#### Mathematics for Physicists

Wiley 2015; US$ 65.95Mathematics for Physicists is a relatively short volume covering all the essential mathematics needed for a typical first degree in physics, from a starting point that is compatible with modern school mathematics syllabuses. Early chapters deliberately overlap with senior school mathematics, to a degree that will depend on the background of the... more...

#### Optimized Response-Adaptive Clinical Trials

Springer Fachmedien Wiesbaden 2014; US$ 89.99Two-armed response-adaptive clinical trials are modelled as Markov decision problems to pursue two overriding objectives: Firstly, to identify the superior treatment at the end of the trial and, secondly, to keep the number of patients receiving the inferior treatment small. Such clinical trial designs are very important, especially for rare diseases.... more...

#### Large Strain Finite Element Method

Wiley 2014; US$ 125.00An introductory approach to the subject of large strains and large displacements in finite elements. Large Strain Finite Element Method: A Practical Course , takes an introductory approach to the subject of large strains and large displacements in finite elements and starts from the basic concepts of finite strain deformability, including finite... more...

His areas of interest are topological methods in differential equations and continuum models in material science.Michael Grinfeld serves on the Editorial Boards of Proceedings EMS and Mathematical methods in... more...

#### Stochastik für das Lehramt

De Gruyter 2014; US$ 630.00Students of the teaching profession view stochastics as difficult to understand and complex. This book provides a clear, precise, and structured introduction to this material. It includes many descriptive examples, such as games of chance, which help promote understanding. Thus, the textbook is not only an ideal accompaniment to courses... more...

#### A Finite Element Primer for Beginners

Springer 2014; US$ 54.99The purpose of this primer is to provide the basics of the Finite Element Method, primarily illustrated through a classical model problem, linearized elasticity. The topics covered are:(1) Weighted residual methods and Galerkin approximations,(2) A model problem for one-dimensional?linear elastostatics,(3) Weak formulations in one dimension,(4) Minimum... more...

#### Differential Geometry and Kinematics of Continua

World Scientific Publishing Company 2014; US$ 75.00This book provides definitions and mathematical derivations of fundamental relationships of tensor analysis encountered in nonlinear continuum mechanics and continuum physics, with a focus on finite deformation kinematics and classical differential geometry. Of particular interest are anholonomic aspects arising from a multiplicative decomposition... more...

#### Quantum Fractals

World Scientific Publishing Company 2014; US$ 143.00Starting with numerical algorithms resulting in new kinds of amazing fractal patterns on the sphere, this book describes the theory underlying these phenomena and indicates possible future applications. The book also explores the following questions: -->: What are fractals?; How do fractal patterns emerge from quantum observations and relativistic... more...
