#### Foliations and Geometric Structures

Springer 2006; US$ 139.00Offers basic material on distributions and foliations. This book introduces and builds the tools needed for studying the geometry of foliated manifolds. Its main theme is to investigate the interrelations between foliations of a manifold on the one hand, and the many geometric structures that the manifold may admit on the other hand. more...

#### Exotic Smoothness And Physics

World Scientific Publishing Company 2007; US$ 182.00The 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 Contact Topology

Cambridge University Press 2008; US$ 85.00This self-contained text, first published in 2008, is an introduction to contact topology. Ideal for graduate courses on contact geometry, and as a reference for researchers. more...

#### An Introduction to Involutive Structures

Cambridge University Press 2008; US$ 115.00The main tools of involutive systems of complex vector fields together with the major results from last twenty five years. more...

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

Oxford University Press, UK 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. - ;This unique reference, aimed at research topologists,... more...

#### Metric Foliations and Curvature

Springer 2008; 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...

#### Symmetry and Spaces

Springer 2010; US$ 169.00This volume is an outgrowth of that event, covering the wide range of mathematics to which Gerry Schwarz has either made fundamental contributions or stimulated others to pursue. more...

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

Springer 2011; US$ 49.95Extrinsic geometry describes properties of foliations on Riemannian manifolds which can be expressed in terms of the second fundamental form of the leaves. The authors of Topics in Extrinsic Geometry of Codimension-One Foliations achieve a technical tour de force, which will lead to important geometric results. The Integral Formulae, introduced in... more...
