A Comprehensive Treatment of q-Calculus by Thomas Ernst

By Thomas Ernst

To date, the theoretical improvement of q-calculus has rested on a non-uniform foundation. more often than not, the cumbersome Gasper-Rahman notation was once used, however the released works on q-calculus regarded assorted reckoning on the place and via whom they have been written. This confusion of tongues not just advanced the theoretical improvement but in addition contributed to q-calculus closing a overlooked mathematical box. This publication overcomes those difficulties by means of introducing a brand new and fascinating notation for q-calculus in line with logarithms.For example, q-hypergeometric services are actually visually transparent and straightforward to track again to their hypergeometric mom and dad. With this new notation it's also effortless to determine the relationship among q-hypergeometric capabilities and the q-gamma functionality, whatever that in the past has been overlooked.

The booklet covers many subject matters on q-calculus, together with precise features, combinatorics, and q-difference equations. except a radical assessment of the old improvement of q-calculus, this booklet additionally provides the domain names of recent physics for which q-calculus is appropriate, corresponding to particle physics and supersymmetry, to call only a few.​

Complexity of Lattice Problems: A Cryptographic Perspective (The Springer International Series in Engineering and Computer Science)

Lattices are geometric items that may be pictorially defined because the set of intersection issues of an unlimited, common n-dimensional grid. De­ spite their obvious simplicity, lattices disguise a wealthy combinatorial struc­ ture, which has attracted the eye of significant mathematicians during the last centuries.

Rudiments of Calculus (Studies in Logic and the Foundations of Mathematics)

This ebook offers what in our opinion constitutes the root of the idea of the mu-calculus, regarded as an algebraic process instead of a common sense. we have now needed to offer the topic in a unified means, and in a sort as common as attainable. for that reason, our emphasis is at the generality of the fixed-point notation, and at the connections among mu-calculus, video games, and automata, which we additionally clarify in an algebraic approach.

The Local Langlands Conjecture for GL(2): 335 (Grundlehren der mathematischen Wissenschaften)

The neighborhood Langlands Conjecture for GL(2) contributes an unheard of textual content to the so-called Langlands conception. it's an bold learn application of already forty years and provides an entire and self-contained facts of the Langlands conjecture within the case n=2. it's aimed toward graduate scholars and at researchers in comparable fields.

Von Zahlen und Größen: Dritthalbtausend Jahre Theorie und Praxis - Band 1 (German Edition)

Das zweibändige Werk behandelt die Mathematik und ihre Geschichte. Die sorgfältige examine dessen, was once die Alten bewiesen, führt zu einem besseren Verständnis und größerer Motivation im Umgang mit heutiger Mathematik. Die Themen des 1. Bandes reichen von der Konstruktion der reellen Zahlen mittels dedekindscher Schnitte bis hin zum Fundamentalsatz der Algebra.
