#### Dynamics and Control of Trajectory Tubes

Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 129.00This monograph presents theoretical methods involving the Hamilton?Jacobi?Bellman formalism in conjunction with set-valued techniques of nonlinear analysis to solve significant problems in dynamics and control. The emphasis is on issues of reachability, feedback control synthesis under complex state constraints, hard or double bounds on controls, and... 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...

#### Contact and Symplectic Topology

Springer 2014; US$ 129.00Symplectic and contact geometry naturally emerged from themathematical description of classical physics. The discovery of newrigidity phenomena and properties satisfied by these geometricstructures launched a new research field worldwide. The intenseactivity of many European research groups in this field is reflectedby the ESF Research Networking Programme... more...

#### Knots

De Gruyter 2013; US$ 140.00This 3. edition is an introduction to classical knot theory. It contains many figures and some tables of invariants of knots. This comprehensive account is an indispensable reference source for anyone interested in both classical and modern knot theory. Most of the topics considered in the book are developed in detail; only the main properties of fundamental... more...

#### Advances in the Homotopy Analysis Method

World Scientific Publishing Company 2013; US$ 163.00Unlike other analytic techniques, the Homotopy Analysis Method (HAM) is independent of small/large physical parameters. Besides, it provides great freedom to choose equation type and solution expression of related linear high-order approximation equations. The HAM provides a simple way to guarantee the convergence of solution series. Such uniqueness... more...

#### Rational Homotopy Theory and Differential Forms

Springer 2013; US$ 109.00This completely revised and corrected version of the well-known Florence notes circulated by the authors together with E. Friedlander examines basic topology, emphasizing homotopy theory. Included is a discussion of Postnikov towers and rational homotopy theory. This is then followed by an in-depth look at differential forms and de Tham?s theorem on... more...

#### The Elements of Cantor Sets

Wiley 2013; US$ 89.95A systematic and integrated approach to Cantor Sets and theirapplications to various branches of mathematics The Elements of Cantor Sets: With Applications features athorough introduction to Cantor Sets and applies these sets as abridge between real analysis, probability, topology, andalgebra. The author fills a gap in the current literature... more...

#### Hypoelliptic Laplacian and Bott–Chern Cohomology

Springer 2013; US$ 109.00The 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, which is a refinement for complex manifolds of de Rham cohomology. When the manifolds are Kähler, our main... more...

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

World Scientific Publishing Company 2012; US$ 244.00This 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...
