#### Homotopy Theory: Proceedings of the Durham Symposium 1985

Cambridge University Press 1987; US$ 40.00This 1987 volume presents a collection of papers given at the 1985 Durham Symposium on homotopy theory. more...

#### ZZ/2 - Homotopy Theory

Cambridge University Press 1980; US$ 52.00This account is a study of twofold symmetry in algebraic topology. more...

#### Hyperbolic Problems: Theory, Numerics and Applications (Volume 2)

World Scientific Publishing Company 2012; US$ 150.00 US$ 136.50This two-volume book is devoted to mathematical theory, numerics and applications of hyperbolic problems. Hyperbolic problems have not only a long history but also extremely rich physical background. The development is highly stimulated by their applications to Physics, Biology, and Engineering Sciences; in particular, by the design of effective numerical... more...

#### Advances in Homotopy Theory

Cambridge University Press 1989; US$ 52.00This volume records the lectures given at a conference to celebrate Professor Ioan James' 60th birthday. more...

#### Spectra and the Steenrod Algebra

Elsevier Science 2011; US$ 148.25I have intended this book to be more than just the sum of its chapters, and the introduction is, in part, an attempt to spell out what the more is. Algebraic topology is the study of topological problems by algebraic means. More precisely, this has come to be framed as the study of topological categories by means of functors to algebraic categories.... more...

#### Advances in the Homotopy Analysis Method

World Scientific Publishing Company 2013; US$ 100.00 US$ 91.00Unlike other analytic techniques, the Homotopy Analysis Method (HAM) is independent of small/large physical parameters. Besides, it provides great freedom to choose equation type and solution expression of related linear high-order approximation equations. The HAM provides a simple way to guarantee the convergence of solution series. Such uniqueness... more...

#### Shape Theory

Elsevier Science 1982; US$ 19.95North-Holland Mathematical Library, Volume 26: Shape Theory: The Inverse System Approach presents a systematic introduction to shape theory by providing background materials, motivation, and examples, including shape theory and invariants, pro-groups, shape fibrations, and metric compacta. The publication first ponders on the foundations of shape... more...

#### Fixed Point Theory in Distance Spaces

Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 71.66This is a monograph on fixed point theory, covering the purely metric aspects of the theory–particularly results that do not depend on any algebraic structure of the underlying space. Traditionally, a large body of metric fixed point theory has been couched in a functional analytic framework. This aspect of the theory has been written about extensively.... more...

#### Homotopy of Extremal Problems

De Gruyter 2007; US$ 252.00The series is devoted to the publication of high-level monographs which cover the whole spectrum of current nonlinear analysis and applications in various fields, such as optimization, control theory, systems theory, mechanics, engineering, and other sciences. One of its main objectives is to make available to the professional community... more...

#### Beyond Perturbation

CRC Press 2003; US$ 159.95Solving nonlinear problems is inherently difficult, and the stronger the nonlinearity, the more intractable solutions become. Analytic approximations often break down as nonlinearity becomes strong, and even perturbation approximations are valid only for problems with weak nonlinearity. This book introduces a powerful new analytic method for nonlinear... more...
