By Susumu Ikeda,Motoko Kotani

This e-book is the 1st quantity of the SpringerBriefs within the arithmetic of fabrics and offers a accomplished consultant to the interplay of arithmetic with fabrics technological know-how. The anterior a part of the ebook describes a specific historical past of fabrics technological know-how in addition to the interplay among arithmetic and fabrics in historical past. The emergence of fabrics technology was once itself because of the an interdisciplinary move within the Fifties and Nineteen Sixties. fabrics technological know-how was once shaped by way of the combination of metallurgy, polymer technology, ceramics, sturdy nation physics, and similar disciplines. We think that such ancient heritage is helping readers to appreciate the significance of interdisciplinary interplay resembling mathematics–materials technological know-how collaboration. 

The heart a part of the e-book describes mathematical rules and techniques that may be utilized to fabrics difficulties and introduces a few examples of particular studies—for instance, computational homology utilized to structural research of glassy fabrics, stochastic versions for the formation strategy of fabrics, new geometric measures for finite carbon nanotube molecules, mathematical strategy predicting a molecular magnet, and community research of nanoporous fabrics. the main points of those works may be proven within the next volumes of this SpringerBriefs within the arithmetic of fabrics sequence by means of the person authors. 
The posterior portion of the publication offers how breakthroughs according to mathematics–materials technology collaborations can emerge. The authors' argument is supported via the reviews on the complex Institute for fabrics learn (AIMR), the place many researchers from a number of fields accumulated and tackled interdisciplinary research.

Semiparallel Submanifolds in Space Forms: Envelopes of Symmetric Orbits (Springer Monographs in Mathematics)

Without problems, this publication bargains the main complete survey so far of the speculation of semiparallel submanifolds. It starts off with the mandatory heritage fabric, detailing symmetric and semisymmetric Riemannian manifolds, soft manifolds in area types, and parallel submanifolds. The publication then introduces semiparallel submanifolds and provides a few characterizations for his or her classification in addition to numerous subclasses.

Topology (UNITEXT)

This can be an introductory textbook on basic and algebraic topology, geared toward somebody with a easy wisdom of calculus and linear algebra. It presents complete proofs and comprises many examples and workouts. The lined issues include: set thought and cardinal mathematics; axiom of selection and Zorn's lemma; topological areas and non-stop capabilities; connectedness and compactness; Alexandrov compactification; quotient topologies; countability and separation axioms; prebasis and Alexander's theorem; the Tychonoff theorem and paracompactness; whole metric areas and serve as areas; Baire areas; homotopy of maps; the elemental group; the van Kampen theorem; covering areas; Brouwer and Borsuk's theorems; unfastened teams and loose manufactured from teams; and easy classification idea.

Methods of Differential Geometry in Classical Field Theories:k-Symplectic and k-Cosymplectic Approaches

This ebook is dedicated to study of the main suitable techniques to the learn of classical box theories of the 1st order, say k-symplectic and k-cosymplectic geometry. This technique can be in comparison with others like multisymplectic formalism. it is going to be very worthy for researchers operating in classical box theories and graduate scholars attracted to constructing a systematic occupation within the topic.

Mathematical Methods in Computer Aided Geometric Design II: v. 2

Mathematical equipment in machine Aided Geometric layout II covers the complaints of the 1991 overseas convention on Curves, Surfaces, CAGD, and snapshot Processing, held at Biri, Norway. This e-book comprises forty eight chapters that come with the themes of blossoming, cyclides, information becoming and interpolation, and discovering intersections of curves and surfaces.
