#### An invitation to general algebra and universal constructions

Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 89.99Rich in examples and intuitive discussions, this book presents General Algebra using the unifying viewpoint of categories and functors. Starting with a survey, in non-category-theoretic terms, of many familiar and not-so-familiar constructions in algebra (plus two from topology for perspective), the reader is guided to an understanding and appreciation... more...

#### Index Analysis

Springer London 2015; US$ 129.00The featured review of the AMS describes the author?s earlier work in the field of approach spaces as, ?A landmark in the history of general topology?. In this book, the author has expanded this study further and taken it in a new and exciting direction. The number of conceptually and technically different systems which characterize approach spaces... more...

#### Strukturierungen von Termen und Gleichungen

Springer Fachmedien Wiesbaden 2014; US$ 59.99Christian Rüede geht davon aus, dass Schwierigkeiten der Schülerinnen und Schüler beim algebraischen Umformen auf Probleme beim Strukturieren von Termen und Gleichungen zurückzuführen sind. Er verschiebt den Fokus von der Struktur auf die Strukturierung eines Terms und einer Gleichung und stellt so die individuellen Lern- und Denkwege in den Vordergrund.... more...

#### Gottlieb and Whitehead Center Groups of Spheres, Projective and Moore Spaces

Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 89.99This is a monograph that details the use of Siegel?s method and the classical results of homotopy groups of spheres and Lie groups to determine some Gottlieb groups of projective spaces or to give the lower bounds of their orders. Making use of the properties of Whitehead products, the authors also determine some Whitehead center groups of projective... more...

#### Homological Mirror Symmetry and Tropical Geometry

Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 59.99The relationship between Tropical Geometry and Mirror Symmetry goes back to the work of Kontsevich and Y. Soibelman (2000), who applied methods of non-archimedean geometry (in particular, tropical curves) to Homological Mirror Symmetry. In combination with the subsequent work of Mikhalkin on the ?tropical? approach to Gromov-Witten theory and the work... more...

#### Triangulated Categories. (AM-148)

Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 108.00The first two chapters of this book offer a modern, self-contained exposition of the elementary theory of triangulated categories and their quotients. The simple, elegant presentation of these known results makes these chapters eminently suitable as a text for graduate students. The remainder of the book is devoted to new research, providing, among... more...

#### Representation Theory

Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 149.00Introducing the representation theory of groups and finite dimensional algebras, first studying basic non-commutative ring theory, this book covers the necessary background on elementary homological algebra and representations of groups up to block theory. It further discusses vertices, defect groups, Green and Brauer correspondences and Clifford... more...

#### Analysis of Categorical Data with R

CRC Press 2014; US$ 89.95Learn How to Properly Analyze Categorical Data Analysis of Categorical Data with R presents a modern account of categorical data analysis using the popular R software. It covers recent techniques of model building and assessment for binary, multicategory, and count response variables and discusses fundamentals, such as odds ratio and probability... more...

#### Topoi

Elsevier Science 2014; US$ 72.95The first of its kind, this book presents a widely accessible exposition of topos theory, aimed at the philosopher-logician as well as the mathematician. It is suitable for individual study or use in class at the graduate level (it includes 500 exercises). It begins with a fully motivated introduction to category theory itself, moving always from the... more...

#### Towards the Mathematics of Quantum Field Theory

Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 129.00This book introduces the mathematical methods of theoretical and experimental quantum field theory, emphasizing coordinate-free presentations of the objects in play. Offers examples of classical field theories, discusses renormalization methods and more. more...
