A Panorama of Hungarian Mathematics in the Twentieth by Janos (Ed.) Horvath,Janos Horvath

By Janos (Ed.) Horvath,Janos Horvath

an excellent interval of Hungarian arithmetic all started in 1900 while Lipót Fejér stumbled on the summability of Fourier series.This used to be by means of the discoveries of his disciples in Fourier research and within the conception of analytic capabilities. even as Frederic (Frigyes) Riesz created useful research and Alfred Haar gave the 1st instance of wavelets. Later the themes investigated through Hungarian mathematicians broadened significantly, and integrated topology, operator idea, differential equations, chance, and so forth. the current quantity, the 1st of 2, offers one of the most outstanding effects completed within the 20th century via Hungarians in research, geometry and stochastics. The publication is available to somebody with a minimal wisdom of arithmetic. it truly is supplemented with an essay at the heritage of Hungary within the 20th century and biographies of these mathematicians who're not lively. an inventory of all folks mentioned within the chapters concludes the volume.

Differential Geometry of Varieties with Degenerate Gauss Maps (CMS Books in Mathematics)

This booklet surveys the differential geometry of sorts with degenerate Gauss maps, utilizing relocating frames and external differential varieties in addition to tensor tools. The authors illustrate the constitution of types with degenerate Gauss maps, ascertain the singular issues and singular types, locate focal photographs and build a class of the types with degenerate Gauss maps.

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​This quantity includes the invited contributions from talks introduced within the Fall 2011 sequence of the Seminar on Mathematical Sciences and functions 2011 at Virginia kingdom college. participants to this quantity, who're  best researchers of their fields, current their paintings in how to generate real interdisciplinary interplay.

Plane and Solid Geometry: Selected Topics in Plane and Solid Geometry (Universitext)

It is a e-book on Euclidean geometry that covers the normal fabric in a very new approach, whereas additionally introducing a few new subject matters that will be compatible as a junior-senior point undergraduate textbook. the writer doesn't start within the conventional demeanour with summary geometric axioms. as an alternative, he assumes the true numbers, and starts off his therapy by way of introducing such smooth suggestions as a metric area, vector area notation, and teams, and therefore lays a rigorous foundation for geometry whereas even as giving the coed instruments that may be helpful in different classes.

A Fête of Topology: Papers Dedicated to Itiro Tamura

A Fête of Topology: Papers devoted to Itiro Tamura makes a speciality of the development within the techniques, methodologies, and methods desirous about topology, together with foliations, cohomology, and floor bundles. The booklet first takes a glance at leaf closures in Riemannian foliations and differentiable singular cohomology for foliations.
