This volume is suitable as a primary or supplementary text for college-level courses in linear algebra. It possesses the distinct advantage of approaching the subject simultaneously at two levels, the concrete and the axiomatic. Students thus receive the benefits of axiom-based mathematical reasoning as well as a grasp of concrete formulations. 1957 edition.

Discusses calculating with natural numbers, the first extension of the notion of number, special properties of integers, and complex numbers; algebra-related subjects such as real equations with real unknowns and equations in the field of complex quantities. Also explores elements of analysis, with discussions of logarithmic and exponential functions, the goniometric functions, and infinitesimal calculus. 1932 edition. 125 figures.

A straightforward explanation of the abstract principles common to science and mathematics, this helpful volume enables scientists and mathematicians to read and appreciate papers in fields different from their own. Topics include Euclid's algorithm; congruences; polynomials; complex numbers and algebraic fields; algebraic integers, ideals, and p-adic numbers and more. 1960 edition.

Definitive treatment covers split semi-simple Lie algebras, universal enveloping algebras, classification of irreducible modules, automorphisms, simple Lie algebras over an arbitrary field, and more. Classic handbook for researchers and students; useable in graduate courses or for self-study. Reader should have basic knowledge of Galois theory and the Wedderburn structure theory of associative algebras.

This original Dover textbook is based on an advanced undergraduate course taught by the author for more than 50 years. It introduces semi-Riemannian geometry and its principal physical application, Einstein's theory of general relativity, using the Cartan exterior calculus as a principal tool. Prerequisites include linear algebra and advanced calculus. 2012 edition.


The field of partial differential equations is an extremely important component of modern mathematics. It has great intrinsic beauty and virtually unlimited applications. This book, written for graduate-level students, grew out of a series of lectures the late Professor Petrovsky gave at Moscow State University. The first chapter uses physical problems to introduce the subjects and explains its division into... more...

This volume presents a systematic treatment of the theory of unbounded linear operators in normed linear spaces with applications to differential equations. Largely self-contained, it is suitable for advanced undergraduates and graduate students, and it only requires a familiarity with metric spaces and real variable theory. After introducing the elementary theory of normed linear spaces—particularly Hilbert space, which is used... more...

The use of vectors not only simplifies treatments of differential geometry, mechanics, hydrodynamics, and electrodynamics, but also makes mathematical and physical concepts more tangible and easy to grasp. This text for undergraduates was designed as a short introductory course to give students the tools of vector algebra and calculus, as well as a brief glimpse into these subjects' manifold applications. The applications are developed... more...

The author of this text ranks among America's most influential teachers, and his stimulating lectures helped train many leaders in mathematical research. Maxime Bocher’s Introduction to Higher Algebra remains a favorite with students and teachers for a number of important reasons: comparatively, brief, it covers a vast amount of material; its elegant presentation of concepts and theorems is unsurpassed in the literature; its specific... more...

This classic text encompasses the most important aspects of plane and spherical trigonometry in a question-and-answer format. Its 913 specially selected questions appear with detailed answers that help readers refresh their trigonometry skills or clear up difficulties in particular areas. Questions and answers in the first part discuss plane trigonometry, proceeding to examinations of special problems in navigation,... more...
