Title: | Evaluating Measurement Accuracy [electronic resource] : A Practical Approach |

Note: | The goal of Evaluating Measurement Accuracy: A Practical Approach is to present methods for estimating the accuracy of measurements performed in industry, trade, and scientific research. From developing the theory of indirectmeasurements to proposing new methods of reduction, transformation, and enumeration, this work encompasses the full range of measurement data processing. It includes many examples that illustrate the application of general theory totypical problems encountered in measurement prac tice. As a result, the book serves as an inclusive reference work for data processing of all types of measurements: single and multiple, combined and simultaneous, direct (both linear andnonlinear), and indirect (both dependent and independent). It is a w orking tool for experimental scientists and engineers of all disciplines who work with instrumentation. It is also a good resource for natural science and engineeringstudents and for technicians performing measurements in industry. A key feature of the bo ok is a new general theory of measurements that is both well-grounded and oriented towards real-life needs of measurement practitioners. Althoughthe traditional theory focuses on multiple measurements, single measurements are the ones most commonly used. This book presents methods for evaluating accuracy of single measurements and answers other fundamental questions notaddressed adequately by the traditional theory, such as how to combine various components of measurement inaccuracy when evaluating the co mplete uncertainty of a measurement result. For its second edition, the book adds significant newmaterial to incorporate recent metrological developments and expand coverage, including: The new method of enumeration of experimental data processing for i ndependent indirect multiple measurements which isprecise and does not rely on questionable assumptions. The analysis of reliability of estimates of statistical pa |

Title: | Topology, Geometry and Gauge fields [electronic resource] : Foundations |
Author(s): |
Gregory L Naber |
Date: | 2011 |
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 is a book on topology and geometry, and like any book on subjects as vast as these, it has a point of view that guided the selection of topics. The authors point of view is that the rekindled interest that mathematics andphysics have shown in ea ch other of late should be fostered, and that this is best accomplished by allowing them to cohabit. The goal is to weave together rudimentary notions from the classical gauge theories of physics and thetopological and geometrical concepts that became the mathematical models of these notions. The reader is assumed to have a minimal understanding of what an electromagnetic field is, a willingness to accept a few of the more elementarypronouncements of quantum mechanics, and a solid background in real analy sis and linear algebra with some of the vocabulary of modern algebra. To such a reader we offer an excursion that begins with the definition of a topologicalspace and finds its way eventually to the moduli space of anti-self-dual SU(2)-connections on S4 w ith instanton number -1. This second edition of the book includes a new chapter on singular homology theory and a new appendix outliningDonaldsons beautiful application of gauge theory to the topology of compact, simply connected , smooth 4-manifolds with definite intersection form. Reviews of the first edition: It is unusual to find a book so carefully tailoredto the needs of this interdisciplinary area of mathematical physicsNaber combines a deep knowledge of his subject with an excellent informal writi ng style. (NZMS Newsletter) ...this book should be very interesting formathematicians and physicists (as well as other scientists) who are concerned with gauge theories. (ZENTRALBLATT FUER MATHEMATIK) The book is well written and the examples do a great s ervice to the reader. It will be a helpfulcompanion to anyone teaching or studying gauge theory (Mathematical Reviews) |

Title: | Geometry [electronic resource] : Our Cultural Heritage |

Audun Holme |

Publisher: | Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg |

Note: | Springer e-book platform |
Note: | Springer 2013 e-book collections |
Note: | This book contains selected topics from the history of geometry, with modern proofs of some of the results, as well as a fully modern treatment of selected basic issues in geometry. It is geared towards the needs of futuremathematics teachers. All to o often the geometry which goes into the syllabus for these students presents the material in a pedantic and formalistic style, suppressing its dynamic character and its role as part of the foundation of ourcommon cultural heritage. As such, one of my goa ls is to open up these aspects of the field another is to extend an invitation to mathematics in general. It is an unfortunate fact that today, at a time when mathematics and knowledgeof mathematics are more important than ever, phrases like math avoidanc e and math anxiety are very much in the public vocabulary. Making a serious effort to heal these ills is an essential task. Thus the book also aims at an informedpublic, interested in making a new beginning in math.For the 2nd edition, some of the histori cal material giving historical context has been expanded and numerous illustrations have been added. The main difference is however theinclusion of a large number of exercises with some suggestions for solutions.For excerpts from reviews from the first ed ition have a look at http://www.springer.com/978-3-540-41949-5 |

Title: | A Taste of Topology [electronic resource] |

Publisher: | New York, NY : Springer New York |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | Springer e-book platform |
Note: | Springer 2013 e-book collections |
Note: | If mathematics is a language, then taking a topology course at the undergraduate level is cramming vocabulary and memorizing irregular verbs: a necessary, but not always exciting exercise one has to go through before one can readgreat works of litera ture in the original language. The present book grew out of notes for an introductory topology course at the University of Alberta. It provides a concise introduction to set-theoretic topology (and to a tiny littlebit of algebraic topology). It is accessi ble to undergraduates from the second year on, but even beginning graduate students can benefit from some parts. Great care has been devoted to the selection of examples that are notself-serving, but already accessible for students who have a background i n calculus and elementary algebra, but not necessarily in real or complex analysis. In some points, the book treats its material differently than other texts onthe subject: * Baire's theorem is derived from Bourbaki's Mittag-Leffler theorem * Nets are use d extensively, in particular for an intuitive proof of Tychonoff's theorem * A short and elegant, but little known proof for theStone-Weierstrass theorem is given |
