#### A Mathematical Tapestry

Cambridge University Press 2010; US$ 32.00 US$ 26.24Build paper polygons and discover how systematic paper folding reveals exciting patterns and relationships between seemingly unconnected branches of mathematics. more...

#### The theory of numbers

Elsevier Science 2000; US$ 275.00This book provides a comprehensive introduction to modern global variational theory on fibred spaces. It is based on differentiation and integration theory of differential forms on smooth manifolds, and on the concepts of global analysis and geometry such as jet prolongations of manifolds, mappings, and Lie groups. The book will be invaluable for... more...

#### Boundary Collocation Techniques and their Application in Engineering

WIT Press 2009; US$ 294.00Methods of mathematical modelling applied in contemporary computational mechanics can be either purely numerical or analytical-numerical procedures. Purely analytical solutions lose their popularity because of strong limitations connected with simple regions and the mostly linear equations to which they can be applied. Obviously, the fundamental monographs... more...

#### Normal Forms and Bifurcation of Planar Vector Fields

Cambridge University Press 1994; US$ 60.00 US$ 49.20This book is concerned with the bifurcation theory, the study of the changes in the structures of the solution of ordinary differential equations as parameters of the model vary. more...

#### Fundamental Concepts of Mathematics

Hong Kong University Press, HKU 1988; US$ 21.00Basic concepts of number theory are discussed. Topics include set theory, mathematical induction, com-binatorics, arithmetic, real numbers, limit and convergence, and complex numbers. more...

#### Vectors, Matrices and Geometry

Hong Kong University Press, HKU 1994; US$ 26.00This book introduces the important concepts of finite-dimensional vector spaces through the careful study of Euclidean geometry. In turn, methods of linear algebra are then used in the study of coordinate transformations through which a complete classification of conic sections and quadric surfaces is obtained. more...

#### Mathematical Reasoning

Taylor and Francis 2011; US$ 47.95The development of mathematical competence -- both by humans as a species over millennia and by individuals over their lifetimes -- is a fascinating aspect of human cognition. This book explores when and why the rudiments of mathematical capability first appeared among human beings, what its fundamental concepts are, and how and why it has grown... more...

#### Lectures on Applications-Oriented Mathematics

Wiley 2011; US$ 201.00 US$ 174.20Meets the need for a program of short courses involving the essentials of a number of mathematical topics taken by physics and engineering students. Basically applications-oriented, the courses do include selected topics of abstract mathematics. While several courses can be used as practical appendices to conventional mathematics, others serve as introductions,... more...

#### Disrupted Networks

World Scientific Publishing Company 2010; US$ 74.00This book provides a lens through which modern society is shown to depend on complex networks for its stability. One way to achieve this understanding is through the development of a new kind of science, one that is not explicitly dependent on the traditional disciplines of biology, economics, physics, sociology and so on; a science of networks. This... more...

#### "In Mathe war ich immer schlecht..."

Vieweg+Teubner Verlag 2009; US$ 19.99Das Buch öffnet ein Fenster, durch das man einen Einblick in die Mathematik erhält. Der Autor bringt das Kunststück fertig, den scheinbar undurchdringlichen Schleier von der Mathematik wegzuziehen und ihre Geheimnisse zu entschlüsseln. Er zeichnet ein buntes Bild von Mathematik und Mathematikern, das Nichtmathematiker genießen, aus dem aber auch Mathematiker... more...
