Description : The conjugate operator method is a powerful recently developed technique for studying spectral properties of self-adjoint operators. One of the purposes of this volume is to present a refinement of the original method due to Mourre leading to essentially optimal results in situations as varied as ordinary differential operators, pseudo-differential operators and N-body Schrödinger hamiltonians. Another topic is a new algebraic framework for the N-body problem allowing a simple and systematic treatment of large classes of many-channel hamiltonians. The monograph will be of interest to research mathematicians and mathematical physicists. The authors have made efforts to produce an essentially self-contained text, which makes it accessible to advanced students. Thus about one third of the book is devoted to the development of tools from functional analysis, in particular real interpolation theory for Banach spaces and functional calculus and Besov spaces associated with multi-parameter C0-groups. Certainly this monograph (containing a bibliography of 170 items) is a well-written contribution to this field which is suitable to stimulate further evolution of the theory. (Mathematical Reviews)
Description : This volume contains the proceedings of the Conference on Spectral Theory and Partial Differential Equations, held from June 17-21, 2013, at the University of California, Los Angeles, California, in honor of James Ralston's 70th Birthday. Papers in this volume cover important topics in spectral theory and partial differential equations such as inverse problems, both analytical and algebraic; minimal partitions and Pleijel's Theorem; spectral theory for a model in Quantum Field Theory; and beams on Zoll manifolds.
Description : The intention of the international conference PDE2000 was to bring together specialists from different areas of modern analysis, mathematical physics and geometry, to discuss not only the recent progress in their own fields but also the interaction between these fields. The special topics of the conference were spectral and scattering theory, semiclassical and asymptotic analysis, pseudodifferential operators and their relation to geometry, as well as partial differential operators and their connection to stochastic analysis and to the theory of semigroups. The scientific advisory board of the conference in Clausthal consisted of M. Ben-Artzi (Jerusalem), Chen Hua (Peking), M. Demuth (Clausthal), T. Ichinose (Kanazawa), L. Rodino (Turin), B.-W. Schulze (Potsdam) and J. Sjöstrand (Paris). The book is aimed at researchers in mathematics and mathematical physics with interests in partial differential equations and all its related fields.
Description : This selection of outstanding articles – an outgrowth of the QMath9 meeting for young scientists – covers new techniques and recent results on spectral theory, statistical mechanics, Bose-Einstein condensation, random operators, magnetic Schrödinger operators and more. The book’s pedagogical style makes it a useful introduction to the research literature for postgraduate students. For more expert researchers it will serve as a concise source of modern reference.
Description : This second edition, significantly expanded and updated, presents new material taking into account some of the progress made in the field since 1980."--BOOK JACKET
Description : This volume highlights recent progress in the theory of regulators and secondary invariants, bringing together concepts, methods, and results from analysis, differential geometry, algebraic geometry, and number theory. A short historical and mathematical overview of the theory of regulators is presented followed by articles written and refered by experts in their respective fields. This is the first comprehesive book on regulators and will be a useful resource for a broad audience of graduate students and research mathematicians.
