#### Projective Differential Geometry of Submanifolds

Elsevier Science 1993; US$ 72.95In this book, the general theory of submanifolds in a multidimensional projective space is constructed. The topics dealt with include osculating spaces and fundamental forms of different orders, asymptotic and conjugate lines, submanifolds on the Grassmannians, different aspects of the normalization problems for submanifolds (with special emphasis... more...

#### Appendix

Elsevier Science 1987; US$ 72.95The epoch-making work of János Bolyai is presented here, together with a supplement outlining Hungarian political and science history to help the reader to get acquainted with the miserable fate of János Bolyai and with his intellectual world. A facsimile of a copy of Bolyai's original 1831 Scientia Spatii (also known as the Appendix) is included,... more...

#### Radon Transforms and the Rigidity of the Grassmannians (AM-156)

Princeton University Press 2009; US$ 115.00 US$ 92.00This book provides the first unified examination of the relationship between Radon transforms on symmetric spaces of compact type and the infinitesimal versions of two fundamental rigidity problems in Riemannian geometry. Its primary focus is the spectral rigidity problem: Can the metric of a given Riemannian symmetric space of compact type be characterized... more...

#### The Determinate World

De Gruyter 2009; US$ 106.65This study examines the place of Hermann von Helmholtz?s seminal papers on geometry in his philosophy of science. The arguments of these papers are traced back to his prior work on the theory of magnitudes, as well as to Helmholtz?s early, Kantian position. The author claims that Helmholtz should be understood not as opposing Kant, but as... more...

#### Hyperbolic Manifolds and Discrete Groups

Birkhäuser Boston 2009; US$ 109.00Hyperbolic Manifolds and Discrete Groups is at the crossroads of several branches of mathematics: hyperbolic geometry, discrete groups, 3-dimensional topology, geometric group theory, and complex analysis. The main focus throughout the text is on the "Big Monster," i.e., on Thurston?s hyperbolization theorem, which has not only completely... more...

#### Behaviour Monitoring and Interpretation - BMI

IOS Press 2009; US$ 145.00Focuses on behaviour monitoring and interpretation with regard to two main areas of focus: investigation of motion patterns and ambient assisted living. This book presents contributions on research in both these areas. It includes chapters discussing developments in monitoring and representing behaviours, with a focus on movement-based behaviour. more...

#### Advanced Mathematical and Computational Tools in Metrology and Testing

World Scientific Publishing Company 2009; US$ 158.00 US$ 129.56The main theme of the AMCTM 2008 conference, reinforced by the establishment of IMEKO TC21, was to provide a central opportunity for the metrology and testing community worldwide to engage with applied mathematicians, statisticians and software engineers working in the relevant fields. This review volume consists of reviewed papers prepared on the... more...
