Elements of the theory of representations by A. A Kirillov( Book )

46 editions published between 1972 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 621 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The translator of a mathematical work faces a task that is at once fascinating and frustrating. He has the opportunity of reading closely the work of a master mathematician. He has the duty of retaining as far as possible the flavor and spirit of the original, at the same time rendering it into a readable and idiomatic form of the language into which the translation is made. All of this is challenging. At the same time, the translator should never forget that he is not a creator, but only a mirror. His own viewpoints, his own preferences, should never lead him into altering the original, even with the best intentions. Only an occasional translator's note is permitted. The undersigned is grateful for the opportunity of translating Professor Kirillov's fine book on group representations, and hopes that it will bring to the English-reading mathematical public as much instruction and interest as it has brought to the translator. Deviations from the Russian text have been rigorously avoided, except for a number of corrections kindly supplied by Professor Kirillov. Misprints and an occasional solecism have been tacitly taken care of. The trans lation is in all essential respects faithful to the original Russian. The translator records his gratitude to Linda Sax, who typed the entire translation, to Laura Larsson, who prepared the bibliography (considerably modified from the original), and to Betty Underhill, who rendered essential assistance

Theorems and problems in functional analysis by A. A Kirillov( Book )

Even the simplest mathematical abstraction of the phenomena of reality the real line-can be regarded from different points of view by different mathematical disciplines. For example, the algebraic approach to the study of the real line involves describing its properties as a set to whose elements we can apply" operations," and obtaining an algebraic model of it on the basis of these properties, without regard for the topological properties. On the other hand, we can focus on the topology of the real line and construct a formal model of it by singling out its" continuity" as a basis for the model. Analysis regards the line, and the functions on it, in the unity of the whole system of their algebraic and topological properties, with the fundamental deductions about them obtained by using the interplay between the algebraic and topological structures. The same picture is observed at higher stages of abstraction. Algebra studies linear spaces, groups, rings, modules, and so on. Topology studies structures of a different kind on arbitrary sets, structures that give mathe matical meaning to the concepts of a limit, continuity, a neighborhood, and so on. Functional analysis takes up topological linear spaces, topological groups, normed rings, modules of representations of topological groups in topological linear spaces, and so on. Thus, the basic object of study in functional analysis consists of objects equipped with compatible algebraic and topological structures
Representation theory and noncommutative harmonic analysis I : fundamental concepts, representations of Virasoro and affine algebras by A. A Kirillov( Book )

21 editions published between 1994 and 2011 in English and held by 332 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Part I of this book is a short review of the classical part of representation theory. The main chapters of representation theory are discussed: representations of finite and compact groups, finite- and infinite-dimensional representations of Lie groups. It is a typical feature of this survey that the structure of the theory is carefully exposed - the reader can easily see the essence of the theory without being overwhelmed by details. The final chapter is devoted to the method of orbits for different types of groups. Part II deals with representation of Virasoro and Kac-Moody algebra. The second part of the book deals with representations of Virasoro and Kac-Moody algebra. The wealth of recent results on representations of infinite-dimensional groups is presented
Lectures on the orbit method by A. A Kirillov( Book )

12 editions published between 1900 and 2004 in English and held by 273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Isaac Newton encrypted his discoveries in analysis in the form of an anagram, which deciphers to the sentence ``It is worthwhile to solve differential equations''. Accordingly, one can express the main idea behind the Orbit Method by saying "It is worthwhile to study coadjoint orbits". The orbit method was introduced by the author, A. A. Kirillov, in the 1960s and remains a useful and powerful tool in areas such as Lie theory, group representations, integrable systems, complex and symplectic geometry, and mathematical physics. This book describes the essence of the orbit method for non-experts and gives the first systematic, detailed, and self-contained exposition of the method. It starts with a convenient ``User's Guide'' and contains numerous examples. It can be used as a text for a graduate course, as well as a handbook for non-experts and a reference book for research mathematicians and mathematical physicists
Representation theory and noncommutative harmonic analysis II by A. A Kirillov( Book )

