Markov-Modulated Processes & Semiregenerative Phenomena by Antonio Pacheco, Loon Ching Tang, Narahari U Prabhu

By Antonio Pacheco, Loon Ching Tang, Narahari U Prabhu

The booklet contains a set of released papers which shape a coherent remedy of Markov random walks and Markov additive approaches including their functions. half I offers the rules of those stochastic procedures underpinned through a superb theoretical framework in line with Semiregenerative phenomena. half II offers a few purposes to queueing and garage structures.

Wie aus der Zahl ein Zebra wird. Ein mathematisches by Georg Glaeser

By Georg Glaeser

Was once haben ein Zebra, eine Hartkoralle und ein Tigerhai gemeinsam, und was once trocknender Schlamm, Libellenflügel und Blattstrukturen? Kann guy aufgrund von Fotografien nachweisen, dass unser Mond eine Kugel ist? Wie kommt es zu den seltsamen Verzerrungen der "Sonnenscheibe" beim Auf- und Untergang? was once ist ein Schneckenkönig und gibt es auch einen Röhrenwurmkönig? Welche Kurven sind die einzigen, welche die fotografische Abbildung ohne Wesensänderung verkraften? Sehen Fische so wie wir durch ein Fischaugenobjektiv? Welche geometrischen Eigenschaften eines Objekts haben "physikalische Konsequenzen"? Warum irisieren Seifenblasen? Woher kommen die tänzelnden Regenbogenmuster, die guy beim abendlichen Schnorcheln im Flachwasser zu sehen bekommt? Ab welcher Höhe und wie stark sieht guy die Erdkrümmung? Welche geometrischen Muster stellen sich bei Interferenz von Wellen ein? used to be ist so faszinierend, wenn elliptische Räder aufeinander rollen? Mathematiker mit einem grasp zur Biologie, Physik, Geografie, Astronomie, Architektur, layout usw. und einer stets bereiten Fotokamera in der Hand sehen die Welt ein bisschen anders und stellen dann recht unorthodoxe Fragen: In diesem Buch gibt es one hundred forty four Doppelseiten mit mindestens ebenso vielen Fragestellungen dieser artwork. Das Prinzip, ein challenge anzugehen, ist oft ähnlich: Zunächst gibt es ein in irgendeiner Hinsicht bemerkenswertes Foto. Darum rankt sich ein kurzer Erklärungstext, der neugierig macht und Lösungen anbietet, dann Literaturangaben (insbesondere einschlägige Internet-Links), die guy zwecks Vertiefung zu expense ziehen kann. speedy immer ist auch eine dazu passende Computersimulation zu sehen, um das Gesagte noch anschaulicher zu machen oder zu erhärten.

Mathematics of Harmony (Series on Knots and Everything) by Alexey Stakhov, Scott Olsen

By Alexey Stakhov, Scott Olsen

Professor Stakhov has written a ebook which can good swap not just the best way we view the historical past of arithmetic, however the destiny improvement of arithmetic in its program to the usual sciences and computing device layout. This e-book is the results of the author's 4 a long time of analysis within the box of Fibonacci numbers and the Golden suggest (also referred to as the Golden Ratio or the Golden part) and their functions. the amount includes chapters at the background of arithmetic, the generalized Fibonaccis and Lucas numbers, the generalized golden proportions, the golden algebraic equations, the generalized Binet formulation, Fibonacci and golden matrices, and hyperbolic types. Stakhov indicates purposes of quantity platforms (Bergman's numeral approach) with irrational radices in desktops, coding conception, cryptography and mobil mobilephone layout, simply because irrational numbers are not anything else than instructions for mathematical operations in house and time, see the place arithmetic Comes From: How the Embodied brain Brings arithmetic into Being.

Stakhov, of Russian and Ukrainian heritage, now residing in Toronto, Canada, is an exceptional member of a minority of scientists, who has discovered that the Golden suggest and its expression via Pascal's Triangle, Fibonacci and Lucas quantity lies on the very heart of the artistic precept of nature itself. fresh clinical advancements in physics, chemistry and cosmology have refocused awareness to the mathematical houses of the Golden suggest and its that means at the macrocosmic and microcosmic levels.

However, no medical paintings can ever be entire: Stakhov isn't really conscious of a few advancements in theoretical chemistry by means of Jan Boeyens, see quantity concept and the Periodicity of topic and Chemistry from First rules, assisting the elemental function of the golden suggest. additionally the publication a brand new type of technological know-how is filled with Pascal's Triangles!

Until now, from my viewpoint "From Golden suggest to Chaos" (printed in Argentina and, it's a pity, no longer on provide by way of amazon.com) by way of Vera de Spinadel is or used to be the main complicated ebook at the value of the Golden suggest. Stakhov cites this ebook, yet doesn't discuss with renormalization and the Kolmogorov-Arnold-Moser theorem, during which the Golden suggest performs a task, too.

Until now, our brains and pcs have a relatively diversified structure. even though, through encoding and deciphering the data entropy of a procedure no different wave may be extra optimum than a wavelet containing the Golden suggest and its arithmetic itself. certainly, according to empirical information, the paper "The golden suggest as clock cycle of mind waves", released in Chaos, Solitons and Fractals 18 (2003) 643-652, means that our mind makes use of those benefits of "The arithmetic of Harmony"! And already Roopun, A. ok. et al., Frontiers in Neuroscience 2 (2008) 145-154, proven empirically this end of the vast position of the Golden suggest in our processing of knowledge. Does our mind even paintings at the foundation of a Ternary Mirror-Symmetrical Numeral procedure, as invented via Stakhov?

The caliber of paper and print of this e-book is much above typical. at least you'll purchase a ebook, with the intention to locate its position within the historical past of science.

Branching Processes Applied to Cell Surface Aggregation by Catherine A. Macken, Alan S. Perelson

By Catherine A. Macken, Alan S. Perelson

Aggregation strategies are studied inside a few various fields--c- loid chemistry, atmospheric physics, astrophysics, polymer technology, and biology, to call just a couple of. Aggregation professional ces ses contain monomer devices (e. g., organic cells, liquid or colloidal droplets, latex beads, molecules, or perhaps stars) that subscribe to jointly to shape polymers or aggregates. A quantitative thought of aggre- tion was once first formulated in 1916 via Smoluchowski who proposed that the time e- lution of the combination measurement distribution is ruled by way of the countless procedure of differential equations: (1) okay . . c. c. - c ok = 1, 2, . . . ok 1. J 1. J L i+j=k j=l the place c is the focus of k-mers, and aggregates are assumed to shape via ir ok reversible condensation reactions [i-mer ] j-mer -+ (i+j)-mer]. whilst the kernel ok . . might be represented by way of A + B(i+j) + Cij, with A, B, and C consistent; and the in- 1. J itial is selected to correspond to a monodisperse resolution (i. e., c (0) = 1 zero, okay > 1), then the Smoluchowski equation might be co' a continuing; and ck(O) solved precisely (Trubnikov, 1971; Drake, 1972; Ernst, Hendriks, and Ziff, 1982; Dongen and Ernst, 1983; Spouge, 1983; Ziff, 1984). For arbitrary okay, the answer ij isn't identified and in a few ca ses won't even exist.
