Seminar on Fermat's last theorem : 1993-1994, the Fields Institute for Research in Mathematical Sciences, Toronto, Ontario, Canada by Toronto) Seminar on Fermat's Last Theorem (1993 - 1994( Book )

5 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The most significant recent development in number theory is the work of Andrew Wiles on modular elliptic curves. Besides implying Fermat's Last Theorem, his work establishes a new reciprocity law. Reciprocity laws lie at the heart of number theory. Wiles' work draws on many of the tools of modern number theory and the purpose of this volume is to introduce readers to some of this background material. Based on a seminar held during 1993-1994 at the Fields Institute for Research in Mathematical Sciences, this book contains articles on elliptic curves, modular forms and modular curves, Serre's conjectures, Ribet's theorem, deformations of Galois representations, Euler systems, and annihilators of Selmer groups. All of the authors are well known in their field and have made significant contributions to the general area of elliptic curves, Galois representations, and modular forms

Control of flexible structures by Identification and Control of Flexible Structures Workshop in Sensing( Book )

5 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Flexible structures arise in significant important areas of application, such as robotics, large space structures, and antenna control. Difficulties related to sensing and identification hamper control of such systems. These problems require collaboration between mathematicians and engineers. To promote such collaboration, the Fields Institute sponsored a three-day workshop entitled "Problems in Sensing, Identification and Control of Flexible Structures" in June 1992. This volume contains papers presented at the workshop. Topics range from theoretical research on the well-posedness of systems, to experimental implementations of various controllers. A number of controller design techniques are discussed and compared, and there are several papers on modelling the complex dynamics of flexible structures. This book is a useful resource to control theorists, engineers, and mathematicians interested in this important field of research

Uniform spaces and measures by Jan Pachl( Book )

5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Uniform measures are functionals on the space of bounded uniformly continuous functions on a uniform space. They are a common generalization of several classes of measures and measure-like functionals studied in topological measure theory, probability theory, and abstract harmonic analysis. They offer a natural framework for results about topologies on spaces of measures and about the continuity of convolution of measures on topological groups and semitopological semigroups

Lecture notes on O-minimal structures and real analytic geometry by Chris Miller( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume was produced in conjunction with the Thematic Program in o-Minimal Structures and Real Analytic Geometry, held from January to June of 2009 at the Fields Institute. Five of the six contributions consist of notes from graduate courses associated with the program: Felipe Cano on a new proof of resolution of singularities for planar analytic vector fields; Chris Miller on o-minimality and Hardy fields; Jean-Philippe Rolin on the construction of o-minimal structures from quasianalytic classes; Fernando Sanz on non-oscillatory trajectories of vector fields; and Patrick Speissegger on pfaffian sets. The sixth contribution, by Antongiulio Fornasiero and Tamara Servi, is an adaptation to the nonstandard setting of A.J. Wilkie's construction of o-minimal structures from infinitely differentiable functions. Most of this material is either unavailable elsewhere or spread across many different sources such as research papers, conference proceedings and PhD theses. This book will be a useful tool for graduate students or researchers from related fields who want to learn about expansions of o-minimal structures by solutions, or images thereof, of definable systems of differential equations
Arithmetic and geometry of K3 surfaces and Calabi-Yau threefolds by Radu Laza( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Arising from a 2011 workshop at the Fields Institute, this book reviews Arithmetic and Geometry of K3 surfaces and Calabi-Yau threefolds. Offers lectures and papers on arithmetic and algebraic geometry, differential geometry, mathematical physics and more
Blaschke products and their applications proceedings based on the presentations at the conference, Toronto, Canada, July 25-29, 2011 by Javad Mashreghi( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Blaschke products have been researched for nearly a century. They have shown to be important in several branches of mathematics through their boundary behaviour, dynamics, membership in different function spaces, and the asymptotic growth of various integral means of their derivatives. This volume presents a collection of survey and research articles that examine Blaschke products and several of their applications to fields such as approximation theory, differential equations, dynamical systems, and harmonic analysis. Additionally, it illustrates the historical roots of Blaschke products and highlights key research on this topic. The contributions, written by experts from various fields of mathematical research, include several open problems. They will engage graduate students and researchers alike, bringing them to the forefront of research in the subject."--Publisher's website
Asymptotic laws and methods in stochastics : a volume in honour of Miklós Csörgö by Donald A Dawson( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book contains articles arising from a conference in honour of mathematician-statistician Mikl{u1F79}s Csörgő on the occasion of his 80th birthday, held in Ottawa in July 2012. It comprises research papers and overview articles, which provide a substantial glimpse of the history and state-of-the-art of the field of asymptotic methods in probability and statistics, written by leading experts. The volume consists of twenty articles on topics on limit theorems for self-normalized processes, planar processes, the central limit theorem and laws of large numbers, change-point problems, short and long range dependent¡time series, applied probability and stochastic processes, and the theory and methods of statistics. It also includes Csörgő{u2019}s list of publications during more than 50 years, since 1962

Free probability theory( Book )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Free probability theory is a highly noncommutative probability theory, with independence based on free products instead of tensor products. The theory models random matrices in the large N limit and operator algebra free products. It has led to a surge of new results on the von Neumann algebras of free groups. This is a volume of papers from a workshop on Random Matrices and Operator Algebra Free Products, held at The Fields Institute for Research in the Mathematical Sciences in March 1995. Over the last few years, there has been much progress on the operator algebra and noncommutative probability sides of the subject. New links with the physics of masterfields and the combinatorics of noncrossing partitions have emerged. Moreover there is a growing free entropy theory. The idea of this workshop was to bring together people working in all these directions and from an even broader free products area where future developments might lead
Turbulent times in mathematics : the life of J.C. Fields and the history of the Fields medal by Elaine McKinnon Riehm( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Despite the renown of the Fields Medals, J.C. Fields has been until now a rather obscure figure, and recovering details about his professional activities and personal life was not at all a simple task. This work is a triumph of persistence with far-flung archival and documentary sources, and provides a rich non-mathematical portrait of the man in all aspects of his life and career. Highly readable and replete with period detail, the book sheds useful light on the mathematical and scientific world of Fields' time, and is sure to remain the definitive biographical study. -Tom Archibald, Simon Fr
