Theory of games and economic behavior by John Von Neumann( Book )

254 editions published between 1944 and 2009 in 5 languages and held by 3,221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1944, this book, co-written by an economist & a mathematician, conceived a groundbreaking theory of economic & social organisation based on a theory of games of strategy. The result was a revolution in economics & game theory has since emerged as a major tool of analysis in many other fields
Mathematical foundations of quantum mechanics by John Von Neumann( Book )

126 editions published between 1932 and 2018 in 4 languages and held by 1,812 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Es gibt einige Bücher, die die naturwissenschaftliche Welt verändert haben: John von Neumanns Buch über die Quantenmechanik gehört dazu! Mit dieser richtungsweisenden Studie legte er den Grundstein für seine späteren, weltberühmten Arbeiten in den USA. Das Buch ist nicht nur von historischem Interesse, sondern kann immer noch als elementare Einführung in die Grundbegiffe der Quantenmechanik mit Gewinn studiert werden. Seine besondere Stärke ist die Verbindung zwischen physikalischer Idee und mathematischer Exaktheit. Ein Gewinn für jeden Leser aus den Bereichen Mathematik und Physik - schon ab dem 4. Semester
The computer and the brain by John Von Neumann( Book )

118 editions published between 1900 and 2012 in 7 languages and held by 1,791 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book represents the view of one of the greatest mathematicians of the twentieth century on the analogies between computing machines and the living human brain. John von Neumann concludes that the brain operates in part digitally, in part analogically, but uses a peculiar statistical language unlike that employed in the operation of man-made computers. This edition includes a new foreword by two eminent figures in the fields of philosophy, neuroscience, and consciousness, Paul M. Churchland and Patricia S. Churchland."--Jacket
Continuous geometry by John Von Neumann( Book )

37 editions published between 1936 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 800 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his work on rings of operators in Hilbert space, John von Neumann discovered a new mathematical structure that resembled the lattice system Ln. In characterizing its properties, von Neumann founded the field of continuous geometry. This book, based on von Neumann's lecture notes, begins with the development of the axioms of continuous geometry, dimension theory, and--for the irreducible case--the function D(a). The properties of regular rings are then discussed, and a variety of results are presented for lattices that are continuous geometries, for which irreducibility is not assumed. For students and researchers interested in ring theory or projective geometries, this book is required reading

"The Computer and the Brain" war der Titel von John von Neumanns letzter hinterlassener Arbeit, in der er den wechselseitigen Beziehungen zwischen der Rechenmaschine und dem menschlichen Denk- und Nervensystem nachgeht. Diese Arbeit gibt ein zusammengefaßtes Zeugnis seiner eindringlichen und unorthodoxen Denkweise. John von Neumann gilt heute als einer der Pioniere der modernen Rechentechnik

Operator algebras, quantization, and non-commutative geometry : a centennial celebration honoring John von Neumann and Marshall H. Stone : AMS special session on operator algebras, quantization, and non-commutative geometry, a centennial celebration honoring John von Neumann and Marshall H. Stone, January 15-16, 2003, Baltimore, Maryland by Quantization, and Noncommutative Geometry AMS Special Session on Operator Algebras( Book )

15 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"John von Neumann and Marshall Stone were two giants of Twentieth Century mathematics. In honor of the 100th anniversary of their births, a mathematical celebration was organized featuring developments in fields where both men were major influences." "This volume contains articles from the AMS Special Session, Operator Algebras, Quantization and Noncommutative Geometry: A Centennial Celebration in Honor of John von Neumann and Marshall H. Stone. Papers range from expository and historical surveys to original research articles. All articles were carefully refereed and cover a broad range of mathematical topics reflecting the fundamental ideas of von Neumann and Stone." "The book is suitable for graduate students and researchers interested in operator algebras and applications, including noncommutative geometry."--BOOK JACKET
Geometry of complex domains : a seminar conducted by Professors Oswald Veblen and John Von Neumann, 1935-36. by Oswald Veblen( Book )

The Neumann compendium by John Von Neumann( Book )

9 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After three decades since the first nearly complete edition of John von Neumann's papers, this book is a valuable selection of those papers and excerpts of his books that are most characteristic of his activity, and reveal that of his continuous influence. The results receiving the 1994 Nobel Prizes in economy deeply rooted in Neumann's game theory are only minor traces of his exceptionally broad spectrum of creativity and stimulation. The book is organized by the specific subjects-quantum mechanics, ergodic theory, operator algebra, hydrodynamics, economics, computers, science and society. In addition, one paper which was written in German will be translated and published in English for the first time. The sections are introduced by short explanatory notes with an emphasis on recent developments based on von Neumann's contributions. An overall picture is provided by Ulam's, one of his most intimate partners in thinking, 1958 memorial lecture. Facsimilae and translations of some of his personal letters and a newly completed bibliography based on von Neumann's own careful compilation are added

Modeling and computations in dynamical systems : in commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the birth of John von Neumann by Eusebius Doedel( Book )

12 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 93 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Hungarian born mathematical genius, John von Neumann, was undoubtedly one of the greatest and most influential scientific minds of the 20th century. Von Neumann made fundamental contributions to Computing and he had a keen interest in Dynamical Systems, specifically Hydrodynamic Turbulence. This book, offering a state-of-the-art collection of papers in computational dynamical systems, is dedicated to the memory of von Neumann. Including contributions from J E Marsden, P J Holmes, M Shub, A Iserles, M Dellnitz and J Guckenheimer, this book offers a unique combination of theoretical and appl
