure of the world, bringing important consequences for the space, time and informationconcepts

Title:Linear Integral Equations [electronic resource]
Author(s): Rainer Kress
Date:2014
Edition:3rd ed. 2014
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book combines theory, applications, and numerical methods, and covers each of these fields with the same weight. In order to make the book accessible to mathematicians, physicists, and engineers alike, the author has made itas self-contained as possible, requiring only a solid foundation in differential and integral calculus. The functional analysis which is necessary for an adequate treatment of the theory and the numerical solution of integral equationsis developed within the book itself. Prob lems are included at the end of each chapter. For this third edition in order to make the introduction to the basic functional analytic tools more complete the HahnBanach extensiontheorem and the Banach open mapping theorem are now included in the text. The treatment of boundary value problems in potential theory has been extended by a more complete discussion of integral equations of the first kind in theclassical Holder space setting and of both integral equations of the first and second kind in the co ntemporary Sobolev space setting. In the numerical solution part of the book, the author included a new collocation method fortwo-dimensional hypersingular boundary integral equations and a collocation method for the three-dimensional Lippmann-Schwinger e quation. The final chapter of the book on inverse boundary value problems for the Laplace equation hasbeen largely rewritten with special attention to the trilogy of decomposition, iterative and sampling methods Reviews of earlier editions: This book is an excellent introductory text for students, scientists, and engineers whowant to learn the basic theory of linear integral equations and their numerical solution. (Math. Reviews, 2000) This is a good introductory text book on linear integral equations. It contains almost all the topics necessary fora student. The presentation of the subject matter is lucid, clear and in the proper modern framework without being too abstract. (ZbM

Title:Multi-scale Analysis for Random Quantum Systems with Interaction [electronic resource]
Author(s): Victor Chulaevsky
Yuri Suhov
Date:2014
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Birkhuser
Size:1 online resource
Note:The study of quantum disorder has generated considerable research activity in mathematics and physics over past 40 years. While single-particle models have been extensively studied at a rigorous mathematical level, little wasknown about systems of se veral interacting particles, let alone systems with positive spatial particle density. Creating a consistent theory of disorder in multi-particle quantum systems is an important and challenging problem thatlargely remains open. Multi-scale Analysis for Ra ndom Quantum Systems with Interaction presents the progress that had been recently achieved in this area. The main focus of the book is on a rigorous derivation of themulti-particle localization in a strong random external potential field. To make the pr esentation accessible to a wider audience, the authors restrict attention to a relatively simple tight-binding Anderson model on a cubic lattice Zd. This book includes the following cutting-edge features: * an introduction to the state-of-the-art single-p article localization theory * an extensive discussion of relevant technical aspects of the localization theory * a thoroughcomparison of the multi-particle model with its single-particle counterpart * a self-contained rigorous derivation of both spectral and dynamical localization in the multi-particle tight-binding Anderson model. Required mathematicalbackground for the book includes a knowledge of functional calculus, spectral theory (essentially reduced to the case of finite matrices) and basic probab ility theory. This is an excellent text for a year-long graduate course orseminar in mathematical physics. It also can serve as a standard reference for specialists

Note:M. M. Schiffer, the dominant figure in geometric function theory in the second half of the twentieth century, was a mathematician of exceptional breadth, whose work ranged over such areas as univalent functions, conformal mapping,Riemann surfaces, pa rtial differential equations, potential theory, fluid dynamics, and the theory of relativity. He is best remembered for the powerful variational methods he developed and applied to extremal problems in a widevariety of scientific fields. Spanning seven d ecades, the papers collected in these two volumes represent some of Schiffer's most enduring innovations. Expert commentaries provide valuable background and survey subsequentdevelopments. Also included are a complete bibliography and several appreciation s of Schiffer's influence by collaborators and other admirers.

Title:Mathematical Methods for Elastic Plates [electronic resource]
Author(s): Christian Constanda
Date:2014
Publisher:London : Springer London : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Mathematical models of deformation of elastic plates are used by applied mathematicians and engineers in connection with a wide range of practical applications, from microchip production to the construction of skyscrapers andaircraft. This book emplo ys two important analytic techniques to solve the fundamental boundary value problems for the theory of plates with transverse shear deformation, which offers a more complete picture of the physical process ofbending than Kirchhoffs classical one. The fi rst method transfers the ellipticity of the governing system to the boundary, leading to singular integral equations on the contour of the domain. These equations, established on thebasis of the properties of suitable layer potentials, are then solved in spaces of smooth (Hlder continuous and Hlder continuously differentiable) functions. The second technique rewrites the differential system in terms ofcomplex variables and fully integrates it, expressing the solution as a combination of complex analytic potentials. The last chapter develops a generalized Fourier series method closely connected with the structure of the system,which can be used to compute approximate solutions. The numerical results generated as an illustration for the interior Dirichlet problem are accompanied by remarks regarding the efficiency and accuracy of the procedure. Thepresentation of the material is detailed and self-contained, making Mathematical Methods for Elastic Plates accessible to researchers and graduate students wit h a basic knowledge of advanced calculus

