Title  Quantum Theory from a Nonlinear Perspective : Riccati Equations in Fundamental Physics 
Author(s)  Schuch, Dieter 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2018. 
Description  XIV, 258 p. 15 illus., 7 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book provides a unique survey displaying the power of Riccati equations to describe reversible and irreversible processes in physics and, in particular, quantum physics. Quantum mechanics is supposedly linear, invariant under timereversal, conserving energy and, in contrast to classical theories, essentially based on the use of complex quantities. However, on a macroscopic level, processes apparently obey nonlinear irreversible evolution equations and dissipate energy. The Riccati equation, a nonlinear equation that can be linearized, has the potential to link these two worlds when applied to complex quantities. The nonlinearity can provide information about the phaseamplitude correlations of the complex quantities that cannot be obtained from the linearized form. As revealed in this wide ranging treatment, Riccati equations can also be found in many diverse fields of physics from BoseEinsteincondensates to cosmology. The book will appeal to graduate students and theoretical physicists interested in a consistent mathematical description of physical laws

Title  Differential and Difference Equations : A Comparison of Methods of Solution 
Author(s)  Maximon, Leonard C 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XV, 162 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book, intended for researchers and graduate students in physics, applied mathematics and engineering, presents a detailed comparison of the important methods of solution for linear differential and difference equations  variation of constants, reduction of order, Laplace transforms and generating functions  bringing out the similarities as well as the significant differences in the respective analyses. Equations of arbitrary order are studied, followed by a detailed analysis for equations of first and second order. Equations with polynomial coefficients are considered and explicit solutions for equations with linear coefficients are given, showing significant differences in the functional form of solutions of differential equations from those of difference equations. An alternative method of solution involving transformation of both the dependent and independent variables is given for both differential and difference equations. A comprehensive, detailed treatment of Green???s functions and the associated initial and boundary conditions is presented for differential and difference equations of both arbitrary and second order. A dictionary of difference equations with polynomial coefficients provides a unique compilation of second order difference equations obeyed by the special functions of mathematical physics. Appendices augmenting the text include, in particular, a proof of Cramer???s rule, a detailed consideration of the role of the superposition principal in the Green???s function, and a derivation of the inverse of Laplace transforms and generating functions of particular use in the solution of second order linear differential and difference equations with linear coefficients

Title  Bifurcation in Autonomous and Nonautonomous Differential Equations with Discontinuities 
Author(s)  Akhmet, Marat;Kashkynbayev, Ardak 
Publication  Singapore, Springer Singapore, 2017. 
Description  XI, 166 p. 31 illus., 26 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book is devoted to bifurcation theory for autonomous and nonautonomous differential equations with discontinuities of different types. That is, those with jumps present either in the righthandside or in trajectories or in the arguments of solutions of equations. The results obtained in this book can be applied to various fields such as neural networks, brain dynamics, mechanical systems, weather phenomena, population dynamics, etc. Without any doubt, bifurcation theory should be further developed to different types of differential equations. In this sense, the present book will be a leading one in this field. The reader will benefit from the recent results of the theory and will learn in the very concrete way how to apply this theory to differential equations with various types of discontinuity. Moreover, the reader will learn new ways to analyze nonautonomous bifurcation scenarios in these equations. The book will be of a big interest both for ??beginners and experts in the field. For the former group of specialists, that is, undergraduate and graduate students, the book will be useful since it provides a strong impression that bifurcation theory can be developed not only for discrete and continuous systems, but those which combine these systems in very different ways. The latter group of specialists will find in this book several powerful instruments developed for the theory of discontinuous dynamical systems with variable moments of impacts, differential equations with piecewise constant arguments of generalized type and Filippov systems. A significant benefit of the present book is expected to be for those who consider bifurcations in systems with impulses since they are presumably nonautonomous systems

