#### 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.

#### Problems & Solutions in Euclidean Geometry (Softcover)

$6.99

"Intended for a second course in Euclidean geometry, this volume is based on classical principles and can be used by students of mathematics as a supplementary text and by mechanical engineers as an aid to developing greater mathematical facility. It features 200 problems of increasing complexity with worked-out solutions, along with hints for additional problems." — From the back cover

#### Springer Undergraduate Mathematics Series: Elementary Differential Geometry (Softcover)

$27.99

"This book will prove an invaluable resource to all those taking a first course in differential geometry, for their lectures, and for all others interested in the subject." — From the back cover

#### Springer Undergraduate Mathematics Series: Matrix Groups: An Introduction to Lie Group Theory (Softcover)

$27.99

"Aimed at advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate students, this book provides a first taste of the theory of Lie groups as an appetiser for a more substantial further course." — From the back cover

#### Lectures on Functional Equations and Their Applications (Softcover)

$15.25

"This systematic treatment of one of the oldest topics of mathematical analysis—the solution of functional equations—features numerous detailed proofs. Thorough and elementary in its approach, it will benefit upper-level undergraduates as well as graduate students." — From the back cover

#### Variational Principles and Free-Boundary Problems (Softcover)

$15.99

"This advanced graduate-level text examines variational methods in partial differential equations and illustrates their applications to a number of free-boundary problems." — From the back cover

#### The MAA New Mathematical Library 20: Invitation to Number Theory (Softcover)

$13.97

"Number theory has been instrumental in introducing many of the most distinguished mathematicians, past and present, to the charms and mysteries of mathematical research. The purpose of this simple little guide will have been achieved if it should lead some of its readers to appreciate why the properties of numbers can be so fascinating. It would be better still if it would induce you to try to find some number relations of your own; new curiosities devised by young people turn up every year." — From the back cover

#### A Geometric Approach to Differential Forms (Softcover)

$15.95

"The modern subject of differential forms subsumes classical vector calculus. This text presents differential forms from a geometric perspective accessible at the undergraduate level." — From the back cover

#### Computer Graphics and Geometric Modeling: Mathematics (Hardback)

$12.49

"In addition to its use as a companion volume to computer graphics or geometric modeling courses, this volume would also make a good mathematics reference book, in particular for practitioners in the field of geometric modeling. Furthermore, because of its broad coverage and emphasis on explanation it could even be used as text for introductory mathematics courses on some of the covered topics, such as topology (general, combinatorial, algebraic, and differential) and geometry (differential and algebraic)." — From the back cover

#### Mathematical World, Volume 18: Portraits of the Earth: A Mathematician Looks at Maps (Softcover)

$26.15

"This book would make an excellent text for a basic undergraduate mathematics or geography course and would be especially appealing to the teacher who is interested in exciting visual applications in the classroom. It would also serve nicely as supplementary reading for a course in calculus, linear algebra, or differential geometry. Prerequisites include a strong grasp of trigonometry and basic calculus." — From the back cover
