This series is designed to capture new developments and summarize what is known over the entire field of mathematics, both pure and applied. It will include a broad range of monographs and research notes on current and developing topics that will appeal to academics, graduate students, and practitioners. Interdisciplinary books appealing not only to the mathematical community, but also to engineers, physicists, and computer scientists are encouraged.

This series will maintain the highest editorial standards, publishing well-developed monographs as well as research notes on new topics that are final, but not yet refined into a formal monograph. The notes are meant to be a rapid means of publication for current material where the style of exposition reflects a developing topic.

Musielak-Orlicz spaces came under a new light when applications to electrorheological hydrodynamics forced the particular case of the variable exponent Lebesgue spaces into the center stage. Since then, research efforts in have been oriented towards carrying over the results of classical analysis...

Elastic Waves: High Frequency Theory is concerned with mathematical aspects of the theory of high-frequency elastic waves, which is based on the ray method. The foundations of elastodynamics are presented along with the basic theory of plane and spherical waves. The ray method is then described in...

Matrix Inequalities and Their Extensions to Lie Groups gives a systematic and updated account of recent important extensions of classical matrix results, especially matrix inequalities, in the context of Lie groups. It is the first systematic work in the area and will appeal to linear algebraists...

Monomial Algebras, Second Edition presents algebraic, combinatorial, and computational methods for studying monomial algebras and their ideals, including Stanley–Reisner rings, monomial subrings, Ehrhart rings, and blowup algebras. It emphasizes square-free monomials and the corresponding graphs,...

This book describes, in a basic way, the most useful and effective iterative solvers and appropriate preconditioning techniques for some of the most important classes of large and sparse linear systems. The solution of large and sparse linear systems is the most time-consuming part for most of the...

In industry and economics, the most common solutions of partial differential equations involving multivariate numerical integration over cuboids include techniques of iterated one-dimensional approximate integration. In geosciences, however, the integrals are extended over potato-like volumes (such...

It is well known that symmetry-based methods are very powerful tools for investigating nonlinear partial differential equations (PDEs), notably for their reduction to those of lower dimensionality (e.g. to ODEs) and constructing exact solutions. This book is devoted to (1) search Lie and...
