The Grothendieck Festschrift : a collection of articles written in honor of the 60th birthday of Alexander Grothendieck by P Cartier( Book )

101 editions published between 1990 and 2007 in 5 languages and held by 478 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The many diverse articles presented in these three volumes, collected on the occasion of Alexander Grothendieck's sixtieth birthday and originally published in 1990, were offered as a tribute to one of the world's greatest living mathematicians. Grothendieck changed the very way we think about many branches of mathematics. Many of his ideas, revolutionary when introduced, now seem so natural as to have been inevitable. Indeed, it is difficult to fully grasp the influence his vast contributions to modern mathematics have subsequently had on new generations of mathematicians. Many of the groundbreaking contributions in these volumes contain material that is now considered foundational to the subject. Topics addressed by these top-notch contributors match the breadth of Grothendieck's own interests, including: functional analysis, algebraic geometry, algebraic topology, number theory, representation theory, K-theory, category theory, and homological algebra.

From number theory to physics by Michel Waldschmidt( Book )

15 editions published between 1992 and 2010 in English and German and held by 319 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Various developments in physics have involved many questions related to number theory, in an increasingly direct way. This trend is especially visible in two broad families of problems, namely, field theories, and dynamical systems and chaos. The 14 chapters of this book are extended, self-contained versions of expository lecture courses given at a school on "Number Theory and Physics" held at Les Houches for mathematicians and physicists. Most go as far as recent developments in the field. Some adapt an original pedagogical viewpoint

Integrable systems : the Verdier Memorial Conference : actes du colloque international de Luminy by Olivier Babelon( Book )

13 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book constitutes the proceedings of the International Conference on Integrable Systems in memory of J.-L. Verdier. It was held on July 1-5, 1991 at the Centre International de Recherches Mathematiques (C.I.R.M.) at Luminy, near Marseille (France). This collection of articles, covering many aspects of the theory of integrable Hamiltonian systems, both finite and infinite-dimensional, with an emphasis on the algebro-geometric meth ods, is published here as a tribute to Verdier who had planned this confer ence before his death in 1989 and whose active involvement with this topic brought integrable systems to the fore as a subject for active research in France. The death of Verdier and his wife on August 25, 1989, in a car accident near their country house, was a shock to all of us who were acquainted with them, and was very deeply felt in the mathematics community. We knew of no better way to honor Verdier's memory than to proceed with both the School on Integrable Systems at the C.I.M.P.A. (Centre International de Mathematiques Pures et Appliquees in Nice), and the Conference on the same theme that was to follow it, as he himself had planned them

Functional integration : basics and applications by Cécile DeWitt-Morette( Book )

7 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The program of the Institute covered several aspects of functional integration -from a robust mathematical foundation to many applications, heuristic and rigorous, in mathematics, physics, and chemistry. It included analytic and numerical computational techniques. One of the goals was to encourage cross-fertilization between these various aspects and disciplines. The first week was focused on quantum and classical systems with a finite number of degrees of freedom; the second week on field theories. During the first week the basic course, given by P. Cartier, was a presentation of a recent rigorous approach to functional integration which does not resort to discretization, nor to analytic continuation. It provides a definition of functional integrals simpler and more powerful than the original ones. Could this approach accommodate the works presented by the other lecturers? Although much remains to be done before answering "Yes," there seems to be no major obstacle along the road. The other courses taught during the first week presented: a) a solid introduction to functional numerical techniques (A. Sokal) and their applications to functional integrals encountered in chemistry (N. Makri). b) integrals based on Poisson processes and their applications to wave propagation (S.K. Foong), in particular a wave-restorer or wave-designer algorithm yielding the initial wave profile when one can only observe its distortion through a dissipative medium. c) the formulation of a quantum equivalence principle (H. Kleinert) which. given the flat space theory, yields a well-defined quantum theory in spaces with curvature and torsion

Classification des groupes algébriques semi-simples / The classification of semi-simple algebraic groups by C Chevalley( Book )

20 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in French and English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The third volume of the Collected Works of Claude Chevalley assembles his work on semi-simple algebraic groups contained, for the most part, in the notes of the famous "Sminaire Chevalley" held at the Ecole Normale Suprieure in Paris between 1956 and 1958 and written up by participants of the seminar namely, P. Cartier, A. Grothendieck, R. Lazard and J.L. Verdier. These texts have been entirely reset in TeX for this edition, and edited and annotated by Pierre Cartier. Almost 50 years after the original writing, these texts still constitute a choice reference from which to enter and

The relation between Mathematics and Physics has a long history. Let us mentiononlyordinarydi?erentialequationsandmechanics,partialdi?erential equations in solid and ?uid mechanics or electrodynamics, group theory is essential in crystallography, elasticity or quantum mechanics... The role of number theory and of more abstract parts of mathematics such as topological, di?erential and algebraic geometry in physics has become prominent more recently. Diverse instances of this trend appear in the works of such scientists as V. Arnold, M. Atiyah, M. Berry, F. Dyson, L. Faddeev, D. Hejhal, C. Itzykson, V. Kac, Y. Manin, J. Moser, W. Nahm, A. Polyakov, D. Ruelle, A. Selberg, C. Siegel, S. Smale, E. Witten and many others. In 1989 a ?rst meeting took place at the Centre de Physique des Houches. The triggering idea was due at that time to the late Claude Itzykson (1938- 1995). The meeting gathered physicists and mathematicians, and was the occasion of long and passionate discussions." -- Font no determinada

Freedom in mathematics by P Cartier( Book )

7 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book challenges the views put forward by Pierre Cartier, one of the anchors of the famous Bourbaki group, and Cédric Villani, one of the most brilliant mathematicians of his generation, who received the Fields Medal in 2010. Jean Dhombres, mathematician and science historian, and Gerhard Heinzmann, philosopher of science and also a specialist in mathematics engage in a fruitful dialogue with the two mathematicians, prompting readers to reflect on mathematical activity and its social consequences in history as well as in the modern world. Cédric Villani's popular success proves once again that a common awareness has developed, albeit in a very confused way, of the major role of mathematics in the construction and efficiency of natural sciences, which are at the origin of our technologies. Despite this, the idea that mathematics cannot be shared remains firmly entrenched, a perceived failing that has even been branded a lack of culture by vocal forces in the media as well as cultural and political establishment. The authors explore three major directions in their dialogue: the highly complex relationship between mathematics and reality, the subject of many debates and opposing viewpoints; the freedom that the construction of mathematics has given humankind by enabling them to develop the natural sciences as well as mathematical research; and the responsibility with which the scientific community and governments should address the role of mathematics in research and education policies
