For fans of The Hunger Games, Battlestar Galactica, and Blade Runner comes the first book in the Partials Sequence, a fast-paced, action-packed, and riveting sci-fi teen series, by acclaimed author Dan Wells. Humanity is all but extinguished after a war with Partials—engineered organic beings identical to humans—has decimated the population. Reduced to only tens of thousands by a weaponized virus to which only a fraction of humanity is immune, the survivors in North America have huddled together on Long Island. But sixteen-year-old Kira is determined to find a solution. As she tries desperately to save what is left of her race, she discovers that that the survival of both humans and Partials rests in her attempts to answer questions about the war's origin that she never knew to ask. Playing on our curiosity of and fascination with the complete collapse of civilization, Partials is, at its heart, a story of survival, one that explores the individual narratives and complex relationships of those left behind, both humans and Partials alike—and of the way in which the concept of what is right and wrong in this world is greatly dependent on one's own point of view. Supports the Common Core State Standards

Originally published in 2000, this is the first volume of a comprehensive two-volume treatment of quadratic optimal control theory for partial differential equations over a finite or infinite time horizon, and related differential (integral) and algebraic Riccati equations. Both continuous theory and numerical approximation theory are included. The authors use an abstract space, operator theoretic approach, which is based on semigroups methods, and which is unifying across a few basic classes of evolution. The various abstract frameworks are motivated by, and ultimately directed to, partial differential equations with boundary/point control. Volume 1 includes the abstract parabolic theory for the finite and infinite cases and corresponding PDE illustrations as well as various abstract hyperbolic settings in the finite case. It presents numerous fascinating results. These volumes will appeal to graduate students and researchers in pure and applied mathematics and theoretical engineering with an interest in optimal control problems.

Building on the basic techniques of separation of variables and Fourier series, the book presents the solution of boundary-value problems for basic partial differential equations: the heat equation, wave equation, and Laplace equation, considered in various standard coordinate systems--rectangular, cylindrical, and spherical. Each of the equations is derived in the three-dimensional context; the solutions are organized according to the geometry of the coordinate system, which makes the mathematics especially transparent. Bessel and Legendre functions are studied and used whenever appropriate throughout the text. The notions of steady-state solution of closely related stationary solutions are developed for the heat equation; applications to the study of heat flow in the earth are presented. The problem of the vibrating string is studied in detail both in the Fourier transform setting and from the viewpoint of the explicit representation (d'Alembert formula). Additional chapters include the numerical analysis of solutions and the method of Green's functions for solutions of partial differential equations. The exposition also includes asymptotic methods (Laplace transform and stationary phase). With more than 200 working examples and 700 exercises (more than 450 with answers), the book is suitable for an undergraduate course in partial differential equations.

Covers ODEs and PDEs—in One Textbook Until now, a comprehensive textbook covering both ordinary differential equations (ODEs) and partial differential equations (PDEs) didn’t exist. Fulfilling this need, Ordinary and Partial Differential Equations provides a complete and accessible course on ODEs and PDEs using many examples and exercises as well as intuitive, easy-to-use software. Teaches the Key Topics in Differential Equations The text includes all the topics that form the core of a modern undergraduate or beginning graduate course in differential equations. It also discusses other optional but important topics such as integral equations, Fourier series, and special functions. Numerous carefully chosen examples offer practical guidance on the concepts and techniques. Guides Students through the Problem-Solving Process Requiring no user programming, the accompanying computer software allows students to fully investigate problems, thus enabling a deeper study into the role of boundary and initial conditions, the dependence of the solution on the parameters, the accuracy of the solution, the speed of a series convergence, and related questions. The ODE module compares students’ analytical solutions to the results of computations while the PDE module demonstrates the sequence of all necessary analytical solution steps.

If we had to formulate in one sentence what this book is about, it might be "How partial differential equations can help to understand heat explosion, tumor growth or evolution of biological species". These and many other applications are described by reaction-diffusion equations. The theory of reaction-diffusion equations appeared in the first half of the last century. In the present time, it is widely used in population dynamics, chemical physics, biomedical modelling. The purpose of this book is to present the mathematical theory of reaction-diffusion equations in the context of their numerous applications. We will go from the general mathematical theory to specific equations and then to their applications. Existence, stability and bifurcations of solutions will be studied for bounded domains and in the case of travelling waves. The classical theory of reaction-diffusion equations and new topics such as nonlocal equations and multi-scale models in biology will be considered.

Filled with passion, longing, surprises and humor, Friends With Partial Benefits, the first novel in the four-book series, is hard to put down and will leave you laughing out loud and slightly sleep deprived. Jillian Grayson is a disillusioned divorcee and best-selling romance novelist who suddenly can't write a chapter without her hunky male heartthrob suffering ED, an STD, or even worse. Brian Nash is a tennis-obsessed college senior who's unlucky in love and the roommate and best friend of Jillian's son, Rob. When Rob brings Brian home for Spring Break, and Brian meets the surprisingly young and tennis passionate Jillian, their shared interest quickly develops into an intense mutual attraction. After nearly giving in to their feelings, they hatch a plan, while under the influence (of something more than just the perfect Miami night), to be Friends With Partial Benefits, complete with rules to define the boundaries. Will the lonely pair continue with this distinctive relationship, actually explore their desires, or discover all of it is a really bad idea?"

A thorough review of the most current regression methods in timeseries analysis Regression methods have been an integral part of time seriesanalysis for over a century. Recently, new developments have mademajor strides in such areas as non-continuous data where a linearmodel is not appropriate. This book introduces the reader to newerdevelopments and more diverse regression models and methods fortime series analysis. Accessible to anyone who is familiar with the basic modern conceptsof statistical inference, Regression Models for Time SeriesAnalysis provides a much-needed examination of recent statisticaldevelopments. Primary among them is the important class of modelsknown as generalized linear models (GLM) which provides, under someconditions, a unified regression theory suitable for continuous,categorical, and count data. The authors extend GLM methodology systematically to time serieswhere the primary and covariate data are both random andstochastically dependent. They introduce readers to variousregression models developed during the last thirty years or so andsummarize classical and more recent results concerning state spacemodels. To conclude, they present a Bayesian approach to predictionand interpolation in spatial data adapted to time series that maybe short and/or observed irregularly. Real data applications andfurther results are presented throughout by means of chapterproblems and complements. Notably, the book covers: * Important recent developments in Kalman filtering, dynamic GLMs,and state-space modeling * Associated computational issues such as Markov chain, MonteCarlo, and the EM-algorithm * Prediction and interpolation * Stationary processes
