Download A Panorama of Hungarian Mathematics in the Twentieth by Janos (Ed.) Horvath,Janos Horvath PDF

By Janos (Ed.) Horvath,Janos Horvath

an excellent interval of Hungarian arithmetic began in 1900 whilst Lipót Fejér came upon the summability of Fourier series.This used to be via the discoveries of his disciples in Fourier research and within the thought of analytic features. whilst Frederic (Frigyes) Riesz created sensible research and Alfred Haar gave the 1st instance of wavelets. Later the themes investigated by way of Hungarian mathematicians broadened significantly, and integrated topology, operator conception, differential equations, chance, and so forth. the current quantity, the 1st of 2, offers the most outstanding effects completed within the 20th century through Hungarians in research, geometry and stochastics. The booklet is offered to an individual with a minimal wisdom of arithmetic. it really is supplemented with an essay at the historical past of Hungary within the 20th century and biographies of these mathematicians who're not energetic. a listing of all people observed within the chapters concludes the volume.

The Fundamental Theorem of Algebra (Undergraduate Texts in Mathematics)

The elemental theorem of algebra states that any advanced polynomial should have a posh root. This ebook examines 3 pairs of proofs of the theory from 3 diversified parts of arithmetic: summary algebra, advanced research and topology. the 1st facts in every one pair is reasonably hassle-free and relies purely on what will be thought of straight forward arithmetic.

Introduction to Differential Geometry for Engineers (Dover Civil and Mechanical Engineering)

This impressive advisor provides very important mathematical instruments for varied engineering functions, supplying engineers the fundamental thoughts and terminology of contemporary worldwide differential geometry. compatible for autonomous examine in addition to a supplementary textual content for complicated undergraduate and graduate classes, this quantity additionally constitutes a precious reference for keep watch over, platforms, aeronautical, electric, and mechanical engineers.

Worlds Out of Nothing: A Course in the History of Geometry in the 19th Century (Springer Undergraduate Mathematics Series)

In response to the newest old study, Worlds Out of not anything is the 1st ebook to supply a path at the heritage of geometry within the nineteenth century. issues coated within the first a part of the ebook are projective geometry, particularly the concept that of duality, and non-Euclidean geometry. The ebook then strikes directly to the examine of the singular issues of algebraic curves (Plücker’s equations) and their function in resolving a paradox within the conception of duality; to Riemann’s paintings on differential geometry; and to Beltrami’s position in effectively setting up non-Euclidean geometry as a rigorous mathematical topic.

Perlen der Mathematik: 20 geometrische Figuren als Ausgangspunkte für mathematische Erkundungsreisen (German Edition)

Dieses Buch handelt von 20 geometrischen Figuren (Icons), die eine wichtige Rolle bei der Veranschaulichung mathematischer Beweise spielen. Alsina und Nelsen untersuchen die Mathematik, die hinter diesen Figuren steckt und die sich aus ihnen ableiten lässt. Jedem in diesem Buch behandelten Icons ist ein eigenes Kapitel gewidmet, in dem sein Alltagsbezug, seine wesentlichen mathematischen Eigenschaften sowie seine Bedeutung für visuelle Beweise vieler mathematischer Sätze betont werden.
