#### Topology

Wiley 2011; US$ 144.00The 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$ 103.00Buildings 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...

#### Operators, Geometry and Quanta

Springer 2011; US$ 119.00This book gives a detailed and self-contained introduction into the theory of spectral functions, with an emphasis on their applications to quantum field theory. All methods are illustrated with applications to specific physical problems from the forefront of current research, such as finite-temperature field theory, D-branes, quantum solitons and... more...

#### The Selected Correspondence of L.E.J. Brouwer

Springer 2011; US$ 179.00L.E.J. Brouwer (1881-1966) is best known for his revolutionary ideas on topology and foundations of mathematics (intuitionism). The present collection contains a mixture of letters; university and faculty correspondence has been included, some of which shed light on the student years, and in particular on the exchange of letters with his PhD adviser,... more...

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

Princeton University Press 2011; US$ 57.50This 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$ 215.00This 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...

#### Topological Methods in Data Analysis and Visualization II

Springer 2012; US$ 149.00When scientists analyze datasets in a search for underlying phenomena, patterns or causal factors, their first step is often an automatic or semi-automatic search for structures in the data. Of these feature-extraction methods, topological ones stand out due to their solid mathematical foundation. Topologically defined structures--as found in scalar,... more...

#### Syzygies and Homotopy Theory

Springer 2011; US$ 109.00The most important invariant of a topological space is its fundamental group. When this is trivial, the resulting homotopy theory is well researched and familiar. In the general case, however, homotopy theory over nontrivial fundamental groups is much more problematic and far less well understood. Syzygies and Homotopy Theory explores the problem of... more...
