#### Didactics of Mathematics as a Scientific Discipline

Springer Netherlands 2006; US$ 234.92Didactics of Mathematics as a Scientific Discipline describes the state of the art in a new branch of science. Starting from a general perspective on the didactics of mathematics, the 30 original contributions to the book, drawn from 10 different countries, go on to identify certain subdisciplines and suggest an overall structure or `topology'... more...

#### A First Graduate Course in Abstract Algebra

Taylor and Francis 2004; US$ 115.95Since abstract algebra is so important to the study of advanced mathematics, it is critical that students have a firm grasp of its principles and underlying theories before moving on to further study. To accomplish this, they require a concise, accessible, user-friendly textbook that is both challenging and stimulating. A First Graduate Course in Abstract... more...

#### Elementary Number Theory, Group Theory and Ramanujan Graphs

#### Scale-isometric Polytopal Graphs In Hypercubes And Cubic Lattices

World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 73.00 US$ 66.43This monograph identifies polytopes that are "combinatorially l1-embeddable", within interesting lists of polytopal graphs, i.e. such that corresponding polytopes are either prominent mathematically (regular partitions, root lattices, uniform polytopes and so on), or applicable in chemistry (fullerenes, polycycles, etc.). The embeddability, if any,... more...

#### Combinatorial Methods in Discrete Distributions

Wiley 2005; US$ 169.00 US$ 146.47A unique approach illustrating discrete distribution theory through combinatorial methods This book provides a unique approach by presenting combinatorial methods in tandem with discrete distribution theory. This method, particular to discreteness, allows readers to gain a deeper understanding of theory by using applications to solve problems. The... more...
