No marks or writing observed in text. Binding tight and square. Gently read. . . . . . Polytopes are geometrical figures bounded by portions of lines, planes, or hyperplanes. In plane (two dimensional) geometry, they are known as polygons and comprise such figures as triangles, squares, pentagons, etc. In solid (three dimensional) geometry they are known as polyhedra and include such figures as tetrahedra (a type of pyramid), cubes, icosahedra, and many more; the possibilities, in fact, are infinite! H. S. M. Coxeter's book is the foremost book available on regular polyhedra, incorporating no... View more info

ISBN: B00085HTBU

Condition: Used - Very Good


No marks or writing observed in text. Binding tight and square. Gently read. . . . . Harris Hancock is the author of a three volume treatise on elliptic functions. This is not that. Rather this book is a short introduction to elliptic integrals and functions which makes an excellent book to read early on in one's studies of these topics. The approach is historical beginning with Legendre's work on integration of certain algebraic functions leading to the classification of the three kinds of elliptic integrals. Primary treatment is given to the first two kinds as they are the simplest. . . ... View more info

Originally, I did most of my learning from Durbin (garbage book) and Beachy and Blair (great intro, but bloated if you don't need hand-holding through all the examples.) This text is far smaller, so carrying it around isn't a bother. There are HEAPS of exercises that vary in difficulty. Working these exercises is where the learning/understanding really happens! I highly recommend this for anyone interested in studying higher level... View more info

No marks or writing observed in text. Binding tight and square. Has some dog-earred pages. . . . . This book offers exactly what it's supposed to: a modern approach to quantum mechanics, and it does so with depth and elegance. The presentation is remarkably simple and vast. Of course this is only possible by omitting some passages and focusing on the expositive method. This should probably be a bad aspect but as it happens it's not. The omissions are well chosen, so that the students work the core of the concepts and fill in the gaps. There is simply a wonderful selection of exercises and with... View more info
