Choice Outstanding Academic Title for 2013

Choice named New Horizons in Geometry by Tom Apostol and Mamikon Mnatsakanian an Outstanding Academic Title for 2013.



New Horizons in Geometry represents the fruits of 15 years of work in geometry by a remarkable team of prize-winning authors—Tom Apostol and Mamikon Mnatsakanian. Apostol and Mamikon provide fresh and powerful insights into geometry that requires only a modest background in mathematics. Using new and intuitively rich methods, they give beautifully illustrated proofs of results, the majority of which are new, and frequently develop extensions of familiar theorems that are often surprising and sometimes astounding. It is mathematical exposition of the highest order. The hundreds of full color illustrations by Mamikon are visually enticing and provide great motivation to read further and savor the wonderful results. It is an understatement to say that Apostol and Mamikon have breathed new life into geometry.
