Beautiful Geometry by Eli Maor,Eugen Jost

By Eli Maor,Eugen Jost

If you have ever inspiration that arithmetic and paintings do not combine, this attractive visible background of geometry will swap your brain. As a lot a piece of artwork as a e-book approximately arithmetic, Beautiful Geometry offers greater than sixty beautiful colour plates illustrating quite a lot of geometric styles and theorems, followed via short debts of the interesting heritage and other people in the back of every one. With art by means of Swiss artist Eugen Jost and textual content by way of math historian Eli Maor, this exact social gathering of geometry covers quite a few matters, from straightedge-and-compass structures to exciting configurations related to infinity. the result's a pleasant and informative illustrated journey throughout the 2,500-year-old heritage of 1 of crucial branches of mathematics.

Differential Geometry of Varieties with Degenerate Gauss Maps (CMS Books in Mathematics)

This e-book surveys the differential geometry of types with degenerate Gauss maps, utilizing relocating frames and external differential types in addition to tensor tools. The authors illustrate the constitution of types with degenerate Gauss maps, make certain the singular issues and singular types, locate focal pictures and build a type of the forms with degenerate Gauss maps.

Bridging Mathematics, Statistics, Engineering and Technology: Contributions from the Fall 2011 Seminar on Mathematical Sciences and Applications: 24 (Springer Proceedings in Mathematics & Statistics)

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​This quantity comprises the invited contributions from talks brought within the Fall 2011 sequence of the Seminar on Mathematical Sciences and purposes 2011 at Virginia kingdom collage. participants to this quantity, who're  top researchers of their fields, current their paintings in how to generate actual interdisciplinary interplay.

Plane and Solid Geometry: Selected Topics in Plane and Solid Geometry (Universitext)

It is a booklet on Euclidean geometry that covers the traditional fabric in a totally new approach, whereas additionally introducing a couple of new subject matters that may be appropriate as a junior-senior point undergraduate textbook. the writer doesn't commence within the conventional demeanour with summary geometric axioms. as a substitute, he assumes the genuine numbers, and starts his therapy through introducing such smooth suggestions as a metric area, vector house notation, and teams, and therefore lays a rigorous foundation for geometry whereas whilst giving the coed instruments that would be valuable in different classes.

A Fête of Topology: Papers Dedicated to Itiro Tamura

A Fête of Topology: Papers devoted to Itiro Tamura makes a speciality of the growth within the tactics, methodologies, and methods enthusiastic about topology, together with foliations, cohomology, and floor bundles. The e-book first takes a glance at leaf closures in Riemannian foliations and differentiable singular cohomology for foliations.
