#### Surveys on Surgery Theory (AM-145), Volume 1

Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 110.00Surgery theory, the basis for the classification theory of manifolds, is now about forty years old. There have been some extraordinary accomplishments in that time, which have led to enormously varied interactions with algebra, analysis, and geometry. Workers in many of these areas have often lamented the lack of a single source that surveys surgery... more...

#### Surveys on Surgery Theory (AM-149), Volume 2

Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 110.00Surgery theory, the basis for the classification theory of manifolds, is now about forty years old. The sixtieth birthday (on December 14, 1996) of C.T.C. Wall, a leading member of the subject's founding generation, led the editors of this volume to reflect on the extraordinary accomplishments of surgery theory as well as its current enormously varied... more...

#### An Introduction to Contact Topology

Cambridge University Press 2008; US$ 88.00This self-contained text is an introduction to contact topology. Ideal for graduate courses on contact geometry, and as a reference for researchers. more...

#### Global Surgery Formula for the Casson-Walker Invariant. (AM-140)

Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 72.00This book presents a new result in 3-dimensional topology. It is well known that any closed oriented 3-manifold can be obtained by surgery on a framed link in S 3 . In Global Surgery Formula for the Casson-Walker Invariant, a function F of framed links in S 3 is described, and it is proven that F consistently defines an invariant, lamda ( l... more...

#### Surgery on Contact 3-Manifolds and Stein Surfaces

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2013; US$ 179.00The groundbreaking results of the near past - Donaldson's result on Lef schetz pencils on symplectic manifolds and Giroux's correspondence be tween contact structures and open book decompositions - brought a top ological flavor to global symplectic and contact geometry. This topological aspect is strengthened by the existing results of Weinstein... more...

#### Fine Structures of Hyperbolic Diffeomorphisms

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2008; US$ 149.00The study of hyperbolic systems is one of the core themes of modern dynamical systems. This book plays an important role in filling a gap in the present literature on hyperbolic dynamics and is highly recommended for all PhD students interested in this field. more...