20 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This EMS volume contains two contributions: the first one, "Harmonic Analysis on Homogeneous Spaces", is written by V.F. Molchanov, the second one, "Representations of Lie Groups and Special Functions", by N. Ya. Vilenkin and A.U. Klimyk. Molchanov focuses on harmonic analysis on semi-simple spaces, whereas Vilenkin and Klimyk treat group theoretical methods also with respect to integral transforms. Both contributions are surveys introducing readers to the above topics and preparing them for the study of more specialised literature. This book will be very useful to mathematicians, theoretical physicists and also to chemists dealing with quantum systems
The orbit method in geometry and physics : in honor of A.A. Kirillov by A. A Kirillov( Book )

13 editions published in 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The orbit method influenced the development of several areas of mathematics in the second half of the 20th century and remains a useful and powerful tool in such areas as Lie theory, representation theory, integrable systems, complex geometry, and mathematical physics. Among the distinguished names associated with the orbit method is that of A.A. Kirillov, whose pioneering paper on nilpotent orbits (1962), places him as the founder of orbit theory. The original research papers in this volume are written by prominent mathematicians and reflect recent achievements in orbit theory and other closely related areas such as harmonic analysis, classical representation theory, Lie superalgebras, Poisson geometry, and quantization.

A tale of two fractals by A. A Kirillov( Book )

14 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since Benoit Mandelbrot's pioneering work in the late 1970s, scores of research articles and books have been published on the topic of fractals. Despite the volume of literature in the field, the general level of theoretical understanding has remained low; most work is aimed either at too mainstream an audience to achieve any depth or at too specialized a community to achieve widespread use. Written by celebrated mathematician and educator A.A. Kirillov, A Tale of Two Fractals helps bridge this gap, providing an original treatment of fractals that is at once accessible to beginners and sufficiently rigorous for serious mathematicians. The work is designed to give young, non-specialist mathematicians a solid foundation in the theory of fractals. As its title suggests, this book focuses primarily on two fractals: the Sierpiński gasket and the Apollonian gasket. Over the course of the book, they are developed and discussed in various contexts. Along with fundamental definitions and properties, some of the key concepts and approaches covered include * the Laplace operator * harmonic functions * generalized numerical systems * Descartes' theorem * rational paramaterizations * group action on fractals * generalization to multiple dimensions In addition to its explicit goal of providing undergraduate and graduate students with a sound foundation in fractal theory, A Tale of Two Fractals serves to enhance their overall understanding of mathematics by drawing on a wide variety of techniques from other subfields. Furthermore, by virtue of the subject matter, it provides a unique opportunity for students to develop their capacity for recognizing patterns and formulating interesting questions. It is therefore a valuable text not only for any course on fractals or hyperbolic geometry, but also for any survey course with an aim of honing creative-problem-solving skills

Lectures on tensor categories and modular functors by Bojko Bakalov( Book )

3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book gives an exposition of the relations among the following three topics: monoidal tensor categories (such as a category of representations of a quantum group), 3-dimensional topological quantum field theory, and 2-dimensional modular functors (which naturally arise in 2-dimensional conformal field theory). The following examples are discussed in detail: the category of representations of a quantum group at a root of unity and the Wess-Zumino-Witten modular functor. The idea that these topics are related first appeared in the physics literature in the study of quantum field theory. Pioneering works of Witten and Moore-Seiberg triggered an avalanche of papers, both physical and mathematical, exploring various aspects of these relations. Upon preparing to lecture on the topic at MIT, however, the authors discovered that the existing literature was difficult and that there were gaps to fill. The text is wholly expository and finely succinct. It gathers results, fills existing gaps, and simplifies some proofs. The book makes an important addition to the existing literature on the topic. It would be suitable as a course text at the advanced-graduate level
