The Physics of Chaos in Hamiltonian Systems

Author: George M Zaslavsky
Publisher: World Scientific
ISBN: 9781908979230
Release Date: 2007-05-21
Genre: Science

This book aims to familiarize the reader with the essential properties of the chaotic dynamics of Hamiltonian systems by avoiding specialized mathematical tools, thus making it easily accessible to a broader audience of researchers and students. Unique material on the most intriguing and fascinating topics of unsolved and current problems in contemporary chaos theory is presented. The coverage includes: separatrix chaos; properties and a description of systems with non-ergodic dynamics; the distribution of Poincaré recurrences and their role in transport theory; dynamical models of the Maxwell's Demon, the occurrence of persistent fluctuations, and a detailed discussion of their role in the problem underlying the foundation of statistical physics; the emergence of stochastic webs in phase space and their link to space tiling with periodic (crystal type) and aperiodic (quasi-crystal type) symmetries. This second edition expands on pseudochaotic dynamics with weak mixing and the new phenomenon of fractional kinetics, which is crucial to the transport properties of chaotic motion. The book is ideally suited to all those who are actively working on the problems of dynamical chaos as well as to those looking for new inspiration in this area. It introduces the physicist to the world of Hamiltonian chaos and the mathematician to actual physical problems.The material can also be used by graduate students. Contents:Discrete and Continuous ModelsSeparatrix ChaosThe Phase Space of ChaosNonlinearity Versus PerturbationFractals and ChaosPoincaré Recurrences and Fractal TimeChaos and Foundation of Statistical PhysicsChaos and SymmetryMore Degrees of FreedomNormal and Anomalous KineticsFractional KineticsWeak Chaos and Pseudochaos Readership: Graduate students and researchers in physics, mathematics, engineering, chemistry and biophysics. Keywords:Billiards;Separatrix Chaos;Fractal Properties;Stochastic Webs;Kinetics;Chaotic DynamicsKey Features:New sections on the islands in stochastic sea, billiards, persistent fluctuations, and log-periodicityIncludes a new chapter on weak chaos and pseudochaosUseful for graduate and undergraduate courses on the theory of chaosReviews:Reviews of the First Edition:“George Zaslavsky develops ‘fractional kinetics’ in an attempt to give a smoothed, but nondiffusive, description. This phenomenological description captures some aspects of the stickiness of islands, but I believe its mathematical justification remains elusive. Perhaps that is an excellent reason to read this book.”Nature “The book is useful for scientists who are actively working on the problems of dynamical chaos … The material can also be used as a textbook for a graduate course on new and emerging directions in Hamiltonian chaos theory.”Zentralblatt MATH

A Career in Theoretical Physics

Author: Philip W Anderson
Publisher: World Scientific
ISBN: 9789814482523
Release Date: 2005-01-26
Genre: Science

This unique volume presents the scientific achievements of Nobel laureate Philip Anderson, spanning the many years of his career. In this new edition, the author has omitted some review papers as well as added over 15 of his research papers. As in the first edition, he provides an introduction to each paper by explaining the genesis of the papers or adding some personal history. The book provides a comprehensive overview of the author's work which include significant discoveries and pioneering contributions, such as his work on the Anderson model of magnetic impurities and the concept of localization; the study of spin glasses, the fluctuating valence problem and superexchange; his prediction of the existence of superfluidity in He3; his involvement in the discovery of the Josephson effect; his discovery of the “Higgs” mechanism in elementary particle physics; and so on. The new papers added to this edition include ”Pressure Broadening in the Microwave and Infrared Regions” — a condensation of most of the author's thesis; ”Ordering and Antiferromagnetism in Ferrites” — the best-known of the papers written by the author involving what are known as “frustrated” lattices; and ”Localized Magnetic States in Metals” — a paper mentioned in his Nobel Prize citation along with localization and superexchange; to name a few. A Career in Theoretical Physics is an essential source of reference for physicists, chemists, materials scientists and historians of science. It is also suitable reading for graduate students.

Eine kurze Geschichte der Menschheit

Author: Yuval Noah Harari
Publisher: DVA
ISBN: 9783641104986
Release Date: 2013-09-02
Genre: History

Krone der Schöpfung? Vor 100 000 Jahren war der Homo sapiens noch ein unbedeutendes Tier, das unauffällig in einem abgelegenen Winkel des afrikanischen Kontinents lebte. Unsere Vorfahren teilten sich den Planeten mit mindestens fünf weiteren menschlichen Spezies, und die Rolle, die sie im Ökosystem spielten, war nicht größer als die von Gorillas, Libellen oder Quallen. Vor 70 000 Jahren dann vollzog sich ein mysteriöser und rascher Wandel mit dem Homo sapiens, und es war vor allem die Beschaffenheit seines Gehirns, die ihn zum Herren des Planeten und zum Schrecken des Ökosystems werden ließ. Bis heute hat sich diese Vorherrschaft stetig zugespitzt: Der Mensch hat die Fähigkeit zu schöpferischem und zu zerstörerischem Handeln wie kein anderes Lebewesen. Anschaulich, unterhaltsam und stellenweise hochkomisch zeichnet Yuval Harari die Geschichte des Menschen nach und zeigt alle großen, aber auch alle ambivalenten Momente unserer Menschwerdung.
