ISBN-13: 9783658133108

Lohmann beschäftigt sich mit numerischen Verfahren für die Fokker-Planck-Gleichung.
Ausgehend von einer Fourierapproximation leitet er notwendige Bedingungen für
die Nichtnegativität der Wahrscheinlichkeitsdichte und optimistic Semidefinitheit
zugehöriger Orientierungstensoren her. Unter Verwendung dieser Bedingungen entwickelt
der Autor neuartige Korrekturtechniken für die Fourierkoeffizienten, die zu

Download e-book for iPad: Modellbildung und Simulation: Eine anwendungsorientierte by Hans-Joachim Bungartz,Stefan Zimmer,Martin Buchholz,Dirk

By Hans-Joachim Bungartz,Stefan Zimmer,Martin Buchholz,Dirk Pflüger

ISBN-10: 364237655X

ISBN-13: 9783642376559

Dieses Buch gibt eine Einführung in die mathematische und informatische Modellierung sowie in die Simulation als universelle Methodik. Und so geht es um Klassen von Modellen, um deren Herleitung und um die Vielfalt an Beschreibungsarten, die eingesetzt werden können – diskret oder kontinuierlich, deterministisch oder stochastisch. Aber immer geht es auch darum, wie aus unterschiedlichen abstrakten Modellen ganz konkrete Simulationsergebnisse gewonnen werden können.
Nach einem kompakten Repetitorium zum benötigten mathematischen Apparat wird das Konzept „Über das Modell zur Simulation' anhand von 14 Szenarien aus den Bereichen „Spielen – entscheiden – planen', „Verkehr auf Highways und Datenhighways', „Dynamische Systeme' sowie „Physik im Rechner' umgesetzt. Ob Spieltheorie oder Finanzmathematik, Verkehr oder Regelung, ob Populationsdynamik oder Chaos, Molekulardynamik, Kontinuumsmechanik oder Computergraphik – der Leser erhält auf anschauliche und doch systematische Weise Einblicke in die Welt der Modelle und Simulationen.

Standards in numeracy are a relentless hindrance to academic policy-makers. even if, why are modifications in arithmetical functionality so marked? In Individual variations in Arithmetic, Ann Dowker seeks to supply a greater realizing of why those ameliorations in skill exist, encouraging a extra expert method of tackling numeracy difficulties.

This booklet experiences current study by way of the writer and through others near to arithmetical skill and provides powerful facts to aid a componential view of mathematics. Focusing totally on youngsters, yet together with dialogue of arithmetical cognition in fit adults and neuropsychological sufferers, all the imperative elements of arithmetic is lined. inside this quantity, findings from developmental, academic, cognitive and neuropsychological experiences are built-in in a different process. This ebook covers topics such as:

  • Counting and the significance of person differences.

  • Arithmetic evidence, tactics and diversified kinds of memory.

  • Causes of, and interventions with, mathematical difficulties.

  • The results of tradition, language and experience.

The academic implications of those findings are mentioned intimately, revealing unique insights that would be of serious curiosity to these learning or learning within the parts of schooling, neuroscience and developmental and cognitive psychology.

Read e-book online Frege's Theorem PDF

By Richard G. Heck

ISBN-10: 0199695644

ISBN-13: 9780199695645

Frege's Theorem collects 11 essays via Richard G Heck, Jr, one of many world's best professionals on Frege's philosophy. the theory is the primary contribution of Gottlob Frege's formal paintings on mathematics. It tells us that the axioms of mathematics might be derived, basically logically, from a unmarried precept: the variety of these items is equal to the variety of these issues simply in case those could be matched up one-to-one with these. yet that precept turns out so completely basic to thought of quantity that it may well virtually count number as a definition of quantity. if that is so, Frege's Theorem exhibits that mathematics follows, only logically, from a close to definition. As Crispin Wright used to be the 1st to clarify, that implies that Frege's logicism, lengthy notion lifeless, may perhaps but be viable.

Heck probes the philosophical value of the theory, utilizing it to release after which consultant a wide-ranging exploration of historic, philosophical, and technical matters within the philosophy of arithmetic and common sense, and in their connections with metaphysics, epistemology, the philosophy of language and brain, or even developmental psychology. The ebook starts with an outline that introduces the concept and the problems surrounding it, and explores how the essays that stick to give a contribution to our realizing of these matters. There also are new postscripts to 5 of the essays, which debate adjustments of brain, reply to released criticisms, and strengthen the dialogue but further.

ISBN-13: 9783642370083

This paintings offers a brief "getting began" advisor to Fortran 90/95. the main focus viewers includes novices to the sphere of numerical computation inside of Earth approach sciences (students, researchers or medical programmers). in addition, readers conversant in different programming languages can also take advantage of this paintings, by means of learning how a few programming thoughts they're accustomed to map to Fortran ninety five.

The major target is to allow readers to speedy commence utilizing Fortran ninety five for writing important courses. It additionally introduces a steady dialogue of Input/Output amenities appropriate for Earth procedure sciences, from the best ones to the extra complicated netCDF library (which has turn into a de facto common for dealing with the big datasets used inside of Earth method sciences). whereas comparable works already deal with those disciplines individually (each frequently supplying even more info than wanted via the start practitioner), the reader unearths during this e-book a shorter advisor which hyperlinks them. in comparison to different books, this paintings offers a way more compact view of the language, whereas additionally putting the language-elements in a extra utilized surroundings, via supplying examples on the topic of numerical computing and extra complicated Input/Output amenities for Earth procedure sciences.

Naturally, the insurance of the programming language is comparatively shallow, when you consider that many information are skipped. besides the fact that, lots of those info might be realized progressively through the practitioner, upon getting an summary and a few perform with the language via this book.
