Knot Projections

Noboru Ito
December 01, 2016

Knot Projections offers a comprehensive overview of the latest methods in the study of this branch of topology, based on current research inspired by Arnold’s theory of plane curves, Viro’s quantization of the Arnold invariant, and Vassiliev’s theory of knots, among others. The presentation...

The Mathematics of Politics, Second Edition

E. Arthur Robinson, Daniel H. Ullman
November 16, 2016

It is because mathematics is often misunderstood, it is commonly believed it has nothing to say about politics.
