ISBN-13: 9780521199308

This ebook presents an advent to (1) numerous zeta capabilities (for instance, Riemann, Hurwitz, Barnes, Epstein, Selberg, and Ruelle), together with graph zeta features; (2) modular types (Eisenstein sequence, Hecke and Dirichlet L-functions, Ramanujan's tau functionality, and cusp forms); and (3) vertex operator algebras (correlation features, quasimodular kinds, modular invariance, rationality, and a few present examine subject matters together with better genus conformal box theory). a number of concrete purposes of the fabric to physics are awarded. those contain Kaluza-Klein additional dimensional gravity, Bosonic string calculations, an summary Cardy formulation for black gap entropy, Patterson-Selberg zeta functionality expression of one-loop quantum box and gravity partition capabilities, Casimir strength calculations, atomic Schrödinger operators, Bose-Einstein condensation, warmth kernel asymptotics, random matrices, quantum chaos, elliptic and theta functionality options of Einstein's equations, a soliton-black gap connection in two-dimensional gravity, and conformal box idea.

Arithmetic for Physicists is a comparatively brief quantity overlaying all of the crucial arithmetic wanted for a standard first measure in physics, from a place to begin that's appropriate with sleek institution arithmetic syllabuses. Early chapters intentionally overlap with senior institution arithmetic, to a point that would depend upon the heritage of the person reader, who may possibly quick bypass over these subject matters with which she or he is already usual.
