#### "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...

#### 5000 Years of Geometry

Springer Basel 2015; US$ 149.00The present volume provides a fascinating overview of geometrical ideas and perceptions from the earliest cultures to the mathematical and artistic concepts of the 20th century. It is the English translation of the 3rd edition of the well-received German book ?5000 Jahre Geometrie,? in which geometry is presented as a chain of developments in cultural... more...

#### Affine Flag Manifolds and Principal Bundles

Springer Basel 2011; US$ 139.00Affine flag manifolds are infinite dimensional versions of familiar objects such as Graßmann 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$ 102.00This 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$ 139.00This book explores real vector spaces X that are finite or infinite inner product spaces of arbitrary dimension greater than or equal to 2. The third edition includes new insight into a simple idea of Liebniz, new representation of hyperbolic motions and more. more...

#### College Geometry

CRC Press 2011; US$ 102.95Designed for mathematics majors and other students who intend to teach mathematics at the secondary school level, College Geometry: A Unified Development unifies the three classical geometries within an axiomatic framework. The author develops the axioms to include Euclidean, elliptic, and hyperbolic geometry, showing how geometry has real and far-reaching... more...

#### Computational Geometry

Elsevier Science 2014; US$ 72.95Computational Geometry: Curve and Surface Modeling provides information pertinent to the fundamental aspects of computational geometry. This book discusses the geometric properties of parametric polynomial curves by using the theory of affine invariants for algebraic curves. Organized into eight chapters, this book begins with an overview of the objects... more...
