Strange Curves, Counting Rabbits, & Other Mathematical Explorations

How does arithmetic permit us to ship images from house again to Earth? the place does the bell-shaped curve come from? Why do you want merely 23 humans in a room for a 50/50 probability of 2 of them sharing a similar birthday? In unusual Curves, Counting Rabbits, and different Mathematical Explorations, Keith Ball highlights how rules, in most cases from natural math, can resolution those questions and lots of extra.

Spectral Theory of Linear Differential Operators and Comparison Algebras

The most objective of this booklet is to introduce the reader to the idea that of comparability algebra, outlined as a kind of C*-algebra of singular necessary operators. the 1st a part of the e-book develops the mandatory components of the spectral idea of differential operators in addition to the elemental homes of elliptic moment order differential operators.
