### Variational Methods in Mathematics, Science and Engineering Springer Netherlands

**Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna**

The impulse which led to the writing of the present book has emerged from my many years of lecturing in special courses for selected students at the College of Civil Engineering of the Tech nical University in Prague, from experience gained as supervisor and consultant to graduate students-engineers in the field of applied mathematics, and - last but not least - from frequent consultations with technicians as well as with physicists who have asked for advice in overcoming difficulties encountered in solving theoretical problems. Even though a varied combination of problems of the most diverse nature was often in question, the problems discussed in this book stood forth as the most essential to this category of specialists. The many discussions I have had gave rise to considerations on writing a book which should fill the rather unfortunate gap in our literature. The book is designed, in the first place, for specialists in the fields of theoretical engineering and science. However, it was my aim that the book should be of interest to mathematicians as well. I have been well aware what an ungrateful task it may be to write a book of the present type, and what problems such an effort can bring: Technicians and physicists on the one side, and mathematicians on the other, are often of diametrically opposing opinions as far as books con ceived for both these categories are concerned.

### Mathematics Dover Publications

**Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna**

The Russian Equation Representative of the tremendous impact which Russian mathematicians have had on the Dover list since the Sputnik era is this outstanding book edited by A. D. Aleksandrov and others. Critical Acclaim for Mathematics: Its Content, Methods and Meaning: "In effect, these volumes present a do-it-yourself course for the person who would like to know what the chief fields of modern mathematics are all about but who does not aspire to be a professional mathematician or a professional user of mathematics. The coverage is extremely wide, including such important areas as linear algebra, group theory, functional analysis, ordinary and partial differential equations, the theory of functions of real and complex variables, and related subjects. . . . What makes these volumes so readable as compared with usual mathematics textbooks is the emphasis here upon basic concepts and results rather than upon the intricate and wearying proofs that make such demands in conventional textbooks and courses. There are proofs in these volumes, but usually they are presented only for the most important results, and even then to emphasize key areas and to illustrate the kind of methodology employed. . . . It is hard to imagine that any intelligent American with a curious mind and some good recollection of his high school and college mathematics would not find many entrancing discoveries in the intellectual gold mine that is this work."

### Representation Theory, 1 Springer, Berlin

**Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna**

Introducing the representation theory of groups and finite dimensional algebras, first studying basic non-commutative ring theory, this book covers the necessary background on elementary homological algebra and representations of groups up to block theory. It further discusses vertices, defect groups, Green and Brauer correspondences and Clifford theory. Whenever possible the statements are presented in a general setting for more general algebras, such as symmetric finite dimensional algebras over a field.§Then, abelian and derived categories are introduced in detail and are used to explain stable module categories, as well as derived categories and their main invariants and links between them. Group theoretical applications of these theories are given such as the structure of blocks of cyclic defect groups whenever appropriate. Overall, many methods from the representation theory of algebras are introduced.§Representation Theory assumes only the most basic knowledge of linear algebra, groups, rings and fields and guides the reader in the use of categorical equivalences in the representation theory of groups and algebras. As the book is based on lectures, it will be accessible to any graduate student in algebra and can be used for self-study as well as for classroom use.§

### Complex System Maintenance Handbook Springer, Berlin

**Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna**

This utterly comprehensive work is thought to be the first to integrate the literature on the physics of the failure of complex systems such as hospitals, banks and transport networks. It has chapters on particular aspects of maintenance written by internationally-renowned researchers and practitioners. This book will interest maintenance engineers and managers in industry as well as researchers and graduate students in maintenance, industrial engineering and applied mathematics.The efficient functioning of modern society depends on the smooth operation of many complex systems which provide products and services. These include transport systems, communication systems, utilities, manufacturing plants, processing plants, hospitals and banks. Such systems are unreliable in the sense that they degrade with age and/or usage and fail when they are no longer capable of delivering the products and services. When a complex system fails, the consequences can be dramatic. It can result in serious economic losses, affect humans and do serious damage to the environment. These failures can be controlled through preventive maintenance actions.§Due to advances in the understanding of the physics of failure, and in the technologies used to combat this failure; the literature on maintenance of unreliable systems is vast. Complex System Maintenance Handbook is the first book to integrate this vast literature with chapters written by internationally-renowned active researchers and experienced practitioners focussing on different aspects of maintenance. Each chapter will review the literature dealing with a particular aspect of maintenance, report on developments and trends in a particular industry sector or present a case study.§Complex System Maintenance Handbook narrows the gap between theory and practice and will trigger new research on different aspects of maintenance. It will be of interest to maintenance engineers and managers working in industry as well as researchers and graduate students in the fields of maintenance, industrial engineering and applied mathematics.The efficient functioning of modern society depends on the smooth operation of many complex systems which provide products and services.

