Charged Particle Traps: Physics and Techniques of Charged by Fouad G. Major, Viorica N. Gheorghe, Günther Werth

By Fouad G. Major, Viorica N. Gheorghe, Günther Werth

This e-book offers an creation and advisor to trendy advances in charged particle (and antiparticle) confinement by means of electromagnetic fields. Confinement in several catch geometries, the impact of seize imperfections, classical and quantum mechanical description of the trapped particle movement, diverse tools of ion cooling to low temperatures, and non-neutral plasma homes (including Coulomb crystals) are the most matters. They shape the foundation of such functions of charged particle traps as high-resolution optical and microwave spectroscopy, mass spectrometry, atomic clocks, and, most likely, quantum computing.

Combinatorial Identities for Stirling Numbers: The by Jocelyn Quaintance, Henry W. Gould

By Jocelyn Quaintance, Henry W. Gould

This booklet is a distinct paintings which supplies an in-depth exploration into the mathematical services, philosophy, and data of H W Gould. it truly is written in a mode that's available to the reader with easy mathematical wisdom, and but comprises fabric that might be of curiosity to the professional in enumerative combinatorics. This publication starts off with exposition at the combinatorial and algebraic ideas that Professor Gould makes use of for proving binomial identities. those thoughts are then utilized to enhance formulation which relate Stirling numbers of the second one style to Stirling numbers of the 1st type. Professor Gould's recommendations additionally offer connections among either different types of Stirling numbers and Bernoulli numbers. Professor Gould believes his examine good fortune comes from his instinct on easy methods to realize combinatorial identities.This ebook will attract a large viewers and should be used both as lecture notes for a starting graduate point combinatorics classification, or as a study complement for the expert in enumerative combinatorics.

Weltchronik des Messens: Universalgeschichte von Maß und by Heinz-Dieter Haustein

By Heinz-Dieter Haustein

Messen ist immer schon Macht und Menetekel zugleich, seit im alten Ägypten der Lauf der Gestirne über lange Zeiträume beobachtet, als Aktion der Götterwelt interpretiert und mit Hilfe der Vorhersage der alljährlichen Nilüberschwemmung der Arbeits- und Lebensrhythmus des Volkes bestimmt wurde. Diese umfassende Darstellung macht unmittelbar deutlich, wie die Geschichte der Zahlen und Gewichte und die Geschichte menschlicher Sozialformen einander beeinflußt haben. Die Weltchronik des Messens umfasst dreißig Jahrtausende: Sie berichtet vom Messen, Zählen und Rechnen, das in Artefakten, schriftlichen Zeugnissen, Bildern und Institutionen überliefert ist. Weit mehr als nur die Geschichte des Messwesens, der Maßeinheiten und der Münzen wird in der Chronik behandelt: sie stellt nahezu die gesamte Spannbreite menschlichen Messens - soziales Messen, technisches Messen und wissenschaftliches Messen - anschaulich dar. Synchronoptische Zeittafeln von der Steinzeit über die frühen Kulturen bis zur Zeit der modernen Informationstechnik und Telekommunikation ermöglichen dem Leser, die Wechselwirkungen der Messevolution zu entdecken. Das Sachgebietsregister bietet einen vollständigen Überblick über Astrometrie, Baumaß, Biometrie, Buchführung, Geldmaß, Kalender, Körpermaß, Messmittel, Soziometrie, Statistik, Zeitmaß und weitere Kategorien.

Concrete Abstract Algebra: From Numbers to Gröbner Bases by Niels Lauritzen

By Niels Lauritzen

Concrete summary Algebra develops the idea of summary algebra from numbers to Gr"obner bases, whereas takin in the entire ordinary fabric of a standard introductory path. furthermore, there's a wealthy offer of issues akin to cryptography, factoring algorithms for integers, quadratic residues, finite fields, factoring algorithms for polynomials, and platforms of non-linear equations. a unique characteristic is that Gr"obner bases don't seem as an remoted instance. they're absolutely built-in as an issue that may be effectively taught in an undergraduate context. Lauritzen's method of educating summary algebra relies on an intensive use of examples, purposes, and routines. the elemental philosophy is that inspiring, non-trivial purposes and examples supply motivation and straightforwardness the training of summary recommendations. This booklet is equipped on a number of years of skilled educating introductory summary algebra at Aarhus, the place the emphasis on concrete and encouraging examples has more desirable pupil functionality considerably.
