This book is an introduction to the language and standard proof methods of mathematics. It is a bridge from the computational courses (such as calculus or differential equations) that students typically encounter in their first year of college to a more abstract outlook. It lays a foundation for more theoretical courses such as topology, analysis and abstract algebra. Although it may be more meaningful to the student who has had some calculus, there is really no prerequisite other than a measure of mathematical maturity.

An eye-opening narrative of how geometric principles fundamentally shaped our world On a cloudy day in 1413, a balding young man stood at the entrance to the Cathedral of Florence, facing the ancient Baptistery across the piazza. As puzzled passers-by looked on, he raised a small painting to his face, then held a mirror in front of the painting. Few at the time understood what he was up to; even he barely had an inkling of what was at stake. But on that day, the master craftsman and engineer Filippo Brunelleschi would prove that the world and everything within it was governed by the ancient science of geometry. In Proof!, the award-winning historian Amir Alexander traces the path of the geometrical vision of the world as it coursed its way from the Renaissance to the present, shaping our societies, our politics, and our ideals. Geometry came to stand for a fixed and unchallengeable universal order, and kings, empire-builders, and even republican revolutionaries would rush to cast their rule as the apex of the geometrical universe. For who could doubt the right of a ruler or the legitimacy of a government that drew its power from the immutable principles of Euclidean geometry? From the elegant terraces of Versailles to the broad avenues of Washington, DC and on to the boulevards of New Delhi and Manila, the geometrical vision was carved into the landscape of modernity. Euclid, Alexander shows, made the world as we know it possible.

Proof Theory and Automated Deduction is written for final-year undergraduate and first-year post-graduate students. It should also serve as a valuable reference for researchers in logic and computer science. It covers basic notions in logic, with a particular stress on proof theory, as opposed to, for example, model theory or set theory; and shows how they are applied in computer science, and especially the particular field of automated deduction, i.e. the automated search for proofs of mathematical propositions. We have chosen to give an in-depth analysis of the basic notions, instead of giving a mere sufficient analysis of basic and less basic notions. We often derive the same theorem by different methods, showing how different mathematical tools can be used to get at the very nature of the objects at hand, and how these tools relate to each other. Instead of presenting a linear collection of results, we have tried to show that all results and methods are tightly interwoven. We believe that understanding how to travel along this web of relations between concepts is more important than just learning the basic theorems and techniques by rote. Audience: The book is a valuable reference for researchers in logic and computer science.

The book that will change everything you believe to be true! BOOK REVIEW With more than 150 Charts and Graphics, Proof is the only book that mathematically and graphically proves the existence of God with numbers, logic, biblical scripture, and the sacred Gnostic teachings of Jesus. Evidence Set 1 The first evidence set presented constructs a numerical representative of New Jerusalem of Revelation 21 based on Dimensional Plot Charts that make use of Unified Field Theory, the 666 prophecy within the bible, and Jesus’ sacred teachings. Evidence Set 2 The second evidence set reverse engineers the Dimensional Creation Process to reveal the Heavens, Death, Hades, immortality, multiple universes, and parallel dimensions; based on Jesus’ sacred Gnostic teaching within the Pistis Sophia, and the Sophia (Wisdom) of Jesus Christ. Evidence Set 3 The third evidence set proves the legitimacy of both the Old and New Testament, and reveals the true intent of biblical prophecy and the reason the Bible was coded. Numerical Evidence Creation of New Jerusalem The numerical representative of New Jerusalem is confirmed by the names of the 12 Tribes of Israel and Jesus' 12 ApostlesThe Material Realm, Heavens, Death, and Hades The realms are confirmed by the reverse engineering of the process used to replicate the creation process and New Jerusalem The evidence proves the existence of the Heavens, Hell, immortality, multiple universes and parallel dimensions. Poof is a scientific and metaphysic doctoral discourse, written to ensure that anyone with a basic understanding of the English language and elementary math skills can comprehend the cipher matrixes, and charts. Proof offers real insight and numerical confirmation of some of life's most challenging questions and mysteries: Proof of Life after DeathThe reason for Man's ExistenceThe Divine Plan for mankindReveals the biblical codes that will help to stabilize our Social and Economic Systems Proof is written to ensure that anyone with a basic understanding of the English language and elementary math skills can comprehend the cipher matrixes, and charts. Proof is educational, spiritual, and inspirational. The reader is not only drawn into the story with charts proving the validity of both Biblical and Gnostic scriptures that prove the existence of the heavens, hell, and immortality; they will also learn the relevant roles Greek gods such as Zeus and Aphrodite play in Jesus’ sacred teachings of the reincarnation and ascendance process. Readers will also learn of the biblical plans that will unite our world and prevent Armageddon. A great read for individuals intrigued by: ascension, immortality, consciousness and spiritual growth, string theory, cosmology, multiple universe, parallel dimensions, mathematics, metaphysic, mysticism, astrology, kabbalah, gematria, sacred knowledge, conspiracy, prophecy, the apocalypse or the end of the world, atheism, ancient civilizations, Greek gods, ancient Egypt, Israel, social justice and economics – they all play prominent roles in the discoveries within the book of Proof.

The mathematical heroes of this book are "perfect proofs": brilliant ideas, clever connections and wonderful observations that bring new insight and surprising perspectives on basic and challenging problems from Number Theory, Geometry, Analysis, Combinatorics, and Graph Theory. Thirty beautiful examples are presented here. They are candidates for The Book in which God records the perfect proofs - according to the late Paul Erdös, who himself suggested many of the topics in this collection. The result is a book which will be fun for everybody with an interest in mathematics, requiring only a very modest (undergraduate) mathematical background.

This volume contains articles covering a broad spectrum of proof theory, with an emphasis on its mathematical aspects. The articles should not only be interesting to specialists of proof theory, but should also be accessible to a diverse audience, including logicians, mathematicians, computer scientists and philosophers. Many of the central topics of proof theory have been included in a self-contained expository of articles, covered in great detail and depth. The chapters are arranged so that the two introductory articles come first; these are then followed by articles from core classical areas of proof theory; the handbook concludes with articles that deal with topics closely related to computer science.

Photographs from Four Generations of a Texas Family

The Byrd Williams Collection at the University of North Texas contains more than 10,000 prints and 300,000 negatives, accumulated by four generations of Texas photographers, all named Byrd Moore Williams. Beginning in the 1880s in Gainesville, the four Byrds photographed customers in their studios, urban landscapes, crime scenes, Pancho Villa’s soldiers, televangelists, and whatever aroused their unpredictable and wide-ranging curiosity. When Byrd IV sat down to choose a selection from this dizzying array, he came face to face with the nature of mortality and memory, his own and his family’s. In some cases these photos are the only evidence remaining that someone lived and breathed on this earth. The 193 photos selected here are organized into thematic sections such as “Landscapes,” “Violence and Religion,” and “Darkness.” They are significant not just for the range of subjects, but for the inclusion of a variety of examples of the evolving photographic technology from the 1880s to the present. This book is an unprecedented portrait of both photographic history and the history of Texas, as well as a record of one unique family. Roy Flukinger’s Foreword places the photographs in a historical context, and Anne Wilkes Tucker’s Afterword discusses the ethics of memory and preservation.
