Download J-holomorphic curves and quantum cohomology by Dusa McDuff and Dietmar Salamon PDF

By Dusa McDuff and Dietmar Salamon

J$-holomorphic curves revolutionized the learn of symplectic geometry whilst Gromov first brought them in 1985. via quantum cohomology, those curves are actually associated with the various most enjoyable new principles in mathematical physics. This e-book offers the 1st coherent and entire account of the speculation of $J$-holomorphic curves, the main points of that are shortly scattered in a variety of learn papers. the 1st 1/2 the booklet is an expository account of the sector, explaining the most technical points. McDuff and Salamon supply entire proofs of Gromov's compactness theorem for spheres and of the lifestyles of the Gromov-Witten invariants. the second one 1/2 the booklet specializes in the definition of quantum cohomology. The authors identify that this multiplication exists, and provides a brand new facts of the Ruan-Tian consequence that's associative on acceptable manifolds. They then describe the Givental-Kim calculation of the quantum cohomology of flag manifolds, resulting in quantum Chern periods and Witten's calculation for Grassmannians, which pertains to the Verlinde algebra. The Dubrovin connection, Gromov-Witten power on quantum cohomology, and curve counting formulation also are mentioned. The ebook closes with an overview of connections to Floer idea

Download Families of Conformally Covariant Differential Operators, by Andreas Juhl PDF

By Andreas Juhl

The relevant item of the publication is Q-curvature. this crucial and refined scalar Riemannian curvature volume was once brought by way of Tom Branson approximately 15 yr in the past in reference to variational formulation for determinants of conformally covariant differential operators. The e-book experiences structural homes of Q-curvature from an extrinsic viewpoint through relating to it as a derived volume of definite conformally covariant households of differential operators that are linked to hypersurfaces. the hot procedure is on the leading edge of significant advancements in conformal differential geometry within the final twenty years (Fefferman-Graham ambient metrics, spectral concept on Poincaré-Einstein areas, tractor calculus, Verma modules and Cartan geometry). the speculation of conformally covariant households is electrified by means of the belief of holography within the AdS/CFT-duality. between different issues, it evidently results in a holographic description of Q-curvature. The equipment admit generalizations in numerous instructions.

Download Analysis and Control of Nonlinear Systems: A Flatness-based by Jean Levine PDF

By Jean Levine

This is the 1st publication on a sizzling subject within the box of keep watch over of nonlinear platforms. It levels from mathematical method concept to useful commercial keep watch over purposes and addresses basic questions in structures and keep an eye on: tips on how to plan the movement of a approach and tune the corresponding trajectory in presence of perturbations. It emphasizes on structural facets and particularly on a category of structures referred to as differentially flat.

Part 1 discusses the mathematical conception and half 2 outlines functions of this technique within the fields of electrical drives (DC automobiles and linear synchronous motors), magnetic bearings, automobile equipments, cranes, and automated flight keep an eye on systems.

The writer bargains web-based movies illustrating a few dynamical facets and case stories in simulation (Scilab and Matlab).

Download Structure of Dynamical Systems: A Symplectic View of Physics by Souriau, Jean-Marie PDF

By Souriau, Jean-Marie

This ebook is addressed to graduate scholars and researchers in arithmetic and physics who're drawn to mathematical and theoretical physics, symplectic geometry, mechanics, and (geometric) quantization. the purpose of the ebook is to regard all 3 simple theories of physics, particularly, classical mechanics, statistical mechanics, and quantum mechanics from an analogous standpoint, that of symplectic geometry, therefore exhibiting the unifying strength of the symplectic geometric technique. interpreting this booklet will supply the reader a deep knowing of the interrelationships among the 3 easy theories of physics. the 1st tow chapters give you the valuable mathematical heritage in differential geometry, Lie teams, and symplectic geometry. In bankruptcy three a coherent symplectic description of Galilean and relativistic mechanics is given, culminating within the type of trouble-free debris (relativistic and non-relativistic, without or with spin, without or with mass). In bankruptcy four statistical mechanics is placed into symplectic shape, completing with a symplectic description of the kinetic thought of gases and the computation of particular heats. ultimately, in bankruptcy five the writer offers his thought of geometric quantization. Highlights of this bankruptcy are the derivations of varied wave equations and the development of the Fock house.

Download Geometry, Topology and Quantization by Pratul Bandyopadhyay (auth.) PDF

By Pratul Bandyopadhyay (auth.)

This is a monograph on geometrical and topological beneficial properties which come up in quite a few quantization approaches. Quantization schemes ponder the feasibility of arriving at a quantum procedure from a classical one and those contain 3 significant systems viz. i) geometric quantization, ii) Klauder quantization, and iii) stochastic quanti­ zation. In geometric quantization we need to comprise a hermitian line package deal to successfully generate the quantum Hamiltonian operator from a classical Hamil­ tonian. Klauder quantization additionally takes under consideration the position of the relationship one-form besides coordinate independence. In stochastic quantization as professional­ posed by way of Nelson, Schrodinger equation is derived from Brownian movement tactics; although, we've hassle in its relativistic generalization. it's been mentioned by means of numerous authors that this can be circumvented through formulating a brand new geometry the place Brownian movement proceses are thought of in exterior in addition to in inner house and, whilst the complexified space-time is taken into account, the standard direction indispensable formula is accomplished. whilst this inner house variable is taken into account as a direc­ tion vector introducing an anisotropy within the inner area, we have now the quantization of a Fermi box. This is helping us to formulate a stochastic part area formalism whilst the interior extension could be handled as a gauge theoretic extension. this means that vast fermions might be regarded as Skyrme solitons. The nonrelativistic quantum mechanics is completed within the sharp element limit.
