Clear, concise compendium of about 150 time-saving math short-cuts features faster, easier ways to add, subtract, multiply, and divide. Each problem includes an explanation of the method, a step-by-step solution, the short-cut solution, and proof, as well as an explanation of why it works. No special math ability needed.
Tips for simplifying tricky basic math and pre-algebra operationsWhether you’re a student preparing to take algebra or a parent who wants or needs to brush up on basic math, this fun, friendly guide has the tools you need to get in gear. From positive, negative, and whole numbers to fractions, decimals, and percents, you’ll build necessary math skills to tackle more advanced topics, such as imaginary numbers, variables, and algebraic equations.Explanations and practical examples that mirror today’s teaching methodsRelevant cultural vernacular and referencesStandard For Dummiesmaterials that match the current standard and designBasic Math & Pre-Algebra For Dummies takes the intimidation out of tricky operations and helps you get ready for algebra!
Swarm-based multi-agent simulation leads to better modeling of tasks in biology, engineering, economics, art, and many other areas. It also facilitates an understanding of complicated phenomena that cannot be solved analytically. Agent-Based Modeling and Simulation with Swarm provides the methodology for a multi-agent-based modeling approach that integrates computational techniques such as artificial life, cellular automata, and bio-inspired optimization. Each chapter gives an overview of the problem, explores state-of-the-art technology in the field, and discusses multi-agent frameworks.
Do math more quickly and with more confidence — with less reliance on paper, apps, and calculators. For people who automatically run to the nearest calculator, Idiot’s Guides: Speed Math teaches tips, tricks, and straightforward methods to doing math at a fast — and accurate — rate. Practice examples easily illustrate how even the most math-shy person can better perform calculations.
Das Buch lotet diese "obskure" Konstante aus. Die Reise beginnt mit Logarithmen und der harmonischen Reihe. Es folgen Zeta-Funktionen und Eulers wunderbare Identitat, Bernoulli-Zahlen, Madelungsche Konstanten, Fettfinger in Worterbuchern, elende mathematische Wurmer und Jeeps in der Wuste. Harmonien in der Geometrie, in der Musik und bei Primzahlen!
Desktop Grid Computing presents common techniques used in numerous models, algorithms, and tools developed during the last decade to implement desktop grid computing. These techniques enable the solution of many important sub-problems for middleware design, including scheduling, data management, security, load balancing, result certification, and fault tolerance.The book’s first part covers the initial ideas and basic concepts of desktop grid computing. The second part explores challenging current and future problems.
Designed for a one-semester course, Introduction to Numerical Analysis and Scientific Computing presents fundamental concepts of numerical mathematics and explains how to implement and program numerical methods. The classroom-tested text helps students understand floating point number representations, particularly those pertaining to IEEE simple and double-precision standards as used in scientific computer environments such as MATLAB® version 7.
Drawing on their years of teaching students in mathematics, engineering, and the sciences, the authors discuss computer arithmetic as a source for generating round-off errors and how to avoid the use of algebraic expression that may lead to loss of significant figures.
A Readable yet Rigorous Approach to an Essential Part of Mathematical ThinkingBack by popular demand, Real Analysis and Foundations, Third Edition bridges the gap between classic theoretical texts and less rigorous ones, providing a smooth transition from logic and proofs to real analysis. Along with the basic material, the text covers Riemann-Stieltjes integrals, Fourier analysis, metric spaces and applications, and differential equations.New to the Third EditionOffering a more streamlined presentation, this edition moves elementary number systems and set theory and logic to appendices and removes the material on wavelet theory, measure theory, differential forms, and the method of characteristics.
Differential Forms and the Geometry of General Relativity provides readers with a coherent path to understanding relativity. Requiring little more than calculus and some linear algebra, it helps readers learn just enough differential geometry to grasp the basics of general relativity.
The book contains two intertwined but distinct halves. Designed for advanced undergraduate or beginning graduate students in mathematics or physics, most of the text requires little more than familiarity with calculus and linear algebra.
Many useful procedures explained and taught: two-column addition, left-to-right subtraction, direct multiplication by numbers greater than 12, mental division of large numbers, more. Also numerous helpful short cuts. More than 8,000 problems, with solutions.
