First edition, pp xii, 323, appendix, bibliography, index.Most books on finite elements are devoted either to mathematical theory or to engineering applicationsbut not to both. Finite Elements: An Introduction to the Method and Error Estimation, by Ivo Babuska, John J. Whiteman, and Theofanis Strouboulis, seeks to bridge this gap by presenting the main theoretical ideas of the finite element method and the analysis of its errors in an accessible way. S31.

Bermudez, Jose Luis. Decision Theory and Rationality. Oxford, 2009. 2009 1st Edition Hardcover As New Book Hardcover, As New. First edition, pp 189, bibliography, index. The concept of rationality is a common thread through the human and social sciences  from political science to philosophy, from economics to sociology, and from management science to decision analysis. But what counts as rational action and rational behavior? José Luis Bermúdez explores decision theory as a theory of rationality. S31.

Kubin, Ladislas P. Dislocations, Mesoscale Simulations and Plastic Flow. Oxford University Press, 2013. 2013 1st Edition Hardcover Fine Book Hardback in FINE condition. No dustwrapper issued. First edition, pp307, with b&w illustrations and diagrams, bibliography and index. S21.Oxford series on materials modelling. In the past twenty years, new experimental approaches, improved models and progress in simulation techniques brought new insights into longstanding issues concerning dislocationbased plasticity in crystalline materials. During this period, threedimensional dislocation dynamics simulations appeared and reached maturity. Their objectives are to unravel the relation between individual and collective dislocation processes at the mesoscale, to establish connections with atomscale studies of dislocation core properties and to bridge, in combination with modelling, the gap between defect properties and phenomenological continuum models for plastic flow. Dislocation dynamics simulations are becoming accessible to a wide range of users. This book presents to students and researchers in materials science and mechanical engineering a comprehensive coverage of the physical body of knowledge on which they are based. It includes classical studies, which are too often ignored, recent experimental and theoretical advances, as well as a discussion of selected applications on various topics.

The standard starting point in cosmology is the cosmological principle; the assumption that the universe is spatially homogeneous and isotropic. After imposing this assumption, the only freedom left, as far as the geometry is concerned, is the choice of one out of three permissible spatial geometries, and one scalar function of time. Combining the cosmological principle with an appropriate description of the matter leads to the standard models. It is worth noting that these models yield quite a successful description of our universe. However, even though the universe may, or may not, be almost spatially homogeneous and isotropic, it is clear that the cosmological principle is not exactly satisfied. This leads to several questions. The most natural one concerns stability: given initial data corresponding to an expanding model of the standard type, do small perturbations give rise to solutions that are similar to the future? Another question concerns the shape of the universe: what are the restrictions if we only assume the universe to appear almost spatially homogeneous and isotropic to every observer? The main purpose of the book is to address these questions. However, to begin with, it is necessary to develop the general theory of the Cauchy problem for the EinsteinVlasov equations. In order to to make the results accessible to researchers who are not mathematicians, but who are familiar with general relativity, the book contains an extensive prologue putting the results into a more general context.

Sangwin, Chris. Computer Aided Assessment of Mathematics. Oxford, 2013. 9780199660353 2013 0199660352 / 9780199660353 1st Edition Hardcover As New Book Hardcover, As New. First edition, pp ix, 185, bibliography, index. Assessment is a key driver in mathematics education. This book examines computer aided assessment (CAA) of mathematics in which computer algebra systems (CAS) are used to establish the mathematical properties of expressions provided by students in response to questions. In order to automate such assessment, the relevant criteria must be encoded and, in articulating precisely the desired criteria, the teacher needs to think very carefully about the goals of the task.
