This lively introductory text exposes the student to the rewards of a rigorous study of functions of a real variable. In each chapter, informal discussions of questions that give analysis its inherent fascination are followed by precise, but not overly formal, developments of the techniques needed to make sense of them. By focusing on the unifying themes of approximation and the resolution of paradoxes that arise in the transition from the finite to the infinite, the text turns what could be a daunting cascade of definitions and theorems into a coherent and engaging progression of ideas. Acutely aware of the need for rigor, the student is much better prepared to understand what constitutes a proper mathematical proof and how to write one. Fifteen years of classroom experience with the first edition of Understanding Analysis have solidified and refined the central narrative of the second edition. Roughly 150 new exercises join a selection of the best exercises from the first edition, and three more project-style sections have been added. Investigations of Euler´s computation of ?(2), the Weierstrass Approximation Theorem, and the gamma function are now among the book´s cohort of seminal results serving as motivation and payoff for the beginning student to master the methods of analysis. Review of the first edition: ´´This is a dangerous book. Understanding Analysis is so well-written and the development of the theory so well-motivated that exposing students to it could well lead them to expect such excellence in all their textbooks. ... Understanding Analysis is perfectly titled; if your students read it, that´s what´s going to happen. ... This terrific book will become the text of choice for the single-variable introductory analysis course ... ´´ - Steve Kennedy, MAA Reviews
Many veterinary medicine researchers have performed discriminant analysis and other statistical techniques However, understanding the way of application of discriminant analysis and other statistical techniques are unknown to them. So, we attempt to give them different models for application of discriminant analysis in veterinary research and how to interrupt the results of these models. We also include a partial review of corresponding work done.
Understanding the concepts and methods of real analysis is an essential skill for every undergraduate mathematics student. Written in an easy-to-read style, Real Analysis is a comprehensive introduction to this core subject and is ideal for self-study or as a course textbook for first and second-year undergraduates. Combining an informal style with precision mathematics, Real Analysis covers all the key topics with fully worked examples and exercises with solutions. Featuring: Sequences and series - considering the central notion of a limit.- Continuous functions.- Differentiation.- Integration.- Logarithmic and exponential functions.- Uniform convergence.- Circular functions All these concepts and techniques are deployed in examples in the final chapter to provide the student with a thorough understanding of this challenging subject.
This book explores several important aspects of recent developments in the interdisciplinary applications of mathematical analysis (MA), and highlights how MA is now being employed in many areas of scientific research. Each of the 23 carefully reviewed chapters was written by experienced expert(s) in respective field, and will enrich readers´ understanding of the respective research problems, providing them with sufficient background to understand the theories, methods and applications discussed. The book´s main goal is to highlight the latest trends and advances, equipping interested readers to pursue further research of their own. Given its scope, the book will especially benefit graduate and PhD students, researchers in the applied sciences, educators, and engineers with an interest in recent developments in the interdisciplinary applications of mathematical analysis.
This book provides a systematic introduction to functions of one complex variable. Its novel feature is the consistent use of special color representations - so-called phase portraits - which visualize functions as images on their domains. Reading Visual Complex Functions requires no prerequisites except some basic knowledge of real calculus and plane geometry. The text is self-contained and covers all the main topics usually treated in a first course on complex analysis. With separate chapters on various construction principles, conformal mappings and Riemann surfaces it goes somewhat beyond a standard programme and leads the reader to more advanced themes. In a second storyline, running parallel to the course outlined above, one learns how properties of complex functions are reflected in and can be read off from phase portraits. The book contains more than 200 of these pictorial representations which endow individual faces to analytic functions. Phase portraits enhance the intuitive understanding of concepts in complex analysis and are expected to be useful tools for anybody working with special functions - even experienced researchers may be inspired by the pictures to new and challenging questions. Visual Complex Functions may also serve as a companion to other texts or as a reference work for advanced readers who wish to know more about phase portraits.

The book extends the high school curriculum and provides a backdrop for later study in calculus, modern algebra, numerical analysis, and complex variable theory. Exercises introduce many techniques and topics in the theory of equations, such as evolution and factorization of polynomials, solution of equations, interpolation, approximation, and congruences. The theory is not treated formally, but rather illustrated through examples. Over 300 problems drawn from journals, contests, and examinations test understanding, ingenuity, and skill. Each chapter ends with a list of hints; there are answers to many of the exercises and solutions to all of the problems. In addition, 69 ´´explorations´´ invite the reader to investigate research problems and related topics.
Outstanding undergraduate text provides a thorough understanding of fundamentals and creates the basis for higher-level courses. Numerous examples and extensive exercise sections of varying difficulty, plus answers to selected exercises. 1990 edition.
This book, first published in 2002, contains an introduction to hyperbolic partial differential equations and a powerful class of numerical methods for approximating their solution, including both linear problems and nonlinear conservation laws. This provides an excellent learning environment for understanding wave propagation phenomena and finite volume methods.
