Lunar Outpost provides a detailed account of the various technologies, mission architectures, medical requirements and training needed to return humans to the Moon within the next decade. It focuses on the means by which a lunar outpost will be constructed and also addresses major topics such as the cost of the enterprise and the roles played by private companies and individual countries. The return of humans to the surface of the Moon will be critical to the exploration of the solar system. The various missions are not only in pursuit of scientific knowledge, but also looking to extend human civilization, economic expansion, and public engagement beyond Earth. As well as NASA, China's Project 921, Japan's Aerospace Exploration Agency, Russia, and the European Space Agency are all planning manned missions to the Moon and, eventually, to Mars. The Ares-I and Ares-V are the biggest rockets since the Saturn V and there is much state-of-the-art technology incorporated into the design of Orion, the spacecraft that will carry a crew of four astronauts to the Moon. Lunar Outpost also describes the human factors, communications, exploration activities, and life support constraints of the missions

Having its classical roots, since more than a century, in algebraic number theory, algebraic geometry and the theory of ordered fields and groups, valuation theory has seen an amazing expansion into many other areas in recent decades. Moreover, having been dormant for a while in algebraic geometry, it has now been reintroduced as a tool to attack the open problem of resolution of singularities in positive characteristic and to analyse the structure of singularities. Driven by this topic, and by its many new applications in other areas, also the research in valuation theory itself has been intensified, with a particular emphasis on the deep open problems in positive characteristic. As important examples for the expansion of valuation theory, it has become extremely useful in the theory of complex dynamical systems, and in the study of non-oscillating trajectories of real analytic vector fields in three dimensions. Analogues of the Riemann-Zariski valuation spaces have been found to be the proper framework for questions of intersection theory in algebraic geometry and in the analysis of singularities of complex plurisubharmonic functions. In a different direction, the relation between Berkovich geometry, tropical geometry and valuation spaces, on the one hand, and the geometry of arc spaces and valuation spaces, on the other, have begun to deepen and clarify. Ever since its beginnings, valuation theory and Galois theory have grown closely together and influenced each other. Arguably, studying and understanding the extensions of valuations in algebraic field extensions is one of the most important questions in valuation theory, whereas using valuation theory is one of he most important tools in studying Galois extensions of fields, as well as constructing field extensions with given properties. The well established topic of the model theory of valued fields is also being transformed, in particular through the study of valued fields with functions and operators, a
Stability of queueing networks : École d'Été de Probabilités de Saint-Flour XXXVI - 2006 by Maury Bramson( )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Queueing networks constitute a large family of stochastic models, involving jobs that enter a network, compete for service, and eventually leave the network upon completion of service. Since the early 1990s, substantial attention has been devoted to the question of when such networks are stable. This volume presents a summary of such work. Emphasis is placed on the use of fluid models in showing stability, and on examples of queueing networks that are unstable even when the arrival rate is less than the service rate. The material of this volume is based on a series of nine lectures given at the Saint-Flour Probability Summer School 2006. Lectures were also given by Alice Guionnet and Steffen Lauritzen

The moduli problem for plane branches by Oscar Zariski( Book )

5 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Moduli problems in algebraic geometry date back to Riemann's famous count of the 3g - 3 parameters needed to determine a curve of genus g. In this book, Zariski studies the moduli space of curves of the same equisingularity class."--BOOK JACKET

Pseudo-differential operators : quantization and signals : lectures given at the C.I.M.E. Summer School held in Cetraro, Italy, June 19-24, 2006 by Hans G Feichtinger( )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pseudo-differential operators were initiated by Kohn, Nirenberg and Hörmander in the sixties of the last century. Beside applications in the general theory of partial differential equations, they have their roots also in the study of quantization first envisaged by Hermann Weyl thirty years earlier. Thanks to the understanding of the connections of wavelets with other branches of mathematical analysis, quantum physics and engineering, such operators have been used under different names as mathematical models in signal analysis since the last decade of the last century. The volume investigates the mathematics of quantization and signals in the context of pseudo-differential operators, Weyl transforms, Daubechies operators, Wick quantization and time-frequency localization operators. Applications to quantization, signal analysis and the modern theory of PDE are highlighted
A theory of shape identification by Frédéric Cao( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Recent years have seen dramatic progress in shape recognition algorithms applied to ever-growing image databases. They have been applied to image stitching, stereo vision, image mosaics, solid object recognition and video or web image retrieval. More fundamentally, the ability of humans and animals to detect and recognize shapes is one of the enigmas of perception. The book describes a complete method that starts from a query image and an image database and yields a list of the images in the database containing shapes present in the query image. A false alarm number is associated to each detection. Many experiments will show that familiar simple shapes or images can reliably be identified with false alarm numbers ranging from 10-5 to less than 10-300. Technically speaking, there are two main issues. The first is extracting invariant shape descriptors from digital images. The second is deciding whether two shape descriptors are identifiable as the same shape or not. A perceptual principle, the Helmholtz principle, is the cornerstone of this decision. These decisions rely on elementary stochastic geometry and compute a false alarm number. The lower this number, the more secure the identification. The description of the processes, the many experiments on digital images and the simple proofs of mathematical correctness are interlaced so as to make a reading accessible to various audiences, such as students, engineers, and researchers
Compactifying moduli spaces for Abelian varieties by Martin C Olsson( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume presents the construction of canonical modular compactifications of moduli spaces for polarized Abelian varieties (possibly with level structure), building on the earlier work of Alexeev, Nakamura, and Namikawa. This provides a different approach to compactifying these spaces than the more classical approach using toroical embeddings, which are not canonical. There are two main new contributions in this monograph: (1) The introduction of logarithmic geometry as understood by Fontaine, Illusie, and Kato to the study of degenerating Abelian varieties; and (2) the construction of canonical compactifications for moduli spaces with higher degree polarizations based on stack-theoretic techniques and a study of the theta group
Séminaire de probabilités XLI by Catherine Donati-Martin( Book )

