This is a book making the argument that disease has made a major impact on history which has been a critical factor often overlooked by historians. It's from , so it needs some updating. It was also followed by two much better books, "Plagues and Peoples" by William McNeill, from , and "Guns, Germs, and Steel" by Jared Diamond from /5. Questions tagged [germs] Ask Question In mathematics, the notion of a germ of an object in/on a topological space is an equivalence class of that object and others of the same kind which captures their shared local properties.

Volume III of the Collected Works of V.I. Arnold contains papers written in the years to The main theme emerging in Arnold's work of this period is the development of singularity theory of smooth functions and mappings. The volume also contains papers by V.I. Arnold on catastrophe theory and on A.N. Kolmogorov's school, his prefaces to Russian editions of several books related to. MacArthur fellow and UCLA evolutionary biologist Diamond (The Third Chimpanzee, , etc.) takes as his theme no less than the rise of human the whole this is an impressive achievement, with nods to the historians, anthropologists and others who have laid the groundwork.

The geometrical nature of the Elementary catastrophes is ies of the movement of catastrophe manifolds and bifurcation sets are presented for some of the space-equivalent unfoldings described by Wassermann ().These unfoldings provide descriptions of the variation with time of the stability of stationary states of associated potential energy by: 7. What are germs? How do they spread? And how do medicines help? Curious young children can take a closer look at those mischievous, microscopic bacteria and viruses in this fascinating introduction to germs and hygiene, with 30 flaps to lift and tips on hand-washing and staying healthy. Written with advice from Public Health England.

Bröcker T () Differentiable germs and catastrophes. London Mathem. Soc. Lecture Notes Series. Cambridge Univ Press, Cambridge Google Scholar. Catastrophe theory is concerned with the mathematical modeling of sudden changes – so called “catastrophes” – in the behavior of natural systems, which can appear as a consequence of continuous changes of the system parameters.

While in common speech the word catastrophe has a negative connotation, in mathematics it is neutral. Singularity theory is a far-reaching extension of maxima and minima investigations of differentiable functions, with implications for many different areas of mathematics, engineering (catastrophe theory and the theory of bifurcations), and science.

By using Thom's catastrophe unfoldings as oscillator potentials, we have introduced more general models to describe the dynamics of nonlinear oscillators, differing from each other by the form of their potential wells and by the possibility of by: 7.

As such, the optimality (quality) metric (as a function of the parameters) is highly sensitive to the parameters, to the point of inducing instability for differential parameter by: 3. A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text.

"On the road" In this book a start is made to the "zoology" of the singularities of differentiable maps. This theory is a young branch of analysis which currently occupies a central place in mathematics; it is the crossroads of paths leading from very abstract corners of mathematics (such as algebraic and differential geometry and topology, Lie Brand: Birkhäuser Basel.Poston, Tim; Stewart, Ian (), Catastrophe Theory and Its Applications, Pitman, ISBN Brocker, Th (), Differentiable Germs and Catastrophes, Cambridge University Press, ISBN Differentiable germs and catastrophes, LMS Lect Jan References [1] Th.
