#### 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$ 109.00Describes 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...

Wiley 2009; US$ 283.00Shape and Shape Theory D. G. Kendall Churchill College, University of Cambridge, UK D. Barden Girton College, University of Cambridge, UK T. K. Carne King's College, University of Cambridge, UK H. Le University of Nottingham, UK The statistical theory of shape is a relatively new topic and is generating a great deal of interest and comment by statisticians,... more...

#### Algebraic Topology

Springer 2009; US$ 179.00Covers 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...

#### The Geometry of Moduli Spaces of Sheaves

Cambridge University Press 2010; US$ 45.00This highly regarded book is finally back in print and now updated to reflect recent advances in the field. more...

#### A History of Algebraic and Differential Topology, 1900 - 1960

Springer 2009; US$ 89.99Since the early part of the 20th century, topology has gradually spread to many other branches of mathematics, and this book demonstrates how the subject continues to play a central role in the field. Written by a world-renowned mathematician, this classic text traces the history of algebraic topology beginning with its creation in the early 1900s... more...

#### Higher Structures in Geometry and Physics

Springer 2010; US$ 149.00This book is centered around higher algebraic structures stemming from the work of Murray Gerstenhaber and Jim Stasheff that are now ubiquitous in various areas of mathematics-- such as algebra, algebraic topology, differential geometry, algebraic geometry, mathematical physics-- and in theoretical physics such as quantum field theory and string theory.... more...

#### Homotopy Theory of C*-Algebras

Springer 2010; US$ 59.95Homotopy theory and C* algebras are central topics in contemporary mathematics. This book introduces a modern homotopy theory for C*-algebras. One basic idea of the setup is to merge C*-algebras and spaces studied in algebraic topology into one category comprising C*-spaces. These objects are suitable fodder for standard homotopy theoretic moves, leading... more...
