Data reduction and error analysis for physical sciences by Philip Bevington, D. Keith Robinson

By Philip Bevington, D. Keith Robinson

The aim of this ebook is to supply an advent to the suggestions of statistical research of knowledge for college students on the undergraduate and graduate point, and to supply instruments for info aid and blunder research in most cases required within the actual sciences. The presentation is built from a realistic viewpoint, together with sufficient derivation to justify the consequences, yet emphasizing equipment of dealing with info greater than thought. The textual content offers a number of numerical and graphical ideas. computing device courses that help those concepts can be to be had on an accompanying site in either Fortran and C++.

An Introduction to Chaos in Nonequilibrium Statistical Mechanics

This e-book is an creation to the functions in nonequilibrium statistical mechanics of chaotic dynamics, and likewise to using options in statistical mechanics very important for an knowing of the chaotic behaviour of fluid platforms. the basic ideas of dynamical platforms thought are reviewed and easy examples are given.

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

"José Ferreirós has written a magisterial account of the background of set thought that is panoramic, balanced, and interesting. not just does this ebook synthesize a lot prior paintings and supply clean insights and issues of view, however it additionally encompasses a significant innovation, a full-fledged remedy 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 develop into an important a part of the medical strategy. having the ability to remodel a thought into an set of rules calls for major theoretical perception, exact actual and mathematical figuring out, and a operating point of competency in programming. This upper-division textual content presents an surprisingly huge survey of the subjects of contemporary computational physics from a multidisciplinary, computational technology viewpoint.
