Download The Jesuits, The Padroado and East Asian Science (1552-1773) by Luis Saraiva, Catherine Jami PDF

By Luis Saraiva, Catherine Jami

On the finish of the fifteenth century, Portugal was once given the oversight (Padroado) of all Catholic missions in Asia. The Society of Jesus performed an incredible function during this firm of evangelization, which in Jesuit arms ended in the transmission of significant components of ecu mathematical sciences to East Asia. The essays during this quantity current very important new facts and research at the quantity to and ways that Jesuit medical tradition and Portuguese regulations relating to schooling, exchange and challenge formed the reception of “Western studying” in China, Japan, Korea and Vietnam within the early sleek interval.

Download Metric Spaces, Convexity and Nonpositive Curvature by Athanase Papadopoulos PDF

By Athanase Papadopoulos

This booklet is set metric areas of nonpositive curvature within the feel of Busemann, that's, metric areas whose distance functionality satisfies a convexity situation. It additionally includes a systematic creation to metric geometry, in addition to an in depth presentation of a few aspects of convexity conception which are worthy within the research of nonpositive curvature.

The ideas and the thoughts are illustrated through many examples, specifically from hyperbolic geometry, Hilbert geometry and Teichmüller theory.

For the second one variation, a few corrections and some additions were made, and the bibliography has been up-to-date.

Download Mathematics for Industry: Challenges and Frontiers. A by David R. Ferguson, Thomas J. Peters PDF

By David R. Ferguson, Thomas J. Peters

This choice of papers is a unique book for SIAM. it really is, initially, a discussion board for best commercial and govt scientists and engineers to explain their paintings and what they desire to complete over the following decade. The objective is to concentration the mathematical neighborhood on examine that would either develop arithmetic and supply fast advantages to undefined. So this isn't a e-book on arithmetic within the strictest feel. it's not equipped round a unmarried or maybe a number of mathematical disciplines. The papers comprise few, if any, statements and proofs of theorems. fairly, they concentrate on describing the desires of and executive and on highlighting arithmetic which can play a job in offering suggestions. The papers have been elicited basically from arithmetic for undefined: demanding situations and Frontiers, a convention subsidized by means of SIAM in October, 2003. This convention used to be various from different SIAM meetings in that it used to be a discussion board for medical specialists from and executive to fulfill with contributors of the mathematical neighborhood to debate the visions they'd for his or her industries and the hindrances they observed to attaining these ambitions. a particular function of this paintings is its association. the 3 sections: commercial difficulties; Mathematical Responses to business difficulties; and the method of Mathematical Modeling, perform, and schooling supply a strategy view, continuously initiated via a realistic challenge, resulting in the necessity for responsive arithmetic either on the study and academic degrees. All themes are tightly built-in with modern computing expertise. Mathematical themes contain splines, modeling, computational fluid dynamics, statistical version verification, and arithmetic for layout and simulation. educational mathematicians who desire to expand their view of business arithmetic will locate this ebook precious. commercial mathematicians will locate aid for the expanding have to collaborate with educational mathematicians and scientists. scholars who're, or are considering, pursuing a occupation in commercial or educational utilized arithmetic will locate this e-book a wealthy resource of fabric at the difficulties dealing with and may boost an figuring out of the connection among arithmetic and commercial difficulties. academics of utilized arithmetic can use this e-book to reinforce average educating fabrics.

Download Bedeutung und Notwendigkeit: Eine Studie zur Semantik und by Rudolf Carnap, Wilhelm Bader PDF

By Rudolf Carnap, Wilhelm Bader

Nach der Bedeutungsanalyse ist der zweite in dies em Buch eror terte Hauptgegenstand die modale Logik, d. h. die Theorie der Modalitaten, wie Notwendigkeit, Zufalligkeit, Moglichkeit, Unmog lichkeit usw. Verschiedene Systeme der modalen Logik sind von ver schiedenen Autoren vorgeschlagen worden. Es scheint mir jedoch, daiS es nicht moglich ist, ein befriedigendes procedure zu konstruieren, bevor die Bedeutungen der Modalitaten geniigend klargestellt sind. Ich glaube ferner, daiS diese Klarstellung am besten dadurch erfolgen kann, daiS jeder der modalen Begriffe mit einem entsprechenden semantischen Begriff (z. B. Notwendigkeit mit L-Wahrheit) in Kor relation gebracht wird. Es wird sich zeigen, daiS diese Methode auch zu einer Klarung und Ausschaltung gewisser Ratsel fiihrt, auf die Logiker im Zusammenhang mit den Modalitaten gestoiSen sind. 1m Vorwort des zweiten Bandes der "Studies in Semantics" kiindigte ich meine Absicht an, als nachsten Band ein Buch iiber modale Logik zu veroffentlichen, das unter anderem syntaktische und seman tische Systeme, die Modalitaten mit Quantifizierung kombinieren, enthalten sollte. Das vorliegende Buch ist jedoch noch nicht die voll standige Erfiillung dieses Versprechens; es enthalt nur Analysen und Erorterungen von Modalitaten, welche die Konstruktion von moda len Systemen einleiten. Die Systeme selbst werden hier nicht geboten. In einem an anderer Stelle veroffentlichten Artikel (siehe Bibliogra phie) habe ich einen Kalkiil und ein semantisches method, das Moda litaten mit Quantifizierung verkniipft, dargelegt und einige der diese Systeme betreffenden Ergebnisse zusammengefaiSt. Eine umfassen dere Darstellung der schon gefundenen und noch zu findenden Ergebnisse muiS fiir ein anderes Mal zuriickgestellt werden.
