  • The Captains of Energyby Vincent C. Prantil; Timothy Decker

    Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2015; US$ 65.00

    In teaching an introduction to transport or systems dynamics modeling at the undergraduate level, it is possible to lose pedagogical traction in a sea of abstract mathematics. What the mathematical modeling of time-dependent system behavior offers is a venue in which students can be taught that physical analogies exist between what they likely perceive... more...

  • Monomial Idealsby Jürgen Herzog; Takayuki Hibi

    Springer London 2010; US$ 74.95

    -Theory is complemented by a number of examples and exercises throughout, bringing the reader to a deeper understanding of concepts explored within the text - Provides a quick and useful introduction to research spanning the fields of combinatorial and computational commutative algebra, with a special focus on monomial ideals - Only a basic knowledge... more...

  • The Didactical Challenge of Symbolic Calculatorsby Dominique Guin; Kenneth Ruthven; Luc Trouche

    Springer 2006; US$ 269.00

    While computational technologies are transforming the professional practice of mathematics, as yet they have had little impact on school mathematics. This pioneering text develops a theorized analysis of why this is and what can be done to address it. It examines the particular case of symbolic calculators (equipped with computer algebra systems) in... more...

  • Fleeting Footstepsby Lam Lay Yong; Ang Tian Se

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 123.00

    The Hindu?Arabic numeral system (1, 2, 3,...) is one of mankind's greatest achievements and one of its most commonly used inventions. How did it originate? Those who have written about the numeral system have hypothesized that it originated in India; however, there is little evidence to support this claim. This book provides considerable evidence... more...

  • Multiplicative Invariant Theoryby Martin Lorenz

    Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 179.00

    Multiplicative invariant theory is as a research area in its own right within the wider spectrum of invariant theory. This work text offers an account of the basic results. It is intended for graduate and postgraduate students as well as researchers in integral representation theory, commutative algebra and invariant theory. more...

  • Masculinities in Mathematicsby Heather Mendick

    McGraw-Hill Education 2006; US$ 42.00

    The 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...

  • Mathematics and the Laws of Natureby John Tabak

    Infobase Publishing 2004; US$ 40.00

    Examining 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...

  • Mathematics and the Historian's Craftby Michael Kinyon; Glen van Brummelen

    Springer-Verlag New York Inc 2006; US$ 139.00

    This book brings together for the first time the Kenneth May Lectures that were given at the annual meetings of the Canadian Society for History and Philosophy of Mathematics. All contributions are of high scholarly value, yet accessible to an audience with a wide range of interests. more...

  • Dualisabilityby Jane Pitkethly; Brian Davey

    Springer-Verlag New York Inc 2006; US$ 169.00

    Natural duality theory is one of the major growth areas within general algebra. This text provides a short path to the forefront of research in duality theory. It presents a coherent approach to new results in the area, as well as exposing open problems. Unary algebras play a special role throughout the text. Individual unary algebras are relatively... more...

  • Studies in Lie Theoryby Joseph Bernstein; Vladimir Hinich; Anna Melnikov

    Springer 2006; US$ 199.00

    Dedicated to Anthony Joseph, this volume contains surveys and invited articles by leading specialists in representation theory. The focus here is on semisimple Lie algebras and quantum groups, where the impact of Joseph's work has been seminal and has changed the face of the subject. Two introductory biographical overviews of Joseph's contributions... more...
