Title:Arnold Sommerfeld [electronic resource] : Science, Life and Turbulent Times 1868-1951
Author(s): Michael Eckert

Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Arnold Sommerfeld (1868-1951) belongs with Max Planck (1858-1947), Albert Einstein (1879-1955) and Niels Bohr (1885-1962) among the founders of modern theoretical physics, a science that developed into a budding discipline duringhis lifetime. Sommerf eld witnessed many of the most dramatic scientific, cultural and political events of this era. His correspondence with his family offers a vivid testament to the challenges and joys of a life in science. Thisbiography attempts to reconstruct Sommerfelds l ife and work not only from the perspective of his achievements in theoretical physics but also with the goal of portraying the career of a scientist within the social and politicalenvironment in which it evolved. It is based to a large extent on Sommerfel ds voluminous correspondence, which sheds light both on his private and scientific life. Furthermore, it provides an authentic view on the circumstances thatshaped Sommerfelds career in different places Knigsberg, Gttingen, Clausthal, Aachen, Munich and in different institutional and disciplinary settings mineralogy, mathematics, engineering, physics. Although thisbiography is not a study of Sommerfelds school, it also renders transparent what made this group of physicists so unique and gave its founde r the aura of a charismatic teacher. This becomes particularly evident in the reverence withwhich he was received by his hosts during his travels all over the world travels that Sommerfeld perceived as cultural missions. International politics, personal zeal and scientific interests became closely entangled at suchoccasions. Such an entanglement is by no means uncommon in the history of science but it is rarely observed so persistently as in Sommerfelds case

Title:The Versatile Soliton [electronic resource]
Author(s): Alexandre T Filippov
Date:2010
Publisher:Boston : Birkhuser Boston
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The soliton, a solitary wave impulse preserving its shape and strikingly similar to a particle, is one of the most fascinating and beautiful phenomena in the physics of nonlinear waves. In this classic book, the concept of thesoliton is traced from t he beginning of the last century to modern times, with recent applications in biology, oceanography, solid state physics, electronics, elementary particle physics, and cosmology. The Versatile Soliton is anappropriate title indeed. There is much new histo rical information in the bookThe book is written in a lively language and the physics presented in a clear, pedagogical style. Most of the chapters require only knowledge of fairlyelementary mathematics and the main ideas of soliton physics are well expla ined without mathematics at allYet it contains valuable information and offers a historical review of soliton physics that cannot be found elsewhere.Centaurus In summary, this book is a good elementary treatment of solitons and the related history of phys ics and mathematics, even for readers with little knowledge of advanced mathematics. For readers with the latter knowledge, itis still a good introduction to the physical ideas required for the understanding of solitons prior to the study of more mathemat ical treatments from other sources. Mathematical Reviews This engaging book is an excellentintroduction into the wonderful world of soliton mechanics. Zentralblatt Math No doubt, everyone can get new information from the book. First, the book is strongly recommended to young researchers. In a certain sense, the bookis unique and definitely will find a niche among numerous textbooks on solitons. Physicala

Title:Quantum Mechanics at the Crossroads [electronic resource] : New Perspectives from History, Philosophy and Physics

Alan S Thorndike
Date:2007
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Quantum mechanics is a beautiful, strange and successful theory that originated in the 1920s. The theory, which Niels Bohr regarded as finished and complete, has in the last few decades rapidly developed in unexpected directions.An intense new focus on the stranger aspects of the theory, including entanglement and nonlocality, has resulted in new perceptions of the foundations of quantum mechanics, as well as surprising new exploitations of quantum phenomena.Historians and philosophers of science hav e also renewed their attention to quantum mechanics, opening up its human dimensions and asking searching questions about its meaning. This volume brings together new insights from differentvantage points: Historians of physics, such as J. L. Heilbron phi losophers of science, such as Abner Shimony and Michel Bitbol and quantum physicists, such as Wolfgang Ketterle and Roland Omns, join forces to tackle essentialquestions in quantum mechanics and its interpretation. All the authors have written for a broad readership, and the resulting volume will appeal to everyone wishing to keep abreast of new developments in quantum mechanics, as well asits history and philosophy

Title:Optics in Astrophysics [electronic resource]
Author(s): Renaud Foy
Franoise Claude Foy
Date:2005
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Astrophysics is facing challenging aims such as deep cosmology at redshift higher than 10 to constrain cosmology models, or the detection of exoplanets, and possibly terrestrial exoplanets, and several others. It requiresunprecedented ambitious R&D p rograms, which have definitely to rely on a tight cooperation between astrophysics and optics communities. The book addresses most of the most critical interdisciplinary domains where they interact, orwhere they will do. A first need is to collect more li ght, i.e. telescopes still larger than the current 8-10 meter class ones. Decametric, and even hectometric, optical (from UV to IR wavelengths) telescopes are being studied. Whereasup to now the light collecting surface of new telescopes was approximately 4 times that of the previous generation, now this factor is growing to 10 to 100. This quantum leap urges to implement new methods or technologies developed inthe optics community, both in academic labs and in the industry. Given the astrophysical goals and technological constraints, new generation adaptive optics with a huge number of actuators and laser guide stars devices have to bedeveloped, from theoretical bases to experimental works. Two other newcomers in observational astrophysics are interferom etric arrays of optical telescopes and gravitational wave detectors. Up-to-date reviews of detectors and ofspectrographs are given, as well as forefront R&D in the field of optical coatings and of guided optics. Possible new ways to handle photons are als o addressed, based on quantum physics. More and more signal processing algorithms are apart and parcel of any modern instrumentation. Thus finally the book gives two reviews about wavefront processing and about image restoration and deconvolution algorith ms for ill conditioned cases
