Cohomologie équivariante des espaces SU(n)2g et de leurs réductions quasi-hamiltoniennes by Sébastien Racanière( Book )

1 edition published in 2002 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A well known fact about reduction in a Hamiltonian space is that its restriction map is surjective. In a quasi-Hamiltonian setting, things are more complicated. In this thesis, we study the case of the space SU(n)2̂g. Its reduction at an element in the center of SU(n) is isomorphic to a moduli space of semi-stable holomorphic vector bundles over a Riemann surface of genus g.Firstly, we study the reduction at a regular value of the moment map, namely a generator of the center of SU(n). We describe its restriction map in terms of natural multiplicative generators of the equivariant cohomology of SU(n)2̂g and of the moduli space's cohomology.Secondly, we look at the reduction at the identity matrix of SU(n). Here the restriction map is injective. After a study of a family of generalised Morse-Bott functions on SU(n)2̂g, we propose a geometric interpretation of the injectivity of the restriction map in the cases n=2 or 3
Complex polynomials by T Sheil-Small( )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Complex Polynomials explores the geometric theory of polynomials and rational functions in the plane. Early chapters build the foundations of complex variable theory, melding together ideas from algebra, topology, and analysis. Throughout the book, the author introduces a variety of ideas and constructs theories around them, incorporating much of the classical theory of polynomials as he proceeds. These ideas are used to study a number of unsolved problems. Several solutions to problems are given, including a comprehensive account of the geometric convolution theory
Global methods for combinatorial isoperimetric problems by Lawrence H Harper( )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is based on Professor Harper's many years' experience in teaching this subject and is ideal for graduate students entering the field. The author has increased the utility of the text for teaching by including worked examples, exercises, and material about applications to computer science. Applied systematically, the global point of view can lead to surprising insights and results, and established researchers will find this to be a valuable reference work on an innovative method for problem solving."--Jacket
Typical dynamics of volume preserving homeomorphisms by Steve Alpern( )

3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This 2000 book provides a self-contained introduction to typical properties of homeomorphisms. Examples of properties of homeomorphisms considered include transitivity, chaos and ergodicity. A key idea here is the interrelation between typical properties of volume preserving homeomorphisms and typical properties of volume preserving bijections of the underlying measure space. The authors make the first part of this book very concrete by considering volume preserving homeomorphisms of the unit n-dimensional cube, and they go on to prove fixed point theorems (Conley & ndash;Zehnder & ndash; Franks). This is done in a number of short self-contained chapters which would be suitable for an undergraduate analysis seminar or a graduate lecture course. Much of this work describes the work of the two authors, over the last twenty years, in extending to different settings and properties, the celebrated result of Oxtoby and Ulam that for volume homeomorphisms of the unit cube, ergodicity is a typical property
Representation Theory of Finite Reductive Groups by Marc Cabanes( )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At the crossroads of representation theory, algebraic geometry and finite group theory, this book brings together many of the main concerns of modern algebra, synthesizing the past twenty-five years of research, by including some of the most remarkable achievements in the field. The text is illustrated throughout by many examples, and background material is provided by several introductory chapters on basic results as well as appendices on algebraic geometry and derived categories. The result is an essential introduction for graduate students and a reference for all algebraists
Floer Homology Groups in Yang-Mills Theory by S. K Donaldson( )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Annotation This monograph gives a thorough exposition of Floer's seminal work during the 1980s from a contemporary viewpoint. The material contained here was developed with specific applications in mind. However, it has now become clear that the techniques used are important for many current areas of research. An important example would be symplectic theory and gluing problems for self-dual metrics and other metrics with special holonomy. The author writes with the big picture constantly in mind. As well as a review of the current state of knowledge, there are sections on the likely direction of future research. Included in this are connections between Floer groups and the celebrated Seiberg-Witten invariants. The results described in this volume form part of the area known as Donaldson theory. The significance of this work is such that the author was awarded the prestigious Fields Medal for his contribution

Harmonic Maps, Conservation Laws and Moving Frames by Béla Bollobás( )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Annotation This accessible introduction to harmonic map theory and its analytical aspects, covers recent developments in the regularity theory of weakly harmonic maps. The book begins by introducing these concepts, stressing the interplay between geometry, the role of symmetries and weak solutions. It then presents a guided tour into the theory of completely integrable systems for harmonic maps, followed by two chapters devoted to recent results on the regularity of weak solutions. A presentation of "exotic" functional spaces from the theory of harmonic analysis is given and these tools are then used for proving regularity results. The importance of conservation laws is stressed and the concept of a "Coulomb moving frame" is explained in detail. The book ends with further applications and illustrations of Coulomb moving frames to the theory of surfaces
An introduction to nonlinear analysis by Martin Schechter( )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The techniques used to solve nonlinear problems differ greatly from those dealing with linear features. Deriving all the necessary theorems and principles from first principles, this textbook gives upper undergraduates and graduate students a thorough understanding using as little background material as possible
Fixed point theory and applications by Ravi P Agarwal( )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Annotation This clear exposition of the flourishing field of fixed point theory, an important tool in the fields of differential equations and functional equations, starts from the basics of Banach's contraction theorem and develops most of the main results and techniques. The book explores many applications of the theory to analysis, with topological considerations playing a crucial role. The very extensive bibliography and close to 100 exercises mean that it can be used both as a text and as a comprehensive reference work, currently the only one of its type
Galois theories by Francis Borceux( )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Starting from the classical finite-dimensional Galois theory of fields, this book develops Galois theory in a much more general context. The authors first formalize the categorical context in which a general Galois theorem holds, and then give applications to Galois theory for commutative rings, central extensions of groups, the topological theory of covering maps and a Galois theorem for toposes. The book is designed to be accessible to a wide audience, the prerequisites are first courses in algebra and general topology, together with some familiarity with the categorical notions of limit and adjoint functors. For all algebraists and category theorists this book will be a rewarding read
Set theory by George J Tourlakis( )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Provides the reader with a solid foundation in set theory, while the inclusion of topics such as absoluteness, relative consistency results, two expositions of Godel's constructible universe, numerous ways of viewing recursion, and a chapter on Cohen forcing, will usher the advanced reader to the doorstep of the research literature
