Download E-books Improving Primary Mathematics Education, Teaching and Learning: Research for Development in Resource-Constrained Contexts (Palgrave Studies in Excellence and Equity in Global Education) PDF

This booklet makes a speciality of tips to increase the educating and studying of fundamental point arithmetic schooling inside resource-constrained contexts. It builds on huge numeracy initiatives inside of South Africa which communicate to broader, worldwide matters and spotlight how learn and improvement not just permits one to fulfill moral imperatives but additionally discover how additional interventions could be constructed. instructor and learn groups needs to interact to create collectively invaluable relationships and determine a cohesive figuring out of the necessities of basic arithmetic schooling.

Download E-books Geometries on Surfaces (Encyclopedia of Mathematics and its Applications, 84) PDF

By Burkard Polster, G√ľnter Steinke

One century after Hilbert built the 1st instance of a non-classical affine airplane, this ebook goals to summarize the entire significant effects approximately geometries on surfaces. appearing either as a reference and a monograph, the authors have incorporated particular sections on what's often called good as outlining difficulties that stay to be solved. There are sections on classical geometries, equipment for developing non-classical geometries and classifications and characterizations of geometries. This paintings is said to a bunch of different fields together with approximation, convexity, differential geometry topology and lots of extra. This publication will attract scholars, researchers and academics operating in geometry or anybody of the various linked components defined above.

Download E-books Rational Approximations and Orthogonality (Translations of Mathematical Monographs) PDF

By E. M. Nikishin and V. N. Sorokin

This publication provides a variety of difficulties hooked up with rational approximations of numbers and analytic capabilities. those difficulties contact on many themes in modern research, resembling analytic services, orthogonal polynomials, spectral idea of operators, and power idea. encouraged by means of the improvement of the speculation of Pade approximants and the present software of this thought in similar disciplines, the authors current an creation to this circle of principles. The booklet is meant for college kids and destiny researchers attracted to functionality idea and quantity concept.

Download E-books Index Theory, Determinants and Torsion for Open Manifolds PDF

By Jurgen Eichhorn

For closed manifolds, there's a hugely elaborated idea of number-valued invariants, connected to the underlying manifold, buildings and differential operators. On open manifolds, the majority of this fails, aside from a few targeted periods. The objective of this monograph is to set up for open manifolds, buildings and differential operators an appropriate idea of number-valued relative invariants. this can be of serious use within the thought of moduli areas for nonlinear partial differential equations and mathematical physics. The publication is self-contained: particularly, it comprises an overview of the mandatory instruments from nonlinear Sobolev research.
