Title  Fully Chaotic Maps and Broken Time Symmetry 
Author(s)  Driebe, Dean J 
Publication  Dordrecht, Springer Netherlands, 1999. 
Description  X, 166 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  I am very pleased and privileged to write a short foreword for the monograph of Dean Driebe: Fully Chaotic Maps and Broken Time Symmetry. Despite the technical title this book deals with a problem of fundamental importance. To appreciate its meaning we have to go back to the tragic struggle that was initiated by the work of the great theoretical physicist Ludwig Boltzmann in the second half of the 19th century. Ludwig Boltzmann tried to emulate in physics what Charles Darwin had done in biology and to formulate an evolutionary approach in which past and future would play different roles. Boltzmann's work has lead to innumerable controversies as the laws of classical mechanics (as well as the laws of quan?? tum mechanics) as traditionally formulated imply symmetry between past and future. As is well known, Albert Einstein often stated that "Time is an illusion". Indeed, as long as dynamics is associated with trajectories satisfy?? ing the equations of classical mechanics, explaining irreversibility in terms of trajectories appears, as Henri Poincare concluded, as a logical error. After a long struggle, Boltzmann acknowledged his defeat and introduced a probabil?? ity description in which all microscopic states are supposed to have the same a priori probability. Irreversibility would then be due to the imperfection of our observations associated only with the "macroscopic" state described by temperature, pressure and other similar parameters. Irreversibility then appears devoid of any fundamental significance. However today this position has become untenable

Title  Computational Techniques for Fluid Dynamics 2 : Specific Techniques for Different Flow Categories 
Author(s)  Fletcher, Clive A.J 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 1991. 
Description  XIV, 494 p. 3 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  The purpose and organisation of this book are described in the preface to the first edition (1988). In preparing this edition minor changes have been made, par?? ticularly to Chap. 1 (Vol. 1) to keep it reasonably current, and to upgrade the treatment of specific techniques, particularly in Chaps. 1214 and 1618. How?? ever, the rest of the book (Vols. 1 and 2) has required only minor modification to clarify the presentation and to modify or replace individual problems to make them more effective. The answers to the problems are available in Solutions Manual jor Computational Techniques jor Fluid Dynamics by K. Srinivas and C. A. J. Fletcher, published by SpringerVerlag, Heidelberg, 1991. The computer programs have also been reviewed and tidied up. These are available on an IBM?? compatible floppy disc direct from the author. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the many readers for their usually generous comments about the first edition and particularly those readers who went to the trouble of drawing specific errors to my attention. In this revised edi?? tion considerable effort has been made to remove a number of minor errors that had found their way into the original. I express the hope that no errors remain but welcome communication that will help me improve future editions. In preparing this revised edition I have received considerable help from Dr. K

Title  Quantum Field Theory: Perspective and Prospective 
Author(s)  DewittMorette, C??cile;Zuber, JeanBernard 
Publication  Dordrecht, Springer Netherlands, 1999. 
Description  XX, 403 p. 24 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  It has been said that `String theorists talk to string theorists and everyone else wonders what they are saying'. This book will be a great help to those researchers who are challenged by modern quantum field theory. Quantum field theory experienced a renaissance in the late 1960s. Here, participants in the Les Houches sessions of 1970/75, now key players in quantum field theory and its many impacts, assess developments in their field of interest and provide guidance to young researchers challenged by these developments, but overwhelmed by their complexities. The book is not a textbook on string theory, rather it is a complement to Polchinski's book on string theory. It is a survey of current problems which have their origin in quantum field theory

Title  Weber???s Electrodynamics 
Author(s)  Assis, Andre Koch Torres 
Publication  Dordrecht, Springer Netherlands, 1994. 
Description  XIV, 274 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  "Great progress has been made in electrical science, chiefly in Germany, by cultivators of the theory of action at a distance. The valuable electrical measurements of W. Weber are interpreted by him according to this theory, and the electromagnetic speculation which was originated by Gauss, and carried on by Weber, Riemann, F. and C. Neumann, Lorenz, etc. , is founded on the theory of action at a distance, but depending either directly on the relative velocity of the particles, or on the gradual propagation of something, whether potential or force, from the one particle to the other. The great success which these eminent men have attained in the application of mathematics to electrical phenomena, gives, as is natural, additional weight to their theoretical speculations, so that those who, as students of electricity, turn to them as the greatest authorities in mathematical electricity, would probably imbibe, along with their mathematical methods, their physical hypothesis. These physical hypotheses, however, are entirely alien from the way of looking at things which I adopt, and one object which I have in view is that some of those who wish to study electricity may, by reading this treatise, come to see that there is another way of treating the subject, which is no less fitted to explain the phenomena, and which, though in some parts it may appear less definite, corresponds, as I think, more faithfuHy with our actual knowledge, both in what it affirms and in what it leaves undecided

