#### Topology

Wiley 2011; US$ 149.00The 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... more...

#### Grassmannians of Classical Buildings

World Scientific Publishing Company 2010; US$ 64.00Buildings 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$ 50.00Mathematical 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$ 64.00This 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$ 132.00This 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...

#### Inverse Limits

Springer New York 2011; Not AvailableInverse limits provide a powerful tool for constructing complicated spaces from simple ones. This book begins with an introduction to inverse limits on [0,1] before moving to a general treatment of the subject. It examines special topics in continuum theory. more...

#### Frames and Locales

Springer Basel 2011; US$ 74.95With a wealth of unpublished material and useful appendices on the background, this is the first monograph on the topic for more than two decades and is intended to bridge the time span between Johnstone?s 1983 paper Stone Spaces and current theory. more...

#### Algebraic Topology via Differential Geometry

Cambridge University Press 1988; US$ 76.00In this volume the authors seek to illustrate how methods of differential geometry find application in the study of the topology of differential manifolds. Prerequisites are few since the authors take pains to set out the theory of differential forms and the algebra required. The reader is introduced to De Rham cohomology, and explicit and detailed... more...
