This work is an introduction to mathematical analysis at an elementary level. Emphasis is given to the construction of national and then real numbers, using the method of equivalence classes and of Cauchy sequences. The text includes the presentation of: sequences of real numbers, infinite numerical series, continuous functions, deriviatives...

“BRAD HELPED US DEVELOP THE TOOLS TO PICK A-PLAYER LEADERS AT GE.” —JACK WELCH

Great companies, large and small, rise or fall because of their talent; the more high performers on your team, the more successful your organization will be. Of course, that’s easier said than done. Research...

Before the Java language was available, distributed systems engineering was greatly concerned with the problem of heterogeneity—the differences between CPUs, OSes, languages, and data formats. The challenge was to create architectureneutral formats and protocols which could be adapted to any architecture without burdening the programmer. RPC...

'I recommend this book to anyone who wants to appreciate the often subtle interactions between algorithm research and engineering applications. For the engineer, it comprehensively summarizes 25 years of intellectual development in the understanding of the basic Lanczos algorithm and its many variants. For the numerical analysts, it describes the...

Simple introduction to plastic analysis of complex steel structures

The plastic analysis method has been used extensively by engineers for designing steel structures. Simpler structures can be analyzed using the basic virtual work formulation, but more complex frames are evaluated with specialist computer software. This new...

Since 1934 the analytic theory of numbers has been largely transformed by the \vork of Vinogradov. This \vork, which has led to remarkable ne\v results, is characterized by its supreme ingenuity and great power.

Vinogradov has expounded his method and its applications in a series of papers and in two monographs 1), which appeared in 1937...

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...

Arthur C. Clarke once wrote that any sufficiently advanced civilization would possess seemingly magical powers to a lesser-advanced one. Technology, and in particular computer technology, has and always will present a Janus head...

One of the challenges of web programming is remembering what you can do with what, and what works with everything else. Sure, you can create a button, but can you change its color and font to match the style of your site? And are you sure it will look the same on all browsers? With The Web Programmer's Desk Reference, you can find...

As the industry standard method for enriching the presentation of HTML-based web pages, Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) allow you to give web pages more structure and a more sophisticated look. But first, you have to get past CSS theory and resolve real-world problems.
