"From nothing I have created a new different world," wrote János Bolyai to his father, Wolgang Bolyai, on November 3, 1823, to let him know his discovery of non-Euclidean geometry, as we call it today. The results of Bolyai and the co-discoverer, the Russian Lobachevskii, changed the course of mathematics, opened the way for modern physical theories of the twentieth century, and had an impact on the history of human culture. The papers in this volume, which commemorates the 200th anniversary of the birth of János Bolyai, were written by leading scientists of non-Euclidean geometry, its history, and its applications. Some of the papers present new discoveries about the life and works of János Bolyai and the history of non-Euclidean geometry, others deal with geometrical axiomatics; polyhedra; fractals; hyperbolic, Riemannian and discrete geometry; tilings; visualization; and applications in physics.

An Aristotelian Realist Philosophy of Mathematics

Mathematics is as much a science of the real world as biology is. It is the science of the world's quantitative aspects (such as ratio) and structural or patterned aspects (such as symmetry). The book develops a complete philosophy of mathematics that contrasts with the usual Platonist and nominalist options.

The concept of the Euclidean simplex is important in the study of n-dimensional Euclidean geometry. This book introduces for the first time the concept of hyperbolic simplex as an important concept in n-dimensional hyperbolic geometry. Following the emergence of his gyroalgebra in 1988, the author crafted gyrolanguage, the algebraic language that sheds natural light on hyperbolic geometry and special relativity. Several authors have successfully employed the author’s gyroalgebra in their exploration for novel results. Françoise Chatelin noted in her book, and elsewhere, that the computation language of Einstein described in this book plays a universal computational role, which extends far beyond the domain of special relativity. This book will encourage researchers to use the author’s novel techniques to formulate their own results. The book provides new mathematical tools, such as hyperbolic simplexes, for the study of hyperbolic geometry in n dimensions. It also presents a new look at Einstein’s special relativity theory.

Dieses Arbeitsbuch enthält die Aufgaben, Hinweise, Lösungen und Lösungswege zu allen sechs Teilen des Lehrbuchs Arens et al., Mathematik. Die Inhalte des Buchs stehen als pdf-Dateien auch auf der Website zum Buch matheweb zur Verfügung. Durch die stufenweise Offenlegung der Lösungen ist das Werk bestens geeignet zum Selbststudium, zur Vorlesungsbegleitung und als Prüfungsvorbereitung. Inhaltlich spannt sich der Bogen von elementaren Grundlagen über die Analysis einer Veränderlichen, der linearen Algebra, der Analysis mehrerer Veränderlicher bis hin zu fortgeschrittenen Themen der Analysis, die für die Anwendung besonders wichtig sind, wie partielle Differenzialgleichungen, Fourierreihen und Laplacetransformationen. Auch eine Vielzahl von Aufgaben zur Wahrscheinlichkeitsrechnung und Statistik ist enthalten. Auf der Website zum Buch matheweb besteht die Möglichkeit, Verständnisfragen zu den Aufgaben zu stellen.
