#### 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...

#### 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...

#### Rational Homotopy Theory and Differential Forms

Springer New York 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... 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...

#### Syzygies and Homotopy Theory

Springer London 2011; US$ 109.00This book explores the problem of nonsimply connected homotopy in the first nontrivial cases and presents a systematic rehabilitation of Hilbert's method of syzygies in the context of non-simply connected homotopy theory. more...

#### Higher Structures in Geometry and Physics

Birkhäuser Boston 2010; US$ 179.00Centered 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...

#### Homotopy Theory of C*-Algebras

Springer Basel 2010; US$ 59.95Homotopy theory and C* algebras are central to contemporary mathematics. This book introduces a modern homotopy theory for C*-algebras that uses the concept of merging C*-algebras and spaces studied in algebraic topology into one category comprising C*-spaces. more...

#### Simplicial Homotopy Theory

Birkhäuser Basel 2009; US$ 69.99This 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...

#### Shape and Shape Theory

Wiley 2009; US$ 292.00"This is a fascinating book mixing geometry, topology and probability theory..." ( London Mathematical Society Bulletin , Vol 32, 2000) "The potential value that his volume should have to researchers in many areas for years to come." ( Short Book Reviews , August 2000) "I would like to conclude this review by strongly recommending that geodists... more...
