Implicit functions and solution mappings a view from variational analysis by A. L Dontchev( )
19 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in English and held by 614 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The implicit function theorem is one of the most important theorems in analysis and its many variants are basic tools in partial differential equations and numerical analysis. This second edition of Implicit Functions and Solution Mappings presents an updated and more complete picture of the field by including solutions of problems that have been solved since the first edition was published, and places old and new results in a broader perspective. The purpose of this self-contained work is to provide a reference on the topic and to provide a unified collection of a number of results which are currently scattered throughout the literature. Updates to this edition include new sections in almost all chapters, new exercises and examples, updated commentaries to chapters and an enlarged index and references section. From reviews of the first edition: 'The book commences with a helpful context-setting preface followed by six chapters. Each chapter starts with a useful preamble and concludes with a careful and instructive commentary, while a good set of references, a notation guide, and a somewhat brief index complete this study.... I unreservedly recommended this book to all practitioners and graduate students interested in modern optimization theory or control theory or to those just engaged by beautiful analysis cleanly described.' (Jonathan Michael Browein, IEEE Control Systems Magazine, February, 2012) 'This book is devoted to the theory of inverse and implicit functions and some of its modifications for solution mappings in variational problems.... The book is targeted to a broad audience of researchers, teachers and graduate students. It can be used as well as a textbook as a reference book on the topic. Undoubtedly, it will be used by mathematicians dealing with functional and numerical analysis, optimization, adjacent branches and also by specialists in mechanics, physics, engineering, economics, and so on.' (Peter Zabreiko, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1178, 2010) 'The present monograph will be a most welcome and valuable addition.... This book will save much time and effort, both for those doing research in variational analysis and for students learning the field. This important contribution fills a gap in the existing literature.' (Stephen M. Robinson, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2010)
Geometric control and nonsmooth analysis in honor of the 73rd birthday of H. Hermes and of the 71st birthday of R.T. Rockafellar by ANCONA FABIO( )
5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 567 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The aim of this volume is to provide a synthetic account of past research, to give an up-to-date guide to current intertwined developments of control theory and nonsmooth analysis, and also to point to future research directions
Network flows and monotropic optimization by R. Tyrrell Rockafellar( Book )
9 editions published between 1984 and 1998 in English and held by 502 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Variational analysis by R. Tyrrell Rockafellar( Book )
30 editions published between 1997 and 2010 in English and German and held by 481 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
From its origins in the minimization of integral functionals, the notion of 'variations' has evolved greatly in connection with applications in optimization, equilibrium, and control. It refers not only to constrained movement away from a point, but also to modes of perturbation and approximation that are best describable by 'set convergence', variational convergence of functions and the like. This book develops a unified framework and, in finite dimension, provides a detailed exposition of variational geometry and subdifferential calculus in their current forms beyond classical and convex analysis. Also covered are set-convergence, set-valued mappings, epi-convergence, duality, maximal monotone mappings, second-order subderivatives, measurable selections and normal integrands. The changes in this 3rd printing mainly concern various typographical corrections, and reference omissions that came to light in the previous printings. Many of these reached the authors' notice through their own re-reading, that of their students and a number of colleagues mentioned in the Preface. The authors also included a few telling examples as well as improved a few statements, with slightly weaker assumptions or have strengthened the conclusions in a couple of instances
Nonsmooth mechanics and analysis theoretical and numerical advances by P Alart( )
16 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in English and held by 466 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book's title, "Nonsmooth Mechanics and Analysis", refers to a major domain of mechanics, particularly those initiated by the works of Jean Jacques Moreau. Nonsmooth mechanics concerns mechanical situations with possible nondifferentiable relationships, eventually discontinuous, as unilateral contact, dry friction, collisions, plasticity, damage, and phase transition. The basis of the approach consists in dealing with such problems without resorting to any regularization process. Indeed, the nonsmoothness is due to simplified mechanical modeling; a more sophisticated model would
Conjugate duality and optimization by R. Tyrrell Rockafellar( Book )
17 editions published between 1974 and 1989 in English and German and held by 384 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Provides a relatively brief introduction to conjugate duality in both finite- and infinite-dimensional problems. An emphasis is placed on the fundamental importance of the concepts of Lagrangian function, saddle-point, and saddle-value. General examples are drawn from nonlinear programming, approximation, stochastic programming, the calculus of variations, and optimal control
