It intends to guide graduate students into the analysis of Yang–Mills theory as well as to serve as a reference for researchers in the field.
The book is largely self-contained. It contains a number of appendices (e.g. on Sobolev spaces of maps between manifolds) and an introductory part covering the Lp-regularity theory for the inhomogenous Neumann problem. The two main parts contain the full proofs of Uhlenbeck’s weak and strong compactness theorems on closed manifolds as well as their generalizations to manifolds with boundary and noncompact manifolds. These parts include a number of useful analytic tools such as general patching constructions and local slice theorems.07aFunctional analysis2bicssc07aGlobal analysis, analysis on manifolds2msc07aPartial differential equations2msc07aFunctional analysis2msc07aQuantum theory2msc40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/004423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/wehrheim_mini.jpg01706nam a22003375a 450000100100000000300120001000500170002200600190003900700150005800800410007302000180011402400210013204000140015307200170016708400150018410000300019924501010022926000820033030000340041233600260044633700260047233800360049834700240053449000510055850600650060952005170067465000350119165000460122685600320127285600640130416-091109CH-001817-320091109150325.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa091109e20040531sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719503170a10.4171/0032doi ach0018173 7aPBKJ2bicssc a37-xx2msc1 aPesin, Yakov B.,eauthor.10aLectures on partial hyperbolicity and stable ergodicityh[electronic resource] /cYakov B.

which together constitute the Fukaya category. The relevant aspects
of pseudo-holomorphic curve theory are covered in some detail, and
there is also a self-contained account of the necessary homological
algebra.
Generally, the emphasis is on simplicity rather than generality. The last part discusses applications to Lefschetz fibrations, and contains many previously unpublished results. The book will be of
interest to graduate students and researchers in symplectic geometry
and mirror symmetry.

Permutations can be decomposed into cycles, polynomials over a finite field into irreducible factors, mappings into connected components. In all of these examples, and in many more, there are strong similarities between the numbers of components of different sizes that are found in the decompositions of `typical' elements of large size. For instance, the total number of components grows logarithmically with the size of the element, and the size of the largest component is an appreciable fraction of the whole.
This book explains the similarities in asymptotic behaviour as the result of two basic properties shared by the structures: the conditioning relation and the logarithmic condition. The discussion is conducted in the language of probability, enabling the theory to be developed under rather general and explicit conditions; for the finer conclusions, Stein's method emerges as the key ingredient. The book is thus of particular interest to graduate students and researchers in both combinatorics and probability theory.07aProbability & statistics2bicssc07aAlgebra2bicssc07aNumber theory2bicssc07aProbability theory and stochastic processes2msc07aNumber theory2msc07aField theory and polynomials2msc1 aBarbour, A.

Cartan posed the problem to find all irreducible real
linear Lie algebras. An updated exposition of his work was given by
Iwahori (1959). This theory reduces the classification of irreducible
real representations of a real Lie algebra to a description of the
so-called self-conjugate irreducible complex representations of this
algebra and to the calculation of an invariant of such a representation
(with values +1 or -1) which is called the index. Moreover, these two
problems were reduced to the case when the Lie algebra is simple and
the highest weight of its irreducible complex representation is
fundamental. A complete case-by-case classification for all simple real
Lie
algebras was given (without proof) in the tables of Tits (1967). But
actually a general solution of these problems is contained in a paper
of Karpelevich (1955) (written in Russian and not widely known), where
inclusions between real forms induced by a complex representation were
studied.
We begin with a simplified (and somewhat extended and corrected)
exposition of the main part of this paper and relate it to the theory
of Cartan-Iwahori. We conclude with some tables, where an involution of
the Dynkin diagram which allows us to find self-conjugate
representations is described and explicit formulas for the index are
given. In a short addendum, written by J. v. Silhan, this involution is
interpreted in terms of the Satake diagram.
The book is aimed at students in Lie groups, Lie algebras and their
representations, as well as researchers in any field where these
theories are used. The reader is supposed to know the classical theory
of complex semisimple Lie algebras and their finite dimensional
representation; the main facts are presented without proofs in Section
1. In the remaining sections the exposition is made with detailed
proofs, including the correspondence between real forms and involutive
automorphisms, the Cartan decompositions and the con...07aAlgebra2bicssc07aNonassociative rings and algebras2msc07aTopological groups, Lie groups2msc40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/002423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/onishchik_mini.jpg02533nam a22003375a 450000100100000000300120001000500170002200600190003900700150005800800410007302000180011402400210013204000140015307200170016708400150018410000390019924501000023826000820033830000340042033600260045433700260048033800360050634700240054249000510056650600650061752013330068265000310201565000450204685600320209185600720212319-091109CH-001817-320091109150325.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa091109e20080205sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719505570a10.4171/0052doi ach0018173 7aPHRD2bicssc a83-xx2msc1 aChristodoulou, Demetrios,eauthor.10aMathematical Problems of General Relativity Ih[electronic resource] /cDemetrios Christodoulou3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2008 a1 online resource (157 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aZurich Lectures in Advanced Mathematics (ZLAM)1 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aGeneral Relativity is a theory proposed by Einstein in 1915 as a unified theory of space, time and gravitation. It is based on and extends Newton’s theory of gravitation as well as Newton’s equations of motion. It is thus fundamentally rooted in classical mechanics. The theory can be seen as a development of Riemannian geometry, itself an extension of
Gauss’ intrinsic theory of curved surfaces in Euclidean space. The domain of application of the theory is astronomical systems.
One of the mathematical methods analyzed and exploited in the present volume is an extension of Noether’s fundamental principle connecting symmetries to conserved quantities. This is involved at a most elementary level in the very definition of the notion of hyperbolicity for an Euler–Lagrange system of partial differential equations. Another method is the study and systematic use of foliations by characteristic (null) hypersurfaces, and is in the spirit of the approach of Roger Penrose in his incompleteness theorem. The methods have applications beyond general relativity to problems in fluid mechanics and, more generally, to the mechanics and electrodynamics of continuous media.
The book is intended for advanced students and researchers seeking an introduction into the methods and applications of general relativity.07aGeneral relativity2bicssc07aRelativity and gravitational theory2msc40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/005423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/christodoulou_mini.jpg02495nam a22003975a 450000100100000000300120001000500170002200600190003900700150005800800410007302000180011402400210013204000140015307200170016707200170018408400360020110000360023724501030027326000820037630000340045833600260049233700260051833800360054434700240058049000510060450600650065552010420072065000470176265000350180965000310184465000400187565000380191565000480195385600320200185600640203321-091109CH-001817-320091109150325.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa091109e20041025sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719506270a10.4171/0062doi ach0018173 7aPBMP2bicssc 7aPBKJ2bicssc a53-xxa35-xxa57-xxa58-xx2msc1 aChang, Sun-Yung Alice,eauthor.10aNon-linear Elliptic Equations in Conformal Geometryh[electronic resource] /cSun-Yung Alice Chang3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2004 a1 online resource (100 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aZurich Lectures in Advanced Mathematics (ZLAM)1 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aNon-linear elliptic partial differential equations are an important tool in the study of Riemannian metrics in differential geometry, in particular for problems concerning the conformal change of metrics in Riemannian geometry. In recent years the role played by the second order semi-linear elliptic equations in the study of Gaussian curvature and scalar curvature has been extended to a family of fully non-linear elliptic equations associated with other symmetric functions of the Ricci tensor. A case of particular interest is the second symmetric function of the Ricci tensor in dimension four closely related to the Pfaffian.
In these lectures, starting from the background material, the author reviews the problem of prescribing Gaussian curvature on compact surfaces. She then develops the analytic tools (e.g. higher order conformal invariant operators, Sobolev inequalities, blow-up analysis) in order to solve a fully nonlinear equation in prescribing the Chern-Gauss-Bonnet integrand on compact manifolds of dimension four.07aDifferential & Riemannian geometry2bicssc07aDifferential equations2bicssc07aDifferential geometry2msc07aPartial differential equations2msc07aManifolds and cell complexes2msc07aGlobal analysis, analysis on manifolds2msc40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/006423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/chang_mini.jpg02093nam a22003975a 450000100100000000300120001000500170002200600190003900700150005800800410007302000180011402400210013204000140015307200170016707200170018408400360020110000370023724501210027426000820039530000340047733600260051133700260053733800360056334700240059949000670062350600650069052006230075565000290137865000470140765000240145465000410147865000550151965000180157485600320159285600710162422-141027CH-001817-320141027234500.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa141027e20140118sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719632870a10.4171/1322doi ach0018173 7aPBKD2bicssc 7aPBMP2bicssc a26-xxa30-xxa32-xxa51-xx2msc1 aPapadopoulos, Athanase,eauthor.10aMetric Spaces, Convexity and Nonpositive Curvatureh[electronic resource] :bSecond edition /cAthanase Papadopoulos3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2014 a1 online resource (320 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aIRMA Lectures in Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (IRMA)v61 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aThis book is about metric spaces of nonpositive curvature in the sense of Busemann, that is, metric spaces whose distance function satisfies a convexity condition.

Following those in Paris, 1992, Budapest, 1996 and Barcelona, 2000, the Fourth European Congress of Mathematics took place in Stockholm, Sweden, June 27 to July 2, 2004 with 913 participants from 65 countries. Apart from seven plenary and thirty three invited lectures, there were six “Science Lectures” covering the most relevant aspects of mathematics in science and technology. Moreover, twelve projects of the EU Research Training Networks in Mathematics and Information Sciences, as well as Programmes from the European Science Foundation in Physical and Engineering Sciences were presented. Ten EMS Prizes were awarded to young European mathematicians who have made a particular contribution to the progress of mathematics. Five of the prize winners were independently chosen by the 4ECM Scientific Committee as plenary or invited speakers. The other five prize winners gave their lectures in parallel sessions. Most of these contributions are now collected in this volume, providing a permanent record of so much that is best in mathematics today.

Zucchini.1 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aHyperbolic and kinetic equations arise in a large variety of industrial problems.
For this reason, the CEMRACS summer research center held at CIRM in Luminy in 2003 was devoted to this topic. During a six-week period, junior and senior researchers worked full time on several projects proposed by industry and academia. Most of this work was completed later on, and the results are now reported in the present book.
The articles address modelling issues as well as the development and comparisons of numerical methods in different situations. The applications include multi-phase flows, plasma physics, quantum particle dynamics, radiative
transfer, sprays and aeroacoustics.
The text is aimed at researchers and engineers interested in modelling and numerical simulation of hyperbolic and kinetic problems arising from applications.07aNumerical analysis2bicssc07aNumerical analysis2msc1 aCordier, Stéphane,eeditor.1 aGoudon, Thierry,eeditor.1 aGutnic, Michael,eeditor.1 aSonnendrücker, Eric,eeditor.40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/012423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/cordier_mini.jpg02451nam a22003495a 450000100100000000300120001000500170002200600190003900700150005800800410007302000180011402400210013204000140015307200170016708400220018410000320020624501300023826000820036830000340045033600260048433700260051033800360053634700240057249000510059650600650064752011920071265000350190465000400193965000250197985600320200485600650203625-091109CH-001817-320091109150325.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa091109e20060430sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719521570a10.4171/0212doi ach0018173 7aPBKJ2bicssc a35-xxa76-xx2msc1 aKuksin, Sergei B.,eauthor.10aRandomly forced nonlinear PDEs and statistical hydrodynamics in 2 space dimensionsh[electronic resource] /cSergei B.

