G.W. Stewart: Selected Works with Commentaries by Iain S. Duff (auth.), Misha E. Kilmer, Dianne P. O'Leary

By Iain S. Duff (auth.), Misha E. Kilmer, Dianne P. O'Leary (eds.)

Published in honor of his seventieth birthday, this quantity explores and celebrates the paintings of G.W. (Pete) Stewart, a world-renowned professional in computational linear algebra. it truly is extensively accredited that Stewart is the successor to James Wilkinson, the 1st titanic within the box, taking on the perturbation idea learn that Wilkinson so ably all started and utilizing it as a starting place for algorithmic insights.

Stewart’s effects on rounding blunders in numerical computations supplied easy realizing of floating-point computation. His effects on perturbation of eigensystems, pseudo-inverses, least-squares difficulties, and matrix factorizations are basic to numerical perform this present day. His algorithms for the singular worth decomposition, updating and downdating matrix factorizations, and the eigenproblem broke new flooring and are nonetheless common in increasingly more functions. Stewart’s papers, largely pointed out, are characterised via beauty in theorems and algorithms and transparent, concise, and lovely exposition. His six renowned textbooks are first-class resources of information and historical past. Stewart is a member of the nationwide Academy of Engineering and has acquired a variety of extra honors, together with the Bauer Prize.

Key beneficial properties of this quantity include:

* Forty-four of Stewart’s such a lot influential study papers in topic parts: matrix algorithms and rounding and perturbation theory

* A biography of Stewart

* an entire checklist of Stewart’s courses, scholars, and honors

* chosen photographs

* Commentaries on Stewart’s works in collaboration with top specialists within the field

G.W. Stewart: chosen Works with Commentaries will attract graduate scholars, practitioners, and researchers in computational linear algebra and the background of mathematics.

Extending Knowledge in Practice Primary Mathematics by Alice Hansen

By Alice Hansen

Nonetheless the largest challenge for plenty of on preliminary instructor education classes is the purchase of topic wisdom and the power to translate that into potent instructing. This e-book addresses this - construction at the center topic wisdom lined within the attaining QTS sequence and referring to it to lecture room perform. It helps trainees in extending and deepening their wisdom of Maths and demonstrating find out how to use it on making plans and imposing classes. useful and updated instructing examples are used to obviously contextualize topic wisdom. a transparent specialize in lecture room perform is helping trainees to construct self belief and advance their very own educating options.

The Second Scientific American Book of Mathematical Puzzles by Martin Gardner

By Martin Gardner

This pleasant assortment from the magician of math introduces readers to magic squares, the Generalized Ham Sandwich Theorem, origami, electronic roots, an replace of the Induction video game of Eleusis, Dudeney puzzles, the maze at Hampton courtroom palace, and plenty of extra mathematical puzzles and rules.

"Gardner is frequently the clown prince of technology. . . . His Mathematical video games column in Scientific American is without doubt one of the few bridges over C. P. Snow's well-known 'gulf of mutual incomprehension' that lies among the technical and literary cultures."—Time
