Surface Topology, Firby, P. A. &  Cyril F. Gardiner
3 Firby, P. A. & Cyril F. Gardiner Surface Topology
West Sussex, England Ellis Horwood Ltd 1992 0138553211 / 9780138553210 Second Edition Softcover Very Good+ 
Card covers show very light shelf wear. ; A bright, solid book, card covers are clean and crisp , text unmarked.; Mathematics and Its Applications ; 9.75 X 6.75 X 0.50 inches; 222 pages; "This text examines the topology of compact surfaces through the development of some simple ideas in place geometry, an approach which allows a treatment of an area of mathematics that is particularly attractive both for the richness of its applications, and for the variety of its interactions with other branches of mathematics. A wide variety of topics are linked with surface topology, such as graph theory, group theory, vector field theory and plane Euclidean and non-Euclidean geometry. Each topic is treated from its beginnings, thus offering a bird's eye view of many branches of mathematics. The author's introductions are presented in simple terms and, for those who wish to extend their knowledge of the topics discussed, a bibliography is provided."

A Beginner's Guide to Constructing the Universe  The Mathematical Archetypes of Nature, Art, and Science, Schneider, Michael S.
5 Schneider, Michael S. A Beginner's Guide to Constructing the Universe The Mathematical Archetypes of Nature, Art, and Science
New York Harpercollins 1994 0060926716 / 9780060926717 First Paperback Edition; Fourth Printing Softcover Near Fine 
A bright, solid book, card covers are crisp and clean , text unmarked.; B&W Illustrations; 9 X 7.30 X 0.90 inches; 352 pages; "Michael Schneider leads us on a spectacular, lavishly illustrated journey along the numbers one through ten to explore the mathematical principles made visible in flowers, shells, crystals, plants, and the human body, expressed in the symbolic language of folk sayings and fairy tales, myth and religion, art and architecture. This is a new view of mathematics, not the one we learned at school but a comprehensive guide to the patterns that recur through the universe and underlie human affairs. A Beginner's Guide to Constructing, the Universe shows you: -Why cans, pizza, and manhole covers are round. -Why one and two weren't considered numbers by the ancient Greeks. -Why squares show up so often in goddess art and board games. -What property makes the spiral the most widespread shape in nature, from embryos and hair curls to hurricanes and galaxies. -How the human body shares the design of a bean plant and the solar system. -How a snowflake is like Stonehenge, and a beehive like a calendar. -How our ten fingers hold the secrets of both a lobster and a cathedral. And much more. "

A Guide to Distribution Theory and Fourier Transforms, Strichartz, Robert
6 Strichartz, Robert A Guide to Distribution Theory and Fourier Transforms
Boca Raton FL CRC Press 1993 0849382734 / 9780849382734 1st; First Printing Hardcover Near Fine with no dust jacket 
A bright, solid book, cloth boards are clean and bright, text unmarked. ; Studies in Advanced Mathematics; 9.75 X 6.50 X 0.75 inches; 213 pages; "This book provides a concise exposition of the basic ideas of the theory of distribution and Fourier transforms and its application to partial differential equations. The author clearly presents the ideas, precise statements of theorems, and explanations of ideas behind the proofs. Methods in which techniques are used in applications are illustrated, and many problems are included. The book also introduces several significant recent topics, including pseudo-differential operators, wave front sets, wavelets, and quasicrystals. Background mathematical prerequisites have been kept to a minimum, with only a knowledge of multidimensional calculus and basic complex variables needed to fully understand the concepts in the book."
