    Orion 2011; Not Available

    Drawings and writings by Archimedes, previously thought to have been destroyed, have been uncovered beneath the pages of a 13th-century monk's prayer book.

Archimedes discovered... more...

    Oxford University Press, USA 1993; US$ 18.99

    Why is the number seven lucky--even holy--in almost every culture? Why do we speak of the four corners of the earth? Why do cats have nine lives (except in Iran, where they have seven)? From literature to folklore to private superstitions, numbers play a conspicuous role in our daily lives. But in this fascinating book, Annemarie Schimmel shows that... more...

  • Chases and Escapesby Paul J. Nahin

    Princeton University Press 2012; US$ 18.95

    We all played tag when we were kids. What most of us don't realize is that this simple chase game is in fact an application of pursuit theory, and that the same principles of games like tag, dodgeball, and hide-and-seek are also at play in military strategy, high-seas chases by the Coast Guard, and even romantic pursuits. In Chases and Escapes ,... more...

    Argo-Navis 2013; US$ 9.99

    From the Preface to the Second Edition: ?This book will not take the casual reader to the cutting edge of research. Nor is it meant to.

  • Visions of Infinityby Ian Stewart

    Basic Books 2013; US$ 26.99

    It is one of the wonders of mathematics that, for every problem mathematicians solve, another awaits to perplex and galvanize them.
