Entropy and information by M. V Volʹkenshteĭn ( )
9 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 378 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Deals with the thermodynamical concept of entropy and its relationship to information theory. This book explains the universality of the term 'Entropy' not only as a physical phenomenon, but reveals its existence also in other domains. It is suitable for physicists, information-theorists, biologists, and artists
Non-Euclidean geometry in the theory of automorphic functions by Jacques Hadamard ( Book )
5 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This unique exposition by Hadamard offers a fascinating and intuitive introduction to the subject of automorphic functions and illuminates its connection to differential equations, a connection not often found in other texts."--BOOK JACKET

Bernhard Riemann, 1826-1866 : turning points in the conception of mathematics by Detlef Laugwitz ( Book )
9 editions published between 1999 and 2009 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book, originally written in German and presented here in an English-language translation, examines Riemann's scientific work from a single unifying perspective. Laugwitz describes Riemann's development of a conceptual approach to mathematics at a time when conventional algorithmic thinking dictated that formulas and figures, rigid constructs, and transformations of terms were the only legitimate means of studying mathematical objects. David Hilbert gave prominence to the Riemannian principle of utilizing thought, not calculation, to achieve proofs. Hermann Weyl interpreted the Riemann pri

In search of infinity by N. I︠A︡ Vilenkin ( Book )
5 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The concept of infinity has been for hundreds of years one of the most fascinating and elusive ideas to tantalize the minds of scholars and lay people alike. The theory of infinite sets lies at the heart of much of mathematics, yet is has produced a series of paradoxes that have led many scholars to doubt the soundness of it foundations. The author of this book presents a popular-level account of the roads followed by human thought in attempts to understand the idea of the infinite in mathematics and physics. In doing so, he brings to the general reader a deep insight into the nature of the problem and its importance to an understanding of our world. "When I read the first edition of the book, about 20 years ago, I was carried away by Vilenkins storytelling and his ability to bring subtle mathematical ideas down to earth. He stretches our imagination and educates our intuitionThe second edition improves on the first by omission of some routine material about finite properties of sets, and increased attention to infinity. There is a wealth of new material on the position of infinity in human thought, from philosophy to physics, and also on its role in the history of mathematics. In particular, there are now biographical notes on over 100 mathematicians. Abe Shenitzers elegant translation makes this a rare work of literature---a serious mathematical book that will be read from over to cover."--John Stillwell, Monash University, Australia
Stories about maxima and minima by V. M Tikhomirov ( Book )
2 editions published between 1990 and 1995 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Diophantus and diophantine equations by I. G Bashmakova ( Book )
4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Intuitive combinatorial topology by V. G Bolti︠a︡nskiĭ ( Book )
2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Topology is a relatively young and very important branch of mathematics. It studies properties of objects that are preserved by deformations, twistings, and stretchings, but not tearing. This book deals with the topology of curves and surfaces as well as with the fundamental concepts of homotopy and homology, and does this in a lively and well-motivated way. There is hardly an area of mathematics that does not make use of topological results and concepts. The importance of topological methods for different areas of physics is also beyond doubt. They are used in field theory and general relativity, in the physics of low temperatures, and in modern quantum theory. The book is well suited not only as preparation for students who plan to take a course in algebraic topology but also for advanced undergraduates or beginning graduates interested in finding out what topology is all about. The book has more than 200 problems, many examples, and over 200 illustrations."--BOOK JACKET
Linear operators in Hilbert space by Werner Schmeidler ( Book )
5 editions published in 1965 in English and Undetermined and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A history of non-Euclidean geometry : evolution of the concept of a geometric space by B. A Rozenfelʹd ( Book )
2 editions published between 1987 and 1988 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book is an investigation of the mathematical and philosophical factors underlying the discovery of the concept of noneuclidean geometries, and the subsequent extension of the concept of space. Chapters one through five are devoted to the evolution of the concept of space, leading up to chapter six which describes the discovery of noneuclidean geometry, and the corresponding broadening of the concept of space. The author goes on to discuss concepts such as multidimensional spaces and curvature, and transformation groups. The book ends with a chapter describing the applications of nonassociative algebras to geometry
