#### K12 Mathematics, Volume 5 (Softcover)

$6.35

**Fundraiser Item**"This year you will build on the mathematical skills you already know, as you explore

*new*ideas. ... To further assist you in monitoring your progress in mathematics, the authors of the textbook have identified the Grade 5*California Mathematics Content Standards*for each lesson in this book." — from "Welcome to Progress in Mathematics" (page xi)#### K12 Mathematics, Volume 3 (Softcover)

$5.95

**Fundraiser Item**"Whether or not you realize it, you see and use mathematics every day! The lessons and activities in this textbook will help you enjoy mathematics

*and*become a better mathematician." — from "Welcome to Progress in Mathematics" on Page xi#### Universitext: Geometry of Surfaces (Softcover)

$27.59

"

*Geometry of Surfaces*explores the interplay between geometry and topology in the simplest nontrivial case: the surfaces of constant curvature. As such, it provides a concise introduction to modern geometry for a wide audience." — From the back cover#### Euclidean and Non-Euclidean Geometry: An Analytic Approach (Softcover)

$23.39

"This book gives a rigorous treatment of the fundamentals of plane geometry — Euclidean, spherical, elliptical, and hyperbolic — from an analytic point of view." — From the back cover

#### Undergraduate Texts in Mathematics: Numbers and Geometry (Hardback)

$33.59

"

*Numbers and Geometry*is a beautiful and relatively elementary account of a part of mathematics where three main fields—algebra, analysis, and geometry—meet. The aim of this book is to give a broad view of these subjects at the level of calculus, without being a calculus (or a pre-calculus) book." — From the back cover#### Graduate Texts in Mathematics: Riemannian Manifolds: An Introduction to Curvature (Softcover)

$33.99

"This book is designed for a one-quarter or one-semester graduate course on Riemannian geometry. It focuses on developing an intimate acquaintance with the geometric meaning of curvature and thereby introduces and demonstrates all the main technical tools needed for a more advanced study of Riemannian manifolds." — From the back cover

#### Graduate Texts in Mathematics: Algebraic Geometry: A First Course (Hardback)

$29.95

"These books are intended to introduce students to algebraic geometry; to give them a sense of the basic objects considered, the questions asked about them, and the sort of answers one can expect to obtain. It thus emphasizes the classical roots of the subject." — From the back cover

#### Polyhedra (Softcover)

$45.99

"Polyhedra have cropped up in many different guises throughout recorded history. In modern times, polyhedra and their symmetries have been cast in a new light by combinatorics and group theory." — From the back cover

#### Problem-Solving Through Problems (Softcover)

$59.49

"This is a practical anthology of some of the best elementary problems in different branches of mathematics. They are selected for their aesthetic appeal as well as their instructional value, and are organized to highlight the most common problem-solving techniques encountered in undergraduate mathematics." — From the back cover

#### Handbook of Mathematics and Computational Science (Hardback)

$39.50

"The Harris and Stocker Handbook of Mathematics and Computation Science is a complete desk-top reference for working scientists, engineers, and students. It serves as a veritable math toolbox for rapid access to a wealth of mathematics information for everyday use in problem solving, homework, examinations, etc." — From the back cover

#### The Geometry of Physics: An Introduction, Revised Edition (Softcover)

$37.79

"This book is intended to provide a working knowledge of those parts of exterior differential forms, differential geometry, algebraic and differential topology, Lie groups, vector bundles and Chern forms that are essential for a deeper understanding of both classical and modern physics and engineering." — From the back cover

#### Methods of Information Geometry (Softcover)

$54.95

"The first half of this book is devoted to a comprehensive introduction to the mathematical foundation of information geometry, including preliminaries from differential geometry, the geometry of manifolds or probability distributions, and the general theory of dual affine connections. the second half of the text provides an overview of many areas of applications, such as statistics, linear systems, information theory, quantum mechanics, convex analysis, neural networks, and affine differential geometry. The book can serve as a suitable text for a topics course for advanced undergraduates and graduate students." — From the back cover

#### Algebra and Geometry (Softcover)

$35.49

"This text gives a basic introduction and a unified approach to algebra and geometry. It covers the ideas of complex numbers, scalar and vector products, determinants, linear algebra, group theory, permutation groups, symmetry groups and various aspects of geometry including groups of isometries, rotations, and spherical geometry." — From the back cover

#### 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

#### A Course in Metric Geometry (Hardback)

$35.79

"This book is not a research monograph or a reference book (although research interests of the authors influenced it a lot)—this is a textbook. Its structure is similar to that of a graduate course." — From the Preface (page xi)

#### Three-Dimensional Geometry and Topology, Volume 1 (Hardback)

$55.75

"This book develops some of the extraordinary richness, beauty, and power of geometry in two and three dimensions, and the strong connection of geometry with topology." — From the back cover

#### On Quaternions and Octonions: Their Geometry, Arithmetic, and Symmetry (Hardback)

$23.75

"The programmers of video games make heavy use of quaternions, as do the controllers of spacecraft, since in both these disciplines it is necessary to compose rotations with minimal computation. We have eschewed writing of these and other practical applications ..." — From the Preface (page xii)

#### Introduction to Geometric Probability (Softcover)

$35.49

"This is the first modern introduction to geometric probability, also known as integral geometry. The subject is presented at an elementary level, requiring little more than first-year graduate mathematics." — From the back cover

#### Introduction to Geometric Probability (Softcover) [3201]

$35.49

"This is the first modern introduction to geometric probability, also known as integral geometry. The subject is presented at an elementary level, requiring little more than first-year graduate mathematics." — From the back cover
