  • “Mathesis of the Mind”by David W. Wood

    Editions Rodopi 2012; US$ 75.40

    This is the first major study in any language on J.G. Fichte’s philosophy of mathematics and theory of geometry.

    This international bestseller, which foreshadowed a market crash, explains why it could happen again if we don't act now. Fractal geometry is the mathematics of roughness: how to reduce the outline of a jagged leaf or static in a computer connection to a few simple mathematical properties. With his fractal tools, Mandelbrot has got to the bottom of... more...

  • 5000 Jahre Geometrieby Christoph J. Scriba; Peter Schreiber

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2006; US$ 39.99

    Schon lange bevor die Schrift entwickelt wurde, hat der Mensch geometrische Strukturen wahrgenommen und systematisch verwendet. So entstehen beim Weben und Flechten einfache zweidimensionale Muster und ohne dreidimensionale Körper wie Quader, Würfel oder Pyramide ist keine Bautätigkeit denkbar. Das vorliegende Buch gibt einen faszinierenden Überblick... more...

  • A.D. Alexandrovby S.S. Kutateladze

    CRC Press 2005; US$ 194.95

    A.D. Alexandrov is considered by many to be the father of intrinsic geometry, second only to Gauss in surface theory. That appraisal stems primarily from this masterpiece--now available in its entirely for the first time since its 1948 publication in Russian. Alexandrov's treatise  begins with an outline of the basic concepts, definitions, and results... more...
