Mathematical science professors among authors of new textbook
McKenzie Lamb, associate professor of mathematical sciences, and Andrea Young, assistant professor of mathematical sciences, were part of a team of authors for the textbook Knots, Molecules and the Universe: An Introduction to Topology, recently published by the American Mathematical Society.
The book is designed to be read by undergraduate students and instructors interested in elementary topology.
According to the book’s description on the AMS bookstore website, “This book is an elementary introduction to geometric topology and its applications to chemistry, molecular biology, and cosmology. It does not assume any mathematical or scientific background, sophistication, or even motivation to study mathematics. It is meant to be fun and engaging while drawing students in to learn about fundamental topological and geometric ideas. Though the book can be read and enjoyed by nonmathematicians, college students, or even eager high school students, it is intended to be used as an undergraduate textbook.”
