The geometry and physics of knots by Michael Francis Atiyah( Book )

29 editions published between 1990 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 621 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These notes arise from lectures presented in Florence under the auspices of the Accadamia dei Lincee and deal with an area that lies at the crossroads of mathematics and physics. The material presented here rests primarily on the pioneering work of Vaughan Jones and Edward Witten relating polynomial invariants of knots to a topological quantum field theory in 2+1 dimensions. Professor Atiyah here presents an introduction to Witten's ideas from the mathematical point of view. The book will be essential reading for all geometers and gauge theorists as an exposition of new and interesting ideas in a rapidly developing area
Lectures in modern analysis and applications by C. T Taam( Book )

24 editions published between 1967 and 1970 in 3 languages and held by 472 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A Lecture Series in Modern Analysis and Applications was sponsored by the Consortium of American, Catholic, Georgetown, George Washington and Howard Universities, of the District of Columbia, the University of Maryland, College Park, and the Air Force Office of Scientific Research, in the greater Washington, D.C. area, during the period Fall, 1967 through Spring 1969. The series consisted of 8 sessions of 3 lectures each. Each session was devoted to an active basic area of contemporary analysis which is important in application or shows potential applications. Each lecture presented a survey and a critical review of certain aspects of that area, with emphasis on new results, open problems and applications. This volume, the third and final one of the series, contains five lectures from the seventh and eighth sessions, which were devoted to modern harmonic analysis and applications, and integration in function spaces and applications. The lectures concern the Littlewood-Paley Theory, the Theory of Automorphic Forms, Quantization and Unitary Representations, Random Linear Functionals, and the Absolute Continuity of Stochastic Processes.

This volume contains the lectures of ten distinguished mathematicians designed to provide the reader with a deeper understanding of the fundamental theory and appreciate the range of results. This volume contains much to interest mathematicians and theoretical physicists from advanced undergraduate level upwards
Sir Isaac Newton the gravity of genius( Visual )

5 editions published between 2004 and 2012 in English and held by 301 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By the age of 23, he had laid the foundations for calculus, the laws of gravity, motion and inertia, and begun experiments on light. His major work is called 'The Principia'. Isaac Newton has been called the Father of Modern Science. His incredible body of work represents arguably the greatest contribution to science ever made by an individual. But despite living at the vibrant center of an inspired social scene, his personal life was marked by loneliness. Examine the many discoveries and private fears of this remarkable man
Miscellanea mathematica by Michael Francis Atiyah( Book )

11 editions published in 1991 in English and German and held by 289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mathematics has a certain mystique, for it is pure and ex- act, yet demands remarkable creativity. This reputation is reinforced by its characteristic abstraction and its own in- dividual language, which often disguise its origins in and connections with the physical world. Publishing mathematics, therefore, requires special effort and talent. Heinz Gotze, who has dedicated his life to scientific pu- blishing, took up this challenge with his typical enthusi- asm. This Festschrift celebrates his invaluable contribu- tions to the mathematical community, many of whose leading members he counts among his personal friends. The articles, written by mathematicians from around the world and coming from diverse fields, portray the important role of mathematics in our culture. Here, the reflections of important mathematicians, often focused on the history of mathematics, are collected, in recognition of Heinz Gotze's life-long support of mathematics

Art in the life of mathematicians( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Why are mathematicians drawn to art? How do they perceive it? What motivates them to pursue excellence in music or painting? Do they view their art as a conveyance for their mathematics or an escape from it? What are the similarities between mathematical talent and creativity and their artistic equivalents? What are the differences? Can a theatrical play or a visual image capture the beauty and excitement of mathematics? Some of the world's top mathematicians are also accomplished artists: musicians, photographers, painters, dancers, writers, filmmakers. In this volume, they share some of their work and reflect on the roles that mathematics and art have played in their lives. They write about creativity, communication, making connections, negotiating successes and failures, and navigating the vastly different professional worlds of art and mathematics.--From publisher description
Vector fields on manifolds by Michael Francis Atiyah( Book )

