Understanding Banach Spaces

Understanding Banach Spaces

Author: Daniel Gonzalez Sanchez Format: Hardback Release Date: 16/03/2020

This book focuses on the study of several properties of Banach spaces applied to diverse problems in functional and numerical analysis. Many problems in science, engineering and other disciplines can be expressed in the form of equations, inequalities or systems of equations using mathematical modelling. In particular, a large number of these problems can be solved using these spaces. The work includes twenty five contributions grouped into several blocks, depending on the topics, using definitions, properties, algorithms and applications of specific cases in the use of Banach spaces. A great multitude of examples showing the theoretical application developed appears throughout the work. This book is aimed at researchers from various disciplines whose field of interest is related to functional and numerical analysis.

Mathematics is the Poetry of Science

Mathematics is the Poetry of Science

Author: Cedric (Professor, Professor, University of Lyon) Villani Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 04/03/2020

In the words of the great poet Senghor, Cedric Villani makes the bold claim that Mathematics is the Poetry of Science. Perhaps paradoxical to some, both disciplines are concerned with describing the world around us, understanding its parts, and using this knowledge to create something profound. World-renowned mathematician and Fields Medallist Cedric Villani explores this analogy in this engaging and intelligent text, and shows how mathematics, one of the world's few universal languages, holds deep similarities to the literary genre. A great lover of poetry, he insists that the two are intrinsically linked in their aim of both tackling the complexities of our reality as well as distancing us from it so that we may better appreciate its beauty. In a more light-hearted and concise approach than his more theoretical academic works, this book represents one of Villani's attempts to communicate his love of mathematics to a wider audience, drawing daring parallels between two universes that meet in their aspiration of the sublime.

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.

Rediscovering Mathematics

Rediscovering Mathematics

Author: Shai Simonson Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 02/03/2020

Rediscovering Mathematics is aimed at a general audience and addresses the question of how best to teach and study mathematics. The book attempts to bring the exciting and dynamic world of mathematics to a non-technical audience. With so much focus today on how best to educate the new generation and make mathematics less rote and more interactive, this book is an eye-opening experience for many people who suffered with dull math teachers and curricula. Rediscovering Mathematics is an eclectic collection of mathematical topics and puzzles aimed at talented youngsters and inquisitive adults who want to expand their view of mathematics. By focusing on problem solving, and discouraging rote memorization, the book shows how to learn and teach mathematics through investigation, experimentation, and discovery. Rediscovering Mathematics is also an excellent text for training math teachers at all levels. Topics range in difficulty and cover a wide range of historical periods, with some examples demonstrating how to uncover mathematics in everyday life, including: number theory and its application to secure communication over the Internet, the algebraic and combinatorial work of a medieval mathematician Rabbi, and applications of probability to sports, casinos, and gambling. Rediscovering Mathematics provides a fresh view of mathematics for those who already like the subject, and offers a second chance for those who think they don't.

Numerical Simulation, An Art of Prediction 1 Theory

Numerical Simulation, An Art of Prediction 1 Theory

Author: Jean-Francois Sigrist Format: Hardback Release Date: 01/03/2020

Numerical simulation is a technique of major importance in various technical and scientific fields. Used to understand diverse physical phenomena or to design everyday objects, it plays a major role in innovation in the industrial sector. Whilst engineering curricula now include training courses dedicated to it, numerical simulation is still not well-known in some economic sectors, and even less so among the general public. Simulation involves the mathematical modeling of the real world, coupled with the computing power offered by modern technology. Designed to perform virtual experiments, digital simulation can be considered as an art of prediction . Embellished with a rich iconography and based on the testimony of researchers and engineers, this book shines a light on this little-known art. It is the first of two volumes and focuses on the principles, methods and industrial practice of numerical modeling.

Gaussian Measures in Hilbert Space Construction and Properties

Gaussian Measures in Hilbert Space Construction and Properties

Author: Alexander Kukush Format: Hardback Release Date: 01/03/2020

At the nexus of probability theory, geometry and statistics, a Gaussian measure is constructed on a Hilbert space in two ways: as a product measure and via a characteristic functional based on Minlos-Sazonov theorem. As such, it can be utilized for obtaining results for topological vector spaces. Gaussian Measures contains the proof for Ferniques theorem and its relation to exponential moments in Banach space. Furthermore, the fundamental Feldman-H?jek dichotomy for Gaussian measures in Hilbert space is investigated. Applications in statistics are also outlined. In addition to chapters devoted to measure theory, this book highlights problems related to Gaussian measures in Hilbert and Banach spaces. Borel probability measures are also addressed, with properties of characteristic functionals examined and a proof given based on the classical Banach?Steinhaus theorem. Gaussian Measures is suitable for graduate students, plus advanced undergraduate students in mathematics and statistics. It is also of interest to students in related fields from other disciplines. Results are presented as lemmas, theorems and corollaries, while all statements are proven. Each subsection ends with teaching problems, and a separate chapter contains detailed solutions to all the problems. With its student-tested approach, this book is a superb introduction to the theory of Gaussian measures on infinite-dimensional spaces.
