Expertly revised and updated, the chapters cover topics such as number systems, set and functions, differential calculus, matrices and integral calculus. Worked examples are provided and chapters conclude with exercises to which answers are given. For students seeking further challenges, problems intersperse the text, for which complete solutions are provided. Modifications in this third edition include a more informal approach to sequence limits and an increase in the number of worked examples, exercises and problems. The third edition of Fundamentals of university mathematics is an essential reference for first year university students in mathematics and related disciplines. It will also be of interest to professionals seeking a useful guide to mathematics at this level and capable pre-university students. One volume, unified treatment of essential topics Clearly and comprehensively covers material beyond standard textbooks Worked examples, challenges and exercises throughout

Fundamentals of Mathematical Analysis Book Excerpt:

Fundamentals of Mathematical Analysis explores real and functional analysis with a substantial component on topology. The three leading chapters furnish background information on the real and complex number fields, a concise introduction to set theory, and a rigorous treatment of vector spaces. Fundamentals of Mathematical Analysis is an extensive study of metric spaces, including the core topics of completeness, compactness and function spaces, with a good number of applications. The later chapters consist of an introduction to general topology, a classical treatment of Banach and Hilbert spaces, the elements of operator theory, and a deep account of measure and integration theories. Several courses can be based on the book. This book is suitable for a two-semester course on analysis, and material can be chosen to design one-semester courses on topology or real analysis. It is designed as an accessible classical introduction to the subject and aims to achieve excellent breadth and depth and contains an abundance of examples and exercises. The topics are carefully sequenced, the proofs are detailed, and the writing style is clear and concise. The only prerequisites assumed are a thorough understanding of undergraduate real analysis and linear algebra, and a degree of mathematical maturity.

Calculus for Engineering Students Book Excerpt:

Calculus for Engineering Students: Fundamentals, Real Problems, and Computers insists that mathematics cannot be separated from chemistry, mechanics, electricity, electronics, automation, and other disciplines. It emphasizes interdisciplinary problems as a way to show the importance of calculus in engineering tasks and problems. While concentrating on actual problems instead of theory, the book uses Computer Algebra Systems (CAS) to help students incorporate lessons into their own studies. Assuming a working familiarity with calculus concepts, the book provides a hands-on opportunity for students to increase their calculus and mathematics skills while also learning about engineering applications. Organized around project-based rather than traditional homework-based learning Reviews basic mathematics and theory while also introducing applications Employs uniform chapter sections that encourage the comparison and contrast of different areas of engineering

Fundamentals of Classical Statistical Thermodynamics Book Excerpt:

Both a comprehensive overview and a treatment at the appropriate level of detail, this textbook explains thermodynamics and generalizes the subject so it can be applied to small nano- or biosystems, arbitrarily far from or close to equilibrium. In addition, nonequilibrium free energy theorems are covered with a rigorous exposition of each one. Throughout, the authors stress the physical concepts along with the mathematical derivations. For researchers and students in physics, chemistry, materials science and molecular biology, this is a useful text for postgraduate courses in statistical mechanics, thermodynamics and molecular simulations, while equally serving as a reference for university teachers and researchers in these fields.

Game Theory Book Excerpt:

Written engagingly and with agreeable humour, this book balances a light touch with a rigorous yet economical account of the theory of games and bargaining models. It provides a precise interpretation, discussion and mathematical analysis for a wide range of “game-like problems in economics, sociology, strategic studies and war. There is first an informal introduction to game theory, which can be understood by non-mathematicians, which covers the basic ideas of extensive form, pure and mixed strategies and the minimax theorem. The general theory of non-cooperative games is then given a detailed mathematical treatment in the second chapter. Next follows a “first class account of linear programming, theory and practice, terse, rigorous and readable, which is applied as a tool to matrix games and economics from duality theory via the equilibrium theorem, with detailed explanations of computational aspects of the simplex algorithm. The remaining chapters give an unusually comprehensive but concise treatment of cooperative games, an original account of bargaining models, with a skillfully guided tour through the Shapley and Nash solutions for bimatrix games and a carefully illustrated account of finding the best threat strategies. Balances a light touch with a rigorous yet economical account of the theory of games and bargaining models Shows basic ideas of extensive form, pure and mixed strategies, the minimax theorem, non-cooperative and co-operative games, and a ‘‘first class’’ account of linear programming, theory and practice Based on a series of lectures given by the author in the theory of games at Royal Holloway College

Fundamentals of Calculus and Probability Book Excerpt:

"Fundamentals of Calculus and Probability" is a book intended for students that have already had a course or two in Calculus, but perhaps not recently. The book is an assortment of topics related to basic mathematical and statistical analysis. It starts with a discussion of the real number system and some set theory, which includes a discussion of countable and uncountable infinity, which is an important and relevant part of advanced mathematics. From there, the book contains a chapter that provides a review of some of the key concepts of single-variable calculus. Then the book discusses a bit of so-called "measure" and how this relates to the integers, rationals, irrational, and real number systems. Finally, the book discusses probability, important probability distributions, and a good introduction to the basic concepts of statistical estimation and statistical inference (hypothesis testing). Along the way, the author interjects some of his own speculations about certain mathematical topics, and some comments about probability distributions, and in addition some topics involving space and time. It is not a textbook with exercises, but it has an abundance of examples throughout to explain the essential concepts and ideas. The book should appeal to students returning to school for graduate study, in a field such as statistics, that would benefit from an overview of many important topics in mathematics and statistics, which they will encounter in their advanced studies.

Fundamental Engineering Mathematics Book Excerpt:

This student friendly workbook addresses mathematical topics using SONG - a combination of Symbolic, Oral, Numerical and Graphical approaches. The text helps to develop key skills, communication both written and oral, the use of information technology, problem solving and mathematical modelling. The overall structure aims to help students take responsibility for their own learning, by emphasizing the use of self-assessment, thereby enabling them to become critical, reflective and continuing learners – an essential skill in this fast-changing world. The material in this book has been successfully used by the authors over many years of teaching the subject at Sheffield Hallam University. Their SONG approach is somewhat broader than the traditionally symbolic based approach and readers will find it more in the same vein as the Calculus Reform movement in the USA.
