Often calculus and mechanics are taught as separate subjects. It
shouldn't be like that. Learning calculus without mechanics is
incredibly boring. Learning mechanics without calculus is missing
the point. This textbook integrates both subjects and highlights
the profound connections between them.
This is the deal. Give me 350 pages of your attention, and I'll
teach you everything you need to know about functions, limits,
derivatives,... more...

MVP Conrad Carlberg shows how to use Excel’s regression-related
worksheet functions to perform a wide spectrum of practical
analyses.
Carlberg clearly explains all the theory you’ll... more...

An elegant primer on the principles and theories of
music.
This innovative book presents the elements of music by building
upon the long-known fundamentals of acoustics, proportion and
relationship--a kind of musical metaphor. In combination with
novel graphics and symbols, the principles behind melody,
rhythm, and harmony come alive, along with those of Western
musical notation. From intervals, triads, and the... more...

Alan Turing (1912-1954) made seminal contributions to mathematical
logic, computation, computer science, artificial intelligence,
cryptography and theoretical biology. In this volume, outstanding
scientific thinkers take a fresh look at the great range of
Turing's contributions, on how the subjects have developed since
his time, and how they might develop still further. The
contributors include Martin Davis, J. M. E. Hyland, Andrew R.
Booker, Ueli... more...

Inequalities in Analysis and Probability is a must for
graduate students and researchers with basic knowledge of
Probability and Integration Theory. It introduces classical
inequalities in vector and functional spaces with applications to
probability. It also develops new extensions of the analytical
inequalities, with sharper bounds and generalizations to the sum or
the supremum of random variables, to martingales and to transformed
Brownian motions.... more...

The authors who brought you the bestseller in game theory, Thinking Strategically, now provide the long-awaited sequel.Game theory means rigorous strategic thinking. It's the art of anticipating your opponent's next moves, knowing full well that your rival is trying to do the same thing to you. Though parts of game theory involve simple common sense, much is counterintuitive, and it can only be mastered by developing a new way of seeing the... more...

This book focuses on the unifying power of the geometrical language
in bringing together concepts from many different areas of physics,
ranging from classical physics to the theories describing the four
fundamental interactions of Nature — gravitational,
electromagnetic, strong nuclear, and weak nuclear.The book provides
in a single volume a thorough introduction to topology and
differential geometry, as well as many applications to both
mathematical... more...

If you know a little bit about financial mathematics but don’t
yet know a lot about programming, then C++ for Financial
Mathematics is for you.
C++ is an essential skill for many jobs in quantitative finance,
but learning it can be a daunting prospect. This book gathers
together everything you need to know to price derivatives in C++
without unnecessary complexities or technicalities. It leads the
reader step-by-step from... more...

Praise for the first edition:
"The well-written, comprehensive book…[is] aiming to become a de
facto reference for the language and its features and
capabilities. The pace is appropriate for beginners; programming
concepts are introduced progressively through a range of examples
and then used as tools for building applications in various
domains, including sophisticated data structures and
algorithms…Highly recommended. Students... more...

The second edition of this book deals, as the first, with the
foundations of classical physics from the 'symplectic' point of
view, and of quantum mechanics from the 'metaplectic' point of
view. We have revised and augmented the topics studied in the first
edition in the light of new results, and added several new
sections. The Bohmian interpretation of quantum mechanics is
discussed in detail. Phase space quantization is achieved using the
'principle... more...
