Claudi Alsina, Roger B. Nelsen.Description: "Theorems and their proofs lie at the heart of mathematics. In speaking of the purely aesthetic qualities of theorems and proofs, G. H. Hardy wrote that in beautiful proofs 'there is a very high degree of unexpectedness, combined with inevitability and economy'. Charming Proofs present a collection of remarkable proofs in elementary mathematics that are exceptionally elegant, full of ingenuity, and succinct. By means of a surprising argument or a powerful visual representation, the proofs in this collection will invite readers to enjoy the beauty of mathematics, to share their discoveries with others, and to become involved in the process of creating new proofs. Charming Proofs is organized as follows. Following a short introduction about proofs and the process of creating proofs, the authors present, in twelve chapters, a wide and varied selection of proofs they consider charming, Topics include the integers, selected real numbers, points in the plane, triangles, squares, and other polygons, curves, inequalities, plane tilings, origami, colorful proofs, three-dimensional geometry, etc. At the end of each chapter are some challenges that will draw the reader into the process of creating charming proofs. There are over 130 such challenges. Charming Proofs concludes with solutions to all of the challenges, references, and a complete index. As in the authors' previous books with the MAA (Math Made Visual and When Less Is More), secondary school and college and university teachers may wish to use some of the charming proofs in their classrooms to introduce their students to mathematical elegance. Some may wish to use the book as a supplement in an introductory course on proofs, mathematical reasoning, or problem solving."--Publisher's description.http://pilot.passhe.edu:8031/cgi-bin/Pwebrecon.cgi?bbid=507161http://pilot.passhe.edu:8031/cgi-bin/Pwebrecon.cgi?bbid=458801Classical and modern numerical analysis : . theory, methods and practice / .

H. S. Wall.Description: "Professor H. S. Wall wrote Creative Mathematics with the intention of leading students to develop their mathematical abilities, to help them learn the art of mathematics, and to teach them to create mathematical ideas. Creative Mathematics, according to Wall, "is not a compendium of mathematical facts and inventions to be read over as a connoisseur of art looks over paintings. It is, instead, a sketchbook in which readers try their hands at mathematical discovery." The book is self contained, and assumes little formal mathematical background on the part of the reader. Wall is earnest about developing mathematical creativity and independence in students. Wall developed Creative Mathematics over a period of many years of working with students at the University of Texas -Austin. In less than two hundred pages, he takes the reader on a stimulating tour starting with numbers, and then moving on to simple graphs, the integral, simple surfaces, successive approximations, linear spaces of simple graphs, and concluding with mechanical systems. The student who has worked through Creative Mathematics will come away with heightened mathematical maturity."--Publisher's description.http://pilot.passhe.edu:8031/cgi-bin/Pwebrecon.cgi?bbid=453731http://pilot.passhe.edu:8031/cgi-bin/Pwebrecon.cgi?bbid=474504Data mining in time series databases. / . . editors, Mark Last, Abraham Kandel, Horst Bunke.Description: http://pilot.passhe.edu:8031/cgi-bin/Pwebrecon.cgi?bbid=474504http://pilot.passhe.edu:8031/cgi-bin/Pwebrecon.cgi?bbid=453557Designing software-intensive systems : . methods and principles / .

Steven G. Krantz.Description: "An Episodic History of Mathematics delivers a series of snapshots of mathematics and mathematicians from ancient times to the twentieth century. Giving readers a sense of mathematical culture and history, the book also acquaints readers with the nature and techniques of mathematics via exercises. It introduces the genesis of key mathematical concepts. For example, while Krantz does not get into the intricate mathematical details of Andrew Wiles's proof of Fermat's Last Theorem, he does describe some of the streams of thought that posed the problem and led to its solution. The focus in this text, moreover, is on doing - getting involved with the mathematics and solving problems. Every chapter ends with a detailed problem set that will provide students with avenues for exploration and entry into the subject. It recounts the history of mathematics; offers broad coverage of the various schools of mathematical thought to give readers a wider understanding of mathematics; and includes exercises to help readers engage with the text and gain a deeper understanding of the material."--Publisher's description.http://pilot.passhe.edu:8031/cgi-bin/Pwebrecon.cgi?bbid=478293http://pilot.passhe.edu:8031/cgi-bin/Pwebrecon.cgi?bbid=542143Euler's gem : . the polyhedron formula and the birth of topology / .

