Suitable for advanced undergraduates and graduate students, this text introduces the broad scope of convexity. It leads students to open questions and unsolved problems, and it highlights diverse applications. Author Steven R. Lay, Professor of Mathematics at Lee University in Tennessee, reinforces his teachings with numerous examples, plus exercises with hints and answers. The first three chapters form the foundation for all that follows, starting with a review of the fundamentals of linear algebra and topology. They also survey the development and applications of relationships between hyperplanes and convex sets. Subsequent chapters are relatively self-contained, each focusing on a particular aspect or application of convex sets. Topics include characterizations of convex sets, polytopes, duality, optimization, and convex functions. Hints, solutions, and references for the exercises appear at the back of the book.

Aufgrund vielfältiger Anwendungsmöglichkeiten wächst die Nachfrage nach zerstörungsfreien Prüfmethoden für hyperelastische Werkstoffe stark. Ein vielversprechendes Verfahren für den In-situ-Einsatz ist die Applikation eines Netzwerks von Piezosensoren und -aktuatoren. In dieser Arbeit wird als einfaches Modell eines Piezosensors ein Sensor angenommen, der gemittelte, gewichtete mechanische Spannungen an der Oberfläche misst. Ausgehend von diesem Szenario kann die kritische Frage, ob den Messungen solcher Sensoren eindeutig und stabil mechanische Eigenschaften des Körpers über die Identifikation der Verzerrungsenergiedichte zugeordnet werden können, dahingehend positiv beantwortet werden, als dass tatsächlich bei zulässigen Anfangszuständen und bei Darstellbarkeit der Verzerrungsenergiedichte als konische Kombination, die Abbildung des Quadrupels aus der Messung, den beiden Anfangswerten und der Massenkraftdichte auf die Verzerrungsenergiedichte stetig ist. Es wird gezeigt, dass kleine Fehler in den Messdaten oder leichte Abweichungen in den weiteren Ausgangsdaten des angesprochenen Quadrupels nur zu kleinen Änderungen der dadurch festgelegten mechanischen Eigenschaften führen. Dieses Charakteristikum ist eine unabdingbare Basisanforderung an jedes zuverlässig arbeitende System zur Schadenslokalisierung. Diese Aussagen werden im Wesentlichen in zwei Schritten erreicht: Zunächst erfolgt eine intensive Untersuchung des parameterabhängigen Vorwärtsproblems, welches sich als Anfangsrandwertproblem eines nichtlinearen partiellen Differentialgleichungssystems darstellt. Anschließend wird das inverse Problem der Parameteridentifizierung formuliert und analysiert.

Mathematical Imaging is currently a rapidly growing field inapplied mathematics, with an increasing need for theoreticalmathematics. This book, the second of two volumes, emphasizes the role ofmathematics as a rigorous basis for imaging sciences. It provides acomprehensive and convenient overview of the key mathematicalconcepts, notions, tools and frameworks involved in the variousfields of gray-tone and binary image processing and analysis, byproposing a large, but coherent, set of symbols and notations, acomplete list of subjects and a detailed bibliography. Itestablishes a bridge between the pure and applied mathematicaldisciplines, and the processing and analysis of gray-tone andbinary images. It is accessible to readers who have neitherextensive mathematical training, nor peer knowledge in ImageProcessing and Analysis. It is a self-contained book focusing on the mathematicalnotions, concepts, operations, structures, and frameworks that arebeyond or involved in Image Processing and Analysis. The notationsare simplified as far as possible in order to be more explicativeand consistent throughout the book and the mathematical aspects aresystematically discussed in the image processing and analysiscontext, through practical examples or concrete illustrations.Conversely, the discussed applicative issues allow the role ofmathematics to be highlighted. Written for a broad audience – students, mathematicians,image processing and analysis specialists, as well as otherscientists and practitioners – the author hopes that readerswill find their own way of using the book, thus providing amathematical companion that can help mathematicians become morefamiliar with image processing and analysis, and likewise, imageprocessing and image analysis scientists, researchers and engineersgain a deeper understanding of mathematical notions andconcepts.

Like differentiability, convexity is a natural and powerful property of functions that plays a significant role in many areas of mathematics, both pure and applied. It ties together notions from topology, algebra, geometry and analysis, and is an important tool in optimization, mathematical programming and game theory. This book, which is the product of a collaboration of over 15 years, is unique in that it focuses on convex functions themselves, rather than on convex analysis. The authors explore the various classes and their characteristics and applications, treating convex functions in both Euclidean and Banach spaces. The book can either be read sequentially for a graduate course, or dipped into by researchers and practitioners. Each chapter contains a variety of specific examples, and over 600 exercises are included, ranging in difficulty from early graduate to research level.

This text for advanced undergraduates and graduate students examines problems concerning convex sets in real Euclidean spaces of two or three dimensions. It illustrates the different ways in which convexity can enter into the formulation as the solution to different problems in these spaces. Problems in Euclidean Space features four chapters that develop an increasingly dominant influence of convexity. In the first chapter, convexity plays a minor role; the second chapter considers problems originally stated in a wider context that can be reduced to problems concerning convex sets. In the third chapter, the problems are defined strictly for convex sets and not for more general sets, and the final chapter discusses properties of subclasses of the class of convex sets.

This book arose out of the authors' desire to present Lebesgue integration and Fourier series on an undergraduate level, since most undergraduate texts do not cover this material or do so in a cursory way. The result is a clear, concise, well-organized introduction to such topics as the Riemann integral, measurable sets, properties of measurable sets, measurable functions, the Lebesgue integral, convergence and the Lebesgue integral, pointwise convergence of Fourier series and other subjects. The authors not only cover these topics in a useful and thorough way, they have taken pains to motivate the student by keeping the goals of the theory always in sight, justifying each step of the development in terms of those goals. In addition, whenever possible, new concepts are related to concepts already in the student's repertoire. Finally, to enable readers to test their grasp of the material, the text is supplemented by numerous examples and exercises. Mathematics students as well as students of engineering and science will find here a superb treatment, carefully thought out and well presented , that is ideal for a one semester course. The only prerequisite is a basic knowledge of advanced calculus, including the notions of compactness, continuity, uniform convergence and Riemann integration.

The development of complex analysis is based on issues related to holomorphic continuation and holomorphic approximation. This volume presents a unified view of these topics in finite and infinite dimensions. A high-level tutorial in pure and applied mathematics, its prerequisites include a familiarity with the basic properties of holomorphic functions, the principles of Banach and Hilbert spaces, and the theory of Lebesgue integration. The four-part treatment begins with an overview of the basic properties of holomorphic mappings and holomorphic domains in Banach spaces. The second section explores differentiable mappings, differentiable forms, and polynomially convex compact sets, in which the results are applied to the study of Banach and Fréchet algebras. Subsequent sections examine plurisubharmonic functions and pseudoconvex domains in Banach spaces, along with Riemann domains and envelopes of holomorphy. In addition to its value as a text for advanced graduate students of mathematics, this volume also functions as a reference for researchers and professionals.
