Applied Mathematics for Business, Economics and the Social Sciences by Frank S. Budnick
Offering comprehensive treatment of selected topics in finite mathematics and calculus, the fourth edition of this text provides an informal, non-intimidating presentation of the mathematical principles, techniques, and applications most useful to students in business, economics, and the life and social sciences. Oriented towards the needs of the student, the text retains such pedagogical features as "Algebra Flashbacks", "Notes to the Student", "Points for Thought or Discussion", and an extensive array of problems and applications to support the learning process. In the new edition a new chapter entitled "Some Preliminaries" provides a smooth transition from algebra to applied mathematics, and a new chapter on exponentials and logarithms has been added. Actual data from real applications has been included to allow students to see the connection between mathematics and the world around them. There is a new design to provide visual reinforcement, more preliminary material, new motivational scenarios, an increased orientation towards using the computer as a tool for performing mathematical analysis and increased emphasis on the nature of estimation in mathematics. Also available to accompany this text are an "Instructor's Manual" (ISBN 0-07-008903-5), a "Student Solutions Manual" (ISBN 0-07-008904-3) and a "Printed Test Bank" (ISBN 0-07-008905-1).

Comment on Applied Mathematics for Business, Economics and the Social Sciences by Frank S. Budnick
Scaling by Gary M. Maranell
Provides description of the major processes for developing measurement scales. This book presents a series of general articles that deal in philosophic terms with the problem of measurement, with what is meant by measurement and scaling as well as the notions underlying the process of measuring.
Engineering Mathematics by John Bird
Mathematics is a key element in determining success for the Edexcel BTEC National Engineering courses. Including information for the 2010 BTEC Nationals in Engineering syllabus, this book covers the main elements of mathematics in the core, mechanical and Electrical/ Electronic Units. It contains thousands of worked examples and revision tests.
Higher Topos Theory by Jacob Lurie
Higher category theory is generally regarded as technical and forbidding, but part of it is considerably more tractable: the theory of infinity-categories, higher categories in which all higher morphisms are assumed to be invertible. This title presents the foundations of this theory.
Optimization Algorithms on Matrix Manifolds by P.-A. Absil» View more books like these...
Many problems in the sciences and engineering can be rephrased as optimization problems on matrix search spaces endowed with a so-called manifold structure. This book shows how to exploit the special structure of such problems to develop efficient numerical algorithms. It is of interest to applied mathematicians, and computer scientists.
