Most widely held works by John Von Neumann
Theory of games and economic behavior by John Von Neumann( Book )

273 editions published between 1944 and 2009 in 6 languages and held by 4,080 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the classic work upon which modernday game theory is based. What began more than sixty years ago as a modest proposal that a mathematician and an economist write a short paper together blossomed, in 1944, when Princeton University Press published Theory of Games and Economic Behavior. In it, John von Neumann and Oskar Morgenstern conceived a groundbreaking mathematical theory of economic and social organization, based on a theory of games of strategy. Not only would this revolutionize economics, but the entirely new field of scientific inquiry it yielded -- game theory -- has since been widely used to analyze a host of real-world phenomena from arms races to optimal policy choices of presidential candidates, from vaccination policy to major league baseball salary negotiations. And it is today established throughout both the social sciences and a wide range of other sciences." "This sixtieth-anniversary edition includes not only the original text but also an introduction by Harold Kuhn, an afterword by Ariel Rubinstein, and contemporary reviews and articles on the book that appeared in the New York Times, The American Economic Review, and a variety of other publications. Together, these writings provide readers a matchless opportunity to more fully appreciate a work whose influence will yet resound for generations to come. Book jacket."--BOOK JACKET
The computer and the brain by John Von Neumann( Book )

76 editions published between 1900 and 2012 in 6 languages and held by 2,703 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
Mathematical foundations of quantum mechanics by John Von Neumann( Book )

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

16 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 1,692 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

Die Rechenmaschine und das Gehirn by John Von Neumann( Book )

29 editions published between 1960 and 2014 in German and English and held by 312 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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
Continuous geometries with a transition probability by John Von Neumann( Book )

18 editions published between 1891 and 1981 in English and held by 275 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Axioms where are motivated by quantum mechanics are formulated for a probability-logic system. It is shown that these axioms characterize precisely those lattices which are lattices of all projections in a irreducible von Neumann algebra of type II₁ or I[subscript]N, N [greater-than or equal to] 4 in Hilbert spaces of arbitrary dimension and real or complex scalars
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 )

19 editions published between 2004 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 255 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
Invariant measures by John Von Neumann( Book )

14 editions published between 1941 and 2017 in English and held by 241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Neumann compendium by John Von Neumann( Book )

10 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 162 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
Geometry of complex domains : a seminar conducted by Professors Oswald Veblen and John Von Neumann, 1935-36. by Oswald Veblen( Book )

Mathematical foundations of quantum mechanics by John Von Neumann( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Quantum mechanics was still in its infancy in 1932 when the young John von Neumann, who would go on to become one of the greatest mathematicians of the twentieth century, published 'Mathematical Foundations of Quantum Mechanics', a revolutionary work that for the first time provided a rigorous mathematical framework for the new science. Robert Beyer's 1955 English translation, which von Neumann reviewed and approved, is cited more frequently today than ever before. But its many treasures and insights were too often obscured by the limitations of the way the text and equations were set on the page. This new edition of this classic work has been completely reset in TeX, making the text and equations far easier to read
