A.D. Alexandrov is considered by many to be the father of intrinsic geometry. A two-volume set, A.D. Alexandrov Selected Works contains some of the most important papers by this renowned geometer. Volume 1 covers convex polyhedrons and closed surfaces, an elementary proof and extension of Minkowski's theorem, Riemannian geometry and a method for Dirichlet problems. Volume 2 covers general propositions on an intrinsic metric, angles and curvature, the existence of a convex polyhedron with prescribed metric, curves on convex surfaces, and the role of specific curvature. These monographs, published in English for the first time, will appeal to advanced students and researchers in mathematics and geometry.

We provide complimentary e-inspection copies of primary textbooks to instructors considering our books for course adoption.
Most VitalSource eBooks are available in a reflowable EPUB format which allows you to resize text to suit you and enables other accessibility features. Where the content of the eBook requires a specific layout, or contains maths or other special characters, the eBook will be available in PDF (PBK) format, which cannot be reflowed. For both formats the functionality available will depend on how you access the ebook (via Bookshelf Online in your browser or via the Bookshelf app on your PC or mobile device).
