  • Mathematics: All That Mattersby Mike Askew

    Hodder & Stoughton 2015; US$ 25.75

    Mathematics often gets a bad press. Describing someone as 'calculating' or 'rational' is hardly as flattering as being labelled 'artistic' or 'creative' and mathematicians in movies or novels are often portrayed as social misfits who rarely get the guy or girl. No wonder some folks say 'oh I don't care for mathematics, I was never any good at it'... more...

  • Infinite Series in a History of Analysisby Hans-Heinrich Körle

    De Gruyter Oldenbourg 2015; US$ 420.00

    Infinite series are the unifying thread that runs through the history of mathematical analysis. Ever since the 17th century, they have also been inseparably linked to infinitesimal calculus, and form its backbone. Because of the clarity of their structure, infinite series are a gratifying subject for didactics. The historical reflections, insights... more...

  • Markov Processes for Stochastic Modelingby Oliver Ibe

    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 99.95

    Markov processes are processes that have limited memory. In particular, their dependence on the past is only through the previous state. They are used to model the behavior of many systems including communications systems, transportation networks, image segmentation and analysis, biological systems and DNA sequence analysis, random atomic motion and... more...

  • Experiment and Natural Philosophy in Seventeenth-century Tuscanyby Luciano Boschiero

    Springer 2007; US$ 289.00

    The Accademia del Cimento (1657-1667) was the first institution in Europe purporting to use an experimental method in its scientific inquiries. This work counters historiographies that search for the origins of modern science within the experimental practices of Europe's first scientific institutions, such as the Cimento. more...

  • Stalking the Riemann Hypothesisby Dan Rockmore

    Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group 2007; US$ 16.00

    For 150 years the Riemann hypothesis has been the holy grail of mathematics. Now, at a moment when mathematicians are finally moving in on a proof, Dartmouth professor Dan Rockmore tells the riveting history of the hunt for a solution.In 1859 German professor Bernhard Riemann postulated a law capable of describing with an amazing degree of accuracy... more...

  • Meta Math!by Gregory Chaitin

    Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group 2008; US$ 15.95

    Gregory Chaitin, one of the world?s foremost mathematicians, leads us on a spellbinding journey, illuminating the process by which he arrived at his groundbreaking theory. Chaitin?s revolutionary discovery, the Omega number, is an exquisitely complex representation of unknowability in mathematics. His investigations shed light on what we can ultimately... more...

  • Livre IV. Commentaire historique et mathématique, édition et traduction du texte arabeby Roshdi Rashed

    De Gruyter 2009; US$ 182.00

    Book IV of the Konika consists of two parts; the first presents a theory of poles and polars, the second deals with the number of intersections and points of contact in a conic section. Previously the book was only extant as the very unreliable text of a Greek commentary by Eutocius. Roshdi Rashed here presents for the first time an edition of an Arabic... more...

  • Livres VI et VII. Commentaire historique et mathématique, édition et traduction du texte arabeby Roshdi Rashed

    De Gruyter 2009; US$ 182.00

    Book VI of the Konika is essentially devoted to the question of the identity and similarity of two conic sections, or two parts of conic sections. In Book VII Apollonius deals with the various relationships between the lengths of diameters and conjugate diameters. The results are applied to the exposition of a number of problems, as well as to some... more...

  • New Perspectives on Mathematical Practicesby Bart Van Kerkhove

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2008; US$ 193.00

    This volume focuses on the importance of historical enquiry for the appreciation of philosophical problems concerning mathematics. It contains a well-balanced mixture of contributions by internationally established experts, such as Jeremy Gray and Jens Hoyrup; upcoming scholars, such as Erich Reck and Dirk Schlimm; and young, promising researchers... more...

  • Plato's Ghostby Jeremy Gray

    Princeton University Press 2008; US$ 57.50

    Plato's Ghost is the first book to examine the development of mathematics from 1880 to 1920 as a modernist transformation similar to those in art, literature, and music. Jeremy Gray traces the growth of mathematical modernism from its roots in problem solving and theory to its interactions with physics, philosophy, theology, psychology, and ideas... more...
