Title  The Enigma of Probability and Physics 
Author(s)  Mayants, L 
Publication  Dordrecht, Springer Netherlands, 1984. 
Description  XX, 374 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  Lazar Mayants is a recent Russian emigre noted for his work in theoretical physics. He was previously a professor at several universities of the Soviet Union and a distinguished member of the Academy of Sciences of the U.S.S.R, where he worked for about 30 years. In this book he presents a unique, extremely detailed, and embracive version of a subject that has suffered for a long time from numerous internal imperfections. His approach is new and original, the material covered features not only the foundations of the science of probability but also most of its applications, including statistical and quantum mechanics. The key methodolOgical principle underlying the book is of extraordinary significance and deserves special attention. The treatment excels in thoroughness of presentation, in its fulness of mathe?? matical detail and the abundance of physical examples. The book is intended for a wide range of people interested in probability and its connection with modern science. It is written as a text for advanced students, and I predict that a reader who masters all its contents will become an expert in the subject of both prob?? ability and its physical implications, while enjoying its understanding and use. HENRY MARGENAU Veritas nihil veretur nisi abscondi (truth 'What tremendously easy riddles you ask!' Humpty Dumpty growled out. fears nothing except being hidden). Latin proverb Lewis Carroll, Through the Looking Glass, Chap. 6. Preface The history of producing this book is rather complicated and not quite usual

Title  Maximum Entropy and Bayesian Methods : Boise, Idaho, USA, 1997 Proceedings of the 17th International Workshop on Maximum Entropy and Bayesian Methods of Statistical Analysis 
Author(s)  Erickson, G;Rychert, Joshua T;Smith, C.R 
Publication  Dordrecht, Springer Netherlands, 1998. 
Description  IX, 302 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  This volume has its origin in the Seventeenth International Workshop on Maximum Entropy and Bayesian Methods, MAXENT 97. The workshop was held at Boise State University in Boise, Idaho, on August 4 8, 1997. As in the past, the purpose of the workshop was to bring together researchers in different fields to present papers on applications of Bayesian methods (these include maximum entropy) in science, engineering, medicine, economics, and many other disciplines. Thanks to significant theoretical advances and the personal computer, much progress has been made since our first Workshop in 1981. As indicated by several papers in these proceedings, the subject has matured to a stage in which computational algorithms are the objects of interest, the thrust being on feasibility, efficiency and innovation. Though applications are proliferating at a staggering rate, some in areas that hardly existed a decade ago, it is pleasing that due attention is still being paid to foundations of the subject. The following list of descriptors, applicable to papers in this volume, gives a sense of its contents: deconvolution, inverse problems, instrument (pointspread) function, model comparison, multi sensor data fusion, image processing, tomography, reconstruction, deformable models, pattern recognition, classification and group analysis, segmentation/edge detection, brain shape, marginalization, algorithms, complexity, Ockham's razor as an inference tool, foundations of probability theory, symmetry, history of probability theory and computability. MAXENT 97 and these proceedings could not have been brought to final form without the support and help of a number of people

Title  Modern Mathematical Models of Time and their Applications to Physics and Cosmology : Proceedings of the International Conference held in Tucson, Arizona, 11???13 April, 1996 
Author(s)  Tifft, W.G;Cocke, W.J 
Publication  Dordrecht, Springer Netherlands, 1997. 
Description  V, 396 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  The nature of time has long puzzled physicists and philosophers. Time potentially has very fundamental yet unknown properties. In 1993 a new model of multidimensional time was found to relate closely to properties of the cosmological redshift. An international conference was subsequently convened in April 1996 to examine past, current and new concepts of time as they relate to physics and cosmology. These proceedings incorporate 34 reviews and contributed papers from the conference. The major reviews include observational properties of the redshift, alternative cosmologies, critical problems in cosmology, alternative viewpoints and problems in gravitation theory and particle physics, and new approaches to mathematical models of time. Professionals and students with an interest in cosmology and the structure of the universe will find that this book raises critical problems and explores challenging alternatives to classical viewpoints

Title  Probabilistic Methods in Quantum Field Theory and Quantum Gravity 
Author(s)  Damgaard, Poul Henrik;H??ffel, H;Rosenblum, A 
Publication  New York, NY, Springer US, 1990. 
Description  IX, 374 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  From August 21 through August 27, 1989 the Nato Advanced Research Workshop Probabilistic Methods in Quantum Field Theory and Quantum Gravity" was held at l'Institut d'Etudes Scientifiques, Cargese, France. This publication is the Proceedings of this workshop. The purpose of the workshop was to bring together a group of scientists who have been at the forefront of the development of probabilistic methods in Quantum Field Theory and Quantum Gravity. The original thought was to put emphasis on the introduction of stochastic processes in the understanding of Euclidean Quantum Field Theory, with also some discussion of recent progress in the field of stochastic numerical methods. During the final preparation of the meeting we broadened the scope to include all those Euclidean Quantum Field Theory descriptions that make direct reference to concepts from probability theory and statistical mechanics. Several of the main contributions centered around a more rigorous discussion of stochastic processes for the formulation of Euclidean Quantum Field Theory. These rather stringent mathematical approaches were contrasted with the more heuristic stochastic quantization scheme developed in 1981 by Parisi and Wu: Stochastic quan?? tization, its intrinsic BRST structure and stochastic regularization appeared in many disguises and in connection with several different problems throughout the workshop

