Designed to help students appreciate the beauty of abstract patterns and the thrill of modeling the "real" world, this versatile, time-tested, and widely used text requires only two years of high school algebra. Suitable for a traditional one-year course in linear algebra or a more streamlined single-semester course, it can also serve for courses in finite mathematics or mathematics in the contemporary world for liberal arts students.
Carefully chosen examples and exercises form the basis of this treatment, in which students solve problems related to biology (nesting habits of birds), sociology (rural-urban migration patterns), transportation (traffic flow), psychology (verifying claims of ESP), business (maximizing profits), and other fields. Topics include matrices, Gauss-Jordan row operations, systems of linear equations without unique solutions, determinants, linear programming, the simplex algorithm, dual problems, probability, and game theory. Each chapter features sample tests with answers.

Radar Detection Theory of Sliding Window Processes (Paperback): Graham Weinberg Radar Detection Theory of Sliding Window Processes (Paperback)
Graham Weinberg
R1,131 Discovery Miles 11 310 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Constant false alarm rate detection processes are important in radar signal processing. Such detection strategies are used as an alternative to optimal Neyman-Pearson based decision rules, since they can be implemented as a sliding window process running on a radar range-Doppler map. This book examines the development of such detectors in a modern framework. With a particular focus on high resolution X-band maritime surveillance radar, recent approaches are outlined and examined. Performance is assessed when the detectors are run in real X-band radar clutter. The book introduces relevant mathematical tools to allow the reader to understand the development, and follow its implementation.

The Psychology of Political Polarization (Hardcover): Jan-Willem van Prooijen The Psychology of Political Polarization (Hardcover)
Jan-Willem van Prooijen
R2,974 Discovery Miles 29 740 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

The Psychology of Political Polarization was inspired by the notion that, to understand the momentum of radical political movements, it is important to understand the attitudes of individual citizens who support such movements. Leading political psychologists have contributed to this important book, in which they share their latest ideas about political polarization - a complex phenomenon that cannot be traced back to a single cause, and that is associated with intolerance, overconfidence, and irrational beliefs. The book explores the basis of political polarization as being how citizens think and feel about people with a different worldview, how they perceive minority groups, and how much they trust leaders and experts on pressing societal issues such as climate change, health, international relations, and poverty. The chapters are organized into two sections that examine what psychological processes and what social factors contribute to polarization among regular citizens. The book also describes practical strategies and interventions to depolarize people. The book offers a state-of-the-art introduction to the psychology of political polarization which will appeal to the academic market and political professionals.

Ivan Stanimirovic
R1,118 Discovery Miles 11 180 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

This volume offers a gradual exposition to matrix theory as a subject of linear algebra. It presents both the theoretical results in generalized matrix inverses and the applications. The book is as self-contained as possible, assuming no prior knowledge of matrix theory and linear algebra. The book first addresses the basic definitions and concepts of an arbitrary generalized matrix inverse with special reference to the calculation of {i,j,...,k} inverse and the Moore-Penrose inverse. Then, the results of LDL* decomposition of the full rank polynomial matrix are introduced, along with numerical examples. Methods for calculating the Moore-Penrose's inverse of rational matrix are presented, which are based on LDL* and QDR decompositions of the matrix. A method for calculating the A(2)T;S inverse using LDL* decomposition using methods is derived as well as the symbolic calculation of A(2)T;S inverses using QDR factorization. The text then offers several ways on how the introduced theoretical concepts can be applied in restoring blurred images and linear regression methods, along with the well-known application in linear systems. The book also explains how the computation of generalized inverses of matrices with constant values is performed. It covers several methods, such as methods based on full-rank factorization, Leverrier-Faddeev method, method of Zhukovski, and variations of the partitioning method.

Based on and enriched by the long-term teaching experience of the authors, this volume covers the major themes of mathematics in engineering and technical specialties. The book addresses the elements of linear algebra and analytic geometry, differential calculus of a function of one variable, and elements of higher algebra. On each theme the authors first present short theoretical overviews and then go on to give problems to be solved. The authors provide the solutions to some typical, relatively difficult problems and guidelines for solving them. The authors consider the development of the self-dependent thinking ability of students in the construction of problems and indicate which problems are relatively difficult. The book is geared so that some of the problems presented can be solved in class, and others are meant to be solved independently. An extensive, explanatory solution of at least one typical problem is included, with emphasis on applications, formulas, and rules. This volume is primarily addressed to advanced students of engineering and technical specialties as well as to engineers/technicians and instructors of mathematics. Key features: Presents the theoretical background necessary for solving problems, including definitions, rules, formulas, and theorems on the particular theme Provides an extended solution of at least one problem on every theme and guidelines for solving some difficult problems Selects problems for independent study as well as those for classroom time, taking into account the similarity of both sets of problems Differentiates relatively difficult problems from others for those who want to study mathematics more deeply Provides answers to the problems within the text rather than at the back of the book, enabling more direct verification of problem solutions Presents a selection of problems and solutions that are very interesting not only for the students but also for professor-teacher staff

Hitoshi Yano
R1,110 Discovery Miles 11 100 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Recently, many books on multiobjective programming have been published. However, only a few books have been published, in which multiobjective programming under the randomness and the fuzziness are investigated. On the other hand, several books on multilevel programming have been published, in which multiple decision makers are involved in hierarchical decision situations. In this book, we introduce the latest advances in the field of multiobjective programming and multilevel programming under uncertainty. The reader can immediately use proposed methods to solve multiobjective programming and multilevel programming, which are based on linear programming or convex programming technique. Organization of each capter is summarized as follows. In Chapter 2, multiobjective programming problems with random variables are formulated, and the corresponding interactive algorithms are developed to obtain a satisfactory solution, in which the fuzziness of human's subjective judgment for permission levels are considered. In Chapter 3, multiobjective programming problems with fuzzy random variables are formulated, and the corresponding interactive algorithms are developed to obtain a satisfactory solution, in which not only the uncertainty of fuzzy random variables but also the fuzziness of human's subjective judgment for permission levels are considered. In Chapter 4, multiobjective multilevel programming is discussed, and the interactive algorithms are developed to obtain a satisfactory solution, in which the hierarchical decision structure of multiple decision makers is reflected. In Chapter 5, two kinds of farm planning problems are solved by applying the proposed method, in which cost coefficients of crops are expressed by random variables.
