**Robust Estimates of Location: Survey and Advances**

Princeton, NJ: Princeton University Press, 1972.

Card covers. pp 373. Fine copy, no owner marks. Because estimation involves inferring information about an unknown quantity on the basis of available data, the selection of an estimator is influenced by its ability to perform well under the conditions that are assumed to underlie the data. Since these conditions are never known exactly, the estimators chosen must be robust; i.e., they must be able to perform well under a variety of underlying conditions. The theory of robust estimation is based on specified properties of specified estimators under specified conditions. This book was written as the result of a study undertaken to establish the interaction of these three components over as large a range as possible.

**Metastability and Incompletely Posed Problems**

New York: Springer, 1986.

Mustard cloth, pp 372. Fine copy, no owner marks. This IMA Volume in Mathematics and its Applications Metastability and Incompletely Posed Problems represents the proceedings of a workshop which was an integral part of the 19R4-R5 IMA program on CONTINUUM PHYSICS AND PARTIAL DIFFERENTIAL EOIIATIONS. We are grateful to the Scientific Committee: ,I.L. Eri cksen D. Kinderlehrer H. Rrezis C. Dafermos for their dedication and hard work in developing an imaginative, stimulating, and productive year-long program. George R. Sell Hans Weinberger Preface Most equilibrium events in nature do not realize configurations of minimum energy. They are only metastable. Available knowledge of constitutive relations and environmental interactions may be limiterl. As a result, many configurations may he compatible with the rlata. Such questions are incompletely poserl. The papers in this volume address a wide variety of these issues as they are perceived by the material scientist and the mathematician. They represent a portion of the significant activity which has been underway in recent years, from the experimental arena and physical theory to the analysis of differential equations and computation.

**Mathematical Theory of Electrophoresis. Translated from the Russian by Cathy Flick**

New York: Consultants Bureau / Plenum Press, 1989.

Glossy boards, pp 241. Slight rubbing to the surface gloss, else a fine copy, no owner marks. The development of contemporary molecular biology with its growing tendency toward in-depth study of the mechanisms of biological processes, structure, function, and identification of biopolymers requires application of accurate physicochemical methods. Electrophoresis occupies a key position among such methods. A wide range of phenomena fall un der the designation of electrophoresis in the literature at the present time. One common characteristic of all such phenomena is transport by an elec tric field of a substance whose particles take on a net charge as a result of interaction with the solution. The most important mechanisms for charge generation are dissociation of the substance into ions in solution and for mation of electrical double layers with uncompensated charges on particles of dispersed medium in the liquid. As applied to the problem of separation, purification, and analysis of cells, cell organelles, and biopolymers, there is a broad classification of electrophoretic methods primarily according to the methodological charac teristics of the process, the types of supporting media, etc. An extensive literature describes the use of these methods for the investigation of differ ent systems. A number of papers are theoretical in nature. Thus, the mi croscopic theory has been developed rather completely [13] by considering electrophoresis within the framework of electrokinetic phenomena based on the concept of the electrical double layer.

**AN ELEMENTARY INVESTIGATION OF THE THEORY OF NUMBERS...**

London: J. Johnson, 1811.

Octavo, pp (iii)-(xvi), 507, (3, ads). Original boards, page edges untrimmed. Lacking the half-title leaf. Spine lacking, recent rice paper spine and recent spine label. Front inner hinge repaired with old cloth tape and recent archival paper tape; evidence of removed labels from endpapers front and rear; ink ownership name Thomas Smith, Trinity College, Cambridge, April, 1822. Boards have damp stains, edge wear, corners rounded from wear. Text has occasional foxing but clean and unworn, now tight in the binding. Peter Barlow, F.R.S., 1776-1862, self-educated, was a mathematics master at the Royal Military Academy 1801-47. In 1814 he published NEW MATHEMATICAL TABLES, which became known as Barlow's Tables. They gave the squares, cubes, square roots, cube roots, and reciprocals of all integer numbers from 1 to 10,000. These tables were regularly reprinted until 1965 when computers rendered them obsolete. He helped develope the Barlow lens which in a modified form is still in use today in astronomy. He won the Royal Society's Copley Medal for his work correcting the deviation of ship's compasses caused by iron in the hulls and invented an early electric motor." Perhaps the British mathematican of this period who showed the greatest genius, or at any rate the greatest perseverance, was Peter Barlow. Born of humble parents, he became one of the leading writers of England on the theory of numbers.. " - Smith, History. of Mathematics, I, 460. Barlow's first book.
