The first contribution by Hans Schneider is devoted to Luther's journey to Rome, which he undertook while he was still an Augustine monk. In the second article, Ludwig Uhlig studies the largely unexplored anthropological work of Georg Forster. The contribution by Karin Reich focuses on a long-lost essay by Euler, which was rediscovered in 2009. It has been reproduced here in facsimile and subsequently transcribed and analyzed. Werner Lehfeldt's contribution traces the history of Gauss's interest in the Russian language, based on hitherto unresearched documents.

This book treats the maturation process for a mathematics student. It describes and analyzes how a student develops from a neophyte who can manipulate simple arithmetic problems to a sophisticated thinker who can understand abstract concepts, think rigorously, and analyze and manipulate proofs. Most importantly, the mature mathematics student can create proofs and know when the proofs that he/she has created are correct. -- from Back Cover.

In this volume are included all of Gauss's number-theoretic works: his masterpiece, Disquisitiones Arithmeticae, published when Gauss was only 25 years old; several papers published during the ensuing 31 years; and papers taken from material found in Gauss's handwriting after his death. These papers include a fourth, fifth, and sixth proof of the Quadratic Reciprocity Law, researches on biquadratic residues, quadratic forms, and other topics. This reprint of the German translation from Latin of the second edition published in 1889 includes an extensive appendix and concludes with a commentary on the papers (with references, where appropriate, to the relevant pages of the Disquisitiones).

This is a collection of gems from the literature of mathematics that shine as brightly today as when they first appeared in print. They deserve to be seen and admired.The selections include two opposing views on the purpose of mathematics, The Strong Law of Small Numbers, the treatment of calculus in the 1771 Encyclopaedia Britannica, several proofs that the number of legs on a horse is infinite, a deserved refutation of the ridiculous Euler-Diderot anecdote, the real story of p and the Indiana Legislature, the reason why Theodorus stopped proving that square roots were irrational when he to the square root of 17, an excerpt from Mathematics Made Difficult, a glimpse into the mind of a calculating prodigy.There will be something of interest here for almost anyone interested in mathematics.Underwood Dudley is the bestselling author of several MAA books: Mathematical Cranks, Numerology, and the Trisectors. He has an Erdos number of 1.

Quantenphysik in der Nanowelt

Das Buch behandelt die wesentlichen Aspekte der nichtrelativistischen Quantenphysik bis hin zur Quantisierung von Feldern. Der Autor stellt modernste Experimente, vor allem auf dem Gebiet der Nanoelektronik vor und zeigt den Bezug zu anderen wichtigen Feldern wie Elementarteilchenphysik und Kernspintomographie auf. Wegen der geringen Voraussetzungen, die auf dem Gebiet der komplexen Mathematik verlangt werden, eignet sich das Buch als Einführung in das Gebiet der Quantenphysik – ob für Naturwissenschaftler, Ingenieure, Informatiker oder Philosophen.

Jahrtausendelang war für uns Menschen das eigene Universum so unbegreiflich, dass der Gedanke an andere Welten unvorstellbar war. Erst die moderne Physik mit der Theorie der Multiversen schuf die Voraussetzung, andere, neue Universen zu beschreiben, wie sie nach den Gesetzen der Physik möglich sind. John Barrow zeigt uns die bislang entdeckten Lösungen für Einsteins Universumsgleichung in diesem faszinierenden Buch: rotierende und unberechenbare, sich aufblähende und schrumpfende, heiße und kalte, bucklige und glatte, flache Universen und solche mit einem Loch in der Mitte, Universen voller Leben und Universen, die plötzlich aufhören zu existieren. Eine spektakuläre Reise in die fantastischen Welten der modernen Kosmologie – und an die Grenzen unseres eigenen Vorstellungsvermögens.

Trieste Publishing has a massive catalogue of classic book titles. Our aim is to provide readers with the highest quality reproductions of fiction and non-fiction literature that has stood the test of time. The many thousands of books in our collection have been sourced from libraries and private collections around the world.The titles that Trieste Publishing has chosen to be part of the collection have been scanned to simulate the original. Our readers see the books the same way that their first readers did decades or a hundred or more years ago. Books from that period are often spoiled by imperfections that did not exist in the original. Imperfections could be in the form of blurred text, photographs, or missing pages. It is highly unlikely that this would occur with one of our books. Our extensive quality control ensures that the readers of Trieste Publishing's books will be delighted with their purchase. Our staff has thoroughly reviewed every page of all the books in the collection, repairing, or if necessary, rejecting titles that are not of the highest quality. This process ensures that the reader of one of Trieste Publishing's titles receives a volume that faithfully reproduces the original, and to the maximum degree possible, gives them the experience of owning the original work.We pride ourselves on not only creating a pathway to an extensive reservoir of books of the finest quality, but also providing value to every one of our readers. Generally, Trieste books are purchased singly - on demand, however they may also be purchased in bulk. Readers interested in bulk purchases are invited to contact us directly to enquire about our tailored bulk rates.
