TitleThe Birth of Science
Author(s)Kossovsky, Alex Ely
PublicationCham, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer International Publishing, 2020.
DescriptionXV, 220 p. 95 illus., 47 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteThis book reveals the multi-generational process involved in the discovery of modern physics and examines the personal lives of six of the intellectual giants involved. It explores the profound revolution in the way of thinking, and in particular the successful refutation of the school of thought inherited from the Greeks, which focused on the perfection and immutability of the celestial world. In addition, the emergence of the scientific method and the adoption of mathematics as the central tool in scientific endeavors are discussed. Lastly, the book turns to Kepler???s crucial 3rd law and shows how it was derived from a mere six data points, corresponding to the six planets known at the time. Written in a straightforward and accessible style, the book will inform and fascinate all aficionados of science, history, philosophy, and, in particular, astronomy

TitleThe Craft of Scientific Presentations : Critical Steps to Succeed and Critical Errors to Avoid
Author(s)Alley, Michael
PublicationNew York, NY, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer New York, 2003.
DescriptionXV, 241 p : online resource
Abstract NoteOn March 21, 1949, I attended a lecture given by Linus Pauling.... That talk was the best talk by anyone on any subject that I had ever heard???. The talk was more than a talk to me. It filled me with a 1 desire of my own to become a speaker. ???Issac Asimov At the first stop of a tour in Japan, Albert Einstein gave a scientific presentation that, with the accompanying tra- lation, lasted four hours. Although his audience appeared to be attentive the entire time, Einstein worried about their comfort and decided to pare back the presentation for the next stop on his tour. At the end of the second pres- tation, which lasted two and a half hours, the crowd did an unusual thing in Japanese culture, particularly in that era. They complained. For Einstein, though, the complaint was a compliment???this crowd had wanted him to de- 2 liver the longer version

TitleMathematical Methods : For Students of Physics and Related Fields
Author(s)Hassani, Sadri
PublicationNew York, NY, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer New York, 2000.
DescriptionXV, 659 p. 88 illus : online resource
Abstract NoteIntended to follow the usual introductory physics courses, this book has the unique feature of addressing the mathematical needs of sophomores and juniors in physics, engineering and other related fields. Many original, lucid, and relevant examples from the physical sciences, problems at the ends of chapters, and boxes to emphasize important concepts help guide the student through the material. Beginning with reviews of vector algebra and differential and integral calculus, the book continues with infinite series, vector analysis, complex algebra and analysis, ordinary and partial differential equations. Discussions of numerical analysis, nonlinear dynamics and chaos, and the Dirac delta function provide an introduction to modern topics in mathematical physics. This new edition has been made more user-friendly through organization into convenient, shorter chapters. Also, it includes an entirely new section on Probability and plenty of new material on tensors and integral transforms. Some praise for the previous edition: "The book has many strengths. For example: Each chapter starts with a preamble that puts the chapters in context. Often, the author uses physical examples to motivate definitions, illustrate relationships, or culminate the development of particular mathematical strands. The use of Maxwell's equations to cap the presentation of vector calculus, a discussion that includes some tidbits about what led Maxwell to the displacement current, is a particularly enjoyable example. Historical touches like this are not isolated cases; the book includes a large number of notes on people and ideas, subtly reminding the student that science and mathematics are continuing and fascinating human activities." --Physics Today "Very well written (i.e., extremely readable), very well targeted (mainly to an average student of physics at a point of just leaving his/her sophomore level) and very well concentrated (to an author's apparently beloved subject of PDE's with applications and with all their necessary pedagogically-mathematical background)...The main merits of the text are its clarity (achieved via returns and innovations of the context), balance (building the subject step by step) and originality (recollect: the existence of the complex numbers is only admitted far in the second half of the text!). Last but not least, the student reader is impressed by the graphical quality of the text (figures first of all, but also boxes with the essentials, summarizing comments in the left column etc.)...Summarizing: Well done." --Zentralblatt MATH

TitleEconophysics of Systemic Risk and Network Dynamics
Author(s)Frederic Abergel (ed.);Bikas K. Chakrabarti (ed.);Anirban Chakraborti (ed.);Asim Ghosh (ed.)
PublicationMilano, Springer, 2013.
DescriptionVIII, 300 p : online resource
Abstract NoteThe primary goal of the book is to present the ideas and research findings of active researchers such as physicists, economists, mathematicians and financial engineers working in the field of Econophysics, who have undertaken the task of modeling and analyzing systemic risk, network dynamics and other topics. Of primary interest in these studies is the aspect of systemic risk, which has long been identified as a potential scenario in which financial institutions trigger a dangerous contagion mechanism, spreading from the financial economy to the real economy. This type of risk, long confined to the monetary market, has spread considerably in the recent past, culminating in the subprime crisis of 2008. As such, understanding and controlling systemic risk has become an extremely important societal and economic challenge. The Econophys-Kolkata VI conference proceedings are dedicated to addressing a number of key issues involved. Several leading researchers in these fields report on their recent work and also review contemporary literature on the subject

