Applied differential geometry. A modern introduction by Vladimir G Ivancevic

By Vladimir G Ivancevic

This graduate-level monographic textbook treats utilized differential geometry from a contemporary clinical standpoint. Co-authored through the originator of the area s prime human movement simulator Human Biodynamics Engine , a fancy, 264-DOF bio-mechanical method, modeled via differential-geometric instruments this can be the 1st booklet that mixes sleek differential geometry with a large spectrum of purposes, from sleek mechanics and physics, through nonlinear keep an eye on, to biology and human sciences. The publication is designed for a two-semester path, which supplies mathematicians a number of functions for his or her thought and physicists, in addition to different scientists and engineers, a robust thought underlying their versions.

During this e-book, we examine theoretical and useful features of computing tools for mathematical modelling of nonlinear structures. a few computing options are thought of, akin to tools of operator approximation with any given accuracy; operator interpolation options together with a non-Lagrange interpolation; equipment of method illustration topic to constraints linked to options of causality, reminiscence and stationarity; equipment of approach illustration with an accuracy that's the top inside of a given type of types; equipment of covariance matrix estimation;methods for low-rank matrix approximations; hybrid equipment in keeping with a mixture of iterative strategies and top operator approximation; andmethods for info compression and filtering below situation clear out version may still fulfill regulations linked to causality and varieties of reminiscence.
