Title: | Probability on Compact Lie Groups [electronic resource] |
Author(s): |
David Applebaum |
Date: | 2014 |
Publisher: | Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | Probability theory on compact Lie groups deals with the interaction between chance and symmetry, a beautiful area of mathematics of great interest in its own sake but which is now also finding increasing applicationsin statistics and engineering (par ticularly with respect to signal processing). The author gives a comprehensive introduction to some of the principle areas of study, with an emphasis on applicability. The most important topicspresented are: the study of measures via the non-commutative F ourier transform, existence and regularity of densities, properties of random walks and convolution semigroups of measures, and the statistical problem of deconvolution. Theemphasis on compact (rather than general) Lie groups helps readers to get acquaint ed with what is widely seen as a difficult field but which is also justified by the wealth of interesting results at this level and the importance ofthese groups for applications. The book is primarily aimed at researchers working in probability, stochast ic analysis and harmonic analysis on groups. It will also be of interest to mathematicians working in Lie theory and physicists,statisticians and engineers who are working on related applications. A background in first year graduate level measure theoreti c probability and functional analysis is essential a background in Lie groups and representation theory iscertainly helpful but the first two chapters also offer orientation in these subjects |

Note: | Dealing with Uncertainties is an innovative monograph that lays special emphasis on the deductive approach to uncertainties and on the shape of uncertainty distributions. This perspective has the potential for dealing with theuncertainty of a single data point and with sets of data that have different weights. It is shown that the inductive approach that is commonly used to estimate uncertainties is in fact not suitable for these two cases. The approachthat is used to understand the nature of uncerta inties is novel in that it is completely decoupled from measurements. Uncertainties which are the consequence of modern science provide a measure of confidence both in scientific data andin information in everyday life. Uncorrelated uncertainties and corr elated uncertainties are fully covered and the weakness of using statistical weights in regression analysis is discussed. The text is abundantly illustrated withexamples and includes more than 150 problems to help the reader master the subject |

Title: | LEP - The Lord of the Collider Rings at CERN 1980-2000 [electronic resource] : The Making, Operation and Legacy of the World's Largest Scientific Instrument |

Note: | Housed by a 4 m diameter tunnel of 27 km circumference, with huge underground labs and numerous surface facilities, and set up with a precision of 0.1 mm per kilometer, the Large Electron-Positron Collider (LEP) was not only thelargest but also one o f the most sophisticated scientific research instrument ever created by Man. Located at CERN, near Geneva, LEP was built during the years 1983 - 1989, was operational until 2000, and corroborated the standardmodel of particle physics through continous hig h precision measurements. The Author, director-general of CERN during the crucial period of the construction of LEP, recounts vividly the convoluted decision-making and technicalimplementation processes - the tunnel alone being a highly challenging geo- a nd civil engineering project - and the subsequent extremely fruitful period of scientific research. Finally he describes the difficult decision to close downLEP, at a time when the discovery of the Higgs boson seemed within reach. LEP was eventually disma ntled in 2000, enabling the tunnel to be reused for building the next generation machine, the much more powerful Large Hadron Collider(LHC), an upgrade then called LEP3 and foreseen from the beginning. It became operational just as this account was being completed. Written by the main protagonist responsible for making LEP a reality, this is the definitive insidestory of a remarkable machine and the many thousands of scientists and engineers from around the world, whose efforts contributed to the new know ledge it produced |

Note: | This book provides a comprehensive account of the scientific results on high-redshift galaxies accumulated during the past ten years. Apart from summarizing and critically discussing the wealth of observational data, theobservational methods which ma de it possible to study these very distant and extremely faint objects are described in detail. Moreover, the technical feasibilities and physical limitations for existing and for future ground-based andspace-based telescopes are discussed. Thus, apart fr om summarizing the knowledge accumulated so far, the book is designed as a tool for planning future observational and instrumental programs and projects. In view of the potentialimportance of the observational results of the high-redshift universe for bas ic physics the book is written for astronomers as well as for physicists without prior astronomical knowledge. For this purpose it contains introductorychapters describing the basic concepts and notations used in modern astronomy and a brief overview of t he present knowledge of the local universe. The individual chapters provide detailed information, summaries and references on allimportant aspects and problems pertaining to the subject. The objective of the book is therefore to provide a thorough introdu ction to the topic for interested researchers. Students interested in extragalactic astronomy will findimportant information not (yet) available in standard academic texts. The book will also be a valuable companion text for special lectures on the high-r edshift universe and cosmic evolution. And it will be an important tool forresearch students starting a thesis in the field of extragalactic astronomy and observational cosmology |

