#### Braid Groups

Springer New York 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...

#### The Mathematical Theory of Knots and Braids

Elsevier Science 2000; US$ 255.00This book is an introduction to the theory of knots via the theory of braids, which attempts to be complete in a number of ways. Some knowledge of Topology is assumed. Necessary Group Theory and further necessary Topology are given in the book. The exposition is intended to enable an interested reader to learn the basics of the subject. Emphasis is... 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...

#### Algebraic Models in Geometry

Oxford University Press, UK 2008; US$ 62.99A 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$ 97.99This 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

Birkhäuser Basel 2009; US$ 129.00This book describes key techniques of stable homotopy theory, classical and new, and applies them to the unsolved problem of the existence of framed manifolds with odd Arf-Kervaire invariant. It introduces a new technique called "upper triangular technology." more...

#### Shape and Shape Theory

Wiley 2009; US$ 292.00"This is a fascinating book mixing geometry, topology and probability theory..." ( London Mathematical Society Bulletin , Vol 32, 2000) "The potential value that his volume should have to researchers in many areas for years to come." ( Short Book Reviews , August 2000) "I would like to conclude this review by strongly recommending that geodists... more...

#### The Geometry of Moduli Spaces of Sheaves

Cambridge University Press 2010; US$ 60.00This highly regarded book is back in print and now updated to reflect recent advances in the field. more...

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

Birkhäuser Boston 2009; US$ 89.99Written by a world-renowned mathematician, this well informed and classic text traces the history of algebraic topology, beginning with its creation in the early 1900s. It goes on to describe in detail the important theories that were discovered before 1960. more...
