The selected papers presented here emphasize the involvement of engineering science and mathematical modelling in rapidly solving complex problems which arise in the automotive industry. Chapters review the analysis of vehicle dynamics and control by automatic software generation and algebraic manipulation codes. Authors also discuss the application of control theory to four-wheel steering, active and semi-active suspensions, continuously variable transmission, and dynamometer control. Further chapters review the modelling of acoustical phenomena in the context of automotive noise, computer-induced changes in the artistic rendering of design elements, and the mathematical definition of surface features such as pockets, channels, and ribs. There are also chapters on the accurate and realistic prediction of air-flow and temperature characteristics to aid engine design, the simulation of flame propagation and knock, and using component models to predict vehicle heating and cooling. The final four chapters discuss finite element analysis of anisotropic deformation and its use in, for example, analyzing pressing or stamping operations; the sophisticated thermomechanical modelling of electrical components; and using well-tried algorithms to predict fatigue, and thus produce non-failing components. The volume will be an important source of up-to-date information for applied mathematicians, engineers, and researchers in the automotive industry, as well as for advanced students in engineering and mathematics.

This book presents a number of topics related to surfaces, such as Euclidean, spherical and hyperbolic geometry, the fundamental group, universal covering surfaces, Riemannian manifolds, the Gauss-Bonnet Theorem, and the Riemann mapping theorem. The main idea is to get to some interesting mathematics without too much formality. The book also includes some material only tangentially related to surfaces, such as the Cauchy Rigidity Theorem, the Dehn Dissection Theorem, and the Banach-Tarski Theorem.

The goal of the book is to present a tapestry of ideas from various areas of mathematics in a clear and rigourous yet informal and friendly way. Prerequisites include undergraduate courses in real analysis and in linear algebra, and some knowledge of complex analysis.

Forget everything you’ve been taught about math. In Burn Math Class, Jason Wilkes takes the traditional approach to mathematics education—with its unwelcoming textbooks, unexplained rules, and authoritarian assertions—and sets it on fire. Focusing on how mathematics is created rather than on mathematical facts, Wilkes teaches the subject in a way that requires no memorization and no prior knowledge beyond addition and multiplication. From these simple foundations, Burn Math Class shows how mathematics can be (re)invented from scratch without preexisting textbooks and courses. We can discover math on our own through experimentation and failure, without appealing to any outside authority. When math is created free from arcane notations and pretentious jargon that hide the simplicity of mathematical concepts, it can be understood organically—and it becomes fun! Following this unconventional approach, Burn Math Class leads the reader from the basics of elementary arithmetic to various “advanced” topics, such as time-dilation in special relativity, Taylor series, and calculus in infinite-dimensional spaces. Along the way, Wilkes argues that orthodox mathematics education has been teaching the subject backward: calculus belongs before many of its so-called prerequisites, and those prerequisites cannot be fully understood without calculus. Like the smartest, craziest teacher you’ve ever had, Wilkes guides you on an adventure in mathematical creation that will radically change the way you think about math. Revealing the beauty and simplicity of this timeless subject, Burn Math Class turns everything that seems difficult about mathematics upside down and sideways until you understand just how easy math can be.
