Hilbert space

Hilbert space
The state of a vibrating string can be modeled as a point in a Hilbert space. The decomposition of a vibrating string into its vibrations in distinct overtones is given by the projection of the point onto the coordinate axes in the space. Hilbert spaces arise naturally and frequently in mathematics and physics, typically as infinite-dimensional function spaces. The earliest Hilbert spaces were studied from this point of view in the first decade of the 20th century by David Hilbert, Erhard Schmidt, and Frigyes Riesz. They are indispensable tools in the theories of partial differential equations, quantum mechanics, Fourier analysis (which includes applications to signal processing and heat transfer)—and ergodic theory, which forms the mathematical underpinning of thermodynamics. John von Neumann coined the term Hilbert space for the abstract concept that underlies many of these diverse applications.

Minkowski space In theoretical physics, Minkowski space is often contrasted with Euclidean space. While a Euclidean space has only spacelike dimensions, a Minkowski space also has one timelike dimension. The isometry group of a Euclidean space is the Euclidean group and for a Minkowski space it is the Poincaré group. History[edit] In 1905 (published 1906) it was noted by Henri Poincaré that, by taking time to be the imaginary part of the fourth spacetime coordinate √−1 ct, a Lorentz transformation can be regarded as a rotation of coordinates in a four-dimensional Euclidean space with three real coordinates representing space, and one imaginary coordinate, representing time, as the fourth dimension. The views of space and time which I wish to lay before you have sprung from the soil of experimental physics, and therein lies their strength. For further historical information see references Galison (1979), Corry (1997), Walter (1999). Structure[edit] The Minkowski inner product[edit] Standard basis[edit] where

Function space Examples[edit] Function spaces appear in various areas of mathematics: Functional analysis[edit] Functional analysis is organized around adequate techniques to bring function spaces as topological vector spaces within reach of the ideas that would apply to normed spaces of finite dimension. Bibliography[edit] Kolmogorov, A. See also[edit] Eigenvalues and eigenvectors If the vector space V is finite-dimensional, then the linear transformation T can be represented as a square matrix A, and the vector v by a column vector, rendering the above mapping as a matrix multiplication on the left hand side and a scaling of the column vector on the right hand side in the equation There is a direct correspondence between n-by-n square matrices and linear transformations from an n-dimensional vector space to itself, given any basis of the vector space. For this reason, it is equivalent to define eigenvalues and eigenvectors using either the language of matrices or the language of linear transformations.[1][2] Geometrically an eigenvector, corresponding to a real nonzero eigenvalue, points in a direction that is stretched by the transformation and the eigenvalue is the factor by which it is stretched. Overview[edit] In essence, an eigenvector v of a linear transformation T is a non-zero vector that, when T is applied to it, does not change direction. History[edit] or

Quelle hiérarchie de valeurs vous motive et guide votre jugement? FAITES LE TEST Mise à jour : Une révision de ce test, le Questionnaire des valeurs par portraits - révisé évalue 19 valeurs fondamentales plutôt que 10. Ce nouveau modèle est beaucoup plus précis et prédit mieux les attitudes et les comportements, soulignent les auteurs. Ce test, le Questionnaire des valeurs par portraits, publié par le chercheur en psychologie sociale Shalom H. Schwartz et ses collègues (1), évalue 10 valeurs fondamentales qui, selon le modèle de ces chercheurs, seraient universelles , c'est-à-dire se retrouveraient dans toutes les cultures. Les valeurs sont des croyances liées aux affects qui, à travers une diversité de contextes, motivent l'action et guident l'évaluation des actions des autres, des politiques, des personnes et des événements. Par exemple, les personnes pour qui l’indépendance est une valeur importante sont alertées si leur indépendance est menacée, malheureuses quand elles ne parviennent pas à la préserver, et heureuses quand elles peuvent l’exercer.

Level II: Universes with different physical constants Wave function Comparison of classical and quantum harmonic oscillator conceptions for a single spinless particle. The two processes differ greatly. The classical process (A–B) is represented as the motion of a particle along a trajectory. Wavefunctions of the electron of a hydrogen atom at different energies. According to the superposition principle of quantum mechanics, wave functions can be added together and multiplied by complex numbers to form new wave functions and form a Hilbert space. Historical background[edit] In 1905, Einstein postulated the proportionality between the frequency of a photon and its energy , [11] and in 1916 the corresponding relation between photon's momentum and wavelength [12], where is the Planck constant. , now called the De Broglie relation, holds for massive particles, the chief clue being Lorentz invariance,[13] and this can be viewed as the starting point for the modern development of quantum mechanics. Wave functions and wave equations in modern theories[edit] thus and

Ce que les jeux vidéo ont appris au nouveau ministre des finances de Grèce Avant de devenir ministre des finances, Yanis Varoufakis étudiait l'économie des communautés en ligne pour l'éditeur de jeux vidéo Valve. Le Monde.fr | • Mis à jour le | Par William Audureau et Damien Leloup Tout a commencé par « un étrange e-mail », un soir de 2012. Yanis Varoufakis, dont la dernière partie de jeu vidéo « devait être sur Space Invaders en 1981 ou quelque chose du genre » , ouvre machinalement un message envoyé par Gabe Newell, le président-directeur général de Valve, l'entreprise américaine qui gère la plus grande plate-forme de distribution de jeux vidéo dématérialisés, Steam. Lire son portrait (édition abonnés) : Yanis Varoufakis, la nouvelle tête des finances grecques Gabe Newell cherche à embaucher un économiste permanent : la manière dont Steam mêle économies virtuelle et réelle soulève de sérieuses questions pour le fonctionnement de son entreprise. "Les problèmes qui se posent sur Steam sont exactement les mêmes qu'entre la Grèce et l'Allemagne"
