Euclidean Geometry and Transformations (Dover Books on by Clayton W. Dodge

By Clayton W. Dodge

"A sturdy textbook." ― Mathematical Gazette. This creation to Euclidean geometry emphasizes either the speculation and the sensible software of isometries and similarities to geometric modifications. every one bankruptcy starts off with an non-compulsory observation at the historical past of geometry. Contents contain glossy easy geometry, isometries and similarities within the airplane, vectors and complicated numbers in geometry, inversion, and isometries in house. quite a few routines seem through the textual content, a lot of that have corresponding solutions and tricks behind the e-book. necessities for this article, that's compatible for undergraduate classes, contain highschool algebra, geometry, and user-friendly trigonometry. 1972 edition.

Finsler Geometry: An Approach via Randers Spaces

"Finsler Geometry: An technique through Randers areas" completely bargains with a distinct classification of Finsler metrics -- Randers metrics, that are outlined because the sum of a Riemannian metric and a 1-form. Randers metrics derive from the examine on normal Relativity conception and feature been utilized in lots of components of the average sciences.

Mathematical Concepts

The most goal of this e-book is to explain and increase the conceptual, structural and summary deliberating arithmetic. particular mathematical constructions are used to demonstrate the conceptual technique; supplying a deeper perception into mutual relationships and summary universal beneficial properties. those rules are rigorously influenced, defined and illustrated by way of examples in order that a number of the extra technical proofs may be passed over.

Modern General Topology (Bibliotheca Mathematica)

Bibliotheca Mathematica: a sequence of Monographs on natural and utilized arithmetic, quantity VII: smooth normal Topology makes a speciality of the tactics, operations, rules, and methods hired in natural and utilized arithmetic, together with areas, cardinal and ordinal numbers, and mappings. The ebook first elaborates on set, cardinal and ordinal numbers, easy options in topological areas, and numerous topological areas.

Fractal Functions, Fractal Surfaces, and Wavelets

Fractal services, Fractal Surfaces, and Wavelets, moment version, is the 1st systematic exposition of the speculation of neighborhood iterated functionality structures, neighborhood fractal features and fractal surfaces, and their connections to wavelets and wavelet units. The publication relies on Massopust’s paintings on and contributions to the speculation of fractal interpolation, and the writer makes use of a few tools—including research, topology, algebra, and likelihood theory—to introduce readers to this fascinating topic.
