Diffusion processes and their sample paths by Kiyosi Itō( Book )

53 editions published between 1964 and 2010 in English and German and held by 853 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since its first publication in 1965 in the series Grundlehren der mathematischen Wissenschaften this book has had a profound and enduring influence on research into the stochastic processes associated with diffusion phenomena. Generations of mathematicians have appreciated the clarity of the descriptions given of one- or more- dimensional diffusion processes and the mathematical insight provided into Brownian motion. Now, with its republication in the Classics in Mathematics it is hoped that a new generation will be able to enjoy the classic text of Itô and McKean."

Elliptic curves : function theory, geometry, arithmetic by Henry P McKean( Book )

29 editions published between 1997 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 570 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The subject of elliptic curves is one of the jewels of nineteenth-century mathematics, originated by Abel, Gauss, Jacobi, and Legendre. This book presents an introductory account of the subject in the style of the original discoverers, with references to and comments about more recent and modern developments. The treatment combines three of the fundamental themes of mathematics: complex function theory, geometry, and arithmetics. Requiring only a first acquaintance with complex function theory, this book is an ideal introduction to the subject for graduate students and researchers in mathematics and physics. The many exercises with hints scattered throughout the text give the reader a glimpse of further developments

Probability : the classical limit theorems by Henry P McKean( Book )

13 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Probability theory has been extraordinarily successful at describing a variety of phenomena, from the behaviour of gases to the transmission of messages, and is, besides, a powerful tool with applications throughout mathematics. At its heart are a number of concepts familiar in one guise or another to many: Gauss' bell-shaped curve, the law of averages, and so on, concepts that crop up in so many settings they are in some sense universal. This universality is predicted by probability theory to a remarkable degree. This book explains that theory and investigates its ramifications. Assuming a good working knowledge of basic analysis, real and complex, the author maps out a route from basic probability, via random walks, Brownian motion, the law of large numbers and the central limit theorem, to aspects of ergodic theorems, equilibrium and nonequilibrium statistical mechanics, communication over a noisy channel, and random matrices. Numerous examples and exercises enrich the text

Universal symplectic forms in the soliton theory by Fedor Soloviev( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Using Krichever-Phong's universal formula, we show that a multiplicative representation linearizes Sklyanian quadratic brackets for a multi-pole Lax function with a spectral parameter. The spectral parameter can be either rational or elliptic. As a by-product, we obtain an extension of a Sklyanin algebra in the elliptic case. We discuss applications of these results to isospectral and isomonodromic equations with discrete time. Krichever-Phong's formula provides a hierarchy of symplectic structures, and we show that there exists a non-trivial cubic bracket in Sklyanin's case. Also, we consider a generalization of the universal formula to variable base curves (suggested in [22]) in the simplest possible case of a rational base curve with moving marked points
Henry P. McKean Jr. selecta by Henry P McKean( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume presents a selection of papers by Henry P. McKean, which illustrate the various areas in mathematics in which he has made seminal contributions. Topics covered include probability theory, integrable systems, geometry and financial mathematics. Each paper represents a contribution by Prof. McKean, either alone or together with other researchers, that has had a profound influence in the respective area" --
The nonlinear Schroedinger equation with a delta potential and even initial data by Jungwoon Park( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The main result of this thesis concerns the asymptotic stability of the stationary 1-soliton solution of the equation under perturbation. In particular, for perturbations comparable in strength to the delta potential, we show that it takes time of order q--2 for the solution to relax down to a pure soliton oscillation. The situation is different for q> 0 and q <0. For q> 0, the asymptotic state as t & rarr; infinity is a 1-soliton oscillation: for q <0, the asymptotic state is generically a 2-soliton oscillation. Our work strengthens, and extends, earlier work on the problem by Holmer and Zworski
Stationary approximations to non-stationary stochastic processes by Uri Keich( )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The problem of approximating a non-stationary process with a stationary one comes out naturally when one tries to study the subject of "locally stationary stochastic processes". Although not defined, intuitively, these are processes that are well approximated by stationary ones
Genesis and extinction of solitons arising from individual flows of the Camassa-Holm hierarchy: The rise of a novel Darboux-like transform by Enrique Loubet( )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Let m be summable and odd, having the signature of x, and consider the individual flow based upon H = 1/ l with l> 0. With the help of a private "Lagrangian" scale determined by x¯· = -f 2(t, x¯) and x¯(0, x) = x; the updated velocity profile (etXH v(0, ·)) (x¯) & equiv; v(t, x¯(t, x)) is found to shape itself like the soliton Sl (t, x) = 1/(2 l & parr0;e- & vbm0;x-t/2l & vbm0; escaping to -infinity as t & uarr; +infinity, leaving behind a "residual" v(+infinity, x¯(+infinity, x)) having the same spectrum as the one attached to the initial v(0, x) except that l is excised. Doubtless, the map induced by the large time asymptotics v(0, x) v(+infinity, x¯(+infinity, x)), is some counterpart of the standard Darboux transformation for removing/adding the bottom bound state for KdV, with the difference now that you need not proceed in such orderly fashion. I did not succeed in casting such correspondence in the form of an "addition" as in McKean [25], but it should be closely connected to that circle of ideas
A Baernstein problem of p-harmonic measures and an invariance of p-harmonic functions under boundary perturbations using tug-of-war with noise by Sungwook Kim( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Given a planar domain O and p & isin; (1, infinity), let Hf denote the p-harmonic extension to O of a boundary function f : & part;O & rarr; R (as defined via Perron's method). We show that if f is a piecewise continuous function, O is piecewise smooth near where f is discontinuous, and g is a bounded function on & part;O such that g = f on & part;O\ E where E & sub; R2 is a countable set with op(E, O) = 0, then Hf = H g. In particular, this solves a problem posed by Baernstein in 1998, who asked the question for 0-1 valued F and F & tilde; on the unit circle; it extends work of Bjorn, Bjorn, and Shanmugalingam, who answered the question for 1 <p & le; 2. A key step is to show that p-harmonic extensions approximately agree with harmonic extensions in a neighborhood of a jump discontinuity
