  Mathematical analysis - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In the 14th century, mathematical analysis originated with Madhava in South India, who developed the fundamental ideas of the infinite series expansion of a function, the power series, the Taylor series, and the rational approximation of an infinite series.
Mathematical analysis in Europe began in the 17th century, with the possibly independent invention of calculus by Newton and Leibniz.
In the 17th and 18th centuries, analysis topics such as the calculus of variations, ordinary and partial differential equations, Fourier analysis and generating functions were developed mostly in applied work.

 Analysis
It is the aim of this article to indicate something of the range of conceptions of analysis in the history of philosophy and their interconnections, and to provide a bibliographical resource for those wishing to explore analytic methodologies and the philosophical issues that they raise.
For in analysis we suppose that which is sought to be already done, and we inquire from what it results, and again what is the antecedent of the latter, until we on our backward way light upon something already known and being first in order.
Analysis came to be seen as a method of discovery, working back from what is ordinarily known to the underlying reasons (demonstrating ‘the fact’), and synthesis as a method of proof, working forwards again from what is discovered to what needed explanation (demonstrating ‘the reason why’).

 Analytic areas of mathematics   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
One might characterize algebra and geometry as the search for elegant conclusions from small sets of axioms; in analysis on the other hand the measure of success is more frequently the ability to hone a tool which could be applied throughout science.
Mathematical Analysis includes many of the MSC primary headings, a large portion of the mathematics literature, and much of the most directly applicable mathematics.
When you're done with analysis, you might want to continue the tour with a trip through probability and statistics.

 Mathematical Analysis
Research in analysis at Bath is mainly concerned with the rigorous mathematical theory of partial differential equations which arise in problems from mechanics, physics and geometry, with special emphasis on nonlinear problems.
There are natural connections with differential geometry, nonlinear functional analysis, complex analysis, dynamical systems theory and harmonic analysis, which are reflected in the wide range of work being done here, including collaborations with colleagues in other groups.
Methods of functional analysis, especially convex analysis and minimax theory, have been applied to prove existence and multiplicity theorems for the solutions of some novel variational problems, where a solution is required that is a rearrangement of some pre-assigned function.

 Mathematical analysis could aid flu vaccine selection
Applying the technique to each of the last 16 flu seasons, the researchers concluded that, for a few of the years, their approach probably would have chosen a more prevalent strain than the one that was actually included in the vaccine.
In at least one year, however, their mathematical technique failed to identify the most active strain, which public health officials did correctly identify.
The Princeton researchers studied the character and rhythm of flu evolution by using mathematical tools that ecologists use to study ecosystems and the ebb and flow of parasite-host relationships.

 Mathematical Image Analysis and Processing
Our goal is to concentrate on a few of its mathematically intriguing problems, structure our workshop around them, and allow researchers pursuing different mathematical avenues toward the solution of these problems to present the state-of-the-art in their approach.
In plain words, one ends up having first to answer the question "What do we mean mathematically by images?" A pertinent example of this point can be found in the variational approach to image de-noising, the goal of which is to estimate the original version of an image from a given degraded one.
Through this workshop, we intend to summarize different mathematical tools for image analysis, to encourage their interaction, or unification, as well as to understand the limitations of the existing approaches.

 Mathematical Analysis - Content Standards (CA Dept of Education)
This discipline combines many of the trigonometric, geometric, and algebraic techniques needed to prepare students for the study of calculus and strengthens their conceptual understanding of problems and mathematical reasoning in solving problems.
Mathematical analysis is often combined with a course in trigonometry or perhaps with one in linear algebra to make a year-long precalculus course.
They can use the trigonometric form of complex numbers and understand that a function of a complex variable can be viewed as a function of two real variables.

 CAP METHODOLOGY   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
During the development of the CAP Numeric Analysis Model, the developer observed our culture and society for examples of unacceptable activities and behavior -- unacceptable in accordance with the teachings of Jesus -- examples of activities and behavior which are potentially destructive to wholesome morals, values, and principles.
While it is mathematically possible for the observed entity to receive a CAP score of much less than zero in any Investigation Area, the model is programmed to display zero for all scores equal to or less than zero.
Discarding the high and low score in a statistical analysis model is a standard technique to compensate for Gaussian skewing in the material under investiagtion,the model, and the investigator.

 Bayesian Analysis of U.S. Hurricane Climate
The analysis shows that the number of major hurricanes expected to reach the U.S. coast over the next 30 years is 18, while the number of hurricanes expected to hit Florida is 20.
Results from a careful analysis define the past climate that not only tells a story about the past, but can be used to gauge future activity.
To appreciate the length of record used in this analysis we note that 1851 marked Oersted's discovery of the magnetism of an electric current, Lord Kelvin's introduction of the absolute temperature scale, and Foucault's invention of the pendulum for demonstrating Earth's rotation (Heilbron and Bynum 2001).

 Ideal Justice: Mathematicians judge the Supreme Court: Science News Online, June 28, 2003   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Lawrence Sirovich, a mathematician at Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York City, calculated that the current Supreme Court of nine judges behaves as if it were made up of about 4.68 "ideal" judges—adjudicators who make their decisions completely independently of each other.
To put that figure in perspective, Sirovich says, a court with a strict liberal-conservative divide would behave as if it had only one judge because all decisions would be determined purely by which faction made up the majority.
"The analysis shows that there is a great deal of independence among the justices," he says.
