  • 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...

  • Non-Associative Algebra and Its Applicationsby Lev Sabinin; Larissa Sbitneva; Ivan Shestakov

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Unexpected Links Between Egyptian And Babylonian Mathematicsby Jöran Friberg

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 153.00

    Mesopotamian 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...

  • Combinatorial Commutative Algebraby Ezra Miller; Bernd Sturmfels

    Springer-Verlag New York Inc 2006; US$ 59.95

    Offers an introduction to combinatorial commutative algebra, focusing on combinatorial techniques for multigraded polynomial rings, semigroup algebras, and determined rings. The chapters in this work cover topics ranging from homological invariants of monomial ideals and their polyhedral resolutions, to tools for studying algebraic varieties. more...
