Praise for George Francis's A Topological Picturebook:
Bravo to Springer for reissuing this special and gorgeous e-book! It not just reminds the older new release of the pleasures of doing arithmetic by means of hand, but additionally exhibits the recent new release what ``hands on'' quite means.
- John Stillwell, college of San Francisco
The Topological Picturebook has taught a complete iteration of mathematicians to attract, to determine, and to think.
- Tony Robbin, artist and writer of Shadows of fact: The Fourth measurement in Relativity, Cubism, and glossy Thought
The vintage reference for the way to provide topological information visually, jam-packed with remarkable hand-drawn pictures of complex surfaces.
- John Sullivan, Technische Universitat Berlin
A Topological Picturebook we could scholars see topology because the unique discoverers conceived it: concrete and visible, freed from the formalism that burdens traditional textbooks.
- Jeffrey Weeks, writer of The form of Space
A Topological Picturebook is a visible ceremonial dinner for a person occupied with mathematical images. Francis presents beautiful examples to construct one's "visualization muscles". even as, he explains the underlying rules and layout strategies for readers to create their very own lucid drawings.
- George W. Hart, Stony Brook University
In this number of narrative gemstones and exciting hand-drawn photos, George Francis demonstrates the chicken-and-egg dating, in arithmetic, of photograph and textual content. because the publication used to be first released, the case for images in arithmetic has been received, and now it's time to think of their which means. A Topological Picturebook is still indispensable.
- Marjorie Senechal, Smith collage and co-editor of the Mathematical Intelligencer

What precisely is the Golden Ratio? How used to be it stumbled on? the place is it chanced on? those questions and extra are completely defined during this attractive journey of 1 of arithmetic' best phenomena. The authors trace the looks of the Golden Ratio all through background, show quite a few creative strategies used to build it, and illustrate the various dazzling geometric figures during which the Golden Ratio is embedded.
Langer als ursprunglich beabsichtigt conflict, hat sich die fortress setzung des Werkes verzogert, . . von dessen zweitem Bande nunmehr ein erster Theil der Oeffentlichkeit ubergeben wird. Mannigfache eigene Untersuchungen und eine umfangreiche amtliche Thatigkeit nahmen mich lange Zeit zu sehr in Anspruch. Ueberdies battle mir die Freude an der Arbeit wesentlich beeintrachtigt, theils durch mehrfach ungiinstige U rtheile u ber die artwork und Weise, wie ich im ersten Bande iiber den ursprunglichen Inhalt von Cle bsch' s Vor lesungen durch Bearbeitung neuerer Untersuchungen hinausgegangen struggle, theils durch das Bewusstsein, in der That nicht immer das vor gesteckte Ziel erreicht zu haben.
I used to be instructing in united states for two decades in collage process and 31 years in several state. My mammoth adventure support me to offer scholar first-class wisdom. This publication comprise vitally important subject to achieve success pupil in any faculties. This booklet comprise overview of arithmetic:whole numbers, decimals, fractions and combined numbers, rational numbers, introductions of equations, polynomial, geometry, observe difficulties.
This publication specializes in the unifying energy of the geometrical language in bringing jointly innovations from many alternative components of physics, starting from classical physics to the theories describing the 4 basic interactions of Nature — gravitational, electromagnetic, powerful nuclear, and susceptible nuclear.
