- Testimonios: Stories of Latinx and Hispanic Mathematicians by Pamela E. Harris; Alicia Prieto Langarica; Vanessa Rivera Quiñones; Luis Alfonso Sordo Vieira; Rosaura Uscanga Lomeli; Andrés Rodolfo Vindas Meléndez; Ana Valle (Illustrator)ISBN: 9781470466572Publication Date: 2021-08-01 American Mathematical SocietyTestimonios brings together first-person narratives from the vibrant, diverse, and complex Latinx and Hispanic mathematical community. Starting with childhood and family, the authors recount their own individual stories, highlighting their upbringing, education, and career paths. Their particular stories, told in their own voices, from their own perspectives, give visibility to some of the experiences of Latinx/Hispanic mathematicians.
- Topology by Tai-Danae Bradley; Tyler Bryson; John TerillaISBN: 9780262539357Publication Date: 2020-08-18A graduate-level textbook that presents basic topology from the perspective of category theory. This graduate-level textbook on topology takes a unique approach: it reintroduces basic, point-set topology from a more modern, categorical perspective. Many graduate students are familiar with the ideas of point-set topology and they are ready to learn something new about them. Teaching the subject using category theory--a contemporary branch of mathematics that provides a way to represent abstract concepts--both deepens students' understanding of elementary topology and lays a solid foundation for future work in advanced topics.
- The Princeton Companion to Applied Mathematics by Nicholas J. Higham (Editor); Mark R. Dennis (Associate Editor); Paul Glendinning (Associate Editor); Paul A. Martin (Associate Editor); Fadil Santosa (Associate Editor); Jared Tanner (Associate Editor)ISBN: 9781400874477Publication Date: 2015-09-15The must-have compendium on applied mathematics This is the most authoritative and accessible single-volume reference book on applied mathematics. Featuring numerous entries by leading experts and organized thematically, it introduces readers to applied mathematics and its uses; explains key concepts; describes important equations, laws, and functions; looks at exciting areas of research; covers modeling and simulation; explores areas of application; and more. Modeled on the popular Princeton Companion to Mathematics, this volume is an indispensable resource for undergraduate and graduate students, researchers, and practitioners in other disciplines seeking a user-friendly reference book on applied mathematics.
- Building Support for Scholarly Practices in Mathematics Methods by Signe E. KastbergISBN: 9781641130257Publication Date: 2017-12-01A book on best practices in teaching mathematics.
- Bernoulli's Fallacy by Aubrey ClaytonCall Number: ebook on order; link available soonISBN: 9780231553353Publication Date: 2021 Columbia UPAubrey Clayton traces the history of the flaw that underlies modern statistics, beginning with the seventeenth-century mathematician Jacob Bernoulli and winding through gambling, astronomy, and genetics. Ranging across math, philosophy, and culture, Bernoulli’s Fallacy explains why something has gone wrong with how we use data—and how to fix it.
- Algebraic Methods of Mathematical Logic by Ladislav RiegerCall Number: on orderISBN: 9781483270524Publication Date: 2014-05-12Algebraic Methods of Mathematical Logic focuses on the algebraic methods of mathematical logic, including Boolean algebra, mathematical language, and arithmetization. The book first offers information on the dialectic of the relation between mathematical and metamathematical aspects; metamathematico-mathematical parallelism and its natural limits; practical applications of methods of mathematical logic; and principal mathematical tools of mathematical logic. The text then elaborates on the language of mathematics and its symbolization and recursive construction of the relation of consequence. Discussions focus on recursive construction of the relation of consequence, fundamental descriptively-semantic rules, mathematical logic and mathematical language as a material system of signs, and the substance and purpose of symbolization of mathematical language. The publication examines expressive possibilities of symbolization; intuitive and mathematical notions of an idealized axiomatic mathematical theory; and the algebraic theory of elementary predicate logic. Topics include the notion of Boolean algebra based on joins, meets, and complementation, logical frame of a language and mathematical theory, and arithmetization and algebraization. The manuscript is a valuable reference for mathematicians and researchers interested in the algebraic methods of mathematical logic.
- Differential Equations by Steven KrantzCall Number: ebook on order; link available soonISBN: 9781003009504Publication Date: 2020-02-03This new book from one of the most published authors in all of mathematics is an attempt to offer a new, more modern take on the Differential Equations course. The world is changing. Because of the theory of wavelets, Fourier analysis is ever more important and central. And applications are a driving force behind much of mathematics.This text text presents a more balanced picture. The text covers differential equations (both ordinary and partial), Fourier analysis and applications in equal measure and with equal weight. The Riemann integral is used throughout. We do not assume that the student knows any functional analysis. We likewise do not assume that the student has had a course in undergraduate real analysis. To make the book timely and exciting, a substantial chapter on basic properties of wavelets, with applications to signal processing and image processing is included. This should give students and instructors alike a taste of what is happening in the subject today.
- Illustrating Mathematics by Diana Davis (Editor)Call Number: ebook on order; link available soonISBN: 9781470461225Publication Date: 2021-01-30This book is for anyone who wishes to illustrate their mathematical ideas, which in our experience means everyone. It is organized by material, rather than by subject area, and purposefully emphasizes the process of creating things, including discussions of failures that occurred along the way. As a result, the reader can learn from the experiences of those who came before, and will be inspired to create their own illustrations. Topics illustrated within include prime numbers, fractals, the Klein bottle, Borromean rings, tilings, space-filling curves, knot theory, billiards, complex dynamics, algebraic surfaces, groups and prime ideals, the Riemann zeta function, quadratic fields, hyperbolic space, and hyperbolic 3-manifolds. Everyone who opens this book should find a type of mathematics with which they identify. Each contributor explains the mathematics behind their illustration at an accessible level, so that all readers can appreciate the beauty of both the object itself and the mathematics behind it.
- Conversational Problem Solving by Richard P. StanleyCall Number: ebook on order; link available soonISBN: 9781470456351Publication Date: 2020-08-06This book features mathematical problems and results that would be of interest to all mathematicians, but especially undergraduates (and even high school students) who participate in mathematical competitions such as the International Math Olympiads and Putnam Competition. The format is a dialogue between a professor and eight students in a summer problem solving camp and allows for a conversational approach to the problems as well as some mathematical humor and a few nonmathematical digressions. The problems have been selected for their entertainment value, elegance, trickiness, and unexpectedness, and have a wide range of difficulty, from trivial to horrendous. They range over a wide variety of topics including combinatorics, algebra, probability, geometry, and set theory. Most of the problems have not appeared before in a problem or expository format. A Notes section at the end of the book gives historical information and references.
