This textbook offers a high-level introduction to multi-variable differential calculus. Differential forms are introduced incrementally in the narrative, eventually leading to a unified treatment of Green’s, Stokes’ and Gauss’ theorems. Furthermore, the presentation offers a natural route to differential geometry. Contents: Calculus of Vector Functions Tangent Spaces and 1-forms Line Integrals Differential Calculus of Mappings Applications of Differential Calculus Double and Triple Integrals Wedge Products and Exterior Derivatives Integration of Forms Stokes’ Theorem and Applications

This text is a modern in-depth study of the subject that includes all the material needed from linear algebra. It then goes on to investigate topics in differential geometry, such as manifolds in Euclidean space, curvature, and the generalization of the fundamental theorem of calculus known as Stokes' theorem.

Groups and Manifolds is an introductory, yet a complete self-contained course on mathematics of symmetry: group theory and differential geometry of symmetric spaces, with a variety of examples for physicists, touching briefly also on super-symmetric field theories. The core of the course is focused on the construction of simple Lie algebras, emphasizing the double interpretation of the ADE classification as applied to finite rotation groups and to simply laced simple Lie algebras. Unique features of this book are the full-fledged treatment of the exceptional Lie algebras and a rich collection of MATHEMATICA Notebooks implementing various group theoretical constructions.

A Differential Forms Approach

In a book written for mathematicians, teachers of mathematics, and highly motivated students, Harold Edwards has taken a bold and unusual approach to the presentation of advanced calculus. He begins with a lucid discussion of differential forms and quickly moves to the fundamental theorems of calculus and Stokes’ theorem. The result is genuine mathematics, both in spirit and content, and an exciting choice for an honors or graduate course or indeed for any mathematician in need of a refreshingly informal and flexible reintroduction to the subject. For all these potential readers, the author has made the approach work in the best tradition of creative mathematics. This affordable softcover reprint of the 1994 edition presents the diverse set of topics from which advanced calculus courses are created in beautiful unifying generalization. The author emphasizes the use of differential forms in linear algebra, implicit differentiation in higher dimensions using the calculus of differential forms, and the method of Lagrange multipliers in a general but easy-to-use formulation. There are copious exercises to help guide the reader in testing understanding. The chapters can be read in almost any order, including beginning with the final chapter that contains some of the more traditional topics of advanced calculus courses. In addition, it is ideal for a course on vector analysis from the differential forms point of view. The professional mathematician will find here a delightful example of mathematical literature; the student fortunate enough to have gone through this book will have a firm grasp of the nature of modern mathematics and a solid framework to continue to more advanced studies. The most important feature...is that it is fun—it is fun to read the exercises, it is fun to read the comments printed in the margins, it is fun simply to pick a random spot in the book and begin reading. This is the way mathematics should be presented, with an excitement and liveliness that show why we are interested in the subject. —The American Mathematical Monthly (First Review) An inviting, unusual, high-level introduction to vector calculus, based solidly on differential forms. Superb exposition: informal but sophisticated, down-to-earth but general, geometrically rigorous, entertaining but serious. Remarkable diverse applications, physical and mathematical. —The American Mathematical Monthly (1994) Based on the Second Edition

This is the second volume of "A Course in Analysis" and it is devoted to the study of mappings between subsets of Euclidean spaces. The metric, hence the topological structure is discussed as well as the continuity of mappings. This is followed by introducing partial derivatives of real-valued functions and the differential of mappings. Many chapters deal with applications, in particular to geometry (parametric curves and surfaces, convexity), but topics such as extreme values and Lagrange multipliers, or curvilinear coordinates are considered too. On the more abstract side results such as the Stone–Weierstrass theorem or the Arzela–Ascoli theorem are proved in detail. The first part ends with a rigorous treatment of line integrals. The second part handles iterated and volume integrals for real-valued functions. Here we develop the Riemann (–Darboux–Jordan) theory. A whole chapter is devoted to boundaries and Jordan measurability of domains. We also handle in detail improper integrals and give some of their applications. The final part of this volume takes up a first discussion of vector calculus. Here we present a working mathematician's version of Green's, Gauss' and Stokes' theorem. Again some emphasis is given to applications, for example to the study of partial differential equations. At the same time we prepare the student to understand why these theorems and related objects such as surface integrals demand a much more advanced theory which we will develop in later volumes. This volume offers more than 260 problems solved in complete detail which should be of great benefit to every serious student.

This book deals with the reliable verification of the accuracy of approximate solutions which is one of the central problems in modern applied analysis. After giving an overview of the methods developed for models based on partial differential equations, the author derives computable a posteriori error estimates by using methods of the theory of partial differential equations and functional analysis. These estimates are applicable to approximate solutions computed by various methods.

An Introduction to Metric Spaces, Hilbert Spaces, and Banach Algebras

Publisher: Springer

ISBN: 3319067281

This textbook is an introduction to functional analysis suited to final year undergraduates or beginning graduates. Its various applications of Hilbert spaces, including least squares approximation, inverse problems, and Tikhonov regularization, should appeal not only to mathematicians interested in applications, but also to researchers in related fields. Functional Analysis adopts a self-contained approach to Banach spaces and operator theory that covers the main topics, based upon the classical sequence and function spaces and their operators. It assumes only a minimum of knowledge in elementary linear algebra and real analysis; the latter is redone in the light of metric spaces. It contains more than a thousand worked examples and exercises, which make up the main body of the book.

Part 1 begins with an overview of properties of the real numbers and starts to introduce the notions of set theory. The absolute value and in particular inequalities are considered in great detail before functions and their basic properties are handled. From this the authors move to differential and integral calculus. Many examples are discussed. Proofs not depending on a deeper understanding of the completeness of the real numbers are provided. As a typical calculus module, this part is thought as an interface from school to university analysis. Part 2 returns to the structure of the real numbers, most of all to the problem of their completeness which is discussed in great depth. Once the completeness of the real line is settled the authors revisit the main results of Part 1 and provide complete proofs. Moreover they develop differential and integral calculus on a rigorous basis much further by discussing uniform convergence and the interchanging of limits, infinite series (including Taylor series) and infinite products, improper integrals and the gamma function. In addition they discussed in more detail as usual monotone and convex functions. Finally, the authors supply a number of Appendices, among them Appendices on basic mathematical logic, more on set theory, the Peano axioms and mathematical induction, and on further discussions of the completeness of the real numbers. Remarkably, Volume I contains ca. 360 problems with complete, detailed solutions.
