Suitable for advanced undergraduates and graduate students, this text introduces the broad scope of convexity. It leads students to open questions and unsolved problems, and it highlights diverse applications. Author Steven R. Lay, Professor of Mathematics at Lee University in Tennessee, reinforces his teachings with numerous examples, plus exercises with hints and answers. The first three chapters form the foundation for all that follows, starting with a review of the fundamentals of linear algebra and topology. They also survey the development and applications of relationships between hyperplanes and convex sets. Subsequent chapters are relatively self-contained, each focusing on a particular aspect or application of convex sets. Topics include characterizations of convex sets, polytopes, duality, optimization, and convex functions. Hints, solutions, and references for the exercises appear at the back of the book.

Mathematical Imaging is currently a rapidly growing field inapplied mathematics, with an increasing need for theoreticalmathematics. This book, the second of two volumes, emphasizes the role ofmathematics as a rigorous basis for imaging sciences. It provides acomprehensive and convenient overview of the key mathematicalconcepts, notions, tools and frameworks involved in the variousfields of gray-tone and binary image processing and analysis, byproposing a large, but coherent, set of symbols and notations, acomplete list of subjects and a detailed bibliography. Itestablishes a bridge between the pure and applied mathematicaldisciplines, and the processing and analysis of gray-tone andbinary images. It is accessible to readers who have neitherextensive mathematical training, nor peer knowledge in ImageProcessing and Analysis. It is a self-contained book focusing on the mathematicalnotions, concepts, operations, structures, and frameworks that arebeyond or involved in Image Processing and Analysis. The notationsare simplified as far as possible in order to be more explicativeand consistent throughout the book and the mathematical aspects aresystematically discussed in the image processing and analysiscontext, through practical examples or concrete illustrations.Conversely, the discussed applicative issues allow the role ofmathematics to be highlighted. Written for a broad audience – students, mathematicians,image processing and analysis specialists, as well as otherscientists and practitioners – the author hopes that readerswill find their own way of using the book, thus providing amathematical companion that can help mathematicians become morefamiliar with image processing and analysis, and likewise, imageprocessing and image analysis scientists, researchers and engineersgain a deeper understanding of mathematical notions andconcepts.

This text for advanced undergraduates and graduate students examines problems concerning convex sets in real Euclidean spaces of two or three dimensions. It illustrates the different ways in which convexity can enter into the formulation as the solution to different problems in these spaces. Problems in Euclidean Space features four chapters that develop an increasingly dominant influence of convexity. In the first chapter, convexity plays a minor role; the second chapter considers problems originally stated in a wider context that can be reduced to problems concerning convex sets. In the third chapter, the problems are defined strictly for convex sets and not for more general sets, and the final chapter discusses properties of subclasses of the class of convex sets.

Like differentiability, convexity is a natural and powerful property of functions that plays a significant role in many areas of mathematics, both pure and applied. It ties together notions from topology, algebra, geometry and analysis, and is an important tool in optimization, mathematical programming and game theory. This book, which is the product of a collaboration of over 15 years, is unique in that it focuses on convex functions themselves, rather than on convex analysis. The authors explore the various classes and their characteristics and applications, treating convex functions in both Euclidean and Banach spaces. The book can either be read sequentially for a graduate course, or dipped into by researchers and practitioners. Each chapter contains a variety of specific examples, and over 600 exercises are included, ranging in difficulty from early graduate to research level.