Title  Ordinary Differential Equations : Mathematical Tools for Physicists 
Author(s)  TahirKheli, Raza 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2018. 
Description  XXII, 408 p. 65 illus., 1 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This textbook describes rules and procedures for the use of Differential Operators (DO) in Ordinary Differential Equations (ODE ). The book provides a detailed theoretical and numerical description of ODE. It presents a large variety of ODE and the chosen groups are used to solve a host of physical problems. Solving these problems is of interest primarily to students of science, such as physics, engineering, biology and chemistry. Scientists are greatly assisted by using the DO obeying several simple algebraic rules. The book describes these rules and, to help the reader, the vocabulary and the definitions used throughout the text are provided. A thorough description of the relatively straightforward methodology for solving ODE is given. The book provides solutions to a large number of associated problems. ODE that are integrable, or those that have one of the two variables missing in any explicit form are also treated with solved problems. The physics and applicable mathematics are explained and many associated problems are analyzed and solved in detail. Numerical solutions are analyzed and the level of exactness obtained under various approximations is discussed in detail.

Title  Dynamical Systems and Cosmology 
Author(s)  Coley, A.A 
Publication  Dordrecht, Springer Netherlands, 2003. 
Description  VIII, 195 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  Dynamical systems theory is especially wellsuited for determining the possible asymptotic states (at both early and late times) of cosmological models, particularly when the governing equations are a finite system of autonomous ordinary differential equations. In this book we discuss cosmological models as dynamical systems, with particular emphasis on applications in the early Universe. We point out the important role of selfsimilar models. We review the asymptotic properties of spatially homogeneous perfect fluid models in general relativity. We then discuss results concerning scalar field models with an exponential potential (both with and without barotropic matter). Finally, we discuss the dynamical properties of cosmological models derived from the string effective action. This book is a valuable source for all graduate students and professional astronomers who are interested in modern developments in cosmology

Title  Order and Chaos in Dynamical Astronomy 
Author(s)  Contopoulos, George 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2002. 
Description  XIII, 624 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  The study of orbits in dynamical systems and the theory of order and chaos has progressed enormously over the last few decades. It thus became an essential tool in dynamical astronomy. The book is the first to provide a general overview of order and chaos in dynamical astronomy. The progress of the theory of chaos has a profound impact on galactic dynamics. It has even invaded celestial mechanics, since chaos was found in the solar system which in the past was considered as a prototype of order. The book provides a unifying approach to these topics from an author who has spent more than 50 years of research in the field. The first part treats order and chaos in general. The other two parts deal with order and chaos in galaxies and with other applications in dynamical astronomy, ranging from celestial mechanics to general relativity and cosmology. This book, addressing especially the astrophysics, is also written as a textbook on dynamical systems for students in physics

Title  Normal Modes and Localization in Nonlinear Systems 
Author(s)  Vakakis, Alexander F 
Publication  Dordrecht, Springer Netherlands, 2001. 
Description  VI, 294 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  The nonlinear normal modes of a parametrically excited cantilever beam are constructed by directly applying the method of multiple scales to the governing integralpartial differential equation and associated boundary conditions. The effect of the inertia and curvature nonlin?? earities and the parametric excitation on the spatial distribution of the deflection is examined. The results are compared with those obtained by using a singlemode discretization. In the absence of linear viscous and quadratic damping, it is shown that there are nonlinear normal modes, as defined by Rosenberg, even in the presence of a principal parametric excitation. Furthermore, the nonlinear mode shape obtained with the direct approach is compared with that obtained with the discretization approach for some values of the excitation frequency. In the singlemode discretization, the spatial distribution of the deflection is assumed a priori to be given by the linear mode shape ??n, which is parametrically excited, as Equation (41). Thus, the mode shape is not influenced by the nonlinear curvature and nonlinear damping. On the other hand, in the direct approach, the mode shape is not assumed a priori; the nonlinear effects modify the linear mode shape ??n. Therefore, in the case of largeamplitude oscillations, the singlemode discretization may yield inaccurate mode shapes. References 1. Vakakis, A. F., Manevitch, L. I., Mikhlin, Y. v., Pilipchuk, V.

Title  Dynamical Systems with Applications using MAPLE 
Author(s)  Lynch, Stephen 
Publication  Boston, MA, 1. Birkh??user Boston
2. Imprint: Birkh??user, 2001. 
Description  XIII, 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 handson 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.
