Description : An invaluable reference and learning guide to more than 150 special functions of applied mathematics, statistics, physics, chemistry, computer science, and engineering. This book contains over 700 graphics of the functions, which readers can also create by using the annotated Mathematica files provided. It offers complete, consistent instructions and test values for computing the functions accurately and efficiently with the full Fortran-90 source programs on the CD-ROM, which is both Windows and Macintosh compatible.
Description : This adaptation of Arfken and Weber's bestselling 'Mathematical Methods for Physicists' is a comprehensive, accessible reference for using mathematics to solve physics problems. Introductions and review material provide context and extra support for key ideas, with detailed examples.
Description : This book comprehensively covers several hundred functions or function families. In chapters that progress by degree of complexity, it starts with simple, integer-valued functions then moves on to polynomials, Bessel, hypergeometric and hundreds more.
Description : This book is a reference for librarians, mathematicians, and statisticians involved in college and research level mathematics and statistics in the 21st century. We are in a time of transition in scholarly communications in mathematics, practices which have changed little for a hundred years are giving way to new modes of accessing information. Where journals, books, indexes and catalogs were once the physical representation of a good mathematics library, shelves have given way to computers, and users are often accessing information from remote places. Part I is a historical survey of the past 15 years tracking this huge transition in scholarly communications in mathematics. Part II of the book is the bibliography of resources recommended to support the disciplines of mathematics and statistics. These are grouped by type of material. Publication dates range from the 1800's onwards. Hundreds of electronic resources-some online, both dynamic and static, some in fixed media, are listed among the paper resources. Amazingly a majority of listed electronic resources are free.
Description : The new standard reference on mathematical functions, replacing the classic but outdated handbook from Abramowitz and Stegun. Includes PDF version.
Description : Computational Problems in Abstract Algebra provides information pertinent to the application of computers to abstract algebra. This book discusses combinatorial problems dealing with things like generation of permutations, projective planes, orthogonal latin squares, graphs, difference sets, block designs, and Hadamard matrices. Comprised of 35 chapters, this book begins with an overview of the methods utilized in and results obtained by programs for the investigation of groups. This text then examines the method for establishing the order of a finite group defined by a set of relations satisfied by its generators. Other chapters describe the modification of the Todd–Coxeter coset enumeration process. This book discusses as well the difficulties that arise with multiplication and inverting programs, and of some ways to avoid or overcome them. The final chapter deals with the computational problems related to invariant factors in linear algebra. Mathematicians as well as students of algebra will find this book useful.
Description : The second edition of Instant Notes in Bioinformatics introduced the readers to the themes and terminology of bioinformatics. It is divided into three parts: the first being an introduction to bioinformatics in biology; the second covering the physical, mathematical, statistical and computational basis of bioinformatics, using biological examples wherever possible; the third describing applications, giving specific detail and including data standards. The applications covered are sequence analysis and annotation, transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolite study, supramolecular organization, systems biology and the integration of-omic data, physiology, image analysis, and text analysis.
Description : Uses illustrations, examples, and diagrams to provide an overview of various mathematical topics, including arithmetic, geometry, and statistics.
Description : The new edition is significantly updated and expanded. This unique collection of review articles, ranging from fundamental concepts up to latest applications, contains individual contributions written by renowned experts in the relevant fields. Much attention is paid to ensuring fast access to the information, with each carefully reviewed article featuring cross-referencing, references to the most relevant publications in the field, and suggestions for further reading, both introductory as well as more specialized. While the chapters on group theory, integral transforms, Monte Carlo methods, numerical analysis, perturbation theory, and special functions are thoroughly rewritten, completely new content includes sections on commutative algebra, computational algebraic topology, differential geometry, dynamical systems, functional analysis, graph and network theory, PDEs of mathematical physics, probability theory, stochastic differential equations, and variational methods.
Description : This landmark text from world-leading radiologist describes and illustrates how imaging techniques are created, analyzed and applied to biomedical problems.
