Surgery on simply-connected manifolds by William Browder( Book )

31 editions published between 1969 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 481 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is an exposition of the technique of surgery on simply-connected smooth manifolds. Systematic study of differentiable manifolds using these ideas was begun by Milnor [45] and Wallace [68] and developed extensively in the last ten years. It is now possible to give a reasonably complete theory of simply-connected manifolds of dimension ~ 5 using this approach and that is what I will try to begin here. The emphasis has been placed on stating and proving the general results necessary to apply this method in various contexts. In Chapter II, these results are stated, and then applications are given to characterizing the homotopy type of differentiable manifolds and classifying manifolds within a given homotopy type. This theory was first extensively developed in Kervaire and Milnor [34] in the case of homotopy spheres, globalized by S.P. Novikov [49] and the author [6] for closed 1-connected manifolds, and extended to the bounded case by Wall [65] and Golo [23]. The thesis of Sullivan [62] reformed the theory in an elegant way in terms of classifying spaces

In search of symmetry : AMS retiring presidential address by William Browder( Visual )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The videotape combines Browder's short remarks about his presidency with a mathematical lecture, plus an informal interview in which he discusses a range of topics, including public awareness of mathematics and his interest in music. The lecture discusses the action of finite groups on manifolds
The Kervaire invariant of framed manifolds and its generalization by William Browder( Book )

From Coxeter diagrams to Kummer identities by George D Mostow( Visual )

2 editions published between 1991 and 2008 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

G.D. Mostow, who served as AMS president from 1986 to 1988, illustrates how various branches of mathematics, while seeming quite separate, can in fact have profound connections. Beginning with diagrams for finite groups generated by complex reflections, first introduced by Coxeter in 1966, Mostow describes how this line of research eventually led him and his colleagues to the Kummer identities for hypergeometric functions
Pulling back fixed points by William Browder( Book )

The Future of Acquisitions in the New Eastern Europe( )

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An examination of the issues affecting decisions to take up business opportunities in Eastern Europe. The report analyses the current legal and other barriers, the increasingly favourable environment for acquisitions brought about by the great need for investment and the strategic and financial attractions for Western companies wanting to acquire in Eastern Europe.--SCAD summary
