Fractals in physics : proceedings of the Sixth Trieste International Symposium on Fractals in Physics, ICTP, Trieste, Italy, July 9-12, 1985 by E Tosatti( Book )

4 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 405 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The concepts of self-similarity and scale invariance have arisen independently in several areas. One is the study of the critical properties of phase transitions; another is fractal geometry, which involves the concept of (non-integer) fractal dimension. These two areas have now come together, and their methods have extended to various fields of physics. The purpose of this Symposium was to provide an overview of the physical phenomena that manifest scale invariance and fractal properties with the aim of bringing out the common mathematical features. The emphasis was on theoretical and experimental work related to well defined physical phenomena
Physics and mathematics of the nervous system : proceedings of a Summer School organized by the International Centre for Theoretical Physics, Trieste, and the Institute for Information Sciences, University of Tübingen, held at Trieste, August 21-31, 1973 by Michael Conrad( Book )

4 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is the record and product of the Summer School on the Physics and Mathematics of the Nervous System, held at the International Centre for Theoretical Physics in Trieste from August 21-31, 1973, and jointly organized by the Institute for Information Sciences, University of Tlibingen and by the Centre. The school served to bring biologists, physicists and mathemati­ cians together to exchange ideas about the nervous system and brain, and also to introduce young scientists to the field. The program, attended by more than a hundred scientists, was interdisciplinary both in character and participation. The primary support for the school was provided by the Volkswagen Foundation of West Germany. We are particularly indebted to Drs. G. Gambke, M. -L Zarnitz, and H. Penschuck of the Foundation for their in­ terest in and help with the project. The school also received major support from the International Centre for Theoretical Physics in Trieste and its sponsoring agencies, including the use of its excellent facili­ ties. We are deeply indebted to Professor A. Salam for his kind co­ operation and also to Professor P. Budini, Dr. A. M. Hamende, and to the many members of the Centre staff whose hospitality and efficiency con­ tributed so much to the success of the school. We are pleased to acknow­ ledge the generous ~id and cooperation of the University of Tlibingen and would like to thank its President, A

Composite media and homogenization theory : an International Centre for Theoretical Physics workshop, Trieste, Italy, January 1990 by Gianni Dal Maso( Book )

3 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 210 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume contains the Proceedings of the Workshop on Composite Media and Homogenization Theory held in Trieste, Italy, from January 15 to 26, 1990. The workshop was organized by the International Centre for Theo retical Physics (ICTP); part of the activity was co-sponsored by the Interna tional School for Advanced Studies (SISSA). The workshop covered a broad range of topics in the mathematical the ory of composite materials and homogenization. Among the specific areas of focus were homogenization of periodic and nonperiodic structures, porous me dia, asymptotic analysis for linear and nonlinear problems, optimal bounds for effective moduli, waves in composite materials, optimal design and relaxation, random media. The workshop was actively attended by more than 100 participants from 23 countries. In the afternoon sessions 35 seminars were delivered by the participants. This volume contains research articles corresponding to 14 of the 20 invited talks which were presented. Its content will be of interest both to mathematicians working in the field and to applied mathematicians and engineers interested in modelling the behaviour of composite and random media We are pleased to express here our thanks to the ICTP for having made this workshop possible, to Ms. A. Bergamo for her continuous help during the workshop, and to Ms. C. Parma for her collaboration in editing the proceedings.

Physics of desertification by Farouk El-Baz( Book )

7 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Deserts are parts of the Earth that receive little or no rain; 25 cm or less per year. The physical processes that act upon these parched lands are vastly different from those that shape the more humid parts of the terrestrial landmasses. In the desert, wind is a major agent of erosion and transportation. As the results of recent space missions have indicated, this is also true in the case of the planet Mars. Thus, our understanding of desert processes sheds light on fundamental planetary processes that may apply on any planetary body that is enveloped by a windy atmosphere. An understanding of the physical layout of arid lands, and the nature of processes that initiate changes therein is also fundamental to thoughtful utilization of these lands for the benefit of mankind. It is with this in mind that we prepared this book for publication. We believe that the collection of articles in this book will be useful to scientists who are interested in desert landforms and processes, and to planners of economic develop­ ment of arid lands. The book also serves as a guide for students as to the state of our knowledge in this field as well as to the topics that require additional research
