W...

Differential Equations with Applications and Historical Notes, Third Edition

Featured

George F. Simmons
September 27, 2016

Fads are as common in mathematics as in any other human activity, and it is always difficult to separate the enduring from the ephemeral in the achievements of one’s own time. An unfortunate effect of the predominance of fads is that if a student doesn’t learn about such worthwhile topics as the...

Can you really keep your eye on the ball? How is massive data collection changing sports? Sports science courses are growing in popularity. The author’s course at Roanoke College is a mix of physics, physiology, mathematics, and statistics. Many students of both genders find it exciting to think ...

Mathematica Beyond Mathematics: The Wolfram Language in the Real World

Featured

José Guillermo Sánchez León
May 9, 2017

Although many books have been written about Mathematica, very few of them cover the new functionality added to the most recent versions of the program. Mathematica Beyond Mathematics: The Wolfram Language in the Real World introduces the new features using real-world examples, based on the experienc...

Model-free Hedging: A Martingale Optimal Transport Viewpoint focuses on the computation of model-independent bounds for exotic options consistent with market prices of liquid instruments such as Vanilla options. The author gives an overview of Martingale Optimal Transport, highlighting the differenc...

Introduction to Statistical Methods for Financial Models

Thomas A Severini
July 19, 2017

This book provides an introduction to the use of statistical concepts and methods to model and analyze financial data. The ten chapters of the book fall naturally into three sections. Chapters 1 to 3 cover some basic concepts of finance, focusing on the properties of returns on an asset. Chapters 4...

Radar Detection Theory of Sliding Window Processes

Graham Weinberg
July 18, 2017

Constant false alarm rate detection processes are important in radar signal processing. Such detection strategies are used as an alternative to optimal Neyman-Pearson based decision rules, since they can be implemented as a sliding window process running on a radar range-Doppler map. This book...

Steven I. Gordon, Brian Guilfoos
July 18, 2017

Introduction to Modeling and Simulation with MATLAB and Python is intended for students and professionals in science, social science, and engineering that wish to learn the principles of computer modeling, as well as basic programming skills. The book content focuses on meeting a set of basic...

Artificial Neural Networks for Engineers and Scientists: Solving Ordinary Differential Equations

S. Chakraverty, Susmita Mall
July 18, 2017

Differential equations play a vital role in the fields of engineering and science. Problems in engineering and science can be modeled using ordinary or partial differential equations. Analytical solutions of differential equations may not be obtained easily, so numerical methods have been developed...

Nonlinear Computational Solid Mechanics

Jamshid Ghaboussi, David A. Pecknold, Xiping Steven Wu
July 12, 2017

This book presents the fundamentals of nonlinear mechanics within a modern computational approach based mainly on finite element methods. Both material and geometric nonlinearities are treated. The topics build up from the mechanics of finite deformation of solid bodies through to nonlinear...

Why Are We Conscious?: A Scientist’s Take on Consciousness and Extrasensory Perception

David E.H. Jones
July 11, 2017

There are two huge gaps in scientific theory. One, the contradiction between classical and quantum mechanics, is discussed in many publications. The other, the total failure to explain why anything made of atoms (such as ourselves) can be conscious, has little acknowledgement. The main thesis of...

An Introduction to Physical Oncology: How Mechanistic Mathematical Modeling Can Improve Cancer Therapy Outcomes

Vittorio Cristini, Eugene Koay, Zhihui Wang
July 10, 2017

Physical oncology has the potential to revolutionize cancer research and treatment. The fundamental rationale behind this approach is that physical processes, such as transport mechanisms for drug molecules within tissue and forces exchanged by cancer cells with tissue, may play an equally...

Data Fusion Mathematics: Theory and Practice

Jitendra R. Raol
July 01, 2017

Fills the Existing Gap of Mathematics for Data Fusion Data fusion (DF) combines large amounts of information from a variety of sources and fuses this data algorithmically, logically and, if required intelligently, using artificial intelligence (AI). Also, known as sensor data fusion (SDF), the DF...
