This book is devoted to the structure of the Mandelbrot set — a remarkable and important feature of modern theoretical physics, related to chaos and fractals and simultaneously to analytical functions, Riemann surfaces, phase transitions and string theory. The Mandelbrot set is one of the bridges connecting the world of chaos and order. The... more...

This text contains a basic introduction to the abstract measure theory and the Lebesgue integral. Most of the standard topics in the measure and integration theory are discussed. In addition, topics on the Hewitt-Yosida decomposition, the Nikodym and Vitali-Hahn-Saks theorems and material on finitely additive set functions not contained in standard... more...

The theory and applications of C ∗ -algebras are related to fields ranging from operator theory, group representations and quantum mechanics, to non-commutative geometry and dynamical systems. By Gelfand transformation, the theory of C ∗ -algebras is also regarded as non-commutative topology. About a decade ago, George A. Elliott initiated... more...

This book deals with the new class of one-dimensional variational problems — the problems with branching solutions. Instead of extreme curves (mappings of a segment to a manifold) we investigate extreme networks, which are mappings of graphs (one-dimensional cell complexes) to a manifold. Various applications of the approach are presented, such... more...

This volume is about the life and work of Shiing-Shen Chern (1911–), one of the leading mathematicians of this century. The book contains personal accounts by some friends, together with a summary of the mathematical works by Chern himself. Besides a selection of the mathematical papers the book also contains all his papers published after 1988. more...

A real matrix is positive semidefinite if it can be decomposed as A = BB′ . In some applications the matrix B has to be elementwise nonnegative. If such a matrix exists, A is called completely positive. The smallest number of columns of a nonnegative matrix B such that A = BB′ is known as the cp- rank of A . This invaluable book focuses... more...

A central problem in differential geometry is to relate algebraic properties of the Riemann curvature tensor to the underlying geometry of the manifold. The full curvature tensor is in general quite difficult to deal with. This book presents results about the geometric consequences that follow if various natural operators defined in terms of the Riemann... more...

This introductory book uses the moving frame as a tool and develops Finsler geometry on the basis of the Chern connection and the projective sphere bundle. It systematically introduces three classes of geometrical invariants on Finsler manifolds and their intrinsic relations, analyzes local and global results from classic and modern Finsler geometry,... more...

In 1854, B Riemann introduced the notion of curvature for spaces with a family of inner products. There was no significant progress in the general case until 1918, when P Finsler studied the variation problem in regular metric spaces. Around 1926, L Berwald extended Riemann's notion of curvature to regular metric spaces and introduced an important... more...
