Thermodynamic Formalism by David Ruelle

Book Description

Reissued in the Cambridge Mathematical Library this classic book outlines the theory of thermodynamic formalism which was developed to describe the properties of certain physical systems consisting of a large number of subunits. It is aimed at mathematicians interested in ergodic theory, topological dynamics, constructive quantum field theory, the study of certain differentiable dynamical systems, notably Anosov diffeomorphisms and flows. It is also of interest to theoretical physicists concerned with the conceptual basis of equilibrium statistical mechanics. The level of the presentation is generally advanced, the objective being to provide an efficient research tool and a text for use in graduate teaching. Background material on mathematics has been collected in appendices to help the reader. Extra material is given in the form of updates of problems that were open at the original time of writing and as a new preface specially written for this new edition by the author.

Mathematician's Brain by David Ruelle Mathematician's Brain, Hardback (July 2007)

British mathematician Alan Turing, credited with cracking the German Enigma code during World War II, he died in 1954 after eating a cyanide-laced apple - his death was ruled a suicide. This book reveals the author's personal reflections on Turing and other fellow mathematicians.

Chance and Chaos by David Ruelle Chance and Chaos, Paperback (April 1993)

How do scientists look at chance, or randomness, and chaos in physical systems? This book answers this question for a general audience.

Chaotic Evolution and Strange Attractors by David Ruelle Chaotic Evolution and Strange Attractors, Paperback (September 1989)

This book, based on lectures given in Rome in 1987, is an account of systems that display a chaotic time evolution. The evolution, though deterministic, has features more characteristic of stochastic systems. The analysis presented here is based on a technique known as time series analysis.
