#### Fluctuations in Markov Processes

Springer 2012; US$ 129.00The present volume contains the most advanced theories on the martingale approach to central limit theorems. Using the time symmetry properties of the Markov processes, the book develops the techniques that allow us to deal with infinite dimensional models that appear in statistical mechanics and engineering (interacting particle systems, homogenization... more...

#### Variational, Topological, and Partial Order Methods with their Applications

Springer 2012; US$ 129.00Nonlinear functional analysis is an important branch of contemporary mathematics. It's related to topology, ordinary differential equations, partial differential equations, groups, dynamical systems, differential geometry, measure theory, and more. In this book, the author presents some new and interesting results on fundamental methods in nonlinear... more...

#### Complex Kleinian Groups

Springer 2012; US$ 109.00This monograph lays down the foundations of the theory of complex Kleinian groups, a newly born area of mathematics whose origin traces back to the work of Riemann, Poincaré, Picard and many others. Kleinian groups are, classically, discrete groups of conformal automorphisms of the Riemann sphere, and these can be regarded too as being groups... more...

#### The Images of Science Through Cultural Lenses

Springer 2012; US$ 69.95Are the images of science held by learners the same across cultures? What are the implications for science education? This book explores the nature of science from a cultural perspective.

#### Opening the Cage

Springer 2012; US$ 69.95The picture on the front of this book is an illustration for Totakahini: The tale of the parrot, by Rabindranath Tagore, in which he satirized education as a magnificent golden cage. Opening the cage addresses mathematics education as a complex socio-political phenomenon, exploring the vast terrain that spans critique and politics. Opening the cage... more...

#### ALTERNATIVE FORMS OF KNOWING (IN) MATHEMATICS

Springer 1900; US$ 69.95This book grew out of a public lecture series, Alternative forms of knowledge construction in mathematics, conceived and organized by the first editor, and held annually at Portland State University from 2006. Starting from the position that mathematics is a human construction, implying that it cannot be separated from its historical, cultural, social,... more...
