By J. F. Adams,G. C. Shepherd

This set of notes, for graduate scholars who're focusing on algebraic topology, adopts a singular method of the educating of the topic. It starts with a survey of the main valuable components for examine, with innovations concerning the top written bills of every subject. simply because many of the resources are fairly inaccessible to scholars, the second one a part of the booklet contains a suite of a few of those vintage expositions, from journals, lecture notes, theses and convention lawsuits. they're hooked up by way of brief explanatory passages written by means of Professor Adams, whose personal contributions to this department of arithmetic are represented within the reprinted articles.

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

Effectively, this booklet bargains the main complete survey to this point of the idea of semiparallel submanifolds. It starts off with the required historical past fabric, detailing symmetric and semisymmetric Riemannian manifolds, tender manifolds in area kinds, and parallel submanifolds. The e-book then introduces semiparallel submanifolds and provides a few characterizations for his or her category in addition to numerous subclasses.

Topology (UNITEXT)

This is often an introductory textbook on basic and algebraic topology, aimed toward someone with a simple wisdom of calculus and linear algebra. It offers complete proofs and comprises many examples and routines. The coated issues include: set conception and cardinal mathematics; axiom of selection and Zorn's lemma; topological areas and non-stop services; 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 unfastened fabricated from teams; and easy class concept.

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

This booklet is dedicated to check of the main suitable methods to the examine of classical box theories of the 1st order, say k-symplectic and k-cosymplectic geometry. This procedure is additionally in comparison with others like multisymplectic formalism. it is going to be very beneficial 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 tools in computing device Aided Geometric layout II covers the complaints of the 1991 overseas convention on Curves, Surfaces, CAGD, and photograph Processing, held at Biri, Norway. This e-book comprises forty eight chapters that come with the subjects of blossoming, cyclides, info becoming and interpolation, and discovering intersections of curves and surfaces.
