The contents of this book stems from three different objectives. First, it is an introduction to the basic principles and techniques of Landau’s theory, which is intended for teaching purposes. A second purpose of the book provides the practical methods for applying Landau’s theory to complex systems. The last objective of the book is to incorporate the developments which have arisen in the last fifteen years from the extensive application of the theory to a variety of physical systems.

The book contains the contributions to the conference on "Partial Differential Equations" held in Holzhau (Germany) in July 1994, where outstanding specialists from analysis, geometry and mathematical physics reviewed recent progress and new interactions in these areas. Topics of special interest at the conference and which now form the core of this volume are hyperbolic operators, spectral theory for elliptic operators, eta-invariant, singular configura- tions and asymptotics, Bergman-kernel, attractors of non-autonomous evolution equations, pseudo-differential boundary value problems, Mellin

The functional perspective on language which underlies the contributions to this volume calls for abandoning the "isolationist" approach which has characterized much of 20th-century linguistics and for a return to an integrated approach. This edition seeks to re-establish a link between language and the world, reconnect language to the context in which it has evolved and in which it functions, and to re-establish a link between the strata of language. The contributors aim to demonstrate the non-autonomous nature of morphology, syntax and the lexicon, and the inadequacy of linguistic models whi

This book provides a survey of linear programming in semi-infinite and infinite-dimensional spaces. It includes a treatment of duality theory and of the fundamental theory of simplex-like algorithms for linear programs posed over vector spaces which may be infinite-dimensional. However, more than half the book is devoted to a detailed investigation of various types of infinite-dimensional linear program which occur, for example, in approximation theory, optimal control theory, dynamic networks, mass transfer problems and structural design. The approach is inductive; specific problems and algor

This collection of essays, derived from an international workshop, explores the significance of implicit understandings and tacit expectations of the parties to different kinds of contractual agreements, ranging from simple discrete transactions to long-term associational agreements such as those formed in companies. An interdisciplinary and comparative approach is used to investigate how the law comprehends and gives effect to these implicit dimensions of contracts. The significance of this enquiry is found not only in relation to the interpretation of contracts in many different contexts, bu

Digital signal transforms are of a fundamental value in digital signal and image processing. Their role is manifold. Transforms selected appropriately enable substantial compressing signals and images for storage and transmission. No signal recovery, image reconstruction and restoration task can be efficiently solved without using digital signal transforms. Transforms are successfully used for logic design and digital data encryption. Fast transforms are the main tools for acceleration of computations in digital signal and image processing. The volume collects in one book most recent developm
