- Views:

#### Differential Geometry of Curves and Surfaces (Hardback)

$35.99

"Students and professors of an undergraduate course in differential geometry will appreciate the clear exposition and comprehensive exercises in this book that focuses on the geometric properties of curves and surfaces, one-and-two-dimensional objects in Euclidean spaces." — From the back cover

#### Graduate Texts in Mathematics: Graph Theory (Hardback)

$42.99

"Graph theory is a flourishing discipline containing a body of beautiful and powerful theorems of wide applicability. Its explosive growth in recent years is mainly due to its role as an essential structure underpinning modern applied mathematics—computer science, combinatorial optimization, and operations research in particular—but also to its increasing application in the more applied sciences. The versatility of graphs makes them indispensable tools in the design and analysis of communication networks, for instance." — From the back cover

#### Finite Elements: Theory, Fast Solvers, and Applications in Solid Mechanics, Third Edition (Softcover)

$34.89

"This definitive introduction to finite element methods has been updated thoroughly for this third edition, which features important new material for both research and application of the finite element model." — From the back cover

#### Conceptual Mathematics: A First Introduction to Categories, Second Edition (Softcover)

$39.89

"In the last sixty years, the use of the notion of category has led to a remarkable unification and simplification of mathematics.

*Conceptual Mathematics*introduces this tool for the learning, development, and use of mathematics, to beginning students and also to practising mathematical scientists." — From the back cover#### Encyclopedia of Mathematics and Its Applications 39: Combinatorial Matrix Theory (Hardback)

$93.89

"This is the first book length exposition of basic results of combinatorial matrix theory, that is, the use of combinatorics and graph theory in matrix theory (and vice versa) and the study of intrinsic properties of matrices viewed as arrays of numbers rather than as algebraic objects." — From the Dust Jacket

#### Frontiers in Applied Mathematics: Computational Frameworks for the Fast Fourier Transform (Softcover)

$36.29

"The fast Fourier transform (FFT) is one of the truly great computational developments of [the 20th] century. It has changed the face of science and engineering so much so that it is not an exaggeration to say that

*life as we know it would be very different without the FFT*." — From the Preface (page ix)#### Undergraduate Texts in Mathematics: Geometric Constructions (Hardback)

$36.25

"Geometric constructions have been a popular part of mathematics throughout history. The ancient Greeks made the subject an art, which was enriched by the medieval Arabs, but which required the algebra of the Renaissance for a thorough understanding. Through coordinate geometry, various geometric construction tools can be associated with various fields of real numbers. This book is about these associations." — From the back cover

#### An Introduction to Tensors and Group Theory for Physicists (Hardback)

$27.95

This book "provides both an intuitive and rigorous approach to tensors and groups and their role in theoretical physics and applied mathematics." — From the back cover

#### Undergraduate Texts in Mathematics: Elements of Algebra: Geometry, Numbers, Equations (Hardback)

$24.85

"This book is a concise, self-contained introduction to abstract algebra that stresses its unifying role in geometry and number theory." — From the back cover

#### Geometrical Methods in the Theory of Ordinary Differential Equations, Second Edition (Hardback)

$26.99

"Since 1978, when the first Russian edition of this book appeared, geometrical methods in the theory of ordinary differential equations have become very popular. A lot of computer experiments have been performed and some theorems have been proved. In this edition, this progress is (partially) represented by some additions to the first English text." — From the Preface to the Second Edition

#### Student Mathematical Library, Volume 46: Lectures on Surfaces: (Almost) Everything You Wanted to Know about Them (Softcover)

$39.59

"The assumed background is the standard calculus sequence, some linear algebra, and rudiments of ODE and real analysis. All notions are introduced and discussed, and virtually all results proved, based on this background." — From the back cover

#### A First Course in Stochastic Processes, Second Edition (Hardback)

$58.50

"The purposes, level, and style of this new edition conform to the tenets set forth in the original preface. We continue with our tack of developing simultaneously theory and applications, intertwined so that they refurbish and elucidate each other." — From the Preface (page xi)

#### A Second Course in Stochastic Processes (Hardback)

$46.75

"This

*Second Course*continues the development of the theory and applications of stochastic processes as promised in the preface of*A First Course*. We emphasize a careful treatment of basic structures in stochastic processes in symbiosis with the analysis of natural classes of stochastic processes arising from the biological, physical, and social sciences." — From the Preface (page ix)#### The Art of Probability for Scientists and Engineers (Softcover)

$63.95

"The fact that probability theory is increasingly being used to make important decisions is a further incentive for examining the theory carefully. I have witnessed very important decisions being made that were based on probability, and as a citizen I have to endure the consequences of similar decisions made in Washington, D.C., and elsewhere; hence, I feel that anything that can clarify and improve the quality of the application of probability theory will be of great benefit to our society." — Richard W. Hamming, U.S. Naval Postgraduate School and Author

#### London Mathematical Society Student Texts 29: Undergraduate Commutative Algebra (Softcover)

$19.59

"Commutative algebra is at the crossroads of algebra, number theory and algebraic geometry. This textbook, intended for advanced undergraduate or beginning graduate students with some previous experience of rings and fields..." — From the front end page

#### Introduction to The Theory of Distributions, Second Edition (Hardback)

$99.95

This book is "... a very clear, accurate and stimulating version of an important topic, with the emphasis in the right place and with the minimum of fuss." — Review of the first edition in

*Bulletin of the London Mathematical Society*#### Classroom Resource Materials: Real Infinite Series (Hardback)

$40.95

"This is an introductory treatment of infinite series of real numbers, bringing the reader from basic definitions and tests to advanced results. An up-to-date presentation is given, making infinite series accessible, interesting, and useful to a wide audience, including students, teachers, and researchers." — From the back cover

#### Approximately Calculus (Hardback)

$23.95

"Is there always a prime number between

*n*and*2n*? Where, approximately, is the millionth prime? And just what does calculus have to do with answering either of these questions? It turns out that calculus has a lot to do with both questions, as this book can show you." — From the back cover#### Understanding Abnormal Behavior, Ninth Edition (Hardback)

$5.99

**Fundraiser Item**"Our goal is to encourage students to think critically rather than merely assimilate a collection of facts and theories. As a result, we hope that students will develop an appreciation of the study of abnormal behavior." — From the Preface (page xvii)

#### A Modern Theory of Integration (Hardback)

$19.59

"The purpose of this monograph is to present an exposition of a relatively new theory of the integral (variously called the 'generalized Riemann integral', the 'gauge integral', the 'Henstock-Kurzweil integral', etc.) that corrects the defects of the classical Reimann theory and both simplifies and extends the Lebesgue theory of integration." — From the Preface (page ix)

#### Paradigms of Artificial Intelligence Programming: Case Studies in Common Lisp (Softcover)

$31.49

"This volume is an excellent text for a course on AI programming, a useful supplement for general AI courses and an indispensable reference for the professional programmer." — From the back cover

$5.99

"Logic is the glue that binds together arguments and proofs in all domains. This text aims to teach the use of this fundamental and pervasive tool and exercise it thoroughly in applications that arise in computer science and mathematics." — From the back cover
