Note:The study of qualitative aspects of PDE's has always attracted much attention from the early beginnings. More recently, once basic issues about PDE's, such as existence, uniqueness and stability of solutions, have been understoodquite well, research on topological and/or geometric properties of their solutions has become more intense. The study of these issues is attracting the interest of an increasing number of researchers and is now a broad andwell-established research area, with contributions tha t often come from experts from disparate areas of mathematics, such as differential and convex geometry, functional analysis, calculus of variations, mathematical physics, to name afew. This volume collects a selection of original results and informative surveys by a group of international specialists in the field, analyzes new trends and techniques and aims at promoting scientific collaboration and stimulatingfuture developments and perspectives in this very active area of research

Title:Condition [electronic resource] : The Geometry of Numerical Algorithms

Felipe Cucker
Date:2013
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book gathers threads that have evolved across different mathematical disciplines into seamless narrative. It deals with condition as a main aspect in the understanding of the performance ---regarding both stability andcomplexity--- of numerical algorithms. While the role of condition was shaped in the last half-century, so far there has not been a monograph treating this subject in a uniform and systematic way. The book puts special emphasis onthe probabilistic analysis of numerical algorithms via the analysis of the corresponding condition. The exposition's level increases along the book, starting in the context of linear algebra at an undergraduate level and reaching inits third part the recent developments and partial solutions for Smale's 17th problem which can be explained within a graduate course. Its middle part contains a condition-based course on linear programming that fills a gap between thecurrent elementary expositions of the subject based on the simplex method and those focusing on convex programming

Note:This updated and revised second edition of the leading reference volume on distance metrics includes a wealth of new material that reflects advances in a field now regarded as an essential tool in many areas of pure and appliedmathematics. The publi cation of this volume coincides with intensifying research efforts into metric spaces and especially distance design for applications. Accurate metrics have become a crucial goal in computational biology, imageanalysis, speech recognition and information retrieval. Leaving aside the practical questions that arise during the selection of a good distance function, this work focuses on providing the research community with aninvaluable comprehensive listing of the main available distances. As well as provi ding standalone introductions and definitions, the encyclopedia facilitates swift cross-referencing with easily navigable bold-faced textual links tocore entries. In addition to distances themselves, the authors have collated numerous fascinating curiosit ies in their Whos Who of metrics, including distance-related notions and paradigms that enable applied mathematicians in othersectors to deploy research tools that non-specialists justly view as arcane. In expanding access to these techniques, and in many cases enriching the context of distances themselves, this peerless volume is certain to stimulate freshresearch

Note:Optimization has long been a source of both inspiration and applications for geometers, and conversely, discrete and convex geometry have provided the foundations for many optimization techniques, leading to a rich interplaybetween these subjects. Th e purpose of the Workshop on Discrete Geometry, the Conference on Discrete Geometry and Optimization, and the Workshop on Optimization, held in September 2011 at the Fields Institute, Toronto, was to furtherstimulate the interaction between geometers and optimizers. This volume reflects the interplay between these areas. The inspiring Fejes Tth Lecture Series, delivered by Thomas Hales of the University of Pittsburgh, exemplified thisapproach. While these fields have recently witnessed a lot of activity a nd successes, many questions remain open. For example, Fields medalist Stephen Smale stated that the question of the existence of a strongly polynomial timealgorithm for linear optimization is one of the most important unsolved problems at the beginning o f the 21st century. The broad range of topics covered in this volume demonstrates the many recent and fruitful connections betweendifferent approaches, and features novel results and state-of-the-art surveys as well as open problems