Matula.Description: "Fundamental arithmetic operations support virtually all of the engineering, scientific, and financial computations required for practical applications, from cryptography, to financial planning, to rocket science. This comprehensive reference provides researchers with the thorough understanding of number representations that is a necessary foundation for designing efficient arithmetic algorithms. Using the elementary foundations of radix number systems as a basis for arithmetic, the authors develop and compare alternative algorithms for the fundamental operations of addition, multiplication, division, and square root with precisely defined roundings. Various finite precision number systems are investigated, with the focus on comparative analysis of practically efficient algorithms for closed arithmetic operations over these systems. Each chapter begins with an introduction to its contents and ends with bibliographic notes and an extensive bibliography. The book may also be used for graduate teaching: problems and exercises are scattered throughout the text and a solutions manual is available for instructors"--Provided by publisher.http://pilot.passhe.edu:8031/cgi-bin/Pwebrecon.cgi?bbid=478290http://pilot.passhe.edu:8031/cgi-bin/Pwebrecon.cgi?bbid=480108Flatland / . . by Edwin A.

Pierre Ramond.Description: "Group theory has long been an important computational tool for physicists, but with the advent of the Standard Model it has become a powerful conceptual tool as well. This book introduces physicists to many of the fascinating mathematical aspects of group theory, and mathematicians to its physics applications." "Designed for advanced undergraduate and graduate students, this book gives a comprehensive overview of the main aspects of both finite and continuous group theory, with an emphasis on applications to fundamental physics. Finite groups are extensively discussed, highlighting their irreducible representations and invariants. Lie algebras, and to a lesser extent Kac-Moody algebras, are treated in detail, including Dynkin diagrams. Special emphasis is given to their representations and embeddings. The group theory underlying the Standard Model is discussed, along with its importance in model building. Applications of group theory to the classification of elementary particles are treated in detail."--BOOK JACKET.http://pilot.passhe.edu:8031/cgi-bin/Pwebrecon.cgi?bbid=478287http://pilot.passhe.edu:8031/cgi-bin/Pwebrecon.cgi?bbid=474501Guide to LATEX / . .

Benjamin Wardhaugh.Description: "Writings by early mathematicians feature language and notations that are quite different from what we're familiar with today. Sourcebooks on the history of mathematics provide some guidance, but what has been lacking is a guide tailored to the needs of readers approaching these writings for the first time. How to Read Historical Mathematics fills this gap by introducing readers to the analytical questions historians ask when deciphering historical texts." "Sampling actual writings from the history of mathematics, Benjamin Wardhaugh reveals the questions that will unlock the meaning and significance of a given text - Who wrote it, why, and for whom? What was its author's intended meaning? How did it reach its present form? Is it original or a translation? Why is it important today? Wardhaugh teaches readers to think about what the original text might have looked like, to consider where and when it was written, and to formulate questions of their own. Readers pick up new skills with each chapter, and gain the confidence and analytical sophistication needed to tackle virtually any text in the history of mathematics."--BOOK JACKET.http://pilot.passhe.edu:8031/cgi-bin/Pwebrecon.cgi?bbid=488087http://pilot.passhe.edu:8031/cgi-bin/Pwebrecon.cgi?bbid=454171Information and emotion : . the emergent affective paradigm in information behavior research and theory / . edited by Diane Nahl and Dania Bilal.Description: http://pilot.passhe.edu:8031/cgi-bin/Pwebrecon.cgi?bbid=454171http://pilot.passhe.edu:8031/cgi-bin/Pwebrecon.cgi?bbid=498904Insight through computing : . a MATLAB introduction to computational science and engineering / .

