A Comprehensive Course in Analysis by Poincaré Prize winner Barry Simon is a five-volume set that can serve as a graduate-level analysis textbook with a lot of additional bonus information, including hundreds of problems and numerous notes that extend the text and provide important historical background. Depth and breadth of exposition make this set a valuable reference source for almost all areas of classical analysis. Part 2A is devoted to basic complex analysis. It interweaves three analytic threads associated with Cauchy, Riemann, and Weierstrass, respectively. Cauchy's view focuses on the differential and integral calculus of functions of a complex variable, with the key topics being the Cauchy integral formula and contour integration. For Riemann, the geometry of the complex plane is central, with key topics being fractional linear transformations and conformal mapping. For Weierstrass, the power series is king, with key topics being spaces of analytic functions, the product formulas of Weierstrass and Hadamard, and the Weierstrass theory of elliptic functions. Subjects in this volume that are often missing in other texts include the Cauchy integral theorem when the contour is the boundary of a Jordan region, continued fractions, two proofs of the big Picard theorem, the uniformization theorem, Ahlfors's function, the sheaf of analytic germs, and Jacobi, as well as Weierstrass, elliptic functions.

The development of complex analysis is based on issues related to holomorphic continuation and holomorphic approximation. This volume presents a unified view of these topics in finite and infinite dimensions. A high-level tutorial in pure and applied mathematics, its prerequisites include a familiarity with the basic properties of holomorphic functions, the principles of Banach and Hilbert spaces, and the theory of Lebesgue integration. The four-part treatment begins with an overview of the basic properties of holomorphic mappings and holomorphic domains in Banach spaces. The second section explores differentiable mappings, differentiable forms, and polynomially convex compact sets, in which the results are applied to the study of Banach and Fréchet algebras. Subsequent sections examine plurisubharmonic functions and pseudoconvex domains in Banach spaces, along with Riemann domains and envelopes of holomorphy. In addition to its value as a text for advanced graduate students of mathematics, this volume also functions as a reference for researchers and professionals.

Distribution theory, a relatively recent mathematical approach to classical Fourier analysis, not only opened up new areas of research but also helped promote the development of such mathematical disciplines as ordinary and partial differential equations, operational calculus, transformation theory, and functional analysis. This text was one of the first to give a clear explanation of distribution theory; it combines the theory effectively with extensive practical applications to science and engineering problems. Based on a graduate course given at the State University of New York at Stony Brook, this book has two objectives: to provide a comparatively elementary introduction to distribution theory and to describe the generalized Fourier and Laplace transformations and their applications to integrodifferential equations, difference equations, and passive systems. After an introductory chapter defining distributions and the operations that apply to them, Chapter 2 considers the calculus of distributions, especially limits, differentiation, integrations, and the interchange of limiting processes. Some deeper properties of distributions, such as their local character as derivatives of continuous functions, are given in Chapter 3. Chapter 4 introduces the distributions of slow growth, which arise naturally in the generalization of the Fourier transformation. Chapters 5 and 6 cover the convolution process and its use in representing differential and difference equations. The distributional Fourier and Laplace transformations are developed in Chapters 7 and 8, and the latter transformation is applied in Chapter 9 to obtain an operational calculus for the solution of differential and difference equations of the initial-condition type. Some of the previous theory is applied in Chapter 10 to a discussion of the fundamental properties of certain physical systems, while Chapter 11 ends the book with a consideration of periodic distributions. Suitable for a graduate course for engineering and science students or for a senior-level undergraduate course for mathematics majors, this book presumes a knowledge of advanced calculus and the standard theorems on the interchange of limit processes. A broad spectrum of problems has been included to satisfy the diverse needs of various types of students.

