Probability theory : an introductory course by I︠A︡. G Sinaĭ( Book )

22 editions published between 1992 and 1997 in 4 languages and held by 372 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
SPDE in hydrodynamic[s] : recent progress and prospects : lectures given at the C.I.M.E. Summer School held in Cetraro, Italy August 29-September 3, 2005 by Sergio Albeverio( )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 363 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Of the three lecture courses making up the CIME summer school on Fluid Dynamics at Cetraro in 2005 reflected in this volume, the first, due to Sergio Albeverio describes deterministic and stochastic models of hydrodynamics. In the second course, Franco Flandoli starts from 3D Navier-Stokes equations and ends with turbulence. Finally,Yakov Sinai, in the 3rd course, describes some rigorous mathematical results for multidimensional Navier-Stokes systems and some recent results on the one-dimensional Burgers equation with random forcing
Theory of phase transitions : rigorous results by I︠A︡. G Sinaĭ( Book )

21 editions published between 1882 and 2014 in English and held by 350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Theory of Phase Transitions: Rigorous Results is inspired by lectures on mathematical problems of statistical physics presented in the Mathematical Institute of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, Budapest. The aim of the book is to expound a series of rigorous results about the theory of phase transitions. <br>The book consists of four chapters, wherein the first chapter discusses the Hamiltonian, its symmetry group, and the limit Gibbs distributions corresponding to a given Hamiltonian. The second chapter studies the phase diagrams of lattice models that are considered at low temperatures. Th
Dynamical systems, ergodic theory, and applications by L. A Bunimovich( Book )

10 editions published between 2000 and 2010 in English and held by 340 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."--Jacket
Classical nonintegrability, quantum chaos by A Knauf( Book )

14 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and German and held by 262 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
Russian mathematicians in the 20th century by I︠A︡. G Sinaĭ( Book )

21 editions published in 2003 in English and Multiple languages and held by 261 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the 20th century, many mathematicians in Russia made great contributions to the field of mathematics. This book, which presents the main achievements of Russian mathematics in that century, is the first most comprehensive book on Russian mathematicians. ... It presents differences in mathematial styles and focuses on Soviet mathematicians who often discussed "what to do" rather than "how to do it"."--Back cover
Dynamical systems : Ergodic theory with applications to dynamical systems and statistical mechanics by Bunimovich( Book )

31 editions published between 1985 and 1989 in English and German and held by 261 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Following the concept of the EMS series this volume sets out to familiarize the reader to the fundamental ideas and results of modern ergodic theory and to its applications to dynamical systems and statistical mechanics. The exposition starts from the basic of the subject, introducing ergodicity, mixing and entropy. Then the ergodic theory of smooth dynamical systems is presented - hyperbolic theory, billiards, one-dimensional systems and the elements of KAM theory. Numerous examples are presented carefully along with the ideas underlying the most important results. The last part of the book deals with the dynamical systems of statistical mechanics, and in particular with various kinetic equations. This book is compulsory reading for all mathematicians working in this field, or wanting to learn about it
Multicomponent random systems by R. L Dobrushin( Book )

9 editions published in 1980 in English and Italian and held by 202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book concerns areas of ergodic theory that are now being intensively developed. The topics include entropy theory (with emphasis on dynamical systems with multi-dimensional time), elements of the renormalization group method in the theory of dynamical systems, splitting of separatrices, and some problems related to the theory of hyperbolic dynamical systems. Originally published in 1993. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905
