Title: | Topology [electronic resource] : An Introduction |
Author(s): |
Stefan Waldmann |
Date: | 2014 |
Publisher: | Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | This book provides a concise introduction to topology and is necessary for courses in differential geometry, functional analysis, algebraic topology, etc. Topology is a fundamental tool in most branches of pure mathematics and isalso omnipresent in m ore applied parts of mathematics. Therefore students will need fundamental topological notions already at an early stage in their bachelor programs. While there are already many excellent monographs on generaltopology, most of them are too large for a fir st bachelor course. Topology fills this gap and can be either used for self-study or as the basis of a topology course |
Contents: | Introduction |
Topological Spaces and Continuity | |
Construction of Topological Spaces | |

Publisher: | Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | In this new text, Steven Givantthe author of several acclaimed books, including works co-authored with Paul Halmos and Alfred Tarskidevelops three theories of duality for Boolean algebras with operators. Givant addressesthe two most recognized dualit ies (one algebraic and the other topological) and introduces a third duality, best understood as a hybrid of the first two. This text will be of interest to graduate students and researchers in the fieldsof mathematics, computer science, logic, and philos ophy who are interested in exploring special or general classes of Boolean algebras with operators. Readers should be familiar with the basic arithmetic and theory of Boolean algebras,as well as the fundamentals of point-set topology |

Note: | Providing an accessible approach to a special case of the Rank Theorem, the present text considers the exact finiteness properties of S-arithmetic subgroups of split reductive groups in positive characteristic when S contains onlytwo places. While th e proof of the general Rank Theorem uses an involved reduction theory due to Harder, by imposing the restrictions that the group is split and that S has only two places, one can instead make use of the theory oftwin buildings |

Title: | Towards the Mathematics of Quantum Field Theory [electronic resource] |
Author(s): |
Frdric Paugam |
Date: | 2014 |
Publisher: | Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | The aim of this book is to introduce mathematicians (and, in particular, graduate students) to the mathematical methods of theoretical and experimental quantum field theory, with an emphasis on coordinate-free presentations of themathematical objects in play. This should in turn promote interaction between mathematicians and physicists by supplying a common and flexible language for the good of both communities, even if the mathematical one is the primarytarget. This reference work provides a coheren t and complete mathematical toolbox for classical and quantum field theory, based on categorical and homotopical methods, representing an original contribution to the literature. The firstpart of the book introduces the mathematical methods needed to work with the physicists' spaces of fields, including parameterized and functional differential geometry, functorial analysis, and the homotopical geometric theory ofnon-linear partial differential equations, with applications to general gauge theories. The s econd part presents a large family of examples of classical field theories, both from experimental and theoretical physics, while the thirdpart provides an introduction to quantum field theory, presents various renormalization methods, and discusses the q uantization of factorization algebras. The book is primarily intended for pure mathematicians (and in particulargraduate students) who would like to learn about the mathematics of quantum field theory |

Title: | A Differential Approach to Geometry [electronic resource] : Geometric Trilogy III |
Author(s): |
Francis Borceux |
Date: | 2014 |
Publisher: | Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | This book presents the classical theory of curves in the plane and three-dimensional space, and the classical theory of surfaces in three-dimensional space. It pays particular attention to the historical development of the theoryand the preliminary a pproaches that support contemporary geometrical notions. It includes a chapter that lists a very wide scope of plane curves and their properties. The book approaches the threshold of algebraic topology, providingan integrated presentation fully accessible to undergraduate-level students. At the end of the 17th century, Newton and Leibniz developed differential calculus, thus making available the very wide range of differentiable functions,not just those constructed from polynomials. During the 18th centu ry, Euler applied these ideas to establish what is still today the classical theory of most general curves and surfaces, largely used in engineering. Enter thisfascinating world through amazing theorems and a wide supply of surprising examples. Reach the doors of algebraic topology by discovering just how an integer (= the Euler-Poincar characteristics) associated with a surface gives you alot of interesting information on the shape of the surface. And penetrate the intriguing world of Riemannian geometry , the geometry that underlies the theory of relativity. The book is of interest to all those who teach classicaldifferential geometry up to quite an advanced level. The chapter on Riemannian geometry is of great interest to those who have to intuitively introduce students to the highly technical nature of this branch of mathematics, inparticular when preparing students for courses on relativity |

