|Basic Concepts in Modern Mathematics |
by John Edward Hafstrom
In-depth survey, geared toward undergraduates of all backgrounds, covers natural numbers; sets, variables, and statement forms; mappings and operations; groups; relations and partitions; integers; and rational and real numbers. 1961 edition.
|Evolution of Mathematical Concepts: An Elementary Study |
by Raymond L. Wilder
Rather than a survey of the history or philosophy of modern mathematics, this treatment envisions mathematics as a broad cultural phenomenon, examining historic and social influences on such concepts as number and length. 1973 edition.
|A First Course in Functional Analysis |
by Prof. Martin Davis
Designed for undergraduate mathematics majors, this self-contained exposition of Gelfand's proof of Wiener's theorem explores set theoretic preliminaries, normed linear spaces and algebras, functions on Banach spaces, homomorphisms on normed linear spaces, more. 1966 edition.
|Fourier Series |
by G. H. Hardy, W. W. Rogosinski
Classic graduate-level text discusses the Fourier series in Hilbert space, examines further properties of trigonometrical Fourier series, and concludes with a detailed look at the applications of previously outlined theorems. 1956 edition.
|The Green Book of Mathematical Problems |
by Kenneth Hardy, Kenneth S. Williams
Popular selection of 100 practice problems — with hints and solutions — for students preparing for undergraduate-level math competitions. Includes questions drawn from geometry, group theory, linear algebra, and other fields.
|An Introduction to Mathematical Logic |
by Richard E. Hodel
Comprehensive overview, suitable for advanced undergraduates and graduate students, covers propositional logic; first-order languages and logic; incompleteness, undecidability, and indefinability; recursive functions; computability; and Hilbert's Tenth Problem. 1995 edition.
|An Introduction to Phase-Integral Methods |
by John Heading
Introductory treatment steers a course between simplistic and rigorous approaches to provide a concise overview for advanced undergraduates and graduate students. Topics include Stokes phenomenon, one and two transition points, and applications to physical problems. 1962 edition.
|Introduction to Stochastic Processes |
by Erhan Cinlar
Clear presentation employs methods that recognize computer-related aspects of theory. Topics include expectations and independence, Bernoulli processes and sums of independent random variables, Markov chains, renewal theory, more. 1975 edition.
|Mathematical Methods in the Theory of Queuing |
by A. Y. Khinchin, D. M. Andrews, M. H. Quenouille

|Modern Calculus and Analytic Geometry |
by Richard A. Silverman
Highly readable, self-contained text provides clear explanations for students at all levels of mathematical proficiency. Over 1,600 problems, many with detailed answers. Corrected 1969 edition. Includes 394 figures. Index.
|N-Person Game Theory: Concepts and Applications |
by Anatol Rapoport
In this sequel to Two-Person Game Theory, the author introduces the necessary mathematical notation (mainly set theory), presents basic concepts, discusses a variety of models, and provides applications to social situations. 1970 edition.
|Proof Theory: Second Edition |
by Gaisi Takeuti
This comprehensive monograph presents a detailed overview of creative works by the author and other 20th-century logicians that includes applications of proof theory to logic as well as other areas of mathematics. 1975 edition.
|Substitutional Analysis |
by Daniel Edwin Rutherford
Classic monograph, suitable for advanced undergraduates and graduate students. Topics include calculus of permutations and tableaux, semi-normal representation, orthogonal and natural representations, group characters, and substitutional equations. 1968 edition.
