Handbook of Terms used in Algebra and Analysis by A. G. Howson

Book Description

Degree students of mathematics are often daunted by the mass of definitions and theorems with which they must familiarize themselves. In the fields algebra and analysis this burden will now be reduced because in A Handbook of Terms they will find sufficient explanations of the terms and the symbolism that they are likely to come across in their university courses. Rather than being like an alphabetical dictionary, the order and division of the sections correspond to the way in which mathematics can be developed. This arrangement, together with the numerous notes and examples that are interspersed with the text, will give students some feeling for the underlying mathematics. Many of the terms are explained in several sections of the book, and alternative definitions are given. Theorems, too, are frequently stated at alternative levels of generality. Where possible, attention is drawn to those occasions where various authors ascribe different meanings to the same term. The handbook will be extremely useful to students for revision purposes. It is also an excellent source of reference for professional mathematicians, lecturers and teachers.
