9780125126601: Encyclopedia of Mathematical Physics

The Encyclopedia of Mathematical Physics provides a complete resource for researchers, students and lecturers with an interest in mathematical physics. It enables readers to access basic information on topics peripheral to their own areas, to provide a repository of the core information in the area that can be used to refresh the researcher’s own memory banks, and aid teachers in directing students to entries relevant to their course-work. The Encyclopedia does contain information that has been distilled, organised and presented as a complete reference tool to the user and a landmark to the body of knowledge that has accumulated in this domain. It also is a stimulus for new researchers working in mathematical physics or in areas using the methods originating from work in mathematical physics by providing them with focused high quality background information.

Jean-Pierre Françoise, Université Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris, France

About the Author:

Professor Françoise graduated in Mathematics and in Physics from Grenoble University, France in 1975. He is currently professor of Mathematics at the Université Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris and a member of the Laboratoire Jacques-Louis Lions after having held a position of chargé de recherches at CNRS. Professor Françoise regularly travels and lectures abroad. He spent one year at IMPA (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) in 1981 and one year at U.C. Berkeley in 1984. He was associate professor at University of Arizona, Tucson in 1987. Professor Françoise has delivered several series of lectures in Milan, in Rome, at the Banach Centre (Warsaw), at CRM (Montréal) and other institutes. He received the prize “du Fay from the Académie des Sciences de Paris in 1989. His scientific publications include over eighty articles published in international journals and contributions to several books. His scientific research activity focuses on small oscillations near equilibrium of Hamiltonian systems, singularity theory of functions and vector fields, normal forms and semi-classical analysis, integrable systems, bifurcation theory of dynamical systems, finiteness properties of singular projections of analytic sets, bursting oscillations, synchronization and phase locking of weakly coupled oscillators and isochronous systems.

Dr. Gregory L. Naber received all three of his degrees in Mathematics from Carnegie-Mellon University and has since held positions in Pennsylvania, California, Hong Kong and Tennessee. His areas of interest include differential topology and geometry and, most particularly, their interaction with mathematical physics. It is this interaction, and the desire to make it more widely known, appreciated and utilized in the mathematical community that has motivated nearly all of his published work, as well as his involvement with the Encyclopedia of Mathematical Physics.

Dr. Tsou Sheung Tsun obtained her B.Sc. in Hong Kong and her Doctorat esSciences in Geneva. She has held research fellowships at Wadham College, Oxford, and at the Mathematical Institute, Oxford, where she is now on the Faculty. Trained both as a mathematician and a physicist, Dr. Tsou has worked in gauge theory, string theory and particle physics. Recently she has concentrated on theoretical problems connected with the generation puzzle, neutrino oscillation and electric-magnetic duality. She is also active in the European Mathematical Society and European Women in Mathematics.
