Convex Geometric Analysis
by Keith Ball, Vitali Milman
Publisher: Cambridge University Press 1998
Number of pages: 236
Convex bodies are at once simple and amazingly rich in structure. This collection involves researchers in classical convex geometry, geometric functional analysis, computational geometry, and related areas of harmonic analysis. It is representative of the best research in a very active field that brings together ideas from several major strands in mathematics.

Origami is the art of folding sheets of paper into interesting and beautiful shapes. In this text the author presents a variety of techniques for origami geometric constructions. The field has surprising connections to other branches of mathematics.
by Charles Howard Hinton - S. Sonnenschein & Co.
C. H. Hinton discusses the subject of the higher dimensionality of space, his aim being to avoid mathematical subtleties and technicalities, and thus enable his argument to be followed by readers who are not sufficiently conversant with mathematics.
