About this book


It isn't that they can't see Approach your problems from the solution. the right end and begin with It is that they can't see the the answers. Then one day, problem. perhaps you will find the final qu~stion. G. K. Chesterton. The Scandal of Father Brown ITh~ Point of 'The Hermit Clad in Crane Feathers' in R. van Gulik's a Pin'. The Chinese Maze Murders. Growing specialization and diversification have brought a host of monographs and textbooks on increasingly specialized topics. HowQvQr, thQ "tree" of knowledge of mathematics and related field does not grow only by putting forth new branches. It also happ~ns, quit~ often in fact, that branches which were thought to be completely disparate are suddenly seen to be related. Further, the kind and level of sophistication of mathe­ matics applied in various sciences has changed drastically in recent years: measure theory is used (non-trivially) in regional and theoretical economics; algebraic geometry interacts with physics; the Minkowsky lemma, coding theory and the structure of water meet one another in packing and covering theory; quantum fields, crystal defects and mathematical programming profit from homotopy theory; Lie algebras are relevant to filtering; and prediction and electrical engineering can use Stein spaces.
