#### Geometric Group Theory

Springer 2007; US$ 169.00This volume assembles research papers in geometric and combinatorial group theory. This wide area may be defined as the study of those groups that are defined by their action on a combinatorial or geometric object, in the spirit of Klein's programme. The contributions range over a wide spectrum: limit groups, groups associated with equations, with... more...

#### Factorization of Matrix and Operator Functions

Springer 2007; US$ 189.00The present book deals with factorization problems for matrix and operator functions. The problems originate from, or are motivated by, the theory of non-selfadjoint operators, the theory of matrix polynomials, mathematical systems and control theory, the theory of Riccati equations, inversion of convolution operators, theory of job scheduling in operations... more...

Wiley 2008; US$ 156.00A comprehensive, must-have handbook of matrix methods with a unique emphasis on statistical applications This timely book, A Matrix Handbook for Statisticians, provides a comprehensive, encyclopedic treatment of matrices as they relate to both statistical concepts and methodologies. Written by an experienced authority on matrices and statistical theory,... more...

#### Hierarchical Matrices

Springer 2008; US$ 189.00Hierarchical matrices are an efficient framework for large-scale fully populated matrices arising, e.g., from the finite element discretization of solution operators of elliptic boundary value problems. In addition to storing such matrices, approximations of the usual matrix operations can be computed with logarithmic-linear complexity, which can be... more...

#### Infinite Matrices and their Finite Sections

This book is concerned with the study of infinite matrices and their approximation by matrices of finite size. more...

#### Classical Finite Transformation Semigroups

Springer 2008; US$ 119.00Offers a self-contained introduction to the modern theory of finite transformation semigroups. This book covers topics such as: transformations and semigroups, ideals and Green's relations, subsemigroups, congruences, endomorphisms, nilpotent subsemigroups, presentations, actions on sets, linear representations, cross-sections and variants. more...

#### Positive Definite Matrices

Princeton University Press 2009; US$ 72.50This book represents the first synthesis of the considerable body of new research into positive definite matrices. These matrices play the same role in noncommutative analysis as positive real numbers do in classical analysis. They have theoretical and computational uses across a broad spectrum of disciplines, including calculus, electrical engineering,... more...

#### Robust Algebraic Multilevel Methods and Algorithms

De Gruyter 2009; US$ 119.00This book deals with algorithms for the solution of linear systems of algebraic equations with large-scale sparse matrices, with a focus on problems that are obtained after discretization of partial differential equations using finite element methods. Provides a systematic presentation of the recent advances in robust algebraic multilevel methods.... more...
