Categories and sheaves by Masaki Kashiwara( )

18 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in English and held by 666 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Categories and sheaves, which emerged in the middle of the last century as an enrichment for the concepts of sets and functions, appear almost everywhere in mathematics nowadays. This book covers categories, homological algebra and sheaves in a systematic and exhaustive manner starting from scratch, and continues with full proofs to an exposition of the most recent results in the literature, and sometimes beyond. The authors present the general theory of categories and functors, emphasising inductive and projective limits, tensor categories, representable functors, ind-objects and localization. Then they study homological algebra including additive, abelian, triangulated categories and also unbounded derived categories using transfinite induction and accessible objects. Finally, sheaf theory as well as twisted sheaves and stacks appear in the framework of Grothendieck topologies
D-modules and microlocal geometry : proceedings of the International Conference on D-Modules and Microlocal Geometry, held at the University of Lisbon (Portugal), October 29-November 2, 1990 by International Conference on D-Modules and Microlocal Geometry( )

Seminar on micro-local analysis by Victor Guillemin( Book )

16 editions published between 1979 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 431 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on a seminar sponsored by the Institute for Advanced Study in 1977-1978, this set of papers introduces micro-local analysis concisely and clearly to mathematicians with an analytical background. The papers treat the theory of microfunctions and applications such as boundary values of elliptic partial differential equations, propagation of singularities in the vicinity of degenerate characteristics, holonomic systems, Feynman integrals from the hyperfunction point of view, and harmonic analysis on Lie groups

Physical combinatorics by Masaki Kashiwara( Book )

16 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 295 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Taking into account the various criss-crossing among mathematical subjects, Physical Combinatorics presents new results and exciting ideas from three viewpoints: representation theory, integrable models, and combinatorics." "This volume will be of interest to mathematical physicists and graduate students in the above-mentioned fields."--Jacket
Topological field theory, primitive forms and related topics by Masaki Kashiwara( Book )

17 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As the interaction of mathematics and theoretical physics continues to intensify, the theories developed in mathematics are being applied to physics, and conversely. This book centers around the theory of primitive forms which currently plays an active and key role in topological field theory (theoretical physics), but was originally developed as a mathematical notion to define a "good period mapping" for a family of analytic structures. The expository papers in this volume are by participants of the Taniguchi Symposium "Topological Field Theory. Primitive Forms and Related Topics" and of the RIMS Symposium bearing the same title, both held in Kyoto. These articles reflect the broad research of some of the world's leading mathematical physicists, and should serve as an excellent resource for researchers as well as graduate students of both disciplines
Regular and irregular holonomic D-modules by Masaki Kashiwara( )

11 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

D-module theory is essentially the algebraic study of systems of linear partial differential equations. This book, the first devoted specifically to holonomic D-modules, provides a unified treatment of both regular and irregular D-modules. The authors begin by recalling the main results of the theory of indsheaves and subanalytic sheaves, explaining in detail the operations on D-modules and their tempered holomorphic solutions. As an application, they obtain the Riemann-Hilbert correspondence for regular holonomic D-modules. In the second part of the book the authors do the same for the sheaf of enhanced tempered solutions of (not necessarily regular) holonomic D-modules. Originating from a series of lectures given at the Institut des Hautes Études Scientifiques in Paris, this book is addressed to graduate students and researchers familiar with the language of sheaves and D-modules, in the derived sense
D-modules and microlocal calculus by Masaki Kashiwara( Book )

4 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and Japanese and held by 237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Masaki Kashiwara is undoubtedly one of the masters of the theory of D-modules, and he has created a good, accessible entry point to the subject. The theory of D-modules is a very powerful point of view, bringing ideas from algebra and algebraic geometry to the analysis of systems of differential equations. It is often used in conjunction with microlocal analysis, as some of the important theorems are best stated or proved using these techniques. The theory has been used very successfully in applications to representation theory. Here, there is an emphasis on b-functions. These show up in vario
MathPhys odyssey 2001 : integrable models and beyond : in honor of Barry M. McCoy by Anne Boutet de Monvel-Berthier( Book )

14 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is dedicated to Barry M. McCoy on the occasionofhis sixtieth birthday. Barry McCoy has led the research on integrable models in statistical mechanics and quantumfieldtheoryfor morethan 30years. Hisbook, cowrittenwithT. T. Wu, The Two dimensional/sing Model, (HarvardUniversity)containsallthebasic resultsontheIsing model obtained by the early 1970s. However, McCoy'sjointpaper with Wu, Tracy and Barouch, Spin-spin correlation functions for the two-dimensional/sing model: Exact results in the scaling region (Physical Review B13, 316-374, 1976), was a giant step beyond the book. A remarkable connection between the two-point scaling correlation functions and the Painleve transcendents was found. This work made an enormous impact on mathematical physics in the last quarter of the 20th century. It gave the first nontrivial exampleofinteracting field theory in which the Green function can be written explicitly in terms of special functions satisfying nonlinear differential equations. Later in the 1980s, an extensive list of massless field theories was added in the innovation of conformal field theory, in which the Green functions are characterized by linear differential equationsofthe hypergeometric type. However, evenalmost30yearsaftertheirwork, theIsingmodel isessentiallytheunique casewhereall theGreenfunctionsofmassivefield theoryarecharacterizedbynonlinear differential equations
