A son of Africa : the slave narrative of Olaudah Equiano( Visual )

9 editions published between 1995 and 2013 in English and held by 537 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A docudrama based on the book, The interesting narrative of the life of Oloudah Equiano, or Gustavus Vaasa the African, which was the first influential slave autobiography. When it was published in 1789, it fueled a growing anti-slavery movement in the U.S. and England. This production employs dramatic reconstruction, archival material and interviews with scholars. Equiano's narrative begins in the West African village where he was kidnapped into slavery in 1756. He was shipped to a Virginia plantation and then later sold again to a British naval officer. Here he learned to read and write, became a skilled trader, eventually bought his freedom and married into English society where he became a leading abolitionist

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Examines the implications of Orrorin tugenensis, a group of six million year-old fossils found in the Tugen Hills of Kenya, which may shed light on the origins of humankind. Suggests that if the bones do belong to upright-walking, hominid creatures, then our current theories about the evolution of human beings may have to be rewritten. Also looks at new ideas about the development of upright walking in humans, which propose that bipedalism developed in the trees, not the open savannah

Solving the Pell equation by Michael Jacobson( Book )

4 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pell's equation is a very simple, yet fundamental Diophantine equation which is believed to have been known to mathematicians for over 2000 years. Because of its popularity, the Pell equation is often discussed in textbooks and recreational books concerning elementary number theory, but usually not in much depth. This book provides a modern and deeper approach to the problem of solving the Pell equation. The main component of this will be computational techniques, but in the process of deriving these it will be necessary to develop the corresponding theory. One objective of this book is to provide a less intimidating introduction for senior undergraduates and others with the same level of preparedness to the delights of algebraic number theory through the medium of a mathematical object that has fascinated people since the time of Archimedes. To achieve this, this work is made accessible to anyone with some knowledge of elementary number theory and abstract algebra. Many references and notes are provided for those who wish to follow up on various topics, and the authors also describe some rather surprising applications to cryptography. The intended audience is number theorists, both professional and amateur, and students, but we wish to emphasize that this is not intended to be a textbook; its focus is much too narrow for that. It could, however be used as supplementary reading for students enrolled in a second course in number theory
