#### The Principia

University of California Press 2014; US$ 52.95In his monumental 1687 work Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica , known familiarly as the Principia , Isaac Newton laid out in mathematical terms the principles of time, force, and motion that have guided the development of modern physical science. Even after more than three centuries and the revolutions of Einsteinian relativity and quantum... more...

#### Introducing Philosophy of Mathematics

Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 24.95What is mathematics about? Does the subject-matter of mathematics exist independently of the mind or are they mental constructions? How do we know mathematics? Is mathematical knowledge logical knowledge? And how is mathematics applied to the material world? In this introduction to the philosophy of mathematics, Michele Friend examines these and other... more...

#### Discrete Mechanics

Wiley 2014; US$ 130.00This book presents the fundamental principles of mechanics to re-establish the equations of Discrete Mechanics. It introduces physics and thermodynamics associated to the physical modeling. The development and the complementarity of sciences lead to review today the old concepts that were the basis for the development of continuum mechanics. The differential... more...

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

Springer-Verlag New York Inc 2006; US$ 89.99What is the nature of the objects being studied? What determines the directions and styles in which mathematics progresses (or, perhaps, degenerates)? This book collects some of the writings tackling the problem of giving an account of the nature, purpose, and justification of mathematics as actually done by real live mathematicians. more...

#### Towards a Philosophy of Real Mathematics

Cambridge University Press 2003; US$ 53.00Corfield sets out a variety of approaches to new thinking about the philosophy of mathematics. more...

#### Singular Perturbation Theory

Springer 2006; US$ 219.00The theory of singular perturbations has evolved as a response to the need to find approximate solutions (in an analytical form) to complex problems. Typically, such problems are expressed in terms of differential equations which contain at least one small parameter, and they can arise in many fields: fluid mechanics, particle physics, and combustion... more...

#### Visualization, Explanation and Reasoning Styles in Mathematics

Springer 2006; US$ 199.00This book contains groundbreaking contributions to the philosophical analysis of mathematical practice. Several philosophers of mathematics have recently called for an approach to philosophy of mathematics that pays more attention to mathematical practice. Questions concerning concept-formation, understanding, heuristics, changes in style of reasoning,... more...
