U4 = Reihentext + Werbetext für dieses Buch Werbetext: 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
)
26 editions published between 1997 and 2008 in English and held by 536 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The subject of elliptic curves is one of the jewels of nineteenthcentury mathematics, whose masters were 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. It combines three of the fundamental themes of mathematics: complex function theory, geometry, and arithmetic. After an informal preparatory chapter, the book follows a historical path, beginning with the work of Abel and Gauss on elliptic integrals and elliptic functions. This is followed by chapters on theta functions, modular groups and modular functions, the quintic, the imaginary quadratic field, and on elliptic curves. The many exercises with hints scattered throughout the text give the reader a glimpse of further developments. 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

Marking the (1,2) points of the Brownian web and applications by
Emmanuel Schertzer(
Book
)
2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Brownian web (BW), which developed from the work of Arratia and then Toth and Werner, is a random collection of paths (with specified starting points) in one plus one dimensional spacetime that arises as the scaling limit of the discrete web (DW) of coalescing simple random walks. Two recently introduced extensions of the BW, the Brownian net (BN) constructed by Sun and Swart, and the dynamical Brownian web (DyBW) proposed by Howitt and Warren, are (or should be) scaling limits of corresponding discrete extensions of the DWthe discrete net (DN) and the dynamical discrete web (DyDW). These discrete extensions have a natural geometric structure in which the underlying Bernoulli left or right "arrow" structure of the DW is extended by means of branching (i.e., allowing left and right simultaneously) to construct the DN or by means of switching (i.e., from left to right and viceversa) to construct the DyDW. We show that there is a similar structure in the continuum where arrow direction is replaced by the left or right parity of the (1, 2) spacetime points of the BW (points with one incoming path from the past and two outgoing paths to the future, only one of which is a continuation of the incoming path). We then provide a complete construction of the DyBW and an alternate construction of the BN to that of Sun and Swart by proving that the switching or branching can be implemented by a Poissonian marking of the (1, 2) points. Beyond the BN and the DyBW, we apply our marking technology to construct two other continuum objects. One is the scaling limit of a variation of the onedimensional stochastics Potts model at low temperature (the boundary nucleation model). The second is a class of stochastic flows of kernels that can be interpreted as diffusions in a random medium

Large deviation lower bounds for the totally asymmetric simple exclusion process by Yevgeny Vilensky(
Book
)
2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The totally asymmetric simple exclusion process (TASEP) has been shown to have a hydrodynamic scaling limit under the hyperbolic scaling of space and time. This limit is a measure, whose density with respect to Lebesgue measure is given by the unique entropy weak solution to a nonlinear partial differential equation in conservation form. Large deviations for this problem had been studied by Jensen in his thesis, who proved the upper bound and obtained a lower bound result for nonentropic weak solutions that are constant away from a single line of constant speed [3]. The subject of this thesis is the extension of the lower bound result to a wider class of nonentropic weak solutions. In particular, we show that for weak solutions that are entropic away from smooth curves and which have sufficient regularity, the lower bound holds. We prove locality results that show that the entropy of a modified TASEP (relative to a standard TASEP), with modifications applied locally at macroscopically separated sites, can be decomposed into the sum, over all such sites, of the relative entropies of TASEPs with just one modification

Universal symplectic forms in the soliton theory by Fedor Soloviev(
Book
)
2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Using KricheverPhong's universal formula, we show that a multiplicative representation linearizes Sklyanian quadratic brackets for a multipole Lax function with a spectral parameter. The spectral parameter can be either rational or elliptic. As a byproduct, 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. KricheverPhong's formula provides a hierarchy of symplectic structures, and we show that there exists a nontrivial 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

Randomly trapped random walks by Roman Royfman(
Book
)
2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The model introduced in this work model, Randomly Trapped Random Walk (RTRW), is a general framework to study a onedimensional motion in a random trapping environment. We develop tools to study its scaling limits. We discover that all possible limits of RTRW can be represented as a Brownian motion timechanged by a Levy subordinator. More precisely, we will show that if the trapping landscape is homogeneous, RTRW exhibits diffusive behavior. On the other hand, in inhomogeneous environments, RTRW is nondiffusive. The set of possible limits of RTRW (in inhomogeneous environments) is extremely rich. In particular, it includes Fractional Kinetics, which was initially introduced as a scaling limit of Continuous Time Random Walk, as well as a new broad class of processes, which we call Randomly Trapped Brownian Motions. This class contains a singular diffusion, which was recently introduced by Fontes, Isopi and Newman. We give various examples, some of the of a geometric nature, i.e. the Comb Model

Universality of random Hamiltonians by Alexey Kuptsov(
Book
)
2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
We introduce a new REM universality conjecture for levels of random Hamiltonians, in the same spirit as the local REM conjecture made by S. Mertens and H. Bauke. We establish our conjecture for a wide class of Gaussian and nonGaussian Hamiltonians, which include the pspin models, the SherringtonKirkpatrick model and the number partitioning problem. We prove that our universality result is optimal for the last two models by showing when this universality breaks down. In addition, we improve the previously known results on Merten's conjecture. In particular, we prove that the local REM universality holds for pspin models with p larger than 2 for energy scales of the same order as the maximum

We consider the onedimensional focusing nonlinear Schrodinger equation (NLS) on R with a delta potential qdelta0(x) and even initial data. Due to the specific choice of the potential and initial data, the equation reduces to the initial boundary value (IBV) problem for the NLS equation on a halfline with homogeneous boundary conditions at x = 0: such problems are known to be integrable by an extension of the inverse scattering method

We consider random walks in stationary ergodic random environments. In the case of uniformly elliptic walks, we prove the existence of quenched harmonic functions of the form ethetax+f (x) for some sublinear f, and a specific class of theta. We then move to a spacetime environment and prove minimality theorems for such functions in a special case
