Mathematical foundations of information theory

Finished, rigorous advent to paintings of Shannon, McMillan, Feinstein and Khinchin. Translated by way of R. A. Silverman and M. D. Friedman.

Information and self-organization

This publication offers the ideas had to care for self-organizing complicated platforms from a unifying perspective that makes use of macroscopic facts. a number of the meanings of the concept that "information" are mentioned and a normal formula of the utmost info (entropy) precept is used. through effects from synergetics, enough goal constraints for a wide category of self-organizing structures are formulated and examples are given from physics, existence and machine technological know-how.

Treatise on Analysis

This quantity, the 8th out of 9, keeps the interpretation of ''Treatise on Analysis'' by way of the French writer and mathematician, Jean Dieudonne. the writer indicates how, for a voluntary constrained category of linear partial differential equations, using Lax/Maslov operators and pseudodifferential operators, mixed with the spectral idea of operators in Hilbert areas, results in strategies which are even more particular than ideas arrived at via ''a priori'' inequalities, that are lifeless purposes.

I n ? the distinguished points of Mor^(^4, B) are uniquely determined by the condition that M o r ^ ( / , —) and Mor^(-yg) are pointed set maps. I n the category S an initial object is 0 and a final object is {0}. Zero objects do not exist. T h e only zero morphisms have the form 0 —> A.

T w o objects are called equivalent if the representable functors, represented by these objects, are isomorphic. B y the Yoneda lemma this is the same equivalence relation as the one defined by isomorphisms of objects.
