Title:Cohomological Aspects in Complex Non-Khler Geometry [electronic resource]
Author(s): Daniele Angella
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:In these notes, we provide a summary of recentresults on the cohomological properties of compact complex manifolds not endowed with a Khler structure. On the one hand, the large number of developed analytic techniques makes itpossible to prove strong cohomological properties for compact Khler manifolds. On the other, in order to further investigate any of these properties, it is natural to look for manifolds that do not have any Khler structure. Wefocus in particular on studying Bott-Chern and Aeppli cohomologies of compact complex manifolds. Several results concerning the computations of Dolbeault and Bott-Chern cohomologies on nilmanifolds are summarized, allowing readers tostudy explicit examples. Manifolds endowed with almost-complex structures, or with other special structures (such as, for example, symplectic, generalized-complex, etc.), are also considered

Title:Mathematical Physics [electronic resource] : A Modern Introduction to Its Foundations
Author(s): Sadri Hassani
Date:2013
Edition:2nd ed. 2013
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The goal of this book is to expose the reader to the indispensable role that mathematics---often very abstract---plays in modern physics. Starting with the notion of vector spaces, the first half of the book develops topics asdiverse as algebras, cla ssical orthogonal polynomials, Fourier analysis, complex analysis, differential and integral equations, operator theory, and multi-dimensional Green's functions. The second half of the book introduces groups,manifolds, Lie groups and their representations , Clifford algebras and their representations, and fiber bundles and their applications to differential geometry and gauge theories. This second edition is a substantial revision of thefirst one with a complete rewriting of many chapters and the addition of new ones, including chapters on algebras, representation of Clifford algebras and spinors, fiber bundles, and gauge theories. The spirit of the first edition,namely the balance between rigor and physical application, has been maintained, as is the abun dance of historical notes and worked out examples that demonstrate the unreasonable effectiveness of mathematics in modern physics.Einstein has famously said, The most incomprehensible thing about nature is that it is comprehensible. What he had in mind w as reiterated in another one of his famous quotes concerning the question of how ... mathematics, beingafter all a product of human thought, is so admirably appropriate to the objects of reality. It is a question that comes to everyone's mind when encoun tering the highly abstract mathematics required for a deep understanding of modernphysics. It is the experience that Eugene Wigner so profoundly described as the unreasonable effectiveness of mathematics in the natural sciences.

Title:An Introduction to the Khler-Ricci Flow [electronic resource]

Vincent Guedj
Date:2013
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This volume collects lecture notes from courses offered at several conferences and workshops, and provides the first exposition in book form of the basic theory of the Khler-Ricci flow and its current state-of-the-art. Whileseveral excellent books on Khler-Einstein geometry are available, there have been no such works on the Khler-Ricci flow. The book will serve as a valuable resource for graduate students and researchers in complex differentialgeometry, complex algebraic geometry and Riemannian geom etry, and will hopefully foster further developments in this fascinating area of research. The Ricci flow was first introduced by R. Hamilton in the early 1980s, and is centralin G. Perelmans celebrated proof of the Poincar conjecture. When specialized f or Khler manifolds, it becomes the Khler-Ricci flow, and reduces to a scalar PDE (parabolic complex Monge-Ampre equation). As a spin-off of hisbreakthrough, G. Perelman proved the convergence of the Khler-Ricci flow on Khler-Einstein manifolds of positive scalar curvature (Fano manifolds). Shortly after, G. Tian and J. Song discovered a complex analogue of Perelmansideas: the Khler-Ricci flow is a metric embodiment of the Minimal Model Program of the underlying manifold, and flips and divisorial contracti ons assume the role of Perelmans surgeries

