TitleGauge Theories of the Strong and Electroweak Interaction
Author(s)B??hm, Manfred;Denner, Ansgar;Joos, Hans
PublicationWiesbaden, 1. Imprint: Vieweg+Teubner Verlag 2. Vieweg+Teubner Verlag, 2001.
DescriptionXI, 784 p : online resource
Abstract NoteThe gauge theories for the strong and electroweak interaction have become the Standard Model of particle physics. They realize in a consistent way the requirements of quantum theory, special relativity, and symmetry principles. For the first time, we have a consistent theory of the fundamental interac?? tions that allows for precision calculations for many experiments. The Stan?? dard Model has, up to now, successfully passed all experimental tests. This success establishes the importance of gauge theories, despite the fact that gravity is not included and that the Standard Model is most likely an effec?? tive theory resulting from the low-energy limit of a more fundamental theory. The aim of this book is to present the basic ideas and concepts, the tech?? nical tools, and the predictions of the gauge theories for the fundamental constituents of matter and their interactions: Quantum Chromo dynamics for the strong interaction and the Electroweak Standard Model for the uni?? fied electromagnetic and weak interaction

TitleComputer Speech : Recognition, Compression, Synthesis
Author(s)Schroeder, Manfred R
PublicationBerlin, Heidelberg, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2004.
DescriptionXXXIV, 379 p : online resource
Abstract NoteThe first edition having been sold out, gives me a welcome opportunity to augment this volume by some recent applications of speech research. A new chapter, by Holger Quast, treats speech dialogue systems and natural lan?? guage processing. Dictation programs for word processors, voice dialing for mobile phones, and dialogue systems for air travel reservations, automated banking, and translation over the telephone are at the forefront of human-machine inter?? faces. Spoken language dialogue systems are also invaluable for the physically handicapped. For researchers new to the field, the new chapter (pp. 67-106) provides an overview of fundamental linguistic concepts from phonetics, morphology, syntax, semantics and pragmatics, gramm ars and knowedge representation. Symbolic methodology, such as Norman Chomsky's traditional hierarchy of formal languages is layed out as are statistical approaches to analyze text. Proven tools of language processing are covered in detail, including finite?? state automata, Zipf's law, trees annd parsers. The second part of the new chapter introduces the building blocks of state-of-the-art dialogue systems

TitleWalter Kohn : Personal Stories and Anecdotes Told by Friends and Collaborators
Author(s)Scheffler, Matthias;Weinberger, Peter
PublicationBerlin, Heidelberg, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2003.
DescriptionXVIII, 310 p : online resource
Abstract NoteThis is not a science book, nor even a book about science, although most of the contributors are scientists. It is a book of personal stories about Walter Kohn, a theoretical physicist and winner of half of the 1998 Nobel Prize in Chemistry. Walter Kohn originated and/or refined a number of very important theoretical approaches and concepts in solid-state physics. He is known in particular for Density-Functional Theory. This book represents a kind of "oral history" about him, gathered - in anticipation of his 80th birthday - from former students, collaborators, fellow-scientists, and friends

TitleThe Physics of Skiing : Skiing at the Triple Point
Author(s)Lind, David A;Sanders, Scott P
PublicationNew York, NY, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer New York, 2004.
DescriptionXVIII, 270 p : online resource
Abstract NoteJust over ten years ago when the first drafts of this book were being written, and even more so a few years after that as it was making its way through the publication process, alpine skiing was experiencing what eventually became a complete revolution in equipment and tech?? nique: "shaped" or "parabolic" skis completely took over the market, and even relatively beginning skiers expected to carve graceful turns as they schussed down the slopes. Re-reading our work with an eye to revision, we have been surprised to see how our focus on the physics of skiing in the first edition al?? lowed us to recognize the fundamental importance of what were then quite novel changes in equipment and technique. The essence of the enhancement offered by shaped skis is their greater sidecut radius. Our original discussion (then and now in Chapters 3 and 4) of the crucial role that a ski's sidecut plays in carving a turn caused us to write, for the most part, as if the shaped ski had always been in existence. Sim?? ilarly, our interest in the geometry ofthe sidecut allowed us to discuss snowboards in some detail as well, for the key to their ability to "shred" down the mountain is their deep sidecut