Note: | Long-baseline interferometry has been traditionally regarded as a very technical method with a limited number of applications. At the turn of the millennium, with the introduction of large community-oriented facilities such as theVLTI, we are seeing a transformation into a major astronomical technique, with a corresponding dramatic increase in the number of publications. This book marks this transition, by providing a wide and deep insight into a large numberof diverse and compelling results recently obtained by long-baseline interferometers. It also provides an insight into concepts which form the basis of future instruments and further developments in this technique |

Note: | All measurements of physical quantities are affected by uncertainty. Understanding the origin of uncertainty, evaluating its extent and suitably taking it into account in data analysis is essential for assessing the degree ofaccuracy of phenomenologi cal relationships and physical laws in both scientific research and technological applications. The Uncertainty in Physical Measurements: An Introduction to Data Analysis in the Physics Laboratory presents anintroduction to uncertainty and to some of the most common procedures of data analysis. This book will serve the reader well by filling the gap between tutorial textbooks and highly specialized monographs. The book is divided intothree parts. The first part is a phenomenological introduction to measur ement and uncertainty: properties of instruments, different causes and corresponding expressions of uncertainty, histograms and distributions, and unifiedexpression of uncertainty. The second part contains an introduction to probability theory, random var iable distributions and basic statistical tools. The third part introduces the readers to some basic data analysis procedures:propagation of uncertainty, least squares fit, chi square test, and confidence intervals to name a few. The introduction of proba bility and statistical tools is made on phenomenological grounds, as a natural response to the problemsarising in the laboratory practice. The author has made a concentrated effort to guarantee both accuracy and clarity through the introduction of a large number of figures and worked examples, many of them taken from laboratoryexperimentations and practice. The book is enriched by the detailed proposal of several simple experiments. Paolo Fornasini is a Professor of Physics at the University of Trento, It aly. He is the author, with Giuseppe Dalba, ofEsercizi di Fisica: Meccanica e Termodinamica (Springer 2006).< |

Note: | This volume contains the proceedings of the last conference ever on integral-field spectroscopy. A daring statement, indicating that integral-field spectroscopy has evolved into a mature technique - a common user utility forastronomical research. Now adays many integral-field spectrographs are installed on 4m to 8-10m class telescopes around the world. While many of those instruments are referred to in this volume, the book is explicitly not dedicated totechnical issues, but is focusing on the scienti fic questions that can be answered with integral-field spectroscopy. These range from solar system studies all the way to high redshift surveys |

Note: | The treatment of time in quantum mechanics is still an important and challenging open question in the foundation of the quantum theory. This book describes the problems, and the attempts and achievements in defining, formalizingand measuring differen t time quantities in quantum theory, such as the parametric (clock) time, tunneling times, decay times, dwell times, delay times, arrival times or jump times. This multi-authored book, written as an introductoryguide for newcomers to the subject, as well as a useful source of information for the expert, covers many of the open questions. After the brief historical overview in the introduction, 12 contributions are devoted to conceptual andtheoretical investigations as well as experimental issues in quantu m-mechanical time measurements. This novel monograph should attract physicists as well as philosophers of science working in the foundations of quantum physics. Forthis revised second edition, all chapters have been updated and extended where appropriate. From the reviews of the first edition: Beginning with a clear introduction to the perplexing issue of the nature of time in quantummechanics, the reader then undertakes a stimulating excursion through a sequence of chapters written by leading researchers . Theory and experiment are nicely balanced, and extensive lists of references accompany each chapter. []Furthermore, the book is enlightening from a sociological perspective to see how 'sides' of these controversies developed and later reconciled as unif ied approaches [].

