Differenzengeometrie

1m vorliegenden Bueh werden wir uns mit der Differentialgeometrie der Kurven und Flaehen im dreidimensionalen Raum besehiiftigen [2, 7]. Wir werden dabei besonderes Gewieht darauf legen, einen "ansehauliehen" Einbliek in die differentialgeometrisehen Begriffe und Satze zu gewinnen. Zu dies em Zweek werden wir, soweit sieh dies in naheliegender Weise er mogliehen lal3t, den differentialgeometrisehen Objekten elementargeome trisehe oder, wie wir dafiir aueh sagen wollen, differenzengeometrisehe Modelle gegeniiberstellen und deren elementargeometrisehe Eigensehaften mit differentialgeometrisehen Eigensehaften der Kurven und Flaehen in Be ziehung bringen.

Elements of the History of Mathematics

This paintings gathers jointly, with out vast amendment, the key­ ity of the ancient Notes that have seemed to date in my parts de M atMmatique. in simple terms the circulate has been made self sufficient of the weather to which those Notes have been hooked up; they're consequently, in precept, obtainable to each reader who possesses a valid classical mathematical history, of undergraduate usual.

Zero : a landmark discovery, the dreadful void, and the ultimate mind

0 shows the absence of a volume or a significance. it's so deeply rooted in our psyche at the present time that no-one will potentially ask "What is 0? " From the start of the very construction of existence, the sensation of loss of whatever or the imaginative and prescient of emptiness/void has been embedded through the writer in all dwelling beings.
