Undergraduate students of engineering, science, and mathematics must quickly master a variety of mathematical methods, although many of these students do not have strong mathematics backgrounds. In this well-received book, now in its second edition, the authors use their extensive experience with diverse groups of students to provide an accessible introduction to mathematical techniques. They start at the elementary level and proceed to cover the full range of topics typically encountered by beginning students:
· Analytic geometry, vector algebra, vector fields (div and curl), differentiation, and integration.
· Complex numbers, matrix operations, and linear systems of equations.
· Differential equations and first-order linear systems, functions of more than one variable, double integrals, and line integrals.
· Laplace transforms, Fourier series and Fourier transforms.
· Probability and statistics.
Incorporating many suggestions from readers, this new edition has expanded discussions of vectors and new chapters on Fourier series and on probability and statistics. The emphasis throughout is on understanding concepts through well-chosen examples, and the book includes over 500 fully worked problems. As far as is possible chapter topics are self-contained so that a student only needing to master certain techniques can omit others without trouble. The generously illustrated text also includes simple numerical processes which lead to examples and projects for computation (particularly with Mathematica), and contains a large number of exercises (with answers) to reinforce the material. These features combine to make this book an ideal starting point for students entering the sciences.

Widely acclaimed as America's greatest living film director, Martin Scorsese is also, some argue, the pre-eminent Italian American artist. Although he has treated various subjects in over three decades, his most sustained filmmaking and the core of his achievement consists of five films on Italian American subjects - Who's That Knocking at My Door?, Mean Streets, Raging Bull, GoodFellas, and Casino - as well as the documentary Italianamerican. In Gangster Priest Robert Casillo examines these films in the context of the society, religion, culture, and history of Southern Italy, from which the majority of Italian Americans, including Scorsese, derive.Casillo argues that these films cannot be fully appreciated either thematically or formally without understanding the various facets of Italian American ethnicity, as well as the nature of Italian American cinema and the difficulties facing assimilating third-generation artists. Forming a unified whole, Scorsese's Italian American films offer what Casillo views as a prolonged meditation on the immigrant experience, the relationship between Italian America and Southern Italy, the conflicts between the ethnic generations, and the formation and development of Italian American ethnicity (and thus identity) on American soil through the generations. Raised as a Catholic and deeply imbued with Catholic values, Scorsese also deals with certain forms of Southern Italian vernacular religion, which have left their imprint not only on Scorsese himself but also on the spiritually tormented characters of his Italian American films. Casillo also shows how Scorsese interrogates the Southern Italian code of masculine honour in his exploration of the Italian American underworld or Mafia, and through his implicitly Catholic optic, discloses its thoroughgoing and longstanding opposition to Christianity.Bringing a wealth of scholarship and insight into Scorsese's work, Casillo's study will captivate readers interested in the director's magist

This new edition has been expanded to contain an introduction to areas of current importance such as bifurcation, structural stability and chaotic behavior. Other topics include linearization, perturbation theory, subharmonics, stability, the existence of limit cycles, and Poincaré maps. The text is concerned with practical applications and includes over 400 examples and exercises.

An ideal companion to the new 4th Edition of Nonlinear Ordinary Differential Equations by Jordan and Smith (OUP, 2007), this text contains over 500 problems and fully-worked solutions in nonlinear differential equations. With 272 figures and diagrams, subjects covered include phase diagrams in the plane, classification of equilibrium points, geometry of the phase plane, perturbation methods, forced oscillations, stability, Mathieu's equation, Liapunov methods, bifurcations and manifolds, homoclinic bifurcation, and Melnikov's method.
The problems are of variable difficulty; some are routine questions, others are longer and expand on concepts discussed in Nonlinear Ordinary Differential Equations 4th Edition, and in most cases can be adapted for coursework or self-study.
Both texts cover a wide variety of applications while keeping mathematical prequisites to a minimum making these an ideal resource for students and lecturers in engineering, mathematics and the sciences.
