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...

Explores the Origin of the Recent Banking Crisis and how to Preclude Future Crises Shedding new light on the recent worldwide banking debacle, The Banking Crisis Handbook presents possible remedies as to what should have been done prior, during, and after the crisis. With contributions from...

Model-free Hedging: A Martingale Optimal Transport Viewpoint

Pierre Henry-Labordere
May 18, 2017

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...

Stochastic H2/H 8 Control: A Nash Game Approach

Weihai Zhang, Lihua Xie, Bor-Sen Chen
May 16, 2017

The H∞ control has been one of the important robust control approaches since the 1980s. This book extends the area to nonlinear stochastic H2/H∞ control, and studies more complex and practically useful mixed H2/H∞ controller synthesis rather than the pure H∞ control. Different from the commonly...

Discrete Mathematics and Applications, Second Edition

Kevin Ferland
May 05, 2017

This book is intended for a one-semester course in discrete mathematics. Such a course is typically taken by mathematics, mathematics education, and computer science majors, usually in their sophomore year. Calculus is not a prerequisite to use this book. Part one focuses on how to write proofs,...

Stochastic Communities: A Mathematical Theory of Biodiversity

A. K. Dewdney
May 05, 2017

Stochastic Communities presents a theory of biodiversity by analyzing the distribution of abundances among species in the context of a community. The basis of this theory is a distribution called the "J distribution." This distribution is a pure hyperbola and mathematically implied by the "...
