#### Distributions and Their Applications in Physics

Elsevier Science 2017; US$ 31.95Distributions and Their Applications in Physics is the introduction of the Theory of Distributions and their applications in physics. The book contains a discussion of those topics under the Theory of Distributions that are already considered classic, which include local distributions; distributions with compact support; tempered distributions; the... more...

#### Applied Singular Integral Equations

CRC Press 2016; US$ 105.95The book is devoted to varieties of linear singular integral equations, with special emphasis on their methods of solution. It introduces the singular integral equations and their applications to researchers as well as graduate students of this fascinating and growing branch of applied mathematics. more...

#### Particle Swarm Optimisation

CRC Press 2016; US$ 106.95Although the particle swarm optimisation (PSO) algorithm requires relatively few parameters and is computationally simple and easy to implement, it is not a globally convergent algorithm. In Particle Swarm Optimisation: Classical and Quantum Perspectives , the authors introduce their concept of quantum-behaved particles inspired by quantum mechanics,... more...

#### Mathematical Physics

University of Chicago Press 2015; US$ 41.00Mathematical Physics is an introduction to such basic mathematical structures as groups, vector spaces, topological spaces, measure spaces, and Hilbert space. Geroch uses category theory to emphasize both the interrelationships among different structures and the unity of mathematics. Perhaps the most valuable feature of the book is the illuminating... more...

#### Computational Physics

Wiley 2015; US$ 135.00 US$ 121.50The use of computation and simulation has become an essential part of the scientific process. Being able to transform a theory into an algorithm requires significant theoretical insight, detailed physical and mathematical understanding, and a working level of competency in programming. This upper-division text provides an unusually broad survey... more...

#### Mathematics for Physicists

Wiley 2015; US$ 65.95 US$ 59.36Mathematics 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...

#### Zur Robustheit von Konfidenzbereichen und Tests für Erwartungswerte

Springer Fachmedien Wiesbaden 2015; US$ 46.65Achim Mees untersucht Fragen zur Robustheit von Konfidenzbereichen und statistischen Tests, wobei der Fokus auf Konfidenzbereichen und Tests für den Erwartungswert unabhängiger identisch verteilter Beobachtungsgrößen liegt. Neben der Zusammenfassung und Ausarbeitung bereits bestehender Ergebnisse werden zwei neue Resultate präsentiert. Zum einen wird... more...

#### Optimized Response-Adaptive Clinical Trials

Springer Fachmedien Wiesbaden 2014; US$ 67.32Two-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$ 134.00 US$ 120.60An 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...
