  • Reverse Mathematics by John Stillwell
    Reverse Mathematics (English, Hardback) John Stillwell

    "This book presents reverse mathematics to a general mathematical audience for the first time. Reverse mathematics is a new field that answers some old questions. In the two thousand years that mathematicians have been deriving theorems from axioms, it has often been asked: which axioms are needed to prove a given theorem? Only in the last two hundred years have some of these questions been...

  • Great Circles by Emily Rolfe Grosholz
    Great Circles (English, Hardback) Emily Rolfe Grosholz

    This volume explores the interaction of poetry and mathematics by looking at analogies that link them. The form that distinguishes poetry from prose has mathematical structure (lifting language above the flow of time), as do the thoughtful ways in which poets bring the infinite into relation with the finite. The history of mathematics exhibits a dramatic narrative inspired by a kind of troping, as...
