|Dear Professor Dyson: Twenty Years of Correspondence Between Freeman Dyson and Undergraduate Students on Science, Technology, Society and Life
Lowest new price: $31.91
Lowest used price: $41.62
List price: $36.00
Brand: Dwight E Neuenschwander Freeman J Dyson
Freeman Dyson has designed nuclear reactors and bomb-powered spacecraft; he has studied the origins of life and the possibilities for the long-term future; he showed quantum mechanics to be consistent with electrodynamics and started cosmological eschatology; he has won international recognition for his work in science and for his work in reconciling science to religion; he has advised generals and congressional committees. An STS (Science, Technology, Society) curriculum or discussion group that engages topics such as nuclear policies, genetic technologies, environmental sustainability, the role of religion in a scientific society, and a hard look towards the future, would count itself privileged to include Professor Dyson as a class participant and mentor. In this book, STS topics are not discussed as objectified abstractions, but through personal stories. The reader is invited to observe Dyson's influence on a generation of young people as they wrestle with issues of science, technology, society, life in general and our place in the universe. The book is filled with personal anecdotes, student questions and responses, honest doubts and passions.

|A Course in Metric Geometry
Lowest new price: $48.86
Lowest used price: $95.11
List price: $53.00
Author: Dmitri Burago
Brand: Brand: American Mathematical Society
"Metric geometry" is an approach to geometry based on the notion of length on a topological space. This approach experienced a very fast development in the last few decades and penetrated into many other mathematical disciplines, such as group theory, dynamical systems, and partial differential equations. The objective of this graduate textbook is twofold: to give a detailed exposition of basic notions and techniques used in the theory of length spaces, and, more generally, to offer an elementary introduction into a broad variety of geometrical topics related to the notion of distance, including Riemannian and Carnot-Caratheodory metrics, the hyperbolic plane, distance-volume inequalities, asymptotic geometry (large scale, coarse), Gromov hyperbolic spaces, convergence of metric spaces, and Alexandrov spaces (non-positively and non-negatively curved spaces). The authors tend to work with "easy-to-touch" mathematical objects using "easy-to-visualize" methods. The authors set a challenging goal of making the core parts of the book accessible to first-year graduate students. Most new concepts and methods are introduced and illustrated using simplest cases and avoiding technicalities. The book contains many exercises, which form a vital part of exposition.

|Random Matrices, Volume 142, Third Edition (Pure and Applied Mathematics)
Lowest new price: $132.05
Lowest used price: $161.28
List price: $155.00
Author: Madan Lal Mehta
Random Matrices gives a coherent and detailed description of analytical methods devised to study random matrices. These methods are critical to the understanding of various fields in in mathematics and mathematical physics, such as nuclear excitations, ultrasonic resonances of structural materials, chaotic systems, the zeros of the Riemann and other zeta functions. More generally they apply to the characteristic energies of any sufficiently complicated system and which have found, since the publication of the second edition, many new applications in active research areas such as quantum gravity, traffic and communications networks or stock movement in the financial markets.
This revised and enlarged third edition reflects the latest developements in the field and convey a greater experience with results previously formulated. For example, the theory of skew-orthogoanl and bi-orthogonal polynomials, parallel to that of the widely known and used orthogonal polynomials, is explained here for the first time.
- Presentation of many new results in one place for the first time.
- First time coverage of skew-orthogonal and bi-orthogonal polynomials and their use in the evaluation of some multiple integrals.
- Fredholm determinants and Painlevé equations.
- The three Gaussian ensembles (unitary, orthogonal, and symplectic); their n-point correlations, spacing probabilities.
- Fredholm determinants and inverse scattering theory.
- Probability densities of random determinants.

Author: Paul Halmos
Brand: Halmos Paul
Master expositor Paul Halmos presents Linear Algebra in the pure axiomatic spirit. He writes "My purpose in this book is to treat linear transformations on finite dimensional vector spaces by the methods of more general theories. The idea is to emphasize the simple geometric notions common to many parts of mathematics and its applications, and to do so in a language that gives away the trade secrets ...". This text is an ideal supplement to modern treatments of Linear Algebra. "The theory is systematically developed by the axiomatic method that has, since von Neumann, dominated the general approach to linear functional analysis and that achieves here a high degree of lucidity and clarity....The book contains about 350 well placed and instructive problems, which cover a considerable part of the subject. All in all this is an excellent work, of equally high value for both student and teacher." --Zentralblatt für Mathematik.

|Functions of Matrices: Theory and Computation (Other Titles in Applied Mathematics)
Lowest new price: $67.50
Lowest used price: $57.99
List price: $67.50
Author: Nicholas J. Higham
The only book devoted exclusively to matrix functions, this research monograph gives a thorough treatment of the theory of matrix functions and numerical methods for computing them. The author s elegant presentation focuses on the equivalent definitions of f(A) via the Jordan canonical form, polynomial interpolation, and the Cauchy integral formula, and features an emphasis on results of practical interest and an extensive collection of problems and solutions. Functions of Matrices: Theory and Computation is more than just a monograph on matrix functions; its wide-ranging content including an overview of applications, historical references, and miscellaneous results, tricks, and techniques with an f(A) connection makes it useful as a general reference in numerical linear algebra. Other key features of the book include development of the theory of conditioning and properties of the Fréchet derivative; an emphasis on the Schur decomposition, the block Parlett recurrence, and judicious use of Padé approximants; the inclusion of new, unpublished research results and improved algorithms; a chapter devoted to the f(A)b problem; and a MATLAB® toolbox providing implementations of the key algorithms.
Audience: This book is for specialists in numerical analysis and applied linear algebra as well as anyone wishing to learn about the theory of matrix functions and state of the art methods for computing them. It can be used for a graduate-level course on functions of matrices and is a suitable reference for an advanced course on applied or numerical linear algebra. It is also particularly well suited for self-study.

List price: $49.99
Author: David A. Harville
Brand: David A Harville
This book contains over 300 exercises and solutions that together cover a wide variety of topics in matrix algebra. They can be used for independent study or in creating a challenging and stimulating environment that encourages active engagement in the learning process. The requisite background is some previous exposure to matrix algebra of the kind obtained in a first course. The exercises are those from an earlier book by the same author entitled Matrix Algebra From a Statistician's Perspective. They have been restated (as necessary) to stand alone, and the book includes extensive and detailed summaries of all relevant terminology and notation. The coverage includes topics of special interest and relevance in statistics and related disciplines, as well as standard topics. The overlap with exercises available from other sources is relatively small. This collection of exercises and their solutions will be a useful reference for students and researchers in matrix algebra. It will be of interest to mathematicians and statisticians.
