Complexity and real computation by
Lenore Blum(
Book
)
16 editions published between 1984 and 1998 in English and held by 499 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The classical theory of computation has its origins in the work of Goedel, Turing, Church, and Kleene and has been an extraordinarily successful framework for theoretical computer science. The thesis of this book, however, is that it provides an inadequate foundation for modern scientific computation where most of the algorithms are real number algorithms. The goal of this book is to develop a formal theory of computation which integrates major themes of the classical theory and which is more directly applicable to problems in mathematics, numerical analysis, and scientific computing. Along the way, the authors consider such fundamental problems as: * Is the Mandelbrot set decidable? * For simple quadratic maps, is the Julia set a halting set? * What is the real complexity of Newton's method? * Is there an algorithm for deciding the knapsack problem in a ploynomial number of steps? * Is the Hilbert Nullstellensatz intractable? * Is the problem of locating a real zero of a degree four polynomial intractable? * Is linear programming tractable over the reals? The book is divided into three parts: The first part provides an extensive introduction and then proves the fundamental NPcompleteness theorems of CookKarp and their extensions to more general number fields as the real and complex numbers. The later parts of the book develop a formal theory of computation which integrates major themes of the classical theory and which is more directly applicable to problems in mathematics, numerical analysis, and scientific computing

Fermat's last theorem : the theorem and its proof, an exploration of issues and ideas(
Visual
)
3 editions published between 1993 and 2012 in English and held by 198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The videotape is based on a presentation at the Palace of Fine Arts Theater in San Francisco that took place on July 28, 1993, exactly five weeks after Andrew Wiles announced that he had a proof of Fermat's Last Theorem. The videotape also includes excerpts from an interview with Andrew Wiles made in Oxford, England, the day after he announced his proof in Cambridge. Both the booklet and the videotape are designed for a general audience. They deal not only with Fermat's Last Theorem itself, but with the excitement of mathematical discovery in general and the way mathematical ideas can illuminate other subjects

Expanding your horizons in science and mathematics : conferences for young women interested in new career options : a handbook
for planners by
Joanne Koltnow(
Book
)
1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This handbook is designed to help educators and community people encourage young women to consider science and mathbased careers. The book explains how to plan, conduct, evaluate, and followup conferences designed to increase young women's interest in mathematics and science. The author feels that an intense day of exposure to female role models and career information, and positive handson experiences with math and science activities, can spark the spirit, trigger the imagination, and encourage young women to consider many new and exciting career opportunities. Materials contained in the appendix include: six handson workshop activities; suggested titles for workshops; sample brochure and news release; preconference and postconference questionnaires; a national resource list; a bibliography; some startling statements about women in science and mathematics; and a suggested time line for the conference.