Note: | This volume presents a multi-dimensional collection of articles highlighting recent developments in commutative algebra. It also includes an extensive bibliography and lists a substantial number of open problems that point tofuture directions of rese arch in the represented subfields. The contributions cover areas in commutative algebra that have flourished in the last few decades and are not yet well represented in book form. Highlighted topics andresearch methods include Noetherian and non- Noetheri an ring theory as well as integer-valued polynomials and functions. Specific topics include: Homological dimensions of Prfer-like rings Quasi complete rings Total graphs of rings Properties of prime ideals over various rings Bases for integer-valued p olynomials Boolean subrings The portable property of domains Probabilistic topics inIntn(D) Closure operations in Zariski-Riemann spaces of valuation domains Stability of domains Non-Noetherian grade Homotopy in integer-valued polynomials Localiza tions of global propertiesof rings Topics in integral closure Monoids and submonoids of domains The book includes twenty articles written by many of the most prominent researchers in the field. Most contributions are authored by attendees ofthe conferen ce in commutative algebra held at the Graz University of Technology in December 2012. There is also a small collection of invited articles authored by those who did not attend the conference. Following the model of the Grazconference, the volume contains a number of comprehensive survey articles along with related research articles featuring recent results that have not yet been published elsewhere |

Note: | This book gives an introduction to the very active field of combinatorics of affine Schubert calculus, explains the current state of the art, and states the current open problems. Affine Schubert calculus lies at the crossroads ofcombinatorics, geome try, and representation theory. Its modern development is motivated by two seemingly unrelated directions. One is the introduction of k-Schur functions in the study of Macdonald polynomial positivity, a mostlycombinatorial branch of symmetric function the ory. The other direction is the study of the Schubert bases of the (co)homology of the affine Grassmannian, an algebro-topological formulation of a problem in enumerative geometry. This isthe first introductory text on this subject. It contains many examp les in Sage, a free open source general purpose mathematical software system, to entice the reader to investigate the open problems. This book is written for advancedundergraduate and graduate students, as well as researchers, who want to become familiar with this fascinating new field |

Title: | Morse Theory and Floer Homology [electronic resource] |
Author(s): |
Michle Audin Mihai Damian |
Date: | 2014 |
Publisher: | London : Springer London : Imprint: Springer |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | This book is an introduction to modern methods of symplectic topology. It is devoted to explaining the solution of an important problem originating from classical mechanics: the 'Arnold conjecture', which asserts that the numberof 1-periodic trajecto ries of a non-degenerate Hamiltonian system is bounded below by the dimension of the homology of the underlying manifold. The first part is a thorough introduction to Morse theory, a fundamental tool ofdifferential topology. It defines the Morse complex a nd the Morse homology, and develops some of their applications. Morse homology also serves a simple model for Floer homology, which is covered in the second part. Floer homology isan infinite-dimensional analogue of Morse homology. Its involvement has bee n crucial in the recent achievements in symplectic geometry and in particular in the proof of the Arnold conjecture. The building blocks of Floer homology aremore intricate and imply the use of more sophisticated analytical methods, all of which are expla ined in this second part. The three appendices present a few prerequisites in differential geometry, algebraic topology and analysis. Thebook originated in a graduate course given at Strasbourg University, and contains a large range of figures and exercis es. Morse Theory and Floer Homology will be particularly helpful for graduate and postgraduate students |

