The Irrationals: A Story of the Numbers You Can't Count On

The traditional Greeks stumbled on them, however it wasn't till the 19th century that irrational numbers have been thoroughly understood and conscientiously outlined, or even at the present time now not all their mysteries were published. within the Irrationals, the 1st well known and entire e-book at the topic, Julian Havil tells the tale of irrational numbers and the mathematicians who've tackled their demanding situations, from antiquity to the twenty-first century.

In mathematical circles. Quadrants I, II (MAA 2003)

For a few years, famed arithmetic historian and grasp instructor Howard Eves accrued tales and anecdotes approximately arithmetic and mathematicians, accumulating them jointly in six Mathematical Circles books. millions of academics of arithmetic have learn those tales and anecdotes for his or her personal amusement and used them within the lecture room - so as to add leisure, to introduce a human point, to motivate the scholar, and to forge a few hyperlinks of cultural historical past.

Mathematics of Digital Images: Creation, Compression, Restoration, Recognition

This significant revision of the author's well known ebook nonetheless specializes in foundations and proofs, yet now shows a shift clear of Topology to chance and knowledge conception (with Shannon's resource and channel encoding theorems) that are used all through. 3 important parts for the electronic revolution are tackled (compression, recovery and recognition), setting up not just what's precise, yet why, to facilitate schooling and study.

Mathe ist doof !? Weshalb ganz vernünftige Menschen manchmal an Mathematik verzweifeln

Viele Menschen haben den Seufzer "Mathe ist doof! " schon ausgestoßen. Sind denn alle diese Leute dumm oder "mathematisch unbegabt"? Wie kaum ein anderes Fach spaltet Mathematik die Geister: Mathematik ist schön, ästhetisch, wunderbar logisch und überaus nützlich - sagen die einen. Die anderen empfinden Mathematik als eine dröge Quälerei mit abstrakten Symbolen und undurchsichtigen Formeln, die guy irgendwie in der Schule durchstehen muss - und dann vergessen kann.

Marce1 Brelot [16], after his penetrating study of these four papers, was convinced that the theorems of continuation of [X] should lead to further genera1izations and expressions of an harmonie function u in terms of the discontinuities of u and its derivatives at the exceptiona1 sets. As a matter of fact, Bre10t fee1s that Christoffe1 was until now almost unknown to the experts ofpotential theory. His results were rather important for his time and even today they remain fresh and stimu1ating.
