2-0 out of 5 stars To long
I found this book to be long and drawn out. The chapters are very wordy and dont really get to the point.

5-0 out of 5 stars The (Required) Undergraduate Handbook for Beginning Mathematics
"Proofs and Fundamentals" by Ethan Bloch is undoubtly one of the few books I'd say would be required when beginning (and a light refrence as you progress) the undergraduate mathematics curriculum in most US schools.
5-0 out of 5 stars an excellent introduction to formal mathematics
This book is an excellent and thorough intorduction to the world of formal mathematics. Typically, a new mathematics student finds himself or herself picking up random mathematical concepts and techniques of proof along the way, without ever having the chance to sit down and go through the fundamentals of formal mathematics and proof. This book covers a little of everything, and has a thorough introduction to sets, functions, inverses, equivalence and order relations. There are also sections on introductory number theory, algebra, combinatorics, logic, and much more. It provides an excellent overview for the student who will be using these tools on a daily basis, for the layman who is interested in finding out what mathematics is really about, or for the seasoned mathematician who needs a good general reference book. There are also extensive and thorough sections on the construction and writing of mathematical proofs -- somthing on which many new and not-so-new mathematicians could use some improvement. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Clear explanations and fresh approach that enables real understanding
This is a lovely book, which gives a fresh and invigorating account of current developments in computability theory. Personally, I don't feel it can helpfully be compared to Cutland's computability text, as though that book supplies enough background for some undergraduate introductory courses in computability theory, it doesn't reach beyond that level. Cooper sensibly avoids using the same approach as Cutland for the area of over-lap -there would be little point duplicating an existing, in-print work- instead, he has in the early chapters given an intuitive approach to those topics which helps the reader understand what is going on under the morass of symbols which so often obscure rather than promote comprehension. Nor can much useful comparison be drawn with Hartley Roger's classic text, as the main bulk of Cooper's book is concerned with material which post-dates Hartley Rogers.
3-0 out of 5 stars Not recommended as a starting point
The book is divided into roughly three parts: an introduction to computability theory, followed by a more advanced introduction to the theory of degrees of unsolvability and decidable theories, and finally some newer material on computation and structure.

4-0 out of 5 stars Not for an Idle Read
This book is a tough read.For starters, there is the subject matter.If you have had a traditional undergraduate training in mathematics, then talking about sets and elements with axioms that deal with functions rather than elements is a stretch.Then, there is the authors' presentation which mixes axiomatic category theory and naive set theory.The approach does motivate category theory with set theory and it does explain how set theory might be replaced with category theory but, as written, it also leaves the reader unsure which mode of thinking is required at any particular moment.This uncertainty is not likely to be fully resolved without a teacher or a second reading.You need one or the other to navigate some early chapters with knowledge gained later. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Up-to-date reference.
This thin book (175 pages) provides the newcomer or graduate student with an illustrated introduction to geometric measure theory: the basic ideas, terminology, and results. The author has included a few fundamentalarguments and a superficial discussion of the regularity theory, but hisgoal is merely to introduce the subject and make the standard text,"Geometric Measure Theory" by Federer, more accesible. Thissecond edition includes updated material and references, corrections, and anew chapter on soap bubble clusters.Read more

I full concur with Greenberg's review. Assimilating Potter's book is also much easier if one has had a prior introduction to mathematical logic and axiomatic set theory.
5-0 out of 5 stars Unique blending of mathematics and philosophy
I believe one has to have some familiarity with logic and set theory in order to fully appreciate this wonderful book. Granting that, reading it was the first time I have ever read a mathematics book that I could hardly put down, it was so fascinating.

Like the other books of the Schaum's Outline series, "Theory and Problems of Set Theory and Related Topics" provides you with hundreds of problems, which have been worked out step by step, to show you how the theory works.This is similar to a professor in college showing you the problems on the board, but these don't get erased and are much more legible.5-0 out of 5 stars Provides essential knowledge to e-commerce security pros
This is an excellent introductory text on set theory.It provides a fast and thorough coverage of the basics in an economical, if terse, style.If you diligently go through this short 200 page book you will have a solid grasp of set theory that you can immediately use on the job. 5-0 out of 5 stars excellent book for non-mathematicians
This is THE book to learn set theory if you are not amathematician or mathematics major. Set theory is presented in a non-axiomatic manner. All the basics are covered: elementary set theory, cardinal and ordinal numbers, axiom of choice, and a brief intro to logic. The number of examples is huge. If you need examples when learning,then this is the book for you! ... Read more

This is a swell introduction to analysis. Plenty of good examples, with a well-ordered approach to the material.