This progress is not possible without convenient processing of the respective raw data. The book describes the dataprocessing at various leve ls: design of the time and frequency references, characterization of the time and frequency references, applications involving precise time and/or frequency references. The metrological properties stability,accuracy and reproducibility are defined and the processes leading to their characterization are shown. The various aspects of the variance of the frequency fluctuations are discussed and compared and their significance is given. Somemajor applications of the best frequency and time standards are final ly discussed. The way the extreme precision of these sources is used to obtain precise time and position information is shown: - Time scales, used to describe everyhuman and physical activities, such as astronomy, physical laws, etc. - Positioning systems , such as GPS - Very long base interferometry (VLBI) |

Note: | Dealing with Uncertainties proposes and explains a new approach for the analysis of uncertainties. Firstly, it is shown that uncertainties are the consequence of modern science rather than of measurements. Secondly, it stressesthe importance of the d eductive approach to uncertainties. This perspective has the potential of dealing with the uncertainty of a single data point and of data of a set having differing weights. Both cases cannot be dealt with theinductive approach, which is usually taken. Thi s innovative monograph also fully covers both uncorrelated and correlated uncertainties. The weakness of using statistical weights in regression analysis is discussed. Abundant examplesare given for correlation in and between data sets and for the feedbac k of uncertainties on experiment design |

Note: | The search for table-top and repetitive pump schemes during the last decade has been the driving force behind the spectacular advances demonstrated during the 10th International Conference on X-Ray Lasers, organized in 2006 inBerlin. Since 1986, inte rnational experts have gathered every two years at this established conference to discuss the progress in theory, experiment and application of plasma-based soft X-ray lasers. Traditionally, the conferencesessions devoted to complementary and alternative sources of short wavelength radiation, such as high harmonics, XFEL or incoherent X-rays are organized so as to emphasize the role of X-ray laser research in relation to the other shortwavelength sources. Grazing incidence pumping (GRIP) and seeding with high harmonics were the dominant topics of the conference. High repetition rate and portable X-ray lasers were reported to have been applied in metrology andphotochemistry for the first time. The proceedings of this series of conferences constitute a comp rehensive source of reference of the acknowledged state-of the-art in this specific area of laser and plasma physics.

Note: | The expression of uncertainty in measurement is a challenging aspect for researchers and engineers working in instrumentation and measurement because it involves physical, mathematical and philosophical issues. This problem isintensified by the limit ations of the probabilistic approach used by the current standard (GUM). This text is the first to make full use of the mathematical theory of evidence to express the uncertainty in measurements. It gives anoverview of the current standard, then pinpoints and constructively resolves its limitations through its unique approach. The text presents various tools for evaluating uncertainty, beginning with the probabilistic approach andconcluding with the expression of uncertainty using random-fuzzy variables. The exposition is driven by numerous examples. The book is designed for immediate use and application in research and laboratory work. Prerequisites forstudents include courses in statistics and measurement science. Apart from a classroom setting, this bo ok can be used by practitioners in a variety of fields (including applied mathematics, applied probability, electrical and computerengineering, and experimental physics), and by such institutions as the IEEE, ISA, and National Institute of Standards and T echnology |

Title: | Shift-invariant Uniform Algebras on Groups [electronic resource] |

Note: | The central subject of the book - the theory of shift-invariant algebras - is an outgrowth of the established theory of generalized analytic functions. Associated subalgebras of almost periodic functions of real variables and ofbounded analytic funct ions on the unit disc are carried along within the general framework. In particular, it is shown that the algebra of almost periodic functions with spectrum in a semigroup of the reals does not have ahalf-plane-corona if and only if all non-negative semic haracters of the semigroup are monotone decreasing, or equivalently, if and only if the strong hull of the semigroup coincides with the positive half of its group envelope. Underthe same conditions the corresponding subalgebra of bounded analytic function s on the disc has neither a half-plane-corona nor a disc-corona. There are given characterizations of semigroups such that classical theorems of complexanalysis hold on the associated shift-invariant algebras. Bourgain algebras, orthogonal measures, and p rimary ideals of big disc algebras are described. The notion of a harmonic function is extended on compact abelian groups, andcorresponding Fatou-type theorems are proven. Important classes of inductive limits of standard uniform algebras, including Blasc he algebras, are introduced and studied. In particular, it is shown that algebras of hyper-analyticfunctions, associated with families of inner functions, do not have a big-disc-corona |

