#### Chow Rings, Decomposition of the Diagonal, and the Topology of Families (AM-187)

Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 75.00In this book, Claire Voisin provides an introduction to algebraic cycles on complex algebraic varieties, to the major conjectures relating them to cohomology, and even more precisely to Hodge structures on cohomology. The volume is intended for both students and researchers, and not only presents a survey of the geometric methods developed in the... more...

#### Trigonometry For Dummies

Wiley 2014; US$ 19.99A plain-English guide to the basics of trig Trigonometry deals with the relationship between the sides and angles of triangles... mostly right triangles. In practical use, trigonometry is a friend to astronomers who use triangulation to measure the distance between stars. Trig also has applications in fields as broad as financial analysis, music... more...

#### Isosurfaces

CRC Press 2013; US$ 89.95Ever since Lorensen and Cline published their paper on the Marching Cubes algorithm, isosurfaces have been a standard technique for the visualization of 3D volumetric data. Yet there is no book exclusively devoted to isosurfaces. Isosurfaces: Geometry, Topology, and Algorithms represents the first book to focus on basic algorithms for isosurface construction.... more...

You will need to be able... more...

#### Real Algebraic Geometry

Springer 2013; US$ 39.95This book is concerned with one of the most fundamental questions of mathematics: the relationship between algebraic formulas and geometric images.At one of the first international mathematical congresses (in Paris in 1900), Hilbert stated a special case of this question in the form of his 16th problem (from his list of 23 problems left over from the... more...

#### A Guide to the Classification Theorem for Compact Surfaces

Springer 2013; US$ 49.95This welcome boon for students of algebraic topology cuts a much-needed central path between other texts whose treatment of the classification theorem for compact surfaces is either too formalized and complex for those without detailed background knowledge, or too informal to afford students a comprehensive insight into the subject. Its dedicated,... more...

#### Algebraic Geometry and Commutative Algebra

Springer 2013; US$ 89.95Algebraic geometry is a fascinating branch of mathematics that combines methods from both, algebra and geometry. It transcends the limited scope of pure algebra by means of geometric construction principles. Moreover, Grothendieck’s schemes invented in the late 1950s allowed the application of algebraic-geometric methods in fields that formerly... more...

#### Birational Geometry, Rational Curves, and Arithmetic

Springer 2013; US$ 129.00¿¿¿¿This book features recent developments in a rapidly growing area at the interface of higher-dimensional birational geometry and arithmetic geometry. It focuses on the geometry of spaces of rational curves, with an emphasis on applications to arithmetic questions. Classically, arithmetic is the study of rational or... more...

#### Polyhedral and Algebraic Methods in Computational Geometry

Springer 2012; US$ 69.95Polyhedral and Algebraic Methods in Computational Geometry provides a thorough introduction into algorithmic geometry and its applications. It presents its primary topics from the viewpoints of discrete, convex and elementary algebraic geometry.The first part of the book studies classical problems and techniques that refer to polyhedral structures.... more...

#### Introduction to Commutative Algebra and Algebraic Geometry

Springer 2012; US$ 49.95Originally published in 1985, this classic textbook is an English translation of Einführung in die kommutative Algebra und algebraische Geometrie. As part of the Modern Birkhäuser Classics series, the publisher is proud to make Introduction to Commutative Algebra and Algebraic Geometry available to a wider audience. Aimed at students... more...