9 editions published between 1970 and 1974 in 4 languages and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper is a contribution to the topological study of vector fields on manifolds. In particular we shall be concerned with the problems of exist ence of r linearly independent vector fields. For r = 1 the classical result of H. Hopf asserts that the vanishing of the Euler characteristic is the necessary and sufficient condition, and our results will give partial extens ions of Hopf's theorem to the case r> 1. Arecent article by E. Thomas [10] gives a good survey of work in this general area. Our approach to these problems is based on the index theory of elliptic differential operators and is therefore rather different from the standard topological approach. Briefly speaking, what we do is to observe that certain invariants of a manifold (Euler characteristic, signature, etc.) are indices of elliptic operators (see [5]) and the existence of a certain number of vector fields implies certain symmetry conditions for these operators and hence corresponding results for their indices. In this way we obtain certain necessary conditions for the existence of vector fields and, more generally, for the existence of fields of tangent planes. For example, one of our results is the following THEOREM (1. 1). Let X be a compact oriented smooth manifold 0/ dimension 4 q, and assume that X possesses a tangent fteld of oriented 2-planes (that is, an oriented 2-dimensional sub-bundle 0/ the tangent vector bundle)

Collected papers of V.K. Patodi by V. K Patodi( Book )

7 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sir Michael Atiyah is currently the Master of Trinity College Cambridge and Director of the Issac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences. After initial studies in Cambridge he moved to Oxford where he spent the next thirty years, except for a four year stay at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton. He has worked in many fields of mathematics including geometry, topology, differential equations and theoretical physics. He received the Fields Medal in Moscow in 1966. He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1962 and served as President from 1990-1995. Vijay Kumar Patodi was a brilliant Indian mathematicians who made, during his short life, fundamental contributions to the analytic proof of the index theorem and to the study of differential geometric invariants of manifolds. This set of collected papers edited by Prof M. Atiyah and Prof Narasimhan includes his path-breaking papers on the McKean-Singer conjecture and the analytic proof of Riemann-Roch-Hirzebruch theorem for Kahler manifolds. It also contains his celebrated joint papers on the index theorem and the Atiyah-Patodi-Singer invariant
Fields medallists' lectures by Michael Francis Atiyah( Book )

9 editions published between 1998 and 2016 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Although the Fields Medal does not have the same public recognition as the Nobel Prizes, they share a similar intellectual standing. It is restricted to one field-- that of mathematics. The medal is awarded to the best mathematicians who are 40 or younger, every four years. A list of Fields Medallists and their contributions provides a bird's-eye view of the major developments in mathematics over the past 80 years. It highlights the areas in which, at various times, the greatest progress has been made.The third edition of Fields Medallists' Lectures features additional contributions from: John W Milnor (1962), Enrico Bombieri (1974), Gerd Faltings (1986), Andrei Okounkov (2006), Terence Tao (2006), Cédric Villani (2010), Elon Lindenstrauss (2010), Ngô Bao Châu (2010), Stanislav Smirnov (2010)."--Publisher
The founders of index theory : reminiscences of and about Sir Michael Atiyah, Raoul Bott, Friedrich Hirzebruch, and I.M. Singer( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Index Theory is one of the most exciting and consequential accomplishments of twentieth-century mathematics. The Founders of Index Theory contemplates the four great mathematicians who developed index theory - Sir Michael Atiyah, Raoul Bott, Friedrich Hirzebruch, and I.M. Singer - through the eyes of their students, collaborators and colleagues, their friends and family members, and themselves." "In addition to their own essays and correspondence - of historical importance - this volume presents a variety of material of a decidedly personal as well as compelling mathematical nature, written by some of their most notable students and long-time collaborators, including such leading current figures in mathematics and physics as Simon Donaldson, Edward Witten, and S.T. Yau. In these writings, one perceives the expansive influence of their work across various fields of mathematics and into theoretical physics." "At a time when the long and illustrious careers of Atiyah, Hirzebruch, and Singer are being recognized with birthday celebrations at Edinburgh, in Europe, and in Massachusetts, this second edition of Founders of Index Theory remembers the late and much beloved Raoul Bott - in the affectionate words of those three men, as well as family members and long-time friends and colleagues. What emerges is the portrait of a compelling mathematical mind informed by a warm and magnetic personality that was both a joy and inspiration to those who knew him." "This volume includes a generous collection of color and black-and-white photographs - many rarely seen - of the four principal figures together with their family, friends, and colleagues. These include numerous images of Bott dating from his early childhood to his last years at Harvard University." "The Founders of Index Theory, Second Edition is a valuable portrayal of four men who transformed mathematics in a profound manner, and who belong to a class of researchers whose interest and influence transcend the conventional boundaries of mathematical fields."--Jacket
