Differential forms in algebraic topology by Raoul Bott( Book )

35 editions published between 1981 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 723 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This text, developed from a first-year graduate course in algebraic topology, is an informal introduction to some of the main ideas of contemporary homotopy and cohomology theory. The materials are structured around four core areas- de Rham theory, the Cech-de Rham complex, spectral sequences, and characteristic classes-and include some applications to homotopy theory. By using the de Rham theory of differential forms as a prototype of cohomology, the machineries of algebraic topology are made easier to assimilate. With its stress on concreteness, motivation, and readability, "Differential Forms in Algebraic Topology" should be suitable for self-study or for a one- semester course in topology

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
