#### 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...

#### Selected Works of Wen-Tsun Wu

World Scientific Publishing Company 2008; US$ 144.00 US$ 118.08This 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$ 67.66This 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$ 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...

#### Cohomology of Finite Groups

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2013; US$ 95.46Some 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$ 56.51Categories 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...

#### Hypoelliptic Laplacian and Bott?Chern Cohomology

Springer International Publishing 2013; US$ 84.23This 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$ 52.00 US$ 42.64This volume records the lectures given at a conference to celebrate Professor Ioan James' 60th birthday. more...

#### The Elements of Cantor Sets

Wiley 2013; US$ 96.00 US$ 83.20A systematic and integrated approach to Cantor Sets and their applications to various branches of mathematics The Elements of Cantor Sets: With Applications features a thorough introduction to Cantor Sets and applies these sets as a bridge between real analysis, probability, topology, and algebra. The author fills a gap in the current literature... more...

#### Spectra and the Steenrod Algebra

Elsevier Science 2011; US$ 148.25I have intended this book to be more than just the sum of its chapters, and the introduction is, in part, an attempt to spell out what the more is. Algebraic topology is the study of topological problems by algebraic means. More precisely, this has come to be framed as the study of topological categories by means of functors to algebraic categories.... more...
