Techniques of problem solving by Steven G Krantz( Book )

19 editions published between 1996 and 1999 in English and held by 1,030 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this book is to teach the basic principles of problem solving, including both mathematical and nonmathematical problems. This book will help students to translate verbal discussions into analytical data; learn problem-solving methods for attacking collections of analytical questions or data; build a personal arsenal of solutions and internalized problem-solving techniques; and become "armed problem solvers", ready to battle with a variety of puzzles in different areas of life. Taking a direct and practical approach to the subject matter, Krantz's book stands apart from others like it in that it incorporates exercises throughout the text. After many solved problems are given, a "Challenge Problem" is presented. Additional problems are included for readers to tackle at the end of each chapter. There are more than 350 problems in all. A Solutions Manual to most end-of-chapter exercises is available
Function theory of several complex variables by Steven G Krantz( Book )

39 editions published between 1981 and 2008 in English and held by 874 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Krantz has a very readable style and this is one math book that is fun reading (assuming you have the background listed above). No definition causes you to wonder why it was defined, and no theorem causes you to wonder why it was proved. It's also one of the few books that defines sheaf cohomology in terms of actual geometric intuition and concrete examples. Even readers not interested in several complex variables should benefit from the way he treats tangential subjects in this book
Function theory of one complex variable by Robert Everist Greene( Book )

25 editions published between 1997 and 2006 in English and Italian and held by 833 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Real analysis and foundations by Steven G Krantz( Book )

27 editions published between 1991 and 2014 in English and held by 746 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Real Analysis and Foundations is an advanced undergraduate and first-year graduate textbook that introduces students to introductory topics in real analysis (or real variables), point set topology, and the calculus of variations. This classroom-tested book features over 350 end-of-chapter exercises that clearly develop and reinforce conceptual topics. It also provides an excellent review chapter on math foundations topics, as well as accessible coverage of classical topics, such as Weirstrass Approximation Theorem, Ascoli-Arzela Theorem and Schroeder-Bernstein Theorem. Explanations and discussions of key concepts are so well done that Real Analysis and Foundations will also provide valuable information for professional aerospace and structural engineers
A primer of mathematical writing : being a disquisition on having your ideas recorded, typeset, published, read and appreciated by Steven G Krantz( Book )

20 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in English and held by 737 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Krantz's frank and straightforward approach makes this particularly suitable as a textbook. He does not avoid difficult topics. His intent is to demonstrate to the reader how to successfully operate within the profession. He outlines how to write grant proposals that are persuasive and compelling, how to write a letter of recommendation describing the research abilities of a candidate for promotion or tenure, and what a dean is looking for in a letter of recommendation. He further addresses some basic issues such as writing a book proposal to a publisher or applying for a job

The implicit function theorem : history, theory, and applications by Steven G Krantz( Book )

29 editions published between 2002 and 2013 in English and held by 496 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The implicit function theorem is part of the bedrock of mathematical analysis and geometry. Finding its genesis in eighteenth century studies of real analytic functions and mechanics, the implicit and inverse function theorems have now blossomed into powerful tools in the theories of partial differential equations, differential geometry, and geometric analysis.There are many different forms of the implicit function theorem, including (i) the classical formulation for Ck functions, (ii) formulations in other function spaces, (iii) formulations for non-smooth function, and (iv) formulations for

An episodic history of mathematics : mathematical culture through problem solving by Steven G Krantz( Book )

12 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 413 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An Episodic History of Mathematics delivers a series of snapshots of mathematics and mathematicians from ancient times to the twentieth century. Giving readers a sense of mathematical culture and history, the book also acquaints readers with the nature and techniques of mathematics via exercises. It introduces the genesis of key mathematical concepts. For example, while Krantz does not get into the intricate mathematical details of Andrew Wiles's proof of Fermat's Last Theorem, he does describe some of the streams of thought that posed the problem and led to its solution. The focus in this text, moreover, is on doing - getting involved with the mathematics and solving problems. Every chapter ends with a detailed problem set that will provide students with avenues for exploration and entry into the subject. It recounts the history of mathematics; offers broad coverage of the various schools of mathematical thought to give readers a wider understanding of mathematics; and includes exercises to help readers engage with the text and gain a deeper understanding of the material."--Publisher's description
