#### Invariant Probabilities of Transition Functions

Springer 2014; US$ 129.00The structure of the set of all the invariant probabilities and the structure of various types of individual invariant probabilities of a transition function are two topics of significant interest in the theory of transition functions, and are studied in this book. The results obtained are useful in ergodic theory and the theory of dynamical systems,... more...

#### Approximation Problems in Analysis and Probability

Elsevier Science 2011; US$ 235.00This is an exposition of some special results on analytic or C ? -approximation of functions in the strong sense, in finite- and infinite-dimensional spaces. It starts with H. Whitney's theorem on strong approximation by analytic functions in finite-dimensional spaces and ends with some recent results by the author on strong C ? -approximation of functions... more...

#### Young Measures and Compactness in Measure Spaces

De Gruyter 2012; US$ 182.00Many 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 optimization... 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...

#### Iterated Integrals And Cycles On Algebraic Manifolds

World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 112.00This subject has been of great interest both to topologists and to number theorists. The first part of this book describes some of the work of Kuo-Tsai Chen on iterated integrals and the fundamental group of a manifold. The author attempts to make his exposition accessible to beginning graduate students. He then proceeds to apply Chen's constructions... more...