TitleIntroduzione ai frattali in fisica
Author(s)Ratti, Sergio Peppino
PublicationMilano, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer Milan, 2011.
DescriptionXIII, 309 pagg : online resource
Abstract NoteLa geometria frattale permette di caratterizzare le strutture complesse e irregolari che godono della propriet?? di invarianza di scala. Introdotta da Mandelbrot nel 1975, spiega in modo convincente che la natura ci pone di fronte a molti esempi di strutture complesse che godono di propriet?? peculiari: ?? un fatto che in natura l???irregolarit?? sia molto comune, come dimostrano le strutture di piante, montagne, nuvole e fulmini. Il volume nasce dall???esperienza didattica sviluppata dall???autore in oltre un decennio di insegnamento di Istituzioni di Fisica Superiore presso l???Universit?? di Pavia e intende colmare la lacuna nel panorama italiano di testi didattici su tematiche frattali. Parte dalla definizione di oggetti e di funzioni frattali, introducendo la dimensione ???non intera??? e la ???codimensione??? di un insieme, di una figura geometrica e la sua estensione a una funzione matematica irregolare. Segue l???introduzione dei frattali stocastici che tengono conto della natura parzialmente caotica dei fenomeni fisici. Di particolare rilevanza un capitolo che compendia la trattazione di fenomeni caotici e introduce gli attrattori strani di Edward Lorenz. Infine si affronta l???applicazione dei concetti frattali alla fisica cosmica, all???econofisica e alla descrizione dell???inquinamento prodotto da due disastri ambientali: l???incidente chimico di Seveso e quello nucleare di Chernobyl. Il testo si rivolge in primo luogo agli studenti dei corsi di Laurea Magistrale in Fisica, Chimica, Ingegneria e Scienze Ambientali; pu?? costituire comunque un valido ausilio come testo complementare di natura applicativa. Il carattere propedeutico del volume si presta agevolmente a un apprendimento autonomo individuale

TitleEinstein's General Theory of Relativity : With Modern Applications in Cosmology
Author(s)Gr??n, ??yvind;Hervik, Sigbjorn
PublicationNew York, NY, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer New York, 2007.
DescriptionXX, 538 p : online resource
Abstract NoteMany of us have experienced the same; fallen and broken something. Yet supposedly, gravity is the weakest of the fundamental forces; it is claimed to be 10-15 times weaker than electromagnetism. Still, every one of us has more or less had a personal relationship with gravity. Einstein???s General Theory of Relativity: With Modern Applications in Cosmology by Oyvind Gron and Sigbjorn Hervik is about gravity and the concept of gravity as Albert Einstein saw it- curved spaces, four-dimensional manifolds and geodesics. The book starts with the 1st principals of relativity and an introduction to Einstein???s field equations. Next up are the three classical tests of the relativity theory and an introduction to black holes. The book contains several topics not found in other textbooks, such as Kaluza-Klein theory, anisotropic models of the universe, and new developments involving brane cosmology. Gron and Hervik have included a part in the book called "Advanced Topics." These topics range from the very edge of research to older, accepted ideas. In particular, the last two chapters deal with Einstein gravity in five dimensions, which has been a hot topic of research in recent years. On one final note, cosmology has also proven to be a very important testing arena for the general theory of relativity and a large part of the book is therefore devoted to this subject

TitleIntroduction to Soliton Theory: Applications to Mechanics
Author(s)Munteanu, Ligia;Donescu, Stefania
PublicationDordrecht, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer Netherlands, 2005.
DescriptionCCCXV, 222 p : online resource
Abstract NoteThis monograph provides the application of soliton theory to solve certain problems selected from the fields of mechanics. The work is based of the authors??? research, and on some specified, significant results existing in the literature. The present monograph is not a simple translation of its predecessor appeared in Publishing House of the Romanian Academy in 2002. Improvements outline the way in which the soliton theory is applied to solve some engineering problems. The book addresses concrete resolution methods of certain problems such as the motion of thin elastic rod, vibrations of initial deformed thin elastic rod, the coupled pendulum oscillations, dynamics of left ventricle, transient flow of blood in arteries, the subharmonic waves generation in a piezoelectric plate with Cantor-like structure, and some problems related to Tzitzeica surfaces. This comprehensive study enables the readers to make connections between the soliton physical phenomenon and some partical, engineering problems
