Beautiful, Simple, Exact, Crazy: Mathematics in the Real by Apoorva Khare, Anna Lachowska

By Apoorva Khare, Anna Lachowska

During this vivid paintings, that's perfect for either educating and studying, Apoorva Khare and Anna Lachowska clarify the maths crucial for knowing and appreciating our quantitative international. They exhibit with examples that arithmetic is a key software within the production and appreciation of paintings, song, and literature, not only technology and know-how. The booklet covers simple mathematical themes from logarithms to stats, however the authors eschew mundane finance and likelihood difficulties. in its place, they clarify how modular mathematics is helping preserve our on-line transactions secure, how logarithms justify the twelve-tone scale frequent in tune, and the way transmissions via deep area probes are just like knights serving as messengers for his or her touring prince. perfect for coursework in introductory arithmetic and requiring no wisdom of calculus, Khare and Lachowska's enlightening arithmetic travel will attract a large viewers.

Einstein Manifolds: reprint of the 1987 edition, with 22 figures

Einstein's equations stem from common Relativity. within the context of Riemannian manifolds, an self reliant mathematical idea has built round them. lately, it has produced numerous remarkable effects, which were of serious curiosity additionally to physicists. This Ergebnisse quantity is the 1st ebook which provides an updated assessment of the cutting-edge during this box.

Monopoles and Three-Manifolds

Originating with Andreas Floer within the Nineteen Eighties, Floer homology offers an invariant of 3-dimensional manifolds and 4-dimensional cobordisms among them. It has proved to be a good instrument in tackling many vital difficulties in 3- and 4-dimensional geometry and topology. This booklet presents a accomplished remedy of Floer homology, in line with the Seiberg-Witten equations.
