Mathematics - Concordia University Libraries Recent Acquisitions

Titles in the call number range QA 1 - QA 73, QA 90 - QA 699 (Mathematics) that were added to the Concordia University Libraries collection in the last 60 days.


  • An introduction to analysis and integration theory / Esther R. Phillips
    QA 312 P48 1971

  • Human interaction with graphs : a visual querying perspective / Sourav S. Bhowmick, Byron Choi, Chengkai Li
    QA 166 B464 2018eb
    Interacting with graphs using queries has emerged as an important research problem for real-world applications that center on large graph data. Given the syntactic complexity of graph query languages (e.g., SPARQL, Cypher), visual graph query interfaces make it easy for non-programmers to query such graph data repositories. In this book, we present recent developments in the emerging area of visual graph querying paradigm that bridges traditional graph querying with human computer interaction (HCI). Specifically, we focus on techniques that emphasize deep integration between the visual graph query interface and the underlying graph query engine. We discuss various strategies and guidance for constructing graph queries visually, interleaving processing of graph queries and visual actions, visual exploration of graph query results, and automated performance study of visual graph querying frameworks. In addition, this book highlights open problems and new research directions. In summary, in this book, we review and summarize the research thus far into the integration of HCI and graph querying to facilitate user-friendly interaction with graph-structured data, giving researchers a snapshot of the current state of the art in this topic, and future research directions.

  • A first course in optimization theory / Rangarajan K. Sundaram
    QA 402.5 S837 1996
    This book, first published in 1996, introduces students to optimization theory and its use in economics and allied disciplines. The first of its three parts examines the existence of solutions to optimization problems in Rn, and how these solutions may be identified. The second part explores how solutions to optimization problems change with changes in the underlying parameters, and the last part provides an extensive description of the fundamental principles of finite- and infinite-horizon dynamic programming. Each chapter contains a number of detailed examples explaining both the theory and its applications for first-year master's and graduate students. 'Cookbook' procedures are accompanied by a discussion of when such methods are guaranteed to be successful, and, equally importantly, when they could fail. Each result in the main body of the text is also accompanied by a complete proof. A preliminary chapter and three appendices are designed to keep the book mathematically self-contained.

  • MATLAB : a practical introduction to programming and problem solving / Stormy Attaway, Department of Mechanical Engineering, Boston University
    QA 297 A87 2019

    MATLAB: A Practical Introduction to Programming and Problem Solving , winner of TAA's 2017 Textbook Excellence Award ("Texty"), guides the reader through both programming and built-in functions to easily exploit MATLAB's extensive capabilities for tackling engineering and scientific problems. Assuming no knowledge of programming, this book starts with programming concepts, such as variables, assignments, and selection statements, moves on to loops, and then solves problems using both the programming concept and the power of MATLAB. The fifth edition has been updated to reflect the functionality of the current version of MATLAB (R2018a), including the addition of local functions in scripts, the new string type, coverage of recently introduced functions to import data from web sites, and updates to the Live Editor and App Designer.


  • The Continued Exercise of Reason : Public Addresses by George Boole / edited and with an introduction by Brendan Dooley
    QA 9.2 B657 2018eb

    Lectures, many never before published, that offer insights into the early thinking of the mathematician and polymath George Boole.

    George Boole (1815-1864), remembered by history as the developer of an eponymous form of algebraic logic, can be considered a pioneer of the information age not only because of the application of Boolean logic to the design of switching circuits but also because of his contributions to the mass distribution of knowledge. In the classroom and the lecture hall, Boole interpreted recent discoveries and debates in a wide range of fields for a general audience. This collection of lectures, many never before published, offers insights into the early thinking of an innovative mathematician and intellectual polymath.

    Bertrand Russell claimed that "pure mathematics was discovered by Boole," but before Boole joined a university faculty as professor of mathematics in 1849, advocacy for science and education occupied much of his time. He was deeply committed to the Victorian ideals of social improvement and cooperation, arguing that "the continued exercise of reason" joined all disciplines in a common endeavor. In these talks, Boole discusses the genius of Isaac Newton; ancient mythologies and forms of worship; the possibility of other inhabited planets in the universe; the virtues of free and open access to knowledge; the benefits of leisure; the quality of education; the origin of scientific knowledge; and the fellowship of intellectual culture. The lectures are accompanied by a substantive introduction by Brendan Dooley, the editor of the volume, that supplies biographical and historical context.


  • Simulation / Sheldon M. Ross, Epstein Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering, University of Southern California
    QA 273 R82 2013

    The 5th edition of Ross's Simulation continues to introduce aspiring and practicing actuaries, engineers, computer scientists and others to the practical aspects of constructing computerized simulation studies to analyze and interpret real phenomena. Readers learn to apply results of these analyses to problems in a wide variety of fields to obtain effective, accurate solutions and make predictions about future outcomes.

    This latest edition features all-new material on variance reduction, including control variables and their use in estimating the expected return at blackjack and their relation to regression analysis. Additionally, the 5th edition expands on Markov chain monte carlo methods, and offers unique information on the alias method for generating discrete random variables.

    By explaining how a computer can be used to generate random numbers and how to use these random numbers to generate the behavior of a stochastic model over time, Ross's Simulation, 5th edition presents the statistics needed to analyze simulated data as well as that needed for validating the simulation model.


  • Practical time series forecasting : a hands-on guide / Galit Shmueli
    QA 280 S56 2013
    Practical Time Series Forecasting is a hands-on introduction to quantitative forecasting of time series. Quantitative forecasting is an important component of decision making in a wide range of areas and across many business functions including economic forecasting, workload projections, sales forecasts, and transportation demand. Of course, forecasting is widely used also outside of business, such as in demography and climatology.The book introduces readers to the most popular statistical models and data mining algorithms used in practice. It covers issues relating to different steps of the forecasting process, from goal definition through data visualization, modeling, performance evaluation to model deployment.Practical Time Series Forecasting is suitable for courses on forecasting at the upper-undergraduate and graduate levels. It offers clear explanations, examples, end-of-chapter problems and a case.Methods are illustrated using XLMiner, an Excel add-on. However, any software that has time series forecasting capabilities can be used with the book.Galit Shmueli is Professor of Statistics at the University of Maryland's Smith School of Business. She is co-author of the textbook Data Mining for Business Intelligence, and the book Modeling Online Auctions, among many other publications in professional journals. She has been teaching courses on forecasting and data mining at the University of Maryland, the Indian School of Business, and online at Statistics.com.

  • Integrated fault diagnosis and control design of linear complex systems / Mohammadreza Davoodi, Nader Meskin and Khashayar Khorasani
    QA 402.3 D38 2018eb

    sensors, actuators or other components. It is crucial to be able to diagnose the occurrence of faults and to repair them in order to maintain, guarantee, and improve the overall safety, reliability, and performance of the systems. This book addresses the design challenges of developing and implementing novel integrated fault diagnosis and control technologies for complex linear systems.

    Integrated Fault Diagnosis and Control Design of Linear Complex Systems considers linear time-invariant (LTI) systems under both time- and event-triggered frameworks. The book initially develops novel methodologies for the problem of integrated fault diagnosis and control of LTI systems to address current design challenges. The results obtained are then extended to a number of complex linear systems, specifically to Markovian jump systems as well as to cooperative multi-agent systems.
