Prof. Phil Dyke has just published a new book with the title: Two and Three Dimensional Calculus: with Applications in Science and Engineering. For more detail you can also read the Wiley site.
The book covers multivariable calculus, starting from the basics and leading up to the three theorems of Green, Gauss, and Stokes, but always with an eye on practical applications.
To celebrate international Woman’s day on Thursday 8th March, the Cambridge Core blog has collected a list of 17 of the world’s most prominent women in mathematics.
Professor Brunero Liseo from the University of Rome visited our Drs Luciana Dalla Valle and Julian Stander to conduct research on a project entitled “High-Dimensional Bayesian Dependence Modelling
with Conditional Copulas” supported by a Royal Society grant.
One of the aims of the project is to use statistical models to providing a better understanding of how children’s eyes develop. Because of the bad weather caused by Storm Emma, Brunero had to delay his return to Rome, providing the team with an additional day to collaborate on the project.
