Most widely held works by I. M Gelʹfand
Calculus of variations by I. M Gelʹfand ( Book )
32 editions published between 1963 and 2000 in English and held by 1,190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
First 6 chapters include theory of fields and sufficient conditions for weak and strong extrema. Chapter 7 considers application of variation methods to systems with infinite degrees of freedom, and Chapter 8 deals with direct methods in the calculus of variations. Problems follow each chapter and the 2 appendices
Representation theory selected papers by I. M Gelʹfand ( )
5 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 767 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The unifying theme of this collection of papers by the very creative Russian mathematician I. M. Gelfand and his co-workers is the representation theory of groups and lattices
Functions and graphs by I. M Gelʹfand ( Book )
22 editions published between 1968 and 2002 in English and held by 764 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The second in a series of systematic studies by a celebrated mathematician I. M. Gelfand and colleagues, this volume presents students with a well-illustrated sequence of problems and exercises designed to illuminate the properties of functions and graphs. Since readers do not have the benefit of a blackboard on which a teacher constructs a graph, the authors abandoned the customary use of diagrams in which only the final form of the graph appears; instead, the book's margins feature step-by-step diagrams for the complete construction of each graph. The first part of the book employs simple functions to analyze the fundamental methods of constructing graphs. The second half deals with more complicated and refined questions concerning linear functions, quadratic trinomials, linear fractional functions, power functions, and rational functions

The unity of mathematics in honor of the ninetieth birthday of I.M. Gelfand by P. I Etingof ( )
8 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and German and held by 493 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"A tribute to the vision and legacy of Israel Moiseevich Gelfand, the invited papers in this volume reflect the unity of mathematics as a whole, with particular emphasis on the many connections among the fields of geometry, physics, and representation theory. Written by leading mathematicians, the text is broadly divided into two sections: the first is devoted to developments at the intersection of geometry and physics, and the second to representation theory and algebraic geometry. Topics include conformal field theory, K-theory, noncommutative geometry, gauge theory, representations of infinite-dimensional Lie algebras, and various aspects of the Langlands program. Graduate students and researchers will benefit from and find inspiration in this broad and unique work, which brings together fundamental results in a number of disciplines and highlights the rewards of an interdisciplinary approach to mathematics and physics."--Publisher's website
Commutative normed rings by I. M Gelʹfand ( Book )
12 editions published between 1957 and 2003 in English and held by 482 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Representations of the rotation and Lorentz groups and their applications by I. M Gelʹfand ( Book )
14 editions published in 1963 in English and Undetermined and held by 441 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Discriminants, resultants, and multidimensional determinants by I. M Gelʹfand ( Book )
10 editions published between 1994 and 2008 in English and held by 421 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book revives and vastly expands the classical theory of resultants and discriminants. Most of the main new results of the book have been published earlier in more than a dozen joint papers of the authors. The book nicely complements these original papers with many examples illustrating both old and new results of the theory."--Mathematical Reviews "Collecting and extending the fundamental and highly original results of the authors, it presents a unique blend of classical mathematics and very recent developments in algebraic geometry, homological algebra, and combinatorial theory."--Zentralblatt Math "This book is highly recommended if you want to get into the thick of contemporary algebra, or if you wish to find some interesting problem to work on, whose solution will benefit mankind." -Gian-Carlo Rota, Advanced Book Reviews " ... the book is almost perfectly written, and thus I warmly recommend it not only to scholars but especially to students. The latter do need a text with broader views, which shows that mathematics is not just a sequence of apparently unrelated expositions of new theories ... but instead a very huge and intricate building whose edification may sometimes experience difficulties ... but eventually progresses steadily." -Bulletin of the American Mathematical Society
Algebra by I. M Gelʹfand ( Book )
14 editions published between 1993 and 2004 in English and Spanish and held by 390 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Trigonometry by I. M Gelʹfand ( Book )
5 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and held by 384 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Trigonometry, a work in the collection of the Gelfand School Program, is the result of a collaboration between two experienced pre-college teachers, one of whom, I.M. Gelfand, is considered to be among our most distinguished living mathematicians. His impact on generations of young people, some now mathematicians of renown, continues to be remarkable. Trigonometry covers all the basics of the subject through beautiful illustrations and examples. The definitions of the trigonometric functions are geometrically motivated. Geometric relationships are rewritten in trigonometric form and extended. The text then makes a transition to the study of algebraic and analytic properties of trigonometric functions, in a way that provides a solid foundation for more advanced mathematical discussions. Throughout, the treatment stimulates the reader to think of mathematics as a unified subject. Like other I.M. Gelfand treasures in the program-Algebra, Functions and Graphs, and The Method of Coordinates-Trigonometry is written in an engaging style, and approaches the material in a unique fashion that will motivate students and teachers alike. From a review of Algebra, I.M. Gelfand and A. Shen, ISBN 0-8176-3677-3: "The idea behind teaching is to expect students to learn why things are true, rather than have them memorize ways of solving a few problems, as most of our books have done. [This] same philosophy lies behind the current text by Gel'fand and Shen. There are specific 'practical' problems but there is much more development of the ideas ... [The authors] have shown how to write a serious yet lively book on algebra."--R. Askey, The American Mathematics Monthly
