Description

Of course here the ambiguity reigns supreme, as it is not clear how to define the notion of "people living in Denmark" with precision, unless (and this should be specified when defining such a set) we add the sentence "according to a given population census". I would imagine that this book must be perfect for maths undergraduates in their first year - or even in the summer before starting. The material is very well chosen and arranged, and teaching from Liebeck’s book has in many different ways been among my most rewarding teaching experiences during the last decades.

In addition to the pre-Analysis and pre-Algebra chapters, there are chapters on complex numbers, inequalities, some number theory and combinatorics, and the Platonic solids.Written in a rigorous yet accessible style, it continues to provide a robust bridge between high school and higher level mathematics, enabling students to study further courses in abstract algebra and analysis.

You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice.It covers not only standard material but also many interesting topics not usually encountered at this level, such as the theory of solving cubic equations; Euler's formula for the numbers of corners, edges, and faces of a solid object and the five Platonic solids; the use of prime numbers to encode and decode secret information; the theory of how to compare the sizes of two infinite sets; and the rigorous theory of limits and continuous functions. This book displays a unique combination of lightness and rigor, leavened with the right dose of humor. A diligent, active reader of this outstanding book will have the best foundation at minimum cost for making meaningful contributions to mathematics, science, or engineering. It will just give you a superficial overview of a bunch of theories and theorems that you will encounter sooner or later, in better form, in your college years. Very superficial, no real "mathematical idea", and not in the least any insight about the levels of depth of mathematical concepts, i.

Written in a rigorous yet accessible style, it continues to provide a robust bridge between high school and higher-level mathematics, enabling students to study more advanced courses in abstract algebra and analysis. Rispetto a quello che ricordo io del mio primo anno di matematica, il livello è molto più basso; sarà che la facoltà di Pisa voleva mantenere la sua fama e teneva corsi molti teorici, però garantisco che non lo si può certo usare come libro di testo, o forse sì ma per informatica.By carefully explaining various topics in analysis, geometry, number theory, and combinatorics, this textbook illustrates the power and beauty of basic mathematical concepts.
