Great Feuds in Mathematics: Ten of the Liveliest Disputes EverMathematical disputes offer indisputable proof that great mathematical minds are calculating in more ways than one. Fueled by greed, jealousy, ambition, and ego, they have plots worthy of a soap opera, pitting brother against brother, father against son, and student against mentor.
In the sixteenth century, Cardano and Tartaglia battled...   Partial Differential Equations 2: Functional Analytic Methods (Universitext)This comprehensive twovolume textbook presents the whole area of Partial Differential Equations  of the elliptic, parabolic, and hyperbolic type  in two and several variables. Special emphasis is put on the connection of PDEs and complex variable methods.
In this second volume the following topics are treated: Solvability of...   The Philosophy of Mathematical PracticeContemporary philosophy of mathematics offers us an embarrassment of riches. Among the major areas of work one could list developments of the classical foundational programs, analytic approaches to epistemology and ontology of mathematics, and developments at the intersection of history and philosophy of mathematics. But anyone familiar with...
