Dreams of calculus : perspectives on mathematics education by Johan Hoffman( Book )

16 editions published in 2004 in English and German and held by 417 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What is the relationship between modern mathematics - more precisely computational mathematics - and mathematical education? It is this controversal topic that the authors address with an in-depth analysis. In fact, what they present in an extremely well-reasoned account of the development of mathematics and its culture giving concrete recommendation for a much-needed reform of the teaching of mathematics. The book is essential reading for everybody involved in mathematics and science, and mathematics teaching. TOC:Perspectives.-Introduction.-What? How? For Whom?

Computational turbulent incompressible flow by Johan Hoffman( Book )

15 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is Volume 4 of the book series of the Body & Soul mathematics education reform program, and presents a unified new approach to computational simulation of turbulent flow starting from the general basis of calculus and linear algebra of Vol 1-3. The book puts the Body & Soul computational finite element methodology in the form of General Galerkin (G2), up against the challenge of computing turbulent solutions of the inviscid Euler equations and the Navier-Stokes equations with small viscosity. The book shows that direct application of G2 without any turbulence or wall modeling, allows reliable computation on a PC of mean value quantities of turbulent flow such as drag and lift. The power of G2 is demonstrated by resolving several classical scientific paradoxes of fluid flow and by uncovering secrets of flying, sailing, racing and ball sports. The book presents new aspects on both mathematics and computation of turbulent flow, and challenges established approaches. The book is directed to a wide audience of computational mathematicians fluid dynamicists and scientists. The G2 solver is available as part the free software project FEniCS at www.fenics.org. The book has a dedicated dynamic web page, including movies from a wide variety of simulations, at www.bodysoulmath.org. The book is focussed on incompressible flow, but opens to compressible flow continued in Vol 5 on thermodynamics. The authors are experts on computational mathematics and technology

9 editions published between 1998 and 2006 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume contains the texts of the four series of lectures presented by B. Cockburn, C. Johnson, C.W. Shu and E. Tadmor at a C.I.M.E. Summer School. It is aimed at providing a comprehensive and up-to-date presentation of numerical methods which are nowadays used to solve nonlinear partial differential equations of hyperbolic type, developing shock discontinuities. The most effective methodologies in the framework of finite elements, finite differences, finite volumes spectral methods and kinetic methods, are addressed, in particular high-order shock capturing techniques, discontinuous Galerkin methods, adaptive techniques based upon a-posteriori error analysis

Slaying the sky dragon : death of the greenhouse gas theory : the settled climate science-- revisited( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Eight leading international experts methodically expose how willful fakery and outright incompetence were hidden within the politicized realm of government climatology. Applying a thoughtful and sympathetic writing style, the authors help even the untrained mind to navigate the maze of atmospheric thermodynamics. Step by step the reader is shown why the so-called greenhouse effect cannot possibly exist in nature." --Back cover