5-0 out of 5 stars An easy and practical approach to fuzzy set theory
The book gives a clear and intuitive description of fuzzy math and its application. The discussions are done neatly and nicely. It doesn't get into hardcore math discussions very much; instead, it focuses on applications and practice. Therefore, it doesn't take much time to get the idea, and you are not bothered with very complex math proofs. The level of the theory is also limited to what needed in application. To my belief this is one of the best books for engineers and applied mathematicians.

5-0 out of 5 stars Review about Zimmermann's Book !

3-0 out of 5 stars He hasn't yet given up on the 'paradoxes'
You'll notice that although GG still lists Cantor's "paradox" in his index, in the text he doesn't quite bring himself to say that there is such a thing.Why not?Because he has read Garciadiego's BERTRAND RUSSELL AND THE ORIGINS OF THE SET-THEORETIC 'PARADOXES,' which shows quite clearly that there is no such thing as Cantor's paradox, or the Burali-Forti paradox, or Russell's for that matter.The so-called "set-theoretic paradoxes" were for the most part inventions of Russell, and not a single one from the period, comes out as anything but a meaningless formulation.
4-0 out of 5 stars Not what you might expect
I hoped that reading this book would give me a better understanding, in an historical context, of the issues involved in the controversies about the foundations of mathematics a century ago.I found this book fairly interesting, and it was a quick read, but it seems to be written for those who already have an essentially complete understanding of those issues, since the ideas themselves were addressed only tangentially.The focus of the book is much more on:who published what paper when, to what journal did he send it, who was the editor of the journal, who refereed the paper, to whom were offprints sent, in what archives can the manuscript be found, who read whose paper when, who met whom at what conference, who used what notation in writing which paper.This is very much a documentary history, and historians of mathematics will probably love it, but I am probably not the only mathematician who will not find this book completely satisfying.

5-0 out of 5 stars The best book of its kind in existence
I have owned a copy for over a year, and not a week goes by in which I do not consult it. The 50pp bibliography alone is worth the price.

1-0 out of 5 stars Fuzzy subjectivity
I find crisp sets problematic. Hoping to resolve some of the problems (for qualitative and comparative research) of crisp sets, I turned to this text. Ragin repeats himself time and time again in this text. Some complex topics (concentration, dilation, complex theoretical statements) receive minimal attention, leaving readers out in the cold. He fails to establish the efficacy of fuzzy sets for sufficiency or necessity. Ragin also fails to support why necessity is either valuable or possible in social sciences. I would seek to argue that necessity is virtually impossible to determine in social sciences. J.S. Mill was no sociologist. Also, when Ragin attempts to illustrate the application of fuzzy-set methods to IMF protests (chapter 10), he seems to neglect to include certain steps in the calculation of membership scores in the set with severe IMF protests. Ragin does not provide enough qualitative data to support why each country was indicated to have membership in his seven levels of IMF protest membership (p. 265). Also, when Ragin discusses assessment of fuzzy set membership (p. 165 - 171), I feel that fuzzy set membership assignment provides too much flexibility to individual researchers that severely hampers retestability (or even critical analysis) of the data. Ragin skirts the issue of researcher subjectivity when he makes statements like (p. 166, and similar statements in other portions of the text): "The steps I sketch here assume that researchers have a solid understanding of the concepts appearing in their theories and that they have an extensive base of relevant substantive knowledge as well." I certainly feel that the 'crisp-set approach' can be highly problematic, but Ragin's fuzzy-set approach does not seem to be a well-formulated answer to social scientific quandrys presented by crisp sets.

4-0 out of 5 stars useful place to start but by no means the final story
There are two aspects to Ragin's book. The first part of the book is really an update of his general methodological program first set forth in The Comparative Method. It does add some new things to the older material and is thus worth the look. Ragin has some important points to make and deserves to be paid careful attention by social scientists of both qualitative and quantitative traditions. Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Interesting but very uneven
The stated goal of the book is to have no prerequisites other than freshman math, but you really need at least undergrad logic and set theory. It is a thick book and covers a lot of interesting stuff, but there can be a frustrating lack of order and detail. He is an engaging writer, but sloppy in that he gives only part of the information you need to understand something, forgetting that he didn't give it or you don't know it. Sections are often either too sketchy or wordy and unfocused. Sometimes, though, he comes through with an elegant explanation of something. He is at his best when relating recursion theory to science, philosophy, and other branches of math. These discussions tend to be rather handwavy, but he gives references to the literature. The book as a whole is not very unified and it doesn't clearly indentify and relate the central ideas of recursion theory, so it wouldn't make a good introductory text. But it is a good reference for those with a moderate background. ... Read more
