#### Trivariate Local Lagrange Interpolation and Macro Elements of Arbitrary Smoothness

Vieweg+Teubner Verlag 2012; US$ 119.00Michael A. Matt constructs two trivariate local Lagrange interpolation methods which yield optimal approximation order and C r macro-elements based on the Alfeld and the Worsey-Farin split of a tetrahedral partition. The first interpolation method is based on cubic C 1 splines over type-4 cube partitions, for which numerical tests are given. The... more...

#### Weakly Wandering Sequences in Ergodic Theory

Springer Japan 2014; US$ 109.00The appearance of weakly wandering (ww) sets and sequences for ergodic transformations over half a century ago was an unexpected and surprising event. In time it was shown that ww and related sequences reflected significant and deep properties of ergodic transformations that preserve an infinite measure. This monograph studies in a systematic way... more...

#### Young Measures and Compactness in Measure Spaces

De Gruyter 2012; US$ 196.00Many problems in science can be formulated in the language of optimization theory, in which case an optimal solution or the best response to a particular situation is required. In situations of interest, such classical optimal solutions are lacking, or at least, the existence of such solutions is far from easy to prove. So, non-convex... more...

#### 1.1: Livre I. Commentaire historique et mathématique, édition et traduction du texte arabe. 1.2: Livre I: Édition et traduction du texte grec

De Gruyter 2008; US$ 280.00The treatise on conic sections by the Hellenistic mathematician Apollonius from Perga is regarded as a supreme achievement of Greek mathematics and maintained its authority right up to the 18th century. This new edition is the first to consider all Greek and Arabic sources, with the Arabic texts being presented in the first ever critical... more...

#### Algorithms for Approximation

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2006; US$ 179.00Approximation methods are vital in many challenging applications of computational science and engineering. This is a collection of papers from world experts in a broad variety of relevant applications, including pattern recognition, machine learning, multiscale modelling of fluid flow, metrology, geometric modelling, tomography, signal and image... more...

#### Almgren's Big Regularity Paper

World Scientific Publishing Company 2000; US$ 109.00Fred Almgren exploited the excess method for proving regularity theorems in the calculus of variations. His techniques yielded Hölder continuous differentiability except for a small closed singular set. In the sixties and seventies Almgren refined and generalized his methods. Between 1974 and 1984 he wrote a 1,700-page proof that was his most... more...

#### Ancient Mathematics

Taylor and Francis 2005; US$ 45.95The theorem of Pythagoras, Euclid's "Elements", Archimedes' method to find the volume of a sphere: all parts of the invaluable legacy of ancient mathematics. But ancient mathematics was also about counting and measuring, surveying land and attributing mystical significance to the number six. This volume offers the first accessible survey of the discipline... more...

#### Applied Non-Linear Dynamical Systems

Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 189.00The book is a collection of contributions devoted to analytical, numerical and experimental techniques of dynamical systems, presented at the International Conference on Dynamical Systems: Theory and Applications, held in ?ód?, Poland on December 2-5, 2013. The studies give deep insight into both the theory and applications of non-linear dynamical... more...
