#### Buildings

Springer New York 2008; US$ 46.41This book treats Jacques Tits's beautiful theory of buildings, making that theory accessible to readers with minimal background. It includes all the material of the earlier book Buildings by the second-named author, published by Springer-Verlag in 1989, which gave an introduction to buildings from the classical (simplicial) point of view. This... more...

#### Lie Theory

Birkhäuser Boston 2006; US$ 103.77Semisimple Lie groups, and their algebraic analogues over fields other than the reals, are of fundamental importance in geometry, analysis, and mathematical physics. Three independent, self-contained volumes, under the general title Lie Theory , feature survey work and original results by well-established researchers in key areas of semisimple Lie... more...

#### Probability on Compact Lie Groups

Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 65.94Probability theory on compact Lie groups deals with the interaction between ?chance? and ?symmetry,? a beautiful area of mathematics of great interest in its own sake but which is now also finding increasing applications in statistics and engineering (particularly with respect to signal processing). The author gives a comprehensive introduction to... more...

#### Singularities of Differentiable Maps, Volume 2

Birkhäuser Boston 2012; US$ 79.06This reprint covers anatomy and physiology of singularities of differentiable functions. Includes the topological structure of isolated critical points of holomorphic functions, the asymptotic behavior of integrals of the method of stationary phase, and more. more...

#### Singularities of Differentiable Maps, Volume 1

Birkhäuser Boston 2012; US$ 74.12This first of two volumes deals with the stability problem for smooth mappings, critical points of smooth functions, and caustics and wave front singularities, beginning at a basic level that presupposes a limited mathematical background. more...

#### Representation Theory of Lie Groups

Cambridge University Press 1980; US$ 104.00 US$ 85.28In 1977 a symposium was held in Oxford to introduce Lie groups and their representations to non-specialists. more...

#### Infinite Dimensional Lie Groups in Geometry and Representation Theory

World Scientific Publishing Company 2002; US$ 84.00This book constitutes the proceedings of the 2000 Howard conference on “Infinite Dimensional Lie Groups in Geometry and Representation Theory”. It presents some important recent developments in this area. It opens with a topological characterization of regular groups, treats among other topics the integrability problem of various infinite... more...

#### Lectures on Morse Homology

Springer Netherlands 2013; US$ 65.94This book is based on the lecture notes from a course we taught at Penn State University during the fall of 2002. The main goal of the course was to give a complete and detailed proof of the Morse Homology Theorem (Theo rem 7.4) at a level appropriate for second year graduate students. The course was designed for students who had a basic understanding... more...

#### Infinite Groups: Geometric, Combinatorial and Dynamical Aspects

Birkhäuser Basel 2006; US$ 109.91This book offers a panorama of recent advances in the theory of infinite groups. It contains survey papers contributed by leading specialists in group theory and other areas of mathematics. Topics include amenable groups, Kaehler groups, automorphism groups of rooted trees, rigidity, C*-algebras, random walks on groups, pro-p groups, Burnside groups,... more...

#### Kazhdan's Property (T)

Cambridge University Press 2008; US$ 103.00 US$ 84.46The first comprehensive introduction to the role of Property (T), with applications to an amazing number of fields within mathematics. more...
