A Mathematical Introduction to Fluid Mechanics (3rd Edition) by Alexandre J. Chorin, Jerrold E. Marsden

By Alexandre J. Chorin, Jerrold E. Marsden

The aim of this article is to offer many of the uncomplicated principles of fluid mechanics in a mathematically appealing demeanour, to offer the actual heritage and motivation for a few structures which have been utilized in contemporary mathematical and numerical paintings at the Navier-Stokes equations and on hyperbolic structures and to curiosity a few of the scholars during this appealing and tough topic. The 3rd version has integrated a couple of updates and revisions, however the spirit and scope of the unique e-book are unaltered.

The Mathematics of Harmony: From Euclid to Contemporary Mathematics and Computer Science (Series on Knots and Everything 22)

This quantity is as a result of the the author's 4 many years of analysis within the box of Fibonacci numbers and the Golden part and their functions. It presents a huge creation to the attention-grabbing and lovely topic of the "Mathematics of Harmony," a brand new interdisciplinary course of recent technological know-how.

Use of monetary units usually implies performing a costbenefit analysis (Morgan and Henrion, 1990). If a comparative analysis between decision options is needed, and actual cost is relatively unimportant or is considered difficult to specify for some factors, then utility can potentially be specified instead using, for example, multi-attribute utility theory (MAUT) (Keeney and Raiffa, 1993), Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP) (Saaty, 1980), and outranking methods (Rogers and Bruen, 1998). However, if, in any of these 1 Basic Steps for the Development of Decision Support Systems 17 approaches, a single attribute is specified in monetary terms, then, in a complete model, the value of all other attributes could be translated into monetary value.

Under the full Bayesian paradigm, decision analysis is performed by maximizing expected utility, and updating of information is performed using Bayes’ Theorem. Probability networks are extended with multi-criteria decision-making models to achieve a complete quantitative Bayesian decision support system. Other metrics for addressing uncertainty or decision analysis are possible, including fuzzy logic, random sets, and belief functions; however, as mentioned earlier, none of these metrics satisfy the coherence axioms of Bayesian decision analysis (Black, 1996a).
