#### The Determinate World

De Gruyter 2009; US$ 133.00This study examines the place of Hermann von Helmholtz?s seminal papers on geometry in his philosophy of science. The arguments of these papers are traced back to his prior work on the theory of magnitudes, as well as to Helmholtz?s early, Kantian position. The author claims that Helmholtz should be understood not as opposing Kant, but as... more...

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

Princeton University Press 2009; US$ 69.00 US$ 55.20Outer 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...
