The complete sixth season of the real-time drama series. 18 months after Day 5, the U.S. President has negotiated Jack's release from a Chinese prison so that Jack can help stop terrorists attempting to set off 'suitcase nukes' in U.S. cities. Unfortunately time is not on his side, and an explosion rocks LA. As well as trying to catch the terrorists, Jack is having problems with his family, which appears to be becoming involved with right wing patriots. Elsewhere, Jack's Chinese abductors inform him that they have Audrey Raines (Kim Raver) in custody and will only exchange her for classified Russian intelligence. When Russia gets wind of the situation, relations between the two superpowers head for meltdown.

Action drama starring Paul Walker and RZA. Set in a run-down Detroit City, where crime is rife, the local authorities have built a containment wall around derelict brick mansions which are being used by ruthless criminals including gang leader Tremaine (RZA). Police officer Damien Collier (Walker) goes undercover to infiltrate Tremaine's gang and put a stop to his plan to destroy the city. Damien also has a personal vendetta against the crime boss, who murdered his father, as does former convict Lino (David Belle), whose girlfriend has been kidnapped by Tremaine. Damien and Lino form an unlikely partnership as they attempt to seek vengeance while preventing the destruction of the city.

Gian-Carlo Rota was one of the most original and colourful mathematicians of the 20th century. His work on the foundations of combinatorics focused on the algebraic structures that lie behind diverse combinatorial areas, and created a new area of algebraic combinatorics. Written by two of his former students, this book is based on notes from his influential graduate courses and on face-to-face discussions. Topics include sets and valuations, partially ordered sets, distributive lattices, partitions and entropy, matching theory, free matrices, doubly stochastic matrices, Moebius functions, chains and antichains, Sperner theory, commuting equivalence relations and linear lattices, modular and geometric lattices, valuation rings, generating functions, umbral calculus, symmetric functions, Baxter algebras, unimodality of sequences, and location of zeros of polynomials. Many exercises and research problems are included, and unexplored areas of possible research are discussed. A must-have for all students and researchers in combinatorics and related areas.

R8,248 R999 Discovery Miles 9 990 Save R7,249 (88%) Shipped within 7 - 13 working days

A carefully revised edition of the well-respected ODE text, whose unique treatment provides a smooth transition to critical understanding of proofs of basic theorems. First chapters present a rigorous treatment of background material; middle chapters deal in detail with systems of nonlinear differential equations; final chapters are devoted to the study of second-order linear differential equations. The power of the theory of ODE is illustrated throughout by deriving the properties of important special functions, such as Bessel functions, hypergeometric functions, and the more common orthogonal polynomials, from their defining differential equations and boundary conditions. Contains several hundred exercises. Prerequisite is a first course in ODE.

R3,754 Discovery Miles 37 540 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

The deep and original ideas of Norman Levinson have had a lasting impact on fields as diverse as differential & integral equations, harmonic, complex & stochas- tic analysis, and analytic number theory during more than half a century. Yet, the extent of his contributions has not always been fully recognized in the mathematics community. For example, the horseshoe mapping constructed by Stephen Smale in 1960 played a central role in the development of the modern theory of dynami- cal systems and chaos. The horseshoe map was directly stimulated by Levinson's research on forced periodic oscillations of the Van der Pol oscillator, and specifi- cally by his seminal work initiated by Cartwright and Littlewood. In other topics, Levinson provided the foundation for a rigorous theory of singularly perturbed dif- ferential equations. He also made fundamental contributions to inverse scattering theory by showing the connection between scattering data and spectral data, thus relating the famous Gel'fand-Levitan method to the inverse scattering problem for the Schrodinger equation. He was the first to analyze and make explicit use of wave functions, now widely known as the Jost functions. Near the end of his life, Levinson returned to research in analytic number theory and made profound progress on the resolution of the Riemann Hypothesis. Levinson's papers are typically tightly crafted and masterpieces of brevity and clarity. It is our hope that the publication of these selected papers will bring his mathematical ideas to the attention of the larger mathematical community.

Originally published in 1981, this book forms volume 15 of the Encyclopedia of Mathematics and its Applications. The text provides a clear and thorough treatment of its subject, adhering to a clean exposition of the mathematical content of serious formulations of rational physical alternatives of quantum theory as elaborated in the influential works of the period, to which the authors made a significant contribution. The treatment falls into three distinct, logical parts: in the first part, the modern version of accumulated wisdom is presented, avoiding as far as possible the traditional language of classical physics for its interpretational character; in the second part, the individual structural elements for the logical content of the theory are laid out; in part three, the results of section two are used to reconstruct the usual Hilbert space formulation of quantum mechanics in a novel way.

R1,164 Discovery Miles 11 640 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Here is the first modern introduction to geometric probability, also known as integral geometry, presented at an elementary level, requiring little more than first-year graduate mathematics. Klein and Rota present the theory of intrinsic volumes due to Hadwiger, McMullen, Santal and others, along with a complete and elementary proof of Hadwiger's characterization theorem of invariant measures in Euclidean n-space. They develop the theory of the Euler characteristic from an integral-geometric point of view. The authors then prove the fundamental theorem of integral geometry, namely, the kinematic formula. Finally, the analogies between invariant measures on polyconvex sets and measures on order ideals of finite partially ordered sets are investigated. The relationship between convex geometry and enumerative combinatorics motivates much of the presentation. Every chapter concludes with a list of unsolved problems.

This book presents the mathematical theory of turbulence to engineers and physicists, and the physical theory of turbulence to mathematicians. It is the result of many years of research by the authors to analyze turbulence using Sobolev spaces and functional analysis. In this way the authors have recovered parts of the conventional theory of turbulence, deriving rigorously from the Navier-Stokes equations that had been arrived at earlier by phenomenological arguments. Appendices give full details of the mathematical proofs and subtleties.

The combinatorial theory of species, introduced by Joyal in 1980, provides a unified understanding of the use of generating functions for both labeled and unlabeled structures as well as a tool for the specification and analysis of these structures. This key reference presents the basic elements of the theory and gives a unified account of its developments and applications. The authors offer a modern introduction to the use of various generating functions, with applications to graphical enumeration, Polya Theory and analysis of data structures in computer science, and to other areas such as special functions, functional equations, asymptotic analysis, and differential equations.
