#### Chaotic Evolution and Strange Attractors

Cambridge University Press 1989; US$ 28.00 US$ 22.96This book, based on lectures given at the Accademia dei Lincei, is an accessible and leisurely account of systems that display a chaotic time evolution. This behaviour, though deterministic, has features more characteristic of stochastic systems. The analysis here is based on a statistical technique known as time series analysis and so avoids complex... more...

#### A First Course in Algebraic Topology

Cambridge University Press 1980; US$ 44.00 US$ 36.08This self-contained introduction to algebraic topology is suitable for a number of topology courses. more...

#### A User's Guide to Spectral Sequences

Cambridge University Press 2000; US$ 56.00 US$ 45.92This book describes some of the most important examples of spectral sequences and some of their most spectacular applications. more...

#### Topology and Its Applications

Wiley 2013; US$ 137.00 US$ 118.73Discover a unique and modern treatment of topology employing a cross-disciplinary approach Implemented recently to understand diverse topics, such as cell biology, superconductors, and robot motion, topology has been transformed from a theoretical field that highlights mathematical theory to a subject that plays a growing role in nearly all fields... more...

#### Topology

Wiley 2011; US$ 149.00 US$ 129.13The essentials of point-set topology, complete with motivation and numerous examples Topology: Point-Set and Geometric presents an introduction to topology that begins with the axiomatic definition of a topology on a set, rather than starting with metric spaces or the topology of subsets of Rn. This approach includes many more examples, allowing students... more...

#### Grassmannians of Classical Buildings

World Scientific Publishing Company 2010; US$ 64.00 US$ 52.48Buildings are combinatorial constructions successfully exploited to study groups of various types. The vertex set of a building can be naturally decomposed into subsets called Grassmannians. The book contains both classical and more recent results on Grassmannians of buildings of classical types. It gives a modern interpretation of some classical results... more...

#### Mathematical Applications and Modelling

World Scientific Publishing Company 2010; US$ 50.00 US$ 41.00Mathematical Applications and Modelling is the second in the series of the yearbooks of the Association of Mathematics Educators in Singapore. The book is unique as it addresses a focused theme on mathematics education. The objective is to illustrate the diversity within the theme and present research that translates into classroom pedagogies.The book,... more...

#### The Ambient Metric (AM-178)

Princeton University Press 2011; US$ 67.50 US$ 54.00This book develops and applies a theory of the ambient metric in conformal geometry. This is a Lorentz metric in n + 2 dimensions that encodes a conformal class of metrics in n dimensions. The ambient metric has an alternate incarnation as the Poincaré metric, a metric in n + 1 dimensions having the conformal manifold as its conformal infinity.... more...

#### More Concise Algebraic Topology

University of Chicago Press 2011; US$ 52.00With firm foundations dating only from the 1950s, algebraic topology is a relatively young area of mathematics. There are very few textbooks that treat fundamental topics beyond a first course, and many topics now essential to the field are not treated in any textbook. J. Peter May?s A Concise Course in Algebraic Topology addresses the standard... more...

#### NONLINEAR DYNAMICAL SYSTEMS OF MATHEMATICAL PHYSICS

World Scientific Publishing Company 2011; US$ 132.00 US$ 108.24This distinctive volume presents a clear, rigorous grounding in modern nonlinear integrable dynamics theory and applications in mathematical physics, and an introduction to timely leading-edge developments in the field — including some innovations by the authors themselves — that have not appeared in any other book. The exposition begins... more...
