#### Texts and Monographs in Computer Science: The Science of Programming (Softcover)

$9.99

"One cannot learn to write large programs effectively until one has learned to write small ones effectively." — David Gries, Author, in the Preface

#### Cambridge Texts in Applied Mathematics: Scaling (Softcover)

$40.59

This text is based on courses taught to undergraduate and graduate students, but can also be used for self-study by biologists, chemists, physicists, astronomers, engineers and geoscientists.

#### Interdisciplinary Applied Mathematics: Systems and Control: Nonholonomic Mechanics and Control (Hardback)

$47.29

"This book is intended for graduate and advanced undergraduate students in mathematics, physics and engineering who wish to learn this subject and for researchers in the area who want to enhance their techniques." — From the back cover

#### Universitext: The Calculus of Variations (Hardback)

$49.95

"This book is an introductory account of the calculus of variations suitable for advanced undergraduate and graduate students of mathematics, physics, or engineering. The mathematical background assumed of the reader is a course in multivariable calculus, and some familiarity with the elements of real analysis and ordinary differential equations." — From the back cover

#### Graduate Texts in Mathematics: Introduction to Cyclotomic Fields, Second Edition (Hardback)

$57.95

"

*Introduction to Cyclotomic Fields*is a carefully written exposition of a central area of number theory that can be used as a second course in algebraic number theory." — From the back cover#### Texts in Applied Mathematics 16: Concurrent Scientific Computing (Hardback)

$19.95

"This book is not only a foundation for the study of concurrent algorithms of scientific computing; it is also a bridge between disciplines"—mathematical modeling, numerical analysis, and computer science.— Paraphrased from the back cover

#### Cambridge Studies in Mathematics 14: An Introduction to the Theory of the Riemann Zeta-Function (Softcover)

$19.79

"This is a modern introduction to the analytic techniques used in the investigation of zeta-functions through the example of the Riemann zeta-function." — From the back cover

#### Student Mathematical Library, Volume 23: Lectures on Generating Functions (Softcover)

$26.79

"This book is based on the course given by the author at the College of Mathematics of the Independent University of Moscow." — From the back cover

#### Studies in Advanced Mathematics: Harmonic Analysis and Applications (Hardback)

$79.95

"Harmonic analysis plays an essential role in understanding a host of engineering, mathematical, and scientific ideas. In

*Harmonic Analysis and Applications*, the analysis and synthesis of functions in terms of harmonics is presented in such a way as to demonstrate the vitality, power, elegance, usefulness, and the intricacy and simplicity of the subject." — From the back cover#### Undergraduate Texts in Mathematics: Groups and Symmetry (Hardback)

$37.29

"As prerequisites I assume a first course in linear algebra (including matrix multiplication and the representation of linear maps between Euclidean spaces by matrices, though not the abstract theory of vector spaces) plus familiarity with the basic properties of the real and complex numbers. It would be a pity to teach group theory without matrix groups available as a rich source of examples, especially since matrices are so heavily used in application." — Mark Anthony Armstrong, Author, in the Preface

#### Iterative Methods for Sparse Linear Systems, Second Edition (Softcover)

$59.75

"This book can be used to teach graduate-level courses on iterative methods for linear systems. Engineers and mathematicians will find its contents easily accessible, and practitioners and educators will value it as a helpful resource. The preface includes syllabi that can be used for either a semester- or quarter-length course in both mathematics and computer science." — From the back cover

#### Solid-State Sciences: Group Theory and Its Applications in Physics, Study Edition (Softcover)

$58.50

Answers and hints to newly-added exercises in this "Study Edition" make this an appealing text to use by students and professionals alike when being introduced to the field of group theory as it applies to physics.

#### Analytic Combinatorics (Hardback)

$36.95

"The book can be used as a reference for researchers, as a textbook for an advanced undergraduate or a graduate course on the subject, or for self-study." — From the back cover

#### Tensor Analysis on Manifolds (Softcover)

$3.65

"Despite its success as a mathematical tool in the general theory of relativity and its adaptability to a wide range of mathematical and physical problems, tensor analysis has always had a rather restricted level of use, with an emphasis on notation and the manipulation of indices. This book is an attempt to broaden this point of view at the stage where the student first encounters the subject." — From the back cover

#### Springer Undergraduate Mathematics Series: Topics in Group Theory (Softcover)

$27.99

"The theory of groups is simultaneously a branch of abstract algebra and the study of symmetry. Designed to support a reader engaged in a first serious group theory course, or a mathematically mature reader approaching the subject for the first time, this book reviews the essentials." — From the back cover

#### Financial Accounting 8e (Hardcover)

$5.95

**Fundraiser Item**"Financial Accounting helps students 'nail' the accounting cycle up front in order to increase success and retention later on." — From the Preface

#### Challenging Mathematical Problems with Elementary Solutions (2-Volume Softcover Set)

$19.59

"Designed for advanced high school students, undergraduates, graduate students, mathematics teachers and any lover of mathematical challenges, this two-volume set offers a broad spectrum of challenging problems—ranging from relatively simple to extremely difficult." — From the back cover

#### Topological Methods in Euclidean Spaces (Softcover)

$4.49

"A new section of solutions to selected problems has been appended to this affordable edition, sure to be welcomed by advanced undergraduate and graduate students of mathematics." — From the back cover

#### Introduction to Information Theory and Data Compression (Hardback)

"This textbook is aimed at graduate students and upper level undergraduates in mathematics, engineering, and computer science." — From the Preface

#### Springer Undergraduate Mathematics Series: Symmetries (Softcover)

$27.99

"The main object of study for this book is geometry, with group theory providing an appropriate language in which to express geometrical ideas." — From the back cover

#### Springer Undergraduate Mathematics Series: Further Linear Algebra (Softcover)

$27.99

"

*Further Linear Algebra*is a natural sequel to the authors' highly acclaimed SUMS volume*Basic Linear Algebra*. The more advanced topics covered here take the reader to the very heart of the subject, and include inner product spaces, direct sums of subspaces, and primary decomposition theorem and various canonical forms for matrices. Furthermore, the authors provide a brief introduction to the use of MAPLE in linear algebra calculations, and biographical profiles of eminent mathematicians associated with the subject." — From the back cover#### Group Theory and Its Application to Physical Problems (Softcover)

$6.39

"This excellent text, long considered one of the best-written, most skillful expositions of group theory and its physical applications, is directed primarily to advanced undergraduate and graduate students in physics, especially quantum physics." — From the back cover

#### Introduction to Logic and the Methodology of Deductive Sciences (Softcover)

$3.75

This book is a textbook for elementary college courses in logic and the methodology of deductive science. It is from a revised second edition of a classical work that was first published in Polish in 1936.
