Number Systems

  • The Invention of Numbersby Peter Bentley

    Octopus 2016; US$ 10.99

    Numbers are at the heart of the existence of the universe and everything in it, and yet a lot of us have little understanding of their creation, let alone their part in philosophy, art, music, physics, literature, religion and computing. Dr Bentley's fascinating history of the origins of numbers will unlock the secrets of these things that we take... more...

  • Probabilistic Approaches for Geotechnical Site Characterization and Slope Stability Analysisby Zijun Cao; Yu Wang; Dianqing Li

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2016; US$ 129.00

    This is the first book to revisit geotechnical site characterization from a probabilistic point of view and provide rational tools to probabilistically characterize geotechnical properties and underground stratigraphy using limited information obtained from a specific site. This book not only provides new probabilistic approaches for geotechnical site... more...

  • Finite Element Methods for Eigenvalue Problemsby Jiguang Sun; Aihui Zhou

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 139.95

    This book covers finite element methods for several typical eigenvalues that arise from science and engineering. Both theory and implementation are covered in depth at the graduate level. The background for typical eigenvalue problems is included along with functional analysis tools, finite element discretization methods, convergence analysis, techniques... more...

  • Numerical Simulation in Physics and Engineeringby Inmaculada Higueras; Teo Roldán; Juan José Torrens

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 109.00

    This book presents lecture notes from the XVI ?Jacques-Louis Lions? Spanish-French School on Numerical Simulation in Physics and Engineering, held in Pamplona (Navarra, Spain) in September 2014. The subjects covered include: numerical analysis of isogeometric methods, convolution quadrature for wave simulations, mathematical methods in image... more...

  • Approximate Solutions of Common Fixed-Point Problemsby Alexander J. Zaslavski

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 129.00

    This book presents results on theconvergence behavior of algorithms which are known as vital tools for solvingconvex feasibility problems and common fixed point problems. The main goal forus in dealing with a known computational error is to find what approximatesolution can be obtained and how many iterates one needs to find it. Accordingto know results,... more...

  • Iterative Solution of Large Sparse Systems of Equationsby Wolfgang Hackbusch

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 149.00

    In the second edition of this classic monograph, complete with four new chapters and updated references, readers will now have access to content describing and analysing classical and modern methods with emphasis on the algebraic structure of linear iteration, which is usually ignored in other literature. The necessary amount of work increases... more...

  • Numerical Approximation of Partial Differential Equationsby Sören Bartels

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 89.99

    Finite element methods for approximating partial differential equations have reached a high degree of maturity, and are an indispensible tool in science and technology. This textbook aims at providing a thorough introduction to the construction, analysis, and implementation of finite element methods for model problems arising in continuum mechanics.... more...

  • A Concise Introduction to Numerical Analysisby A. C. Faul

    CRC Press 2016; US$ 79.95

    This textbook provides an accessible and concise introduction to numerical analysis for upper undergraduate and beginning graduate students from various backgrounds.
