Dealing with mechanics and the solving of mechanical problems with the help of pure mathematics, this A-Level text introduces at an early stage an appreciation of the properties of vectors. Throughout the book problems are solved using vector methods where appropriate, and many worked examples are provided to illustrate each main development of a topic. A set of straightforward problems follows each section, and a selection of more challenging questions appears in the miscellaneous exercises at the end of most chapters, with multiple-choice questions on most topics.

Quantum probability is a subtle blend of quantum mechanics and classical probability theory. Its important ideas can be traced to the pioneering work of Richard Feynman in his path integral formalism. Only recently have the concept and ideas of quantum probability been presented in a rigorous axiomatic framework, and this book provides a coherent and comprehensive exposition of this approach. It gives a unified treatment of operational statistics, generalized measure theory and the path integral formalism that can only be found in scattered research articles. The first two chapters survey the necessary background in quantum mechanics and probability theory and therefore the book is fairly self-contained, assuming only an elementary knowledge of linear operators in Hilbert space.

Studies in Mathematics and Mechanics is a collection of studies presented to Professor Richard von Mises as a token of reverence and appreciation on the occasion of his seventieth birthday which occurred on April 19, 1953. von Mises’ thought has been a stimulus in many seemingly unconnected fields of mathematics, science, and philosophy, to which he has contributed decisive results and new formulations of fundamental concepts. The book contains 42 chapters organized into five parts. Part I contains papers on algebra, number theory and geometry. These include a study of Poincaré’s representation of a hyperbolic space on an Euclidean half-space and elementary estimates for the least primitive root. Part II on analysis includes papers on a generalization of Green's Formula and its application to the Cauchy problem for a hyperbolic equation, and the fundamental solutions of a singular Beltrami operator. Part III deals with theoretical mechanics and covers topics such as turbulent flow, axially symmetric flow, and oscillating wakes. The papers in Part IV focus on applied mechanics. These include studies on plastic flow under high stresses and the problem of inelastic thermal stresses. Part V presents studies on probability and statistics, including a finite frequency theory of probability and the problem of expansion of clusters of galaxies.

A careful examination of the interaction between physics and finance. It takes a look at the 100-year-long history of co-operation between the two fields and goes on to provide new research results on capital markets - taken from the field of statistical physics. The random walk model, well known in physics, is one good example of where the two disciplines meet. In the world of finance it is the basic model upon which the Black-Scholes theory of option pricing and hedging has been built. The underlying assumptions are discussed using empirical financial data and analogies to physical models such as fluid flows, turbulence, or superdiffusion. On this basis, new theories of derivative pricing and risk control can be formulated.

Since the launch of the Human Genome project in 1990, understanding molecular and clinical genetics has become an essential aspect of modern medical education. Solid knowledge of genetics is now crucial to a host of healthcare professionals including primary care physicians, nurses and physician assistants. This third edition takes this crucial information and incorporates it into a student-friendly format that focuses on the core concept of human genetics. Each chapter uses the same problem-based approach as the previous editions, and addresses the important role of genetics and disease by integrating molecular and clinical genetics.

This elementary introduction to probability theory and information theory provides a clear and systematic foundation to the subject; the author pays particular attention to the concept of probability via a highly simplified discussion of measures on Boolean algebras. He then applies the theoretical ideas to practical areas such as statistical inference, random walks, statistical mechanics, and communications modeling. Applebaum deals with topics including discrete and continuous random variables, entropy and mutual information, maximum entropy methods, the central limit theorem, and the coding and transmission of information. The author includes many examples and exercises that illustrate how the theory can be applied, e.g. to information technology. Solutions are available by email. This book is suitable as a textbook for beginning students in mathematics, statistics, or computer science who have some knowledge of basic calculus.
