Applications of Calculus (Resources for Calculus Collection) by Philip Straffin (editor)

By Philip Straffin (editor)

Scholars see how calculus can clarify the constitution of a rainbow, consultant a robotic arm, or study the unfold of AIDS. every one module begins with a concrete challenge and strikes directly to offer an answer. The discussions are precise, reasonable, and pay cautious recognition to the method of mathematical modeling. routines, suggestions, and references are supplied.

Abstract analytic number theory

"This publication is well-written and the bibliography excellent," declared Mathematical stories of John Knopfmacher's cutting edge learn. The three-part therapy applies classical analytic quantity conception to a large choice of mathematical topics no longer often taken care of in an arithmetical means. the 1st half bargains with arithmetical semigroups and algebraic enumeration difficulties; half addresses arithmetical semigroups with analytical homes of classical sort; and the ultimate half explores analytical homes of alternative arithmetical structures.

Mathematical Problems in Elasticity and Homogenization

This monograph relies on study undertaken through the authors over the last ten years. the most a part of the paintings bargains with homogenization difficulties in elasticity in addition to a few mathematical difficulties on the topic of composite and perforated elastic fabrics. This research of strategies in strongly non-homogeneous media brings forth quite a few only mathematical difficulties that are vitally important for purposes.

Dynamics: Numerical Explorations: Accompanying Computer Program Dynamics

The instruction manual Dynamics: Numerical Explorations describes the way to use this system, Dynamics, to enquire dynamical platforms. Co-author J. A. Yorke, whereas operating with the Maryland Chaos team, constructed an array of instruments to aid visualize the houses of dynamical structures. Yorke came upon it important to mix those a variety of uncomplicated instruments with one another right into a unmarried package deal.

It shall be seen (Chapter 13) that the class number is finite for an algebraic number field. It can become infinite, however, for algebraic function fields as we shall illustrate for a famous classical case, elliptic functions over ~, (see Chapter 8). For ~[l=6l (see Chapter 3) the class number is 2. 30. (2,1=6) The ideal classes are (as verified in Chapter 14 below).
