#### Elasticity and Plasticity of Large Deformations

Springer 2011; US$ 99.00Nonlinear Continuum Mechanics is a rapidly growing field of research. Since the last edition of this book, many important results in this field have been published. This new edition refers to the most important results. The part on hyperelastic models and anisotropic yield criteria has been enlarged and an outlook on Material Plasticity has been added. 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. However, did you know that for a long period of time people could not get their heads around the idea of zero, a figure representing nothing, and that it was even regarded... more...

#### The Tiger That Isn't

Profile Books 2010; US$ 11.98Mathematics scares and depresses most of us, but politicians, journalists and everyone in power use numbers all the time to bamboozle us. Most maths is really simple - as easy as 2+2 in fact. Better still it can be understood without any jargon, any formulas - and in fact not even many numbers. Most of it is commonsense, and by using a few really... more...

#### A Modern Perspective on Type Theory

Springer 2004; US$ 249.00Towards the end of the nineteenth century, Frege gave us the abstraction principles and the general notion of functions. Self-application of functions was at the heart of Russell's paradox. This led Russell to introduce type theory in order to avoid the paradox. Since, the twentieth century has seen an amazing number of theories concerned with types... more...
