› Find signed collectible books: 'Abstract Algebra: A First Undergraduate Course'
The authors have used forty years of classroom experience to design a text that serves as a superb introduction to abstract algebra. All students, even those with no previous knowledge of abstract or linear algebra, will benefit from the Fifth Edition's organization and selection of topics. Outstanding features include: (1) builds abstraction on a solid foundation of concrete examples; (2) develops concepts gradually but allows for more rapid progress as students' mathematical maturity increases; (3) offers unparalleled problem sets; and (4) foreshadows important topics and then clearly presents and applies them to facilitate retention, not mere exposure. The historical and biographical notes on major contributors to the development of algebra show that mathematics continues to be created by real people. The preface shows how to use the text's flexibility to achieve any of several goals.

› Find signed collectible books: 'The Random Walks of George Polya (Spectrum)'
George Pólya was one of the giants of classical analysis in the 20th century, and the influence of his work can be seen far beyond analysis, into number theory, geometry, probability and combinatorics. This book serves both as a biography of Pólya's life, and a review of his many mathematical achievements by experts from a wide range of different fields. Last but not least the book finishes with two essays by Pólya himself which focus on how to learn to solve problems, a subject with which he was fascinated throughout his life.
