Most widely held works by T. W Körner
Fourier analysis by T. W Körner( Book )
22 editions published between 1986 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 1,077 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The author has provided a shop window for some of the ideas, techniques and elegant results of Fourier analysis, and for their applications. These range from number theory, numerical analysis, control theory and statistics, to earth science, astronomy, and electrical engineering. Each application is placed in perspective with a short essay. The prerequisites are few (the reader with knowledge of second or third year undergraduate mathematics should have no difficulty following the text), and the style is lively and entertaining
The pleasures of counting by T. W Körner( Book )
14 editions published between 1996 and 2012 in English and held by 866 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Publisher's description: What is the connection between the outbreak of cholera in Victorian Soho, the Battle of the Atlantic, African Eve and the design of anchors? One answer is that they are all examples chosen by Dr Tom Körner to show how a little mathematics can shed light on the world around us, and deepen our understanding of it. Dr Körner, an experienced author, describes a variety of topics which continue to interest professional mathematicians, like him. He does this using relatively simple terms and ideas, yet confronting difficulties (which are often the starting point for new discoveries) and avoiding condescension. If you have ever wondered what it is that mathematicians do, and how they go about it, then read on. If you are a mathematician wanting to explain to others how you spend your working days (and nights), then seek inspiration here
Exercises for Fourier analysis by T. W Körner( Book )
15 editions published between 1993 and 2003 in English and Japanese and held by 470 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Naive decision making : mathematics applied to the social world by T. W Körner( Book )
5 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 427 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Professor Korner takes the reader on an enjoyable journey through many aspects of mathematical decision making, with relatable observations, anecdotes and quotations. Topics include probability, statistics, Arrow's theorem, Game Theory and Nash equilibrium. Readers will also gain a great deal of insight into mathematics in general and the role it can play within society. Suitable for those with elementary calculus, this book is ideal as a supplementary text for undergraduate courses in probability, game theory and decision making. Engaging and intriguing, it will also appeal to all those of a mathematical mind. To aid understanding, many exercises are included, with solutions available online. distributed by Syndetic Solutions, LLC
A companion to analysis : a second first and first second course in analysis by T. W Körner( Book )
7 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 315 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Vectors, pure and applied : a general introduction to linear algebra by T. W Körner( Book )
6 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Many books in linear algebra focus purely on getting students through exams, but this text explains both the how and the why of linear algebra and enables students to begin thinking like mathematicians. The author demonstrates how different topics (geometry, abstract algebra, numerical analysis, physics) make use of vectors in different ways and how these ways are connected, preparing students for further work in these areas. The book is packed with hundreds of exercises ranging from the routine to the challenging. Sketch solutions of the easier exercises are available online"--
Pseudofunctions and Helson sets by T. W Körner( Book )
3 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Calculus for the ambitious by T. W Körner( Book )
2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
From the author of The Pleasures of Counting and Naïve Decision Making comes a calculus book perfect for self-study. It will open up the ideas of the calculus for any 16 to 18 year old about to begin studies in mathematics, and will be useful for anyone who would like to see a different account of the calculus from that given in the standard texts. In a lively and easy-to-read style, Professor Körner uses approximation and estimates in a way that will easily merge into the standard development of analysis. By using Taylor's theorem with error bounds he is able to discuss topics that are rarely covered at this introductory level. This book describes important and interesting ideas in a way that will enthuse a new generation of mathematicians
Mathematisches Denken : vom Vergnügen am Umgang mit Zahlen by T. W Körner( Book )
2 editions published in 1998 in German and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A course of pure mathematics by G. H Hardy( Book )
2 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Since its publication in 1908, G.H. Hardy's Pure Mathematics has been a classic work to which successive generations of budding mathematicians have turned at the beginning of their undergraduate courses. In its pages, Hardy combines the enthusiasm of the missionary with the rigour of the purist in his exposition of the fundamental ideas of the differential and integral calculus, of the properties of infinite series and of other topics involving the notion of limit."--Jacket
The Bartle-Dunford-Schwartz integral integration with respect to a sigma-additive vector measure by T. V Panchapagesan( )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume is a thorough and comprehensive treatise on vector measures. The functions to be integrated can be either 0, infinity]- or real- or complex-valued and the vector measure can take its values in arbitrary locally convex Hausdorff spaces. Moreover, the domain of the vector measure does not have to be a sigma-algebra: it can also be a delta-ring. The book contains not only a large amount of new material but also corrects various errors in well-known results available in the literature. It will appeal to a wide audience of mathematical analysts
Leonce und Lena : Oper nach dem gleichnamigen Lustspiel von Georg Büchner by Paul Dessau( )
2 editions published in 1978 in German and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Marrying, voting, choosing ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Mathematics cannot tell us how to marry, vote or choose, but it can cast an interesting light on these problems. In this video, the speaker talks about the kindergarten crocodile problem and the marriage problem
