Representations of finite and Lie groups by C. B Thomas ( )
15 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 880 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book provides an introduction to representations of both finiteand compact groups. The proofs of the basic results are given for thefinite case, but are so phrased as to hold without change for compacttopological groups with an invariant integral replacing the sum overthe group elements as an averaging tool. Among the topics covered arethe relation between representations and characters, the constructionof irreducible representations, induced representations and Frobeniusreciprocity. Special emphasis is given to exterior powers, with thesymmetric group Sn as an illustrative example
Elliptic structures on 3-manifolds by C. B Thomas ( )

Elliptic cohomology by C. B Thomas ( )
24 editions published between 1999 and 2013 in English and held by 821 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

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."
Geometry of Low-Dimensional Manifolds by S. K Donaldson ( )
4 editions published between 1990 and 1991 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume is based on lecture courses and seminars given at the LMS Durham Symposium on the geometry of low-dimensional manifolds. This area has been one of intense research recently, with major breakthroughs that have illuminated the way a number of di
Partial differential equations by Joseph Wloka ( Book )
5 editions published between 1987 and 1992 in English and held by 14 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
