A Panorama of Hungarian Mathematics in the Twentieth by Janos (Ed.) Horvath,Janos Horvath

By Janos (Ed.) Horvath,Janos Horvath

a wonderful interval of Hungarian arithmetic all started in 1900 while Lipót Fejér found the summability of Fourier series.This was once via the discoveries of his disciples in Fourier research and within the thought of analytic services. even as Frederic (Frigyes) Riesz created practical research and Alfred Haar gave the 1st instance of wavelets. Later the themes investigated through Hungarian mathematicians broadened significantly, and integrated topology, operator conception, differential equations, likelihood, and so forth. the current quantity, the 1st of 2, offers one of the most striking effects accomplished within the 20th century by means of Hungarians in research, geometry and stochastics. The publication is out there to a person with a minimal wisdom of arithmetic. it truly is supplemented with an essay at the heritage of Hungary within the 20th century and biographies of these mathematicians who're now not energetic. an inventory of all folks mentioned within the chapters concludes the volume.

General Investigations of Curved Surfaces: Edited with an Introduction and Notes by Peter Pesic (Dover Books on Mathematics)

Gauss's concept of surfaces is without doubt one of the only mathematical achievements encouraged through rules that arose in reference to surveys of the skin of the earth. lengthy considered as a masterpiece in content material and shape, this paintings positive aspects one of many author's most unique contributions to mathematics--the discovery that Gauss termed the "Theorema Egregium.

The Local Structure of Algebraic K-Theory: 18 (Algebra and Applications)

Algebraic K-theory encodes vital invariants for numerous mathematical disciplines, spanning from geometric topology and useful research to quantity idea and algebraic geometry. As is often encountered, this strong mathematical item is particularly tough to calculate. except Quillen's calculations of finite fields and Suslin's calculation of algebraically closed fields, few whole calculations have been to be had earlier than the invention of homological invariants provided through motivic cohomology and topological cyclic homology.

Fractal Solutions for Understanding Complex Systems in Earth Sciences (Springer Earth System Sciences)

This e-book bargains with fractals in realizing difficulties encountered in earth technology, and their recommendations. It begins with an research of 2 sessions of equipment (homogeneous fractals random types, and homogeneous resource distributions or “one element” distributions) commonly subtle within the geophysical neighborhood, specially for learning strength fields and their similar resource distributions.
