#### Classes of Finite Groups

Springer Netherlands 2006; US$ 97.37Many group theorists all over the world have been trying in the last twenty-five years to extend and adapt the magnificent methods of the Theory of Finite Soluble Groups to the more ambitious universe of all finite groups. This is a natural progression after the classification of finite simple groups but the achievements in this area are scattered... more...

#### Italian Mathematics Between the Two World Wars

Birkhäuser Basel 2006; US$ 111.92During 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$ 111.92The 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$ 48.12Problems 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...

#### Einführung in die Kombinatorik

De Gruyter 2003; US$ 49.00Ziel dieser vollständig überarbeiteten und erweiterten Neuauflage ist es, eine weitgehend elementare Einführung in ausgewählte Teile der Kombinatorik zu geben. Dabei wird stets versucht, nicht nur die Grundlagen darzustellen, sondern auch in jedem Kapitel exemplarisch einige tiefer liegende Resultate vollständig zu beweisen. Highlights... more...

#### An Introduction to Abstract Algebra

De Gruyter 2003; US$ 70.00This is a high level introduction to abstract algebra which is aimed at readers whose interests lie in mathematics and in the information and physical sciences. In addition to introducing the main concepts of modern algebra, the book contains numerous applications, which are intended to illustrate the concepts and to convince the reader of the utility... more...

#### From Combinatorics to Dynamical Systems

De Gruyter 2003; US$ 154.00This volume contains nine refereed research papers in various areas from combinatorics to dynamical systems, with computer algebra as an underlying and unifying theme. Topics covered include irregular connections, rank reduction and summability of solutions of differential systems, asymptotic behaviour of divergent series, integrability... 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...
