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

Title  Statistical Physics and Spatial Statistics : The Art of Analyzing and Modeling Spatial Structures and Pattern Formation 
Author(s)  Mecke, Klaus R;Stoyan, Dietrich 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2000. 
Description  XII, 420 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  Modern physics is confronted with a large variety of complex spatial patterns. Although both spatial statisticians and statistical physicists study random geometrical structures, there has been only little interaction between the two up to now because of different traditions and languages. This volume aims to change this situation by presenting in a clear way fundamental concepts of spatial statistics which are of great potential value for condensed matter physics and materials sciences in general, and for porous media, percolation and Gibbs processes in particular. Geometric aspects, in particular ideas of stochastic and integral geometry, play a central role throughout. With nonspecialist researchers and graduate students also in mind, prominent physicists give an excellent introduction here to modern ideas of statistical physics pertinent to this exciting field of research

Title  Beyond the Einstein Addition Law and its Gyroscopic Thomas Precession : The Theory of Gyrogroups and Gyrovector Spaces 
Author(s)  Ungar, A.A 
Publication  Dordrecht, Springer Netherlands, 2002. 
Description  464 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  Evidence that Einstein's addition is regulated by the Thomas precession has come to light, turning the notorious Thomas precession, previously considered the ugly duckling of special relativity theory, into the beautiful swan of gyrogroup and gyrovector space theory, where it has been extended by abstraction into an automorphism generator, called the Thomas gyration. The Thomas gyration, in turn, allows the introduction of vectors into hyperbolic geometry, where they are called gyrovectors, in such a way that Einstein's velocity additions turns out to be a gyrovector addition. Einstein's addition thus becomes a gyrocommutative, gyroassociative gyrogroup operation in the same way that ordinary vector addition is a commutative, associative group operation. Some gyrogroups of gyrovectors admit scalar multiplication, giving rise to gyrovector spaces in the same way that some groups of vectors that admit scalar multiplication give rise to vector spaces. Furthermore, gyrovector spaces form the setting for hyperbolic geometry in the same way that vector spaces form the setting for Euclidean geometry. In particular, the gyrovector space with gyrovector addition given by Einstein's (M??bius') addition forms the setting for the Beltrami (Poincar??) ball model of hyperbolic geometry. The gyrogrouptheoretic techniques developed in this book for use in relativity physics and in hyperbolic geometry allow one to solve old and new important problems in relativity physics. A case in point is Einstein's 1905 view of the Lorentz length contraction, which was contradicted in 1959 by Penrose, Terrell and others. The application of gyrogrouptheoretic techniques clearly tilt the balance in favor of Einstein

Title  Mechanics: From Theory to Computation : Essays in Honor of JuanCarlos Simo 
Author(s)  Science, Journal of Nonlinear 
Publication  New York, NY, Springer New York, 2000. 
Description  X, 532 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  Starting in 1996, a sequence of articles appeared in the Journal of Nonlinear Science dedicated to the memory of one of its original editors, JuanCarlos Simo, Applied Me?? chanics, Stanford University. Sadly, JuanCarlos passed away at an early age in 1994. We lost a brilliant colleague and a wonderful person. These articles are collected in the present volume. Many of them are updated and corrected especially for this occasion. These essays are in areas of scientific interest of JuanCarlos, including mechanics (particles, rigid bodies, fluids, elasticity, plastic?? ity, etc.), geometry, applied dynamics, and, of course, computation. His interests were extremely broadhe did not see boundaries between computation, mathematics, me?? chanics, and dynamics, and, in that sense, he ideally reflected the spirit of the journal and many of the most exciting areas of current scientific interest. JuanCarlos was one of those select and gifted people who could cross interdisci?? plinary boundaries with extremely high quality and productive interactions of lasting value. His contributions, ranging from concrete engineering problems to fundamental mathematical theorems in geometric mechanics, are remarkable. In current conferences as well as in scientific books and articles, and over a wide range of subjects, one frequently hears how his ideas as well as specific results are often used and quotedthis is one indication of just how profound and fundamental his work has impacted the community

Title  Introduzione ai frattali in fisica 
Author(s)  Ratti, Sergio Peppino 
Publication  Milano, Springer Milan, 2011. 
Description  XIII, 309 pagg : online resource 
Abstract Note  La geometria frattale permette di caratterizzare le strutture complesse e irregolari che godono della propriet?? di invarianza di scala. Introdotta da Mandelbrot nel 1975, spiega in modo convincente che la natura ci pone di fronte a molti esempi di strutture complesse che godono di propriet?? peculiari: ?? un fatto che in natura l???irregolarit?? sia molto comune, come dimostrano le strutture di piante, montagne, nuvole e fulmini. Il volume nasce dall???esperienza didattica sviluppata dall???autore in oltre un decennio di insegnamento di Istituzioni di Fisica Superiore presso l???Universit?? di Pavia e intende colmare la lacuna nel panorama italiano di testi didattici su tematiche frattali. Parte dalla definizione di oggetti e di funzioni frattali, introducendo la dimensione ???non intera??? e la ???codimensione??? di un insieme, di una figura geometrica e la sua estensione a una funzione matematica irregolare. Segue l???introduzione dei frattali stocastici che tengono conto della natura parzialmente caotica dei fenomeni fisici. Di particolare rilevanza un capitolo che compendia la trattazione di fenomeni caotici e introduce gli attrattori strani di Edward Lorenz. Infine si affronta l???applicazione dei concetti frattali alla fisica cosmica, all???econofisica e alla descrizione dell???inquinamento prodotto da due disastri ambientali: l???incidente chimico di Seveso e quello nucleare di Chernobyl. Il testo si rivolge in primo luogo agli studenti dei corsi di Laurea Magistrale in Fisica, Chimica, Ingegneria e Scienze Ambientali; pu?? costituire comunque un valido ausilio come testo complementare di natura applicativa. Il carattere propedeutico del volume si presta agevolmente a un apprendimento autonomo individuale