Annotation. Stochastic processes are as usual the main subject of the Šminaire, with contributions on Brownian motion (fractional or other), Lvy processes, martingales and probabilistic finance. Other probabilistic themes are also present: large random matrices, statistical mechanics. The contributions in this volume provide a sampling of recent results on these topics. All contributions with the exception of two are written in English language
Information geometry : near randomness and near independence by Khadiga A Arwini( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Annotation This volume will be useful to practising scientists and students working in the application of statistical models to real materials or to processes with perturbations of a Poisson process, a uniform process, or a state of independence for a bivariate process. We use information geometry to provide a common differential geometric framework for a wide range of illustrative applications including amino acid sequence spacings in protein chains, cryptology studies, clustering of communications and galaxies, cosmological voids, coupled spatial statistics in stochastic fibre networks and stochastic porous media, quantum chaology. Introduction sections are provided to mathematical statistics, differential geometry and the information geometry of spaces of probability density functions
Operator-valued measures and integrals for cone-valued functions by Walter Roth( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Integration theory deals with extended real-valued, vector-valued, or operator-valued measures and functions. Different approaches are applied in each of these cases using different techniques. The order structure of the (extended) real number system is used for real-valued functions and measures, whereas suprema and infima are replaced with topological limits in the vector-valued case. A novel approach employing more general structures, locally convex cones, which are natural generalizations of locally convex vector spaces, is introduced here. This setting allows developing a general theory of integration which simultaneously deals with all of the above-mentioned cases
Local Lyapunov exponents : sublimiting growth rates of linear random differential equations by Wolfgang Siegert( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Establishing a new concept of local Lyapunov exponents the author brings together two separate theories, namely Lyapunov exponents and the theory of large deviations." "Specifically, a linear differential system is considered which is controlled by a stochastic process that during a suitable noise-intensity-dependent time is trapped near one of its so-called metastable states. The local Lyapunov exponent is then introduced as the exponential growth rate of the linear system on this time scale. Unlike classical Lyapunov exponents, which involve a limit as time increases to infinity in a fixed system, here the system itself changes as the noise intensity converges, too."--Jacket
Harmonic analysis on spaces of homogeneous type by Dong-Gao Deng( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The authors succeed in generalizing the construction of wavelet bases to spaces of homogeneous type. However wavelet bases are replaced by frames, which in many applications serve the same purpose
Foundations of Grothendieck duality for diagrams of schemes by Joseph Lipman( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first part written by Joseph Lipman, accessible to mid-level graduate students, is a full exposition of the abstract foundations of Grothendieck duality theory for schemes (twisted inverse image, tor-independent base change ...), in part without noetherian hypotheses, and with some refinements for maps of finite tor-dimension. The ground is prepared by a lengthy treatment of the rich formalism of relations among the derived functors, for unbounded complexes over ringed spaces, of the sheaf functors tensor, hom, direct and inverse image. Included are enhancements, for quasi-compact quasi-separated schemes, of classical results such as the projection and Künneth isomorphisms. In the second part, written independently by Mitsuyasu Hashimoto, the theory is extended to the context of diagrams of schemes. This includes, as a special case, an equivariant theory for schemes with group actions. In particular, after various basic operations on sheaves such as (derived) direct images and inverse images are set up, Grothendieck duality and flat base change for diagrams of schemes are proved. Also, dualizing complexes are studied in this context. As an application to group actions, we generalize Watanabe's theorem on the Gorenstein property of invariant subrings
