Designed for one-semester courses at the senior undergraduate level, this book is written for mathematics students and teachers, as well as others needing to learn mathematical analysis for engineering, physics, biology or finance. Nominal divisions between pure and applied mathematics have been merged to provide easier access. Applications are included from differential and integral equations, systems of linear algebraic equations, approximation... more...
Algebraic geometry is often employed to encode and decode signals transmitted in communication systems. This book describes the fundamental principles of algebraic coding theory from the perspective of an engineer, discussing a number of applications in communications and signal processing. The principal concept is that of using algebraic curves over finite fields to construct error-correcting codes. The most recent developments are presented including... more...
This is the only book on the topic of geometric configurations of points and lines. It presents in detail the history of the topic, with its surges and declines since its beginning in 1876. It covers all the advances in the field since the revival of interest in geometric configurations some 20 years ago. The author's contributions are central to this revival. In particular, he initiated the study of 4-configurations (that is, those that contain four... more...
This up-to-date survey of the whole field of topology is the flagship of the topology subseries of the Encyclopaedia. The book gives an overview of various subfields, beginning with the elements and proceeding right up to the present frontiers of research.
Rationality problems link algebra to geometry, and the difficulties involved depend on the transcendence degree of $K$ over $k$, or geometrically, on the dimension of the variety. A major success in 19th century algebraic geometry was a complete solution of the rationality problem in dimensions one and two over algebraically closed ground fields of characteristic zero. Such advances has led to many interdisciplinary applications to... more...
This book aims to provide a valuable source, which focuses on interdisciplinary methods and affiliate research in the area of Geometric Modeling and Graphics. It aims to provide the user community with a variety of Geometric Modeling techniques, applications, systems and tools necessary for various real life problems in areas such as Designing objects, Medical Visualization, Scientific Data Visualization, Archaeology, Toon Rendering, Virtual Reality,... more...
Applied Mathematics: Body & Soul is a mathematics education reform project developed at Chalmers University of Technology and includes a series of volumes and software. The program is motivated by the computer revolution opening new possibilitites of computational mathematical modeling in mathematics, science and engineering. It consists of a synthesis of Mathematical Analysis (Soul), Numerical Computation (Body) and Application.... more...
This collection of original papers related to the Israeli GAFA seminar (on Geometric Aspects of Functional Analysis) during the years 2004-2005 reflects the general trends of the theory and are a source of inspiration for research. Most of the papers deal with different aspects of the Asymptotic Geometric Analysis, ranging from classical topics in the geometry of convex bodies to the study of sections or projections of convex bodies.
Modern theory of elliptic operators, or simply elliptic theory, has been shaped by the Atiyah-Singer Index Theorem created 40 years ago. Reviewing elliptic theory over a broad range, 32 leading scientists from 14 different countries present recent developments in topology; heat kernel techniques; spectral invariants and cutting and pasting; noncommutative geometry; and theoretical particle, string and membrane physics, and Hamiltonian dynamics. The... more...
This is the first systematic account of the main results in the theory of lightlike submanifolds of semi-Riemannian manifolds which have a geometric structure, such as almost Hermitian, almost contact metric or quaternion Kähler. Using these structures, the book presents interesting classes of submanifolds whose geometry is very rich. The book also includes hypersurfaces of semi-Riemannian manifolds, their use in general relativity... more...
