Multivalued Fields in Condensed Matter, Electromagnetism, and Gravitation (Softcover)
$43.45
"It is so wonderful when a concept that is generally considered to be a problem, turns out to lead to elegant solutions instead. When studying Multivalue Fields, this is probably one of the first impressions you will have." — F.M.C. Witte, Utrecht University, The Netherlands, as quoted on the back cover
Poincaré and the Three Body Problem (Softcover)
$32.29
"The idea of chaos figures prominently in mathematics today. It arose in the work of one of the greatest mathematicians of the late 19th century, Henri Poincaré, on a problem in celestial mechanics: the three body problem. This ancient problem—to describe the paths of three bodies in mutual gravitational interaction—is one which is simple to pose buy impossible to solve precisely." — From the back cover
Cambridge Studies in Magnetism 1: Spin Glasses (Softcover)