Note: | This book pursues the accurate study of the mathematical foundations of Quantum Theories. It may be considered an introductory text on linear functional analysis with a focus on Hilbert spaces. Specific attention is given tospectral theory features t hat are relevant in physics. Having left the physical phenomenology in the background, it is the formal and logical aspects of the theory that are privileged. Another not lesser purpose is to collect in oneplace a number of useful rigorous statements on t he mathematical structure of Quantum Mechanics, including some elementary, yet fundamental, results on the Algebraic Formulation of Quantum Theories. In the attempt to reach out toMaster's or PhD students, both in physics and mathematics, the material is designed to be self-contained: it includes a summary of point-set topology and abstract measure theory, together with an appendix on differential geometry. Thebook should benefit established researchers to organise and present the profusion of advanced ma terial disseminated in the literature. Most chapters are accompanied by exercises, many of which are solved explicitly |

Note: | Traditionally a subject of number theory, continued fractions appear in dynamical systems, algebraic geometry, topology, and even celestial mechanics. The rise of computational geometry has resulted in renewed interest inmultidimensional generalizati ons of continued fractions. Numerous classical theorems have been extended to the multidimensional case, casting light on phenomena in diverse areas of mathematics. This book introduces a new geometricvision of continued fractions. It covers several appli cations to questions related tosuch areas asDiophantine approximation, algebraic number theory, and toric geometry. The reader will find an overview of current progress inthe geometric theory of multidimensional continued fractions accompanied by current ly open problems. Whenever possible, we illustrate geometric constructions with figures and examples. Each chapter has exercises useful forundergraduate or graduate courses |

Note: | This welcome boon for students of algebraic topology cuts a much-needed central path between other texts whose treatment of the classification theorem for compact surfaces is either too formalized and complex for those withoutdetailed background know ledge, or too informal to afford students a comprehensive insight into the subject. Its dedicated, student-centred approach details a near-complete proof of this theorem, widely admired for its efficacy andformal beauty. The authors present the technical tools needed to deploy the method effectively as well as demonstrating their use in a clearly structured, worked example. Ideal for students whose mastery of algebraic topology may be awork-in-progress, the text introduces key notions such as fundamental groups, homology groups, and the Euler-Poincar characteristic. These prerequisites are the subject of detailed appendices that enable focused, discrete learningwhere it is required, without interrupting the carefully planned structure of the core expositi on. Gently guiding readers through the principles, theory, and applications of the classification theorem, the authors aim to foster genuineconfidence in its use and in so doing encourage readers to move on to a deeper exploration of the versatile and val uable techniques available in algebraic topology |

Note: | This manuscript is devoted to classifying the isomorphism classes of the virtually cyclic subgroups of the braid groups of the 2-sphere. As well as enabling us to understand better the global structure of these groups, it marks animportant step in th e computation of the K-theory of their group rings. The classification itself is somewhat intricate, due to the rich structure of the finite subgroups of these braid groups, and is achieved by an in-depth analysisof their group-theoretical and topological properties, such as their centralisers, normalisers and cohomological periodicity. Another important aspect of our work is the close relationship of the braid groups with mapping class groups.This manuscript will serve as a reference for the study of bra id groups of low-genus surfaces, and isaddressed to graduate students and researchers in low-dimensional, geometric and algebraic topology and in algebra |

Note: | Rational homotopy theory is today one of the major trends in algebraic topology. Despite the great progress made in only a few years, a textbook properly devoted to this subject still was lacking until now The appearance ofthe text in book form is hi ghly welcome, since it will satisfy the need of many interested people. Moreover, it contains an approach and point of view that do not appear explicitly in the current literature. Zentralblatt MATH(Review of First Edition) The monograph is intended as a n introduction to the theory of minimal models. Anyone who wishes to learn about the theory will find this book a very helpful and enlightening one. There are plenty ofexamples, illustrations, diagrams and exercises. The material is developed with patienc e and clarity. Efforts are made to avoid generalities and technicalities that may distract the reader or obscure the main theme. The theory and itspower are elegantly presented. This is an excellent monograph. Bulletin of the American Mathematical Society (Review of First Edition) This completely revised and corrected version of the well-known Florence notes circulatedby the authors together with E. Friedlander examines basic topology, emphasizing homotopy theory. Included is a discussion of Postnikov to wers and rational homotopy theory. This is then followed by an in-depth look at differentialforms and de Thams theorem on simplical complexes. In addition, Sullivans results on computing the rational homotopy type from forms is presented. New to the Seco nd Edition: *Fully-revised appendices including an expandeddiscussion of the Hirsch lemma *Presentation of a natural proof of a Serre spectral sequence result *Updated content throughout the book, reflecting advances in the area of homotopy theory With i ts modern approach and timelyrevisions, this second edition of Rational Homotopy Theory and Differential Forms will be a valuable resource for graduate students and re |

