Calculus

Application-oriented introduction relates the subject as closely as possible to science. In-depth explorations of the derivative, the differentiation and integration of the powers of x, and theorems on differentiation and antidifferentiation lead to a definition of the chain rule and examinations of trigonometric functions, logarithmic and exponential functions, techniques of integration, polar coordinates, much more. Clear-cut explanations, numerous drills, illustrative examples. 1967 edition. Solution guide available upon request.

Lectures on the Mathematical Method in Analytical Economics

Lectures on the Mathematical Method in Analytical Economics

An early but still useful and frequently cited contribution to the science of mathematical economics, this volume is geared toward graduate students in the field. Prerequisites include familiarity with the basic theory of matrices and linear transformations and with elementary calculus. Author Jacob T. Schwartz begins his treatment with an exploration of the Leontief input-output model, which forms a general framework for subsequent material. An introductory treatment of price theory in the Leontief model is followed by an examination of the business-cycle theory, following ideas pioneered by Lloyd Metzler and John Maynard Keynes. In the final section, Schwartz applies the teachings of previous chapters to a critique of the general equilibrium approach devised by Léon Walras as the theory of supply and demand, and he synthesizes the notions of Walras and Keynes. 1961 edition.

Dynamical Systems

Dynamical Systems

A pioneer in the field of dynamical systems discusses one-dimensional dynamics, differential equations, random walks, iterated function systems, symbolic dynamics, and Markov chains. Supplementary materials include PowerPoint slides and MATLAB exercises. 2010 edition.

Rings and Homology

Rings and Homology

This concise text is geared toward students of mathematics who have completed a basic college course in algebra. Combining material on ring structure and homological algebra, the treatment offers advanced undergraduate and graduate students practice in the techniques of both areas. After a brief review of basic concepts, the text proceeds to an examination of ring structure, with particular attention to the structure of semisimple rings with minimum condition. Subsequent chapters develop certain elementary homological theories, introducing the functor Ext and exploring the various projective dimensions, global dimension, and duality theory. Each chapter concludes with a set of exercises.

Mathematical Brain Benders

2nd Miscellany of Puzzles

Mathematical Brain Benders

Challenge yourself with over 100 fresh paradoxes, puzzles, riddles, conundrums, word and number games for the jaded, skeptical puzzlist. Over 100 pages of comprehensive answers. Approximately 300 illustrations. "Excellent collection of unusual, offbeat, and completely original puzzles." ? Scientific American.

Algebraic Logic

Algebraic Logic

Beginning with an introduction to the concepts of algebraic logic, this concise volume features ten articles by a prominent mathematician that originally appeared in journals from 1954 to 1959. Covering monadic and polyadic algebras, these articles are essentially self-contained and accessible to a general mathematical audience, requiring no specialized knowledge of algebra or logic. Part One addresses monadic algebras, with articles on general theory, representation, and freedom. Part Two explores polyadic algebras, progressing from general theory and terms to equality. Part Three offers three items on polyadic Boolean algebras, including a survey of predicates, terms, operations, and equality. The book concludes with an additional bibliography and index.

Inversive Geometry
