Exploring University Mathematics 1 provides information pertinent to pure and applied mathematics. This book discusses a variety of topics, including sets and functions, relativity, integers, waves, isometric problems, and digital computers.

Organized into seven chapters, this book begins with an overview of the axiomatic way of introducing natural numbers that is completely satisfactory for mathematical purposes. This text then examines the special theory of relativity, which is a certain kind of geometry of four dimensions that connects three spatial coordinates x, y, z, and a time coordinate t. Other chapters consider the impact that the study of wave phenomena has had on the historical development of mathematics. This book discusses as well the development of the electronic digital computers. The final chapter deals with solving the isoperimetric problem.

This book is intended to be suitable for students about to embark upon a degree course of which mathematics is a major part.
