## Calculus of Variations

*Mechanics, Control and Other Applications*

**Author**: Charles R. MacCluer**Publisher:**Courier Corporation**ISBN:**0486498379**Category:**Mathematics**Page:**254**View:**634

The first truly up-to-date treatment of the calculus of variations, this text is also the first to offer a simple introduction to such key concepts as optimal control and linear-quadratic control design. Suitable for junior/senior–level students of math, science, and engineering, this volume also serves as a useful reference for engineers, chemists, and forest/environmental managers. Its broad perspective features numerous exercises, hints, outlines, and comments, plus several appendixes, including a practical discussion of MATLAB. Students will appreciate the text's reader-friendly style, which features gradual advancements in difficulty and starts by developing technique rather than focusing on technical details. The examples and exercises offer many citations of engineering-based applications, and the exercises range from elementary to graduate-level projects, including longer projects and those related to classic papers.

## An Introduction to Algebraic Structures

**Author**: Joseph Landin**Publisher:**Courier Corporation**ISBN:**9780486659404**Category:**Mathematics**Page:**247**View:**5380

As the author notes in the preface, "The purpose of this book is to acquaint a broad spectrum of students with what is today known as 'abstract algebra.'" Written for a one-semester course, this self-contained text includes numerous examples designed to base the definitions and theorems on experience, to illustrate the theory with concrete examples in familiar contexts, and to give the student extensive computational practice.The first three chapters progress in a relatively leisurely fashion and include abundant detail to make them as comprehensible as possible. Chapter One provides a short course in sets and numbers for students lacking those prerequisites, rendering the book largely self-contained. While Chapters Four and Five are more challenging, they are well within the reach of the serious student.The exercises have been carefully chosen for maximum usefulness. Some are formal and manipulative, illustrating the theory and helping to develop computational skills. Others constitute an integral part of the theory, by asking the student to supply proofs or parts of proofs omitted from the text. Still others stretch mathematical imaginations by calling for both conjectures and proofs.Taken together, text and exercises comprise an excellent introduction to the power and elegance of abstract algebra. Now available in this inexpensive edition, the book is accessible to a wide range of students, who will find it an exceptionally valuable resource. Unabridged, corrected Dover (1989) republication of the edition published by Allyn and Bacon, Boston, 1969.
