An Introduction to Chaos in Nonequilibrium Statistical Mechanics

This e-book is an advent to the purposes in nonequilibrium statistical mechanics of chaotic dynamics, and in addition to using suggestions in statistical mechanics very important for an realizing of the chaotic behaviour of fluid platforms. the elemental options of dynamical structures conception are reviewed and straightforward 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 heritage of set idea that's panoramic, balanced, and interesting. not just does this publication synthesize a lot earlier paintings and supply clean insights and issues of view, however it additionally contains a significant innovation, a full-fledged therapy of the emergence of the set-theoretic procedure 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 clinical procedure. having the ability to rework a conception into an set of rules calls for major theoretical perception, precise actual and mathematical figuring out, and a operating point of competency in programming. This upper-division textual content offers an surprisingly wide survey of the themes of recent computational physics from a multidisciplinary, computational technology perspective.

1 Closed geodesics The study on closed geodesics on spheres is a classical and important problem in both dynamical systems and differential geometry. The results of V. Bangert in 1993 and J. Franks in 1992 prove that for every Riemannian metric on S 2 there exist infinitely many geometrically distinct closed geodesics. In contrast, in 1973, A. Katok ([24]) constructed a 34 Global aspects of Finsler geometry remarkable irreversible Finsler metric on S 2 which possesses precisely two distinct prime closed geodesics.

7 Let (M, F ) be a connected Berwald surface with smoth and strongly convex F on T M \ 0. Then • if the Gauss curvature K vanishes identically, then F is locally Minkowskian, • if the Gauss curvature K is not identically zero, then F is Riemannian. The proof is based on the following fact: If (M, F ) is a Landsberg surface with smooth F on T M \ 0, then the value of the Gauss curvature K at any point of the indicatric Sx M Tadashi Aikou and L´aszl´o Kozma 33 is determined by the Cartan scalar I accoding to the following formula: K(t) = K(0)e t 0 I(τ ) dτ .
