Some applications of modular forms by Peter Sarnak( Book )

24 editions published between 1989 and 2010 in English and Russian and held by 414 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The theory of modular forms and especially the so-called 'Ramanujan conjectures' have been applied to resolve problems in combinatorics, computer science, analysis and number theory. This tract, based on the Wittemore Lectures given at Yale University, is concerned with describing some of these applications
Elementary number theory, group theory, and Ramanujan graphs by Giuliana P Davidoff( Book )

19 editions published in 2003 in English and German and held by 394 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This text is a self contained treatment of expander graphs and in particular their explicit construction. Expander graphs are both highly connected but sparse, and besides their interest within combinatorics and graph theory, they also find various applications in computer science and engineering
Random matrices, Frobenius eigenvalues, and monodromy by Nicholas M Katz( Book )

14 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 386 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The main topic of this book is the deep relation between the spacings between zeros of zeta and L-functions and spacings between eigenvalues of random elements of large compact classical groups. This relation, the Montgomery-Odlyzko law, is shown to hold for wide classes of zeta and L-functions over finite fields. The book draws on and gives accessible accounts of many disparate areas of mathematics, from algebraic geometry, moduli spaces, monodromy, equidistribution, and the Weil conjectures, to probability theory on the compact classical groups in the limit as their dimension goes to infinit

Extremal Riemann surfaces by J. R Quine( Book )

15 editions published between 1996 and 2015 in English and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There are discussions of Hurwitz surfaces and surfaces with large cyclic groups of automorphisms. Also discussed are surfaces which are natural candidates for solving extremal problems such as triangular, modular, and arithmetic surfaces, and curves in various group theoretically defined curve families. Other allied topics are theta identities, quadratic periods of Abelian differentials, Teichmuller disks, binary quadratic forms, and spectral asymptotics of degenerating hyperbolic three manifolds
Automorphic forms and applications( Book )

5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The theory of automorphic forms has seen dramatic developments in recent years. In particular, important instances of Langlands functoriality have been established. This volume presents three weeks of lectures from the IAS/Park City Mathematics Institute Summer School on automorphic forms and their applications. It addresses some of the general aspects of automorphic forms, as well as certain recent advances in the field." "This volume is recommended for independent study or an advanced topics course. It is suitable for graduate students and researchers interested in automorphic forms and number theory."--Jacket

Selected papers by Peter D Lax( Book )

12 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A renowned mathematician who considers himself both applied and theoretical in his approach, Peter Lax has spent most of his professional career at NYU, making significant contributions to both mathematics and computing. He has written several important published works and has received numerous honours including the National Medal of Science, the Lester R. Ford Award, the Chauvenet Prize, the Semmelweis Medal, the Wiener Prize, and the Wolf Prize. Several students he has mentored have become leaders in their fields. These two volumes span the years from 1952 up until 1999, and cover many varying topics, from functional analysis, partial differential equations, and numerical methods to conservation laws, integrable systems and scattering theory. After each paper, or collection of papers, is a commentary placing the paper in context and where relevant discussing more recent developments. Many of the papers in these volumes have become classics and should be read by any serious student of these topics. In terms of insight, depth, and breadth, Lax has few equals. The reader of this selection will quickly appreciate his brilliance as well as his masterful touch. Having this collection of papers in one place allows one to follow the evolution of his ideas and mathematical interests and to appreciate how many of these papers initiated topics that developed lives of their own

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
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 2000 book provides a self-contained introduction to typical properties of homeomorphisms. Examples of properties of homeomorphisms considered include transitivity, chaos and ergodicity. A key idea here is the interrelation between typical properties of volume preserving homeomorphisms and typical properties of volume preserving bijections of the underlying measure space. The authors make the first part of this book very concrete by considering volume preserving homeomorphisms of the unit n-dimensional cube, and they go on to prove fixed point theorems (Conley & ndash;Zehnder & ndash; Franks). This is done in a number of short self-contained chapters which would be suitable for an undergraduate analysis seminar or a graduate lecture course. Much of this work describes the work of the two authors, over the last twenty years, in extending to different settings and properties, the celebrated result of Oxtoby and Ulam that for volume homeomorphisms of the unit cube, ergodicity is a typical property
Lectures in Logic and Set Theory:. 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
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
