The Reality of Numbers : A Physicalist's Philosophy of Mathematics
ISBN: 9780198249573 / Angielski / Twarda / 376 str. Termin realizacji zamówienia: ok. 22 dni roboczych. Challenging the myth that mathematical objects can be defined into existence, Bigelow here employs Armstrong's metaphysical materialism to cast new light on mathematics. He identifies natural, real, and imaginary numbers and sets with specified physical properties and relations and, by so doing, draws mathematics back from its sterile, abstract exile into the midst of the physical world.

Set Theory with a Universal Set : Exploring an Untyped Universe
ISBN: 9780198514770 / Angielski / Twarda / 176 str. Termin realizacji zamówienia: ok. 22 dni roboczych.

Cardinal Arithmetic
ISBN: 9780198537854 / Angielski / Twarda / 520 str. Termin realizacji zamówienia: ok. 22 dni roboczych. Is the continuum hypothesis still open? If we interpret it as finding the laws of cardinal arithmetic (or exponentiation, since addition and multiplication were classically solved), the hypothesis would be solved by the independence results of Godel, Cohen, and Easton, with some isolated positive results (like GavinHajnal). Most mathematicians expect that only more independence results remain to be proved. In Cardinal Arithmetic, however, Saharon Shelah offers an alternative view. By redefining the hypothesis, he gets new results for the conventional cardinal arithmetic, finds new...

Basic Set Theory
ISBN: 9780486420790 / Angielski / Miękka / 416 str. Termin realizacji zamówienia: ok. 1618 dni roboczych. Although this book deals with basic set theory (in general, it stops short of areas where modeltheoretic methods are used) on a rather advanced level, it does it at an unhurried pace. This enables the author to pay close attention to interesting and important aspects of the topic that might otherwise be skipped over. Written for upperlevel undergraduate and graduate students, the book is divided into two parts. The first covers pure set theory, including the basic notions, order and wellfoundedness, cardinal numbers, the ordinals, and the axiom of choice and some of its consequences. The...

The Philosophy of Set Theory : An
ISBN: 9780486435206 / Angielski / Miękka / 256 str. Termin realizacji zamówienia: ok. 1618 dni roboczych. A century ago, Georg Cantor demonstrated the possibility of a series of transfinite infinite numbers. His methods, unorthodox for the time, enabled him to derive theorems that established a mathematical reality for a hierarchy of infinities. Cantor's innovation was opposed, and ignored, by the establishment; years later, the value of his work was recognized and appreciated as a landmark in mathematical thought, forming the beginning of set theory and the foundation for most of contemporary mathematics.
As Cantor's sometime collaborator, David Hilbert, remarked, No one will drive us from... A century ago, Georg Cantor demonstrated the possibility of a series of transfinite infinite numbers. His methods, unorthodox for the time, enabled hi...

This text for undergraduates offers a natural introduction, developing the subject through observations of the physical world. Its progressive development leads from concrete finite sets to cardinal numbers, infinite cardinals, and ordinals.
Although set theory begins in the intuitive and the concrete, it ascends to a very high degree of abstraction. All that is necessary to its grasp, declares author Joseph Breuer, is patience.

Topos theory has led to unexpected connections between classical and constructive mathematics. This text explores Lawvere and Tierney's concept of topos theory, a development in category theory that unites important but seemingly diverse notions from algebraic geometry, set theory, and intuitionistic logic. A virtually selfcontained introduction, this volume presents toposes as the models of theories  known as local set theories  formulated within a typed intuitionistic logic.

Combinatorics : Set Systems, Hypergraphs, Families of Vectors, and Combinatorial Probability
ISBN: 9780521337038 / Angielski / Miękka / 192 str. Termin realizacji zamówienia: ok. 22 dni roboczych. Combinatorics is a book whose main theme is the study of subsets of a finite set. It gives a thorough grounding in the theories of set systems and hypergraphs, while providing an introduction to matroids, designs, combinatorial probability and Ramsey theory for infinite sets. The gems of the theory are emphasized: beautiful results with elegant proofs. The book developed from a course at Louisiana State University and combines a careful presentation with the informal style of those lectures. It should be an ideal text for senior undergraduates and beginning graduates.
