4-0 out of 5 stars Great Book!
This book is great.I used it for a second course in linear algebra.I can really say that I understand the subject now, which I definitely couldn't before.The material is presented in a readable and yet rigorous and abstract fasion.My only problem with this book is that it leaves so many proofs to exercises and doesn't give the answers to most exercises.

5-0 out of 5 stars blows you away
This book blew me away! it's just great, it really explains everything (also an axiomatic approach of determinants which is very important to gain a thorough understanding of what determinants actually mean and which will help you when you are going to study multilinear algebra, exterior algebras in abstract algebra etc), the book gives you a good insight in the stucture of linear operators on a finite-dimensional vector space and provides lots of examples and useful applications (e.g. in economics and physics). There was a comment of one customer which criticized the fact that the theory doesn't offer an explanation of quotient spaces, this is true but in fact this is not important in the area of linear algebra, quotient structures should be studied in abstract algebra, when more algebraic structure has been developed so that one can really understand what quotients of algebraic structures are about. So the book is great, but I would recommend some knowledge about polynomials, fields, algebraic closure, vector space before starting to read this one.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent!
I am an undergraduate taking a linear algebra course. The course does not use this book, but my friends introduced this book to me and I simply love it.

1-0 out of 5 stars Not every scholar should write for students.
I was a student of Mr. Ross's, taking Discrete Math, a few years ago.He's is a very intelligent man and seemed to enjoy teaching.Unfortunately, he was not very good at it.And same goes for this text book of his.His attitude and approach in the classroom and the book's alike might be helpful if the student has already mastered the majority of the covered topics, in which case, this book becomes useless.

1-0 out of 5 stars I agree with what everyone else says....
This book will cost you much more than the principle "investment" of $100+, given the time required to interperet Ross's examples, and in many cases, un/re-learn the material.

1-0 out of 5 stars terrible book
I keep thinking as I'm forced to use this book for a college course, that Discrete Math would not be so confusing to me if not for this textbook. With a good textbook, I believe the concepts would not be very difficult, but this book makes them so. True, they have many examples - very few of which cover the complex things you are then asked to do in the Exercises. If I could give it negative stars, I would, since it doesn't teach us but confuses us. ... Read more

Editorial Review

"God created the integers," wrote mathematician Leopold Kronecker, "All the rest is the work of Man." In this collection of landmark mathematical works, editor Stephen Hawking has assembled the greatest feats humans have ever accomplished using just numbers and their brains. Each of the 17 sections opens with a historical introduction of the featured author, and proceeds to a faithful translation of their most famous work. While most mathematicians will already have complete editions of Isaac Newton's Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Stephen's talk of stars and the Universe
During his career as a cosmologist Professor Stephen Hawking has proposed many ground-breaking theories. His theories on the origins and nature of the universe are quite complex, but Stephen believes it is important to communicate his ideas to the general public. He has written two books - A Brief History of Time, and The Universe in a Nutshell, to try to explain his ideas to everyone. Hawking is the leading scientist on Quantum Mechanics -- which he describes the behaviour of the smallest particles in the Universe. Unlike everyday objects which tend to obey predictable laws, tiny objects like atoms can behave in very unpredictable ways. Hawking's theories include -- Steady State vs the Big Bang. When Hawking was a student, most cosmologists believed in the steady state theory. The steady state theory says the universe had no beginning and will exist in the same state forever. In contrast, the Big Bang theory says that everything in our Universe (and therefore space, matter and time) began in an explosion about 15 billion years ago. This is the theory that most cosmologists agree on today. The theory of relativity was one of the most important ideas of the twentieth century. Albert Einstein realised that space and time were not independent concepts - how you measure time depends on how you are moving through space, and vice versa. He suggested that gravitational fields could bend what he called space-time. Relativity predicts that time slows down near very massive objects like Black Holes. Black Holes are large stars that have undergone total gravitational collapse and whose gravity is so great that nothing, not even light, can escape from them. The heart of a Black Hole is infinitely dense, and is an example of what mathematicians call a singularity. Singularities are points where space and time are warped so much that the laws of physics break down. Singularities occur at the heart of black holes. The Big Bang is also a singularity; before the Big Bang, time does not mathematically exist.
4-0 out of 5 stars "The writing fingers having writ ...", In the Shoes of the "God"? - -From the Pen of Dr. Hawking .. ?!
It is no wonder that this great work has attracted so many diverse type of reviews from some of the very competent reviewers.The omissions of many good things bring to the mind the work of (Sir) Roger Penrose; really this great project pales in comparison.
2-0 out of 5 stars Need an editor, couldn't agree more
I really want to give this book at least 4 stars as I love the idea of encapsulating those great mathematical breakthroughs in one book and giving each a proper account instead of over simplistic summaries like many other math readings do.

