New Directions in Locally Compact Groups
This collection of expository articles by a range of established experts and newer researchers provides an overview of the recent developments in the theory of locally compact groups. It includes introductory articles on totally disconnected locally compact groups, profinite groups, p-adic Lie groups and the metric geometry of locally compact groups. Concrete examples, including groups acting on trees and Neretin groups, are discussed in detail. An outline of the emerging structure theory of locally compact groups beyond the connected case is presented through three complementary approaches: Willis’ theory of the scale function, global decompositions by means of subnormal series, and the local approach relying on the structure lattice. An introduction to lattices, invariant random subgroups and L2-invariants, and a brief account of the Burger-Mozes construction of simple lattices are also included. A final chapter collects various problems suggesting future research directions.

Steven Chapra’s Applied Numerical Methods with MATLAB, third edition, is written for engineering and science students who need to learn numerical problem solving. Theory is introduced to inform key concepts which are framed in applications and demonstrated using MATLAB. The book is designed for a one-semester or one-quarter course in numerical methods typically taken by undergraduates.
The third edition features new chapters on Eigenvalues and Fourier Analysis and is accompanied by an extensive set of m-files and instructor materials.
This text is a study of limits and continuity, and is designed to supplement standard calculus texts. It discusses limits and continuity in several different ways, since students gain understanding through comparison.
Continuity of a function and limit of a sequence are introduced before limit of a function. It is hoped that the student will gain momentum while studying these easier concepts so that when he reaches the difficult concepts of deleted neighborhood, limit point, and limit of a function, he will not lose sight of the simple pattern underlying the limit.
The new Mathematics General syllabus describes two pathways that start in Year 11. Even though both pathways share a common Preliminary course, students taking each pathway have specific learning needs, so we have published two levels of text for both Years 11 and 12. New Century Maths 11 (Pathway 1) has been written for the new Mathematics General course commencing in 2013. This book caters for students who have completed Stage 5.1 by the end of Year 10 and are headed towards the workforce or further training after school. The book encourages the development of practical mathematical skills for life. It supports a vocational pathway that is content-endorsed but not HSC-examinable. This book includes access to the NelsonNet password-protected website which contains student and teacher resources for schools that use New Century Maths 11 as a core resource.

The corresponding Year 12 text, New Century Maths 12 General Mathematics 1 HSC Course, will be available in mid 2013.

This write-in workbook is an invaluable resource to help students improve their Maths and English skills and help prepare for Level 1 and Level 2 Functional Skills exams. The real-life questions are all written in a Plumbing context to help students find essential Maths and English theory understandable, engaging and achievable. Written by Gary Taylor, lecturer with a wealth of experience in the Construction Multi-Skills and Plumbing industries, this workbook is an effective resource to support Maths and English learning in the classroom, at work and for personal study at home.
