By Nigel Ray,Grant Walker

J. Frank Adams had a profound effect on algebraic topology, and his works proceed to form its improvement. The overseas Symposium on Algebraic Topology held in Manchester in the course of July 1990 used to be devoted to his reminiscence, and almost the entire world's top specialists took half. This quantity paintings constitutes the complaints of the symposium; the articles contained the following diversity from overviews to stories of labor nonetheless in growth, in addition to a survey and whole bibliography of Adams' personal paintings. those court cases shape a major compendium of present learn in algebraic topology, and one who demonstrates the intensity of Adams' many contributions to the topic. right here within the first quantity the topic is especially risky homotopy concept, homological and express algebra. the second one quantity is orientated in the direction of strong homotopy thought, the Steenrod algebra and the Adams spectral sequence.

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

In response to the newest old examine, Worlds Out of not anything is the 1st e-book to supply a path at the historical past of geometry within the nineteenth century. themes lined within the first a part of the ebook are projective geometry, particularly the idea that of duality, and non-Euclidean geometry. The publication then strikes directly to the learn of the singular issues of algebraic curves (Plücker’s equations) and their function in resolving a paradox within the thought of duality; to Riemann’s paintings on differential geometry; and to Beltrami’s position in effectively constructing 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.
