STANISLAW MARCIN ULAM, or Stan as his friends called him, was one of those great creative mathematicians whose interests ranged not only over all fields of mathematics, but over the physical and biological sciences as well. Like his good friend "Johnny" von Neumann, and unlike so many of his peers, Ulam is unclassifiable as a pure or applied mathematician. He never ceased to find as much beauty and excitement in the applications of mathematics as in working in those rarefied regions where there is a total un­ concern with practical problems. In his Adventures of a Mathematician Ulam recalls playing on an oriental carpet when he was four. The curious patterns fascinated him. When his father smiled, Ulam remembers thinking: "He smiles because he thinks I am childish, but I know these are curious patterns. I know something my father does not know." The incident goes to the heart of Ulam's genius. He could see quickly, in flashes of brilliant insight, curious patterns that other mathematicians could not see. "I am the type that likes to start new things rather than improve or elaborate," he wrote. "I cannot claim that I know much of the technical material of mathematics

Mathematics and logic by Mark Kac( Book )

25 editions published between 1968 and 1992 in 3 languages and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A description of the historical development of mathematics with a brief survey of high points and trenchant influences, originally published in 1986 by Praeger. A remarkable bargain. Fascinating study considers the origins and nature of mathematics, its development and role in the history of scientific thinking, impact of high-speed computers, 20th-century changes in the foundations of mathematics and mathematical logic, mathematization of science and technology, much more. Compelling reading for mathematicians, physicists, students--anyone interested in the evolution of mathematical thought. 34 illustrations. 1968 edition

Generalized analytic functions by I. N Vekua( )

2 editions published between 1962 and 2015 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Generalized Analytic Functions is concerned with foundations of the general theory of generalized analytic functions and some applications to problems of differential geometry and theory of shells. Some classes of functions and operators are discussed, along with the reduction of a positive differential quadratic form to the canonical form. Boundary value problems and infinitesimal bendings of surfaces are also considered.<br><br>Comprised of six chapters, this volume begins with a detailed treatment of various problems of the general theory of generalized analytic functions as as well as boun

Direct and converse theorems : the elements of symbolic logic by I. S Gradshteĭn( )

2 editions published between 1963 and 2014 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Direct and Converse Theorems: The Elements of Symbolic Logic, Third Edition explains the logical relations between direct, converse, inverse, and inverse converse theorems, as well as the concept of necessary and sufficient conditions. This book consists of two chapters. The first chapter is devoted to the question of negation. Connected with the question of the negation of a proposition are interrelations of the direct and converse and also of the direct and inverse theorems; the interrelations of necessary and sufficient conditions; and the definition of the locus of a point. The second chap

2 editions published between 1963 and 2015 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mathematical Techniques of Operational Research is a seven-chapter text that covers the principles and applications of various mathematical tools and models to for operational research.<br><br>Chapter I provides the basic mathematical ideas used in later chapters. Chapters II and III deal with linear programming, including the special cases of transportation and assignment, as well as their applications such as the Trim Problem. Chapters IV and V discuss the theory of queues and describe the general stationary properties of the single-channel queue, and of simple queues in series and in parall
