<p>The theory of characteristic classes provides a meeting ground for the various disciplines of differential topology, differential and algebraic geometry, cohomology, and fiber bundle theory. As such, it is a fundamental and an essential tool ...eBook
by Timothy C. Burness & Michael Giudici
<p>A classical theorem of Jordan states that every finite transitive permutation group contains a derangement. This existence result has interesting and unexpected applications in many areas of mathematics, including graph theory, number theory ...eBook
by Nick Gurski
<p>Dimension three is an important test-bed for hypotheses in higher category theory and occupies something of a unique position in the categorical landscape. At the heart of matters is the coherence theorem, of which this book provides a ...eBook
by Izu Vaisman
<p>This monograph explores the cohomological theory of manifolds with various sheaves and its application to differential geometry. Based on lectures given by author Izu Vaisman at Romania's University of Iasi, the treatment is suitable for ...eBook

by Alastair Darby, Jelena Grbic & Zhi Lü;Jie Wu
<p>This volume consists of introductory lectures on the topics in the new and rapidly developing area of toric homotopy theory, and its applications to the current research in configuration spaces and braids, as well as to more applicable ...eBook
by Gersten, S. M.
<p>Group theory and topology are closely related. The region of their interaction, combining the logical clarity of algebra with the depths of geometric intuition, is the subject of <i>Combinatorial Group Theory and Topology</i>. The work ...eBook
by Bruno Benedetti, Emanuele Delucchi & Luca Moci
<p>Combinatorics plays a prominent role in contemporary mathematics, due to the vibrant development it has experienced in the last two decades and its many interactions with other subjects.</p> <p>This book arises from the INdAM conference ...eBook
by Professor R. M. Green
<p>Minuscule representations occur in a variety of contexts in mathematics and physics. They are typically much easier to understand than representations in general, which means they give rise to relatively easy constructions of algebraic ...eBook
by Penner, R. C.
<p>Measured geodesic laminations are a natural generalization of simple closed curves in surfaces, and they play a decisive role in various developments in two-and three-dimensional topology, geometry, and dynamical systems. This book presents aeBook
by Louis Nel
<p>This book presents a detailed, self-contained theory of continuous mappings. It is mainly addressed to students who have already studied these mappings in the setting of metric spaces, as well as multidimensional differential calculus. The ...eBook

by Raymond O. Wells, Jr.
<p>Differential and complex geometry are two central areas of mathematics with a long and intertwined history. This book, the first to provide a unified historical perspective of both subjects, explores their origins and developments from the ...eBook
by Raoul Bott & Loring W. Tu
<p>Developed from a first-year graduate course in algebraic topology, this text is an informal introduction to some of the main ideas of contemporary homotopy and cohomology theory. The materials are structured around four core areas: de Rham ...eBook
Bundles, Connections, Metrics and Curvature
by Clifford Henry Taubes
<p>Bundles, connections, metrics and curvature are the 'lingua franca' of modern differential geometry and theoretical physics. This book will supply a graduate student in mathematics or theoretical physics with the fundamentals of these ...eBook
