A New Calculus for the Treatment of Optical Systems. VII. Properties of the N-Matrices Some full text available
The preceding papers of this series have examined the properties of an optical calculus which represented each of the separate elements of an optical system by means of a single matrix M. This paper is concerned with the properties of matrices, denoted by N, which refer not to the complete element, but only to a given infinitesimal path length within the element.
A Residual Correction Method Based on Finite Calculus. Some full text available
In this paper, a residual correction method based upon an extension of the finite calculus concept is presented. The method is described and applied to the solution of a scalar convection-diffusion problem and the problem of elasticity at the incompressible or quasi-incompressible limit. The formulation permits the use of equal interpolation for displacements and pressure on linear triangles and tetrahedra as well as any low order element type. To add additional stability in the solution, pressure gradient corrections are introduced as suggested from developments of sub-scale methods. Numerical examples are included to demonstrate the performance of the method when applied to typical test problems
An Algebraic Framework for Linear Identification. Some full text available
A closed loop parametrical identification procedure for continuous-time constant linear systems is introduced. This approach which exhibits good robustness properties with respect to a large variety of additive perturbations is based on the following mathematical tools: (1) module theory; (2) differential algebra; (3) operational calculus. Several concrete case-studies with computer simulations demonstrate the efficiency of our on-line identification scheme.
Calculus of Variations and Partial Differential Equations. Some full text available
Calculus of Variations and Partial Differential Equations attracts and collects many of the important top-quality contributions to this field of research, and stresses the interactions between analysts, geometers, and physicists. In addition, it offers an opportunity for communication among scientists working in the field through a section called ''News and Views,'' which is open to discussions, announcements of meetings, reproductions of historical documents, and bibliographies. Coverage in the journal includes: - Minimization problems for variational integrals, existence and regularity theory for minimizers and critical points, geometric measure theory .
Formal Calculus For Real Valued Fractional Brownian Motions Prospects in Systems Science Some full text available
This journal defines the main elements of a formal calculus which deals with fractional Brownian motion, and to examine its prospects of applications in systems science. The approach is based on a generalization of the Maruyama's notation.
Fractional Calculus and Applied Analysis. Some full text available
The FCAA journal, abbreviated as ''Fract. Calc. Appl. Anal.'' in several world databases (search e.g. Google), is a specialized international journal for theory and applications with primary topics: Fractional Calculus, Special Functions and Integral Transforms, and secondary related topics of Applied Analysis, as described in Aims and Scope. The Editorial Policy is to publish high quality original research papers containing new results and applications in the FCAA topics, expository surveys written by known experts, as well as short notes, open problems, archives, and news about books and events interesting for the journal's audience. It is a peer-reviewed journal. The high standards of its contents are guaranteed by the list of the Editors and invited external referees, all of them selected from the world prominent experts in the FCAA areas. The journal has been established in 1998 with the founding publisher: Institute of Mathematics and Informatics.
Introduction: Discontinuity -A Weakness of Calculus And a Beginning of a New Era. Some full text available
In this article, the historical victories and shortfalls of calculus and calculus-based methods are briefly described so that a need of developing the theory of blown-ups is given. Listed are several challenges of the theory of blown-ups to the traditional thinking logic of continuity and characteristics of the theory of blown-ups.

Calculus with Analytical Geometry. Some full text available
This book is intended for a 4 quarter course in calculus for students of science, engineering, and business.It reflects more strongly on the viewpoints that a calculus text should present trigonometric functions as early as possible,that it should motivate and explain the idea of a limit in a manner that is as simple as possible and lastly that there should be an abundance and emphasis of applications. 

Keywords - Geometry, Analytical Calculus.
Location - QA303ZIL
Technical Calculus with Analytical Geometry. Some full text available
