            Weyl group multiple Dirichlet series are generalizations of the Riemann zeta function. Like the Riemann zeta function, they are Dirichlet series with analytic continuation and functional equations, having applications to analytic number theory. This book proves foundational resul...ts about these series and develops their combinatorics.

            Number concepts are a human invention developed and refined over millennia. They allow us to grasp quantities precisely: recent research shows that most specific quantities are not perceived in the absence of a number system. Numbers are not innate or universal; yet without them,... the world as we know it would not exist.

            This book provides a starting point for the understanding of Geometric Algebra in a 2D setting as a foundation for the understanding of 3D applications, especially those using the very popular Conformal Geometric Algebra. The focus is on an algebra, called Compass Ruler Algebra. ...This algebra offers the possibility to compute with circles, lines and point pairs in a very intuitive way. While focusing on 2D, it is easily expandable to 3D computations. The book is divided into three parts: Part I is an easy to understand tutorial with many figures; Part II presents the mathematical background; Part III is dedicated to applications.

            The Rogers--Ramanujan identities are a pair of infinite series-infinite product identities that were first discovered in 1894. Over the past several decades these identities, and identities of similar type, have found applications in number theory, combinatorics, Lie algebra and ...vertex operator algebra theory, physics (especially statistical mechanics), and computer science (especially algorithmic proof theory). Presented in a coherant and clear way, this will be the first book entirely devoted to the Rogers-Ramanujan identities and will include related historical material that is unavailable elsewhere.

            While the valuation of standard American option contracts has now achieved a fair degree of maturity, much work remains to be done regarding the new contractual forms that are constantly emerging in response to evolving economic conditions and regulations. Focusing on recent deve...lopments in the field, American-Style Derivatives provides an extensive treatment of option pricing with an emphasis on the valuation of American options on dividend-paying assets. The book begins with a review of valuation principles for European contingent claims in a financial market in which the underlying asset price follows an Ito process and the interest rate is stochastic and then extends the analysis to American contingent claims. In this context the author lays out the basic valuation principles for American claims and describes instructive representation formulas for their prices. The results are applied to standard American options in the Black-Scholes market setting as well as to a variety of exotic contracts such as barrier, capped, and multi-asset options. He also reviews numerical methods for option pricing and compares their relative performance. The author explains all the concepts using standard financial terms and intuitions and relegates proofs to appendices that can be found at the end of each chapter. The book is written so that the material is easily accessible not only to those with a background in stochastic processes and/or derivative securities, but also to those with a more limited exposure to those areas.

            Elliptic Polynomials

            A remarkable interplay exists between the fields of elliptic functions and orthogonal polynomials. In the first monograph to explore their connections, Elliptic Polynomials combines these two areas of study, leading to an interesting development of some basic aspects of each. It ...presents new material about various classes of polynomials and about the odd Jacobi elliptic functions and their inverses. The term elliptic polynomials refers to the polynomials generated by odd elliptic integrals and elliptic functions. In studying these, the authors consider such things as orthogonality and the construction of weight functions and measures, finding structure constants and interesting inequalities, and deriving useful formulas and evaluations. Although some of the material may be familiar, it establishes a new mathematical field that intersects with classical subjects at many points. Its wealth of information on important properties of polynomials and clear, accessible presentation make Elliptic Polynomials valuable to those in real and complex analysis, number theory, and combinatorics, and will undoubtedly generate further research.
