Title: | The Art of Science [electronic resource] : From Perspective Drawing to Quantum Randomness |
Author(s): |
Rossella Lupacchini Annarita Angelini |
Date: | 2014 |
Publisher: | Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | Like linear perspective, complex numbers and probability are notable discoveries of the Renaissance. History has been quick to recognize the crucial impact of linear perspective on painting, but reluctant to acknowledge theimportance of complex numbe rs and probability. Both were treated with a great deal of suspicion by the scientific establishment and overlooked for many years. It was only in the twentieth century, when quantum theory defined the notionof complex probability amplitude, that complex numbers merged with probability and transformed the image of the physical world. From a theoretical point of view, however, the space opened to painting by linear perspective and thespace opened to science by complex numbers are equally valuable and share significant characteristics. By exploring that common ground, The Art of Science will lead the reader to complement Leonardos vision of painting as a scienceand to see science as an art. Its aim is to restore a visual dimension to mathematical sciences an element dulled, if not obscured, by historians, philosophers, and scientists themselves |

Publisher: | New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | This is the first comprehensive International Handbook on the History of Mathematics Education, covering a wide spectrum of epochs and civilizations, countries and cultures. Until now, much of the research into the rich and variedhistory of mathemati cs education has remained inaccessible to the vast majority of scholars, not least because it has been written in the language, and for readers, of an individual country. And yet a historical overview, howeverbrief, has become an indispensable element of nearly every dissertation and scholarly article. This handbook provides, for the first time, a comprehensive and systematic aid for researchers around the world in finding the informationthey need about historical developments in mathematics education, no t only in their own countries, but globally as well. Although written primarily for mathematics educators, this handbook will also be of interest to researchers of thehistory of education in general, as well as specialists in cultural and even social hist ory |

Title: | Paul Lvy and Maurice Frchet [electronic resource] : 50 Years of Correspondence in 107 Letters |
Author(s): |
Marc Barbut Bernard Locker Laurent Mazliak |
Date: | 2014 |
Publisher: | London : Springer London : Imprint: Springer |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | The fascinating correspondence between Paul Lvy and Maurice Frchet spans an extremely active period in French mathematics during the twentieth century. The letters of these two Frenchmen show their vicissitudes of research andpassionate enthusiasm fo r the emerging field of modern probability theory. The letters cover various topics of mathematical importance including academic careers and professional travels, issues concerning students and committees, andthe difficulties both mathematicians met to b e elected to the Paris Academy of Sciences. The technical questions that occupied Lvy and Frchet on almost a daily basis are the primary focus of these letters, which are charged withelation, frustration and humour. Their mathematical victories and setba cks unfolded against the dramatic backdrop of the two World Wars and the occupation of France, during which Lvy was obliged to go into hiding. The clear andpersistent desire of these mathematicians to continue their work whatever the circumstance testifie s to the enlightened spirit of their discipline which was persistent against all odds. The book contains a detailed and comprehensiveintroduction to the central topics of the correspondence. The original text of the letters are also annotated by numerous footnotes for helpful guidance. Paul Lvy and Maurice Frchet will be useful to anybody interested in thehistory of mathematics in the twentieth century and, in particular, the birth of modern probability theory |

Note: | Panel count data occur in studies that concern recurrent events, or event history studies, when study subjects are observed only at discrete time points. By recurrent events, we mean the event that can occur or happen multipletimes or repeatedly. Exa mples of recurrent events include disease infections, hospitalizations in medical studies, warranty claims of automobiles or system break-downs in reliability studies. In fact, many other fields yield eventhistory data too such as demographic studies, eco nomic studies and social sciences. For the cases where the study subjects are observed continuously, the resulting data are usually referred to as recurrent event data. This bookcollects and unifies statistical models and methods that have been developed for analyzing panel count data. It provides the first comprehensive coverage of the topic. The main focus is on methodology, but for the benefit of thereader, the applications of the methods to real data are also discussed along with numerical calculation s. There exists a great deal of literature on the analysis of recurrent event data. This book fills the void in the literature onthe analysis of panel count data. This book provides an up-to-date reference for scientists who are conducting research on the analysis of panel count data. It will also be instructional for those who need to analyze panel count datato answer substantive research questions. In addition, it can be used as a text for a graduate course in statistics or biostatistics that assumes a basic knowledge of probability and statistics. |

