Author: William T. Shaw
Brand: Brand: Cambridge University Press

Complex Analysis with Mathematica offers a new way of learning and teaching a subject that lies at the heart of many areas of pure and applied mathematics, physics, engineering and even art. This book offers teachers and students an opportunity to learn about complex numbers in a stateoftheart computational environment. The innovative approach also offers insights into many areas too often neglected in a student treatment, including complex chaos and mathematical art. Thus readers can also use the book for selfstudy and for enrichment. The use of Mathematica enables the author to cover several topics that are often absent from a traditional treatment. Students are also led, optionally, into cubic or quartic equations, investigations of symmetric chaos, and advanced conformal mapping. A CD is included which contains a live version of the book, and the Mathematica code enables the user to run computer experiments.

Mathematical Analysis: A Straightforward Approach, 2nd Edition
Lowest new price: $49.98
Lowest used price: $20.43
List price: $88.00
Author: K.G. Binmore
Brand: Brand: Cambridge University Press

For the second edition of this very successful text, Professor Binmore has written two chapters on analysis in vector spaces. The discussion extends to the notion of the derivative of a vector function as a matrix and the use of second derivatives in classifying stationary points. Some necessary concepts from linear algebra are included where appropriate. The first edition contained numerous worked examples and an ample collection of exercises for all of which solutions were provided at the end of the book. The second edition retains this feature but in addition offers a set of problems for which no solutions are given. Teachers may find this a helpful innovation.

Introduction to Topology
Lowest new price: $38.41
Lowest used price: $29.47
List price: $40.43
Author: Crump W. Baker

This text is intended for a onesemester undergraduate course in topology. The fundamental concepts of general topology are covered rigorously but at a gentle pace and an elementary level. It is accessible to students with only an elementary calculus background. In particular, abstract algebra is not a prerequisite. The first chapter develops the elementary concepts of sets and functions, and in Chapter 2 the general topological space is introduced. Subspaces, continuity, and homeomorphisms are covered in Chapter 3. The remaining chapters cover product spaces, connected spaces, separation properties, and metric spaces.

Yet Another Introduction to Analysis
Lowest new price: $47.29
Lowest used price: $21.69
List price: $56.00
Author: Victor Bryant
Brand: Brand: Cambridge University Press

Mathematics education in schools has seen a revolution in recent years. Students everywhere expect the subject to be wellmotivated, relevant and practical. When such students reach higher education, the traditional development of analysis, often divorced from the calculus they learned at school, seems highly inappropriate. Shouldn't every step in a first course in analysis arise naturally from the student's experience of functions and calculus in school? And shouldn't such a course take every opportunity to endorse and extend the student's basic knowledge of functions? In Yet Another Introduction to Analysis, the author steers a simple and wellmotivated path through the central ideas of real analysis. Each concept is introduced only after its need has become clear and after it has already been used informally. Wherever appropriate, new ideas are related to common topics in math curricula and are used to extend the reader's understanding of those topics. In this book the readers are led carefully through every step in such a way that they will soon be predicting the next step for themselves. In this way students will not only understand analysis, but also enjoy it.

A Hilbert Space Problem Book (Graduate Texts in Mathematics)
Lowest new price: $53.72
Lowest used price: $40.00
List price: $74.95
Author: P.R. Halmos

From the Preface: "This book was written for the active reader. The first part consists of problems, frequently preceded by definitions and motivation, and sometimes followed by corollaries and historical remarks... The second part, a very short one, consists of hints... The third part, the longest, consists of solutions: proofs, answers, or contructions, depending on the nature of the problem.... This is not an introduction to Hilbert space theory. Some knowledge of that subject is a prerequisite: at the very least, a study of the elements of Hilbert space theory should proceed concurrently with the reading of this book."

Complex Analysis (Cambridge Studies in Advanced Mathematics)
Lowest new price: $76.93
Lowest used price: $156.88
List price: $105.00
Author: Kunihiko Kodaira
Brand: Brand: Cambridge University Press

This textbook is an introduction to the classical theory of functions of a complex variable. The author's aim is to explain the basic theory in an easy to understand and careful way. He emphasizes geometrical considerations, and, to avoid topological difficulties associated with complex analysis, begins by deriving Cauchy's integral formula in a topologically simple case and then deduces the basic properties of continuous and differentiable functions. The remainder of the book deals with conformal mappings, analytic continuation, Riemann's mapping theorem, Riemann surfaces and analytic functions on a Riemann surface. The book is profusely illustrated and includes many examples. Problems are collected together at the end of the book. It should be an ideal text for either a first course in complex analysis or more advanced study.

Complex Analysis: The Geometric Viewpoint, Second Edition (Carus Mathematical Monographs)
Lowest new price: $53.20
Lowest used price: $29.90
List price: $56.00
Author: Steven G. Krantz

In this second edition of a Carus Monograph Classic, Steven G. Krantz, a leading worker in complex analysis and a winner of the Chauvenet Prize for outstanding mathematical exposition, develops material on classical nonEuclidean geometry. He shows how it can be developed in a natural way from the invariant geometry of the complex disk. He also introduces the Bergmann kernel and metric and provides profound applications, some of which have never appeared in print before. In general, the new edition represents a considerable polishing and rethinking of the original successful volume. A minimum of geometric formalism is used to gain a maximum of geometric and analytic insight. The climax of the book is an introduction to several complex variables from the geometric viewpoint. Poincaré's theorem, that the ball and bidisc are biholomorphically inequivalent, is discussed and proved.

Topological Methods in Galois Representation Theory (WileyInterscience and Canadian Mathematics Series of Monographs and Texts)
Lowest new price: $2,420.43
Lowest used price: $44.99
List price: $76.95
Author: Victor P. Snaith

Written by one of the world's leading algebraic topologists, this book introduces new techniques from topology into algebra, addressing several topics in algebra which are unified by their connection with the representation theory of Galois groups. Treatment is selfcontained, addressing bilinear forms and local root numbers using techniques from cohomology theory, homotopy, and stable homotopy theory. Snaith's innovative approach is likely to inspire many similar applications of the explicit Brauer induction theory. Contains much original research of interest to algebraic topologists, number theorists, and group theorists.


Continuous Geometry
Lowest new price: $28.78
Lowest used price: $12.50
List price: $90.00
Author: John von Neumann
Brand: Brand: Princeton University Press

In his work on rings of operators in Hilbert space, John von Neumann discovered a new mathematical structure that resembled the lattice system Ln. In characterizing its properties, von Neumann founded the field of continuous geometry. This book, based on von Neumann's lecture notes, begins with the development of the axioms of continuous geometry, dimension theory, andfor the irreducible casethe function D(a). The properties of regular rings are then discussed, and a variety of results are presented for lattices that are continuous geometries, for which irreducibility is not assumed. For students and researchers interested in ring theory or projective geometries, this book is required reading.
