Title:Bernoulli Numbers and Zeta Functions [electronic resource]
Author(s): Tsuneo Arakawa
Tomoyoshi Ibukiyama
Masanobu Kaneko
Date:2014
Publisher:Tokyo : Springer Japan : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Two major subjects are treated in this book. The main one is the theory of Bernoulli numbers and the other is the theory of zeta functions. Historically, Bernoulli numbers were introduced to give formulas for the sums of powersof consecutive integers . The real reason that they are indispensable for number theory, however, lies in the fact that special values of the Riemann zeta function can be written by using Bernoulli numbers. This leads to more advancedtopics, a number of which are treated in this book: Historical remarks on Bernoulli numbers and the formula for the sum of powers of consecutive integers a formula for Bernoulli numbers by Stirling numbers the Clausenvon Staudttheorem on the denominators of Bernoulli numbers Kummer's congruence betw een Bernoulli numbers and a related theory of p-adic measures the EulerMaclaurin summation formula the functional equation of the Riemann zeta function andthe Dirichlet L functions, and their special values at suitable integers various formulas of exponen tial sums expressed by generalized Bernoulli numbers the relation between ideal classes of orders of quadratic fields and equivalenceclasses of binary quadratic forms class number formula for positive definite binary quadratic forms congruences between so me class numbers and Bernoulli numbers simple zeta functions of prehomogeneous vector spaces Hurwitz numbers

Author(s): Carl-Fredrik Westin
Anna Vilanova
Bernhard Burgeth
Date:2014
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Arising from the fourth Dagstuhl conference entitled Visualization and Processing of Tensors and Higher Order Descriptors for Multi-Valued Data (2011), this book offers a broad and vivid view of current work in this emergingfield. Topics covered rang e from applications of the analysis of tensor fields to research on their mathematical and analytical properties. Part I, Tensor Data Visualization, surveys techniques for visualization of tensors and tensorfields in engineering, discusses the current sta te of the art and challenges, and examines tensor invariants and glyph design, including an overview of common glyphs. The second Part, Representation and Processing of Higher-orderDescriptors, describes a matrix representation of local phase, outlines ma thematical morphological operations techniques, extended for use in vector images, and generalizes erosion to the space of diffusion weighted MRI. Part III,Higher Order Tensors and Riemannian-Finsler Geometry, offers powerful mathematical language to mode l and analyze large and complex diffusion data such as High Angular Resolution Diffusion Imaging (HARDI) and Diffusion Kurtosis Imaging(DKI). A Part entitled Tensor Signal Processing presents new methods for processing tensor-valued data, including a nove l perspective on performing voxel-wise morphometry of diffusion tensor data using kernel-based approach, exploresthe free-water diffusion model, and reviews proposed approaches for computing fabric tensors, emphasizing trabecular bone research. The last P art, Applications of Tensor Processing, discusses metric and curvature tensors, two of themost studied tensors in geometry processing. Also covered is a technique for diagnostic prediction of first-episode schizophrenia patients based on brain diffusion M RI data. The last chapter presents an interactive system integratingthe visual analysis of diffusion MRI tractography with data from electroencephalography

Title:Dynamical Systems Generated by Linear Maps [electronic resource]
Author(s): emal B Dolianin
Anatolij B Antonevich
Date:2014
Edition:2nd ed. 2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:The book deals with dynamical systems, generated by linear mappings of finite dimensional spaces and their applications. These systems have a relatively simple structure from the point of view of the modern dynamical systemstheory. However, for the d ynamical systems of this sort, it is possible to obtain explicit answers to specific questions being useful in applications. The considered problems are natural and look rather simple, but in reality in thecourse of investigation, they confront users with plenty of subtle questions, and their detailed analysis needs a substantial effort. The problems arising are related to linear algebra and dynamical systems theory, and therefore, thebook can be considered as a natural amplification, refinement and supple ment to linear algebra and dynamical systems theory textbooks

