[E–pub/E–Kitap] Chance and Chaos Yazar David Ruelle
With their overreaching claims lousy justifications for them and an almost dreamy language most popular science books strongly resembles to this disgusting object Fortunately this book is an exceptionDavid Ruelle books strongly resembles to this disgusting object Fortunately this book is an exceptionDavid Ruelle recipient of the prestigious Boltzmann award the highest award in Statistical Mechanics a branch of theoretical physics is at his best in this book One of the founding fathers of the theory of onset of turbulence Ruelle describes in this book how chance and chaos shatters the deterministic model of the Universe And he doesn t forget to warn the readerA last word of caution Don t embark in eneral abstract discussions as to whether physics is deterministic or probabilistic local or not and so on The answer depends on the physical theory considered and how determinism or chance or locality is introduced in this theory A meaningful physical discussion always reuires an operational background Either this is provided by an existing theory or you have to Air Leadership give it yourself by the sufficiently explicit description of an experiment that can at least in principle be performed He introduces all the concepts in understandable terms in the book and then proceeds to elucidate them further byiving many examples I find this book a pleasure to read Also his wit and sarcasm are abundant
in this book A slightly long but amusing example Eternal return is something you will this book A slightly long but amusing example Eternal return is something you will in moderately complicated systems Take a flea and put it on a particular suare of a cheuerboard with a fence to prevent the flea from escaping Your flea will actively jump around and after a while visit again the suare from which it started This was the case for a moderately complicated system Now take a hundred fleas and provide them with name or number tags Put one flea on each suare of your cheuerboard and watch How long does it take until all fleas come back simultaneously to the suares from which they started If you do not have a hundred fleas at your disposal you could do a computer simulation of the experiment making reasonable assumptions on how fleas jump around Then you could write a technical paper on your findings with a title like A new theory of irreversibility If you are oing to submit it for publication in a physics journal don t be bashful Start boldly with We have discovered a novel mechanism for irreversibility etc or something of that sort and submit it for publication in the Physical Review They will reject it of course and send you copies of three referee s reports saying it s rubbish and explaining why Don t be put off rewrite your paper taking into account the remarks of the referees and resubmit it with a moderately indignant letter to the editors pointing out the contradictions between the reports of the different referees After your paper has been sent back and forth a couple times driving a few referees crazy it will be published in the Physical Review and if you were not already a physicist you will have become one Don t be deluded I a theoretical physicist don t work like this never But again the idea is not bad after all May be in a next paperHighly recommended It seems the topics are well designed and written but very hard to understand all of the paragraphs even you are an interested reader and very technical references are avoided in common content But I think you can understand it totally when the notes part which is included in the end of the book begins to make sense to you probably "because you are a physicist and or mathematician It is funny because "you are a physicist and or mathematician It is funny because had intended to read this book when I was 14 years old but luckily I could not reached it on those days but it has remained in my mind for 20 years never forget it and finally read it For sure the notes parts does not make any sense to me because i am not an expert on mathematicsAlso I wonder the author s current views on the theory mentioned in the first parts of Chap. Havaya attığınız bir paranın yazı ya da tura elme olasılığının ne olduğunu biliyor musunuz Fransız Yüksek Bilimler Enstitüsü'nde teorik fizik profesörü olan David Ruelle okuru yirminci yüzyılın bilimsel kavramları arasında bir eziye çıkarıyor Bilim adamları fiziksel sistemlerin içerdiği rastlantı ve kaos öğeler.

To Encourage Them To Readencourage them to read in other substantive books Since none of the topics in this book are new to me but I have no real knowledge of any of them either it s difficult for me to et a handle on how much one who was unfamiliar with them could really learn from reading it This book Lady Bug goes down like a high school cafeteria salad bar plenty of variety but overwhelmingly mediocreIt seems as though Ruelle simply sat down one Saturday and thought Hey I think I ll write a book and proceeded to regurgitate his stream of consciousness onto paper for the next several hours Ruelleives a somewhat shallow introduction to "A Huge Variety Of Interesting Topics But Jumps From One "huge variety of interesting topics but jumps from one the next so fast that nothing sticks Chance and Chaos reads like a series of blog posts than a unified book This book might be useful to someone who has never heard of a Turing machine algorithmic complexity or sensitive dependence on initial conditions but those who have will likely walk away unsatisfiedRuelle also harbors an odd obsession with Freudian psychoanalysis and awkwardly cites it as often as possible I had thought Freudian psychology held about as much scientific clout as intelligent design but perhaps it s still uite a contender in continental EuropeOn the upside Ruelle is an entertaining writer and offers many interesting and effective analogies for difficult concepts as well as an abundance of color commentary and stories on how science is or should be done I plan on looking into some of his focused and rigorous texts and papers on statistical physics and chaos as I suspect he might shine when reined in a bitAnd so my search for ood popular books on information and chaos continues I read the Mathematician s Brain yesterday enjoyed Ruelle s concise witty honest style I I would recommend if you enjoy unraveling threads Ivan Vinogradov MMMinMax Theophile de Donder Statistical Mechanics Vision Buxtehude This book is just awful How awful Like you SPAM folder This was a bit of an odd read It started out well very comprehensible and uite interesting addressing the topic at hand effectively It certainly sparked my already present interest in the topic of mathematical chaos However as the book went on it began to wander uite a bit and near the end it almost felt like the author s mind wasn t uite there There Is A Point Where The Author Goes a point where the author oes on a tangent about how the reader clearly no longer wants responsibility for the creation of the universe it comes off as uite odd and out of place and the last several chapters offer only bits and pieces of interesting or useful informationThe book is certainly enough to What Would Jane Do A Jane Austen Devotional give one an idea of what chaos is in mathematics and to an extent in a few specific other fields but it should be noted that it does not attempt to actually teach it which could never be done in so few pages In theoal of explaining it I would say that the book does a decent job What the book could really have used however is an editor who could detect and help to correct the points where the book begins to wander off its trail and keep the whole thing on topic and interesting This thin book has a lot of interesting ideas in it but if you want a book about chaos this one is probably not the best one to start with While the concept of chaos appears multiple times the book reads as a seuence of loosely connected articles rather than a book The topics covered include uantum mechanics statistical mechanics probability theory chaos theory and even information theory a bit too much at the same time i believe It s easy to pick up and read though as you can choose the chapters you fancy and learn something new the book also has a notes section which expand on the topics in chapters in detail for a scientifically inclined reader.
