The author's main objective in writing the Hamilton Education Guides manual series is to provide students with specific subjects on mathematics. The author hopes that this simplified teaching method stimulates the interest of math students of all ages as math becomes increasingly important in our high technology world.

Recently the issue of early childhood mathematics has come to the fore and with it the importance of teaching geometrical concepts and reasoning from a young age. Geometry is a key domain mentioned in many national curricula and may also support the learning of other mathematical topics, such as number and patterns. This book is based on the rich experience (research and practice) of the authors and is devoted entirely to the learnin...

Mathematical Olympiad Treasures aims at building a bridge between ordinary high school exercises and more sophisticated, intricate and abstract concepts in undergraduate mathematics. The book contains a stimulating collection of problems in the subjects of algebra, geometry, trigonometry, number theory and combinatorics. While it may be considered a sequel to "Mathematical Olympiad Challenges," the focus is on engaging a wider audien...

Pencils of Cubics and Algebraic Curves in the Real Projective Plane thoroughly examines the combinatorial configurations of n generic points in RP². Especially how it is the data describing the mutual position of each point with respect to lines and conics passing through others. The first section in this book answers questions such as, can one count the combinatorial configurations up to the action of the symmetric group? How...

In Part One of this comprehensive and frequently cited treatment, the authors develop Euclidean and Bolyai-Lobachevskian geometry on the basis of an axiom system due, in principle, to the work of David Hilbert. Part Two develops projective geometry in much the same way. An Introduction provides background on topological space, analytic geometry, and other relevant topics, and rigorous proofs appear throughout the text. Topics covered...

“The textbook Lectures on constructive approximation teaches the basics and details of Fourier, spline, and wavelet methods on the real line, the sphere, and the ball. … The style of the book is clearly that of a textbook, since the author makes a great effort to make very complicated concepts comprehensible to the reader. Throughout the book, numerous numerical examples and graphical illustrations support the explanations. This book...

Photovoltaics, among the different renewable energy sources (RES), has become more popular. In recent years, however, many research topics have arisen as a result of the problems that are constantly faced in smart-grid and microgrid operations, such as forecasting of the output of power plant production, storage sizing, modeling, and control optimization of photovoltaic systems. Computational intelligence algorithms (evolutionary opt...

For six months after Pearl Harbor the nimble Japanese Zero-sen plane dominated the Pacific air war. Then, on June 4, 1942 a Zero crashed on tiny Akutan Island in the Aleutians. It lay there for five weeks until spotted by an American plane. Hauled back to California, the Zero revealed its secrets in a series of tests and analyses. Fast, but lacking protection for the pilot as well as a self-sealing gas tank which all U.S. planes had,...

This book presents a consistent development of the Kohn-Nirenberg type global quantization theory in the setting of graded nilpotent Lie groups in terms of their representations. It contains a detailed exposition of related background topics on homogeneous Lie groups, nilpotent Lie groups, and the analysis of Rockland operators on graded Lie groups together with their associated Sobolev spaces. For the specific example of the Heisenb...
