Author: Albert-laszlo Barabasi

The best-selling guide to network science, the revolutionary field that reveals the deep links between all forms of human social life

A cocktail party. A terrorist cell. Ancient bacteria. An international conglomerate. All are networks, and all are a part of a surprising scientific revolution. In Linked, Albert-László Barabási, the nation's foremost expert in the new science of networks, takes us on an intellectual adventure to prove that social networks, corporations, and living organisms are more similar than previously thought. Barabási shows that grasping a full understanding of network science will someday allow us to design blue-chip businesses, stop the outbreak of deadly diseases, and influence the exchange of ideas and information. Just as James Gleick and the Erdos-Rényi model brought the discovery of chaos theory to the general public, Linked tells the story of the true science of the future and of experiments in statistical mechanics on the internet, all vital parts of what would eventually be called the Barabási-Albert model.

How is the human brain like the AIDS epidemic? Ask physicist Albert-László Barabási and he'll explain them both in terms of networks of individual nodes connected via complex but understandable relationships. Linked: The New Science of Networks is his bright, accessible guide to the fundamentals underlying neurology, epidemiology, Internet traffic, and many other fields united by complexity.

Barabási's gift for concrete, nonmathematical explanations and penchant for eccentric humor would make the book thoroughly enjoyable even if the content weren't engaging. But the results of Barabási's research into the behavior of networks are deeply compelling. Not all networks are created equal, he says, and he shows how even fairly robust systems like the Internet could be crippled by taking out a few super-connected nodes, or hubs. His mathematical descriptions of this behavior are helping doctors, programmers, and security professionals design systems better suited to their needs. Linked presents the next step in complexity theory--from understanding chaos to practical applications. --Rob Lightner

Lowest used price: $67.96
List price: $78.00
Author: Glenn E Sjoden

Foundations in Applied Nuclear Engineering Analysis (2nd Edition) covers a fastpaced one semester course to address concepts of modeling in mathematics, engineering analysis, and computational problem solving needed in subjects such as radiation interactions, heat transfer, reactor physics, radiation transport, numerical modeling, etc., for success in a nuclear engineering/medical physics curriculum. While certain topics are covered tangentially, others are covered in depth to target on the appropriate amalgam of topics for success in navigating nuclearrelated disciplines. Software examples and programming are used throughout the book, since computational capabilities are essential for new engineers. The book contains a array of topics that cover the essential subjects expected for students to successfully navigate into nuclearrelated disciplines. The text assumes that students have familiarity with undergraduate mathematics and physics, and are ready to apply those skills to problems in nuclear engineering. Applications and problem sets are directed toward problems in nuclear science. Software examples using Mathematica software are used in the text. This text was developed as part of a very applied course in mathematical physics methods for nuclear engineers. The course in Nuclear Engineering Analysis that follows this text began at the University of Florida; the 2nd edition was released while at the Georgia Institute of Technology.

Author: Jean-Philippe Bouchaud

The widespread availability of high-quality, high-frequency data has revolutionised the study of financial markets. By describing not only asset prices, but also market participants' actions and interactions, this wealth of information offers a new window into the inner workings of the financial ecosystem. In this original text, the authors discuss empirical facts of financial markets and introduce a wide range of models, from the micro-scale mechanics of individual order arrivals to the emergent, macro-scale issues of market stability. Throughout this journey, data is king. All discussions are firmly rooted in the empirical behaviour of real stocks, and all models are calibrated and evaluated using recent data from Nasdaq. By confronting theory with empirical facts, this book for practitioners, researchers and advanced students provides a fresh, new, and often surprising perspective on topics as diverse as optimal trading, price impact, the fragile nature of liquidity, and even the reasons why people trade at all.

Author: S.R.S. Varadhan
Brand: Brand: Springer

From the Preface: Srinivasa Varadhan began his research career at the Indian Statistical Institute (ISI), Calcutta, where he started as a graduate student in 1959. His first paper appeared in Sankhyá, the Indian Journal of Statistics in 1962. Together with his fellow students V. S. Varadarajan, R. Ranga Rao and K. R. Parthasarathy, Varadhan began the study of probability on topological groups and on Hilbert spaces, and quickly gained an international reputation. At this time Varadhan realised that there are strong connections between Markov processes and differential equations, and in 1963 he came to the Courant Institute in New York, where he has stayed ever since. Here he began working with the probabilists Monroe Donsker and Marc Kac, and of a young graduate student named Daniel Stroock. He wrote a series of papers on the Martingale Problem and diffusions together with Stroock, and another series of papers on Large Deviations together with Donsker. With this work Varadhan's reputation as one of the leading mathematicians of the time was firmly established. Since then he has contributed to several other topics in probability, analysis and physics, and collaborated with several distinguished mathematicians. These Collected Works contain all his research papers over the half-century from 1962 to early 2012. Volume IV includes the papers on particle systems.

Organized around the central concept of a vector space, the book includes numerous physical applications in the body of the text as well as many problems of a physical nature. It is also one of the purposes of this book to introduce the physicist to the language and style of mathematics as well as the content of those particular subjects with contemporary relevance in physics.
Chapters 1 and 2 are devoted to the mathematics of classical physics. Chapters 3, 4 and 5 — the backbone of the book — cover the theory of vector spaces. Chapter 6 covers analytic function theory. In chapters 7, 8, and 9 the authors take up several important techniques of theoretical physics — the Green's function method of solving differential and partial differential equations, and the theory of integral equations. Chapter 10 introduces the theory of groups. The authors have included a large selection of problems at the end of each chapter, some illustrating or extending mathematical points, others stressing physical application of techniques developed in the text.
Essentially self-contained, the book assumes only the standard undergraduate preparation in physics and mathematics, i.e. intermediate mechanics, electricity and magnetism, introductory quantum mechanics, advanced calculus and differential equations. The text may be easily adapted for a one-semester course at the graduate or advanced undergraduate level.
