This book is a collection of short papers from the 11th International ISAAC Congress 2017 in Växjö, Sweden. The papers, written by the best international experts, are devoted to recent results in mathematics with a focus on analysis. The volume provides to both specialists and non-specialists an excellent source of information on the current research in mathematical analysis and its various interdisciplinary applications.
This textbook is intended for a one semester course in complex analysis for upper level undergraduates in mathematics. Applications, primary motivations for this text, are presented hand-in-hand with theory enabling this text to serve well in courses for students in engineering or applied sciences. The overall aim in designing this text is to accommodate students of different mathematical backgrounds and to achieve a balance between presentations of rigorous mathematical proofs and applications. The text is adapted to enable maximum flexibility to instructors and to students who may also choose to progress through the material outside of coursework. Detailed examples may be covered in one course, giving the instructor the option to choose those that are best suited for discussion. Examples showcase a variety of problems with completely worked out solutions, assisting students in working through the exercises. The numerous exercises vary in difficulty from simple applications of formulas to more advanced project-type problems. Detailed hints accompany the more challenging problems. Multi-part exercises may be assigned to individual students, to groups as projects, or serve as further illustrations for the instructor. Widely used graphics clarify both concrete and abstract concepts, helping students visualize the proofs of many results. Freely accessible solutions to every-other-odd exercise are posted to the book´s Springer website. Additional solutions for instructors´ use may be obtained by contacting the authors directly.
This book on functional analysis covers all the basics of the subject (normed, Banach and Hilbert spaces, Lebesgue integration and spaces, linear operators and functionals, compact and self-adjoint operators, small parameters, fixed point theory) with a strong focus on examples, exercises and practical problems, thus making it ideal as course material but also as a reference for self-study.
Massive compilation offers detailed, in-depth discussions of vector spaces, Hahn-Banach theorem, fixed-point theorems, duality theory, Krein-Milman theorem, theory of compact operators, much more. Many examples and exercises. 32-page bibliography. 1965 edition.
Burstein, and Lax´s Calculus with Applications and Computing offers meaningful explanations of the important theorems of single variable calculus. Written with students in mathematics, the physical sciences, and engineering in mind, and revised with their help, it shows that the themes of calculation, approximation, and modeling are central to mathematics and the main ideas of single variable calculus. This edition brings the innovation of the first edition to a new generation of students. New sections in this book use simple, elementary examples to show that when applying calculus concepts to approximations of functions, uniform convergence is more natural and easier to use than point-wise convergence. As in the original, this edition includes material that is essential for students in science and engineering, including an elementary introduction to complex numbers and complex-valued functions, applications of calculus to modeling vibrations and population dynamics, and an introduction to probability and information theory.
This volume encompasses prototypical, innovative and emerging examples and benchmarks of Differential-Algebraic Equations (DAEs) and their applications, such as electrical networks, chemical reactors, multibody systems, and multiphysics models, to name but a few. Each article begins with an exposition of modelling, explaining whether the model is prototypical and for which applications it is used. This is followed by a mathematical analysis, and if appropriate, a discussion of the numerical aspects including simulation. Additionally, benchmark examples are included throughout the text. Mathematicians, engineers, and other scientists, working in both academia and industry either on differential-algebraic equations and systems or on problems where the tools and insight provided by differential-algebraic equations could be useful, would find this book resourceful.
Intended for students with a beginning knowledge of mathematical analysis, this first volume, in a three-part introduction to Fourier analysis, introduces the core areas of mathematical analysis while also illustrating the organic unity between them. It includes numerous examples and applications.
This book is an in-depth and modern presentation of important classical results in complex analysis and is suitable for a first course on the topic, as taught by the authors at several universities. The level of difficulty of the material increases gradually from chapter to chapter, and each chapter contains many exercises with solutions and applications of the results, with the particular goal of showcasing a variety of solution techniques.
This new edition is intended for third and fourth year undergraduates in Engineering, Physics, Mathematics, and the Applied Sciences, and can serve as a springboard for further work in Continuum Mechanics or General Relativity. Starting from a basic knowledge of calculus and matrix algebra, together with fundamental ideas from mechanics and geometry, the text gradually develops the tools for formulating and manipulating the field equations of Continuum Mechanics. The mathematics of tensor analysis is introduced in well-separated stages: the concept of a tensor as an operator; the representation of a tensor in terms of its Cartesian components; the components of a tensor relative to a general basis, tensor notation, and finally, tensor calculus. The physical interpretation and application of vectors and tensors are stressed throughout. Though concise, the text is written in an informal, non-intimidating style enhanced by worked-out problems and a meaningful variety of exercises. The new edition includes more exercises, especially at the end of chapter IV. Furthermore, the author has appended a section on Differential Geometry, the essential mathematical tool in the study of the 2-dimensional structural shells and 4-dimensional general relativity.
