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

Il est bien connu que dans la réduction d'un espace hamiltonien, l'application de restriction est surjective. Dans le cadre quasi-hamiltonien les choses sont plus compliquées. Nous nous proposons d'étudier le cas de l'espace SU(n)2̂g . La réduction de cet espace en un élément du centre de SU(n) est isomorphe à un espace de modules de fibrés holomorphes semi-stables sur une surface de Riemann.En premier lieu nous nous intéressons à sa réduction en un générateur du centre de SU(n). Nous décrivons l'application de restriction dans ce cas en fonctions de générateurs multiplicatifs naturels de la cohomologie équivariante de SU(n)2̂g et de la cohomologie de l'espace de modules.Dans un deuxième temps, nous nous intéressons à sa réduction en la matrice identité de SU(n). L'application de restriction est ici injective. Après l'étude d'une famille de fonctions de Morse-Bott sur SU(n)2̂g, nous proposons une interprétation géométrique de l'injectivité de l'application de restriction dans les cas n=2 ou 3

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
Set theory by George J Tourlakis( )

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

This two-volume work bridges the gap between introductory expositions of logic or set theory on one hand, and the research literature on the other. It can be used as a text in an advanced undergraduate or beginning graduate course in mathematics, computer science, or philosophy. The volumes are written in a user-friendly conversational lecture style that makes them equally effective for self-study or class use. Volume II, on formal (ZFC) set theory, incorporates a self-contained 'chapter 0' on proof techniques so that it is based on formal logic, in the style of Bourbaki. The emphasis on basic techniques will provide the reader with a solid foundation in set theory and provides a context for the presentation of advanced 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
An introduction to maximum principles and symmetry in elliptic problems by L. E Fraenkel( )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Originallo published in 2000, this was the first book to present the basic theoro of the sommetro of solutions to second-order elliptic partial differential equations bo means of the maximum principle. It proceeds from elementaro facts about the linear case to recent results about positive solutions of non-linear elliptic equations. Gidas, Ni and Nirenberg, building on work of Alexandrov and of Serrin, have shown that the shape of the set on which such elliptic equations are solved has a strong effect on the form of positive solutions. In particular, if the equation and its boundaro condition allow sphericallo sommetric solutions, then, remarkablo, all positive solutions are sphericallo sommetric. Results are presented with minimal prerequisites in a stole suited to graduate students. Two long and leisurelo appendices give basic facts about the Laplace and Poisson equations. There is a plentiful supplo of exercises, with detailed hints
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
Modular forms and Galois cohomology by Haruzo Hida( )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book provides a comprehensive account of a key, perhaps the most important, theory that forms the basis of Taylor-Wiles proof of Fermat's last theorem. Hida begins with an overview of the theory of automorphic forms on linear algebraic groups and then covers the basic theory and recent results on elliptic modular forms, including a substantial simplification of the Taylor-Wiles proof by Fujiwara and Diamond. He offers a detailed exposition of the representation theory of profinite groups (including deformation theory), as well as the Euler characteristic formulas of Galois cohomology groups. The final chapter presents a proof of a non-abelian class number formula
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
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

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
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
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 book provides a self-contained introduction to typical properties of volume preserving homeomorphisms. Stress is given to the interrelation between typical properties of volume preserving homeomorphisms and typical properties of volume preserving bijections of the underlying measure space. An excellent introduction for newcomers, and an indispensable resource for experts
