By Loring W. Tu

Manifolds, the higher-dimensional analogs of soft curves and surfaces, are primary gadgets in sleek arithmetic. Combining points of algebra, topology, and research, manifolds have additionally been utilized to classical mechanics, common relativity, and quantum box theory.

In this streamlined advent to the topic, the idea of manifolds is gifted with the purpose of aiding the reader in achieving a fast mastery of the fundamental issues. by way of the tip of the booklet the reader can be in a position to compute, at the very least for easy areas, some of the most simple topological invariants of a manifold, its de Rham cohomology. alongside the best way, the reader acquires the data and talents beneficial for additional research of geometry and topology. The considered necessary point-set topology is incorporated in an appendix of twenty pages; different appendices evaluate proof from genuine research and linear algebra. tricks and recommendations are supplied to a few of the routines and problems.

This paintings can be used because the textual content for a one-semester graduate or complicated undergraduate path, in addition to by means of scholars engaged in self-study. Requiring in simple terms minimum undergraduate necessities, 'Introduction to Manifolds' can also be a very good starting place for Springer's GTM eighty two, 'Differential types in Algebraic Topology'.

New Foundations for Physical Geometry: The Theory of Linear Structures

Topology is the mathematical learn of the main easy geometrical constitution of an area. Mathematical physics makes use of topological areas because the formal capability for describing actual house and time. This publication proposes a totally new mathematical constitution for describing geometrical notions corresponding to continuity, connectedness, obstacles of units, etc, that allows you to supply a greater mathematical instrument for figuring out space-time.

Fractal Geometry and Stochastics IV: 61 (Progress in Probability)

During the last fifteen years fractal geometry has proven itself as a considerable mathematical conception in its personal correct. The interaction among fractal geometry, research and stochastics has hugely inspired fresh advancements in mathematical modeling of advanced constructions. This procedure has been pressured via difficulties in those parts regarding functions in statistical physics, biomathematics and finance.
