By J. R. Dorfman

This e-book is an creation to the purposes in nonequilibrium statistical mechanics of chaotic dynamics, and in addition to using ideas in statistical mechanics very important for an realizing of the chaotic behaviour of fluid structures. the basic suggestions of dynamical platforms thought are reviewed and easy examples are given. complicated issues together with SRB and Gibbs measures, risky periodic orbit expansions, and purposes to billiard-ball platforms, are then defined. The textual content emphasises the connections among shipping coefficients, had to describe macroscopic houses of fluid flows, and amounts, corresponding to Lyapunov exponents and Kolmogorov-Sinai entropies, which describe the microscopic, chaotic behaviour of the fluid. Later chapters examine the jobs of the increasing and contracting manifolds of hyperbolic dynamical platforms and the massive variety of debris in macroscopic structures. workouts, precise references and recommendations for additional studying are incorporated.

**Labyrinth of Thought: A History of Set Theory and Its Role in Modern Mathematics**

"José Ferreirós has written a magisterial account of the historical past of set thought that's panoramic, balanced, and fascinating. not just does this e-book synthesize a lot earlier paintings and supply clean insights and issues of view, however it additionally encompasses a significant innovation, a full-fledged therapy of the emergence of the set-theoretic technique in arithmetic from the early 19th century.

**Computational Physics: Problem Solving with Python**

Using computation and simulation has turn into an important a part of the medical procedure. having the ability to remodel a conception into an set of rules calls for major theoretical perception, distinctive actual and mathematical realizing, and a operating point of competency in programming. This upper-division textual content presents an strangely vast survey of the subjects of recent computational physics from a multidisciplinary, computational technological know-how perspective.
