Mathematical and physical aspects of stochastic mechanics by Philippe Blanchard ( Book )
13 editions published between 1987 and 2013 in English and held by 365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This lecture is meant as an introduction to stochastic mechanics for graduate students. The concepts and most of the statements are formulated in precise and exact mathematical language. Nevertheless, the emphasis is on the physical concepts. The authors discuss thoroughly the aspects of stochastic mechanics in quantum mechanics, firstly as a way of quantization as proposed by E. Nelson and secondly, as a tool to give a more detailed description of microphysics within the framework of the standard form of quantum theory. Another part of their work treats stochastic mechanics as a general description of a class of dynamical systems disturbed by some isotropic translation invariant noise thus extending Nelson's theory within the framework of classical physics. The necessary tools like stochastic processes, in particular those used in mathematical physics, existence and construction of diffusion processes as well as stochastic variational principles are presented in detail. Here is certainly an excellent text on this important field of mathematical physics
Random walks and diffusions on graphs and databases an introduction by Philippe Blanchard ( )
10 editions published in 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 357 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Most networks and databases that humans have to deal with contain large, albeit finite number of units. Their structure, for maintaining functional consistency of the components, is essentially not random and calls for a precise quantitative description of relations between nodes (or data units) and all network components. This book is an introduction, for both graduate students and newcomers to the field, to the theory of graphs and random walks on such graphs. The methods based on random walks and diffusions for exploring the structure of finite connected graphs and databases are reviewed (M
New methods and results in non-linear field equations : proceedings of a conference held at the University of Bielefeld, Fed. Rep. of Germany, 7-10 July 1987 by Philippe Katerine ( Book )
11 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 314 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Quantum effects may be modelled by means of stochastic perturbation of non-linear partial differential (field) equations. Contributions to this field of research are collected in this volume. Finite dimensional stochastically perturbed Hamiltonian systems and infinite dimensional white noise analysis are treated. The main part concerns problems encountered in deterministic equations. Papers treat the existence of solutions for given initial data, the existence of non-linear bound states or solitary waves including a thorough discussion of various approaches to stability, and global properties (e.g. time decay properties) for non-linear wave equations. This volume provides a good survey of present-day research in non-linear problems of quantum theory for researchers and graduate students
Decoherence : theoretical, experimental, and conceptual problems : proceedings of a workshop held at Bielefeld, Germany, 10-14 November 1998 ( Book )
13 editions published between 2000 and 2011 in English and German and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this book the process of decoherence is reviewed from both the theoretical and the experimental physicist's point of view. Implications of this important concept for fundamental problems of quantum theory and for chemistry and biology are also given. This broad review of decoherence addresses researchers and graduate students. It could also be used in seminar work
Quantum future : from Volta and Como to the present and beyond : proceedings of the Xth Max Born Symposium held in Przesieka, Poland, 24-27 September 1997 by Max Born Symposium ( Book )
11 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume presents detailed discussions of a number of unsolved conceptual and technical issues arising, in particular, in the foundations of quantum theory and the philosophy of science. The 14 contributions capture a wide variety of viewpoints and backgrounds. Some chapters deal primarily with the main experimental issues; others focus on theoretical and philosophical questions. In addition, attempts are made to systematically analyze ways in which quantum physics can be connected to the neurosciences and consciousness research
Mathematical methods in physics : distributions, Hilbert space operators, and variational methods by Philippe Blanchard ( Book )
13 editions published between 2002 and 2013 in English and held by 242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Physics has long been regarded as a wellspring of mathematical problems. Mathematical Methods in Physics is a self-contained presentation, driven by historic motivations, excellent examples, detailed proofs, and a focus on those parts of mathematics that are needed in more ambitious courses on quantum mechanics and classical and quantum field theory. A comprehensive bibliography and index round out the work. Key Topics: Part I: A brief introduction to (Schwartz) distribution theory; Elements from the theories of ultra distributions and hyperfunctions are given in addition to some deeper results for Schwartz distributions, thus providing a rather comprehensive introduction to the theory of generalized functions. Basic properties of and basic properties for distributions are developed with applications to constant coefficient ODEs and PDEs; the relation between distributions and holomorphic functions is developed as well. * Part II: Fundamental facts about Hilbert spaces and their geometry. The theory of linear (bounded and unbounded) operators is developed, focusing on results needed for the theory of Schr"dinger operators. The spectral theory for self-adjoint operators is given in some detail. * Part III: Treats the direct methods of the calculus of variations and their applications to boundary- and eigenvalue-problems for linear and nonlinear partial differential operators, concludes with a discussion of the Hohenberg--Kohn variational principle. * Appendices: Proofs of more general and deeper results, including completions, metrizable Hausdorff locally convex topological vector spaces, Baire's theorem and its main consequences, bilinear functionals. Aimed primarily at a broad community of graduate students in mathematics, mathematical physics, physics and engineering, as well as researchers in these disciplines

Mathematical analysis of urban spatial networks by Philippe Blanchard ( Book )
2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The intent of the present monograph is to lay down the theoretical foundations for studying the topology of compact urban patterns, using methods from spectral graph theory and statistical physics. These methods are demonstrated as tools to investigate the structure of a number of real cities with widely differing properties: medieval Cierman cities, the webs of city canals in Amster dam and Venice; and a modern urban structure such as found in Manhattan." "Last but not least, the book concludes by providing a brief overview of possible applications that will eventually lead to a useful body of knowledge for architects, urban planners and civil engineers."--Jacket

Variational methods in mathematical physics : a unified approach by Philippe Blanchard ( Book )
2 editions published in 1992 in German and English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This textbook is a comprehensive introduction to variational methods. Its unifying aspect, based on appropriate concepts of compactness, is the study of critical points of functionals via direct methods. It shows the interactions between linear and nonlinear functional analysis. Addressing in particular the interests of physicists, the authors treat in detail the variational problems of mechanics and classical field theories, writing on local linear and nonlinear boundary and eigenvalue problems of important classes of nonlinear partial differential equations, and giving more recent results on Thomas-Fermi theory and on problems involving critical nonlinearities. This book is an excellentintroduction for students in mathematics and mathematical physics