Title:Lectures on Sphere Arrangements the Discrete Geometric Side [electronic resource]
Author(s): Kroly Bezdek
Date:2013
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This monograph gives a short introduction to parts of modern discrete geometry, in addition to leading the reader to the frontiers of geometric research on sphere arrangements. The readership is aimed at advanced undergraduate andearly graduate stude nts, as well as interested researchers. It contains 30 open research problems ideal for graduate students and researchers in mathematics and computer science. Additionally, this book may be considered ideal for aone-semester advanced undergraduate or grad uate level course. The core of this book is based on three lectures given by the author at the Fields Institute during the thematic program on Discrete Geometry and Applications andcontains four basic topics. The first two deal with active areas that hav e been outstanding from the birth of discrete geometry, namely dense sphere packings and tilings. Sphere packings and tilings have a very strong connection tonumber theory, coding, groups, and mathematical programming. Extending the tradition of studying packings of spheres is the investigation of the monotonicity of volume under contractions of arbitrary arrangements of spheres. The thirdmajor topic can be found under the sections on ball-polyhedra that study the possibility of extending the theory of co nvex polytopes to the family of intersections of congruent balls. This section of the text is connected in many waysto the above-mentioned major topics as well as to some other important research areas such as that on coverings by planks (with close ties to geometric analysis). The fourth basic topic is discussed under covering balls by cylinders.

Note:Asymptotic Geometric Analysis is concerned with the geometric and linear properties of finite dimensional objects, normed spaces, and convex bodies, especially with the asymptotics of their various quantitative parameters as thedimension tends to inf inity. The deep geometric, probabilistic, and combinatorial methods developed here are used outside the field in many areas of mathematics and mathematical sciences. The Fields Institute Thematic Program in theFall of 2010 continued an established traditi on of previous large-scale programs devoted to the same general research direction. The main directions of the program included: * Asymptotic theory of convexity and normed spaces *Concentration of measure and isoperimetric inequalities, optimal transport ation approach * Applications of the concept of concentration * Connections with transformation groups and Ramsey theory * Geometrization of probability * Randommatrices * Connection with asymptotic combinatorics and complexity theory These directions are represented in this volume and reflect the present state of this important area of research. It will be of benefit to researchers working ina wide range of mathematical sciencesin particular functional analysis, combinatorics, convex geometry, dynamical systems, operator algebras, and computer science

Note:Distance Geometry:Theory, Methods, and Applications is the first collection of research surveys dedicated to distance geometry and its applications. The first part of the book discusses theoretical aspects of the DistanceGeometry Problem (DGP), where the relation between DGP and other related subjects are also presented. Covered topics include distance matrix theory, Euclidean distance matrix completion, multispherical structure of distance matrices,geometric algebra, algebraic distance geometry theo ry, visualization of K-dimensional structures in the plane, graph rigidity, and theory of discretizable DGP. The second part of this volume presents mathematical and computationalproperties of methods developed to the problems discussed in the first porti on, including continuous methods (based on Gaussian and hyperbolic smoothing, difference of convex functions, semidefinite programming, branch-and-bound),discrete methods (based on branch-and-prune, geometric build-up, graph rigidity), and also heuristics methods (based on simulated annealing, genetic algorithms, tabu search, variable neighborhood search). Applications comprise thethird part of the book, which is mainly devoted to the application of DGP to NMR structure calculation. This is an important a nd strongly multidisciplinary application in biology and biomedicine

Note:In many applications of graph theory, graphs are regarded as geometric objects drawn in the plane or in some other surface. The traditional methods of abstract graph theory are often incapable of providing satisfactoryanswers to questions arising in such applications. In the past couple of decades, many powerful new combinatorial and topological techniques have been developed to tackle these problems. Today geometric graph theory is a burgeoningfield with many striking results and appealing open ques tions. This contributed volume contains thirty original survey and research papers on important recent developments in geometric graph theory. The contributions were thoroughlyreviewed and written by excellent researchers in this field

