Introduction to topology by Solomon Lefschetz( Book )

50 editions published between 1945 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,031 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book, which may be used as a self-contained text for a beginning course, Professor Lefschetz aims to give the reader a concrete working knowledge of the central concepts of modern combinatorial topology: complexes, homology groups, mappings in spheres, homotopy, transformations and their fixed points, manifolds and duality theorems. Each chapter ends with a group of problems. Originally published in 1949. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These paperback editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905
Topology by Solomon Lefschetz( Book )

60 editions published between 1930 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 748 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lefschetz's Topology was written in the period in between the beginning of topology, by Poincaré, and the establishment of algebraic topology as a well-formed subject, separate from point-set or geometric topology. At this time, Lefschetz had already proved his first fixed-point theorems. In some sense, the present book is a description of the broad subject of topology into which Lefschetz's theory of fixed points fits. Lefschetz takes the opportunity to describe some of the important applications of his theory, particularly in algebraic geometry, to problems such as counting intersections of

Algebraic geometry by Solomon Lefschetz( Book )

45 editions published between 1937 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 569 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first application of modern algebraic techniques to a comprehensive selection of classical geometric problems. Written with spirit and originality, this is a valuable book for anyone interested in the subject from other than the purely algebraic point of view. Originally published in 1953.

Stability of nonlinear control systems by Solomon Lefschetz( Book )

30 editions published between 1965 and 1980 in 3 languages and held by 565 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A concise picture of control stability is presented as it has developed from the method of hiapunov. Elementary work, dealing only with dimensions one and two, is presented first. The theory in the pre-Popov period is presented, with emphasis placed on vectors and matrices. Popov's contribution is presented along with his extensive use of Fourier transforms and advanced analysis. A theorem weaker than Kalman's completion of Popov's second theorem is presented. It rests upon an important lemma due to Yacubovich and its proof follows that of Kalman

Topics in topology by Solomon Lefschetz( Book )

41 editions published between 1942 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 444 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Solomon Lefschetz pioneered the field of topology--the study of the properties of many�sided figures and their ability to deform, twist, and stretch without changing their shape. According to Lefschetz, "If it's just turning the crank, it's algebra, but if it's got an idea in it, it's topology." The very word topology comes from the title of an earlier Lefschetz monograph published in 1920. In Topics in Topology Lefschetz developed a more in-depth introduction to the field, providing authoritative explanations of what would today be considered the basic tools of algebraic topology. Lefschetz moved to the United States from France in 1905 at the age of twenty-one to find employment opportunities not available to him as a Jew in France. He worked at Westinghouse Electric Company in Pittsburgh and there suffered a horrible laboratory accident, losing both hands and forearms. He continued to work for Westinghouse, teaching mathematics, and went on to earn a Ph. D. and to pursue an academic career in mathematics. When he joined the mathematics faculty at Princeton University, he became one of its first Jewish faculty members in any discipline. He was immensely popular, and his memory continues to elicit admiring anecdotes. Editor of Princeton University Press's Annals of Mathematics from 1928 to 1958, Lefschetz built it into a world-class scholarly journal. He published another book, Lectures on Differential Equations, with Princeton in 1946