### The Mathematical Coloring Book Springer, Berlin

**Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna**

This book is dedicated to problems involving colored objects, and to results about the existence of certain exciting and unexpected properties that occur regardless of how these objects are colored. In mathematics, these results comprise the beautiful area known as Ramsey Theory. Wolfram's Math World defines Ramsey Theory as the mathematical study of combinatorial objects in which a certain degree of order must occur as the scale of the object becomes large . Ramsey Theory thus includes parts of many fields of mathematics, including combinatorics, geometry, and number theory. This book addresses famous and exciting problems of Ramsey Theory, along with the history surrounding the discovery of Ramsey Theory. In addition, the author studies the life of Issai Schur, Pierre Joseph Henry Baudet and B.L. van der Waerden. In researching this book over the past 18 years, the author corresponded extensively with B.L. van der Waerden, Paul Erdos, Henry Baudet, and many others. As a result, this book will incorporate never before published correspondence and photographs.Historians of mathematics will herein find much new information, along with old errors corrected and published here for the first time in book form. And everyone will experience seeing, for the first time, faces one has not seen before in print, on rare and unique photographs of the creators of the mathematics presented herein, from Francis Guthrie to Frank Ramsey, and documents, such as the one where Adolph Hitler commits a micromanagement when firing Issai Schur, from his job as Professor of Mathematics at the University of Berlin.

### Literature of Spanish Caribbean to 1900 CD Primary Source Media

**Literatura faktu**

Some ten years before Harriet Beecher Stowe's 'Uncle Tom's Cabin', Cuban writer Anselmo Suarez y Romero captured - for the first time in the Americas - the sights, sounds and sensations of slavery.Translated into English for the first time, 'Francisco' is one of more than 800 texts collected in 'Literary Eras: Literature of the Spanish Caribbean to 1900'. Never before has such a comprehensive gathering of works from the Caribbean - the cradle of modern American culture - been brought together in a fully searchable, electronic format.Antonio Benitez-Rojo, the internationally recognized fiction writer ('A View from the Mangrove') and critic ('The Repeating Island'), and the poet, critic and translator Alan West-DurĂĄn have selected works ranging in genre from poetry to theater to autobiography and in subject from history to medicine, economics and politics. More than 200 authors are represented, including such well-known figures as Bartolome de las Casas and JosĂŠ MartĂŤ, and among the very first women and black writers published in the Americas: Leonor de Ovando and Juan Manzano, among dozens of others. A biography of each author, written especially for the disc in English and in Spanish, is also included.In addition to reproducing the texts in Spanish, these CD-ROMs offer translations for the first time of two dozen classic short stories, including work by Cirilio Villaverde, two dozen poems by such writers as Lola RodrĂguez de TĂo and the full-length novel, 'Francisco'. The two-disc set allows users to choose between an English and Spanish interface.Expertly edited, bringing a wealth of new material to light, 'Literary Eras: Literature of the Spanish Caribbean to 1900', is an unprecedented tool with which to study an area of growing importance to historians, literary critics, and many others.This database brings together a wide variety of resources that can be searched as never before. Now research that required hours of combing through library stacks, or travel to distant libraries, can be done efficiently through three types of searches: - Standard Search - a general survey-like search of the complete database for words and phrases using Boolean connectors, truncated Booleans, variant spellings, wild card and adjacency. Results are ranked by relevancy. - Advanced Search - a more targeted route offering specific data fields: Text, Author, Title, Index Term, Edition, Dates, Chapter and Type. As fields are delineated, searches are narrowed. - Natural Language Search - search words and phrases are retrieved, as are their synonyms from a proprietary thesaurus. The ability to locate, identify, reference and document various themes, moods, characterizations and word usage within the key works of a period allows unprecedented creativity in scholarly research. 'Literary Eras: Literature of the Spanish Caribbean to 1900' supports comprehensive and flexible research with functions such as:- Browsing - a researcher can review the entire database by opening the Table of Contents which is organized alphabetically by Type of Work. Options available to expand categories for in-depth content information or reorganize the data by Author, Title or Date for a different perspective on contents. - Cross-Reference - allows access to a list of related index terms from an active content window, with full bibliographic citations. Any listed item can then be linked and viewed. - Bookmark - enables the researcher to mark or recall a window for quick retrieval. - Revisit - lists every item previously viewed during a research session. A researcher can revisit an item, delete an unnecessary citation, or use the print/save option to either print or save the Revisit List for reference or if a session is interrupted.

