Elements of Mathematics: From Euclid to Gdel
ISBN: 9780691178547 / Angielski / Miękka / 2017 / 440 str. Termin realizacji zamówienia: ok. 812 dni roboczych. Elements of Mathematics takes readers on a fascinating tour that begins in elementary mathematicsbut, as John Stillwell shows, this subject is not as elementary or straightforward as one might think. Not all topics that are part of today's elementary mathematics were always considered as such, and great mathematical advances and discoveries had to occur in order for certain subjects to become "elementary." Stillwell examines elementary mathematics from a distinctive twentyfirstcentury viewpoint and describes not only the beauty and scope of the discipline, but also its...

Reverse Mathematics: Proofs from the Inside Out
ISBN: 9780691177175 / Angielski / Twarda / 2018 / 200 str. Termin realizacji zamówienia: ok. 812 dni roboczych. This book presents reverse mathematics to a general mathematical audience for the first time. Reverse mathematics is a new field that answers some old questions. In the two thousand years that mathematicians have been deriving theorems from axioms, it has often been asked: which axioms are needed to prove a given theorem? Only in the last two hundred years have some of these questions been answered, and only in the last forty years has a systematic approach been developed. In Reverse Mathematics, John Stillwell gives a representative view of this field, emphasizing basic... This book presents reverse mathematics to a general mathematical audience for the first time.

Naive Lie Theory
ISBN: 9781441926814 / Angielski / Miękka / 2010 / 217 str. Termin realizacji zamówienia: ok. 18 dni roboczych. In this new textbook, acclaimed author John Stillwell presents a lucid introduction to Lie theory suitable for junior and senior level undergraduates. In order to achieve this, he focuses on the socalled classical groups that capture the symmetries of real, complex, and quaternion spaces. These symmetry groups may be represented by matrices, which allows them to be studied by elementary methods from calculus and linear algebra. This naive approach to Lie theory is originally due to von Neumann, and it is now possible to streamline it by using standard results of undergraduate mathematics. To...

Numbers and Geometry
ISBN: 9781461268673 / Angielski / Miękka / 2012 / 343 str. Termin realizacji zamówienia: ok. 18 dni roboczych. A beautiful and relatively elementary account of a part of mathematics where three main fields  algebra, analysis and geometry  meet. The book provides a broad view of these subjects at the level of calculus, without being a calculus book. Its roots are in arithmetic and geometry, the two opposite poles of mathematics, and the source of historic conceptual conflict. The resolution of this conflict, and its role in the development of mathematics, is one of the main stories in the book. Stillwell has chosen an array of exciting and worthwhile topics and elegantly combines mathematical history...

Geometry of Surfaces
ISBN: 9780387977430 / Angielski / Miękka / 1995 / 236 str. Termin realizacji zamówienia: ok. 18 dni roboczych. Geometry used to be the basis of a mathematical education; today it is not even a standard undergraduate topic. Much as I deplore this situation, I welcome the opportunity to make a fresh start. Classical geometry is no longer an adequate basis for mathematics or physicsboth of which are becoming increasingly geometricand geometry can no longer be divorced from algebra, topology, and analysis. Students need a geometry of greater scope, and the fact that there is no room for geometry in the curriculum un til the third or fourth year at least allows us to assume some mathematical background....

Classical Topology and Combinatorial Group Theory
ISBN: 9781461287490 / Angielski / Miękka / 2011 / 336 str. Termin realizacji zamówienia: ok. 18 dni roboczych. In recent years, many students have been introduced to topology in high school mathematics. Having met the Mobius band, the seven bridges of Konigsberg, Euler's polyhedron formula, and knots, the student is led to expect that these picturesque ideas will come to full flower in university topology courses. What a disappointment "undergraduate topology" proves to be In most institutions it is either a service course for analysts, on abstract spaces, or else an introduction to homological algebra in which the only geometric activity is the completion of commutative diagrams. Pictures are kept...

Elements of Algebra: Geometry, Numbers, Equations
ISBN: 9781441928399 / Angielski / Miękka / 2010 / 184 str. Termin realizacji zamówienia: ok. 18 dni roboczych. Algebra is abstract mathematics  let us make no bones about it  yet it is also applied mathematics in its best and purest form. It is not abstraction for its own sake, but abstraction for the sake of efficiency, power and insight. Algebra emerged from the struggle to solve concrete, physical problems in geometry, and succeeded after 2000 years of failure by other forms of mathematics. It did this by exposing the mathematical structure of geometry, and by providing the tools to analyse it. This is typical of the way algebra is applied; it is the best and purest form of application because it...

The Real Numbers: An Introduction to Set Theory and Analysis
ISBN: 9783319015767 / Angielski / Twarda / 2013 / 244 str. Termin realizacji zamówienia: ok. 18 dni roboczych. While most texts on real analysis are content to assume the real numbers, or to treat them only briefly, this text makes a serious study of the real number system and the issues it brings to light. Analysis needs the real numbers to model the line, and to support the concepts of continuity and measure. But these seemingly simple requirements lead to deep issues of set theoryuncountability, the axiom of choice, and large cardinals. In fact, virtually all the concepts of infinite set theory are needed for a proper understanding of the real numbers, and hence of analysis itself. By...

Elements of Number Theory
ISBN: 9781441930668 / Angielski / Miękka / 2010 / 256 str. Termin realizacji zamówienia: ok. 18 dni roboczych. This book is intended to complement my Elements oi Algebra, and it is similarly motivated by the problem of solving polynomial equations. However, it is independent of the algebra book, and probably easier. In Elements oi Algebra we sought solution by radicals, and this led to the concepts of fields and groups and their fusion in the celebrated theory of Galois. In the present book we seek integer solutions, and this leads to the concepts of rings and ideals which merge in the equally celebrated theory of ideals due to Kummer and Dedekind. Solving equations in integers is the central problem...
