John Napier: Life, Logarithms, and Legacy<br>Julian Havil John Napier:
Life, Logarithms, and Legacy
Julian Havil

“Havil is an enthusiastic and engaging writer—he brings to life John Napier’s original work and gives an account of his mathematical ideas. Readers will gain an appreciation for Napier’s brilliance and for an era when scientific computation was still in its infancy. It’s about time someone wrote a book on this subject for a general audience.”—Glen Van Brummelen, author of Heavenly Mathematics

Multi-parameter Singular Integrals. (AM-189)<br>Brian Street Multi-parameter Singular Integrals. (AM-189)
Brian Street

This book develops a new theory of multi-parameter singular integrals associated with Carnot-Carathéodory balls. . . .This is one of the first general theories of multi-parameter singular integrals that goes beyond the product theory of singular integrals and their analogs. Multi-parameter Singular Integrals will interest graduate students and researchers working in singular integrals and related fields.

The Irrationals: A Story of the Numbers You Can't Count On<br>Julian Havil The Irrationals:
A Story of the Numbers You Can't Count On
Julian Havil

"The insides of this book are as clever and compelling as the subtitle on the cover. Havil, a retired former master at Winchester College in England, where he taught math for decades, takes readers on a history of irrational numbers--numbers, like v2 or p, whose decimal expansion 'is neither finite nor recurring.' We start in ancient Greece with Pythagoras, whose thinking most likely helped to set the path toward the discovery of irrational numbers, and continue to the present day, pausing to ponder such questions as, 'Is the decimal expansion of an irrational number random?'"--Anna Kuchment, Scientific American

Mythematics: Solving the Twelve Labors of Hercules<br>Michael Huber Mythematics:
Solving the Twelve Labors of Hercules
Michael Huber

"The figures and diagrams are well chosen, the mathematics is presented attractively, the pace is appropriate. Unobtrusively, the general level of mathematical sophistication tends to rise as the book progresses. This book offers ideas to teachers seeking topics on which to pin some abstract maths, and could encourage students to think imaginatively about their subject, and where it might arise in unexpected circumstances."--John Haigh, London Mathematical Society Newsletter

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

"If you're dying to read a novel treatment of calculus, then you should run (don't walk!) to buy Zombies and Calculus by Colin Adams. You'll see calculus come alive in a way that could save your life someday."--Arthur Benjamin, Harvey Mudd College

Hidden Markov Processes: Theory and Applications to Biology<br>M. Vidyasagar Hidden Markov Processes:
Theory and Applications to Biology
M. Vidyasagar

"This book provides a terrific introduction to an important and widely studied field--Markov processes (including hidden Markov processes)--with a particular view toward applications to problems in biology. With a wonderful balance of rigor, intuition, and choice of topics, the book gives a unique treatment of the subject for those interested in both fundamental theory and important applications."--Sanjeev Kulkarni, Princeton University

Topics in Quaternion Linear Algebra<br>Leiba Rodman Topics in Quaternion Linear Algebra
Leiba Rodman

“This is a very serious treatise by an author who is a powerful researcher and a clear expositor. I know of no other book that treats both the basic theory and advanced material as carefully and as comprehensively as this one. Topics in Quaternion Linear Algebra is a singular contribution of considerable value.”—Douglas R. Farenick, author of Algebras of Linear Transformations
