Trigonometric Delights (New in Paperback)
Trigonometry has always been an underappreciated branch of mathematics. It has a reputation as a dry and difficult subject, a glorified form of geometry complicated by tedious computation. In this book, Eli Maor draws on his remarkable talents as a guide to the world of numbers to dispel that view. Rejecting the usual arid descriptions of sine, cosine, and their trigonometric relatives, he bringsExploring Polyhedra in Nature, Art, and the Geometrical Imagination
This second edition is based off of the very popular Shaping Space: A Polyhedral Approach, first published twenty years ago. The book is expanded and updated to include new developments, including the revolutions in visualization and model-making that the computer has wrought. Shaping Space is an exuberant, richly-illustrated, interdisciplinary guide to three-dimensional forms, focusing on theA New Approach to Differential Geometry using Clifford's Geometric Algebra
Differential geometry is the study of the curvature and calculus of curves and surfaces. A New Approach to Differential Geometry using Clifford's Geometric Algebra simplifies the discussion to an accessible level of differential geometry by introducing Clifford algebra. This presentation is relevant because Clifford algebra is an effective tool for dealing with the rotations intrinsic to the studySources in the Development of Mathematics
Series and Products from the Fifteenth to the Twenty-first Century
The discovery of infinite products by Wallis and infinite series by Newton marked the beginning of the modern mathematical era. It allowed Newton to solve the problem of finding areas under curves defined by algebraic equations, an achievement beyond the scope of the earlier methods of Torricelli, Fermat and Pascal. While Newton and his contemporaries, including Leibniz and the Bernoullis,The Search for Physics. Infinity.
Well known that mathematics and physics have problems in their development. Only one mathematician, Morris Kline, discovered illogicality of development of mathematics. Despite this, he attempted to justify illogicality in math by fruitfulness of usage of mathematics in physics, instead to stay problem about illogical development of physics.Here is discussing inconsistencies of undefined notionsAn Introduction to Mathematics (Illustrated - Full Mathematical Notation)
THE ABSTRACT NATURE OF MATHEMATICS The study of mathematics is apt to commence in disappointment. The important applications of the science, the theoretical interest of its ideas, and the logical rigor of its methods, all generate the expectation of a speedy introduction to processes of interest. We are told that by its aid the stars are weighed and the billions of molecules in a drop of water
