#### 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...

#### The Mathematics of Knots

Springer 2010; US$ 179.00The present volume grew out of the Heidelberg Knot Theory Semester, organized by the editors in winter 2008/09 at Heidelberg University. The contributed papers bring the reader up to date on the currently most actively pursued areas of mathematical knot theory and its applications in mathematical physics and cell biology. Both original research and... more...

#### Higher Structures in Geometry and Physics

Springer 2010; US$ 179.00This 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...

#### Graph Coloring Problems

Wiley 2011; US$ 183.00Contains a wealth of information previously scattered in research journals, conference proceedings and technical reports. Identifies more than 200 unsolved problems. Every problem is stated in a self-contained, extremely accessible format, followed by comments on its history, related results and literature. The book will stimulate research and help... more...

#### Etale Cohomology Theory

World Scientific Publishing Company 2011; US$ 211.00Etale cohomology is an important branch in arithmetic geometry. This book covers the main materials in SGA 1, SGA 4, SGA 4 1/2 and SGA 5 on etale cohomology theory, which includes decent theory, etale fundamental groups, Galois cohomology, etale cohomology, derived categories, base change theorems, duality, and l-adic cohomology. The prerequisites... more...

#### INTRODUCTORY LECTURES ON KNOT THEORY

World Scientific Publishing Company 2011; US$ 217.00This volume consists primarily of survey papers that evolved from the lectures given in the school portion of the meeting and selected papers from the conference. Knot theory is a very special topological subject: the classification of embeddings of a circle or collection of circles into three-dimensional space. This is a classical topological problem... more...

#### AN EXCURSION IN DIAGRAMMATIC ALGEBRA

World Scientific Publishing Company 2011; US$ 151.00The 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...

#### Low-Dimensional Topology

Cambridge University Press 1982; US$ 72.00This volume consists of the proceedings of a conference held at the University College of North Wales in July of 1979. more...

#### Stable Modules and the D(2)-Problem

Cambridge University Press 2003; US$ 84.00This 2003 book deals with two fundamental problems in low-dimensional topology with an eye on wider context. more...