Ralph P. Boas.Description: "This book, whose first edition was written by Ralph P. Boas and published by Random House in 1987, reveals both the power of complex analysis as a tool for applications and the intrinsic beauty of the subject as a fundamental part of pure mathematics. This revised edition by the author's son, Harold P. Boas, himself an award-winning mathematical expositor, is an ideal choice for a first course in complex analysis, as a classroom text, and for independent study. Distilling the subject into a lucid, engaging, rigorous account of the subject, the authors go beyond the standard material of power series, Cauchy's theorem, residues, conformal mapping, and harmonic functions. Included are accessible discussions of less well-known but intriguing topics ranging from Landau's notation and overconvergent series to the Phragmen-Lindelof theorems. Nearly 70 exercises, with detailed solutions, serve as models for students, and supplementary exercises provide even more material for the classroom."--Publisher's description.http://pilot.passhe.edu:8031/cgi-bin/Pwebrecon.cgi?bbid=478281http://pilot.passhe.edu:8031/cgi-bin/Pwebrecon.cgi?bbid=508346The joy of x : . a guided tour of math, from one to infinity / . Steven Strogatz.Description: "In 2010, award-winning professor Steven Strogatz wrote a series for the New York Times online called "The Elements of Math." It was hugely popular: Each piece climbed the most emailed list and elicited hundreds of comments. Readers begged for more, and Strogatz has now delivered. In this fun, fast-paced book, he offers us all a second chance at math. Each short chapter of The Joy of X provides an "Aha!" moment, starting with why numbers are helpful, and moving on to such topics as shapes, calculus, fat tails, and infinity. Strogatz explains the ideas of math gently and clearly, with wit, insight, and brilliant illustrations. Assuming no knowledge, only curiosity, he shows how math connects to literature, philosophy, law, medicine, art, business, even pop culture and current events. For example, did O.J. do it? How should you flip your mattress to get the maximum wear out of it? How does Google search the Internet? How many people should you date before settling down? Strogatz is the math teacher you wish you'd had, and The Joy of X is the book you'll want to give to all your smart and curious friends."--http://pilot.passhe.edu:8031/cgi-bin/Pwebrecon.cgi?bbid=508346http://pilot.passhe.edu:8031/cgi-bin/Pwebrecon.cgi?bbid=474498Kernels for structured data / . .

Michael Kerrisk.Description: The Linux Programming Interface describes the Linux API (application programming interface)the system calls, library functions, and other low-level interfaces that are used, directly or indirectly, by every program that runs on Linux. Programs that explicitly use these interfaces are commonly called system programs, and include applications such as shells, editors, windowing systems, terminal emulators, file managers, compilers, database management systems, virtual machines, network servers, and much of the other software that is employed on a daily basis on Linux systems. Extensively indexed and heavily cross-referenced, The Linux Programming Interface is both an introductory guide for readers new to the topic of system programming, and a comprehensive reference for experienced system programmers. Although this book goes into detail on a wealth of Linux-specific features, it gives careful attention to contemporary Unix programming standards and to portability issues. - Publisher.http://pilot.passhe.edu:8031/cgi-bin/Pwebrecon.cgi?bbid=552109http://pilot.passhe.edu:8031/cgi-bin/Pwebrecon.cgi?bbid=478279The man who invented the computer : . the biography of John Atanasoff, digital pioneer / . Jane Smiley.Description: One night in the late 1930s, in a bar on the Illinois-Iowa border, John Vincent Atanasoff, a professor of physics at Iowa State University, after a frustrating day performing tedious mathematical calculations in his lab, hit on the idea that the binary number system and electronic switches, combined with an array of capacitors on a moving drum to serve as memory, could yield a computing machine that would make his life easier. Then he went back and built the machine. It worked, but he never patented the device, and the developers of the far-better-known ENIAC almost certainly stole critical ideas from him. But in 1973 a court declared that the patent on that Sperry Rand device was invalid, opening the gates to the computer revolution. Biographer Jane Smiley makes the race to develop digital computing as gripping as a real-life techno-thriller.--From publisher description.http://pilot.passhe.edu:8031/cgi-bin/Pwebrecon.cgi?bbid=478279http://pilot.passhe.edu:8031/cgi-bin/Pwebrecon.cgi?bbid=474497Markov chains and mixing times / . .