Title:Functional Analysis, Calculus of Variations and Optimal Control [electronic resource]
Author(s): Francis Clarke
Date:2013
Publisher:London : Springer London : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Functional analysis owes much of its early impetus to problems that arise in the calculus of variations. In turn, the methods developed there have been applied to optimal control, an area that also requires new tools, such asnonsmooth analysis. This self-contained textbook gives a complete course on all these topics. It is written by a leading specialist who is also a noted expositor. This book provides a thorough introduction to functional analysis andincludes many novel elements as well as the stan dard topics. A short course on nonsmooth analysis and geometry completes the first half of the book whilst the second half concerns the calculus of variations and optimal control. Theauthor provides a comprehensive course on these subjects, from their inc eption through to the present. A notable feature is the inclusion of recent, unifying developments on regularity, multiplier rules, and the Pontryagin maximumprinciple, which appear here for the first time in a textbook. Other major themes include existen ce and Hamilton-Jacobi methods. The many substantial examples, and the more than three hundred exercises, treat such topics as viscositysolutions, nonsmooth Lagrangians, the logarithmic Sobolev inequality, periodic trajectories, and systems theory. They a lso touch lightly upon several fields of application: mechanics, economics, resources, finance, control engineering.Functional Analysis, Calculus of Variations and Optimal Control is intended to support several different courses at the first-year or secon d-year graduate level, on functional analysis, on the calculus of variations and optimalcontrol, or on some combination. For this reason, it has been organized with customization in mind. The text also has considerable value as a reference. Besides its ad vanced results in the calculus of variations and optimal control,its polished presentation of certain other topics (for example convex analysis, measurable selections, metric regularity, and nonsmooth a

Note:Polyhedral and Algebraic Methods in Computational Geometry provides a thorough introduction into algorithmic geometry and its applications. It presents its primary topics from the viewpoints of discrete, convex and elementaryalgebraic geometry. The f irst part of the book studies classical problems and techniquesthat refer to polyhedral structures. The authors include a study on algorithms for computing convex hulls as well as the construction ofVoronoi diagrams and Delone triangulations. The second p art of the book develops the primary concepts of (non-linear) computational algebraic geometry. Here, the book looks at Grbner bases and solving systems of polynomialequations. The theory is illustrated by applications in computer graphics, curve reconstr uction and robotics. Throughout the book, interconnections between computational geometry and other disciplines (such as algebraic geometry,optimization and numerical mathematics) are established. Polyhedral and Algebraic Methods in Computational Geometry is directed towards advanced undergraduates in mathematics and computer science, as well as towards engineeringstudents who are interested in the applications of computational geometry

Note:This book gives a comprehensive treatment of the fundamental necessary and sufficient conditions for optimality for finite-dimensional, deterministic, optimal control problems. The emphasis is on the geometric aspects of thetheory and on illustrating how these methods can be used to solve optimal control problems. It provides tools and techniques that go well beyond standard procedures and can be used to obtain a full understanding of the global structureof solutions for the underlying problem. The t ext includes a large number and variety of fully worked out examples that range from the classical problem of minimum surfaces of revolution to cancer treatment for novel therapyapproaches. All these examples, in one way or the other, illustrate the power of geometric techniques and methods. The versatile text contains material on different levels ranging from the introductory and elementary to the advanced.Parts of the text can be viewed as a comprehensive textbook for both advanced undergraduate and all level graduate courses on optimal control in both mathematics and engineering departments. The text moves smoothly from the moreintroductory topics to those parts that are in a monograph style were advanced topics are presented. While the presentation is mathematically rigorous, it is carried out in a tutorial style that makes the text accessible to a wideaudience of researchers and students from various fields, including the mathematical sciences and engineering.

Note:Mathematical Analysis: Foundations and Advanced Techniques for Functions of Several Variables builds upon the basic ideas and techniques of differential and integral calculus for functions of several variables, as outlined in anearlier introductory v olume. The presentation is largely focused on the foundations of measure and integration theory. The book begins with a discussion of the geometry of Hilbert spaces, convex functions and domains, and differentialforms, particularly k-forms. The exposition continues with an introduction to the calculus of variations with applications to geometric optics and mechanics.The authorsconclude with the study of measure and integration theory Borel, Radon, and Hausdorff measures and the derivation of measures. An appendix highlights important mathematicians and other scientists whose contributions have made a great impact on the development of theories in analysis. Thiswork may be used as a supplementary text in the classroom or for self-study by advanced undergra duate and graduate students and as a valuable reference for researchers in mathematics, physics, and engineering. One of the key strengthsof this presentation, along with the other four books on analysis published by the authors, is the motivation for und erstanding the subject through examples, observations, exercises, and illustrations. Other books published by theauthors all of which provide the reader with a strong foundation in modern-day analysis include: * Mathematical Analysis: Functions of One V ariable * Mathematical Analysis: Approximation and Discrete Processes * MathematicalAnalysis: Linear and Metric Structures and Continuity * Mathematical Analysis: An Introduction to Functions of Several Variables Reviews of previous volumes of Mathematica l Analysis: The presentation of the theory is clearly arranged,all theorems have rigorous proofs, and every chapter closes with a summing up of the results and exercises with different requ

