- Cambridge University Press 1988; US$ 32.00 US$ 26.24
This book, which grew out of Steven Bleiler's lecture notes from a course given by Andrew Casson at the University of Texas, is designed to serve as an introduction to the applications of hyperbolic geometry to low dimensional topology. In particular it provides a concise exposition of the work of Neilsen and Thurston on the automorphisms of surfaces.... more...

Although it arose from purely theoretical considerations of the underlying axioms of geometry, the work of Einstein and Dirac has demonstrated that hyperbolic geometry is a fundamental aspect of modern physics more...

Hyperbolic Manifolds and Discrete Groups is at the crossroads of several branches of mathematics: hyperbolic geometry, discrete groups, 3-dimensional topology, geometric group theory, and complex analysis. The main focus throughout the text is on the "Big Monster," i.e., on Thurston?s hyperbolization theorem, which has not only completely... more...
- Springer New York 2013; US$ 78.61
This book is an introduction to hyperbolic and differential geometry that provides material in the early chapters that can serve as a textbook for a standard upper division course on hyperbolic geometry. For that material, the students need to be familiar with calculus and linear algebra and willing to accept one advanced theorem from analysis without... more...

"From nothing I have created a new different world," wrote János Bolyai to his father, Wolgang Bolyai, on November 3, 1823, to let him know his discovery of non-Euclidean geometry, as we call it today. The results of Bolyai and the co-discoverer, the Russian Lobachevskii, changed the course of mathematics, opened the way for modern physical theories... more...

This book discusses the geometrical aspects of Kaluza-Klein theories. The ten chapters cover topics from the differential and Riemannian manifolds to the reduction of Einstein-Yang-Mills action. It would definitely prove interesting reading to physicists and mathematicians, theoretical and experimental. more...

The concept of the Euclidean simplex is important in the study of n-dimensional Euclidean geometry. This book introduces for the first time the concept of hyperbolic simplex as an important concept in n-dimensional hyperbolic geometry. Following the emergence of his gyroalgebra in 1988, the author crafted gyrolanguage, the algebraic language that... more...
- Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2013; US$ 179.70
This book gives the reader a deep and efficient introduction to an algorithmic approach to hyperbolic geometry. It addresses the issue of universality in an unconventional model of computation, that of cellular automata in hyperbolic spaces. more...
