› Find signed collectible books: 'On Numbers and Games (L.M.S. Monographs ; No. 6)'
ONAG, as the book is commonly known, is one of those rare publications that sprang to life in a moment of creative energy and has remained influential for over a quarter of a century. Originally written to define the relation between the theories of transfinite numbers and mathematical games, the resulting work is a mathematically sophisticated but eminently enjoyable guide to game theory. By defining numbers as the strengths of positions in certain games, the author arrives at a new class, the surreal numbers, that includes both real numbers and ordinal numbers. These surreal numbers are applied in the author's mathematical analysis of game strategies. The additions to the Second Edition present recent developments in the area of mathematical game theory, with a concentration on surreal numbers and the additive theory of partizan games.

› Find signed collectible books: 'On Quaternions and Octonions'
This book investigates the geometry of quaternion and octonion algebras. Following a comprehensive historical introduction, the book illuminates the special properties of 3- and 4-dimensional Euclidean spaces using quaternions, leading to enumerations of the corresponding finite groups of symmetries. The second half of the book discusses the less familiar octonion algebra, concentrating on its remarkable "triality symmetry" after an appropriate study of Moufang loops. The authors also describe the arithmetics of the quaternions and octonions. The book concludes with a new theory of octonion factorization. Topics covered include the geometry of complex numbers, quaternions and 3-dimensional groups, quaternions and 4-dimensional groups, Hurwitz integral quaternions, composition algebras, Moufang loops, octonions and 8-dimensional geometry, integral octonions, and the octonion projective plane.

› Find signed collectible books: 'Regular Algebra and Finite Machines (Dover Books on Mathematics)'
World-famous mathematician John H. Conway based this classic text on a 1966 course he taught at Cambridge University. Geared toward graduate students of mathematics, it will also prove a valuable guide to researchers and professional mathematicians.
His topics cover Moore's theory of experiments, Kleene's theory of regular events and expressions, Kleene algebras, the differential calculus of events, factors and the factor matrix, and the theory of operators. Additional subjects include event classes and operator classes, some regulator algebras, context-free languages, communicative regular algebra, axiomatic questions, the strength of classical axioms, and logical problems. Complete solutions to problems appear at the end.

› Find signed collectible books: 'The Sensual Quadratic Form (Carus Mathematical Monographs)'
The effective management of diabetes can delay or even prevent the development of complications. Patients will often need to take a variety of medications, in addition to lifestyle modifications, to achieve this. Prescribing in Diabetes gives clear information about the options for treating the various aspects of diabetes, such as abnormal blood glucose, high blood pressure and abnormal cholesterol. It also gives practical advice on how to support people in managing their condition independently and improving their lifestyle, by making better choices armed with a thorough understanding of treatment options. Chapters include a description of the different methods available for the delivery of medicines to patients, the differences between type 1 and type 2 diabetes and an overview on how the drugs work. The book also discusses normal blood glucose regulation, self-monitoring, weight management, smoking cessation and the range of complications.

› Find signed collectible books: 'Sphere Packings, Lattices and Groups (Grundlehren Der Mathematischen Wissenschaften (Springer Hardcover))'
The third edition of this definitive and popular book continues to pursue the question: what is the most efficient way to pack a large number of equal spheres in n-dimensional Euclidean space? The authors also examine such related issues as the kissing number problem, the covering problem, the quantizing problem, and the classification of lattices and quadratic forms. There is also a description of the applications of these questions to other areas of mathematics and science such as number theory, coding theory, group theory, analogue-to-digital conversion and data compression, n-dimensional crystallography, dual theory and superstring theory in physics. New and of special interest is a report on some recent developments in the field, and an updated and enlarged supplementary bibliography with over 800 items.

› Find signed collectible books: 'Winning Ways: For Your Mathematical Plays, Volume. 2: Games in Particular'
Winning Ways includes several theories for a wide range of different compounds which are described in detail in the first volume, Games in General. In this volume, Games in Particular, there is a dazzling presentation of the examples: any game which presents an opportunity for witty and original comment has been included. The analyses start with basic theory using simple examples, but progress to detailed case-studies of well-known games ranging from the elementary to the elaborate and including Tic-Tac-Toe, Dots-and-Boxes, Hackenbush, Peg Solitaire and the maddening Hungarian cube puzzle.
