Too frequently, when attempting to get a solution for a problem, one is confronted with the fact that the problem is NP-haid. This, in the words of Garey and Johnson, means "I can't find an...   Introduction to Finite Element Analysis Using MATLAB® and Abaqus There are some books that target the theory of the finite element, while others focus on the programming side of things. Introduction to Finite Element Analysis Using MATLAB® and Abaqus accomplishes both. This book teaches the first principles of the finite element method. It presents the theory of the finite...   The History of Approximation Theory: From Euler to BernsteinThe problem of approximating a given quantity is one of the oldest challenges faced by mathematicians. Its increasing importance in contemporary mathematics has created an entirely new area known as Approximation Theory. The modern theory was initially developed along two divergent schools of thought: the Eastern or Russian group, employing...  Reasoning with Probabilistic and Deterministic Graphical Models: Exact Algorithms (Synthesis Lectures on Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning) Graphical models (e.g., Bayesian and constraint networks, influence diagrams, and Markov decision processes) have become a central paradigm for knowledge representation and reasoning in both artificial intelligence and computer science in general. These models are used to perform many reasoning tasks, such as scheduling, planning and...   The Finite Element Method: Theory, Implementation, and Applications (Texts in Computational Science and Engineering) This book gives an introduction to the finite element method as a general computational method for solving partial differential equations approximately. Our approach is mathematical in nature with a strong focus on the underlying mathematical principles, such as approximation properties of piecewise polynomial spaces, and variational...   A Matrix Handbook for Statisticians (Wiley Series in Probability and Statistics)A comprehensive, must-have handbook of matrix methods with a unique emphasis on statistical applications This timely book, A Matrix Handbook for Statisticians, provides a comprehensive, encyclopedic treatment of matrices as they relate to both statistical concepts and methodologies. Written by an experienced authority on matrices and...  The Theory of Differential Equations: Classical & Qualitative Differential equations first appeared in the late seventeenth century in the work of Isaac Newton, Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz, and the Bernoulli brothers, Jakob and Johann. They occurred as a natural consequence of the efforts of these great scientists to apply the new ideas of the calculus to certain problems in mechanics, such as the paths of...   Partial Differential Equations and the Finite Element MethodA systematic introduction to partial differential equations and modern finite element methods for their efficient numerical solution Partial Differential Equations and the Finite Element Method provides a much-needed, clear, and systematic introduction to modern theory of partial differential equations (PDEs) and...   Introduction to Partial Differential Equations (Undergraduate Texts in Mathematics) This textbook is designed for a one year course covering the fundamentals of partial differential equations, geared towards advanced undergraduates and beginning graduate students in mathematics, science, engineering, and elsewhere. The exposition carefully balances solution techniques, mathematical rigor, and significant applications, all...  Differential Equations and Control TheoryThis volume is based on papers presented at the International Workshop on Differential Equations and Optimal Control, held at the Department of Mathematics of Ohio University in Athens, Ohio. The main objective of this international meeting was to feature new trends in the theory and applications of partial differential and functional-differential...   Mathematical Models for Poroelastic Flows (Atlantis Studies in Differential Equations) The book is devoted to rigorous derivation of macroscopic mathematical models as a homogenization of exact mathematical models at the microscopic level. The idea is quite natural: one first must describe the joint motion of the elastic skeleton and the fluid in pores at the microscopic level by means of classical continuum mechanics, and then...   Principles of Lasers and OpticsRadiation from lasers is different from conventional optical light because, likemicrowave radiation, it is approximately monochromatic. Although each laser hasits own fine spectral distribution and noise properties, the electric and magneticfields from lasers are considered to have precise phase and amplitude variationsin...
