#### The Heart of Cohomology

Springer 2006; US$ 135.00Explains fundamental notions in cohomology for examples, functors, representable functors, Yoneda embedding, drived functors, spectral sequences, derived categories. This work gives applications to sheaf cohomology. It also provides cohomological aspects of D-modules and of the computation of zeta functions of the Weierstrass family. 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...

#### Rigid Cohomology

Cambridge University Press 2007; US$ 110.00The 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...

#### Statistical Models of Shape

Springer 2008; US$ 149.00Deformable shape models have wide application in computer vision and biomedical image analysis. This book addresses a key issue in shape modelling: establishment of a meaningful correspondence between a set of shapes. Correspondence has traditionally been established by manual annotation of the data, however this is a time-consuming and error-prone... more...

#### Algebraic Models in Geometry

Oxford University Press, UK 2008; US$ 55.00A text aimed at both geometers needing the tools of rational homotopy theory to understand and discover new results concerning various geometric subjects, and topologists who require greater breadth of knowledge about geometric applications of the algebra of homotopy theory. - ;Rational homotopy is a very powerful tool for differential topology and... more...

#### From Quantum Cohomology to Integrable Systems

Oxford University Press, UK 2008; US$ 94.99This text focuses on the extraordinary success of quantum cohomology and its connections with many existing areas of traditional mathematics and new areas such as mirror symmetry. Aimed at graduate students in mathematics as well as theoretical physicists, the text assumes basic familiarity with differential equations and cohomology. - ;Quantum cohomology... more...

#### Stable Homotopy Around the Arf-Kervaire Invariant

Springer 2009; US$ 129.00Describes important techniques of stable homotopy theory, applying them to the long-standing problem of the existence of framed manifolds with odd Arf-Kervaire invariant. This work opens with an account of the necessary algebraic topology background. more...

#### Algebraic Topology

Springer 2009; US$ 189.00Covers the 2007 Abel Symposium that took place at the University of Oslo in August 2007. This book presents various perspectives and constructions that have enabled broadening of vistas, a synergy between once-differentiated subjects, and solutions to mathematical problems. more...
