    $49.95

    "When familiar at least with the basics of measure theoretic probability, one may use this book to get a feel for the type of problems one tackles with the given methods and the type of results one can expect and then proceed to more detailed expositions.... The book is an impressive achievement."—Mathematical Reviews

  • The Queen of Mathematics: A Historically Motivated Guide to Number Theory (Hardback)

    The Queen of Mathematics: A Historically Motivated Guide to Number Theory (Hardback)

    $49.50

    "Starting in the fall of 1986, I combined my interests in number theory and history by teaching a one-year course in number theory from a historical prospective. The course used historical highlights to show the development of various topics, and I included some discussion about the lives of famous number theorists. My lecture notes for the course turned into a more formal set of notes, which turned into this book. Both the spirit and organization of material in the book remain those of my original lectures." — Jay R. Goldman, author, in the Preface

  • The Quantum Theory of Fields, Volume I: Foundations (Hardback)

    The Quantum Theory of Fields, Volume I: Foundations (Hardback)

    $49.59

    "In The Quantum Theory of Fields Nobel Laureate Steven Weinberg combines his exceptional physical insight with his gift for clear exposition to provide a self-contained, comprehensive, and up-to-date introduction to quantum field theory." — From the dust jacket

  • Optimal Control and the Calculus of Variations (Softcover)

    Optimal Control and the Calculus of Variations (Softcover)

    $48.29

    "This book provides the core material for undergraduate courses on optimal control, the modern development that has grown out of the calculus of variations and classical optimization theory. It is ideally suited to the needs of final year undergraduates, but will also be useful to engineers and scientists with an interest in the subject." — From the back cover

  • Classical Mechanics: Theory and Mathematical Modeling (Hardcover)

    Classical Mechanics: Theory and Mathematical Modeling (Hardcover)

    $49.95

    "Classical mechanics is a chief example of the scientific method organizing a 'complex' collection of information into theoretically rigorous, unifying principles; in this sense, mechanics represents one of the highest forms of mathematical modeling. This textbook covers standard topics of a mechanics course, namely, the mechanics of rigid bodies, Lagrangian and Hamiltonian formalism, stability and small oscillations, an introduction to celestial mechanics, and Hamilton-Jacobi theory, but at the same time features unique examples—such as the spinning top including friction and gyroscopic compass—seldom appearing in this context. In addition, variational principles like Lagrangian and Hamiltonian dynamics are treated in great detail." — From the back cover

  • London Mathematical Society Student Texts 23: Complex Algebraic Curves (Softcover)

    London Mathematical Society Student Texts 23: Complex Algebraic Curves (Softcover)

    $45.89

    "This book grew from a lecture course given by Dr Kirwan at Oxford University and will be an excellent companion for final year undergraduates and graduates who are studying complex algebraic curves." — From the back cover

  • An Invitation to Modern Number Theory (Hardback)

    An Invitation to Modern Number Theory (Hardback)

    $47.49

    "In a manner accessible to beginning undergraduates, An Invitation to Modern Number Theory introduces many of the central problems, conjectures, results, and techniques of the field, such as the Riemann Hypothesis, Roth's Theorem, the Circle Method, and Random Matrix Theory." — From the back cover

  • Introduction to Quantum Groups and Crystal Bases (Hardback)

    Introduction to Quantum Groups and Crystal Bases (Hardback)

    $46.95

    "In this book, we focus on the quantum groups that appear as certain deformations of universal enveloping algebras of Kac-Moody algebras." — From "Introduction" (page xii)

    "This second edition of Baumann's Mathematica® in Theoretical Physics shows readers how to solve physical problems and deal with their underlying theoretical concepts while using Mathematica® to derive numeric and symbolic solutions." — From the back cover

  • An Episodic History of Mathematics: Mathematical Culture Through Problem Solving (Hardback)

    An Episodic History of Mathematics: Mathematical Culture Through Problem Solving (Hardback)

    $48.95

    "An Episodic History of Mathematics will acquaint students with mathematical language, thought, and life by means of historically important mathematical vignettes. It will also serve to help perspective teachers become more familiar with important ideas in the history of mathematics—both classical and modern." — From the back cover

  • Iterative Methods for Solving Linear Systems (Softcover)

    Iterative Methods for Solving Linear Systems (Softcover)

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)

  • Oxford Science Publications: The Quantum Theory of Light, Third Edition (Softcover)

    Oxford Science Publications: The Quantum Theory of Light, Third Edition (Softcover)
