#### Numbers

Infobase Publishing 2004; US$ 40.00Numbers deals with the development of numbers from fractions to algebraic numbers to transcendental numbers to complex numbers and their uses. The book also examines in detail the number pi, the evolution of the idea of infinity, and the representation of numbers in computers. The metric and American systems of measurement as well as the applications... more...

#### Classes of Finite Groups

Springer Netherlands 2006; US$ 94.71Many group theorists all over the world have been trying in the last twenty-five years to extend and adapt the magnificent methods of the Theory of Finite Soluble Groups to the more ambitious universe of all finite groups. This is a natural progression after the classification of finite simple groups but the achievements in this area are scattered... more...

#### Schaum's Easy Outline Intermediate Algebra

McGraw-Hill Education 2003; US$ 10.00 US$ 8.20What could be better than the bestselling Schaum's Outline series? For students looking for a quick nuts-and-bolts overview, it would have to be Schaum's Easy Outline series. Every book in this series is a pared-down, simplified, and tightly focused version of its predecessor. With an emphasis on clarity and brevity, each new title features a streamlined... more...

#### Italian Mathematics Between the Two World Wars

Birkhäuser Basel 2006; US$ 108.86During the first decades of the last century Italian mathematics was considered to be the third national school due to its importance and the high level of its numerous - searchers. The decision to organize the 1908 International Congress of Mathematicians in Rome (after those in Paris and Heidelberg) confirmed this position. Qualified Italian universities... more...

#### The Algebra of Secondary Cohomology Operations

Birkhäuser Basel 2006; US$ 108.86The algebra of primary cohomology operations computed by the well-known Steenrod algebra is one of the most powerful tools of algebraic topology. This book computes the algebra of secondary cohomology operations which enriches the structure of the Steenrod algebra in a new and unexpected way. The book solves a long-standing problem on the algebra... more...

#### Extremum Problems for Eigenvalues of Elliptic Operators

Birkhäuser Basel 2006; US$ 46.80Problems linking the shape of a domain or the coefficients of an elliptic operator to the sequence of its eigenvalues are among the most fascinating of mathematical analysis. In this book, we focus on extremal problems. For instance, we look for a domain which minimizes or maximizes a given eigenvalue of the Laplace operator with various boundary... more...

#### Handbook of Geometric Topology

Elsevier Science 2001; US$ 305.00Geometric Topology is a foundational component of modern mathematics, involving the study of spacial properties and invariants of familiar objects such as manifolds and complexes. This volume, which is intended both as an introduction to the subject and as a wide ranging resouce for those already grounded in it, consists of 21 expository surveys... more...
