Geometry of classical fields by Ernst Binz( Book )

24 editions published between 1988 and 2011 in English and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is an introduction to differential methods in physics. Part I contains a comprehensive presentation of the geometry of manifolds and Lie groups, including infinite dimensional settings. The differential geometric notions introduced in Part I are used in Part II to develop selected topics in field theory, from the basic principles up to the present state of the art. This second part is a systematic development of a covariant Hamiltonian formulation of field theory starting from the principle of stationary action
A history of the central limit theorem : from classical to modern probability theory by Hans Fischer( Book )

17 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study aims to embed the history of the central limit theorem within the history of the development of probability theory from its classical to its modern shape, and, more generally, within the corresponding development of mathematics. The history of the central limit theorem is not only expressed in light of "technical" achievement, but is also tied to the intellectual scope of its advancement. The history starts with Laplace's 1810 approximation to distributions of linear combinations of large numbers of independent random variables and its modifications by Poisson, Dirichlet, and Cauchy, and it proceeds up to the discussion of limit theorems in metric spaces by Donsker and Mourier around 1950. This self-contained exposition additionally describes the historical development of analytical probability theory and its tools, such as characteristic functions or moments. The importance of historical connections between the history of analysis and the history of probability theory is demonstrated in great detail. With a thorough discussion of mathematical concepts and ideas of proofs, the reader will be able to understand the mathematical details in light of contemporary development. Special terminology and notations of probability and statistics are used in a modest way and explained in historical context
