Norbert Wiener, 18941964 by
Pesi Rustom Masani(
Book
)
1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 440 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Norbert Wiener was an American mathematician and philosopher. He was a professor of mathematics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). A child prodigy, Wiener later became an early researcher in stochastic and mathematical noise processes, contributing work relevant to electronic engineering, electronic communication, and control systems. Wiener is considered the originator of cybernetics, a formalization of the notion of feedback, with implications for engineering, systems control, computer science, biology, neuroscience, philosophy, and the organization of society. Wiener thought on a grand scale and stressed the adaptation of technical concepts from pure mathematics and electrical engineering outside their technical contexts. Masani's interesting and thoughtful book analyses both Wiener's mathematical and his nonmathematical ideas in sympathetic and sensitive detail. Readers will find much to appreciate in this book, in addition to the discussion of Wiener's technical research

Elementary calculus by
Pesi Rustom Masani(
Book
)
10 editions published between 1960 and 2015 in English and held by 254 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Elementary Calculus presents a three semester introductory course on calculus. This book reveals the conceptual development of the calculus, taking into cognizance the technical and applied sides and standards of clarity and rigor that prevail in mathematics. The topics discussed include the basic laws of numbers, classification of real functions, and concept of instantaneous velocity. The limits of functions defined on intervals, derivatives of the trigonometric functions, and standard logarithmic function are also reviewed. This text likewise considers integration by substitution, len

Recent trends in multivariate prediction theory by
P Masani(
Book
)
3 editions published in 1966 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The paper surveys the present state of the theory of linear, least squares prediction of variate weakly stationary stochastic processes with discrete time. The emphasis is on logical order. Hence recent developments are described within the context of a general theory rather than chronologically. Methods for computing the predictor are briefly discussed, but purely statistical questions such as the estimation of covariances are omitted. (Author)
