TitleBeyond Einstein : Perspectives on Geometry, Gravitation, and Cosmology in the Twentieth Century
Author(s)Rowe, David E;Sauer, Tilman;Walter, Scott A
PublicationNew York, NY, 1. Imprint: Birkh??user 2. Springer New York, 2018.
DescriptionXXIII, 492 p. 71 illus., 14 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteThis volume explores the interplay between mathematical and physical research and the interactions of twentieth-century scientists within their academic communities. Beginning with Einstein???s general theory of relativity, the authors investigate a series of dramatic discoveries and rival theories in physics that influenced the development of modern differential geometry. Other sections recount the numerous methods, like the resurgence of Weyl geometry, used by geometers to solve the problems revealed by those same innovations in space-time physics. The effect of general relativity on astronomy is also addressed, namely how astronomers worked through new theories like inflationary cosmology and Phoenix models. By including recent historical research and coupling this work with many disciplines??? unique perspectives, this text provides a rich picture of general relativity and cosmology over the course of the twentieth century. The increased study on the documentation of Einstein???s early scientific work has clarified the history of science for that time and profoundly altered the way scientists view their own work, as this interdisciplinary volume demonstrates

TitleThinking About Space and Time : 100 Years of Applying and Interpreting General Relativity
Author(s)Beisbart, Claus;Sauer, Tilman;W??thrich, Christian
PublicationCham, 1. Imprint: Birkh??user 2. Springer International Publishing, 2020.
DescriptionXVIII, 267 p. 8 illus., 3 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteThis volume offers an integrated understanding of how the theory of general relativity gained momentum after Einstein had formulated it in 1915. Chapters focus on the early reception of the theory in physics and philosophy and on the systematic questions that emerged shortly after Einstein's momentous discovery. They are written by physicists, historians of science, and philosophers, and were originally presented at the conference titled Thinking About Space and Time: 100 Years of Applying and Interpreting General Relativity, held at the University of Bern from September 12-14, 2017. By establishing the historical context first, and then moving into more philosophical chapters, this volume will provide readers with a more complete understanding of early applications of general relativity (e.g., to cosmology) and of related philosophical issues. Because the chapters are often cross-disciplinary, they cover a wide variety of topics related to the general theory of relativity. These include: Heuristics used in the discovery of general relativity Mach's Principle The structure of Einstein's theory Cosmology and the Einstein world Stability of cosmological models The metaphysical nature of spacetime The relationship between spacetime and dynamics The Geodesic Principle Symmetries Thinking About Space and Time will be a valuable resource for historians of science and philosophers who seek a deeper knowledge of the (early and later) uses of general relativity, as well as for physicists and mathematicians interested in exploring the wider historical and philosophical context of Einstein's theory

TitleThe Renaissance of General Relativity in Context
Author(s)Blum, Alexander S;Lalli, Roberto;Renn, J??rgen
PublicationCham, 1. Imprint: Birkh??user 2. Springer International Publishing, 2020.
DescriptionX, 406 p. 29 illus., 27 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteThis contributed volume explores the renaissance of general relativity after World War II, when it transformed from a marginal theory into a cornerstone of modern physics. Chapters explore key historical processes related to the theory of general relativity, in addition to presenting a thorough treatment of the relevant science behind these episodes. A broad historiographical framework is introduced first, thus providing the broad context in which the given computational approaches and case studies occurred. Written by an international and interdisciplinary group of expert authors, these chapters will bring readers to a more complete understanding of Einstein???s theory. Specific topics include: Social and citation networks The Fock-Infeld dispute Wheeler???s turn to gravitation theory The position of general relativity in theories of fundamental interactions The pursuit of a quantum theory of gravity The emergence of dark matter in relation to cosmological models Institutional frameworks for gravitational wave search in Europe The Renaissance of General Relativity in Context is ideal for historians, philosophers, and sociologists of science. Students and researchers in physics will also be interested in the topics explored

TitleTowards a Theory of Spacetime Theories
Author(s)Lehmkuhl, Dennis;Schiemann, Gregor;Scholz, Erhard
PublicationNew York, NY, 1. Imprint: Birkh??user 2. Springer New York, 2017.
DescriptionVIII, 335 p. 7 illus : online resource
Abstract NoteThis contributed volume is the result of a July 2010 workshop at the University of Wuppertal Interdisciplinary Centre for Science and Technology Studies which brought together world-wide experts from physics, philosophy and history, in order to address a set of questions first posed in the 1950s: How do we compare spacetime theories? How do we judge, objectively, which is the ???best??? theory? Is there even a unique answer to this question? The goal of the workshop, and of this book, is to contribute to the development of a meta-theory of spacetime theories. Such a meta-theory would reveal insights about specific spacetime theories by distilling their essential similarities and differences, deliver a framework for a class of theories that could be helpful as a blueprint to build other meta-theories, and provide a higher level viewpoint for judging which theory most accurately describes nature. But rather than drawing a map in broad strokes, the focus is on particularly rich regions in the ???space of spacetime theories.??? This work will be of interest to physicists, as well as philosophers and historians of science working with or interested in General Relativity and/or Space, Time and Gravitation more generally

