An introduction to inequalities by Edwin F Beckenbach( Book )

123 editions published between 1961 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 2,490 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Most people, when they think of mathematics, think first of numbers and equations-the number (x)=that number (y). But professional mathematicians, in dealing with quantities that can be ordered according to their size, often are more interested in unequal magnitudes that are equal. This book provides an introduction to the fascinating world of inequalities beginning with a systematic discussion of the relation 'greater than' and the meaning of 'absolute values' of numbers, and ending with descriptions of some unusual geometries. In the course of the book, the reader will encounter some of the more famous inequalities in mathematics. Starting with the basic order properties of real numbers, this book carries the reader through the classical inequalities of Cauchy, Minkowsky and Hörder with many variants and applications. The concluding chapter points the way to other metrics in the plane and the interrelations between geometry (convexity) and algebra (inequalities)

Modern mathematics for the engineer by Edwin F Beckenbach( Book )

56 editions published between 1956 and 2013 in English and held by 1,082 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume and its successor were conceived to advance the level of mathematical sophistication in the engineering community. The books particularly focus on material relevant to solving the kinds of mathematical problems regularly confronted by engineers. Suitable as a text for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses as well as a reference for professionals, Volume One's three-part treatment covers mathematical models, probabilistic problems, and computational considerations. Contributions include chapters on linear and nonlinear oscillations by Solomon Lefschetz, on hyperbolic partial

29 editions published in 1978 in English and Multiple languages and held by 257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die erste internationale Tagung "Allgemeine Ungleichungen" fand vom 9. bis 15. Mai im Mathematischen Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach statt. Da Herr Bellman leider aus gesundheitlichen Gründen nicht teilnehmen konnte, hat sich glÜcklicherweise Herr Beckenbach (Los Angeles) bereiterklärt, zusammen mit den Herren Aczel (Waterloo, Onterio) und Aumann (München) die Tagung zu leiten. Als Tagungssekratär wirkte Herr Ger (Ka.towice). Die?:{ Teilnehmer kamen aus Europa, Amerika und Australien. Erfreulicherweise hat sich eine grtlßere Zahl von Teilnehmern aus Polen eingefunden; leider konnten keine Wissenschaftler aus Jugoslawien, Rumänien, der TBchechoslawakai und Ungarn kommen. Die Tagtmg wurde von Herrn Aczel eröffnet und von Herrn Aumann geschlossen. Zu der durch den Titel gegebenen allgemeinen Thematik haben die Teil nehmer in sehr verschiedene Weise beigetragen. Trotzdem bildeten sich einige Schwerpunkte heraus: Funktionalungleichungen, inbesondere iterativen ~s, konvexe und verallgemejnert konvexe Funktionen, Differentialungleichungen, Ungleichungen der Funktionentheorie, Funktionalanalysis und Geometrie. Ferner wurden Anwendungen von Ungleichungen auf Differentialgleichungen, Physik, Warscheinlichkeits-, Informations- und Wirtschaftstheorie gebracht. Die als besondere Tagungspunkte augesetzten "Bemerkungen und Probleme" haben sich als äußerst fruchtbar erwiesen, ja sogar in einem Fall zur vollständigen LÖsung eines aufgeworfenen Problems geführt. Die Tagung hat nicht nur gezeigt, daß das Netz von Ungleichungen, das die. gesamte Analysis durchzieht, verdient in eigenständiger Weise und im Sinne allgemeiner Methoden behandelt zu werden, sondern auch bestätigt, wie viel schneller und wirksamer der Ideenaustausch ist, der durch die Vorträge und durch den persönlichen Kontakt der Wissenschaftler untereinander zustande kommt, als die unpersönliche, nur literarische Information
