#### The Legacy of Mario Pieri in Geometry and Arithmetic

Springer 2007; US$ 169.00The Italian mathematician Mario Pieri (1860-1913) played an integral part in the research groups of Corrado Segre and Giuseppe Peano, and thus had a significant, yet somewhat underappreciated impact on several branches of mathematics, particularly on the development of algebraic geometry and the foundations of mathematics in the years around the turn... more...

#### Random Walk: A Modern Introduction

Cambridge University Press 2010; US$ 77.00An advanced treatment of random walks written for students and researchers in probability and related fields. more...

#### Robert Recorde

Springer 2011; US$ 129.00The 16th-Century intellectual Robert Recorde is chiefly remembered for introducing the equals sign into algebra, yet the greater significance and broader scope of his work is often overlooked. This book presents an authoritative and in-depth analysis of the man, his achievements and his historical importance. This scholarly yet accessible work examines... more...

#### The Crossing of Heaven

Springer 2012; US$ 59.95Among the group of physics honors students huddled in 1957 on a Colorado mountain watching Sputnik bisect the heavens, one young scientist was destined, three short years later, to become a key player in America's own top-secret spy satellite program. One of our era's most prolific mathematicians, Karl Gustafson was given just two weeks to... more...

#### Iris Runge

Springer 2012; US$ 149.00This book concerns the origins of mathematical problem solving at the internationally active Osram and Telefunken Corporations during the golden years of broadcasting and electron tube research. The woman scientist Iris Runge, who received an interdisciplinary education at the University of Gottingen, was long employed as the sole mathematical authority... more...

#### Generalized Structured Component Analysis

Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 79.95Developed by the authors, generalized structured component analysis is an alternative to two longstanding approaches to structural equation modeling: covariance structure analysis and partial least squares path modeling. Generalized structured component analysis allows researchers to evaluate the adequacy of a model as a whole, compare a model to... more...

#### Spatial Statistics and Spatio-Temporal Data

Wiley 2011; US$ 107.95In the spatial or spatio-temporal context, specifying the correct covariance function is fundamental to obtain efficient predictions, and to understand the underlying physical process of interest. This book focuses on covariance and variogram functions, their role in prediction, and appropriate choice of these functions in applications. Both recent... more...
