This e-book presents an creation to (1) numerous zeta services (for instance, Riemann, Hurwitz, Barnes, Epstein, Selberg, and Ruelle), together with graph zeta features; (2) modular kinds (Eisenstein sequence, Hecke and Dirichlet L-functions, Ramanujan's tau functionality, and cusp forms); and (3) vertex operator algebras (correlation capabilities, quasimodular kinds, modular invariance, rationality, and a few present learn subject matters together with greater genus conformal box theory). numerous concrete purposes of the fabric to physics are offered. those contain Kaluza-Klein additional dimensional gravity, Bosonic string calculations, an summary Cardy formulation for black gap entropy, Patterson-Selberg zeta functionality expression of one-loop quantum box and gravity partition services, Casimir power calculations, atomic Schrödinger operators, Bose-Einstein condensation, warmth kernel asymptotics, random matrices, quantum chaos, elliptic and theta functionality ideas of Einstein's equations, a soliton-black gap connection in two-dimensional gravity, and conformal box thought.

THE vintage textual content for utilized arithmetic. this is often actually a piece of paintings - with its transparent factors and its extraordinary stereoscopic illustrations. certain, it can be a bit dated; and convinced, it truly is certainly now not a simple learn; yet its readability of content material and its sheer mathematical splendor make it greater than priceless for any severe scholar of physics or engineering.

Download e-book for iPad: Geometrical Theory of Dynamical Systems and Fluid Flows by Kambe Tsutomu

This can be an introductory textbook at the geometrical idea of dynamical structures, fluid flows, and sure integrable structures. the topics are interdisciplinary and expand from arithmetic, mechanics and physics to mechanical engineering, and the process is particularly primary. The underlying recommendations are in line with differential geometry and thought of Lie teams within the mathematical element, and on transformation symmetries and gauge idea within the actual element.

The ebook is devoted to the development of specific ideas of platforms of normal differential equations within the kind of sequence which are analogous to these utilized in Lyapunov’s first process. A admired position is given to asymptotic recommendations that have a tendency to an equilibrium place, specifically within the strongly nonlinear case, the place the lifestyles of such strategies can’t be inferred at the foundation of the 1st approximation on my own.
