  • This book discusses a variety of topics in mathematics and engineering as well as their applications, clearly explaining the mathematical concepts in the simplest possible way and illustrating them with a number of solved examples. The topics include real and complex analysis, special functions and analytic number theory, q-series, Ramanujan's mathematics, fractional calculus, Clifford and harmonic analysis, graph theory, complex analysis, complex dynamical systems, complex function spaces and operator theory, geometric analysis of complex manifolds, geometric function theory, Riemannian surfaces, Teichmüller spaces and Kleinian groups, engineering applications of complex analytic methods, nonlinear analysis, inequality theory, potential theory, partial differential equations, numerical analysis , fixed-point theory, variational inequality, equilibrium problems, optimization problems, stability of functional equations, and mathematical physics. It includes papers presented at the 24th International Conference on Finite or Infinite Dimensional Complex Analysis and Applications (24ICFIDCAA), held at the Anand International College of Engineering, Jaipur, 22-26 August 2016. The book is a valuable resource for researchers in real and complex analysis.

  • This book provides a detailed study of recent results in metric fixed point theory and presents several applications in nonlinear analysis, including matrix equations, integral equations and polynomial approximations. Each chapter is accompanied by basic definitions, mathematical preliminaries and proof of the main results. Divided into ten chapters, it discusses topics such as the Banach contraction principle and its converse; Ran-Reurings fixed point theorem with applications; the existence of fixed points for the class of a-? contractive mappings with applications to quadratic integral equations; recent results on fixed point theory for cyclic mappings with applications to the study of functional equations; the generalization of the Banach fixed point theorem on Branciari metric spaces; the existence of fixed points for a certain class of mappings satisfying an implicit contraction; fixed point results for a class of mappings satisfying a certain contraction involving extended simulation functions; the solvability of a coupled fixed point problem under a finite number of equality constraints; the concept of generalized metric spaces, for which the authors extend some well-known fixed point results; and a new fixed point theorem that helps in establishing a Kelisky-Rivlin type result for q-Bernstein polynomials and modified q-Bernstein polynomials.
    The book is a valuable resource for a wide audience, including graduate students and researchers.

  • This book focuses on value addition to various waste streams, which include industrial waste, agricultural waste, and municipal solid and liquid waste. It addresses the utilization of waste to generate valuable products such as electricity, fuel, fertilizers, and chemicals, while placing special emphasis on environmental concerns and presenting a multidisciplinary approach for handling waste. Including chapters authored by prominent national and international experts, the book will be of interest to researchers, professionals and policymakers alike.

  • This book is a collection of original research and survey articles on mathematical inequalities and their numerous applications in diverse areas of mathematics and engineering.
