A survey of modern algebra by
Garrett Birkhoff(
Book
)
163 editions published between 1941 and 2017 in 4 languages and held by 2,588 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This classic text introduces abstract algebra using familiar and concrete examples that illustrate each concept as it is presented. It covers such topics as the role of careful proof in algebra; linear algebra as grounded in geometry; groups as expressions of symmetry; subgroups and subsystems leading to lattice theory; and much more"Cover

Lattice theory by
Garrett Birkhoff(
Book
)
47 editions published between 1940 and 1995 in 4 languages and held by 647 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Since its original publication in 1940, this book has been revised and modernized several times, most notably in 1948 (second edition) and in 1967 (third edition). The material is organized into four main parts: general notions and concepts of lattice theory (Chapters IV), universal algebra (Chapters VIVII), applications of lattice theory to various areas of mathematics (Chapters VIIIXII), and mathematical structures that can be developed using lattices (Chapters XIIIXVII). At the end of the book there is a list of 166 unsolved problems in lattice theory, many of which still remain open. I

Hydrodynamics; a study in logic, fact, and similitude by
Garrett Birkhoff(
Book
)
8 editions published between 1950 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 473 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A complete revision of the first edition this book. The author has added a chapter on turbulence, and has expanded the work on paradoxes and modeling. W.M. Elsasser said of the first edition, "A book such as this, concentrating as it does on the boundaries of fundamental progress, should be indispensable to all those engaged in hydrodynamical research who are concerned with the type of generalization that so often in the past has led to fundamental progress."Originally published in 1960. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest printondemand technology to again make available previously outofprint books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These paperback editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905
