By Irving Adler,Ruth Adler,Peter Ruane

This richly specific evaluate surveys the evolution of geometrical principles and the improvement of the techniques of contemporary geometry from precedent days to the current. themes comprise projective, Euclidean, and non-Euclidean geometry in addition to the position of geometry in Newtonian physics, calculus, and relativity. Over a hundred workouts with solutions. 1966 edition.

General Investigations of Curved Surfaces: Edited with an Introduction and Notes by Peter Pesic (Dover Books on Mathematics)

Gauss's idea of surfaces is one of the merely mathematical achievements encouraged by way of rules that arose in reference to surveys of the outside of the earth. lengthy considered as a masterpiece in content material and shape, this paintings positive factors one of many author's most unique contributions to mathematics--the discovery that Gauss termed the "Theorema Egregium.

The Local Structure of Algebraic K-Theory: 18 (Algebra and Applications)

Algebraic K-theory encodes very important invariants for a number of mathematical disciplines, spanning from geometric topology and useful research to quantity idea and algebraic geometry. As is usually encountered, this robust mathematical item is especially not easy to calculate. except Quillen's calculations of finite fields and Suslin's calculation of algebraically closed fields, few whole calculations have been on hand earlier than the invention of homological invariants provided by means of motivic cohomology and topological cyclic homology.

Fractal Solutions for Understanding Complex Systems in Earth Sciences (Springer Earth System Sciences)

This publication offers with fractals in knowing difficulties encountered in earth technological know-how, and their suggestions. It starts off with an research of 2 sessions of equipment (homogeneous fractals random versions, and homogeneous resource distributions or “one aspect” distributions) commonly subtle within the geophysical group, in particular for learning power fields and their similar resource distributions.
