A Mathematical Tapestry: Demonstrating the Beautiful Unity of Mathematics

Buy

This easy-to-read book demonstrates how a simple geometric idea reveals fascinating connections and results in number theory, the mathematics of polyhedra, combinatorial geometry, and group theory. Using a systematic paper-folding procedure it is possible to construct a regular polygon with any number of sides. This remarkable algorithm has led to interesting proofs of certain results in number theory, has been used to answer combinatorial questions involving partitions of space, and has enabled the authors to obtain the formula for the volume of a regular tetrahedron in around three steps, using nothing more complicated than basic arithmetic and the most elementary plane geometry. All of these ideas, and more, reveal the beauty of mathematics and the interconnectedness of its various branches. Detailed instructions, including clear illustrations, enable the reader to gain hands-on experience constructing these models and to discover for themselves the patterns and relationships they unearth.

Dynamical Systems and Fractals: Computer Graphics Experiments with Pascal
Dynamical Systems and Fractals: Computer Graphics Experiments with Pascal
This study of chaos, fractals and complex dynamics is intended for anyone familiar with computers. While keeping the mathematics to a simple level with few formulas, the reader is introduced to an area of current scientific research that was scarcely possible until the availability of computers. The book is divided into two main parts; the...
Spinning the Semantic Web: Bringing the World Wide Web to Its Full Potential
Spinning the Semantic Web: Bringing the World Wide Web to Its Full Potential

The Semantic Web is the realization of an aspect of the Web that was part of the original hopes and dreams of 1989, but whose development has, until now, taken a back seat to the Web of multimedia human-readable material. Even though at the first WWW conference, in 1994, I ended my talk with a few slides about the Semantic Web, the steps...

Bacteriology of Humans: An Ecological Perspective
Bacteriology of Humans: An Ecological Perspective
Until recently, the indigenous microbiota of humans has been a relatively neglected area of microbiology with most attention being focused on those microbes that cause disease in humans, rather than on those that co-exist with us in the disease-free state. However, in the past decade research has shown that not only is the indigenous microbiota...

Circuit Design and Simulation with VHDL
Circuit Design and Simulation with VHDL

This text offers a comprehensive treatment of VHDL and its applications to the design and simulation of real, industry-standard circuits. It focuses on the use of VHDL rather than solely on the language, showing why and how certain types of circuits are inferred from the language constructs and how any of the four simulation categories can be...

Neutrino Oscillations: Present Status and Future Plans
Neutrino Oscillations: Present Status and Future Plans
This book reviews the status of a very exciting field -- neutrino oscillations -- at a very important time. The fact that neutrinos have mass has only been proved in the last few years and the acceptance of that fact has opened up a whole new area of study to understand the fundamental parameters of the mixing matrix.

The book summarizes the...

Emerging Pathologies in Cardiology: Proceedings of the Mediterranean Cardiology Meeting 2005

Clinical practice is evolving at a rapid pace,nowhere more so than in the field of cardiology.Acute Coronary Syndromes, Sudden Cardiac Death, Heart Failure, Atrial Fibrillation,Syncope,and Prevention of Global Cardiovascular Risk are the main Emerging Pathologies to which many investigators are addressing their researches. Less than 10 years...