Note: | Conflicts in the form of wars, or competition among countries and industrial institutions are plenty in human history. The introduction of game theory in the middle of the twentieth century shed insights and enabled researchers toanalyze this subject with mathematical rigor. From the ground-breaking work of VonNeumann and Morgenston, modern game theory evolved enormously. In the last few decades, Dynamic game theory framework has been deepened and generalizedfrom the pioneering work on differential g ames by R. Isaacs, L.S. Pontryagin and his school, and on stochastic games by Shapley. This book will expose the reader to some of the fundamental methodology in non-cooperative game theory,and highlight some numerical methods, along with some relevant ap plications. Since the early development days, differential game theory has had a significant impact in such diverse disciplines as applied mathematics, economics, systemstheory, engineering, operations, research, biology, ecology, environmental sciences, among others. Modern game theory now relies on wide ranging mathematical and computational methods, and relevant applications that are rich andchallenging. Game theory has been widely recognized as an important tool in many fields. Importance of game theo ry to economics is illustrated by the fact that numerous game theorists, such as John Forbes Nash, Jr., Robert J. Aumannand Thomas C. Schelling, have won the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economics Sciences. Simply put, game-theory has the potential to reshape the analysis of human interaction |

Title: | Models of Science Dynamics [electronic resource] : Encounters Between Complexity Theory and Information Sciences |

Note: | Models of science dynamics aim to capture the structure and evolution of science. They are developed in an emerging research area in which scholars, scientific institutions and scientific communications become themselves basicobjects of research. In order to understand phenomena as diverse as the structure of evolving co-authorship networks or citation diffusion patterns, different models have been developed. They include conceptual models based onhistorical and ethnographic observations, mathematica l descriptions of measurable phenomena, and computational algorithms. Despite its evident importance, the mathematical modeling of science still lacks a unifying framework and acomprehensive research agenda. This book aims to fill this gap, reviewing and describing major threads in the mathematical modeling of science dynamics for a wider academic and professional audience. The model classes presented herecover stochastic and statistical models, game-theoretic approaches, agent-based simulations, populati on-dynamics models, and complex network models. The book starts with a foundational chapter that defines and operationalizesterminology used in the study of science, and a review chapter that discusses the history of mathematical approaches to modeling sc ience from an algorithmic-historiography perspective. It concludes with a survey of future challengesfor science modeling and discusses their relevance for science policy and science policy studies |

Note: | This book describes the life and work of Henri Poincar, detailing most of his unique achievements in mathematics and physics. It is divided into two partsthe first on Poincars life, and the second on his contributionsto the mathematical sciences. Apa rt from biographical details, attention is given to Poincars results on automorphic functions differential equations and dynamical systems celestial mechanics mathematical physics, in particularthe theory of the electron and relativity and topology (analy sis situs). A chapter on philosophy explains Poincars conventionalism in mathematics and his view of conventionalism in physics. The book shows how Poincar reachedhis fundamentally new results in many different fields, how he thought about problems, and h ow one should read his work. Simultaneously, it is made clear how analysis and geometry are intertwined in Poincars thinking and work. Indynamical systems, this becomes clear in his description of invariant manifolds, his association of differential equat ion flow with mappings, and his fixed-point theory. There is no comparable book on Poincar presenting such arelatively complete vision of his life and the working of his very original mind. Scientists and engineers as well as general readers interested in the history of science will find this book of interest. Reviews of this book:Thetitle of this biography is particularly well chosen : Henri Poincar was a true genius, and he was impatient. It gives a fair picture of both the man and the scientist, comple ted by particularly well chosen illustrations. Jean Mawhin,Universit Catholique de Louvain, Belgium Ferdinand Verhulst has written a true scientific biography, introducing Poincar the man, his cultural milieu, and his mathematics. This book shows why, a c entury after his death,Poincar's ideas still shape a substantial part of the mathematical sciences. Philip J Holmes, Princeton University, USA |

