Biomolecular Feedback Systems Domitilla Del Vecchio & Richard M. Murray "This is an excellent compendium of the most important techniques and results in the application of feedback and control to biomolecular systems. Biomolecular Feedback Systems is very timely, and a mustread for students and researchers."Ernesto Estrada, University of Strathclyde  
How to Solve It: A New Aspect of Mathematical Method G. Polya With a foreword by John Conway "Every prospective teacher should read it. In particular, graduate students will find it invaluable. The traditional mathematics professor who reads a paper before one of the Mathematical Societies might also learn something from the book: 'He writes a, he says b, he means c; but it should be d.' "E. T. Bell, Mathematical Monthly  
Books released during the week of September 29, 2014  
Elliptic Tales: Curves, Counting, and Number Theory Avner Ash & Robert Gross "The authors present their discussion in an informal, sometimes playful manner and with detail that will appeal to an audience with a basic understanding of calculus. This book will captivate math enthusiasts as well as readers curious about an intriguing and still unanswered question."Margaret Dominy, Library Journal

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  
Multiparameter Singular Integrals. (AM189) Brian Street This book develops a new theory of multiparameter singular integrals associated with CarnotCarathéodory balls. . . .This is one of the first general theories of multiparameter singular integrals that goes beyond the product theory of singular integrals and their analogs. Multiparameter Singular Integrals will interest graduate students and researchers working in singular integrals and related fields.
