The scientific legacy of Poincaré by Éric Charpentier( Book )

11 editions published in 2010 in English and French and held by 257 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 )

10 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 192 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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. 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
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]

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

Invariances d'échelle Des changements d'états à la turbulence by Annick Lesne( )

2 editions published in 2008 in French and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La 4ème de couv. indique : "L'introduction des concepts d'invariance d'échelle et d'universalité a marqué un tournant de la physique moderne et des sciences de la nature en général. Depuis lors, la nouvelle " physique des lois d'échelle " (ou scaling) a permis des descriptions quantitatives communes à des phénomènes aussi divers que les transitions de phases, les tremblements de terre, la conformation des polymères, le rythme cardiaque, la diffusion et la croissance d'interfaces, les séquences d'ADN ou la turbulence. Ecrit à quatre mains par un théoricien et un expérimentateur, cet ouvrage vise à présenter le sujet de façon simple et complète, tout en donnant de solides bases théoriques à l'étudiant comme au chercheur. Il offre un vaste panorama sur l'ensemble des résultats formels et expérimentaux associés à la notion de scaling, en physique, mais aussi en chimie et biologie. Cette nouvelle édition augmentée intègre les développements les plus récents du domaine."

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