Note: | How did Pierre Fatou and Gaston Julia create what we now call Complex Dynamics, in the context of the early twentieth century and especially of the First World War? The book is based partly on new, unpublished sources.Who werePierre Fatou, Gaston Jul ia, Paul Montel? New biographical information is given on the little known mathematician that was Pierre Fatou. How did the serious WW1 injury of Julia influence mathematical life in France? From the reviews ofthe French edition: Audins book is indeed fil led with marvelous biographical information and analysis, dealing not just with the men mentioned in the books title but a large number of other players, too . the book underreview addresses itself to scholars for whom the history of mathematics has a pa rticular resonance and especially to mathematicians active, or even with merely an interest in, complex dynamics. presents it all to the reader in avery appealing form.

Note: | As Eugene Wigner stressed, mathematics has proven unreasonably effective in the physical sciences and their technological applications. The role of mathematics in the biological, medical and social sciences has been much moremodest but has recentl y grown thanks to the simulation capacity offered by modern computers. This book traces the history of population dynamics---a theoretical subject closely connected to genetics, ecology, epidemiology anddemography---where mathematics has brought si gnificant insights. It presents an overview of the genesis of several important themes: exponential growth, from Euler and Malthus to the Chinese one-child policy the development ofstochastic models, from Mendel's laws and the question of extinction of fa mily names to percolation theory for the spread of epidemics, and chaotic populations, where determinism and randomness intertwine. The reader of thisbook will see, from a different perspective, the problems that scientists face when governments as k for reliable predictions to help control epidemics (AIDS, SARS, swine flu), manage renewable resources (fishing quotas, spread ofgenetically modified organisms) or anticipate demographic evolutions such as aging. |

Note: | The Almagest, by the Greek astronomer and mathematician Ptolemy, is the most important surviving treatise on early mathematical astronomy, offering historians valuable insight into the astronomy and mathematics of the ancientworld. Pedersen's 1974 pu blication, A Survey of the Almagest, is the most recent in a long tradition of companions to the Almagest. Part paraphrase and part commentary, Pedersens work has earned the universal praise ofhistorians and serves as the definitive introductory text for students interested in studying the Almagest. In this revised edition, Alexander Jones, a distinguished authority on the history of early astronomy, providessupplementary information and commentary to the original text to account for scholarship that has appeared since 1974. This revision also incorporates various corrections to Pedersen's original text that have been identified since itspublication. This volume is intended to provide students of the history of astronomy with a self-contained introduction to the Almagest, helping them to understand and appreciate Ptolemys great and classical work. From thereviews of A Survey of the Almagest: Pedersen has performed his analysis with great care and technical accuracy. [The book] is written dearly and conci sely. It certainly achieves its aim of making the 'Almagest' accessibleand understandable to students of the history of astronomy. G. J. Toomer, Archives Internationales dHistoire des Sciences The organization of the 'Survey' is done in such a brilliant style that makes the technicallyprohibiting text of the 'Almagest' an enjoyable reading within a clear historical perspective George A. Saliba, Centaurus ['A Survey of the Almagest'] is a mine of well-organized, well-documented, carefully cross-indexedi nformation.

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: | A Lost Mathematician, Takeo Nakasawa [electronic resource] The Forgotten Father of Matroid Theory |

