The fourth German edition of this textbook presents the fundamental ideas and results of both probability theory and statistics. It comprises the material of a one-year course, and is addressed to students of mathematics as well as scientists and computer scientists with interest in the mathematical aspects of stochastics.
Thistextbook expands the standard work on numerical mathematics to include the numerics of partial differential equations. The volume is intended for students of mathematics as well as physicists, chemists and engineers who are confronted with finding efficient solutions for complex application problems.
Four years after the last edition, a revision of this well-established textbook is set for release. The 14th edition covers the current trends in legislation, case-law and academic discussion in the fields of general administrative law and administrative procedural law. Particular attention is devoted to the continuing development of European Community Law. The new edition includes the Law Index (JURA-Kartei: JK) on CD-ROM with 5550 annotated court decisions. Law Index references in the textbook offer readers the opportunity to gain deeper insight.
European Law is increasingly displacing and replacing national law. Previous presentations of European law have focused mainly on the institutions. Citizens and their legal positions have been too often overlooked.This textbook, which is already in its third edition, applies a unified didactic concept to the examination of the essential issues of the European Fundamental Rights and Freedoms. The comprehensively revised new edition takes into consideration all amendments and includes not only the most current supplementary protocols to the European Convention on Human Rights but also the Treaty Establishing a Constitution for Europe and the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union.
This textbook's target audience is primarily students and trainees, but is also geared towards courts, public authorities and associations as well as all those interested in European law.
The revised 9th edition presents the theoretical foundations of general chemistry, a brief overview of the elements and touches on current environmental problems. Concisely written with clear illustrations, this textbook is a favorite among students with a chemistry minor.
This introduction tophysicsis aimed at students of medicine, biology and pharmaceutics. The texthas been completely revised, updated and supplemented with new examples from the biological sciences.
In diesem einzigartigen Lehrbuch werden anhand von Anwendungsbeispielen die Grundkonzepte der Mechanik vorgestellt. Es setzt nur wenige mathematische Vorkenntnisse voraus.
The new textbook on copyright law offers a didactic three-step-model to aid the acquisition and deepening of copyright law knowledge. Significant German Federal Court of Justice decisions are drawn upon based on theoretical as well as practical questions in the area of copyright law which especially illustrate the dogmatic key aspects of the case. The reader is then offered the possibility of answering questions that follow. This manner of self-monitoring allows the reader to see the extent to which the theoretical and dogmatic problems presented have been understood.
This third edition is aimed to serve as a reference work not only for law students (from the start of law school up to final exams) but also legal trainees as well as legal practitioners. It presents the fundamentals as well as specialized topics of the law of succession. Legislation enacted since the previous edition was taken into consideration according to its educational relevance. Based on its connection to the ongoing and heated debate on euthanasia, the topic of "patient testaments" was thoroughly revised. The planned legal amendments, which will especially affect the law pertaining to compulsory portion, were also taken into consideration. A new chapter presents the issues surrounding a person's ability to inherit, whose birth is a result of artificial insemination.
This textbook for the basic lecture course of the same name deals with selected topics of multidimensional analysis. It is also an introduction to the theory of ordinary differential equations and the Fourier theory, of importance in the application of image processing and acoustics.
This textbook offers a systematic presentation and discussion of the basic principles and features of labor and employment law. It highlights the structures and trends and clarifies their relevance to conflict resolution. Keywords are: the scope of labor and employment law and its constitutional framework, its specific legal foundations (e.g. case law and the principles of equal treatment) and means of regulation (e.g. customs and practices of the employer and a general undertaking by the employer), and modifications of the common German civil law as well as the specialized legal institutions of collective employment law. The latest revision of this textbook brings it up to date once again.
This textbook represents an extensive and easily understood introduction to tensor analysis, which is to be construed here as the generic term for classical tensor analysis and tensor algebra, and which is a requirement in many physics applications and in engineering sciences. The book is primarily directed at students on various engineering study courses. It imparts the required algebraic aids and contains numerous exercises with answers, making it eminently suitable for self study.
The goal of this textbook is to provide the first complete overview of the issue of legal protection under international, European and German public law including the reciprocal interconnections based on a unified didactic concept.
This textbook provides a compact yet accessibly written introduction to probability theory. Stochastic processes, martingales and application examples are dealt with alongside the basics. The necessary foundations of measure theory and metric spaces is provided. This text can be used as a first-class and motivating basis for a challenging three-semester introductory course on probability theory.
This textbook deals with the numerical solution of initial and boundary value problems for ordinary differential equations. It takes the reader directly to the practically proven methods – from their theoretical foundation via their analysis to questions of implementation. The textbook contains a wealth of exercises together with numerous application examples. Sections of this third edition have been revised and it has been supplemented with MATLAB codes.
Gegenstand dieses Lehrbuchs ist die Behandlung schwer lösbarer diskreter Optimierungsprobleme. Im ersten Teil werden schnelle Algorithmen vorgestellt, die solche Probleme näherungsweise lösen können. Der zweite Teil behandelt Komplexitätstheorie und Nichtapproximierbarkeit von Optimierungsproblemen. Das Lehrbuch enthält zudem zahlreiche Anwendungsbeispiele, Übungsaufgaben, Illustrationen und Abschnitte über Grundlagen wie etwa die Turingmaschine.
The philosophy of religion lies at the intersection of theology, philosophy and the theory of religion. The presentation concentrates on Christian traditions as transformed through the European Enlightenment and the present-day re-appropriations of the pragmatic significance of religion. Particular interest is devoted to integrating initiatives from American approaches to the philosophy of religion, which differ from 20th century German Protestant theology in explicitly seeking the connections between nature, religion and science. This affirms the universal significance of the philosophy of religion in the present day.
Wilhelm, Law of Companies, covers many legal areas that have undergone intense reform over the last few years. Following an introduction to the system of the law of companies and the history of the stock corporation (AG -Aktiengesellschaft) and the limited liability company (GmbH-Gesellschaft mit beschränkter Haftung), the "neighboring" areas of national capital market regulation and the European aspects are introduced. The next chapters are dedicated to the laws pertaining to the formation of a company and the problems of capitalization, which are essential to the understanding and system of the German law of companies. The following sections describe corporate actions and the appointment of members, the legal relationship in the corporation, the organization of corporations in respect to affiliated groups, and accounting. The second to last chapter introduces the reader to the legal form of the partnership limited by shares (KGaA- Kommanditgesellschaft auf Aktien). The final chapter offers a look into the termination or transformation of a corporation.
