N-widths in approximation theory by Allan Pinkus( Book )

18 editions published between 1985 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 404 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

My original introduction to this subject was through conservations, and ultimate ly joint work with C.A. Micchelli. I am grateful to him and to Profs. C. de Boor, E.W. Cheney, S.D. Fisher and A.A. Melkman who read various portions of the manuscript and whose suggestions were most helpful. Errors in accuracy and omissions are totally my responsibility. I would like to express my appreciation to the SERC of Great Britain and to the Department of Mathematics of the University of Lancaster for the year spent there during which large portions of the manuscript were written, and also to the European Research Office of the U.S. Army for its financial support of my research endeavors. Thanks are also due to Marion Marks who typed portions of the manuscript. Haifa, 1984 Allan Pinkus Table of Contents 1 Chapter I. Introduction ... . Chapter II. Basic Properties of n-Widths . 9 1.

Totally positive matrices by Allan Pinkus( Book )

17 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 304 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Totally positive matrices constitute a particular class of matrices, the study of which was initiated by analysts because of its many applications in diverse areas. This modern account of the subject is comprehensive and thorough, with careful treatment of the central properties of totally positive matrices, full proofs and a complete bibliography. The history of the subject is also described: in particular, the book ends with a tribute to the four people who have made the most notable contributions to the history of total positivity: I.J. Schoenberg, M.G. Krein, F.R. Gantmacher and S. Karlin. This monograph will appeal to those with an interest in matrix theory, to those who use or have used total positivity, and to anyone who wishes to learn about this rich and interesting subject"--Provided by publisher
Foundations of computational mathematics, Hong Kong 2008 by Felipe Cucker( Book )

11 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is a collection of articles based on the plenary talks presented at the 2008 Society for the Foundations of Computational Mathematics meeting in Hong Kong. The talks were given by some of the foremost world authorities in computational mathematics. The topics covered reflect the breadth of research within the area as well as the richness and fertility of interactions between seemingly unrelated branches of pure and applied mathematics. As a result, this volume will be of interest to researchers in the field of computational mathematics and also to non-experts who wish to gain some insight into the state of the art in this active and significant field

Ridge functions by Allan Pinkus( Book )

9 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ridge functions are a rich class of simple multivariate functions which have found applications in a variety of areas. These include partial differential equations (where they are sometimes termed 'plane waves'), computerised tomography, projection pursuit in the analysis of large multivariate data sets, the MLP model in neural networks, Waring's problem over linear forms, and approximation theory. Ridge Functions is the first book devoted to studying them as entities in and of themselves. The author describes their central properties and provides a solid theoretical foundation for researchers working in areas such as approximation or data science. He also includes an extensive bibliography and discusses some of the unresolved questions that may set the course for future research in the field
Foundations of computational mathematics, Budapest 2011 by Felipe Cucker( Book )

5 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Foundations of Computational Mathematics meetings are a platform for cross-fertilisation between numerical analysis, mathematics and computer science. This volume is a collection of articles based on plenary presentations, given at the 2011 meeting, by some of the world's foremost authorities in computational mathematics. The topics covered reflect the breadth of research within the area as well as the richness of interactions between seemingly unrelated branches of pure and applied mathematics. As a result this volume will be of interest to researchers in the field of computational mathematics and also to non-experts who wish to gain some insight into the state of the art in this active and significant field

Backward Error Analysis for Totally Positive Linear Systems by Carl de De Boor( Book )

4 editions published in 1976 in English and Undetermined and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A novel formulation of the results of Wilkinson's backward error analysis allows the conclusion that partial pivoting is not necessary when solving totally positive linear systems. This saves storage and time when computing spline interpolants

Descartes systems from corner cutting by Charles A Micchelli( Book )

2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: "This paper demonstrates that Descartes Systems can be conveniently generated from matrix subdivision algorithms determined by totally positive matrices."
Spectral Properties and Oscillation Theorems for Mixed Boundary-Value Problems of Sturm-Liouville Type by Joe Won Lee( Book )

3 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper presents analogues of the spectral and oscillatory properties exhibited by classical Sturm-Liouville systems for certain mixed boundary value problems that include periodic boundary conditions as a special case. These mixed boundary-value problems have Green's functions which are sign consistent for all even and/or odd orders. (Author)
