The analytical theory of heat by Jean-Baptiste-Joseph Fourier( Book )

137 editions published between 1822 and 2017 in 6 languages and held by 1,275 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

French mathematician Joseph Fourier's Théorie Analytique de la Chaleur was originally published in 1822. In this groundbreaking study, arguing that previous theories of mechanics advanced by such outstanding scientists as Archimedes, Galileo, Newton and their successors did not explain the laws of heat, Fourier set out to study the mathematical laws governing heat diffusion and proposed that an infinite mathematical series may be used to analyse the conduction of heat in solids: this is now known as the 'Fourier Series'. His work paved the way for modern mathematical physics. This book will be especially useful for mathematicians who are interested in trigonometric series and their applications, and it is reissued simultaneously with Alexander Freeman's English translation, The Analytical Theory of Heat, of 1878

Following the French Revolution, the physicist and mathematician Jean Baptiste Joseph Fourier (1768–1830) taught at the École Normale Supérieure and later succeeded Lagrange at the École Polytechnique. He was promoted to administrative positions under Napoleon, but continued to pursue his scientific interests. From 1822 until his death he served as the permanent secretary for mathematical sciences at the Académie des Sciences. Thanks to his substantial contributions to the field, Fourier's name has passed as an adjective into the mathematical vocabulary of every major language. These selected works were edited by the mathematician Jean Gaston Darboux (1842–1917) and published in two volumes between 1888 and 1890. Volume 1 is given over entirely to the immortal Théorie analytique de la chaleur (1822), from which the world learnt about the heat equation and the series which bears Fourier's name

1 edition published in 1952 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Operational Research and Networks by Gerd Finke( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This book presents the principal concepts of operations research (OR) as tools for the planning, support, and management of various types of networks, including both physical and logical networks. It analyzes real problems, and offers a collection of models for many application areas, together with the corresponding solution techniques. Following this, important application areas are addressed, such as project scheduling, distribution networks, telecommunication networks, and planning of satellite imaging. Anyone involved in the theory or practice in this field will find this a vital resource