TitleStochastic Numerics for Mathematical Physics
Author(s)Milstein, Grigori Noah;Tretyakov, Michael V
PublicationBerlin, Heidelberg, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2004.
DescriptionXIX, 596 p : online resource
Abstract NoteStochastic differential equations have many applications in the natural sciences. Besides, the employment of probabilistic representations together with the Monte Carlo technique allows us to reduce solution of multi-dimensional problems for partial differential equations to integration of stochastic equations. This approach leads to powerful computational mathematics that is presented in the treatise. The authors propose many new special schemes, some published here for the first time. In the second part of the book they construct numerical methods for solving complicated problems for partial differential equations occurring in practical applications, both linear and nonlinear. All the methods are presented with proofs and hence founded on rigorous reasoning, thus giving the book textbook potential. An overwhelming majority of the methods are accompanied by the corresponding numerical algorithms which are ready for implementation in practice. The book addresses researchers and graduate students in numerical analysis, physics, chemistry, and engineering as well as mathematical biology and financial mathematics

TitleLight Emitting Silicon for Microphotonics
Author(s)Ossicini, Stefano;Pavesi, Lorenzo;Priolo, Francesco
PublicationBerlin, Heidelberg, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2003.
DescriptionXII, 284 p : online resource
Abstract NoteThis book gives a fascinating report on the state-of-the-art in silicon microphotonics and valuable perspective on what we can expect in the near future. The book presents an overview of the current understanding of obtaining light from silicon. It concentrates mainly on low-dimensional silicon structures, like quantum dots, wires and wells, but covers also alternative approaches like porous silicon and the doping of silicon with rare-earth elements. The emphasis is on the experimental and theoretical achievements concerning the optoelectronic properties of confined silicon structures obtained during recent years. Silicon based photonic crystals are in particular considered, and an in-depth discussion of the route towards a silicon laser is presented. Published results are compared with each other and with the work of the authors. This monograph will be useful not only to physicists, chemists, materials scientists, and engineers interested to the field of microphotonics, but also to graduate students

TitleQuantum Information with Continuous Variables
Author(s)Braunstein, S.L;Pati, A.K
PublicationDordrecht, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer Netherlands, 2003.
Description440 p. 43 illus : online resource
Abstract NoteQuantum information may sound like science fiction but is, in fact, an active and extremely promising area of research, with a big dream: to build a quantum computer capable of solving problems that a classical computer could not even begin to handle. Research in quantum information science is now at an advanced enough stage for this dream to be credible and well-worth pursuing. It is, at the same time, too early to predict how quantum computers will be built, and what potential technologies will eventually strike gold in their ability to manipulate and process quantum information. One direction that has reaped many successes in quantum information processing relies on continuous variables. This area is bustling with theoretical and experimental achievements, from continuous-variable teleportation, to in-principle demonstrations of universal computation and efficient error correction. Now the time has come to compile some of the major results into one volume. In this book the leading researchers of the field present up-to-date developments of continuous-variable quantum information. This book is organized to suit many reader levels with introductions to every topic and in-depth discussions of theoretical and experimental results

TitleA History of the Ideas of Theoretical Physics : Essays on the Nineteenth and Twentieth Century Physics
Author(s)D'Agostino, S
PublicationDordrecht, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer Netherlands, 2000.
DescriptionXVIII, 382 p : online resource
Abstract NoteThis book presents a perspective on the history of theoretical physics over the past two hundreds years. It comprises essays on the history of pre-Maxwellian electrodynamics, of Maxwell's and Hertz's field theories, and of the present century's relativity and quantum physics. A common thread across the essays is the search for and the exploration of themes that influenced significant con?? ceptual changes in the great movement of ideas and experiments which heralded the emergence of theoretical physics (hereafter: TP). The fun. damental change involved the recognition of the scien?? tific validity of theoretical physics. In the second half of the nine?? teenth century, it was not easy for many physicists to understand the nature and scope of theoretical physics and of its adept, the theoreti?? cal physicist. A physicist like Ludwig Boltzmann, one of the eminent contributors to the new discipline, confessed in 1895 that, "even the formulation of this concept [of a theoretical physicist] is not entirely without difficulty". 1 Although science had always been divided into theory and experiment, it was only in physics that theoretical work developed into a major research and teaching specialty in its own right. 2 It is true that theoretical physics was mainly a creation of tum?? of-the century German physics, where it received full institutional recognition, but it is also undeniable that outstanding physicists in other European countries, namely, Ampere, Fourier, and Maxwell, also had an important part in its creation
