By Eli Maor

The curiosity earned on a checking account, the association of seeds in a sunflower, and the form of the Gateway Arch in St. Louis are all in detail attached with the mysterious quantity e. during this casual and interesting background, Eli Maor portrays the curious characters and the dependent arithmetic that lie at the back of the quantity. Designed for a reader with just a modest mathematical heritage, this biography brings out the crucial value of e to arithmetic and illuminates a golden period within the age of science.

Problem-Solving and Selected Topics in Number Theory: In the Spirit of the Mathematical Olympiads

The e-book offers a self-contained creation to classical Number idea. the entire proofs of the person theorems and the options of the routines are being awarded step-by-step. a few ancient feedback also are awarded. The publication may be directed to complex undergraduate, starting graduate scholars in addition to to scholars who arrange for mathematical competitions (ex.

Elementary Dirichlet Series and Modular Forms (Springer Monographs in Mathematics)

A booklet on any mathematical topic past the textbook point is of little price except it comprises new rules and new views. It is helping to incorporate new effects, only if they provide the reader new insights and are awarded in addition to recognized outdated ends up in a transparent exposition. it truly is with this philosophy that the writer writes this quantity.

Zeta and eta functions: A new hypothesis

Euler-Riemann’s zeta and Dirichlet’s eta services are outlined for actual adverse numbers as analytic continuation. within the current publication the writer defines new sequence for zeta and eta capabilities, for actual detrimental and imaginary numbers with out analytic continuation. the recent zeta and eta features continue the nature of harmonic sequence and alternating harmonic sequence respectively for genuine damaging numbers, as for genuine optimistic numbers.

Computation with Linear Algebraic Groups (Chapman & Hall/CRC Monographs and Research Notes in Mathematics)

Designed as a self-contained account of a couple of key algorithmic difficulties and their options for linear algebraic teams, this publication combines in a single unmarried textual content either an creation to the fundamental thought of linear algebraic teams and a considerable choice of precious algorithms. Computation with Linear Algebraic teams bargains a useful advisor to graduate scholars and researchers operating in algebraic teams, computational algebraic geometry, and computational team thought, in addition to these trying to find a concise creation to the idea of linear algebraic teams.