Date:2011
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book is an introduction to the fundamental concepts and tools needed for solving problems of a geometric nature using a computer. It attempts to fill the gap between standard geometry books, which are primarily theoretical,and applied books on c omputer graphics, computer vision, robotics, or machine learning. This book covers the following topics: affine geometry, projective geometry, Euclidean geometry, convex sets, SVD and principal componentanalysis, manifolds and Lie groups, quadratic optimi zation, basics of differential geometry, and a glimpse of computational geometry (Voronoi diagrams and Delaunay triangulations). Some practical applications of the concepts presentedin this book include computer vision, more specifically contour grouping, motion interpolation, and robot kinematics. In this extensively updated second edition, more material on convex sets, Farkass lemma, quadraticoptimization and the Schur complement have been added. The chapter on SVD has been greatly expanded and now incl udes a presentation of PCA. The book is well illustrated and has chapter summaries and a large number of exercisesthroughout. It will be of interest to a wide audience including computer scientists, mathematicians, and engineers. Reviews of first edition: Gallier's book will be a useful source for anyone interested in applications ofgeometrical methods to solve problems that arise in various branches of engineering. It may help to develop the sophisticated concepts from the more advanced parts of geometry into useful tools for applications. (MathematicalReviews, 2001) ...it will be useful as a reference book for postgraduates wishing to find the connection between their current problem and the underlying geometry.

Note:This book presents the 20-year account of the Colorado Mathematical Olympiad its dreams and rewards, hard work and conflict. It features more than just original wonderful problems and their ingenious solutions it tells acompelling story involving th e lives of those who have been part of the Olympiad. The reader will meet Olympians and follow their paths as professionals. In the vast field of competition books, this book is unique, for it buildsbridges between Olympiads and real mathematics by demons trating through 20 Further Explorations, the trains of mathematical thought, showing how a solved Olympiad problem gives birth to deeper problems and leads to theforefront of mathematical research full of striking results and open problems. Like Gauss, Al exander Soifer would not hesitate to inject Eureka! at the right moment. Like van der Waerden, he can transform a dispassionate exercise inlogic into a compelling account of sudden insights and ultimate triumph.

Note:Both classical geometry and modern differential geometry have been active subjects of research throughout the 20th century and lie at the heart of many recent advances in mathematics and physics. The underlying motivating conceptfor the present book is that it offers readers the elements of a modern geometric culture by means of a whole series of visually appealing unsolved (or recently solved) problems that require the creation of concepts and tools ofvarying abstraction. Starting with such natural, classical objects as lines, planes, circles, spheres, polygons, polyhedra, curves, surfaces, convex sets, etc., crucial ideas and above all abstract concepts needed for attaining theresults are elucidated. These are conceptual notions, each built above t he preceding and permitting an increase in abstraction, represented metaphorically by Jacob's ladder with its rungs: the 'ladder' in the Old Testament, thatangels ascended and descended... In all this, the aim of the book is to demonstrate to readers the unceasingly renewed spirit of geometry and that even so-called elementary geometry is very much alive and at the very heart of thework of numerous contemporary mathematicians. It is also shown that there are innumerable paths yet to be explored and concep ts to be created. The book is visually rich and inviting, so that readers may open it at random places andfind much pleasure throughout according their own intuitions and inclinations. Marcel Berger is the author of numerous successful books on geometry, this book once again is addressed to all students and teachers of mathematics with anaffinity for geometry

