A tale of two fractals by A. A Kirillov( )

Since Benoit Mandelbrot's pioneering work in the late 1970s, scores of research articles and books have been published on the topic of fractals. Despite the volume of literature in the field, the general level of theoretical understanding has remained low; most work is aimed either at too mainstream an audience to achieve any depth or at too specialized a community to achieve widespread use. Written by celebrated mathematician and educator A.A. Kirillov, A Tale of Two Fractals helps bridge this gap, providing an original treatment of fractals that is at once accessible to beginners and sufficiently rigorous for serious mathematicians. The work is designed to give young, non-specialist mathematicians a solid foundation in the theory of fractals. As its title suggests, this book focuses primarily on two fractals: the Sierpiński gasket and the Apollonian gasket. Over the course of the book, they are developed and discussed in various contexts. Along with fundamental definitions and properties, some of the key concepts and approaches covered include * the Laplace operator * harmonic functions * generalized numerical systems * Descartes' theorem * rational paramaterizations * group action on fractals * generalization to multiple dimensions In addition to its explicit goal of providing undergraduate and graduate students with a sound foundation in fractal theory, A Tale of Two Fractals serves to enhance their overall understanding of mathematics by drawing on a wide variety of techniques from other subfields. Furthermore, by virtue of the subject matter, it provides a unique opportunity for students to develop their capacity for recognizing patterns and formulating interesting questions. It is therefore a valuable text not only for any course on fractals or hyperbolic geometry, but also for any survey course with an aim of honing creative-problem-solving skills
Representation theory and noncommutative harmonic analysis I : fundamental concepts, representations of Virasoro and affine algebras by A. A Kirillov( Book )
14 editions published between 1994 and 2011 in English and held by 280 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Part I of this book is a short review of the classical part of representation theory. The main chapters of representation theory are discussed: representations of finite and compact groups, finite- and infinite-dimensional representations of Lie groups. It is a typical feature of this survey that the structure of the theory is carefully exposed - the reader can easily see the essence of the theory without being overwhelmed by details. The final chapter is devoted to the method of orbits for different types of groups. Part II deals with representation of Virasoro and Kac-Moody algebra. The second part of the book deals with representations of Virasoro and Kac-Moody algebra. The wealth of recent results on representations of infinite-dimensional groups is presented
Representation theory and noncommutative harmonic analysis II by A. A Kirillov( Book )
13 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This EMS volume contains two contributions: the first one, "Harmonic Analysis on Homogeneous Spaces", is written by V.F. Molchanov, the second one, "Representations of Lie Groups and Special Functions", by N. Ya. Vilenkin and A.U. Klimyk. Molchanov focuses on harmonic analysis on semi-simple spaces, whereas Vilenkin and Klimyk treat group theoretical methods also with respect to integral transforms. Both contributions are surveys introducing readers to the above topics and preparing them for the study of more specialised literature. This book will be very useful to mathematicians, theoretical physicists and also to chemists dealing with quantum systems

The coordinate method by I. M Gelʹfand( Book )
21 editions published between 1964 and 1973 in 3 languages and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The orbit method in geometry and physics : in honor of A.A. Kirillov ( Book )
5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 200 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The orbit method influenced the development of several areas of mathematics in the second half of the 20th century and remains a useful and powerful tool in such areas as Lie theory, representation theory, integrable systems, complex geometry, and mathematical physics. Among the distinguished names associated with the orbit method is that of A.A. Kirillov, whose pioneering paper on nilpotent orbits (1962), places him as the founder of orbit theory. The original research papers in this volume are written by prominent mathematicians and reflect recent achievements in orbit theory and other closely related areas such as harmonic analysis, classical representation theory, Lie superalgebras, Poisson geometry, and quantization.

The work will be an invaluable reference for researchers in the above mentioned fields, as well as a useful text for graduate seminars and courses
