Elements of tensor calculus by André Lichnerowicz( Book )

107 editions published between 1950 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 1,199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This classic introductory text, geared toward undergraduate students of mathematics, is the work of an internationally renowned authority on tensor calculus. The two-part treatment offers a rigorous presentation of tensor calculus as a development of vector analysis as well as discussions of the most important applications of tensor calculus. Starting with a chapter on vector spaces, Part I explores affine Euclidean point spaces, tensor algebra, curvilinear coordinates in Euclidean space, and Riemannian spaces. Part II examines the use of tensors in classical analytical dynamics and details the role of tensors in special relativity theory. The book concludes with a brief presentation of the field equations of general relativity theory

Global theory of connections and holonomy groups by André Lichnerowicz( Book )

52 editions published between 1954 and 1976 in 6 languages and held by 531 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Looking back 200 years to the first state laws & forward to a political climate that threatens Roe's future legal status, this book combines a close & accessible analysis of the debates with a broad understanding of what is at stake politically & culturally. Giving due respect to both sides of the conflict, the authors effectively trace and analyze the core debates, examine the case's unique history, clarify the jurisprudence behind the Court's ruling, and gauge its impact on American society. Of special note is their revealing account of how the Court attempted to steer a middle course by rejecting both abortion on demand and the absolute right to life and yet, in the end, wound up igniting a firestorm of protest instead. Unlike other accounts of Roe, this one examines the complete social and legal context of the case. Hull and Hoffer review more than a century of abortion practice (and abuse), common-law views on abortion, nineteenth-century criminalization measures, and the rapid changes in science, public mores, and civil rights that finally brought the issue before the Supreme Court. They also trace abortion law through the twentieth century, reprise the 1965 case of Griswold v. Connecticut, in which the Supreme Court overturned a state law against contraceptives, and reexamine the highly publicized attempts to reverse Roe in Webster v. Reproductive Services (1989) and Casey v. Planned Parenthood (1992)

Differential geometry and relativity : a volume in honour of André Lichnerowicz on his 60th birthday by M Cahen( Book )

13 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On the occasion of the sixtieth birthday of Andre Lichnerowicz a number of his friends, many of whom have been his students or coworkers, decided to celebrate this event by preparing a jubilee volume of contributed articles in the two main fields of research marked by Lichnerowicz's work, namely differential geometry and mathematical physics. Limitations of space and time did not enable us to include papers from all Lichnerowicz's friends nor from all his former students. It was equally impossible to reflect in a single book the great variety of subjects tackled by Lichnerowicz. In spite of these limitations, we hope that this book reflects some of the present trends of fields in which he worked, and some of the subjects to which he contributed in his long - and not yet finished - career. This career was very much marked by the influence of his masters, Elie Cartan who introduced him to research in mathematics, mainly in geometry and its relations with mathematical physics, and Georges Darmois who developed his interest for mechanics and physics, especially the theory of relativity and electromagnetism. This par ticular combination, and his personal talent, made of him a natural scientific heir and continuator of the French mathematical physics school in the tradition of Henri Poincare. Some of his works would even be best qualified by a new field name, that of physical ma thematics: branches of pure mathematics entirely motivated by physics

Magnetohydrodynamics--waves and shock waves in curved space-time by André Lichnerowicz( Book )

12 editions published between 1994 and 2011 in English and held by 214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume presents a unified theory of shock waves corresponding to gravitational and electromagnetic fields and to magnetohydrodynamics in the context of general relativity. The common tool employed is provided by tensor distribution -- an approach which has been systematically developed by the author since 1962. One remarkable result is that this yields a complete theory of magnetohydrodynamic shock waves, which can also be applied to the treatment of pulsars. The same method is also applicable to the quantization of some physical fields in curved space-time. This, too, is discussed in the book. For graduate students and researchers in mathematical physics and theoretical astrophysics
Physics on manifolds : proceedings of the international colloquium in honour of Yvonne Choquet-Bruhat, Paris, June 3-5, 1992 by M Flato( Book )

11 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The role of the geometry of manifolds in space-time physics, and that of functional analysis in quantum mechanics and quantum field theory have become increasingly important. This is particularly true in the study of the global behaviour of solutions of differential systems on manifolds, and their implications to general relativity. Yvonne Choquet-Bruhat has contributed much to this exciting area of mathematical physics, and her work on the existence of solutions to Einstein's equations on differential manifolds of a general type has subsequently stimulated and inspired much important research. She has also played a pioneering role in the study of global problems, especially in gauge field theory and supergravity, and in the development of a theory of asymptotic gravitational and electromagnetic waves. The various contributions appearing in this volume, authored by eminent scientists, illustrate the latest developments in the many areas of contemporary physics which have greatly benefited from Choquet-Bruhat's work and influence. For mathematical physicists with an interest in relativity, quantum mechanics and field theory
