Norm Inequalities for Derivatives and Differences by Man Kam Kwong

By Man Kam Kwong

Norm inequalities referring to (i) a functionality and of its derivatives and (ii) a chain and of its changes are studied. targeted simple proofs of uncomplicated inequalities are given. those are obtainable to a person with a heritage of complex calculus and a rudimentary wisdom of the Lp and lp areas. The classical inequalities linked to the names of Landau, Hadamard, Hardy and Littlewood, Kolmogorov, Schoenberg and Caravetta, etc., are mentioned, in addition to their discrete analogues and weighted models. top constants and the lifestyles and nature of extremals are studied and plenty of open questions raised. an intensive checklist of references is equipped, together with the various sizeable Soviet literature in this subject.

Matvei Petrovich Bronstein and Soviet Theoretical Physics in by Gennady Gorelik

By Gennady Gorelik

The brief existence and tragic demise of Matvei Petrovich Bronstein (1906-1938) might be visible as a logo of the man's time and his kingdom. the most outstanding positive aspects of Soviet background used to be the awesome enhance of its actual sciences opposed to the brutal and violent history of totalitarianism. Soviet advances in nuclear and area know-how shape an enormous a part of international historical past. those achievements had their roots within the 30s, whilst Bronstein's iteration entered technological know-how. between his acquaintances have been the well-known physicists Lev Landau and George Gamow. Bronstein labored within the mammoth box of theoretical physics, starting from nuclear physics to astrophysics and from relativistic quantum thought to cosmology. His pioneering paintings on quantizing gravitation is going past the heritage of physics, simply because this present day the quantum concept of gravitation occupies a different position in basic physics. Bronstein was once additionally a grasp of clinical clarification due to his profound wisdom, enthusiasm as a instructor and a present for literature. This enabled him to put in writing renowned technology for kids, the widest and so much responsive crew of readers. He grew to become a author with assistance from his spouse Lidiya Chukovskaya, identified now as a great author and fighter for human rights. Bronstein's existence was once heavily intertwined with the social, ancient and clinical context of 1 of the main tragic and interesting classes of Russian history.

Secondary cohomology operations by John R. Harper

By John R. Harper

Even though the idea and purposes of secondary cohomology operations are an immense a part of a sophisticated graduate-level algebraic topology direction, there are few books at the topic. The AMS fills that hole with the booklet of the current quantity. The author's major function during this publication is to improve the idea of secondary cohomology operations for singular cohomology conception, that's handled when it comes to ordinary buildings from normal homotopy thought. between many purposes thought of are the Hopf invariant one theorem (for all primes $p$, together with $p = 2$), Browder's theorem on greater Bockstein operations, and cohomology concept of Massey-Peterson fibrations. various examples and workouts aid readers to achieve a operating wisdom of the idea. A precis of extra complicated elements of the center fabric is integrated within the first bankruptcy. Prerequisite is easy algebraic topology, together with the Steenrod operations. The ebook is aimed at graduate scholars and study mathematicians attracted to algebraic topology and will be used for self-study or as a textbook for a complicated direction at the subject. it really is to be had in either hardcover and softcover variations

Applications of Knot Theory by Dorothy Buck and Erica Flapan, Dorothy Buck, Erica Flapan

By Dorothy Buck and Erica Flapan, Dorothy Buck, Erica Flapan

Over the last 20-30 years, knot idea has rekindled its historical ties with biology, chemistry, and physics as a way of constructing extra refined descriptions of the entanglements and homes of average phenomena--from strings to natural compounds to DNA. This quantity relies at the 2008 AMS brief path, purposes of Knot idea. the purpose of the fast path and this quantity, whereas no longer masking all facets of utilized knot thought, is to supply the reader with a mathematical appetizer, in an effort to stimulate the mathematical urge for food for additional examine of this interesting box. No earlier wisdom of topology, biology, chemistry, or physics is believed. particularly, the 1st 3 chapters of this quantity introduce the reader to knot thought (by Colin Adams), topological chirality and molecular symmetry (by Erica Flapan), and DNA topology (by Dorothy Buck). the second one half this quantity is targeted on 3 specific functions of knot idea. Louis Kauffman discusses purposes of knot thought to physics, Nadrian Seeman discusses how topology is utilized in DNA nanotechnology, and Jonathan Simon discusses the statistical and lively houses of knots and their relation to molecular biology

Spectral Theory in Riemannian Geometry by Olivier Lablee

By Olivier Lablee

Spectral conception is a various sector of arithmetic that derives its motivations, targets and impetus from a number of assets. particularly, the spectral conception of the Laplacian on a compact Riemannian manifold is a relevant item in differential geometry. From a actual element a view, the Laplacian on a compact Riemannian manifold is a primary linear operator which describes various propagation phenomena: warmth propagation, wave propagation, quantum dynamics, and so forth. in addition, the spectrum of the Laplacian includes great information regarding the geometry of the manifold.
This e-book supplies a self-containded creation to spectral geometry on compact Riemannian manifolds. beginning with an outline of spectral idea on Hilbert areas, the publication proceeds to an outline of the elemental notions in Riemannian geometry. Then its makes its method to subject matters of major pursuits in spectral geometry. the themes offered contain direct and inverse difficulties. Direct difficulties are thinking about computing or discovering houses at the eigenvalues whereas the most factor in inverse difficulties is “knowing the spectrum of the Laplacian, do we be sure the geometry of the manifold?”
Addressed to scholars or younger researchers, the current booklet is a primary creation in spectral concept utilized to geometry. For readers attracted to pursuing the topic additional, this e-book will offer a foundation for realizing rules, suggestions and advancements of spectral geometry.

Nonlinear programming by Olvi L. Mangasarian

By Olvi L. Mangasarian

This ebook addresses purely Nonlinear Programming conception.
You won't locate any algorithms, in order that this publication isn't very sensible. I additionally imagine the alternative of themes may be better.

So, why five stars ?

Because of the writing style.

That is, what i admire such a lot during this ebook is the best way that Mangasarian wrote it. References to all very important equations, definitions, and so on. no need of english to provide an explanation for math matters yet good outlined equations. Concise exposition and facts of theorems utilizing math simbols. that's: Math simbols to give an explanation for arithmetic. Very transparent sort.

A first-class instance of ways to write down a very good, didactic, specified and transparent math booklet.

Vedic Mathematics or Sixteen Simple Mathematical Formulae by Sri Bharati Krisna Tirthaji

By Sri Bharati Krisna Tirthaji

This epoch-making and huge paintings on Vedic arithmetic unfolds a brand new approach to method. It pertains to the reality of numbers and magnitudes both to all sciences and humanities. The ebook brings to mild how nice and real wisdom is born of instinct, relatively diversified from smooth Western technique. the traditional Indian technique and its mystery ideas are tested and proven to be able to fixing a number of difficulties of arithmetic.
