Talks from the International Conference on Computers and Mathematics held July 29-Aug. 1, 1986, Stanford U. Some are focused on the past and future roles of computers as a research tool in such areas as number theory, analysis, special functions, combinatorics, algebraic geometry, topology, physics,

On the solution of an optimal search problem with an exponential detection function. Covers one- and two-sided detection problems by furnishing continuous and discret time strategies; examines two-sided search strategies with solutions in hide and seek games in many discrete and continuous bounded

This volume of new research papers marks the 20th anniversary of the New York Number Theory Seminar (NYNTS). Since 1982, NYNTS has presented a range of research in number theory and related fields of mathematics, from physics to geometry to combinatorics and computer science. The speakers have included Field medalists as well as promising lesser known mathematicians whose theorems are significant. The papers presented here are all previously unpublished.

This volume presents a highly contemporary report on lyssaviruses, a medically relevant group of rhabdoviruses. An internationally renowned selection of authors provides a unique perspective on the basic and applied aspects of lyssaviruses biology, from the time of Pasteur into the year 2000 and beyond. Included are all relevant topics, such as epizootiology, taxonomy, molecular biology, pathogenesis, diagnosis and control of this type of virus. This book is a "must-read" account for all virologists, infectious disease specialists, veterinarians, and wildlife workers who will obtain a glimpse of modern methods of research used to understand and control these significant global pathogens.

This volume consists of a collection of papers devoted primarily to transcendental number theory and diophantine approximations written by the author. Most of the materials included in this volume are English translations of the author's Russian manuscripts, extensively rewritten and brought entirely up to date. These papers and other papers included in this volume were available to specialists in manuscript form, but this is the first time that they have been collected and published.Though the earlier papers have been preserved in the form in which they were prepared initially, the volume is organized in such a way as to reflect recent progress and to allow readers to follow recent developments in the field. As an introductory guide to the volume, the author included an expanded and updated text of his invited address on his work on the theory of transcendental numbers to the 1978 International Congress of Mathematicians in Helsinki. The appendix contains a paper on the extremality of certain multidimensional manifolds prepared by A. I. Vinogradov and the author in 1976. Chudnovsky received a MacArthur Foundation Fellowship in 1981.

This book documents the history of pi from the dawn of mathematical time to the present. One of the beauties of the literature on pi is that it allows for the inclusion of very modern, yet accessible, mathematics. The articles on pi collected herein fall into various classes. First and foremost there is a selection from the mathematical and computational literature of four millennia. There is also a variety of historical studies on the cultural significance of the number. Additionally, there is a selection of pieces that are anecdotal, fanciful, or simply amusing. For this new edition, the authors have updated the original material while adding new material of historical and cultural interest. There is a substantial exposition of the recent history of the computation of digits of pi, a discussion of the normality of the distribution of the digits, and new translations of works by Viete and Huygen.

The New York Number Theory Seminar was organized in 1982 to provide a forum for the presentation and discussion of recent advances in higher arithmetic and its applications. Papers included in this volume are based on the lectures presented by their authors at the Seminar at the Graduate Center of C.U.N.Y. in 1985-88. Papers in the volume cover a wide spectrum of number theoretic topics ranging from additive number theory and diophantine approximations to algebraic number theory and relations with algebraic geometry and topology.

Here is an unsurpassed resource-important accounts of a variety of dynamic systems topicsrelated to number theory. Twelve distinguished mathematicians present a rare complete analyticsolution of a geodesic quantum problem on a negatively curved surface ... and explicitdetermination of modular function growth near a real point .. . applications of number theoryto dynamical systems and applications of mathematical physics to number theory . ..tributes to the often-unheralded pioneers in the field ... an examination of completely integrableand exactly solvable physical models .. . and much more!Classical and Quantum Models and Arithmetic Problems is certainly a major source of information,advancing the studies of number theorists, algebraists, and mathematical physicistsinterested in complex mathematical properties of quantum field theory, statistical mechanics,and dynamic systems. Moreover, the volume is a superior source of supplementary readingfor graduate-level courses in dynamic systems and application of number theory .
