  • Rogerson's Book of Numbers: The Culture of Numbers---from 1,001 Nights to the Seven Wonders of the World

    THE tales at the back of OUR ICONIC NUMBERS

    Rogerson's booklet of Numbers is predicated on a numerical array of virtues, non secular attributes, gods, devils, sacred towns, powers, calendars, heroes, saints, icons, and cultural symbols.

    It presents a stunning mass of data for these intrigued through the various roles numbers play in folklore and pop culture, in song and poetry, and within the many faiths, cultures, and trust platforms of our world.

  • The Mathematical Foundations of Mixing: The Linked Twist Map as a Paradigm in Applications: Micro to Macro, Fluids to Solids (Cambridge Monographs on Applied and Computational Mathematics)

    By Rob Sturman, Julio M. Ottino, Stephen Wiggins

    Blending procedures happen in lots of technological and ordinary functions, with size and time scales starting from the very small to the very huge. the range of difficulties may give upward push to a variety of methods. Are there innovations which are relevant to them all? Are there instruments that permit for prediction and quantification? The authors exhibit how a number of flows in very varied settings own the attribute of streamline crossing. This inspiration might be put on enterprise mathematical footing through associated Twist Maps (LTMs), that's the crucial organizing precept of this booklet. The authors talk about the definition and building of LTMs, offer examples of particular mixers that may be analyzed within the LTM framework and introduce a few mathematical innovations that are then delivered to undergo at the challenge of fluid blending. In a last bankruptcy, they current a couple of open difficulties and new instructions.

  • The History of Mathematics: An Introduction

    The background of arithmetic: An creation, 7th variation, is written for the only- or two-semester math heritage path taken via juniors or seniors, and covers the historical past at the back of the subjects usually lined in an undergraduate math curriculum or in trouble-free colleges or excessive colleges. Elegantly written in David Burton’s imitable prose, this vintage textual content offers wealthy ancient context to the maths that undergrad math and math schooling majors stumble upon on a daily basis. Burton illuminates the folks, tales, and social context at the back of arithmetic’ maximum old advances whereas protecting applicable specialize in the mathematical recommendations themselves. Its wealth of knowledge, mathematical and historic accuracy, and well known presentation make The historical past of arithmetic: An creation, 7th variation a priceless source that academics and scholars will wish as a part of an everlasting library.

  • Elementary Concepts in Topology

    By Paul Alexandroff

    Alexandroff's attractive and chic creation to topology used to be initially released in 1932 as an extension of yes features of Hilbert's Anschauliche Geometrie. The textual content has lengthy been well-known as one of many best displays of the elemental techniques, important for mathematicians who haven't time for broad learn and for starting investigators.
    The ebook isn't really an alternative to a scientific textual content, yet an surprisingly necessary intuitive method of the fundamental suggestions. Its target is to give those ideas in a transparent, trouble-free type with no sacrificing their profundity or exactness and to provide a few indication of the way they're helpful in more and more parts of arithmetic. the writer proceeds from the fundamentals of set-theoretic topology, via these topological theorems and questions that are dependent upon the idea that of the algebraic advanced, to the idea that of Betti teams which binds jointly valuable topological theories in a complete and upon which purposes of topology principally rest.
    Wholly in line with present investigations, within which a bigger and bigger a part of topology is ruled by way of the idea that of homology, the e-book bargains essentially with the innovations of advanced, cycle, and homology. It issues the best way towards a scientific and completely geometrically orientated conception of the main basic constructions of space.

  • Understanding Analysis (Undergraduate Texts in Mathematics)

    By Stephen Abbott

    This full of life introductory textual content exposes the scholar to the rewards of a rigorous research of capabilities of a true variable. In each one bankruptcy, casual discussions of questions that supply research its inherent fascination are via particular, yet now not overly formal, advancements of the concepts had to make experience of  them. through targeting the unifying issues of approximation and the solution of paradoxes that come up within the transition from the finite to the limitless, the textual content turns what can be a daunting cascade of definitions and theorems right into a coherent and fascinating development of principles. aware of the necessity for rigor, the coed is far better ready to appreciate what constitutes a formal mathematical facts and the way to put in writing one.

    Fifteen years of lecture room adventure with the 1st version of Understanding Analysis have solidified and sophisticated the crucial narrative of the second one variation. approximately a hundred and fifty new routines subscribe to a range of the easiest workouts from the 1st version, and 3 extra project-style sections were further. Investigations of Euler’s computation of ζ(2), the Weierstrass Approximation ­ Theorem, and the gamma functionality at the moment are one of the book’s cohort of seminal effects serving as motivation and payoff for the start scholar to grasp the equipment of analysis.

    Review of the 1st edition:

    “This is a perilous booklet. Understanding Analysis is so well-written and the advance of the speculation so w

    ell-motiv

    ated that exposing scholars to it will probably good cause them to anticipate such excellence in all their textbooks. … Understanding Analysis is completely titled; in the event that your scholars learn it, that’s what’s going to ensue. … This incredible ebook becomes the textual content of selection for the single-variable introductory research direction … ”

  • Elementary Decision Theory (Dover Books on Mathematics)

    By Herman Chernoff

    "The textual content is particularly sincerely written [with] many illustrative examples and workouts [and] could be thought of through these teachers who wish to introduce a extra glossy (and a extra logical) method in a simple path in statistics." —Journal of the yank Statistical Association
    This quantity is a widely known, well-respected advent to a full of life zone of information. Professors Chernoff and Moses deliver years services as lecture room lecturers to this simple method of statistical difficulties. And fortunately, for starting scholars, they've got by-passed concerned computational reasonings which might in basic terms confuse the mathematical novice.
    Developed from 9 years of educating information at Stanford, the ebook furnishes an easy and uncomplicated approach to showing the basic elements of a statistical challenge. newcomers will locate this publication a motivating advent to big mathematical notions corresponding to set, functionality and convexity. Examples and routines all through introduce new themes and ideas.
    The first seven chapters are advised for starting classes within the simple rules of information and require just a wisdom of highschool math. those sections contain fabric on information processing, likelihood and random variables, software and descriptive records, uncertainty because of lack of information of the kingdom of nature, computing Bayes innovations and an creation to classical information. The final 3 chapters overview mathematical types and summarize terminology and techniques of checking out hypotheses. Tables and appendixes offer info on notation, shortcut computational formulation, axioms of likelihood, houses of expectancies, probability ratio try, video game idea, and application functions.
    Authoritative, but easy in its method of records and statistical thought, this paintings is additionally concise, well-indexed and abundantly outfitted with workout fabric. perfect for a starting path, this modestly priced version should be particularly invaluable to these drawn to the foundations of data and clinical method.
