Title:Reductionism, Emergence and Levels of Reality [electronic resource] : The Importance of Being Borderline
Author(s): Sergio Chibbaro
Lamberto Rondoni
Angelo Vulpiani
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Scientists have always attempted to explain the world in terms of a few unifying principles. In the fifth century B.C. Democritus boldly claimed that reality is simply a collection of indivisible and eternal parts or atoms. Overthe centuries his doct rine has remained a landmark, and much progress in physics is due to its distinction between subjective perception and objective reality. This book discusses theory reduction in physics, which states that thewhole is nothing more than the sum of its parts : the properties of things are directly determined by their constituent parts. Reductionism deals with the relation between different theories that address different levels of reality, anduses extrapolations to apply that relation in different sciences. R eality shows a complex structure of connections, and the dream of a unified interpretation of all phenomena in several simple laws continues to attract anyone withgenuine philosophical and scientific interests. If the most radical reductionist point of vi ew is correct, the relationship between disciplines is strictly inclusive: chemistry becomes physics, biology becomes chemistry, and so on.Eventually, only one science, indeed just a single theory, would survive, with all others merging in the Theory of E verything. Is the current coexistence of different sciences a mere historical venture which will end when the Theory ofEverything has been established? Can there be a unified description of nature? Rather than an analysis of full reductionism, this book f ocuses on aspects of theory reduction in physics and stimulates reflection on related questions:is there any evidence of actual reduction? Are the examples used in the philosophy of science too simplistic? What has been endangered by the search for (the) ultimate truth? Has the dream of reductionist reason created any monsters?Is big science one such monster? What is the point of embedding science Y within science X, if predictions cannot be made on t

Title:Quantum Physics: The Bottom-Up Approach [electronic resource] : From the Simple Two-Level System to Irreducible Representations

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This concise tutorial provides the bachelor student and the practitioner with a short text on quantum physics that allows them to understand a wealth of quantum phenomena based on a compact, well readable, yet still concise andaccurate description of nonrelativistic quantum theory. This quadrature of the circle is achieved by concentrating first on the simplest quantum system that still displays all basic features of quantum theory, namely, a systemwith only two quantized energy levels. For most read ers it is very helpful to understand such simple systems before slowly proceeding to more demanding topics like particle entanglement, quantum chaos, or the use of irreducibletensors. This tutorial does not intend to replace the standard textbooks on quan tum mechanics, but will help the average student to understand them, often for the first time

Edition:3rd ed. 2013
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This third edition of Semiconductor Lasers, Stability, Instability and Chaos was significantly extended. In the previous edition, the dynamics and characteristics of chaos in semiconductor lasers after the introduction ofthe fundamental theory of las er chaos and chaotic dynamics induced by self-optical feedback and optical injection was discussed. Semiconductor lasers with new device structures, such as vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers andbroad-area semiconductor lasers, are interesting device s from the viewpoint of chaotic dynamics since they essentially involve chaotic dynamics even in their free-running oscillations. These topics are also treated with respect to thenew developments in the current edition. Also the control of such instabilit ies and chaos control are critical issues for applications. Another interesting and important issue of semiconductor laser chaos in this third edition is chaossynchronization between two lasers and the application to optical secure communication. One of t he new topics in this edition is fast physical number generation using chaotic semiconductor lasers for secure communication anddevelopment of chaos chips and their application. As other new important topics, the recent advance of new semiconductor laser structures is presented, such as quantum-dot semiconductor lasers, quantum-cascade semiconductor lasers,vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers and physical random number generation with application to quantum key distribution. Stabilities, instabilities, and control of quantum-dot semiconductor lasers and quantum-cascade lasers areimportant topics in this field

