Title  Finslerian Geometries : A Meeting of Minds 
Author(s)  Antonelli, P.L 
Publication  Dordrecht, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Netherlands, 2000. 
Description  VIII, 312 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  The International Conference on Finsler and Lagrange Geometry and its Applications: A Meeting of Minds, took place August 1320, 1998 at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada. The main objective of this meeting was to help acquaint North American geometers with the extensive modern literature on Finsler geometry and Lagrange geometry of the Japanese and European schools, each with its own venerable history, on the one hand, and to communicate recent advances in stochastic theory and Hodge theory for Finsler manifolds by the younger North American school, on the other. The intent was to bring together practitioners of these schools of thought in a Canadian venue where there would be ample opportunity to exchange information and have cordial personal interactions. The present set of refereed papers begins ??with the Pedagogical Sec?? tion I, where introductory and brief survey articles are presented, one from the Japanese School and two from the European School (Romania and Hungary). These have been prepared for nonexperts with the intent of explaining basic points of view. The Section III is the main body of work. It is arranged in alphabetical order, by author. Section II gives a brief account of each of these contribu?? tions with a short reference list at the end. More extensive references are given in the individual articles

Title  Critical Regimes of TwoPhase Flows with a Polydisperse Solid Phase 
Author(s)  Barsky, Eugene 
Publication  Dordrecht, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Netherlands, 2010. 
Description  XVI, 348 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book brings to light peculiarities of the formation of critical regimes of twophase flows with a polydisperse solid phase. A definition of entropy is formulated on the basis of statistical analysis of these peculiarities. The physical meaning of entropy and its correlation with other parameters determining twophase flows are clearly defined. The interrelations and main differences between this entropy and the thermodynamic one are revealed. The main regularities of twophase flows both in critical and in other regimes are established using the notion of entropy. This parameter serves as a basis for a deeper insight into the physics of the process and for the development of exhaustive techniques of mass exchange estimation in such flows. The book is intended for graduate and postgraduate students of engineering studying twophase flows, and to scientists and engineers engaged in specific problems of such fields as chemical technology, mineral dressing, modern ceramics, microelectronics, pharmacology, power engineering, thermal engineering, etc. using flows with solid particles in their respective production methods

Title  Quantum Annealing and Related Optimization Methods 
Author(s)  Das, Arnab;Chakrabarti, Bikas K 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2005. 
Description  XIV, 378 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  Quantum annealing employs quantum fluctuations in frustrated systems or networks to anneal the system down to its ground state, or more generally to its socalled minimum cost state. Often this procedure turns out to be more effective, in multivariable optimization problems, than its classical counterpart utilizing tunable thermal fluctuations. This volume is divided into three parts. Part I is an extensive tutorial introduction familiarizing the reader with the background material necessary to follow the core of the book. Part II gives a comprehensive account of the fundamentals and applications of the quantum annealing method, and Part III compares quantum annealing with other related optimization methods. This is the first book entirely devoted to quantum annealing and will be both an invaluable primer and guidebook for all advanced students and researchers in this important field

Abstract Note  This textbook provides a comprehensive and instructive coverage of vehicular traffic flow dynamics and modeling. It makes this fascinating interdisciplinary topic, which to date was only documented in parts by specialized monographs, accessible to a broad readership. Numerous figures and problems with solutions help the reader to quickly understand and practice the presented concepts. This book is targeted at students of physics and traffic engineering and, more generally, also at students and professionals in computer science, mathematics, and interdisciplinary topics. It also offers material for project work in programming and simulation at college and university level. The main part, after presenting different categories of traffic data, is devoted to a mathematical description of the dynamics of traffic flow, covering macroscopic models which describe traffic in terms of density, as well as microscopic manyparticle models in which each particle corresponds to a vehicle and its driver.??Focus chapters on traffic instabilities and model calibration/validation present these topics in a novel and systematic way.????Finally, the theoretical framework is shown at work in selected applications such as trafficstate and traveltime estimation, intelligent transportation systems, traffic operations management, and a detailed physicsbased model for fuel consumption and emissions

