This book is intended for those who are familiar with first year
calculus, written by an author with four decades of teaching
experience. It presents some very unique problem situations not
available in ordinary textbooks. Many are original contributions
among which are the articles on the Weight Watcher Function,
collection of rooftop solar energy, measuring very hot
temperatures, highway speed surveillance, and determining the
rotational speeds of... more...

Geometry & Trigonometry for Calculus By Peter H. Selby If you
need geometry and trigonometry as a tool for technical work … as a
refresher course … or as a prerequisite for calculus, here’s a
quick, efficient way for you to learn it! With this book, you can
teach yourself the fundamentals of plane geometry, trigonometry,
and analytic geometry … and learn how these topics relate to what
you already know about algebra and what you’d like to... more...

Optimal Solution of Nonlinear Equations is a text/monograph designed to provide an overview of optimal computational methods for the solution of nonlinear equations, fixed points of contractive and noncontractive mapping, and for the computation of the topological degree. It is of interest to any reader working in the area of Information-Based Complexity. The worst-case settings are analyzed here. Several classes of functions are studied with special... more...

This book deals with a class of mathematical problems which involve the minimization of the sum of a volume and a surface energy and have lately been referred to as 'free discontinuity problems'. The aim of this book is twofold: The first three chapters present all the basic prerequisites for the treatment of free discontinuity and other variational problems in a systematic, general, and self-contained way. In the later chapters, the reader is... more...

Convexity is an ancient idea going back to Archimedes. Used
sporadically in the mathematical literature over the centuries,
today it is a flourishing area of research and a mathematical
subject in its own right. Convexity is used in optimization
theory, functional analysis, complex analysis, and other parts of
mathematics.
Convex Analysis introduces analytic tools for studying
convexity and provides analytical applications of the... more...

This book is meant as a text for a first-year graduate course in
analysis. In a sense, the subject matter covers the same topics as
elementary calculus - linear algebra, differentiation, integration
- but it is treated in a manner suitable for people who will be
using it in further mathematical investigations. The book begins
with point-set topology, essential for all analysis. The second
part deals with the two basic spaces of analysis, Banach and... more...

Now in its fifth edition, Vector Calculus helps students
gain an intuitive and solid understanding of this important
subject. The book's careful account is a contemporary balance
between theory, application, and historical development,
providing it's readers with an insight into how mathematics
progresses and is in turn influenced by the natural world.

Quantum mechanics and the theory of operators on Hilbert space have
been deeply linked since their beginnings in the early twentieth
century. States of a quantum system correspond to certain elements
of the configuration space and observables correspond to certain
operators on the space. This book is a brief, but self-contained,
introduction to the mathematical methods of quantum mechanics, with
a view towards applications to Schrodinger operators.... more...
