Most widely held works by Peter J Nicholls
The ergodic theory of discrete groups by Peter J Nicholls( Book )
17 editions published between 1989 and 2010 in English and held by 338 libraries worldwide
The particular focus of the book is on the remarkable measure supported on the limit set of a discrete group that was first developed by S. J. Patterson
Mathematical thinking in a quantitative world by Linda R Sons( Book )
3 editions published between 1990 and 1992 in English and held by 20 libraries worldwide
These text materials are intended for a college course in quantitative reasoning ... The thrust of these materials is towards helping the student develop the use of mathematical thinking in his/her life as an educated person. The course for which these materials are intended seeks to develop in the student a competency in problem solving and analysis which is helpful in personal decision-making; in evaluating concerns in the community, state, and nation; in setting and achieving career goals; and in continued learning. The text presupposes two years of college preparatory high school mathematics. One year of college preparatory high school algebra is assumed along with a second year of mathematics which consists of college preparatory geometry or a second year of college preparatory algebra. Elementary geometry is also assumed.-Pref. to rev. ed

The ergodic theory of discrete groups by Peter J Nicholls( file )
1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
The interaction between ergodic theory and discrete groups has a long history and much work was done in this area by Hedlund, Hopf and Myrberg in the 1930s. There has been a great resurgence of interest in the field, due in large measure to the pioneering work of Dennis Sullivan. Tools have been developed and applied with outstanding success to many deep problems. The ergodic theory of discrete groups has become a substantial field of mathematical research in its own right, and it is the aim of this book to provide a rigorous introduction from first principles to some of the major aspects of the theory. The particular focus of the book is on the remarkable measure supported on the limit set of a discrete group that was first developed by S. J. Patterson for Fuchsian groups, and later extended and refined by Sullivan
