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

"Romance! Danger! Calculus! Zombies! Adams (How to Ace Calculus), professor of mathematics at Williams College and humor columnist for The Mathematical Intelligencer, takes readers on an apocalyptic and educational adventure that's also a Spielbergian sci-fi thriller. . . . Adams keeps the in-story math both appropriate and accessible, saving in-depth discussion for appendices at the end. Calculus fans looking for 'real-world' applications woven into a nail-biter of a story, chock-full of narrow escapes, betrayals, some plucky kids, the family dog, and even a romantic subplot, will delight in this fun, and funny pop-math book."--Publishers Weekly starred review

From Euclid to Gödel
John Stillwell

"The coherence of mathematics is on display in this masterful, beautifully written synthesis. With probing questions, lucid explanations, and fascinating examples and stories, John Stillwell reveals where the seemingly separate branches of math came from, how they intertwine, and why the hidden unifier is the deepest idea of all: infinity."--Steven Strogatz, Cornell University and author of The Joy of x

From One Plus One to Modern Number Theory
Avner Ash & Robert Gross

"In Summing It Up, Ash and Gross, with their customary charm and clarity, build an impressive tower from the most basic mathematical story imaginable. They start by adding up finite sequences and whole numbers before journeying to the upper reaches of contemporary developments in number theory."--Jordan Ellenberg, author of How Not to Be Wrong: The Power of Mathematical Thinking

An Introduction to Classical and Evolutionary Models
Stephen Schecter & Herbert Gintis

"Cowritten by a mathematician and an economist, this book provides a fascinating journey into game theory. Substantial parts are devoted to evolutionary game theory, which is a real treat. The approach to the subject is so original, and the tone is so down-to-earth, that I felt like becoming a student and learning everything all over again."--Natalia Komarova, University of California, Irvine
