Cambridge University Press 2002; US$ 95.00An introduction to algebraic K-theory with no prerequisite beyond a first semester of algebra. more...

#### Sheaf Theory

Cambridge University Press 1975; US$ 64.00Sheaf theory provides a means of discussing many different kinds of geometric objects in respect of the connection between their local and global properties. more...

#### Lower K- and L-theory

Cambridge University Press 1992; US$ 44.00This is the first unified treatment in book form of the lower K-groups of Bass and the lower L-groups of the author. more...

#### Hochschild Cohomology of Von Neumann Algebras

Cambridge University Press 1995; US$ 56.00This book gives an introduction to biotransformations, the practice of harnessing biological catalysts for the preparation of useful chemicals. more...

#### An Introduction to K-Theory for C*-Algebras

Cambridge University Press 2000; US$ 44.00This book provides a very elementary introduction to K-theory for C*-algebras, and is ideal for beginning graduate students. more...

#### The Geometry of Spherical Space Form Groups

World Scientific Publishing Company 1989; US$ 79.00 US$ 71.89In this volume, the geometry of spherical space form groups is studied using the eta invariant. The author reviews the analytical properties of the eta invariant of Atiyah-Patodi-Singer and describes how the eta invariant gives rise to torsion invariants in both K-theory and equivariant bordism. The eta invariant is used to compute the K-theory of... more...

#### Intersection Cohomology

Birkhäuser Boston 2009; US$ 71.16This book is a publication in Swiss Seminars, a subseries of Progress in Mathematics. It is an expanded version of the notes from a seminar on intersection cohomology theory, which met at the University of Bern, Switzerland, in the spring of 1983. more...

#### Cohomology of Finite Groups

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2013; US$ 100.39Some Historical Background This book deals with the cohomology of groups, particularly finite ones. Historically, the subject has been one of significant interaction between algebra and topology and has directly led to the creation of such important areas of mathematics as homo logical algebra and algebraic K-theory. It arose primarily in the 1920's... more...

#### Categories for the Working Mathematician

Springer New York 2013; US$ 59.43Categories for the Working Mathematician provides an array of general ideas useful in a wide variety of fields. Starting from the foundations, this book illuminates the concepts of category, functor, natural transformation, and duality. The book then turns to adjoint functors, which provide a description of universal constructions, an analysis of the... more...

#### Hypoelliptic Laplacian and Bott–Chern Cohomology

Springer International Publishing 2013; US$ 88.58This book provides the proof of a complex geometric version of a well-known result in algebraic geometry: the theorem of Riemann–Roch–Grothendieck for proper submersions. It gives an equality of cohomology classes in Bott–Chern cohomology. more...
