Volume II Probability Theory and Mathematical Statistics
Author: A.N. Shiryayev
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
The creative work of Andrei N. Kolmogorov is exceptionally wide-ranging. In his studies on trigonometric and orthogonal series, the theory of measure and integral, mathematical logic, approximation theory, geometry, topology, functional analysis, classical mechanics, ergodic theory, superposition of functions, and in formation theory, he solved many conceptual and fundamental problems and posed new questions which gave rise to a great deal of further research. Kolmogorov is one of the founders of the Soviet school of probability theory, mathematical statistics, and the theory of turbulence. In these areas he obtained a number of central results, with many applications to mechanics, geophysics, linguistics and biology, among other subjects. This edition includes Kolmogorov's most important papers on mathematics and the natural sciences. It does not include his philosophical and pedagogical studies, his articles written for the "Bolshaya Sovetskaya Entsiklopediya", his papers on prosody and applications of mathematics or his publications on general questions. The material of this edition was selected and compiled by Kolmogorov himself. The first volume consists of papers on mathematics and also on turbulence and classical mechanics. The second volume is devoted to probability theory and mathematical statistics. The focus of the third volume is on information theory and the theory of algorithms.
The Rise and Fall of the American Railway Union, 1892–1896
Author: Tim Davenport
Publisher: Haymarket Books
Category: Political Science
Tim Davenport and David Walters have extracted the essential core of Debs’s life work, illustrating his intellectual journey from conservative editor of the magazine of a racially segregated railway brotherhood to his role as the public face and outstanding voice of social revolution in early twentieth-century America. Well over 1,000 Debs documents will be republished as part of this monumental project, the vast majority seeing print again for the first time since the date of their original publication. Eugene V. Debs (1855–1926) was a trade unionist, magazine editor, and public orator widely regarded as one of the most important figures in the history of American socialism.
These eight volumes contain the works of Mary Shelley and include introductions and prefatory notes to each volume. Included in this edition are "Frankenstein" (1818), "Matilda" ((1819), "Valperga" (1823), "The Last Man" (1826), "Perkin Warbeck" (1830) and "Lodore" (1835).
This collection of the correspondence of Mao Zedong during the period 1956 to 1957 explores the question of legitimatizing the leadership of the CCP, the pace of the socialist transformation of China's economy, and the issue of the divergence of ideological opinion over the strategy of revolution.
Techniques for generating orthogonal polynomials numerically have appeared only recently, within the last 30 or so years.?Orthogonal Polynomials in MATLAB: Exercises and Solutions?describes these techniques and related applications, all supported by MATLAB programs, and presents them in a unique format of exercises and solutions designed by the author to stimulate participation. Important computational problems in the physical sciences are included as models for readers to solve their own problems.?
Volume II: Information and Economic Analysis: Applications to Capital, Labor, and Product Markets
Author: Joseph E. Stiglitz
Publisher: Oxford University Press
Category: Business & Economics
The second in a series of six volumes containing a selection of Joseph Stiglitz's most important and widely cited work. Volume I set out the basic concepts underlying the economics of information. Volume II extends these concepts and applies them to a number of different settings in labour, capital, and product markets

Collected here are the major works of Joseph Stalin in English along with several less prominent works that either help put things in context or have other historical or political value. We trust that the reader will be satisfied with this collection.
First presented as Lulu e books, Stephen Mead has collected the best of his award winning poetry/art hybrids here for the first time in printed form. From the evocative expressionism of We Are More Than Our Wounds, to the lush black and white film iconography of Drag, these spiritual journeys of text and paint breathe from their pages to remain with the viewer long after the book is closed. Over one hundred color images, makes for a lovely coffee table book. Note: This is the internationally distributed soft cover version of the photobook prototype, with a spine containing author and title for easy filing.

Over the last four decades, Phillip Griffiths has been a central figure in mathematics. During this time, he made crucial contributions in several fields, including complex analysis, algebraic geometry, and differential systems. His books and papers are distinguished by a remarkably lucid style that invites the reader to understand not only the subject at hand, but also the connections among seemingly unrelated areas of mathematics. Even today, many of Griffiths' papers are used as a standard source on a subject.Another important feature of Griffiths' writings is that they often bring together classical and modern mathematics. The four parts of Selected Works - Analytic Geometry, Algebraic Geometry, Variations of Hodge Structures, and Differential Systems - are organized according to the subject matter and are supplemented by Griffiths' brief, but extremely illuminating, personal reflections on the mathematical content and the times in which they were produced. Griffiths' Selected Works provide the reader with a panoramic view of important and exciting mathematics during the second half of the 20th century.
