A distinguished mathematician and educator enlivens abstract discussions of arithmetic, algebra, and analysis by means of graphical and geometrically perceptive methods. His three-part treatment begins with topics associated with arithmetic, including calculating with natural numbers, the first extension of the notion of number, special properties of integers, and complex numbers. Algebra-related subjects constitute the second part, which examines real equations with real unknowns and equations in the field of complex quantities. The final part explores elements of analysis, with discussions of logarithmic and exponential functions, the goniometric functions, and infinitesimal calculus. 1932 edition. 125 figures.

› Find signed collectible books: 'Famous Problems and Other Monographs (AMS Chelsea Publishing)'
Four volumes in one: Famous Problems of Elementary Geometry, by Klein. A fascinating, simple, easily understandable account of the famous problems of Geometry--The Duplication of the Cube, Trisection of the Angle, Squaring of the Circle--and the proofs that these cannot be solved by ruler and compass. Suitably presented to undergraduates, with no calculus required. Also, the work includes problems about transcendental numbers, the existence of such numbers, and proofs of the transcendence of $e$. From Determinant to Tensor, by Sheppard. A novel and simple introduction to tensors. ``An excellent little book, the aim of which is to familiarize the student with tensors and to give an idea of their applications. We wish to recommend the book heartily ... The beginner will find the book a valuable introduction and the expert an interesting review with a refreshing novelty of presentation.'' --Bulletin of the AMS Chapter headings: 1: Origin of Determinants; 2: Properties of Determinants; 3: Solution of Simultaneous Equations; 4: Properties; 5: Tensor Notation; 6: Sets; 7: Cogredience, etc. 8: Examples from Statistics; 9: Tensors in Theory of Relativity. Introduction to Combinatory Analysis, by MacMahon. An introduction to the author's two-volume work. Three Lectures on Fermat's Last Theorem, by Mordell. This famous problem is so easy that a high-school student might not unreasonably hope to solve it: it is so difficult that as of the 1962 publication date of this book, tens of thousands of amateur and professional mathematicians, Euler and Gauss among them, failed to find a complete solution. Mordell himself had a solution (as he said he did). This work is one of the masterpieces of mathematical exposition.

› Find signed collectible books: 'Famous Problems of Elementary Geometry (Dover Phoenix Editions)'
Widely regarded as a classic of modern mathematics, this expanded version of Felix Klein's celebrated 1894 lectures uses contemporary techniques to examine three famous problems of antiquity: doubling the volume of a cube, trisecting an angle, and squaring a circle. Today's students will find this volume of particular interest in its answers to such questions as: Under what circumstances is a geometric construction possible? By what means can a geometric construction be effected? What are transcendental numbers, and how can you prove that e and pi are transcendental? The straightforward treatment requires no higher knowledge of mathematics. Unabridged reprint of the classic 1930 second edition.

› Find signed collectible books: 'Gestalt Graphology: Exploring the Mystery and Complexity of Human Nature Through Handwriting Analysis'
Founder of the National Society for Graphology, Felix Klein began his study of graphology in his birthplace, Vienna, Austria, at the age of thirteen. He was a practicing graphologist all of his life and lectured and gave seminars throughout the United States and in Canada, England, Germany, Israel and Mexico. Mr. Klein came to the United States in 1940 after spending six months each in the concentration camps at Dachau and Buchenwald. While in those camps he formulated his theory of directional pressure as a result of studying changes in the handwriting of his fellow inmates. Mr. Klein did extensive work in personnel selection for major companies and banks, vocational guidance, and individual analyses, as well as forensic document examination for such entities as the U.N., AT&T, and a major political figure in Ghana, Africa. It was probably as a teacher that Felix was most known and loved. He held classes and offered correspondence courses in all levels of graphology: elementary, intermediate, advanced, Master Research, and Psychology for Graphologists. Wherever Felix spoke, his warm, caring personality and his naturalness and keen sense of humor generated enthusiastic responses from young and old alike.