Note: | The theoriesdescribing seemingly unrelated areas of physics have surprising analogies that have arousedthe curiosity of scientists and motivatedefforts toidentify reasons for their existence.Comparative study ofphysical theories has revealed the pres ence of a common topological and geometric structure. The Mathematical Structure of Classical and Relativistic Physicsis the first book to analyzethis structure in depth, thereby exposing therelationship between (a) global physical variables and (b) space and time elements such as points, lines, surfaces, instants, and intervals. Combining this relationship with the inner and outer orientation of space and time allows oneto construct a classification diagram for variables, equations, and other theoretical characteristics. The bookis divided into three parts. The first introduces the framework for the above-mentioned classification, methodicallydevelopingageometric and topologicalformulationapplicable to allphysical laws and properties the second applies t his formulation to a detailed study of particle dynamics, electromagnetism, deformable solids, fluid dynamics,heat conduction, and gravitation. The third part further analyses the general structure of the classification diagram for variables and equations of physical theories. Suitable for a diverse audience of physicists, engineers, andmathematicians, The Mathematical Structure of Classical and Relativistic Physics offers a valuable resource for studying the physical world. Written at alevel accessible t o graduate and advanced undergraduatestudents inmathematical physics, the book can be used as a research monograph across various areas of physics, engineering and mathematics, and as a supplemental text for a broad range of upper-level scientific coursew ork |

Note: | Graphs on Surfaces: Dualities, Polynomials, and Knots offers an accessible and comprehensive treatment of recent developments on generalized duals of graphs on surfaces, and their applications. The authors illustrate theinterdependency between dualit y, medial graphs and knots how this interdependency is reflected in algebraic invariants of graphs and knots and how it can be exploited to solve problems in graph and knot theory. Taking aconstructive approach, the authors emphasize how generalized duals and related ideas arise by localizing classical constructions, such as geometric duals and Tait graphs, and then removing artificial restrictions in these constructionsto obtain full extensions of them to embedded graphs. The authors demonstrate the bene fits of these generalizations to embedded graphs in chapters describing their applications to graph polynomials and knots. Graphs on Surfaces:Dualities, Polynomials, and Knots also provides a self-contained introduction to graphs on surfaces, generalized duals, topological graph polynomials, and knot polynomials that is accessible both to graph theorists and to knottheorists. Directed at those with some familiarity with basic graph theory and knot theory, this book is appropriate for graduate students an d researchers in either area. Because the area is advancing so rapidly, the authors give acomprehensive overview of the topic and include a robust bibliography, aiming to provide the reader with the necessary foundations to stay abreast of the field. The reader will come away from the text convinced of advantages ofconsidering these higher genus analogues of constructions of plane and abstract graphs, and with a good understanding of how they arise |

Note: | Foundations of Abstract Analysis is the first of a two book series offered as the second (expanded) edition to the previously published text Real Analysis. It is written for a graduate-level course on real analysis and presentedin a self-contained wa y suitable both for classroom use and for self-study. While this book carries the rigor of advancedmodern analysis texts, it elaborates the material in much greater details and therefore fills a gap betweenintroductory level texts (with topics developed in Euclidean spaces) and advanced level texts (exclusively dealing with abstract spaces) making it accessible for a much wider interested audience. To relieve the reader of thepotential overload of new words, definitions, and concepts, the book (in its u nique feature) provides lists of new terms at the end of each section, in a chronological order. Difficult to understand abstract notions are preceded byinformal discussions and blueprints followed by thorough details andsupported by examples and figures. To further reinforce the text, hints and solutions to almost a half of more than 580 problems are provided at the end of thebook, still leaving ample exercises for assignments. This volume covers topics in point-set topology and measure and integration. P rerequisites include advanced calculus, linear algebra, complex variables, and calculus basedprobability |