Title:Functional Analysis and Applied Optimization in Banach Spaces [electronic resource] : Applications to Non-Convex Variational Models
Author(s): Fabio Botelho
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book introduces the basic concepts of real and functional analysis. It presents the fundamentals of the calculus of variations, convex analysis, duality, and optimization that are necessary to develop applications to physicsand engineering probl ems. The book includes introductory and advanced concepts in measure and integration, as well as an introduction to Sobolev spaces. The problems presented are nonlinear, with non-convex variational formulation.Notably, the primal global minima may not be attained in some situations, in which cases the solution of the dual problem corresponds to an appropriate weak cluster point of minimizing sequences for the primal one. Indeed, the dualapproach more readily facilitates numerical computations for some of the selected models. While intended primarily for applied mathematicians, the text will also be of interest to engineers, physicists, and other researchers in relatedfields

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:Stochastic Differential Equations, Backward SDEs, Partial Differential Equations [electronic resource]
Author(s): Etienne Pardoux
Aurel Rcanu
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This research monograph presents results to researchers in stochastic calculus, forward and backward stochastic differential equations, connections between diffusion processes and second order partial differential equations(PDEs), and financial mathe matics. It pays special attention to the relations between SDEs/BSDEs and second order PDEs under minimal regularity assumptions, and also extends those results to equations with multivalued coefficients. Theauthors present in particular the theory of ref lected SDEs in the above mentioned framework and include exercises at the end of each chapter. Stochastic calculus and stochastic differential equations (SDEs) were first introduced by K.It in the 1940s, in order to construct the path of diffusion process es (which are continuous time Markov processes with continuous trajectories taking their values in a finite dimensional vector space or manifold), which had beenstudied from a more analytic point of view by Kolmogorov in the 1930s. Since then, this topic has become an important subject of Mathematics and Applied Mathematics, because of its mathematical richness and its importance forapplications in many areas of Physics, Biology, Economics and Finance, where random processes play an increasingly important role. One important aspect is the connection between diffusion processes and linear partial differentialequations of second order, which is in particular the basis for Monte Carlo numerical methods for linear PDEs. Since the pioneering work of Peng and P ardoux in the early 1990s, a new type of SDEs called backward stochastic differentialequations (BSDEs) has emerged. The two main reasons why this new class of equations is important are the connection between BSDEs and semilinear PDEs, and the fact that B SDEs constitute a natural generalization of the famous Black andScholes model from Mathematical Finance, and thus offer a natural mathematical framework for the formulation of many new models in Finan

Title:Locally Convex Spaces [electronic resource]
Author(s): M. Scott Osborne
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:For most practicing analysts who use functional analysis, the restriction to Banach spaces seen in most real analysis graduate texts is not enough for their research. This graduate text, while focusing on locally convextopological vector spaces, is i ntended to cover most of the general theory needed for application to other areas of analysis. Normed vector spaces, Banach spaces, and Hilbert spaces are all examples of classes of locally convexspaces, which is why this is an important topic in function al analysis. While this graduate text focuses on what is needed for applications, it also shows the beauty of the subject and motivates the reader with exercises of varyingdifficulty. Key topics covered include point set topology, topological vector space s, the HahnBanach theorem, seminorms and Frchet spaces, uniform boundedness, and dual spaces. The prerequisite for this text is the Banach spacetheory typically taught in a beginning graduate real analysis course

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book provides a completely revised and expanded version of the previous classic edition General Relativity and Relativistic Astrophysics. In Part I the foundations of general relativity are thoroughly developed, whilePart II is devoted to tests of general relativity and many of its applications. Binary pulsars our best laboratories for general relativity are studied in considerable detail. An introduction to gravitational lensing theory isincluded as well, so as to make the current literature on the subject accessible to readers. Considerable attention is devoted to the study of compact objects, especially to black holes. This includes a detailed derivation of the Kerrsolution, Israels proof of his uniqueness theorem, and a derivation of the b asic laws of black hole physics. Part II ends with Wittens proof of the positive energy theorem, which is presented in detail, together with the requiredtools on spin structures and spinor analysis. In Part III, all of the differential geometric tools req uired are developed in detail. A great deal of effort went into refining and improving the text for the new edition. New material hasbeen added, including a chapter on cosmology. The book addresses undergraduate and graduate students in physics, astrophys ics and mathematics. It utilizes a very well structured approach, which should help it continue to be a standardwork for a modern treatment of gravitational physics. The clear presentation of differential geometry also makes it useful for work on string t heory and other fields of physics, classical as well as quantum

