Spectral Geometry of Partial Differential Operators (Open Access)

Spectral Geometry of Partial Differential Operators (Open Access)

The aim of Spectral Geometry of Partial Differential Operators is to provide a basic and self-contained introduction to the ideas underpinning spectral geometric inequalities arising in the theory of partial differential equations. Historically, one of the first inequalities of the spectral geometry was the minimization problem of the first eigenvalue of the Dirichlet Laplacian. Nowadays, this type of inequalities of spectral geometry have expanded to many other cases with number of applications in physics and other sciences. The main reason why the results are useful, beyond the intrinsic interest of geometric extremum problems, is that they produce a priori bounds for spectral invariants of (partial differential) operators on arbitrary domains. Features: Collects the ideas underpinning the inequalities of the spectral geometry, in both self-adjoint and non-self-adjoint operator theory, in a way accessible by anyone with a basic level of understanding of linear differential operators Aimed at theoretical as well as applied mathematicians, from a wide range of scientific fields, including acoustics, astronomy, MEMS, and other physical sciences Provides a step-by-step guide to the techniques of non-self-adjoint partial differential operators, and for the applications of such methods. Provides a self-contained coverage of the traditional and modern theories of linear partial differential operators, and does not require a previous background in operator theory.

Introductory Analysis An Inquiry Approach

Introductory Analysis An Inquiry Approach

Author: John D. Ross, Kendall C. Richards Format: Hardback Release Date: 14/02/2020

Introductory Analysis: An Inquiry Approach aims to provide a self-contained, inquiry-oriented approach to undergraduate-level real analysis. The presentation of the material in the book is intended to be inquiry-oriented' in that as each major topic is discussed, details of the proofs are left to the student in a way that encourages an active approach to learning. The book is self-contained in two major ways: it includes scaffolding (i.e., brief guiding prompts marked as Key Steps in the Proof) for many of the theorems. Second, it includes preliminary material that introduces students to the fundamental framework of logical reasoning and proof-writing techniques. Students will be able to use the guiding prompts (and refer to the preliminary work) to develop their proof-writing skills. Features Structured in such a way that approximately one week of class can be devoted to each chapter Suitable as a primary text for undergraduates, or as a supplementary text for some postgraduate courses Strikes a unique balance between enquiry-based learning and more traditional approaches to teaching

Effective Data Storytelling How to Drive Change with Data, Narrative and Visuals

Effective Data Storytelling How to Drive Change with Data, Narrative and Visuals

Author: Brent Dykes Format: Hardback Release Date: 12/02/2020

Master the art and science of data storytelling--with frameworks and techniques to help you craft compelling stories with data. The ability to effectively communicate with data is no longer a luxury in today's economy; it is a necessity. Transforming data into visual communication is only one part of the picture. It is equally important to engage your audience with a narrative--to tell a story with the numbers. Effective Data Storytelling will teach you the essential skills necessary to communicate your insights through persuasive and memorable data stories. Narratives are more powerful than raw statistics, more enduring than pretty charts. When done correctly, data stories can influence decisions and drive change. Most other books focus only on data visualization while neglecting the powerful narrative and psychological aspects of telling stories with data. Author Brent Dykes shows you how to take the three central elements of data storytelling--data, narrative, and visuals--and combine them for maximum effectiveness. Taking a comprehensive look at all the elements of data storytelling, this unique book will enable you to: Transform your insights and data visualizations into appealing, impactful data stories Learn the fundamental elements of a data story and key audience drivers Understand the differences between how the brain processes facts and narrative Structure your findings as a data narrative, using a four-step storyboarding process Incorporate the seven essential principles of better visual storytelling into your work Avoid common data storytelling mistakes by learning from historical and modern examples Effective Data Storytelling: How to Drive Change with Data, Narrative and Visuals is a must-have resource for anyone who communicates regularly with data, including business professionals, analysts, marketers, salespeople, financial managers, and educators.

Awesome Math Teaching Mathematics with Problem Based Learning

Awesome Math Teaching Mathematics with Problem Based Learning

Author: Titu Andreescu, Kathy Cordeiro, Alina Andreescu Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 11/02/2020

Help your students to think critically and creatively through team-based problem solving instead of focusing on testing and outcomes. Professionals throughout the education system are recognizing that standardized testing is holding students back. Schools tend to view children as outcomes rather than as individuals who require guidance on thinking critically and creatively. Awesome Math focuses on team-based problem solving to teach discrete mathematics, a subject essential for success in the STEM careers of the future. Built on the increasingly popular growth mindset, this timely book emphasizes a problem-solving approach for developing the skills necessary to think critically, creatively, and collaboratively. In its current form, math education is a series of exercises: straightforward problems with easily-obtained answers. Problem solving, however, involves multiple creative approaches to solving meaningful and interesting problems. The authors, co-founders of the multi-layered educational organization AwesomeMath, have developed an innovative approach to teaching mathematics that will enable educators to: Move their students beyond the calculus trap to study the areas of mathematics most of them will need in the modern world Show students how problem solving will help them achieve their educational and career goals and form lifelong communities of support and collaboration Encourage and reinforce curiosity, critical thinking, and creativity in their students Get students into the growth mindset, coach math teams, and make math fun again Create lesson plans built on problem based learning and identify and develop educational resources in their schools Awesome Math: Teaching Mathematics with Problem Based Learning is a must-have resource for general education teachers and math specialists in grades 6 to 12, and resource specialists, special education teachers, elementary educators, and other primary education professionals.
