Galois groups over Q : proceedings of a workshop held March 23-27, 1987 by Y Ihara ( Book )
3 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume is being published in connection with a March, 1987 workshop on Galois groups over Q and related topics, held at the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute in Berkeley. The organizing committee for the workshop consisted of Kenneth Ribet (chairman), Yasutaka Ihara, and Jean-Pierre Serre. The volume contains key original papers by experts in the field, and treats a variety of questions in arithmetical algebraic geometry. A number of the contributions discuss Galois actions on fundamental groups, and associated topics: these include Fermat curves, Gauss sums, cyclotomic units, and motivic questions. Other themes which reoccur include semistable reduction of algebraic varieties, deformations of Galois representations, and connections between Galois representations and modular forms. The authors contributing to the volume are: G.W. Anderson, D. Blasius, D. Ramakrishnan, P. Deligne, Y. Ihara, U. Jannsen, B.H. Matzat, B. Maszur, and K. Wingberg. The contributions are of exceptionally high quality, and this book will have permanent value. The volume will be of great interest to students and established workers in many areas of algebraic number theory and algebraic geometry
Wave motion : theory, modelling, and computation : proceedings of a conference in honor of the 60th birthday of Peter D. Lax by Alexandre Joel Chorin ( Book )
4 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The 60th birthday of Peter Lax was celebrated at Berkeley by a conference entitled Wave Motion: theory, application and computation held at the mathematical Sciences Research Institute, June 9-12, 1986. Peter Lax has made profound and essential contributions to the topics described by the title of the conference, and has also contributed in important ways to many other mathematical subjects, and as a result this conference volume dedicated to him includes research work on a variety of topics, not all clearly related to its title
Several complex variables ( Book )
4 editions published between 1999 and 2010 in English and held by 231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
&Quot;Several Complex Variables is a central area of mathematics with strong interactions with partial differential equations, algebraic geometry, number theory, and differential geometry. The 1995-96 MSRI program on several complex variables emphasized these interactions and concentrated on developments and problems of current interest that capitalize on this interplay of ideas and techniques.&quot. "Thanks to its distinguished list of contributors, this volume provides a representative sample of the best work done this decade in several complex variables."--BOOK JACKET
Geometric analysis and computer graphics : proceedings of a workshop held May 23-25, 1988 by Paul Concus ( Book )
4 editions published between 1990 and 1991 in English and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The meeting at the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute in Berkeley was structured around principal lectures given by Almgren, Callahan, Ericksen, Francis, Gulliver, Hanrahan, Kajiya, Polthier, Sethian, Sterling, Thomas, and Vogel. The divergent backgrounds of these and the many other participants, as reflected in their lectures at the meeting and in the papers presented here, testify to the unifying element of the workshop's central theme. The depth and range of the new developments presented in the lectures point to scientific and technological frontiers being crossed with impressive speed. The present volume is offered as a permanent record for those who were present, and also with a view towards making the material available to a wider audience than were able to attend
Noncommutative rings by Susan Montgomery ( Book )
6 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in English and held by 228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume collects some of the survey lectures delivered at the Microprogram on Noncommutative Rings held at the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, July 10-12, 1989. While the program was concerned with recent advances in ring theory, it also focussed on related areas of mathematics where ring theory might be expected to have an impact. Topics covered included quantum groups, the algebraic aspects of quantum field theory, finite dimensional Lie algebras, and the modern theory of Noetherian rings and localization. The text will be a valuable tool for both advanced graduate students and research mathematicians
Fermat's last theorem the theorem and its proof, an exploration of issues and ideas ( Visual )
6 editions published between 1993 and 2012 in English and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The videotape is based on a presentation at the Palace of Fine Arts Theater in San Francisco that took place on July 28, 1993, exactly five weeks after Andrew Wiles announced that he had a proof of Fermat's Last Theorem. The videotape also includes excerpts from an interview with Andrew Wiles made in Oxford, England, the day after he announced his proof in Cambridge. Both the booklet and the videotape are designed for a general audience. They deal not only with Fermat's Last Theorem itself, but with the excitement of mathematical discovery in general and the way mathematical ideas can illuminate other subjects
Algorithms and classification in combinatorial group theory by Gilbert Baumslag ( Book )
4 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in English and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Circle in a box by Sam Vandervelde ( Book )
3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Math circles provide a selling in which mathematicians work with secondary school students who are interested in mathematics. This form of outreach, which has existed for decades in Russia, Bulgaria, and other countries, is now rapidly spreading across the United Stales as well. The first part of this book offers helpful advice on all aspects of math circle operations, culled from conversations with over a dozen directors of successful math circles. Topics include creative means for getting the word out to students, sound principles for selecting effective speakers, guidelines for securing financial support, and tips for designing an exciting math circle session. The purpose of this discussion is to enable math circle coordinators to establish a thriving group in which students can experience the delight of mathematical investigation. The second part of the book outlines ten independent math circle sessions, covering a variety of topics and difficulty levels. Each chapter contains detailed presentation notes along with a useful collection of problems and solutions."--BOOK JACKET
