The new mathematics by
Irving Adler(
Book
)
85 editions published between 1958 and 1977 in 6 languages and held by 1,469 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book reveals that the concepts of advanced mathematics lie hidden in the elementary mathematics we all learned in school. The author brings these concepts out of their hiding places as he traces the steps by which our number system has grown from the ordinary whole we use for counting, through integers, rational numbers, and real numbers, to the complex numbers with which the electrical engineer describes an alternating current. In this way, he shows the familiar origin of such unfamiliar concepts and terms of the new mathematics as groups, rings, fields, vector spaces, algebras, homomorphisms, isomorphisms, and homeomorphisms."

Irving Adler(
Book
)
35 editions published between 1961 and 1974 in English and held by 949 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In spite of radical changes in computer technology, the underlying principles of computer design and use remain the same. The core revisions in this text explain the significances of recent developments. One of the chapters describes advances in computer design and use. The other is devoted to programming and program languages

A new look at geometry by
Irving Adler(
Book
)
23 editions published between 1966 and 2013 in English and held by 854 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This richly detailed overview surveys the development and evolution of geometrical ideas and concepts from ancient times to the present. In addition to the relationship between physical and mathematical spaces, it examines the interactions of geometry, algebra, and calculus. The text proves many significant theorems and employs several important techniques. Chapters on nonEuclidean geometry and projective geometry form brief, selfcontained treatments. More than 100 exercises with answers and 200 diagrams illuminate the text. Teachers, students (particularly those majoring in mathematics education), and mathematically minded readers will appreciate this outstanding exploration of the role of geometry in the development of Western scientific thought.
