The Seduction of Curves: The Lines of Beauty That Connect Mathematics, Art, and the Nude<br/>Allan McRobie<br/>With photography by Helena Weightman 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 Seduction of Curves is a sinuous delight."--Steven Strogatz, author of The Joy of x: A Guided Tour of Math, from One to Infinity

Office Hours with a Geometric Group Theorist<br>Edited by Matt Clay & Dan Margalit 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

Asymptotic Differential Algebra and Model Theory of Transseries<br>Matthias Aschenbrenner, Lou van den Dries & Joris van der Hoeven 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. Next, H-fields are singled out among ordered valued differential fields to provide an algebraic setting for the common properties of Hardy fields and the differential field of transseries.

The Fascinating World of Graph Theory<br>Arthur Benjamin, Gary Chartrand & Ping Zhang The Fascinating World of Graph Theory
Arthur Benjamin, Gary Chartrand & Ping Zhang

"The Fascinating World of Graph Theory shows its pedagogic value. Traditional courseware develops subject matter from the bottom on up, going from basic definitions to the more complex. [This book] is different, not starting with the simplest structures or algorithms but with interesting problems to be solved, puzzles that use graphs and networks. . . . [It is] readable and ‘student-friendly'--more so than the typical math textbook."--New York Journal of Books
