  • Elements of Set Theoryby Herbert B. Enderton

    Elsevier Science 1977; US$ 72.95

    This is an introductory undergraduate textbook in set theory. In mathematics these days, essentially everything is a set. Some knowledge of set theory is necessary part of the background everyone needs for further study of mathematics. It is also possible to study set theory for its own interest--it is a subject with intruiging results anout simple... more...

  • Lösbarkeit von Gleichungen höheren Grades: Geschichte - Historische Verfahren - Neue Verfahrenby Gudrun Otto

    Diplomica Verlag 2012; US$ 40.82

    Hauptbeschreibung Das Auffinden von Lösungen für Gleichungen höheren Grades beschäftigt Mathematiker aller Regionen und aller Epochen seit nun mehr ca. 4000 Jahren und ist sogar namensgebend für eines der wichtigsten Teilgebiete der Mathematik. Die Bezeichnung Algebra ist abgeleitet aus dem Titel des Buchs Hisab al-gabr w'al muqabala ("Über die... more...

  • Paradoxien des Unendlichenby Bernard Bolzano; Christian Tapp; Christian Tapp

    Felix Meiner Verlag 2012; US$ 56.02

    Hauptbeschreibung Die "Paradoxien des Unendlichen" sind ein Klassiker der Philosophie der Mathematik und zugleich eine gute Einführung in das Denken des "Urgroßvaters" der analytischen Philosophie. Das Unendliche - seit jeher ein Faszinosum für die philosophische Reflexion - wurde in der Zeit nach der Grundlegung der Analysis durch Leibniz und Newton... more...

  • Sets for Mathematicsby F. William Lawvere; Robert Rosebrugh

    Cambridge University Press 2003; US$ 50.00

    For the first time in a textbook, categorical algebra is used to build a foundation for the study of geometry, analysis, and algebra. more...

  • The Covering Property Axiom, CPAby Krzysztof Ciesielski; Janusz Pawlikowski

    Cambridge University Press 2004; US$ 96.00

    Explores a new axiom of set theory, which simplifies proofs, provides deeper insight, and leads to new results. more...

  • Mathematics and the Divineby Teun Koetsier; Luc Bergmans

    Elsevier Science 2004; US$ 325.00

    Mathematics and the Divine seem to correspond to diametrically opposed tendencies of the human mind. Does the mathematician not seek what is precisely defined, and do the objects intended by the mystic and the theologian not lie beyond definition? Is mathematics not Man's search for a measure, and isn?t the Divine that which is immeasurable ? The present... more...

  • Mathematics and the Laws of Natureby John Tabak

    Infobase Publishing 2004; US$ 40.00

    Examining the pioneering ideas, works, and applications that have made math the language of science, Mathematics and the Laws of Nature looks at the many ways in which so-called ''pure'' math has been used in the applied sciences. For example, the volume explores how mathematical theories contributed to the development of Kepler's laws of planetary... more...

  • Mathematics and the Historian's Craftby Michael Kinyon; Glen van Brummelen

    Springer-Verlag New York Inc 2006; US$ 119.00

    This book brings together for the first time the Kenneth May Lectures that were given at the annual meetings of the Canadian Society for History and Philosophy of Mathematics. All contributions are of high scholarly value, yet accessible to an audience with a wide range of interests. more...

  • Set Theoryby Joan Bagaria; Stevo Todorcevic

    Springer 2006; US$ 169.00

    Contains survey papers on some of the mainstream areas of set theory and research. This book covers topics such as Omega-logic, applications of set theory to lattice theory and Boolean algebras, real-valued measurable cardinals, complexity of sets and relations in continuum theory, weak subsystems of axiomatic set theory, and more. more...

  • Field Arithmeticby Michael D. Fried

    Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 159.00

    Field Arithmetic explores Diophantine fields through their absolute Galois groups. This largely self-contained treatment starts with techniques from algebraic geometry, number theory, and profinite groups. Graduate students can effectively learn generalizations of finite field ideas. We use Haar measure on the absolute Galois group to replace counting... more...
