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

#### Complex, Contact and Symmetric Manifolds

Springer 2007; US$ 209.00Contains research and survey articles, describing developments and research trends in differential geometry and topology that have been collected and dedicated in honor of Lieven Vanhecke, as a tribute to his many contributions to these fields. more...

#### Grassmannians of Classical Buildings

World Scientific Publishing Company 2010; US$ 103.00Buildings 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$ 76.00This 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...

#### The Novikov Conjecture

Springer 2005; US$ 59.95These lecture notes contain a guided tour to the Novikov Conjecture and related conjectures due to Baum-Connes, Borel and Farrell-Jones. They begin with basics about higher signatures, Whitehead torsion and the s-Cobordism Theorem. Then an introduction to surgery theory and a version of the assembly map is presented. Using the solution of the Novikov... more...