› Find signed collectible books: 'Lectures on Mathematics (AMS Chelsea Publishing)'
In the late summer of 1893, following the Congress of Mathematicians held in Chicago, Felix Klein gave two weeks of lectures on the current state of mathematics. Rather than offering a universal perspective, Klein presented his personal view of the most important topics of the time. It is remarkable how most of the topics continue to be important today. Originally published in 1893 and reissued by the AMS in 1911, we are pleased to bring this work into print once more with this new edition. Klein begins by highlighting the works of Clebsch and of Lie. In particular, he discusses Clebsch's work on Abelian functions and compares his approach to the theory with Riemann's more geometrical point of view. Klein devotes two lectures to Sophus Lie, focussing on his contributions to geometry, including sphere geometry and contact geometry. Klein's ability to connect different mathematical disciplines clearly comes through in his lectures on mathematical developments. For instance, he discusses recent progress in non-Euclidean geometry by emphasizing the connections to projective geometry and the role of transformation groups. In his descriptions of analytic function theory and of recent work in hyperelliptic and Abelian functions, Klein is guided by Riemann's geometric point of view. He discusses Galois theory and solutions of algebraic equations of degree five or higher by reducing them to normal forms that might be solved by non-algebraic means. Thus, as discovered by Hermite and Kronecker, the quintic can be solved ""by elliptic functions"". This also leads to Klein's well-known work connecting the quintic to the group of the icosahedron. Klein expounds on the roles of intuition and logical thinking in mathematics. He reflects on the influence of physics and the physical world on mathematics and, conversely, on the influence of mathematics on physics and the other natural sciences. The discussion is strikingly similar to today's discussions about ``physical mathematics''. There are a few other topics covered in the lectures which are somewhat removed from Klein's own work. For example, he discusses Hilbert's proof of the transcendence of certain types of numbers (including $\pi$ and $e$), which Klein finds much simpler than the methods used by Lindemann to show the transcendence of $\pi$. Also, Klein uses the example of quadratic forms (and forms of higher degree) to explain the need for a theory of ideals as developed by Kummer. Klein's look at mathematics at the end of the 19th Century remains compelling today, both as history and as mathematics. It is delightful and fascinating to observe from a one-hundred year retrospect, the musings of one of the masters of an earlier era.

This well-known work covers the solution of quintics in terms of the rotations of a regular icosahedron around the axes of its symmetry. Its two-part presentation begins with discussions of the theory of the icosahedron itself; regular solids and theory of groups; introductions of (x + iy); a statement and examination of the fundamental problem, with a view of its algebraic character; and general theorems and a survey of the subject. The second part explores the theory of equations of the fifth degree and their historical development; introduces geometrical material; and covers canonical equations of the fifth degree, the problem of A's and Jacobian equations of the sixth degree, and the general equation of the fifth degree. Second revised edition with additional corrections.

This collection of essays by a distinguished mathematician and teacher examines important issues of dynamics from the viewpoint of the theory of functions of the complex variable. Based on a series of lectures delivered by Felix Klein in conjunction with Princeton Universitys 150th anniversary, these presentations center on the problem inherent in the motion of a topthat is, a rigid body rotating about an axiswhen a single point in this axis other than the center of gravity is fixed in position. The contents of this volume render discussions of dynamics-related issues simpler, more attractive, and relevant not only to mathematicians but also to engineers, physicists, and astronomers. Unabridged republication of the classic 1897 edition.

A consideration of the investigations in the first part of Riemann's Theory of Abelian Functions, this volume introduces Riemann's approach to multiple-value functions and the geometrical representation of these functions by what later became known as Riemann surfaces. It further concentrates on the kinds of functions that can be defined on these surfaces, confining the treatment to rational functions and their integrals, and then demonstrates how Riemann's mathematical ideas about Abelian integrals can be arrived at by thinking in terms of the flow of electric current on surfaces. Deeply significant in the area of complex functions, this work constitutes one of the best introductions to the origins of topological problems. Unabridged republication of the classic 1893 edition. 43 figures. Glossary.

The two volumes collected here represent what were to be the first two parts of Klein's plan to write a complete history of the mathematics of the 19th Century. This remarkable book was written by Klein during the last years of his life, a time coinciding with exciting mathematical activity and also the first World War. It is his personal view of the significant developments in mathematics in the 1800s (and early 1900s), especially those connected with the German school. This period includes the time of Klein's greatest activity and influence as a mathematician. The selection of topics reflects Klein's own interests in mathematics. The topics in the first volume include: Gauss's work in pure and applied mathematics; mathematics in France during the early decades of the 19th Century; the contributions of Mobius, Plucker and Steiner to the development of algebraic geometry; mechanics and mathematical physics in England and Germany up to the 1880s; complex analysis according to Riemann and according to Weierstrass; automorphic functions and the interplay between group theory and function theory. The second volume focuses on invariants and their applications in mathematical physics, with particular emphasis on special relativity. Both volumes were published after Klein's death. The final draft for the first volume was prepared by Courant and Neugebauer. The second volume was prepared by Courant and Cohn-Vossen.