Title:A Bayesian Analysis of QCD Sum Rules [electronic resource]
Author(s): Philipp Gubler
Date:2013
Publisher:Tokyo : Springer Japan : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The author develops a novel analysis method for QCD sum rules (QCDSR) by applying the maximum entropy method (MEM) to arrive at an analysis with less artificial assumptions than previously held. This is a first-time accomplishmentin the field. In thi s thesis, a reformed MEM for QCDSR is formalized and is applied to the sum rules of several channels: the light-quark meson in the vector channel, the light-quark baryon channel with spin and isospin 1/2, andseveral quarkonium channels at both zero and fi nite temperatures. This novel technique of combining QCDSR with MEM is applied to the study of quarkonium in hot matter, which is an important probe of the quark-gluon plasma currentlybeing created in heavy-ion collision experiments at RHIC and LHC

Note:Aimed toward researchers, postgraduate students, and scientists in linear operator theory and mathematical inequalities, this self-contained monograph focuses on numerical radius inequalities for bounded linear operators oncomplex Hilbert spaces for the case of one and two operators. Students at the graduate level will learn some essentials that may be useful for reference in courses in functional analysis, operator theory, differential equations, andquantum computation, to name several. Chapter 1 pr esents fundamental facts about the numerical range and the numerical radius of bounded linear operators in Hilbert spaces. Chapter 2 illustrates recent results obtained concerningnumerical radius and norm inequalities for one operator on a complex Hilbert space, as well as some special vector inequalities in inner product spaces due to Buzano, Goldstein, RyffandClarke as well as some reverse Schwarzinequalities and Grss type inequalities obtained by the author. Chapter 3 presents recent results regarding the norms and the numerical radii of two bounded linear operators. The techniques shown in this chapterare elementary butelegant and may be accessible to undergraduate students with a working knowledge of operator theory.A number of vector inequalities in inner product spaces as well as inequalities for means of nonnegative real numbers are alsoemployed in this chapter. All the results presented are completely proved and the original references are mentioned

Title:Mathematical Physics [electronic resource] : A Modern Introduction to Its Foundations

Edition:2nd ed. 2013
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The goal of this book is to expose the reader to the indispensable role that mathematics---often very abstract---plays in modern physics. Starting with the notion of vector spaces, the first half of the book develops topics asdiverse as algebras, cla ssical orthogonal polynomials, Fourier analysis, complex analysis, differential and integral equations, operator theory, and multi-dimensional Green's functions. The second half of the book introduces groups,manifolds, Lie groups and their representations , Clifford algebras and their representations, and fiber bundles and their applications to differential geometry and gauge theories. This second edition is a substantial revision of thefirst one with a complete rewriting of many chapters and the addition of new ones, including chapters on algebras, representation of Clifford algebras and spinors, fiber bundles, and gauge theories. The spirit of the first edition,namely the balance between rigor and physical application, has been maintained, as is the abun dance of historical notes and worked out examples that demonstrate the unreasonable effectiveness of mathematics in modern physics.Einstein has famously said, The most incomprehensible thing about nature is that it is comprehensible. What he had in mind w as reiterated in another one of his famous quotes concerning the question of how ... mathematics, beingafter all a product of human thought, is so admirably appropriate to the objects of reality. It is a question that comes to everyone's mind when encoun tering the highly abstract mathematics required for a deep understanding of modernphysics. It is the experience that Eugene Wigner so profoundly described as the unreasonable effectiveness of mathematics in the natural sciences.

