CRC Press, USA, 1992. Softcover. Near Fine Condition. Pocket Book of Integrals and Mathematical Formulas, Second Edition, is a handy, compact reference work containing concise discussions of mathematical concepts and formulas frequently needed by students and professionals in engineering, science, applied math and statistics. One of the book's special features is its comprehensive table of integrals arranged and formatted to facilitate the rapid location of the right form. Tables of derivatives; calculus applications; graphs of important Cartesian and polar curves; and formulas from algebra, geometry, trigonometry, calculus and statistics have also been arranged with convenience in mind. The book also lists infinite series and includes discussions and formula listings in differential equations and in advanced topics such as Fourier series, Laplace and z-transforms, vector analysis, and orthogonal polynomials. Important physical constants and numerical tables of probability distributions such as normal, Poisson, t, chi square, and F are provided. Pocket Book of Integrals and Mathematical Formulas, Second Edition, is a volume every student or professional working with engineering mathematics should have in their coat pocket. Pocket Book of Integrals and Mathematical Formulas, Second Edition has been updated and expanded to cover even more calculus applications and additional topics, including Z-transforms, orthogonal polynomials, Bessel functions, and a summary of probability distributions. 225 pages.

Reckoning With Risk: Learning to Live With Uncertainty

By Gerd Gigerenzer

Penguin Books, Great Britain, 2003. Softcover. Good Condition. Gerd Gigerenzer's Reckoning with Risk: Learning to Live with Uncertainty illustrates how we can learn to make sense of statistics and turn ignorance into insight. However much we want certainty in our lives, it feels as if we live in an uncertain and dangerous world. But are we guilty of wildly exaggerating the chances of some unwanted event happening to us? Are we misled by our ignorance of the reality of risk? Far too many of us, argues Gerd Gigerenzer, are hampered by our own innumeracy, while statistics are often presented to us in highly confusing ways. With real world examples, such as the incidence of errors in tests for breast cancer or HIV, or in DNA fingerprinting, and the manipulation of statistics for evidence in court, he shows that our difficulty in thinking about numbers can easily be overcome. 310 pages.

What is Mathematics, Really?

What is Mathematics, Really?

By Reuben Hersh

Jonathan Cape, London, 1997. First Edition. Hardcover. Fine Condition/Fine. This book tackles the important questions which have engaged mathematicians, scientists, and philosophers for thousands of years and which are still being asked today. It does so with clarity and with scholarship born of first-hand experience; a knowledge both of the ideas and of the people who have pronounced on them. The main purpose of the book is to confront philosophical problems: In what sense do mathematical objects exist? How can we have knowledge of them? Why do mathematicians think mathematical entities exist for ever, independent of human action and knowledge? The book proposes an unconventional answer: mathematics has existence or reality only as part of human culture. Despite its seeming timelessness and infallibility, it is a social, cultural, historic phenomenon. 343 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos.

Mathematician's Delight

By W. W. Sawyer

Pelican / Penguin Books, Great Britain, 1964. Reprint. Softcover. Good Condition. 'The main object of this book is to dispel the fear of mathematics. Many people regard mathematicians as a race apart, possessed of almost supernatural powers. While this is very flattering for successful mathematicians, it is very bad for those who, for one reason or another, are attempting to learn the subject.' W.W. Sawyer's deep understanding of how we learn and his lively, practical approach have made this an ideal introduction to mathematics for generations of readers. By starting at the level of simple arithmetic and algebra and then proceeding step by step through graphs, logarithms and trigonometry to calculus and the dizzying world of imaginary numbers, the book takes the mystery out of maths. Throughout, Sawyer reveals how theory is subordinate to the real-life applications of mathematics - the Pyramids were built on Euclidean principles three thousand years before Euclid formulated them - and celebrates the sheer intellectual stimulus of mathematics at its best. 238 pages.