The main results presented here were obtained during the last five to ten years and, up to now, have been available only in papers in the primary literature. Their summary and synthesis here, beginning with some preliminaries on partial differential equations and stochastics, make the book a self-contained account that will appeal to readers with a general background in analysis.
After laying the groundwork, the author goes on to recent results on ergodicity of random dynamical systems, which the randomly forced Navier-Stokes equation defines in the function space of divergence-free vector fields, including a Central Limit Theorem. The physical meaning of these results is discussed as well as their relations with the theory of attractors. Next, the author studies the behaviour of solutions when the viscosity goes to zero. In the final section these dynamical methods are used to derive the so-called balance relations - the infinitely many algebraical relations satisfied by the solutions.07aDifferential equations2bicssc07aPartial differential equations2msc07aFluid mechanics2msc40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/021423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/kuksin_mini.jpg03168nam a22003495a 450000100100000000300120001000500170002200600190003900700150005800800410007302000180011402400210013204000140015307200170016708400150018424501310019926000820033030000340041233600260044633700260047233800360049834700240053450510210055850600650157952009420164465000210258665000460260770000300265370000380268385600320272185600650275333-091109CH-001817-320091109150325.0a fot |1| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa091109e20060110sz fot |1| 0|eng d a978303719511670a10.4171/0112doi ach0018173 7aPBWP2bicssc a37-xx2msc10aDynamics on the Riemann Sphereh[electronic resource] :bA Bodil Branner Festschrift /cPoul G.

After having covered basic analytic and algebraic aspects, putting special emphasis on explaining the interplay between algebraic and analytic formulas, they go on to some more specialized topics. These include the j-function from an algebraic and analytic perspective, a discussion of elliptic curves over finite fields, derivation of recursion formulas for the division polynomials, the algebraic structure of the torsion points of an elliptic curve, complex multiplication, and modular forms.
In an effort to motivate basic problems the book starts very slowly, but considers some aspects such as modular forms of higher level which are not usually treated. It presents more than 100 exercises and a
Mathematica™ notebook that treats a number of calculations involving elliptic curves.
The book is aimed at students of mathematics with a general interest in elliptic curves but also at students of computer science interested in their cryptographic aspects.07aAlgebraic geometry2bicssc07aConvex and discrete geometry2msc07aAlgebraic geometry2msc40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/015423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/ekedahl_mini.gif03450nam a22004335a 450000100100000000300120001000500170002200600190003900700150005800800410007302000180011402400210013204000140015307200170016707200170018407200170020108400360021824501180025426000820037230000340045433600260048833700260051433800360054034700240057649000670060050508380066750600650150552010290157065000470259965000350264665000660268165000310274765000400277865000240281865000450284270000310288785600320291885600660295032-091109CH-001817-320091109150325.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa091109e20050531sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719513070a10.4171/0132doi ach0018173 7aPBMP2bicssc 7aPBKJ2bicssc 7aPHTR2bicssc a53-xxa35-xxa81-xxa83-xx2msc10aAdS/CFT Correspondence: Einstein Metrics and Their Conformal Boundariesh[electronic resource] /cOlivier Biquard3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2005 a1 online resource (259 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aIRMA Lectures in Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (IRMA)v800tGeometric aspects of the AdS/CFT correspondence /rMichael T.

become one of the prime subjects of interest in string theory, as well as one of the main meeting points between theoretical physics and mathematics. On the physical side it provides a duality between a theory of quantum gravity and a field theory. The mathematical counterpart is the relation between Einstein metrics and their conformal boundaries. The correspondence has been intensively studied, and a lot of progress emerged from the confrontation of
viewpoints between mathematics and physics.
Written by leading experts and directed at research mathematicians and
theoretical physicists as well as graduate students, this volume gives an overview
of this important area both in theoretical physics and in mathematics. It contains survey articles giving a broad overview of the subject and of the main questions, as well as more specialized articles providing new insight both on the Riemannian side and on the Lorentzian side of the theory.07aDifferential & Riemannian geometry2bicssc07aDifferential equations2bicssc07aRelativistic quantum mechanics & quantum field theory2bicssc07aDifferential geometry2msc07aPartial differential equations2msc07aQuantum theory2msc07aRelativity and gravitational theory2msc1 aBiquard, Olivier,eeditor.40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/013423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/biquard_mini.jpg02540nam a22003015a 450000100100000000300120001000500170002200600190003900700150005800800410007302000180011402400210013204000140015307200150016710000300018224501050021226000820031730000330039933600260043233700260045833800360048434700240052050600650054452015060060965000240211585600320213985600670217134-091109CH-001817-320091109150325.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa091109e20050830sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719514770a10.4171/0142doi ach0018173 7aPB2bicssc1 aTrzeciak, Jerzy,eauthor.10aWriting Mathematical Papers in Englishh[electronic resource] :ba practical guide /cJerzy Trzeciak3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2005 a1 online resource (51 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda1 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aThis booklet is intended to provide practical help for authors of mathematical papers. It is written mainly for non-English speaking writers but should prove useful even to native speakers of English who are beginning their mathematical writing and may not yet have developed a command of the structure of mathematical discourse.
The first part provides a collection of ready-made sentences and expressions occurring in mathematical papers. The examples are divided into sections according to their use (in introductions, definitions, theorems, proofs, comments, references to the literature, acknowledgements, editorial correspondence and referee's reports). Typical errors are also pointed out.
The second part concerns selected problems of English grammar and usage, most often encountered by mathematical writers. Just as in the first part, an abundance of examples are presented, all of them taken from actual mathematical texts.
"The author has packed an awful lot in a few pages and has obviously been collecting his best (or worst) examples for a long time."

This is the first comprehensive textbook that provides a systematic and detailed analysis of initial and boundary value problems for differential-algebraic equations. The analysis is developed from the theory of linear constant coefficient systems via linear variable coefficient systems to general nonlinear systems. Further sections on control problems, generalized inverses of differential-algebraic operators, generalized solutions, and differential equations on manifolds complement the theoretical treatment of initial value problems. Two major classes of numerical methods for differential-algebraic equations (Runge--Kutta and BDF methods) are discussed and analyzed with respect to convergence and order. A chapter is devoted to index reduction methods that allow the numerical treatment of general differential-algebraic equations. The analysis and numerical solution of boundary value problems for differential-algebraic equations is presented, including multiple shooting and collocation methods. A survey of current software packages for differential-algebraic equations completes the text.
The book is addressed to graduate students and researchers in mathematics, engineering and sciences, as well as practitioners in industry. A prerequisite is a standard course on the numerical solution of ordinary differential equations. Numerous examples and exercises make the book suitable as a course textbook or for self-study.07aDifferential equations2bicssc07aNumerical analysis2bicssc07aOrdinary differential equations2msc07aNumerical analysis2msc1 aMehrmann, Volker,eauthor.40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/017423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/kunkel_mini.gif03017nam a22003735a 450000100100000000300120001000500170002200600190003900700150005800800410007302000180011402400210013204000140015307200170016708400360018410000310022024500690025126000820032030000340040233600260043633700260046233800360048834700240052449000390054850600650058752017020065265000340235465000400238865000380242865000420246665000360250885600320254485600670257637-091109CH-001817-320091109150325.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa091109e20060228sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719516170a10.4171/0162doi ach0018173 7aPBFD2bicssc a22-xxa12-xxa20-xxa43-xx2msc1 aStroppel, Markus,eauthor.10aLocally Compact Groupsh[electronic resource] /cMarkus Stroppel3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2006 a1 online resource (312 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aEMS Textbooks in Mathematics (ETB)1 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aLocally compact groups play an important role in many areas of mathematics as well as in physics. The class of locally compact groups admits a strong structure theory, which allows to reduce many problems to groups constructed in various ways from the additive group of real numbers, the classical linear groups and from finite groups. The book gives a systematic and detailed introduction to the highlights of that theory.
In the beginning, a review of fundamental tools from topology and the elementary theory of topological groups and transformation groups is presented. Completions, Haar integral, applications to linear representations culminating in the Peter–Weyl Theorem are treated. Pontryagin duality for locally compact Abelian groups forms a central topic of the book. Applications are given, including results about the structure of locally compact Abelian groups, and a structure theory for locally compact rings leading to the classification of locally compact fields. Topological semigroups are discussed in a separate chapter, with special attention to their relations to groups. The last chapter reviews results related to
Hilbert's Fifth Problem, with the focus on structural results for non-Abelian connected locally compact groups that can be derived using approximation by Lie groups.
The book is self-contained and is addressed to advanced undergraduate or graduate students in mathematics or physics. It can be used for one-semester courses on topological groups, on locally compact Abelian groups, or on topological algebra. Suggestions on course design are given in the preface. Each chapter is accompanied by a set of exercises that have been tested in classes.07aGroups & group theory2bicssc07aTopological groups, Lie groups2msc07aField theory and polynomials2msc07aGroup theory and generalizations2msc07aAbstract harmonic analysis2msc40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/016423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/stroppel_mini.jpg02547nam a22003975a 450000100100000000300120001000500170002200600190003900700150005800800410007302000180011402400210013204000140015307200160016707200170018308400220020010000350022224501550025726000820041230000340049433600260052833700260055433800360058034700240061649000480064050600650068852011000075365000370185365000240189065000530191465000200196770000300198770000320201785600320204985600680208144-091109CH-001817-320091109150325.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa091109e20070110sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719527770a10.4171/0272doi ach0018173 7aPBT2bicssc 7aPBWL2bicssc a60-xxa62-xx2msc1 adel Barrio, Eustasio,eauthor.10aLectures on Empirical Processesh[electronic resource] :bTheory and Statistical Applications /cEustasio del Barrio, Paul Deheuvels, Sara van de Geer3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2007 a1 online resource (263 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aEMS Series of Lectures in Mathematics (ELM)1 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aThe theory of empirical processes constitutes the mathematical toolbox of asymptotic statistics. Its growth was accelerated by the 1950s work on the Functional Central Limit Theorem and the Invariance Principle.
The theory has developed in parallel with statistical methodologies, and has been successfully applied to a large diversity of problems related to the asymptotic behaviour of statistical procedures.
The three sets of lecture notes in the book offer a wide panorama of contemporary empirical processes theory. Techniques are developed in the framework of probability in Banach spaces, Hungarian-style strong approximations,
using tools from general stochastic process theory. Other tools appear in this text in connection with historical as well as modern applications, such as goodness-of-fit tests, density estimation or general M-estimators.
This book gives an excellent overview of the broad scope of the theory of empirical processes. It will be an invaluable aid for students and researchers interested in an advanced and well-documented approach to the selected topics.07aProbability & statistics2bicssc07aStochastics2bicssc07aProbability theory and stochastic processes2msc07aStatistics2msc1 aDeheuvels, Paul,eauthor.1 avan de Geer, Sara,eauthor.40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/027423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/deheuvels_mini.jpg11512nam a22003735a 450000100100000000300120001000500170002200600190003900700150005800800410007302000180011402400210013204000140015307200150016708400150018224501820019726000820037930000350046133600260049633700260052233800360054834700240058450591560060850600650976452010540982965000241088365000171090770000321092470000281095670000321098470000281101685600321104485600621107639-091109CH-001817-320091109150325.0a fot 1|| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa091109e20070515sz fot 1|| 0|eng d a978303719522270a10.4171/0222doi ach0018173 7aPB2bicssc a00-xx2msc10aProceedings of the International Congress of Mathematicians Madrid, August 22–30, 2006h[electronic resource] /cMarta Sanz-Solé, Javier Soria, Juan Luis Varona, Joan Verdera3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2007 a1 online resource (4392 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda20tThe work of Andrei Okounkov /rGiovanni Felder --tThe work of Grigory Perelman /rJohn Lott --tThe work of Terence Tao /rCharles Fefferman --tThe work of Wendelin Werner /rCharles M.

