#### Automorphisms in Birational and Affine Geometry

Springer 2014; US$ 169.00The main focus of this volume is on the problem of describing the automorphism groups of affine and projective varieties, a classical subject in algebraic geometry where, in both cases, the automorphism group is often infinite dimensional. The collection covers a wide range of topics and is intended for researchers in the fields of classical algebraic... more...

#### Rigidity and Symmetry

Springer 2014; US$ 129.00This book contains recent contributions to the fields of rigidity and symmetry with two primary focuses: to present the mathematically rigorous treatment of rigidity of structures and to explore the interaction of geometry, algebra and combinatorics. Contributions present recent trends and advances in discrete geometry, particularly in the theory of... more...

#### Introduction to Modern Dynamics: Chaos, Networks, Space and Time

Oxford University Press 2014; US$ 52.99The best parts of physics are the last topics that our students ever see. These are the exciting new frontiers of nonlinear and complex systems that are at the forefront of university research and are the basis of many high-tech businesses. Topics such as traffic on the World Wide Web, the spread of epidemics through globally-mobile populations, or... more...

#### Analytic Hyperbolic Geometry in N Dimensions

Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 139.95The concept of the Euclidean simplex is important in the study of n-dimensional Euclidean geometry. This book introduces for the first time the concept of hyperbolic simplex as an important concept in n-dimensional hyperbolic geometry. Following the emergence of his gyroalgebra in 1988, the author crafted gyrolanguage, the algebraic language... more...

#### Supermanifolds and Supergroups

Springer 2004; US$ 139.00Supermanifolds and Supergroups explains the basic ingredients of super manifolds and super Lie groups. It starts with super linear algebra and follows with a treatment of super smooth functions and the basic definition of a super manifold. When discussing the tangent bundle, integration of vector fields is treated as well as the machinery of differential... more...

#### Lie Theory

Springer 2006; US$ 149.00Focuses on two fundamental questions in the theory of semisimple Lie groups: the geometry of Riemannian symmetric spaces and their compactifications; and branching laws for unitary representations - restricting unitary representations to subgroups and decomposing the ensuing representations into irreducibles. more...

#### Duality for Nonconvex Approximation and Optimization

Springer 2007; US$ 169.00Researchers have been studying complicated classes of problems that can be studied by means of convex analysis, so-called "anticonvex" and "convex-anticonvex" optimization problems. This monograph contains a presentation of the duality theory for these classes of problems and their generalizations. more...

#### Courbes Algébriques Planes (French Edition)

Springer 2007; US$ 39.95Issu d?un cours de maîtrise de l?Université Paris VII, ce texte est réédité tel qu?il était paru en 1978. A propos du théorème de Bézout sont introduits divers outils nécessaires au développement de la notion de multiplicité d?intersection de deux courbes algébriques dans le plan projectif complexe. Partant des notions élémentaires sur les sous-ensembles... more...

#### Deformations of Algebraic Schemes

Springer 2007; US$ 119.00Presents an account of deformation theory in classical algebraic geometry that brings together some results scattered in the literature. This book includes applications to the construction and properties of Severi varieties of families of plane nodal curves, space curves, deformations of quotient singularities, local Picard functors, and more. more...
