The 9th volume in Avner Friedmans collection of Mathematics in Industrial problems. Fostering interaction between industry and mathematics at the "grass roots" level, the problems presented here arise from models developed by industrial scientists engaged in R&D of new or improved products. Topics explored in this volume include diffusion in porous media and in rubber/glass transition, coating flows, solvation of molecules, semiconductor processing, optoelectronics, photographic images, density-functional theory, sphere packing, performance evaluation, causal networks, electrical well logg

This book is a series of self-contained workshops in mathematics which aim to enthuse and inspire young people, their parents and teachers with the joy and excitement of modern mathematics. Written in an informal style, each chapter describes how novel mathematical ideas relate directly to real life. The chapters contain both a description of the mathematics and its applications together with problem sheets, their solutions and ideas for further work, project and field trips. Topics include: mazes, folk dancing, sundials, magic, castles, codes, number systems, and slide rules. This book will b

The primary goal of these lectures is to introduce the beginner to the finite-dimensional representations of Lie groups and Lie algebras. Intended to serve non-specialists, the concentration of the text is on examples. The general theory is developed sparingly, and then mainly as a useful and unifying language to describe phenomena already encountered in concrete cases. The book begins with a brief tour through representation theory of finite groups, with emphasis determined by what is useful for Lie Groups; in particular, the symmetric groups are treated in some detail. The focus then tur

This text is intended to provide graduate and advanced undergraduate students as well as the general mathematical public with a modern treatment of various theorems and examples in mathematics. A carefully arranged mixture of theorems, examples, exercises, hints and discussions sharpens and highlights many of the fundamental aspects of the subject matter, and constitutes a rounding out and elaboration of the standard parts of algebra, analysis, geometry, logic, probability, set theory, and topology. Essentially self-contained, the book presents this material with a treatment sensitive to the p

This text begins with the simplest geometric manifolds, the Grassmann determinant principle for the plane and the Grassmann principle for space; and more. Also explores affine and projective transformations; higher point transformations; transformations with change of space element; and the theory of the imaginary. Concludes with a systematic discussion of geometry and its foundations. 1939 edition. 141 figures.
