The scientific legacy of Poincaré by Éric Charpentier( Book )

11 editions published in 2010 in English and French and held by 256 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 )

15 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 147 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."--Publisher's website
Invariances d'échelle : des changements d'états à la turbulence by Michel Laguës( Book )

5 editions published between 2003 and 2008 in French and held by 122 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]

Scale invariance : from phase transitions to turbulence by Annick Lesne( Book )

13 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 81 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

L'héritage de Kolmogorov en mathématiques by Éric Charpentier( Book )

6 editions published in 2004 in French and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A.N. Kolmogorov, dont on célèbre le centenaire de la naissance, fut peut-être le plus grand mathématicien du XXe siècle. Il a eu des contributions importantes en probabilité, en théorie du chaos ou en complexité algorithmique. Propose un tour d'horizon de son oeuvre mathématique

Morphogenesis : origins of patterns and shapes by Paul Bourgine( Book )

10 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 36 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 wo

From Newton to Mandelbrot : a primer in theoretical physics by Dietrich Stauffer( Book )

6 editions published in 2017 in English and German and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This textbook takes the reader on a tour of the most important landmarks of theoretical physics: classical, quantum, and statistical mechanics, relativity, electrodynamics, as well as the most modern and exciting of all: elementary particles and the physics of fractals. The second edition has been supplemented with a new chapter devoted to concise though complete presentation of dynamical systems, bifurcations and chaos theory. The treatment is confined to the essentials of each area, presenting all the central concepts and equations at an accessible level. Chapters 1 to 4 contain the standard material of courses in theoretical physics and are supposed to accompany lectures at the university; thus they are rather condensed. They are supposed to fill one year of teaching. Chapters 5 and 6, in contrast, are written less condensed since this material may not be part of standard lectures and thus could be studied without the help of a university teacher. An appendix on elementary particles lies somewhere in between: It could be a summary of a much more detailed course, or studied without such a course. Illustrations and numerous problems round off this unusual textbook. It will ideally accompany the students all along their course in theoretical physics and prove indispensable in preparing and revising the exams. It is also suited as a reference for teachers or scientists from other disciplines who are interested in the topic

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

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