Dover is the home of such world-class theorists as Paul J. Cohen, Alfred Tarski, Gary Chartrand, Hermann Weyl, and Shlomo Sternberg, as well as multiple works by C. R. Wylie in geometry. And Stanley J. Farlow's Partial Differential Equations for Scientists and Engineers remains one of the most widely used textbooks we have ever published.
|Calculus: An Intuitive and Physical Approach (Second Edition) |
by Morris Kline
Application-oriented introduction relates the subject as closely as possible to science with explorations of the derivative; differentiation and integration of the powers of x; theorems on differentiation, antidifferentiation; the chain rule; trigonometric functions; more. Examples. 1967 edition.
|Set Theory and the Continuum Hypothesis |
by Paul J. Cohen
This exploration of a notorious mathematical problem is the work of the man who discovered the solution. The award-winning author employs intuitive explanations and detailed proofs in this self-contained treatment. 1966 edition. Copyright renewed 1994.
|The Concept of a Riemann Surface |
by Hermann Weyl, Gerald R. MacLane
This classic on the general history of functions combines function theory and geometry, forming the basis of the modern approach to analysis, geometry, and topology. 1955 edition.
|Introduction to Knot Theory |
by Richard H. Crowell, Ralph H. Fox
Appropriate for advanced undergraduates and graduate students, this text by two renowned mathematicians was hailed by the Bulletin of the American Mathematical Society as "a very welcome addition to the mathematical literature." 1963 edition.
|Ordinary Differential Equations |
by Morris Tenenbaum, Harry Pollard
Skillfully organized introductory text examines origin of differential equations, then defines basic terms and outlines the general solution of a differential equation. Explores integrating factors; dilution and accretion problems; Laplace Transforms; Newton's Interpolation Formulas, more.
|The Thirteen Books of the Elements, Vol. 1 |
Volume 1 of 3-volume set containing complete English text of all 13 books of the Elements plus critical analysis of each definition, postulate, and proposition. Vol. 1 includes Introduction, Books I and II: Triangles, rectangles.
|Logic for Mathematicians |
by J. Barkley Rosser
Examination of essential topics and theorems assumes no background in logic. "Undoubtedly a major addition to the literature of mathematical logic." — Bulletin of the American Mathematical Society. 1978 edition.
