#### Nonlinear Dynamics

De Gruyter 2015; US$ 210.00This book is devoted to analytically approximate methods in the nonlinear dynamics of a rigid body with cavities partly filled by liquid. It combines several methods and compares the results with experimental data. It is useful for experienced and early-stage readers interested in analytical approaches to fluid-structure interaction... more...

#### History Of Mathematical Sciences

World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 251.00This book explores the interaction between Europe and East Asia between the 16th and the 18th centuries in the field of mathematical sciences, bringing to the fore the role of Portugal as an agent of transmission of European science to East Asia. It is an important contribution to understanding this fundamental period of scientific history, beginning... more...

#### An Introduction to Navier'Stokes Equation and Oceanography

Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 59.95Corresponds to a graduate course in mathematics, taught at Carnegie Mellon University in the spring of 1999.

#### Models, Mathematical Methods & Applications

Emerald Group Publishing Limited 2009; US$ 199.00The contributions that are included in this e-book have been selected from those presented at the first conference on 'Models and mathematical methods and their applications to biology and industry' held in La Roche sur Yon, France, in December 2007. The aim of the conference was to present mathematical and numerical methods for solving problems... more...

#### Control Theoretic Splines: Optimal Control, Statistics, and Path Planning

Princeton University Press 2009; US$ 62.95Splines, both interpolatory and smoothing, have a long and rich history that has largely been application driven. This book unifies these constructions in a comprehensive and accessible way, drawing from the latest methods and applications to show how they arise naturally in the theory of linear control systems. Magnus Egerstedt and Clyde Martin are... more...

#### Introduction to Ramsey Spaces (AM-174)

Princeton University Press 2010; US$ 52.50Ramsey theory is a fast-growing area of combinatorics with deep connections to other fields of mathematics such as topological dynamics, ergodic theory, mathematical logic, and algebra. The area of Ramsey theory dealing with Ramsey-type phenomena in higher dimensions is particularly useful. Introduction to Ramsey Spaces presents in a systematic... more...
