#### Clifford Algebras and Dirac Operators in Harmonic Analysis

Cambridge University Press 1991; US$ 66.00The aim of this book is to unite the seemingly disparate topics of Clifford algebras, analysis on manifolds and harmonic analysis. more...

#### Matrices of Sign-Solvable Linear Systems

Cambridge University Press 1995; US$ 45.00The large and diffuse body of literature connected with sign-solvability is presented as a coherent whole for the first time in this book. more...

#### Mixtures

Wiley 2011; US$ 109.95 US$ 95.29This book uses the EM (expectation maximization) algorithm to simultaneously estimate the missing data and unknown parameter(s) associated with a data set. The parameters describe the component distributions of the mixture; the distributions may be continuous or discrete. The editors provide a complete account of the applications, mathematical... more...

#### There's Something About Gdel

#### Hypoelliptic Laplacian and Orbital Integrals (AM-177)

Princeton University Press 2011; US$ 78.50 US$ 71.44This book uses the hypoelliptic Laplacian to evaluate semisimple orbital integrals in a formalism that unifies index theory and the trace formula. The hypoelliptic Laplacian is a family of operators that is supposed to interpolate between the ordinary Laplacian and the geodesic flow. It is essentially the weighted sum of a harmonic oscillator along... more...

#### Selected Problems of the Vietnamese Mathematical Olympiad (1962-2009)

World Scientific Publishing Company 2010; US$ 31.00 US$ 28.21Vietnam has actively organized the National Competition in Mathematics and since 1962, the Vietnamese Mathematical Olympiad (VMO).
