Lacture Notes on Mathematical Olympiad Courses Vol 2 By Xu Jiagu

Description Olympiad mathematics is not a collection of techniques of solving mathematical problems but a system for advancing mathematical education. This book is based on the lecture notes of the mathematical Olympiad training courses conducted by the author in Singapore. Its scope and depth not only covers and exceeds the usual syllabus, but introduces a variety concepts and methods in modern mathematics.In each lecture, the concepts, theories and methods are taken as the core. The examples are served to explain and enrich their intension and to indicate their applications. Besides,…

Mathematical Methods for Physics and Engineering Third Edition By Riley Hobson and Bence

Description This set consists of the third edition of this highly acclaimed undergraduate textbook and its solutions manual containing complete worked solutions to half of the problems. Suitable for teaching all the mathematics for an undergraduate course in any of the physical sciences, the text provides lucid descriptions of all the topics, many worked examples, and over 800 exercises. New stand-alone chapters give a systematic account of the ‘special functions’ of physical science, cover an extended range of practical applications of complex variables, and give an introduction to quantum operators….

Mathematical Reasoning Writing and Proof By Ted Sundstrom

Description Mathematical Reasoning: Writing and Proof is a text for the first college mathematics course that introduces students to the processes of constructing and writing proofs and focuses on the formal development of mathematics. The primary goals of the text are to help students: Develop logical thinking skills and to develop the ability to think more abstractly in a proof oriented setting; develop the ability to construct and write mathematical proofs using standard methods of mathematical proof including direct proofs, proof by contradiction, mathematical induction, case analysis, and counterexamples; develop…

Fascinating Mathematical By Donald J Albers and Gerald L Alexanderson

Description Fascinating Mathematical People is a collection of informal interviews and memoirs of sixteen prominent members of the mathematical community of the twentieth century, many still active. The candid portraits collected here demonstrate that while these men and women vary widely in terms of their backgrounds, life stories, and worldviews, they all share a deep and abiding sense of wonder about mathematics.   Featured here–in their own words–are major research mathematicians whose cutting-edge discoveries have advanced the frontiers of the field, such as Lars Ahlfors, Mary Cartwright, Dusa McDuff, and Atle…

The Princeton Companion to Mathematics By Gowers Timothy

Description This is a one-of-a-kind reference for anyone with a serious interest in mathematics. Edited by Timothy Gowers, a recipient of the Fields Medal, it presents nearly two hundred entries, written especially for this book by some of the world’s leading mathematicians, that introduce basic mathematical tools and vocabulary; trace the development of modern mathematics; explain essential terms and concepts; examine core ideas in major areas of mathematics; describe the achievements of scores of famous mathematicians; explore the impact of mathematics on other disciplines such as biology, finance, and music–and…
