JOHN RYAN was born in Edinburgh and spent his early childhood in the UK and Morocco before moving back to England, where he worked for seven years as Assistant Art Master of Harrow School. Captain Pugwash first set sail over 50 years ago as a strip cartoon. Since then he has featured in books, films and theatres all over the world. Before his death in 2009 aged 88, John lived in Rye, Sussex, the home of smugglers in years gone by, with his wife Priscilla, who is also an artist. He has three children and a regular crew of grandchildren.
Frances Lincoln are delighted to present paperback editions of this classic picture book series. There's nothing more likely to prompt our portly hero into action than the prospect of treasure. So when the valiant cabin boy Tom espies a mound of yellow stuff aboard a nearby ship, the Captain sets off in hot pursuit. Unfortunately, his villainous arch-enemy, the horrible Cut-throat Jake, is not far away. Will the Captain be trapped by Jake's dastardly plan? Or will Tom, the wisest little cabin boy on the Seven Seas, have a plan of his own...?
The return of this wonderful piratical romp sees Captain Pugwash and his resourceful cabin boy Tom outwit the British Navy! Relaxing on a beach in the Pacific, the Captain and his crew learn that the Admiral of the British Navy is on a mission to capture him and bring him back alive! When a ship sails into the bay, the Captain and his crew hide. Luckily, Tom is braver and more resourceful. Soon he has identified the ship and found a way to ensure that its owner – Pugwash’s arch-enemy Cut-Throat Jake – ends up being arrested instead. The additional audio book brings the book alive with the addition of music and sound effects of the pirates’ life at sea.
That most unlikely of pirates, the greedy, selfish Captain Pugwash is at the helm once more. And his familiar crew are all aboard. It's mutiny aboard the Black Pig! Captain Pugwash and his faithful cabin boy Tom are cast ashore - but then the crew come face to face with the fearsome Cut-throat Jake...And that same evil villain appears again when Pugwash throws a fabulous fancy-dress party and some very unwelcome guests arrive to spoil the fun. Two more funny stories featuring this lovable rogue.
A simple Little Red Train book introducing young children to the concept of trains. Duffy drives the engine; carriages carry young people; trucks carry animals; and Jack the Guard stands at the back.
This new book contains the most up-to-date and focused description of the applications of Clifford algebras in analysis, particularly classical harmonic analysis. It is the first single volume devoted to applications of Clifford analysis to other aspects of analysis. All chapters are written by world authorities in the area. Of particular interest is the contribution of Professor Alan McIntosh. He gives a detailed account of the links between Clifford algebras, monogenic and harmonic functions and the correspondence between monogenic functions and holomorphic functions of several complex variables under Fourier transforms. He describes the correspondence between algebras of singular integrals on Lipschitz surfaces and functional calculi of Dirac operators on these surfaces. He also discusses links with boundary value problems over Lipschitz domains. Other specific topics include Hardy spaces and compensated compactness in Euclidean space; applications to acoustic scattering and Galerkin estimates; scattering theory for orthogonal wavelets; applications of the conformal group and Vahalen matrices; Newmann type problems for the Dirac operator; plus much, much more! Clifford Algebras in Analysis and Related Topics also contains the most comprehensive section on open problems available. The book presents the most detailed link between Clifford analysis and classical harmonic analysis. It is a refreshing break from the many expensive and lengthy volumes currently found on the subject.
