#### Graph Coloring Problems

Wiley 2011; US$ 177.00Contains a wealth of information previously scattered in research journals, conference proceedings and technical reports. Identifies more than 200 unsolved problems. Every problem is stated in a self-contained, extremely accessible format, followed by comments on its history, related results and literature. The book will stimulate research and help... more...

#### Equivariant Degree Theory

De Gruyter 2003; US$ 196.00This book presents a new degree theory for maps which commute with a group of symmetries. This degree is no longer a single integer but an element of the group of equivariant homotopy classes of maps between two spheres and depends on the orbit types of the spaces. The authors develop completely the theory and applications of this degree... more...

#### Discontinuous Groups of Isometries in the Hyperbolic Plane

De Gruyter 2002; US$ 182.00Fuchsian groups play a central role in various important fields of mathematics. The current book is based on what became known as the famous Fenchel-Nielsen manuscript. Jakob Nielsen (1890-1959) started this project well before World War II, Werner Fenchel (1905-1988) joined later and overtook the much of the preparation of the manuscript. Professor... more...

#### Beyond Perturbation

Taylor and Francis 2003; US$ 154.95Solving nonlinear problems is inherently difficult, and the stronger the nonlinearity, the more intractable solutions become. Analytic approximations often break down as nonlinearity becomes strong, and even perturbation approximations are valid only for problems with weak nonlinearity. This book introduces a powerful new analytic method for nonlinear... more...

#### Shape Optimization And Optimal Design

Taylor and Francis 2001; US$ 283.00This volume presents developments and advances in modelling passive and active control systems governed by partial differential equations. It emphasizes shape analysis, optimal shape design, controllability, nonlinear boundary control, and stabilization. The authors include essential data on exact boundary controllability of thermoelastic plates with... more...

#### Homology

Wiley 2008; US$ 167.00'Homology' as a concept became increasingly elusive during the course of the 20th century. The central debates and controversies concern both fundamental definitions and the nature of the criteria by which homology is judged. Attempts to move away from comparative morphology to ideas based on developmental pathways have tended to founder on the... more...

#### Higher Topos Theory (AM-170)

Princeton University Press 2009; US$ 78.50Higher category theory is generally regarded as technical and forbidding, but part of it is considerably more tractable: the theory of infinity-categories, higher categories in which all higher morphisms are assumed to be invertible. In Higher Topos Theory , Jacob Lurie presents the foundations of this theory, using the language of weak Kan complexes... more...

#### New Developments in the Theory of Knots

World Scientific Publishing Company 1990; US$ 229.00This reprint volume focuses on recent developments in knot theory arising from mathematical physics, especially solvable lattice models, Yang-Baxter equation, quantum group and two dimensional conformal field theory. This volume is helpful to topologists and mathematical physicists because existing articles are scattered in journals of many different... more...
