#### Applications of Affine and Weyl Geometry

Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2013; US$ 45.00Pseudo-Riemannian geometry is, to a large extent, the study of the Levi-Civita connection, which is the unique torsion-free connection compatible with the metric structure. There are, however, other affine connections which arise in different contexts, such as conformal geometry, contact structures, Weyl structures, and almost Hermitian geometry. In... more...

#### A Topological Picturebook

Springer New York 2013; US$ 49.95Praise for George Francis's A Topological Picturebook : Bravo to Springer for reissuing this unique and beautiful book! It not only reminds the older generation of the pleasures of doing mathematics by hand, but also shows the new generation what ``hands on'' really means. - John Stillwell, University of San Francisco The Topological Picturebook... more...

#### An Illustrated Introduction to Topology and Homotopy

CRC Press 2015; US$ 93.95An Illustrated Introduction to Topology and Homotopy explores the beauty of topology and homotopy theory in a direct and engaging manner while illustrating the power of the theory through many, often surprising, applications. This self-contained book takes a visual and rigorous approach that incorporates both extensive illustrations and full proofs.... more...

#### Regularity of Optimal Transport Maps and Applications

Scuola Normale Superiore 2013; US$ 29.99In this thesis, we study the regularity of optimal transport maps and its applications to the semi-geostrophic system. The first two chapters survey the known theory, in particular there is a self-contained proof of Brenier? theorem on existence of optimal transport maps and of Caffarelli?s Theorem on Holder continuity of optimal maps. In the third... more...

#### Topological Dynamical Systems

De Gruyter 2014; US$ 168.00This bookis anelementary introduction to the theory of discrete dynamical systems, alsostressing the topological background of the topic. It treats all important concepts needed to understand recent literature from the 'applied general topology' angle. The book is addressed to graduate students and beyond. more...

#### Explorations in Topology

Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 165.00Explorations in Topology, Second Edition , provides students a rich experience with low-dimensional topology (map coloring, surfaces, and knots), enhances their geometrical and topological intuition, empowers them with new approaches to solving problems, and provides them with experiences that will help them make sense of future, more formal topology... more...

#### Recent Progress in General Topology III

Atlantis Press 2013; US$ 189.00This book presents surveys describing recent developments in most of the primary subfields of general topology and its applications to algebra and analysis. It was prepared in connection with the Prague Topological Symposium, held in 2011. more...

It presents the traditional concepts of topological... more...

#### Dynamics and Symmetry

World Scientific Publishing Company 2007; US$ 144.00This book contains the first systematic exposition of the global and local theory of dynamics equivariant with respect to a (compact) Lie group. Aside from general genericity and normal form theorems on equivariant bifurcation, it describes many general families of examples of equivariant bifurcation and includes a number of novel geometric techniques,... more...

#### Topology in Ordered Phases (With Cd-Rom)

World Scientific Publishing Company 2006; US$ 176.00The concept of topology has become commonplace in various scientific fields. The next stage is to bring together the knowledge accumulated in these fields. This volume contains articles on experiments and theories in connection with topology, including wide-ranging fields such as materials science, superconductivity, charge density waves, superfluidity,... more...
