Download Das Undenkbare denken: Die Rezeption der nichteuklidischen by Klaus Volkert PDF

By Klaus Volkert

Das Buch behandelt die Rezeptionsgeschichte der nichteuklidischen Geometrie im Zeitraum von 1860 bis 1900. Dabei werden die historischen und institutionellen Rahmenbedingungen dargestellt; breiten Raum nehmen die philosophischen, wissenschaftstheoretischen und didaktischen Diskussionen um die neue Geometrie ein. Zahlreiche Originaltexte - viele davon quickly unbekannt - werden vorgestellt. Ein Fokus liegt auf der Verbreitung der nichteuklidischen Geometrie in breiteren Kreisen wie z. B. der Mathematiklehrerschaft.

A.D. Alexandrov: Intrinsic Geometry of Convex Surfaces: Selected Works Part 2 (Classics of Soviet Mathematics)

A. D. Alexandrov's contribution to the sector of intrinsic geometry was once unique and extremely influential. this article is a vintage that continues to be unsurpassed in its readability and scope. It offers his center fabric, initially released in Russian in 1948, starting wth an overview of the most thoughts after which exploring different issues, resembling basic propositions on an intrinsic metric; angles and curvature; lifestyles of a convex polyhedron with prescribed metric; curves on convex surfaces; and the function of particular curvature.

The Gelfand Mathematical Seminars, 1990–1992

This Seminar begun in Moscow in November 1943 and has persisted with no interruption as much as the current. we're chuffed that with this vol­ ume, Birkhiiuser has all started to put up papers of talks from the Seminar. It used to be, regrettably, tricky to arrange their book earlier than 1990. considering the fact that 1990, many of the talks have taken position at Rutgers collage in New Brunswick, New Jersey.

Perspectives in Analysis, Geometry, and Topology: On the Occasion of the 60th Birthday of Oleg Viro: 296 (Progress in Mathematics)

The articles during this quantity are invited papers from the Marcus Wallenberg symposium and specialise in examine topics that bridge the gap between analysis, geometry, and topology. The encounters among those 3 fields are common and infrequently offer impetus for significant breakthroughs in applications. Topics comprise new advancements in low dimensional topology on the topic of invariants of hyperlinks and 3 and 4 manifolds; Perelman's amazing evidence of the Poincare conjecture; and the new advances made in algebraic, complicated, symplectic, and tropical geometry.

Mathematical Concepts

The most purpose of this ebook is to explain and increase the conceptual, structural and summary taking into account arithmetic. particular mathematical constructions are used to demonstrate the conceptual strategy; supplying a deeper perception into mutual relationships and summary universal positive factors. those rules are conscientiously encouraged, defined and illustrated by means of examples in order that a number of the extra technical proofs might be passed over.
