ISBN-13: 9780198784869

This publication offers the topology of gentle 4-manifolds in an intuitive self-contained manner, constructed over a few years by means of Professor Akbulut. The textual content is aimed toward graduate scholars and specializes in the educating and studying of the topic, giving an instantaneous method of buildings and theorems that are supplemented by way of workouts to aid the reader paintings in the course of the information no longer lined within the proofs.

The publication features a hundred color illustrations to illustrate the guidelines instead of delivering long-winded and almost certainly uncertain factors. Key effects were chosen that relate to the cloth mentioned and the writer has supplied examples of ways to examine them with the recommendations built in previous chapters.

Huygens and Barrow, Newton and Hooke: pioneers in by Vladimir I. Arnol'd PDF

В книге написанной на основе лекции для студентов, рассказывается о рождении современной математики и теоретической физики в трудах великих ученых XVII века. Некоторые идеи Ньютона и Гюйгенса опередили свое время на несколько столетий и получили развитие только в последние годы. Об этих идеях, включая несколько новых результатов, также расказано в книге.

S. M. Natanzon's Moduli of Riemann Surfaces, Real Algebraic Curves, and Their PDF

The gap of all Riemann surfaces (the so-called moduli house) performs an incredible position in algebraic geometry and its purposes to quantum box conception. the current publication is dedicated to the learn of topological houses of this area and of comparable moduli areas, similar to the distance of actual algebraic curves, the gap of mappings, and likewise superanalogs of a majority of these areas.
