  • The Four Pillars of Geometryby John Stillwell

    Springer New York 2005; US$ 40.22

    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... more...

  • Naive Lie Theoryby John Stillwell

    Springer New York 2008; US$ 41.23

    This book aims to fill a gap in the literature by introducing Lie theory to junior and senior level undergraduates. In order to achieve this, the author focuses on the so-called "classical groups,'' viewed as matrix groups with real, complex, or quaternion entries. This allows them to be studied by elementary methods from calculus and linear algebra.... more...

  • The Real Numbersby John Stillwell

    Springer International Publishing 2013; US$ 39.18

    This text plugs a gap in the standard curriculum by linking set theory with analysis. It features a distinctive, detailed treatment of the real numbers system, and combines an introduction to set theory with exposition of the essence of analysis. more...

  • Elements of Mathematicsby John Stillwell

    Princeton University Press 2016; US$ 36.35

    Elements of Mathematics takes readers on a fascinating tour that begins in elementary mathematics—but, 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... more...

  • Planning Support Systems Best Practice and New Methodsby Stan Geertman; John Stillwell

    Springer Netherlands 2009; US$ 256.41

    Taking as its subject the particular set of geo-information technologies known as Planning Support Systems (PSS), this text focuses on their practical application. It sets out both best practice and new methods for creating the next generation of PSS. more...

  • Population Dynamics and Projection Methodsby John Stillwell; Martin Clarke

    Springer Netherlands 2011; US$ 145.55

    CRC Press 2010; US$ 45.95

    Winner of a CHOICE Outstanding Academic Title Award for 2011! This book offers an introduction to modern ideas about infinity and their implications for mathematics. It unifies ideas from set theory and mathematical logic, and traces their effects on mainstream mathematical topics of today, such as number theory and combinatorics. The treatment is... more...

  • Ethnicity and Integrationby John Stillwell; Maarten van Ham

    Springer Netherlands 2010; US$ 222.82

    The theme of this volume is ethnicity and the implications for integration of our increasingly ethnically diversified population. New research findings from a range of census, survey and administrative data sources are presented, and case studies are included. more...

  • Fertility, Living Arrangements, Care and Mobilityby John Stillwell; Ernestina Coast; Dylan Kneale

    Springer Netherlands 2009; US$ 167.94

    This book examines some important trends that have underpinned reductions in fertility. It demonstrates how relationships between partners have resulted in new living arrangements with changing attitudes from marriage to co-habitation as the social norm. more...