Note: | Configurations can be studied from a graph-theoretical viewpoint via the so-called Levi graphs and lie at the heart of graphs, groups, surfaces, and geometries, all of which are very active areas of mathematical exploration. Inthis self-contained tex tbook, algebraic graph theory is used to introduce groups topological graph theory is used to explore surfaces and geometric graph theory is implemented to analyze incidence geometries. After a preview ofconfigurations in Chapter 1, a concise introduction to graph theory is presented in Chapter 2, followed by a geometric introduction to groups in Chapter 3. Maps and surfaces are combinatorially treated in Chapter 4. Chapter 5introduces the concept of incidence structure through vertex colored graphs, and the combinatorial aspects of classical configurations are studied.Geometric aspects, some historical remarks, references, and applicationsof classicalconfigurationsappear in the last chapter. With over two hundred illustrations, challenging exercises at t he end of each chapter, a comprehensive bibliography, and a set of open problems, Configurations from a Graphical Viewpoint iswell suited for a graduate graph theory course, an advanced undergraduate seminar, or a self-contained reference for mathematicia ns and researchers |

Note: | In many areas of mathematics some higher operations are arising. These have become so important that several research projects refer to such expressions. Higher operations form new types of algebras. The key tounderstanding and comparing them, to cre ating invariants of their action is operad theory. This is a point of view that is 40 years old in algebraic topology, but the new trend is its appearance in several other areas, such asalgebraic geometry, mathematical physics, differential geometry, and combinatorics. The present volume is the first comprehensive and systematic approach to algebraic operads. An operad is an algebraic device that serves to study allkinds of algebras (associative, commutative, Lie, Poisson, A-infinity, etc.) from a concept ual point of view. The book presents this topic with an emphasis on Koszul duality theory. After a modern treatment of Koszul duality forassociative algebras, the theory is extended to operads. Applications to homotopy algebra are given, for instance the HomotopyTransfer Theorem. Although the necessary notions of algebra are recalled, readers areexpected to be familiarwith elementary homological algebra. Each chapter ends with a helpful summary and exercises. A full chapter is devoted to examples, and num erous figures are included. After an elementary chapter on classical algebra, accessible toundergraduate students,the level increases gradually through the book. However, the authors have done their best to make it suitable for graduate students: three ap pendices review the basic results needed in order to understand thevarious chapters. Since higher algebra is becoming essential in several research areas like deformation theory, algebraic geometry, representation theory, differential geometry, algebraic combinatorics, and mathematical physics, thebook can also be used as a reference work by researchers. |

Note: | This text deals with A^{1}-homotopy theory over a base field, i.e., with the natural homotopy theory associated to the category of smooth varieties over a field in which the affine line is imposed to be contractible. It isa natural sequel to the foundational paper on A^{1}-homotopy theory written together with V. Voevodsky. Inspired by classical results in algebraic topology, we present new techniques, new results and applications related to theproperties and computations of A^{1-homotopy sheaves, A1-homotogy sheaves, and sheaves with generalized transfers, as well as to algebraic vector bundles over affine smooth varieties} |

