Most widely held works by Garrett Birkhoff
A survey of modern algebra by Garrett Birkhoff( Book )

172 editions published between 1941 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 2,594 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
Ordinary differential equations by Garrett Birkhoff( Book )

94 editions published between 1959 and 2004 in 4 languages and held by 1,946 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate students
Algebra by Saunders Mac Lane( Book )

98 editions published between 1967 and 1999 in 6 languages and held by 1,784 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lattice theory by Garrett Birkhoff( Book )

136 editions published between 1940 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 1,565 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Like its elder sister group theory, lattice theory is a fruitful source of abstract concepts, common to traditionally unrelated branches of mathematics. Both subjects are based on postulates of an extremely simple and general nature. Lattice theory has become a recognized branch of modern algebra, with a steady flow of contributions to it from numerous mathematicians. This revised edition takes these contributions into account

A brief survey of modern algebra by Garrett Birkhoff( Book )

32 editions published between 1953 and 1967 in English and held by 364 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Transport theory by Symposium in Applied Mathematics( Book )

6 editions published in 1969 in English and Undetermined and held by 324 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
Elliptic problem solvers II by Garrett Birkhoff( Book )

16 editions published between 1984 and 2014 in English and Italian and held by 312 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Elliptic Problem Solvers, II covers the proceedings of the Elliptic Problem Solvers Conference, held at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, California from January 10 to 12, 1983. The book focuses on various aspects of the numerical solution of elliptic boundary value problems. The selection first offers information on building elliptic problem solvers with ELLPACK; presentation and evolution of the club module; and a fourth order accurate fast direct method for the Helmholtz equation. The text then examines the ITPACK project, CMMPAK, solving elliptic problems on an array proce
