Title  Energy Transfer and Dissipation in Plasma Turbulence : From Compressible MHD to Collisionless Plasma 
Author(s)  Yang, Yan 
Publication  Singapore, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Singapore, 2019. 
Description  XIX, 134 p. 55 illus., 52 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book revisits the longstanding puzzle of crossscale energy transfer and dissipation in plasma turbulence and introduces new perspectives based on both magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) and Vlasov models. The classical energy cascade scenario is key in explaining the heating of corona and solar wind. By employing a highresolution hybrid (compact finite difference & WENO) scheme, the book studies the features of compressible MHD cascade in detail, for example, in order to approximate a real plasma cascade as ???Kolmogorovlike??? and to understand features that go beyond the usual simplified theories based on incompressible models. When approaching kinetic scales where plasma effects must be considered, it uses an elementary analysis of the Vlasov???Maxwell equations to help identify the channels through which energy transfer must be dissipated. In addition, it shows that the pressure???strain interaction is of great significance in producing internal energy. This analysis, in contrast to many other recent studies, does not make assumptions about wavemodes, instability or other specific mechanisms responsible for the dynamics ??? the results are direct consequences of the Vlasov???Maxwell system of equations. This is an important step toward understanding dissipation in turbulent collisionless plasma in space and astrophysics

Title  Essential Python for the Physicist 
Author(s)  Moruzzi, Giovanni 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2020. 
Description  X, 302 p. 111 illus., 62 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book introduces the reader with little or no previous computerprogramming experience to the Python programming language of interest for a physicist or a naturalsciences student. The book starts with basic interactive Python in order to acquire an introductory familiarity with the language, than tackle Python scripts (programs) of increasing complexity, that the reader is invited to run on her/his computer. All program listings are discussed in detail, and the reader is invited to experiment on what happens if some code lines are modified. The reader is introduced to Matplotlib graphics for the generation of figures representing data and function plots and, for instance, field lines. Animated function plots are also considered. A chapter is dedicated to the numerical solution of algebraic and transcendental equations, the basic mathematical principles are discussed and the available Python tools for the solution are presented. A further chapter is dedicated to the numerical solution of ordinary differential equations. This is of vital importance for the physicist, since differential equations are at the base of both classical physics (Newton???s equations) and quantum mechanics (Schroedinger???s equation). The shooting method for the numerical solution of ordinary differential equations with boundary conditions at two boundaries is also presented. Python programs for the solution of two quantummechanics problems are discussed as examples. Two chapters are dedicated to Tkinter graphics, which gives the user more freedom than Matplotlib, and to Tkinter animation. Programs displaying the animation of physical problems involving the solution of ordinary differential equations (for which in most cases there is no algebraic solution) in real time are presented and discussed. Finally, 3D animation is presented with Vpython

Title  Parabolic Wave Equations with Applications 
Author(s)  Collins, Michael D;Siegmann, William L 
Publication  New York, NY, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer New York, 2019. 
Description  IX, 135 p. 74 illus., 37 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book introduces parabolic wave equations, their key methods of numerical solution, and applications in seismology and ocean acoustics. The parabolic equation method provides an appealing combination of accuracy and efficiency for many nonseparable wave propagation problems in geophysics. While the parabolic equation method was pioneered in the 1940s by Leontovich and Fock who applied it to radio wave propagation in the atmosphere, it thrived in the 1970s due to its usefulness in seismology and ocean acoustics. The book covers progress made following the parabolic equation???s ascendancy in geophysics. It begins with the necessary preliminaries on the elliptic wave equation and its analysis from which the parabolic wave equation is derived and introduced. Subsequently, the authors demonstrate the use of rational approximation techniques, the Pad?? solution in particular, to find numerical solutions to the energyconserving parabolic equation, threedimensional parabolic equations, and horizontal wave equations. The rest of the book demonstrates applications to seismology, ocean acoustics, and beyond, with coverage of elastic waves, sloping interfaces and boundaries, acoustogravity waves, and waves in poroelastic media. Overall, it will be of use to students and researchers in wave propagation, ocean acoustics, geophysical sciences and more

Title  ThomasFermi Model for Mesons and Noise Subtraction Techniques in Lattice QCD 
Author(s)  Baral, Suman 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2019. 
Description  IX, 72 p. 39 illus., 28 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis make significant contributions to both the numerical and analytical aspects of particle physics, reducing the noise associated with matrix calculations in quantum chromodynamics (QCD) and modeling multiquark mesonic matters that could be used to investigate particles previously unseen in nature. Several methods are developed that can reduce the statistical uncertainty in the extraction of hardtodetect lattice QCD signals from disconnected diagrams. The most promising technique beats competing methods by 1700 percent, leading to a potential decrease in the computation time of quark loop quantities by an order of magnitude. This not only increases efficiency but also works for QCD matrices with almostzero eigenvalues, a region where most QCD algorithms break down. This thesis also develops analytical solutions used to investigate exotic particles, specifically the ThomasFermi quark model, giving insight into possible new states formed from mesonic matter. The main benefit of this model is that it can work for a large number of quarks which is currently almost impossible with lattice QCD. Patterns of singlequark energies are observed which give the first a priori indication that stable octaquark and hexadecaquark versions of the charmed and bottom Zmeson exist

Title  Materials Discovery and Design : By Means of Data Science and Optimal Learning 
Author(s)  Lookman, Turab;Eidenbenz, Stephan;Alexander, Frank;Barnes, Cris 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2018. 
Description  XVI, 256 p. 98 illus., 88 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book addresses the current status, challenges and future directions of datadriven materials discovery and design. It presents the analysis and learning from data as a key theme in many science and cyber related applications. The challenging open questions as well as future directions in the application of data science to materials problems are sketched. Computational and experimental facilities today generate vast amounts of data at an unprecedented rate. The book gives guidance to discover new knowledge that enables materials innovation to address grand challenges in energy, environment and security, the clearer link needed between the data from these facilities and the theory and underlying science. The role of inference and optimization methods in distilling the data and constraining predictions using insights and results from theory is key to achieving the desired goals of real time analysis and feedback. Thus, the importance of this book lies in emphasizing that the full value of knowledge driven discovery using data can only be realized by integrating statistical and information sciences with materials science, which is increasingly dependent on high throughput and large scale computational and experimental data gathering efforts. This is especially the case as we enter a new era of big data in materials science with the planning of future experimental facilities such as the Linac Coherent Light Source at Stanford (LCLSII), the European Xray Free Electron Laser (EXFEL) and MaRIE (Matter Radiation in Extremes), the signature concept facility from Los Alamos National Laboratory. These facilities are expected to generate hundreds of terabytes to several petabytes of in situ spatially and temporally resolved data per sample. The questions that then arise include how we can learn from the data to accelerate the processing and analysis of reconstructed microstructure, rapidly map spatially resolved properties from high throughput data, devise diagnostics for pattern detection, and guide experiments towards desired targeted properties. The authors are an interdisciplinary group of leading experts who bring the excitement of the nascent and rapidly emerging field of materials informatics to the reader.

Title  Stochastic Numerics for Mathematical Physics 
Author(s)  Milstein, Grigori Noah;Tretyakov, Michael V 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2004. 
Description  XIX, 596 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  Stochastic 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 multidimensional 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
