#### A History of Chinese Mathematics

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2007; US$ 43.38Since 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...

#### Eléments d'histoire des mathématiques

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2007; US$ 35.79Ce volume rassemble les notes historiques parues dans les différents livres des éléments de mathématique de l'auteur. Elles concernent donc l'ensemble des matières abordées dans ce traité : théorie des ensembles, algèbre, topologie, fonctions d'une variable réelle, espaces vectoriels topologiques, intégration, algèbre commutative, groupes et algèbres... more...

#### A Remarkable Collection of Babylonian Mathematical Texts

Springer New York 2007; US$ 184.41The 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...

#### Universal Algebra

Springer New York 2008; US$ 61.41Universal Algebra has become the most authoritative, consistently relied on text in a field with applications in other branches of algebra and other fields such as combinatorics, geometry, and computer science. Each chapter is followed by an extensive list of exercises and problems. The "state of the art" account also includes new appendices... more...

#### Commutative Algebras of Toeplitz Operators on the Bergman Space

Birkhäuser Basel 2008; US$ 130.17This unique book is devoted to the detailed study of the recently discovered commutative C*-algebras of Toeplitz operators on the Bergman space over the unit disk. Surprisingly, the key point to understanding their structure and classifying them lies in the hyperbolic geometry of the unit disk. The book develops a number of important problems whose... more...

#### Mathematics in Western Culture

Oxford University Press 1964; US$ 33.99This book gives a remarkably fine account of the influences mathematics has exerted on the development of philosophy, the physical sciences, religion, and the arts in Western life. more...

#### The Abel Prize

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2009; US$ 83.52This book presents the first five Abel Prize in Mathematics winners, from 2003 to 2007. Leading experts in the field detail the work of each Abel Prize winner. The book also includes a brief history of the Abel Prize. more...

#### How to Read Historical Mathematics

Princeton University Press 2010; US$ 37.50 US$ 34.13Writings by early mathematicians feature language and notations that are quite different from what we're familiar with today. Sourcebooks on the history of mathematics provide some guidance, but what has been lacking is a guide tailored to the needs of readers approaching these writings for the first time. How to Read Historical Mathematics fills... more...

#### An Introduction to Abstract Algebra

Cambridge University Press 1980; US$ 44.00A summary of basic group theory is followed by accounts of group homomorphisms, rings, fields and integral domains. more...
