#### Unexpected Links Between Egyptian And Babylonian Mathematics

World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 153.00Mesopotamian mathematics is known from a great number of cuneiform texts, most of them Old Babylonian, some Late Babylonian or pre-Old-Babylonian, and has been intensively studied during the last couple of decades. In contrast to this Egyptian mathematics is known from only a small number of papyrus texts, and the few books and papers that have been... more...

#### Trends and Applications in Constructive Approximation

Springer 2006; US$ 189.00This volume contains contributions from international experts in the fields of constructive approximation. This area has reached out to encompass the computational and approximation-theoretical aspects of various interesting fields in applied mathematics such as (multivariate) approximation methods, quasi-interpolation,and approximation by (orthogonal)... more...

#### A Remarkable Collection of Babylonian Mathematical Texts

Springer 2007; US$ 229.00The book analyzes the mathematical tablets from the private collection of Martin Schoyen. It includes analyses of tablets which have never been studied before. This provides new insight into Babylonian understanding of sophisticated mathematical objects. The book is carefully written and organized. The tablets are classified according to mathematical... more...

#### Low Rank Approximation

Springer 2011; US$ 129.00Data Approximation by Low-complexity Models details the theory, algorithms, and applications of structured low-rank approximation. Efficient local optimization methods and effective suboptimal convex relaxations for Toeplitz, Hankel, and Sylvester structured problems are presented. Much of the text is devoted to describing the applications of the theory... more...

#### Edmond Halley’s Reconstruction of the Lost Book of Apollonius’s Conics

Springer 2011; US$ 149.00Apollonius's Conics was one of the greatest works of advanced mathematics in antiquity. The work comprised eight books, of which four have come down to us in their original Greek and three in Arabic. By the time the Arabic translations were produced, the eighth book had already been lost. In 1710, Edmond Halley, then Savilian Professor of Geometry... more...

#### Approximation Theory XIII

Springer 2011; US$ 179.00These proceedings were prepared in connection with the international conference Approximation Theory XIII, which was held March 7--10, 2010 in San Antonio, Texas. The conference was the thirteenth in a series of meetings in Approximation Theory held at various locations in the United States, and was attended by 144 participants. Previous conferences... more...

#### Probability Approximations and Beyond

Springer 2011; US$ 79.95In June 2010, a conference, Probability Approximations and Beyond, was held at the National University of Singapore (NUS), in honor of pioneering mathematician Louis Chen. Chen made the first of several seminal contributions to the theory and application of Stein's method. One of his most important contributions has been to turn Stein's concentration... more...

#### Algebraic Approximation

Springer 2011; US$ 59.95This book contains an exposition of several results related with direct and converse theorems in the theory of approximation by algebraic polynomials in a finite interval. In addition, some facts concerning trigonometric approximation that are necessary for motivation and comparisons are included. The selection of papers that are referenced and discussed... more...
