#### Integral and Finite Difference Inequalities and Applications

Elsevier Science 2006; US$ 190.00The monograph is written with a view to provide basic tools for researchers working in Mathematical Analysis and Applications, concentrating on differential, integral and finite difference equations. It contains many inequalities which have only recently appeared in the literature and which can be used as powerful tools and will be a valuable source... more...

#### Exemplary Practices for Secondary Math Teachers

ASCD 2007; US$ 27.95Veteran educators share proven solutions to guide a new secondary math teacher through the challenging first few months and provide the more experienced teacher with interesting alternatives to familiar methods. 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. It is self-contained, and accessible even to advanced undergraduate students of mathematics. The primary purpose of the book is to highlight approximations to the difficult isomorphism problem... more...

#### Italian Mathematics Between the Two World Wars

Birkhäuser Basel 2006; US$ 119.36During 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$ 119.36The 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$ 103.84Many 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...

#### Extremum Problems for Eigenvalues of Elliptic Operators

Birkhäuser Basel 2006; US$ 51.32Problems linking the shape of a domain or the coefficients of an elliptic operator to the sequence of its eigenvalues are among the most fascinating of mathematical analysis. In this book, we focus on extremal problems. For instance, we look for a domain which minimizes or maximizes a given eigenvalue of the Laplace operator with various boundary... more...

#### Eigenvalues, Inequalities, and Ergodic Theory

Springer London 2006; US$ 89.52A problem of broad interest – the estimation of the spectral gap for matrices or differential operators (Markov chains or diffusions) – is covered in this book. The area has a wide range of applications, and provides a tool to describe the phase transitions and the effectiveness of random algorithms. In particular, the book studies a subset of the... more...
