First Concepts of Topology (New Mathematical Library)

Buy
This book is one of a series written by professional mathematicians in order to make some important mathematical ideas interesting and understandable to a large audience of high school students and laymen. Most of the volumes in the New Mathematical Library cover topics not usually included in the high school curriculum; they vary in difficulty, and, even within a single book. some parts require a greater degree of concentration than others. Thus, while the reader needs little technical knowledge to understand most of these books, he will have to make an intellectual effort.

If the reader has so far encountered mathematics only in classroom work. he should keep in mind that a book on mathematics cannot be read quickly. Nor must he expect to understand all parts of the book on first reading. He should feel free to skip complicated parts and return to them later; often an argument will be clarified by a subsequent remark. On the other band, sections containing thoroughly familiar material may be read very quickly.

The best way to learn mathematics is to do mathematics, and each book includes problems, some of which may require considerable thought. The reader is urged to acquire the habit of reading with paper and pencil in hand; in this way mathematics will become increasingly meaningful to him.

The authors and editorial committee are interested in reactions to the books in this series and hope that readers will write to: Anneli Lax, Editor,. New Mathematical Library, NEW YORK UNIVERSITY, THE COURANT INSTITUTE OF MATHEMATICAL ScIENCES. 251 Mercer Street. New York, N. Y. 10012.

The Child's Creation of A Pictorial World
A decade has passed since the publication of the first edition of The Child's Creation of a Pictorial World, and it seemed time to reassess the status of child art and review studies that were published in the intervening years.

Mind, Matter and the Implicate Order (The Frontiers Collection)
Mind, Matter and the Implicate Order (The Frontiers Collection)
Quantum theory predicts experimental results brilliantly but simultaneously raises difficult conceptual issues. Paradoxes such as Schrödinger’s cat, the EPR paradox, or the nonlocality demanded by Bell’s inequalities have hampered philosophers in their attempts to include quantum theory when discussing the relation between mind and...

On Law and Reason (Law and Philosophy Library)
This is an outline of a coherence theory of law. Its basic ideas are: reasonable support and weighing of reasons. All the rest is commentary.

These words at the beginning of the preface of this book perfectly indicate what On Law and Reason is about. It is a theory about the nature of the law which emphasises the role of reason in the law and...

The Greatest Comets in History: Broom Stars and Celestial Scimitars (Astronomers' Universe)
The Greatest Comets of History is unique. There are a few books on comets that make passing reference to some of the famous and spectacular objects of earlier years, and a few descriptive catalogues are available, but little detailed descriptive information is contained in either of these sources. This book fills the vacant niche that exists...
