Visualizing Mathematics with 3D Printing
picture
Features:-

Wouldn’t it be great to experience three-dimensional ideas in three dimensions? In this book―the first of its kind―mathematician and mathematical artist Henry Segerman takes readers on a fascinating tour of two-, three-, and four-dimensional mathematics, exploring Euclidean and non-Euclidean geometries, symmetry, knots, tilings, and soap films. Visualizing Mathematics with 3D Printing includes more than 100 color photographs of 3D printed models. Readers can take the book’s insights to a new level by visiting its sister website, 3dprintmath.com, which features virtual three-dimensional versions of the models for readers to explore. These models can also be ordered online or downloaded to print on a 3D printer.

Combining the strengths of book and website, this volume pulls higher geometry and topology out of the realm of the abstract and puts it into the hands of anyone fascinated by mathematical relationships of shape. With the book in one hand and a 3D printed model in the other, readers can find deeper meaning while holding a hyperbolic honeycomb, touching the twists of a torus knot, or caressing the curves of a Klein quartic.

History of the German Element in Texas From 1820-1850: And Historical Sketches of the German Texas Singers' League and Houston Turnverein From 1853-1913 (Classic Reprint)
picture
Features:-
Excerpt from History of the German Element in Texas From 1820-1850: And Historical Sketches of the German Texas Singers' League and Houston Turnverein From 1853-1913

This plain, unpretending monograph has been written for the purpose of preserving to posterity the records of German achievements in the colonization and upbuilding of the great state of Texas. The pioneer's humble life and courageous struggles are very often left unnoticed by the historian, yet, without his brave and patient labors none of the great commonwealths of the United States would exist. The early pioneer, whose brawny arm wielded the axe, who cleared the forest and broke the virgin soil, is as much a maker of a country, as the statesman, the diplomatist and the soldier of today. His faithful work and often hazardous task are well worth remembering.

The different Texas histories used in the public schools unfortunately are lamentably deficient with respect to the important part the Germans have taken in the colonization and shaping of Texas. Some of them, which are used extensively in the schools of the State, do not make any mention at all of the German immigration and its bearing on the rapid development of Texas, while others at least state briefly that - "Texas is indebted to her German tillers of the soil for developments of great value, and which to Americans had been considered of impossible production in this climate." (Brown's School History of Texas, p. 218.) Prof. A. B. Faust of Cornell University devotes but ten pages to Texas in his History of the German Element in the United States.

Thus the present generation is even now almost ignorant of the men, who went intrepidly into an unknown country, who fearlessly braved the many dangers and hardships incident to pioneer-life and who helped to lay the foundation of the great State of Texas.

The publication of this unassuming book shall remedy this deficiency with proper accounts of the colonization of Tex…
