Kolmogorov's heritage in mathematics by Éric Charpentier( )
14 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and held by 495 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A.N. Kolmogorov (b. Tambov 1903, d. Moscow 1987) was one of the most brilliant mathematicians that the world has ever known. Incredibly deep and creative, he was able to approach each subject with a completely new point of view: in a few magnificent pages, which are models of shrewdness and imagination, and which astounded his contemporaries, he changed drastically the landscape of the subject. Most mathematicians prove what they can, Kolmogorov was of those who prove what they want. For this book several world experts were asked to present one part of the mathematical heritage left to us by K
Morphogenesis origins of patterns and shapes by Paul Bourgine( )
11 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 372 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
What are the relations between the shape of a system of cities and that of fish school? Which events should happen in a cell in order that it participates to one of the finger of our hands? How to interpret the shape of a sand dune? This collective book written for the non-specialist addresses these questions and more generally, the fundamental issue of the emergence of forms and patterns in physical and living systems. It is a single book gathering the different aspects of morphogenesis and approaches developed in different disciplines on shape and pattern formation. Relying on the seminal works of D'Arcy Thompson, Alan Turing and René Thom, it confronts major examples like plant growth and shape, intra-cellular organization, evolution of living forms or motifs generated by crystals. A book essential to understand universal principles at work in the shapes and patterns surrounding us but also to avoid spurious analogies
Scale invariance from phase transitions to turbulence by Annick Lesne( )
12 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 355 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
During a century, from the Van der Waals mean field description (1874) of gases to the introduction of renormalization group (RG techniques 1970), thermodynamics and statistical physics were just unable to account for the incredible universality which was observed in numerous critical phenomena. The great success of RG techniques is not only to solve perfectly this challenge of critical behaviour in thermal transitions but to introduce extremely useful tools in a wide field of daily situations where a system exhibits scale invariance. The introduction of scaling, scale invariance and universality concepts has been a significant turn in modern physics and more generally in natural sciences. Since then, a new "physics of scaling laws and critical exponents", rooted in scaling approaches, allows quantitative descriptions of numerous phenomena, ranging from phase transitions to earthquakes, polymer conformations, heartbeat rhythm, diffusion, interface growth and roughening, DNA sequence, dynamical systems, chaos and turbulence. The chapters are jointly written by an experimentalist and a theorist. This book aims at a pedagogical overview, offering to the students and researchers a thorough conceptual background and a simple account of a wide range of applications. It presents a complete tour of both the formal advances and experimental results associated with the notion of scaling, in physics, chemistry and biology
The scientific legacy of Poincaré by Éric Charpentier( Book )
9 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in English and French and held by 324 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Henri Poincare (1854-1912) was one of the greatest scientists of his time, perhaps the last one to have mastered and expanded almost all areas in mathematics and theoretical physics. In this book, twenty world experts present one part of Poincare's extraordinary work. Each chapter treats one theme, presenting Poincare's approach, and achievements
Renormalization methods : critical phenomena, chaos, fractal structures by Annick Lesne( Book )
7 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Invariances d'échelle : des changements d'états à la turbulence by Michel Laguës( Book )
4 editions published between 2003 and 2008 in French and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Etude sur certains phénomènes physiques tel que le chaos, les polymères, la turbulence ou les supraconducteurs présentant des propriétés similaires sur toute une gamme d'échelles. Expose la révolution conceptuelle que les notions d'invariance d'échelle et d'universalité ont engendrée. Etude enrichie par la confrontation des résultats formels avec de nombreux exemples expérimentaux.--[Memento]

Chaos and coarse graining in statistical mechanics by Patrizia Castiglione( Book )
4 editions published in 2008 in French and English and held by 93 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"While statistical mechanics can describe the equilibrium state of systems with many degrees of freedom, and dynamical systems can explain the irregular evolution of systems with few degrees of freedom, new tools are needed to study the evolution of systems with many degrees of freedom. This book presents the basic aspects of chaotic systems, with emphasis on systems composed of a huge number of particles." "The first part of the book introduces the basic concepts of chaotic dynamics. The book then moves on to explore the role of ergodicity and chaos for the validity of statistical laws. The last part of the book is devoted to the treatment of problems characterized by the presence of more than one significant scale. In addition, the authors also discuss the relevance that many degrees of freedom, coarse graining procedure, and instability mechanisms, have in justifying a statistical description of macroscopic bodies. The book introduces the tools to characterize the non-asymptotic behaviors of chaotic systems. This text will be of interest to researchers and graduate students in statistical mechanics and chaos."--BOOK JACKET

Chaos and Coarse Graining in Statistical Mathematics ( )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
While statistical mechanics describe the equilibrium state of systems with many degrees of freedom, and dynamical systems explain the irregular evolution of systems with few degrees of freedom, new tools are needed to study the evolution of systems with many degrees of freedom. This book presents the basic aspects of chaotic systems, with emphasis on systems composed by huge numbers of particles. Firstly, the basic concepts of chaotic dynamics are introduced, moving on to explore the role of ergodicity and chaos for the validity of statistical laws, and ending with problems characterized by the presence of more than one significant scale. Also discussed is the relevance of many degrees of freedom, coarse graining procedure, and instability mechanisms in justifying a statistical description of macroscopic bodies. Introducing the tools to characterize the non asymptotic behaviors of chaotic systems, this text will interest researchers and graduate students in statistical mechanics and chaos
Méthode de comparaison des topologies de graphes complexes applications aux réseaux sociaux by Lionel Tabourier( Book )
2 editions published in 2010 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Les graphes des réseaux d'interactions sociales révèlent des propriétés topologiques dont nous cherchons à comprendre l'origine. Dans ce but nous manquons de références qui permettraient de construire une échelle de comparaison de leurs caractéristiques géométriques. Cette thèse propose une méthode générique pour produire des graphes synthétiques dont les propriétés sont ajustables, dans l'ambition de réaliser un balisage de l'espace des graphes. La méthode proposée dérive de procédures markoviennes dont l'étape élémentaire consiste à échanger les extrêmités de liens du graphe. Selon les contraintes imposées, une telle procédure doit être adaptée; nous discutons alors des difficultés inhérentes à sa réalisation pratique et les moyens à notre disposition pour estimer sa validité. Puis nous rendons compte d'applications pratiques sur des réseaux technologiques, de collaborations, ou d'échanges commerciaux. Le principe mis en oeuvre dans ces illustrations consiste à construire une suite d'ensembles de graphes obéissant à des contraintes de plus en plus exigeantes; puis à comparer les propriétés de chacun aux données réelles afin de déterminer quels éléments topologiques ont un rôle essentiel. Au fil des exemples, nous proposons des améliorations techniques de nos algorithmes qui permettraient d'en élargir les utilisations possibles. Cette méthode serait suffisamment générale pour pouvoir décrire des réseaux d'interactions d'une autre nature, mais aussi pour intégrer des informations supplémentaires à la description graphique telles que l'activité temporelle des agents; nous proposons pour conclure quelques éléments de réflexion pour réaliser ces objectifs
