Title  Geometric Approaches to Quantum Field Theory 
Author(s)  Finn, Kieran 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2021. 
Description  XIX, 202 p. 7 illus., 6 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  The ancient Greeks believed that everything in the Universe should be describable in terms of geometry. This thesis takes several steps towards realising this goal by introducing geometric descriptions of systems such as quantum gravity, fermionic particles and the origins of the Universe itself. The author extends the applicability of previous work by Vilkovisky, DeWitt and others to include theories with spin ?? and spin 2 degrees of freedom. In addition, he introduces a geometric description of the potential term in a quantum field theory through a process known as the Eisenhart lift. Finally, the methods are applied to the theory of inflation, where they show how geometry can help answer a longstanding question about the initial conditions of the Universe. This publication is aimed at graduate and advanced undergraduate students and provides a pedagogical introduction to the exciting topic of field space covariance and the complete geometrization of quantum field theory

Title  Discrete Causal Theory : Emergent Spacetime and the Causal Metric Hypothesis 
Author(s)  Dribus, Benjamin F 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XXX, 558 p. 154 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book evaluates and suggests potentially critical improvements to causal set theory, one of the bestmotivated approaches to the outstanding problems of fundamental physics. Spacetime structure is of central importance to physics beyond general relativity and the standard model. The causal metric hypothesis treats causal relations as the basis of this structure. The book develops the consequences of this hypothesis under the assumption of a fundamental scale, with smooth spacetime geometry viewed as emergent. This approach resembles causal set theory, but differs in important ways; for example, the relative viewpoint, emphasizing relations between pairs of events, and relationships between pairs of histories, is central. The book culminates in a dynamical law for quantum spacetime, derived via generalized path summation

Title  Marcel Grossmann : For the Love of Mathematics 
Author(s)  GrafGrossmann, Claudia 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2018. 
Description  XVIII, 263 p. 91 illus., 1 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  Zurich, summer 1912. Albert Einstein has just returned from Prague to the city on the Limmat. He sends a plea for help to his former fellow student, the mathematician Marcel Grossmann (18781936), for he is in need of assistance with the mathematical calculations of his general theory of relativity. What then follows is one of the most fascinating chapters of science history, with farreaching consequences for the lives of the two friends. Marcel Grossmann???s granddaughter paints here a picture of a fiery and manytalented scientist and patriot. She traces the influence of an entrepreneurial family during Germany???s rapid industrial expansion in the late 19th century. The family???s fluctuating fortunes take the story to the vibrant city of Budapest on the Danube; they enable readers to sense the pioneering spirit at Zurich???s young Polytechnic Institute (now ETH Zurich) ??? but also reflect the worries and hardships of the First World War and interwar years. The Foreword is written by Prof. Remo Ruffini, founder and president of the International Center for Relativistic Astrophysics and the Marcel Grossmann Meetings. Last but not least, an extensive contribution by Dr. Tilman Sauer offers a scientifichistorical appreciation of Marcel Grossmann???s enduring contributions

Title  Johannes Kepler : The Order of Things 
Author(s)  Osterhage, Wolfgang 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2020. 
Description  IX, 132 p. 24 illus., 10 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book traces the development of Kepler???s ideas along with his unsteady wanderings in a world dominated by religious turmoil. Johannes Kepler, like Galileo, was a supporter of the Copernican heliocentric world model. From an early stage, his principal objective was to discover ???the world behind the world???, i.e. to identify the underlying order and the secrets that make the world function as it does: the hidden world harmony. Kepler was driven both by his religious belief and Greek mysticism, which he found in ancient mathematics. His urge to find a construct encompassing the harmony of every possible aspect of the world ??? including astronomy, geometry and music ??? is seen as a manifestation of a deep human desire to bring order to the apparent chaos surrounding our existence. This desire continues to this day as we search for a theory that will finally unify and harmonise the forces of nature

Title  Colored Discrete Spaces : Higher Dimensional Combinatorial Maps and Quantum Gravity 
Author(s)  Lionni, Luca 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2018. 
Description  XVIII, 218 p. 107 illus., 98 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book provides a number of combinatorial tools that allow a systematic study of very general discrete spaces involved in the context of discrete quantum gravity. In any dimension D, we can discretize Euclidean gravity in the absence of matter over random discrete spaces obtained by gluing families of polytopes together in all possible ways. These spaces are then classified according to their curvature. In D=2, it results in a theory of random discrete spheres, which converge in the continuum limit towards the Brownian sphere, a random fractal space interpreted as a quantum random spacetime. In this limit, the continuous Liouville theory of D=2 quantum gravity is recovered. Previous results in higher dimension regarded triangulations, converging towards a continuum random tree, or gluings of simple building blocks of small sizes, for which multitrace matrix model results are recovered in any even dimension. In this book, the author develops a bijection with stacked twodimensional discrete surfaces for the most general colored building blocks, and details how it can be used to classify colored discrete spaces according to their curvature. The way in which this combinatorial problem arrises in discrete quantum gravity and random tensor models is discussed in detail

Title  Integrable Problems of Celestial Mechanics in Spaces of Constant Curvature 
Author(s)  Vozmischeva, T.G 
Publication  Dordrecht, Springer Netherlands, 2003. 
Description  XI, 184 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  Introd uction The problem of integrability or nonintegrability of dynamical systems is one of the central problems of mathematics and mechanics. Integrable cases are of considerable interest, since, by examining them, one can study general laws of behavior for the solutions of these systems. The classical approach to studying dynamical systems assumes a search for explicit formulas for the solutions of motion equations and then their analysis. This approach stimulated the development of new areas in mathematics, such as the al?? gebraic integration and the theory of elliptic and theta functions. In spite of this, the qualitative methods of studying dynamical systems are much actual. It was Poincare who founded the qualitative theory of differential equa?? tions. Poincare, working out qualitative methods, studied the problems of celestial mechanics and cosmology in which it is especially important to understand the behavior of trajectories of motion, i.e., the solutions of differential equations at infinite time. Namely, beginning from Poincare systems of equations (in connection with the study of the problems of ce?? lestial mechanics), the righthand parts of which don't depend explicitly on the independent variable of time, i.e., dynamical systems, are studied

Title  Orientations and Rotations : Computations in Crystallographic Textures 
Author(s)  Morawiec, Adam 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2004. 
Description  X, 200 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  The book is about mathematical and computational foundations of texture analysis. Numerical techniques are indispensable in texture analysis, so the book is primarily addressed to researchers and students using these techniques in practice. Orientations and Rotations is very different from other books on textures in its content and focal point. Major part of the book is devoted to orientations and rotations in general. Opening chapters contain an extensive and thorough introduction to rotations in three dimensions (including parameterizations and geometry of the rotation space). Further chapters are also general but they will be of interest for readers dealing with orientations of symmetric objects. This subject is essential for crystallographic textures since most crystal structures are symmetric. The final chapters concern more practical aspects of textures (such as the determination of orientations from diffraction patterns and the calculation of effective elastic properties of polycrystals). The book will be of interest for scientists working on plasticity, grain boundaries, recrystallisation, grain growth, and numerous other issues in which textures must be taken into account. Because of the extensive parts on rotations in general, the book can be valuable for everyone dealing with rotations
