Vladimir Arnold - Collected Works: Singularities in Symplectic and Contact Geometry 1980-1985 (Vladimir I. Arnold - Collected Works) (English and Russian Edition)

Vladimir Arnold - Collected Works: Singularities in Symplectic and Contact Geometry 1980-1985 (Vladimir I. Arnold - Collected Works) (English and Russian Edition) Lowest new price: $149.00
List price: $149.00
Author: Vladimir I. Arnold

Volume IV of the Collected Works of V.I. Arnold includes papers written mostly during the period from 1980 to 1985. Arnold’s work of this period is so multifaceted that it is almost impossible to give a single unifying theme for it. It ranges from properties of integral convex polygons to the large-scale structure of the Universe. Also during this period Arnold wrote eight papers related to magnetic dynamo problems, which were included in Volume II, mostly devoted to hydrodynamics. Thus the topic of singularities in symplectic and contact geometry was chosen only as a “marker” for this volume.

There are many articles specifically translated for this volume. They include problems for the Moscow State University alumni conference, papers on magnetic analogues of Newton’s and Ivory’s theorems, on attraction of dust-like particles, on singularities in variational calculus, on Poisson structures, and others. The volume also contains translations of Arnold’s comments to Selected works of H. Weyl and those of A.N. Kolmogorov. 

Vladimir Arnold was one of the great mathematical scientists of our time. He is famous for both the breadth and the depth of his work. At the same time he is one of the most prolific and outstanding mathematical authors.

Painless Geometry (Painless Series)

Painless Geometry (Painless Series) Lowest new price: $2.00
Lowest used price: $1.55
List price: $9.99
Author: Lynette Long
Brand: Long, Lynette, Ph.D.

The author demonstrates how solving geometric problems amounts to fitting parts together to solve interesting puzzles. Students discover relationships that exist between parallel and perpendicular lines; analyze the characteristics of distinct shapes such as circles, quadrilaterals, and triangles; and learn how geometric principles can solve real-world problems. Titles in Barron's Painless Series are written especially for middle school and high school students who are having a difficult time with a specific subject. In many cases, a student is confused by the subject's complexity and details. Still other students simply finds a subject uninteresting, an attitude that usually results in lower grades. Painless titles offer informal, student-friendly approaches to each subject, emphasizing interesting details, supplementing the text with amusing insights, and outlining potential pitfalls clearly and step by step. Students begin to understand how disparate details all fit together to form a clear picture. Timelines, ideas for interesting projects, and "Brain Tickler" quizzes in many of these titles help to take the pain out of study and improve each student's grades.

Features:

  • Painless Geometry

This is not a proceedings of the 2004 conference “n-Categories: Fo- dations and Applications” that we organized and ran at the IMA during the two weeks June 7–18, 2004! We thank all the participants for helping make that a vibrant and inspiring occasion. We also thank the IMA sta? for a magni?cent job. There has been a great deal of work in higher c- egory theory since then, but we still feel that it is not yet time to o?er a volume devoted to the main topic of the conference.

Geometry is a subject full of mathematical richness and beauty. But it's a subject that bewilders many students because it's so unlike the math they've done before—it requires the use of deductive logic in formal proofs. If you're having a hard time wrapping your mind around what that even means, you've come to the right place! Inside, you'll find out how a proof's chain of logic works and even discover some secrets for getting past rough spots along the way. You don't have to be a math genius to grasp geometry, and this book helps you get un-stumped in a hurry!

  • Find out how to decode complex geometry proofs
  • Learn to reason deductively and inductively
  • Make sense of angles, arcs, area, and more

The Fractal Geometry of Nature

The Fractal Geometry of Nature Lowest new price: $20.34
Lowest used price: $9.40
List price: $60.00
Author: Benoit Mandelbrot

Clouds are not spheres, mountains are not cones, and lightening does not travel in a straight line. The complexity of nature's shapes differs in kind, not merely degree, from that of the shapes of ordinary geometry, the geometry of fractal shapes.

Now that the field has expanded greatly with many active researchers, Mandelbrot presents the definitive overview of the origins of his ideas and their new applications. The Fractal Geometry of Nature is based on his highly acclaimed earlier work, but has much broader and deeper coverage and more extensive illustrations.

Imagine an equilateral triangle. Now, imagine smaller equilateral triangles perched in the center of each side of the original triangle--you have a Star of David. Now, place still smaller equilateral triangles in the center of each of the star's 12 sides. Repeat this process infinitely and you have a Koch snowflake, a mind-bending geometric figure with an infinitely large perimeter, yet with a finite area. This is an example of the kind of mathematical puzzles that this book addresses.

The Fractal Geometry of Nature is a mathematics text. But buried in the deltas and lambdas and integrals, even a layperson can pick out and appreciate Mandelbrot's point: that somewhere in mathematics, there is an explanation for nature. It is not a coincidence that fractal math is so good at generating images of cliffs and shorelines and capillary beds.