Title  Hyperbolic Triangle Centers : The Special Relativistic Approach 
Author(s)  Ungar, A.A 
Publication  Dordrecht, Springer Netherlands, 2010. 
Description  XVI, 319 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  After A. Ungar had introduced vector algebra and Cartesian coordinates into hyperbolic geometry in his earlier books, along with novel applications in Einstein???s special theory of relativity, the purpose of his new book is to introduce hyperbolic barycentric coordinates, another important concept to embed Euclidean geometry into hyperbolic geometry. It will be demonstrated that, in full analogy to classical mechanics where barycentric coordinates are related to the Newtonian mass, barycentric coordinates are related to the Einsteinian relativistic mass in hyperbolic geometry. Contrary to general belief, Einstein???s relativistic mass hence meshes up extraordinarily well with Minkowski???s fourvector formalism of special relativity. In Euclidean geometry, barycentric coordinates can be used to determine various triangle centers. While there are many known Euclidean triangle centers, only few hyperbolic triangle centers are known, and none of the known hyperbolic triangle centers has been determined analytically with respect to its hyperbolic triangle vertices. In his recent research, the author set the ground for investigating hyperbolic triangle centers via hyperbolic barycentric coordinates, and one of the purposes of this book is to initiate a study of hyperbolic triangle centers in full analogy with the rich study of Euclidean triangle centers. Owing to its novelty, the book is aimed at a large audience: it can be enjoyed equally by upperlevel undergraduates, graduate students, researchers and academics in geometry, abstract algebra, theoretical physics and astronomy. For a fruitful reading of this book, familiarity with Euclidean geometry is assumed. Mathematicalphysicists and theoretical physicists are likely to enjoy the study of Einstein???s special relativity in terms of its underlying hyperbolic geometry. Geometers may enjoy the hunt for new hyperbolic triangle centers and, finally, astronomers may use hyperbolic barycentric coordinates in the velocity space of cosmology

Title  Classical Mechanics : An Introduction 
Author(s)  Strauch, Dieter 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2009. 
Description  XXI, 405 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  This upperlevel undergraduate and beginning graduate textbook primarily covers the theory and application of Newtonian and Lagrangian, but also of Hamiltonian mechanics. In addition, included are elements of continuum mechanics and the accompanying classical field theory, wherein fourvector notation is introduced without explicit reference to special relativity. The author's writing style attempts to ease students through the primary and secondary results, thus building a solid foundation for understanding applications. So the text is thus structured around developments of the main ideas, explicit proofs, and numerous clarifications, comments and applications. Numerous examples illustrate the material and often present alternative approaches to the final results. Frequent references are made linking mechanics to other fields of physics. These lecture notes have been used frequently by students to prepare for written and/or oral examinations. Summaries and problems conclude chapters and appendices supply needed background topics

Title  Spacetime, Geometry and Gravitation 
Author(s)  Sharan, Pankaj 
Publication  Basel, 1. Birkh??user Basel

Description  XIV, 355 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  This is an introductory book on the general theory of relativity based partly on lectures given to students of M.Sc. Physics at my university. The book is divided into three parts. The ?rst part is a preliminary course on general relativity with minimum preparation. The second part builds the ma ematical background and the third part deals with topics where mathematics developed in the second part is needed. The ?rst chapter gives a general background and introduction. This is f lowed by an introduction to curvature through Gauss??? Theorema Egregium. This theorem expresses the curvature of a twodimensional surface in terms of intrinsic quantitiesrelatedtothein?nitesimaldistancefunctiononthesurface.Thestudent isintroducedtothemetrictensor,Christo?elsymbolsandRiemanncurvaturet sor by elementary methods in the familiar and visualizable case of two dimensions. This early introduction to geometric quantities equips a student to learn simpler topics in general relativity like the Newtonian limit, red shift, the Schwarzschild solution, precession of the perihelion and bending of light in a gravitational ?eld. Part II (chapters 5 to 10) is an introduction to Riemannian geometry as  quired by general relativity. This is done from the beginning, starting with vectors and tensors. I believe that students of physics grasp physical concepts better if they are not shaky about the mathematics involved