Title:Hypoelliptic Laplacian and BottChern Cohomology [electronic resource] : A Theorem of RiemannRochGrothendieck in Complex Geometry
Author(s): Jean-Michel Bismut
Date:2013
Publisher:Heidelberg : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Birkhuser
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The book provides the proof of a complex geometric version of a well-known result in algebraic geometry: the theorem of RiemannRochGrothendieck for proper submersions. It gives an equality of cohomology classes inBottChern cohomology, which is a refi nement for complex manifolds of de Rham cohomology. When the manifolds are Khler, our main result is known. A proof can be given using the elliptic Hodge theory of the fibres, its deformationvia Quillen's superconnections, and a version in families of the 'fantastic cancellations' of McKeanSinger in local index theory. In the general case, this approach breaks down because the cancellations do not occur any more.Onetool used in the book is a deformation of the Hodge theory of the fibres to a hypoelliptic Hodge theory, in such a way that the relevant cohomological information is preserved, and 'fantastic cancellations' do occur for thedeformation. The deformed hypoelliptic Laplacian acts on the total space of the relative tangent bundle of the fibres. Whil e the original hypoelliptic Laplacian discovered by the author can be described in terms of the harmonicoscillator along the tangent bundle and of the geodesic flow, here, the harmonic oscillator has to be replaced by a quartic oscillator.Another idea dev eloped in the book is that while classical elliptic Hodge theory is based on theHermitian product on forms, the hypoelliptic theory involves a Hermitian pairing which is a mild modification of intersection pairing. Probabilistic considerations play an imp ortant role, either as a motivation of some constructions,or in the proofs themselves

Title:Complex Kleinian Groups [electronic resource]

Publisher:Basel : Springer Basel : Imprint: Birkhuser
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This monograph lays down the foundations of the theory of complex Kleinian groups, a newborn area of mathematics whose origin can be traced back to the work of Riemann, Poincar, Picard and many others. Kleinian groupsare, classically, discrete groups of conformal automorphisms of the Riemann sphere, and these can themselves be regarded as groups of holomorphic automorphisms of the complex projective line CP1. When we go into higher dimensions,there is a dichotomy: Should we look at conformal automorp hisms of the n-sphere? or should we look at holomorphic automorphisms of higher dimensional complex projective spaces? These two theories differ in higher dimensions. In thefirst case we are talking about groups of isometries of real hyperbolic spaces, an area of mathematics with a long-standing tradition in the second, about an area of mathematics that is still in its infancy, and this is the focus ofstudy in this monograph. It brings together several important areas of mathematics, e.g. classical Kleini an group actions, complex hyperbolic geometry, crystallographic groups and the uniformization problem for complex manifolds

Note:Lie Groups: Structures, Actions, and Representations, In Honor of Joseph A. Wolf on the Occasion of his 75th Birthday consists of invited expository and research articles on new developments arising from Wolf's profoundcontributions to mathematics. D ue to Professor Wolfs broad interests, outstanding mathematicians and scholars in a wide spectrum of mathematical fields contributed to the volume. Algebraic, geometric, and analytic methods areemployed. More precisely, finite groups and classical finite dimensional, as well as infinite-dimensional Lie groups, and algebras play a role. Actions on classical symmetric spaces, and on abstract homogeneous and representationspaces are discussed. Contributions in the area of representation theory involve numero us viewpoints, including that of algebraic groups and various analytic aspects of harmonic analysis. Contributors D. Akhiezer T.

Note:Research on polyhedral manifolds often points to unexpected connections between very distinct aspects of Mathematics and Physics. In particular triangulated manifolds play quite a distinguished role in such settings as Riemannmoduli space theory, str ings and quantum gravity, topological quantum field theory, condensed matter physics, and critical phenomena. Not only do they provide a natural discrete analogue to the smooth manifolds on which physicaltheories are typically formulated, but their appear ance is rather often a consequence of an underlying structure which naturally calls into play non-trivial aspects of representation theory, of complex analysis and topology in a waywhich makes manifest the basic geometric structures of the physical intera ctions involved. Yet, in most of the existing literature, triangulated manifolds are still merely viewed as a convenient discretization of a given physicaltheory to make it more amenable for numerical treatment. The motivation for these lectures notes is thus to provide an approachable introduction to this topic, emphasizing the conceptual aspects, and probing, through a set of casesstudies, the connection between triangulated manifolds and quantum physics to the deepest. This volume addresses applied m athematicians and theoretical physicists working in the field of quantum geometry and its applications.

