### Introduction to Information Theory and Data Compression

#### 2nd Edition

An effective blend of carefully explained theory and practical applications, this text imparts the fundamentals of both information theory and data compression. Although the two topics are related, this unique text allows either topic to be presented independently, and it was specifically designed…

Chapman and Hall/CRC*Applied Mathematics*### Spectral Computations for Bounded Operators

#### 1st Edition

Exact eigenvalues, eigenvectors, and principal vectors of operators with infinite dimensional ranges can rarely be found. Therefore, one must approximate such operators by finite rank operators, then solve the original eigenvalue problem approximately. Serving as both an outstanding text for…

Chapman and Hall/CRC*Applied Mathematics*### Robust Computational Techniques for Boundary Layers

#### 1st Edition

Current standard numerical methods are of little use in solving mathematical problems involving boundary layers. In Robust Computational Techniques for Boundary Layers, the authors construct numerical methods for solving problems involving differential equations that have non-smooth solutions with…

Chapman and Hall/CRC*Applied Mathematics*### Mathematical Models in Boundary Layer Theory

#### 1st Edition

Since Prandtl first suggested it in 1904, boundary layer theory has become a fundamental aspect of fluid dynamics. Although a vast literature exists for theoretical and experimental aspects of the theory, for the most part, mathematical studies can be found only in separate, scattered articles.…

Chapman and Hall/CRC*Applied Mathematics*### Variational Theories for Liquid Crystals

#### 1st Edition

Essentially there are two variational theories of liquid crystals explained in this book. The theory put forward by Zocher, Oseen and Frank is classical, while that proposed by Ericksen is newer in its mathematical formulation although it has been postulated in the physical literature for the past…

Chapman and Hall/CRC*Applied Mathematics*### Mathematical Modeling of Inelastic Deformation

#### 1st Edition

Mathematical Modeling of Inelastic Deformation details the mathematical modeling of the inelastic behavior of engineering materials. The authors use a thermodynamic approach to the subject and focus on crystalline materials, but not to the exclusion of macro-moleular solids. Within a unified theory…

Chapman and Hall/CRC*Applied Mathematics*### Bivectors and Waves in Mechanics and Optics

#### 1st Edition

Bivectors occur naturally in the description of elliptically polarized homogeneous and inhomogeneous plane waves. The description of a homogeneous plane wave generally involves a vector (the unit vector along the propagation direction) and a bivbector (the complex amplitude of the wave).…
