#### Orbifolds and Stringy Topology

Cambridge University Press 2007; US$ 80.00 US$ 65.60Introduces the theory of orbifolds from a modern perspective, providing a detailed description of the Chen-Ruan cohomology. more...

#### Grassmannians of Classical Buildings

World Scientific Publishing Company 2010; US$ 64.00Buildings are combinatorial constructions successfully exploited to study groups of various types. The vertex set of a building can be naturally decomposed into subsets called Grassmannians. The book contains both classical and more recent results on Grassmannians of buildings of classical types. It gives a modern interpretation of some classical results... more...

#### Geometry of Low-Dimensional Manifolds: Volume 2

Cambridge University Press 1991; US$ 76.00 US$ 62.32This volume is based on lecture courses and seminars given at the LMS Durham Symposium on the geometry of low-dimensional manifolds. This area has been one of intense research recently, with major breakthroughs that have illuminated the way a number of different subjects interact (for example: topology, differential and algebraic geometry and mathematical... more...

#### Introduction to Smooth Manifolds

Springer New York 2012; US$ 76.20This book is an introductory graduate-level textbook on the theory of smooth manifolds. Its goal is to familiarize students with the tools they will need in order to use manifolds in mathematical or scientific research--- smooth structures, tangent vectors and covectors, vector bundles, immersed and embedded submanifolds, tensors, differential forms,... more...

#### The Topology of Stiefel Manifolds

Cambridge University Press 1977; US$ 68.00 US$ 55.76Stiefel manifolds are an interesting family of spaces much studied by algebraic topologists. more...

#### Elliptic Structures on 3-Manifolds

Cambridge University Press 1986; US$ 52.00 US$ 42.64This volume will give a systematic exposition of known results for free actions by finite groups on S. more...

#### Renormalization and 3-Manifolds Which Fiber over the Circle (AM-142)

Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 87.50 US$ 70.00Many parallels between complex dynamics and hyperbolic geometry have emerged in the past decade. Building on work of Sullivan and Thurston, this book gives a unified treatment of the construction of fixed-points for renormalization and the construction of hyperbolic 3- manifolds fibering over the circle. Both subjects are studied via geometric limits... more...