Title:Complex MongeAmpre Equations and Geodesics in the Space of Khler Metrics [electronic resource]
Author(s): Vincent Guedj
Date:2012
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The purpose of these lecture notes is to provide an introduction to the theory of complex MongeAmpre operators (definition, regularity issues, geometric properties of solutions, approximation) on compact Khler manifolds(with or without boundary). The se operators are of central use in several fundamental problems of complex differential geometry (KhlerEinstein equation, uniqueness of constant scalar curvature metrics), complex analysis anddynamics. The topics covered include, the Dirichlet problem (af ter BedfordTaylor), MongeAmpre foliations and laminated currents, polynomial hulls and Perron envelopes with no analytic structure, a self-contained presentation ofKrylov regularity results, a modernized proof of the CalabiYau theorem (after Yau and Kolod ziej), an introduction to infinite dimensional riemannian geometry, geometric structures on spaces of Khler metrics (after Mabuchi, Semmesand Donaldson), generalizations of the regularity theory of CaffarelliKohnNirenbergSpruck (after Guan, Chen and Block i) and Bergman approximation of geodesics (after PhongSturm and Berndtsson). Each chapter can be readindependently and is based on a series of lectures byR. Berman, Z. Blocki, S. Boucksom, F. Delarue, R. Dujardin, B. Kolev and A. Zeriahi, delivered to non -experts. The book is thus addressed to any mathematician with some interest inone of the following fields, complex differential geometry, complex analysis, complex dynamics, fully non-linear PDE's and stochastic analysis

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: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.

Title:An Introduction to Riemann Surfaces [electronic resource]

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This textbook presents a unified approach to compact and noncompact Riemann surfaces from the point of view of the L -method, a powerful technique used in the theory of several complex variables. The work features a simpleconstruction of a strictly s ubharmonic exhaustion function and a related construction of a positive-curvature Hermitian metric in a holomorphic line bundle, topics which serve as starting points for proofs of standard results such asthe Mittag-Leffler, Weierstrass, and Runge theorem s the RiemannRoch theorem the Serre duality and Hodge decomposition theorems and the uniformization theorem. The book also contains treatments of other facts concerning theholomorphic, smooth, and topological structure of a Riemann surface, such as the bi holomorphic classification of Riemann surfaces, the embedding theorems, the integrability of almost complex structures, the Schnflies theorem (and theJordan curve theorem), and the existence of smooth structures on second countable surfaces. Although some previous experience with complex analysis, Hilbert space theory, and analysis on manifolds would be helpful, the onlyprerequisite for this book is a working knowledge of point-set topology and elementary measure theory. The work includes numerous exercis esmany of which lead to further development of the theoryand presents (with proofs)streamlined treatments of background topics from analysis and topology on manifolds in easily-accessible reference chapters, making it ideal for a one- or two-semester grad uate course

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
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

Date:2011
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This self-contained treatment of Morse theory focuses on applications and is intended for a graduate course on differential or algebraic topology. The book is divided into three conceptually distinct parts. The first part containsthe foundations of M orse theory. The second part consists of applications of Morse theory over the reals, while the last part describes the basics and some applications of complex Morse theory, a.k.a. Picard-Lefschetz theory. Thisis the first textbook to include topics such as Morse-Smale flows, Floer homology, min-max theory, moment maps and equivariant cohomology, and complex Morse theory. The exposition is enhanced with examples, problems, and illustrations,and will be of interest to graduate students as well as research ers. The reader is expected to have some familiarity with cohomology theory and with the differential and integral calculus on smooth manifolds. Some features of thesecond edition include added applications, such as Morse theory and the curvature of knot s, the cohomology of the moduli space of planar polygons, and the Duistermaat-Heckman formula. The second edition also includes a new chapter onMorse-Smale flows and Whitney stratifications, many new exercises, and various corrections from the first editi on

