There are only three chapters. The first chapter "General Survey" introduces the basic ideas and provides two very important examples: Brownian motion and shot noise in vacuum tube diodes. Langevin's approach is introduced along with several important results that are used throughout the remainder of the text.

Chapter two is in many ways the core of the book and provides a number of important results and examples including the Wiener-Khinchine theorem and the Fokker-Planck equation. We are also provided with some rumination over the transition between reversible and irreversible behavior in physical systems. The third chapter is devoted to noise in electric circuits, and the book winds up with several appendices to which have been relegated bits of mathematical background and a few proofs of some of the results that appear in the book. This book is quite good and definitely worth taking a look at for the student new to this area.
I am very pleased to see this book from the 60s reprinted, many years ago it gave me my first notions about fluctuations in physics which have been quite relevant in all of my physics career. Particularly valuable is its continuous reference to both the time and the frequency domain for all fenomena. Excellent range of examples in all fields of application.
Mathematical formalism is kept to a minimum, elementary college calculus is everything you need to follow all of it. Compliments to Dover for this modern edition of a classic. Get to Know Us. Delivery and Returns see our delivery rates and policies thinking of returning an item?

Book Title Noise and fluctuations: Series Dover Books on Physics Subject category Mathematical Physics and Mathematics Abstract An understanding of fluctuations and their role is both useful and fundamental to the study of physics.
This concise study of random processes offers graduate students and research physicists a survey that encompasses both the relationship of Brownian Movement with statistical mechanics and the problem of irreversible processes.
