Reassessing Riemann’s Paper: On the Number of Primes Less Than a Given Magnitude

Reassessing Riemann’s Paper: On the Number of Primes Less Than a Given Magnitude By Walter Dittrich
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 78 Pages | ISBN : 3319914812 | 3.51 MB

In this book, the author pays tribute to Bernhard Riemann (1826–1866), mathematician with revolutionary ideas, whose work on the theory of integration, the Fourier transform, the hypergeometric differential equation, etc. contributed immensely to mathematical physics. This book concentrates in particular on Riemann’s only work on prime numbers, including such then new ideas as analytical continuation in the complex plane and the product formula for entire functions. A detailed analysis of the zeros of the Riemann zeta function is presented. The impact of Riemann’s ideas on regularizing infinite values in field theory is also emphasized.

The Design Imperative: The Art and Science of Design Management

The Design Imperative: The Art and Science of Design Management By Steven Chen
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 (2019 Edition) | 239 Pages | ISBN : 3319785672 | 5.25 MB

This book examines how to optimize design management processes in order to produce innovation within organizations. It first looks at how to harvest a culture of design and then examines topics specific to product and service design. Individual chapters provide anecdotes drawn from leading design-oriented firms, and best practices based on cutting-edge, scientific research. This book’s unique blend of theory and application will offer students, scholars, and managers valuable insight on how organizations can revolutionize their design processes and leverage their approach to create groundbreaking products and services.

A History of Folding in Mathematics: Mathematizing the Margins

A History of Folding in Mathematics: Mathematizing the Margins by Michael Friedman
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 430 Pages | ISBN : 331972486X | 47.81 MB

While it is well known that the Delian problems are impossible to solve with a straightedge and compass – for example, it is impossible to construct a segment whose length is ∛2 with these instruments – the Italian mathematician Margherita Beloch Piazzolla’s discovery in 1934 that one can in fact construct a segment of length ∛2 with a single paper fold was completely ignored (till the end of the 1980s). This comes as no surprise, since with few exceptions paper folding was seldom considered as a mathematical practice, let alone as a mathematical procedure of inference or proof that could prompt novel mathematical discoveries. A few question immediately arise: Why did paper folding become a non-instrument? What caused the marginalisation of this technique? And how was the mathematical knowledge, which was nevertheless transmitted and prompted by paper folding, later treated and conceptualised?

Psychotherapy, Literature and the Visual and Performing Arts

Psychotherapy, Literature and the Visual and Performing Arts By Bruce Kirkcaldy
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 254 Pages | ISBN : 331975422X | 13.49 MB

This book explores the relevance of literature and the performing and visual arts for effective clinical psychotherapy. There is a growing interest in the use of the arts in psychotherapy, in part due to an increasing awareness of the limitations in verbal communication and scepticism towards traditional forms of medical treatment. Gathering together perspectives from international practitioners this volume embraces the value of a range of mediums to psychotherapy, from film and photo-therapy to literature and narrative therapy. Based on theoretical studies, clinical expertise and experiential learning, authors offer detailed guidelines on the value of various art forms in practice.

Wireless Positioning: Principles and Practice

Wireless Positioning: Principles and Practice By Ian Sharp
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 (2019 Edition) | 629 Pages | ISBN : 9811087903 | 27.95 MB

This book focuses on non-GNSS positioning systems and approaches. Although it addresses both theoretical and practical aspects, the primary focus is on engineering practice. This is achieved by providing in-depth studies on a number of major topics such as tracking system architecture, link budget, system design, implementation, testing, and performance evaluation. It studies four positioning application cases in detail: covert vehicle tracking, horse racing, rowing, and tracking for field sports.
