#### Homotopy of Extremal Problems

De Gruyter 2007; US$ 238.00This monograph provides a thorough treatment of parameter-dependent extremal problems with local minimum values that remain unchanged under changes of the parameter. The authors consider the theory as well the practical treatment of those problems, both in finite-dimensional as well as in infinite-dimensional spaces. Various applications are considered,... more...

#### Statistics and Analysis of Shapes

Springer 2007; US$ 109.00The subject of pattern analysis and recognition pervades many aspects of our daily lives, including user authentication in banking, object retrieval from databases in the consumer sector, and the omnipresent surveillance and security measures around sensitive areas. Shape analysis, a fundamental building block in many approaches to these applications,... more...

#### Rational Homotopy Theory and Differential Forms

Springer 2013; US$ 109.00This completely revised and corrected version of the well-known Florence notes circulated by the authors together with E. Friedlander examines basic topology, emphasizing homotopy theory. Included is a discussion of Postnikov towers and rational homotopy theory. This is then followed by an in-depth look at differential forms and de Tham?s theorem on... more...

#### Fixed Point Theory in Distance Spaces

Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 89.99This is a monograph on fixed point theory, covering the purely metric aspects of the theory?particularly results that do not depend on any algebraic structure of the underlying space. Traditionally, a large body of metric fixed point theory has been couched in a functional analytic framework. This aspect of the theory has been written about extensively.... more...

Carne King's College, University of Cambridge, UK H. Le University of Nottingham, UK The statistical theory of shape is a relatively new topic and is generating a great deal of interest and comment by statisticians,... more...

#### Hyperbolic Problems: Theory, Numerics and Applications (Volume 2)

World Scientific Publishing Company 2012; US$ 244.00This two-volume book is devoted to mathematical theory, numerics and applications of hyperbolic problems. Hyperbolic problems have not only a long history but also extremely rich physical background. The development is highly stimulated by their applications to Physics, Biology, and Engineering Sciences; in particular, by the design of effective numerical... more...

#### Advances in the Homotopy Analysis Method

World Scientific Publishing Company 2013; US$ 163.00Unlike other analytic techniques, the Homotopy Analysis Method (HAM) is independent of small/large physical parameters. Besides, it provides great freedom to choose equation type and solution expression of related linear high-order approximation equations. The HAM provides a simple way to guarantee the convergence of solution series. Such uniqueness... more...

#### Statistical Models of Shape

Springer London 2008; US$ 149.00Addresses one of the key issues in shape modelling: that of establishing a meaningful correspondence between a set of shapes Uses a novel approach to establishing correspondence by casting model-building as an optimisation problem Includes practical examples of applications for both 2D and 3D sets of shapes Full implementation details, perviously... more...
