Gedankenmaterie by Jean-Pierre Changeux( Book )

2 editions published in 1992 in German and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Was ist die Natur mathematischer Objekte? Existieren sie unabh{ngig vom Gehirn des Menschen oder sind sie das Produkt der Gehirnaktivit{t? Kann schlie~lich echte k}nstliche Intelligenz aus unbelebter Materie entstehen? Diese und weitere bis hin zur Ethik auftretende Fragen werden in Dialogform dynamisch von zwei hervorragenden Fachleuten der Mathematik und der Neurowissenschaften in diesem Buch diskutiert. Diese Darstellungsform soll den Leser anregen, selbst zu dem bis auf Plato zur}ckgehenden Problemkreis nachzudenken. Daf}r relevante Erkenntnisse der modernen mathematischen und neurobiologischen Hirnforschung werden kompetent und allgemeinverst{ndlich bereitgestellt

X-ray and neutron reflectivity : principles and applications by W Beiglböck( )

3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is the first comprehensive introduction to X-ray and neutron reflectivity techniques and illustrates them with many examples. After a pedagogical introduction on the interaction of X-rays and neutrons with matter, the interplay between the statistics of rough surfaces and interfaces and the scattering of radiation is considered in detail. Specular reflectivity and diffuse scattering are discussed next , in chapters 3 and 4 . The approximations are rigorously introduced and many experimental effects are discussed. The specific aspects of neutron reflectivity require separate treatment, given in chapter 5. Chapter 6 turns to X-ray reflectivity by rough multilayers. Eventually, chapter 7 introduces and discusses the by now well-established method of grazing incidence small angle X-ray scattering to investigate nanostructures. For the second edition, the material has been completely reorganized so as to meet the demand for a modern multi-author textbook for PhD students and young researchers. All chapters have further been throughly revised, updated and, where appropriate, suitably augmented. The first edition was been published as Lect. Notes Phys. m58 in the same series

Jets from young stars III : numerical MHD and instabilities by W Beiglböck( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This volume contains the lecture notes of the Third JETSET School on Jets from Young Stars focussing on Numerical MHD and Instabilities. The introductory lectures presented here cover the basic concepts of the numerical methods for the integration of hydrodynamic and magnetohydrodynamic equations and of the applications of these methods to the treatment of the instabilities relevant for the physics of stellar jets. The first part of the book contains an introduction to the finite difference and finite volume methods for computing the solutions of hyperbolic partial differential equations and a discussion of approximate Riemann solvers for both hydrodynamic and magnetohydrodynamic problems. The second part is devoted to the discussion of some of the main instability processes that may take place in stellar jets, namely: the Kelvin-Helmholtz, the radiative shock, the pressure driven and the thermal instabilities. Graduate students and young scientists will benefit from this book by learning how to use the fundamental tools used in computational astrophysical jet research
Theory and simulation of hard-sphere fluids and related systems by W Beiglböck( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Hard spheres and related objects (hard disks and mixtures of hard systems) are paradigmatic systems: indeed, they have served as a basis for the theoretical and numerical development of a number of fields, such as general liquids and fluids, amorphous solids, liquid crystals, colloids and granular matter, to name but a few. The present volume introduces and reviews some important basics and progress in the study of such systems. Their structure, thermodynamic properties, equations of state, as well as kinetic and transport properties are considered from different and complementary points of view. This book addresses graduate students, lecturers as well as researchers in statistical mechanics, physics of liquids, physical chemistry and chemical engineering

Aspects of physical biology : biological water, protein solutions, transport and replication by W Beiglböck( )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The application to Biology of the methodologies developed in Physics is attracting an increasing interest from the scientific community. It has led to the emergence of a new interdisciplinary field, called Physical Biology, with the aim of reaching a better understanding of the biological mechanisms at molecular and cellular levels. Statistical Mechanics in particular plays an important role in the development of this new field. For this reason, the XXth session of the famous Sitges Conference on Statistical Physics was dedicated to "Physical Biology: from Molecular Interactions to Cellular Behavior". As is by now tradition, a number of lectures were subsequently selected, expanded and updated for publication as lecture notes, so as to provide both a state-of-the-art introduction and overview to a number of subjects of broader interest and to favor the interchange and cross-fertilization of ideas between biologists and physicists. The present volume focuses on three main subtopics (biological water, protein solutions as well as transport and replication), presenting for each of the them the on-going debates on recent results. The role of water in biological processes, the mechanisms of protein folding, the phases and cooperative effects in biological solutions, the thermodynamic description of replication, transport and neural activity, all are subjects that are revised in this volume, based on new experiments and new theoretical interpretations
Integrable Hamiltonian hierarchies : spectral and geometric methods by V. S Gerdjikov( )

This text presents a detailed derivation of the spectral properties of the Recursion Operators allowing one to derive all the fundamental properties of the soliton equations and to study their hierarchies
Chiral quark dynamics by Reinhard Alkofer( )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These notes give an introduction to the description of hadrons, i.e., mesons and baryons, within a quark model based on a chirally invariant quantum field theory. Emphasis is put on a didactic approach intended for graduate students with some background on functional integral techniques. Starting from QCD a motivation of a specific form of the effective quark interaction is given. Functional integral bosonization leads to a theory describing successfully meson properties. It possesses solitonic solutions which are identified as baryons. Via functional integral techniques a Faddeev equation for baryons describing them as bound states of a diquark and a quark is derived. Finally, a unification of these two complementary pictures of baryons is proposed
The rotation of sun and stars by J.-P Rozelot( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Sun and stars rotate in different ways and at different rates of velocity, and knowledge of how they rotate is important in understanding the formation and evolution of stars and their structure. The wide variety of stars offers an equally wide variety of rotation rates and rotational evolution. From the slowly rotating stars to stars rotating close to their breakup velocities, different techniques and models have to be developed to study rotation and its effects on physical aspects of stars. In fact, one currently witnesses a complete renewal of astrophysical ideas about stellar rotation, mainly due to the development of new models including high-order effects of rotation and magnetism. This book, while not attempting to answer all questions about rotation, given that many issues still have to be further investigated, focuses on the basics and some particular aspects while aiming to show why it is important, from a physical point of view, to study stellar rotation. Based on courses given at a graduate school, these tutorial lectures will be of interest and useful to a rather broad audience of scientists and students
