Poetry of the universe : a mathematical exploration of the cosmos by Robert Osserman ( Book )
29 editions published between 1995 and 2013 in English and held by 1,263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A history of developments in mathematics from the geometry of the ancient Greeks to the twentieth-century concept of fractional dimensions, focusing on how these ideas have influenced theories in physics and expanded our understanding of the structure of the universe
A survey of minimal surfaces by Robert Osserman ( Book )
34 editions published between 1969 and 2014 in English and held by 655 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This clear and comprehensive study features 12 sections that discuss parametric and non-parametric surfaces, surfaces that minimize area, isothermal parameters, Bernstein's theorem, minimal surfaces with boundary, and many other topics. This revised edition includes material on minimal surfaces in relativity and topology and updated work on Plateau's problem and isoperimetric inequalities. 2002 edition"--
Two-dimensional calculus by Robert Osserman ( Book )
18 editions published between 1968 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 451 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Two-dimensional calculus is vital to the mastery of the broader field, and this text presents an extensive treatment of this crucial subject. The book's advantages include the thorough integration of linear algebra and materials that aid the development of readers' geometric intuition. Problem sets appear at the end of each chapter, many of them with answers. 1986 edition"--
Geometry of the Laplace operator by AMS Symposium on the Geometry of the Laplace Operator$ (1979 : University of Hawaii at Manoa) ( Book )
12 editions published between 1979 and 1980 in English and Undetermined and held by 404 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Differential geometry : [proceedings of the Symposium in Pure Mathematics of the American Mathematical Society, held at Stanford University, Stanford, California, July 30-August 17, 1973 by Symposium in Pure Mathematics ( Book )
17 editions published in 1975 in English and Undetermined and held by 371 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Geometry V : minimal surfaces by R Osserman ( Book )
15 editions published between 1997 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Osserman (Ed.) Geometry V Minimal Surfaces The theory of minimal surfaces has expanded in many directions over the past decade or two. This volume gathers in one place an overview of some of the most exciting developments, presented by five of the leading contributors to those developments. Hirotaka Fujimoto, who obtained the definitive results on the Gauss map of minimal surfaces, reports on Nevanlinna Theory and Minimal Surfaces. Stefan Hildebrandt provides an up-to-date account of the Plateau problem and related boundary-value problems. David Hoffman and Hermann Karcher describe the wealth of results on embedded minimal surfaces from the past decade, starting with Costa's surface and the subsequent Hoffman-Meeks examples. Finally, Leon Simon covers the PDE aspect of minimal surfaces, with a survey of known results both in the classical case of surfaces and in the higher dimensional case. The book will be very useful as a reference and research guide to graduate students and researchers in mathematics
The geometry of the generalized Gauss map by David A Hoffman ( Book )
10 editions published in 1980 in English and Undetermined and held by 233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Fermat's last theorem the theorem and its proof, an exploration of issues and ideas ( Visual )
4 editions published between 1993 and 2012 in English and held by 193 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The videotape is based on a presentation at the Palace of Fine Arts Theater in San Francisco that took place on July 28, 1993, exactly five weeks after Andrew Wiles announced that he had a proof of Fermat's Last Theorem. The videotape also includes excerpts from an interview with Andrew Wiles made in Oxford, England, the day after he announced his proof in Cambridge. Both the booklet and the videotape are designed for a general audience. They deal not only with Fermat's Last Theorem itself, but with the excitement of mathematical discovery in general and the way mathematical ideas can illuminate other subjects
Mathematics in Arcadia Tom Stoppard in conversation with Robert Osserman by Tom Stoppard ( Visual )
4 editions published between 1999 and 2014 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A dialogue between the mathematician Robert Osserman and the playwright Tom Stoppard commenting on Stoppard's play Arcadia. The plot of the stageplay revolves around the philosophical inquiries of a young woman and her tutor concerning the nature of mathematics, specifically Fermat's last theorem, and the investigations of two other scholars into the proofs for the theorem
Les mathématiques de l'univers : Ératosthène, Einstein, Dante, Feynman et les autres by Robert Osserman ( Book )
2 editions published in 2008 in French and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Ce livre retrace l'évolution des théories mathématiques qui ont aidé à éclairer la nature de l'univers observable. Riche en anecdotes, cet ouvrage explore les sursauts d'imagination et les élans visionnaires des mathématiciens fondateurs de la compréhension du monde. Au fil des pages, l'auteur présente des figures emblématiques telles que Carl Friedrich Gauss et Bernhard Riemann
Geometrie des Universums : von der Göttlichen Komödie zu Riemann und Einstein by Robert Osserman ( Book )
3 editions published between 1997 and 2012 in German and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Funny numbers an evening with Steve Martin in conversation with Bob Osserman by American Mathematical Society ( Visual )
3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Author and actor Steve Martin chatted with mathematician Robert Osserman of the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MSRI) in Berkeley on December 15, 2002 at San Francisco's Herbst Theatre. They discussed literature and mathematics, why two banjos are like one slide rule, and whether we really know what pi is. Steve Martin read and enacted excerpts from his works, reminisced about his work for the Smothers Brothers, and discussed the authors who influenced him. The hilarity of this event as it spins out of control has to be seen ... to be believed!"--Container
