By Yves Guivarc'h,Lizhen Ji,John C. Taylor

The notion of symmetric house is of relevant 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 research of the interrelationships between those a number of compactifications and, specifically, makes a speciality of the martin compactifications. it's the first exposition to regard compactifications of symmetric areas systematically and to uniformized some of the issues of view. The paintings is basically self-contained, with entire references to the literature. it's a superb source for either researchers and graduate students.

Compactification of Symmetric Spaces (Progress in Mathematics)

The concept that of symmetric area is of primary significance in lots of branches of arithmetic. Compactifications of those areas were studied from the issues of view of illustration thought, geometry, and random walks. This paintings is dedicated to the research of the interrelationships between those quite a few compactifications and, particularly, specializes in 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 guide. Written for the reader who already has a grounding within the topic, the quantity includes 27 expository surveys masking the main lively components of study.

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 subject matters lined in complex examine monographs on Atiyah-Singer index conception. the most topic is the learn of warmth circulate linked to the Laplacians on differential kinds. this gives a unified therapy of Hodge conception 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 foundation of operad thought. 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.
