The Scalar-Tensor Theory of Gravitation (Cambridge by Yasunori Fujii,Kei-ichi Maeda

By Yasunori Fujii,Kei-ichi Maeda

The scalar-tensor concept of gravitation is among the hottest choices to Einstein's idea of gravitation. This ebook offers a transparent and concise advent to the theoretical rules and advancements, exploring scalar fields and putting them in context with a dialogue of Brans-Dicke idea. issues coated contain the cosmological consistent challenge, time variability of coupling constants, better dimensional space-time, branes and conformal adjustments. The authors emphasize the actual functions of the scalar-tensor concept and hence offer a pedagogical review of the topic, protecting extra mathematically unique sections for the appendices. This booklet is appropriate for graduate classes in cosmology, gravitation and relativity. it is going to additionally offer a helpful reference for researchers.

Homotopy Theory of Higher Categories: From Segal Categories by Carlos Simpson

By Carlos Simpson

The learn of upper different types is attracting starting to be curiosity for its many functions in topology, algebraic geometry, mathematical physics and class concept. during this hugely readable e-book, Carlos Simpson develops a whole set of homotopical algebra recommendations and proposes a operating thought of upper different types. beginning with a cohesive evaluate of the various assorted ways presently utilized by researchers, the writer proceeds with an in depth exposition of 1 of the main universal options: the development of a Cartesian Quillen version constitution for larger different types. The totally iterative development applies to enrichment over any Cartesian version classification, and yields version different types for weakly associative n-categories and Segal n-categories. A corollary is the development of upper functor different types which are compatible jointly to shape the (n+1)-category of n-categories. The method makes use of Tamsamani's definition in response to Segal's principles, iterated as in Pelissier's thesis utilizing sleek concepts because of Barwick, Bergner, Lurie and others.

Barsotti Symposium in Algebraic Geometry: Symposium by Valentino Cristante,William Messing

By Valentino Cristante,William Messing

Barsotti Symposium in Algebraic Geometry comprises papers resembling the lectures given on the 1991 memorial assembly held in Abano Terme in honor of Iacopo Barsotti. this article displays Barsotti’s major contributions within the field.

This booklet consists of 10 chapters and starts off with a evaluation of the facilities of three-d skylanin algebras. The succeeding chapters care for the theoretical elements of the Abelian kinds, Witt awareness of p-Adic Barsotti-Tate teams, and hypergeometric sequence and capabilities. those themes are by means of discussions of logarithmic areas and the estimates for and inequalities between A-numbers. The ultimate bankruptcy describes the moduli of Abelian kinds in optimistic characteristic.

Singularities in Geometry, Topology, Foliations and by José Luis Cisneros-Molina,Dũng Tráng Lê,Mutsuo Oka,Jawad

By José Luis Cisneros-Molina,Dũng Tráng Lê,Mutsuo Oka,Jawad Snoussi

This e-book good points cutting-edge examine on singularities in geometry, topology, foliations and dynamics and offers an summary of the present kingdom of singularity concept in those settings.

Singularity idea is on the crossroad of assorted branches of arithmetic and technology ordinarily. in recent times there were outstanding advancements, either within the concept itself and in its family members with different areas.

The contributions during this quantity originate from the “Workshop on Singularities in Geometry, Topology, Foliations and Dynamics”, held in Merida, Mexico, in December 2014, in social gathering of José Seade’s sixtieth Birthday.

It is meant for researchers and graduate scholars attracted to singularity conception and its impression on different fields.

Deformation Spaces: Perspectives on algebro-geometric moduli by Hossein Abbaspour,Matilde Marcolli,Thomas Tradler

By Hossein Abbaspour,Matilde Marcolli,Thomas Tradler

the 1st circumstances of deformation conception got via Kodaira and Spencer for complicated buildings and via Gerstenhaber for associative algebras. on account that then, deformation concept has been utilized as a great tool within the examine of many different mathematical constructions, or even this present day it performs an immense function in lots of advancements of recent mathematics.

This quantity collects a number of self-contained and peer-reviewed papers through specialists which current up to date learn subject matters in algebraic and motivic topology, quantum box conception, algebraic geometry, noncommutative geometry and the deformation thought of Poisson algebras. They originate from actions on the Max-Planck-Institute for arithmetic and the Hausdorff heart for arithmetic in Bonn.

Nonabelian Multiplicative Integration on Surfaces by Amnon Yekutieli

By Amnon Yekutieli

Nonabelian multiplicative integration on curves is a classical idea. This quantity is ready the 2-dimensional case, that's even more tricky. In our development, the setup is a Lie crossed module: there's a Lie crew H, including an motion on it via one other Lie team G. The multiplicative necessary is part of H, and it's the restrict of Riemann items. each one Riemann product consists of a fractal decomposition of the outside into kites (triangles with strings connecting them to the bottom point). there's a twisting of the integrand, that comes from a 1-dimensional multiplicative critical alongside the strings, with values within the crew G.

The major results of this paintings is the third-dimensional nonabelian Stokes theorem. This result's new; just a specific case of it was once anticipated (without evidence) in papers in mathematical physics. Our structures and proofs are of an easy nature. there are many illustrations to elucidate the geometric constructions.

Our quantity touches on the various important concerns (e.g., descent for nonabelian gerbes) in an strangely down-to-earth demeanour, regarding research, differential geometry, combinatorics and Lie idea — rather than the 2-categories and 2-functors that different authors prefer.
