This book provides a transition from the formula-full aspects of the beginning study of college level mathematics to the rich and creative world of more advanced topics. It is designed to assist the student in mastering the techniques of analysis and proof that are required to do mathematics. Along with the standard material such as linear algebra, construction of the real numbers via Cauchy sequences, metric spaces and complete metric spaces, there are three projects at the end of each chapter that form an integral part of the text. These projects include a detailed discussion of topics such as group theory, convergence of infinite series, decimal expansions of real numbers, point set topology and topological groups. They are carefully designed to guide the student through the subject matter. Together with numerous exercises included in the book, these projects may be used as part of the regular classroom presentation, as self-study projects for students, or for Inquiry Based Learning activities presented by the students.

Sex can be the means to an end, but what happens at the end of the means? A heart-warming tale of alpha males facing a precipitous slide-for beta or for worse. Woody Steele is one of the richest men on the planet. Sadly one of his greatest assets has been recently downsized-sorry Casanova. Ivan Greenbriar, his fellow billionaire nemesis and creep extraordinaire, turns every activity into a pissing contest even when he's alone. Sargent Scanlon, a hero cop solely on the merits of getting shot in the nuts, doesn't know what fear is until he must match wits with his odious fourteen-year-old stepdaughter-she's a crime against humanity. Meanwhile, looking down from above is Colonel Pavlenko, the world's oldest practicing Stalinist (mutually assured destruction anyone?). This is a real time, real world story about manly men-and their women, women who are ready to break through the glass ceiling, even if they have to use their mate as a battering ram.
The topic of design is vital to our Army's ability to prevail in the complex, ambiguous environment of the 21st century. Of the many lessons drawn from over seven years of wartime experience, one that stands out prominently is the critical need to improve our ability to exercise the cognitive aspects of battle command – understanding and visualizing. In this era of persistent conflict, we confront challenges that are often illdefined and multifaceted. Where such “hybrid threats” defy convention and easy definition, traditional Cold War planning paradigms alone are insufficient. Design is not a process, but a set of “thinking tools” that complement and reinforce our operations process with a rational, logical approach to an increasingly complex and dynamic operational environment.
