This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1879 Excerpt: ...obliged to give up preaching regularly, he engaged in mercantile business in Sherburne. He however preached occasionally in the vicinity, and in this way spent the remainder of his life. He died in Sherburne, November 8, 1843, at the age of sixty years, and was buried in the Episcopal church-yard in that place. He had been married twice. Mr. Rexford was a man of ability; a fine reader; very critical, and gave much attention to elocution. At family devotions he often compelled members of his household to read again and again their verses of Scripture, because they were not read properly. An error in pronunciation or grammar was unpardonable. Being very fond of theological discussion, he rendered himself at times rather offensive to those with whom he conversed; and yet he was very kind-hearted, and his memory is lovingly cherished by those who were most intimate with him. He was a man of varied learning, and could converse on almost any topic with fluency. He was always ready with a joke or anecdote, and was very entertaining in social gatherings. (Records Chen. Co. Bible Society and Chen. Presbty. Letters of Mrs. C. M. Wells, H. T. Dunham, Rev. J. Chambers, etc.) REV. HORACE PUBLIUS BOGUE, D. D. Mr. Bogue was born at Winchester, Litchfield County, Conn., December 22, 1796, and was a son of Rev. Publius Virgilius Bogue, who in the early years of this century was very well known and respected in Central New York. The father and grandfather both were graduates from Yale College, and the grandfather was also a clergyman. About 1814 the father--Rev. P. V. Bogue--moved from Georgia, Franklin County, Vt., whither he had gone from Vernon Centre, Oneida County, N. Y., fourteen years before, on account of ill health, to Sauquoit. Oneida County, N. Y., and became Past...

› Find signed collectible books: 'Matrix Analysis'
Linear algebra and matrix theory are fundamental tools in mathematical and physical science, as well as fertile fields for research. This new edition of the acclaimed text presents results of both classic and recent matrix analysis using canonical forms as a unifying theme, and demonstrates their importance in a variety of applications. The authors have thoroughly revised, updated, and expanded on the first edition. The book opens with an extended summary of useful concepts and facts and includes numerous new topics and features, such as: - New sections on the singular value and CS decompositions - New applications of the Jordan canonical form - A new section on the Weyr canonical form - Expanded treatments of inverse problems and of block matrices - A central role for the Von Neumann trace theorem - A new appendix with a modern list of canonical forms for a pair of Hermitian matrices and for a symmetric-skew symmetric pair - Expanded index with more than 3,500 entries for easy reference - More than 1,100 problems and exercises, many with hints, to reinforce understanding and develop auxiliary themes such as finite-dimensional quantum systems, the compound and adjugate matrices, and the Loewner ellipsoid - A new appendix provides a collection of problem-solving hints.

› Find signed collectible books: 'Middle Passage'
In this savage parable of the African American experience, Rutherford Calhoun, a newly freed slave eking out a living in New Orleans in 1830, hops aboard a square rigger to evade the prim Boston schoolteacher who wants to marry him. But the Republic turns out to be a slave clipper bound for Africa. Calhoun, whose master educated him as a humanist, becomes the captain's cabin boy, and though he hates himself for acting as a lackey, he's able to help the African slaves recently taken aboard to stage a revolt before the rowdy, drunken crew can spring a mutiny. Middle Passage won the 1990 National Book Award.

Given a partial symmetric matrix, the positive definite completion problem asks if the unspecified entries in the matrix can be chosen so as to make the resulting matrix positive definite. Applications include probability and statistics, image enhancement, systems engineering, geophysics, and mathematical programming. The positive definite completion problem can also be viewed as a mechanism for addressing a fundamental problem in Euclidean geometry: which potential geometric configurations of vectors (i.e., configurations with angles between some vectors specified) are realizable in a Euclidean space. The positions of the specified entries in a partial matrix are naturally described by a graph. The question of existence of a positive definite completion was previously solved completely for the restrictive class of chordal graphs and this work solves the problem for the class of cycle completable graphs, a significant generalization of chordal graphs. These are the graphs for which knowledge of completability for induced cycles (and cliques) implies completability of partial symmetric matrices with the given graph.

› Find signed collectible books: 'Resources for Teaching Linear Algebra (MAA Notes)'
Series: MAA Notes
A valuable resource for anyone teaching linear algebra. This book argues that the teaching of elementary linear algebra can be made more effective by emphasizing applications, exposition, and pedagogy.
= Relevant applications serve as motivation for students and as sources of stimulating and challenging problems.
=Effective exposition that finds the right way to communicate concepts is especially important in the teaching of linear algebra.
=Attention to pedagogy that takes into account how students learn, helps to increase student understanding of the material.
Contains a core syllabus for the first course in linear algebra, and the thoughts of mathematics faculty members who have taught linear algebra using these recommendations.

› Find signed collectible books: 'Topics in Matrix Analysis'
Building on the foundations of its predecessor volume, Matrix Analysis, this book treats in detail several topics with important applications and of special mathematical interest in matrix theory not included in the previous text. These topics include the field of values, stable matrices and inertia, singular values, matrix equations and Kronecker products, Hadamard products, and matrices and functions. The authors assume a background in elementary linear algebra and knowledge of rudimentary analytical concepts. The book should be welcomed by graduate students and researchers in a variety of mathematical fields both as an advanced text and as a modern reference work.

Totally nonnegative matrices arise in a remarkable variety of mathematical applications. This book is a comprehensive and self-contained study of the essential theory of totally nonnegative matrices, defined by the nonnegativity of all subdeterminants. It explores methodological background, historical highlights of key ideas, and specialized topics.
The book uses classical and ad hoc tools, but a unifying theme is the elementary bidiagonal factorization, which has emerged as the single most important tool for this particular class of matrices. Recent work has shown that bidiagonal factorizations may be viewed in a succinct combinatorial way, leading to many deep insights. Despite slow development, bidiagonal factorizations, along with determinants, now provide the dominant methodology for understanding total nonnegativity. The remainder of the book treats important topics, such as recognition of totally nonnegative or totally positive matrices, variation diminution, spectral properties, determinantal inequalities, Hadamard products, and completion problems associated with totally nonnegative or totally positive matrices. The book also contains sample applications, an up-to-date bibliography, a glossary of all symbols used, an index, and related references.
