Diophantine Approximations by Ivan Niven

By Ivan Niven

This self-contained remedy originated as a chain of lectures dropped at the Mathematical organization of the United States. It covers simple effects on homogeneous approximation of genuine numbers; the analogue for advanced numbers; easy effects for nonhomogeneous approximation within the genuine case; the analogue for complicated numbers; and basic houses of the multiples of an irrational quantity, for either the fractional and indispensable parts.
The writer refrains from using non-stop fractions and comprises easy ends up in the complicated case, a function frequently missed in want of the genuine quantity dialogue. each one bankruptcy concludes with a bibliographic account of heavily comparable paintings; those sections additionally comprise the resources from which the proofs are drawn.

Representations of Groups: A Computational Approach

The illustration thought of finite teams has noticeable fast development in recent times with the advance of effective algorithms and desktop algebra structures. this can be the 1st e-book to supply an creation to the standard and modular illustration thought of finite teams with designated emphasis at the computational elements of the topic.

Groups of Prime Power Order Volume 2 (De Gruyter Expositions in Mathematics)

This is often the second one of 3 volumes dedicated to straightforward finite p-group thought. just like the 1st quantity, countless numbers of vital effects are analyzed and, in lots of instances, simplified. vital issues awarded during this monograph contain: (a) type of p-groups all of whose cyclic subgroups of composite orders are general, (b) type of 2-groups with precisely 3 involutions, (c) proofs of Ward's theorem on quaternion-free teams, (d) 2-groups with small centralizers of an involution, (e) class of 2-groups with precisely 4 cyclic subgroups of order 2n > 2, (f) new proofs of Blackburn's theorem on minimum nonmetacyclic teams, (g) class of p-groups all of whose subgroups of index p² are abelian, (h) type of 2-groups all of whose minimum nonabelian subgroups have order eight, (i) p-groups with cyclic subgroups of index p² are categorized.

Group Representations, Ergodic Theory, and Mathematical Physics: A Tribute to George W. Mackey

George Mackey was once a unprecedented mathematician of significant energy and imaginative and prescient. His profound contributions to illustration idea, harmonic research, ergodic idea, and mathematical physics left a wealthy legacy for researchers that maintains this present day. This ebook relies on lectures provided at an AMS designated consultation held in January 2007 in New Orleans devoted to his reminiscence.
