  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Eigenvalues, Inequalities, and Ergodic Theoryby Mu-Fa Chen

    Springer 2006; US$ 119.00

    The first and only book to make this research available in the West Concise and accessible: proofs and other technical matters are kept to a minimum to help the non-specialist Each chapter is self-contained to make the book easy-to-use more...

    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...

  • Trends and Applications in Constructive Approximationby Detlef H. Mache; József Szabados; Marcel G. de Bruin

    Springer 2006; US$ 189.00

    This volume contains contributions from international experts in the fields of constructive approximation. This area has reached out to encompass the computational and approximation-theoretical aspects of various interesting fields in applied mathematics such as (multivariate) approximation methods, quasi-interpolation,and approximation by (orthogonal)... more...

  • Contemporary Cryptologyby Dario Catalano; Ronald Cramer; Ivan Damgard

    Springer 2006; US$ 59.95

    Treats selected topics of the subject of contemporary cryptology, structured in five quite independent but related themes: efficient distributed computation modulo a shared secret, multiparty computation, foundations of modern cryptography, provable security for public key schemes, and efficient and secure public-key cryptosystems. more...
