Mathematical Analysis: A Straightforward Approach, 2nd Edition
Lowest new price: $49.98
Lowest used price: $18.14
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.

Orbit and Constellation Design and Management (Space Technology Library, Vol. 13)  Renewed Edition
Lowest new price: $53.78
Lowest used price: $46.00
List price: $59.75
Author: James R Wertz
Brand: Brand: Microcosm, Inc

Orbit and Constellation Design and Management (OCDM) provides greatly expanded detail on many topics first introduced in the 2 of the earlier Wertz works  Spacecraft Attitude Determination and Control (SADC) and Space Mission Analysis and Design (SMAD). If these two books got you started in mission engineering and you need more detail on the key area of Spacecraft Orbit and Attitude Systems (SOAS), then this book provides more detail in SOAS requirements definition, mission geometry, orbit and constellation design, relative motion of satellites, observation and measurement systems engineering, orbit control and management, and similar topics.

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: $29.80
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. PoincarĂ©'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: $2,420.42
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: $27.16
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.
