#### Central Simple Algebras and Galois Cohomology

Cambridge University Press 2006; US$ 88.00The first modern, comprehensive introduction to central simple algebras for graduate students and researchers. more...

#### Cohomology of Finite Groups

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2013; US$ 129.00Some Historical Background This book deals with the cohomology of groups, particularly finite ones. Historically, the subject has been one of significant interaction between algebra and topology and has directly led to the creation of such important areas of mathematics as homo logical algebra and algebraic K-theory. It arose primarily in the 1920's... more...

#### Combinatorial Homotopy and 4-Dimensional Complexes

De Gruyter 1991; US$ 210.00Combinatorial Homotopy and 4-Dimensional Complexes (Architektur Auf Naxos Und Paros) 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...

#### 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...

#### 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.... more...

#### AN EXCURSION IN DIAGRAMMATIC ALGEBRA

World Scientific Publishing Company 2011; US$ 87.00The aim of this book is to give as detailed a description as is possible of one of the most beautiful and complicated examples in low-dimensional topology. This example is a gateway to a new idea of higher dimensional algebra in which diagrams replace algebraic expressions and relationships between diagrams represent algebraic relations. The reader... more...

#### The Elements of Cantor Sets

Wiley 2013; US$ 92.95A systematic and integrated approach to Cantor Sets and their applications to various branches of mathematics The Elements of Cantor Sets: With Applications features a thorough introduction to Cantor Sets and applies these sets as a bridge between real analysis, probability, topology, and algebra. The author fills a gap in the current literature... more...

#### Energy of Knots and Conformal Geometry

World Scientific Publishing Company 2003; US$ 78.00Energy 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...

#### 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...
