The Mathematics of Secrets: Cryptography from Caesar Ciphers to Digital Encryption<br>Joshua Holden The Mathematics of Secrets:
Cryptography from Caesar Ciphers to Digital Encryption
Joshua Holden

"Suitable for anyone with a basic understanding of high school math, The Mathematics of Secrets presents the theoretical principles of cryptography, from Julius Caesar's primitive cipher to the intricacies of the modern digital signature. This terrific book is a testament to the almost supernatural power of mathematics."--Paul J. Nahin, author of In Praise of Simple Physics

Making and Breaking Mathematical Sense: Histories and Philosophies of Mathematical Practice<br>Roi Wagner Making and Breaking Mathematical Sense:
Histories and Philosophies of Mathematical Practice
Roi Wagner

"Mathematicians and philosophers should find this excellent book accessible and stimulating. As a mathematician, I was pleasantly surprised that some of Deleuze's philosophy could be made not just comprehensible but compelling. Among the new mathematical material, the book’s account of Bombelli and the cubic equation was particularly impressive. And the story of the emergence of negative and imaginary numbers has never been told with such subtlety and clarity."--John Stillwell, University of San Francisco

All the Tools You Need to Understand Proofs
Raffi Grinberg

"This book is a great resource that every real analysis student should have. Grinberg writes like a professor would speak to a student during office hours: free of jargon, with a sense of humor, yet still in an authoritative and informative manner."--Oscar E. Fernandez, author of Everyday Calculus: Discovering the Hidden Math All around Us

Enlightening Symbols: A Short History of Mathematical Notation and Its Hidden Powers<br>Joseph Mazur Enlightening Symbols:
A Short History of Mathematical Notation and Its Hidden Powers
Joseph Mazur

"[A] fascinating narrative. . . . This is a nuanced, intelligently framed chronicle packed with nuggets--such as the fact that Hindus, not Arabs, introduced Arabic numerals. In a word: enlightening."--George Szpiro, Nature

The Joy of SET: The Many Mathematical Dimensions of a Seemingly Simple Card Game<br>Liz McMahon, Gary Gordon, Hannah Gordon & Rebecca Gordon The Joy of SET:
The Many Mathematical Dimensions of a Seemingly Simple Card Game
Liz McMahon, Gary Gordon, Hannah Gordon & Rebecca Gordon

"The Joy of SET uses a popular and very simple card game as a springboard for a whirlwind tour through probability, combinatorics, finite geometries, and experimental mathematics. Whether or not you play SET, you’ll find a lot of great math to play with in this book."--Jordan Ellenberg, author of How Not to Be Wrong: The Power of Mathematical Thinking

Sourcebook in the Mathematics of Medieval Europe and North Africa<br>Edited by Victor J. Katz, Menso Folkerts, Barnabas Hughes, Roi Wagner & J. Lennart Berggren Sourcebook in the Mathematics of Medieval Europe and North Africa
Edited by Victor J. Katz, Menso Folkerts, Barnabas Hughes, Roi Wagner & J. Lennart Berggren

"There is no denying that great mathematical progress was made in Europe in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. The primary sources in this book show how mathematics developed in medieval Europe to the stage where such progress became possible. The editors do a good job of explaining mathematical ideas of the time to modern readers while still leaving the extracts to speak for themselves."--John Hannah, University of Canterbury, New Zealand

Zombies and Calculus<br>Colin Adams Zombies and Calculus
Colin Adams

"Romance! Danger! Calculus! Zombies! Adams (How to Ace Calculus), professor of mathematics at Williams College and humor columnist for The Mathematical Intelligencer, takes readers on an apocalyptic and educational adventure that's also a Spielbergian sci-fi thriller. . . . Adams keeps the in-story math both appropriate and accessible, saving in-depth discussion for appendices at the end. Calculus fans looking for 'real-world' applications woven into a nail-biter of a story, chock-full of narrow escapes, betrayals, some plucky kids, the family dog, and even a romantic subplot, will delight in this fun, and funny pop-math book."--Publishers Weekly starred review
