Title  A First Course in the Sporadic SICs 
Author(s)  Stacey, Blake C 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2021. 
Description  VIII, 115 p. 7 illus., 2 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book focuses on the Symmetric Informationally Complete quantum measurements (SICs) in dimensions 2 and 3, along with one set of SICs in dimension 8. These objects stand out in ways that have earned them the moniker of "sporadic SICs". By some standards, they are more approachable than the other known SICs, while by others they are simply atypical. The author forays into quantum information theory using them as examples, and the author explores their connections with other exceptional objects like the Leech lattice and integral octonions. The sporadic SICs take readers from the classification of finite simple groups to Bell's theorem and the discovery that "hidden variables" cannot explain away quantum uncertainty. While no one department teaches every subject to which the sporadic SICs pertain, the topic is approachable without too much background knowledge. The book includes exercises suitable for an elective at the graduate or advanced undergraduate level

Title  Elliptic Quantum Groups : Representations and Related Geometry 
Author(s)  Konno, Hitoshi 
Publication  Singapore, Springer Singapore, 2020. 
Description  XIII, 131 p. 3 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  This is the first book on elliptic quantum groups, i.e., quantum groups associated to elliptic solutions of the YangBaxter equation. Based on research by the author and his collaborators, the book presents a comprehensive survey on the subject including a brief history of formulations and applications, a detailed formulation of the elliptic quantum group in the Drinfeld realization, explicit construction of both finite and infinitedimensional representations, and a construction of the vertex operators as intertwining operators of these representations. The vertex operators are important objects in representation theory of quantum groups. In this book, they are used to derive the elliptic qKZ equations and their elliptic hypergeometric integral solutions. In particular, the socalled elliptic weight functions appear in such solutions. The author???s recent study showed that these elliptic weight functions are identified with Okounkov???s elliptic stable envelopes for certain equivariant elliptic cohomology and play an important role to construct geometric representations of elliptic quantum groups. Okounkov???s geometric approach to quantum integrable systems is a rapidly growing topic in mathematical physics related to the Bethe ansatz, the AldayGaiottoTachikawa correspondence between 4D SUSY gauge theories and the CFT???s, and the NekrasovShatashvili correspondences between quantum integrable systems and quantum cohomology. To invite the reader to such topics is one of the aims of this book

Title  Alternative Logics. Do Sciences Need Them? 
Author(s)  Weingartner, Paul A 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2004. 
Description  XVII, 368 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  Initially proposed as rivals of classical logic, alternative logics have become increasingly important in sciences such as quantum physics, computer science, and artificial intelligence. The contributions collected in this volume address and explore the question whether the usage of logic in the sciences, especially in modern physics, requires a deviation from classical mathematical logic. The articles in the first part of the book set the scene by describing the context and the dilemma when applying logic in science. In Part II the authors offer several logics that deviate in different ways from classical logics. The twelve papers in Part III investigate in detail specific aspects such as quantum logic, quantum computation, computerscience considerations, praxic logic, and quantum probability. Most of the contributions are revised and partially extended versions of papers presented at a conference of the same title of the Acad??mie Internationale de Philosophie des Sciences held at the Internationales Forschungszentrum Salzburg in May 1999. Others have been added to complete the picture of recent research in alternative logics as they have been developed for applications in the sciences

Title  Current Research in Operational Quantum Logic : Algebras, Categories, Languages 
Author(s)  Coecke, Bob;Moore, David;Wilce, Alexander 
Publication  Dordrecht, Springer Netherlands, 2000. 
Description  VII, 325 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  The present volume has its origins in a pair of informal workshops held at the Free University of Brussels, in June of 1998 and May of 1999, named "Current Research 1 in Operational Quantum Logic". These brought together mathematicians and physicists working in operational quantum logic and related areas, as well as a number of interested philosophers of science, for a rare opportunity to discuss recent developments in this field. After some discussion, it was decided that, rather than producing a volume of conference proceedings, we would try to organize the conferees to produce a set of comprehensive survey papers, which would not only report on recent developments in quantum logic, but also provide a tutorial overview of the subject suitable for an interested nonspecialist audience. The resulting volume provides an overview of the concepts and methods used in current research in quantum logic, viewed both as a branch of mathemati?? cal physics and as an area of pure mathematics. The first half of the book is concerned with the algebraic side of the subject, and in particular the theory of orthomodular lattices and posets, effect algebras, etc. In the second half of the book, special attention is given to categorical methods and to connections with theoretical computer science. At the 1999 workshop, we were fortunate to hear three excellent lectures by David J. Foulis, represented here by two contributions. Dave's work, spanning 40 years, has helped to define, and continues to reshape, the field of quantum logic