Title:Markets with Transaction Costs [electronic resource] : Mathematical Theory

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The central mathematical concept in the theory of frictionless markets is a martingale measure. In this, the first monograph devoted to the theory of financial markets with transaction costs, the authors argue that, for financialmarkets with proporti onal transaction costs, this concept should be replaced by that of the consistent price system, which is a martingale evolving in the duals to the solvency cones. Three main subjects are considered: 1. The Lelandapproach to the hedging of contingent claim s based on approximate replication. 2. Arbitrage theory for markets with proportional transaction costs based on a geometric approach. 3. The consumption-investment problem analyzed usingviscosity solutions of the Hamilton-Jacobi-Bellman equation. The fir st part contains recent findings on hedging errors and limit theorems for Leland-type strategies. The rigorous mathematical analysis presented in the book is designedto serve as a platform for further studies. The second part includes a chapter on the arb itrage theory for frictionless markets in discrete time. It is presented as an introduction to the theory of markets with transaction costs, butcan also be read independently. The main subjects of the second part are no-arbitrage criteria and hedging theo rems for European and American options under transaction costs. In contrast to the classical theory, the value processes arevector-valued and the concept of the martingale measure is replaced by the concept of the consistent price system. Hedging theorems give dual descriptions of the set of initial endowments needed to super-replicate contingent claims.These descriptions are expressed in terms of consistent price systems. This volume provides a detailed study of various new phenomena arising in the prese nce of market friction in discrete and continuous time. The mathematics needed isa synthesis of ideas from finite-dimensional geometry, geometric functional analysis, and general theory of stochastic pr

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Geometric flows have many applications in physics and geometry. The mean curvature flow occurs in the description of the interface evolution in certain physical models. This is related to the property that such a flow is thegradient flow of the area functional and therefore appears naturally in problems where a surface energy is minimized. The mean curvature flow also has many geometric applications, in analogy with the Ricci flow of metrics on abstractriemannian manifolds. One can use this flow as a tool to obtain classification results for surfaces satisfying certain curvature conditions, as well as to construct minimal surfaces. Geometric flows, obtained from solutions ofgeometric parabolic equations, can be considered as an alternative tool to pr ove isoperimetric inequalities. On the other hand, isoperimetric inequalities can help in treating several aspects of convergence of these flows.Isoperimetric inequalities have many applications in other fields of geometry, like hyperbolic manifolds

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:About the author: Karoly Bezdek received his Dr.rer.nat.(1980) and Habilitation (1997) degrees in mathematics from the Etvs Lornd University, in Budapest and his Candidate of Mathematical Sciences (1985) and Doctor ofMathematical Sciences (1994) degr ees from the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. He is the author of more than 100 research papers and currently he is professor and Canada Research Chair of mathematics at the University of Calgary. Aboutthe book: This multipurpose book can serve as a textboo k for a semester long graduate level course giving a brief introduction to Discrete Geometry. It also can serve as a research monograph that leads the reader to the frontiers ofthe most recent research developments in the classical core part of discrete g eometry. Finally, the forty-some selected research problems offer a great chance to use the book as a short problem book aimed at advanced undergraduate andgraduate students as well as researchers. The text is centered around four major and by now classic al problems in discrete geometry. The first is the problem of densest sphere packings, which has more than 100 years of mathematicallyrich history. The second major problem is typically quoted under the approximately 50 years old illumination conjecture o f V. Boltyanski and H. Hadwiger. The third topic is on covering by planks and cylinders with emphases on theaffine invariant version of Tarski's plank problem, which was raised by T. Bang more than 50 years ago. The fourth topic is centered around the Kne ser-Poulsen Conjecture, which also is approximately 50 years old. All four topicswitnessed very recent breakthrough results, explaining their major role in this book

