#### Exact Analysis of Discrete Data

CRC Press 2005; US$ 139.95Researchers in fields ranging from biology and medicine to the social sciences, law, and economics regularly encounter variables that are discrete or categorical in nature. While there is no dearth of books on the analysis and interpretation of such data, these generally focus on large sample methods. When sample sizes are not large or the data are... more...

#### Numbers

Infobase Publishing 2004; US$ 40.00Numbers deals with the development of numbers from fractions to algebraic numbers to transcendental numbers to complex numbers and their uses. The book also examines in detail the number pi, the evolution of the idea of infinity, and the representation of numbers in computers. The metric and American systems of measurement as well as the applications... more...

#### Raising Achievement in Secondary Mathematics

McGraw-Hill Education 2006; US$ 42.00Shows how well-meant teaching strategies and approaches can in practice exacerbate underachievement in maths by making inappropriate demands on learners. As well as criticizing some of the teaching and grouping practices that are considered normal in many schools, this book also offers an alternative view of attainment and capability. more...

#### The Isomorphism Problem In Coxeter Groups

World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 75.00 US$ 68.25The book is the first to give a comprehensive overview of the techniques and tools currently being used in the study of combinatorial problems in Coxeter groups.

#### Italian Mathematics Between the Two World Wars

Birkhäuser Basel 2006; US$ 119.53During the first decades of the last century Italian mathematics was considered to be the third national school due to its importance and the high level of its numerous - searchers. The decision to organize the 1908 International Congress of Mathematicians in Rome (after those in Paris and Heidelberg) confirmed this position. Qualified Italian universities... more...

#### The Algebra of Secondary Cohomology Operations

Birkhäuser Basel 2006; US$ 119.53The algebra of primary cohomology operations computed by the well-known Steenrod algebra is one of the most powerful tools of algebraic topology. This book computes the algebra of secondary cohomology operations which enriches the structure of the Steenrod algebra in a new and unexpected way. The book solves a long-standing problem on the algebra... more...

#### Classes of Finite Groups

Springer Netherlands 2006; US$ 103.99Many group theorists all over the world have been trying in the last twenty-five years to extend and adapt the magnificent methods of the Theory of Finite Soluble Groups to the more ambitious universe of all finite groups. This is a natural progression after the classification of finite simple groups but the achievements in this area are scattered... more...
