By Susumu Ikeda, Motoko Kotani

This ebook is the 1st quantity of the SpringerBriefs within the arithmetic of fabrics and gives a entire consultant to the interplay of arithmetic with fabrics technological know-how. The anterior a part of the publication describes a specific heritage of fabrics technology in addition to the interplay among arithmetic and fabrics in historical past. The emergence of fabrics technology was once itself as a result of an interdisciplinary stream within the Fifties and Nineteen Sixties. fabrics technology used to be shaped by means of the mixing of metallurgy, polymer technological know-how, ceramics, strong kingdom physics, and comparable disciplines. We think that such old historical past is helping readers to appreciate the significance of interdisciplinary interplay reminiscent of mathematics–materials technology collaboration. 

The center a part of the publication describes mathematical rules and strategies that may be utilized to fabrics difficulties and introduces a few examples of particular studies―for instance, computational homology utilized to structural research of glassy fabrics, stochastic types for the formation technique of fabrics, new geometric measures for finite carbon nanotube molecules, mathematical method predicting a molecular magnet, and community research of nanoporous fabrics. the main points of those works should be proven within the next volumes of this SpringerBriefs within the arithmetic of fabrics sequence via the person authors. 
The posterior component to the publication provides how breakthroughs according to mathematics–materials technology collaborations can emerge. The authors' argument is supported by means of the reports on the complex Institute for fabrics examine (AIMR), the place many researchers from numerous fields collected and tackled interdisciplinary research.

Topology: A Geometric Approach

This new-in-paperback creation to topology emphasizes a geometrical procedure with a spotlight on surfaces. a chief function is a big number of workouts and initiatives, which fosters a instructing type that encourages the coed to be an lively type player. a variety of fabric at diversified degrees helps versatile use of the ebook for various scholars.

General Topology: Chapters 1–4

This can be the softcover reprint of the English translation of 1971 (available from Springer due to the fact that 1989) of the 1st four chapters of Bourbaki's Topologie générale. It offers the entire fundamentals of the topic, ranging from definitions. vital sessions of topological areas are studied, uniform buildings are brought and utilized to topological teams.

Hamiltonian Dynamics and Celestial Mechanics: A Joint Summer Research Conference on Hamiltonian Dynamics and Celestial Mechanics June 25-29, 1995 Seattle, Washington

This ebook includes chosen papers from the AMS-IMS-SIAM Joint summer time study convention on Hamiltonian platforms and Celestial Mechanics held in Seattle in June 1995.

The symbiotic dating of those themes creates a traditional mixture for a convention on dynamics. subject matters lined comprise twist maps, the Aubrey-Mather thought, Arnold diffusion, qualitative and topological experiences of structures, and variational tools, in addition to particular issues comparable to Melnikov's strategy and the singularity homes of specific systems.

As one of many few books that addresses either Hamiltonian platforms and celestial mechanics, this quantity deals emphasis on new matters and unsolved difficulties. a number of the papers provide new effects, but the editors purposely incorporated a few exploratory papers in line with numerical computations, a piece on unsolved difficulties, and papers that pose conjectures whereas constructing what's known.

Lu]) as shown in Fig. 11a. In contrast, if supersaturation/supercooling is large, the growth rate is large and the shape differs from the equilibrium shape. For example, natural pyrite crystals show various shapes depending on the grown environments (Fig. 11b). Under larger supersaturation/supercooling conditions, crystals tend to take up more impurities from their environments changing their physical and chemical characteristics considerably. We shall discuss topics related to crystal growth in several parts of this book because crystal growth is a key issue, which combines microscopic processes of materials and their macroscopic properties and features.
