Set Theory, by Felix Hausdorff

From the Preface (1937): “The present book has as its purpose an exposition of the most important theorems of the theory of sets, along with complete proofs, so that the reader should not find it necessary to go outside this book for supplementary details while, on the other hand, the book should enable him to undertake a more detailed study of the voluminous literature on the subject”.

Rings of operators, by Irving Kaplansky

Harmonic analysis on symmetric spaces and applications, by Audrey Terras

Fredholm theory in Banach spaces, by Anthony Francis Ruston

In this book, Dr Ruston presents analogues for operators on Banach spaces of Fredholm’s solution of integral equations of the second kind. Much of the presentation is based on research carried out over the last twenty-five years and has never appeared in book form before. Dr Ruston begins with the construction for operators of finite rank, using Fredholm’s original method as a guide. He then considers formulae that have structure similar to those obtained by Fredholm, using, and developing further, the relationship with Riesz theory. In particular, he obtains bases for the finite-dimensional subspaces figuring in the Riesz theory. Finally he returns to the study of specific constructions for various classes of operators. Dr Ruston has made every effort to keep the presentation as elementary as possible, using arguments that do not require a very advanced background. Thus the book can be read with profit by graduate students as well as specialists working in the general area of functional analysis and its applications.

Global Warming: The science of climate change, by Frances Drake

Extremely topical over recent years, global warming has been the subject of a huge and growing amount of literature. Current literature however tends to fall into two camps: that which is highly scientific in nature and inaccessible to the average student, and that which is directed to the “lay” reader and lacks detail required by students. This book successfully bridges this gap, providing an accessible explanation of the physical mechanisms of global warming–discussed within the wider context of climate change.

Computational Statistics in Climatology, by Iliak Polyak

Scientific descriptions of the climate have traditionally been based on the study of average meteorological values taken from different positions around the world. In recent years however it has become apparent that these averages should be considered with other statstics that ultimately characterize spatial and temporal variability.

Set Theory, de Felix Hausdorff

Del Prefacio (1937): “Este libro tiene como propósito la exposición de los teoremas más importantes de la teoría de conjuntos junto con sus pruebas completas, de tal forma que el lector no necesite acudir a otras fuentes fuera del libro en busca de detalles suplementarios, mientras que, por otra parte, debería capacitarle para llevar a cabo un estudio más detallado de la voluminosa literatura sobre el tema”.

Global Warming: The science of climate change, by Frances Drake

El calentamiento global es un tópico ampliamente debatido en años recientes y ha sido objeto de mucha y creciente literatura. La actual, sin embargo, tiende a caer en dos campos: o bien es altamente especializada e inaccesible al estudiante medio, o bien está dirigida al laico en la materia y obvia los detalles necesarios para el estudiante. Este libro rellena el hueco de forma satisfactoria.

Computational Statistics in Climatology, de Iliak Polyak

Las descripciones científicas del clima se han basado tradicionalmente en el estudio de los valores meteorológicos medios tomados desde distintas posiciones alrededor del globo. En años recientes se ha entendido que estas medias deberían considerarse junto con otros estadísticos que caracterizan en última instancia la variabilidad espacial y temporal.
