Its logical approach helps us understand why algebraic geometry is so fundamental throughout mathematics and why the extension to noncommutative geometry, which has been forced by recent developments in
  2. 2. quantum physics, is both natural and necessary. Beginning with a crash course in model theory, this book will suit not only model theorists but also readers with a more classical geometric background Year : 2010 Call No. : QA573 Z69 20103 Title : Real and Complex Singularities Editors: M. Manoel, M.C. Romero Fuster, C.T.C Wall. "The biennial meetings at Säao Carlos have helped create a worldwide community of experts and young researchers working on singularity theory, with a special focus on applications to a wide variety of topics in both pure and applied mathematics. The tenth meeting, celebrating the 60th birthdays of Terence Gaffney and Maria Aparecida Soares Ruas, was a special occasion attracting the best known names in the area. This volume contains contributions by the attendees, including three articles written or co-authored by Gaffney himself, and survey articles on the existence of Milnor fibrations, global classifications and graphs, pairs of foliations on surfaces, and Gaffneys work on equisingularity" Year : 2010 Call No. : QA614.58 I61 20104 Title : Probability, geometry, and integrable systems : for henry McKeans seventy-fifth birthday Editor : Mark Pinsky, Björn Birnir. The three main themes of this book, probability theory, differential geometry, and the theory of integrable systems, reflect the broad range of mathematical interests of Henry McKean, to whom it is dedicated. Written by experts in probability, geometry, integrable systems, turbulence, and percolation, the seventeen papers included here demonstrate a wide variety of techniques that have been developed to solve various mathematical problems in these areas. The topics are often combined in an unusual and interesting fashion to give solutions outside of the standard methods. The papers contain some exciting results and offer a guide to the contemporary literature on these subjects Year : 2010 Call No. QA273 P962 2010
  3. 3. 5 Title : Probability on Graphs: Random Processes on Graphs and Lattices Authors: Geoffrey Grimmett. This introduction to some of the principal models in the theory of disordered systems leads the reader through the basics, to the very edge of contemporary research, with the minimum of technical fuss. Topics covered include random walk, percolation, self-avoiding walk, interacting particle systems, uniform spanning tree, random graphs, as well as the Ising, Potts, and random-cluster models for ferromagnetism, and the Lorentz model for motion in a random medium. Schramm-Löwner evolutions (SLE) arise in various contexts. The choice of topics is strongly motivated by modern applications and focuses on areas that merit further research. Special features include a simple account of Smirnovs proof of Cardys formula for critical percolation, and a fairly full account of the theory of influence and sharp-thresholds. Accessible to a wide audience of mathematicians and physicists, this book can be used as a graduate course text. Each chapter ends with a range of exercises. Year : 2010 Call No. : QA166 G864 20106 Title : Global methods for combinatorial isoperimetric problems Author: Harper, Lawrence H. Certain constrained combinatorial optimization problems have a natural analogue in the continuous setting of the classical isoperimetric problem. The study of so called combinatorial isoperimetric problems exploits similarities between these two, seemingly disparate, settings. This 2004 text focuses on global methods. This means that morphisms, typically arising from symmetry or direct product decomposition, are employed to transform new problems into more restricted and easily solvable settings whilst preserving essential structure. This book is based on Professor Harpers many years experience in teaching this subject and is ideal for graduate students entering the field. The author has increased the utility of the text for teaching by including worked examples, exercises and material about applications to computer science. Applied systematically, the global point of view can lead to surprising insights and results, and established researchers will find this to be a valuable reference work on an innovative method for problem solving. Year : 2010 Call No. : QA402.5 H293 2010
