The History of Mathematics: An Introduction

The historical past of arithmetic: An advent, 7th version, is written for the only- or two-semester math historical past direction taken via juniors or seniors, and covers the historical past in the back of the themes more often than not lined in an undergraduate math curriculum or in trouble-free faculties or excessive colleges. Elegantly written in David Burton’s imitable prose, this vintage textual content presents wealthy ancient context to the math that undergrad math and math schooling majors stumble upon on a daily basis. Burton illuminates the folks, tales, and social context at the back of arithmetic’ maximum old advances whereas holding acceptable specialize in the mathematical thoughts themselves. Its wealth of data, mathematical and old accuracy, and well known presentation make The historical past of arithmetic: An advent, 7th version a useful source that lecturers and scholars will wish as a part of an enduring library.

A Wealth of Numbers: An Anthology of 500 Years of Popular Mathematics Writing

By Benjamin Wardhaugh

Despite what we might occasionally think, renowned arithmetic writing did not start with Martin Gardner. in truth, it has a wealthy culture stretching again 1000's of years. This interesting and enlightening anthology--the first of its kind--gathers approximately 100 attention-grabbing choices from the previous 500 years of well known math writing, bringing to existence a little-known facet of math historical past. starting from the past due 15th to the past due 20th century, and drawing from books, newspapers, magazines, and internet sites, A Wealth of Numbers comprises leisure, lecture room, and paintings arithmetic; mathematical histories and biographies; debts of upper arithmetic; reasons of mathematical tools; discussions of the way math will be taught and realized; reflections at the position of math on this planet; and math in fiction and humor.

Featuring many methods, video games, difficulties, and puzzles, in addition to a lot heritage and minutiae, the choices contain a sixteenth-century advisor to creating a horizontal sundial; "Newton for the women" (1739); Leonhard Euler at the proposal of pace (1760); "Mathematical Toys" (1785); a poetic model of the rule of thumb of 3 (1792); "Lotteries and Mountebanks" (1801); Lewis Carroll at the online game of good judgment (1887); "Maps and Mazes" (1892); "Einstein's actual success" (1921); "Riddles in arithmetic" (1945); "New Math for folks" (1966); and "PC Astronomy" (1997). equipped through thematic chapters, every one choice is positioned in context through a short creation.

A detailed window into the hidden heritage of renowned arithmetic, A Wealth of Numbers will supply many hours of enjoyable and studying to a person who loves well known arithmetic and science.

Lectures on Curves, Surfaces and Projective Varieties (Ems Textbooks in Mathematics)

This ebook deals a wide-ranging advent to algebraic geometry alongside classical traces. It comprises lectures on subject matters in classical algebraic geometry, together with the elemental homes of projective algebraic types, linear platforms of hypersurfaces, algebraic curves (with precise emphasis on rational curves), linear sequence on algebraic curves, Cremona ameliorations, rational surfaces, and awesome examples of detailed kinds just like the Segre, Grassmann, and Veronese forms. an essential component and specified characteristic of the presentation is the inclusion of many workouts, demanding to discover within the literature and just about all with whole options. The textual content is geared toward scholars within the final years of an undergraduate application in arithmetic. It includes a few quite complex themes compatible for specialised classes on the complicated undergraduate or starting graduate point, in addition to attention-grabbing subject matters for a senior thesis. the necessities were intentionally constrained to uncomplicated components of projective geometry and summary algebra. therefore, for instance, a few wisdom of the geometry of subspaces and homes of fields is believed. The booklet could be welcomed by way of academics and scholars of algebraic geometry who're looking a transparent and panoramic course best from the elemental proof approximately linear subspaces, conics and quadrics to a scientific dialogue of classical algebraic kinds and the instruments had to examine them. The textual content offers an exceptional starting place for forthcoming extra complicated and summary literature.

The Man Who Counted: A Collection of Mathematical Adventures

By Malba Tahan, Patricia Reid Baquero

“A nice storyteller.”―Paulo Coelho, writer of The Alchemist

Malba Tahan is the production of a celebrated Brazilian mathematician searching for the way to carry many of the mysteries and pleasures of arithmetic to a much broader public. The adventures of Beremiz Samir, the fellow Who Counted, take the reader on a trip within which, again and again, Samir summons his notable mathematical powers to settle disputes, provide clever recommendation, conquer risky enemies, and win for himself status, fortune, and wealthy rewards. We research of prior mathematicians and are available to appreciate Samir’s knowledge and persistence. within the grace of Tahan’s telling, those tales carry strange delights for the reader. 34 illustrations

Mod Two Homology and Cohomology (Universitext)

Cohomology and homology modulo 2 is helping the reader snatch extra with ease the fundamentals of a tremendous instrument in algebraic topology. in comparison to a extra common method of (co)homology this fresh strategy has many pedagogical advantages:

1. It leads extra quick to the necessities of the subject,
2. a scarcity of indicators and orientation issues simplifies the theory,
3. Computations and complicated purposes might be awarded at an previous degree,
4. basic geometrical interpretations of (co)chains.

Mod 2 (co)homology used to be constructed within the first region of the 20th century instead to indispensable homology, sooner than either turned specific situations of (co)homology with arbitrary coefficients.

The first chapters of this publication may well function a foundation for a graduate-level introductory direction to (co)homology. Simplicial and singular mod 2 (co)homology are brought, with their items and Steenrod squares, in addition to equivariant cohomology. Classical functions comprise Brouwer's fastened element theorem, Poincaré duality, Borsuk-Ulam theorem, Hopf invariant, Smith conception, Kervaire invariant, and so forth. The cohomology of flag manifolds is taken care of intimately (without spectral sequences), together with the connection among Stiefel-Whitney periods and Schubert calculus. more moderen advancements also are coated, together with topological complexity, face areas, equivariant Morse thought, conjugation areas, polygon areas, among others. every one bankruptcy ends with workouts, with a few tricks and solutions on the finish of the book.

Mathematics of the Transcendental: Onto-logy and being-there

By Alain Badiou

Filenote: PDF retail from ebsco. i don't comprehend whether it is a greater caliber than PDF retail already upped (no be aware to assert from the place at the current torrent), however it is a unique dimension. identify was once in ebrary yet now withdrawn. I additionally don't know tips on how to technically confirm the picture caliber e.g what dpi. maybe for those who recognize, publish a remark. The web page 60 photograph is readible yet no longer crystal transparent in my book.
--------------

In Mathematics of the Transcendental, Alain Badiou painstakingly works throughout the pertinent features of type conception, demonstrating their inner common sense and veracity, their derivation and contrast from Set thought, and the 'thinking of being'. In doing so he units out the elemental onto-logical necessities of his higher and transcendental logics as articulated in his magnum opus, Logics of Worlds. this significant booklet combines either his elaboration of the disjunctive synthesis among ontology and onto-logy (the discourses of being as such and being-appearing) from the point of view of type idea and the categorial foundation of his philosophical notion of 'being there'.

Hitherto unpublished in both French or English, Mathematics of the Transcendental presents Badiou's readers with a much-needed entire elaboration of his knowing and use of classification concept.

The publication is an important relief to figuring out the mathematical and logical foundation of his conception of showing as elaborated in Logics of Worlds [/i]and different works and is key studying for his many fans.
