Novikov Conjectures, Index Theorems, and Rigidity: Volume 1: by Steven C. Ferry,Andrew Ranicki,Jonathan M. Rosenberg

By Steven C. Ferry,Andrew Ranicki,Jonathan M. Rosenberg

The Novikov Conjecture is the only most crucial unsolved challenge within the topology of high-dimensional non-simply attached manifolds. those volumes are the outgrowth of a convention held on the Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach (Germany) in September 1993, with reference to 'Novikov Conjectures, Index Theorems and Rigidity'. they're meant to offer a picture of the prestige of labor at the Novikov Conjecture and similar themes from many issues of view: geometric topology, homotopy conception, algebra, geometry and research. quantity 1 includes: • a close ancient survey and bibliography of the Novikov Conjecture and of similar next advancements, together with an annotated reprint (both within the unique Russian and in English translation) of Novikov's unique 1970 assertion of his conjecture • An annotated challenge record • The texts of numerous vital unpublished vintage papers via Milnor, Browder, and Kasparov • Research/survey papers at the Novikov Conjecture through Ferry/Weinberger, Gromov, Mishchenko, Quinn, Ranicki, and Rosenberg.

Finsler Geometry: An Approach via Randers Spaces

"Finsler Geometry: An technique through Randers areas" solely bargains with a different classification 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 common Relativity concept and feature been utilized in lots of components of the usual sciences.

Mathematical Concepts

The most purpose of this publication is to explain and advance the conceptual, structural and summary taking into consideration arithmetic. particular mathematical buildings are used to demonstrate the conceptual process; supplying a deeper perception into mutual relationships and summary universal positive factors. those rules are rigorously influenced, defined and illustrated by way of examples in order that the various extra technical proofs could be passed over.

Modern General Topology (Bibliotheca Mathematica)

Bibliotheca Mathematica: a sequence of Monographs on natural and utilized arithmetic, quantity VII: glossy normal Topology makes a speciality of the tactics, operations, rules, and ways hired in natural and utilized arithmetic, together with areas, cardinal and ordinal numbers, and mappings. The ebook first elaborates on set, cardinal and ordinal numbers, easy techniques in topological areas, and numerous topological areas.

Fractal Functions, Fractal Surfaces, and Wavelets

Fractal capabilities, Fractal Surfaces, and Wavelets, moment variation, is the 1st systematic exposition of the speculation of neighborhood iterated functionality structures, neighborhood fractal capabilities and fractal surfaces, and their connections to wavelets and wavelet units. The booklet relies on Massopust’s paintings on and contributions to the idea of fractal interpolation, and the writer makes use of a few tools—including research, topology, algebra, and likelihood theory—to introduce readers to this intriguing topic.
