Dieser Buchtitel ist Teil des Digitalisierungsprojekts Springer Book Archives mit Publikationen, die seit den Anfängen des Verlags von 1842 erschienen sind. Der Verlag stellt mit diesem Archiv Quellen für die historische wie auch die disziplingeschichtliche Forschung zur Verfügung, die jeweils im historischen Kontext betrachtet werden müssen. Dieser Titel erschien in der Zeit vor 1945 und wird daher in seiner zeittypischen politisch-ideologischen Ausrichtung vom Verlag nicht beworben.

The Theory of Remainders

Author: Andrea Rothbart

Publisher: Courier Dover Publications

ISBN: N.A

Category: Mathematics

An imaginative introduction to number theory, this unique approach employs a pair of fictional characters, Ant and Gnam. Ant leads Gnam through a variety of theories, and together, they put the theories into action—applying linear diophantine equations to football scoring, using a black-magic device to simplify problems in modular structures, and developing intriguing modifications to the rules of chess. Appropriate for anyone familiar with algebra at the high-school level, The Theory of Remainders offers a captivating introduction to both number theory and abstract algebra. Both elementary and challenging, it provides a view of mathematics as a conceptual net and illustrates the differences between conceptual and paraconceptual claims—an excellent start to expanding students' perspectives on mathematics. Exercises throughout the book form an integral part of the text, extending students' experience with the concepts under discussion and presenting opportunities to observe patterns. In addition to the exercises, a series of optional problems allows more advanced readers to further develop the concepts.

Theory of Markov Processes

Publisher: Dover Books on Mathematics

ISBN: N.A

Category: Mathematics

Page: 210

View: 4120

An investigation of the logical foundations of the theory behind Markov random processes, this text explores subprocesses, transition functions, and conditions for boundedness and continuity. Rather than focusing on probability measures individually, the work explores connections between functions. An elementary grasp of the theory of Markov processes is assumed. Starting with a brief survey of relevant concepts and theorems from measure theory, the text investigates operations that permit an inspection of the class of Markov processes corresponding to a given transition function. It advances to the more complicated operations of generating a subprocess, followed by examinations of the construction of Markov processes with given transition functions, the concept of a strictly "Markov process," and the conditions required for boundedness and continuity of a Markov process. Addenda, notes, references, and indexes supplement the text.

Lange bevor die Schrift entwickelt wurde, hat der Mensch geometrische Strukturen wahrgenommen und systematisch verwendet: ob beim Weben oder Flechten einfacher zweidimensionaler Muster oder beim Bauen mit dreidimensionalen Körpern. Das Buch liefert einen faszinierenden Überblick über die geometrischen Vorstellungen und Erkenntnisse der Menschheit von der Urgesellschaft bis hin zu den mathematischen und künstlerischen Ideen des 20. Jahrhunderts.

Da glaubt man, man hätte die Mathematik hinter sich, und dann hatte der Lehrer, der immer behauptete, dass man in der Schule fürs Leben lerne, doch Recht. "Algebra II für Dummies" hilft allen, bei denen die Mathematik unversehens wieder ins Leben zurückgekehrt ist, sei es nun am Arbeitsplatz, bei einer Weiterbildung oder an der Universität. Wem Brüche, Exponenten und Kurvendiskussionen die Haare zu Berge stehen lassen und Terme auch in Papierform den Schweiß auf die Stirn treiben, dem hilft dieses Buch auf einfache und humorvolle Art und Weise.
