For the second edition, We added five new historical sketches on the tangent function in trigonometry, logarithms, conic sections, irrational numbers, and differential calculus.

An Introduction, 2nd ed. Such a visit offers a glimpse of a part of mathematics which is both important and fun, and which also is something of a meeting point between algebra and analysis. In the course of their undergraduate careers, most mathematics majors see little beyond “standard mathematics: The expanded edition is published by MAA Press. There are no discussion topics on this book yet.

It’s a great opportunity to explore stuff I would like to know better but which my studying doesn’t allow. Burger and Struppeck show that for a prime and a positive integer. Contact the MathWorld Team. The expanded edition includes problems and projects.

More recently, p-adic num bers have shown up in other areas of mathematics, and even in physics. Pathways from the Past is an offshoot from Math through the Ages. There are two things I love in particular: Email Required, but never shown.

Here is the full list. Aside from a couple of broadly introductory chapters, the book looks at groups, group actions, and group representation; rings and their modules; fields, skew fields, and Galois theory. Idriss Chakib is currently reading it May 27, My research interests are: If you need to see me at a different time, please email me to make an appointment. It is desperately out-of-date, since the field has progressed a lot since I wrote it in the late o-adic.