### Fractional Differential Equations BERTRAMS

**Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna**

This book is a landmark title in the continuous move from integer to non-integer in mathematics: from integer numbers to real numbers, from factorials to the gamma function, from integer-order models to models of an arbitrary order. For historical reasons, the word 'fractional' is used instead of the word 'arbitrary'. This book is written for readers who are new to the fields of fractional derivatives and fractional-order mathematical models, and feel that they need them for developing more adequate mathematical models. In this book, not only applied scientists, but also pure mathematicians will find fresh motivation for developing new methods and approaches in their fields of research. A reader will find in this book everything necessary for the initial study and immediate application of fractional derivatives fractional differential equations, including several necessary special functions, basic theory of fractional differentiation, uniqueness and existence theorems, analytical numerical methods of solution of fractional differential equations, and many inspiring examples of applications. The key features include: a unique survey of many applications of fractional calculus; presents basic theory; includes a unified presentation of selected classical results, which are important for applications; provides many examples; contains a separate chapter of fractional order control systems, which opens new perspectives in control theory; the first systematic consideration of Caputo's fractional derivative in comparison with other selected approaches; and, includes tables of fractional derivatives, which can be used for evaluation of all considered types of fractional derivatives.

### Approximation Theory Springer, Berlin

**Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna**

We study in Part I of this monograph the computational aspect of almost all moduli of continuity over wide classes of functions exploiting some of their convexity properties. To our knowledge it is the first time the entire calculus of moduli of smoothness has been included in a book. We then present numerous applications of Approximation Theory, giving exact val ues of errors in explicit forms. The K-functional method is systematically avoided since it produces nonexplicit constants. All other related books so far have allocated very little space to the computational aspect of moduli of smoothness. In Part II, we study/examine the Global Smoothness Preservation Prop erty (GSPP) for almost all known linear approximation operators of ap proximation theory including: trigonometric operators and algebraic in terpolation operators of Lagrange, Hermite-Fejer and Shepard type, also operators of stochastic type, convolution type, wavelet type integral opera tors and singular integral operators, etc. We present also a sufficient general theory for GSPP to hold true. We provide a great variety of applications of GSPP to Approximation Theory and many other fields of mathemat ics such as Functional analysis, and outside of mathematics, fields such as computer-aided geometric design (CAGD). Most of the time GSPP meth ods are optimal. Various moduli of smoothness are intensively involved in Part II. Therefore, methods from Part I can be used to calculate exactly the error of global smoothness preservation. It is the first time in the literature that a book has studied GSPP.

### H. Kennedy - Peano Springer Netherlands

**Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna**

All students of mathematics know of Peano's postulates for the natural numbers and his famous space-filling curve, yet their knowledge often stops there. Part of the reason is that there has not until now been a full-scale study of his life and works. This must surely be surprising, when one realizes the length of his academic career (over 50 years) and the extent of his publica tions (over 200) in a wide variety of fields, many of which had immediate and long-term effects on the development of modern mathematics. A study of his life seems long overdue. It appeared to me that the most likely person to write a biography of Peano would be his devoted disciple Ugo Cassina, with whom I studied at the University of Milan in 1957-58. I wrote to Professor Cassina on 29 October, 1963, inquiring if he planned to write the biography, and I offered him my assistance, since I hoped to return to Italy for a year. He replied on 28 November, 1963, suggesting that we collaborate, meaning by this that I would write the biography, in English, using his material and advice. I gladly agreed to this suggestion, but work on the project had hardly begun when Professor Cassina died unexpectedly on 5 October, 1964. I then decided to continue the project on my own. I spent the academic year 1966-67 in Turin; completion of the book took ten years.

### Dictionary of Concepts in Recreation and Leisure Studies Greenwood Press

**Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna**

The obvious audience for this book is professionals, scholars, and students in the recreation field. However, many of these entries relate to other fields of interest...[T]his work should find a place in academic libraries supporting curricula in recreation and related leisure studies. Reference Books Bulletin The vocabulary and major concepts of the new field of recreation and leisure studies are just developing and this dictionary is the first major attempt to describe and systematize those concepts. Although university departments devoted to the study of recreation and leisure have been in existence for over half a century, there has never been a comprehensive dictionary written for the field. The concepts included in the dictionary may be grouped into four general categories. The first of these include elemental concepts--those ideas that form the intellectual bedrock of the field. Then there are theoretical concepts- scholarly models or interpretations of the patterns and processes seen in recreation and leisure. Research and methodological concepts make up the third category. while the fourth include professional concepts representing some of the basic ideas inherent in the service side of the field. Each definition is organized chronologically, emphasizing the evolution of the term and its interpretation or application. Definitions also point to links between concepts listed in the dictionary. Numerous references and suggestions for further reading are included for readers wishing to pursue a topic in more detail. Faculty and graduate students in recreation and leisure studies will welcome this first comprehensive dictionary of the field, as will the libraries of universities and colleges with a recreation and leisure studies department. The historical material and the critical review of conflicting definitions is a special feature and one that makes this book not only useful as a dictionary, but also as a reference work on state of the art ideas and concepts in the field.
