  • 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)

  • An Introduction to Random Matrices (Hardback)

    An Introduction to Random Matrices (Hardback)

    $53.95

    "The theory of random matrices plays an important role in many areas of pure mathematics and employs a variety of sophisticated mathematical tools (analytical, probabilistic, and combinatorial). This diverse array of tools, while attesting to the vitality of the field, presents several formidable obstacles to the newcomer, and even to the expert probabilist. This rigorous introduction to the basic theory is sufficiently self-contained to be accessible to graduate students in mathematics or related sciences who have mastered probability theory at the graduate level, but who have not necessarily been exposed to advanced notions of functional analysis, algebra, or geometry." — From the back cover

  • Graduate Texts in Mathematics: Introduction to Topological Manifolds (Softcover)

    Graduate Texts in Mathematics: Introduction to Topological Manifolds (Softcover)

    $39.95

    "This book is an introduction to manifolds at the beginning graduate level. It contains the essential topological ideas that are needed for the further study of manifolds, particularly in the context of differential geometry, algebraic topology, and related fields. Its guiding philosophy is to develop these ideas rigorously but economically with minimal prerequisites and plenty of geometric intuition." — From the back cover

  • 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

  • Optimal Control Theory: An Introduction (Softcover)

    Optimal Control Theory: An Introduction (Softcover)

    $11.25

    "Optimal control theory is the science of maximizing the returns from and minimizing the costs of the operation of physical, social, and economic processes. Geared toward upper-level undergraduates, this text introduces three aspects of optimal control theory: dynamic programming, Pontryagin's minimum principle, and numerical techniques for trajectory optimization." — From the back cover

  • Universitext: Geometry of Surfaces (Softcover)

    Universitext: Geometry of Surfaces (Softcover)
