Easy as [pi?] : an introduction to higher mathematics
by
O. A Ivanov(
Book
)
3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 374 WorldCat member libraries 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 universitylevel mathematics majors; even the professional mathematician will derive much pleasurable instruction from reading it."BOOK JACKET

The St. Petersburg school of number theory
by
B. N Delone(
Book
)
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 13 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."
