Editorial Review Product Description The book is an English translation from Hebrew of a very popular in Israel guide for parents eager to help their kids to understand math. It reflects the author's unique experience as both a research mathematician and elementary school teacher. Part 1 discusses the nature of mathematics, its power, its beauty, and the source of the difficulties in studying it. Part 2 introduces the reader into principles of good teaching. Part 3 is an easy going, informal guide, filled with personal stories, historical anecdotes and teaching suggestions, addressing all twists and turns of basic arithmetic taught in grades 1 through 6. To a mathematics educator, the book sends two important messages. One is that basic mathematics, although unsophisticated, is rather deep, consisting of many neatly aligned layers, none of which can be skipped without the danger of causing "math anxiety"; The other is that good pedagogy depends not so much on various tricks and cognitive theories, but on thorough understanding of basic mathematics and its neatly layered structure. And the book teaches the reader -- a parent, or a teacher -- to really understand the subject and this structure. By Alexander Givental, Prof. of Math., UC Berkeley and Sumizdat. There is a Wikipedia article about the book. Reviews of the book can be found in: "Opinion" column by Linda Seebach of "Rocky Mountain News" for March 24, 2007; Homeschool Math blog by Maria Miller; "Read This!" column of "Online Book Reviews" by The Mathematical Association of America; the award-winning math web resource "Cut The Knot" by Alexander Bogomolny.

Inspiring and foundational
Foundations of Arithmetic
The first escape from the Elencus...
Frege, You're Not Supposed To Have... But here Frege's work-up of the concept for a general readership is so "genteel" as to suggest that this may not in fact be the case, and that Frege actually partook more heavily of Neo-Kantian bromides than his *theory of arithmetic* suggests; to wit, that this theory was always intended to be situated within a general philosophy of mathematics obeying the strictures of reasoning involving Kantian "intuition" (as is typically said of Frege's last efforts in the field).As such, it would be unfortunate that we cannot effectively read this book (formerly available *en face*, and unfortunately much the worse for the original's omission) in conjunction with its contemporary geometrical counterpart: long out of print, rarely making its way into the philosophical Frege literature, and perhaps in all parts an *anticipatory* if "crochety" rebuke to Hilbertian formalism. Perhaps Frege was to a certain extent wholly other than the mathematics of his time; perhaps we are not well-served by a Frege "out of time"; we certainly have one of the great prose stylists of English on hand here, and perhaps it would actually do to consider his aptitude for "gold" extraction here as a clue to puzzling out the rest of Frege -- a figure supremely unconcerned with sameness of meaning, and already owing a certain debt to those para-philosophical figures all his work is at cross-purposes with (the German '70s having been quite a time indeed).A great help to understanding number theory, a marvelous thing for a library to have.
Excellent work Note that he is very consistently hard on Mill. Some interesting quotes: p. 115e #106. "...number is neither a collection of things nor a property of such, yet at the same time is not a subjective product of mental processes either, we concluded that a statement of number asserts something objective of a concept. ... (p. 116e) We next laid down the fundamental principle that we must never try to define the meaning of a word in isolation, but only as it is used in the context of a proposition: only by adhering to this can we, as I believe, avoid a physical view of it. #107. (p.117e) "A recognition statement must always have a sense." ... Read more |

Editorial Review Product Description Floating-point arithmetic is by far the most widely used way of implementing real-number arithmetic on modern computers. Although the basic principles of floating-point arithmetic can be explained in a short amount of time, making such an arithmetic reliable and portable, yet fast, is a very difficult task. From the 1960s to the early 1980s, many different arithmetics were developed, but their implementation varied widely from one machine to another, making it difficult for nonexperts to design, learn, and use the required algorithms. As a result, floating-point arithmetic is far from being exploited to its full potential. This handbook aims to provide a complete overview of modern floating-point arithmetic, including a detailed treatment of the newly revised (IEEE 754-2008) standard for floating-point arithmetic. Presented throughout are algorithms for implementing floating-point arithmetic as well as algorithms that use floating-point arithmetic. So that the techniques presented can be put directly into practice in actual coding or design, they are illustrated, whenever possible, by a corresponding program. Key topics and features include: * Presentation of the history and basic concepts of floating-point arithmetic and various aspects of the past and current standards * Development of smart and nontrivial algorithms, and algorithmic possibilities induced by the availability of a fused multiply-add (fma) instruction, e.g., correctly rounded software division and square roots * Implementation of floating-point arithmetic, either in software—on an integer processor—or hardware, and a discussion of issues related to compilers and languages * Coverage of several recent advances related to elementary functions: correct rounding of these functions and computation of very accurate approximations under constraints * Extensions of floating-point arithmetic such as certification, verification, and big precision Handbook of Floating-Point Arithmetic is designed for programmers of numerical applications, compiler designers, programmers of floating-point algorithms, designers of arithmetic operators, and more generally, students and researchers in numerical analysis who wish to better understand a tool used in their daily work and research.

Algebraic Geometry and Arithmetic
Very good exposition The book starts off with a chapter on some topics in basic commutative algebra - localisation, flatness and completion. Once this is done, the stage is set to introduce schemes in the next chapter and prove their basic properties. Chapter 3 talks about morphisms of schemes and base change. Chapter 4 continues with a discussion of morphisms and also presents some results about some special types of schemes (normal, regular). It culminates with a proof of Zariski's main theorem.The next chapter takes up sheaf cohomology and is followed up with a chapter on differential calculus on schemes (Kahler differentials, duality theory). Lastly, chapter 7 takes up divisors, proves the Riemann Roch theorem and culminates with some applications to curves. At a first glance, this would basically look like Hartshorne - the most popular book for an introduction to schemes. However, there are few differences which I will point out. Firstly, Hartshorne emphasizes geometric applications and, as such, uses algebraically closed fields freely. Liu, on the other hand, does not hesistate to give arithmetic applications whenever possible and, therefore, tries to relax the hypotheses on the base field whenever possible. Secondly, Liu is much more readable than Hartshorne which, in its supreme elegance, is a tad dense for a first reading. Unlike Hartshorne, a majority of important results are not presented in the exercises (though many are!). Moreover, unlike Harshorne, this book develops all the necessary commutative algebra along the way (chapter 1,2 of Atiyah-Macdonald should be good enough to read this book). Coming back to the geometry, Hartshorne's chapter 4,5 form an excellent resource for classical geometric applications for theory of schemes. Moreover, chapter 1 presents a very readable and scheme-free account of classical algebraic geometry (pre-Grothendieck) in the language of varieties. Liu's book, however, does not emphasize classical or geometric applications and is not the best place to start if one wishes to learn about varieties. |

Answers Questions At the Rim of Your Thinking. Math is really only a small building block in this book.No advanced math is required, just addition and averaging.The math is a tool - a simple effective one at that- and nothing more.The main focus is providing solutions to issues one feels strongly about but does not have a clue on how to attack them. This book has also reminded me of a few ways I better improve myself.I stick to the speed limit and no longer tailgate!!!!! I just wish Mr. Shaffner would write another book!!!!!
