In 2002, the year marking the bicentennial of Abel s birth, the Norwegian P- liament established the Niels Henrik Abel Memorial Fund with the objective of creating an international prize for outstanding scienti c work in the eld of mathematics the Abel Prize. In this book we would like to present the Abel Prize and the Abel Laureates of the rst ve years. The book results from an initiative of the Mathematics section of the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters. It is intended as the rst volume in a series, each volume comprising ve years. The book starts with the history of the Abel Prize a story that goes back more than a hundred years written by Abel s biographer, Arild Stubhaug. It is followed by Nils A. Baas biographical sketch of Atle Selberg; at the opening ceremony of the Abel Bicentennial Conference in Oslo in 2002, an Honorary Abel Prize was presented to Atle Selberg.

CO«i»b.H BaCHJIbeBHa lU>BaJIeBcR8JI (Sonja Kovalevsky) was born in Moscow in 1850 and died in Stockholm in 1891. Between these years, in the then changing and turbulent circumstances for Europe, lies the all too brief life of this remarkable woman. This life was lived out within the great European centers of power and learning in Russia, France, Germany, Switzerland, England and Sweden. To this day, now 150 years after her birth, her influence for and contribution to mathe matics, science, literature, women's rights and democratic government are recorded and reviewed, not only in Europe but now in countries far removed in time and distance from the lands of her birth and being. This volume, dedicated to her memory and to her achievements, records the Proceedings of the Marcus Wallenberg Symposium held, in memory of Sonja Kovalevsky, at Stockholm University from 18 to 22 June 2000. The symposium was held at the Department of Mathematics with its excellent library and lecture halls providing favourable working conditions. Within these pages are contained a curriculum vitae for Sonja Kovalevsky, a list of all her scientific publications, together with a copy of the moving and elegant obituary notice written by her friend and protector Gosta Mittag-Leffler. These papers are followed by a leading article entitled Sonja Kovalevsky: Her life and professorship in Stockholm, written especially for this volume by Jan-Erik Bjork in preparation for his major address to the Symposium.

`Given the currency of the issues and the status of the contributors, this book will be an important foundational source for faculty and doctoral students in the organizations sciences' - Michael Tushman, Harvard University Variations in Organization Science celebrates Donald T Campbell's many contributions to organization science, presenting new variations which stem directly from his work. Contributing authors review and extend Campbell's theories in four major areas: blind variation, selection and retention especially inside firms; multilevel co-evolution in organizational parts and wholes; process level analysis and modelling epistemology and methodology. The book includes an unusual appendix, Donald T Campbell's curriculum vitae.

Through his voluminous and influential writings, editorial activities, organizational leadership, intellectual acumen, and strong sense of history, Clifford A. Truesdell (1919-2000) was the main architect for the renaissance of rational continuum mechanics since the middle of the 20th century. This collection of 42 essays and research papers pays tribute to this man of mathematics, science, and natural philosophy as well as to his legacy. There are essays of personal reminiscences (including contributions from J. Serrin, W. Noll, and B.D. Coleman among others), as are papers at the forefronts of research in rational continuum mechanics and its applications to materials science and structural mechanics. With historical photographs, a curriculum vitae and a complete list of publications of Clifford Truesdell, this collection will be of lasting value to applied mathematicians, research scientists and engineers, and historians of science who are interested in the past and current status of the modern rationalist movement in continuum mechanics.

Stochastic Processes, Optimization, and Control...
187,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This edited volume contains 16 research articles and presents recent and pressing issues in stochastic processes, control theory, differential games, optimization, and their applications in finance, manufacturing, queueing networks, and climate control. One of the salient features is that the book is highly multi-disciplinary. Another distinct characteristic of the book is that all papers are motivated by applications in which optimization, control, and stochastics are inseparable. This book will be a timely addition to the literature and will be of interest to people working in the aforementioned fields. Most importantly, this volume is dedicated to Professor Suresh Sethi on the occasion of his 60th birthday, in view of his distinguished career, his contributions and achievements, and his influence on the areas of control theory and applications, operations research, and management science, as well as his dedication to the scientific community. TOC:Preface.- S.P. Sethi's curriculum vitae.- TCP-AQM Interaction: periodic optimization via linear programming.- Explicit solutions of linear quadratic differential games.- Extended generators of Markov processes and applications.- Control of manufacturing systems with delayed inspection and limited capacity.- Admission control in the present of priorities: a sample path approach.- Some bilinear stochastic equations with a fractional Brownian motion.- Two types of risk.- Optimal production policy in a stochastic manufacturing system.- A stochastic control approach to optimal climate policies.- Characterization of just-in-time sequencing via apportionment.- Linear stochastic equations in a Hilbert space with a fractional Brownian motion.- Hedging options with transaction costs.- Supply portfolio selection and execution with demand information updates.- A regime-switching model for European options.- Pricing American put options using stochastic optimization methods.- Optimal portfolio application with double-uniform jump model.- Index.

This volume is dedicated to Professor Arto Salomaa on the occasion of his 60th birthday. The 32 invited papers contained in the volume were presented at the festive colloquium, organized by Hermann Maurer at Graz, Austria, in June 1994; the contributing authors are well-known scientists with special relations to Professor Salomaa as friends, Ph.D. students, or co-authors. The volume reflects the broad spectrum of Professor Salomaa's research interests in theoretical computer science and mathematics with contributions particularly to automata theory, formal language theory, mathematical logic, computability, and cryptography. The appendix presents Professor Salomaa's curriculum vitae and lists the more than 300 papers and 9 books he published.