  4. 4. 7 Title : Number Theory in the Spirit of Liouville Authors: Kenneth S. Williams Joseph Liouville is recognised as one of the great mathematicians of the nineteenth century, and one of his greatest achievements was the introduction of a powerful new method into elementary number theory. This book provides a gentle introduction to this method, explaining it in a clear and straightforward manner. The many applications provided include applications to sums of squares, sums of triangular numbers, recurrence relations for divisor functions, convolution sums involving the divisor functions, and many others. All of the topics discussed have a rich history dating back to Euler, Jacobi, Dirichlet, Ramanujan and others, and they continue to be the subject of current mathematical research. Williams places the results in their historical and contemporary contexts, making the connection between Liouvilles ideas and modern theory. This is the only book in English entirely devoted to the subject and is thus an extremely valuable resource for both students and researchers alike. Year : 2011 Call No. : QA241 W7248 Title : Derivation and integration Author: Washek F. Pfeffer This 2001 book is devoted to an invariant multidimensional process of recovering a function from its derivative. It considers additive functions defined on the family of all bounded BV sets that are continuous with respect to a suitable topology. A typical example is the flux of a continuous vector field. A very general Gauss-Green theorem follows from the sufficient conditions for the derivability of the flux. Since the setting is invariant with respect to local lipeomorphisms, a standard argument extends the Gauss- Green theorem to the Stokes theorem on Lipschitz manifolds. In addition, the author proves the Stokes theorem for a class of top-dimensional normal currents - a first step towards solving a difficult open problem of derivation and integration in middle dimensions. The book contains complete and detailed proofs and will provide valuable information to research mathematicians and advanced graduate students interested in geometric integration and related areas. Year : 2001 Call No. : QA312 P524
  5. 5. 9 Title : Non-Hermitian quantum mechanics Authors: Nimrod Moiseyev. Non-Hermitian quantum mechanics (NHQM) is an important alternative to the standard (Hermitian) formalism of quantum mechanics, enabling the solution of otherwise difficult problems. The first book to present this theory, it is useful to advanced graduate students and researchers in physics, chemistry and engineering. NHQM provides powerful numerical and analytical tools for the study of resonance phenomena - perhaps one of the most striking events in nature. It is especially useful for problems whose solutions cause extreme difficulties within the structure of a conventional Hermitian framework. NHQM has applications in a variety of fields, including optics, where the refractive index is complex; quantum field theory, where the parity-time (PT) symmetry properties of the Hamiltonian are investigated; and atomic and molecular physics and electrical engineering, where complex potentials are introduced to simplify numerical calculations. Year : 2011 Call No. : QC174.17 .M35 M71410 Title : Multiphysics modeling using COMSOL : a first principles approach Author: Roger W. Pryor. Multiphysics Modeling Using COMSOL rapidly introduces the senior level undergraduate, graduate or professional scientist or engineer to the art and science of computerized modeling for physical systems and devices. It offers a step-by-step modeling methodology through examples that are linked to the Fundamental Laws of Physics through a First Principles Analysis approach. The text explores a breadth of multiphysics models in coordinate systems that range from 1D to 3D and introduces the readers to the numerical analysis modeling techniques employed in the COMSOL® Multiphysics® software. After readers have built and run the examples, they will have a much firmer understanding of the concepts, skills, and benefits acquired from the use of computerized modeling techniques to solve their current technological problems and to explore new areas of application for their particular technological areas of interest.

  6. 6. Call No. : QC52 P97311 Title : Quantum computation and quantum information Authors: Michael A. Nielsen & Isaac L. Chuang This text is the first comprehensive introduction to the main ideas and techniques of the field of quantum computation and quantum information. Michael Nielsen and Isaac Chuang ask the question: what are the ultimate physical limits to computation and communication? They describe in detail such remarkable effects as fast quantum algorithms, quantum teleportation, quantum cryptography and quantum error-correction. A wealth of accompanying figures and exercises illustrate and develop the material in more depth. The authors describe what a quantum computer is, how it can be used to solve problems faster than familiar classical computers, and the real- world implementation of quantum computers. The book concludes with an in- depth treatment of quantum information, explaining how quantum states can be used to perform remarkable feats of communication, together with a discussion of how it is possible to protect quantum states against the effects of noise.
