TitleComputation and its limits
Author(s)Paul Cockshott;Lewis M. Mackenzie;Greg Michaelson
PublicationOxford, Oxford University Press, 2015.
Descriptionvi, 239p.
Abstract NoteComputation and its Limits is an innovative cross-disciplinary investigation of the relationship between computing and physical reality. It begins by exploring the mystery of why mathematics is so effective in science and seeks to explain this in terms of the modelling of one part of physical reality by another. Going from the origins of counting to the most blue-skies proposals for novel methods of computation, the authors investigate the extent to which the laws of nature and of logic constrain what we can compute. In the process they examine formal computability, the thermodynamics of computation, and the promise of quantum computing.

TitleQuantum state transfer and network engineering
Author(s)Georgios M. Nikolopoulos (ed.);Igor Jex (ed.)
Description1 online resource (x, 250 pages) : illustrations (some color)
Abstract NoteFaithful communication is a necessary precondition for large-scale quantum information processing and networking, irrespective of the physical platform. Thus, the problems of quantum-state transfer and quantum-network engineering have attracted enormous interest over the last years, and constitute one of the most active areas of research in quantum information processing. The present volume introduces the reader to fundamental concepts and various aspects of this exciting research area, including links to other related areas and problems. The implementation of state-transfer schemes and the engineering of quantum networks are discussed in the framework of various quantum optical and condensed matter systems, emphasizing the interdisciplinary character of the research area. Each chapter is a review of theoretical or experimental achievements on a particular topic, written by leading scientists in the field. The volume aims at both newcomers as well as experienced researchers

TitleInvariant manifolds for physical and chemical kinetics
Author(s)A.N. Gorban;I.V. Karlin
PublicationBerlin, Springer, 2005.
Description1 online resource (xviii, 495 p.) : ill
Abstract Note"By bringing together various ideas and methods for extracting the slow manifolds the authors show that it is possible to establish a more macroscopic description in nonequilibrium systems. The book treats slowness as stability. A unifying geometrical viewpoint of the thermodynamics of slow and fast motion enables the development of reduction techniques, both analytical and numerical."--Jacket
Contents NoteThe source of examples -- Invariance equation in differential form -- Film extension of the dynamics : slowness as stability -- Entropy, quasiequilibrium, and projectors field -- Newton method with incomplete linearization -- Quasi-chemical representation -- Hydrodynamics from Grad's equations : what can we learn from exact solutions? -- Relaxation methods -- Method of invariant grids -- Method of natural projector -- Geometry of irreversibility : the film of nonequilibrium states -- Slow invariant manifolds for open systems -- Dimension of attractors estimation -- Accuracy estimation and post-processing in invariant manifolds construction
