Most widely held works by Silvio Levy
Three-dimensional geometry and topology by William P Thurston ( Book )
11 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 737 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Algebra by Falko Lorenz ( )
7 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 484 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Introduces the reader to the classical parts of algebra. This book ends with an appendix containing exercises and notes on the previous parts of the book. Brief historical comments and suggestions for further reading are also scattered through the text
The eightfold way : the beauty of Klein's quartic curve ( Book )
14 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and held by 442 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Felix Klein discovered in the 1870s that the simple equation x[superscript 3]y + y[superscript 3]z + z[superscript 3]x = 0 (in complex projective coordinates) describes a surface having many remarkable properties, including 336-fold symmetry - the maximum possible for any surface of this genus. Since then this object has come up in different guises in several areas of mathematics." "The mathematical sculptor Helaman Ferguson has tried to distill some of the beauty and remarkable properties of this surface in the form of a sculpture that he entitled The Eightfold Way, permanently installed at the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute in Berkeley." "This volume seeks to explore the rich tangle of properties and theories surrounding this object, as well as its esthetic aspects."--BOOK JACKET
A beginner's book of TeX by Raymond Seroul ( Book )
23 editions published between 1989 and 1995 in English and held by 430 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book is a friendly introduction to TEX, the powerful typesetting system designed by Donald Knuth. It is addressed primarily to beginners, but it contains much information that will be useful to aspiring TEX "wizards". Moreover, the authors kept firmly in mind the diversity of backgrounds that characterizes TEX users: authors in the sciences and in the humanities, secretaries, technical typists ... The book contains a careful explanation of all fundamental concepts and commands, but also a wealth of commented examples and "tricks" based on the authors' long experience with TEX. The attentive reader will quickly be able to create a table, or customize the appearance of the page, or code even the most complicated formula. The last third of the book is devoted to a Dictionary/Index, summarizing all the material in the text and going into greater depth in many areas
Flavors of geometry by Silvio Levy ( Book )
11 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 357 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Flavors of Geometry is a volume of lectures on four geometrically influenced fields of mathematics that have experienced great development in recent years." "Growing out of a series of introductory lectures given at the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute in January 1995 and January 1996, the book presents chapters on hyperbolic geometry, dynamics in several complex variables, convex geometry, and volume estimation, by masters in their respective fields. Each lecture begins with a discussion of elementary concepts, examines the highlights of the field, and concludes with a look at more advanced material. The style and presentation of the chapters are clear and accessible, and most of the lectures are richly illustrated. Bibliographies and indexes are included to encourage further reading on the topics discussed." "These lectures are an excellent starting place for graduate students and will also interest researchers wanting a "flavor" of new developments in geometry."--Jacket

Die vergessense Revolution oder die Wiedergeburt des antiken Wissens by Lucio Russo ( )
2 editions published in 2005 in German and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Im 3. und 2. Jahrhundert v. Chr. ereignete sich in der griechischen Welt ein wissenschaftlicher und technologischer Urknall. Schon im vorhergegangenen klassischen Zeitalter war die griechische Kultur in den Knsten, der Literatur und der Philosophie zu groen Hhen aufgestiegen; erst die Zeit eines Archimedes und eines Euklid jedoch, brachte die Entstehung von Wissenschaften in unserem Sinne. Damals entstanden hoch entwickelte Technologien, auf die man sich erst im 18. Jahrhundert wieder besinnen sollte. Gleichzeitig mit dieser wissenschaftlichen Revolution fanden auch auf vielen anderen Gebieten

Making waves : a guide to the ideas behind Outside in by Silvio Levy ( Book )
3 editions published between 1995 and 1999 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Discusses the problem of turning a sphere inside out without creating sharp bends or creases, illustrating an application of turning points
Algebra by Falko Lorenz ( )

The forgotten revolution : how science was born in 300 BC and why it had to be reborn by Lucio Russo ( Book )
5 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In the age of Archimedes and Euclid (third century B.C.) science as we know it was born, and gave rise to sophisticated technology that would not be seen again until the 18th century. This scientific revolution was accompanied by great changes in many other fields, such as art and medicine. What were the landmarks of this enormous cultural shift? Why are they so little known today? How to they relate to the post-1500 science that we are familiar with? What led to the end of ancient science? These are the questions that this book discusses, in the belief that the answers bear on choices we face today."--BOOK JACKET
Geometry by Marcel Berger ( Book )

Elements of functional analysis by F Hirsch ( Book )
2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is a graduate text on functional analysis. After presenting the fundamental function spaces and their duals, the authors study topics in operator theory and finally develop the theory of distributions up to significant applications such as Sobolev spaces and Dirichlet problems. Along the way, the reader is presented with a truly remarkable assortment of well formulated and interesting exercises, which test the understanding as well as point out many related topics. The answers and hints that are not already contained in the statements of the exercises are collected at the end of the book
