#### Finsler Geometry

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2013; US$ 109.00This book examines Randers metrics, a special class of Finsler metrics defined as the sum of a Riemannian metric and a 1-form. The text provides readers with essential Randers metrics findings, and core ideas and methods which are useful in Finsler geometry. more...

#### The Geometry of Hamilton and Lagrange Spaces

Springer 2001; US$ 179.00This monograph presents the foundations of Hamilton Geometry. The concept of Hamilton Space opens a new domain in differential geometry with large applications in such areas as mechanics, physics, and optimal control. more...

#### Homogeneous Finsler Spaces

Springer 2012; US$ 109.00"Homogeneous Finsler Spaces" is the first book to emphasize the relationship between Lie groups and Finsler geometry, and the first to show the validity in using Lie theory for the study of Finsler geometry problems. This book contains a series of new results obtained by the author and collaborators during the last decade. The topic of Finsler... more...

#### Initiation to Global Finslerian Geometry

Elsevier Science 2006; US$ 170.00After a brief description of the evolution of thinking on Finslerian geometry starting from Riemann, Finsler, Berwald and Elie Cartan, the book gives a clear and precise treatment of this geometry. The first three chapters develop the basic notions and methods, introduced by the author, to reach the global problems in Finslerian Geometry. The next... more...

#### Klassiker der Pädagogik

VS Verlag für Sozialwissenschaften 2011; US$ 39.99Von Rousseau bis Herbart, über Diesterweg, Natorp, Nohl und Mollenhauer bis Luhmann werden in diesem Band die Grundlegungen der Pädagogik der modernen Gesellschaft dargestellt. Neben einer biografischen Orientierung im jeweiligen soziokulturellen Kontext werden die zentralen Aussagen der klassisch gewordenen pädagogischen Akteure dokumentiert. Ergänzt... more...

#### The Mathematics of Minkowski Space-Time

Springer 2008; US$ 69.99Hyperbolic numbers are proposed for a rigorous geometric formalization of the space-time symmetry of two-dimensional Special Relativity. The system of hyperbolic numbers as a simple extension of the field of complex numbers is extensively studied in the book. In particular, an exhaustive solution of the "twin paradox" is given, followed by... more...

#### Smoothed Point Interpolation Methods

World Scientific Publishing Company 2013; US$ 218.00Based on the widely used finite element method (FEM) and the latest Meshfree methods, a next generation of numerical method called Point Interpolation Method (PIM) has been recently developed. The PIM is an innovative and effective combination of the FEM and the meshfree methods, and enables automation in computation, modeling and simulations —... more...

#### Universal Spaces and Mappings

Elsevier Science 2005; US$ 240.00The book is devoted to universality problems. A new approach to these problems is given using some specific spaces. Since the construction of these specific spaces is set-theoretical, the given theory can be applied to different topics of Topology such as: universal mappings, dimension theory, action of groups, inverse spectra, isometrical embeddings,... more...

#### The Weyl Operator and its Generalization

Springer 2013; US$ 74.95The discovery of quantum mechanics in the years 1925-1930 necessitated the consideration of associating ordinary functions with non-commuting operators. Methods were proposed by Born/Jordan, Kirkwood, and Weyl. Sometime later, Moyal saw the connection between the Weyl rule and the Wigner distribution, which had been proposed by Wigner in 1932 as a... more...
