  • CARUS, Paul
    INVARIANTS AS PRODUCTS AND A VECTOR INTERPRETATION OF THE SYMBOLIC METHOD

    Edition: First edition

    Chicago: Open Court, 1927. Red cloth gilt lettered. [8], 44 pp. Spine lightly darkened, else fine. Carus was the son of the distinguished Paul Carus, editor of The Open Court. He studied mathematics at Cambridge and Göttingen and completed this thesis while studying at the University of Chicago. He founded Carus Chemical Company in 1915, which became the world's largest manufacturer of potassiam permanganate (used as a disinfectant and also by naughty boys to turn people's swimming pool water pink), Carus having produced the chemical while an undergraduate at Wisconsin. He was important in the development of invariant theory (he had attended Hilbert's lectures in Germany). Note: lighter parcel, any default postage rate may be reduced

  • Eigen, Manfred ; Ruthild Winkler
    Laws of the Game : How the Principles of Nature Govern Chance

    Princeton, NJ: Princeton University Press, 1993. Fine copy. "Using game theory and examples of actual games people play, Nobel laureate Manfred Eigen and Ruthild Winkler show how the elements of chance and rules underlie all that happens in the universe, from genetic behavior through economic growth to the composition of music. To illustrate their argument, the authors turn to classic games--backgammon, bridge, and chess--and relate them to physical, biological, and social applications of probability theory and number theory. Further, they have invented, and present here, more than a dozen playable games derived from scientific models for equilibrium, selection, growth, and even the composition of RNA."

A collection of 17 papers by Tarski, revised for this English publication, including his important 'The Concept of Truth in Formalized Languages'. Tarski's most important book, the foundation of modern logical semantics. "He is widely considered as one of the greatest logicians of the twentieth century (often regarded as second only to Gödel), and thus as one of the greatest logicians of all time. Among philosophers he is especially known for his mathematical characterizations of the concepts of truth and logical consequence for sentences of classical formalized languages, and to a lesser extent for his mathematical characterization of the concept of a logical constant for expressions of those same languages. Among logicians and mathematicians he is in addition famous for his work on set theory, model theory and algebra, which includes results and developments such as the Banach-Tarski paradox, the theorem on the indefinability of truth, the completeness and decidability of elementary algebra and geometry, and the notions of cardinal, ordinal, relation and cylindric algebras" - Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy

    Mathematical Theory of Electrophoresis. Translated from the Russian by Cathy Flick

    Edition: First printing

    New York: Consultants Bureau / Plenum Press, 1989. Glossy boards, pp 241. Slight rubbing to the surface gloss, else a fine copy, no owner marks. The development of contemporary molecular biology with its growing tendency toward in-depth study of the mechanisms of biological processes, structure, function, and identification of biopolymers requires application of accurate physicochemical methods. Electrophoresis occupies a key position among such methods. A wide range of phenomena fall un­ der the designation of electrophoresis in the literature at the present time. One common characteristic of all such phenomena is transport by an elec­ tric field of a substance whose particles take on a net charge as a result of interaction with the solution.

    New York: Consultants Bureau / Plenum Press, 1989. Glossy boards, pp 241. Slight rubbing to the surface gloss, else a fine copy, no owner marks. The development of contemporary molecular biology with its growing tendency toward in-depth study of the mechanisms of biological processes, structure, function, and identification of biopolymers requires application of accurate physicochemical methods. Electrophoresis occupies a key position among such methods. A wide range of phenomena fall un­ der the designation of electrophoresis in the literature at the present time. One common characteristic of all such phenomena is transport by an elec­ tric field of a substance whose particles take on a net charge as a result of interaction with the solution. The most important mechanisms for charge generation are dissociation of the substance into ions in solution and for­ mation of electrical double layers with uncompensated charges on particles of dispersed medium in the liquid. As applied to the problem of separation, purification, and analysis of cells, cell organelles, and biopolymers, there is a broad classification of electrophoretic methods primarily according to the methodological charac­ teristics of the process, the types of supporting media, etc. An extensive literature describes the use of these methods for the investigation of differ­ ent systems. A number of papers are theoretical in nature. Thus, the mi­ croscopic theory has been developed rather completely [13] by considering electrophoresis within the framework of electrokinetic phenomena based on the concept of the electrical double layer.

The book is unique among popular books on mathematics in combining an engaging, easy-to-read history of the subject with a comprehensive mathematical survey text. Intended, in the author's words, "for the benefit of those who never studied the subject, those who think they have forgotten what they once learned, or those with a sincere desire for more knowledge," it links mathematics to the humanities, linguistics, the natural sciences, and technology. Contains more than 1000 original technical illustrations, a multitude of reproductions from mathematical classics and other relevant works, and a generous sprinkling of asides, ranging from limericks and tall stories to cartoons and decorative drawings. Over 1000 technical illustrations and cartoons and drawings. Note: 3 kg parcel, extra postage may be required.
