#### The Homotopy Category of Simply Connected 4-Manifolds

Cambridge University Press 2003; US$ 76.00Homotopy of 4-manifolds for researchers and graduate students. more...

#### Low-Dimensional Topology

Cambridge University Press 1982; US$ 72.00This volume consists of the proceedings of a conference held at the University College of North Wales in July of 1979. 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...

#### Representation Theory and Higher Algebraic K-Theory

Taylor and Francis 2006; US$ 129.95Representation Theory and Higher Algebraic K-Theory is the first book to present higher algebraic K-theory of orders and group rings as well as characterize higher algebraic K-theory as Mackey functors that lead to equivariant higher algebraic K-theory and their relative generalizations. Thus, this book makes computations of higher K-theory of group... 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...

#### Topology and Physics

World Scientific Publishing Company 2008; US$ 193.00This unique volume, resulting from a conference at the Chern Institute of Mathematics dedicated to the memory of Xiao-Song Lin, presents a broad connection between topology and physics as exemplified by the relationship between low-dimensional topology and quantum field theory.The volume includes works on picture (2+1)-TQFTs and their applications... more...