Peter Hilton, Jean Pedersen ; with illustrations by Sylvie Donmoyer.Description: "This easy-to-read book demonstrates how a simple geometric idea reveals fascinating connections and results in number theory, the mathematics of polyhedra, combinatorial geometry, and group theory. Using a systematic paper-folding procedure it is possible to construct a regular polygon with any number of sides. This remarkable algorithm has led to interesting proofs of certain results in number theory, has been used to answer combinatorial questions involving partitions of space, and has enabled the authors to obtain the formula for the volume of a regular tetrahedron in around three steps, using nothing more complicated than basic arithmetic and the most elementary plane geometry. All of these ideas, and more, reveal the beauty of mathematics and the interconnectedness of its various branches. Detailed instructions, including clear illustrations, enable the reader to gain hands-on experience constructing these models and to discover for themselves the patterns and relationships they unearth"--http://pilot.passhe.edu:8031/cgi-bin/Pwebrecon.cgi?bbid=498900http://pilot.passhe.edu:8031/cgi-bin/Pwebrecon.cgi?bbid=478275Mathematics 1001 : . absolutely everything that matters in mathematics in 1001 bite-sized explanations / .

Michael O'Leary.Description: "In an effort to fully appreciate the logic and structure of geometric proofs, Revolutions of Geometry places proofs into the context of geometry's history, helping readers to understand that proof writing is crucial to the job of a mathematician. Written for students and educators of mathematics alike, the book guides readers through the rich history and influential works, from ancient times to the present, behind the development of geometry. As a result, readers are successfully equipped with the necessary logic to develop a full understanding of geometric theorems." "Following a presentation of the geometry of ancient Egypt, Babylon, and China, the author addresses mathematical philosophy and logic within the context of works by Thales, Plato, and Aristotle. Next, the mathematics of the classical Greeks is discussed, incorporating the teachings of Pythagoras and his followers along with an overview of lower-level geometry using Euclid's Elements. Subsequent chapters explore the work of Archimedes, Viete's revolutionary contributions to algebra, Descartes' merging of algebra and geometry to solve the Pappus problem, and Desargues' development of projective geometry. The author also supplies an excursion into non-Euclidean geometry, including the three hypotheses of Saccheri and Lambert and the near simultaneous discoveries of Lobachevski and Bolyai. Finally, modern geometry is addressed within the study of manifolds and elliptic geometry inspired by Riemann's work, Poncelet's return to projective geometry, and Klein's use of group theory to characterize different geometries." "The book promotes the belief that in order to learn how to write proofs, one needs to read finished proofs, studying both their logic and grammar. Each chapter features a concise introduction to the presented topic, and chapter sections conclude with exercises that are designed to reinforce the material and provide readers with ample practice in writing proofs. In addition, the overall presentation of topics in the book is in chronological order, helping readers appreciate the relevance of geometry within the historical development of mathematics." "Well organized and clearly written, Revolutions of Geometry is a valuable book for courses on modern geometry and the history of mathematics at the upper-undergraduate level. It is also a valuable reference for educators in the field of mathematics."--BOOK JACKET.http://pilot.passhe.edu:8031/cgi-bin/Pwebrecon.cgi?bbid=478267http://pilot.passhe.edu:8031/cgi-bin/Pwebrecon.cgi?bbid=542137Roads to infinity : . the mathematics of truth and proof / .