Note:There are a wide range of applications in physics and structural mechanics involving domains with singular perturbations of the boundary. Examples include perforated domains and bodies with defects of different types. Theaccurate direct numerical tre atment of such problems remains a challenge. Asymptotic approximations offer an alternative, efficient solution. Greens function is considered here as the main object of study rather than a tool forgenerating solutions of specific boundary value problems. The uniformity of the asymptotic approximations is the principal point of attention. We also show substantial links between Greens functions and solutions of boundary valueproblems for meso-scale structures. Such systems involve a large number of small i nclusions, so that a small parameter, the relative size of an inclusion, may compete with a large parameter, represented as an overall number ofinclusions. The main focus of the present text is on two topics: (a) asymptotics of Greens kernels in domains w ith singularly perturbed boundaries and (b) meso-scale asymptotic approximations of physical fields in non-periodicdomains with many inclusions. The novel feature of these asymptotic approximations is their uniformity with respect to the independent varia bles. This book addresses the needs of mathematicians, physicists and engineers, as well asresearch students interested in asymptotic analysis and numerical computations for solutions to partial differential equations

Title:Hypoelliptic Laplacian and BottChern Cohomology [electronic resource] : A Theorem of RiemannRochGrothendieck in Complex Geometry
Author(s): Jean-Michel Bismut
Date:2013
Publisher:Heidelberg : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Birkhuser

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The book provides the proof of a complex geometric version of a well-known result in algebraic geometry: the theorem of RiemannRochGrothendieck for proper submersions. It gives an equality of cohomology classes inBottChern cohomology, which is a refi nement for complex manifolds of de Rham cohomology. When the manifolds are Khler, our main result is known. A proof can be given using the elliptic Hodge theory of the fibres, its deformationvia Quillen's superconnections, and a version in families of the 'fantastic cancellations' of McKeanSinger in local index theory. In the general case, this approach breaks down because the cancellations do not occur any more.Onetool used in the book is a deformation of the Hodge theory of the fibres to a hypoelliptic Hodge theory, in such a way that the relevant cohomological information is preserved, and 'fantastic cancellations' do occur for thedeformation. The deformed hypoelliptic Laplacian acts on the total space of the relative tangent bundle of the fibres. Whil e the original hypoelliptic Laplacian discovered by the author can be described in terms of the harmonicoscillator along the tangent bundle and of the geodesic flow, here, the harmonic oscillator has to be replaced by a quartic oscillator.Another idea dev eloped in the book is that while classical elliptic Hodge theory is based on theHermitian product on forms, the hypoelliptic theory involves a Hermitian pairing which is a mild modification of intersection pairing. Probabilistic considerations play an imp ortant role, either as a motivation of some constructions,or in the proofs themselves

Note:Quaternion andClifford Fourier and wavelet transformations generalize the classical theory to higher dimensions and are becoming increasingly important in diverse areas of mathematics, physics, computer science and engineering.This edited volume pres ents the state of the art in these hypercomplex transformations. The Clifford algebras unify Hamiltons quaternions with Grassmann algebra. A Clifford algebra is a complete algebra of a vector space and all itssubspaces including the measurement of volumes and dihedral angles between any pair of subspaces. Quaternion and Clifford algebras permit the systematic generalization of many known concepts. This book provides comprehensiveinsights into current developments and applications including their performa nce and evaluation. Mathematically, it indicates where further investigation is required. For instance, attention is drawn to the matrix isomorphisms forhypercomplex algebras, which will help readers to see that software implementations are within our gra sp. It also contributes to a growing unification of ideas and notation across the expanding field of hypercomplex transforms andwavelets. The first chapter provides a historical background and an overview of the relevant literature, and shows how the con tributions that follow relate to each other and to prior work. The book will be a valuable resource forgraduate students as well as for scientists and engineers

Title:Functional Analysis in Asymmetric Normed Spaces [electronic resource]

Publisher:Basel : Springer Basel : Imprint: Birkhuser
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:An asymmetric norm is a positive definite sublinear functional p on a real vector space X. The topology generated by the asymmetric norm p is translation invariant so that the addition is continuous, but the asymmetry of the normimplies that the mult iplication by scalars is continuous only when restricted to non-negative entries in the first argument. The asymmetric dual of X, meaning the set of all real-valued upper semi-continuous linear functionals on X, ismerely a convex cone in the vector space of all linear functionals on X. In spite of these differences, many results from classical functional analysis have their counterparts in the asymmetric case, by taking care of the interplaybetween the asymmetric norm p and its conjugate. Among the positi ve results one can mention: HahnBanach type theorems and separation results for convex sets, KreinMilman type theorems, analogs of the fundamental principles open mapping, closed graph and uniform boundedness theorems an analog of the Schauders theorem o n the compactness of the conjugate mapping. Applications are given to best approximation problems and, as relevant examples, oneconsiders normed lattices equipped with asymmetric norms and spaces of semi-Lipschitz functions on quasi-metric spaces. Since t he basic topological tools come from quasi-metric spaces and quasi-uniform spaces, the first chapter of thebook contains a detailed presentation of some basic results from the theory of these spaces. The focus is on results which are most used in function al analysis completeness, compactness and Baire category which drasticallydiffer from those in metric or uniform spaces. The book is fairly self-contained, the prerequisites being the acquaintance with the basic results in topology and functional analys is, so it may be used for an introduction to thesubject.Since new results, in the focus of current research, are also included, researchers in the area can use it as a reference

