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 manmade 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, andfor the irreducible casethe 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 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 subjectsquantum 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
