Subfactors and knots by Vaughan F. R Jones( Book )

6 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 344 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is based on a set of lectures presented by the author at the NSF-CBMS Regional Conference, Applications of Operator Algebras to Knot Theory and Mathematical Physics, held at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis in June 1988. The audience consisted of low-dimensional topologists and operator algebraists, so the speaker attempted to make the material comprehensible to both groups. He provides an extensive introduction to the theory of von Neumann algebras and to knot theory and braid groups. The presentation follows the historical development of the theory of subfactors and the ensuing

Weak convergence methods for nonlinear partial differential equations by Lawrence C Evans( Book )

10 editions published between 1990 and 1995 in English and held by 334 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this book is to explain systematically and clearly many of the most important techniques set forth in recent years for using weak convergence methods to study nonlinear partial differential equations. This work represents an expanded version of a series of ten talks presented by the author at Loyola University of Chicago in the summer of 1988. The author surveys a wide collection of techniques for showing the existence of solutions to various nonlinear partial differential equations, especially when strong analytic estimates are unavailable. The overall guiding viewpoint is that

Teaching mathematics in colleges and universities : case studies for today's classroom by Solomon Friedberg( Book )

8 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 302 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Progress in mathematics frequently occurs first by studying particular examples and then by generalizing the patterns that have been observed into far-reaching theorems. Similarly, in teaching mathematics one often employs examples to motivate a general principle or to illustrate its use. This volume uses the same idea in the context of learning how to teach: By analyzing particular teaching situations, one can develop broadly applicable teaching skills useful for the professional mathematician. These teaching situations are the case studies of the title." "Each case raises a variety of pedagogical and communication issues that may be explored either individually or in a group facilitated by a faculty member." "The methodology of case studies is widely used in areas such as business and law. The consideration of the mathematics cases presented here will help readers to develop teaching skills for their own classrooms."--BOOK JACKET
