Song of Two Worlds

Alan Lightman
October 31, 2017

In Alan Lightman's new book, a verse narrative, we meet a man who has lost his faith in all things following a mysterious personal tragedy. After decades of living "hung like a dried fly," emptied and haunted by his past, the narrator awakens one morning revitalized and begins a Dante-like journey...

Measure and Probability

Siva Athreya, V. S. Sunder
October 31, 2017

This book covers the fundamentals of measure theory and probability theory. It begins with the construction of Lebesgue measure via Caratheodory’s outer measure approach and goes on to discuss integration and standard convergence theorems and contains an entire chapter devoted to complex measures,...

Ordinary Differential Equations: Applications, Models, and Computing

Charles Roberts
October 31, 2017

In the traditional curriculum, students rarely study nonlinear differential equations and nonlinear systems due to the difficulty or impossibility of computing explicit solutions manually. Although the theory associated with nonlinear systems is advanced, generating a numerical solution with a...
