#### "Daß wirdt also die Geometrische Perspektiv genandt"

Verlag und Datenbank für Geisteswissenschaften - VDG Weimar 2006; US$ 68.71Ein kaum beachtetes Feld der deutschen Kunsttheorie ist zu entdecken: das Korpus von Traktaten zur Perspektive, die im 16. Jahrhundert v.a. in Nürnberg, aber auch in anderen Humanistenzentren entstanden. Aus diesen Schriften ist abzulesen, wie unterschiedlich Künstler und Theoretiker damals die in Deutschland neuen Regeln der... more...

#### Affine Flag Manifolds and Principal Bundles

Springer 2010; US$ 139.00Affine flag manifolds are infinite dimensional versions of familiar objects such as Gramann varieties. The book features lecture notes, survey articles, and research notes - based on workshops held in Berlin, Essen, and Madrid - explaining the significance of these and related objects (such as double affine Hecke algebras and affine Springer fibers)... more...

#### Beautiful Geometry

Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 27.95If you've ever thought that mathematics and art don't mix, this stunning visual history of geometry will change your mind. As much a work of art as a book about mathematics, Beautiful Geometry presents more than sixty exquisite color plates illustrating a wide range of geometric patterns and theorems, accompanied by brief accounts of the fascinating... more...

#### Bochner - Riesz Means on Euclidean Spaces

World Scientific Publishing Company 2013; US$ 166.00This book mainly deals with the Bochner–Riesz means of multiple Fourier integral and series on Euclidean spaces. It aims to give a systematical introduction to the fundamental theories of the Bochner–Riesz means and important achievements attained in the last 50 years. For the Bochner–Riesz means of multiple Fourier integral, it... more...

#### Building a Playground

Shell Education 2010; US$ 8.99There is a contest at a school to design a new playground. The students use blocks to build their models. As they build, they use three-dimensional shapes. Some students build a train out of blocks for the younger students to play on. Can you guess which three-dimensional shape they use for the train’s wheels? Read to find out which design wins.... more...

#### Classical Geometries in Modern Contexts

Springer Basel 2012; US$ 129.00Dimension-free presentation Inclusion of proofs of newer theorems characterizing isometries and Lorentz transformations under mild hypotheses Common presentation for finite and infinite dimensional real inner product spaces X on an elementary basis, i.e., avoiding transfinite methods Highlights like the projective approach to dimension-free hyperbolic... more...
