Books in category Mathematics – Topology

Bounded and Compact Integral Operators
Audience: The book is aimed at a rather wide audience, ranging from researchers in functional and harmonic analysis to experts in applied mathematics and prospective students.

In this book we want to explore aspects of coherence in homological algebra, that already appear in the classical situation of abelian groups or abelian categories.

Computers, Rigidity, and Moduli
This book is the first to present a new area of mathematical research that combines topology, geometry, and logic.

Groups of Circle Diffeomorphisms
As the group of circle diffeomorphisms is an important subject in modern mathematics, this book will be of interest to those doing research in group theory, dynamical systems, low dimensional geometry and topology, and foliation theory.

This book presents modern vector analysis and carefully describes the classical notation and understanding of the theory.

Since that time symbolic dynamics has been used in ergodic theory, topological dynamics, hyperbolic dynamics, information theory and complex dynamics. Symbolic dynamical systems with a finite memory are stud ied in this book.

This book introduces the reader to linear functional analysis and to related parts of infinitedimensional Banach space theory.

Geometry with an Introduction to Cosmic Topology
Chapters 27 contain the core mathematical content of the text, following the ErlangenProgram, which develops geometry in terms of a space and a group of transformations on that space.

By using only the basic techniques acquired in most undergraduate courses in mathematics, Dr. Kirwan introduces the theory, observes the algebraic and topological properties of complex algebraic curves, and shows how they are related to …

Then come branched covering spaces, the Alexander polynomial, signature theorems, the work of Casson and Gordon on slice knots, and a chapter on knots and algebraic singularities.The book concludes with an appendix about generalized …
