This book is a landmark title in the continuous move from integer
to non-integer in mathematics: from integer numbers to real
numbers, from factorials to the gamma function, from integer-order
models to models of an arbitrary order. For historical reasons, the
word 'fractional' is used instead of the word 'arbitrary'.

This book is an exposition of "semi-Riemannian geometry" (also called "pseudo-Riemannian geometry")--the study of a smooth manifold furnished with a metric tensor of arbitrary signature. The principal special cases are Riemannian geometry, where the metric is positive definite, and Lorentz geometry. For many years these two geometries have developed almost independently: Riemannian geometry reformulated in coordinate-free fashion and directed toward global problems, Lorentz geometry in classical tensor notation devoted to general relativity. More recently, this divergence has been reversed as physicists, turning increasingly toward invariant methods, have produced results of compelling mathematical interest.
This English version of the path-breaking French book on this
subject gives the definitive treatment of the revolutionary
approach to measure theory, geometry, and mathematical physics
developed by Alain Connes. Profusely illustrated and invitingly
written, this book is ideal for anyone who wants to know what
noncommutative geometry is, what it can do, or how it can be used
in various areas of mathematics, quantization, and elementary
particles and fields.

Continuum Mechanics is a branch of physical mechanics that describes the macroscopic mechanical behavior of solid or fluid materials considered to be continuously distributed. It is fundamental to the fields of civil, mechanical, chemical and bioengineering. This time-tested text has been used for over 35 years to introduce junior and senior-level undergraduate engineering students, as well as graduate students, to the basic principles of continuum mechanics and their applications to real engineering problems. The text begins with a detailed presentation of the coordinate invariant quantity, the tensor, introduced as a linear transformation. This is then followed by the formulation of the kinematics of deformation, large as well as very small, the description of stresses and the basic laws of continuum mechanics. As applications of these laws, the behaviors of certain material idealizations (models) including the elastic, viscous and viscoelastic materials, are presented.
This new edition offers expanded coverage of the subject matter
both in terms of details and contents, providing greater
flexibility for either a one or two-semester course in either
continuum mechanics or elasticity. Although this current edition
has expanded the coverage of the subject matter, it nevertheless
uses the same approach as that in the earlier editions - that one
can cover advanced topics in an elementary way that go from simple
to complex, using a wealth of illustrative examples and problems.
It is, and will remain, one of the most accessible textbooks on
this challenging engineering subject.
New section at the end of Chapter 4 devoted to the integral formulation of the field equations

Studies in Logic and the Foundations of Mathematics, Volume 102: Set Theory: An Introduction to Independence Proofs offers an introduction to relative consistency proofs in axiomatic set theory, including combinatorics, sets, trees, and forcing.The book first tackles the foundations of set theory and infinitary combinatorics. Discussions focus on the Suslin problem, Martin's axiom, almost disjoint and quasi-disjoint sets, trees, extensionality and comprehension, relations, functions, and well-ordering, ordinals, cardinals, and real numbers. The manuscript then ponders on well-founded sets and easy consistency proofs, including relativization, absoluteness, reflection theorems, properties of well-founded sets, and induction and recursion on well-founded relations. The publication examines constructible sets, forcing, and iterated forcing. Topics include Easton forcing, general iterated forcing, Cohen model, forcing with partial functions of larger cardinality, forcing with finite partial functions, and general extensions. The manuscript is a dependable source of information for mathematicians and researchers interested in set theory.
Complex Numbers lie at the heart of most technical and scientific subjects. This book can be used to teach complex numbers as a course text,a revision or remedial guide, or as a self-teaching work. The author has designed the book to be a flexiblelearning tool, suitable for A-Level students as well as other students in higher and further education whose courses include a substantial maths component (e.g. BTEC or GNVQ science and engineering courses). Verity Carr has accumulated nearly thirty years of experience teaching mathematics at all levels and has a rare gift for making mathematics simple and enjoyable. At Brooklands College, she has taken a leading role in the development of a highly successful Mathematics Workshop. This series of Made Simple Maths books widens her audience but continues to provide the kind of straightforward and logical approach she has developed over her years of teaching.
