Language and Mathematics: An Interdisciplinary Guide by Marcel Danesi

By Marcel Danesi

This publication explores the various disciplinary and theoretical hyperlinks among language, linguistics, and arithmetic. It examines developments in linguistics, reminiscent of structuralism, conceptual metaphor concept, and different correct theories, to convey that language and arithmetic have an analogous constitution, yet differential services, even if one with out the opposite wouldn't exist.

Generalized Concavity in Fuzzy Optimization and Decision Analysis (International Series in Operations Research & Management Science)

Convexity of units in linear areas, and concavity and convexity of features, lie on the root of lovely theoretical effects that are whilst tremendous beneficial within the research and resolution of optimization difficulties, together with difficulties of both unmarried aim or a number of targets. now not all of those effects depend inevitably on convexity and concavity; a few of the effects can ensure that every one neighborhood optimal can be a world optimal, giving those equipment broader program to a much broader category of difficulties.

Computability and Unsolvability (Dover Books on Computer Science)

During this vintage textual content, Dr. Davis offers a transparent advent to computability, at a sophisticated undergraduate point, that serves the desires of experts and non-specialists alike. partially One (Chapters 1–5), Professor Davis outlines the final conception of computability, discussing such issues as computable services, operations on computable capabilities, recursive features, Turing machines, self-applied, and unsolvable selection difficulties.

Elements of Automata Theory

Automata idea lies on the origin of computing device technology, and is key to a theoretical realizing of ways pcs paintings and what constitutes formal equipment. This treatise provides a rigorous account of the subject and illuminates its actual that means by way of the topic in numerous methods. the 1st a part of the e-book is organised round notions of rationality and recognisability.

Motivic Integration and its Interactions with Model Theory and Non-Archimedean Geometry: Volume 2 (London Mathematical Society Lecture Note Series)

The advance of Maxim Kontsevich's preliminary rules on motivic integration has by surprise prompted many different components of arithmetic, starting from the Langlands software over harmonic research, to non-Archimedean research, singularity idea and birational geometry. This ebook assembles the several theories of motivic integration and their purposes for the 1st time, permitting readers to match diversified ways and verify their person strengths.
