Mathematics and technology by Christiane Rousseau( )

19 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 536 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mathematics and Technology presents technological applications of mathematics making use of elegant mathematical concepts. The selected subjects consist of: public key cryptography, error correcting codes, the global positioning system (GPS) and cartography, image compression using fractals and the JPEG format, digital recording, robot movement, DNA computing, Google's PageRank algorithm, savings and loans, gamma ray surgery and random number generators. The authors highlight how mathematical modeling, together with the power of mathematical tools, have been crucial for innovation in technology. The exposition is clear, straightforward, motivated by excellent examples, and user-friendly. Numerous exercises at the end of every chapter reinforce the material. An engaging quality is the various historical notes accompanying the mathematical development." "This book is intended mainly for undergraduate students in pure and applied mathematics, physics and computer science, instructors, and high school teachers. The main prerequisites are linear algebra and Euclidean geometry. A few chapters require multivariable calculus and elementary probability theory. A clear indication of the more difficult topics and relatively advanced references make it also suitable for an independent reader mastering the prerequisites."--Jacket
Mathématiques et technologie by Christiane Rousseau( )

15 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in French and English and held by 407 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Les auteurs dévoilent les élégants concepts mathématiques cachés derrière des applications technologiques et les replacent dans un contexte historique. Les sujets traités comprennent : la cryptographie à clé publique, les codes correcteurs d'erreurs, le système de positionnement global (GPS) et la cartographie, la compression d'images à l'aide de fractals et à l'aide du format JPEG, la numérisation de la musique, les robots, l'ordinateur à l'ADN, l'algorithme PageRank de Google, l'épargne et l'emprunt, la chirurgie aux rayons gamma, les générateurs de nombres aléatoires. Un des leitmotivs du texte est que la modélisation mathématique, la puissance des outils mathématiques et l'abstraction jouent un rôle crucial dans l'innovation technologique. Les divers sujets sont présentés avec clarté, et les préalables mathématiques sont relativement élémentaires. Chaque chapitre comporte de nombreux exercices, certains élémentaires pour renforcer la compréhension, d'autres plus avancés pour explorer de nouvelles problématiques. Ce livre s'adresse aux étudiants en mathématiques pures et appliquées, en physique, en informatique, ainsi qu'aux futurs maîtres du secondaire. Les préalables sont l'algèbre linéaire, la géométrie euclidienne et, pour quelques chapitres, les probabilités élémentaires ou le calcul à plusieurs variables. Une mise en contexte historique enrichit le texte. Les sections plus difficiles sont clairement indiquées afin que le livre soit accessible à toute personne curieuse maîtrisant les préalables
Mathematical sciences with multidisciplinary applications : in honor of Professor Christiane Rousseau. And in recognition of the mathematics for planet Earth initiative by Bourama Toni( )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is the fourth in a multidisciplinary series which brings together leading researchers in the STEAM-H disciplines (Science, Technology, Engineering, Agriculture, Mathematics and Health) to present their perspective on advances in their own specific fields, and to generate a genuinely interdisciplinary collaboration that transcends parochial subject-matter boundaries. All contributions are carefully edited, peer-reviewed, reasonably self-contained, and pedagogically crafted for a multidisciplinary readership. Contributions are drawn from a variety of fields including mathematics, statistics, game theory and behavioral sciences, biomathematics and physical chemistry, computer science and human-centered computing. This volume is dedicated to Professor Christiane Rousseau, whose work inspires the STEAM-H series, in recognition of her passion for the mathematical sciences and her on-going initiative, the Mathematics of Planet Earth paradigm of interdisciplinarity. The volume's primary goal is to enhance interdisciplinary understanding between these areas of research by showing how new advances in a particular field can be relevant to open problems in another and how many disciplines contribute to a better understanding of relevant issues at the interface of mathematics and the sciences. The main emphasis is on important methods, research directions and applications of analysis within and beyond each field. As such, the volume aims to foster student interest and participation in the STEAM-H domain, as well as promote interdisciplinary research collaborations. The volume is valuable as a reference of choice and a source of inspiration for a broad spectrum of scientists, mathematicians, research students and postdoctoral fellows
Mathematics of planet Earth : mathematicians reflect on how to discover, organize, and protect our planet( Book )

8 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Our planet faces many challenges. In 2013, an international partnership of more than 140 scientific societies, research institutes, and organizations focused its attention on these challenges. This project was called Mathematics of Planet Earth and featured English- and French-language blogs, accessible to nonmathematicians, as part of its outreach activities. This book is based on more than 100 of the 270 English-language blog posts and focuses on four major themes: A Planet to Discover; A Planet Supporting Life; A Planet Organized by Humans; A Planet at Risk.--[Source inconnue]
Mathematik und Technologie by Christiane Rousseau( )

4 editions published in 2012 in German and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mathematik in Aktion im Zentrum der technologischen Forschung und Entwicklung. In diesem Buch geht es um die Rolle der Mathematik in zahlreichen technologischen Anwendungen. Die ausgewählten Anwendungen sind überwiegend modern und geben den Studenten einen Einblick in die Mathematik in Aktion. Das Buch ist hauptsächlich für Studenten der mittleren und höheren Studienjahre konzipiert, da eine gewisse mathematische Reife erforderlich ist. Der Text eignet sich auch für angehende Gymnasiallehrer. Es werden jedoch nur Grundkenntnisse der linearen Algebra, der Wahrscheinlichkeitstheorie, der euklidischen Geometrie und der Funktionen mehrerer Variabler vorausgesetzt. Das Buch behandelt noch viele weitere Themen, aber alle notwendigen mathematischen Werkzeuge (Gruppentheorie, endliche Körper usw.) werden auf elementare Weise eingeführt und in die Darstellung des betreffenden Themas eingearbeitet. Zu den ausgewählten Themen gehören: Kryptografie mit öffentlichem Schlüssel, fehlerkorrigierende Codes, das Global Positioning System (GPS) und Kartografie, Bildkompression mit Fraktalen und JPEG-Format, digitalisierte Musikwiedergabe, Roboterbewegung, DNA-Computing, Googles PageRank-Algorithmus, Sparen und Kredite, Gammastrahlenchirurgie und Zufallszahlengeneratoren. Die Kapitel können unabhängig voneinander behandelt werden. Einige Kapitel untergliedern sich in einen elementaren Teil und einen fortgeschrittenen Teil. An alle Kapitel schließen sich Übungsaufgaben an. Das Buch stellt einige Aspekte der Mathematik vor, die nicht Bestandteil einer typischen Mathematikausbildung sind: die Leistungsstärke der mathematischen Werkzeuge außerhalb der reinen Mathematik, die Rolle der Modellbildung sowie die Wechselwirkung zwischen technologischen und mathematischen Entwicklungen. Der Text präsentiert die Mathematik als elegantes wissenschaftliches Gebiet, dessen zahlreiche Anwendungen dazu beigetragen haben, unser Verständnis der uns umgebenden Welt zu forme

Mathematics: A Living Discipline within Science and Technology by Christiane Rousseau( Book )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This paper presents information on a course entitled "Mathematics and Technology" which was created at the University of Montreal and was taught once during the winter term of 2001. The students in the course were for the most part future high school teachers. Several applications of mathematics in technology are introduced and students are reminded throughout the course that mathematics is present everywhere in new technologies, mathematics is alive and new developments occur all of the time, and with mathematical tools and problem solving skills, anyone can contribute to technology.
