Description  XXV, 405 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  E. KONTIZAS Astronomical Institute National Observatory of Athens P. O. Box 20048 Athens GR1181O GREECE The international conference on "WideField Spectroscopy" and its sub?? ject matter were agreed during the general assembly of the International Astronomical Union (IAU) in August 1994 by the Working Group of Com?? mision 9 "Wi deField Imaging". This meeting gave an opportunity to world experts on this subject to gather in Athens, in order to discuss the cur?? rent exploitation and the impending opportunities that exist in the area of multiobject spectroscopy, with particular emphasis on: 1. Astronomical instruments, data acquisition, processing and analysis techniques. 2. Astrophysical problems best tackled through widefield, multiobject spectroscopy. The new fibre optic technology offers an important tool for the advancement of basic research and the development of industrial applications. Astronom?? ical spectroscopy is a field of astronomy which has contributed much to the advancement of fundamental physics. The spectra of hot stars have been used to determine the wellknown Balmer formula for the wavelength of hydrogen lines, in the late 19th century. Since then, spectroscopy has made enormous progress in stellar atmosphere studies, in kinematics, and in the detection of high redshifts in the Universe. The traditional techniques of obtaining widefield spectroscopic data are based on slitless spectroscopy (objective prism). Several observations, world wide, make use ofthese tech?? niques in order to obtain information on the spectral properties of objects in large areas of the sky

Title  Physics and Chemistry of Metal Cluster Compounds : Model Systems for Small Metal Particles 
Author(s)  de Jongh, L.J 
Publication  Dordrecht, Springer Netherlands, 1994. 
Description  XII, 320 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  On Friday, February 20, 1980, I had the pleasure to be present at the inaugural lecture of my colleague Jan Reedijk, who had just been named at the Chair of Inorganic Chemistry of Leiden University. According to tradition, the ceremony took place in the impressive Hall of the old University Academy Building. In the course of his lecture, Jan mentioned a number of recent developments in chemistry which had struck him as particularly important or interesting. Among those was the synthesis of large metal cluster compounds, and, to my luck, he showed a slide ofthe molecular structure of [PtI9(C)b]4. (To my luck, since at traditional Leiden University it is quite unusual to show slides at such ceremonies.) This constituted my first acquaintance with this exciting new class of materials. I became immediately fascinated by this molecule, partly because of the esthetic beauty of its fivefold symmetry, partly because as a physicist it struck me that it could be visualized as an "embryonically small" metal particle, embedded in a shell of CO ligands

Title  Cooperative Dynamics in Complex Physical Systems : Proceedings of the Second Yukawa International Symposium, Kyoto, Japan, August 24???27, 1988 
Author(s)  Takayama, Hajime 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 1989. 
Description  XVI, 340 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  Many novel cooperative phenomena found in a variety of systems studied by scientists can be treated using the uniting principles of synergetics. Examples are frustrated and random systems, polymers, spin glasses, neural networks, chemical and biological systems, and fluids. In this book attention is focused on two main problems. First, how local, topological constraints (frustrations) can cause macroscopic cooperative behavior: related ideas initially developed for spin glasses are shown to play key roles also for optimization and the modeling of neural networks. Second, the dynamical constraints that arise from the nonlinear dynamics of the systems: the discussion covers turbulence in fluids, pattern formation, and conventional 1/f noise. The volume will be of interest to anyone wishing to understand the current development of work on complex systems, which is presently one of the most challenging subjects in statistical and condensed matter physics

Title  Thermodynamics and Statistical Mechanics 
Author(s)  Greiner, Walter;Neise, Ludwig;St??cker, Horst 
Publication  New York, NY, Springer New York, 1995. 
Description  XII, 464 p. 2 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  More than a generation of Germanspeaking students around the world have worked their way to an understanding and appreciation of the power and beauty of modem theoretical physicswith mathematics, the most fundamental of sciencesusing WaIter Greiner's textbooks as their guide. The idea of developing a coherent, complete presentation of an entire field of science in a series of closely related textbooks is not a new one. Many older physicians remember with real pleasure their sense of adventure and discovery as they worked their ways through the classic series by Sommerfeld, by Planck and by Landau and Lifshitz. From the students' viewpoint, there are a great many obvious advantages to be gained through use of consistent notation, logical ordering of topics and coherence of presentation; beyond this, the complete coverage of the science provides a unique opportunity for the author to convey his personal enthusiasm and love for his subject. These volumes on classical physics, finally available in English, complement Greiner's texts on quantum physics, most of which have been available to Englishspeaking audiences for some time. The complete set of books will thus provide a coherent view of physics that includes, in classical physics, thermodynamics and statistical mechanics, classical dynam?? ics, electromagnetism, and general relativity; and in quantum physics, quantum mechanics, symmetries, relativistic quantum mechanics, quantum electro and chromodynamics, and the gauge theory of weak interactions

Title  Probability, Statistical Optics, and Data Testing : A Problem Solving Approach 
Author(s)  Frieden, B.R 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 1983. 
Description  online resource 
Abstract Note  A basic skill in probability is practically demanded nowadays in many bran?? ches of optics, especially in image science. On the other hand, there is no text presently available that develops probability, and its companion fields stochastic processes and statistics, from the optical perspective. [Short of a book, a chapter was recently written for this purpose; see B. R. Frieden (ed. ): The Computer in Optical Research, Topics in Applied Physics, Vol. 41 (Springer, Berlin, Heidelberg, New York 1980) Chap. 3] Most standard texts either use illustrative examples and problems from electrical engineering or from the life sciences. The present book is meant to remedy this situation, by teaching probability with the specific needs of the optical researcher in mind. Virtually all the illustrative examples and applications of the theory are from image science and other fields of optics. One might say that photons have replaced electrons in nearly all considera?? tions here. We hope, in this manner, to make the learning of probability a pleasant and absorbing experience for optical workers. Some of the remaining applications are from information theory, a con?? cept which complements image science in particular. As will be seen, there are numerous tieins between the two concepts. Students will be adequately prepared for the material in this book if they have had a course in calculus, and know the basics of matrix manipulation

Title  Models of Neural Networks 
Author(s)  Domany, Eytan;Hemmen, J. Leo van;Schulten, Klaus 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 1991. 
Description  XVI, 347 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  One of the great inteJlectual cha1lenges for the next few decades is the question of brain organization. What is the basic mechanism for storage of memory? What are the processes that serve as the interphase between the basically chemical processes of the body and the very specific and nonstatistical operations in the brain? Above all. how is concept formation achieved in the human brain? I wonder whether the spirit of the physics that will be involved in these studies will not be akin to that which moved the founders of the ''rational foundation of thermodynamics". CN. Yangl 10 The human brain is said 10 have roughly 10 neurons connected through about 14 10 synapses. Each neuron is itself a complex device which compares and integrates incoming electrical signals and relays a nonlinear response to other neurons. The brain certainly exceeds in complexity any system which physicists have studied in the past. Nevertheless, there do exist many analogies of the We have witnessed during the last decade brain to simpler physical systems