Title  Variational Principles in Physics 
Author(s)  Basdevant, JeanLouis 
Publication  New York, NY, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer New York, 2007. 
Description  X, 183 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  Optimization under constraints is an essential part of everyday life. Indeed, we routinely solve problems by striking a balance between contradictory interests, individual desires and material contingencies. This notion of equilibrium was dear to thinkers of the enlightenment, as illustrated by Montesquieu???s famous formulation: "In all magistracies, the greatness of the power must be compensated by the brevity of the duration." Astonishingly, natural laws are guided by a similar principle. Variational principles have proven to be surprisingly fertile. For example, Fermat used variational methods to demonstrate that light follows the fastest route from one point to another, an idea which came to be known as Fermat???s principle, a cornerstone of geometrical optics. Variational Principles in Physics explains variational principles and charts their use throughout modern physics. The heart of the book is devoted to the analytical mechanics of Lagrange and Hamilton, the basic tools of any physicist. Prof. Basdevant also offers simple but rich first impressions of Einstein???s General Relativity, Feynman???s Quantum Mechanics, and more revealing and amazing interconnections between various fields of physics. A graduate of the Ecole Normale Superieure, JeanLouis Basdevant is Professor and former Chair of the Department of Physics at the Ecole Polytechnique, and Director of Research for the CNRS. Specializing in the theoretical physics of elementary particles, quantum field theory and astrophysics, Prof. Basdevant works in the LeprinceRinguet Laboratory at the Ecole Polytechnique

Title  Nonlinear Analysis, Differential Equations and Control 
Author(s)  Clarke, F.H;Stern, R.J 
Publication  Dordrecht, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Netherlands, 1999. 
Description  XIX, 602 p. 1 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  Recent years have witnessed important developments in those areas of the mathematical sciences where the basic model under study is a dynamical system such as a differential equation or control process. Many of these recent advances were made possible by parallel developments in nonlinear and nonsmooth analysis. The latter subjects, in general terms, encompass differential analysis and optimization theory in the absence of traditional linearity, convexity or smoothness assumptions. In the last three decades it has become increasingly recognized that nonlinear and nonsmooth behavior is naturally present and prevalent in dynamical models, and is therefore significant theoretically. This point of view has guided us in the organizational aspects of this ASI. Our goals were twofold: We intended to achieve "cross fertilization" between mathematicians who were working in a diverse range of problem areas, but who all shared an interest in nonlinear and nonsmooth analysis. More importantly, it was our goal to expose a young international audience (mainly graduate students and recent Ph. D. 's) to these important subjects. In that regard, there were heavy pedagogical demands placed upon the twelve speakers of the ASI, in meeting the needs of such a gathering. The talks, while exposing current areas of research activity, were required to be as introductory and comprehensive as possible. It is our belief that these goals were achieved, and that these proceedings bear this out. Each of the twelve speakers presented a minicourse of four or five hours duration

Title  Algorithms for Continuous Optimization : The State of the Art 
Author(s)  Spedicato, E 
Publication  Dordrecht, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Netherlands, 1994. 
Description  XV, 565 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  The NATO Advanced Study Institute on "Algorithms for continuous optimiza?? tion: the state of the art" was held September 518, 1993, at II Ciocco, Barga, Italy. It was attended by 75 students (among them many well known specialists in optimiza?? tion) from the following countries: Belgium, Brasil, Canada, China, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Rumania, Spain, Turkey, UK, USA, Venezuela. The lectures were given by 17 well known specialists in the field, from Brasil, China, Germany, Italy, Portugal, Russia, Sweden, UK, USA. Solving continuous optimization problems is a fundamental task in computational mathematics for applications in areas of engineering, economics, chemistry, biology and so on. Most real problems are nonlinear and can be of quite large size. Devel?? oping efficient algorithms for continuous optimization has been an important field of research in the last 30 years, with much additional impetus provided in the last decade by the availability of very fast and parallel computers. Techniques, like the simplex method, that were already considered fully developed thirty years ago have been thoroughly revised and enormously improved. The aim of this ASI was to present the state of the art in this field. While not all important aspects could be covered in the fifty hours of lectures (for instance multiob?? jective optimization had to be skipped), we believe that most important topics were presented, many of them by scientists who greatly contributed to their development
