Path Integrals and Quantum Anomalies (The International Series of Monographs on Physics)

The Feynman course integrals have gotten more and more very important within the functions of quantum mechanics and box thought. the trail crucial formula of quantum anomalies, (i. e. : the quantum breaking of yes symmetries), can now disguise the entire identified quantum anomalies in a coherent demeanour. during this ebook the authors supply an advent to the trail indispensable procedure in quantum box concept and its functions to the research of quantum anomalies.

Physical Problems Solved by the Phase-Integral Method

This booklet covers essentially the most effective approximation tools for the theoretical research and answer of difficulties in theoretical physics and utilized arithmetic. the tactic might be utilized to any box regarding moment order usual differential equations. it truly is written with functional wishes in brain, with 50 solved difficulties protecting a wide diversity of matters and making transparent which thoughts and result of the final conception are wanted in every one case.

Guided Waves in Structures for SHM: The Time-Domain Spectral Element Method

Figuring out and analysing the advanced phenomena on the topic of elastic wave propagation has been the topic of extreme study for a few years and has enabled software in several fields of know-how, together with structural health and wellbeing tracking (SHM). through the speedy development of diagnostic tools making use of elastic wave propagation, it has develop into transparent that present equipment of elastic wave modeling and research usually are not continually very helpful; constructing numerical tools geared toward modeling and analysing those phenomena has turn into a need.

16) 0 1/3 1/2 A standard way of performing highpass filtering is equivalent to an application of a first-order differential operator, which means (in the simplest scenario) just replacing each sample value by the difference between 12 Nonnegative Matrix and Tensor Factorizations the value at that point and the value at the preceding point. For example, a highpass filtering matrix can take following form (using the first order or second order discrete difference forms): ⎡ 1 −1 0 0 ⎤ ⎢ −1 2 −1 0⎥ ⎢ ⎥ ⎢ ⎥ −1 2 −1 ⎢ ⎥ ⎥ ∈ RT ×T .

10) subject to nonnegativity constraints A ≥ 0 and X ≥ 0 (component-wise) and an additional orthogonality constraint: AT A = IJ or XXT = IJ . Probably the simplest and most efficient way to impose orthogonality onto the matrix A or X is to perform the following transformation after each iteration A ← A AT A −1/2 , or X ← XXT −1/2 X. 5 Semi-NMF and Nonnegative Factorization of Arbitrary Matrix In some applications the observed input data are unsigned (unconstrained or bipolar) as indicated by Y = Y± ∈ RI×T which allows us to relax the constraints regarding nonnegativity of one factor (or only specific vectors of a matrix).

17). Two special subarrays have more compact representations: the j-th column of matrix A, a: j , may also be denoted as aj , whereas the q-th frontal slice of a third-order tensor, Y: : q may also be denoted as Yq , (q = 1, 2, . . , Q). 3 Unfolding – Matricization It is often very convenient to represent tensors as matrices or to represent multi-way relationships and a tensor decomposition in their matrix forms. Unfolding, also known as matricization or flattening, is a process of reordering the elements of an N-th order tensor into a matrix.
