Engineering Mathematics Through Applications (Paperback, 2nd ed. 2011): Kuldeep Singh Engineering Mathematics Through Applications (Paperback, 2nd ed. 2011)
Kuldeep Singh
R1,343 R1,236 Discovery Miles 12 360 Save R107 (8%) Ships in 10 - 15 working days

This popular, world-wide selling textbook teaches engineering mathematics in a step-by-step fashion and uniquely through engineering examples and exercises which apply the techniques right from their introduction. This contextual use of mathematics is highly motivating, as with every topic and each new page students see the importance and relevance of mathematics in engineering. The examples are taken from mechanics, aerodynamics, electronics, engineering, fluid dynamics and other areas. While being general and accessible for all students, they also highlight how mathematics works in any individual's engineering discipline. The material is often praised for its careful pace, and the author pauses to ask questions to keep students reflecting. Proof of mathematical results is kept to a minimum. Instead the book develops learning by investigating results, observing patterns, visualizing graphs and answering questions using technology. This textbook is ideal for first year undergraduates and those on pre-degree courses in Engineering (all disciplines) and Science.

R762 Discovery Miles 7 620 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Intractability is a growing concern across the cognitive sciences: while many models of cognition can describe and predict human behavior in the lab, it remains unclear how these models can scale to situations of real-world complexity. Cognition and Intractability is the first book to provide an accessible introduction to computational complexity analysis and its application to questions of intractability in cognitive science. Covering both classical and parameterized complexity analysis, it introduces the mathematical concepts and proof techniques that can be used to test one's intuition of (in)tractability. It also describes how these tools can be applied to cognitive modeling to deal with intractability, and its ramifications, in a systematic way. Aimed at students and researchers in philosophy, cognitive neuroscience, psychology, artificial intelligence, and linguistics who want to build a firm understanding of intractability and its implications in their modeling work, it is an ideal resource for teaching or self-study.

A Student's Guide to Infinite Series and Sequences (Paperback): Bernhard W. Bach, Jr. A Student's Guide to Infinite Series and Sequences (Paperback)
Bernhard W. Bach, Jr.
R475 Discovery Miles 4 750 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Why study infinite series? Not all mathematical problems can be solved exactly or have a solution that can be expressed in terms of a known function. In such cases, it is common practice to use an infinite series expansion to approximate or represent a solution. This informal introduction for undergraduate students explores the numerous uses of infinite series and sequences in engineering and the physical sciences. The material has been carefully selected to help the reader develop the techniques needed to confidently utilize infinite series. The book begins with infinite series and sequences before moving onto power series, complex infinite series and finally onto Fourier, Legendre, and Fourier-Bessel series. With a focus on practical applications, the book demonstrates that infinite series are more than an academic exercise and helps students to conceptualize the theory with real world examples and to build their skill set in this area.

Introduction to Statistical Methods in Modern Genetics (Hardcover): M.C. Yang Introduction to Statistical Methods in Modern Genetics (Hardcover)
M.C. Yang
R2,652 Discovery Miles 26 520 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Although the basic statistical theory behind modern genetics is not very difficult, most statistical genetics papers are not easy to read for beginners in the field, and formulae quickly become very tedious to fit a particular area of application.
Introduction to Statistical Methods in Modern Genetics distinguishes between the necessary and unnecessary complexity in a presentation designed for graduate-level statistics students. The author keeps derivations simple, but does so without losing the mathematical details. He also provides the required background in modern genetics for those looking forward to entering this arena. Along with some of the statistical tools important in genetics applications, students will learn:
How a gene is found
How scientists have separated the genetic and environmental aspects of a person's intelligence
How genetics are used in agriculture to improve crops and domestic animals
What a DNA fingerprint is and why there are controversies about it
Although the author assumes students have a foundation in basic statistics, an appendix provides the necessary background beyond the elementary, including multinomial distributions, inference on frequency tables, and discriminant analysis. With clear explanations, a multitude of figures, and exercise sets in each chapter, this text forms an outstanding entr?e into the rapidly expanding world of genetic data analysis.

Easy Mathematics for Biologists (Paperback): Peter C. Foster Easy Mathematics for Biologists (Paperback)

R948 Discovery Miles 9 480 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Because elementary mathematics is vital to be able to properly design biological experiments and interpret their results. As a student of the life sciences you will only make your life harder by ignoring mathematics entirely. Equally, you do not want to spend your time struggling with complex mathematics that you will never use. This book is the perfect answer to your problems. Inside, it explains the necessary mathematics in easy-to-follow steps, introducing the basics and showing you how to apply these to biological situations.
Easy Mathematics for Biologists covers the basic mathematical ideas of fractions, decimals and percentages, through ratio and proportion, exponents and logarithms, to straight line graphs, graphs that are not straight lines, and their transformation. Direct application of each of these leads to a clear understanding of biological calculations such as those involving concentrations and dilutions, changing units, pH, and linear and non-linear rates of reaction. Each chapter contains worked examples, and is followed by numerous problems, both pure and applied, that can be worked through in your own time. Answers to these can be found at the back.

Fractals in Rock Mechanics (Hardcover): Heping Xie Fractals in Rock Mechanics (Hardcover)
Heping Xie
R4,791 Discovery Miles 47 910 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Important developments in the progress of the theory of rock mechanics during recent years are based on fractals and damage mechanics. The concept of fractals has proved to be a useful way of describing the statistics of naturally occurring geometrics. Natural objects, from mountains and coastlines to clouds and forests, are found to have boundaries best described as fractals. Fluid flow through jointed rock masses and clusterings of earthquakes are found to follow fractal patterns in time and space. Fracturing in rocks at all scales, from the microscale (microcracks) to the continental scale (megafaults), can lead to fractal structures. The process of diagenesis and pore geometry of sedimentary rock can be quantitatively described by fractals, etc. The book is mainly concerned with these developments, as related to fractal descriptions of fragmentations, damage and fracture of rocks, rock burst, joint roughness, rock porosity and permeability, rock grain growth, rock and soil particles, shear slips, fluid flow through jointed rocks, faults, earthquake clustering, and so on. The prime concerns of the book are to give a simple account of the basic concepts, methods of fractal geometry, and their applications to rock mechanics, geology, and seismology, and also to discuss damage mechanics of rocks and its application to mining engineering. The book can be used as a textbook for graduate students, by university teachers to prepare courses and seminars, and by active scientists who want to become familiar with a fascinating new field.