Note: | In the more than 100 years since the fundamental group was first introduced by Henri Poincar it has evolved to play an important role in different areas of mathematics. Originally conceived as part of algebraic topology, thisessential concept and its analogies have found numerous applications in mathematics that are still being investigated today, and which are explored in this volume, the result of a meeting at Heidelberg University that brought togethermathematicians who use or study fundamental gr oups in their work with an eye towards applications in arithmetic. The book acknowledges the varied incarnations of the fundamental group: pro-finite, -adic, p-adic, pro-algebraic andmotivic. It explores a wealth of topics that range from anabelian geomet ry (in particular the section conjecture), the -adic polylogarithm, gonality questions of modular curves, vector bundles in connection with monodromy, andrelative pro-algebraic completions, to a motivic version of Minhyong Kim's non-abelian Chabauty metho d and p-adic integration after Coleman. The editor has also included the abstracts of all the talks given at the Heidelberg meeting,as well as the notes on Coleman integration and on Grothendieck's fundamental group with a view towards anabelian geometry taken from a series of introductory lectures given by Amnon Besser and Tams Szamuely, respectively |

Note: | In the study of algebraic/analytic varieties a key aspect is the description of the invariants of their singularities. This book targets the challenging non-isolated case. Let f be a complex analytic hypersurface germ in threevariables whose zero set has a 1-dimensional singular locus. We develop an explicit procedure and algorithm that describe the boundary M of the Milnor fiber of f as an oriented plumbed 3-manifold. This method also provides thecharacteristic polynomial of the algebraic monodromy. We then determine the multiplicity system of the open book decomposition of M cut out by the argument of g for any complex analytic germ g such that the pair (f,g) is an ICIS.Moreover, the horizontal and vertical monodromies of the transversal type singu larities associated with the singular locus of f and of the ICIS (f,g) are also described. The theory is supported by a substantial amount of examples,including homogeneous and composed singularities and suspensions. The properties peculiar to M are also emphasized |

Note: | This book is about modern algebraic geometry. The title A Royal Road to Algebraic Geometry is inspired by the famous anecdote about the king asking Euclid if there really existed no simpler way for learning geometry, than to readall of his work Eleme nts. Euclid is said to have answered: There is no royal road to geometry! The book starts by explaining this enigmatic answer, the aim of the book being to argue that indeed, in some sense there is a royalroad to algebraic geometry. From a point of depart ure in algebraic curves, the exposition moves on to the present shape of the field, culminating with Alexander Grothendiecks theory of schemes. Contemporary homological tools areexplained. The reader will follow a directed path leading up to the main elem ents of modern algebraic geometry. When the road is completed, the reader is empowered to start navigating in this immense field, and to open up the door to awonderful field of research. The greatest scientific experience of a lifetime! |

Note: | In a detailed and comprehensive introduction to the theory of plane algebraic curves, the authors examine this classical area of mathematics that both figured prominently in ancient Greek studies and remains a source ofinspiration and topic of resear ch to this day. Arising from notes for a course given at the University of Bonn in Germany, Plane Algebraic Curves reflects the authors concern for the student audience through emphasis uponmotivation, development of imagination, and understanding of basi c ideas. As classical objects, curves may be viewed from many angles this text provides a foundation for the comprehension and exploration of modern work onsingularities. --- In the first chapter one finds many special curves with very attractive geometr ic presentations the wealth of illustrations is a distinctive characteristic of this book and an introduction toprojective geometry (over the complex numbers). In the second chapter one finds a very simple proof of Bezouts theorem and a detailed discuss ion of cubics. The heart of this book and how else could it be with the first author is the chapter on the resolution of singularities (always over the complex numbers). () Especially remarkable is the outlook to further work on the topics discussed, wit h numerous references to the literature. Many examplesround off this successful representation of a classical and yet still very much alive subject. (Mathematical Reviews) |

Note: | Tamari lattices originated from weakenings or reinterpretations of the familar associativity law. Thiswas the subject of Dov Tamari's thesis at the Sorbonne in Paris in 1951 and the central theme of his subsequent mathematicalwork. Tamari lattices ca n be realized in terms of polytopes called associahedra, which in fact also appeared first in Tamari's thesis. By now these beautiful structures have made their appearance in many different areas of pure andapplied mathematics, such as algebra, combinator ics, computer science, category theory, geometry, topology, and also in physics. Their interdisciplinary nature provides much fascination and value. On the occasion of Dov Tamari'scentennial birthday, this book provides an introduction to topical research related to Tamari's work and ideas. Most of the articles collected in it are written in a way accessible to a wide audience of students and researchers inmathematics and mathematical physics and are accompanied by high quality illustrations |

