3-0 out of 5 stars An overview to the subject material
This book attempts to cover A LOT of ground in 60 pages. I really fault the publishers for not allowing him to write and elaborate more on the subjects. It contains the absolute essentisls of understanding how mathematic notation and methods of measuring came about. The additional explanatory material is very consise and little erratic because of space requirements. Personally, the most useful thing I found in it wre the tables of measurements (such as cubits, palms, digits, etc.) and how they approximate to the modern metric system. I also found it to be a good primer for more thorough books such "The Exact Sciences in Antiquity" or "Science Awakening". ... Read more

Book Description

*******Text is available as of 5/21/2004!********

Dunn's Measurement and Data Analysis for Engineering & Science places emphasis on the process of experimentation, rather than the products of experimentation. Dunn’s objective is to expose undergraduates and experimentalists to the essential tools of experimentation, to the scientific detail behind these tools, and to the role of experimentation in the scientific process. Guided by worked examples, MATLAB sidebars, and laboratory exercises, the reader builds a strong working knowledge while moving progressively through the text.

The first three chapters of the text cover the basics--experimental methods, units & significant figures, technical communications and basic electronics. Hardware issues are then presented, with a focus on measurement systems, and calibration & response.The final chapters deal with data analysis, with an overview of basic probability & statistics, uncertainty analysis, signal characteristics, and digital signal analysis.Following the text chapters, a full laboratory manual, with an introduction and twelve lab experiments, is included. This gives users a chance to put their basic skills to work in actual engineering experiments, which are taken from a variety of engineering subject areas.

Throughout the book computer techniques are discussed, and specific MATLAB applications are included, for problem modeling, exploration and solution. MATLAB "sidebars" are used to present MATLAB, and associated M-files are provided on the Web site. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Something every technical profeesional should have
An incredibly easy book to read. I found I could go from section to section and extract the knowledge that needed at that time. Sometimes I just pick it up and open it at random and I often get something new out of it. After being exposed to this book you can see how dimensional analysis is something that most of us should be capable of applying to those problems that lend themselves to no other approach. The only reason I gave it 4 and not 5 was because I would have liked to see more financial examples and I don't think amperes should be considered a fundamental unit. One of the best technical books I have bought. ... Read more

Book Description

This book has evolved from lectures and seminars given by the author at different academic institutions during the years 1983--1998. It can be divided into four parts.Noncommutative measure theory is the theme of the first part of the book. The relevant quantum structures are algebraically introduced. This is then used in the axiomatic, geometric model discussed in the second part of the book, where old and partly new groups and finite-dimensional , , -spaces or spheres are studied for particle-series, a bag and the four basic interactions of physics. The third part investigates infinite dimensional spaces, particularly Archimedean and non-Archimedean orthomodular spaces, which generalize classical Hilbert spaces. The last part of the book contains short reviews on related topics which are useful to have at hand.Audience: This volume will be of interest to graduate students and researchers whose work involves mathematics of physics relativity and gravitation, order, lattices, and algebraic structures. ...

Book Description

The combination of fractal geometry and stochastic methods can be used to create convincing models in many different areas of science such as biology, chemistry, computer science, mathematics and physics. The present book deals with the mathematical theory needed for this purpose. It contains contributions by outstanding mathematicians and is meant to highlight the principal directions of research in the field. The contributors were the main speakers at the conference Fractal Geometry and Stochastics II held at Greifswald/Koserow, Germany, in August 1998.

The book is addressed to mathematicians and scientists who are interested in any of the following topics:

Fractal dimensions
Fractal measures and multifractals
Self-similar and self-affine fractals
Random fractals
Stable processes
Ergodic theory and dynamical systems
Harmonic analysis and stochastic processes on fractals

The readers will be introduced to the most recent results and problems on these subjects and also be treated to an overview of their historical development. Both researchers and graduate students will benefit from the clear expositions.

5-0 out of 5 stars Pictures and math.
This is a very nice collection of papers: tutorials, and well written research presented to a wide audience. They cover stochastic aspects, geometry, analysis, iterated function systems, algorithms, to mention just a few. And they are written by authorities in the field. Fractals make headlines from time to time[--are they everywhere?], and and they make lovely color pictures; but they are also part of a substantial mathematical theory, one with an exciting mathematical history. This very important book presents the subject in a way that it can be taught to students. Or it can be used for selfstudy! In view of the many applications to geometric analysis, to PDE, and to statistics, it is likely that fractal geometry will soon be a standard math course taught in many (more) math departments. A recent example of this: By now it is widely recognized that the selfsimilarity aspects of the wavelet algorithms are key to their sucess. The authors have produced an attractive book on fractals. There are others, for example one by Falconer from 1985[The geometry of fractal sets] with a slightly more potential theoretic bent. ... Read more

