Optimal transport : old and new by Cédric Villani( Book )

23 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At the close of the 1980s, the independent contributions of Yann Brenier, Mike Cullen and John Mather launched a revolution in the venerable field of optimal transport founded by G Monge in the 18th century, which has made breathtaking forays into various other domains of mathematics ever since. The author presents a broad overview of this area
Entropy methods for the Boltzmann equation : lectures from a special semester at the Centre Émile Borel, Institut H. Poincaré, Paris, 2001 by Fraydoun Rezakhanlou( Book )

20 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Entropy and entropy production have recently become mathematical tools for kinetic and hydrodynamic limits, when deriving the macroscopic behaviour of systems from the interaction dynamics of their many microscopic elementary constituents at the atomic or molecular level. During a special semester on Hydrodynamic Limits at the Centre ∞[beta]mile Borel in Paris, 2001 two of the research courses were held by C. Villani and F. Rezakhanlou. Both illustrate the major role of entropy and entropy production in a mutual and complementary manner and have been written up and updated for joint publication. Villani describes the mathematical theory of convergence to equilibrium for the Boltzmann equation and its relation to various problems and fields, including information theory, logarithmic Sobolev inequalities and fluid mechanics. Rezakhanlou discusses four conjectures for the kinetic behaviour of the hard sphere models and formulates four stochastic variations of this model, also reviewing known results for these

Birth of a theorem : a mathematical adventure by Cédric Villani( Book )

24 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An intimate look inside a mathematician's mind as he wrestles with the theorem that will make his reputation Cédric Villani is a rock-star mathematician. An intellect of unusual depth and breadth, he is the director of France's greatest mathematics research institute. In 2010 he received the Fields Medal, the most coveted prize in mathematics, for his proofs resolving one of the most controversial theories of classical physics. Birth of a Theorem is his own account of the year leading up to the award. It invites readers inside the mind of a genius as he wrestles with the most important work of his career. But you don't have to understand nonlinear Landau damping to love Birth of a Theorem. It doesn't simplify or overexplain; rather, it invites readers into collaboration. Villani's diaries, e-mails, and musings enmesh you in the process of discovery. You join him in unproductive lulls and late-night breakthroughs. You're privy to the mess-hall conversations of the world's greatest research institutions. Villani discusses his favorite songs, his love of manga, and the imaginative stories he tells his children. Mathematics is like any other creative work in that the thinker's whole life propels discovery--and with Birth of a Theorem, Villani welcomes you into his."--Résumé de l'éditeur

Comment j'ai détesté les maths by Olivier Peyon( Visual )

2 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in French and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Les maths vous ont toujours barbé ? vous avez toujours pensé qu'être nul en maths était une fatalité ? Bref vous les avez toujours détestées! On aurait pu se contenter d'en rire si elles n'avaient pris une telle place dans notre société : Apple, Google, Goldman Sachs ne sont plus qu'algorithmes et formules mathématiques. Comment les maths en sont-elles arrivées à souffrir d'une telle désaffection au moment même où elles dirigent le monde ? A travers un voyage aux quatre coins du monde avec les plus grands mathématiciens dont Cédric Villani (Médaille Fields 2010), Comment j'ai détesté les maths nous raconte comment les mathématiques ont bouleversé notre monde, pour le meilleur... et parfois pour le pire."

Les rêveurs lunaires : quatre génies qui ont changé l'histoire by Cédric Villani( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in French and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Werner Heisenberg, Alan Turing, Leo Szilard, Hugh Dowding, physiciens, mathématicien et militaire, ils ont été les acteurs cruciaux autant que discrets d'une aventure qui les dépassait : la Seconde Guerre mondiale. Un jour, une nuit, ils ont eu un éclair de lucidité qui a changé le monde. (4e de couv.)

Atoms by Jean Perrin( Book )

"Il y a cent ans, Jean Perrin, physicien de génie, publiait son ouvrage majeur Les Atomes. Admirablement écrit, l'ouvrage à la fois de vulgarisation et de haute valeur scientifique, explique, entre autres, les lois atomiques, la structure moléculaire, le mouvement brownien, les problèmes de la lumière et des quanta. Ce livre fit date en France comme à l'étranger car il était le premier ... à apporter la confirmation de l'existence effective des atomes. Les Atomes n'a rien perdu, aujourd'hui, de sa pertinence. ..." (4e de couv.)

Freedom in mathematics by P Cartier( Book )

9 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book challenges the views put forward by Pierre Cartier, one of the anchors of the famous Bourbaki group, and Cédric Villani, one of the most brilliant mathematicians of his generation, who received the Fields Medal in 2010. Jean Dhombres, mathematician and science historian, and Gerhard Heinzmann, philosopher of science and also a specialist in mathematics engage in a fruitful dialogue with the two mathematicians, prompting readers to reflect on mathematical activity and its social consequences in history as well as in the modern world. Cédric Villani's popular success proves once again that a common awareness has developed, albeit in a very confused way, of the major role of mathematics in the construction and efficiency of natural sciences, which are at the origin of our technologies. Despite this, the idea that mathematics cannot be shared remains firmly entrenched, a perceived failing that has even been branded a lack of culture by vocal forces in the media as well as cultural and political establishment. The authors explore three major directions in their dialogue: the highly complex relationship between mathematics and reality, the subject of many debates and opposing viewpoints; the freedom that the construction of mathematics has given humankind by enabling them to develop the natural sciences as well as mathematical research; and the responsibility with which the scientific community and governments should address the role of mathematics in research and education policies

Nonlinear PDE's and applications : C.I.M.E. Summer School, Cetraro, Italy, 2008 by Stefano Bianchini( Book )

5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume collects the notes of the CIME course "Nonlinear PDE's and applications" held in Cetraro (Italy) on June 23-28, 2008. It consists of four series of lectures, delivered by Stefano Bianchini (SISSA, Trieste), Eric A. Carlen (Rutgers University), Alexander Mielke (WIAS, Berlin), and Cédric Villani (Ecole Normale Superieure de Lyon). They presented a broad overview of far-reaching findings and exciting new developments concerning, in particular, optimal transport theory, nonlinear evolution equations, functional inequalities, and differential geometry. A sampling of the main topics considered here includes optimal transport, Hamilton-Jacobi equations, Riemannian geometry, and their links with sharp geometric/functional inequalities, variational methods for studying nonlinear evolution equations and their scaling properties, and the metric/energetic theory of gradient flows and of rate-independent evolution problems. The book explores the fundamental connections between all of these topics and points to new research directions in contributions by leading experts in these fields
