Download Benoit Mandelbrot:A Life in Many Dimensions (Fractals and by Michael Frame,Nathan Cohen PDF

By Michael Frame,Nathan Cohen

This is a suite of articles, many written via those who labored with Mandelbrot, memorializing the amazing breadth and intensity of his paintings in technology and the humanities. members contain mathematicians, physicists, biologists, economists, and engineers, as anticipated; and likewise artists, musicians, lecturers, an historian, an architect, a filmmaker, and a comic book. a few articles are fairly technical, others solely descriptive. All comprise tales approximately Benoit.

Also integrated are chapters on fractals and song by way of Charles Wuorinen and through Harlan Brothers, on fractals and finance via Richard Hudson and via Christian Walter, on fractal invisibility cloaks through Nathan Cohen, and a private memory through Aliette Mandelbrot.

While he's recognized most generally for his paintings in arithmetic and in finance, Benoit inspired virtually each box of contemporary highbrow task. No different publication captures the breadth of all of Benoit's accomplishments.

A.D. Alexandrov: Intrinsic Geometry of Convex Surfaces: Selected Works Part 2 (Classics of Soviet Mathematics)

A. D. Alexandrov's contribution to the sector of intrinsic geometry was once unique and extremely influential. this article is a vintage that is still unsurpassed in its readability and scope. It provides his middle fabric, initially released in Russian in 1948, starting wth an overview of the most techniques after which exploring different themes, reminiscent of common propositions on an intrinsic metric; angles and curvature; lifestyles of a convex polyhedron with prescribed metric; curves on convex surfaces; and the position of particular curvature.

The Gelfand Mathematical Seminars, 1990–1992

This Seminar all started in Moscow in November 1943 and has persisted with no interruption as much as the current. we're satisfied that with this vol­ ume, Birkhiiuser has started to post papers of talks from the Seminar. It was once, regrettably, tough to arrange their book prior to 1990. due to the fact that 1990, lots of the talks have taken position at Rutgers collage in New Brunswick, New Jersey.

Perspectives in Analysis, Geometry, and Topology: On the Occasion of the 60th Birthday of Oleg Viro: 296 (Progress in Mathematics)

The articles during this quantity are invited papers from the Marcus Wallenberg symposium and specialize in learn topics that bridge the gap between analysis, geometry, and topology. The encounters among those 3 fields are common and sometimes offer impetus for significant breakthroughs in applications. Topics comprise new advancements in low dimensional topology regarding invariants of hyperlinks and 3 and 4 manifolds; Perelman's astonishing evidence of the Poincare conjecture; and the new advances made in algebraic, advanced, symplectic, and tropical geometry.

Mathematical Concepts

The most goal of this booklet is to explain and strengthen the conceptual, structural and summary taking into account arithmetic. particular mathematical buildings are used to demonstrate the conceptual process; offering a deeper perception into mutual relationships and summary universal gains. those rules are conscientiously prompted, defined and illustrated by means of examples in order that the various extra technical proofs will be passed over.
