|Illustrated Special Relativity Through Its Paradoxes: A Fusion of Linear Algebra, Graphics, and Reality
Lowest new price: $58.41
Lowest used price: $68.56
List price: $74.99
Author: John de Pillis
This work shows that linear algebra is a natural language for special relativity. Requiring a minimum of expertise beyond basic matrix theory, the authors use full-color illustrations to introduce inertial frames and Minkowski diagrams that explain the nature of simultaneity, why faster-than-light travel is impossible, and the proper way to add velocities. We resolve the twin paradox, the train-in-tunnel paradox, the pea-shooter paradox and the lesser-known accommodating universe paradox and the bug-rivet paradox that shows how rigidity is incompatible with special relativity. Since Einstein, in his seminal 1905 paper introducing the theory of special relativity, acknowledged his debt to Clerk Maxwell, we fully develop Maxwell's four equations that unify the theories of electricity, optics, and magnetism.These equations also lead to a simple calculation for the frame-independent speed of electromagnetic waves in a vacuum. (Maxwell himself was unaware that light was a special case of electromagnetic waves.) Several chapters are devoted to early experiments of Roemer, Fizeau, and de Sitter in their efforts to measure the speed of light along with the Michelson-Morley experiment abolishing the necessity of a universal aether. The exposition is thorough, but not overly technical, and bountifully illustrated by cartoons. Supplemental interactive animations are found at Special-Relativity-Illustrated.com. This book is be suitable for a one-semester general-education introduction to special relativity. It is especially well-suited to self-study by interested laypersons or use as a supplement to a more traditional text.

Brand: Brand: Princeton University Press
Numerical Methods provides a clear and concise exploration of standard numerical analysis topics, as well as nontraditional ones, including mathematical modeling, Monte Carlo methods, Markov chains, and fractals. Filled with appealing examples that will motivate students, the textbook considers modern application areas, such as information retrieval and animation, and classical topics from physics and engineering. Exercises use MATLAB and promote understanding of computational results.
The book gives instructors the flexibility to emphasize different aspects--design, analysis, or computer implementation--of numerical algorithms, depending on the background and interests of students. Designed for upper-division undergraduates in mathematics or computer science classes, the textbook assumes that students have prior knowledge of linear algebra and calculus, although these topics are reviewed in the text. Short discussions of the history of numerical methods are interspersed throughout the chapters. The book also includes polynomial interpolation at Chebyshev points, use of the MATLAB package Chebfun, and a section on the fast Fourier transform. Supplementary materials are available online.

Author: Joel N. Franklin
Not only is matrix theory significant in a wide range of fields mathematical economics, quantum physics, geophysics, electrical network synthesis, crystallography, and structural engineering, among others-but with the vast proliferation of digital computers, knowledge of matrix theory is a must for every modern engineer, mathematician, and scientist. Matrices represent linear transformations from a finite set of numbers to another finite set of numbers.
Since many important problems are linear, and since digital computers with finite memory manipulate only finite sets of numbers, the solution of linear problems by digital computers usually involves matrices. Developed from the author's course on matrix theory at the California
Institute of Technology, the book begins with a concise presentation of the theory of determinants, continues with a discussion of classical linear algebra, and an optional chapter on the use of matrices to solve systems of linear triangularizations of Hermitian and nonHermitian matrices, as well as a chapter presenting a proof of the difficult and important matrix theory of Jordan. The book concludes with discussions of variational principles and perturbation theory of matrices, matrix numerical analysis, and an introduction to the subject of linear computations.
The book is designed to meet many different needs, and because it is mathematically rigorous, it may be used by students of pure and applied mathematics. Since it is oriented towards applications, it is valuable to students of engineering, science, and the social sciences. And because it contains the basic preparation in matrix theory required for numerical analysis, it can be used by students whose main interest is computers. The book assumes very little mathematical preparation, and except for the single section on the continuous dependence of eigenvalues on matrices, a knowledge of elementary algebra and calculus is sufficient.
|Direct Methods for Sparse Linear Systems (Fundamentals of Algorithms)
Lowest new price: $59.93
Lowest used price: $104.05
List price: $72.50
Author: Timothy A. Davis
Fundamentals of Algorithms 2 Computational scientists often encounter problems requiring the solution of sparse systems of linear equations. Attacking these problems efficiently requires an in-depth knowledge of the underlying theory, algorithms, and data structures found in sparse matrix software libraries. Here, Davis presents the fundamentals of sparse matrix algorithms to provide the requisite background. The book includes CSparse, a concise downloadable sparse matrix package that illustrates the algorithms and theorems presented in the book and equips readers with the tools necessary to understand larger and more complex software packages. With a strong emphasis on MATLAB® and the C programming language, Direct Methods for Sparse Linear Systems equips readers with the working knowledge required to use sparse solver packages and write code to interface applications to those packages. The book also explains how MATLAB performs its sparse matrix computations. This invaluable book is essential to computational scientists and software developers who want to understand the theory and algorithms behind modern techniques used to solve large sparse linear systems. The book also serves as an excellent practical resource for students with an interest in combinatorial scientific computing.

Author: Alan J. Laub
Brand: Brand: SIAM: Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics
Matrix Analysis for Scientists and Engineers provides a blend of undergraduate- and graduate-level topics in matrix theory and linear algebra that relieves instructors of the burden of reviewing such material in subsequent courses that depend heavily on the language of matrices. Consequently, the text provides an often-needed bridge between undergraduate-level matrix theory and linear algebra and the level of matrix analysis required for graduate-level study and research. The text is sufficiently compact that the material can be taught comfortably in a one-quarter or one-semester course. Throughout the book, the author emphasizes the concept of matrix factorization to provide a foundation for a later course in numerical linear algebra. The author addresses connections to differential and difference equations as well as to linear system theory and encourages instructors to augment these examples with other applications of their own choosing.

|Iterative Methods for Sparse Linear Systems, Second Edition
Lowest new price: $97.83
Lowest used price: $69.96
List price: $113.50
Author: Yousef Saad
Brand: Brand: Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics
Tremendous progress has been made in the scientific and engineering disciplines regarding the use of iterative methods for linear systems. The size and complexity of linear and nonlinear systems arising in typical applications has grown, meaning that using direct solvers for the three-dimensional models of these problems is no longer effective. At the same time, parallel computing, becoming less expensive and standardized, has penetrated these application areas. Iterative methods are easier than direct solvers to implement on parallel computers but require approaches and solution algorithms that are different from classical methods. This second edition gives an in-depth, up-to-date view of practical algorithms for solving large-scale linear systems of equations, including a wide range of the best methods available today. A new chapter on multigrid techniques has been added, whilst material throughout has been updated, removed or shortened. Numerous exercises have been added, as well as an updated and expanded bibliography.
