Algebra and tiling : homomorphisms in the service of geometry by
Sherman K Stein(
)
18 editions published between 1994 and 2014 in English and held by 1,420 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Carus Mathematical Monographs are an expression of the desire of Mrs. Mary Hegeler Carus and of her son, Dr. Edward H. Carus, to contribute to the dissemination of mathematical knowledge by making accessible at nominal cost a series of expository presentations of the best thoughts and keenest researches in pure and applied mathematics. The publication of the first four of these monographs was made possible by Mrs. Carus as sole trustee of the Edward C. Hegeler Trust Fund. The sales from these have resulted in the Carus Monograph Fund, and the Mathematical Association of America has used this as a revolving book fund to publish the succeeding monographs. The expositions of mathematical subjects that the monographs contain are set forth in a manner comprehensible not only to teachers and students specializing in mathematics, but also to scientific workers in other fields. More generally, the monographs are intended for the wide circle of thoughtful people familiar with basic graduate or advanced undergraduate mathematics, encountered in the study of mathematics itself or in the context of related disciplines, who wish to extend their knowledge without prolonged and critical study of the mathematical journals and treatises.  from dust jacket

How the other half thinks : adventures in mathematical reasoning by
Sherman K Stein(
)
19 editions published between 2001 and 2016 in English and Japanese and held by 1,211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Math enthusiasts aren't necessarily the numbercrunching geeks we tend to assume. In fact, they know that math is about much more than numbers; it is a profoundly philosophical endeavor, as well as a stimulating mental exercise. In How the Other Half Thinks, Sherman Stein emphasizes the creative element of mathematics by exploring some significant mathematical discoveries through simple, intuitive manipulations. With an ingenious technie that uses no algebra or trigonometry, and only a minimum of arithmetic, Stein takes us through the thought process behind some of math's great discoveries and applications. Each chapter begins with a simple question about strings made up of the letters a and b, which leads to other, more profound questions. Along the way, we become familiar with concepts from such fields as topology and probability, and learn how they have led to applications such as codes and radar, computing, and even baseball statistics. Recreational and instructive, How the Other Half Thinks will appeal to diehard math enthusiasts (of which there are many) as well as those "rightbrainers" who are looking for a way to understand and enjoy math

Archimedes : what did he do besides cry eureka? by
Sherman K Stein(
Book
)
13 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 1,034 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Many people have heard of two things about Archimedes: he was the greatest mathematician of antiquity and he ran from his bath crying, "Eureka, eureka!" few of us, layperson or mathematician are familiar with the accomplishments on which his reputation rests. This book answers the questions by describing in detail his astonishing accomplishments: how he developed the theory of the lever and the center of gravity; how he used the center of gravity to study whether a floating object would tip over; how he summed a geometric series and the squares; and how he found the volume and surface area of a sphere. His ability to do so much with the few tools at his disposal is astonishing.  Publisher

The world around us. And while the relevance of math to everyday life is emphasized, the author's lively survey of such intriguing concepts as "hot" and "cool" numbers, as well as brainteasers like the puzzle of the Egyptian rope, make Strength in Numbers rich reading. With his engaging style, Stein offers a new appreciation for the amazing properties of mathematics, from the beauty of its logic ("as inevitable and memorable as a Mozart symphony") to its power and
