    "While many popular books have been written on the advances in our understanding of infinity, sparked by the set theory of Georg Cantor in the 1870s and incompleteness theorems of Kurt Gödel in the 1930s, such books generally dwell on a single aspect of either set theory or logic. The aim of this book is to explain the whole, in which set theory interacts with logic, and both begin to affect mainstream mathematics (the latter being quite a recent development, not yet given much space in popular accounts)." — From the dust jacket's inside front flap

    $29.65

    "[The late] Michio Kuga's lectures on Group Theory and Differential Equations are a realization of two dreams—one to see Galois groups used to attack the problems of differential equations—the other to do so in such a manner as to take students from a very basic level to an understanding of the heart of this fascinating mathematical problem." — From the back cover