The International Congress of Mathematicians (ICM) is held every four years. It is a major scientific event, bringing together mathematicians from all over the world, and demonstrating the vital role that mathematics play in our society. In particular, the Fields Medals are awarded to recognize outstanding mathematical achievement. At the same time, the International Mathematical Union awards the Nevanlinna Prize for work in the field of theoretical computer science.
The proceedings of ICM 2006, published as a three-volume set, present an overview of current research in all areas of mathematics and provide a permanent record the congress.
The first volume features the works of Fields Medallists and the Nevanlinna Prize winner, the plenary lectures, and the speeches and pictures of the opening and closing ceremonies and award sessions. The other two volumes present the invited lectures, arranged according to their mathematical subject.07aMathematics2bicssc07aGeneral2msc1 aSanz-Solé, Marta,eeditor.1 aSoria, Javier,eeditor.1 aVarona, Juan Luis,eeditor.1 aVerdera, Joan,eeditor.40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/022423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/ICM_mini.jpg02307nam a22003375a 450000100100000000300120001000500170002200600190003900700150005800800410007302000180011402400210013204000140015307200170016708400150018410000330019924500790023226000820031130000340039333600260042733700260045333800360047934700240051549000480053950600650058752011600065265000310181265000280184385600320187185600660190340-091109CH-001817-320091109150325.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa091109e20060510sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719523970a10.4171/0232doi ach0018173 7aPBPD2bicssc a55-xx2msc1 aMatveev, Sergey V.,eauthor.10aLectures on Algebraic Topologyh[electronic resource] /cSergey V.

by means of algebra. It is an important branch of modern mathematics
with a wide degree of applicability to other fields, including
geometric topology, differential geometry, functional analysis,
differential equations, algebraic geometry, number theory, and
theoretical physics.
This book provides an introduction to the basic concepts and methods
of algebraic topology for the beginner. It presents elements of
both homology theory and homotopy theory, and includes various
applications.
The author's intention is to rely on the geometric approach by
appealing to the reader's own intuition to help understanding. The
numerous illustrations in the text also serve this purpose. Two
features make the text different from the standard literature:
first, special attention is given to providing explicit algorithms
for calculating the homology groups and for manipulating the
fundamental groups. Second, the book contains many exercises, all of
which are supplied with hints or solutions. This makes the book suitable
for both classroom use and for independent study.07aAlgebraic topology2bicssc07aAlgebraic topology2msc40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/023423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/matveev_mini.jpg02702nam a22003855a 450000100100000000300120001000500170002200600190003900700150005800800410007302000180011402400210013204000140015307200170016707200170018408400290020110000340023024500920026426000820035630000340043833600260047233700260049833800360052434700240056049000480058450600650063252013070069765000470200465000660205165000480211765000290216565000240219485600320221885600660225041-091109CH-001817-320091109150325.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa091109e20060630sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719524670a10.4171/0242doi ach0018173 7aPBMP2bicssc 7aPHTR2bicssc a58-xxa46-xxa81-xx2msc1 aVárilly, Joseph C.,eauthor.10aAn Introduction to Noncommutative Geometryh[electronic resource] /cJoseph C.

Such metric geometries are described mathematically by Connes' theory of spectral triples. These lectures, delivered at an EMS Summer School on noncommutative geometry and its applications, provide an overview of spectral triples based on examples.
This introduction is aimed at graduate students of both mathematics and theoretical physics. It deals with Dirac operators on spin manifolds, noncommutative tori, Moyal quantization and tangent groupoids, action functionals, and isospectral deformations. The structural framework is the concept of a noncommutative spin geometry; the condiditons on spectral triples which determine this concept are developed in detail. The emphasis throughout is on gaining understanding by computing the details of specific examples.
The book provides a middle ground between a comprehensive text and a narrowly focused research monograph. It is intended for self-study, enabling the reader to gain access to the essentials of noncommutative geometry. New features since the original course are an expanded bibliography and a survey of more recent examples and applications of spectral triples.07aDifferential & Riemannian geometry2bicssc07aRelativistic quantum mechanics & quantum field theory2bicssc07aGlobal analysis, analysis on manifolds2msc07aFunctional analysis2msc07aQuantum theory2msc40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/024423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/varilly_mini.jpg02154nam a22003615a 450000100100000000300120001000500170002200600190003900700150005800800410007302000180011402400210013204000140015307200170016708400290018410000310021324500760024426000820032030000340040233600260043633700260046233800360048834700240052449000500054850600650059852008490066365000470151265000310155965000550159065000480164585600320169385600670172542-091109CH-001817-320091109150325.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa091109e20060710sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719525370a10.4171/0252doi ach0018173 7aPBMP2bicssc a53-xxa32-xxa58-xx2msc1 aBallmann, Werner,eauthor.10aLectures on Kähler Manifoldsh[electronic resource] /cWerner Ballmann3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2006 a1 online resource (182 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aESI Lectures in Mathematics and Physics (ESI)1 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aThese notes are based on lectures the author held at the University of Bonn and the Erwin-Schrödinger-Institute in Vienna. The aim is to give a thorough introduction to the theory of Kähler manifolds with special emphasis on the differential geometric side of Kähler geometry. The exposition starts with a short discussion of complex manifolds and holomorphic vector bundles and a detailed account of the basic differential geometric properties of Kähler manifolds. The more advanced topics are the cohomology of Kähler manifolds, Calabi conjecture, Gromov's Kähler hyperbolic spaces, and the Kodaira embedding theorem. Some familiarity with global analysis and partial differential equations is assumed, in particular in the part on the Calabi conjecture. There are appendices on Chern–Weil theory, symmetric spaces, and L2-cohomology.07aDifferential & Riemannian geometry2bicssc07aDifferential geometry2msc07aSeveral complex variables and analytic spaces2msc07aGlobal analysis, analysis on manifolds2msc40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/025423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/ballmann_mini.jpg03280nam a22003855a 450000100100000000300120001000500170002200600190003900700150005800800410007302000180011402400210013204000140015307200170016707200170018408400290020110000280023024500960025826000820035430000330043633600260046933700260049533800360052134700240055749000480058150600650062952019010069465000470259565000350264265000480267765000400272565000310276585600320279685600660282848-091109CH-001817-320091109150325.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa091109e20060830sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719530770a10.4171/0302doi ach0018173 7aPBMP2bicssc 7aPBKJ2bicssc a58-xxa35-xxa53-xx2msc1 aMüller, Reto,eauthor.10aDifferential Harnack Inequalities and the Ricci Flowh[electronic resource] /cReto Müller3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2006 a1 online resource (99 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aEMS Series of Lectures in Mathematics (ELM)1 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aThe classical Harnack inequalities play an important role in the
study of parabolic partial differential equations. The idea of
finding a differential version of such a classical Harnack
inequality goes back to Peter Li and Shing Tung Yau, who introduced
a pointwise gradient estimate for a solution of the linear heat
equation on a manifold which leads to a classical Harnack type
inequality if being integrated along a path. Their idea has been
successfully adopted and generalized to (nonlinear) geometric heat
flows such as mean curvature flow or Ricci flow; most of this work
was done by Richard Hamilton. In 2002, Grisha Perelman presented a
new kind of differential Harnack inequality which involves both the
(adjoint) linear heat equation and the Ricci flow. This led to a
completely new approach to the Ricci flow that allowed
interpretation as a gradient flow which maximizes different entropy
functionals. This approach forms the main analytic core of Perelman's
attempt to prove the Poincaré conjecture. It is, however, of
completely independent interest and may as well prove useful in various
other areas, such as, for instance, the theory of Kähler manifolds.
The goal of this book is to explain this analytic tool in full
detail for the two examples of the linear heat equation and the
Ricci flow. It begins with the original Li–Yau result, presents
Hamilton's Harnack inequalities for the Ricci flow, and ends with
Perelman's entropy formulas and space-time geodesics.
The text is a self-contained, modern introduction to the Ricci flow
and the analytic methods to study it. It is primarily addressed to
students who have a basic introductory knowledge of analysis and of
Riemannian geometry and who are attracted to further study in
geometric analysis. No previous knowledge of differential Harnack
inequalities or the Ricci flow is required.07aDifferential & Riemannian geometry2bicssc07aDifferential equations2bicssc07aGlobal analysis, analysis on manifolds2msc07aPartial differential equations2msc07aDifferential geometry2msc40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/030423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/mueller_mini.jpg02916nam a22004095a 450000100100000000300120001000500170002200600190003900700150005800800410007302000180011402400210013204000140015307200170016707200160018408400360020024500700023626000820030630000340038833600260042233700260044833800360047434700240051049000680053450506700060250600650127252008490133765000350218665000480222165000230226965000380229265000260233065000240235670000290238085600320240985600650244149-091109CH-001817-320091109150325.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa091109e20061012sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719528470a10.4171/0282doi ach0018173 7aPBRH2bicssc 7aPHT2bicssc a11-xxa52-xxa68-xxa81-xx2msc10aPhysics and Number Theoryh[electronic resource] /cLouise Nyssen3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2006 a1 online resource (274 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aIRMA Lectures in Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (IRMA)v1000tThe phase of oscillations and prime numbers: classical and quantum /rMichel Planat --tOn self-similar finitely generated uniformly discrete (SFU-)sets and sphere packings /rJean-Louis Verger-Gaugry --tNested quasicrystalline discretisations of the line /rJean-Pierre Gazeau, Zuzana Masáková, Edita Pelantová --tHopf algebras in renormalization theory: locality and Dyson–Schwinger equations from Hochschild cohomology /rChristoph Bergbauer, Dirk Kreimer --tFonction ζ et matrices aléatoires /rEmmanuel Royer --tSome recent applications of Kloostermania /rPhilippe Michel --tIntroduction à la correspondance de Langlands locale /rAriane Mézard.1 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aThere is a rich and historical relationship between theoretical physics and number theory.

