The Magic of Math: Solving for x and Figuring Out Why by Arthur Benjamin

By Arthur Benjamin

The Magic of Math is the mathematics ebook you need you had at school. utilizing a pleasant collection of examples—from ice cream scoops and poker palms to measuring mountains and making magic squares—this ebook empowers you to work out the wonder, simplicity, and really magical homes at the back of these formulation and equations that after left your head spinning. You'll study the major rules of vintage parts of arithmetic like mathematics, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and calculus, yet you'll even have enjoyable playing around with Fibonacci numbers, investigating infinity, and marveling over mathematical magic methods that would make you appear to be a math genius!
A mathematician who's identified in the course of the global because the “mathemagician," Arthur Benjamin mixes arithmetic and magic to make the topic enjoyable, beautiful, and straightforward to appreciate. In The Magic of Math, Benjamin does greater than simply educate talents: with a tip of his magic hat, he's taking you on as his apprentice to educate you the way to understand math the best way he does. He motivates you to profit whatever new approximately tips to resolve for x, simply because there's genuine excitement to be present in the answer to a demanding challenge or in utilizing numbers to do anything beneficial. yet what he particularly desires you to do is manage to determine why, for that's the place you'll locate the genuine attractiveness, strength, and magic of math.
If you're already an individual who likes math, this publication will dazzle and amuse you. when you by no means quite cherished or understood math, Benjamin will enlighten you and—with a wave of his magic wand—turn you right into a math lover.

Advanced Mathematical and Computational Tools in Metrology by P. Ciarlini, M. G. Cox, F. Pavese, G. B. Rossi

By P. Ciarlini, M. G. Cox, F. Pavese, G. B. Rossi

This quantity collects refereed contributions in response to the shows made on the 6th Workshop on complex Mathematical and Computational instruments in Metrology, held on the Istituto di Metrologia "G. Colonnetti" (IMGC), Torino, Italy, in September 2003. It presents a discussion board for metrologists, mathematicians and software program engineers that might motivate a more suitable synthesis of abilities, services and assets, and promotes collaboration within the context of european programmes, EUROMET and EA tasks, and MRA necessities. It includes articles via a massive, all over the world crew of metrologists and mathematicians concerned with dimension technological know-how and, including the 5 prior volumes during this sequence, constitutes an authoritative resource for the mathematical, statistical and software program instruments essential to smooth metrology.

Representation Theory of Finite Reductive Groups (New by Marc Cabanes, Michel Enguehard

By Marc Cabanes, Michel Enguehard

On the crossroads of illustration concept, algebraic geometry and finite team concept, this publication blends jointly some of the major matters of recent algebra, synthesising the previous 25 years of study, with complete proofs of a few of the main striking achievements within the quarter. Cabanes and Enguehard keep on with 3 major issues: first, functions of étale cohomology, resulting in the evidence of the new Bonnafé-Rouquier theorems. the second one is an easy and simplified account of the Dipper-James theorems pertaining to irreducible characters and modular representations. the ultimate topic is neighborhood illustration thought. one of many major effects here's the authors' model of Fong-Srinivasan theorems. through the textual content is illustrated by way of many examples and historical past is supplied by means of numerous introductory chapters on easy effects and appendices on algebraic geometry and derived different types. the result's a vital advent for graduate scholars and reference for all algebraists.

Averaging Methods in Nonlinear Dynamical Systems by Antman S. S., Marsden J. E., Sirovich L.

By Antman S. S., Marsden J. E., Sirovich L.

Perturbation idea and specifically general shape concept has proven robust progress over the last many years. So it isn't magnificent that the authors have awarded an intensive revision of the 1st variation of Averaging tools in Nonlinear Dynamical platforms. there are lots of alterations, corrections and updates in chapters on easy fabric and Asymptotics, Averaging, and charm. Chapters on Periodic Averaging and Hyperbolicity, Classical (first point) basic shape idea, Nilpotent (classical) common shape, and better point basic shape conception are totally new and characterize new insights in averaging, specifically its relation with dynamical structures and the idea of standard types. additionally new are surveys on invariant manifolds in Appendix C and averaging for PDEs in Appendix E. because the first version, the publication has accelerated in size and the 3rd writer, James Murdock, has been further.