5-0 out of 5 stars This is a _stellar_ text!
I've been swamped with homework in general, and have been behind in many classes.So, often times I won't have the foundations to understand the current concept my calc teacher is explaining in class.However, with this calc book, the explanations are so clear, and the in-text examples and practice problems so plentiful, that I can truly say I'm confident in my calculus skills, even without any teacher instruction.
4-0 out of 5 stars Harvard Summer Textbook
I just took Calculus 1 and 2 this summer at Harvard. Reading the whole textbook was neccessary to caught up the materials. Although I don't know my final course grade yet, I think this textbook was the most important tool to learn introductory calculus. I think this textbook prepared me well to take Multivatiable Calculus as well. I really liked easy examples and simple explanations. However, the problems after each section in every chapter are somewhat very difficult. I recommend this book!

This book is the 2nd Algebra book that I bought. I am the type of person who goes beyond what is given to me. This book is a great book for review purposes. I am over half way through the year in Algebra 1 and already know how to do everything that will be taught to me by the end of the year.

This is a book that is best for final preparation for the exam.Last year, in BC Calculus, I was absent for the series and sequences lessons due to an illness and I came back for a test studying through the Barron's books and I had trouble understanding it.The tests are definitely a lot harder than the real thing.I studied my [...] off and got a 5 on the actual exam as well as a 5 on the AB subscore.

4-0 out of 5 stars A Fair Book
This book is very comprehensive, too many details at times.The practice test is a little bit more difficult than the actual test.It is not very well organized or appealing to look.There aren't enough diagrams and pictures for visual learners.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not for beginners
Examples are few and offer little explaination.
2-0 out of 5 stars Very poor explanations
I dont think the other reviewers are quite accurate in their assessment of this text.The book does offer many examples, and the pseudocode is very helpful in implementing these methods.The real problem with this book is that many of the explanations of the methods are written in pseudocode.This makes learning the concepts extremely confusing and difficult, as they are written in code.The proofs are helpful, but with the confusing notation in iterative methods, there is no way near enough information to correctly learn what is going on.I took this class in graduate school and never used the book unless I wanted to see some code.My advice: Take notes from the professor, and if you need to code up a method, go to the library and copy down what you need.A VERY poor teaching aid!

2-0 out of 5 stars VERY DRY
I normally do not review books, but I feel so strongly negative towards this one.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good portable reference for professionals or graduate students
This is a pretty helpful Schaum's outline, in that most of the mathematical tables and formulas that an undergraduate math student would need are included. Material from geometry, calculus, differential equations, numerical methods, special functions and transforms, and probability and statistics are included. Plus, there are some examples of how to perform some types of calculations. There is even a section on calculating compound interest and the value of an annuity for those students of financial mathematics. Also, it is much easier than lugging around the infamous 2600 page "CRC Handbook of Mathematics and Physics." Of course, there are tradeoffs. This book has mathematical tables and formulas only, there are no physics equations.
4-0 out of 5 stars Schaum's Mathematical Handbook Review
The book has many differential and integrals that are not in my Calculus Textbook.Plus, it has formulas and equations from algebra, geometry, trignometry, and much more.I wish I had had this when I was in high school.

