#### Advanced Mathematical And Computational Tools In Metrology Vi

World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 154.00 US$ 140.14This volume collects refereed contributions based on the presentations made at the Sixth Workshop on Advanced Mathematical and Computational Tools in Metrology, held at the Istituto di Metrologia “G. Colonnetti” (IMGC), Torino, Italy, in September 2003. It provides a forum for metrologists, mathematicians and software engineers that will encourage... more...

#### Analytic Hyperbolic Geometry

World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 118.00 US$ 107.38This is the first book on analytic hyperbolic geometry, fully analogous to analytic Euclidean geometry. Analytic hyperbolic geometry regulates relativistic mechanics just as analytic Euclidean geometry regulates classical mechanics. The book presents a novel gyrovector space approach to analytic hyperbolic geometry, fully analogous to the well-known... more...

#### Orbifolds and Stringy Topology

Cambridge University Press 2007; US$ 80.00Introduces the theory of orbifolds from a modern perspective, providing a detailed description of the Chen-Ruan cohomology. more...

#### Topics In Almost Hermitian Geometry And Related Fields - Proceedings In Honor Of Professor K Sekigawa's 60th Birthday

World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 109.00 US$ 99.19This volume contains a valuable collection of research articles by active and well-known mathematicians in differential geometry and mathematical physics, contributed to mark Professor Kouei Sekigawa’s 60th birthday. The papers feature many new and significant results while also reviewing developments in the field. The illustrious career of Professor... more...

#### Lie Theory

Birkhäuser Boston 2006; US$ 133.61Semisimple Lie groups, and their algebraic analogues over fields other than the reals, are of fundamental importance in geometry, analysis, and mathematical physics. Three independent, self-contained volumes, under the general title Lie Theory , feature survey work and original results by well-established researchers in key areas of semisimple Lie... more...

#### Poisson Structures and Their Normal Forms

Birkhäuser Basel 2006; US$ 106.40Poisson manifolds play a fundamental role in Hamiltonian dynamics, where they serve as phase spaces. They also arise naturally in other mathematical problems, and form a bridge from the "commutative world" to the "noncommutative world". The aim of this book is twofold: On the one hand, it gives a quick, self-contained introduction to Poisson geometry... more...

#### The Geometry Of Hessian Structures

World Scientific Publishing Company 2007; US$ 79.00 US$ 71.89The geometry of Hessian structures is a fascinating emerging field of research. It is in particular a very close relative of Kählerian geometry, and connected with many important pure mathematical branches such as affine differential geometry, homogeneous spaces and cohomology. The theory also finds deep relation to information geometry in applied... more...

#### Recent Progress In Conformal Geometry

World Scientific Publishing Company 2007; US$ 157.00 US$ 142.87This book presents a new front of research in conformal geometry, on sign-changing Yamabe-type problems and contact form geometry in particular. New ground is broken with the establishment of a Morse lemma at infinity for sign-changing Yamabe-type problems. This family of problems, thought to be out of reach a few years ago, becomes a family of problems... more...

#### The User's Approach For Topological Methods In 3d Dynamical Systems

World Scientific Publishing Company 2007; US$ 79.00 US$ 71.89This book presents the development and application of some topological methods in the analysis of data coming from 3D dynamical systems (or related objects). The aim is to emphasize the scope and limitations of the methods, what they provide and what they do not provide. Braid theory, the topology of surface homeomorphisms, data analysis and the reconstruction... more...

#### Duality for Nonconvex Approximation and Optimization

Springer New York 2007; US$ 158.99The theory of convex optimization has been constantly developing over the past 30 years. Most recently, many researchers have been studying more complicated classes of problems that still can be studied by means of convex analysis, so-called "anticonvex" and "convex-anticonvex" optimizaton problems. This manuscript contains an exhaustive... more...
