Bridge to Abstract Mathematics: Mathematical Proof and Structures Intended to bridge the gap between the standard calculus sequence and more abstract upper-division mathematics courses, this successful text provides a firm foundation in sets, logic, and mathematical proof methods. The Second Edition includes a smoother transition from the concepts of logic to actual use of these concepts in proving theorems;... Intelligence: The Eye, the Brain, and the Computer This book treats the question of how far we have come in understanding intelligence and in duplicating it mechanically. The major facets of intelligence--reasoning, vision, language and learning are discussed as an approach to contrasting biological intelligence with current computer realizations.... Taxicab Geometry: An Adventure in Non-Euclidean Geometry
Develops a simple non-Euclidean geometry and explores some of its practical applications through graphs, research problems, and exercises. Includes selected answers.
This book has a triple purpose: to develop a very simple, concrete non-Euclidean geometry; to explore a few of its many real-world applications; to pose some of the...
Theory of Linear Operations (North-Holland Mathematical Library) The theory of operators, created by V. Volterra, has as its object the study of functions defined on infinite-dimensional spaces. This theory has penetrated several highly important areas of mathematics in an essential way: suffice it to recall that the theory of integral equations and the calculus of variations are included as special cases within... Statistical Mechanics Unlike most other texts on the subject, this clear, concise introduction to the theory of microscopic bodies treats the modern theory of critical phenomena. Provides up-to-date coverage of recent major advances, including a self-contained description of thermodynamics and the classical kinetic theory of gases, interesting applications such as...
