Nexus Network Journal: Canons of Form-Making In Honour of Andrea Palladio 1508–2008 by Stephen R. Wassell
English | PDF | 2008 | 167 Pages | ISBN : 3764387653 | 14.7 MB

This volume features a collection of papers dedicated to "Canons of Form-Making", in honor of the 500th anniversary of the birth of architect Andrea Palladio (1508-1580). Theorist as well as practitioner, Palladio's architecture was based on well-defined canons that he had gleaned from studying the treatises as well as the remains of architecture from antiquity. Palladio himself left to posterity not only his large corpus of built works, but his Quattro libri d'architettura. Three of the papers in this issue are specifically about Palladio and his work. The other papers deal with canons of form-making, ancient and contemporary.

Theorems and Counterexamples in Mathematics

Theorems and Counterexamples in Mathematics by Bernard R. Gelbaum
English | PDF | 1990 | 339 Pages | ISBN : 0387973427 | 24.7 MB

The gratifying response to Counterexamples in analysis (CEA) was followed, when the book went out of print, by expressions of dismay from those who were unable to acquire it. The connection of the present volume with CEA is clear, although the sights here are set higher. In the quarter-century since the appearance of CEA, mathematical education has taken some large steps reflected in both the undergraduate and graduate curricula. What was once taken as very new, remote, or arcane is now a well-established part of mathematical study and discourse.

Contests in Higher Mathematics: Miklós Schweitzer Competitions 1962–1991 by Gábor J. Székely
English | PDF | 1996 | 576 Pages | ISBN : 0387945881 | 45.7 MB

One of the most effective ways to stimulate students to enjoy intellectual efforts is the scientific competition. In 1894 the Hungarian Mathematical and Physical Society introduced a mathematical competition for high school students.

Hypercomputation: Computing Beyond the Church-Turing Barrier

Hypercomputation: Computing Beyond the Church-Turing Barrier by Apostolos Syropoulos
English | PDF | 2008 | 253 Pages | ISBN : 0387308865 | 2.3 MB

Hypercomputation is a relatively new theory of computation which treats computing methods and devices that transcend the Church-Turing thesis. This book will provide a thorough description of the field of hypercomputation, covering all attempts at devising conceptual hypermachines and all new promising computational paradigms that may eventually lead to the construction of a hypermachine.

Dynamics of Algorithms

Dynamics of Algorithms by Rafael de la Llave
English | PDF | 2000 | 150 Pages | ISBN : 038798920X | 17.6 MB

The articles collected in this volume represent the contributions presented at the IMA workshop on "Dynamics of Algorithms" which took place in November 1997. The workshop was an integral part of the 1997 -98 IMA program on "Emerging Applications of Dynamical Systems." The interaction between algorithms and dynamical systems is mutually beneficial since dynamical methods can be used to study algorithms that are applied repeatedly.

Elements of Noncommutative Geometry

Elements of Noncommutative Geometry by José M. Gracia-Bondía
English | PDF | 2001 | 692 Pages | ISBN : 0817641246 | 55.2 MB

Our purpose and main concern in writing this book is to illuminate classical concepts from the noncommutative viewpoint, to make the language and techniques of noncommutative geometry accessible and familiar to practi­ tioners of classical mathematics, and to benefit physicists interested in the uses of noncommutative spaces. Same may say that ours is a very "com­ mutative" way to deal with noncommutative matters; this charge we readily admit.

Isogeometric Analysis and Applications 2014 By Bert Jüttler, Bernd Simeon
English | PDF | 2015 | 290 Pages | ISBN : 3319233149 | 10.2 MB

Isogeometric Analysis is a groundbreaking computational approach that promises the possibility of integrating the finite element method into conventional spline-based CAD design tools. It thus bridges the gap between numerical analysis and geometry, and moreover it allows to tackle new cutting edge applications at the frontiers of research in science and engineering.

A Differential Approach to Geometry: Geometric Trilogy III by Francis Borceux
English | PDF(True) | 2013 | 462 Pages | ISBN : 3319017357 | 24 MB

This book presents the classical theory of curves in the plane and three-dimensional space, and the classical theory of surfaces in three-dimensional space. It pays particular attention to the historical development of the theory and the preliminary approaches that support contemporary geometrical notions. It includes a chapter that lists a very wide scope of plane curves and their properties.

Non-Euclidean Laguerre Geometry and Incircular Nets

Non-Euclidean Laguerre Geometry and Incircular Nets by Alexander I. Bobenko
English | PDF,EPUB | 2021 | 142 Pages | ISBN : 3030818462 | 41.8 MB

This textbook is a comprehensive and yet accessible introduction to non-Euclidean Laguerre geometry, for which there exists no previous systematic presentation in the literature. Moreover, we present new results by demonstrating all essential features of Laguerre geometry on the example of checkerboard incircular nets.

Handbook of Mathematical Models in Computer Vision By Nikos Paragios, Yunmei Chen, Olivier Faugeras
English | PDF | 2006 | 612 Pages | ISBN : 0387263713 | 316.8 MB

Visual perception refers to the ability of understanding the visual information that is provided by the environment. Such a mechanism integrates several human abilities and was studied by many researchers with different scientific origins including philosophy, physiology, biology, neurobiology, mathematics and engineering.

Felix Klein: Visions for Mathematics, Applications, and Education by Renate Tobies
English | PDF | 2021 | 697 Pages | ISBN : 3030757846 | 45.1 MB

About Felix Klein, the famous Greek mathematician Constantin Carathéodory once said: “It is only by illuminating him from all angles that one can come to understand his significance.” The author of this biography has done just this. A detailed study of original sources has made it possible to uncover new connections; to create a more precise representation of this important mathematician, scientific organizer, and educational reformer; and to identify misconceptions.
