Unlocking the Mystery of the Origins of John von Neumann’s Growth Model

In his famous “A Model of General Economic Equilibrium,” von Neumann wrote that it was “obvious to what kind of theoretical models [his] assumptions correspond.” To date, however, his sources of

The roots of computer simulation in the development of the ENIAC computer and the Monte Carlo method are revisited and it is concluded that the most important shifts in practice are about rethinking existing computational methods.

'A Pretence of What is Not'? A Study of Simulation(s) from the ENIAC Perspective.

What is the significance of high-speed computation for the sciences? How far does it result in a practice of simulation which affects the sciences on a very basic level? To offer more historical

UNBOUNDED EIGENVALUE PROBLEMS IN THE GENERALIZED FORM

Unbounded eigenvalue problems in the generalized form are reformulated, implicitly leading to bounded standard eigenvalue problems. By performing implicit linear fractional transformations, the way

Discriminação e decoerência: um modelo em caviades de microondas

Estudamos a evolucao de um q-bit monitorado por uma ponta de prova dispersiva sujeita a dissipacao. Ambos sao mapeados em um atomo de dois niveis "vestido" por um campo coerente no regime de alta

John von Neumann and the Foundations of Quantum Physics

The present volume embraces both historical and systematic analyses of von Neumann's methodology of mathematical physics, and of the various aspects of his work in the foundations of quantum physics, such as theory of measurement, quantum logic, and quantum mechanical entropy.

John von Neumann - selected letters

This collection of about 150 of von Neumann's letters is the first substantial collection of his letters, giving a rare inside glimpse of his thinking on mathematics, physics, computer science, science management, education, consulting, politics, and war.

Von Neumann’s contributions to quantum theory

That von Neumann has been "par excellence" the mathematician of quantum mechanics is as obvious to every physicist now as it was a quarter of a century ago. Quantum mechanics was very fortunate

John von Neumann’s work in the theory of games and mathematical economics

Of the many areas of mathematics shaped by his genius, none shows more clearly the influence of John von Neumann than the Theory of Games. This modern approach to problems of competition and

Der Mathematiker John von Neumann leitete selbst eine Gruppe von Ingenieuren, die einen Von-Neumann-Rechner entwickelten, and er leistete (im Unterschied zu fast allen anderen frühen Computerpionieren) zu den meisten Aspekten der Entwicklung des „Computing“ in den 1940er and 1950er Jahren.
