#### Abel?s Theorem in Problems and Solutions

Springer Netherlands 2007; US$ 97.97Do formulas exist for the solution to algebraical equations in one variable of any degree like the formulas for quadratic equations? The main aim of this book is to give new geometrical proof of Abel's theorem, as proposed by Professor V.I. Arnold. The theorem states that for general algebraical equations of a degree higher than 4, there are no formulas... more...

#### Beliefs: A Hidden Variable in Mathematics Education?

Springer Netherlands 2006; US$ 65.31This book focuses on aspects of mathematical beliefs, from a variety of different perspectives. Current knowledge of the field is synthesized and existing boundaries are extended. The volume is intended for researchers in the field, as well as for mathematics educators teaching the next generation of students. more...

#### Didactics of Mathematics as a Scientific Discipline

Springer Netherlands 2006; US$ 237.89Didactics 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...

#### Elements of Applied Bifurcation Theory

Springer New York 2008; US$ 76.20The favorable reaction to the ?rst edition of this book con?rmed that the publication of such an application-oriented text on bifurcation theory of dynamical systems was well timed. The selected topics indeed cover - jor practical issues of applying the bifurcation theory to ?nite-dimensional problems. This new edition preserves the structure of the... more...
