Elements of Mathematics: 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 | |

Baseball's All-Time Best Sluggers: Adjusted Batting Performance from Strikeouts to Home Runs Michael J. Schell "Baseball fans, ever fascinated with statistics, should enjoy rifling through this information-packed work."-- | |

The Calculus of Selfishness Karl Sigmund "With collaborators from Vienna, Sigmund has pioneered the development of evolutionary game dynamics. This thought-provoking book is a distillation of his many influential contributions to the field. It is a showcase of clever models and elegant mathematics, replete with sometimes counterintuitive insights."-- | |

Complexities: Women in Mathematics Edited by Bettye Anne Case & Anne M. Leggett "A definitive work, very carefully written, | |

Fourier Restriction for Hypersurfaces in Three Dimensions and Newton Polyhedra Isroil A. Ikromov & Detlef Müller Fourier restriction plays an important role in several fields, in particular in real and harmonic analysis, number theory, and PDEs. This book will interest graduate students and researchers working in such fields. | |

Game Theory in Action: 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 | |

An Imaginary Tale: The Story of √-1 Paul J. Nahin With a new preface by the author "A book-length hymn of praise to the square root of minus one."--Brian Rotman, | |

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 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 |
