R1,523 R1,213 Discovery Miles 12 130 Save R310 (20%) Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Elementary Linear Algebra 11th edition gives an elementary treatment of linear algebra that is suitable for a first course for undergraduate students. The aim is to present the fundamentals of linear algebra in the clearest possible way; pedagogy is the main consideration. Calculus is not a prerequisite, but there are clearly labeled exercises and examples (which can be omitted without loss of continuity) for students who have studied calculus.

It's a sad truth that maths has the reputation of being "difficult." Part of the problem is that many of us simply don't speak the language. To a mathematician, an equation is a compact, efficient way to put across a relationship that would be far less comprehensible in words. But to many of us, the merest sign of an x, y, or symbol is an impenetrable mess that our eyes bounce off. This book provides an engaging overview of what maths is and what it can do, without having to solve simultaneous equations or prove geometric theorems, far more of us might get the point of it. It is divided into four chapters, each covering a major developmental route in the topic, from Arithmetic & Numbers to Geometry and from Algebra & Calculus to Applied Mathematics.

An Introduction to Formal Logic (Paperback, 2nd Revised edition): Peter Smith An Introduction to Formal Logic (Paperback, 2nd Revised edition)
Peter Smith
R819 Discovery Miles 8 190 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Formal logic provides us with a powerful set of techniques for criticizing some arguments and showing others to be valid. These techniques are relevant to all of us with an interest in being skilful and accurate reasoners. In this very accessible book, extensively revised and rewritten for the second edition, Peter Smith presents a guide to the fundamental aims and basic elements of formal logic. He introduces the reader to the languages of propositional and predicate logic, and develops natural deduction systems for evaluating arguments translated into these languages. His discussion is richly illustrated with worked examples and exercises, and alongside the formal work there is illuminating philosophical commentary. This book will make an ideal text for a first logic course and will provide a firm basis for further work in formal and philosophical logic.

A Course in Algebraic Error-Correcting Codes (Paperback, 1st ed. 2020): Simeon Ball A Course in Algebraic Error-Correcting Codes (Paperback, 1st ed. 2020)
Simeon Ball
R1,252 Discovery Miles 12 520 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

This textbook provides a rigorous mathematical perspective on error-correcting codes, starting with the basics and progressing through to the state-of-the-art. Algebraic, combinatorial, and geometric approaches to coding theory are adopted with the aim of highlighting how coding can have an important real-world impact. Because it carefully balances both theory and applications, this book will be an indispensable resource for readers seeking a timely treatment of error-correcting codes. Early chapters cover fundamental concepts, introducing Shannon's theorem, asymptotically good codes and linear codes. The book then goes on to cover other types of codes including chapters on cyclic codes, maximum distance separable codes, LDPC codes, p-adic codes, amongst others. Those undertaking independent study will appreciate the helpful exercises with selected solutions. A Course in Algebraic Error-Correcting Codes suits an interdisciplinary audience at the Masters level, including students of mathematics, engineering, physics, and computer science. Advanced undergraduates will find this a useful resource as well. An understanding of linear algebra is assumed.

This balanced and comprehensive study presents the theory, methods and applications of matrix analysis in a new theoretical framework, allowing readers to understand second-order and higher-order matrix analysis in a completely new light. Alongside the core subjects in matrix analysis, such as singular value analysis, the solution of matrix equations and eigenanalysis, the author introduces new applications and perspectives that are unique to this book. The very topical subjects of gradient analysis and optimization play a central role here. Also included are subspace analysis, projection analysis and tensor analysis, subjects which are often neglected in other books. Having provided a solid foundation to the subject, the author goes on to place particular emphasis on the many applications matrix analysis has in science and engineering, making this book suitable for scientists, engineers and graduate students alike.
