Mean Value Theorems and Functional Equations

Author: Prasanna Sahoo
Publisher: World Scientific
ISBN: 9810235445
Release Date: 1998
Genre: Mathematics

This book takes a comprehensive look at mean value theorems and their connection with functional equations. Besides the traditional Lagrange and Cauchy mean value theorems, it covers the Pompeiu and the Flett mean value theorems as well as extension to higher dimensions and the complex plane. Furthermore the reader is introduced to the field of functional equations through equations that arise in connection with the many mean value theorems discussed.

Introduction to Functional Equations

Author: Prasanna K. Sahoo
Publisher: CRC Press
ISBN: 9781439841167
Release Date: 2011-02-08
Genre: Mathematics

Introduction to Functional Equations grew out of a set of class notes from an introductory graduate level course at the University of Louisville. This introductory text communicates an elementary exposition of valued functional equations where the unknown functions take on real or complex values. In order to make the presentation as manageable as possible for students from a variety of disciplines, the book chooses not to focus on functional equations where the unknown functions take on values on algebraic structures such as groups, rings, or fields. However, each chapter includes sections highlighting various developments of the main equations treated in that chapter. For advanced students, the book introduces functional equations in abstract domains like semigroups, groups, and Banach spaces. Functional equations covered include: Cauchy Functional Equations and Applications The Jensen Functional Equation Pexider's Functional Equation Quadratic Functional Equation D'Alembert Functional Equation Trigonometric Functional Equations Pompeiu Functional Equation Hosszu Functional Equation Davison Functional Equation Abel Functional Equation Mean Value Type Functional Equations Functional Equations for Distance Measures The innovation of solving functional equations lies in finding the right tricks for a particular equation. Accessible and rooted in current theory, methods, and research, this book sharpens mathematical competency and prepares students of mathematics and engineering for further work in advanced functional equations.

Stability of Functional Equations in Random Normed Spaces

Author: Yeol Je Cho
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 9781461484776
Release Date: 2013-08-27
Genre: Mathematics

This book discusses the rapidly developing subject of mathematical analysis that deals primarily with stability of functional equations in generalized spaces. The fundamental problem in this subject was proposed by Stan M. Ulam in 1940 for approximate homomorphisms. The seminal work of Donald H. Hyers in 1941 and that of Themistocles M. Rassias in 1978 have provided a great deal of inspiration and guidance for mathematicians worldwide to investigate this extensive domain of research. The book presents a self-contained survey of recent and new results on topics including basic theory of random normed spaces and related spaces; stability theory for new function equations in random normed spaces via fixed point method, under both special and arbitrary t-norms; stability theory of well-known new functional equations in non-Archimedean random normed spaces; and applications in the class of fuzzy normed spaces. It contains valuable results on stability in random normed spaces, and is geared toward both graduate students and research mathematicians and engineers in a broad area of interdisciplinary research.

Functional Equations Inequalities and Applications

Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 9789401702256
Release Date: 2013-03-09
Genre: Mathematics

Functional Equations, Inequalities and Applications provides an extensive study of several important equations and inequalities, useful in a number of problems in mathematical analysis. Subjects dealt with include the generalized Cauchy functional equation, the Ulam stability theory in the geometry of partial differential equations, stability of a quadratic functional equation in Banach modules, functional equations and mean value theorems, isometric mappings, functional inequalities of iterative type, related to a Cauchy functional equation, the median principle for inequalities and applications, Hadamard and Dragomir-Agarwal inequalities, the Euler formulae and convex functions and approximate algebra homomorphisms. Also included are applications to some problems of pure and applied mathematics. This book will be of particular interest to mathematicians and graduate students whose work involves functional equations, inequalities and applications.

More Calculus of a Single Variable

Author: Peter R. Mercer
Publisher: Springer
ISBN: 9781493919260
Release Date: 2014-10-17
Genre: Mathematics

This book goes beyond the basics of a first course in calculus to reveal the power and richness of the subject. Standard topics from calculus — such as the real numbers, differentiation and integration, mean value theorems, the exponential function — are reviewed and elucidated before digging into a deeper exploration of theory and applications, such as the AGM inequality, convexity, the art of integration, and explicit formulas for π. Further topics and examples are introduced through a plethora of exercises that both challenge and delight the reader. While the reader is thereby exposed to the many threads of calculus, the coherence of the subject is preserved throughout by an emphasis on patterns of development, of proof and argumentation, and of generalization. More Calculus of a Single Variable is suitable as a text for a course in advanced calculus, as a supplementary text for courses in analysis, and for self-study by students, instructors, and, indeed, all connoisseurs of ingenious calculations.

The Goldbach Conjecture

Author: Yuan Wang
Publisher: World Scientific
ISBN: 9812776605
Release Date: 2002
Genre: Mathematics

This book provides a detailed description of a most important unsolved mathematical problem OCo the Goldbach conjecture. Raised in 1742 in a letter from Goldbach to Euler, this conjecture attracted the attention of many mathematical geniuses. Several great achievements were made, but only until the 1920''s. The book gives an exposition of these results and their impact on mathematics, particularly, number theory. It also presents (partly or wholly) selections from important literature, so that readers can get a full picture of the conjecture."
