The first one should be at anyones desk. It is with Apostols books are the

back bone of analysis. In England there used tobe a test Tripose ( not sure

if it is still there or not ). It is based on rapid fire Math, Physics, and

Chemistry. It is to enter good university with scholarship… So the British

school system I think is quite good. It is a sad fact that in North America

school level Math and Science is bit weak, well, of course except some

Science and Math Institute. Yes there are Science and Math Institute at the

High school level. But I know the graduate schools ( most of them) give well

rounded education and perspective. In the undergraduate there are lots of

other areas to cover so they don’t get the chance to punch more courses on

math and science.

I’m happy with the english version of that book

Both of my boys are california GATE students and takes advance courses in

Math and Science. But I will have to wait another 3 and 5 years when they

approach the college to find out how good and how interested are they ?

Thanks for mentioning the Control theory book.

Well, as if I’ve to sign something !

Pro,

Thank you for pointing out the first one which I didn’t know about.

Courant and Hilbert’s is my “bed time story” book-:). I only wish I knew

German so that I can read the original to make sure nothing is missing while

translating to English. Also, some “physimatics” books from Russian are

highly rated but can’t find their English version.

I think the mathematics education in America falls behind in general. In

some Asian countries, Calculus I is in standard curriculum for high school

kids.

In engineering field,

“Very few practicing engineers perform any kind of physical and mathematical

modeling. Mathematics is a subject that is not viewed as enhancing one’s

engineering skills but as an obstacle to avoid. Very few engineers have

balance between analysis and hardware essential for success in

Mechatronics.” By Kevin C. Craig, PhD, Professor of Mechanical Engineering,

Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute “Modeling Analysis and Control

Introduction”.

Well, I’m sending my kids to math camp this weekend:)

Don’t forget to take a look at the following -

1) Pure Math by Hardy. It has one of the best treatment of elementary

function theory, including one of the best treatment of limit theories ( the

basic of non linear continuous math - in one word calculus ). This part with

taylor series in real or complex variable makes numercial analysis so easily

understandable

2) Mathematical Physics by Courant and Hilbert. One of the classic of all

time.

Good lord, you can use those for your design !. I only refer to them when I

look at some of the codec implementations. Really good for you.

Well, as if I’ve to sign something !

Yes, they are dynamic. Knowing the instantaneous value of any volatile

values aren’t very useful. However, from the instantaneous values, one could

compute the time derivative of the measurable quantity which is the

fundamental building block of differential equations. Dynamic systems are

naturally described by differential equations. Some complex optimization

algorithms I did in the past are modeled in DE. I didn’t really appreciate

the hard time my professors gave me on Mathematical Physics and Advanced

Engineering Mathematics back in the school days until I learned how to use

them to solve complex problems in my real world designs.

These are becoming totally dynamic as Windows moves forward so even if you

get it working today, it will not tommorrow. Why in the world would you

want this in the first place, even if you knew you have no control over the

other drivers of the system so the available pool is always changing.
