By George K. Francis

Praise for George Francis's A Topological Picturebook:

Bravo to Springer for reissuing this designated and lovely ebook! It not just reminds the older new release of the pleasures of doing arithmetic by means of hand, but additionally indicates the recent new release what ``hands on'' fairly means.

- John Stillwell, college of San Francisco

The Topological Picturebook has taught a complete new release of mathematicians to attract, to work out, and to think.

- Tony Robbin, artist and writer of Shadows of fact: The Fourth measurement in Relativity, Cubism, and glossy Thought

The vintage reference for a way to give topological information visually, jam-packed with impressive hand-drawn pictures of advanced surfaces.

- John Sullivan, Technische Universitat Berlin

A Topological Picturebook shall we scholars see topology because the unique discoverers conceived it: concrete and visible, freed from the formalism that burdens traditional textbooks.

- Jeffrey Weeks, writer of The form of Space

A Topological Picturebook is a visible ceremonial dinner for someone thinking about mathematical images.  Francis presents beautiful examples to construct one's "visualization muscles".  even as, he explains the underlying rules and layout recommendations for readers to create their very own lucid drawings.

- George W. Hart, Stony Brook University

In this choice of narrative gem stones and fascinating hand-drawn photos, George Francis demonstrates the chicken-and-egg courting, in arithmetic, of picture and textual content. because the e-book used to be first released, the case for photographs in arithmetic has been gained, and now it's time to think about their which means. A Topological Picturebook is still indispensable.

- Marjorie Senechal, Smith university and co-editor of the Mathematical Intelligencer

New PDF release: Statistics on Special Manifolds (Lecture Notes in

Overlaying statistical research at the certain manifolds, the Stiefel manifold and the Grassmann manifold, this e-book is designed as a reference for either theoretical and utilized statisticians. it is going to even be used as a textbook for a graduate direction in multivariate research. it truly is assumed that the reader is aware the standard thought of univariate information and an intensive history in arithmetic, specifically, wisdom of multivariate calculation ideas.

The Nature and Power of Mathematics (Dover Books on by Donald M. Davis PDF

This appealing publication explains a few of arithmetic' such a lot attention-grabbing rules to nonspecialists. It explores goods of philosophical and historic curiosity, discusses the often-surprising applicability of arithmetic, and divulges the subject's intrinsic good looks. writer Donald M. Davis makes a speciality of 3 major components: non-Euclidean geometry, a foundation for relativity concept; quantity concept, an incredible portion of cryptography; and fractals, the foremost parts of computer-generated artwork.

Download PDF by Mike Crampin,David Saunders: Cartan Geometries and their Symmetries: A Lie Algebroid

During this e-book we first evaluation the information of Lie groupoid and Lie algebroid, and the linked innovations of connection. We subsequent give some thought to Lie groupoids of fibre morphisms of a  fibre package, and the connections on such groupoids including their symmetries. We additionally see how the infinitesimal technique, utilizing Lie algebroids instead of Lie groupoids, and specifically utilizing Lie algebroids of vector fields alongside the projection of the fibre package deal, should be of gain.

This well-written and fascinating quantity, meant for undergraduates, introduces knot conception, a space of turning out to be curiosity in modern arithmetic. The hands-on process gains many workouts to be accomplished through readers. necessities are just a simple familiarity with linear algebra and a willingness to discover the topic in a hands-on demeanour.
