Entertaining Mathematical Puzzles
Only an elementary knowledge of math is needed to enjoy this entertaining compilation of brainteasers. It includes a mixture of old and new riddles covering a variety of mathematical topics: money, speed, plane and solid geometry, probability, topology, tricky puzzles and more. Carefully explained solutions follow each problem. 65...   Stellar Polarimetry
To many astrophysicists, Stellar P larimetry is a Cinderella subject considered as being so insignificant and, at the same time, being so esoteric as to be ignored and left alone. Others have followed and developed the theme with an enthusiastic passion. There can be no doubt, however, that the study of polarization within Astronomy has a...   Multidimensional Stochastic Processes as Rough Paths: Theory and Applications
Rough path analysis provides a fresh perspective on Ito's important theory of stochastic differential equations. Key theorems of modern stochastic analysis (existence and limit theorems for stochastic flows, FreidlinWentzell theory, the StroockVaradhan support description) can be obtained with dramatic simplifications. Classical... 

Basic Ship Theory Volume 1, Fifth Edition
Rawson and Tupper's Basic Ship Theory, first published in 1968, is widely known as the standard introductory text for naval architecture students, as well as being a useful reference for the more experienced designer.
The fifth edition continues to provide a balance between theory and practice. Volume 1 discusses ship geometry and...   Mathematica® in Action: Problem Solving Through Visualization and Computation
In this third edition of Mathematica in Action, awardwinning author Stan Wagon guides beginner and veteran users alike through Mathematica's powerful tools for mathematical exploration. The transition to Mathematica 7 is made smooth with plenty of examples and case studies that utilize Mathematica's newest tools, such as...   Machinery's Handbook 28th Larger Print Edition (Machinery's Handbook)
Celebrating nearly 100 years as The Bible of the Mechanical Industries , the 28th edition brings together volumes of knowledge, information and data gathered, revised and improved upon from experts throughout the mechanical industries. Extraordinarily comprehensive yet easy to use since it premiered, Machinery s Handbook provides mechanical... 

The Pythagorean Theorem: A 4,000Year History
By any measure, the Pythagorean theorem is the most famous statement in all of mathematics, one remembered from high school geometry class by even the most mathphobic students. Well over four hundred proofs are known to exist, including ones by a twelveyearold Einstein, a young blind girl, Leonardo da Vinci, and a future president of the...   Geometric Partial Differential Equations and Image Analysis
This book is an introduction to the use of geometric partial differential equations (PDEs) in image processing and computer vision. This relatively new research area brings a number of new concepts into the field, providing, among other things, a very fundamental and formal approach to image processing. Stateoftheart practical results in...   

The Unimaginable Mathematics of Borges' Library of Babel
"The Library of Babel" is arguably Jorge Luis Borges' best known storymemorialized along with Borges on an Argentine postage stamp. Now, in The Unimaginable Mathematics of Borges' Library of Babel, William Goldbloom Bloch takes readers on a fascinating tour of the mathematical ideas hidden within one of the classic works...   Breaking Ocean Waves: Geometry, Structure and Remote Sensing
This book represents the most comprehensive description of the physical findings of an investigation into the spatiotemporal characteristics of the gravity of breaking waves and the foam activity in open sea by methods and instruments of optical and microwave remote sensing.
The study of physical and electrodynamics'...   Kinematic Analysis of Robot Manipulators
This text provides a firstlevel understanding of the structure, mobility, and analysis of serial manipulators. A serial manipulator is an unclosed or open movable polygon consisting of a series of links and joints. One end is fixed to ground, and attached to the open end is a hand or end effector that can move freely in space.
The...
