Complex Ball Quotients and Line Arrangements in the Projective Plane Paula Tretkoff With an appendix by Hans-Christoph Im Hof This book introduces the theory of complex surfaces through a comprehensive look at finite covers of the projective plane branched along line arrangements. Paula Tretkoff emphasizes those finite covers that are free quotients of the complex two-dimensional ball. Tretkoff also includes background on the classical Gauss hypergeometric function of one variable, and a chapter on the Appell two-variable F1 hypergeometric function. | |

Mathematics in Ancient Egypt: A Contextual History Annette Imhausen "Imhausen is one of the leading contemporary researchers in the mathematics of ancient Egypt and her book, which spans the whole of Egyptian mathematics from the early dynastic periods to the Greco-Roman era, will be the quintessential scholarly work in the field."--Amy Shell-Gellasch, Montgomery College | |

Non-Archimedean Tame Topology and Stably Dominated Types Ehud Hrushovski & François Loeser This book lays down model-theoretic foundations for non-archimedean geometry. The methods combine o-minimality and stability theory. Definable types play a central role, serving first to define the notion of a point and then properties such as definable compactness. | |

The Mathematics of Various Entertaining Subjects: Research in Recreational Math Edited by Jennifer Beineke & Jason Rosenhouse With a foreword by Raymond Smullyan "This entertaining yet rigorous book of recreational mathematical masterpieces presents centuries-old puzzles and new inventions that illustrate the continuing allure of recreational mathematics. The contributions are up-to-date, well illustrated, and startle with unexpected connections. Lay readers and connoisseurs will find imaginative and instructive delights."--Mircea Pitici, editor of | |

Mathematical Knowledge and the Interplay of Practices José Ferreirós "Ferreirós presents a new fusion of philosophical and mathematical ideas that is thought provoking and original. This book is obviously the product of great and conscientious scholarship."--John Stillwell, University of San Francisco | |

Leonhard Euler: Mathematical Genius in the Enlightenment Ronald S. Calinger "This is the first real biography of Leonhard Euler, and I don’t think it’s an exaggeration to say that it is the most important book about Euler to appear in any western European language in the past century. The scholarship is absolutely first rate and is based largely on original sources, a monumental feat. Many of the details are new, but so is the grand synthesis that puts them together in one narrative. I learned something new from almost every page."--Dominic Klyve, Central Washington University |
