The Whole Truth: A Fresh Look At Reality
"The Whole Truth" consists of a series of discussions of a wide variety of scientific and philosophic concepts.Although it is based on scientific fact, it is not a text, and is not written for the academic audience; instead it is speculative in nature and discusses alternate views of a number of philosophic and scientific topics.Among these topics are reality, time, our universe and its$79.59
The Princeton Companion to Mathematics
This is a one-of-a-kind reference for anyone with a serious interest in mathematics. Edited by Timothy Gowers, a recipient of the Fields Medal, it presents nearly two hundred entries, written especially for this book by some of the world's leading mathematicians, that introduce basic mathematical tools and vocabulary; trace the development of modern mathematics; explain essential terms and$30.59
Quantum Computing since Democritus
Written by noted quantum computing theorist Scott Aaronson, this book takes readers on a tour through some of the deepest ideas of maths, computer science and physics. Full of insights, arguments and philosophical perspectives, the book covers an amazing array of topics. Beginning in antiquity with Democritus, it progresses through logic and set theory, computability and complexity theory, quantum$80.99
A Mathematical Introduction to Compressive Sensing
Applied and Numerical Harmonic Analysis
At the intersection of mathematics, engineering, and computer science sits the thriving field of compressive sensing. Based on the premise that data acquisition and compression can be performed simultaneously, compressive sensing finds applications in imaging, signal processing, and many other domains. In the areas of applied mathematics, electrical engineering, and theoretical computer science,$84.99
Cambridge Tracts in Mathematics (Book #205)
Ridge functions are a rich class of simple multivariate functions which have found applications in a variety of areas. These include partial differential equations (where they are sometimes termed 'plane waves'), computerised tomography, projection pursuit in the analysis of large multivariate data sets, the MLP model in neural networks, Waring's problem over linear forms, and approximation theory$44.99
Hypernumbers and Extrafunctions
Extending the Classical Calculus
“Hypernumbers and Extrafunctions” presents a rigorous mathematical approach to operate with infinite values. First, concepts of real and complex numbers are expanded to include a new universe of numbers called hypernumbers which includes infinite quantities. This brief extends classical calculus based on real functions by introducing extrafunctions, which generalize not only the concept of a$107.09
Max-linear Systems: Theory and Algorithms
Springer Monographs in Mathematics
Recent years have seen a significant rise of interest in max-linear theory and techniques. Specialised international conferences and seminars or special sessions devoted to max-algebra have been organised. This book aims to provide a first detailed and self-contained account of linear-algebraic aspects of max-algebra for general (that is both irreducible and reducible) matrices. Among the main$12.95
Lectures on Ordinary Differential Equations
Hailed by The American Mathematical Monthly as "a rigorous and lively introduction," this text explores a topic of perennial interest in mathematics. The author, a distinguished mathematician and formulator of the Hurewicz theorem, presents a clear and lucid treatment that emphasizes geometric methods. Topics include first-order scalar and vector equations, basic properties of linear vector
