The focus of this book is on the theory of infinity in Lawrence of Lindores? commentary on Aristotle?s ?Physics?. Written shortly before 1400, Lindores? text played an important role in disseminating the natural philosophy of John Buridan and his disciples in the 15 th century. In the first part of this book, Lindores? concept of science is discussed... more...

This unique book provides a concise presentation of many of the fundamental strategies for calculating approximations to the oscillatory solutions of truly nonlinear (TNL) oscillator equations. The volume gives a general overview of the author's work on harmonic balance, iteration and combined linearization-averaging methods. However, full discussions... more...

Real-world systems that involve some non-smooth change are often well-modeled by piecewise-smooth systems. However there still remain many gaps in the mathematical theory of such systems. This doctoral thesis presents new results regarding bifurcations of piecewise-smooth, continuous, autonomous systems of ordinary differential equations and maps.... more...

Among the group of physics honors students huddled in 1957 on a Colorado mountain watching Sputnik bisect the heavens, one young scientist was destined, three short years later, to become a key player in America's own top-secret spy satellite program. One of our era's most prolific mathematicians, Karl Gustafson was given just two weeks to... more...

One of the most elementary questions in mathematics is whether an area minimizing surface spanning a contour in three space is immersed or not; i.e. does its derivative have maximal rank everywhere. The purpose of this monograph is to present an elementary proof of this very fundamental and beautiful mathematical result. The exposition follows the... more...

Elementary Differential Geometry presents the main results in the differential geometry of curves and surfaces suitable for a first course on the subject. Prerequisites are kept to an absolute minimum - nothing beyond first courses in linear algebra and multivariable calculus - and the most direct and straightforward approach is used throughout. New... more...

This book concerns the origins of mathematical problem solving at the internationally active Osram and Telefunken Corporations during the golden years of broadcasting and electron tube research. The woman scientist Iris Runge, who received an interdisciplinary education at the University of Gottingen, was long employed as the sole mathematical authority... more...
