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...

#### Non-Associative Algebra and Its Applications

Taylor and Francis 2010; US$ 231.00With 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...

#### Multiplicative Invariant Theory

Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 179.00Multiplicative invariant theory is as a research area in its own right within the wider spectrum of invariant theory.

#### Mathematics and the Divine

Elsevier Science 2004; US$ 325.00Mathematics and the Divine seem to correspond to diametrically opposed tendencies of the human mind. Does the mathematician not seek what is precisely defined, and do the objects intended by the mystic and the theologian not lie beyond definition? Is mathematics not Man's search for a measure, and isn?t the Divine that which is immeasurable ? The present... 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$ 153.00Mesopotamian 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...
