The position of Yuri Vasilyevich Prokhorov as a prominent mathematician and prime professional in the concept of chance is celebrated. Even early in his occupation he bought vast effects at the validity of the powerful legislations of enormous numbers and at the estimates (bounds) of the premiums of convergence, a few of that are the absolute best. His findings on restrict theorems in metric areas and especially useful restrict theorems are of remarkable significance. Y.V. Prokhorov built an unique method of the evidence of practical restrict theorems, based at the susceptible convergence of finite dimensional distributions and the of tightness of probability measures.

The present volume commemorates the 80<sup>th </sup>birthday of Yuri Vasilyevich Prokhorov. It comprises medical contributions written by way of his colleagues, acquaintances and pupils, who wish to convey their deep appreciate and sincerest admiration for him and his medical work.

**Out of the Labyrinth: Setting Mathematics Free**

Who hasn't feared the maths Minotaur in its labyrinth of abstractions? Now, in Out of the Labyrinth, Robert and Ellen Kaplan--the founders of the maths Circle, the preferred studying software started at Harvard in 1994--reveal the secrets and techniques at the back of their hugely profitable process, best readers out of the labyrinth and into the joyous include of arithmetic.

Laplace transforms stay an important device for the engineer, physicist and utilized mathematician. also they are now valuable to monetary, fiscal and organic modellers as those disciplines develop into extra quantitative. Any challenge that has underlying linearity and with answer in line with preliminary values may be expressed as a suitable differential equation and therefore be solved utilizing Laplace transforms.

**From combinatorics to dynamical systems: journées de calcul formel, Strasbourg, March 22-23, 2002**

This quantity includes 9 refereed study papers in quite a few parts from combinatorics to dynamical platforms, with laptop algebra as an underlying and unifying subject matter. issues coated comprise abnormal connections, rank relief and summability of strategies of differential platforms, asymptotic behaviour of divergent sequence, integrability of Hamiltonian structures, a number of zeta values, quasi-polynomial formalism, Padé approximants relating to analytic integrability, hybrid structures.

**Factorization of Matrix and Operator Functions - The State Space Method**

This booklet delineates many of the forms of factorization difficulties for matrix and operator features. the issues originate from, or are inspired through, the idea of non-selfadjoint operators, the idea of matrix polynomials, mathematical platforms and keep an eye on concept, the speculation of Riccati equations, inversion of convolution operators, and the idea of task scheduling in operations study.
