#### Towards a Philosophy of Real Mathematics

Cambridge University Press 2003; US$ 56.00Corfield sets out a variety of approaches to new thinking about the philosophy of mathematics. more...

#### Multifrequency Oscillations of Nonlinear Systems

Springer 2005; US$ 127.00In contrast to other books devoted to the averaging method and the method of integral manifolds, in the present book we study oscillation systems with many varying frequencies. In the process of evolution, systems of this type can pass from one resonance state into another. more...

#### 18 Unconventional Essays on the Nature of Mathematics

Springer New York 2006; US$ 89.99This book comes from the Internet. Browsing the Web, I stumbled on philosophers, cognitive scientists, sociologists, computer scientists, even mathematicians!?saying original, provocative things about mathematics. And many of these people had probably never heard of each other! So I have collected them here. This way, they can read each other?s work.... more...

#### Accurate Clock Pendulums

Oxford University Press, UK 2004; US$ 144.99Almost all of a pendulum clock's accuracy resides in its pendulum. If the pendulum is accurate, the clock will be accurate. In this book, the author describes how to make a more accurate pendulum or pendulum clock. All scientific aspects of the pendulum design and operation are explained in simple terms and backed up with experimental data. - ;The... more...

#### The Limits of Abstraction

Oxford University Press 2008; US$ 37.99Kit Fine develops a Fregean theory of abstraction, and suggests that it may yield a new philosophical foundation for mathematics, one that can account for both our reference to various mathematical objects and our knowledge of various mathematical truths. <i>The Limits of Abstraction</i> breaks new ground both technically and philosophically.... more...

#### Chaotic Behaviour of Deterministic Dissipative Systems

Cambridge University Press 1991; US$ 56.00This graduate text surveys both the theoretical and experimental aspects of deterministic chaotic behaviour. more...

#### Metaphysical Myths, Mathematical Practice

Cambridge University Press 1994; US$ 36.00Jody Azzouni argues that mathematical knowledge really is a special kind of knowledge with its own special means of gathering evidence. more...

#### The Principles of Mathematics Revisited

Cambridge University Press 1996; US$ 44.00Hintikka proposes a new logic and uses it to explore the foundations of mathematics. more...

#### The Chaotic Pendulum

World Scientific Publishing Company 2010; US$ 101.00Pendulum is the simplest nonlinear system, which, however, provides the means for the description of different phenomena in Nature that occur in physics, chemistry, biology, medicine, communications, economics and sociology. The chaotic behavior of pendulum is usually associated with the random force acting on a pendulum (Brownian motion). Another... more...