Title:Singularities of integrals [electronic resource] : Homology, hyperfunctions and microlocal analysis
Author(s): Frdric Pham
Date:2011
Publisher:London : Springer London
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Bringing together two fundamental texts from Frdric Phams research on singular integrals, the first part of this book focuses on topological and geometrical aspects while the second explains the analytic approach. Usingnotions developed by J. Leray i n the calculus of residues in several variables and R. Thoms isotopy theorems, Frdric Phams foundational study of the singularities of integrals lies at the interface between analysis andalgebraic geometry, culminating in the Picard-Lefschetz formulae. Th ese mathematical structures, enriched by the work of Nilsson, are then approached using methods from the theory of differential equations and generalized from thepoint of view of hyperfunction theory and microlocal analysis. Providing a must-have introduc tion to the singularities of integrals, a number of supplementary references also offer a convenient guide to the subjects covered. Thisbook will appeal to both mathematicians and physicists with an interest in the area of singularities of integrals. Frdr ic Pham, now retired, was Professor at the University of Nice. He has published several educational and researchtexts. His recent work concerns semi-classical analysis and resurgent functions

Title:Holomorphic Function Theory in Several Variables [electronic resource] : An Introduction
Author(s): Christine Laurent-Thibaut
Date:2011
Publisher:London : Springer London
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book provides an introduction to complex analysis in several variables. The viewpoint of integral representation theory together with Grauert's bumping method offers a natural extension of single variable techniques toseveral variables analysis and leads rapidly to important global results. Applications focus on global extension problems for CR functions, such as the Hartogs-Bochner phenomenon and removable singularities for CR functions. Threeappendices on differential manifolds, sheaf theory a nd functional analysis make the book self-contained. Each chapter begins with a detailed abstract, clearly demonstrating the structure and relations of following chapters. Newconcepts are clearly defined and theorems and propositions are proved in detail. Historical notes are also provided at the end of each chapter. Clear and succinct, this book will appeal to post-graduate students, young researchersseeking an introduction to holomorphic function theory in several variables and lecturers seeking a conci se book on the subject

Title:The Heat Kernel Lefschetz Fixed Point Formula for the Spin-c Dirac Operator [electronic resource]
Author(s): J. J Duistermaat
Date:2011
Publisher:Boston, MA : Birkhuser Boston
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Interest in the spin-c Dirac operator originally came about from the study of complex analytic manifolds, where in the non-Khler casethe Dolbeault operator is no longer suitable for getting local formulas for theRiemannRoch number or the holomorphic Lefschetz number. However, every symplectic manifold (phase space in classical mechanics) also carries an almost complex structure and hence a corresponding spin-c Dirac operator. Using the heatkernels theory of Berline, Getzler, and Vergne,this workrevis its some fundamental concepts of the theory, and presents the application to symplectic geometry. J.J. Duistermaat was well known for his beautiful and conciseexpositions of seemingly familiar concepts, and this classic studyis certainly no exception. Rep rinted as it was originally published,this workis as an affordable textthat will be of interest to a range of researchers ingeometric analysis and mathematical physics. Overall this is a carefully written, highly readable book on a very beautiful subject. Mathematical Reviews The book of J.J. Duistermaat is a nice introduction to analysis related[tothe]spin-c Dirac operator. ... The book is almost self contained, [is] readable, and will be useful for anybody who is interested in the topic.

