Abraham Robinson : the creation of nonstandard analysis : a personal and mathematical odyssey by
Joseph W Dauben(
Book
)
9 editions published between 1995 and 2014 in English and held by 865 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

Nonarchimedean fields and asymptotic expansions by
A. H Lightstone(
Book
)
20 editions published between 1975 and 2016 in English and held by 526 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
NorthHolland Mathematical Library, Volume 13: Nonarchimedean Fields and Asymptotic Expansions focuses on the connection between nonarchimedean systems and the orders of infinity and smallness that are related with the asymptotic behavior of a function. The publication first explains nonarchimedean fields and nonstandard analysis. Discussions focus on the method of mathematical logic, ultrapower construction, principles of permanence, internal functions, manysorted structures, nonarchimedean fields and groups, and fields with evaluation. The text then discusses the EulerMaclaurin expansions and the formal concept of asymptotic expansions. Topics include a generalized criterion for asymptotic expansions, asymptotic power series, Watson's Lemma, asymptotic sequences, and the EulerMaclaurin formula. The manuscript examines Popken space, including asymptotically finite functions, convergence, norm, algebraic properties of the norm, and Popken's description of the norm. The text is a dependable reference for mathematicians and researchers interested in nonarchimedean fields and asymptotic expansions
