By Eli Maor,Eugen Jost
If you have ever suggestion that arithmetic and artwork do not combine, this wonderful visible historical past of geometry will switch your brain. As a lot a piece of paintings as a publication approximately arithmetic, Beautiful Geometry offers greater than sixty beautiful colour plates illustrating a variety of geometric styles and theorems, followed via short debts of the attention-grabbing background and folks in the back of every one. With paintings by means of Swiss artist Eugen Jost and textual content by way of math historian Eli Maor, this particular party of geometry covers various matters, from straightedge-and-compass structures to exciting configurations regarding infinity. the result's a pleasant and informative illustrated travel during the 2,500-year-old background of 1 of an important branches of mathematics.

Dieser „Prüfungstrainer" wendet sich an Studierende mit Mathematik als Haupt- oder Nebenfach, die – insbesondere bei der Prüfungs- oder Klausurvorbereitung – den Wunsch verspüren, als Ergänzung zu den Lehrbüchern den Grundstudiums-Stoff der Linearen Algebra noch einmal in pointierter shape vorliegen zu haben, zugespitzt auf dasjenige, was once guy wirklich wissen und beherrschen sollte, um eine Prüfung erfolgreich zu bestehen und exakte Antworten auf mögliche Fragen formulieren zu können.
Articles study the contributions of the good mathematician J. M. Hoene-Wronski. even if a lot of his paintings used to be pushed aside in the course of his lifetime, it's now famous that his paintings bargains useful perception into the character of arithmetic. The booklet starts off with elementary-level discussions and ends with discussions of present learn.
This publication is an advent to singularities for graduate scholars and researchers. it's acknowledged that algebraic geometry originated within the 17th century with the recognized paintings Discours de l. a. méthode pour bien conduire sa raison, et chercher los angeles vérité dans les sciences via Descartes. In that ebook he brought coordinates to the learn of geometry.
This publication is an creation to fashionable tools of symplectic topology. it's dedicated to explaining the answer of an incredible challenge originating from classical mechanics: the 'Arnold conjecture', which asserts that the variety of 1-periodic trajectories of a non-degenerate Hamiltonian method is bounded under by means of the measurement of the homology of the underlying manifold.
