Origin of the universe and quantum gravity a grass-root approach by B. L Hu ( )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Prof Bei-Lok Hu tells us the relation of quantum gravity, the most pressing unsolved issue of theoretical physics, and the origin of the universe, the ultimate mystery of Nature, and presents one unconventional yet most sensible approach to this theory, from the 'bottom-up', without making any assumption on an ultimate 'theory of everything'. This approach relies more on well-proven theories depicting today's low energy phenomena and large scale structure of spacetime, matched by cosmological observations and experimental data. It begins with General Relativity and Quantum Field Theory, and goes beyond to semiclassical and stochastic gravity, aided by ideas and techniques from nonequilibrium statistical mechanics, fluctuation phenomena, quantum noise and stochastic processes

Leptin and the biologic basis of obesity homeostatic control of body weight, the cloning of the ob gene and the identification of leptin, clinical implications by Jeffrey Friedman ( )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Recessive mutations in the leptin gene are associated with massive obesity in mice and some humans. Treatment with recombinant leptin markedly reduces food intake and body weight. The low leptin levels in patients with leptin mutations are also associated with multiple abnormalities including infertility, diabetes and immune abnormalities all of which are corrected by leptin treatment. These findings have established important links between energy stores and many other physiologic systems and led to the use of leptin as a treatment for an increasing number of other human conditions including a subset of obesity, some forms of diabetes including lipodystrophy and hypothalamic amennorhea, the cessation of menstruation seen in extremely thin women. Identification of a physiologic system that controls energy balance establishes a biologic basis for obesity and further establishes links between leptin and numerous other physiologic responses

Pseudo-randomness and arithmetic combinatorics by Jean Bourgain ( )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
How to produce a process that looks like an unbiased coin flipping? This is clearly a question of multi-disciplinary importance. Without access to 'true randomness', relying on algebraic constructions is a common substitute. Even simple algebraic processes may offer indeed a great deal of complexity and are expected to display various randomness features.' In the lecture Prof Bourgain discusses some new developments in the underlying mathematics that explain some of these phenomena
