Morse Theory: Smooth and Discrete serves as an introduction to classical smooth Morse theory and to Forman's discrete Morse theory, highlighting the parallels between the two subjects. This is the first time both smooth and discrete Morse theory have been treated in a single volume. This makes the book a valuable resource for students and professionals working in topology and discrete mathematics. With a strong focus on examples, the text is suitable for advanced undergraduates or beginning graduate students.

"The book fills a gap existing in the literature. His book covers both theories in an introductory way. It is self-contained. In addition, many detailed and motivational examples are included, so even the non-specialist reader will find the text clear and user-friendly. This book could be a nice text for a course on Morse theory in a wide sense. Researchers interested specifically in an introduction to discrete Morse theory can now avoid looking for various papers or sections of several books."

In diesem Buch nimmt der britische Mathe-Guru seine Leser mit auf eine Reise durch das Reich der Zahlen – reelle, rationale, irrationale, komplexe; ganz, ganz kleine und unendlich große, Fraktale, Logarithmen, Hochzahlen, Primzahlen, Kusszahlen und viele mehr. Jedes Kapitel konzentriert sich auf eine Zahl oder Zahlengruppe und erläutert, warum sie so interessant ist. «Jede Zahl hat ihre eigene Geschichte zu erzählen», heißt es im Vorwort. Stewart erzählt sie mit Begeisterung und versteht es geschickt, diese Geschichten miteinander zu verweben, ob es um die Zahl Pi geht oder zum Schluss auch um Geheimcodes, den Rubikwürfel und Sudoku. Darüber hinaus erfährt man viel über die Geschichte der Mathematik und die Rolle, die sie für unsere Entwicklung spielt. Schließlich waren es die Zahlen, so der Autor, «die es der Menschheit ermöglicht haben, sich aus dem Schlamm zu ziehen und nach den Sternen zu greifen».

This work provides an interpretation of John Stuart Mill’s On Liberty (1859) and elucidates the fundamental principles of Mill’s concept of liberty. For Mill, the right to form one’s own convictions and live according to them should only be infringed upon for one reason, namely “to prevent harm to others”.
