The scientific legacy of Poincaré( Book )

9 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 249 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
Kolmogorov's heritage in mathematics by Éric Charpentier( Book )

19 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in English and French and held by 219 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 Kolmogorov. Each chapter treats one of Kolmogorov's research themes, or a subject that was invented as a consequence of his discoveries. His contributions are presented, his methods, the perspectives he opened to us, the way in which this research has evolved up to now, along with examples of recent applications and a presentation of the current prospects. This book can be read by anyone with a master's (even a bachelor's) degree in mathematics, computer science or physics, or more generally by anyone who likes mathematical ideas. Rather than present detailed proofs, the main ideas are described. A bibliography is provided for those who wish to understand the technical details. One can see that sometimes very simple reasoning (with the right interpretation and tools) can lead in a few lines to very substantial results. The Kolmogorov Legacy in Physics was published by Springer in 2004 (ISBN 978-3-540-20307-0)." -- Font no determinada
Renormalization methods : critical phenomena, chaos, fractal structures by Annick Lesne( Book )

8 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Invariances d'échelle : des changements d'états à la turbulence by Michel Laguës( Book )

3 editions published between 2003 and 2008 in French and held by 120 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]
Morphogenèse : L'origine des formes by Paul Bourgine( Book )

12 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in English and French and held by 111 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{u2019}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

Chaos and coarse graining in statistical mechanics by Patrizia Castiglione( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and French and held by 69 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