Finn Brunton.Description: The vast majority of all email sent every day is spam, a variety of idiosyncratically spelled requests to provide account information, invitations to spend money on dubious products, and pleas to send cash overseas. Most of it is caught by filters before ever reaching an in-box. Where does it come from? As Finn Brunton explains in Spam, it is produced and shaped by many different populations around the world: programmers, con artists, bots and their botmasters, pharmaceutical merchants, marketers, identity thieves, crooked bankers and their victims, cops, lawyers, network security professionals, vigilantes, and hackers. Every time we go online, we participate in the system of spam, with choices, refusals, and purchases the consequences of which we may not understand. This is a book about what spam is, how it works, and what it means. Brunton provides a cultural history that stretches from pranks on early computer networks to the construction of a global criminal infrastructure. The history of spam, Brunton shows us, is a shadow history of the Internet itself, with spam emerging as the mirror image of the online communities it targets. Brunton traces spam through three epochs: the 1970s to 1995, and the early, noncommercial computer networks that became the Internet; 1995 to 2003, with the dot-com boom, the rise of spam's entrepreneurs, and the first efforts at regulating spam; and 2003 to the present, with the war of algorithms -- spam versus anti-spam. Spam shows us how technologies, from email to search engines, are transformed by unintended consequences and adaptations, and how online communities develop and invent governance for themselves.http://pilot.passhe.edu:8031/cgi-bin/Pwebrecon.cgi?bbid=544330http://pilot.passhe.edu:8031/cgi-bin/Pwebrecon.cgi?bbid=498902Sphere packing, Lewis Carroll, and reversi : .

Sanjoy Mahajan ; foreword by Carver A. Mead.Description: "In Street-Fighting Mathematics, Sanjoy Mahajan builds, sharpens, and demonstrates tools for educated guessing and down-and-dirty, opportunistic problem solving across diverse fields of knowledge - from mathematics to management. Mahajan describes six tools: dimensional analysis, easy cases, lumping, picture proofs, successive approximation, and reasoning by analogy. Illustrating each tool with numerous examples, he carefully separates the tool - the general principle - from the particular application so that the reader can most easily grasp the tool itself to use on problems of particular interest." "Street-Fighting Mathematics grew out of a short course taught by the author at MIT for students ranging from first-year undergraduates to graduate students ready for careers in physics, mathematics, management, electrical engineering, computer science, and biology. They benefited from an approach that avoided rigor and taught them how to use mathematics to solve real problems."--BOOK JACKET.http://pilot.passhe.edu:8031/cgi-bin/Pwebrecon.cgi?bbid=478265http://pilot.passhe.edu:8031/cgi-bin/Pwebrecon.cgi?bbid=478268Student solutions manual to accompany Revolutions of geometry / . . by Michael O'Leary.Description: http://pilot.passhe.edu:8031/cgi-bin/Pwebrecon.cgi?bbid=478268http://pilot.passhe.edu:8031/cgi-bin/Pwebrecon.cgi?bbid=456619Superfractals / . .

Richard Stiennon.Description: Military and intelligence leaders agree that the next major war is not likely to be fought on the battleground but in cyber space. The author argues the era of cyber warfare has already begun. Recent cyber attacks on United States government departments and the Pentagon corroborate this claim. China has compromised email servers at the German Chancellery, Whitehall, and the Pentagon. In August 2008, Russia launched a cyber attack against Georgia that was commensurate with their invasion of South Ossetia. This was the first time that modern cyber attacks were used in conjunction with a physical attack. Every day, thousands of attempts are made to hack into America's critical infrastructure. These attacks, if successful, could have devastating consequences. In this book the author introduces cyberwar, outlines an effective defense against cyber threats, and explains how to prepare for future attacks. He also examines the cyber threats and where they come from, explains how defensive technologies can be used to counter cyber attacks and to secure American infrastructure, considers the major recent cyber attacks that have taken place around the world, discusses the implications of such attacks, and offers solutions to the vulnerabilities that made these attacks possible. The book begins with Shawn Carpenter and his discovery that China had hacked into his work place, Sandia Labs. It follows the rise of cyber espionage on the part of the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) as increasingly sophisticated and overt attacks are carried out against government and military networks around the world. It moves from cyber espionage to cyberwar itself, revealing the rise of distributed denial of service (DDoS) as a means of attacking servers, websites, and countries. It provides a historical perspective on technology and warfare is provided, drawing on lessons learned from Sun Tsu to Lawrence of Arabia to Winston Churchill, and finishes by considering how major democracies are preparing for cyberwar and predicts ways that a new era of cyber conflict is going to impact the Internet, privacy, and the way the world works. This text is a stimulating and informative look at one of the gravest threats to Homeland Security today, offering new insights to technologists on the front lines, helping policy makers understand the challenges they face, and providing guidance for every organization to help reduce exposure to cyber threats.http://pilot.passhe.edu:8031/cgi-bin/Pwebrecon.cgi?bbid=476543http://pilot.passhe.edu:8031/cgi-bin/Pwebrecon.cgi?bbid=405099Teaching and learning middle grades mathematics / . .

