Trends in contemporary mathematics by Vincenzo Ancona( )

10 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 339 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book covers a wide spectrum of hot topics and current trends in mathematics, including noncommutative algebra via deformation theory, optimal transportation, nonlinear potential theory, kinetic theory and gas dynamics, geometric numerical integration, finite simple groups of small essential dimension, optimal control problems, extended Dynkin diagrams, spin glasses, aspherical closed manifolds, Boltzmann systems, birational geometry of projective varieties and directed graphs, nonlinear diffusion, geometric constructions of extremal metrics on complex manifolds, and Pell's equation in polynomials. The book comprises a selection of contributions by leading international mathematicians who were speakers at the "INdAM Day", an initiative dating back to 2004 at which the most recent developments in contemporary mathematics are presented
The ascent of Mary Somerville in 19th century society by E Strickland( )

13 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in English and German and held by 312 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This biography traces the life and work of Mary Fairfax Somerville, whose extraordinary mathematical talent only came to light through fortuitous circumstances. Barely taught to read and write as a child, all the science she learned and mastered was self taught. In this delightful narrative the author takes up the challenge of discovering how Somerville came to be one of the most outstanding British women scientists and, furthermore, a popular writer. Particular attention is paid to the gender aspects of Somerville's success in what was, to put it mildly, a predominantly male domain
I numeri nel cuore by C Ciliberto( )

14 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in Italian and English and held by 303 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Questo libro è una galleria estremamente variegata di ironiche riflessioni sul mondo accademico, di lievi aneddoti, di pacate provocazioni, di appunti di viaggi, di ritratti di matematici famosi, sospesi tra scherzo e serietà, tra sogno e realtà. Aprono la raccolta due squisite fantasie di Arthur Porges e Arthur Koestler, seguite da racconti scritti da matematici di professione, che hanno per hobby la letteratura, ispirati a personaggi e fatti, a emozioni e fantasie legati al mondo della matematica. Docenti, ricercatori e studenti di matematica potranno riconoscere, con gusto e partecipazione, situazioni loro familiari. Ma anche chi matematico non è potrà godersi questa piacevole lettura, trovando magari stimoli a guardare più da vicino questo universo popolato da numeri, forme, idee e assaporando le gioie, i dolori, l'umorismo, l'armonia e perfino la magia nascosta in una disciplina che, seppur complicata, è ricca di calore e sentimento
Mathematical models and methods for planet earth by A Celletti( )

7 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 287 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 2013 several scientific activities have been devoted to mathematical researches for the study of planet Earth. The current volume presents a selection of the highly topical issues presented at the workshop 'Mathematical Models and Methods for Planet Earth', held in Roma (Italy), in May 2013. The fields of interest span from impacts of dangerous asteroids to the safeguard from space debris, from climatic changes to monitoring geological events, from the study of tumor growth to sociological problems. In all these fields the mathematical studies play a relevant role as a tool for the analysis of specific topics and as an ingredient of multidisciplinary problems. To investigate these problems we will see many different mathematical tools at work: just to mention some, stochastic processes, PDE, normal forms, chaos theory."--Cover

Topics in computational algebra by Giulia Maria Piacentini Cattaneo( Book )

13 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The main purpose of these lectures is first to briefly survey the fundamental con nection between the representation theory of the symmetric group Sn and the theory of symmetric functions and second to show how combinatorial methods that arise naturally in the theory of symmetric functions lead to efficient algorithms to express various prod ucts of representations of Sn in terms of sums of irreducible representations. That is, there is a basic isometry which maps the center of the group algebra of Sn, Z(Sn), to the space of homogeneous symmetric functions of degree n, An. This basic isometry is known as the Frobenius map, F. The Frobenius map allows us to reduce calculations involving characters of the symmetric group to calculations involving Schur functions. Now there is a very rich and beautiful theory of the combinatorics of symmetric functions that has been developed in recent years. The combinatorics of symmetric functions, then leads to a number of very efficient algorithms for expanding various products of Schur functions into a sum of Schur functions. Such expansions of products of Schur functions correspond via the Frobenius map to decomposing various products of irreducible representations of Sn into their irreducible components. In addition, the Schur functions are also the characters of the irreducible polynomial representations of the general linear group over the complex numbers GLn(C)