These equations were among the first partial differential equations to be written down, but, after a lapse of two and a half centuries, we are still far from adequately understanding the observed phenomena which are supposed to lie within their domain of validity.
These phenomena include the formation and evolution of shocks in compressible fluids, the subject of the present monograph. The first work on shock formation was done by Riemann in 1858. However, his analysis was limited to the simplified case of one space dimension. Since then, several deep physical insights have been attained and new methods of mathematical analysis invented. Nevertheless, the theory of the formation and evolution of shocks in real three-dimensional fluids has remained up to this day fundamentally incomplete.
This monograph considers the relativistic Euler equations in three space dimensions for a perfect fluid with an arbitrary equation of state. We consider initial data for these equations which outside a sphere coincide with the data corresponding to a constant state. Under suitable restriction on the size of the initial departure from the constant state, we establish theorems that give a complete description of the maximal classical development. In particular, it is shown that the boundary of the domain of the maximal classical development has a singular part where the inverse density of the wave fronts vanishes, signalling shock formation. The theorems give a detailed description of the geometry of this singular boundary and a detailed analysis of the behavior of the solution there. A complete picture of shock formation in three-dimensional fluids is thereby obtained. The approach is geometric, the central concept being that of the acoustical spacetime manifold.
The monograph will be of interest to people working in partial differential equations in general and in fluid mechanics...07aDifferential equations2bicssc07aFluid mechanics2bicssc07aPartial differential equations2msc07aGlobal analysis, analysis on manifolds2msc07aFluid mechanics2msc40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/031423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/christodoulou2_mini.jpg02453nam a22003855a 450000100100000000300120001000500170002200600190003900700150005800800410007302000180011402400210013204000140015307200170016707200170018408400290020110000290023024500950025926000820035430000340043633600260047033700260049633800360052234700240055849000510058250600650063352010950069865000340179365000300182765000400185765000280189765000440192585600320196985600660200152-091109CH-001817-320091109150325.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa091109e20070303sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719534570a10.4171/0342doi ach0018173 7aPBFD2bicssc 7aPBMS2bicssc a16-xxa14-xxa70-xx2msc1 aEtingof, Pavel,eauthor.10aCalogero–Moser systems and representation theoryh[electronic resource] /cPavel Etingof3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2007 a1 online resource (101 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aZurich Lectures in Advanced Mathematics (ZLAM)1 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aCalogero–Moser systems, which were originally discovered
by specialists in integrable systems are currently at the crossroads
of many areas of mathematics and within the scope of interests of
many mathematicians. More specifically, these systems and their
generalizations turned out to have intrinsic connections with such fields
as algebraic geometry (Hilbert schemes of surfaces),
representation theory (double affine Hecke algebras, Lie groups, quantum
groups), deformation theory (symplectic reflection algebras),
homological algebra (Koszul algebras), Poisson geometry, etc. The goal of
the present lecture notes is to give an introduction
to the theory of Calogero–Moser systems, highlighting their
interplay with these fields. Since these lectures are designed
for non-experts, we give short introductions to each of the
subjects involved, and provide a number of exercises.
The book will be suitable for mathematics graduate students
and researchers in the areas of representation theory, noncommutative
algebra, algebraic geometry, and related areas.07aGroups & group theory2bicssc07aAnalytic geometry2bicssc07aAssociative rings and algebras2msc07aAlgebraic geometry2msc07aMechanics of particles and systems2msc40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/034423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/etingof_mini.jpg02620nam a22003735a 450000100100000000300120001000500170002200600190003900700150005800800410007302000180011402400210013204000140015307200160016708400220018310000300020524502230023526000820045830000350054033600260057533700260060133800360062734700240066349000430068750600650073052011950079565000260199065000230201665000380203970000380207770000320211585600320214785600670217953-091109CH-001817-320091109150325.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa091109e20070404sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719538370a10.4171/0382doi ach0018173 7aPBR2bicssc a11-xxa12-xx2msc1 aIwaniec, Henryk,eauthor.10aAndrzej Schinzel, Selectah[electronic resource] :bVolume I: Diophantine Problems and Polynomials Volume II: Elementary, Analytic and Geometric Number Theory /cHenryk Iwaniec, Władysław Narkiewicz, Jerzy Urbanowicz3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2007 a1 online resource (1417 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aHeritage of European Mathematics (HEM)1 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aAndrzej Schinzel, born in 1937, is a leading number theorist whose
work has a lasting impact on modern mathematics. He is the author of
over 200 research articles in various branches of arithmetics,
including elementary, analytic and algebraic number theory. He has
also been, for nearly 40 years, the editor of Acta Arithmetica,
the first international journal devoted exclusively to number
theory.
These Selecta contain Schinzel's most important articles published
between 1955 and 2006. The arrangement is by topic, with each major
category introduced by an expert's comment. Many of the hundred
selected papers deal with arithmetical and algebraic properties of
polynomials in one or several variables, but there are also articles
on Euler's totient function, the favorite subject of Schinzel's early
research, on prime numbers (including the famous paper with Sierpiński
on
the Hypothesis “H”), algebraic number theory, diophantine
equations, analytical number theory and geometry of numbers. Volume

on Lorentzian manifolds (for vector-bundle valued fields). After a
collection of preliminary material in the first chapter one finds in the second
chapter the construction of local fundamental solutions together with their
Hadamard expansion. The third chapter establishes the existence and uniqueness
of global fundamental solutions on globally hyperbolic spacetimes and discusses
Green's operators and well-posedness of the Cauchy problem. The last chapter is
devoted to field quantization in the sense of algebraic quantum field theory.
The necessary basics on C*-algebras and CCR-representations are developed
in full detail.
The text provides a self-contained introduction to these topics
addressed to graduate students in mathematics and physics. At the
same time it is intended as a reference for researchers in global
analysis, general relativity, and quantum field theory.07aDifferential & Riemannian geometry2bicssc07aDifferential equations2bicssc07aGlobal analysis, analysis on manifolds2msc07aPartial differential equations2msc07aDifferential geometry2msc1 aGinoux, Nicolas,eauthor.1 aPfäffle, Frank,eauthor.40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/037423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/baer_mini.jpg02630nam a22003735a 450000100100000000300120001000500170002200600190003900700150005800800410007302000180011402400210013204000140015307200170016707200170018408400220020110000260022324500760024926000820032530000340040733600260044133700260046733800360049334700240052949000390055350600650059252013910065765000310204865000320207965000200211165000290213185600320216085600640219259-091109CH-001817-320091109150325.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa091109e20070806sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719539070a10.4171/0392doi ach0018173 7aPBMW2bicssc 7aPBKG2bicssc a19-xxa46-xx2msc1 aMeyer, Ralf,eauthor.10aLocal and Analytic Cyclic Homologyh[electronic resource] /cRalf Meyer3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2007 a1 online resource (368 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aEMS Tracts in Mathematics (ETM)v31 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aPeriodic cyclic homology is a homology theory for non-commutative algebras
that plays a similar role in non-commutative geometry as de Rham
cohomology for smooth manifolds. While it produces good results for
algebras of smooth or polynomial functions, it fails for bigger
algebras such as most Banach algebras or C*-algebras. Analytic
and local cyclic homology are variants of periodic cyclic homology
that work better for such algebras. In this book the author
develops and compares these theories, emphasising their homological
properties. This includes the excision theorem, invariance under
passage to certain dense subalgebras, a Universal Coefficient
Theorem that relates them to K-theory, and the Chern–Connes
character for K-theory and K-homology.
The cyclic homology theories studied in this text require a good
deal of functional analysis in bornological vector spaces, which is
supplied in the first chapters. The focal points here are the
relationship with inductive systems and the functional calculus in
non-commutative bornological algebras.
The book is mainly intended for researchers and advanced graduate
students interested in non-commutative geometry. Some chapters are
more elementary and independent of the rest of the book, and will
be of interest to researchers and students working in functional
analysis and its applications.07aAlgebraic geometry2bicssc07aFunctional analysis2bicssc07a$K$-theory2msc07aFunctional analysis2msc40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/039423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/meyer_mini.jpg04478nam a22003615a 450000100100000000300120001000500170002200600190003900700150005800800410007302000180011402400210013204000140015307200170016708400220018424500940020626000820030030000340038233600260041633700260044233800360046834700240050449000680052850515700059650600650216652016260223165000290385765000410388665000550392770000370398285600320401985600650405155-091109CH-001817-320091109150325.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa091109e20070525sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719529170a10.4171/0292doi ach0018173 7aPBKD2bicssc a30-xxa32-xx2msc10aHandbook of Teichmüller Theory, Volume Ih[electronic resource] /cAthanase Papadopoulos3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2007 a1 online resource (802 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aIRMA Lectures in Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (IRMA)v1100tIntroduction to Teichmüller theory, old and new /rAthanase Papadopoulos --tHarmonic maps and Teichmüller theory /rGeorgios D.

Teichmüller
in the 1930s. It is a basic tool in the study of Riemann's moduli
space and of the mapping class group. These objects are fundamental
in several fields of mathematics including algebraic geometry,
number theory, topology, geometry, and dynamics.
The original setting of Teichmüller theory is complex analysis.
The work of Thurston in the 1970s brought techniques of hyperbolic
geometry in the study of Teichmüller space and of its asymptotic
geometry. Teichmüller spaces are also studied from the point of view
of the representation theory of the fundamental group of the surface
in a Lie group G, most notably G = PSL(2,ℝ) and G = PSL(2,ℂ).
In the 1980s, there evolved an essentially combinatorial treatment of
the Teichmüller and moduli spaces involving techniques and ideas
from high-energy physics, namely from string theory. The current
research interests include the quantization of Teichmüller space, the
Weil–Petersson symplectic and Poisson geometry of this space as well
as gauge-theoretic extensions of these structures. The quantization
theories can lead to new invariants of hyperbolic 3-manifolds.
The purpose of this handbook is to give a panorama of some of
the most important aspects of Teichmüller theory. The handbook
should be useful to specialists in the field, to graduate students,
and more generally to mathematicians who want to learn about the
subject. All the chapters are self-contained and have a pedagogical
character. They are written by leading experts in the subject.07aComplex analysis2bicssc07aFunctions of a complex variable2msc07aSeveral complex variables and analytic spaces2msc1 aPapadopoulos, Athanase,eeditor.40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/029423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/irma11_mini.jpg02334nam a22003495a 450000100100000000300120001000500170002200600190003900700150005800800410007302000180011402400210013204000140015307200170016708400150018410000390019924501470023826000820038530000340046733600260050133700260052733800360055334700240058949000390061350600650065252010570071765000350177465000400180970000310184985600320188085600720191256-091109CH-001817-320091109150325.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa091109e20070531sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719533870a10.4171/0332doi ach0018173 7aPBKJ2bicssc a35-xx2msc1 aDaskalopoulos, Panagiota,eauthor.10aDegenerate Diffusionsh[electronic resource] :bInitial Value Problems and Local Regularity Theory /cPanagiota Daskalopoulos, Carlos E.

