#### Differentialrechnung für Höhlenmenschen und andere Anfänger

Springer Fachmedien Wiesbaden 2015; US$ 9.99Jürgen Beetz führt zuerst in den Ursprung der erdachten Geschichten der Mathematik aus der Steinzeit ein. Im Anschluss daran stellt er die zentrale Fragestellung der ?Infinitesimalrechnung? anhand eines einfachen Beispiels dar. Dann erläutert der Autor die Grundproblematik des Differenzierens: die Steigung (d. h. die Richtung der Tangente) an einer... more...

#### Beyond Perturbation

CRC Press 2003; US$ 159.95Solving 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...

#### Elliptic Cohomology

Springer US 2006; US$ 199.00Elliptic cohomology is an extremely beautiful theory with both geometric and arithmetic aspects. The former is explained by the fact that the theory is a quotient of oriented cobordism localised away from 2, the latter by the fact that the coefficients coincide with a ring of modular forms. The aim of the book is to construct this cohomology theory,... more...

#### Shape Optimization And Optimal Design

CRC Press 2001; US$ 297.00This 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...

#### Moving Shape Analysis and Control

CRC Press 2006; US$ 154.95Problems involving the evolution of two- and three-dimensional domains arise in many areas of science and engineering. Emphasizing an Eulerian approach, Moving Shape Analysis and Control: Applications to Fluid Structure Interactions presents valuable tools for the mathematical analysis of evolving domains. The book illustrates the efficiency of... more...

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

CRC Press 2016; US$ 132.95Representation 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...

#### String Topology and Cyclic Homology

Birkhäuser Basel 2006; US$ 39.95This book explores string topology, Hochschild and cyclic homology, assembling material from a wide scattering of scholarly sources in a single practical volume. The text string topology from the elementary bases to the most recent developments, presenting material for a broader audience that was formerly available only to advanced specialists. more...

#### Algebraic Cobordism

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2007; US$ 99.00Following Quillen's approach to complex cobordism, the authors introduce the notion of oriented cohomology theory on the category of smooth varieties over a fixed field. They prove the existence of a universal such theory (in characteristic 0) called Algebraic Cobordism. Surprisingly, this theory satisfies the analogues of Quillen's theorems: the cobordism... more...

#### Basic Bundle Theory and K-Cohomology Invariants

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2007; US$ 109.00Based on several recent courses given to mathematical physics students, this volume is an introduction to bundle theory with the aim to provide newcomers to the field with solid foundations in topological K-theory. A fundamental theme, emphasized in the book, centers around the gluing of local bundle data related to bundles into a global object. ... more...
