Math Proofs Demystified
ISBN: 9780071445764 / Angielski / Miękka / 290 str. Termin realizacji zamówienia: ok. 58 dni roboczych. Almost every student has to study some sort of mathematical proofs, whether it be in geometry, trigonometry, or with higherlevel topics. In addition, mathematical theorems have become an interesting course for many students outside of the mathematical arena, purely for the reasoning and logic that is needed to complete them. Therefore, it is not uncommon to have philosophy and law students grappling with proofs. This book is the perfect resource for demystifying the techniques and principles that govern the mathematical proof area, and is done with the standard "Demystified" level, questions...

Analysis on Symmetric Cones
ISBN: 9780198534778 / Angielski / Twarda / 400 str. Termin realizacji zamówienia: ok. 58 dni roboczych. Analysis on Symmetric Cones is the first book to provide a systematic and clear introduction to the theory of symmetric cones, a subject of growing importance in number theory and multivariate analysis. Beginning with an elementary description of the Jordan algebra approach to the geometric and algebraic foundations of the theory, the book goes on to discuss harmonic analysis and special functions associated with symmetric cones, tying these results together with the study of holomorphic functions on bounded symmetric domains of tube type. Written by algebraic geometers, the book contains a...

Foliations and the Geometry of 3Manifolds
ISBN: 9780198570080 / Angielski / Twarda / 352 str. Termin realizacji zamówienia: ok. 58 dni roboczych. This unique reference, aimed at research topologists, gives an exposition of the 'pseudoAnosov' theory of foliations of 3manifolds. This theory generalizes Thurston's theory of surface automorphisms and reveals an intimate connection between dynamics, geometry and topology in 3 dimensions. Significant themes returned to throughout the text include the importance of geometry, especially the hyperbolic geometry of surfaces, the importance of monotonicity, especially in 1dimensional and codimensional dynamics, and combinatorial approximation, using finite combinatorical objects such as...

Inversions
ISBN: 9780226034997 / Angielski / Miękka / 77 str. Termin realizacji zamówienia: ok. 58 dni roboczych. In this book, I. Ya. Bakel'man introduces inversion transformations in the Euclidean plane and discusses the interrelationships among more general mathematical concepts. The author begins by defining and giving examples of the concept of a transformation in the Euclidean plane, and then explains the "point of infinity" and the "stereographic projection" of the sphere onto the plane. With this preparation, the student is capable of applying the theory of inversions to classical construction problems in the plane.
The author also discusses the theory of pencils of circles, and he uses the... In this book, I. Ya. Bakel'man introduces inversion transformations in the Euclidean plane and discusses the interrelationships among more general mat...

The Decomposition of Figures Into Smaller Parts
ISBN: 9780226063577 / Angielski / Miękka / 80 str. Termin realizacji zamówienia: ok. 58 dni roboczych. In contrast to the vast literature on Euclidean geometry as a whole, little has been published on the relatively recent developments in the field of combinatorial geometry. Boltyanskii and Gohberg's book investigates this area, which has undergone particularly rapid growth in the last thirty years. By restricting themselves to two dimensions, the authors make the book uniquely accessible to interested high school students while maintaining a high level of rigor. They discuss a variety of problems on figures of constant width, convex figures, coverings, and illumination. The book offers a...

Was Pythagoras Chinese?: An Examination of Right Triangle Theory in Ancient China
ISBN: 9780271012384 / Angielski / Miękka / 108 str. Termin realizacji zamówienia: ok. 58 dni roboczych. The title of this monograph, while intended to intrigue and attract the otherwise unresponsive reader, is not whimsically conceived. Of course, the historical figure of mathematical fame known as Pythagoras, born on the island of Samos in the 6th century B.C., was Greek, not Chinese. But there is another "Pythagoras" equally deserving fame. He is the man who first proved the proposition that "the sum of the squares of the legs of a right triangle is equal to the square of the hypotenuse." For hundreds of years this theorem has borne the name of Pythagoras of Samos, but was he really the...

Fractals

This lovely little book will take off and fly on its own power, but the author has asked me to write a few words, and one should not say no to a friend. Specific topics in fractal geometry and its applications have already benefited from several excellent surveys of moderate length, and gossip and preliminary drafts tell us that we shall soon see several monographic treatments of broader topics. For the teacher, however, these surveys and monographs are not enough, and an urgent need for more helpful books has been widely recognized. To write such a book is no easy task, but Jens Feder meets...

Recurrence in Topological Dynamics: Furstenberg Families and Ellis Actions
ISBN: 9780306455506 / Angielski / Twarda / 266 str. Termin realizacji zamówienia: ok. 58 dni roboczych. In the long run of a dynamical system, after transient phenomena have passed away, what remains is recurrence. An orbit is recurrent when it returns repeatedly to each neighborhood of its initial position. We can sharpen the concept by insisting that the returns occur with at least some prescribed frequency. For example, an orbit lies in some minimal subset if and only if it returns almost periodically to each neighborhood of the initial point. That is, each return time set is a socalled syndetic subset ofT= the positive reals (continuous time system) or T = the positive integers (discrete...

The Four Pillars of Geometry
ISBN: 9780387255309 / Angielski / Twarda / 227 str. Termin realizacji zamówienia: ok. 58 dni roboczych. Many people think there is only one right way to teach geometry. For two millennia, the right way was Euclid s way, and it is still good in many respects. But in the 1950s the cry Down with triangles was heard in France and new geometry books appeared, packed with linear algebra but with no diagrams. Was this the new right way, or was the right way something else again, perhaps transformation groups? In this book, I wish to show that geometry can be developed in four fundamentally different ways, and that all should be used if the subject is to be shown in all its splendor. Euclidstyle...

Projective geometry is simpler: its constructions require only a ruler. In projective geometry one never measures anything, instead, one relates one set of points to another by a projectivity. The first two chapters of this book introduce the important concepts of the subject and provide the logical foundations. The third and fourth chapters introduce the famous theorems of Desargues and Pappus. Chapters 5 and 6 make use of projectivities on a line and plane, repectively.

At the present time, the average undergraduate mathematics major finds mathematics heavily compartmentalized. After the calculus, he takes a course in analysis and a course in algebra. Depending upon his interests (or those of his department), he takes courses in special topics. Ifhe is exposed to topology, it is usually straightforward point set topology; if he is exposed to geom etry, it is usually classical differential geometry. The exciting revelations that there is some unity in mathematics, that fields overlap, that techniques of one field have applications in another, are denied the...

Most of the material is presented in an informal fashion, by means of worked examples in the hope that this clarifies the use of centre manifold theory. The main application of centre manifold theory given in these notes is to dynamic bifurcation theory. Dynamic bifurcation...
