#### Texts in Applied Mathematics 36: A Course in Robust Control Theory: A Convex Approach (Hardback)

$68.29

"This goal of this book is to give a graduate-level course on robust control theory that emphasizes ... new developments, but at the same time conveys the main principles and ubiquitous tools at the heart of the subject. Its pedagogical objectives are to introduce a coherent and unified framework for studying robust control theory, to provide students with the control-theoretic background required to read and contributed to the research literature, and the present the main ideas and demonstrations of the major results of robust control theory." — From the back cover

#### Introduction to Applied Mathematics (Hardback)

$51.99

"It is a pleasure to teach a subject when it is moving forward, and this one is—but the book has to share in that spirit and help to establish it. ... This book is a text for applied mathematics and advanced calculus and engineering mathematics. It aims to explain what is essential, as far as possible within one book and one year. It also reaches beyond the usual courses, to introduce more recent ideas..." — Gilbert Strang, Author, in the Preface

#### Direct Methods for Sparse Linear Systems (Softcover)

$53.95

"Overall, the book is magnificent. It fills a long-felt need for an accessible textbook on modern sparse direct methods. Its choice of scope is excellent." — John Gilbert, Professor, Department of Computer Science, University of California, Santa Barbara (as quoted on the back cover)

#### Perspectives on Projective Geometry: A Guided Tour Through Real and Complex Geometry (Hardback)

$58.59

"Projective geometry is one of the most fundamental and at the same time most beautiful branches of geometry. It can be considered the common foundation of many other geometric disciplines like Euclidean geometry, hyperbolic and elliptic geometry or even relativistic space-time geometry. This book offers a comprehensive introduction to this fascinating field and its applications." — 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

#### Introduction to Symmetry Analysis (Softcover with CD-ROM)

$74.79

"Symmetry analysis based on Lie group theory is the most important method for solving nonlinear problems aside from numerical computation. ... The text emphasizes applications, and numerous worked examples are used to illustrate basic concepts." — From the back cover

#### Stochastic Modelling and Applied Probability 51: Applied Probability and Queues, Second Edition (Hardback)

$91.29

"This book serves as an introduction to queueing theory and provides a thorough treatment of tools such as Markov processes, renewal theory, random walks, Lévy processes, matrix-analytic methods, and chagne of measure. ..." — From the back cover

#### London Mathematical Society Student Texts 23: Complex Algebraic Curves (Softcover)

$45.89

"This book grew from a lecture course given by Dr Kirwan at Oxford University and will be an excellent companion for final year undergraduates and graduates who are studying complex algebraic curves." — From the back cover

#### Mixed Boundary Value Problems (Hardback)

$47.86

This book contains an up-to-date treatment of the subject, providing ample examples and MATLAB® problems.

#### Poincaré and the Three Body Problem (Softcover)

$32.29

"The idea of chaos figures prominently in mathematics today. It arose in the work of one of the greatest mathematicians of the late 19th century, Henri Poincaré, on a problem in celestial mechanics: the three body problem. This ancient problem—to describe the paths of three bodies in mutual gravitational interaction—is one which is simple to pose buy impossible to solve precisely." — From the back cover

#### An Introduction to the Theory of Graph Spectra (Softcover)

$34.49

"This introductory text explores the theory of graph spectra: a topic with applications across a wide range of subjects, including computer science, quantum chemistry and electrical engineering." — From the back cover

#### Nonlinear Systems, Second Edition (Hardback)

$79.95

"This text is intended for a first-year graduate-level course on nonlinear systems. It may also be used for self-study or reference by engineers and applied mathematicians." — From the Preface (page v)

#### Stochastic Optimal Control: The Discrete-Time Case (Softcover)

$37.95

"This monograph is the outgrowth of research carried out at the University of Illinois over a three-year period beginning in the latter half of 1974. The objective of the monograph is to provide a unifying and mathematically rigorous theory for a broad class of dynamic programming and discrete-time stochastic optimal control problems. It is divided into two parts, which can be read independently." — From the Preface (page xi)

#### Applied Mathematical Sciences 157: Computational Homology (Hardback)

$66.50

"This book is complemented by a Web site containing software programs and projects that help to further illustrate the material described within." — From the back cover

$39.89

"In the last sixty years, the use of the notion of category has led to a remarkable unification and simplification of mathematics.

*Conceptual Mathematics*introduces this tool for the learning, development, and use of mathematics, to beginning students and also to practising mathematical scientists." — From the back cover#### Encyclopedia of Mathematics and Its Applications 39: Combinatorial Matrix Theory (Hardback)

$93.89

"This is the first book length exposition of basic results of combinatorial matrix theory, that is, the use of combinatorics and graph theory in matrix theory (and vice versa) and the study of intrinsic properties of matrices viewed as arrays of numbers rather than as algebraic objects." — From the Dust Jacket

#### Frontiers in Applied Mathematics: Computational Frameworks for the Fast Fourier Transform (Softcover)

$36.29

"The fast Fourier transform (FFT) is one of the truly great computational developments of [the 20th] century. It has changed the face of science and engineering so much so that it is not an exaggeration to say that