Note: | The study of nuclear reaction dynamics and thermodynamics with nuclear degrees of freedom has progressed dramatically in the past 20 years, from inclusive charge distributions to exclusive isotopically resolved fragmentobservables and from schematic phenomenological break-up models to sophisticated quantum many-body transport theories. A coherent and quantitative understanding of reaction mechanisms and of the underlying nuclear matter equation ofstate is emerging from the analysis of experimental da ta and from the theoretical modeling of heavy ion reactions. In addition, the accumulated evidence for phenomena related to the liquid-gas phase transition of nuclear matter hastriggered interdisciplinary activities and the transfer of useful methods. In the near future, the availability of radioactive beam facilities is expected to provide unique opportunities for extending our knowledge of the dynamicproperties and the nuclear phase diagram towards exotic nuclear systems with important astrophysical imp lications. The present volume is the outcome of a community-wide review of the field of dynamics and thermodynamics with nucleardegrees of freedom which has been initiated two years ago. The achievements and the outstanding open questions are presented in 26 articles of together 61 authors and collected in six topical sections. All authors are internationallyrecognized experts in their fields |

Title: | Modulated Temperature Differential Scanning Calorimetry [electronic resource] : Theoretical and Practical Applications in Polymer Characterisation |
Author(s): |

Size: | 1 online resource |

Note: | MTDSC provides a step-change increase in the power of calorimetry to characterize virtually all polymer systems including curing systems, blends and semicrystalline polymers. It enables hidden transitions to be revealed,miscibility to be accurately a ssessed, and phases and interfaces in complex blends to be quantified. It also enables crystallinity in complex systems to be measured and provides new insights into melting behaviour. All of this isachieved by a simple modification of conventional DSC. I n 1992 a new calorimetric technique was introduced that superimposed a small modulation on top of the conventional linear temperature program typically used in differentialscanning calorimetry. This was combined with a method of data analysis that enabled the samples response to the linear component of the temperature program to be separated from its response to the periodic component. In this way,for the first time, a signal equivalent to that of conventional DSC was obtained simultaneously with a measur e of the samples heat capacity from the modulation. The new information this provided sparked a revolution in scanningcalorimetry by enabling new insights to be gained into almost all aspects of polymer characteristics. This book provides both a basic and advanced treatment of the theory of the technique followed by a detailed exposition of itsapplication to reacting systems, blends and semicrystalline polymers by the leaders in all of these fields. It is an essential text for anybody interested in calori metry or polymer characterization, especially if they have found thatconventional DSC cannot help them with their problems |

Note: | Thermoluminescence (TL) is a well-established technique widely used in dosimetric and dating applications. Although several excellent reference books exist which document both the theoretical and experimental aspects of TL, thereis a general lack of books that deal with specific numerical and practical aspects of analyzing TL data. Many times the practical details of analyzing numerical TL glow curves and of applying theoretical models are difficult to find inthe published literature. Numerical and P ractical Exercises in Thermoluminescence provides a practical guide for both established researchers and for new graduate students entering the field of TL, and is intended to be used inconjunction with and as a practical supplement to standard textbooks in the field |

Note: | At the turn of the 19th century, Carl Friedrich Gau founded error calculus by predicting the then unknown position of the planet Ceres. Ever since, error calculus has occupied a place at the heart of science. In this book,Grabe illustrates the breakd own of traditional error calculus in the face of modern measurement techniques. Revising Gau error calculus ab initio, he treats random and unknown systematic errors on an equal footing from the outset.Furthermore, Grabe also proposes what may be called w ell defined measuring conditions, a prerequisite for defining confidence intervals that are consistent with basic statistical concepts. The resulting measurement uncertainties are asrobust and reliable as required by modern-day science, engineering and te chnology |

Note: | Electrostatic accelerators are an important and widespread subgroup within the broad spectrum of modern, large particle acceleration devices. They are specifically designed for applications that require high-quality ion beams interms of energy stabil ity and emittance at comparatively low energies (a few MeV). Their ability to accelerate virtually any kind of ion over a continuously tunable range of energies make them a highly versatile tool for investigationsin many research fields including, but not limited to, atomic and nuclear spectroscopy, heavy ion reactions, accelerator mass spectroscopy as well as ion-beam analysis and modification. The book is divided into three parts. The firstpart concisely introduces the field of accelerator technology an d techniques that emphasize their major modern applications. The second part treats the electrostatic accelerator per se: its construction and operational principles aswell as its maintenance. The third part covers all relevant applications in which elect rostatic accelerators are the preferred tool for accelerator-based investigations. Since some topics are common to all types of accelerators,Electrostatic Accelerators will also be of value those more familiar with other types of accelerators |