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This by now classic text provides an excellent introduction and survey to the continuously expanding field of quantum chaos . The topics treated include a detailed exploration of the quantum aspects of nonlinear dynamics, quantumcriteria to distingui sh regular and irregular motion, antiunitary symmetries (generalized time reversal), random matrix theory and a thorough account of the quantum mechanics of dissipative systems. Each chapter is accompanied by aselection of problems which will help the new comer to test and deepen his/her understanding and to acquire an active command of the methods presented. In addition to a significant number of smaller revisions and chapter updates, thethird edition thoroughly expands on the understanding of universal s pectral fluctuations, and to subsequently make the presentation of all semi-classical developments self-contained - a new chapter on classical Hamiltonian chaoshas been inserted. From the reviews of the 2nd edition: In summary, this is definitely an esse ntial reference book for the specialist. It will also ably serve someone entering the field for the first time who needs to learn thetheoretical state of the art in detail. (G.

Note:This book covers all topics in mechanics from elementary Newtonian mechanics, the principles of canonical mechanics and rigid body mechanics to relativistic mechanics and nonlinear dynamics. It was among the first textbooks toinclude dynamical system s and deterministic chaos in due detail. As compared to the previous editions the present fifth edition is updated and revised with more explanations, additional examples and sections on Noether's theorem.Symmetries and invariance principles, the basic ge ometric aspects of mechanics as well as elements of continuum mechanics also play an important role. The book will enable the reader to develop general principles from which equationsof motion follow, to understand the importance of canonical mechanics an d of symmetries as a basis for quantum mechanics, and to get practice in using general theoretical concepts and tools that are essential for all branches ofphysics. The book contains more than 120 problems with complete solutions, as well as some practica l examples which make moderate use of personal computers. This will be appreciated in particular by students using this textbook toaccompany lectures on mechanics. The book ends with some historical notes on scientists who made important contributions to the development of mechanics

Title:Cybernetical Physics [electronic resource] : From Control of Chaos to Quantum Control
Author(s): Alexander L Fradkov
Date:2007
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The control of complex systems is one of the most important aspects in dealing with systems exhibiting nonlinear behaviour or similar features that defy traditional control techniques. This specific subject is gradually becomingknown as cybernetical physics, borrowing methods from both theoretical physics and control engineering. This book is, perhaps, the first attempt to present a unified exposition of the subject and methodology of cybernetical physics aswell as solutions to some of its problems. Emphasis of the book is on the examination of fundamental limits on energy transformation by means of control procedures in both conservative and dissipative systems. A survey of applicationin physics includes the control of chaos, synchronisation of coup led oscillators, pendulum chains, reactions in physical chemistry and of quantum systems such as the dissociation of diatomic molecules. This book has been written havingresearchers from various backgrounds in physics, mathematics and engineering in mind and is thus also suitable as introduction to graduate students working on the understanding of a broad range of complex systems in the naturalsciences

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This is a graduatelevel monographic textbook devoted to understanding, prediction and control of highdimensional chaotic and attractor systems of real life. The objective of the book is to provide the serious reader with aserious scientific tool that will enable the actual performance of competitive research in highdimensional chaotic and attractor dynamics. The book has nine Chapters. The first Chapter gives a textbook-like introduction into thelow-dimensional attractors and chaos. This Chapter has an inspirational character, similar to other books on nonlinear dynamics and deterministic chaos. The second Chapter deals with Smales topological transformations of stretching,squeezing and folding (of the systems phasespace), developed for the purpose o f chaos theory. The third Chapter is devoted to Poincar's 3-body problem and basic techniques of chaos control, mostly of Ott-Grebogi-Yorke type. Thefourth Chapter is a review of both Landaus and topological phase transition theory, as well as Hakens syne rgetics. The fifth Chapter deals with phase synchronization in high-dimensional chaotic systems. The sixth Chapter presentshigh-tech Josephson junctions, the basic components for the future quantum computers. The seventh Chapter deals with fractals and fr actional Hamiltonian dynamics. The 8th Chapter gives a review of modern techniques for dealing withturbulence, ranging from the parameterspace of the Lorenz attractor to the Lie symmetries. The last, 9th, Chapter attempts to give a brief on the cutting ed ge techniques of the high-dimensional nonlinear dynamics (includinggeometries, gauges and solitons, culminating into the chaos field theory)

