#### Trick or Truth?

Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 70.72The prize-winning essays in this book address the fascinating but sometimes uncomfortable relationship between physics and mathematics. Is mathematics merely another natural science? Or is it the result of human creativity? Does physics simply wear mathematics like a costume, or is math the lifeblood of physical reality? The nineteen wide-ranging,... more...

#### It From Bit or Bit From It?

Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 70.72The essays in this book look at the question of whether physics can be based on information, or – as John Wheeler phrased it – whether we can get “It from Bit”. They are based on the prize-winning essays submitted to the FQXi essay competition of the same name, which drew over 180 entries. The eighteen contributions address topics as diverse as quantum... more...

#### Coherent Dynamics of Complex Quantum Systems

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2005; US$ 90.05A large number of modern problems in physics, chemistry, and quantum electronics require a consideration of population dynamics in complex multilevel quantum systems. The purpose of this book is to provide a systematic treatment of these questions and to present a number of exactly solvable problems. It considers the different dynamical problems frequently... more...

#### Teleparallel Gravity

Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 106.08This is the first book devoted to teleparallel Gravity (TG), an alternative theory for gravitation, which is equivalent to General Relativity (GR). Shows how TG attributes gravitation to torsion, which accounts for gravitation by acting as a force. more...

#### Permutation Complexity in Dynamical Systems

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2010; US$ 102.55The study of permutation complexity can be envisioned as a new kind of symbolic dynamics. This book is primarily addressed to researchers working in nonlinear dynamics and complex systems. It is also for graduate students interested in these subjects. more...

#### SIMOX

The Institution of Engineering and Technology 2004; US$ 137.00SIMOX represents the first effort to compile a broad spectrum of knowledge from various groups of researchers and technologists in the world. It provides the reader with a basic understanding of SIMOX technology and in addition gives a good starting point for further investigation and applications. more...

#### Applications + Practical Conceptualization + Mathematics = fruitful Innovation

Springer Japan 2015; US$ 141.45This book is a collection of papers presented at the conference “Forum Math-for-Industry 2014” for which the unifying theme was “Applications + Practical Conceptualization + Mathematics = fruitful Innovation” in October 2014. This epigram encapsulates the dynamics of the process that takes an application through to an innovation. Industrial mathematics... more...

#### Nonlinear Mathematical Physics and Natural Hazards

Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 141.45This book is devoted to current advances in the field of nonlinear mathematical physics and modeling of critical phenomena that can lead to catastrophic events. Pursuing a multidisciplinary approach, it gathers the work of scientists who are developing mathematical and computational methods for the study and analysis of nonlinear phenomena and who... more...

#### Esercizi di metodi matematici della fisica

Springer Milan 2011; US$ 19.80Il testo richiama i principali concetti, definizioni e teoremi relativi agli spazi vettoriali, agli sviluppi in serie di Fourier, alle equazioni alle derivate parziali, alle trasformate integrali di Laplace e di Fourier, ad alcune classi di equazioni integrali (con specifico riferimento alla funzione di Green). Si danno altresi' cenni di funzioni di... more...

#### Zeta Functions, Topology and Quantum Physics

Springer US 2008; US$ 188.60This volume contains papers by invited speakers of the symposium "Zeta Functions, Topology and Quantum Physics" held at Kinki U- versity in Osaka, Japan, during the period of March 3-6, 2003. The aims of this symposium were to establish mutual understanding and to exchange ideas among researchers working in various fields which have relation to zeta... more...
