Educational Studies in Science and Mathematics

This volume, bringing together a number of experts in their respective fields, represents an important contribution to the topic of science and mathematics education. The contributions deal with various aspects of education, including epistemology, theoretical modelling, environmental sensitivity, probability distribution, technolo...

Scientific Programming

This book offers an introduction to computer programming, numerical analysis, and other mathematical ideas that extend the basic topics learned in calculus. It illustrates how mathematicians and scientists write computer programs, covering the general building blocks of programming languages and a description of how these concepts ...

Equations of Mathematical Physics

The differential equations of mathematical physics have a twofold character: their physical content and their mathematical solutions. This book discusses the basic tools of theoretical physicists, applied mathematicians, and engineers, providing detailed insights into linear algebra, Fourier transforms, special functions, Laplace a...

Fundamental Constants

The book is devoted to one of the important areas of theoretical and experimental physics—the calculation of the accuracy of measurements of fundamental physical constants. To achieve this goal, numerous methods and criteria have been proposed. However, all of them are focused on identifying a posteriori uncertainty caused by the i...

Hilbert, Göttingen and the Development of Modern Mathematics

David Hilbert is one of the outstanding mathematicians of the twentieth century and probably the most influential. This book highlights Hilbert’s contributions to mathematics, putting them in their historical, social and cultural context. In doing so, particular attention is paid to Hilbert’s axiomatic method and his proposal for t...

The Computer Simulation of Monté Carlo Methods and Random Phenomena

This book includes algorithms that illustrate the famous Monté Carlo Methods and the computer simulation of stochastic experiments in the areas of random numbers generation, the simulation of random phenomena, the computation of Pi and e (the base of logarithms), both simple and multiple integration, the computation of areas and vo...

Crossings Problems in Random Processes Theory and Their Applications in Aviation

The behavior of any real system is a process to a greater or lesser degree probabilistic. As a rule, it is impossible to specify exactly which external influences and internal mechanisms of interaction of the system components will be decisive in the future. As a consequence, we cannot accurately predict the behavior of the system....

Seismic Assessment and Retrofit of Reinforced Concrete Columns

Reinforced concrete columns play a very important role in structural performance. As such, it is essential to apply a suitable analytical tool to estimate their structural behaviour considering all failure mechanisms such as axial, shear, and flexural failures. This book highlights the development of a fiber beam-column element acc...

Statistical Techniques for Modelling Extreme Value Data and Related Applications

This book tackles some modern trends and methods in the modelling of extreme data. Usually such data arise from random phenomena such as floods, hurricanes, air and water pollutants, extreme claim sizes, life spans, and maximum sizes of ecological populations. It provides the latest statistical methods to model these random phenome...

The Fluid Catastrophe

By abandoning classical theory and adopting a liberating, empirical approach to fluid behaviour, this book sheds new light on Global Warming, on Ice Ages, why the wind makes waves bigger, and the origin of the Earth’s magnetic field. At heart, it is concerned with how meaning can be extracted from a sequence of measurements—time se...

The Origin of Geometry in India

This book is the first complete study of the origin of geometry in India. In Ancient India, brick-built fire-altars (citi-s) were ordained for the Soma sacrifice, a Vedic rite, which led to the compilation of rule-books for making and arranging bricks. These volumes, called Śulbasūtra-s, represent the first available texts of both ...

Exact Sciences in Greek Antiquity

This book consists of 24 papers on ancient Greek science and technology. It covers such areas as mathematics, physics, engineering, astronomical methods and instruments, and environmental issues. A great variety of topics are discussed, including medical care in ancient Olympiads, mathematical concepts in Plato, the concept of the ...
