The mathematical works of Bernard Bolzano by Bernard Bolzano( Book )

12 editions published in 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Bernard Bolzano (1781-1848, Prague) was a remarkable thinker and reformer far ahead of his time in many areas, including philosophy, theology, ethics, politics, logic, and mathematics. Aimed at historians and philosophers of both mathematics and logic, and research students in those fields, this volume contains English translations, in most cases for the first time, of many of Bolzano's most significant mathematical writings."--Jacket
Hermann Graßmann : from past to future: Graßmann's Work in Context; Graßmann Bicentennial Conference, September 2009 by Grassmann bicentennial Conference( Book )

Hermann Grassmann from past to future : Grassmann's work in context by Hans-Joachim Petsche( )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On the occasion of the 200th anniversary of the birth of Hermann Graßmann (1809-1877), an interdisciplinary conference was held in Potsdam, Germany, and in Graßmann's hometown Szczecin, Poland. The idea of the conference was to present a multi-faceted picture of Graßmann, and to uncover the complexity of the factors that were responsible for his creativity. The conference demonstrated not only the very influential reception of his work at the turn of the 20th century, but also the unexpected modernity of his ideas, and their continuing development in the 21st century. This book contains 37 papers presented at the conference. They investigate the significance of Graßmann's work for philosophical as well as for scientific and methodological questions, for comparative philology in general and for Indology in particular, for psychology, physiology, religious studies, musicology, didactics, and, last but not least, mathematics. In addition, the book contains numerous illustrations and English translations of original sources, which are published here for the first time. These include life histories of Graßmann (written by his son Justus) and of his brother Robert (written by Robert himself), as well as the paper "On the concept and extent of pure theory of number'' by Justus Graßmann (the father). In November 2010 the capital of the federal state of Brandenburg (Germany) chose the Graßmann Conference as the first-time winner of the Potsdam Conference-Award in the category "Innovative and/or exceptional events
The interpretation of states : a new foundation for computation? by Meurig Beynon( Book )

2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To this end, we reconsider fundamental issues concerning the nature of computation and its relationship to mathematics and cognition. In particular, we shall explain how computation has to be understood with reference to physical processes that are perceived to undergo changes of state, conceptual methods for interpreting state changes in computational terms. Brief references to our work on agent-oriented programming using definition-based representations of state will be used to explain our thesis."

Hermann Graßmann : biography by Hans-Joachim Petsche( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Hermann Günther Graßmann was one of the most remarkable personalities in 19th-century science. A "small-town genius", he developed a groundbreaking n-dimensional algebra of space and contributed to a revolution in the understanding of mathematics. His work fascinated great mathematicians such as W.R. Hamilton, J.W. Gibbs and A.N. Whitehead. This intellectual biography traces Graßmann{u2019}s steps towards scientific brilliance by untangling a complicated web of influences: the force of unsolved problems in mathematics, Friedrich Schleiermacher{u2019}s Dialectic, German Romanticism and life in 19th-century Prussia. The book also introduces the reader to the details of Graßmann{u2019}s mathematical work without neglecting his achievements in Sanskrit philology and physics. And, for the first time, it makes many original sources accessible to the English-language reader
Effect of Al Content on Microstructure/Phase Distribution and Strength/Ductility in a PM Gamma Alloy (Preprint)( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The strength and ductility variation of TiAl alloys with variations of microstructure and composition are quite complicated and, possible interactions between these effects exist. For example, Al is known to affect strength and the variation in volume fraction of gamma and alpha-2 phases have been credited with the effect. However, the impact of composition versus phase fraction and microconstitutent fraction has not been satisfactorily quantified, especially for multi-element compositions. In an effort to understand such effects, four billets of gamma alloy 03K, nominal composition of Ti-45.5Al-3Nb-1Cr-0.2W-0.2B-0.4C-0.2Si (at%), were produced from gas-atomized powder. The actual Al content varied between 44.8 and 47.4 at%. The forgings were heat treated to develop three microstructural variants: fully lamellar, nearly lamellar and duplex. The microstructure and Rockwell C hardness were analyzed on all samples, and room-temperature tensile testing was conducted on the fully-lamellar materials. The resulting strength and ductility as a function of Al content and microstructure will be discussed
