#### 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$ 89.99This 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...

#### Elementary Topology

Elsevier Science 2014; US$ 72.95Elementary Topology: A Combinatorial and Algebraic Approach focuses on the application of algebraic methods to topological concepts and theorems. The publication first elaborates on some examples of surfaces and their classifications. Discussions focus on combinatorial invariants of a surface, combinatorial equivalence, surfaces and their equations,... more...

#### Homotopy Theory

Elsevier Science 2014; US$ 72.95Homotopy Theory contains all the published mathematical work of J. H. C. Whitehead, written between 1947 and 1955. This volume considers the study of simple homotopy types, particularly the realization of problem for homotopy types. It describes Whitehead's version of homotopy theory in terms of CW-complexes. This book is composed of 21 chapters and... 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...

#### Configuration Spaces

Scuola Normale Superiore 2013; US$ 34.95These proceedings contain the contributions of some of the participants in the "intensive research period" held at the De Giorgi Research Center in Pisa, during the period May-June 2010. The central theme of this research period was the study of configuration spaces from various points of view. This topic originated from the intersection of several... 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$ 92.95ROBERT W. VALLIN, PhD, is Professor of Mathematics at Slippery Rock University. The recipient of numerous grants and awards, Dr. Vallin is also the author of over forty journal articles and has given many undergraduate and research talks on a variety of topics. more...
