Metric Rigidity Theorems on Hermitian Locally Symmetric by Ngaiming Mok

By Ngaiming Mok

This monograph stories the matter of characterizing canonical metrics on Hermitian in the neighborhood symmetric manifolds X of non-compact/compact varieties when it comes to curvature stipulations. The proofs of those metric pressure theorems are utilized to the research of holomorphic mappings among manifolds X of an identical kind. in addition, a twin model of the generalized Frankel Conjecture on characterizing compact Kähler manifolds also are formulated.

Topology and Physics: Proceedings of the Nankai by Kevin Lin, Zhenghan Wang, Weiping Zhang

By Kevin Lin, Zhenghan Wang, Weiping Zhang

This distinct quantity, caused by a convention on the Chern Institute of arithmetic devoted to the reminiscence of Xiao-Song Lin, provides a wide connection among topology and physics as exemplified by way of the connection among low-dimensional topology and quantum box conception. the amount contains works on photograph (2+1) - TQFTs and their functions to quantum computing, categorification and Khovanov homology, Gromov - Witten style invariants, twisted Alexander polynomials, Faddeev knots, generalized Ricci move, Calabi - Yau difficulties for CR manifolds, Milnor's conjecture on quantity of simplexes, Heegaard genera of 3-manifolds, and the (A,B) - slice challenge. it is usually 5 unpublished papers of Xiao-Song Lin and diverse speeches regarding the memorial convention.

Hyperbolic Geometry and Applications in Quantum Chaos and by Dr Jens Bolte, Professor Frank Steiner

By Dr Jens Bolte, Professor Frank Steiner

Hyperbolic geometry is a classical topic in natural arithmetic which has intriguing purposes in theoretical physics. during this e-book major specialists introduce hyperbolic geometry and Maass waveforms and talk about purposes in quantum chaos and cosmology. The booklet starts off with an introductory bankruptcy detailing the geometry of hyperbolic surfaces and contains quite a few labored examples and workouts to offer the reader an exceptional beginning for the remainder of the booklet. In later chapters the classical model of Selberg's hint formulation is derived intimately and move operators are built as instruments within the spectral thought of Laplace-Beltrami operators on modular surfaces. The computation of Maass waveforms and linked eigenvalues of the hyperbolic Laplacian on hyperbolic manifolds also are awarded in a finished approach. This ebook may be important to graduate scholars and younger researchers, in addition to for these skilled scientists who need a unique exposition of the topic.

Descriptive set theory by Yiannis N. Moschovakis

By Yiannis N. Moschovakis

Descriptive Set concept is the research of units in separable, entire metric areas that may be outlined (or constructed), and so could be anticipated to have distinctive houses no longer loved by way of arbitrary pointsets. This topic used to be began through the French analysts on the flip of the 20 th century, so much prominently Lebesgue, and, before everything, used to be involved basically with setting up regularity homes of Borel and Lebesgue measurable services, and analytic, coanalytic, and projective units. Its quick improvement got here to a halt within the past due Thirties, basically since it bumped opposed to difficulties that have been self sustaining of classical axiomatic set thought. the sphere turned very energetic back within the Sixties, with the advent of robust set-theoretic hypotheses and strategies from good judgment (especially recursion theory), which revolutionized it. This monograph develops Descriptive Set idea systematically, from its classical roots to the fashionable ``effective'' concept and the results of robust (especially determinacy) hypotheses. The publication emphasizes the principles of the topic, and it units the level for the dramatic effects (established because the Nineteen Eighties) bearing on huge cardinals and determinacy or permitting functions of Descriptive Set thought to classical arithmetic. The ebook contains all of the worthwhile historical past from (advanced) set idea, good judgment and recursion thought

Fractals for the Classroom: Strategic Activities Volume Two by Heinz-Otto Peitgen

By Heinz-Otto Peitgen

The comparable elements that stimulated the writing of our first quantity of strategic actions on fractals persisted to motivate the meeting of extra actions for this moment quantity. Fractals supply a surroundings in which scholars can take pleasure in hands-on stories that contain very important mathematical content material attached to a variety of actual and social phenomena. The remarkable image photographs, unforeseen geometric homes, and interesting numerical strategies supply exceptional chance for enthusiastic pupil inquiry. scholars feel the vigour found in the starting to be and hugely integrative self-discipline of fractal geom­ etry as they're brought to mathematical advancements that experience happened over the last 1/2 the 20 th century. Few branches of arithmetic and desktop technology supply this kind of contem­ porary portrayal of the wonderment to be had in cautious research, within the remarkable discussion among numeric and geometric strategies, and within the lively interplay among arithmetic and different disciplines. Fractals proceed to provide an unusual environment for lively educating and examine­ ing actions that spotlight upon basic mathematical suggestions, connections, problem-solving concepts, and plenty of different significant subject matters of effortless and complex arithmetic. It continues to be our wish that, via this moment quantity of strategic actions, readers will locate their delight in arithmetic heightened and their appreciation for the dynamics of the realm in­ creased. we'd like reviews with fractals to brighten up interest and to stretch the imagination.

Differential Topology (Practitioner Series) by Morris W. Hirsch

By Morris W. Hirsch

This article offers a radical wisdom of the fundamental topological principles valuable for learning differential manifolds. those issues comprise immersions and imbeddings, method ideas, and the Morse class of surfaces and their cobordism. the writer retains the mathematical must haves to a minimal; this and the emphasis at the geometric and intuitive facets of the topic make the publication an invaluable advent for the coed. there are lots of routines on many alternative degrees, starting from functional purposes of the theorems to major additional improvement of the idea.

The Extended Field of Operator Theory (Operator Theory: by Michael A. Dritschel

By Michael A. Dritschel

This quantity includes contributions originating from the overseas Workshop on Operator thought and Its purposes (IWOTA) held in Newcastle upon Tyne in July 2004. The articles expertly hide a wide diversity of fabric on the leading edge of practical research and its functions. subject matters contain scattering and time various platforms, pseudodifferential and singular operators, weighted composition operators and hyperinvariant subspaces, and interpolation and lifting difficulties on Hilbert and Krein areas.

Differential Forms in Algebraic Topology by Raoul Bott

By Raoul Bott

The tenet during this publication is to take advantage of differential varieties as an relief in exploring a number of the much less digestible facets of algebraic topology. Accord­ ingly, we circulate essentially within the realm of soft manifolds and use the de Rham concept as a prototype of all of cohomology. For functions to homotopy thought we additionally talk about when it comes to analogy cohomology with arbitrary coefficients. even supposing now we have in brain an viewers with past publicity to algebraic or differential topology, for the main half an exceptional wisdom of linear algebra, complicated calculus, and point-set topology may still suffice. a few acquaintance with manifolds, simplicial complexes, singular homology and cohomology, and homotopy teams is beneficial, yet not likely worthwhile. in the textual content itself now we have acknowledged with care the extra complicated effects which are wanted, in order that a mathematically mature reader who accepts those heritage fabrics on religion can be capable of learn the whole booklet with the minimum necessities. There are extra fabrics right here than should be quite coated in a one-semester direction. yes sections might be passed over before everything studying with­ out lack of continuity. we now have indicated those within the schematic diagram that follows. This ebook isn't meant to be foundational; quite, it is just intended to open many of the doorways to the ambitious edifice of recent algebraic topology. we provide it within the desire that such an off-the-cuff account of the topic at a semi-introductory point fills a spot within the literature.
