Uses of infinity by Leo Zippin( Book )

44 editions published between 1962 and 2014 in English and held by 2,589 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The word "infinity" usually elicits feelings of awe, wonder and admiration; the concept infinity has fascinated philosophers and theologians. The author of this book, mindful of the popular meanings and connotations of the word, shows how professional mathematicians tame this unwieldy concept, come to terms with it, and use its various aspects as their most powerful tools of the trade. --Back cover
Topological transformation groups by Deane Montgomery( Book )

65 editions published between 1955 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 763 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An advanced monograph on the subject of topological transformation groups, this volume summarizes important research conducted during a period of lively activity in this area of mathematics. The book is of particular note because it represents the culmination of research by authors Deane Montgomery and Leo Zippin, undertaken in collaboration with Andrew Gleason of Harvard University, that led to their solution of a well-known mathematical conjecture, Hilbert's Fifth Problem. The treatment begins with an examination of topological spaces and groups and proceeds to locally compact groups and groups with no small subgroups. Subsequent chapters address approximation by Lie groups and transformation groups, concluding with an exploration of compact transformation groups

Uses of Infinity by Leo Zippin( )

1 edition published in 1962 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The word 'infinity' usually elicits feelings of awe, wonder, and admiration; the concept infinity has fascinated philosophers and theologians. The author shows how professional mathematicians tame this unwieldy concept, come to terms with it, and use its various aspects as their most powerful tools of the trade. The early chapters are descriptive and intuitive, full of examples that not only illustrate some infinite processes, but that are worth studying for their own sake. Many questions are raised in the beginning, partially answered in various contexts throughout the book, and finally treated with the precision necessary to give the reader an excellent grasp of the fundamental notions used in the calculus as well as in virtually all other mathematical disciplines. The text is peppered with challenging problems whose solutions appear at the end of the book
