The Algebraic Characterization of Geometric 4-Manifolds by J. A. Hillman

By J. A. Hillman

This e-book describes paintings, principally that of the writer, at the characterization of closed 4-manifolds when it comes to wide-spread invariants resembling Euler attribute, primary staff, and Stiefel–Whitney sessions. utilizing innovations from homological team thought, the idea of 3-manifolds and topological surgical procedure, infrasolvmanifolds are characterised as much as homeomorphism, and floor bundles are characterised as much as basic homotopy equivalence. Non-orientable circumstances also are thought of anywhere attainable, and within the ultimate bankruptcy the consequences received past are utilized to 2-knots and intricate analytic surfaces. This e-book is vital interpreting for an individual attracted to low-dimensional topology.

Finsler Geometry: An Approach via Randers Spaces

"Finsler Geometry: An process through Randers areas" solely bargains with a different 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 normal Relativity conception and feature been utilized in lots of parts of the normal sciences.

Mathematical Concepts

The most purpose of this publication is to explain and boost the conceptual, structural and summary taking into account arithmetic. particular mathematical constructions are used to demonstrate the conceptual procedure; delivering a deeper perception into mutual relationships and summary universal positive factors. those rules are conscientiously influenced, defined and illustrated via examples in order that some of the extra technical proofs should be passed over.

Modern General Topology (Bibliotheca Mathematica)

Bibliotheca Mathematica: a chain of Monographs on natural and utilized arithmetic, quantity VII: smooth basic Topology makes a speciality of the techniques, operations, rules, and methods hired in natural and utilized arithmetic, together with areas, cardinal and ordinal numbers, and mappings. The e-book first elaborates on set, cardinal and ordinal numbers, easy options in topological areas, and numerous topological areas.

Fractal Functions, Fractal Surfaces, and Wavelets

Fractal services, Fractal Surfaces, and Wavelets, moment version, is the 1st systematic exposition of the idea of neighborhood iterated functionality structures, neighborhood fractal services and fractal surfaces, and their connections to wavelets and wavelet units. The e-book is predicated 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 interesting topic.
