#### Singularity Theory

World Scientific Publishing Company 2007; US$ 127.00 US$ 115.57The Singularity School and Conference took place in Luminy, Marseille, from January 24th to February 25th 2005. More than 180 mathematicians from over 30 countries converged to discuss recent developments in singularity theory. The volume contains the elementary and advanced courses conducted by singularities specialists during the conference, general... more...

#### The Reidemeister Torsion of 3-Manifolds

De Gruyter 2008; US$ 210.00The series is devoted to the publication of monographs and high-level textbooks in mathematics, mathematical methods and their applications. Apart from covering important areas of current interest, a major aim is to make topics of an interdisciplinary nature accessible to the non-specialist. The works in this series are addressed to... more...

#### Infinite Dimensional Groups and Manifolds

De Gruyter 2008; US$ 98.00The volume is a collection of refereed research papers on infinite dimensional groups and manifolds in mathematics and quantum physics. Topics covered are: new classes of Lie groups of mappings, the Burgers equation, the Chern--Weil construction in infinite dimensions, the hamiltonian approach to quantum field theory, and different... more...

#### Real and Complex Singularities

Birkhäuser Basel 2007; US$ 128.61This volume collects papers presented at the eighth São Carlos Workshop on Real and Complex Singularities, held at the IML, Marseille, July 2004. Like the workshop, this collection establishes the state of the art and presents new trends, new ideas and new results in all of the branches of singularities. Real and Complex Singularities offers a useful... more...

#### An Introduction to Contact Topology

Cambridge University Press 2008; US$ 92.00This self-contained text is an introduction to contact topology. Ideal for graduate courses on contact geometry, and as a reference for researchers. more...

#### Monopoles and Three-Manifolds

Cambridge University Press 2007; US$ 74.00A comprehensive treatment of Floer homology, based on the Seiberg–Witten equations, first published in 2007. more...

#### An Introduction to Involutive Structures

Cambridge University Press 2008; US$ 99.00The main tools of involutive systems of complex vector fields together with the major results from last twenty five years. more...

#### Topological Invariants of Stratified Spaces

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2007; US$ 101.72The homology of manifolds enjoys a remarkable symmetry: Poincaré duality. If the manifold is triangulated, then this duality can be established by associating to a s- plex its dual block in the barycentric subdivision. In a manifold, the dual block is a cell, so the chain complex based on the dual blocks computes the homology of the manifold. Poincaré... more...

#### Differential Topology

Elsevier Science 1992; US$ 72.95...there are reasons enough to warrant a coherent treatment of the main body of differential topology in the realm of Banach manifolds, which is at the same time correct and complete. This book fills the gap: whenever possible the manifolds treated are Banach manifolds with corners. Corners add to the complications and the authors have carefully fathomed... more...

#### Foliations and the Geometry of 3-Manifolds

Clarendon Press 2007; US$ 149.99This unique reference, aimed at research topologists, gives an exposition of the 'pseudo-Anosov' theory of foliations of 3-manifolds. This theory generalizes Thurston's theory of surface automorphisms and reveals an intimate connection between dynamics, geometry and topology in 3 dimensions. more...
