"

*I Want to Be a Mathematician*is an account of the author's life as a mathematician—an automathography." — From the back cover#### 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)

$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#### 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

#### Exploring Abstract Algebra with Mathematica® (Softcover with CD-ROM)

$35.59

"

*Exploring Abstract Algebra with Mathematica®*, a book and CD package containing twenty-seven interactive labs on group and ring theory built around a suite of*Mathematica®*packages called AbstractAlgebra, is a novel learning environment for an introductory abstract algebra course." — 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

#### 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

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

"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

#### Orthogonal Polynomials and Random Matrices: A Riemann-Hilbert Approach (Softcover)

$27.59

"This volume expands on a set of lectures held at the Courant Institute on Riemann-Hlibert problems, orthogonal polynomials, and random matrix theory.

#### Carl Friedrich Gauss: Titan of Science (Hardback)

$32.95

"This biography of Gauss, by far the most comprehensive in English, is the work of a professor of German, G. Waldo Dunnington, who devoted most of his scholarly career to studying the life of Germany's greatest mathematicians. The author was inspired to pursue this project at the age of twelve when he learned from his teacher in Missouri that no full biography of Gauss existed at the time. His teacher was Gauss's great granddaughter, Minna Waldeck Gauss." — From the back cover

#### A Radical Approach to Lebesgues's Theory of Integration (Softcover)

$31.59

"Meant for advanced undergraduate and graduate students in mathematics, this lively introduction to measure theory and Lebesgue integration is rooted in and motivated by the historical questions that led to its development.

#### Measure and Integral: An Introduction to Real Analysis (Hardback)

$53.29

"This volume develops the classical theory of the Lebesgue integral and some of its applications. The integral is initially presented in the context of

*n*-dimensional Euclidean space, following a thorough study of the concepts of outer measure and measure. A more general treatment of the integral, based on an axiomatic approach, is later given." — From the back cover#### Introduction to Analysis of the Infinite, Book I (Hardback)

$89.95

"...I have divided this work into two books; in the first of these I have confined myself to those matters concerning pure analysis. In the second book I have explained those things which must be known from geometry, since analysis is ordinarily developed in such a way that its application to geometry is shown. ... [I]n the first book, since all of analysis is concerned with variable quantities and functions of such variables, I have given full treatment to functions. I have also treated the transformation of functions and functions as the sum of infinite series. In addition I have developed functions in infinite series..." — From the Preface by the Author, Leonhard Euler

#### Conceptual Mathematics: A First Introduction to Categories (Softcover)

$32.49

"In the last fifty years, the use of the notion of 'category' has led to a remarkable unification and simplification of mathematics. Written by two of the best-known participants in this development,

*Conceptual Mathematics*is the first book to serve both as a skeleton key to mathematics for the general reader or beginning student and as an introduction to categories for computer scientists, logicians, physicists, linguistics, etc." — From the back cover#### The Lambda Calculus: Its Syntax and Semantics, Revised Edition (Softcover)

$24.99

"Around 1930 the type free lambda calculus was introduced as a foundation for logic and mathematics. Due to the appearance of paradoxes, this aim was not fulfilled, however. Nevertheless a consistent part of the theory turned out to be quite successful as a theory of computations. It gave an imporatnt momentum to early recusion theory and more recently to computer science." — From the back cover
