  • The Four Pillars of Geometryby John Stillwell

    Springer New York 2005; US$ 38.31

    Many people think there is only one “right” way to teach geometry. For two millennia, the “right” way was Euclid’s way, and it is still good in many respects. But in the 1950s the cry “Down with triangles!” was heard in France and new geometry books appeared, packed with linear algebra but with no diagrams. Was this the new “right” way, or was the... more...

  • Naive Lie Theoryby John Stillwell

    Springer New York 2008; US$ 41.18

    This book aims to fill a gap in the literature by introducing Lie theory to junior and senior level undergraduates. In order to achieve this, the author focuses on the so-called "classical groups,'' viewed as matrix groups with real, complex, or quaternion entries. This allows them to be studied by elementary methods from calculus and linear algebra.... more...

  • Elements of Algebraby John Stillwell

    Springer New York 2013; US$ 52.67

    Algebra is abstract mathematics - let us make no bones about it - yet it is also applied mathematics in its best and purest form. It is not abstraction for its own sake, but abstraction for the sake of efficiency, power and insight. Algebra emerged from the struggle to solve concrete, physical problems in geometry, and succeeded after 2000 years of... more...

  • The Real Numbersby John Stillwell

    Springer International Publishing 2013; US$ 39.88

    This text plugs a gap in the standard curriculum by linking set theory with analysis. It features a distinctive, detailed treatment of the real numbers system, and combines an introduction to set theory with exposition of the essence of analysis. more...

  • Elements of Mathematicsby John Stillwell

    Princeton University Press 2016; Not Available

    Elements of Mathematics takes readers on a fascinating tour that begins in elementary mathematics—but, as John Stillwell shows, this subject is not as elementary or straightforward as one might think. Not all topics that are part of today's elementary mathematics were always considered as such, and great mathematical advances and discoveries had... more...

  • Reverse Mathematicsby John Stillwell

    Princeton University Press 2018; Not Available

    This book presents reverse mathematics to a general mathematical audience for the first time. Reverse mathematics is a new field that answers some old questions. In the two thousand years that mathematicians have been deriving theorems from axioms, it has often been asked: which axioms are needed to prove a given theorem? Only in the last two hundred... more...

  • The Routledge Handbook of Census Resources, Methods and Applicationsby John Stillwell

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 51.28

    The collection of reliable and comprehensive data on the magnitude, composition and distribution of a country’s population is essential in order for governments to provide services, administer effectively and guide a country’s development. The primary source of basic demographic statistics is frequently a population census, which provides hugely important... more...

  • Yearning for the Impossibleby John Stillwell

    CRC Press 2018; US$ 39.74

    Yearning for the Impossible: The Surprising Truth of Mathematics, Second Edition explores the history of mathematics from the perspective of the creative tension between common sense and the "impossible" as the author follows the discovery or invention of new concepts that have marked mathematical progress. The author puts these creations into a... more...

  • Planning Support Systems Best Practice and New Methodsby Stan Geertman; John Stillwell

    Springer Netherlands 2009; US$ 216.55

    Taking as its subject the particular set of geo-information technologies known as Planning Support Systems (PSS), this text focuses on their practical application. It sets out both best practice and new methods for creating the next generation of PSS. more...

  • Population Dynamics and Projection Methodsby John Stillwell; Martin Clarke

    Springer Netherlands 2011; US$ 125.37

    A strong understanding of demographic structure and population dynamics is essential to effective planning and decision making for the future. This volume presents contributions from a number of experts in population geography and demography, presented to honour Professor Rees’s retirement. more...