Title:Shapes and Diffeomorphisms [electronic resource]
Author(s): Laurent Younes
Date:2010
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Shapes are complex objects, which are difficult to apprehend as mathematical entities, in ways that can also be amenable to computerized analysis and interpretation. This volume provides the background that is required for thispurpose, including diff erent approaches that can be used to model shapes, and algorithms that are available to analyze them. It explores, in particular, the interesting connections between shapes and the objects that naturally act onthem, diffeomorphisms. The book is, as far as possible, self-contained, with an appendix that describes a series of classical topics in mathematics (Hilbert spaces, differential equations, Riemannian manifolds) and sections thatrepresent the state of the art in the analysis of shapes and their defor mations. A direct application of what is presented in the book is a branch of the computerized analysis of medical images, called computational anatomy

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Operational Spacetime: Interactions and Particles provides readers with a basic understanding of the mutual conditioning of spacetime and interactions and matter. The spacetime manifold will be looked at to be a reservoir for theparametrization of op eration Lie groups or subgroup classes of Lie groups. With basic operation groups or Lie algebras, all physical structures can be interpreted in terms of corresponding realizations or representations. Physicalproperties are related eigenvalues or invarian ts. As an explicit example, an operational spacetime is proposed, called electroweak spacetime, parametrizing the classes of the internal hypercharge-isospin group in the general lineargroup in two complex dimensions, i.e., the Lorentz cover group, extend ed by the causal (dilation) and phase group. Its representations and invariants will be investigated with the aim to connect them, qualitatively and numerically,with the properties of interactions and particles as arising in the representations of its tan gent Minkowski spaces.

Note:This second edition, divided into fourteen chapters, presents a comprehensive treatment of contact and symplectic manifolds from the Riemannian point of view. The monograph examines the basic ideas in detail and provides manyillustrative examples for the reader. Riemannian Geometry of Contact and Symplectic Manifolds, Second Edition provides new material in most chapters, but a particular emphasis remains on contact manifolds. New principal topics includea complex geodesic flow and the accompanying g eometry of the projectivized holomorphic tangent bundle and a complex version of the special directions discussed in Chapter 11 for the real case. Both of these topics make use of tienneGhys's attractive notion of a holomorphic Anosov flow. Researchers, m athematicians, and graduate students in contact and symplectic manifold theory and in Riemannian geometry will benefit from this work. A basic course in Riemanniangeometry is a prerequisite. Reviews from the First Edition: The book . . . can be used eithe r as an introduction to the subject or as a reference for students and researchers . . . [it] gives a clear and complete account of the mainideas . . . and studies a vast amount of related subjects such as integral sub-manifolds, symplectic structure of t angent bundles, curvature of contact metric manifolds and curvature functionals on spaces of associated metrics.Mathematical Reviews this is a pleasant and useful book and all geometers will profit [from] reading it.

Title:Cyclic Coverings, Calabi-Yau Manifolds and Complex Multiplication [electronic resource]
Author(s): Christian Rohde
Date:2009
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The main goal of this book is the construction of families of Calabi-Yau 3-manifolds with dense sets of complex multiplication fibers. The new families are determined by combining and generalizing two methods. Firstly, the methodof E. Viehweg and K. Zuo, who have constructed a deformation of the Fermat quintic with a dense set of CM fibers by a tower of cyclic coverings. Using this method, new families of K3 surfaces with dense sets of CM fibers andinvolutions are obtained. Secondly, the construction method of the Borcea-Voisin mirror family, which in the case of the author's examples yields families of Calabi-Yau 3-manifolds with dense sets of CM fibers, is also utilized.Moreover fibers with complex multiplication of these new families are also dete rmined. This book was written for young mathematicians, physicists and also for experts who are interested in complex multiplication and varieties withcomplex multiplication. The reader is introduced to generic Mumford-Tate groups and Shimura data, which are among the main tools used here. The generic Mumford-Tate groups of families of cyclic covers of the projective line arecomputed for a broad range of examples

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The second volume of this introduction into analysis deals with the integration theory of functions of one variable, the multidimensional differential calculus and the theory of curves and line integrals. The modern and cleardevelopment that started in Volume I (3-7643-7153-6) continues. In this way a sustainable basis will be created which allows to deal with interesting applications that sometimes go considerably beyond the material that is representedin traditional textbooks. This applies, for ins tance, to the exploration of Nemytskii operators which enable a transparent introduction into the calculus of variations and the derivation of the Euler-Lagrange equations. Another exampleis the presentation of the local theory of submanifolds of Rn

