Part of the Modern Birkhäuser Classics book series (MBC)


THE HEART of the mathematical experience is, of course, mathematics itself. This is the material in the technical journals, monographs, and, if deemed sufficiently intersting and important, the material that is taught. Whilke it is not the purpose of this book to teach any portion of mathematics in a systematic way, it would be a serious omission if we did not expound a number of individual topics. We have selected six.
