Mathematics for Enzyme Reaction Kinetics and Reactor Performance 2 Volume Set

Mathematics for Enzyme Reaction Kinetics and Reactor Performance 2 Volume Set

Author: F. Xavier Malcata Format: Hardback Release Date: 30/04/2020

Mathematics for Enzyme Reaction Kinetics and Reactor Performance is the first set in a unique 11 volume-collection on Enzyme Reactor Engineering. This two volume-set relates specifically to the wide mathematical background required for systematic and rational simulation of both reaction kinetics and reactor performance; and to fully understand and capitalize on the modelling concepts developed. It accordingly reviews basic and useful concepts of Algebra (first volume), and Calculus and Statistics (second volume). A brief overview of such native algebraic entities as scalars, vectors, matrices and determinants constitutes the starting point of the first volume; the major features of germane functions are then addressed. Vector operations ensue, followed by calculation of determinants. Finally, exact methods for solution of selected algebraic equations - including sets of linear equations, are considered, as well as numerical methods for utilization at large. The second volume begins with an introduction to basic concepts in calculus, i.e. limits, derivatives, integrals and differential equations; limits, along with continuity, are further expanded afterwards, covering uni- and multivariate cases, as well as classical theorems. After recovering the concept of differential and applying it to generate (regular and partial) derivatives, the most important rules of differentiation of functions, in explicit, implicit and parametric form, are retrieved - together with the nuclear theorems supporting simpler manipulation thereof. The book then tackles strategies to optimize uni- and multivariate functions, before addressing integrals in both indefinite and definite forms. Next, the book touches on the methods of solution of differential equations for practical applications, followed by analytical geometry and vector calculus. Brief coverage of statistics-including continuous probability functions, statistical descriptors and statistical hypothesis testing, brings the second volume to a close.

Meeting under the Integral Sign? The Oslo Congress of Mathematicians on the Eve of the Second World War

Meeting under the Integral Sign? The Oslo Congress of Mathematicians on the Eve of the Second World War

Author: Christopher D. Hollings, Reinhard Siegmund-Schultze Format: Hardback Release Date: 30/04/2020

This book examines the historically unique conditions under which the International Congress of Mathematicians took place in Oslo in 1936. This Congress was the only one on this level to be held during the period of the Nazi regime in Germany (1933-1945) and after the wave of emigrations from it. Relying heavily on unpublished archival sources, the authors consider the different goals of the various participants in the Congress, most notably those of the Norwegian organizers, and the Nazi-led German delegation. They also investigate the reasons for the absence of the proposed Soviet and Italian delegations. In addition, aiming to shed light onto the mathematical dimension of the Congress, the authors provide overviews of the nineteen plenary presentations, as well as their planning and development. Biographical information about each of the plenary speakers rounds off the picture. The Oslo Congress, the first at which Fields Medals were awarded, is used as a lens through which the reader of this book can view the state of the art of mathematics in the mid-1930s.

Index Theorem 1

Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 14/04/2020

The Atiyah-Singer index theorem is a remarkable result that allows one to compute the space of solutions of a linear elliptic partial differential operator on a manifold in terms of purely topological data related to the manifold and the symbol of the operator. First proved by Atiyah and Singer in 1963, it marked the beginning of a completely new direction of research in mathematics with relations to differential geometry, partial differential equations, differential topology, K-theory, physics, and other areas.

With job titles ranging from sports analyst to science writer to inventory specialist to CEO, the volume provides ample evidence that one really can do nearly anything with a degree in mathematics. These professionals share how their mathematical education shaped their career choices and how mathematics, or the skills acquired in a mathematics education, is used in their daily work. The degrees earned by the authors profiled here are a good mix of bachelors, masters, and PhDs. With 114 completely new profiles since the third edition, the careers featured within accurately reflect current trends in the job market. College mathematics faculty, high school teachers, and career counselors will all find this a useful resource. Career centers, mathematics departments, and student lounges should have a copy available for student browsing. In addition to the career profiles, the volume contains essays from career counseling professionals on the topics of job-searching, interviewing, and applying to graduate school.

Arithmetic Algebraic Geometry

Arithmetic Algebraic Geometry

Author: Brian Conrad Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 14/04/2020

The articles in this volume are expanded versions of lectures delivered at the Graduate Summer School and at the Mentoring Program for Women in Mathematics held at the Institute for Advanced Study/Park City Mathematics Institute. The theme of the program was arithmetic algebraic geometry. The choice of lecture topics was heavily influenced by the recent spectacular work of Wiles on modular elliptic curves and Fermat's Last Theorem. The main emphasis of the articles in the volume is on elliptic curves, Galois representations, and modular forms. One lecture series offers an introduction to these objects. The others discuss selected recent results, current research, and open problems and conjectures. The book would be a suitable text for an advanced graduate topics course in arithmetic algebraic geometry.