Note: | Algebraic K-theory encodes important invariants for several mathematical disciplines, spanning from geometric topology and functional analysis to number theory and algebraic geometry. As is commonly encountered, this powerfulmathematical object is ve ry hard to calculate. Apart from Quillen's calculations of finite fields and Suslin's calculation of algebraically closed fields, few complete calculations were available before the discovery of homologicalinvariants offered by motivic cohomology and topo logical cyclic homology. This book covers the connection between algebraic K-theory and Bkstedt, Hsiang and Madsen's topological cyclic homology and proves that the difference betweenthe theories are locally constant. The usefulness of this theorem stems from being more accessible for calculations than K-theory, and hence a single calculation of K-theory can be used with homological calculations to obtain ahost of nearby calculations in K-theory. For instance, Quillen's calculation of the K-theory of fini te fields gives rise to Hesselholt and Madsen's calculations for local fields, and Voevodsky's calculations for the integers giveinsight into the diffeomorphisms of manifolds. In addition to the proof of the full integral version of the local corresponden ce between K-theory and topological cyclic homology, the book provides an introduction to the necessarybackground in algebraic K-theory and highly structured homotopy theory collecting all necessary tools into one common framework. It relies on simplicial techniques, and contains an appendix summarizing the methods widely used in thefield. The book is intended for graduate students and scientists interested in algebraic K-theory, and presupposes a basic knowledge of algebraic topology |

Note: | The most important invariant of a topological space is its fundamental group. When this is trivial, the resulting homotopy theory is well researched and familiar. In the general case, however, homotopy theory over nontrivialfundamental groups is much more problematic and far less well understood. Syzygies and Homotopy Theory explores the problem of nonsimply connected homotopy in the first nontrivial cases and presents, for the first time, a systematicrehabilitation of Hilbert's method of syzygies in the context of non-simply connected homotopy theory. The first part of the book is theoretical, formulated to allow a general finitely presented group as a fundamental group. Theinnovation here is to regard syzygies as stable modules rather than minimal modules. Inevitably this forces a reconsideration of the problems of noncancellation these are confronted in the second, practical, part of the book. Inparticular, the second part of the book considers how the theory works out in detail for the specific e xamples Fn F where Fn is a free group of rank n and F is finite. Another innovation is to parametrize the first syzygy in terms ofthe more familiar class of stably free modules. Furthermore, detailed description of these stably free modules is effected by a suitable modification of the method of Milnor squares. The theory developed within this book has potentialapplications in various branches of algebra, including homological algebra, ring theory and K-theory. Syzygies and Homotopy Theory will be of inte rest to researchers and also to graduate students with a background in algebra andalgebraic topology |

Whilethe first volume of this title, subtitled Classification of Critical Points, Caustics and Wave Fronts, contained the zoology of differentiable mapsthat is, was devoted to a description of what, where, and how singularities could beencounteredthis second volume concentrates on elements of theanatomy and physiology of singu larities of differentiable functions. The questions considered here are about the structure of singularities and how they function. Inthe first part the authors consider the topological structure of isolated critical points of holomorphic functions: vanis hing cycles distinguished bases intersection matricesmonodromy groupsthe variation operatorand theirinterconnections and method of calculation. The second part is devoted to the study of the asymptotic behavior of integrals of the method of stationary pha se, which is widely met within applications. The third and last part dealswith integrals evaluated over level manifolds in a neighborhood of the critical point of a holomorphic function. Thismonograph is suitablefor mathematicians, researchers, postgradua tes, and specialists in the areas ofmechanics, physics, technology, and other sciences dealing with the theory of singularities of differentiable maps |

