#### Combinatorial Homotopy and 4-Dimensional Complexes

De Gruyter 1991; US$ 224.00The aim of the series is to present new and important developments in pure and applied mathematics. Well established in the community over two decades, it offers a large library of mathematics including several important classics. The volumes supply thorough and detailed expositions of the methods and ideas essential to the topics in question.... more...

#### The Homotopy Category of Simply Connected 4-Manifolds

Cambridge University Press 2003; US$ 76.00Homotopy of 4-manifolds for researchers and graduate students. more...

#### Homology

Wiley 2008; US$ 167.00 US$ 150.30'Homology' as a concept became increasingly elusive during the course of the 20th century. The central debates and controversies concern both fundamental definitions and the nature of the criteria by which homology is judged. Attempts to move away from comparative morphology to ideas based on developmental pathways have tended to founder on the fact... more...

#### Shape Optimization And Optimal Design

CRC Press 2001; US$ 297.00This volume presents developments and advances in modelling passive and active control systems governed by partial differential equations. It emphasizes shape analysis, optimal shape design, controllability, nonlinear boundary control, and stabilization. The authors include essential data on exact boundary controllability of thermoelastic plates with... more...

#### Higher Structures in Geometry and Physics

Birkhäuser Boston 2010; US$ 161.12Centered on the higher algebraic structures in the work of Murray Gerstenhaber and Jim Stasheff, now ubiquitous in various areas of mathematics and theoretical physics, this volume shows how their work has been expanded into new realms of research. more...

#### String Topology and Cyclic Homology

Birkhäuser Basel 2006; US$ 27.46This book explores string topology, Hochschild and cyclic homology, assembling material from a wide scattering of scholarly sources in a single practical volume. The text string topology from the elementary bases to the most recent developments, presenting material for a broader audience that was formerly available only to advanced specialists. more...

#### ZZ/2 - Homotopy Theory

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

#### Statistical Models of Shape

Springer London 2008; US$ 155.29Deformable shape models have wide application in computer vision and biomedical image analysis. This book addresses a key issue in shape modelling: establishment of a meaningful correspondence between a set of shapes. Full implementation details are provided. 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...

#### Algebraic Models in Geometry

OUP Oxford 2008; US$ 62.99A text aimed at both geometers needing the tools of rational homotopy theory to understand and discover new results concerning various geometric subjects, and topologists who require greater breadth of knowledge about geometric applications of the algebra of homotopy theory. more...
