The gentle art of mathematics by
Daniel Pedoe(
Book
)
68 editions published between 1958 and 2012 in English and held by 1,066 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Professor Dan Pedoe uses a variety of practical applications and puzzles in taking a pleasantly lighthearted look at today's mathematical trends. He is comfortable illuminating such dark mysteries as the notion of infinity, the laws of probability and the algebra of classes. Yet he is equally happy clearing up such puzzling sideissues as how to take off your vest without first taking off your jacket, the twelvecoin problem, and what Newton told Pepys about dicethrowing. In nine chapters on an equal number of subjects, the author introduces mathematical games, including the use of the binary system ijn winning at Nim; chance and choice, with a method of calculating your odds of winning; where does it end, including the question  which is larger, the class of all integers or the class of all odd integers; automatic thinking, or mathematical logic; twoway stretch, an introduction to topology; rules of play, or how the laws of algebra work; an accountant's nightmare, with more problems of irrational numbers and infinity; and, double talk, or tricks with logic. Throughout there are a number of practical examples and a number of problems that you can try on your friends. What is more, the problems in the book work closely to give you a good understanding of modern mathematical thought. For those who have finished high school algebra and want to know more about what mathematics has to offer, The Gentle Art of Mathematics will be a good introduction to more advanced study in the field.For those who just want to be entertained or to tease their brains with mathematical problems, this book offers a great amount of material for mental stimulation.  from back cover

Methods of algebraic geometry by
W. V. D Hodge(
Book
)
63 editions published between 1946 and 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 820 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This work provides a lucid and rigorous account of the foundations of modern algebraic geometry. The authors have confined themselves to fundamental concepts and geometrical methods, and do not give detailed developments of geometrical properties, but geometrical meaning has been emphasised throughout. This first volume is divided into two parts. The first is devoted to pure algebra; the basic notions, the theory of matrices over a noncommutative ground field and a study of algebraic equations. The second part is concerned with the definitions and basic properties of projective space in n dimensions. It concludes with a purely algebraic account of collineations and correlations. The other two volumes of Hodge and Pedoe's classic work are also available. Together, these books give an insight into algebraic geometry that is unique and unsurpassed

Circles : a mathematical view by
Daniel Pedoe(
Book
)
35 editions published between 1957 and 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 611 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This revised edition of a mathematical classic originally published in 1957 will bring to a new generation of students the enjoyment of investigating that simplest of mathematical figures, the circle. As a concession to the general neglect of geometry in school and college curricula, however, the author has supplemented this new edition with a chapter 0 designed to introduce readers to the special vocabulary of circle concepts with which the author could assume his readers of two generations ago were familiar. For example, Pedoe carefully explains what is meant by the circumcircle, incircle, and excircles of a triangle as well as the circumcentre, incentre, and otrthocentre. The reader can then understand his discussion in Chapter 1 of the ninepoint circle, and of Feuerbach's theorem. As an appendix, Pedoe includes a biographical article by Laura Guggenbuhl on Karl Wilhelm Feuerbach, a littleknown mathematician with a tragically short life, who published his theorem in a slender geometric treatise in 1822. Readers of Circles need only be armed with paper, pencil, compass and straightedge to find great pleasure in following the constructions and theorems. Those who think that geometry using Euclidean tools died out with the ancient Greeks will be pleasantly surprised to learn many interesting results which were only discovered in modern time. And those who think that they learned all they needed to know about circles in high school will find much to enlighten them in chapters dealing with the representation of a circle by a point in threespace, a model for nonEuclidean geometry, and isoperimetric property of the circle.  from back cover

Methods of algebraic geometry by
W. V. D Hodge(
Book
)
29 editions published between 1952 and 1994 in English and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This work provides a lucid and rigorous account of the foundations of modern algebraic geometry. The authors have confined themselves to fundamental concepts and geometrical methods, and do not give detailed developments of geometrical properties but geometrical meaning has been emphasised throughout. Volume 2 gives an account of the principal methods used in developing a theory of algebraic varieties in spaces of n dimensions. Applications of these methods are also given to some of the more important varieties which occur in projective geometry. The ground field is without characteristic. Since geometry over any field without characteristic conforms to the general pattern of geometry over the field of complex numbers, a sound algebraic basis for classical geometry is provided. The other two volumes of Hodge and Pedoe's classic work are also available. Together, these books give an insight into algebraic geometry that is unique and unsurpassed

Methods of algebraic geometry by
W. V. D Hodge(
)
9 editions published between 1954 and 1994 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This work provides a lucid and rigorous account of the foundations of algebraic geometry. The authors have confined themselves to fundamental concepts and geometrical methods, and do not give detailed developments of geometrical properties but geometrical meaning has been emphasised throughout. Here in this volume, the authors have again confined their attention to varieties defined on a ground field without characteristic. In order to familiarize the reader with the different techniques available to algebraic geometers, they have not confined themselves to one method and on occasion have deliberately used more advanced methods where elementary ones would serve, when by so doing it has been possible to illustrate the power of the more advanced techniques, such as valuation theory. The other two volumes of Hodge and Pedoe's classic work are also available. Together, these books give an insight into algebraic geometry that is unique and unsurpassed