But unlike the efforts to recruit Rosie the Riveter to the factory, this clandestine search targeted female mathematicians who would become human 'computers' for the U.S. Army. From the bombing of Axis Europe to the assaults on Japanese strongholds, women worked around-the-clock six days a week, creating ballistics tables that proved crucial to Allied success. Rosie made the weapons, but the female computers made them accurate. When the first electronic computer (ENIAC) was developed to aid the Army's calculation efforts, six of these women were tapped to become its first programmers."--Container.http://pilot.passhe.edu:8031/cgi-bin/Pwebrecon.cgi?bbid=508371http://pilot.passhe.edu:8031/cgi-bin/Pwebrecon.cgi?bbid=544329Understanding cryptography : . a textbook for students and practitioners / .

Jeanny Hâerault.Description: At the fascinating frontiers of neurobiology, mathematics and psychophysics, this book addresses the problem of human and computer vision on the basis of cognitive modeling. After recalling the physics of light and its transformation through media and optics, Hâerault presents the principles of the primate's visual system in terms of anatomy and functionality. Then, the neuronal circuitry of the retina is analyzed in terms of spatio-temporal filtering. This basic model is extended to the concept of neuromorphic circuits for motion processing and to the processing of color in the retina. For more in-depth studies, the adaptive non-linear properties of the photoreceptors and of ganglion cells are addressed, exhibiting all the power of the retinal pre-processing of images as a system of information cleaning suitable for further cortical processing. As a target of retinal information, the primary visual area is presented as a bank of filters able to extract valuable descriptors of images, suitable for categorization and recognition and also for local information extraction such as saliency and perspective. All along the book, many comparisons between the models and human perception are discussed as well as detailed applications to computer vision.http://pilot.passhe.edu:8031/cgi-bin/Pwebrecon.cgi?bbid=476542http://pilot.passhe.edu:8031/cgi-bin/Pwebrecon.cgi?bbid=454163Visual group theory / . .

Kiran S. Kedlaya, Bjorn Poonen, Ravi Vakil.Description: Publisher description: The William Lowell Putnam Mathematical Competition is the premier undergraduate mathematical competition in North America. This volume contains problems from the years 1985-2000, with solutions and extensive commentary. It is unlike the first two Putnam volumes and unlike virtually every other problem-based book, in that it places the problems in the context of important mathematical themes. The authors highlight connections to other problems, to the curriculum, and to more advanced topics. The best problems contain kernels of sophisticated ideas related to important current research, and yet the problems are accessible to undergraduates. The heart of the book is in the solutions, which have been compiled through extensive research. In editing the solutions, the authors have kept a student audience in mind, explaining techniques that have relevance to more than the problem at hand, suggesting references for further reading, and mentioning related problems, some of which are unsolved.http://pilot.passhe.edu:8031/cgi-bin/Pwebrecon.cgi?bbid=456638http://pilot.passhe.edu:8031/cgi-bin/Pwebrecon.cgi?bbid=488069Wired for war : . the robotics revolution and conflict in the twenty-first century / .
