Classical algebra : its nature, origins, and uses by Roger Cooke ( Book )
10 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 613 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Classical Algebra provides a complete and contemporary perspective on classical polynomial algebra through the exploration of how it was developed and how it exists today. With a focus on prominent areas such as the numerical solutions of equations, the systematic study of equations, and Galois theory, this book facilitates a thorough understanding of algebra and illustrates how the concepts of modern algebra orginally developed from classical algebraic precursors." "Complemented with a mixture of historical remarks and analyses of polynomial equations throughout, this book is excellent for mathematics courses of the undergraduate level. It also serves as a valuable resource to anyone with a general interest in mathematics."--Jacket
Landmark writings in Western mathematics 1640-1940 by I Grattan-Guinness ( Book )
7 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 532 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book contains around 80 articles on major writings in mathematics published between 1640 and 1940. All aspects of mathematics are covered: pure and applied, probability and statistics, foundations and philosophy. Sometimes two writings from the same period and the same subject are taken together. The biography of the author(s) is recorded, and the circumstances of the preparation of the writing are given. When the writing is of some lengths an analytical table of its contents is supplied. The contents of the writing is reviewed, and its impact described, at least for the immediate decades. Each article ends with a bibliography of primary and secondary items
Mathematical analysis by V. A Zorich ( Book )
7 editions published between 2004 and 2009 in English and held by 342 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This work by Zorich on Mathematical Analysis constitutes a thorough first course in real analysis, leading from the most elementary facts about real numbers to such advanced topics as differential forms on manifolds, asymptotic methods, Fourier, Laplace, and Legendre transforms, and elliptic functions
Statistics in science : the foundations of statistical methods in biology, physics, and economics by Roger Cooke ( Book )
8 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 306 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Uncertainty analysis with high dimensional dependence modelling by Dorota Kurowicka ( Book )
8 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This text provides both the mathematical foundations and practical applications in this rapidly expanding area, including: an up-to-date, comprehensive overview of the foundations and applications of uncertainty analysis; all the key topics, including uncertainty elicitation, dependence modelling, sensitivity analysis and probabilistic inversion; numerous worked examples and applications; workbook problems, enabling use for teaching; software support for the examples, using UNICORN - a Windows-based uncertainty modelling package developed by the authors; and a website featuring a version of the UNICORN software tailored specifically for the book, as well as computer programs and data sets to support the examples."
Lectures on partial differential equations by V. I Arnolʹd ( Book )
4 editions published in 2004 in English and German and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Like all of Vladimir Arnold's books, this book is full of geometric insight. Arnold illustrates every principle with a figure. This book aims to cover the most basic parts of the subject and confines itself largely to the Cauchy and Neumann problems for the classical linear equations of mathematical physics, especially Laplace's equation and the wave equation, although the heat equation and the Korteweg-de Vries equation are also discussed. Physical intuition is emphasized. A large number of problems are sprinkled throughout the book, and a full set of problems from examinations given in Moscow are included at the end. Some of these problems are quite challenging!"--Résumé de l'éditeur
Ordinary differential equations by V. I Arnolʹd ( Book )
9 editions published between 1992 and 2006 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Although there is no lack of other books on this subject, even with the same title, the appearance of this new one is fully justified on at least two grounds: its approach makes full use of modern mathematical concepts and terminology of considerable sophistication and abstraction, going well beyond the traditional presentation of the subject; and, at the same time, the resulting enhancement of mathematical abstractness is counterbalanced by a constant appeal to geometrical and physical considerations, presented in the main text and in numerous problems and exercises. In the terms of mathematical approach, the text is dominated by two central ideas: the theorem on rectifiability of a vector field (which is equivalent to the usual theorems on existence, uniqueness, and differentiability of solutions) and the theory of one-parameter groups of linear transformations (equivalent to the theory of linear autonomous systems). The book also develops whole congeries of fundamental concepts--like phase space and phase flows, smooth manifolds and tangent bundles, vector fields and one-parameter groups of diffeomorphisms--that remain in the shadows in the traditional coordinate-based approach. All of these concepts are presented in some detail, but without assuming any background on the part of the reader beyond the scope of the standard elementary courses on analysis and linear algebra
Foundations of the classical theory of partial differential equations by I︠U︡. V Egorov ( Book )
2 editions published between 1992 and 1998 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
From the reviews of the first printing, published as volume 30 of the Encyclopaedia of Mathematical Sciences: "... I think the volume is a great success and an excellent preparation for future volumes in the series. ... the introductory style of Egorov and Shubin is .. attractive. ... a welcome addition to the literature and I am looking forward to the appearance of more volumes of the Encyclopedia in the near future. ..." The Mathematical Intelligencer, 1993 "... According to the authors ... the work was written for nonspecialists and physicists but in my opinion almost every specialist will find something new ... in the text. The style is clear, the notations are chosen luckily. The most characteristic feature of the work is the accurate emphasis on the fundamental notions ..." Acta Scientiarum Mathematicarum, 1993 "... On the whole, a thorough overview on the classical aspects of the topic may be gained from that volume." Monatshefte fr Mathematik, 1993 "... It is comparable in scope with the great Courant-Hilbert "Methods of Mathematical Physics", but it is much shorter, more up to date of course, and contains more elaborate analytical machinery. A general background in functional analysis is required, but much of the theory is explained from scratch, anad the physical background of the mathematical theory is kept clearly in mind. The book gives a good and readable overview of the subject. ... carefully written, well translated, and well produced." The Mathematical Gazette, 1993

Partial differential equations VI : elliptic and parabolic operators by I︠U︡. V Egorov ( Book )
1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume of the EMS contains three contributions covering topics in the field of partial differential equations: Elliptic operators on closed manifolds, degenerating elliptic equations and boundary problems, and parabolic equations. All the authors are well-known researchers and they present their material as accessible surveys enabling readers to find comprehensive coverage of results which are scattered throughout the literature. For this reason the book is a unique source of information. It forms part of a multi-volume subseries of the EMS devoted to partial differential equations and it will be very useful to graduate students and researchers in mathematics and theoretical physics as well as engineers who are interested in this subject
