#### Combinatorial Homotopy and 4-Dimensional Complexes

De Gruyter 1991; US$ 173.52The aim of the series is to present new and important developments in pure and applied mathematics. Well established in the community over two decades, it offers a large library of mathematics including several important classics. The volumes supply thorough and detailed expositions of the methods and ideas essential to the topics in question.... more...

#### The Homotopy Category of Simply Connected 4-Manifolds

Cambridge University Press 2003; US$ 76.00Homotopy of 4-manifolds for researchers and graduate students. more...

#### Shape Optimization And Optimal Design

CRC Press 2001; US$ 297.00This volume presents developments and advances in modelling passive and active control systems governed by partial differential equations. It emphasizes shape analysis, optimal shape design, controllability, nonlinear boundary control, and stabilization. The authors include essential data on exact boundary controllability of thermoelastic plates with... more...

#### Higher Structures in Geometry and Physics

Birkhäuser Boston 2010; US$ 146.31Centered on the higher algebraic structures in the work of Murray Gerstenhaber and Jim Stasheff, now ubiquitous in various areas of mathematics and theoretical physics, this volume shows how their work has been expanded into new realms of research. more...

#### String Topology and Cyclic Homology

Birkhäuser Basel 2006; US$ 24.94This book explores string topology, Hochschild and cyclic homology, assembling material from a wide scattering of scholarly sources in a single practical volume. The text string topology from the elementary bases to the most recent developments, presenting material for a broader audience that was formerly available only to advanced specialists. more...

#### ZZ/2 - Homotopy Theory

Cambridge University Press 1980; US$ 52.00This account is a study of twofold symmetry in algebraic topology. more...

#### Statistical Models of Shape

Springer London 2008; US$ 141.02Deformable shape models have wide application in computer vision and biomedical image analysis. This book addresses a key issue in shape modelling: establishment of a meaningful correspondence between a set of shapes. Full implementation details are provided. more...

#### Homotopy of Extremal Problems

De Gruyter 2007; US$ 195.22This 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... more...

#### Algebraic Models in Geometry

OUP Oxford 2008; US$ 62.99A text aimed at both geometers needing the tools of rational homotopy theory to understand and discover new results concerning various geometric subjects, and topologists who require greater breadth of knowledge about geometric applications of the algebra of homotopy theory. more...

#### Simplicial Homotopy Theory

Birkhäuser Basel 2009; US$ 57.49This book introduces basic tools of modern homotopy theory. It covers basic topics such as simplicial groups, Postnikov towers, and bisimplicial sets, as well as such advanced topics as homotopy limits and colimits, cosimplicial spaces, and homotopy coherence. more...