5-0 out of 5 stars Invaluable Reference!
If you're as big a fan of the Schaum's "Outline Series" as I am, and are a science/math student (or a working professional), you REALLY need to add this one to your library! Just as one should have a good one-volume encyclopedia (hint: The New Columbia Encyclopedia), and a good dictionary that doesn't require a fork-lift (hint: Oxford Encyclopedic English Dictionary). All those arcane, mind-emulsifying formulas and identities and equalities from geometry, trigonometry, calculus, probability & statistics that your professors blithely expected you to memorize (and which you just-as-blithely FORGOT when the semester ended!) are ALL collected here. About a half-inch thick (278pp, including an index!), and VERY comprehensive. More than just a compendium of formulas and tables, it offers many terrific explanations and illustrations. No more digging through your old textbooks (you DID keep them, didn't you? Yeah, right). Quick! What's the Euler-Maclaurin Summation formula? How do you determine the area of an ellipse? You DO remember those special indefinite integrals involving a(x^2)+ bx + c, don't you?

5-0 out of 5 stars Creates astrong foundation in math
Both of our kids used Saxon from 54 to Advanced Math and physics and they have done quite well with it.Although I am not a mathematician, my husband has a degree in mechanical engineering and highly approves of Saxon's format.
1-0 out of 5 stars I would hate to have had to learn math from this book.
I am nearing the completion of my PhD in physics at a major research university, so I have studied a fair amount of math in my day. All the math I have studied is geared toward problem solving and understanding how we can describe the world around us using mathematics. This, it seems to me, should be what we are trying to communicate to high school students. I have spent the last two months regularly tutoring a poor girl who is trying her best to learn Algebra II from this book that was inflicted upon her, and I think the book is a disgrace.
5-0 out of 5 stars Excellence in Mathematics
I have been using Saxon mathematics for 15 years, first as a 5th-12th grade student and more recently as a tutor. This program is excellent and like one of the other reviewers I can agree that even my "average" Saxon students have significantly better mathematics skills that those students using other programs.

5-0 out of 5 stars A delicious smorgasbord of inequalities
Professor Steele has done a wonderful job in developing the theory behind the Cauchy-Schwarz inequality.He starts off with the basic theory and then through the course of the book he teases out the limitless ways the inequality can be used. There is a breathtaking sweep of applications. What is interesting and valuable about his approach is that as he develops the building blocks he explains why or why not a particular approach might not work. I think there is quite a bit of Polya's inspiration in his approach.For instance, he gives Polya's proof of the Carleman inequality which, on it face, is almost outrageously unbelievable ( where does the "e" come from?) but by that stage you worked through the challenge problems and the other material and it is possible to see why the "e" makes sense.
5-0 out of 5 stars at the core of mathematics
this book deals in a friendly fashion with inequalities (and therefore) with the elementary use of convexity and integrals.
5-0 out of 5 stars Erudite and stimulating problem book in inequalities
The classic work in this field is Hardy, Littlewood, and Polya's "Inequalities", but as much as I admire these authors for their other works, I have never gotten much out of their inequality book. Steele's book is different: extremely clear, erudite, and thorough, it almost makes everything obvious. The subject of inequalities is something of a hodge-podge, and Steele isn't able to change that, but he helps tie it together with lots of forward and backward references and with returns to problems after we have learned new methods. A good example is Carleman's inequality (easily the most startling result in the book); Steele provides three different proofs spread out through the book, plus a continuous analog.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very Helpful Book
This book is very helpful because when someone helps me in Algebra 2, they can read me the problem out of book then I can work it out and they can tell me whether my answer is right or not or else it would take a much longer period of time because they would have to work out the problem and then tell me the answer and it may be wrong. This is the perfect book for kids who want to learn Algebra 2.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wow!
