Mathematik Verstehen: Philosophische und Didaktische Perspektiven

In diesem Sammelband werden aus philosophischer und aus didaktischer Perspektive Fragen diskutiert wie: Was bedeutet es, einen mathematischen Sachverhalt zu verstehen? Wie entsteht Verstehen von Mathematik im Lernprozess? (Wie) können wir Mathematikunterricht verstehen? Wie lässt sich schließlich Mathematik als Ganzes verstehen, und was trägt ein solches Verstehen zu menschlichem Verstehen allgemein bei? Das Buch fördert eine breite ...

Homotopy Quantum Field Theory

Homotopy Quantum Field Theory (HQFT) is a branch of Topological Quantum Field Theory founded by E. Witten and M. Atiyah. It applies ideas from theoretical physics to study principal bundles over manifolds and, more generally, homotopy classes of maps from manifolds to a fixed target space. This book is the first systematic exposition of Homotopy Quantum Field Theory. It starts with a formal definition of an HQFT and provides examples...

Biology and Mathematics: History and Challenges

To formalize the dynamics of living things is to search for invariants in a system that contains an irreducible aspect of “fuzziness”, because biological processes are characterized by their large statistical variability, and strong dependence on temporal and environmental factors. What is essential is the identification of what remains stable in a “living being” that is highly fluctuating. The use of mathematics is not limited to th...

Numerical Methods and Optimization in Finance Ed 2

Computationally-intensive tools play an increasingly important role in financial decisions. Many financial problems—ranging from asset allocation to risk management and from option pricing to model calibration—can be efficiently handled using modern computational techniques. Numerical Methods and Optimization in Finance presents such computational techniques, with an emphasis on simulation and optimization, particularly so-called heu...

A Statistical Biography of George Udny Yule : A Loafer of the World

Udny Yules seminal influence on time series analysis has long been recognized but much less recognized is that Yule was not only a wonderful expositor but that he had also published equally important research in an extraordinarily wide range of fields, from developing the theory of correlation and regression to providing mathematical models of evolutionary behavior, and from analyzing data on pauperism to using statistical methods to...