Title  Scale Invariance, Interfaces, and NonEquilibrium Dynamics 
Author(s)  McKane, Alan;Droz, Michel;Vannimenus, Jean;Wolf, Dietrich 
Publication  New York, NY, Springer US, 1995. 
Description  VIII, 344 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  The NATO Advanced Study Institute on "Scale Invariance, Interfaces and Non?? Equilibrium Dynamics" was held at the Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences in Cambridge, UK from 2030 June 1994. The topics discussed at the Institute were all concerned with the origin and nature of complex structures found far from equilibrium. Examples ranged from reaction?? diffusion systems and hydrodynamics through to surface growth due to deposition. A common theme was that of scale invariance due to the selfsimilarity of the underly?? ing structures. The topics that were covered can be broadly classified as pattern for?? mation (theoretical, computational and experimental aspects), the nonequilibrium dynamics of the growth of interfaces and other manifolds, coarsening phenomena, generic scale invariance in driven systems and the concept of selforganized critical?? ity. The main feature of the Institute was the four onehourIong lectures given each day by invited speakers. In addition to thirtyseven of these lectures, two contributed lectures were also given. The many questions that were asked after the lectures attested to the excitement and interest that the lecturers succeeded in generating amongst the students. In addition to the discussions initiated by lectures, an im?? portant component of the meeting were the poster sessions, where participants were able to present their own work, which took place on three of the afternoons. The list of titles given at the end of these proceedings gives some idea of the range and scope of these posters

Title  Quantum Mechanics in Curved SpaceTime 
Author(s)  Audretsch, Jurgen;de Sabbata, V 
Publication  New York, NY, Springer US, 1990. 
Description  X, 556 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  Quantum mechanics and quantum field theory on one hand and Gravity as a theory of curved spacetime on the other are the two great conc tual schemes of modern theoretical physics. For many decades they have lived peacefully together for a simple reason: it was a coexistence wi out much interaction. There has been the family of relativists and the other family of elementary particle physicists and both sides have been convinced that their problems have not very much to do with the problems of the respective other side. This was a situation which could not last forever, because the two theoretical schemes have a particular structural trait in common: their claim for totality and universality. Namely on one hand all physical theories have to be formulated in a quantum mechanical manner, and on the other hand gravity as curved spacetime influences all processes and vice versa. It was therefore only a question of time that physically relevant domains of application would attract a general int est, which demand a combined application of both theoretical schemes. But it is immediately obvious that such an application of both schemes is  possible if the schemes are taken as they are. Something new is needed which reconciles gravity and quantum mechanics. During the last two de des we are now doing the first steps towards this more general theory and we are confronted with fundamental difficulties

Title  Maximum Entropy and Bayesian Methods Garching, Germany 1998 : Proceedings of the 18th International Workshop on Maximum Entropy and Bayesian Methods of Statistical Analysis 
Author(s)  Linden, Wolfgang von der;Dose, Volker;Fischer, Rainer;Preuss, Roland 
Publication  Dordrecht, Springer Netherlands, 1999. 
Description  XVI, 365 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  In 1978 Edwin T. Jaynes and Myron Tribus initiated a series of workshops to exchange ideas and recent developments in technical aspects and applications of Bayesian probability theory. The first workshop was held at the University of Wyoming in 1981 organized by C.R. Smith and W.T. Grandy. Due to its success, the workshop was held annually during the last 18 years. Over the years, the emphasis of the workshop shifted gradually from fundamental concepts of Bayesian probability theory to increasingly realistic and challenging applications. The 18th international workshop on Maximum Entropy and Bayesian Methods was held in Garching / Munich (Germany) (2731. July 1998). Opening lectures by G. Larry Bretthorst and by Myron Tribus were dedicated to one of th the pioneers of Bayesian probability theory who died on the 30 of April 1998: Edwin Thompson Jaynes. Jaynes revealed and advocated the correct meaning of 'probability' as the state of knowledge rather than a physical property. This inter?? pretation allowed him to unravel longstanding mysteries and paradoxes. Bayesian probability theory, "the logic of science"  as E.T. Jaynes called it  provides the framework to make the best possible scientific inference given all available exper?? imental and theoretical information. We gratefully acknowledge the efforts of Tribus and Bretthorst in commemorating the outstanding contributions of E.T. Jaynes to the development of probability theory

Title  MaximumEntropy and Bayesian Methods in Science and Engineering : Foundations 
Author(s)  Erickson, G;Smith, C.R 
Publication  Dordrecht, Springer Netherlands, 1988. 
Description  X, 314 p. 17 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  This volume has its origin in the Fifth, Sixth and Seventh Workshops on and Bayesian Methods in Applied Statistics", held at "MaximumEntropy the University of Wyoming, August 58, 1985, and at Seattle University, August 58, 1986, and August 47, 1987. It was anticipated that the proceedings of these workshops would be combined, so most of the papers were not collected until after the seventh workshop. Because all of the papers in this volume are on foundations, it is believed that the con?? tents of this volume will be of lasting interest to the Bayesian community. The workshop was organized to bring together researchers from different fields to critically examine maximumentropy and Bayesian methods in science and engineering as well as other disciplines. Some of the papers were chosen specifically to kindle interest in new areas that may offer new tools or insight to the reader or to stimulate work on pressing problems that appear to be ideally suited to the maximumentropy or Bayesian method. A few papers presented at the workshops are not included in these proceedings, but a number of additional papers not presented at the workshop are included. In particular, we are delighted to make available Professor E. T. Jaynes' unpublished Stanford University Microwave Laboratory Report No. 421 "How Does the Brain Do Plausible Reasoning?" (dated August 1957). This is a beautiful, detailed tutorial on the CoxPolyaJaynes approach to Bayesian probability theory and the maximumentropy principle
