The Fundamental Theorem of Algebra (Undergraduate Texts in Mathematics)

The elemental theorem of algebra states that any advanced polynomial should have a posh root. This ebook examines 3 pairs of proofs of the theory from 3 varied parts of arithmetic: summary algebra, advanced research and topology. the 1st facts in every one pair within reason straight forward and relies simply on what may be thought of ordinary arithmetic.

Introduction to Differential Geometry for Engineers (Dover Civil and Mechanical Engineering)

This extraordinary advisor provides very important mathematical instruments for various engineering functions, supplying engineers the elemental ideas and terminology of contemporary international differential geometry. appropriate for self reliant learn in addition to a supplementary textual content for complex undergraduate and graduate classes, this quantity additionally constitutes a beneficial reference for keep watch over, structures, aeronautical, electric, and mechanical engineers.

Worlds Out of Nothing: A Course in the History of Geometry in the 19th Century (Springer Undergraduate Mathematics Series)

In accordance with the newest historic examine, Worlds Out of not anything is the 1st booklet to supply a path at the heritage of geometry within the nineteenth century. themes lined within the first a part of the publication are projective geometry, in particular the concept that of duality, and non-Euclidean geometry. The e-book then strikes directly to the research of the singular issues of algebraic curves (Plücker’s equations) and their position in resolving a paradox within the conception of duality; to Riemann’s paintings on differential geometry; and to Beltrami’s position in effectively developing non-Euclidean geometry as a rigorous mathematical topic.

Perlen der Mathematik: 20 geometrische Figuren als Ausgangspunkte für mathematische Erkundungsreisen (German Edition)

Dieses Buch handelt von 20 geometrischen Figuren (Icons), die eine wichtige Rolle bei der Veranschaulichung mathematischer Beweise spielen. Alsina und Nelsen untersuchen die Mathematik, die hinter diesen Figuren steckt und die sich aus ihnen ableiten lässt. Jedem in diesem Buch behandelten Icons ist ein eigenes Kapitel gewidmet, in dem sein Alltagsbezug, seine wesentlichen mathematischen Eigenschaften sowie seine Bedeutung für visuelle Beweise vieler mathematischer Sätze betont werden.
