Geometry

Most popular at the top

  • Join Geometriesby W. Prenowitz; J. Jantosciak

    Springer New York 2012; US$ 78.33

    The main object of this book is to reorient and revitalize classical geometry in a way that will bring it closer to the mainstream of contemporary mathematics. The postulational basis of the subject will be radically revised in order to construct a broad-scale and conceptually unified treatment. The familiar figures of classical geometry-points, segments,... more...

  • DIOCLES, On Burning Mirrorsby G. J. Toomer; G. J. Toomer; G. J. Toomer

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 123.10

    This publication would not have been what it is without the help of many institutions and people, which I acknowledge most gratefully. I thank the Central Library and Documentation Center, Iran, and its director, Mr. Iraji Afshar, for permission to publish photo­ graphs of that part of ms. 392 of the Shrine Library, Meshhed, containing Diocles' treatise.... more...

  • Shadows of the Circleby V.L. Hansen

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1998; US$ 17.00 US$ 15.47

    The aim of this book is to throw light on various facets of geometry through development of four geometrical themes.The first theme is about the ellipse, the shape of the shadow cast by a circle. The next, a natural continuation of the first, is a study of all three types of conic sections, the ellipse, the parabola and the hyperbola.The third theme... more...

  • Abstract Homotopy and Simple Homotopy Theoryby K.H. Kamps; T. Porter

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1997; US$ 102.00 US$ 92.82

    The abstract homotopy theory is based on the observation that analogues of much of the topological homotopy theory and simple homotopy theory exist in many other categories (e.g. spaces over a fixed base, groupoids, chain complexes, module categories). Studying categorical versions of homotopy structure, such as cylinders and path space constructions,... more...

  • Geometryby Michele Audin

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 35.18

    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$ 86.17

    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...

  • Recent Synthetic Differential Geometryby Herbert Busemann

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 89.52

    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...

  • Etale Cohomology and the Weil Conjectureby Eberhard Freitag; J.A. Dieudonne; Betty S. Waterhouse; William C. Waterhouse; Reinhardt Kiehl

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2013; US$ 78.33

    Some years ago a conference on l-adic cohomology in Oberwolfach was held with the aim of reaching an understanding of Deligne's proof of the Weil conjec­ tures. For the convenience of the speakers the present authors - who were also the organisers of that meeting - prepared short notes containing the central definitions and ideas of the proofs. The... more...

  • Algebraby Siegfried Bosch

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2013; US$ 37.62

    Eine verständliche, konzise und immer flüssige Einführung in die Algebra, die insbesondere durch ihre sorgfältige didaktische Aufbereitung bei vielen Studenten Freunde finden wird. Die vorliegende überarbeitete Auflage bietet neben zahlreichen Aufgaben (mit Lösungshinweisen) sowie einführenden und motivierenden Vorbemerkungen auch Ausblicke auf neuere... more...

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

    Birkhäuser Basel 2012; US$ 25.06

    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...
