This is a logically self-contained introduction to analysis, suitable for students who have had two years of calculus. The book centers around those properties that have to do with uniform convergence and uniform limits in the context of differentiation and integration. Topics discussed include the classical test for convergence of series, Fourier series, polynomial approximation, the Poisson kernel, the construction of harmonic functions on the disc, ordinary differential equation, curve integrals, derivatives in vector spaces, multiple integrals, and others. In this second edition, the author has added a new chapter on locally integrable vector fields, has rewritten many sections and expanded others. There are new sections on heat kernels in the context of Dirac families and on the completion of normed vector spaces. A proof of the fundamental lemma of Lebesgue integration is included, in addition to many interesting exercises.
A brand new appendix by Oscar Garcia-Prada graces this third edition of a classic work. In developing the tools necessary for the study of complex manifolds, this comprehensive, well-organized treatment presents in its opening chapters a detailed survey of recent progress in four areas: geometry (manifolds with vector bundles), algebraic topology, differential geometry, and partial differential equations. Wells´s superb analysis also gives details of the Hodge-Riemann bilinear relations on Kahler manifolds, Griffiths´s period mapping, quadratic transformations, and Kodaira´s vanishing and embedding theorems. Oscar Garcia-Prada´s appendix gives an overview of the developments in the field during the decades since the book appeared.
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.
This is a new, revised edition of this widely known text. All of the basic topics in calculus of several variables are covered, including vectors, curves, functions of several variables, gradient, tangent plane, maxima and minima, potential functions, curve integrals, Green´s theorem, multiple integrals, surface integrals, Stokes´ theorem, and the inverse mapping theorem and its consequences. The presentation is self-contained, assuming only a knowledge of basic calculus in one variable. Many completely worked-out problems have been included.
This book presents the basic concepts and recent developments of linear control problems with perturbations. The presentation concerns both continuous and discrete dynamical systems. It is self-contained and illustrated by numerous examples. From the contents: Notion of state observers Observability Observers of full-phase vectors for fully determined linear systems Functional observers for fully determined linear systems Asymptotic observers for linear systems with uncertainty Observers for bilinear and discrete systems
