A Treatise on the Theory of Bessel Functions (Cambridge Mathematical Library)

A Treatise on the Theory of Bessel Functions (Cambridge Mathematical Library) Lowest new price: $70.04
Lowest used price: $12.79
List price: $84.99
Author: G. N. Watson
Brand: Cambridge University Press

The late Professor G.N. Watson wrote his monumental treatise on the theory of Bessel functions in 1922 with two objects in view. The first was the development of applications of the fundamental processes of the theory of complex variables, and the second was compiling a collection of results of value for mathematicians and physicists who encounter Bessel functions in the course of their researches. The completeness of the theoretical account, combined with the wide scope of the collection of practical examples have resulted in a book that will be indispensable for pure mathematicians, applied mathematicians, and physicists.

Yet Another Introduction to Analysis

Yet Another Introduction to Analysis Lowest new price: $53.91
Lowest used price: $17.25
List price: $66.99
Author: Victor Bryant
Brand: Brand: Cambridge University Press

Mathematics education in schools has seen a revolution in recent years. Students everywhere expect the subject to be well-motivated, relevant and practical. When such students reach higher education, the traditional development of analysis, often divorced from the calculus they learned at school, seems highly inappropriate. Shouldn't every step in a first course in analysis arise naturally from the student's experience of functions and calculus in school? And shouldn't such a course take every opportunity to endorse and extend the student's basic knowledge of functions? In Yet Another Introduction to Analysis, the author steers a simple and well-motivated path through the central ideas of real analysis. Each concept is introduced only after its need has become clear and after it has already been used informally. Wherever appropriate, new ideas are related to common topics in math curricula and are used to extend the reader's understanding of those topics. In this book the readers are led carefully through every step in such a way that they will soon be predicting the next step for themselves. In this way students will not only understand analysis, but also enjoy it.

Complex Analysis: The Geometric Viewpoint (Carus Mathematical Monographs)

Complex Analysis: The Geometric Viewpoint (Carus Mathematical Monographs) Lowest new price: $56.00
Lowest used price: $22.00
List price: $56.00
Author: Steven G. Krantz

In this second edition of a Carus Monograph Classic, Steven G. Krantz, a leading worker in complex analysis and a winner of the Chauvenet Prize for outstanding mathematical exposition, develops material on classical non-Euclidean geometry. He shows how it can be developed in a natural way from the invariant geometry of the complex disk. He also introduces the Bergmann kernel and metric and provides profound applications, some of which have never appeared in print before. In general, the new edition represents a considerable polishing and re-thinking of the original successful volume. A minimum of geometric formalism is used to gain a maximum of geometric and analytic insight. The climax of the book is an introduction to several complex variables from the geometric viewpoint. Poincaré's theorem, that the ball and bidisc are biholomorphically inequivalent, is discussed and proved.

Introduction to Topology

Introduction to Topology Lowest new price: $32.15
Lowest used price: $19.95
List price: $40.43
Author: Crump W. Baker
Brand: Brand: Krieger Pub Co

This text is intended for a one-semester undergraduate course in topology. The fundamental concepts of general topology are covered rigorously but at a gentle pace and an elementary level. It is accessible to students with only an elementary calculus background. In particular, abstract algebra is not a prerequisite. The first chapter develops the elementary concepts of sets and functions, and in Chapter 2 the general topological space is introduced. Subspaces, continuity, and homeomorphisms are covered in Chapter 3. The remaining chapters cover product spaces, connected spaces, separation properties, and metric spaces.

Fourier Analysis and Applications: Filtering, Numerical Computation, Wavelets (Texts in Applied Mathematics)

Fourier Analysis and Applications: Filtering, Numerical Computation, Wavelets (Texts in Applied Mathematics) Lowest new price: $75.52
Lowest used price: $42.00
List price: $105.00
Author: Claude Gasquet

The object of this book is two-fold -- on the one hand it conveys to mathematical readers a rigorous presentation and exploration of the important applications of analysis leading to numerical calculations. On the other hand, it presents physics readers with a body of theory in which the well-known formulae find their justification. The basic study of fundamental notions, such as Lebesgue integration and theory of distribution, allow the establishment of the following areas: Fourier analysis and convolution Filters and signal analysis time-frequency analysis (gabor transforms and wavelets). The whole is rounded off with a large number of exercises as well as selected worked-out solutions.