Such models arise in plasma physics, diffusions through porous media, thin liquid film dynamics as well as in geometric flows such as the Ricci flow on surfaces and the Yamabe flow. The approach presented to these problems is through the use of local regularity estimates and Harnack type inequalities, which yield compactness for families of solutions. The theory is quite complete in the slow diffusion case (m > 1) and in the supercritical fast diffusion case (mc < m < 1, mc = (n – 2)+/n) while many problems remain in the range m ≤ mc. All of these aspects of the theory are discussed in the book.
The book is addressed to both researchers and to graduate students with a good background in analysis and some previous exposure to partial differential equations.07aDifferential equations2bicssc07aPartial differential equations2msc1 aKenig, Carlos E.,eauthor.40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/033423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/daskalopoulos_mini.jpg03271nam a22003495a 450000100100000000300120001000500170002200600190003900700150005800800410007302000180011402400210013204000140015307200160016708400150018310000310019824502040022926000820043330000340051533600260054933700260057533800360060134700240063749000390066150600650070052019650076565000210273065000400275170000320279185600320282385600660285557-091109CH-001817-320091109150325.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa091109e20070531sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719532170a10.4171/0322doi ach0018173 7aPBP2bicssc a22-xx2msc1 aHofmann, Karl H.,eauthor.10aThe Lie Theory of Connected Pro-Lie Groupsh[electronic resource] :bA Structure Theory for Pro-Lie Algebras, Pro-Lie Groups, and Connected Locally Compact Groups /cKarl H.

A century later Jean Dieudonné quipped that Lie groups had moved to the center of mathematics and that one cannot undertake anything without them.
If a complete topological group G can be approximated by Lie groups in
the sense that every identity neighborhood U of G
contains a
normal subgroup N such that G/N is a Lie group,
then it is called a pro-Lie group.
Every locally compact connected topological group and every
compact group is a pro-Lie group.
While the class of locally compact groups is not closed under the
formation
of arbitrary products, the class of pro-Lie groups is.
For half a century, locally compact pro-Lie groups have drifted
through the literature, yet this is the first book which
systematically treats the Lie and structure theory of pro-Lie groups
irrespective of local compactness. This study fits very well into
that current trend which addresses infinite dimensional Lie groups.
The results of this text are based on a theory of pro-Lie algebras
which parallels the structure theory of finite dimensional real Lie
algebras to an astonishing degree even though it has to overcome
greater technical obstacles.
This book exposes a Lie theory of connected pro-Lie groups (and hence of connected locally compact groups) and illuminates the manifold ways in which their structure theory reduces to that of compact groups on the one hand and of finite dimensional Lie groups on the other. It is a continuation of the authors' fundamental monograph on the structure of compact groups (1998, 2006), and is an invaluable tool for researchers in topological groups, Lie theory, harmonic analysis and representation theory. It is written to be accessible to advanced graduate students wishing to study this fascinating and important area of current research, which has so many fruitful interactions with other fields of mathematics.07aTopology2bicssc07aTopological groups, Lie groups2msc1 aMorris, Sidney A.,eauthor.40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/032423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/hofmann_mini.jpg02809nam a22003615a 450000100100000000300120001000500170002200600190003900700150005800800410007302000180011402400210013204000140015307200170016708400220018410000290020624500940023526000820032930000340041133600260044533700260047133800360049734700240053349000400055750600650059752015570066265000470221965000180226665000310228470000320231585600320234785600680237958-091109CH-001817-320091109150325.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa091109e20070524sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719536970a10.4171/0362doi ach0018173 7aPBMP2bicssc a51-xxa53-xx2msc1 aBuyalo, Sergei,eauthor.10aElements of Asymptotic Geometryh[electronic resource] /cSergei Buyalo, Viktor Schroeder3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2007 a1 online resource (212 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aEMS Monographs in Mathematics (EMM)1 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aAsymptotic geometry is the study of metric spaces from a large scale point of view, where the local geometry does not come into play. An important class of model spaces are the hyperbolic spaces (in the sense of Gromov), for which the asymptotic geometry is nicely encoded in the boundary at infinity.
In the first part of this book, in analogy with the
concepts of classical hyperbolic geometry, the authors provide a systematic
account of the basic theory
of Gromov hyperbolic spaces. These spaces have been studied extensively
in the last twenty years, and have found applications in group theory,
geometric topology, Kleinian groups, as well as dynamics and rigidity theory.
In the second part of the book, various
aspects of the asymptotic geometry of arbitrary metric spaces are considered.
It turns out that the boundary at infinity approach is not appropriate in the general case,
but dimension theory proves useful for finding interesting results and applications.
The text leads concisely to some central aspects of the theory. Each chapter concludes with a separate section containing supplementary results and bibliographical notes. Here the theory is also illustrated with numerous examples as well as relations to the neighboring fields of comparison geometry and geometric group theory.
The book is based on lectures the authors presented at the Steklov Institute in St. Petersburg and the University of Zurich.

importance to numerous areas of application, including insurance,
banking, energy, medicine, reliability. Mainly motivated by examples
from insurance and finance, the authors develop a theory for
handling multivariate extremes. The approach borrows ideas from
portfolio theory and aims at an intuitive approach in the spirit of
the Peaks over Thresholds method. The point of view is geometric. It
leads to a probabilistic description of what in QRM language may be
referred to as a high risk scenario: the conditional behaviour of
risk factors given that a large move on a linear combination
(portfolio, say) has been observed. The theoretical models which
describe such conditional extremal behaviour are characterized and
their relation to the limit theory for coordinatewise maxima is
explained.
The first part is an elegant exposition of coordinatewise extreme
value theory; the second half develops the more basic geometric
theory. Besides a precise mathematical deduction of the main
results, the text yields numerous discussions of a more applied
nature. A twenty page preview introduces the key concepts; the
extensive introduction provides links to financial mathematics and
insurance theory.
The book is based on a graduate course on point processes and
extremes. It could form the basis for an advanced course on
multivariate extreme value theory or a course on mathematical issues
underlying risk. Students in statistics and finance with a
mathematical, quantitative background are the prime audience.

These problems are defined on spaces of d-variate functions and
d can be huge – in the hundreds or even in the thousands.
Some high-dimensional problems can be solved efficiently to within ε,
i.e., the cost increases polynomially in ε−1 and d.
However, there are many multivariate problems
for which even the minimal cost increases exponentially in d.
This exponential dependence on d is called
intractability or the curse of dimensionality.
This is the first of a three-volume set comprising a comprehensive study of the
tractability of multivariate problems.
It is devoted to algorithms using
linear information consisting of arbitrary linear functionals.
The theory for multivariate problems is developed
in various settings: worst case, average case, randomized and
probabilistic. A problem is tractable if its minimal cost is not
exponential in ε−1 and d. There are various notions of
tractability,
depending on how we measure the lack of exponential dependence.
For example, a problem is polynomially tractable if its minimal cost is
polynomial in ε−1 and d. The study of tractability was
initiated about 15 years ago. This is the first research
monograph on this subject.
Many multivariate problems suffer from the curse of dimensionality
when they are defined over classical (unweighted) spaces.
But many
practically important problems are solved today for huge d in a
reasonable time. One of the most intriguing challenges of theory is to
understand why this is possible. Multivariate problems may become tractable
if they are defined over weighted spaces with properly
decaying weights. In this case, all variables and groups of variables
are moderated by weights. The main purpose of this book is to study weighted spaces
and to obtain conditions on the weights that are necessary and sufficient
to achieve various notions of tractability.

boundary value problems on manifolds with singularities. The
Zaremba problem with a jump between Dirichlet
and Neumann conditions along an interface on the boundary is a classical example. The central
theme of this book is to study mixed problems in standard Sobolev
spaces as well as in weighted edge spaces where the interfaces are interpreted as edges.
Parametrices and regularity of solutions are obtained within a systematic
calculus of boundary value problems on manifolds with conical or edge
singularities. This calculus allows singularities on the interface, and homotopies between
mixed and crack problems. Additional edge conditions are computed in terms
of relative index results. In a detailed final chapter, the intuitive ideas of the approach are
illustrated, and there is a discussion of future challenges. A special feature of
the text is the inclusion of many worked out examples which help the
reader to appreciate the scope of the theory and to treat new cases of practical interest.
This book is addressed to mathematicians and physicists interested
in models with singularities, associated boundary value problems,
and their solvability strategies based on pseudo-differential operators.
The material is also useful for
students in higher semesters and young researchers, as well as for
experienced specialists working in analysis on manifolds with
geometric singularities, the applications of index theory and
spectral theory, operator algebras with symbolic structures,
quantisation, and asymptotic analysis.07aDifferential equations2bicssc07aPartial differential equations2msc1 aSchulze, B.-Wolfgang,eauthor.40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/040423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/schulze_mini.jpg02420nam a22003615a 450000100100000000300120001000500170002200600190003900700150005800800410007302000180011402400210013204000140015307200170016708400220018410000350020624501140024126000820035530000340043733600260047133700260049733800360052334700240055949000390058350600650062252011410068765000350182865000400186365000290190370000280193285600320196085600660199265-091109CH-001817-320091109150325.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa091109e20071121sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719542070a10.4171/0422doi ach0018173 7aPBKJ2bicssc a35-xxa46-xx2msc1 aHaroske, Dorothee D.,eauthor.10aDistributions, Sobolev Spaces, Elliptic Equationsh[electronic resource] /cDorothee D.

densities is a pearl of geometric measure theory. The difficult proof,
due to Preiss, relies on many beautiful and deep ideas and novel
techniques. Some of them have already proven useful in other contexts,
whereas others have not yet been exploited. These notes give a simple
and short presentation of the former, and provide some perspective of
the latter.
This text emerged from a course on rectifiability given at the
University of Zürich. It is addressed both to researchers and students,
the only prerequisite is a solid knowledge in standard measure theory.
The first four chapters give an introduction to rectifiable sets and
measures in euclidean spaces, covering classical topics such as the area
formula, the theorem of Marstrand and the most elementary rectifiability
criterions. The fifth chapter is dedicated to a subtle rectifiability
criterion due to Marstrand and generalized by Mattila, and the last
three focus on Preiss' result. The aim is to provide a self-contained
reference for anyone interested in an overview of this fascinating topic.07aFunctional analysis2bicssc07aCalculus of variations2bicssc07aMeasure and integration2msc07aReal functions2msc07aCalculus of variations and optimal control; optimization2msc40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/044423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/delellis_mini.jpg02771nam a22003615a 450000100100000000300120001000500170002200600190003900700150005800800410007302000180011402400210013204000140015307200170016707200150018408400150019910000360021424500850025026000820033530000340041733600260045133700260047733800360050334700240053949000480056350600650061152015320067665000470220865000240225565000310227985600320231085600670234276-091109CH-001817-320091109150325.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa091109e20080408sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719550570a10.4171/0502doi ach0018173 7aPBMP2bicssc 7aPB2bicssc a53-xx2msc1 aTaimanov, Iskander A.,eauthor.10aLectures on Differential Geometryh[electronic resource] /cIskander A.

