#### Geometry and Topology of Submanifolds

World Scientific Publishing Company 1994; US$ 78.00The topics covered are pure differential geometry, especially submanifolds and affine differential geometry, and applications of geometry to human vision, robotics, and gastro-entrology. Contents: A Riemannian Invariant for Submanifolds in Space Forms and Its Applications (B Y Chen); Some Variational Problems in Submanifold Theory (F Dillen); Isoparametric... more...

#### Symplectic Geometry

Elsevier Science 2014; US$ 31.95Symplectic Geometry focuses on the processes, methodologies, and numerical approaches involved in symplectic geometry. The book first offers information on the symplectic and discontinuous groups, symplectic metric, and hermitian forms. Numerical calculations are presented to show the values and transformations of these groups. The text then examines... more...

#### Differential and Riemannian Geometry

Elsevier Science 2014; US$ 72.95Differential and Riemannian Geometry focuses on the methodologies, calculations, applications, and approaches involved in differential and Riemannian geometry. The book first offers information on local differential geometry of space curves and surfaces and tensor calculus and Riemannian geometry. Discussions focus on tensor algebra and analysis,... more...

#### Elementary Differential Geometry

Elsevier Science 2014; US$ 72.95Elementary Differential Geometry focuses on the elementary account of the geometry of curves and surfaces. The book first offers information on calculus on Euclidean space and frame fields. Topics include structural equations, connection forms, frame fields, covariant derivatives, Frenet formulas, curves, mappings, tangent vectors, and differential... more...

#### Aspects of Differential Geometry I

Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2015; US$ 40.00Differential Geometry is a wide field. We have chosen to concentrate upon certain aspects that are appropriate for an introduction to the subject; we have not attempted an encyclopedic treatment. In Book I, we focus on preliminaries. Chapter 1 provides an introduction to multivariable calculus and treats the Inverse Function Theorem, Implicit Function... more...

#### Geometry and Analysis on Manifolds

Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 129.00This volume is dedicated to the memory of Shoshichi Kobayashi, and gathers contributions from distinguished researchers working on topics close to his research areas. The book is organized into three parts, with the first part presenting an overview of Professor Shoshichi Kobayashi?s career. This is followed by two expository course lectures (the... more...

#### Submanifolds and Holonomy

CRC Press 2003; US$ 159.95With special emphasis on new techniques based on the holonomy of the normal connection, this book provides a modern, self-contained introduction to submanifold geometry. It offers a thorough survey of these techniques and their applications and presents a framework for various recent results to date found only in scattered research papers. The treatment... more...

#### Elementare Differentialgeometrie

De Gruyter 2010; US$ 49.00This textbook presents an introduction to the differential geometry of curves and surfaces. This second, revised edition has been expanded to include solutions and applications in cartography.

#### Riemannian Geometry and Geometric Analysis

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2006; US$ 59.95Riemannian geometry is characterized, and research is oriented towards and shaped by concepts (geodesics, connections, curvature, ...) and objectives, in particular to understand certain classes of (compact) Riemannian manifolds de?ned by curvature conditions (constant or positive or negative curvature, ...).Bywayofcontrast,geometricanalysisisaperhapssomewhatlesssyst-... more...

#### Harmonic Analysis and Special Functions on Symmetric Spaces

Elsevier Science 1995; US$ 63.95The two parts of this sharply focused book, Hypergeometric and Special Functions and Harmonic Analysis on Semisimple Symmetric Spaces, are derived from lecture notes for the European School of Group Theory, a forum providing high-level courses on recent developments in group theory. The authors provide students and researchers with a thorough and thoughtful... more...
