The Universe could be a Mystery,
But it is No Secret

Michael Schneider leads us on a incredible, lavishly illustrated trip alongside the numbers one via ten to discover the mathematical ideas made obvious in flora, shells, crystals, vegetation, and the human physique, expressed within the symbolic language of people sayings and fairy stories, fantasy and faith, artwork and structure. this can be a new view of arithmetic, now not the single we realized in class yet a finished consultant to the styles that recur during the universe and underlie human affairs. A Beginner's advisor to developing, the Universe indicates you:

  • Why cans, pizza, and manhole covers are round.

  • Why one and were not thought of numbers through the traditional Greeks.

  • Why squares appear so frequently in goddess artwork and board games.

  • What estate makes the spiral the main common form in nature, from embryos and hair curls to hurricanes and galaxies.

  • How the human physique stocks the layout of a bean plant and the sun process.

  • How a snowflake is like Stonehenge, and a beehive like a calendar.

  • How our ten hands carry the secrets and techniques of either a lobster and a cathedral.

  • And even more.

Nevanlinna’s Theory of Value Distribution: The Second Main Theorem and its Error Terms (Springer Monographs in Mathematics)

This monograph serves as a self-contained creation to Nevanlinna's idea of worth distribution in addition to a worthy reference for examine experts. Authors current, for the 1st time in booklet shape, the main glossy and subtle types of the second one major Theorem with exact blunders phrases, in either the geometric and logarithmic by-product established ways.

Multiple-Base Number System: Theory and Applications (Circuits and Electrical Engineering)

Desktop mathematics has develop into so essentially embedded into electronic layout that many engineers are blind to the numerous examine advances within the quarter. for that reason, they're wasting out on rising possibilities to optimize its use in precise functions and applied sciences. in lots of circumstances, simply to be had common mathematics would possibly not unavoidably be the best implementation technique.

Applied Proof Theory: Proof Interpretations and their Use in Mathematics (Springer Monographs in Mathematics)

This can be the 1st therapy in e-book structure of proof-theoretic ameliorations - often called evidence interpretations - that makes a speciality of purposes to bland arithmetic. It covers either the mandatory logical equipment at the back of the facts interpretations which are utilized in fresh functions in addition to – through prolonged case stories – conducting a few of these functions in complete element.

Closing the Gap: The Quest to Understand Prime Numbers

In 2013, a bit recognized mathematician in his past due 50s surprised the mathematical group with a step forward on an age-old challenge approximately best numbers. considering the fact that then, there was extra dramatic development at the challenge, due to the efforts of a large-scale on-line collaborative attempt of a kind that will were unthinkable in arithmetic a few a long time in the past, and the perception and creativity of a tender mathematician at first of his profession.
