Spezielle Relativitätstheorie (Springer-Lehrbuch by Nicholas Woodhouse,Jürgen Kremer

By Nicholas Woodhouse,Jürgen Kremer

Dieser Klassiker von Nicholas Woodhouse präsentiert die Spezielle Relativitätstheorie auf eine paintings, die auf solider mathematischer Erfahrung aufbaut, aber weder einen umfangreichen Hintergrund in klassischer mathematischer Physik voraussetzt, noch einen langen Vorspann, der der Entwicklung neuer Werkzeuge, wie etwa der Tensor research, gewidmet ist.

Um die Relativitätstheorie verstehen zu können, muss ein klares geistiges Bild der Raumzeit entwickelt werden und nicht einfach eine Gewandtheit im Implementieren der Lorentz-Transformationen. Ein Leitmotiv des Buches besteht darin zu demonstrieren, dass Mathematik unseren Geist befreit, so dass wir die Welt, in der wir leben, über die Grenzen unserer physikalischen instinct hinaus erkunden können.

Die deutsche Übersetzung von Jürgen Kremer bewahrt den souveränen Stil des Autors.

The Guide to PAMIR:Theory and Use of Parameterized Adaptive by Stephen L Adler

By Stephen L Adler

PAMIR (Parameterized Adaptive Multidimensional Integration workouts) is a collection of Fortran courses for multidimensional numerical integration over hypercubes, simplexes, and hyper-rectangles in most cases measurement p, meant to be used via physicists, utilized mathematicians, laptop scientists, and engineers. The courses, that are on hand on the net at www.pamir-integrate.com and are loose for non-profit learn use, are able to following localized peaks and valleys of the integrand. every one software comes with a Message-Passing Interface (MPI) parallel model for cluster use in addition to serial versions.

Bayesian Nonparametrics (Cambridge Series in Statistical and by Nils Lid Hjort,Chris Holmes,Peter Müller,Stephen G. Walker

By Nils Lid Hjort,Chris Holmes,Peter Müller,Stephen G. Walker

Bayesian nonparametrics works - theoretically, computationally. the idea presents hugely versatile versions whose complexity grows thoroughly with the quantity of knowledge. Computational matters, notwithstanding difficult, aren't any longer intractable. All that's wanted is an access aspect: this clever booklet is the correct advisor to what can appear a forbidding panorama. educational chapters by means of Ghosal, Lijoi and Prünster, Teh and Jordan, and Dunson enhance from thought, to uncomplicated versions and hierarchical modeling, to functions and implementation, rather in computing device technology and biostatistics. those are complemented via spouse chapters through the editors and Griffin and Quintana, delivering extra versions, reading computational concerns, selecting destiny progress parts, and giving hyperlinks to similar subject matters. This coherent textual content offers prepared entry either to underlying ideas and to state of the art perform. particular examples are drawn from info retrieval, NLP, desktop imaginative and prescient, computational biology, biostatistics, and bioinformatics.

CRC Standard Mathematical Tables and Formulae, 32nd Edition by Daniel Zwillinger

By Daniel Zwillinger

With over 6,000 entries, CRC ordinary Mathematical Tables and Formulae, thirty second Edition maintains to supply crucial formulation, tables, figures, and outlines, together with many diagrams, team tables, and integrals no longer on hand on-line. This re-creation comprises vital subject matters which are surprising to a couple readers, similar to visible proofs and sequences, and illustrates how mathematical details is interpreted. fabric is gifted in a multisectional structure, with each one part containing a invaluable selection of primary tabular and expository reference material.

New to the thirty second Edition

  • A new bankruptcy on Mathematical Formulae from the Sciences that includes crucial formulae from numerous fields, together with acoustics, astrophysics, epidemiology, finance, statistical mechanics, and thermodynamics
  • New fabric on contingency tables, estimators, method potential, runs attempt, and pattern sizes
  • New fabric on mobile automata, knot concept, song, quaternions, and rational trigonometry
  • Updated and extra streamlined tables

Retaining the profitable layout of past variations, this finished instruction manual is still a useful reference for execs and scholars in mathematical and clinical fields.

