Polyhedron Models by Magnus J. Wenninger

By Magnus J. Wenninger

types of the normal and semi-regular polyhedral solids have interested humans for hundreds of years. The Greeks knew the easiest of them. seeing that then the diversity of figures has grown; seventy five are recognized at the present time and are referred to as, extra in general, 'uniform' polyhedra. the writer describes easily and thoroughly tips on how to make versions of all of the identified uniform polyhedra and a few of the stellated types. totally illustrated with drawings and images, this is often the 1st functional consultant to creating those complex and lovely solids.

Finsler Geometry: An Approach via Randers Spaces

"Finsler Geometry: An strategy through Randers areas" solely offers with a distinct 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 common Relativity idea and feature been utilized in lots of components of the traditional sciences.

Mathematical Concepts

The most purpose of this ebook is to explain and improve the conceptual, structural and summary deliberating arithmetic. particular mathematical buildings are used to demonstrate the conceptual technique; supplying a deeper perception into mutual relationships and summary universal positive factors. those rules are rigorously stimulated, defined and illustrated by way of examples in order that some of the extra technical proofs may be passed over.

Modern General Topology (Bibliotheca Mathematica)

Bibliotheca Mathematica: a sequence of Monographs on natural and utilized arithmetic, quantity VII: smooth basic Topology makes a speciality of the approaches, operations, ideas, and ways hired in natural and utilized arithmetic, together with areas, cardinal and ordinal numbers, and mappings. The ebook first elaborates on set, cardinal and ordinal numbers, easy recommendations in topological areas, and numerous topological areas.

Fractal Functions, Fractal Surfaces, and Wavelets

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