Note: | A Marcus Wallenberg Symposium on Perspectives in Analysis, Geometry, and Topology was held at Stockholm University in May 2008. The choice of subjects of the Symposium and present volume was motivated by the work and mathematicalinterests of Oleg Vir o to whom the Symposium and this volume are dedicated. As a professor of Uppsala University, Viro has made invaluable contributions to Swedish research by complementing the country's longstanding tradition inanalysis with his own renowned expertise in geo metry and topology. Consolidating in a single volume a major portion of the recent, impressive encounters among the fields of analysis, geometry, and topology would be too ambitious. Thecollection of papers in this work still should give some sense of the development of the fields and their interactions. The topics presented by leading experts in their respective fields include: algebraic geometry, in particular, realalgebraic geometry, differential geometry, symplectic and contact geometry, complex analy sis, three- and four-dimensional manifolds, and invariants of links. Also included in the book is the opening speech of the Symposium by LennartCarleson on the Unity of Mathematics. Contributors: S. Akbulut K. Baker R. Berman A. Degtyarev J.-P. Demailly T . Ekholm Y.

Note: | This text is designed as an introduction to Lie groups and their actions on manifolds, one that is accessible both to a broad range of mathematicians and to graduate students.Building onthe authors' Lie-Gruppen undLie-Algebren textbook from 1991, itp resents the fundamental principles of Lie groupswhile incorporating the past 20 years of the authors' teaching and research, and giving due emphasis to the role played by differential geometryin the field. The text is entirely self contained,and provides ample guidance to students with the presence of many exercises and selected hints. The work begins with a study of matrix groups, which serve as examples to concretelyand directly illustratethe correspondence between groups and their Lie algebras. In the second part of the book, theauthorsinvestigate the basic structure and representation theory of finite dimensional Lie algebras,suchasthe rough structure theory relevant to the theorems of Levi and Malcev, the fine structure of semisimple Lie algebras (ro ot decompositions), and questions related to representation theory. In the third part of the book, the authorsturn to global issues, most notably the interplay between differential geometry and Lie theory. Finally, thefourth part of the book deals with th e structure theory of Lie groups, includingsome refined applications of theexponential function, various classes of Lie groups, andstructural issues for general Lie groups. To round out the book's content, several appendices appear at the end of thislast part. Containing a wealth of useful information,including new results, Structure and Geometry of Lie Groups provides a unique perspective on the study of Lie groups andis a valuable addition to the literature. Prerequisites are generally kept to a minimum , and various pedagogicalfeatures make it an excellent supplemental text for graduate students. However, the work also contains much that will be of interest to more adva |

Note: | The first part of the book studies pseudo-periodic maps of a closed surface of genus greater than or equal to two. This class of homeomorphisms was originally introduced by J. Nielsen in 1944 as an extension of periodic maps. Inthis book, the conjuga cy classes of the (chiral) pseudo-periodic mapping classes are completely classified, and Nielsens incomplete classification is corrected. The second part applies the results of the first part to the topologyof degeneration of Riemann surfaces. It is show n that the set of topological types of all the singular fibers appearing in one-parameter holomorphic families of Riemann surfaces is in a bijective correspondence with the set ofconjugacy classes of the pseudo-periodic maps of negative twists. The corres pondence is given by the topological monodromy |

Note: | This volume deals with the theory of finite topological spaces and its relationship with the homotopy and simple homotopy theory of polyhedra. The interaction between their intrinsic combinatorial and topological structures makesfinite spaces a usefu l tool for studying problems in Topology, Algebra and Geometry from a new perspective. In particular, the methods developed in this manuscript are used to study Quillens conjecture on the poset of p-subgroups ofa finite group and the Andrews-Curtis conjec ture on the 3-deformability of contractible two-dimensional complexes. This self-contained work constitutes the first detailed exposition on the algebraic topology of finite spaces. It isintended for topologists and combinatorialists, but it is also recom mended for advanced undergraduate students and graduate students with a modest knowledge of Algebraic Topology |
