#### Proper Group Actions and the Baum-Connes Conjecture

Birkhäuser Basel 2012; US$ 30.76A concise introduction to the techniques used to prove the Baum-Connes conjecture. The Baum-Connes conjecture predicts that the K-homology of the reduced C^*-algebra of a group can be computed as the equivariant K-homology of the classifying space for proper actions. The approach is expository, but it contains proofs of many basic results on topological... more...

#### Math for Life

Big Kid Science 2013; US$ 9.99How can we solve the national debt crisis? Should you or your child take on a student loan? Is it safe to talk on a cell phone while driving? Are there viable energy alternatives to fossil fuels? What could you do with a billion dollars? Could simple policy changes reduce political polarization? These questions may all seem very different, but they... more...

#### Mobile Learning and Mathematics

Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 50.00Mobile Learning and Mathematics provides an overview of current research on how mobile devices are supporting mathematics educators in classrooms across the globe. Through nine case studies, chapter authors investigate the use of mobile technologies over a range of grade levels and mathematical topics, while connecting chapters provide a strong... more...

#### Introduction to Singularities

Springer Japan 2014; US$ 49.00This book is an introduction to singularities for graduate students and researchers. It is said that algebraic geometry originated in the seventeenth century with the famous work Discours de la méthode pour bien conduire sa raison, et chercher la vérité dans les sciences by Descartes. In that book he introduced coordinates to the study of geometry.... more...

#### Fleeting Footsteps

World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 38.00 US$ 34.58The Hindu–Arabic numeral system (1, 2, 3,...) is one of mankind's greatest achievements and one of its most commonly used inventions. How did it originate? Those who have written about the numeral system have hypothesized that it originated in India; however, there is little evidence to support this claim. This book provides considerable evidence... more...

#### Non-Associative Algebra and Its Applications

CRC Press 2006; US$ 243.00With contributions derived from presentations at an international conference, Non-Associative Algebra and Its Applications explores a wide range of topics focusing on Lie algebras, nonassociative rings and algebras, quasigroups, loops, and related systems as well as applications of nonassociative algebra to geometry, physics, and natural sciences.... more...

#### Mathematics and the Laws of Nature

Infobase Publishing 2004; US$ 40.00Examining the pioneering ideas, works, and applications that have made math the language of science, Mathematics and the Laws of Nature looks at the many ways in which so-called ''pure'' math has been used in the applied sciences. For example, the volume explores how mathematical theories contributed to the development of Kepler's laws of planetary... more...

#### Masculinities in Mathematics

McGraw-Hill Education 2006; US$ 42.00The study of mathematics, with other 'gendered' subjects such as science and engineering, usually attracts more male than female pupils. This book explores this phenomenon, addressing the important question of why more boys than girls choose to study mathematics. It illuminates what studying mathematics means for both students and teachers. more...

#### Unexpected Links Between Egyptian And Babylonian Mathematics

World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 47.00 US$ 42.77Mesopotamian mathematics is known from a great number of cuneiform texts, most of them Old Babylonian, some Late Babylonian or pre-Old-Babylonian, and has been intensively studied during the last couple of decades. In contrast to this Egyptian mathematics is known from only a small number of papyrus texts, and the few books and papers that have been... more...
