Historically and technically important papers range from early work in mathematical control theory to studies in adaptive control processes. Contributors include J. C. Maxwell, H. Nyquist, H. W. Bode, other experts. 1964 edition.

Robert Hooke and Edmond Halley, whose place in history has been overshadowed by the giant figure of Newton, were pioneering scientists within their own right, and instrumental ...

Scientifica Historica is a bibliophilic journey through time, surveying the greatest science titles through the ages and exploring the history, development and progression of scientific writing.

Until now, popular science has relegated the atom to a supporting role in defining the different chemical elements of the periodic table. This bold new title places its subject center stage, shining the spotlight directly onto the structure and properties of this tiniest amount of anything it is possible ...

Volume 2 of the great physicist and mathematician's final elaboration of the theory of electromagnetism covers the study of solenoids and shells, magnetic induction, methods of observation, and terrestrial magnetism. Additional topics include the mutual action of electric currents, dimensions of electric ...

This book is well known for its proof that many mathematical systems — including lattice theory and closure algebras — are undecidable. It consists of three treatises from one of the greatest logicians of all time: "A General Method in Proofs of Undecidability," "Undecidability and Essential Undecidability ...

This is the definitive edition of one of the very greatest classics of all time — the full Euclid, not an abridgement. Using the text established by Heiberg, Sir Thomas Heath encompasses almost 2,500 years of mathematical and historical study upon Euclid. This unabridged republication of the original ...

Part I of this coherent, well-organized text deals with formal principles of inference and definition. Part II explores elementary intuitive set theory, with separate chapters on sets, relations, and functions. Ideal for undergraduates.

This three-part treatment of partial differential equations focuses on elliptic and evolution equations. Largely self-contained, it concludes with a series of independent topics directly related to the methods and results of the preceding sections that helps introduce readers to advanced topics for further ...

In 1947 J. Robert Oppenheimer organized a historic conference of physicists at Shelter Island, located off the eastern tip of Long Island, to discuss recent advances in theoretical physics and the direction of future research. Over three decades later, the physics community held another meeting, the ...

"Remarkably comprehensive, concise and clear." — Industrial Laboratories "Considered as a condensed text in the classical manner, the book can well be recommended." — Nature Here is a clear introduction to classic vector and tensor analysis for students of engineering and mathematical physics.
