#### Handbook of Algebraic Topology

Elsevier Science 1995; US$ 315.00Algebraic topology (also known as homotopy theory) is a flourishing branch of modern mathematics. It is very much an international subject and this is reflected in the background of the 36 leading experts who have contributed to the Handbook. Written for the reader who already has a grounding in the subject, the volume consists of 27 expository surveys... more...

#### Intelligence Of Low Dimensional Topology 2006

World Scientific Publishing Company 2007; US$ 292.00This volume gathers the contributions from the international conference "Intelligence of Low Dimensional Topology 2006," which took place in Hiroshima in 2006. The aim of this volume is to promote research in low dimensional topology with the focus on knot theory and related topics. The papers include comprehensive reviews and some latest... more...

#### The Heart of Cohomology

Springer Netherlands 2006; US$ 135.00Informal and conversational Detailed Elemental and elementary Kind explanation more...

#### Knots

De Gruyter 2002; US$ 147.00This book is an introduction to classical knot theory. Topics covered include: different constructions of knots, knot diagrams, knot groups, fibred knots, characterisation of torus knots, prime decomposition of knots, cyclic coverings and Alexander polynomials and modules together with the free differential calculus, braids, branched... more...

#### Algebraic Cobordism

Springer 2007; US$ 99.00Following Quillen's approach to complex cobordism, this book introduces the notion of oriented cohomology theory on the category of smooth varieties over a fixed field. It also contains some examples of computations and applications. 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...

#### Rigid Cohomology

Cambridge University Press 2007; US$ 116.00The first book to give a complete treatment of rigid cohomology, from the basics to the very latest developments. more...

#### Suites de Sturm, indice de Maslov et périodicité de Bott (Progress in Mathematics) (French Edition)

Springer 2008; US$ 69.95La théorie classique des suites de Sturm fournit un algorithme pour déterminer le nombre de racines d?un polynôme à coefficients réels contenues dans un intervalle donné. L?objet principal de ce mémoire est de montrer qu?une généralisation adéquate de la théorie des suites de Sturm fournit entre autres choses: une notion d?indice de Maslov pour un... more...

#### Braid Groups

Springer 2008; US$ 64.95In this well-written presentation, motivated by numerous examples and problems, the authors introduce the basic theory of braid groups, highlighting several definitions that show their equivalence; this is followed by a treatment of the relationship between braids, knots and links. Important results then treat the linearity and orderability of the... more...

#### Lectures on Homotopy Theory

Elsevier Science 1992; US$ 72.95The central idea of the lecture course which gave birth to this book was to define the homotopy groups of a space and then give all the machinery needed to prove in detail that the n th homotopy group of the sphere S n , for n greater than or equal to 1 is isomorphic to the group of the integers, that the lower homotopy groups of S n are... more...