Title:Geometry and Topology in Hamiltonian Dynamics and Statistical Mechanics [electronic resource]
Author(s): Marco Pettini
Date:2007
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 explores the foundations of hamiltonian dynamical systems and statistical mechanics, in particular phase transition, from the point of view of geometry and topology. A broad participation of topology in these fields hasbeen lacking and this book will provide a welcome overview of the current research in the area, in which the author himself is a pioneer. Using geometrical thinking to solve fundamental problems in these areas, compared to the purelyanalytical methods usually used in physics could be highly productive. The author skillfully guides the reader, whether mathematician or physicists through the background needed to understand and use these techniques. Dr. Marco Pettiniis affiliated with the Istituto Nazionale di Astrofisica Osser vatorio Astrofisico di Arretri in Firenze, Italy. From the foreword: It is in particular the quality of mind of the author and his deep physical, as well asmathematical insights, which make this book so special and inspiring. It is a must for those who wa nt to venture into a new approach to old problems or want to use new tools for new problems. -- Professor E. G. D. Cohen,Rockefellar University, New York

Title:The Emerging Physics of Consciousness [electronic resource]
Author(s): Jack A Tuszynski
Date:2006
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Consciousness remains one of the major unsolved problems in science. How do the feelings and sensations making up conscious experience arise from the concerted actions of nerve cells and their associated synaptic and molecularprocesses? Can such feel ings be explained by modern science, or is there an entirely different kind of explanation needed? And how can this seemingly intractable problem be approached experimentally? How do the operations of theconscious mind emerge out of the specific interacti ons involving billions of neurons? This book seeks answers to these questions on the underlying assumption that consciousness can be understood using the intellectual potential ofmodern physics and other sciences. There are a number of theories of conscio usness, some based on classical physics while others require the use of quantum concepts. The latter ones have drawn criticism from the parts of the scientificestablishment while simultaneously claiming that classical approaches are doomed to failure. The contributing authors present a spectrum of opinions from both sides of this on-going scientific debate, allowing readers to decide forthemselves which of the approaches are most likely to succeed

Note:The book is directed to researchers and graduate students pursuing an advanced degree. It provides details of techniques directed towards solving problems in non-linear dynamics and chos that are, in general, not amenable to aperturbative treatment. The consideration of fundamental interactions is a prime example where non-perturbative techniques are needed. Extension of these techniques to finite temperature problems is considered. At present these ideasare primarily used in a perturbative context. However, non-perturbative techniques have been considered in some specific cases. Experts in the field on non-linear dynamics and chaos and fundamental interactions elaborate the techniquesand provide a critical look at the present status and explore futu re directions that may be fruitful. The text of the main talks will be very useful to young graduate students who are starting their studies in these areas

Note:This book offers a modern updated review on the most important activities in today dynamical systems and statistical mechanics by some of the best experts in the domain. It gives a contemporary and pedagogical view on theories ofclassical and quantum chaos and complexity in hamiltonian and ergodic systems and their applications to anomalous transport in fluids, plasmas, oceans and atom-optic devices and to control of chaotic transport. The book is issued fromlecture notes of the International Summer School on Chaotic Dynamics and Transport in Classical and Quantum Systems held in Cargse (Corsica) 18th to the 30th August 2003. It reflects the spirit of the School to provide lecturesat the post-doctoral level on basic concepts and tools. The first part concerns ergodicity and mixing, complexity and entropy functions, SRB measures, fractal dimensions and bifurcations in hamiltonian systems. Then, models ofdynamical evolutions of transport processes in classical and quantum systems have been largely expl ained. The second part concerns transport in fluids, plasmas and reacting media. On the other hand, new experiments of cold opticallytrapped atoms and electrodynamics cavity have been thoroughly presented. Finally, several papers bear on synchronism and c ontrol of chaos.
