Lectures on Analytic and Projective Geometry
Based on a historic approach taken by instructors at MIT, this text is geared toward junior and senior undergraduate courses in analytic and projective geometry. Starting with concepts concerning points on a line and lines through a point, it proceeds to the geometry of plane and space, leading up to conics and quadrics developed within the context of metrical, affine, and projective$9.95
A Concise History of Mathematics
This compact, well-written history — first published in 1948, and now in its fourth revised edition — describes the main trends in the development of all fields of mathematics from the first available records to the middle of the 20th century. Students, researchers, historians, specialists — in short, everyone with an interest in mathematics — will find it engrossing and stimulating.Beginning$12.99
Lectures on Classical Differential Geometry: Second Edition
Excellent brief introduction presents fundamental theory of curves and surfaces and applies them to a number of examples. Topics include curves, theory of surfaces, fundamental equations, geometry on a surface, envelopes, conformal mapping, minimal surfaces, more. Well-illustrated, with abundant problems and solutions. Bibliography.$15.99
100 Great Problems of Elementary Mathematics
Problems that beset Archimedes, Newton, Euler, Cauchy, Gauss, Monge and other greats, ready to challenge today's would-be problem solvers. Among them: How is a sundial constructed?

Changing Images in Mathematics
From the French Revolution to the New Millennium
Routledge Studies in the History of Science, Technology and Medicine
This book focuses on some of the major developments in the history of contemporary (19th and 20th century) mathematics as seen in the broader context of the development of science and culture. Avoiding technicalities, it displays the breadth of contrasting images of mathematics favoured by different countries, schools and historical movements, showing how the conception and practice of mathematics$14.99
Symmetry: An Introduction to Group Theory and Its Applications
This well-organized volume develops the elementary ideas of both group theory and representation theory in a progressive and thorough fashion. Designed to allow students to focus on any of the main fields of application, it is geared toward advanced undergraduate and graduate physics and chemistry students. 1963 edition. Appendices.$40.79
Geometry from a Differentiable Viewpoint
The development of geometry from Euclid to Euler to Lobachevsky, Bolyai, Gauss and Riemann is a story that is often broken into parts – axiomatic geometry, non-Euclidean geometry and differential geometry. This poses a problem for undergraduates: Which part is geometry? What is the big picture to which these parts belong? In this introduction to differential geometry, the parts are united with all$11.99
The Story of Geometry from Parallel Lines to Hyperspace
Through Euclid's Window Leonard Mlodinow brilliantly and delightfully leads us on a journey through five revolutions in geometry, from the Greek concept of parallel lines to the latest notions of hyperspace. Here is an altogether new, refreshing, alternative history of math revealing how simple questions anyone might ask about space -- in the living room or in some other galaxy -- have been the