A Hilbert Space Problem Book (Graduate Texts in Mathematics)

A Hilbert Space Problem Book (Graduate Texts in Mathematics) Lowest new price: $49.99
Lowest used price: $30.99
List price: $89.99
Author: P.R. Halmos

From the Preface: "This book was written for the active reader. The first part consists of problems, frequently preceded by definitions and motivation, and sometimes followed by corollaries and historical remarks... The second part, a very short one, consists of hints... The third part, the longest, consists of solutions: proofs, answers, or contructions, depending on the nature of the problem....

This is not an introduction to Hilbert space theory. Some knowledge of that subject is a prerequisite: at the very least, a study of the elements of Hilbert space theory should proceed concurrently with the reading of this book."

Topology via Logic (Cambridge Tracts in Theoretical Computer Science)

Topology via Logic (Cambridge Tracts in Theoretical Computer Science) Lowest new price: $50.53
Lowest used price: $63.49
List price: $62.00
Author: Steven Vickers
Brand: Brand: Cambridge University Press

This advanced textbook on topology has three unusual features. First, the introduction is from the locale viewpoint, motivated by the logic of finite observations: this provides a more direct approach than the traditional one based on abstracting properties of open sets in the real line. Second, the author freely exploits the methods of locale theory. Third, there is substantial discussion of some computer science applications. As computer scientists become more aware of the mathematical foundations of their discipline, it is appropriate that such topics are presented in a form of direct relevance and applicability. This book goes some way towards bridging the gap for computer scientists.

Global Surgery Formula for the Casson-Walker Invariant. (AM-140)

Global Surgery Formula for the Casson-Walker Invariant. (AM-140) Lowest new price: $31.29
Lowest used price: $6.00
List price: $85.00
Author: Christine Lescop
Brand: Brand: Princeton University Press

This book presents a new result in 3-dimensional topology. It is well known that any closed oriented 3-manifold can be obtained by surgery on a framed link in S
3. In Global Surgery Formula for the Casson-Walker Invariant, a function F of framed links in S
3 is described, and it is proven that F consistently defines an invariant, lamda (l), of closed oriented 3-manifolds. l is then expressed in terms of previously known invariants of 3-manifolds. For integral homology spheres, l is the invariant introduced by Casson in 1985, which allowed him to solve old and famous questions in 3-dimensional topology. l becomes simpler as the first Betti number increases.


As an explicit function of Alexander polynomials and surgery coefficients of framed links, the function F extends in a natural way to framed links in rational homology spheres. It is proven that F describes the variation of l under any surgery starting from a rational homology sphere. Thus F yields a global surgery formula for the Casson invariant.

Analysis: An Introduction

Analysis: An Introduction Lowest new price: $56.66
Lowest used price: $26.21
List price: $78.99
Author: Richard Beals
Brand: Brand: Cambridge University Press

This self-contained text, suitable for advanced undergraduates, provides an extensive introduction to mathematical analysis, from the fundamentals to more advanced material. It begins with the properties of the real numbers and continues with a rigorous treatment of sequences, series, metric spaces, and calculus in one variable. Further subjects include Lebesgue measure and integration on the line, Fourier analysis, and differential equations. In addition to this core material, the book includes a number of interesting applications of the subject matter to areas both within and outside the field of mathematics. The aim throughout is to strike a balance between being too austere or too sketchy, and being so detailed as to obscure the essential ideas. A large number of examples and 500 exercises allow the reader to test understanding, practise mathematical exposition and provide a window into further topics.
