Computational and analytical mathematics : in honor of Jonathan Borwein's 60th Birthday by David H Bailey( Book )

5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The research of Jonathan Borwein has had a profound impact on optimization, functional analysis, operations research, mathematical programming, number theory, and experimental mathematics. Having authored more than a dozen books and more than 300 publications, Dr. Borwein is one of the most productive Canadian mathematicians ever. His research spans pure, applied, and computational mathematics as well as high performance computing, and continues to have an enormous impact: MathSciNet lists more than 2500 citations by more than 1250 authors, and Borwein is one of the 250 most cited mathematicians of the period 1980 1999. He has served the Canadian Mathematics Community through his presidency (2000 2002) as well as his 15 years of editing the CMS book series. Jonathan Borwein's vision and initiative have been crucial in initiating and developing several institutions that provide support for researchers with a wide range of scientific interests. A few notable examples include the Centre for Experimental and Constructive Mathematics and the IRMACS Centre at Simon Fraser University, the Dalhousie Distributed Research Institute at Dalhousie University, the Western Canada Research Grid, and the Centre for Computer Assisted Research Mathematics and its Applications, University of Newcastle. The workshops that were held over the years in Dr. Borwein's honor attracted high-caliber scientists from a wide range of mathematical fields. This present volume is an outgrowth of the workshop entitled Computational and Analytical Mathematics, held in May 2011 in celebration of Jonathan Borwein's 60th Birthday. The collection contains various state-of-the-art research manuscripts and surveys presenting contributions that have risen from the conference, and is an excellent opportunity to survey state-of-the-art research and discuss promising research directions and approaches
Biorthogonal systems in Banach spaces by Petr Hájek( )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The main theme of this book is the relation between the global structure of Banach spaces and the various types of generalized "coordinate systems"--Or "bases"--they possess. This subject is not new and has been investigated since the inception of the study of Banach spaces. In this book, the authors systematically investigate the concepts of Markushevich bases, fundamental systems, total systems and their variants. The material naturally splits into the case of separable Banach spaces, as is treated in the first two chapters, and the nonseparable case, which is covered in the remainder of the book. This book contains new results, and a substantial portion of this material has never before appeared in book form. The book will be of interest to both researchers and graduate students."--Jacket
