Complex Ball Quotients and Line Arrangements in the Projective Plane<br>Paula Tretkoff<br>With an appendix by Hans-Christoph Im Hof 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<br>Annette Imhausen 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<br>Ehud Hrushovski & François Loeser 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 p-adic Simpson Correspondence<br>Ahmed Abbes, Michel Gros & Takeshi Tsuji The p-adic Simpson Correspondence
Ahmed Abbes, Michel Gros & Takeshi Tsuji

The p-adic Simpson correspondence, recently initiated by Gerd Faltings, aims at describing all p-adic representations of the fundamental group of a proper smooth variety over a p-adic field in terms of linear algebra—namely Higgs bundles. This book undertakes a systematic development of the theory following two new approaches, one by Ahmed Abbes and Michel Gros, the other by Takeshi Tsuji. The authors mainly focus on generalized representations of the fundamental group that are p-adically close to the trivial representation.

The Best Writing on Mathematics 2015<br>Edited by Mircea Pitici The Best Writing on Mathematics 2015
Edited by Mircea Pitici

"The Best Writing on Mathematics does not shy away from mathematics, and that is why it shines. Pitici has done a wonderful job curating articles that form a cohesive . . . volume for readers seeking more than what popular mathematics books have to offer. Overall, this is a great book for the mathematically-experienced reader seeking to connect to mathematics outside of the world of textbooks and tests."--Douglas Whitaker, Key Reporter
Paperback | 2015 | $24.95 / £16.95

L.A. Math: Romance, Crime, and Mathematics in the City of Angels<br>James D. Stein L.A. Math:
Romance, Crime, and Mathematics in the City of Angels
James D. Stein

"I’ve always wanted to find a book that combines genuinely readable short stories with insights into math or science--in L.A. Math, James Stein pulls this off remarkably well. It’s as if Ellery Queen, with the help of P. G. Wodehouse, spiced up a collection of detective tales with a generous handful of practical mathematics."--Brian Clegg, author of A Brief History of Infinity and Dice World

Leonhard Euler: Mathematical Genius in the Enlightenment<br>Ronald S. Calinger 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
Hardcover | 2015 | $55.00 / £37.95
