#### The Landscape of Free Fermionic Gauge Models

Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 129.00In this thesis, the author describes the development of a software framework to systematically construct a particular class of weakly coupled free fermionic heterotic string models, dubbed gauge models. In their purest form, these models are maximally supersymmetric (N = 4), and thus only contain superpartners in their matter sector. This feature makes... more...

#### A Mathematician's Journeys

Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 129.00This book explores facets of Otto Neugebauer's career, his impact on the history and practice of mathematics, and the ways in which his legacy has been preserved or transformed in recent decades, looking ahead to the directions in which the study of the history of science will head in the twenty-first century. Neugebauer, more than any other scholar... more...

#### Ideengeschichte der Physik

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2016; US$ 59.99Die Ideengeschichte der Physik geht neue Wege, indem sie den umfangreichen historischen Stoff nicht additiv darstellt, sondern wissenschaftstheoretisch reflektiert und nach thematischen Leitlinien (Materievorstellungen, Raum und Zeit, Erhaltungskonzepte, Extremalprinzipien, Theorie und Experiment) strukturiert. Damit vermittelt diese Darstellung im... more...

#### Control of Self-Organizing Nonlinear Systems

Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 129.00The book summarizes the state-of-the-art of research on control of self-organizing nonlinear systems with contributions from leading international experts in the field. The first focus concerns recent methodological developments including control of networks and of noisy and time-delayed systems. As a second focus, the book features emerging concepts... more...

#### Elements of Probability and Statistics

Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 69.99This bookprovides an introduction to elementary probability and to Bayesianstatistics using de Finetti's subjectivist approach. One of the featuresof this approach is that it does not require the introductionof sample space ? a non-intrinsic concept that makes the treatment ofelementary probability unnecessarily complicate... more...

#### Making Sense of Quantum Mechanics

Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 69.99This book explains, in simple terms, with a minimum of mathematics, why things can appear to be in two places at the same time, why correlations between simultaneous events occurring far apart cannot be explained by local mechanisms, and why, nevertheless, the quantum theory can be understood in terms of matter... more...

#### Born-Jordan Quantization

Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 109.00This book presents a comprehensive mathematical study ofthe operators behind the Born?Jordan quantization scheme. The Schrödinger andHeisenberg pictures of quantum mechanics are equivalent only if the Born?Jordanscheme is used. Thus, Born?Jordan quantization provides the only physicallyconsistent quantization scheme, as opposed to the Weyl quantization... more...

#### Differential Equations with Involutions

Atlantis Press 2016; US$ 54.99This monograph covers the existing results regarding Green?s functions for differential equations with involutions (DEI).The first part of the book is devoted to the study of the most useful aspects of involutions from an analytical point of view and the associated algebras of differential operators.The work combines the state of the art regarding... more...

#### The Quantum Handshake

Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 69.99This book shines bright light into the dim recesses of quantum theory, where the mysteries of entanglement, nonlocality, and wave collapse have motivated some to conjure up multiple universes, and others to adopt a "shut up and calculate" mentality. After an extensive and accessible introduction to quantum mechanics and its history, the author turns... more...

#### Philosophy of Science for Scientists

Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 69.99This textbook offers an introduction to the philosophy of science. It helps undergraduate students from the natural, the human and social sciences to gain an understanding of what science is, how it has developed, what its core traits are, how to distinguish between science and pseudo-science and to discover what a scientific attitude is. It argues... more...