Note: | Springer 2013 e-book collections |
Note: | Matroid theory was invented in the middle of the 1930s by two mathematicians independently, namely, Hassler Whitney in the USA and Takeo Nakasawa in Japan. Whitney became famous, but Nakasawa remained anonymous until two decadesago. He left only four papers to the mathematical community, all of them written in the middle of the 1930s. It was a bad time to have lived in a country that had become as eccentric as possible. Just as Nazism became more and moreflamboyant in Europe in the 1930s, Japan becam e more and more esoteric and fanatical in the same time period. This book explains the little that is known about Nakasawas personal life in a Japan that had, among other failures, lostcontrol over its military. We do not know what forces caused him to be discharged from the Tokyo University of Arts and Sciences. His work was considered brilliant, his papers superb, if somewhat unconventional and mysterious innotation. We do know that, in the latter half of the 1930s, forced to give up his mathematical ca reer, he chose to live as a bureaucrat in Manchuria, at that time a puppet state of Japan. He died in 1946 at Khavarovsk, at the age of33, after one year of forced labor in Siberian and other USSR camps, without sufficient food or shelter to protect his h ealth. This book contains his four papers in German and their English translations as well as some extendedcommentary on the history of Japan during those years. The book also contains 14 photos of him or his family. Although the veil of mystery surroundi ng Nakasawas life has only been partially lifted, the work presented in this bookspeaks eloquently of a tragic loss to the mathematical community |

Note: | This milestone extensive work combines the essentials of history biography, chronology, political and economic background with the observations, theories, principles, laws and equations that constitute the specifics ofscience. The 5800-page Encyclo pedia arises from the conviction that the optimal perspective on science is through the lens of history, setting aside traditional divisions of discipline and specialty, and rising above geopoliticalboundaries. Reaching from 4,200 BCE to the 21st century CE, the Encyclopedia relates (as the author himself puts it) not only who did it and when it was done but also precisely what was done. The author, Ari Ben-Menahem, surveys100 generations of great thinkers, offering 2070 detailed biographies of scientists , engineers, explorers and inventors, who left their mark on the history of science and technology. The span of coverage is all-encompassing:mathematics, philosophy, logic, physical and environmental sciences (including physics, chemistry, astronomy, eart h and space sciences and cosmology), life sciences (biology, medicine, physiology, botany, zoology and biochemistry),associated engineering disciplines, and the social sciences (among them economics, psychology, sociology, anthropology, linguistics and mo re). The six-volume Encyclopedia also includes 380 articles summarizing the time-line of ideas inthe leading fields of science, technology, mathematics and philosophy, plus useful tables, figures and photos, and 20 Science Progress Reports detailing scien tific setbacks. Interspersed throughout are quotations, gathered fromthe wit and wisdom of sages, savants and scholars throughout the ages from antiquity to modern times |

Note: | The 19th century was a key period in the development of the mathematical sciences in Britain. Subjects such as rigid-body dynamics, hydrodynamics, elasticity, optics, heat, electricity and magnetism were extended and given firmerfoundations new areas of pure mathematics were explored and major advances took place in statistics, astronomy, geology and glaciology. The mid-19th century also brought dramatic changes to Cambridge University. Before 1850, the onlypathway to an honours degree was the Mathem atical Tripos - taken by all aspiring students whatever their destined careers - and the best teaching was provided by private tutors, the most renowned being the remarkable William Hopkins.This wide-ranging book tells the story of Hopkins and the educati on and subsequent careers of his top wranglers, many of whom went on to have illustrious careers as bishops, judges, politicians, scientists or educators. It draws onfirst-hand accounts of life at Cambridge to give the reader a glimpse inside its colleges , and it charts the evolution of the curriculum and the slow, often reluctant, reforms that led to Cambridges dominance of British highereducation. It surveys the scientific achievements of the time and considers the disproportionate contributions made by Scottish and Irish alumni in establishing a research community. Gradually, Cambridge was transformed from anear-moribund institution into a world-renowned centre for the mathematical and physical sciences. Many famous scientists and mathematicians are pr ofiled, among them G. Green, G.G. Stokes, J.C. Adams, W. Thomson (Lord Kelvin), A.Cayley and J.C. Maxwell, and many lesser-known figures too, including the first professors in Australia and the tutor to an Indian maharajah. In addition, and as a special h ighlight, Hopkins own collection of portraits of his topstudents, attributed to the artist T.C. Wageman, are published here in colour for the first time.

