#### Asymptotic Integration of Differential and Difference Equations

Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 89.99This book presents the theory of asymptotic integration for both linear differential and difference equations. This type of asymptotic analysis is based on some fundamental principles by Norman Levinson. While he applied them to a special class of differential equations, subsequent work has shown that the same principles lead to asymptotic results... more...

#### Advances in Information and Computer Security

Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 72.00This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 9th International Workshop on Security, IWSEC 2014, held in Hirosaki, Japan, in August 2014. The 13 regular papers presented together with 8 short papers in this volume were carefully reviewed and selected from 55 submissions. The focus of the workshop was on the following topics: system security,... more...

#### History Of Mathematical Sciences

World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 154.00This 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...

#### Attractivity and Bifurcation for Nonautonomous Dynamical Systems

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2007; US$ 69.95Although, bifurcation theory of equations with autonomous and periodic time dependence is a major object of research in the study of dynamical systems since decades, the notion of a nonautonomous bifurcation is not yet established. In this book, two different approaches are developed which are based on special definitions of local attractivity and... more...

#### Control Theoretic Splines

Princeton University Press 2009; US$ 69.00Splines, 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$ 58.00Ramsey 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...

#### Quasi-Monte Carlo Methods in Finance

Diplomica Verlag 2008; US$ 39.14Portfolio optimization is a widely studied problem in finance dating back to the work of Merton from the 1960s. While many approaches rely on dynamic programming, some recent contributions use martingale techniques to determine the optimal portfolio allocation. Using the latter approach, we follow a journal article from 2003 and show how optimal portfolio... more...

#### Das Lernspiel als Träger mathematischer Lernprozesse im Anfangsunterricht

Diplomica Verlag 2009; US$ 21.57Jeder Mathematikunterricht wirft die Frage auf, wie der Lehrer seinen Schülern effektiv einen Zugang zum Unterricht vermitteln kann und inwiefern das Ziel, mathematische Lernprozesse zu schaffen, gefördert werden kann. Eine Möglichkeit, dieses Ziel zu erreichen, bietet der Einsatz von Lernspielen. Spielen macht Freude, entspannt, bringt Erfolgserlebnisse... more...

#### Combinatorics and Reasoning

Springer Netherlands 2010; US$ 159.00This study of a group of students from first grade through high school focuses on their work on a set of combinatorics tasks. The results offer insights into various topics such as the foundations of proof building and the tools needed to make connections. more...

#### Systems of Frequency Curves

Cambridge University Press 2009; US$ 44.00It should be of especial value as a quick reference book for formulae and methods used in fitting frequency curves. more...