Note: | Nearly one half of the point-like gamma-ray sources detected by EGRET instrument of the late Compton satellite are still defeating our attempts at identifying them. To establish the origin and nature of these enigmatic sources hasbecome a major probl em of current high-energy astrophysics. The second workshop on Multiwavelength Approach to Unidentified Gamma-ray Sources intends to shed new and fresh light on the problem of the nature of these mysterious sourcesand the objects behind them. The proceedi ngs contain 46 contributed papers in this subject, which cover theoretical models on gamma-ray sources as well as the best multiwavelength strategies for the identification of the promisingcandidates. The topics of this conference also include energetic p henomena ocurring both in galactic and extragalactic scenarios, phenomena that might lead to the appearance of what we have called high-energy unidentified sources. Thebook will be of interest for all active researchers in the high-energy astrophysics and related research areas as well as for scientists and graduate students interested in understanding the recent progress in this field |

Note: | Stars are born and die in clouds of gas and dust, opaque to most types of radiation, but transparent in the infrared. Requiring complex detectors, space missions and cooled telescopes, infrared astronomy is the last branch of thisdiscipline to come o f age. After a very successful sky survey performed in the eighties by the IRAS satellite, the Infrared Space Observatory, in the nineties, brought spectacular advances in the understanding of the processes givingrise to powerful infrared emission by a gr eat variety of celestial sources. Outstanding results have been obtained on the bright comet Hale-Bopp, and in particular of its water spectrum, as well as on the formation, chemistry anddynamics of planetary objects in the solar system. Ideas on the earl y stages of stellar formation and on the stellar initial mass function have been clarified. ISO is the first facility in space able to provide a systematic diagnosisof the physical phenomena and the chemistry in the close environment of pre-main sequence stars, in the interstellar medium, and in the final stages of stellar life, using, among other indicators, molecular hydrogen, ubiquitouscrystalline silicates, water and ices. ISO has dramatically increased our ability to investigate the power production, excitation and fuelling mechanism of galaxies of every type, and has discovered a new very cold dust component ingalaxies. ISO has demonstrated that luminous infrared galaxies were brighter and much more numerous in the past, and that they played a domin ant role in shaping present day galaxies and in producing the cosmic infrared background |

Note: | This volume contains the Lectures and selected participant contributions to the 14th Course of the International School of Cosmic Rays Astrophysics, a NATO Advanced Study Institute. Well known astrophysicists and astronomersdiscuss different aspects of the generation of high energy signals in powerful astrophysical objects concentrating on the production of neutrinos and gamma rays from high energy particle interactions. Recent results from newexperiments and observatories are presented. Topics cover a wide range including the Spitzer infrared observatory, TeV gamma ray observations, dark matter, and neutrino telescopes. The combination of basic knowledge about theproduction of high energy signals with information about the data analysis of ongoing o bservations places the book between the usual levels of a textbook and a conference proceedings. It will give the reader a good introduction to thecurrent field of astroparticle physics, and some of the fascinating astrophysics being addressed |

Title: | Measurement Errors and Uncertainties [electronic resource] : Theory and Practice |

Note: | Measurement Errors and Uncertainties addresses the most important problems that physicists and engineers encounter when estimating errors and uncertainty. Building from the fundamentals of measurement theory, the author developsthe theory of accuracy of measurements and offers a wealth of practical recommendations and examples of applications. This new edition covers a wide range of subjects, including: - Basic concepts of metrology - Measuring instrumentscharacterization, standardization and calibra tion -Estimation of errors and uncertainty of single and multiple measurements - Modern probability-based methods of estimating measurement uncertainty With this new edition, the authorcompletes the development of the new theory of indirect measurements. This theory provides more accurate and efficient methods for processing indirect measurement data. It eliminates the need to calculate the correlation coefficient -a stumbling block in measurement data processing - and offers for the first time a way to o btain the confidence intervals. In other words, this new theory provides means to calculate a well-grounded estimate of measurement uncertaintyfor this complex but widely used type of measurements. Acclaim for previous editions: Extremely useful to metrol ogists and to anyone interested in measurement errors (MEASUREMENT SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY) I suggest that everytechnical library should own a copy of Measurement Errors. Serious experimentalists whose interests are broad will surely want to examine the bo ok with the intent of buying it. (Applied Mechanics Review) |
