18 Unconventional Essays on the Nature of Mathematics
ISBN: 9780387257174 / Angielski / Miękka / 352 str. Termin realizacji zamówienia: ok. 58 dni roboczych. This book comes from the Internet. Browsing the Web, I stumbled on philosophers, cognitive scientists, sociologists, computer scientists, even mathematicians saying original, provocative things about mathematics. And many of these people had probably never heard of each other So I have collected them here. This way, they can read each other s work. I also bring back a few provocative oldies that deserve publicity. The authors are philosophers, mathematicians, a cognitive scientist, an anthropologist, a computer scientist, and a couple of sociologists. (Among the mathematicians are two...

Coincidences, Chaos, and All That Math Jazz: Making Light of Weighty Ideas
ISBN: 9780393329315 / Angielski / Miękka / 288 str. Termin realizacji zamówienia: ok. 58 dni roboczych. A book for the eternally curious, Coincidences fuses a professor s understanding of the hidden mathematical skeleton of the universe with the sensibility of a standup comedian, making life s big questions accessible and compelling. Each chapter opens with a surprising insight not a mathematic formula, but a common observation. From there, the authors leapfrog over math and anecdote toward profound ideas about nature, art, and music. Coincidences is a book for lovers of puzzles and posers of outlandish questions, lapsed math aficionados and the formulaphobic alike."

This book contains the seminal papers that presented the ideas from which wavelet theory evolved, as well as those major papers that developed the theory into its current form. These papers originated in a variety of... This book traces the prehistory and initial development of wavelet theory, a discipline that has had a profound impact on mathematics, physics, and...

Optimal Control Theory for Infinite Dimensional Systems
ISBN: 9780817637224 / Angielski / Twarda / 450 str. Termin realizacji zamówienia: ok. 58 dni roboczych. Infinite dimensional systems can be used to describe many phenomena in the real world. As is well known, heat conduction, properties of elastic plastic material, fluid dynamics, diffusionreaction processes, etc., all lie within this area. The object that we are studying (temperature, displace ment, concentration, velocity, etc.) is usually referred to as the state. We are interested in the case where the state satisfies proper differential equa tions that are derived from certain physical laws, such as Newton's law, Fourier's law etc. The space in which the state exists is called the state...

Finite Horizon H∞ And Related Control Problems
ISBN: 9780817638115 / Angielski / Twarda / 122 str. Termin realizacji zamówienia: ok. 58 dni roboczych. HIS book presents a generalized statespace theory for the analysis T and synthesis of finite horizon suboptimal Hoo controllers. We de rive expressions for a suboptimal controller in a general setting and propose an approximate solution to the Hoo performance robustness problem. The material in the book is taken from a collection of research papers written by the author. The book is organized as follows. Chapter 1 treats nonlinear optimal control problems in which the cost functional is of the form of a quotient or a product of powers of definite integrals. The problems considered in Chap...

New Trends in Dynamic Games and Applications: Annals of the International Society of Dynamic Games Volume 3
ISBN: 9780817638122 / Angielski / Twarda / 484 str. Termin realizacji zamówienia: ok. 58 dni roboczych. The theory of dynamic games is very rich in nature and very much alive If the reader does not already agree with this statement, I hope he/she will surely do so after having consulted the contents of the current volume. The activities which fall under the heading of 'dynamic games' cannot easily be put into one scientific discipline. On the theoretical side one deals with differential games, difference games (the underlying models are described by differential, respec tively difference equations) and games based on Markov chains, with determin istic and stochastic games, zerosum and...

Clifford (Geometric) Algebras: With Applications to Physics, Mathematics, and Engineering
ISBN: 9780817638689 / Angielski / Twarda / 517 str. Termin realizacji zamówienia: ok. 58 dni roboczych. This volume is an outgrowth of the 1995 Summer School on Theoretical Physics of the Canadian Association of Physicists (CAP), held in Banff, Alberta, in the Canadian Rockies, from July 30 to August 12,1995. The chapters, based on lectures given at the School, are designed to be tutorial in nature, and many include exercises to assist the learning process. Most lecturers gave three or four fiftyminute lectures aimed at relative novices in the field. More emphasis is therefore placed on pedagogy and establishing comprehension than on erudition and superior scholarship. Of course, new and...

These are the terse notes for a graduate seminar which I conducted at Harvard during the Fall of 1963. By and large my audience was acquainted with the standard material in bundle theory and algebraic topology and I therefore set out directly to develop the theory of characteristic classes in both the standard cohomology theory and Ktheory. Since 1963 great strides have been made in the study of K(X), notably by Adams in a series of papers in Topology. Several more modern accounts of the subject are available. In particular the notes of Atiyah, IINotes on Ktheoryll not only start more...

But few subjects provoke hotter emotionsand inspire more love and hatredthan mathematics. And although math is frequently idealized as floating above the messiness of human life, its story is nothing if not human; often, it is all too human. Loving and Hating Mathematics is about the hidden human, emotional, and social forces that shape mathematics and affect the experiences of students and mathematicians. Written in a lively, accessible style, and filled with gripping stories and anecdotes, Loving and... Mathematics is often thought of as the coldest expression of pure reason.

Raoul Bott: Collected Papers: Volume 4: Mathematics Related to Physics
ISBN: 9780817636487 / Angielski / Twarda / 488 str. Termin realizacji zamówienia: ok. 58 dni roboczych. This paper is a greatly expanded account of the preliminary material that appeared in Atiyah & Bott (1980). Part ofthe reason for the long delay between that paper and this present version was that new viewpoints emerged that added further interest to the topic and enabled us to provide proofs for what had earlier been conjectures. The length of this paper is due to our desire to present the several different aspects of the problem. We feel that this is justified because the main interest lies not so much in the actual applications as in the methods employed and the interaction between...
