The Concept of Number: From Quaternions to Monads and Topological Fields (Mathematics and Its Applications)

Buy
This book consists of lectures that I have given, in Darmstadt since 1974, under various titles, for beginners or students of the third semester.

I have tried to concentrate on those themes concerning numbers, which seem to me to be the most important on essential and historical grounds, and which in my opinion ought to belong to any wide-ranging, general education of every mathematics student. The content of that, so it occurred to me, should be to use the study of the number systems to reveal Mathematics as a visible unity, an aspect that is just what is lost from the vision of third-semester students. In order to open up the subject of interest from all sides, tools of knowledge are used from Analysis, Algebra, Geometry and Topology. Therefore also I have preferred geometrical approaches and renounced generality, if thereby the underlying ideas of a proof became more intuitive (e.g. in Liouville's Theorem on transcendental numbers). After the essential unity of Mathematics, I have emphasised its historical continuity. In that respect, numerous indicators enrich the text, from simple citations of names and dates, to explicit quotations (Hamel, Hamilton, etc.). So also, in order to treat the conjectured earliest Greek concept of real number, as worked out by 0. Becker [4], I have referred without proofs to some facts about Continued Fractions; and I have given a further development in Sections 2E and 3C. I confess gladly, that the working out of this theme, as well as of others, in this text has given me great pleasure.

The Importance of Pi-Interactions in Crystal Engineering: Frontiers in Crystal Engineering
The Importance of Pi-Interactions in Crystal Engineering: Frontiers in Crystal Engineering

Crystal engineers aim to control the way molecules aggregate in the crystalline phase and are therefore concerned with crystal structure prediction, polymorphism, and discovering the relative importance of different types of intermolecular forces and their influence on molecular structure. In order to design crystal structures, knowledge of...

iPhone Location Aware Apps by Example: Beginners Guide
iPhone Location Aware Apps Beginner's Guide is probably the first book from any technical publisher that teaches you to build real world applications (five of them). That's a bold step from PacktPub - by undertaking more lively practical examples, rather than 400 pages of text! The book lays emphasis on location services, due to the...
Singularities of the Minimal Model Program (Cambridge Tracts in Mathematics)
Singularities of the Minimal Model Program (Cambridge Tracts in Mathematics)

This book gives a comprehensive treatment of the singularities that appear in the minimal model program and in the moduli problem for varieties. The study of these singularities and the development of Mori's program have been deeply intertwined. Early work on minimal models relied on detailed study of terminal and canonical singularities...
