From Atoms to Higgs Bosons: Voyages in Quasi-Spacetime

1st Edition

Chary Rangacharyulu, Christopher J. A. Polachic
June 07, 2019

The announcement in 2012 that the Higgs boson had been discovered was understood as a watershed moment for the Standard Model of particle physics. It was deemed a triumphant event in the reductionist quest that had begun centuries ago with the ancient Greek natural philosophers. Physicists basked...

Engineering Applications of Noncommutative Harmonic Analysis: With Emphasis on Rotation and Motion Groups

1st Edition

Gregory S. Chirikjian, Alexander B. Kyatkin
June 06, 2019

First published in 2001. The classical Fourier transform is one of the most widely used mathematical tools in engineering. However, few engineers know that extensions of harmonic analysis to functions on groups holds great potential for solving problems in robotics, image analysis, mechanics, and...
