#### The Mathematical Mechanic

Princeton University Press 2009; US$ 15.95 US$ 14.51Everybody knows that mathematics is indispensable to physics--imagine where we'd be today if Einstein and Newton didn't have the math to back up their ideas. But how many people realize that physics can be used to produce many astonishing and strikingly elegant solutions in mathematics? Mark Levi shows how in this delightful book, treating readers... more...

#### Outer Billiards on Kites (AM-171)

Princeton University Press 2009; US$ 72.50 US$ 65.98Outer billiards is a basic dynamical system defined relative to a convex shape in the plane. B. H. Neumann introduced this system in the 1950s, and J. Moser popularized it as a toy model for celestial mechanics. All along, the so-called Moser-Neumann question has been one of the central problems in the field. This question asks whether or not one... more...

#### Algebraic Methods in Unstable Homotopy Theory

Cambridge University Press 2010; US$ 124.00The most modern and thorough treatment of unstable homotopy theory available. more...

#### CR Submanifolds of Complex Projective Space

Springer New York 2009; US$ 116.74This book covers the necessary topics for learning the basic properties of complex manifolds, offering an easy, friendly, and accessible introduction into the subject while aptly guiding the reader to topics of current research and to more advanced publications. The first half of the book provides an introduction to complex differential geometry and... more...

#### Simplicial Homotopy Theory

Birkhäuser Basel 2009; US$ 61.87This book introduces basic tools of modern homotopy theory. It covers basic topics such as simplicial groups, Postnikov towers, and bisimplicial sets, as well as such advanced topics as homotopy limits and colimits, cosimplicial spaces, and homotopy coherence. more...

#### Nonlinear Computational Geometry

Springer New York 2009; US$ 186.80An original motivation for algebraic geometry was to understand curves and surfaces in three dimensions. Recent theoretical and technological advances in areas such as robotics, computer vision, computer-aided geometric design and molecular biology, together with the increased availability of computational resources, have brought these original questions... more...

#### Gems of Geometry

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2009; US$ 40.85Based on a series of lectures for adult students, this lively and entertaining book proves that, far from being a dusty, dull subject, geometry is in fact full of beauty and fascination. The author's infectious enthusiasm is put to use in explaining many of the key concepts in the field, starting with the Golden Number and taking the reader on... more...

#### Programming Visual Basic 2008

O'Reilly Media 2008; US$ 39.99Ever since Visual Basic was merged into .NET, it's become the core language for creating business applications with Windows. The latest version, VB 2008, is even more useful -- and provides even more incentive for migrating from VB 6. All it lacks is a good book on how to harness its power. Programming Visual Basic 2008 fills the void. Written... more...