Title:Potential Theory [electronic resource]
Author(s): Lester L Helms
Date:2014
Edition:2nd ed. 2014
Publisher:London : Springer London : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Potential Theory presents a clear path from calculus to classical potential theory and beyond, with the aim of moving the reader into the area of mathematical research as quickly as possible. The subject matter is developed fromfirst principles using only calculus. Commencing with the inverse square law for gravitational and electromagnetic forces and the divergence theorem, the author develops methods for constructing solutions of Laplace's equation on aregion with prescribed values on the boundary of the region. The latter half of the book addresses more advanced material aimed at those with the background of a senior undergraduate or beginning graduate course in real analysis.Starting with solutions of the Dirichlet problem subject to mixed bounda ry conditions on the simplest of regions, methods of morphing such solutions onto solutions of Poisson's equation on more general regions are developed usingdiffeomorphisms and the Perron-Wiener-Brelot method, culminating in application to Brownian motion . In this new edition, many exercises have been added to reconnect the subject matter to the physical sciences. This book willundoubtedly be useful to graduate students and researchers in mathematics, physics, and engineering

Title:Dirac Spectra in Dense QCD [electronic resource]

Date:2013
Publisher:Tokyo : Springer Japan : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Gaining a theoretical understanding of the properties of ultra-relativistic dense matter has been one of the most important and challenging goals in quantum chromodynamics (QCD). In this thesis, the author analyzes dense quarkmatter in QCD with gauge group SU(2) using low-energy effective theoretical techniques and elucidates a novel connection between statistical properties of the Dirac operator spectrum at high baryon chemical potential and a specialclass of random matrix theories. This work can be viewed as an extension of a similar correspondence between QCD and matrix models which was previously known only for infinitesimal chemical potentials. In future numerical simulationsof dense matter the analytical results reported here are expected to se rve as a useful tool to extract physical observables such as the BCS gap from numerical data on the Dirac spectrum

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book presents a concise and modern coverage of scattering theory. It is motivated by the fact that experimental advances have shifted and broadened the scope of applications where concepts from scattering theory are used,e.g. tothe field of ultr acold atoms and molecules, which has been experiencing enormous growth in recent years, largely triggered by the successful realization of Bose-Einstein condensates of dilute atomic gases in 1995. In thepresent treatment, special attention is given to the role played by the long-range behaviour of the projectile-target interaction, and a theory is developed, which is well suited todescribe near-threshold bound and continuum statesin realistic binary systems such as diatomic molecules or molecular ions. Th e level of abstraction is keptas low as at all possible,and deeper questions related tomathematical foundations of scattering theory are passed by. Thebookshould beunderstandable for anyone with a basic knowledge of nonrelativistic quantum mechanics. It i s intended for advanced students and researchers, and it is hoped that it will be useful for theorists and experimentalistsalike

Title:Transport Phenomena in Strongly Correlated Fermi Liquids [electronic resource]

Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:In conventional metals, various transport coefficients are scaled according to the quasiparticle relaxation time, \tau, which implies that the relaxation time approximation (RTA) holds well. However, such a simple scaling does nothold in many strongl y correlated electron systems, reflecting their unique electronic states. The most famous example would be cuprate high-Tc superconductors (HTSCs), where almost all the transport coefficients exhibit a significantdeviation from the RTA results. To better understand the origin of this discrepancy, we develop a method for calculating various transport coefficients beyond the RTA by employing field theoretical techniques. Near the magnetic quantumcritical point, the current vertex correction (CVC), which des cribes the electron-electron scattering beyond the relaxation time approximation, gives rise to various anomalous transport phenomena. We explain anomalous transportphenomena in cuprate HTSCs and other metals near their magnetic or orbital quantum critica l pointusing a uniform approach. We also discuss spin related transport phenomena in strongly correlated systems. In many d- and f-electronsystems, the spin current induced by the spin Hall effect is considerably greater because of the orbital degrees of freedom. This fact attracts much attention due to its potential application in spintronics. We discuss various novelcharge, spin and heat transport phenomena in strongly correlated metals

