    Based on writer Siavash Shahshahani's huge educating event, this quantity offers an intensive, rigorous direction at the thought of differentiable manifolds. aimed toward complicated undergraduates and graduate scholars in arithmetic, the treatment's must haves comprise a powerful heritage in undergraduate arithmetic, together with multivariable calculus, linear algebra, user-friendly summary algebra, and aspect set topology. greater than 2 hundred workouts supply scholars abundant chance to gauge their talents and achieve extra insights.
    The four-part therapy starts with a unmarried bankruptcy dedicated to the tensor algebra of linear areas and their mappings. half II brings in neighboring issues to discover integrating vector fields, Lie bracket, external by-product, and Lie spinoff. half III, concerning manifolds and vector bundles, develops the most physique of the direction. the ultimate bankruptcy presents a glimpse into geometric buildings via introducing connections on the tangent package deal as a device to implant the second one spinoff and the by-product of vector fields at the base manifold. proper old and philosophical asides increase the mathematical textual content, and important Appendixes supply supplementary material.

    The Hauptvermutung is the conjecture that any triangulations of a poly­ hedron are combinatorially identical. The conjecture used to be formulated on the flip of the century, and till its solution used to be a significant challenge of topology. first and foremost, it was once tested for low-dimensional polyhedra, and it could were anticipated that furt her improvement of high-dimensional topology might bring about a verification in all dimensions. even though, in 1961 Milnor built high-dimensional polyhedra with combinatorially inequivalent triangulations, disproving the Hauptvermutung generally. those polyhedra weren't manifolds, leaving open the Hauptvermu­ tung for manifolds. the advance of surgical procedure thought ended in the disproof of the high-dimensional manifold Hauptvermutung within the past due 1960's. regrettably, the broadcast list of the manifold Hauptvermutung has been incomplete, as used to be forcefully mentioned by way of Novikov in his lecture on the Browder sixtieth birthday convention held at Princeton in March 1994. This quantity brings jointly the unique 1967 papers of Casson and Sulli­ van, and the 1968/1972 'Princeton notes at the Hauptvermutung' of Armstrong, Rourke and Cooke, making this paintings bodily available. those papers comprise a number of different effects that have develop into a part of the folklore yet of which proofs have by no means been released. my very own contribution is meant to function an intro­ duction to the Hauptvermutung, and in addition to offer an account of a few newer advancements within the zone. In getting ready the unique papers for book, in simple terms minimum adjustments of punctuation and so forth.

    This is often the 1st monograph devoted to the systematic exposition of the entire number of themes concerning quantum cohomology. the topic first originated in theoretical physics (quantum string thought) and has persevered to boost widely during the last decade. The author's method of quantum cohomology is predicated at the idea of the Frobenius manifold. the 1st a part of the booklet is dedicated to this inspiration and its wide interconnections with algebraic formalism of operads, differential equations, perturbations, and geometry. within the moment a part of the booklet, the writer describes the development of quantum cohomology and experiences the algebraic geometry mechanisms enthusiastic about this development (intersection and deformation idea of Deligne-Artin and Mumford stacks).Yuri Manin is at present the director of the Max-Planck-Institut fur Mathematik in Bonn, Germany. He has authored and coauthored 10 monographs and nearly 2 hundred examine articles in algebraic geometry, quantity idea, mathematical physics, historical past of tradition, and psycholinguistics. Manin's books, corresponding to ""Cubic kinds: Algebra, Geometry, and Arithmetic"" (1974), ""A path in Mathematical Logic"" (1977), ""Gauge box idea and intricate Geometry"" (1988), ""Elementary debris: arithmetic, Physics and Philosophy"" (1989, with I. Yu. Kobzarev), ""Topics in Non-commutative Geometry"" (1991), and ""Methods of Homological Algebra"" (1996, with S. I. Gelfand), secured for him reliable reputation as a very good expositor. definitely the current publication will serve mathematicians for a few years to return.

    By Dong Eui Chang, Darryl D. Holm, George Patrick, Tudor Ratiu

    This booklet illustrates the large diversity of Jerry Marsden’s mathematical legacy in parts of geometry, mechanics, and dynamics, from very natural arithmetic to very utilized, yet continuously with a geometrical point of view. every one contribution develops its fabric from the perspective of geometric mechanics starting on the very foundations, introducing readers to trendy concerns through illustrations in quite a lot of issues. The twenty refereed papers contained during this quantity are in line with lectures and learn played throughout the month of July 2012 on the Fields Institute for learn in Mathematical Sciences, in a software in honor of Marsden's legacy.

    The unified remedy of the large breadth of issues taken care of during this e-book could be of curiosity to either specialists and newbies in geometric mechanics. specialists will realize functions in their personal typical ideas and strategies in a wide selection of fields, a few of which they could by no means have approached from a geometrical standpoint. newbies may well pick out themes that curiosity them one of the numerous fields and know about geometric ways and views towards these issues that might be new for them as well.
