Pi, a source book by Lennart Berggren( Book )
12 editions published between 2000 and 2010 in English and held by 244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book documents the history of pi from the dawn of mathematical time to the present. One of the beauties of the literature on pi is that it allows for the inclusion of very modern, yet accessible, mathematics. The articles on pi collected herein include selections from the mathematical and computational literature over four millennia, a variety of historical studies on the cultural significance of the number, and an assortment of anecdotal, fanciful, and simply amusing pieces. For this new edition, the authors have updated the original material while adding new material of historical and cultural interest. There is a substantial exposition of the recent history of the computation of digits of pi, a discussion of the normality of the distribution of the digits, new translations of works by Viete and Huygen, as well as Kaplansky's never-before-published 'Song of Pi.'"--Publisher's website

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
After decades of violence, Burundi is edging towards a lasting peace settlement. But the country still faces large problems. "We are afraid. Every night we cannot sleep because we hear guns shooting," laments one woman. In spite of three years of peace negotiations, sporadic fighting still occurs. Burundi is paralysed by deep political divides. Most people live in dire poverty and for them the prospect of democracy means little. However, the growth in independent media has prevented politicians manipulating ethnic hatreds. "The politicians are not very influential any more. They don't have the power to manipulate now," states Alexis Sinduhiye, Editor of Radio Publique Africaine. Many refugees have returned home and Burundi now has an army which reflects the country's ethnic composition. There are hopes that next year's election will lead to more stability. But after so much violence, the past still casts a long shadow for many Burundians

Ptolemy's Geography : an annotated translation of the theoretical chapters by J. L Berggren( Book )
1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Ptolemy's Geography is the only book on cartography to have survived from the classical period and one of the most influential scientific works of all time. Written in the second century A.D., for more than fifteen centuries it was the most detailed topography of Europe and Asia available and the best reference on how to gather data and draw maps. Ptolemy championed the use of astronomical observation and applied mathematics in determining geographical locations. But more important, he introduced the practice of writing down coordinates of latitude and longitude for every feature drawn on a world map, so that someone else possessing only the text of the Geography could reproduce Ptolemy's map at any time, in whole or in part, at any scale." "Historians of science, classicists, and anyone who enjoys beautiful maps or map making will find this work an indispensable addition to their library."--Jacket
