Variational methods for eigenvalue problems; an introduction to the methods of Rayleigh, Ritz, Weinstein, and Aronszajn by
Sydney H Gould(
Book
)
36 editions published between 1957 and 2012 in English and Russian and held by 377 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The importance of eigenvalue theory in pure and applied mathematics, and in physics and chemistry, makes it incumbent on students to understand the various methods of approximate calculation of eigenvalues. It is especially important to develop such methods in a general and theoretical manner, if only to avoid missing opportunities for particular applications. This book does just that, approaching the topic from a purely mathematical standpoint. Because variational methods are particularly well adapted to successive approximation, this book gives a simple exposition of such methods, not only of the familiar RayleighRitz method, but especially of the related methods  the Weinstein method, WeinsteinAronszajn method, and others. To make the book accessible to a broad range of students, little mathematical knowledge is presupposed beyond the elements of calculus. Where specialized knowledge is required  as it is in the discussion of direct methods in the calculus of variations and the theory of completely continuous operators in Hilbert space  the requisite material is developed in full. The first nine chapters, written in elementary style, discuss the general theory of variational methods with special reference to the vibrating plate. In the last chapter, the information gained thereby is extended, in a less elementary way, to more general cases. Exercises are provided throughout to illuminate the ideas and methods developed in the text

Book on Games of Chance by
Sydney H Gould(
)
1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Mathematics was only one area of interest for Gerolamo Cardano {u2015} the sixteenthcentury astrologer, philosopher, and physician was also a prolific author and inveterate gambler. Gambling led Cardano to the study of probability, and he was the first writer to recognize that random events are governed by mathematical laws. Published posthumously in 1663, Cardano's Liber de ludo aleae (Book on Games of Chance) is often considered the major starting point of the study of mathematical probability. The Italian scholar formulated some of the field's basic ideas more than a century before the betterknown correspondence of Pascal and Fermat. Although his book had no direct influence on other early thinkers about probability, it remains an important antecedent to later expressions of the science's tenets