An Introduction to Lebesgue Integration and Fourier Series

Author: Howard J. Wilcox,David L. Myers

Publisher: Courier Corporation

Category: Mathematics

View: 954

This book arose out of the authors' desire to present Lebesgue integration and Fourier series on an undergraduate level, since most undergraduate texts do not cover this material or do so in a cursory way. The result is a clear, concise, well-organized introduction to such topics as the Riemann integral, measurable sets, properties of measurable sets, measurable functions, the Lebesgue integral, convergence and the Lebesgue integral, pointwise convergence of Fourier series and other subjects. The authors not only cover these topics in a useful and thorough way, they have taken pains to motivate the student by keeping the goals of the theory always in sight, justifying each step of the development in terms of those goals. In addition, whenever possible, new concepts are related to concepts already in the student's repertoire. Finally, to enable readers to test their grasp of the material, the text is supplemented by numerous examples and exercises. Mathematics students as well as students of engineering and science will find here a superb treatment, carefully thought out and well presented , that is ideal for a one semester course. The only prerequisite is a basic knowledge of advanced calculus, including the notions of compactness, continuity, uniform convergence and Riemann integration.

Needhams neuartiger Zugang zur Funktionentheorie wurde von der Fachpresse begeistert aufgenommen. Mit über 500 zum großen Teil perspektivischen Grafiken vermittelt er im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes eine Anschauung von der sonst oft als trocken empfundenen Funktionentheorie. 'Anschauliche Funktionentheorie ist eine wahre Freude und ein Buch so recht nach meinem Herzen. Indem er ausschließlich seine neuartige geometrische Perspektive verwendet, enthüllt Tristan Needham viele überraschende und bisher weitgehend unbeachtete Facetten der Schönheit der Funktionentheorie.'

Das vorliegende Buch besteht aus zwei Teilen. Teil I enthält einen axiomatischen Aufbau der euklidischen Geometrie auf Grund eines Axiomensystems von Tarski, das in einem gewissen Sinne (auch für die absolute Geometrie) gleichwertig ist mit dem Hilbertschen Axiomensystem, aber formalisiert ist in einer Sprache, die für die Betrachtungen in Teil II besonders geeignet ist. Mehrere solche Axio mensysteme wurden schon vor langer Zeit von Tarski veröffentlicht. Hier wird nun die Durchführung eines Aufbaus der Geometrie auf Grund eines solchen Axiomensystems - unter Benutzung von Resultaten von H. N. Gupta - allgemein zugänglich gemacht. Die vorliegende Darstel lung wurde vom zuerst genannten Autor allein geschrieben, aber sie beruht zum Teil auf unveröffentlichten Resultaten von Alfred Tarski und Wanda Szmielew; daher gebührt ihnen ein Teil der Autorschaft. Mehr über Entstehung und Inhalt von Teil I sowie über die Geschichte der Tarskischen Axiomensysteme wird in der Einleitung (Abschnitt I.O) gesagt. Teil II enthält metamathematische Untersuchungen und Ergebnisse über verschiedene Geometrien, was vielfac~ auf eine Anwendung von Methoden und Sätzen der mathematischen Logik auf Geometrien hinausläuft (vgl.

An investigation of the logical foundations of the theory behind Markov random processes, this text explores subprocesses, transition functions, and conditions for boundedness and continuity. Rather than focusing on probability measures individually, the work explores connections between functions. An elementary grasp of the theory of Markov processes is assumed. Starting with a brief survey of relevant concepts and theorems from measure theory, the text investigates operations that permit an inspection of the class of Markov processes corresponding to a given transition function. It advances to the more complicated operations of generating a subprocess, followed by examinations of the construction of Markov processes with given transition functions, the concept of a strictly "Markov process," and the conditions required for boundedness and continuity of a Markov process. Addenda, notes, references, and indexes supplement the text.

An imaginative introduction to number theory, this unique approach employs a pair of fictional characters, Ant and Gnam. Ant leads Gnam through a variety of theories, and together, they put the theories into action—applying linear diophantine equations to football scoring, using a black-magic device to simplify problems in modular structures, and developing intriguing modifications to the rules of chess. Appropriate for anyone familiar with algebra at the high-school level, The Theory of Remainders offers a captivating introduction to both number theory and abstract algebra. Both elementary and challenging, it provides a view of mathematics as a conceptual net and illustrates the differences between conceptual and paraconceptual claims—an excellent start to expanding students' perspectives on mathematics. Exercises throughout the book form an integral part of the text, extending students' experience with the concepts under discussion and presenting opportunities to observe patterns. In addition to the exercises, a series of optional problems allows more advanced readers to further develop the concepts.