TitleProgress and Visions in Quantum Theory in View of Gravity : Bridging Foundations of Physics and Mathematics
Author(s)Finster, Felix;Giulini, Domenico;Kleiner, Johannes;Tolksdorf, J??rgen
PublicationCham, 1. Imprint: Birkh??user 2. Springer International Publishing, 2020.
DescriptionX, 295 p. 32 illus., 18 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteThis book focuses on a critical discussion of the status and prospects of current approaches in quantum mechanics and quantum field theory, in particular concerning gravity. It contains a carefully selected cross-section of lectures and discussions at the seventh conference ???Progress and Visions in Quantum Theory in View of Gravity??? which took place in fall 2018 at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in the Sciences in Leipzig. In contrast to usual proceeding volumes, instead of reporting on the most recent technical results, contributors were asked to discuss visions and new ideas in foundational physics, in particular concerning foundations of quantum field theory. A special focus has been put on the question of which physical principles of quantum (field) theory can be considered fundamental in view of gravity. The book is mainly addressed to mathematicians and physicists who are interested in fundamental questions of mathematical physics. It allows the reader to obtain a broad and up-to-date overview of a fascinating active research area

TitleEquations in Mathematical Physics : A practical course
Author(s)Pikulin, V.P;Pohozaev, Stanislav I
PublicationBasel, 1. Birkh??user Basel 2. Imprint: Birkh??user, 2001.
DescriptionVIII, 207 p. 1 illus : online resource
Abstract NoteThis handbook is addressed to students of technology institutf's where a course on mathematical physics of relatively reduced volume is offered, as well as to engineers and scientists. The aim of the handbook is to treat (demonstrate) the basic methods for solving the simplest problems of classical mathematical physics. The most basic among the methods considered hrre i8 the superposition method. It allows one, based on particular linearly indepmdent HolutionH (solution "atoms"), to obtain the solution of a given problem. To that end the "Hupply" of solution atoms must be complete. This method is a development of the well-known method of particular solutions from the theory of ordinar~' differelltial equations. In contrast to the case of ordinary differential equations, where the number of linearly independent 80lutions is always finite, for a linear partial differrntial equation a complete "supply" of solution atoms is always infinite. This infinite set of Holutions may be discrete (for example, for regular boundary vahlP problems in a bounded domain), or form a continuum (for example, in the case of problems in the whole space). In the first case the superposition method reduces to tlH' construction of a series in the indicated solution atoms with unknown coefficipnts, while in the second case the series is replaced by an integral with respect to the corm:iponding parameters (variables). This first step leads us to the general solution of the associated hOlllogeneous equation under the assumption that the set of solution atoms i;; "complete

TitleControversy and Consensus: Nuclear Beta Decay 1911???1934
Author(s)Jensen, Carsten;Aaserud, Finn;Kragh, Helge;R??dinger, Erik;Stuewer, Roger H
PublicationBasel, 1. Birkh??user Basel 2. Imprint: Birkh??user, 2000.
DescriptionXVII, 217 p : online resource
Abstract NoteTo all four of us, Carsten was the best possible friend and colleague. To Finn, he was a fellow student in the history of science for several years at the Niels Bohr Institute; to Relge, he was a welcome resource for personal and intellectual interac?? tion in an otherwise less than fertile environment for the history of science; Roger was Carsten's friend and advisor, not least in the development of the dissertation on which the present book is based; and as director of the Niels Bohr Archive, Erik was his main advisor in his historical work. Because he was the person closest to Carsten's work on his Ph. D. dissertation on the history of beta decay, on which the present book is based, it is only fitting that Erik stands as single author of the words in Carsten's memory at the very beginning of this book. Before his untimely death shortly after the completion of the Ph. D. disser?? tation, Carsten had himself plans to develop the dissertation into a book. Being a true perfectionist, he wanted to rework the manuscript substantively, especially with regard to relating it to the broader discussion among historians of science

TitleDynamical Systems with Applications using MAPLE
Author(s)Lynch, Stephen
PublicationBoston, MA, 1. Birkh??user Boston 2. Imprint: Birkh??user, 2001.
DescriptionXIII, 399 p. 83 illus : online resource
Abstract Note"The text treats a remarkable spectrum of topics and has a little for everyone. It can serve as an introduction to many of the topics of dynamical systems, and will help even the most jaded reader, such as this reviewer, enjoy some of the interactive aspects of studying dynamics using Maple." ???UK Nonlinear News (Review of First Edition) "The book will be useful for all kinds of dynamical systems courses???. [It] shows the power of using a computer algebra program to study dynamical systems, and, by giving so many worked examples, provides ample opportunity for experiments. ??? [It] is well written and a pleasure to read, which is helped by its attention to historical background." ???Mathematical Reviews (Review of First Edition) Since the first edition of this book was published in 2001, Maple??? has evolved from Maple V into Maple 13. Accordingly, this new edition has been thoroughly updated and expanded to include more applications, examples, and exercises, all with solutions; two new chapters on neural networks and simulation have also been added. There are also new sections on perturbation methods, normal forms, Gr??bner bases, and chaos synchronization. The work provides an introduction to the theory of dynamical systems with the aid of Maple. The author has emphasized breadth of coverage rather than fine detail, and theorems with proof are kept to a minimum. Some of the topics treated are scarcely covered elsewhere. Common themes such as bifurcation, bistability, chaos, instability, multistability, and periodicity run through several chapters. The book has a hands-on approach, using Maple as a pedagogical tool throughout. Maple worksheet files are listed at the end of each chapter, and along with commands, programs, and output may be viewed in color at the author???s website. Additional applications and further links of interest may be found at Maplesoft???s Application Center. Dynamical Systems with Applications using Maple is aimed at senior undergraduates, graduate students, and working scientists in various branches of applied mathematics, the natural sciences, and engineering.
