The main purpose of this book is to inform the reader about the formal, or axiomatic, development of Euclidean geometry. It follows Euclid's classic text Elements very closely, with an excellent organization of the subject matter, and over 1,000 practice exercises provide the reader with hands-on experience in solving geometrical problems. Providing a historical perspective about the study of plane geometry, this book covers such topics as other geometries, the neutral geometry of the triangle, non-neutral Euclidean geometry, circles and regular polygons, projective geometry, symmetries, inversions, informal topology, graphs, surfaces, and knots and links.

Die großen Fragen behandeln grundlegende Probleme und Konzepte in Wissenschaft und Philosophie, die Forscher und Denker seit jeher umtreiben. Anspruch der ambitionierten Reihe ist es, die Antworten auf diese Fragen zu präsentieren und damit die wichtigsten Gedanken der Menschheit in einzigartigen Übersichten zu bündeln. Im vorliegenden Band Mathematik, der einen Bogen spannt vom Beginn des Zählens und den idealen Platonischen Körpern bis zur Chaostheorie und dem Fermat’schen Theorem, setzt sich Tony Crilly mit jenen 20 Fragen auseinander, die das Herz der Mathematik und unseres Verständnisses der Welt bilden.

From the Preface by K. Chandrasekharan: "The publication of this collection of papers is intended as a service to the mathematical community, as well as a tribute to the genius of CARL LUDWIG SIEGEL. In the wide range of his interests, in his capacity to uncover, to attack, and to subdue problems of great significance and difficulty, in his invention of new concepts and ideas, in his technical prowess, and in the consummate artistry of his presentation, SIEGEL resembles the classical figures of mathematics. In his combination of arithmetical, analytical, algebraical, and geometrical methods of investigation, and in his unerring instinct for the conceptual and structural, as distinct from the merely technical, aspects of any concrete problem, he represents the best type of modern mathematical thought. At once classical and modern, his work has profoundly influenced the mathematical culture of our time... this publication...will no doubt stimulate generations of scholars to come." Volume III collects Siegel ́s papers from 1945 to 1964.

Developed by a panel of distinguished educators and librarians, "The Young Adult Reader's Adviser" recommends an extensive, representative, and useful list of the finest books--modern and classic, hardcover and paperback. Patterned after the Bowker classic, "The Reader's Adviser," this two-volume resource features 17,000 bibliographic entries and over 850 biographical profiles. Each volume of "The Young Adult Reader's Adviser" is divided into two major sections. Volume One is devoted to Literature and Language Arts, and Mathematics and Computer Science. Volume Two features Social Sciences and History, and Sciences and Health. These subject areas are further divided into more than 430 subsections such as Russian Literature; Mass Media; History of Personal Computers; Ethics in Politics; and Immigration, Urbanization, and Civil Rights. Entries include detailed bibliographic information and brief descriptons, when necessary. Books especially suited for readers in grades 6-8 are noted with an asterisk.

Jahrtausendelang war für uns Menschen das eigene Universum so unbegreiflich, dass der Gedanke an andere Welten unvorstellbar war. Erst die moderne Physik mit der Theorie der Multiversen schuf die Voraussetzung, andere, neue Universen zu beschreiben, wie sie nach den Gesetzen der Physik möglich sind. John Barrow zeigt uns die bislang entdeckten Lösungen für Einsteins Universumsgleichung in diesem faszinierenden Buch: rotierende und unberechenbare, sich aufblähende und schrumpfende, heiße und kalte, bucklige und glatte, flache Universen und solche mit einem Loch in der Mitte, Universen voller Leben und Universen, die plötzlich aufhören zu existieren. Eine spektakuläre Reise in die fantastischen Welten der modernen Kosmologie – und an die Grenzen unseres eigenen Vorstellungsvermögens.

Der seltsamste Mensch ist der mit dem Costa-Buchpreis ausgezeichnete Bericht über Paul Dirac, den berühmten Physiker, der manchmal als der englische Einstein bezeichnet wird. Er war einer der führenden Pioniere der großen Revolution in der Wissenschaft des zwanzigsten Jahrhunderts: der Quantenmechanik. Und er war 1933 der jüngste Theoretiker, der den Nobelpreis für Physik erhalten hatte. Dirac war seltsam wortkarg, nahm alles wörtlich und seine gehemmte Art zu kommunizieren und seine mangelnde Empathiefähigkeit wurden legendär. Während seiner erfolgreichsten Schaffensperiode bestanden seine Postkarten ins Elternhaus nur aus Berichten über das Wetter. Auf der Basis zuvor nicht entdeckter Unterlagen aus dem Familienarchiv verbindet Graham Farmelo eine kenntnisreiche Schilderung der wissenschaftlichen Leistungen mit einem einfühlsamen Portrait des Individuums Paul Dirac. Er zeigt einen Menschen, der trotz extremer sozialer Gehemmtheit fähig ist zur Liebe und zu treuer Freundschaft. Der seltsamste Mensch ist eine außerordentliche menschlich berührende Story ebenso wie ein fesselnder Bericht über eine der aufregendsten Zeiten der Wissenschaftsgeschichte.
