The standard starting point in cosmology is the cosmological principle; the assumption that the universe is spatially homogeneous and isotropic. After imposing this assumption, the only freedom left, as far as the geometry is concerned, is the choice of one out of three permissible spatial geometries, and one scalar function of time. Combining the cosmological principle with an appropriate description of the matter leads to the standard models. It is worth noting that these models yield quite a successful description of our universe. However, even though the universe may, or may not, be almost spatially homogeneous and isotropic, it is clear that the cosmological principle is not exactly satisfied. This leads to several questions. The most natural one concerns stability: given initial data corresponding to an expanding model of the standard type, do small perturbations give rise to solutions that are similar to the future? Another question concerns the shape of the universe: what are the restrictions if we only assume the universe to appear almost spatially homogeneous and isotropic to every observer? The main purpose of the book is to address these questions. However, to begin with, it is necessary to develop the general theory of the Cauchy problem for the Einstein-Vlasov equations. In order to to make the results accessible to researchers who are not mathematicians, but who are familiar with general relativity, the book contains an extensive prologue putting the results into a more general context.
This book is an updated version of the classic 1987 monograph "Spectral Theory and Differential Operators".The original book was a cutting edge account of the theory of bounded and closed linear operators in Banach and Hilbert spaces relevant to spectral problems involving differential equations. It is accessible to a graduate student as well as meeting the needs of seasoned researchers in mathematics and mathematical physics. This revised edition corrects various errors, and adds extensive notes to the end of each chapter which describe the considerable progress that has been made on the topic in the last 30 years.
"Basic Concepts in Physics: From the Cosmos to Quarks" is the outcome of the authors' long and varied teaching experience in different countries and for different audiences, and gives an accessible and eminently readable introduction to all the main ideas of modern physics. The book’s fresh approach, using a novel combination of historical and conceptual viewpoints, makes it ideal complementary reading to more standard textbooks. The first five chapters are devoted to classical physics, from planetary motion to special relativity, always keeping in mind its relevance to questions of contemporary interest. The next six chapters deal mainly with newer developments in physics, from quantum theory and general relativity to grand unified theories, and the book concludes by discussing the role of physics in living systems. A basic grounding in mathematics is required of the reader, but technicalities are avoided as far as possible; thus complex calculations are omitted so long as the essential ideas remain clear. The book is addressed to undergraduate and graduate students in physics and will also be appreciated by many professional physicists. It will likewise be of interest to students, researchers and teachers of other natural sciences, as well as to engineers, high-school teachers and the curious general reader, who will come to understand what physics is about and how it describes the different phenomena of Nature. Not only will readers of this book learn much about physics, they will also learn to love it.
This book describes a completely novel mathematical development which has already influenced probability theory, and has potential for application to engineering and to areas of pure mathematics. Intended for probabilists, mathematicians and engineers with a mathematical background from graduate level onwards, this book develops the evolution of complex non-linear systems subject to rough or rapidly fluctuating stimuli. Attention is focussed on an analysis of the relationship between the stimulus (or control) and the short to medium term evolution of a receiver (the response of the system). A rapidly fluctuation stimuli can be likened to a huge dataset; and a basic question is how best to reduce this dataset so as to capture the critical information and little else. An essential component problem involves identifying the point at which two different stimuli produce essentially the same response from the class of receivers. (When do two stereo sounds sound the same?). This is an essentially non-linear problem that requires novel mathematics. At one level, this book focuses on systems responding to such rough external stimuli, and demonstrates that the natural reduction approximates the stimuli as a sequence of nilpotent elements. The core result of the book is a continuity theorem that proves that the response of the system depends continuously on these nilpotent elements. A key mathematical aspect of the book is the notion of a rough path, based on combining the notion of p-variation of Wiener with the iterated integral expansions of paths introduced by K. T. Chen. The continuity theorem for these rough paths gives a new way to construct solutions to stochastic differential equations, providing a fresh approach to the Ito theory but also allowing new kinds of noisy perturbations (such as Fractional Brownian Motions) that cannot be discussed in the standard Ito approach. It also provides some interesting concrete examples of 'continuous freegroups'.
The topic of special functions, normally presented as a mere collection of functions exhibiting particular properties, is treated from a fresh and unusual perspective in this book. The authors have based the special functions on the theory of second-order ordinary differential equations in the complex domain. Several physical applications are presented. Numerous tables and figures will help the reader find his way through the subject.
' This book will serve as a strong stimulus to interest new researchers in summability' Zentralblatt MathematikSummability is a mathematical topic with a long tradition and with many applications in, e.g., function theory, number theory, and stochastics. The present book aims to introduce the reader to the wide field of summability and its applications, and provides an overview of the most important classical and modern methods used. Lecturers, graduate students, and researchers working in summability and related topics will find this a useful introduction and reference work.
Written by one of the subject's foremost experts, this is the first book on division space integration theory. It is intended to present a unified account of many classes of integrals including the Lebesgue-Bochner, Denjoy-Perron gauge, Denjoy-Hincin, Cesaro-Perron, and Marcinkiewicz-Zygmund integrals. Professor Henstock develops here the general axiomatic theory of Riemann-type integration from first principles in such a way that familiar classes of integrals (such as Lebesgue and Wiener integrals) are subsumed into the general theory in a systematic fashion. In particular, the theory seeks to place Feynman integration on a secure analytical footing. By adopting an axiomatic approach, proofs are, in general, simpler and more transparent than have previously appeared. The author also shows how one proof can prove corresponding results for a wide variety of integrals. As a result, this book will be the central reference work in this subject for many years to come.
