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

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
Harmonic maps, conservation laws, and moving frames by Frdric Hlein( )

1 edition 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
Harmonic Maps, Conservation Laws and Moving Frames by Frdric Hlein( )

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

An accessible and self-contained introduction to harmonic map theory and its analytical aspects, covering recent developments in the regularity theory of weakly harmonic maps. The book will be of particular interest to graduate students and researchers in geometry, analysis of partial differential equations and mathematical physics
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
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
Cohomology of Drinfeld modular varieties by Grard Laumon( )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cohomology of Drinfeld Modular Varieties aims to provide an introduction to this subject and to the Langlands correspondence for function fields. These varieties are the analogues for function fields of the Shimura varieties over number fields. The Langlands correspondence is a conjectured link between automorphic forms and Galois representations over a global field. By analogy with the number-theoretic case, one expects to establish the conjecture for function fields by studying the cohomology of Drinfeld modular varieties, which has been done by Drinfeld himself for the rank two case. This second volume is concerned with the ArthurSHSelberg trace formula, and to the proof in some cases of the Ramanujan-Petersson conjecture and the global Langlands conjecture for function fields. The author uses techniques that are extensions of those used to study Shimura varieties. Though the author considers only the simpler case of function rather than number fields, many important features of the number field case can be illustrated. Several appendices on background material keep the work reasonably self-contained. This book will be of much interest to all researchers in algebraic number theory and representation 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
Lectures in logic and 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
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
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
The logarithmic integral by Paul Koosis( )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The theme of this work, the logarithmic integral, lies athwart much of twentieth-century analysis. It is a thread connecting many apparently separate parts of the subject, and so is a natural point at which to begin a serious study of real and complex analysis. Professor Koosis' aim is to show how, from simple ideas, one can build up an investigation which explains and clarifies many different, seemingly unrelated problems; to show, in effect, how mathematics grows. The presentation is straightforward, so that by following the theme, Professor Koosis has produced a work that can be read as a whole. He has brought together here many results, some unpublished, some new, and some available only in inaccessible journals
