#### Harmonic Analysis on Symmetric Spaces?Euclidean Space, the Sphere, and the Poincaré Upper Half-Plane

Springer New York 2013; US$ 79.99This book offers an introduction to harmonic analysis on the simplest symmetric spaces. It places an emphasis on motivation, concrete examples, history, and, above all, applications in mathematics, statistics, physics, and engineering. more...

#### A History of Chinese Mathematics

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2007; US$ 59.99Since 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...

#### A History of Mathematics

Oxford University Press, UK 2005; US$ 52.99A History of Mathematics: From Mesopotamia to Modernity covers the evolution of mathematics through time and across the major Eastern and Western civilizations. It begins in Babylon, then describes the trials and tribulations of the Greek mathematicians.

#### The How and Why of One Variable Calculus

Wiley 2015; US$ 74.50First course calculus texts have traditionally been either “engineering/science-oriented” with too little rigor, or have thrown students in the deep end with a rigorous analysis text. The How and Why of One Variable Calculus closes this gap in providing a rigorous treatment that takes an original and valuable approach between calculus... more...

#### How to Cut a Cake

Oxford University Press 2006; US$ 11.99Welcome back to Ian Stewart's magical world of mathematics! This is a strange world of never-ending chess games, empires on the moon, furious fireflies, and, of course, disputes over how best to cut a cake. Each quirky tale presents a fascinating mathematical puzzle -- challenging, fun, and also introducing the reader to a significant mathematical... more...

#### How to Read Historical Mathematics

Princeton University Press 2010; US$ 35.00Writings 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...

#### Infinitesimal

Oneworld Publications 2014; US$ 33.67On August 10, 1632, five leading Jesuits convened in a sombre Roman palazzo to pass judgment on a simple idea: that a continuous line is composed of distinct and limitlessly tiny parts. The doctrine would become the foundation of calculus, but on that fateful day the judges ruled that it was forbidden. With the stroke of a pen they set off a war for... more...

#### Intentional Talk

Stenhouse Publishers 2014; US$ 17.99Not all mathematics discussions are alike. It?s one thing to ask students to share how they solved a problem, to get ideas out on the table so that their thinking becomes visible; but knowing what to do with students? ideas?where to go with them?can be a daunting task. Intentional Talk provides teachers with a framework for planning and facilitating... more...
