Math book sale, North American shipping

Over time, I have accumulated many mathematics books. Inevitably, there were a few I acquired but were not really my style of book. So, I collected these up and am selling them here in the hope that other people can use them. To set up a purchase, email:

Payment can be made via Interac e-Transfer in Canada or Paypal in North America (if using Paypal add 3%). North American flat shipping 15 dollars, 10% discount if you buy more than one.

  • M. L. says:

    Cackled loudly when I reached “Higher Topos Theory”.

    • Jason Polak says:

      Haha. Well, I like some aspects of higher categories, but only for relations to other areas of math like applications to understanding K-theory. But in that case there are more appropriate sources. Lurie’s book may not be the best source in this regard.
