In Praise of Simple Physics: The Science and Mathematics behind Everyday Questions Paul J. Nahin "Nahin's writing style, as in previous books, is clear, conversational, humorous and chatty. . . . [A]nd the discussions in the book are careful and appropriately rigorous."-- | |

The Seduction of Curves: The Lines of Beauty That Connect Mathematics, Art, and the Nude Allan McRobie With photography by Helena Weightma "This is what a book should be: startling, bold, and beautiful, idiosyncratic and yet universal. Only Allan McRobie could have written it. But all of us can enjoy it. He shows us how to look at ourselves, our bodies, and our world in a new way. After just a few minutes you'll feel like you're seeing everything for the first time. Brilliantly conceived, poetically written, and utterly original, | |

The Mathematics of Various Entertaining Subjects: Research in Games, Graphs, Counting, and Complexity, Volume 2 Edited by Jennifer Beineke & Jason Rosenhouse With a foreword by Ron Graham "Every essay in this collection can be appreciated by math enthusiasts of all levels, from high school students to research mathematicians. With work from leading mathematicians such as John Conway, Richard Guy, Bob Bosch, Peter Winkler, Tanya Khovanova, and Erik Demaine, what's not to love?"--Arthur Benjamin, author of | |

The Great Formal Machinery Works: Theories of Deduction and Computation at the Origins of the Digital Age Jan von Plato "Von Plato's book is a lively and provocative history of mathematical logic, centered on the game-changing discoveries of Gödel, Turing, and Gentzen. Every mathematician interested in foundations will enjoy this book, and will likely lose some misconceptions as well as gain new insights."--John Stillwell, author of Elements of Mathematics: From Euclid to Gödel | |

Office Hours with a Geometric Group Theorist Edited by Matt Clay & Dan Margalit "This book is a gentle introduction to the basics, and some of the gems, of geometric group theory. It gives a good flavor for many aspects of the field, the writing is clear and interesting, and there is an emphasis on examples. This is a great place to send students, both undergraduate and graduate, for a first look at geometric group theory."--Benson Farb, University of Chicago | |

Noncooperative Game Theory: An Introduction for Engineers and Computer Scientists João P. Hespanha "João Hespanha's standing in the field is stellar and students will appreciate his textbook in courses. This well-written book is clear and focused, and organized around suitable modules and lectures. It contains compelling theoretical and computational exercises."--Magnus Egerstedt, coauthor of | |

Asymptotic Differential Algebra and Model Theory of Transseries Matthias Aschenbrenner, Lou van den Dries & Joris van der Hoeven This self-contained book validates the intuition that the differential field of transseries is a universal domain for asymptotic differential algebra. It does so by establishing in the realm of transseries a complete elimination theory for systems of algebraic differential equations with asymptotic side conditions. Beginning with background chapters on valuations and differential algebra, the book goes on to develop the basic theory of valued differential fields, including a notion of differential-henselianity.
