In search of infinity by
N. I︠A︡ Vilenkin(
Book
)
17 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 814 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The concept of infinity has been for hundreds of years one of the most fascinating and elusive ideas to tantalize the minds of scholars and lay people alike. The theory of infinite sets lies at the heart of much of mathematics, yet is has produced a series of paradoxes that have led many scholars to doubt the soundness of it foundations. The author of this book presents a popularlevel account of the roads followed by human thought in attempts to understand the idea of the infinite in mathematics and physics. In doing so, he brings to the general reader a deep insight into the nature of the problem and its importance to an understanding of our world. "When I read the first edition of the book, about 20 years ago, I was carried away by Vilenkins storytelling and his ability to bring subtle mathematical ideas down to earth. He stretches our imagination and educates our intuitionThe second edition improves on the first by omission of some routine material about finite properties of sets, and increased attention to infinity. There is a wealth of new material on the position of infinity in human thought, from philosophy to physics, and also on its role in the history of mathematics. In particular, there are now biographical notes on over 100 mathematicians. Abe Shenitzers elegant translation makes this a rare work of literaturea serious mathematical book that will be read from over to cover."John Stillwell, Monash University, Australia

Representation of Lie groups and special functions : recent advances by
N. I︠A︡ Vilenkin(
Book
)
16 editions published between 1995 and 2011 in English and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The present book is a continuation of the threevolume work Representation of Lie Groups and Special Functions by the same authors. Here, they deal with the exposition of the main new developments in the contemporary theory of multivariate special functions, bringing together material that has not been presented in monograph form before. The theory of orthogonal symmetric polynomials (Jack polynomials, Macdonald's polynomials and others) and multivariate hypergeometric functions associated to symmetric polynomials are treated. Multivariate hypergeometric functions, multivariate Jacobi polynomials and hharmonic polynomials connected with root systems and Coxeter groups are introduced. Also, the theory of Gel'fand hypergeometric functions and the theory of multivariate hypergeometric series associated to ClebschGordan coefficients of the unitary group U(n) is given. The volume concludes with an extensive bibliography. For research mathematicians and physicists, postgraduate students in mathematics and mathematical and theoretical physics

Generalized functions by
I. M Gelʹfand(
Book
)
32 editions published between 1964 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The first systematic theory of generalized functions (also known as distributions) was created in the early 1950s, although some aspects were developed much earlier, most notably in the definition of the Green's function in mathematics and in the work of Paul Dirac on quantum electrodynamics in physics. The sixvolume collection, Generalized Functions, written by I. M. Gel′fand and coauthors and published in Russian between 1958 and 1966, gives an introduction to generalized functions and presents various applications to analysis, PDE, stochastic processes, and representation theory.

Representation of Lie groups and special functions by
N. I︠A︡ Vilenkin(
Book
)
18 editions published between 1992 and 2011 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is the last of three major volumes which present a comprehensive treatment of the theory of the main classes of special functions from the point of view of the theory of group representations. This volume deals with qanalogs of special functions, quantum groups and algebras (including Hopf algebras), and (representations of) semisimple Lie groups. Also treated are special functions of a matrix argument, representations in the Gel'fandTsetlin basis, and, finally, modular forms, thetafunctions and affine Lie algebras. The volume builds upon results of the previous two volumes, and presents many new results. Subscribers to the complete set of three volumes will be entitled to a discount of 15%
