Quantum spaces : Poincaré Seminar 2007 by
Vincent Rivasseau(
Book
)
20 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book starts with an introduction by V. Pasquier on the usefulness of noncommutative geometry, especially in the condensed matter context of the Hall effect. This theme is further developed by A. Polychronakos, who together with L. Susskind introduced the concept of noncommutative fluids. JeanMichel Maillet compares the experimental results on one dimensional magnetic chains to the theoretical predictions based on the algebraic Bethe Ansatz and related to quantum group symmetries that he actively developed with many collaborators. On the high energy side of noncommutative geometry the book includes two complementary reviews. A. Connes describes the striking progress recently made in gathering all the interactions and fields of the standard model into a noncommutative geometry on a simple internal space, while V. Rivasseau describes in a large review the very recent technique of renormalization of quantum field theories on noncommutative spacetime, which lead to the surprising discovery of their improved shortdistance behavior

9 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Theoretical physics is a vast set of subjects, ideas and methods, with wide and unexpected applications to many interdisciplinary problems. But no general international conference had tried to review in depth this huge and burgeoning field since the Trieste conference in 1968. The International Conference on Theoretical Physics, TH2002, which took place at the Unesco building, Paris, from July 22 to 27, 2002, addressed this challenge. The reader will find in this book all invited and received contributions to the conference. After the general lectures of Nobel prize winners Anderson and Yang, the contributions by experts cover all aspects of modern theoretical physics ranging from particle physics, string theory, cosmology, statistical and condensed matter physics to dynamical systems and quantum chaos, the physics/biology interface, information theory and quantum computing

14 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This tenth volume in the Poincaré Seminar Series describes recent developments at one of the most challenging frontiers in statistical physics  the deeply related fields of glassy dynamics, especially near the glass transition, and of the statics and dynamics of granular systems. These fields are marked by a vigorous interchange between experiment, theory, and numerical studies, all of which are well represented by the leading experts who have contributed articles to this volume. These articles are also highly pedagogical, as befits their origin in lectures to a broad scientific audience.¡ Highlights include a Galilean dialogue on the mean field and competing theories of the glass transition, a wideranging survey of colloidal glasses, and experimental as well as theoretical treatments of the relatively new field of dense granular flows. This book should be of broad general interest to both physicists and mathematicians

15 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This thirteenth volume of the Poincaré Seminar Series, Henri Poincaré, 19122012, is published on the occasion of the centennial of the death of Henri Poincaré in 1912. It presents a scholarly approach to Poincaré's genius and creativity in mathematical physics and mathematics. Its five articles are also highly pedagogical, as befits their origin in lectures to a broad scientific audience. Highlights include g2sPoincaré's Lightg3s by Olivier Darrigol, a leading historian of science, who uses light as a guiding thread through much of Poincaré 's physics and philosophy, from the application of his superior mathematical skills and the theory of diffraction to his subsequent reflections on the foundations of electromagnetism and the electrodynamics of moving bodies; the authoritative g2sPoincaré and the ThreeBody Problemg3s by Alain Chenciner, who offers an exquisitely detailed, hundredpage perspective, peppered with vivid excerpts from citations, on the monumental work of Poincaré on this subject, from the famous (King Oscar's) 1889 memoir to the foundations of the modern theory of chaos in g2sLes méthodes nouvelles de la mécanique céleste.g3s A profoundly original and scholarly presentation of the work by Poincaré on probability theory is given by Laurent Mazliak in g2sPoincaré's Odds, g3s from the incidental first appearance of the word g2sprobabilityg3s in Poincaré's famous 1890 theorem of recurrence for dynamical systems, to his later acceptance of the unavoidability of probability calculus in Science, as developed to a great extent by Emile Borel, Poincaré's main direct disciple; the article by Francois Béguin, g2sHenri Poincaré and the Uniformization of Riemann Surfaces, g3s takes us on a fascinating journey through the six successive versions in twentysix years of the celebrated uniformization theorem, which exemplifies the Master's distinctive signature in the foundational fusion of mathematics and physics, on which conformal field theory, string theory and quantum gravity so much depend nowadays; the final chapter, g2sHarmony and Chaos, On the Figure of Henri Poincarég3s by the filmmaker Philippe Worms, describes the homonymous poetical film in which eminent scientists, through mathematical scenes and physical experiments, display their emotional relationship to the often elusive scientific truth and universal g2sharmony and chaosg3s in Poincaré's legacy.