Title:Functional Analysis, Sobolev Spaces and Partial Differential Equations [electronic resource]
Author(s): Haim Brezis
Date:2010
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Uniquely, this book presents a coherent, concise and unified way of combining elements from two distinct worlds, functional analysis (FA) and partial differential equations (PDEs), and is intended for students who have agood background in real analys is. This text presents a smooth transition from FA to PDEs by analyzing in great detail the simple case of one-dimensional PDEs (i.e., ODEs), a more manageable approach for the beginner. Although there aremany books on functional analysis and many on PDEs , this is the first to cover both of these closely connected topics. Moreover, the wealth of exercises and additional material presented, leads the reader to the frontier of research.This book has its roots in a celebrated course taught by the author for many years and is a completely revised, updated, and expanded English edition of the important Analyse Fonctionnelle (1983). Since the French book was firstpublished, it has been translated into Spanish, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Romanian, Greek and Chin ese. The English version is a welcome addition to this list. The first part of the text deals with abstract results in FA and operatortheory. The second part is concerned with the study of spaces of functions (of one or more real variables) having specifi c differentiability properties, e.g., the celebrated Sobolev spaces, which lie at the heart of the modern theoryof PDEs. The Sobolev spaces occur in a wide range of questions, both in pure and applied mathematics, appearing in linear and nonlinear PDEs wh ich arise, for example, in differential geometry, harmonic analysis, engineering, mechanics,physics etc. and belong in the toolbox of any graduate student studying analysis

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Distance metrics and distances have become an essential tool in many areas of pure and applied Mathematics, and this encyclopedia is the first one to treat the subject in full. The book appears just as research intensifies intometric spaces and espec ially, distance design for applications. These distances are particularly crucial, for example, in computational biology, image analysis, speech recognition, and information retrieval. Here, an assessment of thepractical questions arising during selection of a good'' distance function has been left aside in favor of a comprehensive listing of the main available distances, a useful tool for the distance design community. This reader-friendlyreference offers both independent introductions and definitions, w hile at the same time making cross-referencing easy through hyperlink-like boldfaced references to original definitions. This high-quality publication is a mix ofreference resource and coffee-table book. A number of fascinating curiosities appear in this Whos Who' of distances. Besides distances themselves, the authors have collected many distance-related notions and paradigms, givingapplied mathematicians in other sectors easy access to those research tools that are arcane for non-specialists. Whats more , they come in ready-to-use fashion. This, as well as the appearance of some distances in different contexts,will be a stimulus to new research

Note:This commemorative book contains the 28 major articles that appeared in the 2008 Twentieth Anniversary Issue of the journal Discrete & Computational Geometry, and presents a comprehensive picture of the current state of thefield. Formed during the pa st few decades by the merger of the classical discipline of combinatorial and discrete geometry with the new field of computational geometry that sprang up in the 1970s, discrete and computational geometrynow claims the allegiance of a sizeable number of mathematicians and computer scientists all over the world, whose most important work has been appearing since 1986 in the pages of the journal. The articles in this volume, a number ofwhich solve long-outstanding problems in the field, were chosen by the editors of DCG for the importance of their results, for the breadth of their scope, and to show the intimate connections that have arisen between discrete andcomputational geometry and other areas of both computer science and mathematics. Apart from the a rticles, the editors present an expanded preface, along with a set of photographs of groups and individuals who have played a major rolein the history of the field during the past twenty years.

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book treats the interaction between discrete convex geometry, commutative ring theory, algebraic K-theory, and algebraic geometry. The basic mathematical objects are lattice polytopes, rational cones, affine monoids, thealgebras derived from the m, and toric varieties. The book discusses several properties and invariants of these objects, such as efficient generation, unimodular triangulations and covers, basic theory of monoid rings, isomorphismproblems and automorphism groups, homological prope rties and enumerative combinatorics. The last part is an extensive treatment of the K-theory of monoid rings, with extensions to toric varieties and their intersection theory. Thismonograph has been written with a view towards graduate students and resear chers who want to study the cross-connections of algebra and discrete convex geometry. While the text has been written from an algebraist's view point, alsospecialists in lattice polytopes and related objects will find an up-to-date discussion of affine m onoids and their combinatorial structure. Though the authors do not explicitly formulate algorithms, the book takes a constructiveapproach wherever possible. Winfried Bruns is Professor of Mathematics at Universitt Osnabrck. Joseph Gubeladze is Professor of Mathematics at San Francisco State University

