Joseph Liouville 1809-1882: Integration in finite terms. by Luetzen J.

By Luetzen J.

Liouville left greater than 340 notebooks, which include greater than 40,000 pages during which he tested a good number of subject matters. the writer has spent years learning that fabric, and has produced a superbly superb medical biography. partially I (six chapters) he recounts the outward occasions of Liouville's lifestyles and profession. partially II (which with its appendices runs to greater than 500 pages) he experiences serially (and brilliantly) Liouville's assorted contributions to physics and to arithmetic (exclusive of his contributions to quantity theory). either Lutzen and his writer are to be complemented for a most excellent accomplishment, the creation of a ebook which belongs totally in each mathematical library, and with the intention to be consulted/read with admiring excitement via generations of Liouville's successors.

Famous Puzzles of Great Mathematicians by Miodrag S. Petkovi?

By Miodrag S. Petkovi?

This exciting booklet offers a suite of a hundred and eighty well-known mathematical puzzles and interesting straightforward difficulties that fab mathematicians have posed, mentioned, and/or solved. the chosen difficulties don't require complicated arithmetic, making this ebook available to numerous readers. Mathematical recreations provide a wealthy playground for either beginner mathematicians. Believing that inventive stimuli and aesthetic issues are heavily similar, nice mathematicians from precedent days to the current have continuously taken an curiosity in puzzles and diversions. The target of this e-book is to teach that recognized mathematicians have all communicated excellent principles, methodological methods, and absolute genius in mathematical options by utilizing leisure arithmetic as a framework. Concise biographies of many mathematicians pointed out within the textual content also are integrated. nearly all of the mathematical difficulties awarded during this ebook originated in quantity conception, graph conception, optimization, and chance. Others are in keeping with combinatorial and chess difficulties, whereas nonetheless others are geometrical and arithmetical puzzles.

Algebra by Serge Lang

By Serge Lang

This ebook is meant as a easy textual content for a one-year path in Algebra on the graduate point, or as an invaluable reference for mathematicians and execs who use higher-level algebra. It effectively addresses the fundamental suggestions of algebra. For the revised 3rd version, the writer has further routines and made various corrections to the text.

Comments on Serge Lang's Algebra:
"Lang's Algebra replaced the way in which graduate algebra is taught, keeping classical issues yet introducing language and methods of pondering from class thought and homological algebra. It has affected all next graduate-level algebra books."
-April 1999 Notices of the AMS, asserting that the writer used to be provided the Leroy P. Steele Prize for Mathematical Exposition for his many arithmetic books.

"The writer has a magnificent knack for offering the real and fascinating rules of algebra in precisely the "right" manner, and he by no means will get slowed down within the dry formalism which pervades a few elements of algebra."
-MathSciNet's overview of the 1st variation
