#### 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. 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...

#### The Covering Property Axiom, CPA

Cambridge University Press 2004; US$ 96.00Explores a new axiom of set theory, which simplifies proofs, provides deeper insight, and leads to new results. 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...

#### 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...

#### Lie Algebras and Algebraic Groups

Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 119.00The theory of Lie algebras and algebraic groups has been an area of active research for the last 50 years. It intervenes in many different areas of mathematics: for example invariant theory, Poisson geometry, harmonic analysis, mathematical physics. The aim of this book is to assemble in a single volume the algebraic aspects of the theory, so as to... more...

#### Solving Polynomial Equations

Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 129.00Provides an introduction to modern mathematical aspects in computing with multivariate polynomials and in solving algebraic systems.