Note:How Does One Cut a Triangle? is a work of art, and rarely, perhaps never, does one find the talents of an artist better suited to his intention than we find in Alexander Soifer and this book. Peter D. Johnson, Jr. Thisdelightful book considers and so lves many problems in dividing triangles into n congruent pieces and also into similar pieces, as well as many extremal problems about placing points in convex figures. The book is primarily meant forclever high school students and college students intere sted in geometry, but even mature mathematicians will find a lot of new material in it. I very warmly recommend the book and hope the readers will have pleasure in thinking aboutthe unsolved problems and will find new ones. Paul Erds It is impossible to c onvey the spirit of the book by merely listing the problems considered or even a number of solutions. The manner of presentation and the gentle guidancetoward a solution and hence to generalizations and new problems takes this elementary treatise out of t he prosaic and into the stimulating realm of mathematical creativity. Not only young talented people but dedicated secondaryteachers and even a few mathematical sophisticates will find this reading both pleasant and profitable. L.M. Kelly Mathematical Rev iews [How Does One Cut a Triangle?] reads like an adventure story. In fact, it is an adventure story,complete with interesting characters, moments of exhilaration, examples of serendipity, and unanswered questions. It conveys the spirit of mathematical di scovery and it celebrates the event as have mathematicians throughout history.Cecil Rousseau The beginner, who is interested in the book, not only comprehends a situation in a creative mathematical studio, not only is exposed to good mathematical taste, b ut also acquires elements of modern mathematicalculture.

Note:This book is devoted to a theory of gradient flows in spaces which are not necessarily endowed with a natural linear or differentiable structure. It consists of two parts, the first one concerning gradient flows in metric spacesand the second one dev oted to gradient flows in the space of probability measures on a separable Hilbert space, endowed with the Kantorovich-Rubinstein-Wasserstein distance. The two parts have some connections, due to the fact that thespace of probability measures provides an important model to which the metric theory applies, but the book is conceived in such a way that the two parts can be read independently, the first one by the reader more interested innon-smooth analysis and analysis in metric spaces, and the second one b y the reader more orientated towards the applications in partial differential equations, measure theory and probability

Title:Stochastic and Integral Geometry [electronic resource]

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Stochastic geometry has in recent years experienced considerable progress, both in its applications to other sciences and engineering, and in its theoretical foundations and mathematical expansion. This book, by two eminentspecialists of the subject, provides a solid mathematical treatment of the basic models of stochastic geometry -- random sets, point processes of geometric objects (particles, flats), and random mosaics. It develops, in ameasure-theoretic setting, the integral geometry for the moti on and the translation group, as needed for the investigation of these models under the usual invariance assumptions. A characteristic of the book is the interplay betweenstochastic and geometric arguments, leading to various major results. Its main theme , once the foundations have been laid, is the quantitative investigation of the basic models. This comprises the introduction of suitable parameters,in the form of functional densities, relations between them, and approaches to their estimation. Much addi tional information on stochastic geometry is collected in the section notes. As a combination of probability theory and geometry,the volume is intended for readers from either field. Probabilists with interest in random spatial structures, or motivated by the prospect of applications, will find an in-depth presentation of the geometric background. Geometers cansee integral geometry at work and may be surprised to learn how classical results from convex geometry have elegant applications in a stochastic se tting

Title:Generalized Curvatures [electronic resource]
Author(s): Jean-Marie Morvan
Date:2008
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The intent of this book is to set the modern foundations of the theory of generalized curvature measures. This subject has a long history, beginning with J. Steiner (1850), H. Weyl (1939), H. Federer (1959), P. Wintgen (1982),and continues today with young and brilliant mathematicians. In the last decades, a renewal of interest in mathematics as well as computer science has arisen (finding new applications in computer graphics, medical imaging,computational geometry, visualization ). Following a hist orical and didactic approach, the book introduces the mathematical background of the subject, beginning with curves and surfaces, going on with convex subsets, smoothsubmanifolds, subsets of positive reach, polyhedra and triangulations, and ending with su rface reconstruction. We focus on the theory of normal cycle, which allows to compute and approximate curvature measures of a large class ofsmooth or discrete objects of the Euclidean space. We give explicit computations when the object is a 2 or 3 dimens ional polyhedron. This book can serve as a textbook to any mathematician or computer scientist, engineer or researcherwho is interested in the theory of curvature measures

