#### Non-Associative Algebra and Its Applications

CRC Press 2006; US$ 243.00With contributions derived from presentations at an international conference, Non-Associative Algebra and Its Applications explores a wide range of topics focusing on Lie algebras, nonassociative rings and algebras, quasigroups, loops, and related systems as well as applications of nonassociative algebra to geometry, physics, and natural sciences.... more...

#### Mathematics and the Laws of Nature

Infobase Publishing 2004; US$ 40.00Examining the pioneering ideas, works, and applications that have made math the language of science, Mathematics and the Laws of Nature looks at the many ways in which so-called ''pure'' math has been used in the applied sciences. For example, the volume explores how mathematical theories contributed to the development of Kepler's laws of planetary... more...

#### Masculinities in Mathematics

McGraw-Hill Education 2006; US$ 42.00The study of mathematics, with other 'gendered' subjects such as science and engineering, usually attracts more male than female pupils. This book explores this phenomenon, addressing the important question of why more boys than girls choose to study mathematics. It illuminates what studying mathematics means for both students and teachers. more...

#### Unexpected Links Between Egyptian And Babylonian Mathematics

World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 94.00 US$ 85.54Mesopotamian mathematics is known from a great number of cuneiform texts, most of them Old Babylonian, some Late Babylonian or pre-Old-Babylonian, and has been intensively studied during the last couple of decades. In contrast to this Egyptian mathematics is known from only a small number of papyrus texts, and the few books and papers that have been... more...

#### Mathematics and the Historian's Craft

Springer New York 2006; US$ 139.17The Kenneth May Lectures have never before been published in book form Important contributions to the history of mathematics by well-known historians of science Should appeal to a wide audience due to its subject area and accessibility more...

#### Alternative Loop Rings

Elsevier Science 1996; US$ 215.00For the past ten years, alternative loop rings have intrigued mathematicians from a wide cross-section of modern algebra. As a consequence, the theory of alternative loop rings has grown tremendously. One of the main developments is the complete characterization of loops which have an alternative but not associative, loop ring. Furthermore, there is... more...

#### The Determinacy of Long Games

De Gruyter 2004; US$ 192.66In this volume the author develops and applies methods for proving, from large cardinals, the determinacy of definable games of countable length on natural numbers. The determinacy is ultimately derived from iteration strategies, connecting games on natural numbers with the specific iteration games that come up in the study of large cardinals.... more...

#### Lineare Algebra

De Gruyter 2003; US$ 32.07Die Neuauflage dieses Standardlehrbuchs, das nun vor 40 Jahren erstmals erschien, behandelt den Stoff einer zweisemestrigen Lehrveranstaltung "Lineare Algebra" vorrangig vom algorithmischen Standpunkt aus. Damit wird das Konzept der 11. Auflage beibehalten, in der die Autoren den modernen Entwicklungen in Forschung und Lehre sowie dem weit verbreiteten... more...

#### A History of Chinese Mathematics

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2007; US$ 42.81Since the end of the 19th century, a number of specialised journals, albeit with a large audience, have regularly included articles on the history of Chinese mathematics, while a number of books on the history of mathematics include a chapter on the subject. Thus, the progressive increase in our knowledge of the content of Chinese mathematics has been... more...

#### A Remarkable Collection of Babylonian Mathematical Texts

Springer New York 2007; US$ 181.99The book analyzes the mathematical tablets from the private collection of Martin Schoyen. It includes analyses of tablets which have never been studied before. This provides new insight into Babylonian understanding of sophisticated mathematical objects. The book is carefully written and organized. The tablets are classified according to mathematical... more...