Title  Algebras and Orders 
Author(s)  Rosenberg, Ivo G;Sabidussi, Gert 
Publication  Dordrecht, Springer Netherlands, 1993. 
Description  XVIII, 558 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  In the summer of 1991 the Department of Mathematics and Statistics of the Universite de Montreal was fortunate to host the NATO Advanced Study Institute "Algebras and Orders" as its 30th Seminaire de mathematiques superieures (SMS), a summer school with a long tradition and wellestablished reputation. This book contains the contributions of the invited speakers. Universal algebra which established itself only in the 1930's grew from traditional algebra (e.g., groups, modules, rings and lattices) and logic (e.g., propositional calculus, model theory and the theory of relations). It started by extending results from these fields but by now it is a wellestablished and dynamic discipline in its own right. One of the objectives of the ASI was to cover a broad spectrum of topics in this field, and to put in evidence the natural links to, and interactions with, boolean algebra, lattice theory, topology, graphs, relations, automata, theoretical computer science and (partial) orders. The theory of orders is a relatively young and vigorous discipline sharing certain topics as well as many researchers and meetings with universal algebra and lattice theory. W. Taylor surveyed the abstract clone theory which formalizes the process of compos?? ing operations (i.e., the formation of term operations) of an algebra as a special category with countably many objects, and leading naturally to the interpretation and equivalence of varieties

Title  Ordered Sets : Proceedings of the NATO Advanced Study Institute held at Banff, Canada, August 28 to September 12, 1981 
Author(s)  Rival, Ivan 
Publication  Dordrecht, Springer Netherlands, 1982. 
Description  978 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  This volume contains all twentythree of the principal survey papers presented at the Symposium on Ordered Sets held at Banff, Canada from August 28 to September 12, 1981. The Symposium was supported by grants from the NATO Advanced Study Institute programme, the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada, the Canadian Mathematical Society Summer Research Institute programme, and the University of Calgary. tve are very grateful to these Organizations for their considerable interest and support. Over forty years ago on April 15, 1938 the first Symposium on Lattice Theory was held in Charlottesville, U.S.A. in conjunction with a meeting of the American Mathematical Society. The principal addresses on that occasion were Lattices and their applications by G. Birkhoff, On the application of structure theory to groups by O. Ore, and The representation of Boolean algebras by M. H. Stone. The texts of these addresses and three others by R. Baer, H. M. MacNeille, and K. Menger appear in the Bulletin of the American Mathematical Society, Volume 44, 1938. In those days the theory of ordered sets, and especially lattice theory was described as a "vigorous and promising younger brother of group theory." Some early workers hoped that lattice?? theoretic methods would lead to solutions of important problems in group theory

Title  Algebraic KTheory and Algebraic Topology 
Author(s)  Goerss, P.G;Jardine, John F 
Publication  Dordrecht, Springer Netherlands, 1993. 
Description  XII, 328 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  A NATO Advanced Study Institute entitled "Algebraic Ktheory and Algebraic Topology" was held at Chateau Lake Louise, Lake Louise, Alberta, Canada from December 12 to December 16 of 1991. This book is the volume of proceedings for this meeting. The papers that appear here are representative of most of the lectures that were given at the conference, and therefore present a "snapshot" of the state ofthe Ktheoretic art at the end of 1991. The underlying objective of the meeting was to discuss recent work related to the LichtenbaumQuillen complex of conjectures, fro~ both the algebraic and topological points of view. The papers in this volume deal with a range of topics, including motivic cohomology theories, cyclic homology, intersection homology, higher class field theory, and the former telescope conjecture. This meeting was jointly funded by grants from NATO and the National Science Foun?? dation in the United States. I would like to take this opportunity to thank these agencies for their support. I would also like to thank the other members of the organizing com?? mittee, namely Paul Goerss, Bruno Kahn and Chuck Weibel, for their help in making the conference successful. This was the second NATO Advanced Study Institute to be held in this venue; the first was in 1987. The success of both conferences owes much to the professionalism and helpfulness of the administration and staff of Chateau Lake Louise

Title  Graphs and Order : The Role of Graphs in the Theory of Ordered Sets and Its Applications 
Author(s)  Rival, Ivan 
Publication  Dordrecht, Springer Netherlands, 1985. 
Description  816 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  This volume contains the accounts of the principal survey papers presented at GRAPHS and ORDER, held at Banff, Canada from May 18 to May 31, 1984. This conference was supported by grants from the N.A.T.O. Advanced Study Institute programme, the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada and the University of Calgary. We are grateful for all of this considerable support. Almost fifty years ago the first Symposium on Lattice Theory was held in Charlottesville, U.S.A. On that occasion the principal lectures were delivered by G. Birkhoff, O. Ore and M.H. Stone. In those days the theory of ordered sets was thought to be a vigorous relative of group theory. Some twentyfive years ago the Symposium on Partially Ordered Sets and Lattice Theory was held in Monterey, U.S.A. Among the principal speakers at that meeting were R.P. Dilworth, B. Jonsson, A. Tarski and G. Birkhoff. Lattice theory had turned inward: it was concerned primarily with problems about lattices themselves. As a matter of fact the problems that were then posed have, by now, in many instances, been completely solved
