Conversations on mind, matter, and mathematics by Jean-Pierre Changeux( Book )

49 editions published between 1989 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 1,199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Les mathématiques et la biologie se trouvent aux deux extrémités du spectre de la science. D'un côté la rigueur logique, débarrassée de toute contingence matérielle, de l'autre une science d'observation, profondément tributaire de savoir-faire techniques et de concepts moraux. Ce livre d'entretiens tente de créer une passerelle entre ces disciplines que tout éloigne. Les deux auteurs, tous deux académiciens et professeurs au Collège de France, s'interrogent sur la nature de la pensée, l'existence des objets mathématiques ou le rapport entre le cerveau et les machines
Noncommutative geometry by Alain Connes( Book )

46 editions published between 1986 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 747 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Developed by Alain Connes, noncommutative geometry is the set of tools and methods that makes possible the classification and analysis of a broad range of objects beyond the reach of classical methods. This English version of the author's path-breaking French book on the subject gives the definitive treatment of his revolutionary approach to measure theory, geometry, and mathematical physics. Profusely illustrated and invitingly written, this book is ideal for anyone who wants to know what noncommutative geometry is, what it can do, or how it can be used in various areas of mathematics, quantization, and elementary particles and fields."--Jacket
On space and time by Shahn Majid( Book )

15 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in English and held by 481 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume brings together world leaders in cosmology, particle physics, quantum gravity, mathematics, philosophy and theology, to provide fresh insights into the deep structure of space and time. In one essay, Andrew Taylor explains the evidence for dark matter and dark energy
Triangle of thoughts by Alain Connes( Book )

14 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in 3 languages and held by 367 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ce dialogue entre trois mathématiciens offre une confrontation de trois points de vue sur les mathématiques et de trois pratiques de cette discipline. Le dialogue tourne autour de quatre thèmes : la nature des mathématiques, l'interprétation de la mécanique quantique et son unification avec la relativité, le temps mathématique et le temps humain
Noncommutative geometry, quantum fields and motives by Alain Connes( Book )

12 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 328 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The unifying theme of this book is the inter-play among noncommutative geometry, physics, and number theory. The two main objects of investigation are spaces where both the noncommutative and the motive aspects come to play a role: space-time, where the guiding principle is the problem of developing a quantum theory of gravity, and the space of primes, where one can regard the Riemann Hypothesis as a long-standing problem motivating the development of new geometric tools. The book stresses the relevance of noncommutative geometry in dealing with these two spaces."--Jacket
Noncommutative geometry : lectures given at the C.I.M.E. summer school held in Martina Franca, Italy, September 3-9, 2000 by Centro Internazionale Matematico Estivo( Book )

15 editions published in 2004 in English and German and held by 301 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Noncommutative Geometry is one of the most deep and vital research subjects of present-day Mathematics. Its development, mainly due to Alain Connes, is providing an increasing number of applications and deeper insights for instance in Foliations, K-Theory, Index Theory, Number Theory but also in Quantum Physics of elementary particles. The purpose of the Summer School in Martina Franca was to offer a fresh invitation to the subject and closely related topics; the contributions in this volume include the four main lectures, cover advanced developments and are delivered by prominent specialists

Renormalization and Galois theories( Book )

8 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume is the outcome of a CIRM Workshop on Renormalization and Galois Theories held in Luminy, France, in March 2006. The subject of this workshop was the interaction and relationship between four currently very active areas: renormalization in quantum field theory (QFT), differential Galois theory, noncommutative geometry, motives and Galois theory. The last decade has seen a burst of new techniques to cope with the various mathematical questions involved in QFT, with notably the development of a Hopf-algebraic approach and insights into the classes of numbers and special functions that systematically appear in the calculations of perturbative QFT (pQFT). The analysis of the ambiguities of resummation of the divergent series of pQFT, an old problem, has been renewed, using recent results on Gevrey asymptotics, generalized Borel summation, Stokes phenomenon and resurgent functions. The purpose of the present book is to highlight, in the context of renormalization, the convergence of these various themes, orchestrated by diverse Galois theories. It contains three lecture courses together with five research articles and will be useful to both researchers and graduate students in mathematics and physics."--Publisher's description

The mathematical century : the 30 greatest problems of the last 100 years by Piergiorgio Odifreddi( Book )

1 edition published in 2005 in French and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The twentieth century was a time of unprecedented development in mathematics, as well as in all sciences: more theorems were proved and results found in a hundred years than in all of previous history. In The Mathematical Century, Piergiorgio Odifreddi distills this unwieldy mass of knowledge into a fascinating and authoritative overview of the subject. He concentrates on thirty highlights of pure and applied mathematics. Each tells the story of an exciting problem, from its historical origins to its modern solution, in lively prose free of technical details." "This book will be treasured not only by students and their teachers but also by all those who seek to make sense of the elusive macrocosm of twentieth-century mathematics."--Jacket

Visions in Mathematics GAFA 2000 Special Volume, Part I by Noga Alon( )

9 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Visions in Mathematics - Towards 2000" was one of the most remarkable mathematical meetings in recent years. It was held in Tel Aviv from August 25th to September 3rd, 1999, and united some of the leading mathematicians worldwide. The goals of the conference were to discuss the importance, the methods, the past and the future of mathematics as we enter the 21st century and to consider the connection between mathematics and related areas. The aims of the conference are reflected in the present set of survey articles, documenting the state of art and future prospects in many branches of mathematics of current interest. This is the first part of a two-volume set that will serve any research mathematician or advanced student as an overview and guideline through the multifaceted body of mathematical research in the present and near future
