#### 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...

#### 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...

#### 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...

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

Springer 2008; US$ 189.00This book is devoted to the spectral theory of commutative C*-algebras of Toeplitz operators on the Bergman space and its applications. For each such commutative algebra there is a unitary operator which reduces Toeplitz operators from this algebra to certain multiplication operators, thus providing their spectral type representations. This yields... more...

#### Universal Algebra

Springer 2008; US$ 69.95Universal 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...
