#### 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$ 112.00 US$ 91.84The 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$ 88.00 US$ 72.16This self-contained text 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$ 124.00 US$ 101.68The main tools of involutive systems of complex vector fields together with the major results from last twenty five years. 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$ 149.99 US$ 128.99This 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...

#### Topological Library - Part 1

World Scientific Publishing Company 2007; US$ 157.00 US$ 128.74This 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...

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

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2013; US$ 123.54The 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...

#### Foliations 2012

World Scientific Publishing Company 2013; US$ 110.00 US$ 90.20This volume is a compilation of new results and surveys on the current state of some aspects of the foliation theory presented during the conference "FOLIATIONS 2012". It contains recent materials on foliation theory which is related to differential geometry, the theory of dynamical systems and differential topology. Both the original research... more...

#### Frontiers in Complex Dynamics

Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 105.00 US$ 84.00John Milnor, best known for his work in differential topology, K-theory, and dynamical systems, is one of only three mathematicians to have won the Fields medal, the Abel prize, and the Wolf prize, and is the only one to have received all three of the Leroy P. Steele prizes. In honor of his eightieth birthday, this book gathers together surveys and... more...
