#### Hyperbolic Manifolds and Discrete Groups

Birkhäuser Boston 2009; US$ 87.39This classic text is at the crossroads of many branches of mathematics. Its main focus is on Thurston’s hyperbolization theorem, and it contains numerous open problems and conjectures related to the theorem as well as discussions on related topics. more...

#### The Mathematical Mechanic

Princeton University Press 2009; US$ 15.95 US$ 14.51Everybody knows that mathematics is indispensable to physics--imagine where we'd be today if Einstein and Newton didn't have the math to back up their ideas. But how many people realize that physics can be used to produce many astonishing and strikingly elegant solutions in mathematics? Mark Levi shows how in this delightful book, treating readers... more...

#### Outer Billiards on Kites (AM-171)

Princeton University Press 2009; US$ 72.50 US$ 65.98Outer billiards is a basic dynamical system defined relative to a convex shape in the plane. B. H. Neumann introduced this system in the 1950s, and J. Moser popularized it as a toy model for celestial mechanics. All along, the so-called Moser-Neumann question has been one of the central problems in the field. This question asks whether or not one... more...

#### Algebraic Methods in Unstable Homotopy Theory

Cambridge University Press 2010; US$ 124.00The most modern and thorough treatment of unstable homotopy theory available. more...

#### CR Submanifolds of Complex Projective Space

Springer New York 2009; US$ 122.34This text begins with an introduction to complex differential geometry and the properties of complex manifolds. It then describes the properties of hypersurfaces of various complex spaces and CR manifolds, emphasizing CR submanifolds of maximal CR dimension. more...

#### Simplicial Homotopy Theory

Birkhäuser Basel 2009; US$ 64.84This book introduces basic tools of modern homotopy theory. It covers basic topics such as simplicial groups, Postnikov towers, and bisimplicial sets, as well as such advanced topics as homotopy limits and colimits, cosimplicial spaces, and homotopy coherence. more...

#### Nonlinear Computational Geometry

Springer New York 2009; US$ 195.76An original motivation for algebraic geometry was to understand curves and surfaces in three dimensions. Recent theoretical and technological advances in areas such as robotics, computer vision, computer-aided geometric design and molecular biology, together with the increased availability of computational resources, have brought these original questions... more...
