Download E-books Surveys on Surgery Theory, Vol. 1 (Volume 1) PDF

Surgery thought, the root for the type conception of manifolds, is now approximately 40 years previous. there were a few notable accomplishments in that point, that have resulted in vastly different interactions with algebra, research, and geometry. staff in lots of of those components have usually lamented the shortcoming of a unmarried resource that surveys surgical procedure concept and its functions. certainly, nobody individual may possibly write the sort of survey.

The 60th birthday of C. T. C. Wall, one of many leaders of the founding new release of surgical procedure thought, supplied a chance to rectify the location and bring a accomplished e-book at the topic. specialists have written state of the art stories that may be of large curiosity to all these drawn to topology, not just graduate scholars and mathematicians, yet mathematical physicists as well.

Download E-books Algebraic Topology and Its Applications PDF

By Gunnar Carlsson (auth.), Gunnar E. Carlsson, Ralph L. Cohen, Wu-Chung Hsiang, John D. S. Jones (eds.)

In 1989-90 the Mathematical Sciences learn Institute performed a software on Algebraic Topology and its Applications. the most components of focus have been homotopy concept, K-theory, and purposes to geometric topology, gauge thought, and moduli areas. Workshops have been performed in those 3 components. This quantity comprises invited, expository articles at the subject matters studied in this software. They describe fresh advances and aspect to attainable new instructions. they need to turn out to be invaluable references for researchers in Algebraic Topology and similar fields, in addition to to graduate students.

Download E-books Metric Rigidity Theorems On Hermitian Locally Symmetric Manifolds (Series in Pure Mathematics) PDF

By Ngaiming Mok

This monograph experiences the matter of characterizing canonical metrics on Hermitian in the neighborhood symmetric manifolds X of non-compact/compact varieties when it comes to curvature stipulations. The proofs of those metric stress theorems are utilized to the examine of holomorphic mappings among manifolds X of an identical variety. furthermore, a twin model of the generalized Frankel Conjecture on characterizing compact Kähler manifolds also are formulated.

Download E-books Principles of Topology (Dover Books on Mathematics) PDF

By Fred H. Croom

Topology is a traditional, geometric, and intuitively attractive department of arithmetic that may be understood and preferred through scholars as they start their research of complicated mathematical subject matters. Designed for a one-semester advent to topology on the undergraduate and starting graduate degrees, this article is available to scholars accustomed to multivariable calculus. Rigorous yet now not summary, the therapy emphasizes the geometric nature of the topic and the purposes of topological rules to geometry and mathematical analysis.
Customary themes of point-set topology contain metric areas, normal topological areas, continuity, topological equivalence, foundation, subbasis, connectedness, compactness, separation houses, metrization, subspaces, product areas, and quotient areas. furthermore, the textual content introduces geometric, differential, and algebraic topology. each one bankruptcy comprises ancient notes to place very important advancements into their old framework. workouts of various levels of trouble shape a necessary a part of the text.

Download E-books Lectures on Cyclic Homology PDF

The e-book is a simple advent to the topic, divided into 3 components. the 1st, Chapters 1 and a couple of, is history fabric on precise and Hochschild homology for the start reader. In Chapters three, four, five 3 definitions of cyclic homology are thought of, its invariance lower than Morita equivalence, its relation to Lie algebra homology, and the Connes' B operator. The 3rd half, Chapters 6 and seven, relates cyclichomology to differential varieties and indicates how the Chern personality takes values in cyclic homology. integrated is the classical Hochschild-Kostant-Rosenberg theorem concerning differential types to Hochschild homology.

Download E-books Euler's Gem: The Polyhedron Formula and the Birth of Topology PDF

By David S. Richeson

Leonhard Euler's polyhedron formulation describes the constitution of many objects--from football balls and gems to Buckminster Fuller's structures and vast all-carbon molecules. but Euler's formulation is so basic it may be defined to a toddler. Euler's Gem tells the illuminating tale of this necessary mathematical idea.

From historic Greek geometry to state-of-the-art state-of-the-art learn, Euler's Gem celebrates the invention of Euler's loved polyhedron formulation and its far-reaching impression on topology, the examine of shapes. In 1750, Euler saw that any polyhedron composed of V vertices, E edges, and F faces satisfies the equation V-E+F=2. David Richeson tells how the Greeks ignored the formulation solely; how Descartes nearly chanced on it yet fell brief; how nineteenth-century mathematicians widened the formula's scope in ways in which Euler by no means predicted by means of adapting it to be used with doughnut shapes, tender surfaces, and better dimensional shapes; and the way twentieth-century mathematicians came upon that each form has its personal Euler's formulation. utilizing incredible examples and various illustrations, Richeson provides the formula's many based and unforeseen functions, akin to displaying why there's constantly a few windless spot on the earth, the way to degree the acreage of a tree farm through counting bushes, and the way many crayons are had to colour any map.

choked with a who is who of excellent mathematicians who puzzled, sophisticated, and contributed to a outstanding theorem's improvement, Euler's Gem will fascinate each arithmetic enthusiast.