Like modern analysis itself, differential geometry originates in classical
mechanics. For instance, geodesics and minimal surfaces are defined via
variational principles and the curvature of a curve is easily interpreted as
the acceleration with respect to the path length parameter. Modern
differential geometry in its turn strongly contributed to modern physics.
This book gives an introduction to the basics of differential geometry, keeping
in mind the natural origin of many geometrical quantities, as well as
the applications of differential geometry and its methods to other sciences.
The text is divided into three parts. The first part covers the basics of curves
and surfaces, while the second part is designed as an introduction to smooth
manifolds and Riemannian geometry. In particular, Chapter 5 contains short
introductions to hyperbolic geometry and geometrical principles of special
relativity theory. Here, only a basic knowledge of algebra, calculus and ordinary
differential equations is required. The third part is more advanced and
introduces into matrix Lie groups and Lie algebras, representation theory of
groups, symplectic and Poisson geometry, and applications of complex analysis
in surface theory.
The book is based on lectures the author held repeatedly at Novosibirsk State
University. It is addressed to students as well as to anyone who wants to learn
the basics of differential geometry.07aDifferential & Riemannian geometry2bicssc07aMathematics2bicssc07aDifferential geometry2msc40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/050423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/taimanov_mini.jpg02836nam a22003615a 450000100100000000300120001000500170002200600190003900700150005800800410007302000180011402400210013204000140015307200170016708400290018410000280021324500830024126000820032430000340040633600260044033700260046633800360049234700240052849000390055250600650059152015910065665000320224765000290227965000330230865000260234185600320236785600750239984-091109CH-001817-320091109150325.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa091109e20080902sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719519270a10.4171/0192doi ach0018173 7aPBKG2bicssc a46-xxa28-xxa42-xx2msc1 aTriebel, Hans,eauthor.10aFunction Spaces and Wavelets on Domainsh[electronic resource] /cHans Triebel3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2008 a1 online resource (265 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aEMS Tracts in Mathematics (ETM)v71 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aWavelets have emerged as an important tool in analyzing functions
containing discontinuities and sharp spikes. They were developed
independently in the fields of mathematics, quantum physics, electrical
engineering, and seismic geology. Interchanges between these fields
during the last ten years have led to many new wavelet applications such
as image compression, turbulence, human vision, radar, earthquake
prediction, and pure mathematics applications such as solving partial
differential equations.
This book develops a theory of wavelet bases and wavelet frames for function spaces on various
types of domains. Starting with the usual spaces on Euclidean spaces and their periodic counterparts, the
exposition moves on to so-called thick domains (including Lipschitz
domains and snowflake domains). Especially, wavelet expansions and
extensions to corresponding spaces on Euclidean n-spaces are
developed. Finally, spaces on smooth and cellular domains and related
manifolds are treated.
Although the presentation relies on the recent theory of function spaces, basic notation and classical results are
repeated in order to make the text self-contained.
The book is addressed to two types of readers:
researchers in the theory of function spaces who are interested in wavelets as new effective building blocks for functions, and scientists who wish to use wavelet bases in classical function spaces for various applications.
Adapted to the second type of readers, the preface contains a guide to where one finds basic definitions and key
assertions.07aFunctional analysis2bicssc07aFunctional analysis2msc07aMeasure and integration2msc07aFourier analysis2msc40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/019423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/triebel(Tracts7)_mini.jpg02453nam a22003495a 450000100100000000300120001000500170002200600190003900700150005800800410007302000180011402400210013204000140015307200170016708400220018410000310020624500970023726000820033430000340041633600260045033700260047633800360050234700240053849000390056250600650060152012410066665000310190765000280193865000380196685600320200485600670203686-091109CH-001817-320091109150325.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa091109e20080901sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719548270a10.4171/0482doi ach0018173 7aPBPD2bicssc a55-xxa57-xx2msc1 atom Dieck, Tammo,eauthor.10aAlgebraic Topologyh[electronic resource] :bCorrected 2nd printing, 2010 /cTammo tom Dieck3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2008 a1 online resource (578 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aEMS Textbooks in Mathematics (ETB)1 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aThis book is written as a textbook on algebraic topology. The first part covers the material for two introductory courses about homotopy and homology. The second part presents more advanced applications and concepts (duality, characteristic classes, homotopy groups of spheres, bordism). The author recommends to start an introductory course with homotopy theory. For this purpose, classical results are presented with new elementary proofs. Alternatively, one could start more traditionally with singular and axiomatic homology. Additional chapters are devoted to the geometry of manifolds, cell complexes and fibre bundles. A special feature is the rich supply of nearly 500 exercises and problems. Several sections include topics which have not appeared before in textbooks as well as simplified proofs for some important results.
Prerequisites are standard point set topology (as recalled in the first chapter), elementary algebraic notions (modules, tensor product), and some terminology from category theory. The aim of the book is to introduce advanced undergraduate and graduate (masters) students to basic tools, concepts and results of algebraic topology. Sufficient background material from geometry and algebra is included.07aAlgebraic topology2bicssc07aAlgebraic topology2msc07aManifolds and cell complexes2msc40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/048423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/tomDieck_mini.jpg02372nam a22003375a 450000100100000000300120001000500170002200600190003900700150005800800410007302000180011402400210013204000140015307200170016708400150018410000330019924501530023226000820038530000340046733600260050133700260052733800360055334700240058949000390061350600650065252011550071765000320187265000290190485600320193385600690196572-091109CH-001817-320091109150325.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa091109e20080228sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719543770a10.4171/0432doi ach0018173 7aPBKG2bicssc a46-xx2msc1 aTimmermann, Thomas,eauthor.10aAn Invitation to Quantum Groups and Dualityh[electronic resource] :bFrom Hopf Algebras to Multiplicative Unitaries and Beyond /cThomas Timmermann3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2008 a1 online resource (427 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aEMS Textbooks in Mathematics (ETB)1 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aThis book provides an introduction to the theory of quantum groups
with emphasis on their duality and on the setting of operator algebras.
Part I of the text presents the basic theory of Hopf algebras, Van
Daele’s duality theory of algebraic quantum groups, and Woronowicz’s
compact quantum groups, staying in a purely algebraic setting.
Part II focuses on quantum groups in the setting of operator algebras.
Woronowicz’s compact quantum groups are treated in the setting of
C*-algebras, and the fundamental multiplicative unitaries of Baaj and
Skandalis are studied in detail. An outline of Kustermans’ and Vaes’
comprehensive theory of locally compact quantum groups completes
this part. Part III leads to selected topics, such as coactions,
Baaj–Skandalis-duality, and approaches to quantum groupoids in the
setting of operator algebras.
The book is addressed to graduate students and non-experts from other