Note:The fourth edition of this book continues to deal with a number of mathematical topics that are of great importance in the study of classical econometrics. The major expansion involves a more complete coverage of basic aspects ofmathematics that cont inue to play an increasingly significant role in the literature of econometrics. Thus, the chapter on difference equations has been expanded to include enhanced treatment of lag operators (backward shift operatorsin the statistical literature) that are im portant not only in the context of the dynamic simultaneous equation GLSEM (general linear structural econometric model), but also time series analysis. New features in this edition includechapters on probability theory and the probabilistic basis of clas sical econometrics. There is a lengthy chapter on matrix algebra, which takes the reader from the most elementary aspects to the partitioned inverses, characteristicroots and vectors, symmetric, and orthogonal and positive (semi) definite matrices. The bo ok also covers pseudo-inverses, solutions to systems of linear equations, solutions of vector difference equations with constant coefficients andrandom forcing functions, matrix differentiation, and permutation matrices. Its novel features include an intr oduction to asymptotic expansions, and examples of applications to the general-linear model (regression) and the generallinear structural econometric model (simultaneous equations). Also unique to this edition are two fairly extensive chapters on applicat ions to the GLM (general linear model), GLSEM and time series analysis which treat issues relevantto their underlying theoretical bases, estimation and forecasting. Professor Dhrymes is currently Professor of Economics at Columbia University. Earlier he t aught at Harvard, University of Pennsylvania, University of California at LosAngeles, and Monash University in Australia. He is a fellow of the Econometric Society and the American Statistical Associati

Title:Introduction to Tensor Analysis and the Calculus of Moving Surfaces [electronic resource]

Note:This text is meant to deepen its readers understanding of vector calculus, differential geometry and related subjects in applied mathematics. Designed for advanced undergraduate and graduate students, this text invites itsaudience to take a fresh loo k at previously learned material through the prism of tensor calculus. Once the framework is mastered, the student is introduced to new material which includes differential geometry on manifolds, shapeoptimization, boundary perturbation, and dynamic fluid film equations. Tensor calculus is a powerful tool that combines the geometric and analytical perspectives and enables us to take full advantage of the computational utility ofcoordinate systems. The tensor approach can be of benefit to members of all te chnical sciences including mathematics and all engineering disciplines. If calculus and linear algebra are central to the readers scientific endeavors,tensor calculus is indispensable. The language of tensors, originally championed by Einstein, is as fund amental as the languages of calculus and linear algebra and is one that every technical scientist ought to speak. The tensortechnique, invented at the turn of the 20th century, is now considered classical. Yet, as the author shows, it remains remarkably v ital and relevant. The authors skilled lecturing capabilities are evident by the inclusion ofinsightful examples and a plethora of exercises. A great deal of material is devoted to the geometric fundamentals, the mechanics of change of variables, the prop er use of the tensor notation, and the discussion of the interplaybetween algebra and geometry. The early chapters have many words and few equations. The definition of a tensor comes only in Chapter 6 when the reader is ready for it. While this text main tains a reasonable level of rigor, it takesgreat care to avoid formalizing the subject. The last part of the textbook is devoted to the calculus of moving surfaces. It is the first textboo

