Professor Stewart's Cabinet of Mathematical Curiosities

Understanding that the main intriguing math isn't taught in class, Professor Ian Stewart has spent years filling his cupboard with exciting mathematical video games, puzzles, tales, and factoids meant for the adventurous brain. This ebook finds the main exhilarating oddities from Professor Stewart’s mythical cupboard.

Accuracy and Reliability in Scientific Computing

Numerical software program is used to check medical theories, layout airplanes and bridges, function production traces, regulate energy vegetation and refineries, study monetary derivatives, establish genomes, and supply the certainty essential to derive and learn melanoma remedies. as a result of the excessive stakes concerned, it truly is crucial that effects computed utilizing software program be exact, trustworthy, and strong.

Humans can teach MAPLE! > solve({ a+b = a*exp(-1)+b*exp(-2), -a-2*b = -(-a*exp(-1)-2*b*exp(-2))},{a,b}); > assign("); > y3:=t->1/2+a*exp(-t) +b*exp(-2*t); Here's my check that y3 is a solution: > (D@@2)(y3)(t) + 3*D(y3)(t) + 2*y3(t); > evalf(y3(0)-y3(1)); > evalf(D(y3)(0)+D(y3)(1)); Finally, here is a plot of the three solutions. 1); 44 Section 12: The Simple Paradigm for Linear Mappings from E to E It's time to put together two ideas: might one dare to guess the form for the paradigm in a general inner product space?

Examples (1) Unbounded sets are not totally bounded. (2) In L 2, cl(D 1(0)) - - the closed unit disk - - is not totally bounded. Here's why: Let c = 2/2. Since ||ei - ej || = 2, then any collection of disks of radius less than 2/2 which covers all of cl(D1(0)) must be infinite. (3) In R 3, cl(D 1(0)) is totally bounded. Here's why: Suppose that K is a positive integer. Choose points F such that if {a,b,c} is one of them then each of a, b, and c has the form m/k where m is an integer and -k ≤ m ≤ k.

A set C is compact if every open covering of C has a finite subcovering. A set C is sequentially compact provided that if {sp} is a sequence with values in C then there is a subsequence of {sp} that converges and has limit in C. A set S is totally bounded if, for each positive number c, there is a finite set n of points {x p}p=1 such that S is contained in ∪p Dc (x p). ) Examples (1) Unbounded sets are not totally bounded. (2) In L 2, cl(D 1(0)) - - the closed unit disk - - is not totally bounded.
