#### Alternative Loop Rings

Elsevier Science 1996; US$ 215.00For the past ten years, alternative loop rings have intrigued mathematicians from a wide cross-section of modern algebra. As a consequence, the theory of alternative loop rings has grown tremendously. One of the main developments is the complete characterization of loops which have an alternative but not associative, loop ring. Furthermore, there is... more...

#### Contemporary Cryptology

Springer 2006; US$ 59.95Treats 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...

#### Set Theory

Springer 2006; US$ 169.00Contains survey papers on some of the mainstream areas of set theory and research. This book covers topics such as Omega-logic, applications of set theory to lattice theory and Boolean algebras, real-valued measurable cardinals, complexity of sets and relations in continuum theory, weak subsystems of axiomatic set theory, and more. more...

#### Noetherian Semigroup Algebras

Springer 2007; US$ 119.00Within the last decade, semigroup theoretical methods have occurred naturally in many aspects of ring theory, algebraic combinatorics, representation theory and their applications. In particular, motivated by noncommutative geometry and the theory of quantum groups, there is a growing interest in the class of semigroup algebras and their deformations.... more...

#### The Shaping of Arithmetic after C.F. Gauss's Disquisitiones Arithmeticae

Springer 2007; US$ 89.95Revisits successive periods in the reception of the Disquisitiones as it studies which parts were taken up and when, which themes were further explored. This work also focuses on how specific mathematicians reacted to Gauss' book: Dirichlet and Hermite, Kummer and Genocchi, Dedekind and Zolotarev, Dickson and Emmy Noether, among others. more...

#### Number Story

Springer 2008; US$ 25.00Provides an introduction to the development of numbers and their applications. This book includes material with more challenging ideas about infinity and complex numbers and offers examples ranging from recreational puzzles to very real world scenarios. It is for those who are curious about the mathematics behind real-life questions. more...

#### A History of Chinese Mathematics

Springer 2006; US$ 59.99Made of two mutually explanatory parts, this book provides information on the general, historical and cultural background, and the development of each subdiscipline that together comprise Chinese mathematics. It is organised topically rather than chronologically, and tells how to interpret the contextual setting, both mathematical and sinological. more...

#### Determinantal Ideals

Springer 2007; US$ 99.00Determinantal ideals are a central topic in both commutative algebra and algebraic geometry. This book addresses three problems: CI-liaison class and G-liaison class of standard determinantal ideals; the multiplicity conjecture for standard determinantal ideals; and, unobstructedness and dimension of families of standard determinantal ideals. more...

#### A Remarkable Collection of Babylonian Mathematical Texts

Springer 2007; US$ 229.00The 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...

#### Dirac Operators in Representation Theory

Springer 2007; US$ 139.00Dirac operators are used in physics, differential geometry, and group-theoretic settings. Using Dirac operators as a unifying theme, this work demonstrates how some of the important results in representation theory fit together when viewed from this perspective. It presents the important ideas on Dirac operators and Dirac cohomology. more...
