#### Geometric Phases in Physics

World Scientific Publishing Company 1989; US$ 38.00 US$ 34.58During the last few years, considerable interest has been focused on the phase that waves accumulate when the equations governing the waves vary slowly. The recent flurry of activity was set off by a paper by Michael Berry, where it was found that the adiabatic evolution of energy eigenfunctions in quantum mechanics contains a phase of geometric origin... more...

#### Applications of Contact Geometry and Topology in Physics

World Scientific Publishing Company 2013; US$ 54.00 US$ 49.14Although contact geometry and topology is briefly discussed in V I Arnol'd's book "Mathematical Methods of Classical Mechanics "(Springer-Verlag, 1989, 2nd edition), it still remains a domain of research in pure mathematics, e.g. see the recent monograph by H Geiges "An Introduction to Contact Topology" (Cambridge U Press,... more...

#### Physics, Geometry and Topology

Springer US 2012; US$ 122.69Proceedings of a NATO ASI and Banff Summer School in Theoretical Physics held in Banff, Alberta, Canada, August 14-25, 1989 more...

#### An Invitation to Noncommutative Geometry

World Scientific Publishing Company 2008; US$ 83.00 US$ 75.53This is the first existing volume that collects lectures on this important and fast developing subject in mathematics. The lectures are given by leading experts in the field and the range of topics is kept as broad as possible by including both the algebraic and the differential aspects of noncommutative geometry as well as recent applications to theoretical... more...

#### Geometric Methods in Physics

Springer Basel 2012; US$ 122.69The Białowieża workshops on Geometric Methods in Physics are among the most important meetings in the field. Every year some 80 to 100 participants from both mathematics and physics join to discuss new developments and to interchange ideas. This volume contains contributions by selected speakers at the XXX meeting in 2011 as well as additional review... more...

#### Dynamical Systems and Microphysics

Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 72.95Dynamical Systems and Microphysics: Geometry and Mechanics contains the proceedings of the Second International Seminar on Mathematical Theory of Dynamical Systems and Microphysics held at the International Center for Mechanical Sciences in Udine, Italy on September 1-11, 1981. Contributors explore the geometry and mechanics of dynamical systems and... more...

#### Algebraic Foundations of Non-Commutative Differential Geometry and Quantum Groups

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2009; US$ 85.88Quantum groups and quantum algebras as well as non-commutative differential geometry are important in mathematics and considered to be useful tools for model building in statistical and quantum physics. This book, addressing scientists and postgraduates, contains a detailed and rather complete presentation of the algebraic framework. Introductory chapters... more...

#### Fractals in Physics

Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 72.95The concepts of self-similarity and scale invariance have arisen independently in several areas. One is the study of the critical properties of phase transitions; another is fractal geometry, which involves the concept of (non-integer) fractal dimension. These two areas have now come together, and their methods have extended to various fields of... more...
