A New Approach to Magnetohydrodynamic Stability: I. a Practical Stability Concept (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from A New Approach to Magnetohydrodynamic Stability: I. A Practical Stability Concept

The problem of magnetohydrodynamic stability, in particular of the diffuse linear pinch, is one of the most extensively investigated subjects in plasma physics. The subject has recently found renewed interest, mainly because of its evident implications for plasma confinement experiments aiming at thermonuclear fusion. An understanding of the basic features involved in stability is clearly crucial to further progress in this field. In this and the accompanying paper we aim at a contribution towards such under standing.

Thomas’ Calculus

Thomas
Thomas’ Calculus, Fourteenth Edition, introduces students to the intrinsic beauty of calculus and the power of its applications. For more than half a century, this text has been revered for its clear and precise explanations, thoughtfully chosen examples, superior figures and
time-tested exercise sets.
Features
Strong exercise sets feature a great breadth of problems progressing from skills problems to applied and theoretical problems—to encourage students to think about and practice the concepts until they achieve mastery.
Complete and precise multivariable coverage enhances the connections of multivariable ideas with their single-variable analogues studied earlier in the book.
New to this edition
Updated graphics emphasize clear visualization and mathematical correctness.
New examples and figures have been added throughout all chapters, based on user feedback.
New types of homework exercises, including many geometric in nature, have been added to provide different perspectives and approaches to each topic.
Short URLs have been added to the historical margin notes, allowing students to navigate directly to online information.
New annotations within examples guide the student through the problem solution and emphasize that each step in a mathematical argument is rigorously justified.

Excerpt from Introductory Course in Differential Equations: For Students in Classical and Engineering Colleges

In many cases in which points are discussed in the brief manner necessary in a work of this kind, references are given where fuller explanations and further developments may be found. These references are made, whenever possi ble, to sources easily accessible to an ordinary student, and especially to the standard treatises, in English, of Boole, Forsyth, and Johnson.

Hyperbolic Functions (Classic Reprint)

Hyperbolic Functions (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Hyperbolic Functions

The volume called Higher Mathematics, the first edition of which was published in 1896, contained eleven chapters by eleven authors, each chapter being independent of the others, but all supposing the reader to have at least a mathematical training equivalent to that given in classical and engineering colleges. The publication of that volume is now discontinued and the chapters are issued in separate form. In these reissues it will generally be found that the monographs are enlarged by additional articles or appendices which either amplify the former presentation or record recent advances. This plan of publication has been arranged in order to meet the demand of teachers and the convenience of classes, but it is also thought that it may prove advantageous to readers in special lines of mathematical literature.

It is the intention of the publishers and editors to add other monographs to the series from time to time, if the call for the same seems to warrant it. Among the topics which are under consideration are those of elliptic functions, the theory of num bers, the group theory, the calculus of variations, and non Euclidean geometry; possibly also monographs on branches of astronomy, mechanics, and mathematical physics may be included. It is the hope of the editors that this form of publication may tend to promote mathematical study and research over a wider field than that which the former volume has occupied.
