#### Energy of Knots and Conformal Geometry

World Scientific Publishing Company 2003; US$ 135.00Energy of knots is a theory that was introduced to create a “canonical configuration” of a knot — a beautiful knot which represents its knot type. This book introduces several kinds of energies, and studies the problem of whether or not there is a “canonical configuration” of a knot in each knot type. It also considers... more...

#### 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...

#### Fixed Point Theory in Distance Spaces

Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 0.00This is a monograph on fixed point theory, covering the purely metric aspects of the theory?particularly results that do not depend on any algebraic structure of the underlying space. Traditionally, a large body of metric fixed point theory has been couched in a functional analytic framework. This aspect of the theory has been written about extensively.... more...

#### Beyond Perturbation

Taylor and Francis 2003; US$ 154.95Solving nonlinear problems is inherently difficult, and the stronger the nonlinearity, the more intractable solutions become. Analytic approximations often break down as nonlinearity becomes strong, and even perturbation approximations are valid only for problems with weak nonlinearity. This book introduces a powerful new analytic method for nonlinear... more...

#### Shape Optimization And Optimal Design

Taylor and Francis 2001; US$ 283.00This volume presents developments and advances in modelling passive and active control systems governed by partial differential equations. It emphasizes shape analysis, optimal shape design, controllability, nonlinear boundary control, and stabilization. The authors include essential data on exact boundary controllability of thermoelastic plates with... more...

#### Representation Theory and Higher Algebraic K-Theory

Taylor and Francis 2006; US$ 129.95Representation Theory and Higher Algebraic K-Theory is the first book to present higher algebraic K-theory of orders and group rings as well as characterize higher algebraic K-theory as Mackey functors that lead to equivariant higher algebraic K-theory and their relative generalizations. Thus, this book makes computations of higher K-theory of group... more...

#### Higher Topos Theory (AM-170)

Princeton University Press 2009; US$ 78.50Higher category theory is generally regarded as technical and forbidding, but part of it is considerably more tractable: the theory of infinity-categories, higher categories in which all higher morphisms are assumed to be invertible. In Higher Topos Theory , Jacob Lurie presents the foundations of this theory, using the language of weak Kan complexes... more...

#### New Developments in the Theory of Knots

World Scientific Publishing Company 1990; US$ 229.00This reprint volume focuses on recent developments in knot theory arising from mathematical physics, especially solvable lattice models, Yang-Baxter equation, quantum group and two dimensional conformal field theory. This volume is helpful to topologists and mathematical physicists because existing articles are scattered in journals of many different... more...
