Applied Differential Geometry by William L. Burke

By William L. Burke

it is a self-contained introductory textbook at the calculus of differential varieties and glossy differential geometry. The meant viewers is physicists, so the writer emphasises functions and geometrical reasoning so one can provide effects and ideas an exact yet intuitive that means with out getting slowed down in research. the massive variety of diagrams is helping elucidate the basic rules. Mathematical themes coated comprise differentiable manifolds, differential kinds and twisted kinds, the Hodge famous person operator, external differential structures and symplectic geometry. all the arithmetic is encouraged and illustrated via priceless actual examples.

General Investigations of Curved Surfaces: Edited with an Introduction and Notes by Peter Pesic (Dover Books on Mathematics)

Gauss's idea of surfaces is without doubt one of the simply mathematical achievements encouraged via principles that arose in reference to surveys of the skin of the earth. lengthy considered as a masterpiece in content material and shape, this paintings good points one of many author's most unusual contributions to mathematics--the discovery that Gauss termed the "Theorema Egregium.

The Local Structure of Algebraic K-Theory: 18 (Algebra and Applications)

Algebraic K-theory encodes very important invariants for a number of mathematical disciplines, spanning from geometric topology and sensible research to quantity idea and algebraic geometry. As is often encountered, this strong mathematical item is especially challenging to calculate. except Quillen's calculations of finite fields and Suslin's calculation of algebraically closed fields, few whole calculations have been to be had sooner than the invention of homological invariants provided by way of motivic cohomology and topological cyclic homology.

Fractal Solutions for Understanding Complex Systems in Earth Sciences (Springer Earth System Sciences)

This publication bargains with fractals in figuring out difficulties encountered in earth technology, and their recommendations. It starts off with an research of 2 periods of tools (homogeneous fractals random types, and homogeneous resource distributions or “one aspect” distributions) greatly subtle within the geophysical neighborhood, specially for learning capability fields and their similar resource distributions.
