Product Description: The book consists of thirty lectures on diverse topics, covering much of the mathematical landscape rather than focusing on one area. The reader will learn numerous results that often belong to neither the standard undergraduate nor graduate curriculum and will discover connections between classical and contemporary ideas in algebra, combinatorics, geometry, and topology...read more

*About this edition:*The book consists of thirty lectures on diverse topics, covering much of the mathematical landscape rather than focusing on one area.Product Description: Mathematical billiards describe the motion of a mass point in a domain with elastic reflections off the boundary or, equivalently, the behavior of rays of light in a domain with ideally reflecting boundary. From the point of view of differential geometry, the billiard flow is the geodesic flow on a manifold with boundary...read more

*About this edition:*Ideas of projective geometry keep reappearing in seemingly unrelated fields of mathematics.Product Description: There is a tradition in Russia that holds that mathematics can be both challenging and fun. One fine outgrowth of that tradition is the magazine, "Kvant", which has been enjoyed by many of the best students since its founding in 1970...read more (view table of contents, read Amazon.com's description)
