Das Märchen vom Elfenbeinernen Turm : Reden und Aufsätze by Res Jost

By Res Jost

Dieses "Märchen" und die anderen hier gesammelten Vorträge richten sich bewußt an ein breites Publikum im Umkreis des "Elfenbeinernen Turmes": Studierende, Dozenten, Physiker, Mathematiker, Wissenschaftshistoriker, aber auch Bildungspolitiker. Personifiziert durch große Gestalten, wie Faraday, Gauss, Boltzmann, Planck und Einstein, werden entscheidende Einflüsse in der Geschichte und Gegenwart der modernen Naturwissenschaft dargestellt. Mit historischen, kulturellen und ethischen Aspekten seiner Wissenschaft hat sich der theoretische Physiker Res Jost (1918-1990) in den letzten zwei Jahrzehnten seines Wirkens an der ETH Zürich ebenso intensiv auseinandergesetzt wie vorher etwa mit den mathematischen Grundlagen der Quantenfeldtheorie.

Granular Gases

"Granular Gases" are diluted many-particle structures during which the suggest unfastened direction of the debris is way better than the common particle dimension, and the place particle collisions take place dissipatively. The dissipation of kinetic strength may end up in results akin to the formation of clusters, anomalous diffusion and attribute surprise waves to call yet a number of.

Sample text

A brief introduction to distributions is given in Appendix C. 37) to distributions one must define the convolution of two distributions. To do so one multiplies Eq. 38) on both sides with a smooth test function ϕ ∈ Cc∞ (R ) of compact support. 52) where the notation f (y), ϕ( x + y) means that the functional F f is applied to the function ϕ( x + ·) for fixed x. 2 Mathematical Introduction to Fractional Derivatives where ϕ x (·) = ϕ( x + ·). 52) can be used as a definition for the convolution of distributions provided that the right-hand side has meaning.

2001 – (see [6]) which I found wonderful, by their content and the clarity of the exposition. I regretted strongly that I did not know them before the completion of my latest book. I should greatly appreciate your sending me your latest works in this area. I am attaching a text containing my latest work in this domain. It is a “long version”, not intended for publication as such. It contains many details (it was the basis of some seminars I delivered here). I should sincerely appreciate your having a look at it and letting me know your comments and suggestions.
