Compactification of Symmetric Spaces (Progress in Mathematics)

The idea that of symmetric area is of vital value in lots of branches of arithmetic. Compactifications of those areas were studied from the issues of view of illustration concept, geometry, and random walks. This paintings is dedicated to the examine of the interrelationships between those quite a few compactifications and, specifically, makes a speciality of the martin compactifications.

Handbook of Algebraic Topology

Algebraic topology (also referred to as homotopy idea) is a flourishing department of contemporary arithmetic. it's very a lot a global topic and this is often mirrored within the heritage of the 36 major specialists who've contributed to the instruction manual. Written for the reader who already has a grounding within the topic, the quantity involves 27 expository surveys protecting the main lively components of analysis.

The Laplacian on a Riemannian Manifold: An Introduction to Analysis on Manifolds (London Mathematical Society Student Texts)

This article on research of Riemannian manifolds is a radical advent to themes lined in complicated learn monographs on Atiyah-Singer index concept. the most subject is the examine of warmth movement linked to the Laplacians on differential kinds. this offers a unified therapy of Hodge concept and the supersymmetric evidence of the Chern-Gauss-Bonnet theorem.

Modules over Operads and Functors (Lecture Notes in Mathematics)

This monograph offers a overview of the root of operad idea. It additionally reports buildings of modules over operads as a brand new machine to version functors among different types of algebras as successfully as operads version different types of algebras.
