  • Logic with a Probability Semanticsby Theodore Hailperin

    Lehigh University Press 2010; US$ 59.99

    The book extends the development of probability logic_a logic using probability, not verity (true, false) as the basic semantic notion. The basic connectives 'not,' 'and,' and 'or' are described in depth to include quantified formulas. Also discussed is the notion of the suppositional, and resolution of the paradox of confirmation. more...

  • David Lewis und seine mereologische Interpretation der Zermelo-Fraenkelschen Mengenlehreby Philipp Werner

    De Gruyter 2015; US$ 112.00

    In Parts of Classes, David Lewis outlined a reduction of ZFC to a second order mereology. His conclusion takes on the following form in this reconstruction: ZFC is susceptible to parameterized interpretation in M (classical second order mereology) plus, ?there is a strongly unreachable partition.? The proof makes use of the fact that ordered pairs... more...

  • Mathematics without Apologiesby Michael Harris

    Princeton University Press 2015; US$ 29.95

    What do pure mathematicians do, and why do they do it? Looking beyond the conventional answers?for the sake of truth, beauty, and practical applications?this book offers an eclectic panorama of the lives and values and hopes and fears of mathematicians in the twenty-first century, assembling material from a startlingly diverse assortment of scholarly,... more...

  • Mathematicians under the Nazisby Sanford L. Segal

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 39.95

    Contrary to popular belief--and despite the expulsion, emigration, or death of many German mathematicians--substantial mathematics was produced in Germany during 1933-1945. In this landmark social history of the mathematics community in Nazi Germany, Sanford Segal examines how the Nazi years affected the personal and academic lives of those German... more...

  • Trigonometric Delightsby Eli Maor

    Princeton University Press 2013; US$ 18.95

    Trigonometry has always been an underappreciated branch of mathematics. It has a reputation as a dry and difficult subject, a glorified form of geometry complicated by tedious computation. In this book, Eli Maor draws on his remarkable talents as a guide to the world of numbers to dispel that view. Rejecting the usual arid descriptions of sine, cosine,... 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...

  • John Napierby Julian Havil

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 35.00

    John Napier (1550?1617) is celebrated today as the man who invented logarithms?an enormous intellectual achievement that would soon lead to the development of their mechanical equivalent in the slide rule: the two would serve humanity as the principal means of calculation until the mid-1970s. Yet, despite Napier?s pioneering efforts, his life and... more...

  • Force and Geometry in Newton's "Principia"by François De Gandt; Curtis Wilson

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 49.95

    In this book François De Gandt introduces us to the reading of Newton's Principia in its own terms. The path of access that De Gandt proposes leads through the study of the geometrization of force. The result is a highly original meditation on the sources and meaning of Newton's magnum opus . In Chapter I De Gandt presents a translation of and... more...

  • Nature's Numbersby Ian Stewart

    Orion 2014; Not Available

    Why do many flowers have five or eight petals, but very few six or seven? Why do snowflakes have sixfold symmetry? Why do tigers have stripes but leopards have spots? Mathematics is to nature as Sherlock Holmes is to evidence. Mathematics can look at a single snowflake and deduce the atomic geometry of its crystals; it can start with a violin... more...
