Linear algebra can be regarded as the theory of the vector spaces, as a vector space is a set of some objects or elements, that can be added together and multiplied by the numbers (the result remaining an element of the set), so that the ordinary rules of calculation to be valid. An example of a vector space is the geometric vector space (the free vector space), presented in the first chapter of the book, which plays a central role in physics and technology and illustrates the importance of the vector spaces and linear algebra for all practical applications. Besides the notions which operates mathematics, created by abstraction from environmental observation (for example the geometric concepts) or quantitative and qualitative research of the natural phenomena (for example the notion of number) in mathematics there are elements from other sciences. The notion of vector, brought physics has been studied and developed, creating vector calculus, which become a useful tool both mathematics and physics. All physical quantities are represented by vectors (for example the force, the velocity).

Affine algebra has developed in many directions since its inception. This often poses a problem for undergraduate/graduate/research students-which direction should one follow? What do these ideas have to do with robotics? This book offers a more focused treatment of the applications of algebraic properties in robotics. This is designed to make robotic algebra an approachable and interesting subject for the readers, especially students, researchers in robotics. The authors consider the development of theory in affine algebra in the context of application towards robot motion planning. The main theorems on verities and polynomials are presented with the proofs. The authors then introduce the methods of algebra with some notions from topology and develop them towards the goal of constructing robot models with joints. Interesting diversions are offered such as snake joints and snaky arms. This monograph is presented in its simplest form with short necessary details. The theoretical and practical importance of the abstract concepts is briefed, which will help the students familiarize themselves with the topic.
The aim of this research was to investigate the level of conceptual and procedural understanding of linear algebra concepts among first and second year university students. An initial pilot study provided enough evidence, to convince the researcher to design a theoretical framework to pursue an alternative approach for the teaching and learning of a group of linear algebra concepts. Based on the methodology a number of case studies were carried out and the outcome from the tests, interviews and concept maps were analysed. It is important to note that, it is not the intention of this study to generalise these findings for all the mathematics students of this, or any other university. However, the results indicate strong reasons for proposing further investigation in teaching and learning of linear algebra concepts.
This book, consisting of five chapters, contains 244 problems in linear algebra. The topics covered are: systems of linear equations, vector spaces, linear transformations, linear, bilinear and quadratic forms, Euclidean vector spaces and convex sets. Each chapter is divided into four parts: definitions and basic results (I), solved problems (II), additional problems (III), hints and answers for additional problems (IV). There is a table of contents, bibliography and an index, which permit easy location of a special topic and also a quick access to the hints and solutions. The book is mainly addressed to undergraduate students in mathematics as a companion and complement to the basic course in Linear Algebra, but may also be a valuable tool for the undergraduate and graduate students in engineering, computer science, economics and the natural sciences.

Relational algebra is a simple and consistent query language that is often used to explain principles of relational operations. While many books and articles deal with the theory of relational algebra, its practical applicability is generally neglected. Moreover, there is no software support for evaluating relational algebra expressions: contemporary relational database management systems implement only the SQL query language. Finally, the common syntax for relational algebra is based on Greek alphabet, making queries difficult to type on standard keyboards. We divide this work into two parts, theoretical and practical. In the theoretical part you will find definitions of relational algebra operations accompanied by clear examples. The practical part proposes new and approachable ASCII-compatible syntax for relational algebra. Furthermore, it explores the possibilities of automated translation of queries into SQL. A tool for checking syntactic and semantic correctness is described in detail. This book is among the few resources dealing with direct practical applications of relational algebra. Moreover, it is a great starting point for everyone interested in the background theory.

Nature is abundant with the examples of flows involving non-Newtonian fluids. Such flows are widely encountered in many industrial and technology applications, such as melts of polymers, biological solutions, paints, tars, asphalts and glues etc. Moreover, non-Newtonian nanofluids are also widely encountered in many industrial and technology applications such as nuclear reactors, transportation industry (an automobiles, trucks, and airplanes), micro-electromechanical systems, electronics and instrumentation etc. This book deals an incompressible, non-Newtonian and non-Newtonian nanofluid. It is well known that getting an analytic solution of a nonlinear coupled partial differential equation is often more difficult as compared to getting a numerical solution. This book provides analytical solutions by using the methods like lie algebra, perturbation and homotopy techniques. In many cases solution obtains are compared with each other and existing results. Convergence of the obtained series solutions has been discussed explicitly and the recurrence formulae for finding the coefficients are also given. The role of pertinent parameters is illustrated graphically in each case.
