Mathematics for Financial Analysis focuses on the application of mathematics in financial analysis, including applications of differentiation, logarithmic functions, and compounding. The publication first ponders on equations and graphs, vectors and matrices, and linear programming. Discussions focus on duality and minimization problems, systems of linear inequalities, linear programs, matrix inversion, properties of matrices and vectors, vector products, equations and graphs, higher dimensional spaces, distance in the plane, coordinate geometry, and inequalities and absolute value. The text then examines differential calculus, applications of differentiation, and antidifferentiation and definite integration. Topics include fundamental theorem of calculus, definite integral, profit optimization in a monopoly, revenue from taxation, curve sketching, concavity and points of inflection, and rules for differentiation. The book examines the applications of integration and differentiation and integration of exponential and logarithmic functions, including exponential and logarithmic functions, differentiation and integration of logarithmic functions, and continuous compounding. The publication is a valuable source of data for researchers interested in the application of mathematics in financial analysis.

Selected Readings in Quantitative Urban Analysis focuses on the use of quantitative approaches in analyzing urban problems. The areas discussed are overall urban models; urban models dealing with the basic economic factors of urban life (workers and jobs, housing, and transportation); urban models dealing with the provision of basic services (education, health care, fire, police, water, and sanitation); urban models dealing with the provision of the luxuries of urban life (theater, ballet, symphony); urban models dealing with how the decisions to provide these factors are made (policy formulation and the resolution of conflicting priorities). This book is comprised of 11 chapters and begins with an outline of the major areas of urban life, analyzed in a quantitative manner. Urban modeling is then introduced, and problems and pitfalls in urban model building are considered. The next section looks at the economic base of urban life, with emphasis on labor markets and labor force; urban housing markets and housing policy; and policy and policy models in transportation. Subsequent chapters explore essential urban services, including public education, community health services, fire protection, sanitation, and emergency medical services. The remaining sections discuss the amenities of urban life and urban politics and policy. This monograph should be useful to urban administrators and planners as well as students interested in urban problems.

Introduction to Dynamic Programming introduces the reader to dynamic programming and presents the underlying mathematical ideas and results, as well as the application of these ideas to various problem areas. A large number of solved practical problems and computational examples are included to clarify the way dynamic programming is used to solve problems. A consistent notation is applied throughout the text for the expression of quantities such as state variables and decision variables. This monograph consists of 10 chapters and opens with an overview of dynamic programming as a particular approach to optimization, along with the basic components of any mathematical optimization model. The following chapters discuss the application of dynamic programming to variational problems; functional equations and the principle of optimality; reduction of state dimensionality and approximations; and stochastic processes and the calculus of variations. The final chapter looks at several actual applications of dynamic programming to practical problems, such as animal feedlot optimization and optimal scheduling of excess cash investment. This book should be suitable for self-study or for use as a text in a one-semester course on dynamic programming at the senior or first-year, graduate level for students of mathematics, statistics, operations research, economics, business, industrial engineering, or other engineering fields.

A Course of Higher Mathematics, Volume II: Advanced Calculus covers the theory of functions of real variable in advanced calculus. This volume is divided into seven chapters and begins with a full discussion of the solution of ordinary differential equations with many applications to the treatment of physical problems. This topic is followed by an account of the properties of multiple integrals and of line integrals, with a valuable section on the theory of measurable sets and of multiple integrals. The subsequent chapters deal with the mathematics necessary to the examination of problems in classical field theories in vector algebra and vector analysis and the elements of differential geometry in three-dimensional space. The final chapters explore the Fourier series and the solution of the partial differential equations of classical mathematical physics. This book will prove useful to advanced mathematics students, engineers, and physicists.

The Fundamentals of Mathematical Analysis, Volume 2 is a continuation of the discussion of the fundamentals of mathematical analysis, specifically on the subject of curvilinear and surface integrals, with emphasis on the difference between the curvilinear and surface ""integrals of first kind"" and ""integrals of second kind."" The discussions in the book start with an introduction to the elementary concepts of series of numbers, infinite sequences and their limits, and the continuity of the sum of a series. The definition of improper integrals of unbounded functions and that of uniform convergence of integrals are explained. Curvilinear integrals of the first and second kinds are analyzed mathematically. The book then notes the application of surface integrals, through a parametric representation of a surface, and the calculation of the mass of a solid. The text also highlights that Green's formula, which connects a double integral over a plane domain with curvilinear integral along the contour of the domain, has an analogue in Ostrogradski's formula. The periodic values and harmonic analysis such as that found in the operation of a steam engine are analyzed. The volume ends with a note of further developments in mathematical analysis, which is a chronological presentation of important milestones in the history of analysis. The book is an ideal reference for mathematicians, students, and professors of calculus and advanced mathematics.
