A Galerkin procedure for aproximating the flux on the boundary for elliptic and parabolic boundary value problems by
Jim Douglas(
Book
)
6 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Elliptic and parabolic boundary value problems are first solved approximately on a rectangle and then simple auxiliary calculations are performed on the Galerkin solution to produce higher order correct approximations to the boundary flux than arise from the straightforward differentiation of the Galerkin solution. L sup 2 boundary and L sup infinity estimates are derived for the error. (Author)

A quasiprojection approximation method applied to Galerkin procedures for parabolic and hyperbolic equations by
Jim Douglas(
Book
)
6 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A technical method of approximating the Galerkin approximation to solutions of parabolic and hyperbolic equations can be based on a finite sequence of elliptic projections. The resulting function is called a quasiprojection, and it is used to study superconvergence phenomena associated with the Galerkin procedures

Reappraisal of the effect of vertical ground motions on response by
N. N Ambraseys(
Book
)
1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The report updates and extends earlier work by Ambraseys and Simpson which sought to answer the question: does the vertical component of ground motion constitute a significant proportion of the loading that has to be resisted by a building and by its foundation. It concentrates on ground motion in the nearfield where the importance of vertical accelerations is greatest. Since the previous work was completed, new nearfield strongmotion data has been recorded and published, thaerefore the equations and graphs given need to be updated using these new records

Essays in commutative harmonic analysis by
Colin C Graham(

1 edition published in 1979 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book considers various spaces and algebras made up of functions, measures, and other objectssituated always on one or another locally compact abelian group, and studied in the light of the Fourier transform. The emphasis is on the objects themselves, and on the structureindetail of the spaces and algebras. A mathematician needs to know only a little about Fourier analysis on the commutative groups, and then may go many ways within the large subject of harmonic analysisinto the beautiful theory of Lie group representations, for example. But this book represents the tendency to linger on the line, and the other abelian groups, and to keep asking questions about the structures thereupon. That tendency, pursued since the early days of analysis, has defined a field of study that can boast of some impressive results, and in which there still remain unanswered questions of compelling interest. We were influenced early in our careers by the mathematicians JeanPierre Kahane, Yitzhak Katznelson, Paul Malliavin, Yves Meyer, Joseph Taylor, and Nicholas Varopoulos. They are among the many who have made the field a productive meeting ground of probabilistic methods, number theory, diophantine approximation, and functional analysis. Since the academic year 19671968, when we were visitors in Paris and Orsay, the field has continued to see interesting developments. Let us name a few. Sam Drury and Nicholas Varopoulos solved the union problem for Helson sets, by proving a remarkable theorem (2.1.3) which has surely not seen its last use

Probabilistic number theory by
P. D. T. A Elliott(
)
1 edition published in 1979 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In 1791 Gauss made the following assertions (collected works, Vol. 10, p.ll, Teubner, Leipzig 1917): Primzahlen unter a (= 00) a la Zahlen aus zwei Factoren lla· a la (warsch.) aus 3 Factoren 1 (lla)2a  2 la et sic in info In more modern notation, let 1tk(X) denote the number of integers not exceeding x which are made up of k distinct prime factors, k = 1, 2 ... Then his assertions amount to the asymptotic estimate x (log log X)kl () 1tk X '""';"'"":::',  (x..oo). log x (k1)! The case k = 1, known as the Prime Number Theorem, was independently established by Hadamard and de la Vallee Poussin in 1896, just over a hundred years later. The general case was deduced by Landau in 1900; it needs only an integration by parts. Nevertheless, one can scarcely say that Probabilistic Number Theory began with Gauss. In 1914 the Indian original mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan arrived in England. Six years of his short life remained to him during which he wrote, amongst other things, five papers and two notes jointly with G.H. Hardy
