A Fixed-Point Farrago by Joel H. Shapiro

By Joel H. Shapiro

This textual content presents an advent to a few of the best-known fixed-point theorems, with an emphasis on their interactions with themes in research. the extent of exposition raises steadily in the course of the ebook, development from a uncomplicated requirement of undergraduate talent to graduate-level sophistication. Appendices supply an advent to (or refresher on) the various prerequisite fabric and workouts are built-in into the textual content, contributing to the volume’s skill for use as a self-contained textual content. Readers will locate the presentation specifically worthy for autonomous examine or as a complement to a graduate direction in fixed-point theory.

The fabric is divided into 4 components: the 1st introduces the Banach Contraction-Mapping precept and the Brouwer Fixed-Point Theorem, besides a variety of attention-grabbing functions; the second one makes a speciality of Brouwer’s theorem and its software to John Nash’s paintings; the 3rd applies Brouwer’s theorem to areas of endless measurement; and the fourth rests at the paintings of Markov, Kakutani, and Ryll–Nardzewski surrounding mounted issues for households of affine maps.

Cloud Computing: Data-Intensive Computing and Scheduling by Frederic Magoules, Jie Pan, Fei Teng

By Frederic Magoules, Jie Pan, Fei Teng

As increasingly more info is generated at a faster-than-ever fee, processing huge volumes of information is changing into a problem for facts research software program. Addressing functionality concerns, Cloud Computing: Data-Intensive Computing and Scheduling explores the evolution of classical options and describes thoroughly new tools and leading edge algorithms. The ebook delineates many techniques, versions, equipment, algorithms, and software program utilized in cloud computing.

After a common creation to the sector, the textual content covers source administration, together with scheduling algorithms for real-time initiatives and functional algorithms for person bidding and auctioneer pricing. It subsequent explains techniques to info analytical question processing, together with pre-computing, facts indexing, and knowledge partitioning. functions of MapReduce, a brand new parallel programming version, are then offered. The authors additionally talk about how one can optimize a number of group-by question processing and introduce a MapReduce real-time scheduling algorithm.

A precious reference for learning and utilizing MapReduce and cloud computing systems, this ebook offers a variety of applied sciences that exhibit how cloud computing can meet company specifications and function the infrastructure of multidimensional facts research purposes.

The Universal History of Numbers: From Prehistory to the by Georges Ifrah

By Georges Ifrah

"Georges Ifrah is the fellow. This publication, without problems, ideas. . . . it really is amazing . . . a mind-boggling and enriching experience." –The parent (London) "Monumental. . . . a desirable trip taking us via many various cultures."–The occasions (London)"Ifrah’s ebook amazes and fascinates by means of the scope of its scholarship. it's not anything under the heritage of the human race informed via figures." –International bring in Tribune Now in paperback, here's Georges Ifrah’s landmark overseas bestseller–the first entire, common learn of the discovery and evolution of numbers across the world. A riveting heritage of counting and calculating, from the time of the cave dwellers to the 20th century, this attention-grabbing quantity brings numbers to exciting existence, explaining their improvement in human phrases, the exciting events that made them beneficial, and the bright achievements in human notion that they made attainable. It takes us throughout the numbers tale from Europe to China, through historic Greece and Rome, Mesopotamia, Latin the United States, India, and the Arabic international locations. Exploring the various methods civilizations built and adjusted their mathematical platforms, Ifrah imparts a special perception into the character of human thought–and into how our realizing of numbers and the methods they form our lives have replaced and grown over hundreds of thousands of years.

Exploiting Hidden Structure in Matrix Computations: by Michele Benzi, Dario Bini, Daniel Kressner, Hans

By Michele Benzi, Dario Bini, Daniel Kressner, Hans Munthe-Kaas, Charles Van Loan, Valeria Simoncini

Focusing on designated matrices and matrices that are in a few feel `near’ to established matrices, this quantity covers a vast variety of subject matters of present curiosity in numerical linear algebra. Exploitation of those much less seen structural houses might be of significant value within the layout of effective numerical equipment, for instance algorithms for matrices with low-rank block constitution, matrices with decay, and dependent tensor computations. functions diversity from quantum chemistry to queuing concept.

Structured matrices come up often in purposes. Examples comprise banded and sparse matrices, Toeplitz-type matrices, and matrices with semi-separable or quasi-separable constitution, in addition to Hamiltonian and symplectic matrices. The linked literature is gigantic, and lots of effective algorithms were built for fixing difficulties related to such matrices.

The textual content arose from a C.I.M.E. path held in Cetraro (Italy) in June 2015 which aimed to offer this speedy transforming into box to younger researchers, exploiting the services of 5 top academics with assorted theoretical and alertness perspectives.

Perturbation Methods in Applied Mathematics by J. Kevorkian, J.D. Cole

By J. Kevorkian, J.D. Cole

This booklet is a revised and up-to-date model, together with a considerable part of new fabric, of J. D. Cole's textual content Perturbation equipment in utilized Mathe­ matics, Ginn-Blaisdell, 1968. We current the cloth at a degree which assumes a few familiarity with the fundamentals of normal and partial differential equations. a number of the extra complicated rules are reviewed as wanted; accordingly this publication can function a textual content in both a complicated undergraduate direction or a graduate point direction at the topic. The utilized mathematician, trying to comprehend or clear up a actual challenge, quite often makes use of a perturbation process. In doing this, he often attracts on a backlog of expertise won from the answer of comparable examples instead of on a few normal concept of perturbations. the purpose of this publication is to survey those perturbation equipment, in particular in reference to vary­ ential equations, with the intention to illustrate sure common positive factors universal to many examples. the fundamental rules, even though, also are appropriate to fundamental equations, integrodifferential equations, or even to_difference equations. In essence, a perturbation strategy includes developing the answer for an issue concerning a small parameter B, both within the differential equation or the boundary stipulations or either, while the answer for the restricting case B = zero is understood. the most mathematical instrument used is asymptotic enlargement with appreciate to an appropriate asymptotic series of features of B.
