  • The Universe in Zero Wordsby Dana Mackenzie

    Princeton University Press 2012; US$ 19.95

    Most popular books about science, and even about mathematics, tiptoe around equations as if they were something to be hidden from the reader's tender eyes. Dana Mackenzie starts from the opposite premise: He celebrates equations. No history of art would be complete without pictures. Why, then, should a history of mathematics--the universal language... more...

  • Stochastic Numerical Methodsby Ra?l Toral; Pere Colet

    Wiley 2014; US$ 68.95

    Stochastic Numerical Methods introduces at Master level the numerical methods that use probability or stochastic concepts to analyze random processes. The book aims at being rather general and is addressed at students of natural sciences (Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, Biology, etc.) and Engineering, but also social sciences (Economy, Sociology,... more...

  • Taming the Unknownby Victor J. Katz; Karen Hunger Parshall

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 49.50

    What is algebra? For some, it is an abstract language of x?s and y?s. For mathematics majors and professional mathematicians, it is a world of axiomatically defined constructs like groups, rings, and fields. Taming the Unknown considers how these two seemingly different types of algebra evolved and how they relate. Victor Katz and Karen Parshall... more...

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

    Felix Meiner Verlag 2012; US$ 54.84

    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.

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

    Diplomica Verlag 2012; US$ 39.40

    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...

  • 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...
