 1 Discrete  Gilles Retsin Auteur : Gilles Retsin Genre : Art & Architecture After two decades of experimentation with the digital, the prevalent paradigm of formal continuity is being revised and questioned by an emerging generation of architects and theorists. While the world struggles with a global housing crisis and the impact of accelerated automation on labour, digital designers’ narrow focus on mere style and continuous differentiation seems increasingly out of touch.
This issue charts an emerging body of work that is based on a computational understanding of the discrete part or building block – elements that are as scalable, accessible and versatile as digital data. The discrete proposes that a new, digital understanding of assembly, based on parts, contains the greatest promise for a complex, openended, adaptable architecture. This approach capitalises on the digital economy and automation, with the potential of the digital to democratis

Quantum Mechanics
 13 Discrete Quantum Mechanics  H. Thomas Williams Auteur : H. Thomas Williams Genre : Physics After a quarter century of discoveries that rattled the foundations of classical mechanics and electrodynamics, the year 1926 saw the publication of two works intended to provide a theoretical structure to support new quantum explanations of the subatomic world. Heisenberg's matrix mechanics and Schrodinger’s wave mechanics provided compatible but mathematically disparate ways of unifying the discoveries of Planck, Einstein, Bohr and many others. Efforts began immediately to prove the equivalence of these two structures, culminated successfully by John von Neumann’s 1932 volume "Mathematical Foundations of Quantum Mechanics." This forms the springboard for the current effort. We begin with a presentation of a minimal set of von Neumann postulates while introducing language and notation to facilitate subsequent discussion of quantum calculations based in finite dimensional

Progress Traceability Conjecture Oriented Formula
 21 Progress on the Traceability Conjecture for Oriented Graphs (Formula)  Discrete Mathematics and Theoretical Computer Science Auteur : Discrete Mathematics and Theoretical Computer Science Genre : Computers 1 Introduction The set of vertices and the set of arcs of a digraph D are denoted by V(D) and A(D), respectively, and the order of D is denoted n(D). A directed cycle (path, walk) in a digraph will simply be called a cycle (path, walk). A digraph is hamiltonian if it contains a cycle that visits every vertex, traceable if it contains a path that visits every vertex, walkable (or unilaterally connected) if it contains a walk that visits every vertex, and strong (or strongly connected) if it has a closed walk that visits every vertex.

Colored
 22 Colored Discrete Spaces  Luca Lionni Auteur : Luca Lionni Genre : Physics This book provides a number of combinatorial tools that allow a systematic study of very general discrete spaces involved in the context of discrete quantum gravity. In any dimension D, we can discretize Euclidean gravity in the absence of matter over random discrete spaces obtained by gluing families of polytopes together in all possible ways. These spaces are then classified according to their curvature. In D=2, it results in a theory of random discrete spheres, which converge in the continuum limit towards the Brownian sphere, a random fractal space interpreted as a quantum random spacetime. In this limit, the continuous Liouville theory of D=2 quantum gravity is recovered.
Previous results in higher dimension regarded triangulations, converging towards a continuum random tree, or gluings of simple building blocks of small sizes, for which multitrace

Journey Mathematics
 23 A Brief Journey in Discrete Mathematics  Randolph Nelson Auteur : Randolph Nelson Genre : Mathematics The goal of this book is to showcase the beauty of mathematics as revealed in nine topics of discrete mathematics. In each chapter, properties are explored through a series of straightforward questions that terminate with results that lie at the doorstep of a field of study. Each step along the way is elementary and requires only algebraic manipulation. This frames the wonder of mathematics and highlights the complex world that lies behind a series of simple, mathematical, deductions.
Topics addressed include combinatorics, unifying properties of symmetric functions, the Golden ratio as it leads to kbonacci numbers, nonintuitive and surprising results found in a simple coin tossing game, the playful, trick question aspect of modular systems, exploration of basic properties of prime numbers and derivations of bewildering results that arise from approximating irrational numbers as

This volume reports on some of that work. It provides a gli

 25 La Discrète  JeanPierre Ronssin & Christian Vincent Auteur : JeanPierre Ronssin & Christian Vincent Genre : Fiction Au XVIIe siècle, les femmes portaient ce qu'on appelle des mouches. C'étaient des petits morceaux de taffetas noir qu'elles se collaient sur le visage ou sur les seins pour faire ressortir la blancheur de leur peau... Celle que l'on portait sur le front s'appelait la majestueuse ; au coin de l'œil, c'était la passionnée, près des lèvres, c'était la galante ; celle qui cachait un bouton, c'était la voleuse ; et celle qu'on portait sur le menton, comme vous ce grain de beauté, on l'appelait la discrète... L'élégance du verbe, les clins d'œil littéraires, l'histoire ellemême, tout se prêtait à publier le scénario du premier film de Christian Vincent. Couronné par de nombreux prix, salué par une critique unanime et élogieuse, la première des récompenses, c'est assurément l'enthousiasme du public qui a retrouvé dans ce film le goût d'un cinéma de la parole.

