#### Behaviour Monitoring and Interpretation - BMI

IOS Press 2009; US$ 145.00Focuses on behaviour monitoring and interpretation with regard to two main areas of focus: investigation of motion patterns and ambient assisted living. This book presents contributions on research in both these areas. It includes chapters discussing developments in monitoring and representing behaviours, with a focus on movement-based behaviour. more...

#### Advanced Mathematical and Computational Tools in Metrology and Testing

World Scientific Publishing Company 2009; US$ 158.00 US$ 137.46The main theme of the AMCTM 2008 conference, reinforced by the establishment of IMEKO TC21, was to provide a central opportunity for the metrology and testing community worldwide to engage with applied mathematicians, statisticians and software engineers working in the relevant fields. This review volume consists of reviewed papers prepared on the... more...

#### The Mathematical Mechanic

Princeton University Press 2009; US$ 15.95 US$ 13.72Everybody knows that mathematics is indispensable to physics--imagine where we'd be today if Einstein and Newton didn't have the math to back up their ideas. But how many people realize that physics can be used to produce many astonishing and strikingly elegant solutions in mathematics? Mark Levi shows how in this delightful book, treating readers... more...

#### Outer Billiards on Kites (AM-171)

Princeton University Press 2009; US$ 72.50 US$ 62.35Outer billiards is a basic dynamical system defined relative to a convex shape in the plane. B. H. Neumann introduced this system in the 1950s, and J. Moser popularized it as a toy model for celestial mechanics. All along, the so-called Moser-Neumann question has been one of the central problems in the field. This question asks whether or not one... more...

The first half of the book provides an introduction to complex differential geometry and... more...

#### Simplicial Homotopy Theory

Birkhäuser Basel 2009; US$ 56.03This book introduces basic tools of modern homotopy theory. It covers basic topics such as simplicial groups, Postnikov towers, and bisimplicial sets, as well as such advanced topics as homotopy limits and colimits, cosimplicial spaces, and homotopy coherence. more...

#### Algebraic Methods in Unstable Homotopy Theory

Cambridge University Press 2010; US$ 124.00The most modern and thorough treatment of unstable homotopy theory available. more...

#### Nonlinear Computational Geometry

Springer New York 2009; US$ 169.16An original motivation for algebraic geometry was to understand curves and surfaces in three dimensions. Recent theoretical and technological advances in areas such as robotics, computer vision, computer-aided geometric design and molecular biology, together with the increased availability of computational resources, have brought these original questions... more...

#### Gems of Geometry

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2009; US$ 37.00Based on a series of lectures for adult students, this lively and entertaining book proves that, far from being a dusty, dull subject, geometry is in fact full of beauty and fascination. The author's infectious enthusiasm is put to use in explaining many of the key concepts in the field, starting with the Golden Number and taking the reader on... more...
