Mathematics and Mind
ISBN: 9780195079296 / Angielski / Twarda / 216 str. Termin realizacji zamówienia: ok. 58 dni roboczych. Those inquiring into the nature of mind have long been interested in the foundations of mathematics, and conversely this branch of knowledge is distinctive in that our access to it is purely through thought. A better understanding of mathematical thought should clarify the conceptual foundations of mathematics, and a deeper grasp of the latter should in turn illuminate the powers of mind through which mathematics is made available to us. The link between conceptions of mind and of mathematics has been a central theme running through the great competing philosophies of mathematics of the...

Mathematical Modeling of Physical Systems: An Introduction
ISBN: 9780195153149 / Angielski / Twarda / 368 str. Termin realizacji zamówienia: ok. 58 dni roboczych. Mathematical Modeling of Physical Systems provides a concise and lucid introduction to mathematical modeling for students and professionals approaching the topic for the first time. It is based on the premise that modeling is as much an art as it is a sciencean art that can be mastered only by sustained practice. To provide that practice, the text contains approximately 100 worked examples and numerous practice problems drawn from civil and biomedical engineering, as well as from economics, physics, and chemistry. Problems range from classical examples, such as Euler's treatment of the...

Naturalism in Mathematics
ISBN: 9780198235736 / Angielski / Twarda / 264 str. Termin realizacji zamówienia: ok. 58 dni roboczych. Naturalism in Mathematics investigates how the most fundamental assumptions of mathematics can be justified. One prevalent philosophical approach to the problemrealismis examined and rejected in favor of another approachnaturalism. Penelope Maddy defines this naturalism, explains the motivation for it, and shows how it can be successfully applied in set theory. Her clear, original treatment of this fundamental issue is informed by current work in both philosophy and mathematics, and will be accessible and enlightening to readers from both disciplines.

Mathematics Without Numbers: Towards a ModalStructural Interpretation
ISBN: 9780198240341 / Angielski / Miękka / 168 str. Termin realizacji zamówienia: ok. 58 dni roboczych. Hellman here presents a detailed interpretation of mathematics as the investigation of "structural possibilities," as opposed to absolute, Platonic objects. After treating the natural numbers and analysis, he extends the approach to set theory, where he demonstrates how to dispense with a fixed universe of sets. Finally, he addresses problems of application to the physical world.

Stable Homotopy and Generalised Homology
ISBN: 9780226005249 / Angielski / Miękka / 384 str. Termin realizacji zamówienia: ok. 58 dni roboczych. J. Frank Adams, the founder of stable homotopy theory, gave a lecture series at the University of Chicago in 1967, 1970, and 1971, the wellwritten notes of which are published in this classic in algebraic topology. The three series focused on Novikov's work on operations in complex cobordism, Quillen's work on formal groups and complex cobordism, and stable homotopy and generalized homology. Adams's exposition of the first two topics played a vital role in setting the stage for modern work on periodicity phenomena in stable homotopy theory. His exposition on the third topic occupies the bulk...

Mathematics and the Unexpected

"In this brief, elegant treatise, assessable to anyone who likes to think, Ivar Ekelund explains some philosophical implications of recent mathematics. He examines randomness, the geometry involved in making predictions, and why general trends are easy to project (it will snow in January) but particulars are practically impossible (it will snow from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. on the 21st)."

Berkeley's Philosophy of Mathematics
ISBN: 9780226398983 / Angielski / Miękka / 329 str. Termin realizacji zamówienia: ok. 58 dni roboczych. In this first modern, critical assessment of the place of mathematics in Berkeley's philosophy and Berkeley's place in the history of mathematics, Douglas M. Jesseph provides a bold reinterpretation of Berkeley's work. Jesseph challenges the prevailing view that Berkeley's mathematical writings are peripheral to his philosophy and argues that mathematics is in fact central to his thought, developing out of his critique of abstraction. Jesseph's argument situates Berkeley's ideas within the larger historical and intellectual context of the Scientific Revolution.

Simplicial Objects in Algebraic Topology
ISBN: 9780226511818 / Angielski / Miękka / 170 str. Termin realizacji zamówienia: ok. 58 dni roboczych. Simplicial sets are discrete analogs of topological spaces. They have played a central role in algebraic topology ever since their introduction in the late 1940s, and they also play an important role in other areas such as geometric topology and algebraic geometry. On a formal level, the homotopy theory of simplicial sets is equivalent to the homotopy theory of topological spaces. In view of this equivalence, one can apply discrete, algebraic techniques to perform basic topological constructions. These techniques are particularly appropriate in the theory of localization and completion of...

The Topological Classification of Stratified Spaces

This book provides the theory for stratified spaces, along with important examples and applications, that is analogous to the surgery theory for manifolds. In the first expository account of this field, Weinberger provides topologists with a new way of looking at the classification theory of singular spaces with his original results.
Divided into three parts, the book begins with an overview of modern highdimensional manifold theory. Rather than including complete proofs of all theorems, Weinberger demonstrates key constructions, gives convenient formulations, and shows the usefulness of...

Wittgenstein's Lectures on the Foundations of Mathematics, Cambridge, 1939
ISBN: 9780226904269 / Angielski / Miękka / 300 str. Termin realizacji zamówienia: ok. 58 dni roboczych. For several terms at Cambridge in 1939, Ludwig Wittgenstein lectured on the philosophical foundations of mathematics. A lecture class taught by Wittgenstein, however, hardly resembled a lecture.
He sat on a chair in the middle of the room, with some of the class sitting in chairs, some on the floor. He never used notes. He paused frequently, sometimes for several minutes, while he puzzled out a problem. He often asked his listeners questions and reacted to their replies. Many meetings were largely conversation. These lectures were attended by, among others, D. A. T. Gasking, J. N.... For several terms at Cambridge in 1939, Ludwig Wittgenstein lectured on the philosophical foundations of mathematics.

"Approval Voting" proposes a compelling way to elect some 500,000 officials in public elections. Under this system voters may vote for, or approve of, as many candidates as they like in multicandidate elections. Among the many benefits of approval voting are its propensity to elect the majority candidate (rather than the strongest minority candidate, as often occurs under plurality voting), its relative invulnerability to insincere or strategic voting, and  by offering voters the opportunity to influence election outcomes more equitably  a probable increase in voter turnout.
