Imagine an equilateral triangle. Now, imagine smaller equilateral triangles perched in the center of each side of the original triangle--you have a Star of David. Now, place still smaller equilateral triangles in the center of each of the star's 12 sides. Repeat this process infinitely and you have a Koch snowflake, a mind-bending geometric...

This text pretends the analytical statement of the refrigeration and acondiontioning air jumps straightforward. And today, more than ever, specially in these times in which the environmental concerns are subject of first degree in every corner of the world.

How is it possible maintain the wished equilibrium between comfort and...

This book is intended to survey the most important algorithms in use on computers today and to teach fundamental techniques to the growing number of people who are interested in becoming serious computer users. It is appropriate for use as a textbook for a second, third or fourth course in computer science: after students have...

This book has grown from notes used by the authors to instruct fast transform classes. One class was sponsored by the Training Department of Rockwell International, and another was sponsored by the Department of Electrical Engineering of The University of Texas at Arlington. Some of the material was also used in a short course sponsored by the...

The journal Computing has established a series of supplement volumes the fourth
of which appears this year. Its purpose is to provide a coherent presentation of a
new topic in a single volume. The previous subjects were Computer Arithmetic
1977, Fundamentals of Numerical Computation 1980, and Parallel Processes and
Related Automata...

This book is a revision and extension of notes I wrote for a graduate seminar in relational database theory given at Stony Brook. The purpose of that course was to give students enough background in relational database theory to enable them to understand the current research being done in the field. I have not attempted to be exhaustive in covering...

STARTING from the somewhat vague notion of symmetry = harmony of proportions, these four lectures gradually develop first the geometric concept of symmetry in its several forms, as bilateral, translatory, rotational, ornamental and crystallographic symmetry, etc., and finally rise to the general idea underlying all these special forms, namely that...

Most of the reasons that I have written this book can be explained in terms of what reportedly happened one day in the eighteenth century when the great German mathematician Leonhard Euler confronted the eminent French scholar and atheist Denis Diderot with a spurious mathematical proof for the existence of God. Euler, it seems, accepted an...

The material in this book is the result of courses given at Stanford University as “File and Database Structures” since 1971. Initially little coherent published material was available, even though a large number of references could be cited.

In particular, no clear definition of the concept of a schema was available. Now...

Most students study calculus for its use as a tool in areas other than mathematics. They desire information about why calculus is important, and where andhow it can be applied. I kept these facts in mind as I wrote this text. In particular, when introducing new concepts I often refer to problems that are familiar to students and that require...
