#### Descent in Buildings (AM-190)

Princeton University Press 2015; US$ 75.00Descent in Buildings begins with the resolution of a major open question about the local structure of Bruhat-Tits buildings. The authors then put their algebraic solution into a geometric context by developing a general fixed point theory for groups acting on buildings of arbitrary type, giving necessary and sufficient conditions for the residues... more...

#### Boolean Representations of Simplicial Complexes and Matroids

Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 109.00This self-contained monograph explores a new theory centered around boolean representations of simplicial complexes leading to a new class of complexes featuring matroids as central to the theory. The book illustrates these new tools to study the classical theory of matroids as well as their important geometric connections. Moreover, many geometric... more...

#### Intervalldaten und generalisierte lineare Modelle

Springer Fachmedien Wiesbaden 2015; US$ 59.99Da eine direkte präzise Schätzung von Parametern mit Intervalldaten in generalisierten linearen Modellen nicht möglich ist, formuliert Michael Seitz die Intervallschätzungen der Parameter als Optimierungsproblem und schlägt numerische Verfahren vor, um diese zu lösen. Die Herausforderung liegt dabei in der numerischen Lösung des hochdimensionalen Optimierungsproblems.... more...

#### Wilson Lines in Quantum Field Theory

De Gruyter 2014; US$ 168.00The objective of this book is to get the reader acquainted with theoretical and mathematical foundations of the concept of Wilson loops in the context of modern quantum field theory. Itteaches how to perform independently with some elementary calculationson Wilson lines, and shows the recent development of the subject in different important... more...

#### Lattice Theory: Special Topics and Applications

Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 129.00George Grätzer's Lattice Theory: Foundation is his third book on lattice theory ( General Lattice Theory , 1978, second edition, 1998). In 2009, Grätzer considered updating the second edition to reflect some exciting and deep developments. He soon realized that to lay the foundation, to survey the contemporary field, to pose research problems, would... more...

Momentum Press 2014; US$ 29.95Elements of Algebraic Coding Systems is an introductory text to algebraic coding theory. In the first chapter, you?ll gain inside knowledge of coding fundamentals, which is essential for a deeper understanding of state-of-the-art coding systems. This book is a quick reference for those who are unfamiliar with this topic, as well as for use with specific... more...

#### Extended Abstracts Fall 2012

Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 99.00This volume features seventeen extended conference abstracts corresponding to selected talks given by participants at the CRM research program ?Automorphisms of Free Groups: Algorithms, Geometry and Dynamics?, which took place at the Centre de Recerca Matemàtica in Barcelona in fall 2012. Most of them are short articles giving preliminary presentations... more...

#### Duality Theories for Boolean Algebras with Operators

Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 109.00In this new text, Steven Givant?the author of several acclaimed books, including works co-authored with Paul Halmos and Alfred Tarski?develops three theories of duality for Boolean algebras with operators. Givant addresses the two most recognized dualities (one algebraic and the other topological) and introduces a third duality, best understood as... more...

#### Abelian Groups

Elsevier Science 2014; US$ 72.95Abelian Groups deals with the theory of abelian or commutative groups, with special emphasis on results concerning structure problems. More than 500 exercises of varying degrees of difficulty, with and without hints, are included. Some of the exercises illuminate the theorems cited in the text by providing alternative developments, proofs or counterexamples... more...

#### Linear Representations of the Lorentz Group

Elsevier Science 2014; US$ 72.95Linear Representations of the Lorentz Group is a systematic exposition of the theory of linear representations of the proper Lorentz group and the complete Lorentz group. This book consists of four chapters. The first two chapters deal with the basic material on the three-dimensional rotation group, on the complete Lorentz group and the proper Lorentz... more...
