#### Braid Group, Knot Theory and Statistical Mechanics II

World Scientific Publishing Company 1994; US$ 82.00 US$ 74.62The present volume is an updated version of the book edited by C N Yang and M L Ge on the topics of braid groups and knot theory, which are related to statistical mechanics. This book is based on the 1989 volume but has new material included and new contributors. more...

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

World Scientific Publishing Company 2012; US$ 150.00 US$ 136.50This 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$ 71.89In 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...

#### Selected Works of Wen-Tsun Wu

World Scientific Publishing Company 2008; US$ 144.00 US$ 131.04This important book presents all the major works of Professor Wen-Tsun Wu, a widely respected Chinese mathematician who has made great contributions in the fields of topology and computer mathematics throughout his research career.The book covers Wu's papers from 1948 to 2005 and provides a comprehensive overview of his major achievements in... more...

#### Intersection Cohomology

Birkhäuser Boston 2009; US$ 67.45This book is a publication in Swiss Seminars, a subseries of Progress in Mathematics. It is an expanded version of the notes from a seminar on intersection cohomology theory, which met at the University of Bern, Switzerland, in the spring of 1983. more...

#### Symmetric Bends

World Scientific Publishing Company 1995; US$ 42.00 US$ 38.22A 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...

#### Cohomology of Finite Groups

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2013; US$ 95.16Some Historical Background This book deals with the cohomology of groups, particularly finite ones. Historically, the subject has been one of significant interaction between algebra and topology and has directly led to the creation of such important areas of mathematics as homo logical algebra and algebraic K-theory. It arose primarily in the 1920's... more...

#### Categories for the Working Mathematician

Springer New York 2013; US$ 56.33Categories 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...

#### Hypoelliptic Laplacian and Bott–Chern Cohomology

Springer International Publishing 2013; US$ 83.97This book provides the proof of a complex geometric version of a well-known result in algebraic geometry: the theorem of Riemann–Roch–Grothendieck for proper submersions. It gives an equality of cohomology classes in Bott–Chern cohomology. more...

#### Advances in Homotopy Theory

Cambridge University Press 1989; US$ 52.00This volume records the lectures given at a conference to celebrate Professor Ioan James' 60th birthday. more...
