The geometry of random fields by Robert J. Adler

By Robert J. Adler

Initially released in 1981, The Geometry of Random Fields continues to be a huge textual content for its insurance and exposition of the idea of either delicate and nonsmooth random fields; closed shape expressions for varied geometric features of the day trip units of gentle, desk bound, Gaussian random fields over N-dimensional rectangles; descriptions of the neighborhood habit of random fields within the neighborhoods of excessive maxima; and a therapy of the Markov estate for Gaussian fields.

Audience: The middle viewers of the booklet is researchers in chance and data, with out past wisdom of geometry required. because the booklet used to be initially released it has develop into a customary reference in components of actual oceanography, cosmology, and neuroimaging. it's written at a degree available to nonspecialists, together with complicated undergraduates and early graduate scholars.

Contents: Preface to the Classics variation; Preface; Corrections and reviews; bankruptcy 1: Random Fields and day trip units; bankruptcy 2: Homogeneous Fields and Their Spectra; bankruptcy three: pattern functionality Regularity; bankruptcy four: Geometry and day trip features; bankruptcy five: a few expectancies; bankruptcy 6: neighborhood Maxima and High-Level tours; bankruptcy 7: a few Non-Gaussian Fields; bankruptcy eight: pattern functionality Erraticism and Hausdorff size; Appendix: The Markov estate for Gaussian Fields; References; writer Index; topic Index

Geometry of Complex Numbers (Dover Books on Mathematics)

Illuminating, greatly praised booklet on analytic geometry of circles, the Moebius transformation, and 2-dimensional non-Euclidean geometries. "This e-book can be in each library, and each specialist in classical functionality idea may be acquainted with this fabric. the writer has played a special carrier via making this fabric so comfortably available in one e-book.

Geometric Tomography (Encyclopedia of Mathematics and its Applications)

Geometric tomography bargains with the retrieval of data a couple of geometric item from facts relating its projections (shadows) on planes or cross-sections by way of planes. it's a geometric relative of automatic tomography, which reconstructs a picture from X-rays of a human sufferer. the topic overlaps with convex geometry and employs many instruments from that quarter, together with a few formulation from critical geometry.

First Steps in Differential Geometry: Riemannian, Contact, Symplectic (Undergraduate Texts in Mathematics)

Differential geometry arguably deals the smoothest transition from the normal collage arithmetic series of the 1st 4 semesters in calculus, linear algebra, and differential equations to the better degrees of abstraction and evidence encountered on the higher department via arithmetic majors. this present day it truly is attainable to explain differential geometry as "the learn of buildings at the tangent space," and this article develops this standpoint.
