#### Advances in the Homotopy Analysis Method

World Scientific Publishing Company 2013; US$ 163.00Unlike other analytic techniques, the Homotopy Analysis Method (HAM) is independent of small/large physical parameters. Besides, it provides great freedom to choose equation type and solution expression of related linear high-order approximation equations. The HAM provides a simple way to guarantee the convergence of solution series. Such uniqueness... more...

#### Functorial Knot Theory

World Scientific Publishing Company 2001; US$ 142.00Almost since the advent of skein-theoretic invariants of knots and links (the Jones, HOMFLY, and Kauffman polynomials), the important role of categories of tangles in the connection between low-dimensional topology and quantum-group theory has been recognized. The rich categorical structures naturally arising from the considerations of cobordisms have... more...

#### Energy of Knots and Conformal Geometry

World Scientific Publishing Company 2003; US$ 135.00Energy of knots is a theory that was introduced to create a “canonical configuration” of a knot — a beautiful knot which represents its knot type. This book introduces several kinds of energies, and studies the problem of whether or not there is a “canonical configuration” of a knot in each knot type. It also considers... more...

#### Fixed Point Theory in Distance Spaces

Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 89.99This is a monograph on fixed point theory, covering the purely metric aspects of the theory?particularly results that do not depend on any algebraic structure of the underlying space. Traditionally, a large body of metric fixed point theory has been couched in a functional analytic framework. This aspect of the theory has been written about extensively.... more...

#### Configuration Spaces

Scuola Normale Superiore 2013; US$ 34.95These proceedings contain the contributions of some of the participants in the "intensive research period" held at the De Giorgi Research Center in Pisa, during the period May-June 2010. The central theme of this research period was the study of configuration spaces from various points of view. This topic originated from the intersection of several... 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...
