› 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 Harmony of the World: 75 Years of Mathematics Magazine (Spectrum)'
Who would expect to find in the pages of Mathematics Magazine the first full treatment of one of the more important and oft-cited twentieth century theorems in analysis, the Stone-Weierstrass Theorem in an article by Marshall Stone himself? Where else would one look for proofs of trigonometric identities using commutative ring theory? Or one of the earliest and best expository articles on the then new Jones knot polynomials, an article that won the prestigious Chauvenet Prize? Or an amusing article purporting to show that the value of has been time dependent over the years? These and much more are in this collection of the best from Mathematics Magazine. Readers are inundated with new material in the many mathematical journals. Gems from past issues of Mathematics Magazine or the Monthly or the College Mathematics Journal are read with pleasure when they appear but get pushed into the background when the next issues arrive. So from time to time it is rewarding to go back and see just what marvelous material has been published over many years, articles now to some extent forgotten. There is history of mathematics (algebraic numbers, inequalities, probability and the Lebesgue integral, quaternions, PÃ’Â’ÃÂ³lya s enumeration theorem, and group theory) and stories of mathematicians (Hypatia, Gauss, E. T. Bell, Hamilton, and Euler). The list of authors is star-studded: E. T. Bell, Otto Neugebauer, D. H. Lehmer, Morris Kline, Einar Hille, Richard Bellman, Judith Grabiner, Paul Erdos, B. L. van der Waerden, Paul R. Halmos, Doris Schattschneider, J. J. Burckhardt, Branko Grunbaum, and many more. Eight of the articles included have received the Carl B. Allendoerfer or Lester R. Ford Awards.

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.
