Indiscrete thoughts by
GianCarlo Rota(
Book
)
88 editions published between 1986 and 2008 in 4 languages and held by 1,514 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Indiscrete Thoughts gives a glimpse into a world that has seldom been described, that of science and technology as seen through the eyes of a mathematician. The era covered by this book, 1950 to 1990, was surely one of the golden ages of science as well as of the American university. Cherished myths are debunked along the way as GianCarlo Rota takes pleasure in portraying, warts and all, some of the great scientific personalities of the period "Stanislav Ulam (who, together with Edward Teller, signed the patent application for the hydrogen bomb), Solomon Lefschetz (Chairman in the 1950s of the Princeton mathematics department), William Feller (one of the founders of modern probability theory), Jack Schwartz (one of the founders of computer science), and many others. Rota is not afraid of controversy. Some readers may even consider these essays indiscreet. After the publication of the essay "The Pernicious Influence of Mathematics upon Philosophy" (reprinted six times in five languages) the author was blacklisted in analytical philosophy circles. Indiscrete Thoughts should become an instant classic and the subject of debate for decades to come. "Read Indiscrete Thoughts for its account of the way we were and what we have become; for its sensible advice and its exuberant rhetoric."The Mathematical Intelligencer "Learned, thoughtprovoking, politically incorrect, delighting in paradox, and likely to offend"but everywhere readable and entertaining."The American Mathematical Monthly "It is about mathematicians, the way they think, and the world in which they live. It is 260 pages of Rota calling it like he sees it ... Readers are bound to find his observations amusing if not insightful. GianCarlo Rota has written the sort of book that few mathematicians could write. What will appeal immediately to anyone with an interest in research mathematics are the stories he tells about the practice of modern mathematics."MAA Reviews

GianCarlo Rota on combinatorics : introductory papers and commentaries by
GianCarlo Rota(
Book
)
9 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In this volume, the editor, Joseph Kung, presents reprints of most of the fundamental papers of GianCarlo Rota in the classical core of combinatorics. These include Part I, III, IV, VI, and VII of the Foundation series on Mobius function, polynomials of binomial type, counting in vector spaces, generating functions, and symmetric functions. Also reprinted are papers which are derived or related to the themes explored in these central papers." "Rota's work, starting with the paper On the Foundations of Combinatorial Theory I. Theory of Mobius Functions (1964) has revolutionized the way we approach combinatorics; this volume is intended to be an introduction to his way of thinking about that subject. Joseph Kung has provided us with a substantial amount of new material on the tremendous impact that Rota's papers have had on combinatorics. Extensive survey articles are included in every chapter to guide the reader, both to the reprinted papers and to the works of others which have been inspired by these papers. And, there are four prefatory essays describing Rota's special influence on combinatorics, particularly at the historical Bowdoin conference in 1970." "This volume will be of interest to experts as well as beginning graduate students (particularly as a source of research problems)."Jacket
