Physics of Molecular and Cellular Processes (Graduate Texts in Physics)


English | 2022 | ISBN: 3030986055 | 265 pages | True PDF EPUB | 40.43 MB
This is a graduate-level introduction to quantitative concepts and methods in the science of living systems. It relies on a systems approach for understanding the physical principles operating in biology. Physical phenomena are treated at the appropriate spatio-temporal scale and phenomenological equations are used in order to reflect the system of interest. Biological details enter to the degree necessary for understanding specific processes, but in many cases the approach is not reductionist. This is in line with the approach taken by physics to many other complex systems.

Design Commons Practices, Processes and Crossovers


Design Commons: Practices, Processes and Crossovers by Gerhard Bruyns, Stavros Kousoulas
English | EPUB | 2022 | 291 Pages | ISBN : 3030950565 | 21.4 MB
This book directly links the notion of the commons with different design praxes, and explores their social, cultural, and ecological ramifications. It draws out material conditions in four areas of design interest: social design, commons and culture, ecology and transdisciplinary design. As a collection of positions, the diversity of arguments advances the understanding of the commons as both concepts and modes of thinking, and their material translation when contextualised in the domain of design questions. In other words, it moves abstract social science concepts towards concrete design debates. This text appeals to students, researchers and practitioners working on design in architecture, architecture theory, urbanism, and ecology.

Continuous Time Processes for Finance


Continuous Time Processes for Finance: Switching, Self-exciting, Fractional and other Recent Dynamics
English | 2022 | ISBN: 3031063600 | 358 Pages | PDF EPUB (True) | 43 MB
This book explores recent topics in quantitative finance with an emphasis on applications and calibration to time-series. This last aspect is often neglected in the existing mathematical finance literature while it is crucial for risk management. The first part of this book focuses on switching regime processes that allow to model economic cycles in financial markets. After a presentation of their mathematical features and applications to stocks and interest rates, the estimation with the Hamilton filter and Markov Chain Monte-Carlo algorithm (MCMC) is detailed. A second part focuses on self-excited processes for modeling the clustering of shocks in financial markets. These processes recently receive a lot of attention from researchers and we focus here on its econometric estimation and its simulation. A chapter is dedicated to estimation of stochastic volatility models. Two chapters are dedicated to the fractional Brownian motion and Gaussian fields. After a summary of their features, we present applications for stock and interest rate modeling. Two chapters focuses on sub-diffusions that allows to replicate illiquidity in financial markets. This book targets undergraduate students who have followed a first course of stochastic finance and practitioners as quantitative analyst or actuaries working in risk management.

Exoplanet Atmospheres Physical Processes


Sara Seager, "Exoplanet Atmospheres: Physical Processes"
English | 2010 | pages: 264 | ISBN: 0691146454, 0691119147 | EPUB | 7,7 mb
Over the past twenty years, astronomers have identified hundreds of extrasolar planets-planets orbiting stars other than the sun. Recent research in this burgeoning field has made it possible to observe and measure the atmospheres of these exoplanets. This is the first textbook to describe the basic physical processes-including radiative transfer, molecular absorption, and chemical processes-common to all planetary atmospheres, as well as the transit, eclipse, and thermal phase variation observations that are unique to exoplanets.