finite group theory, including sporadic groups;
combinatorial and geometric group theory, including the Bass–Serre theory of groups acting on trees;
the theory of train tracks by Bestvina and Handel for automorphisms of free groups.
With its many examples, exercises, and full solutions to selected exercises, this text provides a gentle introduction that is ideal for self-study and an excellent preparation for applications. A distinguished feature of the presentation is that algebraic and geometric techniques are balanced. The beautiful theory of train tracks is illustrated by two nontrivial examples.
Presupposing only a basic knowledge of algebra, the book is addressed to anyone interested in group theory: from advanced undergraduate and graduate students to specialists.07aGroups & group theory2bicssc07aGroup theory and generalizations2msc40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/041423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/bogopolski_mini.jpg02472nam a22003495a 450000100100000000300120001000500170002200600190003900700150005800800410007302000180011402400210013204000140015307200160016708400150018310000300019824501180022826000820034630000340042833600260046233700260048833800360051434700240055049000390057450600650061352012180067865000450189665000550194170000270199685600320202385600670205575-091109CH-001817-320091109150325.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa091109e20080303sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719549970a10.4171/0492doi ach0018173 7aPBK2bicssc a32-xx2msc1 aJarnicki, Marek,eauthor.10aFirst Steps in Several Complex Variables: Reinhardt Domainsh[electronic resource] /cMarek Jarnicki, Peter Pflug3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2008 a1 online resource (367 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aEMS Textbooks in Mathematics (ETB)1 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aThis book provides a comprehensive introduction to the field of several complex variables in the setting of a very special but basic class of domains, the so-called Reinhardt domains. In this way the reader may learn much about this area without encountering too many technical difficulties.
Chapter 1 describes the fundamental notions and the phenomenon of simultaneous holomorphic extension. Chapter 2 presents a fairly complete discussion of biholomorphisms of bounded (complete) Reinhardt domains in the two dimensional case. The third chapter gives a classification of Reinhardt domains of existence for the most important classes of holomorphic functions. The last chapter deals with invariant functions and gives explicit calculations of many of them on certain Reinhardt domains. Numerous exercises are included to help the readers with their understanding of the material. Further results and open problems are added which may be useful as seminar topics.
The primary aim of this book is to introduce students or non-experts to some of the main research areas in several complex variables. The book provides a friendly invitation to this field as the only prerequisite is a basic knowledge of analysis.07aCalculus & mathematical analysis2bicssc07aSeveral complex variables and analytic spaces2msc1 aPflug, Peter,eauthor.40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/049423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/jarnicki_mini.jpg03194nam a22003615a 450000100100000000300120001000500170002200600190003900700150005800800410007302000180011402400210013204000140015307200160016708400290018310000320021224501320024426000820037630000340045833600260049233700260051833800360054434700240058049000390060450600650064352018800070865000370258865000530262565000360267865000200271485600320273485600660276677-091109CH-001817-320091109150325.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa091109e20080429sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719545170a10.4171/0452doi ach0018173 7aPBT2bicssc a60-xxa43-xxa62-xx2msc1 aFeldman, Gennadiy,eauthor.10aFunctional Equations and Characterization Problems on Locally Compact Abelian Groupsh[electronic resource] /cGennadiy Feldman3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2008 a1 online resource (268 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aEMS Tracts in Mathematics (ETM)v51 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aThis book deals with the characterization of probability distributions. It is well
known that both the sum and the difference of two Gaussian independent
random variables with equal variance are independent as well. The converse statement was
proved independently by M. Kac and S. N. Bernstein. This result is a famous
example of a characterization theorem. In general, characterization problems
in mathematical statistics are statements in which the description of possible
distributions of random variables follows from properties of some functions in
these variables.
In recent years, a great deal of attention has been focused upon generalizing
the classical characterization theorems to random variables with values in
various algebraic structures such as locally compact Abelian groups, Lie
groups, quantum groups, or symmetric spaces. The present book is aimed at
the generalization of some well-known characterization theorems to the case
of independent random variables taking values in a locally compact Abelian
group X. The main attention is paid to the characterization of the Gaussian
and the idempotent distribution (group analogs of the Kac–Bernstein,
Skitovich–Darmois, and Heyde theorems). The solution of the corresponding
problems is reduced to the solution of some functional equations in the
class of continuous positive definite functions defined on the character group
of X. Group analogs of the Cramér and Marcinkiewicz theorems are also
studied.
The author is an expert in algebraic probability theory. His comprehensive
and self-contained monograph is addressed to mathematicians working in
probability theory on algebraic structures, abstract harmonic analysis,
and functional equations. The book concludes with comments and unsolved
problems that provide further stimulation for future research in the theory.07aProbability & statistics2bicssc07aProbability theory and stochastic processes2msc07aAbstract harmonic analysis2msc07aStatistics2msc40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/045423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/feldman_mini.jpg02975nam a22003735a 450000100100000000300120001000500170002200600190003900700150005800800410007302000180011402400210013204000140015307200170016707200160018408400220020010000300022224500800025226000820033230000340041433600260044833700260047433800360050034700240053649000510056050600650061152016770067665000300235365000350238365000480241865000380246685600320250485600650253678-091109CH-001817-320091109150325.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa091109e20080819sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719554370a10.4171/0542doi ach0018173 7aPBPH2bicssc 7aTGB2bicssc a58-xxa57-xx2msc1 aFarber, Michael,eauthor.10aInvitation to Topological Roboticsh[electronic resource] /cMichael Farber3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2008 a1 online resource (143 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aZurich Lectures in Advanced Mathematics (ZLAM)1 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aThe book discusses several selected topics of a new emerging area of research lying on the interface between topology and engineering. The first main topic of the book is topology of configuration spaces of mechanical linkages. These manifolds arise in various fields of mathematics and in other sciences, e.g. engineering, statistics, molecular biology. To compute Betti numbers of these configuration spaces we apply a new technique of Morse theory in the presence of an involution. A significant result of topology of linkages presented in the book is a solution of a conjecture of Kevin Walker which states that the relative sizes of bars of a linkage are determined, up to certain equivalence, by the cohomology algebra of the linkage configuration space. The book also describes a new probabilistic approach to topology of linkages which treats the bar lengths as random variables and studies mathematical expectations of Betti numbers. The second main topic of the book is topology of configuration spaces associated to polyhedra. The book gives an account of a beautiful work of S.R. Gal suggesting an explicit formula for the generating function encoding Euler characteristics of these spaces. Next we study the knot theory of a robot arm focusing on a recent important result of R. Connelly, E. Demain and G. Rote. Finally, the book investigates topological problems arising in the theory of robot motion planning algorithms and studies the homotopy invariant TC(X) measuring navigational complexity of configuration spaces.
The book is intended as an appetizer and will introduce the reader to many fascinating topological problems motivated by engineering.07aAnalytic topology2bicssc07aMechanical engineering2bicssc07aGlobal analysis, analysis on manifolds2msc07aManifolds and cell complexes2msc40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/054423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/farber_mini.jpg02337nam a22003855a 450000100100000000300120001000500170002200600190003900700150005800800410007302000180011402400210013204000140015307200170016707200170018408400290020110000340023024500770026426000820034130000340042333600260045733700260048333800360050934700240054549000510056950600650062052010190068565000280170465000360173265000380176865000230180665000230182985600320185285600670188479-091109CH-001817-320091109150325.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa091109e20080901sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719552970a10.4171/0522doi ach0018173 7aPBMZ2bicssc 7aPBRD2bicssc a52-xxa05-xxa11-xx2msc1 aBarvinok, Alexander,eauthor.10aInteger Points in Polyhedrah[electronic resource] /cAlexander Barvinok3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2008 a1 online resource (199 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aZurich Lectures in Advanced Mathematics (ZLAM)1 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aThis is a self-contained exposition of several core aspects of the theory of rational polyhedra
with a view towards algorithmic applications to efficient counting of integer points,
a problem arising in many areas of pure and applied mathematics. The approach is based
on the consistent development and application of the apparatus of generating functions
and the algebra of polyhedra. Topics range from classical, such as the Euler characteristic,
continued fractions, Ehrhart polynomial, Minkowski Convex Body Theorem, and the Lenstra–
Lenstra–Lovász lattice reduction algorithm, to recent advances such as the Berline–Vergne
local formula.
The text is intended for graduate students and researchers. Prerequisites are a modest background in linear algebra and analysis as well as some general mathematical maturity. Numerous figures, exercises of varying degree of difficulty as well as references to the literature and publicly available software make the text suitable for a graduate course.07aFinite geometry2bicssc07aAlgebraic number theory2bicssc07aConvex and discrete geometry2msc07aCombinatorics2msc07aNumber theory2msc40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/052423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/barvinok_mini.jpg02429nam a22003495a 450000100100000000300120001000500170002200600190003900700150005800800410007302000180011402400210013204000140015307200170016708400150018424500630019926000820026230000340034433600260037833700260040433800360043034700240046649000680049050502920055850600650085052009740091565000340188965000240192370000330194785600320198085600670201280-091109CH-001817-320091109150325.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa091109e20080611sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719547570a10.4171/0472doi ach0018173 7aPBFD2bicssc a81-xx2msc10aQuantum Groupsh[electronic resource] /cBenjamin Enriquez3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2008 a1 online resource (140 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aIRMA Lectures in Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (IRMA)v1200tLectures on tensor categories /rDamien Calaque, Pavel Etingof --tThe Drinfeld associator of gl(1 | 1) /rJens Lieberum --tIntegrable systems associated with elliptic algebras /rAlexander Odesskii, Vladimir Rubtsov --tOn the automorphisms of Uq+(ℊ) /rNicolás Andruskiewitsch.1 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aThe volume starts with a lecture course by P.

You can find out by reading these notes. They will introduce you to the
central concepts surrounding wavelets and their applications. By
focusing on the essential ideas and arguments, they enable you to get
to the heart of the matter as quickly as possible. They then point
you to the appropriate places in the literature for detailed proofs and
real applications, so you can continue your study.
They begin with the notion of time-frequency analysis, present the
multiresolution analysis and basic wavelet construction, introduce you
to the many friends, relatives and mutations of wavelets, and finally
give a selection of applications.

(GIT). The fundamental results of Hilbert and Mumford are exposed as
well as more recent topics such as the instability flag, the finiteness
of the number of quotients, and the variation of quotients.
In the second part, GIT is applied to solve the classification problem
of decorated principal bundles on a compact Riemann surface. The
solution is a quasi-projective moduli scheme which parameterizes those
objects that satisfy a semistability condition originating from gauge
theory. The moduli space is equipped with a generalized Hitchin map.
Via the universal Kobayashi–Hitchin correspondence, these moduli
spaces are related to moduli spaces of solutions of certain vortex
type equations. Potential applications include the study of
representation spaces of the fundamental group of compact
Riemann surfaces.
The book concludes with a brief discussion of generalizations of these
findings to higher dimensional base varieties, positive
characteristic, and parabolic bundles.
The text is fairly self-contained (e.g., the necessary background from
the theory of principal bundles is included) and features numerous
examples and exercises. It addresses students and researchers with a
working knowledge of elementary algebraic geometry.07aAlgebraic geometry2bicssc07aFields & rings2bicssc07aAlgebraic geometry2msc07aCommutative rings and algebras2msc40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/065423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/schmitt_mini.jpg02107nam a22003735a 450000100100000000300120001000500170002200600190003900700150005800800410007302000180011402400210013204000140015307200160016707200160018308400220019910000320022124501310025326000820038430000340046633600260050033700260052633800360055234700240058849000510061250600650066352007770072865000310150565000480153665000280158465000240161285600320163685600650166887-091109CH-001817-320091109150325.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa091109e20080924sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719567370a10.4171/0672doi ach0018173 7aPBS2bicssc 7aPHT2bicssc a65-xxa81-xx2msc1 aLubich, Christian,eauthor.10aFrom Quantum to Classical Molecular Dynamics: Reduced Models and Numerical Analysish[electronic resource] /cChristian Lubich3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2008 a1 online resource (153 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aZurich Lectures in Advanced Mathematics (ZLAM)1 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aQuantum dynamics of molecules poses a variety of computational challenges that are presently at the forefront of research efforts in numerical analysis in a number of application areas: high-dimensional partial differential equations, multiple scales, highly oscillatory solutions, and geometric structures such as symplecticity and reversibility that are favourably preserved in discretizations.
This text addresses such problems in quantum mechanics from the viewpoint of numerical analysis, illustrating them to a large extent on intermediate models between the Schrödinger equation of full many-body quantum dynamics and the Newtonian equations of classical molecular dynamics. The fruitful interplay between quantum dynamics and numerical analysis is emphasized.07aNumerical analysis2bicssc07aQuantum physics (quantum mechanics)2bicssc07aNumerical analysis2msc07aQuantum theory2msc40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/067423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/lubich_mini.jpg03956nam a22003495a 450000100100000000300120001000500170002200600190003900700150005800800410007302000180011402400210013204000140015307200170016708400150018424501130019926000820031230000340039433600260042833700260045433800360048034700240051649000410054050510910058150600650167252016660173765000270340365000400343070000350347085600320350585600690353788-091109CH-001817-320091109150325.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa091109e20080924sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719562870a10.4171/0622doi ach0018173 7aPBFL2bicssc a16-xx2msc10aTrends in Representation Theory of Algebras and Related Topicsh[electronic resource] /cAndrzej Skowroński3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2008 a1 online resource (722 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aEMS Series of Congress Reports (ECR)00tFinite dimensional Hecke algebras /rSusumu Ariki --tSemi-invariants of quivers and their zero sets /rGrzegorz Bobiński, Christine Riedtmann, Andrzej Skowroński --tMaximal Cohen–Macaulay modules over surface singularities /rIgor Burban, Yuriy Drozd --tRank varieties /rJon F.