Title:Quasi-Stationary Distributions [electronic resource] : Markov Chains, Diffusions and Dynamical Systems

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Main concepts of quasi-stationary distributions (QSDs) for killed processes are the focus of the present volume. For diffusions, the killing is at the boundary and for dynamical systems there is a trap. The authors present theQSDs as the ones that al low describing the long-term behavior conditioned to not being killed. Studies in this research area started with Kolmogorov and Yaglom and in the last few decades have received a great deal of attention. Theauthors provide the exponential distribution pr operty of the killing time for QSDs, present the more general result on their existence and study the process of trajectories that survive forever. For birth-and-death chains anddiffusions, the existence of a single or a continuum of QSDs is described. Th ey study the convergence to the extremal QSD and give the classification of the survival process. In this monograph, the authors discuss Gibbs QSDs forsymbolic systems and absolutely continuous QSDs for repellers. The findings described are relevant to re searchers in the fields of Markov chains, diffusions, potential theory, dynamical systems, and in areas where extinction is acentral concept. The theory is illustrated with numerous examples. The volume uniquely presents the distribution behavior of indiv iduals who survive in a decaying population for a very long time. It also provides the background forapplications in mathematical ecology, statistical physics, computer sciences, and economics

Title:Multi-Layer Potentials and Boundary Problems [electronic resource] : for Higher-Order Elliptic Systems in Lipschitz Domains

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Many phenomena in engineering and mathematical physics can be modeled by means of boundary value problems for a certain elliptic differential operator in a given domain. When the differential operator under discussion is ofsecond order a variety of t ools are available for dealing with such problems, including boundary integral methods, variational methods, harmonic measure techniques, and methods based on classical harmonic analysis. When thedifferential operator is of higher-order (as is the case, e .g., with anisotropic plate bending when one deals with a fourth order operator) only a few options could be successfully implemented. In the 1970s Alberto Caldern, one ofthe founders of the modern theory of Singular Integral Operators, advocated the use of layer potentials for the treatment of higher-order elliptic boundary value problems. The present monograph represents the first systematic treatmentbased on this approach. This research monograph lays, for the first time, the mathematical foundation ai med at solving boundary value problems for higher-order elliptic operators in non-smooth domains using the layer potential methodand addresses a comprehensive range of topics, dealing with elliptic boundary value problems in non-smooth domains including l ayer potentials, jump relations, non-tangential maximal function estimates, multi-traces and extensions,boundary value problems with data in WhitneyLebesque spaces, WhitneyBesov spaces, WhitneySobolev- based Lebesgue spaces, WhitneyTriebelLizorkin spaces, WhitneySobolev-based Hardy spaces, WhitneyBMO and WhitneyVMOspaces

Note:New observations of the period between the cosmic recombination and the end of reionization are posing intriguing questions about where the first generations of stars were formed, how the first galaxies were assembled, whetherthese galaxies have low redshift counterparts, and what role the early galaxies played in the reionization process. Combining the new observational data with theoretical models can shed new light on open issues regarding the starformation process, its role in the reionization of the Universe, and the metal enrichment in galaxies at those early epochs. This volume brings together leading experts in the field to discuss our current level of understanding andwhat may come in the near future as our observational as well as theoretic al tools improve. The book confronts the theory of how the first stars, black holes, and galaxies formed with current and planned observations. This synthesis isvery timely, just ahead of the establishment of major new facilities, such as the James Webb S pace Telescope (JWST), a next-generation, millimeter/sub-millimeter observatory in the Atacama desert (ALMA), and ground-based ExtremelyLarge Telescopes (ELT). Together, they will revolutionize the study of the most distant objects in the Universe. This v olume is aimed at beginning graduate students but can also serve as a reference work for active researchers in thefield. Apart from presenting the fundamental concepts involved, it also provides an introduction to the methods and techniques used. The book will also be useful to anyone with an astrophysical background who needs an effectivestarting point for learning about the first stars and galaxies

Note:This book has evolved from lectures devoted to applications of the Wentzel - Kramers Brillouin- (WKB or quasi-classical) approximation and of the method of 1/N expansion for solving various problems in atomic and nuclearphysics. The intent of this b ook is to help students and investigators in this field to extend their knowledge of these important calculation methods in quantum mechanics. Much material is contained herein that is not to be foundelsewhere. WKB approximation, while constituting a fund amental area in atomic physics, has not been the focus of many books. A novel method has been adopted for the presentation of the subject matter, the material is presented as asuccession of problems, followed by a detailed way of solving them. The methods introduced are then used to calculate Rydberg states in atomic systems and to evaluate potential barriers and quasistationary states. Finally, adiabatictransition and ionization of quantum systems are covered

