  • Moduli of Curvesby Joe Harris; Ian Morrison

    Springer New York 2006; US$ 44.01

    Aims Theaimofthisbookistoprovideaguidetoarichandfascinatings- ject: algebraic curves, and how they vary in families. The revolution that the ?eld of algebraic geometry has undergone with the introd- tion of schemes, together with new ideas, techniques and viewpoints introduced by Mumford and others, have made it possible for us to understandthebehaviorofcurvesinwaysthatsimplywerenotpos-... more...

  • Introduction to Topological Manifoldsby John M. Lee

    Springer New York 2006; US$ 76.20

    This book is an introduction to manifolds at the beginning graduate level. It contains the essential topological ideas that are needed for the further study of manifolds, particularly in the context of di?erential geometry, algebraic topology, and related ?elds. Its guiding philosophy is to develop these ideas rigorously but economically, with minimal... more...

  • A Geometrical Picture Bookby Burkard Polster

    Springer New York 2012; US$ 88.10

    How do you convey to your students, colleagues and friends some of the beauty of the kind of mathematics you are obsessed with? If you are a mathematician interested in finite or topological geometry and combinatorial designs, you could start by showing them some of the (400+) pictures in the "picture book". Pictures are what this book is all about;... more...

  • Geometryby Michele Audin

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 34.22

    Geometry, this very ancient field of study of mathematics, frequently remains too little familiar to students. Michèle Audin, professor at the University of Strasbourg, has written a book allowing them to remedy this situation and, starting from linear algebra, extend their knowledge of affine, Euclidean and projective geometry, conic sections and... more...

  • Cell Transformationby J. Celis; A. Graessmann

    Springer US 2013; US$ 83.82

    This volume is based on the proceedings of a NATOjFEBSjGulbenkian Foundation sponsored Summer School held in September 1984 in Sintra­ Estoril, Portugal. Given the accelerated growth of knowledge in the field of cell transformation, it seemed timely to hold a summer school to discuss current developments in this area of biology as well as to evaluate... more...

  • Reconstructive Integral Geometryby Victor Palamodov

    Birkhäuser Basel 2012; US$ 65.31

    One hundred years ago (1904) Hermann Minkowski [58] posed a problem: to re­ 2 construct an even function I on the sphere 8 from knowledge of the integrals MI (C) = fc Ids over big circles C. Paul Funk found an explicit reconstruction formula for I from data of big circle integrals. Johann Radon studied a similar problem for the Eu­ clidean plane and... more...

  • Global Riemannian Geometry: Curvature and Topologyby Steen Markvorsen; Maung Min-Oo

    Birkhäuser Basel 2012; US$ 24.38

    This book contains a clear exposition of two contemporary topics in modern differential geometry: distance geometric analysis on manifolds, in particular, comparison theory for distance functions in spaces which have well defined bounds on their curvature the application of the Lichnerowicz formula for Dirac operators to the study of Gromov's... more...

  • Projektive Geometrieby Albrecht Beutelspacher; Ute Rosenbaum

    Vieweg+Teubner Verlag 2013; US$ 21.03

    Dieses Lehrbuch präsentiert projektive Geometrie, ein wichtiges klassisches Gebiet der Mathematik, im neuen Gewand: So liegt ein Akzent auf überraschenden und wichtigen Anwendungen. Die 2. Auflage beinhaltet WOM-Codes, Perspektive, Bewegliche Fachwerke und Polarräume als zusätzliche Themen. more...

  • Theory of Stein Spacesby Hans Grauert; A. Huckleberry; Reinhold Remmert

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 46.80

    From the reviews: " Theory of Stein Spaces provides a rich variety of methods, results, and motivations - a book with masterful mathematical care and judgement. It is a pleasure to have this fundamental material now readily accessible to any serious mathematician." J. Eells in Bulletin of the London Mathematical Society (1980) "Written by two mathematicians... more...

  • Recent Synthetic Differential Geometryby Herbert Busemann

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 87.09

    A synthetic approach to intrinsic differential geometry in the large and its connections with the foundations of geometry was presented in "The Geometry of Geodesics" (1955, quoted as G). It is the purpose of the present report to bring this theory up to date. Many of the later ip.vestigations were stimulated by problems posed in G, others concern... more...
