A survey of modern algebra by
Garrett Birkhoff(
Book
)
188 editions published between 1941 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 2,733 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

Transport theory by Symposium in applied mathematics of the american mathematical society and the society for industrial and applied mathematics(
Book
)
15 editions published in 1969 in English and Undetermined and held by 365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The volume is a collection of the methods and results of a number of experts in the field of transport theory. There are four main parts: analytical Neutron Transport; Numerical Neutron Transport; Stochastic Aspects; Kinetic Theory and Plasma Transport. Each part contains four expository accounts of recent developments. These papers provide an excellent and comprehensive survey of the current state of transport theory and should serve as a stimulus for research in this field