Title:Energy Level Alignment and Electron Transport Through Metal/Organic Contacts [electronic resource] : From Interfaces to Molecular Electronics

Note:In recent years, ever more electronic devices have started to exploit the advantages of organic semiconductors. The work reported in this thesis focuses on analyzing theoretically the energy level alignment of differentmetal/organic interfaces, neces sary to tailor devices with good performance. Traditional methods based on density functional theory (DFT), are not appropriate for analyzing them because they underestimate the organic energy gap andfail to correctly describe the van der Waals forces. Si nce the size of these systems prohibits the use of more accurate methods, corrections to those DFT drawbacks are desirable. In this work a combination of a standard DFT calculationwith the inclusion of the charging energy (U) of the molecule, calculated f rom first principles, is presented. Regarding the dispersion forces, incorrect long range interaction is substituted by a van der Waals potential. With thesecorrections, the C60, benzene, pentacene, TTF and TCNQ/Au(111) interfaces are analyzed, both for s ingle molecules and for a monolayer. The results validate the induced density of interface states model

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:As well as highlighting potentially useful applications for network analysis, this volume identifies new targets for mathematical research that promise to provide insights into network systems theory as well as facilitating thecross-fertilization of ideas between sectors. Focusing on financial, security and social aspects of networking, the volume adds to the growing body of evidence showing that network analysis has applications to transportation,communication, health, finance, and social policy mor e broadly. It provides powerful models for understanding the behavior of complex systems that, in turn, will impact numerous cutting-edge sectors in science and engineering, such aswireless communication, network security, distributed computing and social networking, financial analysis, and cyber warfare. The volume offers an insider' s view of cutting-edge research in network systems, including methodologieswith immense potential for interdisciplinary application. The contributors have all presented mate rial at a series of workshops organized on behalf of Canadas MITACS initiative, which funds projects and study grants inmathematics for information technology and complex systems. These proceedings include papers from workshops on financial networks, netw ork security and cryptography, and social networks. MITACS has shown that the partlyghettoized nature of network systems research has led to duplicated work in discrete fields, and thus this initiative has the potential to save time and accelerate the pac e of research in a number of areas of network systemsresearch

Note:In this text, a theory for general linear parabolic partial differential equations is established, which covers equations with inhomogeneous symbol structure as well as mixed order systems. Typical applications include severalvariants of the Stokes s ystem and free boundary value problems. We show well-posedness in Lp-Lq-Sobolev spaces in time and space for the linear problems (i.e., maximal regularity), which is the key step for the treatment of nonlinearproblems. The theory is based on the concept o f the Newton polygon and can cover equations that are not accessible by standard methods as, e.g., semigroup theory. Results are obtained in different types of non-integer Lp-Sobolev spacesas Besov spaces, Bessel potential spaces, and TriebelLizorkin spac es. The latter class appears in a natural way as traces of Lp-Lq-Sobolev spaces. We also present a selection of applications in the whole space and on half-spaces.Among others, we prove well-posedness of the linearizations of the generalized thermoelastic plate equation, the two-phase NavierStokes equations with BoussinesqScriven surface, and the Lp-Lq two-phase Stefan problem withGibbsThomson correction

Note:There are several techniques to study noncooperative dynamic games, suchas dynamic programming and the maximum principle (also called the Lagrangemethod). It turns out, however, that one way to characterize dynamicpotentialgames requires to analyze i nverse optimal control problems, and it is here wherethe Euler equation approach comes in because it is particularly wellsuited tosolve inverse problems.Despite the importance of dynamicpotential games, there is no systematicstudy about them.

Note:This work representsone of the first comprehensive attempts to seamlessly integrate two highly active interdisciplinary domains in soft matter science microfluidics and liquid crystals (LCs). Motivated by the lack offundamental experiments, Dr. Seng upta initiated systematic investigation of LC flows at micro scales,gaining new insights that are also suggestive ofnovel applications. By tailoring the surface anchoring of the LC molecules and thechannel dimensions, different topological constraintswere controllably introduced within the microfluidic devices. These topological constraintswere further manipulated using a flow field, paving the way for TopologicalMicrofluidics. Harnessing topologyon a microfluidic platform, as described in this thesis,ope ns up capabilities beyond the conventional viscous-dominated microfluidics, promising potential applications in targeted delivery andsorting systems, self-assembled motifs, and novel metamaterial fabrications
