Mathematical Omnibus: Thirty Lectures on Classic Mathematics (Dmitry Fuchs, et al)

This is a good book with usage ranging from a coffee table book to a text for an undergraduate honors mathematics seminar. It can be used for either. It might also be a place to look for a quick undergraduate seminar lecture or as a beginning point for undergraduate research subjects. This is a fantastic book that not only is enjoyable to read but also stimulates the reader's mind.

Instead of concentrating on one field of mathematics, the book is made up of thirty lectures on several themes. The reader will gain knowledge of a variety of conclusions that frequently do not appear in either undergraduate or graduate curricula and will find linkages between traditional and modern concepts in algebra, combinatorics, geometry, and topology. The reader will recognize the coherence of each subject as compensation for their effort.

The chosen subjects all share the ability to demonstrate the harmony and grace of mathematics. Exercises are a common part of lectures, and some exercises have solutions or answers. The book has about 400 drawings, award-winning artwork, and over 100 portraits of mathematicians. These drawings are a particular feature. Even the most seasoned scholar finds surprises in almost every lesson.
