#### Embedding Problems in Symplectic Geometry

De Gruyter 2005; US$ 238.00Symplectic geometry is the geometry underlying Hamiltonian dynamics, and symplectic mappings arise as time-1-maps of Hamiltonian flows. The spectacular rigidity phenomena for symplectic mappings discovered in the last two decades show that certain things cannot be done by a symplectic mapping. For instance, Gromov's famous "non-squeezing''... more...

#### Open Problems in Topology II

#### Orbifolds and Stringy Topology

Cambridge University Press 2007; US$ 80.00 US$ 65.60Introduces the theory of orbifolds from a modern perspective, providing a detailed description of the Chen-Ruan cohomology. more...

#### Lie Theory

Birkhäuser Boston 2006; US$ 169.00Semisimple Lie groups, and their algebraic analogues over fields other than the reals, are of fundamental importance in geometry, analysis, and mathematical physics. Three independent, self-contained volumes, under the general title Lie Theory , feature survey work and original results by well-established researchers in key areas of semisimple Lie... more...

#### Advanced Mathematical And Computational Tools In Metrology Vi

World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 154.00This volume collects refereed contributions based on the presentations made at the Sixth Workshop on Advanced Mathematical and Computational Tools in Metrology, held at the Istituto di Metrologia ?G. Colonnetti? (IMGC), Torino, Italy, in September 2003. It provides a forum for metrologists, mathematicians and software engineers that will encourage... more...

#### Analytic Hyperbolic Geometry

World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 118.00This is the first book on analytic hyperbolic geometry, fully analogous to analytic Euclidean geometry. Analytic hyperbolic geometry regulates relativistic mechanics just as analytic Euclidean geometry regulates classical mechanics. The book presents a novel gyrovector space approach to analytic hyperbolic geometry, fully analogous to the well-known... more...

#### Poisson Structures and Their Normal Forms

Birkhäuser Basel 2006; US$ 139.00Poisson manifolds play a fundamental role in Hamiltonian dynamics, where they serve as phase spaces. They also arise naturally in other mathematical problems, and form a bridge from the "commutative world" to the "noncommutative world". The aim of this book is twofold: On the one hand, it gives a quick, self-contained introduction to Poisson geometry... more...

#### The Geometry Of Hessian Structures

World Scientific Publishing Company 2007; US$ 79.00The geometry of Hessian structures is a fascinating emerging field of research. It is in particular a very close relative of Kählerian geometry, and connected with many important pure mathematical branches such as affine differential geometry, homogeneous spaces and cohomology. The theory also finds deep relation to information geometry in applied... more...