Note:In 1901, Karl Pearson invented Principal Component Analysis (PCA). Since then, PCA serves as a prototype for many other tools of data analysis, visualization and dimension reduction: Independent Component Analysis (ICA),Multidimensional Scaling (MDS) , Nonlinear PCA (NLPCA), Self Organizing Maps (SOM), etc. The book starts with the quote of the classical Pearson definition of PCA and includes reviews of various methods: NLPCA, ICA, MDS, embedding andclustering algorithms, principal manifolds and SOM. New approaches to NLPCA, principal manifolds, branching principal components and topology preserving mappings are described as well. Presentation of algorithms is supplemented by casestudies, from engineering to astronomy, but mostly of biological data: a nalysis of microarray and metabolite data. The volume ends with a tutorial PCA and K-means decipher genome. The book is meant to be useful for practitioners inapplied data analysis in life sciences, engineering, physics and chemistry it will also be valua ble to PhD students and researchers in computer sciences, applied mathematics and statistics

Title:Isomonodromic Deformations and Frobenius Manifolds [electronic resource] : An Introduction
Author(s): Claude Sabbah
Date:2008
Publisher:London : Springer London
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The notion of a Frobenius structure on a complex analytic manifold appeared at the end of the seventies in the theory of singularities of holomorphic functions. Motivated by physical considerations, further development of thetheory has opened new per spectives on, and revealed new links between, many apparently unrelated areas of mathematics and physics. Based on a series of graduate lectures, this book provides an introduction to algebraic geometricmethods in the theory of complex linear differential equations. Starting from basic notions in complex algebraic geometry, it develops some of the classical problems of linear differential equations and ends with applications to recentresearch questions related to mirror symmetry. The fundamental tool used within the book is that of a vector bundle with connection. There is a detailed analysis of the singularities of such objects and of their deformations, andcoverage of the techniques used in the resolution of the Riemann-Hilbert problem and Birkhoffs pro blem. An approach to Frobenius manifolds using isomonodromic deformations of linear differential equations is also developed. Aimed atgraduate students and researchers, the book assumes some familiarity with basic complex algebraic geometry

Title:Labyrinth of Thought [electronic resource] : A History of Set Theory and Its Role in Modern Mathematics
Author(s): Jos Ferreirs
Date:2007
Edition:Second revised edition
Publisher:Basel : Birkhuser Basel
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Labyrinth of Thought discusses the emergence and development of set theory and the set-theoretic approach to mathematics during the period 1850-1940. Rather than focusing on the pivotal figure of Georg Cantor, it analyzes hiswork and the emergence of transfinite set theory within the broader context of the rise of modern mathematics. The text has a tripartite structure. Part 1, The Emergence of Sets within Mathematics, surveys the initial motivations for amathematical notion of a set within several b ranches of the discipline (geometry, algebra, algebraic number theory, real and complex analysis), emphasizing the role played by Riemann in fostering acceptance of the set-theoreticapproach. In Part 2, Entering the Labyrinth, attention turns to the earli est theories of sets, their evolution, and their reception by the mathematical community prominent are the epoch-making contributions of Cantor and Dedekind, andthe complex interactions between them. Part 3, In Search of an Axiom System, studies the four- decade period from the discovery of set-theoretic paradoxes to Gdels independence results, an era during which set theory graduallybecame assimilated into mainstream mathematics particular attention is given to the interactions between axiomatic set theor y and modern systems of formal logic, especially the interplay between set theory and type theory. A newEpilogue for this second edition offers further reflections on the foundations of set theory, including the dichotomy conception and the well-known ite rative conception. The author paints on a grand scale. He sees clearly, and hesees whole. The result is a spacious canvas full of intriguing scenes and portraits from the history of set theory, seamlessly juxtaposed to form a fascinating and accurate pict ure of a vast area of modern mathematics. It is amust-have book for anyone who wishes to gain a balanced picture of this history. It is written in clear and elegant language for the learner, w

