By Athanase Papadopoulos
This e-book is set metric areas of nonpositive curvature within the experience of Busemann, that's, metric areas whose distance functionality satisfies a convexity situation. The e-book additionally includes a systematic advent to metric geometry, in addition to a close presentation of a few features of convexity idea which are valuable within the learn of nonpositive curvature. The options and the recommendations are illustrated by way of many examples, particularly from hyperbolic geometry, Hilbert geometry and Teichmüller concept. For the second one variation, a few corrections and some additions were made, and the bibliography has been up-to-date. A booklet of the eu Mathematical Society. dispensed in the Americas via the yankee Mathematical Society.

Immanuel Kant's Critique of natural cause is broadly taken to be the start line of the trendy interval of arithmetic whereas David Hilbert used to be the final nice mainstream mathematician to pursue vital 19th century principles. This two-volume paintings presents an outline of this significant period of mathematical examine via a delicately selected number of articles.
James Clerk Maxwell (1831-1879) had a comparatively short, yet awesome lifestyles, lived in his liked rural domestic of Glenlair, and variously in Edinburgh, Aberdeen, London and Cambridge. His scholarship additionally ranged large - protecting all of the significant points of Victorian normal philosophy. He used to be the most vital mathematical physicists of all time, coming merely after Newton and Einstein.

Like different books within the Macmillan Mathematical courses sequence, this booklet is written for first 12 months undergraduates on arithmetic measure classes, and offers a gently paced and readable advent to its subject. lots of labored examples and routines are supplied. The booklet is predicated at the first 12 months Mathematical tools direction within the natural Maths division at Sheffield college - a path which has run effectively for a few years in a self-paced studying mode.
