TitleStochastic filtering theory: Applications of Mathematics
Author(s)Gopinath Kallianpur
PublicationNew York, Springer-Verlag, 1980.
Descriptionxvi, 316p.
Series(Applications of Mathematics)
Abstract NoteThis book is based on a seminar given at the University of California at Los Angeles in the Spring of 1975. The choice of topics reflects my interests at the time and the needs of the students taking the course. Initially the lectures were written up for publication in the Lecture Notes series. How­ ever, when I accepted Professor A. V. Balakrishnan's invitation to publish them in the Springer series on Applications of Mathematics it became necessary to alter the informal and often abridged style of the notes and to rewrite or expand much of the original manuscript so as to make the book as self-contained as possible. Even so, no attempt has been made to write a comprehensive treatise on filtering theory, and the book still follows the original plan of the lectures. While this book was in preparation, the two-volume English translation of the work by R. S. Liptser and A. N. Shiryaev has appeared in this series. The first volume and the present book have the same approach to the sub­ ject, viz. that of martingale theory. Liptser and Shiryaev go into greater detail in the discussion of statistical applications and also consider inter­ polation and extrapolation as well as filtering.

TitleGrobner bases: A Computational Approach to Commutative Algebra
Author(s)Thomas Becker;Volker Weispfenning
PublicationNew York, Springer-Verlag, 1993.
Descriptionxxii, 574p.
Series(Graduate Texts in Mathematics)
Abstract NoteThe origins of the mathematics in this book date back more than two thou­ sand years, as can be seen from the fact that one of the most important algorithms presented here bears the name of the Greek mathematician Eu­ clid. The word "algorithm" as well as the key word "algebra" in the title of this book come from the name and the work of the ninth-century scientist Mohammed ibn Musa al-Khowarizmi, who was born in what is now Uzbek­ istan and worked in Baghdad at the court of Harun al-Rashid's son. The word "algorithm" is actually a westernization of al-Khowarizmi's name, while "algebra" derives from "al-jabr," a term that appears in the title of his book Kitab al-jabr wa'l muqabala, where he discusses symbolic methods for the solution of equations. This close connection between algebra and al­ gorithms lasted roughly up to the beginning of this century; until then, the primary goal of algebra was the design of constructive methods for solving equations by means of symbolic transformations. During the second half of the nineteenth century, a new line of thought began to enter algebra from the realm of geometry, where it had been successful since Euclid's time, namely, the axiomatic method.

TitleSpringer handbook of spacetime
Author(s)Abhay Ashtekar (ed.);Vesselin Petkov (ed.)
PublicationBerlin, Springer-Verlag, 2014.
Descriptionxxvi, 887p. : With 190 figures adn 9 Tables
Abstract NoteThe Springer Handbook of Spacetime is dedicated to the ground-breaking paradigm shifts embodied in the two relativity theories, and describes in detail the profound reshaping of physical sciences they ushered in. It includes in a single volume chapters on foundations, on the underlying mathematics, on physical and astrophysical implications, experimental evidence and cosmological predictions, as well as chapters on efforts to unify general relativity and quantum physics. The Handbook can be used as a desk reference by researchers in a wide variety of fields, not only by specialists in relativity but also by researchers in related areas that either grew out of, or are deeply influenced by, the two relativity theories: cosmology, astronomy and astrophysics, high energy physics, quantum field theory, mathematics, and philosophy of science. It should also serve as a valuable resource for graduate students and young researchers entering these areas, and for instructors who teach courses on these subjects.
Contents NoteThe Handbook is divided into six parts. Part A: Introduction to Spacetime Structure. Part B: Foundational Issues. Part C: Spacetime Structure and Mathematics. Part D: Confronting Relativity theories with observations. Part E: General relativity and the universe. Part F: Spacetime beyond Einstein.

TitleSpecial theory of relativity: A Mathematical Exposition
Author(s)Anadijiban Das
PublicationNew York, Springer-Verlag, 1993.
Descriptionxii, 214p.
Series(Universitext)
Abstract NoteBased on courses taught at the University of Dublin, Carnegie Mellon University, and mostly at Simon Fraser University, this book presents the special theory of relativity from a mathematical point of view. It begins with the axioms of the Minkowski vector space and the flat spacetime manifold. Then it discusses the kinematics of special relativity in terms of Lorentz tranformations, and treats the group structure of Lorentz transformations. Extending the discussion to spinors, the author shows how a unimodular mapping of spinor (vector) space can induce a proper, orthochronous Lorentz mapping on the Minkowski vector space. The second part begins with a discussion of relativistic particle mechanics from both the Lagrangian and Hamiltonian points of view. The book then turns to the relativistic (classical) field theory, including a proof of Noether's theorem and discussions of the Klein-Gordon, electromagnetic, Dirac, and non-abelian gauge fields. The final chapter deals with recent work on classical fields in an eight-dimensional covariant phase space.

TitleAstrophysics at very high energies
Author(s)Felix Aharonian;Lars Bergstrom;Charles Dermer
PublicationBerlin, Springer-Verlag, 2013.
Descriptionxii, 361p.
Series(SAAS-FEE Advanced Course)
Abstract NoteWith the success of Cherenkov Astronomy and more recently with the launch of NASA’s Fermi mission, very-high-energy astrophysics has undergone a revolution in the last years. This book provides three comprehensive and up-to-date reviews of the recent advances in gamma-ray astrophysics and of multi-messenger astronomy. Felix Aharonian and Charles Dermer address our current knowledge on the sources of GeV and TeV photons, gleaned from the precise measurements made by the new instrumentation. Lars Bergström presents the challenges and prospects of astro-particle physics with a particular emphasis on the detection of dark matter candidates. The topics covered by the 40th Saas-Fee Course present the capabilities of current instrumentation and the physics at play in sources of very-high-energy radiation to students and researchers alike. This book will encourage and prepare readers for using space and ground-based gamma-ray observatories, as well as neutrino and other multi-messenger detectors.

TitleIntelligent life in the universe: Principles and Requirements Behind Its Emergence
Author(s)Peter Ulmschneider
Edition2nd
PublicationBerlin, 1. Springer 2. Springer-Verlag, 2006.
Descriptionxiii, 310p.
Series(Advances in Astrobiology and Biogeophysics)
Abstract NoteThis book examines the origins, development and fate of intelligent species in the observable part of our universe. It scrutinizes what kind of information about extraterrestrial intelligent life can be inferred from our own biological, cultural and scientific evolution and the likely future of mankind. There is emphasis on the geological conditions and consequences of life's conquest of land as the pre-condition for the emergence of life with our type of technical intelligence.

TitlePrimer on scientific programming with python
Author(s)Hans Petter Langtangen
Edition3rd
PublicationBerlin, Springer-Verlag, 2012.
Descriptionxxxii, 792p.
Series(Texts in Computational Science and Engineering)
Abstract NoteThe book serves as a first introduction to computer programming of scientific applications, using the high-level Python language. The exposition is example- and problem-oriented, where the applications are taken from mathematics, numerical calculus, statistics, physics, biology, and finance. The book teaches "Matlab-style" and procedural programming as well as object-oriented programming. High school mathematics is a required background, and it is advantageous to study classical and numerical one-variable calculus in parallel with reading this book. Besides learning how to program computers, the reader will also learn how to solve mathematical problems, arising in various branches of science and engineering, with the aid of numerical methods and programming. By blending programming, mathematics and scientific applications, the book lays a solid foundation for practicing computational science.
