Topology of Surfaces, Knots, and Manifolds deals an intuition-based and example-driven method of the fundamental principles and difficulties regarding manifolds, really one- and two-dimensional manifolds. a mix of examples and routines leads the reader to expect basic definitions and theorems relating curves, surfaces, knots, and links--the gadgets of curiosity within the attractive set of mathematical rules often called "rubber sheet geometry." the result's a ebook that gives strong assurance of the maths underlying those themes.

The 2 elements of this sharply targeted publication, Hypergeometric and designated capabilities and Harmonic research on Semisimple Symmetric areas, are derived from lecture notes for the eu university of workforce idea, a discussion board offering high-level classes on contemporary advancements in crew idea. The authors offer scholars and researchers with an intensive and considerate assessment, elaborating at the subject with transparent statements of definitions and theorems and augmenting those withtime-saving examples.
Bundles, connections, metrics and curvature are the 'lingua franca' of contemporary differential geometry and theoretical physics. This booklet will provide a graduate pupil in arithmetic or theoretical physics with the basics of those gadgets. some of the instruments utilized in differential topology are brought and the elemental effects approximately differentiable manifolds, tender maps, differential varieties, vector fields, Lie teams, and Grassmanians are all offered the following.
This e-book makes a speciality of the undemanding yet crucial difficulties in Riemann-Finsler Geometry, which come with a repertoire of stress and comparability theorems, and an array of specific examples, illustrating many phenomena which admit in basic terms Finslerian interpretations. "This ebook deals the main smooth therapy of the subject …" EMS e-newsletter.
The sphere of geometric variational difficulties is fast-moving and influential. those difficulties engage with many different components of arithmetic and feature powerful relevance to the learn of integrable structures, mathematical physics and PDEs. The workshop 'Variational difficulties in Differential Geometry' held in 2009 on the collage of Leeds introduced jointly across the world revered researchers from many various components of the sector.
