#### János Bolyai

Springer Basel 2012; US$ 61.28Die Biographie schildert das wechselvolle Leben des ungarischen Mathematikers János Bolyai (1802?1860), der nachwies, dass die euklidische Geometrie keine Denknotwendigkeit ist. Damit legte er einen Grundstein für die Entwicklung der Physik im 20. Jahrhundert. more...

#### Hyperbolic Geometry

Cambridge University Press 1992; US$ 50.00 US$ 41.00Although it arose from purely theoretical considerations of the underlying axioms of geometry, the work of Einstein and Dirac has demonstrated that hyperbolic geometry is a fundamental aspect of modern physics more...

#### Automorphisms of Surfaces after Nielsen and Thurston

Cambridge University Press 1988; US$ 33.00 US$ 27.06This book, which grew out of Steven Bleiler's lecture notes from a course given by Andrew Casson at the University of Texas, is designed to serve as an introduction to the applications of hyperbolic geometry to low dimensional topology. In particular it provides a concise exposition of the work of Neilsen and Thurston on the automorphisms of surfaces.... more...

#### Minkowski Geometry

Cambridge University Press 1996; US$ 152.00 US$ 124.64The first comprehensive treatment of Minkowski geometry since the 1940's more...

#### Introduction to Hyperbolic Geometry

Springer New York 2013; US$ 76.20This book is an introduction to hyperbolic and differential geometry that provides material in the early chapters that can serve as a textbook for a standard upper division course on hyperbolic geometry. For that material, the students need to be familiar with calculus and linear algebra and willing to accept one advanced theorem from analysis without... more...

#### Hyperbolic Geometry from a Local Viewpoint

Cambridge University Press 2007; US$ 52.00 US$ 42.64A self-contained text on hyperbolic geometry for plane domains, ideal for graduate students and academic researchers. more...

#### Non-Euclidean Geometries

Springer US 2006; US$ 185.07"From nothing I have created a new different world," wrote János Bolyai to his father, Wolgang Bolyai, on November 3, 1823, to let him know his discovery of non-Euclidean geometry, as we call it today. The results of Bolyai and the co-discoverer, the Russian Lobachevskii, changed the course of mathematics, opened the way for modern physical theories... more...

#### Dynamics Beyond Uniform Hyperbolicity

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2006; US$ 152.41What is Dynamics about? In broad terms, the goal of Dynamics is to describe the long term evolution of systems for which an "infinitesimal" evolution rule is known. Examples and applications arise from all branches of science and technology, like physics, chemistry, economics, ecology, communications, biology, computer science, or meteorology, to mention... more...

#### Hyperbolic Triangle Centers

Springer Netherlands 2010; US$ 108.86Abraham Ungar laid the foundation for investigating hyperbolic triangle centers via hyperbolic barycentric coordinates, and in this book he initiates a study of hyperbolic triangle centers in full analogy with the rich study of Euclidian triangle centers. more...

#### Riemannian Geometry, Fibre Bundles, Kaluza-Klein Theories and All That

World Scientific Publishing Company 1988; US$ 65.00This book discusses the geometrical aspects of Kaluza-Klein theories. The ten chapters cover topics from the differential and Riemannian manifolds to the reduction of Einstein-Yang-Mills action. It would definitely prove interesting reading to physicists and mathematicians, theoretical and experimental. more...
