W...

Differential Equations with Applications and Historical Notes


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...

Mathematica Beyond Mathematics: The Wolfram Language in the Real World


José Guillermo Sánchez León
May 22, 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...

Modeling and Computing for Geotechnical Engineering: An Introduction

M.S. Rahman, M.B. Can Ulker
August 15, 2018

Modeling and computing is becoming an essential part of the analysis and design of an engineered system. This is also true "geotechnical systems", such as soil-foundations, earth dams and other soil structure systems. The general goal of ‘modeling and computing’ is to predict and understand the...

Control System Analysis and Identification with MATLAB®: Block Pulse and Related Orthogonal Functions

Anish Deb, Srimanti Roychoudhury
August 15, 2018

This book covers block pulse and related functions for the analysis and identification of continuous and discrete-time systems. It covers ‘functions related to block pulse functions’ and pulse-width modulated generalized block pulse functions including their applications including MATLAB based...

Operations Research: A Practical Introduction, Second Edition

Michael Carter, Camille C. Price, Ghaith Rabadi
August 14, 2018

Operations Research: A Practical Introduction is just that: a hands-on approach to the field of operations research (OR) and a useful guide for using OR techniques in scientific decision making, design, analysis and management. The text accomplishes two goals. First, it provides readers with an...

Green's Functions with Applications

Dean G. Duffy
August 14, 2018

Since publication of the first edition over a decade ago, Green’s Functions with Applications has provided applied scientists and engineers with a systematic approach to the various methods available for deriving a Green’s function. This fully revised Second Edition retains the same purpose, but...

Untangling Complex Systems: A Grand Challenge for Science

Pier Luigi Gentili
August 10, 2018

Complex Systems are natural systems that science is unable to describe exhaustively. Examples of Complex Systems are both unicellular and multicellular living beings; human brains; human immune systems; ecosystems; human societies; the global economy; the climate and geology of our planet. This...

Gorenstein homological algebra is an important area of mathematics, with applications in commutative and noncommutative algebra, model category theory, representation theory, and algebraic geometry. While in classical homological algebra the existence of the projective, injective, and flat...

Linear Methods: A General Education Course

David Hecker, Stephen Andrilli
August 09, 2018

Linear Methods: A General Education Course is expressly written for non-mathematical students, particularly freshmen taking a required core mathematics course. Rather than covering a hodgepodge of different topics as is typical for a core mathematics course, this text encourages students to explore...
