            Strange Curves, Counting Rabbits, & Other Mathematical Explorations (EPUB ebook – Course Book)

            By Ball, Keith

            How does mathematics enable us to send pictures from space back to Earth? Where does the bell-shaped curve come from? Drawing on areas of mathematics from probability theory, number theory, and geometry, this work highlights how ideas, mostly from pure math, can answer these ques...tions. It includes puzzles and problems of varying difficulty.

            Nonplussed!: Mathematical Proof of Implausible Ideas (EPUB ebook – Course Book)

            By Havil, Julian

            Math - the application of reasonable logic to reasonable assumptions - usually produces reasonable results. But sometimes math generates astonishing paradoxes - conclusions that seem completely unreasonable or just plain impossible but that are nevertheless demonstrably true. Thi...s is a collection of paradoxes from many different areas of math.

            Mathematical Methods in Elasticity Imaging
             

            Mathematical Methods in Elasticity Imaging (EPUB ebook)

            By Ammari, Habib; Bretin, Elie; Garnier, Josselin; Kang, Hyeonbae; Lee, Hyundae

            This book is the first to comprehensively explore elasticity imaging and examines recent, important developments in asymptotic imaging, modeling, and analysis of deterministic and stochastic elastic wave propagation phenomena. It derives the best possible functional images for sm...all inclusions and cracks within the context of stability and resolution, and introduces a topological derivative-based imaging framework for detecting elastic inclusions in the time-harmonic regime. For imaging extended elastic inclusions, accurate optimal control methodologies are designed and the effects of uncertainties of the geometric or physical parameters on stability and resolution properties are evaluated. In particular, the book shows how localized damage to a mechanical structure affects its dynamic characteristics, and how measured eigenparameters are linked to elastic inclusion or crack location, orientation, and size. Demonstrating a novel method for identifying, locating, and estimating inclusions and cracks in elastic structures, the book opens possibilities for a mathematical and numerical framework for elasticity imaging of nanoparticles and cellular structures.
