#### Italian Mathematics Between the Two World Wars

Birkhäuser Basel 2006; US$ 106.24During the first decades of the last century Italian mathematics was considered to be the third national school due to its importance and the high level of its numerous - searchers. The decision to organize the 1908 International Congress of Mathematicians in Rome (after those in Paris and Heidelberg) confirmed this position. Qualified Italian universities... more...

#### The Algebra of Secondary Cohomology Operations

Birkhäuser Basel 2006; US$ 106.24The algebra of primary cohomology operations computed by the well-known Steenrod algebra is one of the most powerful tools of algebraic topology. This book computes the algebra of secondary cohomology operations which enriches the structure of the Steenrod algebra in a new and unexpected way. The book solves a long-standing problem on the algebra... more...

#### Extremum Problems for Eigenvalues of Elliptic Operators

Birkhäuser Basel 2006; US$ 45.68Problems linking the shape of a domain or the coefficients of an elliptic operator to the sequence of its eigenvalues are among the most fascinating of mathematical analysis. In this book, we focus on extremal problems. For instance, we look for a domain which minimizes or maximizes a given eigenvalue of the Laplace operator with various boundary... more...

#### Handbook of Geometric Topology

Elsevier Science 2001; US$ 305.00Geometric Topology is a foundational component of modern mathematics, involving the study of spacial properties and invariants of familiar objects such as manifolds and complexes. This volume, which is intended both as an introduction to the subject and as a wide ranging resouce for those already grounded in it, consists of 21 expository surveys... more...
