An introduction to twistor theory by
S. A Huggett(
Book
)
35 editions published between 1985 and 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 601 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book is an introduction to twistor theory and modern geometrical approaches to spacetime structure at the graduate or advanced undergraduate level. The choice of material presented has evolved from graduate lectures given in London and Oxford and the authors have aimed to retain the informal tone of those lectures. The book will provide graduate students with an introduction to the literature of twistor theory, presupposing some knowledge of special relativity and differential geometry. It would also be of use for a short course on spacetime structure independently of twistor theory. The physicist could be introduced gently to some of the mathematics which has proved useful in these areas, and the mathematician could be shown where sheaf cohomology and complex manifold theory can be used in physics

A topological aperitif by
S. A Huggett(
Book
)
35 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in English and held by 344 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This is a book of elementary geometric topology, in which geometry, frequently illustrated, guides calculation. The book starts with a wealth of examples, often subtle, of how to be mathematically certain whether two objects are the same from the point of view of topology." "After introducing surfaces, such as the Klein bottle, the book explores the properties of polyhedra drawn on these surfaces. More refined tools are developed in a chapter on winding number, and an appendix gives a glimpse of knot theory. Moreover, in this revised edition, a new section gives a geometrical description of part of the Classification Theorem for surfaces. Several striking new pictures show how given a sphere with any number of ordinary handles and at least one Klein handle, all the ordinary handles can be converted into Klein handles." "Numerous examples and exercises make this a useful textbook for a first undergraduate course in topology, providing a firm geometrical foundation for further study."Jacket
