#### Springer Series in Computational Mathematics 36: Geršgorin and His Circles (Hardback)

$74.29

"This book studies the original results, and their extension, of the Russian mathematician, S.A. Geršgorin, who wrote a seminal paper in 1931, on how to easily obtain estimates of all n eigenvalues (characteristic values) of any given n-by-n complex matrix." — From the back cover

#### Iterative Methods for Sparse Linear Systems, Second Edition (Softcover)

$73.95

"This book can be used to teach graduate-level courses on iterative methods for linear systems. Engineers and mathematicians will find its contents easily accessible, and practitioners and educators will value it as a helpful resource. The preface includes syllabi that can be used for either a semester- or quarter-length course in both mathematics and computer science." — From the back cover

#### Undergraduate Texts in Mathematics: Projective Geometry (Softcover)

$68.29

"The prerequisites for reading this book are fairly limited: a good command of linear algebra, some knowledge of quadratic forms and field extensions, and a few notions about the irreducibility of polynomials and factorization in rings of polynomials." — Pierre Samuel, Author, in the Introduction

#### Differential Geometry of Curves and Surfaces (Hardback)

$67.59

"Although there is enough material in the book for a full-year course (or a topics course), we tried to make the book suitable for a first course on differential geometry for students with some background in linear algebra and advanced calculus." — From "Some Remarks on Using This Book" (page vii)

#### An Introduction to Random Matrices (Hardback)

$53.95

"The theory of random matrices plays an important role in many areas of pure mathematics and employs a variety of sophisticated mathematical tools (analytical, probabilistic, and combinatorial). This diverse array of tools, while attesting to the vitality of the field, presents several formidable obstacles to the newcomer, and even to the expert probabilist. This rigorous introduction to the basic theory is sufficiently self-contained to be accessible to graduate students in mathematics or related sciences who have mastered probability theory at the graduate level, but who have not necessarily been exposed to advanced notions of functional analysis, algebra, or geometry." — From the back cover

#### Classical Mechanics: Theory and Mathematical Modeling (Hardcover)

$49.95

"Classical mechanics is a chief example of the scientific method organizing a 'complex' collection of information into theoretically rigorous, unifying principles; in this sense, mechanics represents one of the highest forms of mathematical modeling. This textbook covers standard topics of a mechanics course, namely, the mechanics of rigid bodies, Lagrangian and Hamiltonian formalism, stability and small oscillations, an introduction to celestial mechanics, and Hamilton-Jacobi theory, but at the same time features unique examples—such as the spinning top including friction and gyroscopic compass—seldom appearing in this context. In addition, variational principles like Lagrangian and Hamiltonian dynamics are treated in great detail." — From the back cover

#### An Invitation to Modern Number Theory (Hardback)

$47.49

"In a manner accessible to beginning undergraduates,

*An Invitation to Modern Number Theory*introduces many of the central problems, conjectures, results, and techniques of the field, such as the Riemann Hypothesis, Roth's Theorem, the Circle Method, and Random Matrix Theory." — From the back cover#### Interior Point Methods for Linear Optimization, Second Edition (Hardback)

$46.59

"Linear Optimization (LO) is one of the most widely applied and taught techniques in mathematics, with applications in many areas of science, commerce and industry. The dramatically increased interest in the subject is due mainly to advances in computer technology and the development of Interior Point Methods (IPMs) for LO." — From the back cover

#### Iterative Methods for Solving Linear Systems (Softcover)

$46.59

"For a course in matrix iterations, this is just the right book. It is wide ranging, careful about details, and appealingly written—a major addition to the literature in this important area." — Nick Trefethen, Oxford University Computing Laboratory, England

#### Undergraduate Texts in Mathematics: Linearity, Symmetry, and Prediction in the Hydrogen Atom (Hardback)

$41.79

"This user-friendly exposition, driven by numerous examples and exercises, requires a solid background in calculus and familiarity with either linear algebra or advanced quantum mechanics. ... [It] will benefit students in mathematics, physics and chemistry, as well as a literate general readership." — From the back cover

#### Linear Algebra and Its Applications, Second Edition (Hardback)

$41.49

"The outlook of the second edition is the same as that of the original: to present linear algebra as the theory and practice of linear equations and linear mappings. Where it aids understandings and calculations, I don't hesitate to describe vectors as arrays of numbers and describe mappings as matrices."—by the author, from the Preface

#### Student Mathematical Library, Volume 46: Lectures on Surfaces: (Almost) Everything You Wanted to Know about Them (Softcover)

$39.59

"The assumed background is the standard calculus sequence, some linear algebra, and rudiments of ODE and real analysis. All notions are introduced and discussed, and virtually all results proved, based on this background." — From the back cover

#### Clifford Algebras with Numeric and Symbolic Computations (Hardback)

$37.99

"This new book is an excellent resource for those mathematicians, physicists, engineers, and scientific computing researchers who currently use Clifford algebra methods in their investigations. It is also appealing to those who would like to quickly become familiar with the theory and computational practice in some of the most recent and fascinating applications of Clifford algebras." — From the back cover

"This carefully written book is an introduction to the beautiful ideas and results of differential geometry." — From the back cover

#### Undergraduate Texts in Mathematics: Groups and Symmetry (Hardback)

$35.15

"As prerequisites I assume a first course in linear algebra (including matrix multiplication and the representation of linear maps between Euclidean spaces by matrices, though not the abstract theory of vector spaces) plus familiarity with the basic properties of the real and complex numbers. It would be a pity to teach group theory without matrix groups available as a rich source of examples, especially since matrices are so heavily used in application." — Mark Anthony Armstrong, Author, in the Preface
