#### A Fête of Topology

Elsevier Science 2014; US$ 93.95A Fête of Topology: Papers Dedicated to Itiro Tamura focuses on the progress in the processes, methodologies, and approaches involved in topology, including foliations, cohomology, and surface bundles. The publication first takes a look at leaf closures in Riemannian foliations and differentiable singular cohomology for foliations. Discussions focus... more...

#### Exotic Smoothness And Physics

World Scientific Publishing Company 2007; US$ 112.00The recent revolution in differential topology related to the discovery of non-standard (“exotic”) smoothness structures on topologically trivial manifolds such as R4 suggests many exciting opportunities for applications of potentially deep importance for the spacetime models of theoretical physics, especially general relativity. This rich... more...

#### An Introduction to Involutive Structures

Cambridge University Press 2008; US$ 124.00The main tools of involutive systems of complex vector fields together with the major results from last twenty five years. 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...

#### Differential Topology

Elsevier Science 1992; US$ 72.95...there are reasons enough to warrant a coherent treatment of the main body of differential topology in the realm of Banach manifolds, which is at the same time correct and complete. This book fills the gap: whenever possible the manifolds treated are Banach manifolds with corners. Corners add to the complications and the authors have carefully fathomed... more...

#### Foliations and the Geometry of 3-Manifolds

Clarendon Press 2007; US$ 149.99This unique reference, aimed at research topologists, gives an exposition of the 'pseudo-Anosov' theory of foliations of 3-manifolds. This theory generalizes Thurston's theory of surface automorphisms and reveals an intimate connection between dynamics, geometry and topology in 3 dimensions. more...

#### Metric Foliations and Curvature

Birkhäuser Basel 2009; US$ 89.99Riemannian manifolds, particularly those with positive or nonnegative curvature, are constructed from only a handful by means of metric fibrations or deformations thereof. This text documents some of these constructions, many of which have only appeared in journal form. more...

#### Topics in Extrinsic Geometry of Codimension-One Foliations

Springer New York 2011; US$ 49.95Extrinsic geometry describes those properties of foliations on Riemannian manifolds which can be expressed in terms of the second fundamental form of the leaves. The central topic of this book is Extrinsic Geometric Flow (EGF) on foliated manifolds. more...

#### Topological Library - Part 1

World Scientific Publishing Company 2007; US$ 157.00This is the first of three volumes collecting the original and now classic works in topology written in the 50s-60s. The original methods and constructions from these works are properly documented for the first time in this book. No existing book covers the beautiful ensemble of methods created in topology starting from approximately 1950, that is,... more...
