The history of mathematics : a brief course by Roger Cooke ( Book )
31 editions published between 1997 and 2013 in English and held by 1,459 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Second Edition of this internationally acclaimed text has been thoroughly revised, updated, and reorganized to give readers a fresh perspective on the evolution of mathematics. Written by one of the world's leading experts on the history of mathematics, the book details the key historical developments in the field, providing an understanding and appreciation of how mathematics influences today's science, art, music, literature, and society."--Jacket
The mathematics of Sonya Kovalevskaya by Roger Cooke ( Book )
15 editions published between 1984 and 2012 in English and held by 626 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Classical algebra : its nature, origins, and uses by Roger Cooke ( Book )
15 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 605 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."--BOOK JACKET
Landmark writings in Western mathematics 1640-1940 by I Grattan-Guinness ( Book )
6 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 472 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. First book of its kind Covers the period 1640-1940 of massive development in mathematics Describes many of the main writings of mathematics Articles written by specialists in their field
Mathematical analysis by V. A Zorich ( Book )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 301 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 )
1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Uncertainty analysis with high dimensional dependence modelling by Dorota Kurowicka ( Book )
12 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 236 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 73 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
