Mathematicians

Ato Z of Mathematicians contains the fascinating biographies of 150 mathematicians: men and women from a variety of cultures, time periods, and socioeconomic backgrounds, all of whom have substantially influenced the history of mathematics. Some made numerous discoveries during a lifetime of creative work; others made a single contribution. The great Carl Gauss (1777–1855) developed the statistical method of least squares and discovered countless theorems in algebra, geometry, and analysis.

Mathematicians are just like people: old, young, fat, thin, male, female. This one was male, thirtyfive, with steady brown eyes and a nice smile when he remembered to use it. His name was Norman Venner, and besides being a mathematical whiz generally, he had designed and built an electronic brain, or calculator, which was in some ways smarter than himself—and

A Propos Descartes: René Descartes (March 31, 1596 – February 11, 1650), also known as Renatus Cartesius (latinized form), was a highly influential French philosopher, mathematician, scientist, and writer. Dubbed the "Founder of Modern Philosophy", and the "Father of Modern Mathematics", much of subsequent western philosophy is a reaction to his writings, which have been closely studied from his time down to the present day.

They were in the garden. "Now, Zoe," said Zenia Hawkins to her nineyearold daughter, "quit fluttering around, and papa will tell you a story." Zoe settled down in the hammock. "A true story, papa?" "It all happened exactly like I'm going to tell you," said Drake Hawkins, pinching Zoe's rosy cheek. "Now: two thousand and eleven years ago in 1985, figuring by the earthly calendar of that time, a tribe of beings from the Dogstar Sirius invaded the earth." "And what did these beings look like, father?" "Like humans in many, many respects. They each had two arms, two legs...

Finance is one of the fastest growing areas in the modern banking and corporate world. This, together with the sophistication of modern financial products, provides a rapidly growing impetus for new mathematical models and modern mathematical methods. Indeed, the area is an expanding source for novel and relevant "realworld" mathematics. In this book, the authors describe the modeling of financial derivative products from an applied mathematician's viewpoint, from modeling to analysis to elementary computation.

MATLAB®, developed by The MathWorks, Inc., integrates computation, visualization, and programming in a flexible, open environment. It offers engineers, scientists, and mathematicians an intuitive language for expressing problems and their solutions mathematically and graphically. Complex numeric and symbolic problems can be solved in a fraction of the time required with a programming language such as C, Fortran, or Java.

Mathematics is the science study of the number, structure, and spatial transformations. In other words, it is assumed that subjects' shape and number. "According to the official view, it is the study of the abstract structure defined from the axioms, using Logic (logic) and mathematical symbols. The other point of it is described in mathematical philosophy. Due to their wide applications in many science, mathematics is known as the "universal language". Experts in the field of mathematics known as mathematicians....

This book is aimed at a reader who has studied an introductory book on mathemat ical ﬁnance and an introductory book on C++ but does not know how to put the two together. My objective is to teach the reader not just how to implement models in C++ but more importantly how to think in an objectoriented way. There are already many books on objectoriented programming; however, the examples tend not to feel real to the ﬁnancial mathematician so in this book we work exclusively with examples from derivatives pricing....

The Dictionary of Classical and Theoretical Mathematics, one volume of the Comprehensive Dictionary of Mathematics, includes entries from the fields of geometry, logic, number theory, set theory, and topology. The authors who contributed their work to this volume are professional mathematicians, active in both teaching and research. The goal in writing this dictionary has been to define each term rigorously, not to author a large and comprehensive survey text in mathematics.

Sincemany excellent treatises on the history ofmathemat ics are available, there may seem little reason for writing still another. But most current works are severely techni cal, written by mathematicians for other mathematicians or for historians of science. Despite the admirable schol arship and often clear presentation of these works, they are not especially well adapted to the undergraduate classroom. (Perhaps the most notable exception is Howard Eves’s popular account, An Introduction to the History of Mathematics.

Probability theory began in seventeenth century France when the two great French mathematicians, Blaise Pascal and Pierre de Fermat, corresponded over two problems from games of chance. Problems like those Pascal and Fermat solved continued to influence such early researchers as Huygens, Bernoulli, and DeMoivre in establishing a mathematical theory of probability.

A colleague once asked if I could help him understand the DiffieHellman key exchange protocol . . . without digging through the math. My answer was, “Yes, I can, but not easily.” Doing so requires a few diagrams because, in this particular case, a picture is worth several complex equations! First things first. What is DiffieHellman (DH), and why should you care? DH is a mathematical algorithm that allows two computers to generate an identical shared secret on both systems, even though those systems may never have communicated with each other before.