Die Theorie, die nicht sterben wollte: Wie der englische by Sharon Bertsch McGrayne,Carl Freytag

By Sharon Bertsch McGrayne,Carl Freytag

Suchmaschinen und Qualitätsmanagement, Versicherungen und Erdbebenvorhersagen, Verkehrsflüsse, Geheimcodes und medizinische Prognosen – die sogenannte Bayes’sche Regel ist geradezu allgegenwärtig und dennoch nur wenigen vertraut. Dabei ist sie in ihrer grundlegenden Aussage bestechend einfach: guy beginnt mit einer Vermutung und revidiert diese anhand neuer, objektiver Informationen – und gelangt so zu einer verbesserten Annahme. Für seine Anhänger ist das Bayes-Theorem eine elegante Formulierung dafür, dass guy aus Erfahrung klug wird, und ein mathematisches tool, das einer klaren Linie folgt. Für seine Gegner ist es ein Amoklauf der Subjektivität.

Sharon Bertsch McGrayne schildert in ihrem spannenden Sachbuch die erstaunliche Geschichte dieser Regel und berichtet von der Besessenheit ihrer Anhänger und Gegner. Sie beschreibt die Entdeckung des Theorems durch den britischen Geistlichen und Amateurmathematiker Thomas Bayes in den 1740er-Jahren und seine Weiterentwicklung in eine moderne shape, die quick der heutigen entspricht, durch den französischen Wissenschaftler Pierre Simon Laplace. Sie deckt auf, warum angesehene Statistiker das Theorem one hundred fifty Jahre lang mit einem Tabu belegten, während in der gleichen Zeit Praktiker darauf zurückgriffen, um Probleme zu lösen, die mit großen Unsicherheiten und einem Mangel an Informationen einhergingen. Eine wichtige Rolle spielte dabei Alan Turing, als er im Zweiten Weltkrieg den deutschen Enigma-Code knackte. Die Autorin erklärt schließlich, wie mit dem Aufkommen der immer preiswerter und für alle verfügbaren Computertechnologie in den 1980er-Jahren ein ganz neues Zeitalter für das Bayes-Theorem anbrach. Heute spielt es in Wissenschaft, Technik und Gesellschaft quickly überall eine Rolle – ob es nun um die Entschlüsselung der DNA, das Börsengeschehen oder die Terrorabwehr geht.

Nonlinear Dynamics of the Lithosphere and Earthquake by Vladimir Keilis-Borok,Alexandre A. Soloviev

By Vladimir Keilis-Borok,Alexandre A. Soloviev

The vulnerability of our civilization to earthquakes is swiftly growing to be, rais­ ing earthquakes to the ranks of significant threats confronted through humankind. Earth­ quake prediction is important to minimize that risk via project catastrophe­ preparedness measures. this is often one of many significantly pressing difficulties whose resolution calls for basic learn. whilst, prediction is a ma­ jor software of easy technological know-how, a resource of heuristic constraints and the ultimate try of theories. This quantity summarizes the state of the art in earthquake prediction. Its following points are thought of: - present prediction algorithms and the standard of predictions they seasoned­ vide. - program of such predictions for harm relief, given their present accuracy, thus far restricted. - basic figuring out of the lithosphere received in earthquake prediction study. - rising chances for significant advancements of earthquake prediction tools. - strength implications for predicting different failures, along with earthquakes. Methodologies. on the middle of the learn defined this is the inte­ gration of 3 methodologies: phenomenological research of observations; "universal" versions of complicated platforms reminiscent of these thought of in statistical physics and nonlinear dynamics; and Earth-specific types of tectonic fault networks. additionally, the speculation of optimum keep watch over is used to hyperlink earthquake prediction with earthquake preparedness.
