## The Theory of Partitions (Softcover)"This book develops the theory of partitions. Simply put, the partitions of a number are the ways of writing that number as sums of positive numbers. For example, the five partitions of 4 are 4, 3+1, 2+2, 2+1+1, and 1+1+1+1." — From the back cover ## $43.79 |

## Description

Continued from the back cover: “Surprisingly, such a simple matter requires some deep mathematics for its study. This book considers the many theoretical aspects of this subject, which have in turn recently found applications to statistical mechanics, computer science and other branches of mathematics.

“With minimal prerequisites, this book is suitable for students as well as researchers in combinatorics, analysis, and number theory.”

#### Introduction to Analysis of the Infinite, Book I (Hardback)

$89.95

"...I have divided this work into two books; in the first of these I have confined myself to those matters concerning pure analysis. In the second book I have explained those things which must be known from geometry, since analysis is ordinarily developed in such a way that its application to geometry is shown. ... [I]n the first book, since all of analysis is concerned with variable quantities and functions of such variables, I have given full treatment to functions. I have also treated the transformation of functions and functions as the sum of infinite series. In addition I have developed functions in infinite series..." — From the Preface by the Author, Leonhard Euler