Title  Dynamics, Bifurcation and Symmetry : New Trends and New Tools 
Author(s)  Chossat, Pascal 
Publication  Dordrecht, Springer Netherlands, 1994. 
Description  XV, 354 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book collects contributions to the conference" Dynamics, Bifurcation and Symmetry, new trends and new tools", which was held at the Institut d'Etudes Sci?? entifiques de Cargese (France), September 39, 1993. The first aim of this conference was to gather and summarize the work of the European Bifurcation Theory Group after two years of existence (the EBTG links european laboratories in five countries via an EC grant). Thanks to a NATO ARW grant, the conference developed into an international meeting on bifurcation theory and dynamical systems, with the partic?? ipation of leading specialists not only from Europe but also from overseas countries (Canada, USA, South America). It was a great satisfaction to notice the active, and quite enthusiastic participation of many young scientists. This is reflected in the present book for which many contributors are PhD students or postdoc researchers. Although several "big" themes (bifurcation with symmetry, low dimensional dynam?? ics, dynamics in EDP's, applications, . . . ) are present in these proceedings, we have divided the book into corresponding parts. In fact these themes overlap in most contributions, which seems to reflect a general tendancy in nonlinear science. I am very pleased to thank for their support the NATO International Exchange Scientific Program as well as the EEC Science Program, which made possible the suc?? cess of this conference

Title  Nonstandard Analysis : Theory and Applications 
Author(s)  Arkeryd, Leif O;Cutland, Nigel J;Henson, C. Ward 
Publication  Dordrecht, Springer Netherlands, 1997. 
Description  XIV, 366 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  1 More than thirty years after its discovery by Abraham Robinson , the ideas and techniques of Nonstandard Analysis (NSA) are being applied across the whole mathematical spectrum,as well as constituting an im?? portant field of research in their own right. The current methods of NSA now greatly extend Robinson's original work with infinitesimals. However, while the range of applications is broad, certain fundamental themes re?? cur. The nonstandard framework allows many informal ideas (that could loosely be described as idealisation) to be made precise and tractable. For example, the real line can (in this framework) be treated simultaneously as both a continuum and a discrete set of points; and a similar dual ap?? proach can be used to link the notions infinite and finite, rough and smooth. This has provided some powerful tools for the research mathematician  for example Loeb measure spaces in stochastic analysis and its applications, and nonstandard hulls in Banach spaces. The achievements of NSA can be summarised under the headings (i) explanation  giving fresh insight or new approaches to established theories; (ii) discovery  leading to new results in many fields; (iii) invention  providing new, rich structures that are useful in modelling and representation, as well as being of interest in their own right. The aim of the present volume is to make the power and range of appli?? cability of NSA more widely known and available to research mathemati?? cians

Title  Nonlocality in Quantum Physics 
Author(s)  Grib, Andrey Anatoljevich;Rodrigues Jr., Waldyr Alves 
Publication  New York, NY, Springer US, 1999. 
Description  X, 225 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  The nonlocality phenomena exhibited by entangled quantum systems are certainly one of the most extraordinary aspects of quantum theory. This book discusses this phe?? nomenon according to several points of view, i.e., according to different interpretations of the mathematics of the quantum formalism. The several interpretations of the Copenhagen interpretation, the many worlds, the de BroglieBohm, quantum logics, the decohering by the environment approach and the histories approach interpretations are scrutinized and criticized in detail. Recent results on cryptography, quantum bit commitment, quantum erasers and teleportation are also presented and discussed. In preparing the book we benefited from discussions with many people, but we would like, in particular, to express our gratitude to Professor B. d'Espagnat for his useful comments and suggestions. We are grateful also to Ms. L. Gentry EIDash for the English revision, to Dr. 1. E. Maiorino for the production of the figures and a careful reading of the manuscript, and for the statI of Plenum for advice and for having produced a nice book. Finally, the authors thank FAPESP (contract no. I 996126570) for a grant making this book possible. A. A. ORIB AND W. A. RODRIGUES, JR
