Geometric analysis and computer graphics : proceedings of a workshop held May 2325, 1988 by
Paul Concus(
Book
)
11 editions published between 1990 and 1991 in English and Romanian and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The meeting at the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute in Berkeley was structured around principal lectures given by Almgren, Callahan, Ericksen, Francis, Gulliver, Hanrahan, Kajiya, Polthier, Sethian, Sterling, Thomas, and Vogel. The divergent backgrounds of these and the many other participants, as reflected in their lectures at the meeting and in the papers presented here, testify to the unifying element of the workshop's central theme. The depth and range of the new developments presented in the lectures point to scientific and technological frontiers being crossed with impressive speed. The present volume is offered as a permanent record for those who were present, and also with a view towards making the material available to a wider audience than were able to attend

Mathematics in Arcadia : Tom Stoppard in conversation with Robert Osserman by
Tom Stoppard(
Visual
)
2 editions published between 1999 and 2014 in English and held by 64 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

A course in differential geometry by
Wilhelm Klingenberg(
Book
)
5 editions published between 1978 and 1983 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This English edition could serve as a text for a first year graduate course on differential geometry, as did for a long time the Chicago Notes of Chern mentioned in the Preface to the German Edition. Suitable references for ordin ary differential equations are Hurewicz, W. Lectures on ordinary differential equations. MIT Press, Cambridge, Mass., 1958, and for the topology of surfaces: Massey, Algebraic Topology, SpringerVerlag, New York, 1977. Upon David Hoffman fell the difficult task of transforming the tightly constructed German text into one which would mesh well with the more relaxed format of the Graduate Texts in Mathematics series. There are some e1aborations and several new figures have been added. I trust that the merits of the German edition have survived whereas at the same time the efforts of David helped to elucidate the general conception of the Course where we tried to put Geometry before Formalism without giving up mathematical rigour. 1 wish to thank David for his work and his enthusiasm during the whole period of our collaboration. At the same time I would like to commend the editors of SpringerVerlag for their patience and good advice. Bonn Wilhelm Klingenberg June,1977 vii From the Preface to the German Edition This book has its origins in a onesemester course in differential geometry which 1 have given many times at Gottingen, Mainz, and Bonn