Note:This collection of original papers related to the Israeli GAFA seminar (on Geometric Aspects of Functional Analysis) during the years 2004-2005 follows the long tradition of the previous volumes that reflect the general trends ofthe Theory and are a source of inspiration for research. Most of the papers deal with different aspects of the Asymptotic Geometric Analysis, ranging from classical topics in the geometry of convex bodies, to inequalities involvingvolumes of such bodies or, more generally, lo g-concave measures, to the study of sections or projections of convex bodies. In many of the papers Probability Theory plays an important role in some limit laws for measures associatedwith convex bodies, resembling Central Limit Theorems, are derive and in others probabilistic tools are used extensively. There are also papers on related subjects, including a survey on the behavior of the largest eigenvalue of randommatrices and some topics in Number Theory

Title:History of Banach Spaces and Linear Operators [electronic resource]
Author(s): Albrecht Pietsch
Date:2007
Publisher:Boston, MA : Birkhuser Boston
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Named for Banach, one of the great mathematicians of the twentieth century, the concept of Banach spaces figures prominently in the study of functional analysis with applications to integral and differential equations,approximation theory, harmonic a nalysis, convex geometry, numerical mathematics, analytic complexity, and probability theory. Written by a distinguished specialist in functional analysis, this book presents a comprehensive treatment ofthe history of Banach spaces and (abstract bounded) linear operators. While other historical texts on the subject focus on developments before 1950, this one is mainly devoted to the second half of the 20th century. Banach space theoryis presented in a broad mathematical context, using tools from such area s as set theory, topology, algebra, combinatorics, probability theory, and logic. Equal emphasis is given to both spaces and operators. Numerous examples andcounterexamples elucidate the scope of the underlying concepts. As a stimulus for further research , the text also contains many problems which have not been previously solved. The book may serve as a reference for researchers and as anintroduction for graduate students who want to learn Banach space theory with some historical flavor. Helpful informat ion is also provided for professors preparing their own lectures on functional analysis

Note:The field of convex geometry has become a fertile subject of mathematical activity in the past few decades. This exposition, examining in detail those topics in convex geometry that are concerned with Euclidean space, is enrichedby numerous examples, illustrations, and exercises, with a good bibliography and index. The theory of intrinsic volumes for convex bodies, along with the Hadwiger characterization theorems, whose proofs are based on beautiful geometricideas such as the rounding theorems and t he Steiner formula, are treated in Part 1. In Part 2 the reader is given a survey on curvature and surface area measures and extensions of the class of convex bodies. Part 3 is devoted to theimportant class of star bodies and selectors for convex and star bodies, including a presentation of two famous problems of geometric tomography: the Shephard problem and the BusemannPetty problem. Selected Topics in Convex Geometryrequires of the reader only a basic knowledge of geometry, linear algebra, analysis, to pology, and measure theory. The book can be used in the classroom setting for graduates courses or seminars in convex geometry, geometric and convexcombinatorics, and convex analysis and optimization. Researchers in pure and applied areas will also benefi t from the book

Note:Convex functions play an important role in many branches of mathematics, as well as other areas of science and engineering. The present text is aimed to a thorough introduction to contemporary convex function theory, whichentails a powerful and elega nt interaction between analysis and geometry. A large variety of subjects are covered, from one real variable case (with all its mathematical gems) to some of the most advanced topics such as the convexcalculus, Alexandrovs Hessian, the variational approa ch of partial differential equations, the Prkopa-Leindler type inequalities and Choquet's theory. This book can be used for a one-semester graduate course on Convex Functionsand Applications, and also as a valuable reference and source of inspiration for researchers working with convexity. The only prerequisites are a background in advanced calculus and linear algebra. Each section ends with exercises,while each chapter ends with comments covering supplementary material and historical information. Many re sults are new, and the whole book reflects the authors own experience, both in teaching and research. About the authors:Constantin P.
