An essay on the psychology of invention in the mathematical field by
Jacques Hadamard(
Book
)
141 editions published between 1945 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 2,100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Fifty years ago when Jacques Hadamard set out to explore how mathematicians invent new ideas, he considered the creative experiences of some of the greatest thinkers of his generation, such as George Polya, Claude LeviStrauss, and Albert Einstein. It appeared that inspiration could strike anytime, particularly after an individual had worked hard on a problem for days and then turned attention to another activity. In exploring this phenomenon, Hadamard produced one of the most famous and cogent cases for the existence of unconscious mental processes in mathematical invention and other forms of creativity

Lectures on Cauchy's problem in linear partial differential equations by
Jacques Hadamard(
Book
)
44 editions published between 1923 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 670 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Would well repay study by most theoretical physicists. Physics Today An overwhelming influence on subsequent work on the wave equation. Science Progress One of the classical treatises on hyperbolic equations. Royal Naval Scientific Service Delivered at Columbia University and the Universities of Rome and Zurich, these lectures represent a pioneering investigation. Jacques Hadamard based his research on prior studies by Riemann, Kirchhoff, and Volterra. He extended and improved Volterra's work, applying its theories relating to spherical and cylindrical waves to all normal hyperbolic equations instead of only to one. Topics include the general properties of Cauchy's problem, the fundamental formula and the elementary solution, equations with an odd number of independent variables, and equations with an even number of independent variables and the method of descent

Lessons in geometry by
Jacques Hadamard(
Book
)
115 editions published between 1898 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 394 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This is a book in the tradition of Euclidean synthetic geometry written by one of the twentieth century's great mathematicians. The original audience was precollege teachers, but it is useful as well to gifted high school students and college students, in particular, to mathematics majors interested in geometry from a more advanced standpoint. The text starts where Euclid starts, and covers all the basics of plane Euclidean geometry. But this text does much more. It is at once pleasingly classic and surprisingly modern. The problems (more than 450 of them) are wellsuited to exploration using the modern tools of dynamic geometry software. For this reason, the present edition includes a CD of dynamic solutions to select problems, created using Texas Instruments' TINspire Learning Software. The TINspire documents demonstrate connections among problems and  through the free trial software included on the CD  will allow the reader to explore and interact with Hadamard's Geometry in new ways. The material also includes introductions to several advanced topics. The exposition is spare, giving only the minimal background needed for a student to explore these topics. Much of the value of the book lies in the problems, whose solutions open worlds to the engaged reader. And so this book is in the Socratic tradition, as well as the Euclidean, in that it demands of the reader both engagement and interaction. A forthcoming companion volume that includes solutions, extensions, and classroom activities related to the problems can only begin to open the treasures offered by this work. We are just fortunate that one of the greatest mathematical minds of recent times has made this effort to show to readers some of the opportunities that the intellectual tradition of Euclidean geometry has to offer."Jacket

NonEuclidean geometry in the theory of automorphic functions by
Jacques Hadamard(
Book
)
10 editions published between 1951 and 1999 in English and Russian and held by 280 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This is the English translation of a volume originally published only in Russian and now out of print. The book was written by Jacques Hadamard on the work of Poincare."BOOK JACKET. "Poincare's creation of a theory of automorphic functions in the early 1880s was one of the most significant mathematical achievements of the nineteenth century. It directly inspired the uniformization theorem, led to a class of functions adequate to solve all linear ordinary differential equations, and focused attention on a large new class of discrete groups. It was the first significant application of nonEuclidean geometry."Jacket
