Approach Spaces : The Missing Link in the TopologyUniformityMetric Triad
ISBN: 9780198500308 / Angielski / Twarda / 262 str. Termin realizacji zamówienia: ok. 58 dni roboczych. In topology the three basic concepts of metrics, topologies and uniformities have been treated so far as separate entities by means of different methods and terminology. This is the first book to treat all three as a special case of the concept of approach spaces. This theory provides an answer to natural questions in the interplay between topological and metric spaces by introducing a uniquely well suited supercategory of TOP and MET. The theory makes it possible to equip initial structures of metricizable topological spaces with a canonical structure, preserving the numerical information of...

For example, they are expressed in fractals, famous for their beautiful but complicated geometric structure, which is the subject of study in dimension theory. And in dynamics the presence of invariant fractals often results in unstable "turbulentlike" motions and is associated with "chaotic" behavior.

Fractals and Chaos : The Mandelbrot Set and Beyond

It has only been a couple of decades since Benoit Mandelbrot published his famous picture of what is now called the Mandelbrot set. That picture, now seeming graphically primitive, has changed our view of the mathematical and physical universe. The properties and circumstances of the discovery of the Mandelbrot Set continue to generate much interest in the research community and beyond. This book contains the hardtoobtain original papers, many unpublished illustrations dating back to 1979 and extensive documented historical context showing how Mandelbrot helped change our way of looking...

A Taste of Topology
ISBN: 9780387257907 / Angielski / Miękka / 177 str. Termin realizacji zamówienia: ok. 58 dni roboczych. If mathematics is a language, then taking a topology course at the undergraduate level is cramming vocabulary and memorizing irregular verbs: a necessary, but not always exciting exercise one has to go through before one can read great works of literature in the original language. The present book grew out of notes for an introductory topology course at the University of Alberta. It provides a concise introduction to set theoretic topology (and to a tiny little bit of algebraic topology). It is accessible to undergraduates from the second year on, but even beginning graduate...

Aimed at graduate math students, this classic work is a systematic exposition of general topology and is intended to be a reference and a text. As a reference, it offers a reasonably complete coverage of the area, resulting in a more extended treatment than normally given in a course. As a text, the exposition in the earlier chapters proceeds at a pedestrian pace. A preliminary chapter covers those topics requisite to the main body of work.

Algebraic Topology : A First Course

This book is designed to introduce a student to some of the important ideas of algebraic topology by emphasizing the re lations of these ideas with other areas of mathematics. Rather than choosing one point of view of modem topology (homotopy theory, simplicial complexes, singular theory, axiomatic homology, differ ential topology, etc.), we concentrate our attention on concrete prob lems in low dimensions, introducing only as much algebraic machin ery as necessary for the problems we meet. This makes it possible to see a wider variety of important features of the subject...

Lectures on Analysis on Metric Spaces
ISBN: 9780387951041 / Angielski / Twarda / 141 str. Termin realizacji zamówienia: ok. 58 dni roboczych. Analysis in spaces with no a priori smooth structure has progressed to include concepts from the first order calculus. In particular, there have been important advances in understanding the infinitesimal versus global behavior of Lipschitz functions and quasiconformal mappings in rather general settings; abstract Sobolev space theories have been instrumental in this development. The purpose of this book is to communicate some of the recent work in the area while preparing the reader to study more substantial, related articles. The material can be roughly divided into three different types:...

Intuitive Combinatorial Topology
ISBN: 9780387951140 / Angielski / Twarda / 142 str. Termin realizacji zamówienia: ok. 58 dni roboczych. Topology is a relatively young and very important branch of mathematics. It studies properties of objects that are preserved by deformations, twistings, and stretchings, but not tearing. This book deals with the topology of curves and surfaces as well as with the fundamental concepts of homotopy and homology, and does this in a lively and wellmotivated way. There is hardly an area of mathematics that does not make use of topological results and concepts. The importance of topological methods for different areas of physics is also beyond doubt. They are used in field theory and general...

Up until recently, Riemannian geometry and basic topology were not included, even by departments or faculties of mathematics, as compulsory subjects in a universitylevel mathematical education. The standard courses in the classical differential geometry of curves and surfaces which were given instead (and still are given in some places) have come gradually to be viewed as anachronisms. However, there has been hitherto no unanimous agreement as to exactly how such courses should be brought up to date, that is to say, which parts of modern geometry should be regarded as absolutely essential to...

An Introduction to Algebraic Topology
ISBN: 9780387966786 / Angielski / Twarda / 437 str. Termin realizacji zamówienia: ok. 58 dni roboczych. There is a canard that every textbook of algebraic topology either ends with the definition of the Klein bottle or is a personal communication to J. H. C. Whitehead. Of course, this is false, as a glance at the books of Hilton and Wylie, Maunder, Munkres, and Schubert reveals. Still, the canard does reflect some truth. Too often one finds too much generality and too little attention to details. There are two types of obstacle for the student learning algebraic topology. The first is the formidable array of new techniques (e. g., most students know very little homological algebra); the second...

The main purpose of this book is to give a systematic treatment of singular homology and cohomology theory. It is in some sense a sequel to the author's previous book in this SpringerVerlag series entitled Algebraic Topology: An Introduction. This earlier book is definitely not a logical prerequisite for the present volume. However, it would certainly be advantageous for a prospective reader to have an acquaintance with some of the topics treated in that earlier volume, such as 2dimensional manifolds and the funda mental group.

This account is an introduction to mathematical knot theory, the theory of knots and links of simple closed curves in threedimensional space. Knots can be studied at many levels and from many points of view. They can be admired as artifacts of the decorative arts and crafts, or viewed as accessible intimations of a geometrical sophistication that may never be attained. The study of knots can be given some motivation in terms of applications in molecular biology or by reference to paral lels in equilibrium statistical mechanics or quantum field theory. Here, however, knot theory is...

The FourColor Theorem: History, Topological Foundations, and Idea of Proof
ISBN: 9780387984971 / Angielski / Twarda / 260 str. Termin realizacji zamówienia: ok. 58 dni roboczych. This little book discusses a famous problem which helped to define the field now known as topology: what is the minimum number of colours required to print a map so that no two adjoining countries have the same colour, no matter how convoluted their boundaries? Many mathematicians have worked on the problem, but the proof eluded formulation until the 1950s, when it was finally cracked with a bruteforce approach using a computer. The book begins by discussing the history of the problem, and then goes into the mathematics on such a level as to allow anyone with an elementary knowledge of...
