#### Foliations and Geometric Structures

Springer Netherlands 2006; US$ 139.00The theory of foliations of manifolds was created in the forties of the last century by Ch. Ehresmann and G. Reeb [ER44]. Since then, the subject has enjoyed a rapid development and thousands of papers investigating foliations have appeared. A list of papers and preprints on foliations up to 1995 can be found in Tondeur [Ton97]. Due to the great interest... 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...

#### Introduction to Foliations and Lie Groupoids

Cambridge University Press 2003; US$ 68.00A quick introduction to foliations and Lie groupoids with numerous examples and exercises to aid the reader. 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...

#### Foliations 2012

World Scientific Publishing Company 2013; US$ 110.00This 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...
