Anyone know how Amazon decides on such things? Is there some algorithm they use that every now and then pops out a discount on one of their listings? Are they partial to mathematics students and just want to offer cheaper books for them? [Not likely, my Marcel-Dekker book is listed at about the same price as a Mouton Rothschild.]

I use Amazon discount finder to search for discounts on amazon. It covers most categories and has a detailed book & movie search.
