#### Die verflixte Mathematik der Demokratie (German Edition)

Springer 2011; US$ 39.99Der Band erläutert die mathematischen Hintergründe der demokratischen Wahlsysteme und führt dabei zugleich in ihre Geschichte ein. Die Mehrheitswahl und die Zuteilung von Sitzen im Parlament etwa werfen mathematische Fragen auf, deren Lösung überraschend schwierig ist. Wie viele Sitze bekommt zum Beispiel eine Partei, die 23,6 Prozent der Stimmen erhielt?... more...

#### Algebraic Patching

Springer 2011; US$ 129.00Assuming only basic algebra and Galois theory, this book develops the method of 'algebraic patching' to realize finite groups and, more generally, to solve finite split embedding problems over fields. The method succeeds over rational function fields of one variable over 'ample fields'. Among others, it leads to the solution of two... more...

#### As Easy As Pi

Michael O'Mara 2011; US$ 9.99It's hard to imagine a world without numbers in this day and age, when our whole life is centered around commerce and money, and it is the only language that is the same the world over.
