By George G. Szpiro,Manfred Stern

Sir Walter Raleigh wollte wissen, wie Kanonenkugeln in einem Schiff am dichtesten gestapelt werden können. Der Astronom Johannes Kepler lieferte im Jahr 1611 die Antwort: genau so, wie Gemüsehändler ihre Orangen und Tomaten aufstapeln. Noch conflict dies lediglich eine Vermutung – erst 1998 gelang dem amerikanischen Mathematiker Thomas Hales mit Hilfe von Computern der mathematische Beweis. Einer der besten Autoren für populärwissenschaftliche Mathematik beschreibt auf faszinierende artwork und Weise ein berühmtes mathematisches challenge und dessen Lösung.

Hyperbolic Geometry (Springer Undergraduate Mathematics Series)

The geometry of the hyperbolic airplane has been an energetic and engaging box of mathematical inquiry for many of the prior centuries. This publication offers a self-contained advent to the topic, supplying the reader with an organization snatch of the recommendations and methods of this pretty zone of arithmetic.

Fractal Solutions for Understanding Complex Systems in Earth Sciences (Springer Earth System Sciences)

This e-book offers with fractals in realizing difficulties encountered in earth technological know-how, and their suggestions. It starts off with an research of 2 sessions of tools (homogeneous fractals random versions, and homogeneous resource distributions or “one aspect” distributions) extensively subtle within the geophysical neighborhood, specially for learning capability fields and their comparable resource distributions.

Differential Forms and Connections

This 1994 booklet introduces the instruments of recent differential geometry, external calculus, manifolds, vector bundles and connections, to complex undergraduate and starting graduate scholars in arithmetic, physics and engineering. The e-book covers either classical floor idea and the trendy idea of connections and curvature, and features a bankruptcy on purposes to theoretical physics.

Euclidean and Non-Euclidean Geometry: An Analytic Approach

This booklet provides a rigorous therapy of the basics of airplane geometry: Euclidean, round, elliptical and hyperbolic. the first goal is to acquaint the reader with the classical result of aircraft Euclidean and nonEuclidean geometry, congruence theorems, concurrence theorems, class of isometries, perspective addition and trigonometrical formulae.
