Nonstandard analysis by
Abraham Robinson(
Book
)
69 editions published between 1966 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 1,114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Considered by many to be Abraham Robinson's magnum opus, this book offers an explanation of the development and applications of nonstandard analysis by the mathematician who founded the subject. Nonstandard analysis grew out of Robinson's attempt to resolve the contradictions posed by infinitesimals within calculus. He introduced this new subject in a seminar at Princeton in 1960, and it remains as controversial today as it was then. This paperback reprint of the 1974 revised edition is indispensable reading for anyone interested in nonstandard analysis. It treats in rich detail many areas of application, including topology, functions of a real variable, functions of a complex variable, and normed linear spaces, together with problems of boundary layer flow of viscous fluids and rederivations of SaintVenant's hypothesis concerning the distribution of stresses in an elastic body

Abraham Robinson : the creation of nonstandard analysis : a personal and mathematical odyssey by
Joseph W Dauben(
Book
)
8 editions published between 1995 and 2014 in English and held by 543 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"One of the most prominent mathematicians of the twentieth century, Abraham Robinson discovered and developed nonstandard analysis, a rigorous theory of infinitesimals that he used to unite mathematical logic with the larger body of historic and modern mathematics. In this first biography of Robinson, Joseph Dauben reveals the mathematician's personal life to have been a dramatic one: developing his talents in spite of war and ethnic repression, Robinson personally confronted some of the worst political troubles of our times. With the skill and expertise familiar to readers of Dauben's earlier works, the book combines an explanation of Robinson's revolutionary achievements in pure and applied mathematics with a description of his odyssey from Hitler's Germany to the United States via conflictridden Palestine and wartime Europe." "Robinson was born in Prussia in 1918. As a boy, he fled with his mother and brother Saul to Palestine. A decade later he narrowly escaped from Paris as the Germans invaded France. Having spent the rest of World War II in England, at the Royal Aircraft Establishment in Farnborough, he began his teaching career at the Royal College of Aeronautics. Subsequently he moved to universities in Canada, Israel, and finally the United States. A joint appointment in mathematics and philosophy at UCLA led to a position at Yale University, where Robinson served as Sterling Professor of Mathematics until his untimely death at the age of fiftyfive."Jacket
