Handbook of Complex Variables

This book is written to be a convenient reference for the working scientist, student, or engineer who needs to know and use basic concepts in complex analysis. It is not a book of mathematical theory. It is instead a book of mathematical practice. All the basic ideas of complex analysis, as well as many typical applica­ tions, are treated.

Math from Three to Seven: The Story of a Mathematical Circle for Preschoolers

Math from Three to Seven: The Story of a Mathematical Circle for PreschoolersThis book is a captivating account of a professional mathematician's experiences conducting a math circle for preschoolers in his apartment in Moscow in the 1980s. As anyone who has taught or raised young children knows, mathematical education for little kids is a real mystery. What are they capable of? What should they learn first? How hard should they work? Should they even "work" at all? Should we push them, or just let them be? There are no correct answers to these questions, and the author deals with them in classic math-circle style: he doesn't ask and then answer a question, but shows us a problem--be it mathematical or pedagogical--and describes to us what happened.

Magnificent Mistakes in MathematicsMagnificent Mistakes in Mathematics

In the nineteenth century, English mathematician William Shanks spent fifteen years calculating the value of pi, setting a record for the number of decimal places. Later, his calculation was reproduced using large wooden numerals to decorate the cupola of a hall in the Palais de la Découverte in Paris. However, in 1946, with the aid of a mechanical desk calculator that ran for seventy hours, it was discovered that there was a mistake in the 528th decimal place. Today, supercomputers have determined the value of pi to trillions of decimal places.

Fractional Fields and Applications (Mathematics and Applications)

This book focuses mainly on fractional Brownian fields and their extensions. It has been used to teach graduate students at Grenoble and Toulouse's Universities. It is as self-contained as possible and contains numerous exercises, with solutions in an appendix. After a foreword by Stéphane Jaffard, a long first chapter is devoted to classical results from stochastic fields and fractal analysis.

Chance, Strategy, and Choice: An Introduction to the Mathematics of Games and Elections

Games and elections are fundamental activities in society with applications in economics, political science, and sociology. These topics offer familiar, current, and lively subjects for a course in mathematics. This classroom-tested undergraduate textbook, primarily intended for a general education course in game theory at the freshman or sophomore level, provides an elementary treatment of games and elections.

Topics in Statistical Dependence (Lecture notes-monograph series)

Concepts of positive dependence are becoming increasingly important in probability, statistics and their applications. While these concepts are traditionally viewed as focusing on positive and negative dependence for random vectors, they also are related to broader issues in the modeling and the analysis of multivariate data, and, in particular, ordinal data. Historically, positive dependence for the multivariate normal distribution had been synonymous with positive correlations. Other subsequently developed multivariate distributions were often interpreted with this perspective.