Note:Dihedral Fourier Analysis introduces the theory and applications necessary to study experimental data indexed by, or associated with, the points in a dihedral symmetry orbit. This book looks at experimental data and analyticalmodels indexed by certai n dihedral rotations and reversals realized as vector fields. Its particular relevance as a research tool in areas such as optical and molecular biology statisticsappears when formulated within the context ofsymmetry studies, which formally connects algeb raic and statistical reasoning together in one methodology for data summary and inference. Chapter 1 presents an overview of the theory and methods of dihedral analysis. It introduces datasets and examples defining and connecting the algebraic notions of symmetry with those of statistical summaries and inference. Chapter 2 includes the required algebraic aspects and data-analytic results. Chapters 3-6 offer applicationsof the methods presented in the text. This book is intended for data analysts of both t heoretical and applied statistics

Title:Modular Representation Theory of Finite Groups [electronic resource]

Note:Representation theory studies maps from groups into the general linear group of a finite-dimensional vector space. For finite groups the theory comes in two distinct flavours. In the 'semisimple case' (for exampleover the fieldof complex numbers) one can use character theory to completely understand the representations. This by far is not sufficient when the characteristic of the field divides the order of the group. Modular representation theory of finitegroups comprises this second situation. Many additional tools are needed for this case. To mention some, there is the systematic use of Grothendieck groups leading to the Cartan matrix and the decomposition matrix of the group as wellas Green's direct analysis of indecomposable representations. Ther e is also the strategy of writing the category of all representations as the direct product of certain subcategories, the so-called 'blocks' of the group. Brauer's workthen establishes correspondences between the blocks of the original group and blocks of certain subgroups the philosophy being that one is thereby reduced to a simpler situation. In particular, one can measure how nonsemisimple acategory a block is by the size and structure of its so-called 'defect group'. All these concepts are made explic it for the example of the special linear group of two-by-two matrices over a finite prime field. Although the presentationis strongly biased towards the module theoretic point of view an attempt is made to strike a certain balance by also showing the read er the group theoretic approach. In particular, in the case of defect groups a detailed proof of theequivalence of the two approaches is given. This book aims to familiarize students at the masters level with the basic results, tools, and techniques of a beautiful and important algebraic theory. Some basic algebra together with thesemisimple case are assumed to be known, although all facts to be used are restated (without proofs) in the text. Otherwis

Title:New Foundations in Mathematics [electronic resource] : The Geometric Concept of Number

Note:The first book of its kind, New Foundations in Mathematics: The Geometric Concept of Number uses geometric algebra to present an innovative approach to elementary and advanced mathematics. Geometric algebra offers a simple androbust means of expressi ng a wide range of ideas in mathematics, physics, and engineering. In particular, geometric algebra extends the real number system to include the concept of direction, which underpins much of modern mathematicsand physics. Much of the material presented h as been developed from undergraduate courses taught by the author over the years in linear algebra, theory of numbers, advanced calculus and vector calculus, numerical analysis, modernabstract algebra, and differential geometry. The principal aim of this book is to present these ideas in a freshly coherent and accessible manner. The book begins with a discussion of modular numbers (clock arithmetic) and modularpolynomials. This leads to the idea of a spectral basis, the complex and hyperbolic numbers, and finally to geometric algebra, which lays the groundwork for the remainder of the text. Many topics are presented in a new light,including: * vector spaces and matrices * structure of linear operators and quadratic forms * Hermitian inner product spaces * geometry of moving planes * spacetime of special relativity * classical integration theorems *differential geometry of curves and smooth surfaces * projective geometry * Lie groups and Lie algebras. Exercises with selected solutions are provided, and cha pter summaries are included to reinforce concepts as they are covered.Links to relevant websites are often given, and supplementary material is available on the authors website. New Foundations in Mathematics will be of interest to undergraduate and grad uate students of mathematics and physics whoare looking for a unified treatment of many important geometric ideas arising in these subjects at all levels. The material can also serve as a s

Title:An Introduction to the Regularity Theory for Elliptic Systems, Harmonic Maps and Minimal Graphs [electronic resource]

