About this Item

Neuware - On the occasion of his 60th birthday in October 2009, friends, collaborators, and admirers of Wolfgang Dahmen have organized this volume which touches on va- ous of his research interests. This volume will provide an easy to read excursion into many important topics in applied and computational mathematics. These include nonlinear and adaptive approximation, multivariate splines, subdivision schemes, multiscale and wavelet methods, numerical schemes for partial differential and boundary integral equations, learning theory, and high-dimensional integrals. College Station, Texas, USA Ronald A. DeVore Paderborn, Germany Angela Kunoth June 2009 vii Acknowledgements We are deeply grateful to Dr. Martin Peters and Thanh-Ha Le Thi from Springer for realizing this book project and to Frank Holzwarth for technical support. ix Contents Introduction: Wolfgang Dahmen s mathematical work. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 1 Ronald A.

About this title

Synopsis:

The book of invited articles offers a collection of high-quality papers in selected and highly topical areas of Applied and Numerical Mathematics and Approximation Theory which have some connection to Wolfgang Dahmen's scientific work. On the occasion of his 60th birthday, leading experts have contributed survey and research papers in the areas of Nonlinear Approximation Theory, Numerical Analysis of Partial Differential and Integral Equations, Computer-Aided Geometric Design, and Learning Theory. The main focus and common theme of all the articles in this volume is the mathematics building the foundation for most efficient numerical algorithms for simulating complex phenomena.

About the Author:

Ronald DeVore's speciality is Nonlinear Approximation Theory. He is The Walter E. Koss Professor of Mathematics at Texas A&M University.He was elected a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 2001 and received an Honorary Doctorate from RWTH Aachen in 2004. In 2006, he was a Plenary Lecturer at the International Congress of Mathematicians in Madrid.

Angela Kunoth is working on wavelet and multiscale methods for solving partial differential equations and for data analysis purposes. She holds the Chair of Complex Systems at Universitaet Paderborn since 2007 and is an editor of five journals in applied mathematics and numerics.