Book Description

Similiarity and Dimensional Methods in Mechanics, 10th Edition is an English language translation of this classic volume examining the general theory of dimensions of physical quantities, the theory of mechanical and physical similarity, and the theory of modeling. Several examples illustrate the use of the theories of similarity and dimensions for establishing fundamental mechanical regularities in aviation, explosions, and astrophysics, as well as in the hydrodynamics of ships. Other interesting areas covered include the general theory of automodel motions of continuum media, the theory of propagation of explosion waves in gases, the theory of one-dimensional nonestablished motion in gases, the fundamentals of the gas-dynamics theory of atom-bomb explosion in the atmosphere and the theory of averaging of gaseous flows in channels. Aspects of modeling include the dimensionless characteristics of compressor operation, the theories of engine thrust, and efficiency of an ideal propeller for subsonic and supersonic speeds. Similiarity and Dimensional Methods in Mechanics, 10th Edition is an ideal volume for researchers and students involved in physics and mechanics. ... Read more

Book Description

The Hindu–Arabic numeral system (1, 2, 3,...) is one of mankind’s greatest achievements and one of its most commonly used inventions. How did it originate? Those who have written about the numeral system have hypothesized that it originated in India; however, there is little evidence to support this claim.

This book provides considerable evidence to show that the Hindu–Arabic numeral system, despite its commonly accepted name, has its origins in the Chinese rod numeral system. This system was widely used in China from antiquity till the 16th century. It was used by officials, astronomers, traders and others to perform addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and other arithmetic operations, and also used by mathematicians to develop arithmetic and algebra. Based on this system, numerous mathematical treatises were written.

Sun Zi suanjing (The Mathematical Classic of Sun Zi), written around 400 AD, is the earliest existing work to have a description of the rod numerals and their operations. With this treatise as a central reference, the first part of the book discusses the development of arithmetic and the beginnings of algebra in ancient China and, on the basis of this knowledge, advances the thesis that the Hindu–Arabic numeral system has its origins in the rod numeral system.Part Two gives a complete translation of Sun Zi suanjing.

In this revised edition, Lam Lay Yong has included an edited text of her plenary lecture entitled "Ancient Chinese Mathematics and Its Influence on World Mathematics", which was delivered at the International Congress of Mathematicians, Beijing 2002, after she received the prestigious Kenneth O. May Medal conferred by the International Commission on the History of Mathematics. This should serve as a useful and easy-to-comprehend introduction to the book. ... Read more

Book Description

This book gives a straightforward introduction to the field, as it is nowadays required in many branches of analysis and especially in probability theory. The first three chapters (Measure Theory, Integration Theory, Product Measures) basically follow the clear and approved exposition given in the author’s earlier book on "Probability Theory and Measure Theory". Special emphasis is laid on a complete discussion of the transformation of measures and integration with respect to the product measure, convergence theorems, parameter depending integrals, as well as the Radon-Nikodym theorem.

The final chapter, essentially new and written in a clear and concise style, deals with the theory of Radon measures on Polish or locally compact spaces. With the main results being Luzin’s theorem, the Riesz representation theorem, the Portmanteau theorem, and a characterization of locally compact spaces which are Polish, this chapter is a true invitation to study topological measure theory.

The text addresses graduate students, who wish to learn the fundamentals in measure and integration theory as needed in modern analysis and probability theory. It will also be an important source for anyone teaching such a course. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Nothing dry in this history!
NB this review refers to the 1988 reprint of the 1974 edition. So you thought Jack and Jill were just a couple of clumsy kids trying to get some water from the well? Think again - the familiar nursey rhyme is a piece of political satire from the time of Charles 1. Klein's book is full of similar snippets that will serve you in good stead at a dinner party! "Science of Measurement" is an excellent coverage of the SI units - although even this reprint is missing the major redefinition of the metre in 1983. Use this book as a history, and as a guide to the physics behind measurements, but for the most up-to-date definitions of the units you'll want to check a more recent publication. ... Read more

If you are into measurement errors, you will find this book excellent value. The author goes into a lot of detail spelling everything out. The organisation and English is a bit difficult.

4-0 out of 5 stars This pook totally helps!
Being a mathophobe, I was terrified when I registered for the class. But since I had to buy this book for my math class, then math all of a sudden was really easy! I actually understood the WORD problems with ease and what not!! The only thing that keeps me from giving it a 5 star rating is that there are many typos in the book, especially in chapter 6.2: there are at least three typos in this specific area if and when you are assigned the odd problems; and what's more, if you want a good laugh, check out pages 455-456. You'll see what I mean!

5-0 out of 5 stars Buy this book now!
I am a 34 year old student that has struggled with math my entire life. I have failed many math classes in college because I just did not clearly understand how to do the math problems. I enrolled at Harbor College in Willmington, CA this fall 2003 and purchased this required book. To my amazement, this book is written in a way that a dummie like me can easily learn all the lessons. I now have a class grade of 95 and FINALLY because of this book, I can do algebra word problems, and I understand how to check them. I am even tutoring some of my classmates, WOW! thats not too bad for a dummie! I thank the author for creating the best prealgebra book I have ever seen. It is written STEP-BY-STEP and in the most basic format that can be explained. Please only purchase this book. You will not be dissapointed and you will pass prealgebra. All thanks to K. Elayn Martin-Gay, what a job you did putting the book together!

This workbook is packed with a lot of examples and rich exercises; which are presented in incremental development fashion.

They are able to go thru most of these execises in one summer. I must admit the quality of the lessons and exercises have this quite enjoyable and intuitive for my children to absorb.
