Advanced Euclidean Geometry (Dover Books on Mathematics) by Roger A. Johnson

By Roger A. Johnson

For decades, this trouble-free treatise on complicated Euclidean geometry has been the normal textbook during this region of classical arithmetic; no different ebook has lined the topic relatively to boot. It explores the geometry of the triangle and the circle, targeting extensions of Euclidean conception, and reading intimately many rather fresh theorems. a number of hundred theorems and corollaries are formulated and proved thoroughly; a number of others stay unproved, for use by means of scholars as exercises.
The writer makes liberal use of round inversion, the idea of pole and polar, and lots of different glossy and robust geometrical instruments during the e-book. particularly, the strategy of "directed angles" bargains not just a strong approach to facts but additionally furnishes the shortest and such a lot dependent type of assertion for numerous universal theorems. This obtainable textual content calls for not more vast instruction than highschool geometry and trigonometry.

Finsler Geometry: An Approach via Randers Spaces

"Finsler Geometry: An process through Randers areas" solely bargains with a unique classification of Finsler metrics -- Randers metrics, that are outlined because the sum of a Riemannian metric and a 1-form. Randers metrics derive from the learn on normal Relativity idea and feature been utilized in lots of parts of the normal sciences.

Mathematical Concepts

The most purpose of this e-book is to explain and advance the conceptual, structural and summary considering arithmetic. particular mathematical constructions are used to demonstrate the conceptual method; delivering a deeper perception into mutual relationships and summary universal positive factors. those principles are conscientiously encouraged, defined and illustrated through examples in order that a few of the extra technical proofs should be passed over.

Modern General Topology (Bibliotheca Mathematica)

Bibliotheca Mathematica: a chain of Monographs on natural and utilized arithmetic, quantity VII: sleek common Topology makes a speciality of the procedures, operations, rules, and methods hired in natural and utilized arithmetic, together with areas, cardinal and ordinal numbers, and mappings. The booklet first elaborates on set, cardinal and ordinal numbers, simple ideas in topological areas, and numerous topological areas.

Fractal Functions, Fractal Surfaces, and Wavelets

Fractal services, Fractal Surfaces, and Wavelets, moment variation, is the 1st systematic exposition of the speculation of neighborhood iterated functionality platforms, neighborhood fractal features and fractal surfaces, and their connections to wavelets and wavelet units. The booklet is predicated on Massopust’s paintings on and contributions to the idea of fractal interpolation, and the writer makes use of a few tools—including research, topology, algebra, and likelihood theory—to introduce readers to this intriguing topic.
