Problem solving

  • Advances in Discrete Tomography and Its Applicationsby Gabor T. Herman; Attila Kuba

    Birkhäuser Boston 2008; US$ 181.10

    The book provides a unified presentation of new methods, algorithms, and select applications that are the foundations of multidimensional image construction and reconstruction. The self-contained survey chapters present cutting-edge research and results in the field. more...

  • The Art of Problem Posingby Stephen I. Brown; Marion I. Walter

    Taylor and Francis 2005; US$ 47.95

    The new edition of this classic book describes and provides a myriad of examples of the relationships between problem posing and problem solving, and explores the educational potential of integrating these two activities in classrooms at all levels. The Art of Problem Posing, Third Edition encourages readers to shift their thinking about problem... more...

  • The Art of Problem Posing, Second Editionby Stephen I. Brown; Marion I. Walter

    Taylor and Francis 2012; US$ 47.95

    Updated and expanded, this second edition satisfies the same philosophical objective as the first -- to show the importance of problem posing. Although interest in mathematical problem solving increased during the past decade, problem posing remained relatively ignored. The Art of Problem Posing draws attention to this equally important act and is... more...

  • Concept Mapping in Mathematicsby Karoline Afamasaga-Fuata'i

    Springer US 2009; US$ 108.86

    This heavily-illustrated collection of research articles is the first comprehensive book on concept mapping in mathematics. It flows from a historical development overview into numerous applications and contains case studies and field-tested resources. more...

  • Convex Analysisby Steven G. Krantz

    CRC Press 2014; US$ 79.95

    Convexity is an ancient idea going back to Archimedes. Used sporadically in the mathematical literature over the centuries, today it is a flourishing area of research and a mathematical subject in its own right. Convexity is used in optimization theory, functional analysis, complex analysis, and other parts of mathematics. Convex Analysis introduces... more...

  • Convex and Discrete Geometryby Peter Gruber

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2007; US$ 97.97

    Convex and Discrete Geometry is an area of mathematics situated between analysis, geometry and discrete mathematics with numerous relations to other areas. The book gives an overview of major results, methods and ideas of convex and discrete geometry and its applications. Besides being a graduate-level introduction to the field, it is a practical... more...

  • The Cube-A Window to Convex and Discrete Geometryby Chuanming Zong

    Cambridge University Press 2006; US$ 104.00 US$ 85.28

    Analysis, Algebra, Combinatorics, Graph Theory, Hyperbolic Geometry, Number Theory. more...

  • Diagnostische Kompetenz von Mathematik-Lehramtsstudierendenby Hannah Heinrichs

    Springer Fachmedien Wiesbaden 2015; US$ 50.31

    Vor dem Hintergrund der aktuellen Diskussion zur Lehrerprofessionalität geht Hannah Heinrichs der Frage nach, wie diagnostische Kompetenzen von (angehenden) Lehrkräften effektiv gefördert werden können. Die Autorin konzentriert sich dabei auf die fehlerdiagnostische Kompetenz von Mathematik-Lehramtsstudierenden und untersucht, wie sich bereits in der... more...

  • An Easy Path to Convex Analysis and Applicationsby Boris S. Mordukhovich; Nguyen Mau Nam

    Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2013; US$ 50.00

    Convex optimization has an increasing impact on many areas of mathematics, applied sciences, and practical applications. It is now being taught at many universities and being used by researchers of different fields. As convex analysis is the mathematical f more...

  • Games, Puzzles, and Computationby Robert A. Hearn; Erik D. Demaine

    CRC Press 2009; US$ 54.95

    The authors show that there are underlying mathematical reasons for why games and puzzles are challenging (and perhaps why they are so much fun). They also show that games and puzzles can serve as powerful models of computation?quite different from the usual models of automata and circuits?offering a new way of thinking about computation. The appendices... more...
