Glimpses of algebra and geometry by Gábor Tóth( Book )

45 editions published between 1899 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 1,185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The purpose of Glimpses of Algebra and Geometry is to fill a gap between undergraduate and graduate mathematics studies. It is one of the few undergraduate texts to explore the subtle and sometimes puzzling connections between number theory, classical geometry, and modern algebra in a clear and easily understandable style. Over 160 computer-generated images, accessible to readers via the World Wide Web, facilitate an understanding of mathematical concepts and proofs even further." "Glimpses will appeal to students who wish to learn modern mathematics, but have few prerequisite courses, and to high school teachers who always had a keen interest in mathematics, but seldom the time to pursue background technicalities. Even postgraduate mathematicians will enjoy being able to browse through a number of mathematical disciplines in one sitting."--Jacket
Finite Möbius groups, minimal immersions of spheres, and moduli by Gábor Tóth( Book )

17 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and German and held by 331 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""Spherical soap bubbles," isometric minimal immersions of round spheres into round spheres, or spherical minimal immersions for short, belong to a fast-growing and fascinating area between algebra and geometry. This theory has rich interconnections with a variety of mathematical disciplines such as invariant theory, convex geometry, harmonic maps, and orthogonal multiplications. In this book, the author traces the development of the study of spherical minimal immersions over the past 30-plus years, including Takahashi's 1966 proof regarding the existence of isometric minimal immersions, DoCarmo and Wallach's study of the uniqueness of the standard minimal immersion in the seventies, and the more recent study of the variety of spherical minimal immersions that have been obtained by the "equivariant construction" as SU(2)-orbits, first used by Mashimo in 1984 and then later by DeTurck and Ziller in 1992. In trying to make this monograph accessible not just to research mathematicians but to mathematics graduate students as well, the author included sizeable pieces of material from upper-level undergraduate courses, additional graduate-level topics such as Felix Klein's classic treatise of the icosahedron, and a valuable selection of exercises at the end of each chapter."--Jacket
Measures of symmetry for convex sets and stability by Gábor Tóth( )

15 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This textbook treats two important and related matters in convex geometry: the quantification of symmetry of a convex set?measures of symmetry?and the degree to which convex sets that nearly minimize such measures of symmetry are themselves nearly symmetric?the phenomenon of stability. By gathering the subject?s core ideas and highlights around Grünbaum?s general notion of measure of symmetry, it paints a coherent picture of the subject, and guides the reader from the basics to the state-of-the-art. The exposition takes various paths to results in order to develop the reader?s grasp of the unity of ideas, while interspersed remarks enrich the material with a behind-the-scenes view of corollaries and logical connections, alternative proofs, and allied results from the literature. Numerous illustrations elucidate definitions and key constructions, and over 70 exercises?with hints and references for the more difficult ones?test and sharpen the reader?s comprehension. The presentation includes: a basic course covering foundational notions in convex geometry, the three pillars of the combinatorial theory (the theorems of Carathéodory, Radon, and Helly), critical sets and Minkowski measure, the Minkowski?Radon inequality, and, to illustrate the general theory, a study of convex bodies of constant width; two proofs of F. John?s ellipsoid theorem; a treatment of the stability of Minkowski measure, the Banach?Mazur metric, and Groemer?s stability estimate for the Brunn?Minkowski inequality; important specializations of Grünbaum?s abstract measure of symmetry, such as Winternitz measure, the Rogers?Shepard volume ratio, and Guo?s Lp -Minkowski measure; a construction by the author of a new sequence of measures of symmetry, the kth mean Minkowski measure; and lastly, an intriguing application to the moduli space of certain distinguished maps from a Riemannian homogeneous space to spheres?illustrating the broad mathematical relevance of the book?s subject
Structure elucidation by modern NMR : a workbook by H Duddeck( Book )

13 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the last few years, routine applications of NMR techniques have been further developed. Spectrometers of the latest generation offer new types of experiments, such as spinlock and inverse-detected methods. In this third, revised and expanded edition, new methodology is introduced and incorporated into new exercises. In addition, a new chapter has been introduced which demonstrates the fully detailed interpretation of two typical examples

10 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book discusses the theoretical and practical issues of glaciokarsts. After a research history, a general description of glaciokarsts is provided. Thereafter, the glacial erosion on karst, the karstic features of glaciokarsts, the development of these features, the karstic zones of glaciokarsts, surface development of glaciokarsts, case studies on glaciokarsts and an overview of the glaciokarsts of the Earth are presented
New trends in intuitive geometry by Gergely Ambrus( )

This volume contains 17 surveys that cover many recent developments in Discrete Geometry and related fields. Besides presenting the state-of-the-art of classical research subjects like packing and covering, it also offers an introduction to new topological, algebraic and computational methods in this very active research field. The readers will find a variety of modern topics and many fascinating open problems that may serve as starting points for research
Elements of mathematics : a problem-centered approach to history and foundations by Gábor Tóth( )

8 editions published in 2021 in English and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This textbook offers a rigorous presentation of mathematics before the advent of calculus. Fundamental concepts in algebra, geometry, and number theory are developed from the foundations of set theory along an elementary, inquiry-driven path. Thought-provoking examples and challenging problems inspired by mathematical contests motivate the theory, while frequent historical asides reveal the story of how the ideas were originally developed. Beginning with a thorough treatment of the natural numbers via Peano's axioms, the opening chapters focus on establishing the natural, integral, rational, and real number systems. Plane geometry is introduced via Birkhoff's axioms of metric geometry, and chapters on polynomials traverse arithmetical operations, roots, and factoring multivariate expressions. An elementary classification of conics is given, followed by an in-depth study of rational expressions. Exponential, logarithmic, and trigonometric functions complete the picture, driven by inequalities that compare them with polynomial and rational functions. Axioms and limits underpin the treatment throughout, offering not only powerful tools, but insights into non-trivial connections between topics. Elements of Mathematics is ideal for students seeking a deep and engaging mathematical challenge based on elementary tools. Whether enhancing the early undergraduate curriculum for high achievers, or constructing a reflective senior capstone, instructors will find ample material for enquiring mathematics majors. No formal prerequisites are assumed beyond high school algebra, making the book ideal for mathematics circles and competition preparation. Readers who are more advanced in their mathematical studies will appreciate the interleaving of ideas and illuminating historical details
