By Sadri Hassani

The aim of this ebook is to reveal the reader to the critical function that arithmetic performs in glossy physics. beginning with the concept of vector areas, the 1st 1/2 the e-book develops themes as diversified as algebras, classical orthogonal polynomials, Fourier research, advanced research, differential and fundamental equations, operator conception, and multi-dimensional Green's services. the second one half the booklet introduces teams, manifolds, Lie teams and their representations, Clifford algebras and their representations, and fibre bundles and their purposes to differential geometry and gauge theories.

This moment version is a considerable revision with an entire rewriting of many chapters and the addition of latest ones, together with chapters on algebras, illustration of Clifford algebras, fibre bundles, and gauge theories. The spirit of the 1st version, specifically the stability among rigour and actual software, has been maintained, as is the abundance of old notes and labored out examples that exhibit the "unreasonable effectiveness of arithmetic" in glossy physics.

Supergravity, including string conception, is among the most important advancements in theoretical physics. Written through of the main revered employees within the box, this is often the first-ever authoritative and systematic account of supergravity. The booklet begins via reviewing elements of relativistic box thought in Minkowski spacetime.

Localization in Periodic Potentials: From Schrödinger Operators to the Gross–Pitaevskii Equation (London Mathematical Society Lecture Note Series)

This ebook offers a complete therapy of the Gross–Pitaevskii equation with a periodic capability; specifically, the localized modes supported by way of the periodic strength. It takes the mean-field version of the Bose–Einstein condensation because the start line of research and addresses the life and balance of localized modes.

Gravitation und Relativität: Eine Einführung in die Allgemeine Relativitätstheorie (De Gruyter Studium) (German Edition)

Die Relativitätstheorie gehört zu den bekanntesten Theorien der Physik. Auch wenn ihre unmittelbaren Auswirkungen auf unser tägliches Leben praktisch vernachlässigbar sind, geht von ihr dennoch eine große Faszination aus. Das vorliegende Buch bahnt physikalisch interessierten Lesern mit grundlegenden Kenntnissen der höheren Mathematik einen anschaulichen und nachvollziehbaren Weg zum Verständnis der Relativitätstheorie.

Strain Gradient Plasticity-Based Modeling of Damage and Fracture (Springer Theses)

This publication presents a finished advent to numerical modeling of dimension results in steel plasticity. the most periods of pressure gradient plasticity formulations are defined and successfully applied within the context of the finite point technique. a strong numerical framework is gifted and hired to enquire the function of pressure gradients on structural integrity evaluation.
