This quantity is an advent and a monograph approximately tight polyhedra. The therapy of the 2-dimensional case is self- contained and reasonably uncomplicated. it might be appropriate additionally for undergraduate seminars. specific emphasis is given to the interaction of assorted unique disciplines, similar to geometry, straightforward topology, combinatorics and convex polytopes in a manner now not present in different books. a regular end result relates tight submanifolds to combinatorial houses in their convex hulls. The chapters on better dimensions generalize the 2-dimensional case utilizing thoughts from combinatorics and topology, corresponding to combinatorial Morse thought. a couple of open difficulties is mentioned.

This booklet is an exposition of the means of surgical procedure on simply-connected gentle manifolds. Systematic learn of differentiable manifolds utilizing those principles used to be began via Milnor  and Wallace  and constructed broadly within the final ten years. it's now attainable to offer a fairly whole idea of simply-connected manifolds of size ~ five utilizing this strategy and that's what i'm going to try and start the following.
Thomas Cecil is a math professor with an unrivalled snatch of Lie Sphere Geometry. the following, he presents a transparent and entire glossy therapy of the topic, in addition to its functions to the examine of Euclidean submanifolds. It starts with the development of the distance of spheres, together with the basic notions of orientated touch, parabolic pencils of spheres, and Lie sphere modifications.
This targeted monograph through a famous UCLA professor examines intimately the math of Kerr black holes, which own the homes of mass and angular momentum yet hold no electric cost. appropriate for complicated undergraduates and graduate scholars of arithmetic, physics, and astronomy in addition to specialist physicists, the self-contained remedy constitutes an advent to trendy suggestions in differential geometry.
"Brings to the reader a massive volume of data, good prepared and condensed into below 200 pages. " — Mathematical ReviewsIn fresh many years twistor thought has develop into a huge concentration for college kids of mathematical physics. critical to twistor concept is the geometrical remodel often called the Penrose rework, named for its groundbreaking developer.
