Entropy and information by M. V Volʹkenshteĭn ( )
8 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 381 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This treasure of popular science by the Russian biophysicist Mikhail V. Volkenstein is at last, more than twenty years after its appearance in Russian, available in English translation. As its title Entropy and Information suggests, the book deals with the thermodynamical concept of entropy and its interpretation in terms of information theory. The author shows how entropy is not to be considered a mere shadow of the central physical concept of energy, but more appropriately as a leading player in all of the major natural processes: physical, chemical, biological, evolutionary, and even cultural. The theory of entropy is thoroughly developed from its beginnings in the foundational work of Sadi Carnot and Clausius in the context of heat engines, including expositions of much of the necessary physics and mathematics, and illustrations from everyday life of the importance of entropy."--Back cover

Topology I : general survey by S. P Novikov ( Book )
1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book constitutes nothing less than an up-to-date survey of the whole field of topology (with the exception of "general (set-theoretic) topology"), or, in the words of Novikov himself, of what was termed at the end of the 19th century "Analysis Situs", and subsequently diversified into the various subfields of combinatorial, algebraic, differential, homotopic, and geometric topology. The book gives an overview of these subfields, beginning with the elements and proceeding right up to the present frontiers of research. Thus one finds here the whole range of topological concepts from fibre spaces (Chap.2), CW-complexes, homology and homotopy, through bordism theory and K-theory to the Adams-Novikov spectral sequence (Chap.3), and in Chapter 4 an exhaustive (but necessarily concentrated) survey of the theory of manifolds. An appendix sketching the recent impressive developments in the theory of knots and links and low-dimensional topology generally, brings the survey right up to the present. This work represents the flagship, as it were, in whose wake follow more detailed surveys of the various subfields, by various authors

The St. Petersburg school of number theory by B. N Delone ( Book )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"For over two centuries, the work of St. Petersburg mathematicians in number theory has constituted a glorious contribution to mathematics. The book The St. Petersburg School of Number Theory is about the life and work of six prominent members of this school, Chebyshev, Korkin, Zolotarev, Markov, Voronoi, and Vinogradov. The work of these mathematicians in number theory is indeed of the highest quality and continues to have lasting significance."

Easy as [pi?] : an introduction to higher mathematics by O. A Ivanov ( Book )
1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
"This book aims at introducing the reader possessing some high school mathematics to both the higher and the more fundamental developments of the basic themes of elementary mathematics. To this end most chapters begin with a series of elementary problems, behind whose diverting formulation more advanced mathematical ideas lie hidden. These are then made explicit and further developments explored, thereby deepening and broadening the reader's understanding of mathematics - enabling him or her to see mathematics as a hologram." "The book arose from a course for potential high school teachers of mathematics taught for several years at St. Petersburg University, and nearly every chapter ends with an interesting commentary on the relevance of its subject matter to the actual classroom setting. However, it can be recommended to a much wider readership, including university-level mathematics majors; even the professional mathematician will derive much pleasurable instruction from reading it."--BOOK JACKET
