♥ Book Title : Nonlinear Approximation Theory
☯ Full Synopsis : "The first investigations of nonlinear approximation problems were made by P.L. Chebyshev in the last century, and the entire theory of uniform approxima tion is strongly connected with his name. By making use of his ideas, the theories of best uniform approximation by rational functions and by polynomials were developed over the years in an almost unified framework. The difference between linear and rational approximation and its implications first became apparent in the 1960's. At roughly the same time other approaches to nonlinear approximation were also developed. The use of new tools, such as nonlinear functional analysis and topological methods, showed that linearization is not sufficient for a complete treatment of nonlinear families. In particular, the application of global analysis and the consideration of flows on the family of approximating functions intro duced ideas which were previously unknown in approximation theory. These were and still are important in many branches of analysis. On the other hand, methods developed for nonlinear approximation prob lems can often be successfully applied to problems which belong to or arise from linear approximation. An important example is the solution of moment problems via rational approximation. Best quadrature formulae or the search for best linear spaces often leads to the consideration of spline functions with free nodes. The most famous problem of this kind, namely best interpolation by poly nomials, is treated in the appendix of this book."Article| Dietrich Braess| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Moving Pictures
☯ Full Synopsis : "Nominated for the 2011 Stumptown Award and Doug Wright Award! "A wonderful, poignant surprise."-- Paul Gravett, author of Graphic Novels: Stories to Change Your Life "Most of the story seems less drawn than peeled and chiseled away from absolute visual and moral darkness... [Moving Pictures] suggests how art can be a lifeline to meaning at a moment when nothing seems possible but betrayal."-- Douglas Wolk, The New York Times "This elegant and evocative historical graphic novel explores the personal relationships involved in protecting internationally recognized works of fine art during the Nazi occupation of Paris ... the storytelling and the characters are as sober as the crisp, heavy black-and-white of its images ... Deftly told, the whole story resonates long after its appropriately ambiguous final pages."-- Booklist (starred review) "Subtle [and] mature ... the Immonens keep the story spare and focused to allow the ambiguity of survival itself to become the drama."-- Publishers Weekly (starred review) "An engaging story that comments on art and value, decency and free will, and what it means to follow your convictions."-- Torontoist "A multifaceted story full of difficult storytelling and ambiguous morality... illustrative of what a major writing talent Kathryn Immonen really is. Husband Stuart's work is equally excellent, closed and evocative with skillful use of light and shadow."-- The AV Club "A sparse, bleak experience that moves with slow, deliberate steps through a world of deep, ambiguous shadow."-- Comics Alliance "Moving and atmospheric... The striking black and white artwork is suitably stark and moody and matched for impact by the brisk, loaded dialogue, lending the characters a life-like depth and immediacy."-- Christian Kerr, BlogCritics Top Shelf is proud to welcome Kathryn & Stuart Immonen (Ultimate Spider-Man, Nextwave, Patsy Walker: Hellcat, Never as Bad as You Think) to the Top Shelf family with this thrilling, intimate tale of love, war, and art. Moving Pictures is the story of the awkward and dangerous relationship between curator Ila Gardner and officer Rolf Hauptmann, as they are forced by circumstances to play out their private lives in a public power struggle. The narrative unfolds along two timelines which collide with the revelation of a terrible secret, an enigmatic decision that not many would make, and the realization that sometimes the only choice left is the refusal to choose. In a recent interview at comicbookresources.com, Kathryn explained that "The history is just a backdrop to tell a messed-up love story that's about how we assign value to things and people, how we behave when not everyone is playing by the same rules"and "in the end, maybe it's all about the fundamentally perverse nature of desire, about not being to help wanting what you want even if you don't know why. And how, from the outside, we really don't know anything about someone else's intimacies.""Article| Kathryn Immonen, Stuart Immonen| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : All That Is Red
☯ Full Synopsis : "If you could choose a world without loneliness, without shame, grief, misery, or feeling of any kind, would you, if it also meant that you lost the simple pleasure of a picnic on a sunny day or the joy of falling in love? Would the allure of a comfortable numbness prove too tempting to resist? Could you choose between feeling pain and not feeling anything, ever again? A girl is caught in a world where this choice is fiercely contested. In the cross-fire between the Red and White empires, the feeling and the unfeeling, each bent on the other's destruction, the girl must choose between emotion and oblivion, joining the ranks with the Reds as they fight to resist the Whites, but all the while struggling with her own desperate ambivalence. All That Is Red is a story of survival and a journey through the human condition, revealing how the intimate euphoria of pain can sometimes be all we have to remind us that we are alive. Anna Caltabiano is fifteen years old. She was born in British colonial Hong Kong to a Japanese mother and an Italian-American father, before moving to Palo Alto, California; the mecca of futurism. Her writing explores and exposes an adolescent dystopia in which accepted traditions, religions, cultures and communities have been eroded, resulting in a lost generation consumed by social apathy and self-loathing which has found solace through electronic connections. Unsettling, engaging and surprisingly erudite, All That Is Red is a remarkably assured debut from an ascending literary star."Article| Anna Caltabiano| Statement ..."
