Water gardens by Jacqueline Hériteau( Book )

3 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 426 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

All over North America, from Alaska to Florida, gardeners are discovering the magic of water in the landscape - the gentle sounds; the reflections of trees and clouds; the butterflies, birds, and dragonflies that water attracts; and the exotic plants that float on its surface. With new pond liner materials and aquatic plants that thrive in an eighteen-inch-diameter container, even the tiniest garden can be home to a pool, a fountain, or a pond. As homeowners discover the possibilities and practicalities of installing a water garden, hybridizers are introducing water plants that can survive in every climate zone. Today there is no excuse not to give yourself over to the pleasures of a water garden

An introduction to differential manifolds by J Lafontaine( Book )

9 editions published between 2003 and 2008 in English and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is an introduction to differential manifolds. It gives solid preliminaries for more advanced topics: Riemannian manifolds, differential topology, Lie theory. It presupposes little background: the reader is only expected to master basic differential calculus, and a little point-set topology. The book covers the main topics of differential geometry: manifolds, tangent space, vector fields, differential forms, Lie groups, and a few more sophisticated topics such as de Rham cohomology, degree theory and the Gauss-Bonnet theorem for surfaces. Its ambition is to give solid foundations. In particular, the introduction of ́ℓℓabstract́ℓℓ notions such as manifolds or differential forms is motivated via questions and examples from mathematics or theoretical physics. More than 150 exercises, some of them easy and classical, some others more sophisticated, will help the beginner as well as the more expert reader. Solutions are provided for most of them. The book should be of interest to various readers: undergraduate and graduate students for a first contact to differential manifolds, mathematicians from other fields and physicists who wish to acquire some feeling about this beautiful theory. The original French text Introduction aux vari©♭t©♭s diff©♭rentielles has been a best-seller in its category in France for many years. Jacques Lafontaine was successively assistant Professor at Paris Diderot University and Professor at the University of Montpellier, where he is presently emeritus. His main research interests are Riemannian and pseudo-Riemannian geometry, including some aspects of mathematical relativity. Besides his personal research articles, he was involved in several textbooks and research monographs
Elliptic cohomology : geometry, applications, and higher chromatic analogues by C. B Thomas( Book )

27 editions published between 1999 and 2013 in English and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Elliptic Cohomology is one of few books to present a systematic exposition of the geometric and arithmetic aspects of this extremely beautiful theory: a quotient-oriented cobordism localized away from the prime 2, whose coefficients coincide with a ring of modular forms. Charles B. Thomas constructs this cohomology theory and evaluates it on classifying spaces BG of finite groups G. Elliptic Cohomology is an important resource for mathematicians interested in topology, number theory, geometry, and theoretical and mathematical physics
Representations of finite and Lie groups by C. B Thomas( Book )

19 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and German and held by 204 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book provides an introduction to representations of both finite and compact groups. The proofs of the basic results are given for the finite case, but are so phrased as to hold without change for compact topological groups with an invariant integral replacing the sum over the group elements as an averaging tool. Among the topics covered are the relation between representations and characters, the construction of irreducible representations, induced representations and Frobenius reciprocity."--BOOK JACKET

Creating your own water garden by C. B Thomas( Book )

3 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since 1973, Storey's Country Wisdom Bulletins have offered practical, hands-on instructions designed to help readers master dozens of country living skills quickly and easily. There are now more than 170 titles in this series, and their remarkable popularity reflects the common desire of country and city dwellers alike to cultivate personal independence in everyday life
Geometric and analytic number theory by Edmund Hlawka( Book )

Foundations of mathematics : questions of analysis, geometry & algorithmics by Erwin Engeler( Book )

4 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is concerned with those foundational questions in elementary algebra, calculus and geometry, that are almost always left unanswered in undergraduate courses in these subjects. Among the topics considered are non-standard analysis, the relationship between classical geometric theorems (such as those of Pascal and Desargues) and field axioms, questions of decidability, and combinatorial logic. An attractive feature is the case given to the historical context in which foundational questions have arisen, and to the early attempts made to resolve them. From the ZENTRALBLATT review of the German edition: "It isone of those rare books which give you freedom and fantasy to reconsider themost common concepts of mathematics ... The book explains carefully, using motivating examples and sometimes quite original proofs, the developmentof crucial ideas in important branches of mathematics. It is a pleasure to read it."
Partial differential equations by Joseph Wloka( Book )

5 editions published between 1987 and 1992 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a rigorous introduction to the abstract theory of partial differential equations. The main prerequisite is familiarity with basic functional analysis: more advanced topics such as Fredholm operators, the Schauder fixed point theorem and Bochner integrals are introduced when needed, and the book begins by introducing the necessary material from the theory of distributions and Sobolev spaces. Using such techniques, the author presents different methods available for solving elliptic, parabolic and hyperbolic equations. He also considers the difference process for the practical solution of a partial differential equation, emphasising that it is possible to solve them numerically by simple methods. Many examples and exercises are provided throughout, and care is taken to explain difficult points. Advanced undergraduates and graduate students will appreciate this self-contained and practical introduction
