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 932 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the most prominent mathematicians of the twentieth century, Abraham Robinson discovered and developed non-standard 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 conflict-ridden 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 fifty-five."--Jacket
Complete theories by Abraham Robinson( Book )

36 editions published between 1956 and 2000 in 3 languages and held by 688 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is chiefly concerned with completeness problems for algebraic structures. The two most interesting algebraic notions for which completeness has been established in the past are, the concept of an algebraically closed field of given characteristic, and the concept of a real-closed field

Nonarchimedean fields and asymptotic expansions by A. H Lightstone( Book )

21 editions published between 1975 and 2016 in English and held by 543 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book provides a comprehensive introduction to modern global variational theory on fibred spaces. It is based on differentiation and integration theory of differential forms on smooth manifolds, and on the concepts of global analysis and geometry such as jet prolongations of manifolds, mappings, and Lie groups. The book will be invaluable for researchers and PhD students in differential geometry, global analysis, differential equations on manifolds, and mathematical physics, and for the readers who wish to undertake further rigorous study in this broad interdisciplinary field
