Mathematical events of the twentieth century by A. A Bolibrukh ( )
19 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in English and held by 572 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book contains several contributions on the most outstanding events in the development of twentieth century mathematics, representing a wide variety of specialities in which Russian and Soviet mathematicians played a considerable role. The articles are written in an informal style, from mathematical philosophy to the description of the development of ideas, personal memories and give a unique account of personal meetings with famous representatives of twentieth century mathematics who exerted great influence in its development. This book will be of great interest to mathematicians, who will enjoy seeing their own specialities described with some historical perspective. Historians will read it with the same motive, and perhaps also to select topics for future investigation
Theory of probability and random processes by Leonid B Koralov ( )
23 editions published between 2007 and 2012 in English and held by 557 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"A one-year course in probability theory and the theory of random processes, taught at Princeton University to undergraduate and graduate students, forms the core of the content of this book. This material is essential to many undergraduate and graduate courses. The book can also serve as a reference for scientists using modern probability theory in their research."--Jacket

Probability theory : an introductory course by I︠A︡. G Sinaĭ ( Book )
10 editions published between 1992 and 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Sinai's book leads the student through the standard material for ProbabilityTheory, with stops along the way for interesting topics such as statistical mechanics, not usually included in a book for beginners. The first part of the book covers discrete random variables, using the same approach, basedon Kolmogorov's axioms for probability, used later for the general case. The text is divided into sixteen lectures, each covering a major topic. The introductory notions and classical results are included, of course: random variables, the central limit theorem, the law of large numbers, conditional probability, random walks, etc. Sinai's style is accessible and clear, with interesting examples to accompany new ideas. Besides statistical mechanics, other interesting, less common topics found in the book are: percolation, the concept of stability in the central limit theorem and the study of probability of large deviations. Little more than a standard undergraduate course in analysis is assumed of the reader. Notions from measure theory and Lebesgue integration are introduced in the second half of the text. The book is suitable for second or third year students in mathematics, physics or other natural sciences. It could also be usedby more advanced readers who want to learn the mathematics of probability theory and some of its applications in statistical physics
Dynamical systems, ergodic theory, and applications by I︠A︡. G Sinaĭ ( Book )
10 editions published between 2000 and 2010 in English and held by 287 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This EMS volume, the first edition of which was published as Dynamical Systems II, EMS 2, sets out to familiarize the reader to the fundamental ideas and results of modern ergodic theory and its applications to dynamical systems and statistical mechanics. The exposition starts from the basic of the subject, introducing ergodicity, mixing and entropy. The ergodic theory of smooth dynamical systems is treated. Numerous examples are presented carefully along with the ideas underlying the most important results. Moreover, the book deals with the dynamical systems of statistical mechanics, and with various kinetic equations."--BOOK JACKET

Russian mathematicians in the 20th century ( Book )
11 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In the 20th century, many mathematicians in Russia made great contributions to the field of mathematics. This invaluable book, which presents the main achievements of Russian mathematicians in that century, is the first most comprehensive book on Russian mathematicians. It has been produced as a gesture of respect and appreciation for those mathematicians and it will serve as a good reference and an inspiration for future mathematicians. It presents differences in mathematical styles and focuses on Soviet mathematicians who often discussed "what to do" rather than "how to do it". Thus, the book will be valued beyond historical documentation. The editor, Professor Yakov Sinai, a distinguished Russian mathematician, has taken pains to select leading Russian mathematicians -- such as Lyapunov, Luzin, Egorov, Kolmogorov, Pontryagin, Vinogradov, Sobolev, Petrovski and Krein -- and their most important works. One can, for example, find works of Lyapunov, which parallel those of Poincare; and works of Luzin, whose analysis plays a very important role in the history of Russian mathematics; Kolmogorov has established the foundations of probability based on analysis. The editor has tried to provide some parity and, at the same time, included papers that are of interest even today. The original works of the great mathematicians will prove to be enjoyable to readers and useful to the many researchers who are preserving the interest in how mathematics was done in the former Soviet Union
Classical nonintegrability, quantum chaos by A Knauf ( Book )
11 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and held by 200 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book includes several lectures given at the DMV Seminar "Classical Nonintegrability, Quantum Chaos". The aim of these lectures was to provide an introduction to the ideas and mathematical techniques of classical and quantum nonlinear dynamics. The lecture by Viviane Baladi gives a much-needed overview of the current literature and includes an informal discussion of the pertinent problems and results. The chapters on irregular scattering and on expanding maps illustrate techniques in nonlinear dynamics using the simplest nontrivial examples. The chapters on quantum chaos and on Liouville surfaces stress a phase space geometry approach to semi-classical quantum theory. These lectures may serve as a basis for graduate seminars in mathematics and physics

Dynamical systems by D. V Anosov ( Book )
1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The book deals with smooth dynamical systems with hyperbolic behaviour of trajectories filling out "large subsets" of the phase space. Such systems lead to complicated motion (so-called "chaos"). The book begins with a discussion of the topological manifestations of uniform and total hyperbolicity: hyperbolic sets, Smale's Axiom A, structurally stable systems, Anosov systems, and hyperbolic attractors of dimension or codimension one. There are various modifications of hyperbolicity and in this connection the properties of Lorenz attractors, pseudo-analytic Thurston diffeomorphisms, and homogeneous flows with expanding and contracting foliations are investigated. These last two questions are discussed in the general context of the theory of homeomorphisms of surfaces and of homogeneous flows