Note: | Worlds Out of Nothing is the first book to provide a course on the history of geometry in the 19th century. Based on the latest historical research, the book is aimed primarily at undergraduate and graduate students inmathematics but will also appeal to the reader with a general interest in the history of mathematics. Emphasis is placed on understanding the historical significance of the new mathematics: Why was it done? How - if at all - was itappreciated? What new questions did it generate? Topics covered in the first part of the book are projective geometry, especially the concept of duality, and non-Euclidean geometry. The book then moves on to the study of the singularpoints of algebraic curves (Plckers equations) and their role in resolving a p aradox in the theory of duality to Riemanns work on differential geometry and to Beltramis role in successfully establishing non-Euclideangeometry as a rigorous mathematical subject. The final part of the book considers how projective geometry, as exempli fied by Kleins Erlangen Program, rose to prominence, and looks at Poincars ideas about non-Euclidean geometryand their physical and philosophical significance. It then concludes with discussions on geometry and formalism, examining the Italian contributio n and Hilberts Foundations of Geometry geometry and physics, with a look at some ofEinsteins ideas and geometry and truth. Three chapters are devoted to writing and assessing work in the history of mathematics, with examples of sample questions in the sub ject, advice on how to write essays, and comments on whatinstructors should be looking for. The Springer Undergraduate Mathematics Series (SUMS) is designed for undergraduates in the mathematical sciences. From core foundational material to final year top ics, SUMS books take a fresh andmodern approach and are ideal for self-study or for a one- or two-semester course.

Note: | Recurrent event data arise in diverse fields such as medicine, public health, insurance, social science, economics, manufacturing and reliability. The purpose of this book is to present models and statistical methods for theanalysis of recurrent even t data. No single comprehensive treatment of these areas currently exists. The authors provide broad but detailed coverage of the major approaches to analysis, while also emphasizing the modeling assumptionsthat they are based on. Thus, they consider impo rtant models such as Poisson and renewal processes, with extensions to incorporate covariates or random effects. More general intensity-based models are also considered, as well assimpler models that focus on rate or mean functions. Parametric, nonparamet ric and semiparametric methodologies are all covered, with clear descriptions of procedures for estimation, testing and model checking. Important practicaltopics such as observation schemes and selection of individuals for study, the planning of randomize d experiments, events of several types, and the prediction of future events are considered. Methods of modeling and analysis areillustrated through many examples taken from health research and industry. The objectives and interpretations of different anal yses are discussed in detail, and issues of robustness are addressed. Statistical analysis of the examplesis carried out with S-PLUS software and code is given for some examples. This book is directed at graduate students, researchers, and applied statist icians working in industry, government or academia. Some familiarity with survivalanalysis is beneficial since survival software is used to carry out many of the analyses considered. This book can be used as a textbook for a graduate course on the analysi s of recurrent events or as a reference for a more generalcourse on event history analysis. Problems are given at the end of chapters to reinforce the material presented and to provide additional backgr |

Note: | Springer 2013 e-book collections |
Note: | This monograph contains a critical review of 50 years of results on questions of admissibility and minimaxity of estimators of parameters that are restricted to closed convex subsets of Rk . It presents results of approximately300 mostly-published pa pers on the subject, and points out relationships between them as well as open problems. The book does not touch on the subject of testing hypotheses for such parameter spaces. It does give an overview of knownalgorithms for computing maximum likelihood e stimators under order-restrictions. The book should be valuable as a reference for researchers and graduate students looking for what is known and unknown in the area of restrictedparameter-space-estimation. It assumes a good knowledge of decision theory. Constance van Eeden is Professeur mrite at the Universit de Montral, Honorary Professor at The University of British Columbia, and Professeureassocie at the Universit du Qubec Montral. She previously held appointments at the Centrum voor Wiskunde en Inf ormatica (19511960), Michigan State University (19601961), University of Minnesota (19611965), andUniversit de Montral (19651989). She was a General Editor of Statistical Theory and Method Abstracts (19902004) and Associate Editor of the Annals of Statist ics (19741977), The Canadian Journal of Statistics (19801994)and Annales des sciences mathmatiques du Qubec (19861998).
