#### Hyperbolic Problems: Theory, Numerics and Applications (Volume 2)

World Scientific Publishing Company 2012; US$ 150.00 US$ 123.00This two-volume book is devoted to mathematical theory, numerics and applications of hyperbolic problems. Hyperbolic problems have not only a long history but also extremely rich physical background. The development is highly stimulated by their applications to Physics, Biology, and Engineering Sciences; in particular, by the design of effective numerical... more...

#### The Geometry of Spherical Space Form Groups

World Scientific Publishing Company 1989; US$ 79.00 US$ 64.78In this volume, the geometry of spherical space form groups is studied using the eta invariant. The author reviews the analytical properties of the eta invariant of Atiyah-Patodi-Singer and describes how the eta invariant gives rise to torsion invariants in both K-theory and equivariant bordism. The eta invariant is used to compute the K-theory of... more...

#### Symmetric Bends

World Scientific Publishing Company 1995; US$ 42.00 US$ 34.44A bend is a knot securely joining together two lengths of cord (or string or rope), thereby yielding a single longer length. There are many possible different bends, and a natural question that has probably occurred to many is: “Is there a ‘best’ bend and, if so, what is it?”Most of the well-known bends happen to be symmetric... more...

#### Categories for the Working Mathematician

Springer New York 2013; US$ 56.51Categories for the Working Mathematician provides an array of general ideas useful in a wide variety of fields. Starting from the foundations, this book illuminates the concepts of category, functor, natural transformation, and duality. The book then turns to adjoint functors, which provide a description of universal constructions, an analysis of the... more...