Title:Holomorphic Morse Inequalities and Bergman Kernels [electronic resource]
Author(s): Xiaonan Ma
George Marinescu
Date:2007
Publisher:Basel : Birkhuser Basel
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book gives for the first time a self-contained and unified approach to holomorphic Morse inequalities and the asymptotic expansion of the Bergman kernel on manifolds by using the heat kernel, and presents also variousapplications. The main analy tic tool is the analytic localization technique in local index theory developed by Bismut-Lebeau. The book includes the most recent results in the field and therefore opens perspectives on several activeareas of research in complex, Khler and symplectic g eometry. A large number of applications are included, e.g., an analytic proof of the Kodaira embedding theorem, a solution of the Grauert-Riemenschneider and Shiffman conjectures, acompactification of complete Khler manifolds of pinched negative curvature , the Berezin-Toeplitz quantization, weak Lefschetz theorems, and the asymptotics of the Ray-Singer analytic torsion

Title:Lectures on the Automorphism Groups of Kobayashi-Hyperbolic Manifolds [electronic resource]
Author(s): Alexander Isaev
Date:2007
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Kobayashi-hyperbolic manifolds are an object of active research in complex geometry. In this monograph the author presents a coherent exposition of recent results on complete characterization of Kobayashi-hyperbolic manifolds withhigh-dimensional gro ups of holomorphic automorphisms. These classification results can be viewed as complex-geometric analogues of those known for Riemannian manifolds with high-dimensional isotropy groups, that were extensivelystudied in the 1950s-70s. The common feature of the Kobayashi-hyperbolic and Riemannian cases is the properness of the actions of the holomorphic automorphism group and the isometry group on respective manifolds

Title:The Monodromy Group [electronic resource]
Author(s): Henryk odek
Date:2006
Publisher:Basel : Birkhuser Basel
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:In singularity theory and algebraic geometry the monodromy group is embodied in the Picard-Lefschetz formula and the Picard-Fuchs equations. It has applications in the weakened 16th Hilbert problem and in mixed Hodge structures.In the theory of syste ms of linear differential equations one has the Riemann-Hilbert problem, the Stokes phenomena and the hypergeometric functions with their multidimensional generalizations. In the theory of homomorphic foliationsthere appear the Ecalle-Voronin-Martinet-Ram is moduli. On the other hand, there is a deep connection of monodromy theory with Galois theory of differential equations and algebraic functions. All this is presented in this book,underlining the unifying role of the monodromy group. The material is add ressed to a wide audience, ranging from specialists in the theory of ordinary differential equations to algebraic geometers. The book contains a lot of resultswhich are usually spread in many sources. Readers can quickly get introduced to modern and vital mathematical theories, such as singularity theory, analytic theory of ordinary differential equations, holomorphic foliations, Galoistheory, and parts of algebraic geometry, without searching in vast literature

Title:On the Topology of Isolated Singularities in Analytic Spaces [electronic resource]
Author(s): Jos Seade
Date:2006
Publisher:Basel : Birkhuser Basel
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The aim of this book is to give an overview of selected topics on the topology of real and complex isolated singularities, with emphasis on its relations to other branches of geometry and topology. The first chapters are mostlydevoted to complex sing ularities and a myriad of results spread in a vast literature, which are presented here in a unified way, accessible to non-specialists. Among the topics are the fibration theorems of Milnor the relation with3-dimensional Lie groups exotic spheres spin st ructures and 3-manifold invariants the geometry of quadrics and Arnold's theorem which states that the complex projective plane modulo conjugation is the 4-sphere. The second part ofthe book studies pioneer work about real analytic singularities which ari se from the topological and geometric study of holomorphic vector fields and foliations. In the low dimensional case these turn out to be related to fibred linksin the 3-sphere defined by meromorphic functions. This provides new methods for constructing m anifolds equipped with a rich geometry. The book is largely self-contained and serves a wide audience of graduate students, mathematiciansand researchers interested in geometry and topology
