Praise for George Francis's A Topological Picturebook:

Bravo to Springer for reissuing this specified and gorgeous e-book! It not just reminds the older new release of the pleasures of doing arithmetic via hand, but in addition exhibits the recent new release what ``hands on'' relatively means.

- John Stillwell, college of San Francisco

The Topological Picturebook has taught an entire new release of mathematicians to attract, to determine, and to think.

- Tony Robbin, artist and writer of Shadows of fact: The Fourth size in Relativity, Cubism, and sleek Thought

The vintage reference for a way to provide topological information visually, filled with extraordinary hand-drawn pictures of complex surfaces.

- John Sullivan, Technische Universitat Berlin

A Topological Picturebook we could scholars see topology because the unique discoverers conceived it: concrete and visible, freed from the formalism that burdens traditional textbooks.

- Jeffrey Weeks, writer of The form of Space

A Topological Picturebook is a visible banquet for somebody concerned about mathematical images.  Francis offers beautiful examples to construct one's "visualization muscles".  whilst, he explains the underlying rules and layout options for readers to create their very own lucid drawings.

- George W. Hart, Stony Brook University

In this choice of narrative gemstones and exciting hand-drawn images, George Francis demonstrates the chicken-and-egg courting, in arithmetic, of snapshot and textual content. because the ebook used to be first released, the case for images in arithmetic has been gained, and now it's time to contemplate their that means. A Topological Picturebook is still indispensable.

- Marjorie Senechal, Smith university and co-editor of the Mathematical Intelligencer

The 1st of 2 volumes supplying a contemporary advent to Kaehlerian geometry and Hodge constitution. The e-book starts off with easy fabric on advanced variables, complicated manifolds, holomorphic vector bundles, sheaves and cohomology thought, the latter being taken care of in a extra theoretical manner than is common in geometry.

New PDF release: Topics in Contemporary Mathematical Physics

This new (second) version encompasses a common therapy of quantum box concept (QFT) in an easy scalar box environment as well as the trendy fabric at the purposes of differential geometry and topology, team thought, and the speculation of linear operators to physics present in the 1st version. these kind of are brought with no assuming extra heritage at the a part of the reader than an excellent starting place in undergraduate (junior) point mathematical physics.

Matt Kerr,Gregory Pearlstein's Recent Advances in Hodge Theory: Period Domains, Algebraic PDF

In its least difficult shape, Hodge thought is the research of classes – integrals of algebraic differential types which come up within the research of complicated geometry and moduli, quantity thought and physics. equipped round the easy innovations of diversifications of Hodge constitution and interval maps, this quantity attracts jointly new advancements in deformation concept, reflect symmetry, Galois representations, iterated integrals, algebraic cycles and the Hodge conjecture.

The aim of this e-book, which was once first released in 1978, is to provide an entire account of the idea of permanents, their background and purposes. This quantity was once the 1st whole account of the speculation of permanents, overlaying nearly the entire of the topic, a function that no easy survey of the idea of matrices may also test.
