- Books are good for in-depth information that covers many issues of a topic. They can be physical books or online.
*Reference*materials include encyclopedias and dictionaries and give an overview of a topic to give you ideas, definitions, or lines of research to follow. Physical reference books cannot be taken out of the library.*Circulating*books means you can take them out of the library for a long period of time. The Circulating Collection is on the third floor.

- The Best Writing on Mathematics 2019 The year's finest mathematical writing from around the world This annual anthology brings together the year's finest mathematics writing from around the world. Featuring promising new voices alongside some of the foremost names in the field, The Best Writing on Mathematics 2019 makes available to a wide audience many articles not easily found anywhere else--and you don't need to be a mathematician to enjoy them. These essays delve into the history, philosophy, teaching, and everyday aspects of math, offering surprising insights into its nature, meaning, and practice--and taking readers behind the scenes of today's hottest mathematical debates. In this volume, Moon Duchin explains how geometric-statistical methods can be used to combat gerrymandering, Jeremy Avigad illustrates the growing use of computation in making and verifying mathematical hypotheses, and Kokichi Sugihara describes how to construct geometrical objects with unusual visual properties. In other essays, Neil Sloane presents some recent additions to the vast database of integer sequences he has catalogued, and Alessandro Di Bucchianico and his colleagues highlight how mathematical methods have been successfully applied to big-data problems. And there's much, much more. In addition to presenting the year's most memorable math writing, this must-have anthology includes an introduction by the editor and a bibliography of other notable writings on mathematics. This is a must-read for anyone interested in where math has taken us--and where it is headed.Call Number: OnlinePublication Date: 2019

- Higher Mathematics for Engineering and Technology Based on and enriched by the long-term teaching experience of the authors, this volume covers the major themes of mathematics in engineering and technical specialties. The book addresses the elements of linear algebra and analytic geometry, differential calculus of a function of one variable, and elements of higher algebra. On each theme the authors first present short theoretical overviews and then go on to give problems to be solved. The authors provide the solutions to some typical, relatively difficult problems and guidelines for solving them. The authors consider the development of the self-dependent thinking ability of students in the construction of problems and indicate which problems are relatively difficult. The book is geared so that some of the problems presented can be solved in class, and others are meant to be solved independently. An extensive, explanatory solution of at least one typical problem is included, with emphasis on applications, formulas, and rules. This volume is primarily addressed to advanced students of engineering and technical specialties as well as to engineers/technicians and instructors of mathematics. Key features: Presents the theoretical background necessary for solving problems, including definitions, rules, formulas, and theorems on the particular theme Provides an extended solution of at least one problem on every theme and guidelines for solving some difficult problems Selects problems for independent study as well as those for classroom time, taking into account the similarity of both sets of problems Differentiates relatively difficult problems from others for those who want to study mathematics more deeply Provides answers to the problems within the text rather than at the back of the book, enabling more direct verification of problem solutions Presents a selection of problems and solutions that are very interesting not only for the students but also for professor-teacher staffCall Number: OnlineISBN: 1351397109Publication Date: 2018
