In this book we will be considering one of the most obvious situations in which the e_ects of the non-linearity of Einstein�s equations will be manifest. We will be considering the interaction between two waves. By restricting our attention to somewhat idealized situations, it will be possible to describe some types of wave interaction in terms of exact solutions. Moreover, these solutions have a clear physical interpretation in terms of combinations of gravitational or electromagnetic waves...

Chapter I presents all the elementary Hilbert space theory that is needed for the book. Chapter II is an introduction to distributions and Sobolev spaces. Chapter III is an exposition of the theory of linear elliptic boundary value problems in variational form. (The meaning of \variational form" is explained in Chapter VII.). Chapter IV is an exposition of the generation theory of linear semigroups of contractions and its applications to solve initial-boundary value problems for partial...

When nonlinearities are "small" there are various ways one can exploit this fact - and the fact that the linearized problem can be solved exactly - to produce useful approximations to the solutions. We illustrate two of these techniques here, with examples from phase plane analysis: The Poincare-Lindstedt method and the (more exible) Two Timing method. This second method is a particular case of the Multiple Scales approximation technique, which is useful whenever the solution of a...

These are the lecture notes of a set of lectures delivered at the 1995 Trieste summer school in June. I review some recent work on duality in four dimensional Maxwell theory on arbitrary four manifolds, as well as a new set of topological invariants known as the Seiberg-Witten invariants. Much of the necessary background material is given, including a crash course in topological �eld theory, cohomology of manifolds, topological gauge theory and the rudiments of four manifold theory.

You have all presumably taken the standard undergraduate electromagnetism course in which Maxwell�s equations are derived and explained. The basic aim of my course is to cover some material which is usually inadequately treated or omitted altogether in undergraduate courses. In fact, I intend to concentrate on three main topics:1. The relativistically invariant formulation of the laws of electromagnetism. 2. The e_ect of dielectric and magnetic materials on electric and magnetic�elds. 3....

The purpose of these notes is to give some examples illustrating how naive numerical approximations to PDE's may not work at all as expected. In addition, the following two important notions are introduced: (I) von Neumann stability analysis - helps identify when (and if ) numerical schemes behave properly. (II) Artificial viscosity - a tool in stabilizing numerical schemes. These notes should be read in conjunction with the use of the MatLab scripts (in the Athena 18311-Toolkit at MIT) whose...

This model is the one solved by a set of MatLab scripts in the Athena 18311-Toolkit at MIT, which illustrate the phenomena described here. These are the scripts whose names end with the acronym CFSM.

In two dimensions a Hopf bifurcation occurs as a Spiral Point switches from stable to unstable (or vice versa) and a periodic solution appears. There are, however, more details to the story than this: The fact that a critical point switches from stable to unstable spiral (or vice versa) alone does not guarantee that a periodic solution will arise, though one almost always does. Here we will explore these questions in some detail, using the method of multiple scales to find precise conditions...

Derivation of Paraxial Wave Equations: In point-to-point communication, we may think of the electromagnetic field as propagatingin a kind of "searchlight" mode -- i.e. a beam of finite width that propagates in some particular direction. In analyzing this mode of wave propagation, we make use of an important solution to the so call paraxial approximation of the electromagnetic wave equation (or, more precisely, the paraxial approximation of the Helmholz equation).

This emphasis comes about because the interaction of such systems with the electromagnetic field may be treated in great detail to obtain valuable analytic results and, hopefully, the analysis of two-level systems generates insights that may be extended to more realistic situations. ...

This course introduces the basic notions of probability theory and develops them to the stage where one can begin to use probabilistic ideas in statistical inference and modelling, and the study of stochastic processes. Probability axioms. Conditional probability and independence. Discrete random variables and their distributions. Continuous distributions. Joint distributions. Independence. Expectations. Mean, variance, covariance, correlation. Limiting distributions

Our objective here is to formulate a general approach to the subject of wave propagation in anisotropic dielectrics which makes use of ideas familiar from other branches of mathematical physics -- viz. the �eigenvalue problem.�.18 For reasons that will soon become abundantly clear, treatments of �crystal optics� focus on the behavior of the dielectric displacement vector, r D (r r , _) rather than on the electric field vector.19 For non-magnetic dielectrics the components of the...

In this lecture we will talk about di_erent kinds of Non-deterministic Turing Machines (NTM) and then how to construct Alternating Turing Machines from them. We�ll also examine the relation of ATMs to deterministic classes, then we will prove a few di_erent relations between alternating and deterministic time and space

The course begins with an outline of complexity theory, which gives a more precise meaning to the statement that some problems (such as minimal spanning tree) are easy to solve whereas others (such as travelling salesman) are hard.

This notes give a few examples illustrating how continuum models can be derived from special limits of discrete models. Only the simplest cases are considered, illustrating some of the most basic ideas. These techniques are useful because continuum models are often much easier to deal with than discrete models with very many variables, both conceptually and computationally.

These notes give examples illustrating how conservation principles are used to obtain (phenomenological) continuum models for physical phenomena. The general principles are presented, with examples from traffic flow, river flows, granular flows, gas dynamics and diffusion.

These notes are concerned with the physics of phase transitions: the phenomenon that in particular environments, qualified by particular values of external parameters such as temperature, magnetic field etc., many systems exhibit singularities in the thermodynamic variables which best describe the macroscopic state of the system. For example...

This book is intended for a one semester introduction to absract algebra. Instead of spending a lot of time going over background material, we go directly into the primary subject matter. We discuss proof methods and necessary background as the need arises.

In mechanics and �eld theory (both classical and quantum), there are two main languages � La-grangian and Hamiltonian. In the classical setting, the Lagrangian language is the language of vari-ational calculus (i.e. one studies extremals of the action functional), while the Hamiltonian language is that of symplectic geometry and Hamilton equations. Correspondingly, in the quantum setting, the Lagrangian language is the language of path integrals, while the Hamiltonian language is the...

Similar to heat, a passive solvent is also transported by convection and di_usion. When the concentration of the solvent is low, the �ow a_ects the transport but the solvent does not a_ect the �ow. We explain a systematic theory of enhanced di_usion by shear-a phenomenon �rst analysized by G.I. Taylor, hence is called the Taylor dispersion.
