“Symmetry is one of the most important and pervasive principles in Mathematics, particularly in its Geometrical form. Here, mathematics combines with art and exhibits clearly its aesthetic appeal. Islamic patterns provide a marvellous illustration of symmetry and Drs. Abas and Salman perform a useful service by taking this as their theme and blending it with ideas on computer graphics.”

Foreword by Michael Atiyah“… a major contribution to the world of science and of particular value to the documention of the culture of Islam.”

N Gedal“… This book will allow readers to travel through time and space, from ancient ornaments to the most modern computer graphics patterns.”

C Pickover“Ever since the discovery of the existence of seventeen space groups in two dimensions by Fedorov in 1891, it has been speculated that all seventeen could be found in Islamic art. But it is in this book that this remarkable fact is for the first time detailed and analysed, with beautiful illustrations. Rarely is there such a thought-provoking blend of esthetics and geometry with abstraction.”

C N Yang“Abas and Salman have assembled a fascinating collection that combines art, history, culture, science, mathematics and philosophy. Their examples range from a 12th-century minaret in Uzbekistan via the Alhambra in Granada to modern computer graphics of Koranic calligraphy on dodecahedrons and tori. They conclude by speculating on the prospect of creating Islamic patterns in virtual reality, where ‘a seeker after unity in science and art would be able to submerge himself or herself in exquisite Alhambras of the mind’. Judging by the evidence presented here, it would be an unforgettable experience.”

New Scientist“The authors' love for Islamic art and symmetry shines through every page of this book.”

The Chemical Intelligencer“The authors' data can be used both for re-creating the original patterns as well as for the production of new variations and perhaps exploitation via CAD/CAM implementations. This involves a new method for extracting numerical data for use with computer graphics. The book is very richly illustrated with lovely color plates and some beautiful photographs.”

This practical guide eases you into "trig," starting with angles and triangles. As you progress, you will master essential concepts such as mapping, functions, vectors, and more. You will learn to transform polar coordinates as well as apply trigonometry in the real world. Detailed examples make it easy to understand the material, and end-of-chapter quizzes and a final exam help reinforce key ideas.

It's a no-brainer! You'll learn about:

Right triangles Circular functions Hyperbolic functions Inverse functions Geometrical optics Infinite-series expansions Trigonometry on a sphereSimple enough for a beginner, but challenging enough for an advanced student, Trigonometry DeMYSTiFieD, Second Edition, helps you master this essential subject.

- Includes both polar coordinates and complex numbers, unlike the competition.

- Teaches general principles that can be applied to a wide variety of problems.

- Avoids the mindless and excessive routine computations that characterize conventional textbooks.

The Humongous Book of Trigonometry Problems is the exception. Author Mike Kelley has taken what appears to be a typical trigonometry workbook, chock full of solved problems-more than 750!-and made notes in the margins adding missing steps and simplifying concepts and solutions, so what would be baffling to students is made perfectly clear. No longer will befuddled students wonder where a particular answer came from or have to rely on trial and error to solve problems. And by learning how to interpret and solve problems as they are presented in a standard trigonometry course, students become fully prepared to solve those difficult, obscure problems that were never discussed in class but always seem to find their way onto exams.

Maor, whose previous books have demystified the concept of infinity and the unusual number "e," begins by examining the "proto-trigonometry" of the Egyptian pyramid builders. He shows how Greek astronomers developed the first true trigonometry. He traces the slow emergence of modern, analytical trigonometry, recounting its colorful origins in Renaissance Europe's quest for more accurate artillery, more precise clocks, and more pleasing musical instruments. Along the way, we see trigonometry at work in, for example, the struggle of the famous mapmaker Gerardus Mercator to represent the curved earth on a flat sheet of paper; we see how M. C. Escher used geometric progressions in his art; and we learn how the toy Spirograph uses epicycles and hypocycles.

Maor also sketches the lives of some of the intriguing figures who have shaped four thousand years of trigonometric history. We meet, for instance, the Renaissance scholar Regiomontanus, who is rumored to have been poisoned for insulting a colleague, and Maria Agnesi, an eighteenth-century Italian genius who gave up mathematics to work with the poor--but not before she investigated a special curve that, due to mistranslation, bears the unfortunate name "the witch of Agnesi." The book is richly illustrated, including rare prints from the author's own collection. Trigonometric Delights will change forever our view of a once dreaded subject.

Rather than serving as a text or treatise, the book focuses on the essentials of trigonometry. All fourteen sections are organized in a manner that allows readers to advance sequentially or to skip around. The approach encourages memorization of ratios and formulas, and the practice problems offer ample opportunities to become comfortable with applying the trig ratios to a variety of settings.

Beginning in prehistoric times, Hahn proceeds to guide readers through the Greek, Roman, Islamic, Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance, and modern styles. He explores the unique features of the Pantheon, the Hagia Sophia, the Great Mosque of Cordoba, the Duomo in Florence, Palladio's villas, and Saint Peter's Basilica, as well as the U.S. Capitol Building. Hahn celebrates the forms and structures of architecture made possible by mathematical achievements from Greek geometry, the Hindu-Arabic number system, two- and three-dimensional coordinate geometry, and calculus. Along the way, Hahn introduces groundbreaking architects, including Brunelleschi, Alberti, da Vinci, Bramante, Michelangelo, della Porta, Wren, Gaudí, Saarinen, Utzon, and Gehry.

Rich in detail, this book takes readers on an expedition around the globe, providing a deeper understanding of the mathematical forces at play in the world's most elegant buildings.

1000+ Problems with Solutions and 100+ Articles

This book collects together the problems set out at end of each chapter in the author's Textbook of Plane Trigonometry along with the possible solutions, which are linked with an explanation of the sort of reasoning used in order to arrive at one of the answers. In many cases, several answers are given for one question.

The result is a book which can be used independently of the main volume.

This book helps in acquiring a better understanding of the basic principles of Plane Trigonometry and in revising a large amount of the subject matter quickly.

It is also to be noticed, that each Example, or Problem is here enunciated at the head of its Solution as well as all the relevant articles are part of the appendix; so that the book, though a fitting Companion to the textbook, is not inseparable from it, but may be used, as a Book of Exercises, with any other treatise on Plane Trigonometry.

We are grateful for this opportunity to put the materials into a consistent format, and to correct errors in the original publication that have come to our attention. We are highly indebted to Chandra Shekhar Kumar for the fruitful discussions which led to the idea of masterminding this entire project. He helped us put hundreds of pages of typographically difficult material into a consistent digital format.

The process of compiling this book has given us an incentive to improve the layout, to double-check almost all of the mathematical rendering, to correct all known errors, to improve the original illustrations by redrawing them with Till Tantau's marvelous TikZ.

Thus the book now appears in a form that we hope will remain useful for at least another generation.
