Resources for Teaching Discrete Mathematics by Brian Hopkins Pdf
Hopkins collects the work of 35 instructors who share their innovations and insights about teaching discrete mathematics at the high school and college level. The book's 9 classroom-tested projects, including building a geodesic dome, come with student handouts, solutions, and notes for the instructor. The 11 history modules presented draw on original sources, such as Pascal's "Treatise on the Arithmetical Triangle," allowing students to explore topics in their original contexts. Three articles address extensions of standard discrete mathematics content. Two other articles explore pedagogy specifically related to discrete mathematics courses: adapting a group discovery method to larger classes, and using logic in encouraging students to construct proofs.
This well-illustrated book—in color throughout—presents a thorough introduction to the mathematics of Buckminster Fuller’s invention of the geodesic dome, which paved the way for a flood of practical applications as diverse as weather forecasting and fish farms. The author explains the principles of spherical design and the three main categories of subdivision based on geometric solids (polyhedra). He illustrates how basic and advanced CAD techniques apply to spherical subdivision and covers modern applications in product design, engineering, science, games, and sports balls.
Well-illustrated, practical approach to creating star-faced spherical forms that can serve as basic structures for geodesic domes. Complete instructions for making models from circular bands of paper with just a ruler and compass. 1979 edition.
Problems in Applied Mathematics by Murray S. Klamkin Pdf
People in all walks of life--and perhaps mathematicians especially--delight in working on problems for the sheer pleasure of meeting a challenge. The problem section of SIAM Review has always provided such a challenge for mathematicians. The section was started to offer classroom instructors and their students as well as other interested problemists, a set of problems--solved or unsolved-- illustrating various applications of mathematics. In many cases the unsolved problems were eventually solved. Problems in Applied Mathematics is a compilation of 380 of SIAM Review's most interesting problems dating back to the journal's inception in 1959. The problems are classified into 22 broad categories including Series, Special Functions, Integrals, Polynomials, Probability, Combinatorics, Matrices and Determinants, Optimization, Inequalities, Ordinary Differential Equations, Boundary Value Problems, Asymptotics and Approximations, Mechanics, Graph Theory, and Geometry.
Designed for classroom use, this book contains short, self-contained mathematical models of problems in the physical, mathematical, and biological sciences first published in the Classroom Notes section of the SIAM Review from 1975-1985. The problems provide an ideal way to make complex subject matter more accessible to the student through the use of concrete applications. Each section has extensive supplementary references provided by the editor from his years of experience with mathematical modelling.
Geometry of the Generalized Geodesic Flow and Inverse Spectral Problems by Vesselin M. Petkov,Luchezar N. Stoyanov Pdf
This book is a new edition of a title originally published in1992. No other book has been published that treats inverse spectral and inverse scattering results by using the so called Poisson summation formula and the related study of singularities. This book presents these in a closed and comprehensive form, and the exposition is based on a combination of different tools and results from dynamical systems, microlocal analysis, spectral and scattering theory. The content of the first edition is still relevant, however the new edition will include several new results established after 1992; new text will comprise about a third of the content of the new edition. The main chapters in the first edition in combination with the new chapters will provide a better and more comprehensive presentation of importance for the applications inverse results. These results are obtained by modern mathematical techniques which will be presented together in order to give the readers the opportunity to completely understand them. Moreover, some basic generic properties established by the authors after the publication of the first edition establishing the wide range of applicability of the Poison relation will be presented for first time in the new edition of the book.
What Is Domed City In the next 100 years, humanity must find suitable inhabited areas beyond Earth. In reaction to human-caused disruptions in planetary systems, physicist Stephen Hawking urged in 2017. Elon Musk, an entrepreneur, met with 60 scientists and engineers in Colorado a year later to explore Mars colonization. Turning to our own planet, a small group of architects is creating ingenious shelters to survive the effects of climate change. A domed metropolis is a fictitious construction that encloses a big urban area beneath a single roof. Most accounts describe an airtight and pressurized dome that creates a habitat that can be managed for air temperature, composition, and quality, generally due to an external atmosphere (or lack thereof) that is hostile to living for one or more reasons. Domed cities, which can be found on Earth, a moon, or another planet, have been a staple of science fiction and futurology since the early twentieth century. How You Will Benefit (I) Insights, and validations about the following topics: Chapter 1: Domed City Chapter 2: Geodesic Dome Chapter 3: Dyson Sphere Chapter 4: Concrete Shell Chapter 5: Ellipsoidal Dome Chapter 6: Onion Dome Chapter 7: Elliptical Dome Chapter 8: Monolithic Dome Chapter 9: Radome (II) Answering the public top questions about domed city.

Divided Spheres by Edward S. Popko,Christopher J. Kitrick Pdf
Praise for the previous edition [. . .] Dr. Popko’s elegant new book extends both the science and the art of spherical modeling to include Computer-Aided Design and applications, which I would never have imagined when I started down this fascinating and rewarding path. His lovely illustrations bring the subject to life for all readers, including those who are not drawn to the mathematics. This book demonstrates the scope, beauty, and utility of an art and science with roots in antiquity. [. . .] Anyone with an interest in the geometry of spheres, whether a professional engineer, an architect or product designer, a student, a teacher, or simply someone curious about the spectrum of topics to be found in this book, will find it helpful and rewarding. – Magnus Wenninger, Benedictine Monk and Polyhedral Modeler Ed Popko's comprehensive survey of the history, literature, geometric, and mathematical properties of the sphere is the definitive work on the subject. His masterful and thorough investigation of every aspect is covered with sensitivity and intelligence. This book should be in the library of anyone interested in the orderly subdivision of the sphere. – Shoji Sadao, Architect, Cartographer and lifelong business partner of Buckminster Fuller Edward Popko's Divided Spheres is a "thesaurus" must to those whose academic interest in the world of geometry looks to greater coverage of synonyms and antonyms of this beautiful shape we call a sphere. The late Buckminster Fuller might well place this manuscript as an all-reference for illumination to one of nature's most perfect inventions. – Thomas T. K. Zung, Senior Partner, Buckminster Fuller, Sadao, & Zung Architects. This first edition of this well-illustrated book presented a thorough introduction to the mathematics of Buckminster Fuller’s invention of the geodesic dome, which paved the way for a flood of practical applications as diverse as weather forecasting and fish farms. The author explained the principles of spherical design and the three classic methods of subdivision based on geometric solids (polyhedra). This thoroughly edited new edition does all that, while also introducing new techniques that extend the class concept by relaxing the triangulation constraint to develop two new forms of optimized hexagonal tessellations. The objective is to generate spherical grids where all edge (or arc) lengths or overlap ratios are equal. New to the Second Edition New Foreword by Joseph Clinton, lifelong Buckminster Fuller collaborator A new chapter by Chris Kitrick on the mathematical techniques for developing optimal single-edge hexagonal tessellations, of varying density, with the smallest edge possible for a particular topology, suggesting ways of comparing their levels of optimization An expanded history of the evolution of spherical subdivision New applications of spherical design in science, product design, architecture, and entertainment New geodesic algorithms for grid optimization New full-color spherical illustrations created using DisplaySphere to aid readers in visualizing and comparing the various tessellations presented in the book Updated Bibliography with references to the most recent advancements in spherical subdivision methods
