Factorization of matrix and operator functions: The state space method

The current ebook offers with factorization difficulties for matrix and operator services. the issues originate from, or are influenced by means of, the idea of non-selfadjoint operators, the idea of matrix polynomials, mathematical platforms and keep watch over conception, the idea of Riccati equations, inversion of convolution operators, conception of activity scheduling in operations learn.

The Mathematical Foundations of Mixing: The Linked Twist Map as a Paradigm in Applications: Micro to Macro, Fluids to Solids

Blending tactics happen in quite a few technological and normal purposes, with size and time scales starting from the very small - as in microfluidic purposes - to the very huge - for instance, blending within the Earth's oceans and surroundings. the range of difficulties may give upward push to a range of methods.

Numerical Methods for Nonlinear Elliptic Differential Equations: A Synopsis

Nonlinear elliptic difficulties play an more and more very important function in arithmetic, technology and engineering, developing a thrilling interaction among the topics. this can be the 1st and simply booklet to end up in a scientific and unifying manner, balance, convergence and computing effects for the various numerical tools for nonlinear elliptic difficulties.

The Riemann-Hilbert Problem: A Publication from the Steklov Institute of Mathematics Adviser: Armen Sergeev

This publication is dedicated to Hilbert's twenty first challenge (the Riemann-Hilbert challenge) which belongs to the idea of linear structures of normal differential equations within the complicated area. the matter concems the lifestyles of a Fuchsian procedure with prescribed singularities and monodromy. Hilbert used to be confident that any such process constantly exists.
