#### Combinatorial Homotopy and 4-Dimensional Complexes

De Gruyter 1991; US$ 210.00Combinatorial Homotopy and 4-Dimensional Complexes (Architektur Auf Naxos Und Paros) 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

Taylor and Francis 2001; US$ 283.00This 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

Springer 2010; US$ 179.00This book is centered around higher algebraic structures stemming from the work of Murray Gerstenhaber and Jim Stasheff that are now ubiquitous in various areas of mathematics-- such as algebra, algebraic topology, differential geometry, algebraic geometry, mathematical physics-- and in theoretical physics such as quantum field theory and string theory.... more...

#### String Topology and Cyclic Homology

Springer 2006; US$ 39.95Deals with string topology, Hochschild and cyclic homology. This book consists of an exposition of various approaches to string topology and the Chas-Sullivan loop product. It also gives a construction of an algebraic model for computing topological cyclic homology. It is suitable for both graduate students and established researchers. 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 2008; US$ 149.00Deformable 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. Correspondence has traditionally been established by manual annotation of the data, however this is a time-consuming and error-prone... more...

#### 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...

#### Algebraic Models in Geometry

Oxford University Press, UK 2008; US$ 55.00A 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. - ;Rational homotopy is a very powerful tool for differential topology and... more...

#### Simplicial Homotopy Theory

Springer 2009; US$ 69.99With the development of Quillen's concept of a closed model category and, in particular, a simplicial model category, the simplicial methods have become the primary way to describe non-abelian homological algebra and to address homotopy-theoretical issues in various fields, including algebraic K-theory. This book deals with these ideas. more...