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This volume deals with the regularity theory for elliptic systems. We may find the origin of such a theory in two of the problems posed by David Hilbert in his celebrated lecture delivered during the International Congress ofMathematicians in 1900 in Paris: 19th problem: Are the solutions to regular problems in the Calculus of Variations always necessarily analytic? 20th problem: does any variational problem have a solution, provided that certainassumptions regarding the given boundary conditions are satisfied, and provided that the notion of a solution is suitably extended? During the last century these two problems have generated a great deal of work, usually referred to asregularity theory, which makes this topic quite relevant in many fields and still very active for research. However, the purpose of this volume, addressed mainly to students, is much more limited. We aim to illustrate only some of thebasic ideas and techniques introduced in this context, confining ourselves to important but simpl e situations and refraining from completeness. In fact some relevant topics are omitted. Topics include: harmonic functions, directmethods, Hilbert space methods and Sobolev spaces, energy estimates, Schauder and Lp-theory both with and without potential theory, including the Calderon-Zygmund theorem, Harnack's and De Giorgi-Moser-Nash theorems in the scalar caseand partial regularity theorems in the vector valued case energy minimizing harmonic maps and minimal graphs in codimension 1 and greater than 1. In this second deeply revised edition we also included the regularity of 2-dimensionalweakly harmonic maps, the partial regularity of stationary harmonic maps, and their connections with the case p=1 of theLp theory, including the celebrated results of W ente and of Coifman-Lions-Meyer-Semmes

Note:This book is an edited volume, the goal of which is to provide an overview of the current state-of-the-art in statistical methods applied to problems in structural bioinformatics (and in particular protein structure prediction,simulation, experimenta l structure determination and analysis). It focuses on statistical methods that have a clear interpretation in the framework of statistical physics, rather than ad hoc, black box methods based on neural networksor support vector machines. In addition, the emphasis is on methods that deal with biomolecular structure in atomic detail. The book is highly accessible, and only assumes background knowledge on protein structure, with a minimum ofmathematical knowledge. Therefore, the book includes introductory c hapters that contain a solid introduction to key topics such as Bayesian statistics and concepts in machine learning and statistical physics

Note:When scientists analyze datasets in a search for underlying phenomena, patterns or causal factors, their first step is often an automatic or semi-automatic search for structures in the data. Of these feature-extraction methods,topological ones stand out due to their solid mathematical foundation. Topologically defined structuresas found in scalar, vector and tensor fieldshave proven their merit in a wide range of scientific domains, and scientists havefound them to be revealing in subjects such as ph ysics, engineering, and medicine. Full of state-of-the-art research and contemporary hot topics in the subject, this volume is a selection of peer-reviewed papers originally presentedat the fourth Workshop on Topology-Based Methods in Data Analysis and V isualization, TopoInVis 2011, held in Zurich, Switzerland. The workshop brought together many of the leading lights in the field for a mixture of formalpresentations and discussion. One topic currently generating a great deal of interest, and explored in several chapters here, is the search for topological structures in time-dependent flows, and their relationship with Lagrangiancoherent structures. Contributors also focus on discrete topologies of scalar and vector fields, and on persistence-based simpli fication, among other issues of note. The new research results included in this volume relate to all threekey areas in data analysistheory, algorithms and applications

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This volume is devoted to the dynamics and diagnostics of solar magnetic fields and plasmas in the Suns atmosphere. Five broad areas of current research in Solar Physics are presented: (1) New techniques for incorporatingradiation transfer effects in to three-dimensional magnetohydrodynamic models of the solar interior and atmosphere, (2) The connection between observed radiation processes occurring during flares and the underlying flare energy releaseand transport mechanisms, (3) The global balance o f forces and momenta that occur during flares, (4) The data-analysis and theoretical tools needed to understand and assimilate vector magnetogram observations and (5) Connecting flareand CME phenomena to the topological properties of the magnetic field in the Solar Atmosphere. The role of the Suns magnetic field is a major emphasis of this book, which was inspired by a workshop honoring Richard C. (Dick)Canfield. Dick has been making profound contributions to these areas of research over a long and produc tive scientific career. Many of the articles in this topical issue were first presented as talks during this workshop andrepresent substantial original work. The workshop was held 9 11 August 2010, at the Center Green campus of the National Center for At mospheric Research (NCAR) in Boulder, Colorado. This volume is aimed at researchers and graduatestudents active in solar physics, solar-terrestrial physics and magneto-hydrodynamics. Previously published in Solar Physics journal, Vol. 277/1, 2012
