A Course in Commutative Algebra (Graduate Texts in by Gregor Kemper

By Gregor Kemper

This textbook bargains an intensive, sleek advent into commutative algebra. it really is intented frequently to function a advisor for a process one or semesters, or for self-study. The rigorously chosen subject material concentrates at the options and effects on the heart of the sector. The booklet continues a relentless view at the common geometric context, allowing the reader to achieve a deeper knowing of the cloth. even though it emphasizes thought, 3 chapters are dedicated to computational points. Many illustrative examples and routines enhance the textual content.

Wavelets: A Mathematical Tool for Signal Analysis by Charles K. Chui

By Charles K. Chui

Wavelets remain strong mathematical instruments that may be used to resolve difficulties for which the Fourier (spectral) process doesn't practice good or can't deal with. This e-book is for engineers, utilized mathematicians, and different scientists who are looking to find out about utilizing wavelets to research, strategy, and synthesize photographs and indications. purposes are defined intimately and there are step by step directions approximately tips to build and follow wavelets. the single mathematically rigorous monograph written via a mathematician in particular for nonspecialists, it describes the fundamental innovations of those mathematical thoughts, outlines the strategies for utilizing them, compares the functionality of varied methods, and gives info for challenge fixing, placing the reader on the vanguard of present study. Written for an interdisciplinary viewers of engineers, utilized mathematicians, and different scientists with very little wisdom of wavelets, readers with an undergraduate history in utilized arithmetic or engineering will savor this booklet.

Pythagoras: His Lives and the Legacy of a Rational Universe by Kitty Ferguson

By Kitty Ferguson

The captivating tale of Pythagoras and the Pythagoreans, whose perception reworked the traditional international and nonetheless encourage the geographical regions of technological know-how, arithmetic, philosophy and the humanities. Einstein acknowledged that the main extraordinary factor approximately our universe was once that it was once understandable in any respect. As Kitty Ferguson explains during this eye-opening new booklet, Pythagoras had a lot an identical notion – yet 2,500 years past. notwithstanding many understand him just for the so-called Pythagorean theorem, in reality the pillars of our clinical culture – the idea that the universe is rational, that there's solidarity to all issues, and that numbers and arithmetic are a robust consultant to fact approximately nature and the cosmos – hark again to the convictions of this mythical student and his historic fans. along the poignant human saga, Kitty Ferguson brilliantly conjures up Pythagoras’ historic international, exhibiting how his rules unfold in antiquity and within the center a long time, and chronicles the awesome impression he and his fans have had on awesome humans – from Plato to Bertrand Russell – in the course of the heritage of Western inspiration and technological know-how.

Twistor Theory for Riemannian Synmetric Spaces with by Francis E. Burstall, John H. Rawnsley

By Francis E. Burstall, John H. Rawnsley

During this monograph on twistor concept and its functions to harmonic map thought, a significant subject matter is the interaction among the complicated homogeneous geometry of flag manifolds and the true homogeneous geometry of symmetric areas. particularly, flag manifolds are proven to come up as twistor areas of Riemannian symmetric areas. purposes of this concept contain an entire type of reliable harmonic 2-spheres in Riemannian symmetric areas and a B?cklund remodel for harmonic 2-spheres in Lie teams which, in lots of instances, presents a factorisation theorem for such spheres in addition to hole phenomena. the most equipment used are these of homogeneous geometry and Lie thought including a few algebraic geometry of Riemann surfaces. The paintings addresses differential geometers, in particular people with pursuits in minimum surfaces and homogeneous manifolds.

Supermanifolds : theory and applications by Alice Rogers

By Alice Rogers

This booklet goals to fill the distance within the on hand literature on supermanifolds, describing the various techniques to supermanifolds including quite a few purposes to physics, together with a few which depend on the extra mathematical facets of supermanifold idea. the 1st a part of the ebook includes a complete advent to the idea of supermanifolds, evaluating and contrasting the various ways that exist. issues lined contain tensors on supermanifolds, large fibre bundles, tremendous Lie teams and integration conception. Later chapters emphasise functions, together with the superspace method of supersymmetric theories, large Riemann surfaces and the spinning string, direction integration on supermanifolds and BRST quantization.
