For seven years, Paul Lockhart’s A Mathematician’s Lament loved a samizdat-style attractiveness within the arithmetic underground, earlier than call for triggered its 2009 ebook to even wider applause and debate. An impassioned critique of K–12 arithmetic schooling, it defined how we shortchange scholars through introducing them to math the opposite direction.

This quantity comprises chosen contributions originating from the ‘Conference on optimum regulate of Coupled structures of Partial Differential Equations’, held on the ‘Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach’ in April 2005. With their articles, best scientists disguise a wide variety of issues reminiscent of controllability, feedback-control, optimality structures, model-reduction ideas, research and optimum keep an eye on of circulate difficulties, and fluid-structure interactions, in addition to difficulties of form and topology optimization.