Branching Processes Environment
 28 Discrete Time Branching Processes in Random Environment  Götz Kersting & Vladimir Vatutin Auteur : Götz Kersting & Vladimir Vatutin Genre : Mathematics Branching processes are stochastic processes which represent the reproduction of particles, such as individuals within a population, and thereby model demographic stochasticity. In branching processes in random environment (BPREs), additional environmental stochasticity is incorporated, meaning that the conditions of reproduction may vary in a random fashion from one generation to the next.
This book offers an introduction to the basics of BPREs and then presents the cases of critical and subcritical processes in detail, the latter dividing into weakly, intermediate, and strongly subcritical regimes.

Mechanics
 42 Discrete Mechanics  JeanPaul Caltagirone Auteur : JeanPaul Caltagirone Genre : Mathematics The discrete vision of mechanics is based on the founding ideas of Galileo and the principles of relativity and equivalence, which postulate the equality between gravitational mass and inertial mass. To these principles are added the Hodge–Helmholtz decomposition, the principle of accumulation of constraints and the hypothesis of the duality of physical actions.
These principles make it possible to establish the equation of motion based on the conservation of acceleration considered as an absolute quantity in a local frame of reference, in the form of a sum of the gradient of the scalar potential and the curl of the vector potential. These potentials, which represent the constraints of compression and rotation, are updated from the discrete operators.
Discrete Mechanics: Concepts and Applications shows that this equation of discrete motion is representati

Optimization Architecture
 44 Discrete Optimization in Architecture  Machi Zawidzki Auteur : Machi Zawidzki Genre : Engineering This book presents three projects that demonstrate the
fundamental problems of architectural design and urban composition – the layout
design, evaluation and optimization. Part I describes the functional layout
design of a residential building, and an evaluation of the quality of a town
square (plaza).
The algorithm for the functional layout design is based on
backtracking using a constraint satisfaction approach combined with coarse grid
discretization. The algorithm for the town square evaluation is based on
geometrical properties derived directly from its plan.
Part II introduces a crowdsimulation application for the
analysis of escape routes on floor plans, and optimization of a floor plan for
smooth crowd flow. The algorithms presented employ agentbased modeling and
cellular automata.

The textbook is appropriate for both upperlevel undergraduate and graduate courses. Expands coverage by more than 200 pages over the previous edition;Grounds detail of vibration within discrete and continuous systems with thorough references to the theory of vibration;

Problems Continuous
 46 Problems from the Discrete to the Continuous  Ross G. Pinsky Auteur : Ross G. Pinsky Genre : Mathematics The primary intent of the book is to introduce an array of beautiful problems in a variety of subjects quickly, pithily and completely rigorously to graduate students and advanced undergraduates. The book takes a number of specific problems and solves them, the needed tools developed along the way in the context of the particular problems. It treats a mélange of topics from combinatorial probability theory, number theory, random graph theory and combinatorics. The problems in this book involve the asymptotic analysis of a discrete construct as some natural parameter of the system tends to infinity. Besides bridging discrete mathematics and mathematical analysis, the book makes a modest attempt at bridging disciplines. The problems were selected with an eye toward accessibility to a wide audience, including advanced undergraduate students. The book could be used for a seminar course in w

Stability Turnpike Phenomenon Optimal Control Problems
 47 Stability of the Turnpike Phenomenon in DiscreteTime Optimal Control Problems  Alexander J. Zaslavski Auteur : Alexander J. Zaslavski Genre : Mathematics The structure of approximate solutions of autonomous discretetime optimal control problems and individual turnpike results for optimal control problems without convexity (concavity) assumptions are examined in this book. In particular, the book focuses on the properties of approximate solutions which are independent of the length of the interval, for all sufficiently large intervals; these results apply to the socalled turnpike property of the optimal control problems. By encompassing the socalled turnpike property the approximate solutions of the problems are determined primarily by the objective function and are fundamentally independent of the choice of interval and endpoint conditions, except in regions close to the endpoints. This book also explores the turnpike phenomenon for two large classes of autonomous optimal control problems. It is illustrated that the turnpike
