4-Manifolds (Oxford Graduate Texts in Mathematics) by Selman Akbulut

By Selman Akbulut

This publication offers the topology of tender 4-manifolds in an intuitive self-contained manner, constructed over a couple of years by way of Professor Akbulut. The textual content is geared toward graduate scholars and specializes in the instructing and studying of the topic, giving a right away method of buildings and theorems that are supplemented via workouts to assist the reader paintings during the info no longer coated within the proofs.

The booklet encompasses a hundred color illustrations to illustrate the information instead of delivering long-winded and in all probability doubtful reasons. Key effects were chosen that relate to the fabric mentioned and the writer has supplied examples of the way to examine them with the innovations constructed in prior chapters.

Finsler Geometry: An Approach via Randers Spaces

"Finsler Geometry: An technique through Randers areas" solely bargains with a distinct category of Finsler metrics -- Randers metrics, that are outlined because the sum of a Riemannian metric and a 1-form. Randers metrics derive from the examine on basic Relativity idea and feature been utilized in lots of components of the normal sciences.

Mathematical Concepts

The most goal of this e-book is to explain and boost the conceptual, structural and summary deliberating arithmetic. particular mathematical buildings are used to demonstrate the conceptual process; delivering a deeper perception into mutual relationships and summary universal beneficial properties. those rules are conscientiously inspired, defined and illustrated through examples in order that a few of the extra technical proofs will be passed over.