understanding a wide-ranging family of mathematical structures and their
invariants: topological spaces, rings, algebraic varieties and operator
algebras are the dominant examples. The invariants range from
characteristic classes in cohomology, determinants of matrices, Chow
groups of varieties, as well as traces and indices of elliptic operators.
Thus K-theory is notable for its connections with other branches of
mathematics.
Noncommutative geometry develops tools which allow
one to think of noncommutative algebras in the same footing as commutative
ones: as algebras of functions on (noncommutative) spaces. The algebras
in question come from problems in various areas of mathematics and mathematical
physics; typical examples include algebras of pseudodifferential operators, group algebras,
and other algebras arising from quantum field theory.
To study noncommutative geometric problems one considers invariants of the relevant noncommutative
algebras. These invariants include algebraic and topological K-theory, and also cyclic homology,
discovered independently by Alain Connes and Boris Tsygan, which can be regarded both as a noncommutative
version of de Rham cohomology and as an additive version of K-theory.
There are primary and secondary Chern characters which pass from
K-theory to cyclic homology. These characters are relevant both to noncommutative and commutative
problems, and have applications ranging from index theorems to the detection of singularities of commutative
algebraic varieties.
The contributions to this volume represent
this range of connections between K-theory, noncommmutative geometry, and other branches of mathematics.07aAlgebraic geometry2bicssc07a$K$-theory2msc07aGlobal analysis, analysis on manifolds2msc1 aCortiñas, Guillermo,eeditor.1 aCuntz, Joachim,eeditor.1 aKaroubi, Max,eeditor.1 aNest, Ryszard,eeditor.1 aWeibel, Charles A.,eeditor.40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/060423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/cortinas.jpg02558nam a22003615a 450000100100000000300120001000500170002200600190003900700150005800800410007302000180011402400210013204000140015307200170016708400290018410000390021324501050025226000820035730000340043933600260047333700260049933800360052534700240056149000400058550600650062552012370069065000310192765000450195865000400200365000480204385600320209185600730212393-091109CH-001817-320091109150325.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa091109e20090110sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719568070a10.4171/0682doi ach0018173 7aPHRD2bicssc a83-xxa35-xxa58-xx2msc1 aChristodoulou, Demetrios,eauthor.10aThe Formation of Black Holes in General Relativityh[electronic resource] /cDemetrios Christodoulou3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2009 a1 online resource (598 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aEMS Monographs in Mathematics (EMM)1 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aIn 1965 Penrose introduced the fundamental concept of a trapped surface, on the basis of which he proved a theorem which asserts that a spacetime containing such a surface must come to an end. The presence of a trapped surface implies, moreover, that there is a region of spacetime, the black hole, which is inaccessible to observation from infinity.
A major challenge since that time has been to find out how trapped surfaces actually form, by analyzing the dynamics of gravitational collapse. The present monograph achieves this aim by establishing the formation of trapped surfaces in pure general relativity through the focusing of gravitational waves.
The theorems proved in the present monograph constitute the first foray into the long-time dynamics of general relativity in the large, that is, when the initial data are no longer confined to a suitable neighborhood of trivial data. The main new method, the short pulse method, applies to general systems of Euler–Lagrange equations of hyperbolic type, and provides the means to tackle problems which have hitherto seemed unapproachable.
This monograph will be of interest to people working in general relativity, geometric analysis, and partial differential equations.07aGeneral relativity2bicssc07aRelativity and gravitational theory2msc07aPartial differential equations2msc07aGlobal analysis, analysis on manifolds2msc40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/068423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/christodoulou3_mini.jpg02769nam a22003495a 450000100100000000300120001000500170002200600190003900700150005800800410007302000180011402400210013204000140015307200160016708400150018310000270019824501400022526000820036530000340044733600260048133700260050733800360053334700240056949000430059350600650063652015200070165000350222165000310225670000340228785600320232185600660235394-091109CH-001817-320091109150325.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa091109e20081201sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719559870a10.4171/0592doi ach0018173 7aPBX2bicssc a01-xx2msc1 aBeery, Janet,eauthor.10aThomas Harriot’s Doctrine of Triangular Numbers: the ‘Magisteria Magna’h[electronic resource] /cJanet Beery, Jacqueline Stedall3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2008 a1 online resource (144 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aHeritage of European Mathematics (HEM)1 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aThomas Harriot (c. 1560–1621) was a mathematician and astronomer, known
not only for his work in algebra and geometry, but also for his
wide-ranging interests in ballistics, navigation, and optics (he
discovered the sine law of refraction now known as Snell’s law).
By about 1614, Harriot had developed finite difference interpolation
methods for navigational tables. In 1618 (or slightly later) he composed
a treatise entitled ‘De numeris triangularibus et inde de
progressionibus arithmeticis, Magisteria magna’, in which he derived
symbolic interpolation formulae and showed how to use them. This
treatise was never published and is here reproduced for the first time.
Commentary has been added to help the reader to follow Harriot’s
beautiful but almost completely nonverbal presentation. The introductory
essay preceding the treatise gives an overview of the contents of the
‘Magisteria’ and describes its influence on Harriot’s contemporaries and
successors over the next sixty years. Harriot’s method was not
superseded until Newton, apparently independently, made a similar
discovery in the 1660s. The ideas in the ‘Magisteria’ were spread
primarily through personal communication and unpublished manuscripts,
and so, quite apart from their intrinsic mathematical interest, their
survival in England during the seventeenth century provides an important
case study in the dissemination of mathematics through informal networks
of friends and acquaintances.07aHistory of mathematics2bicssc07aHistory and biography2msc1 aStedall, Jacqueline,eauthor.40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/059423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/harriot_mini.jpg03767nam a22003855a 450000100100000000300120001000500170002200600190003900700150005800800410007302000180011402400210013204000140015307200170016708400220018424501070020626000820031330000340039533600260042933700260045533800360048134700240051749000500054150512870059150600650187852011240194365000320306765000310309965000520313070000350318270000340321770000300325185600320328185600680331391-091109CH-001817-320091109150325.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa091109e20081022sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719557470a10.4171/0572doi ach0018173 7aPHGK2bicssc a01-xxa82-xx2msc10aBoltzmann’s Legacyh[electronic resource] /cGiovanni Gallavotti, Wolfgang L.

Reiter.1 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aLudwig Eduard Boltzmann (1844–1906) was an
Austrian physicist famous for his founding contributions in the fields
of statistical mechanics and statistical thermodynamics. He was one of
the most important advocates for atomic theory when that scientific
model was still highly controversial. To commemorate the 100th
anniversary of his death in Duino, the International Symposium
“Boltzmann's Legacy” was held at the Erwin Schrödinger International
Institute for Mathematical Physics in June 2006.
This text covers a wide spectrum of topics ranging from equilibrium
statistical and nonequilibrium statistical physics, ergodic theory and
chaos to basic questions of biology and historical accounts of
Boltzmann's work. Besides the lectures presented at the symposium the
volume also contains contributions specially written for this occasion.
The articles give a broad overview of Boltzmann's legacy to the sciences

The aim is to give a complete panorama of this generalized Teichmüller theory and of its applications in various fields of mathematics.
The volumes consist of chapters, each of which is dedicated to a specific topic. The present volume has 19 chapters and is divided into four parts:
The metric and the analytic theory (uniformization, Weil–Petersson geometry, holomorphic families of Riemann surfaces, infinite-dimensional Teichmüller spaces, cohomology of moduli space, and the intersection theory of moduli space).
The group theory (quasi-homomorphisms of mapping class groups, measurable rigidity of mapping class groups, applications to Lefschetz fibrations, affine groups of flat surfaces, braid groups, and Artin groups).
Representation spaces and geometric structures (trace coordinates, invariant theory, complex projective structures, circle packings, and moduli spaces of Lorentz manifolds homeomorphic to the product of a surface with the real line).
The Grothendieck–Teichmüller theory (dessins d'enfants, Grothendieck's reconstruction principle, and the Teichmüller theory of the soleniod).
This handbook is an essential reference for graduate students and researchers interested in Teichmüller theory and its ramifications, in particular for mathematicians working in topology, geometry, algebraic geometry, dynamical systems and complex analysis.

Tits in 1959 in order to describe geometric properties of simple groups of Lie type of rank 2. After its appearance in 1984, Finite Generalized Quadrangles (FGQ) quickly became the standard reference for finite GQ. It presents the whole story of the subject from the very beginning in a book of modest length.
This second edition is essentially a reprint of the first edition. It is a careful rendering into LaTeX of the original, along with an appendix that introduces major new results pertaining to GQ, especially in those areas in which the authors of this work have made a contribution.
The first edition has been out of print for many years, and the new edition makes again available this classical reference in the rapidly increasing field of finite geometries.07aCombinatorics & graph theory2bicssc07aCombinatorics2msc07aGeometry2msc1 aThas, Joseph A.,eauthor.40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/066423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/payne_thas-mini.jpg05049nam a22004575a 450000100100000000300120001000500170002200600190003900700150005800800410007302000180011402400210013204000140015307200160016707200170018307200170020007200160021708400360023324501820026926000820045130000340053333600260056733700260059333800360061934700240065550517220067950600650240152016820246665000310414865000350417965000510421465000320426565000280429765000400432565000260436565000440439170000280443570000300446385600320449385600660452598-091109CH-001817-320091109150325.0a fot 1|| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa091109e20090615sz fot 1|| 0|eng d a978303719556770a10.4171/0562doi ach0018173 7aPBS2bicssc 7aPBKJ2bicssc 7aPBWD2bicssc 7aPHB2bicssc a65-xxa35-xxa68-xxa92-xx2msc10a6th International Congress on Industrial and Applied Mathematics Zürich, Switzerland, 16-20 July 2007h[electronic resource] :bInvited Lectures /cRolf Jeltsch, Gerhard Wanner3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2009 a1 online resource (530 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda00tA level set method for the numerical simulation of damage evolution /rGrégoire Allaire, François Jouve, Nicolas Van Goethem --tDissipation inequalities in systems theory: An introduction and recent results /rChristian Ebenbauer, Tobias Raff, Frank Allgöwer --tSome nonlinear problems involving non-local diffusions /rLuis A.

Lorentz metrics and fields which describe the matter content. Einstein’s
equations equate the Einstein tensor (a curvature quantity associated
with the Lorentz metric) with the stress energy tensor (an object constructed
using the matter fields). In addition, there are equations
describing the evolution of the matter. Using symmetry as a guiding
principle, one is naturally led to the Schwarzschild and
Friedmann–Lemaître–Robertson–Walker solutions,
modelling an isolated system and
the entire universe respectively. In a different approach, formulating
Einstein’s equations as an initial value problem allows a closer study of
their solutions. This book first provides a definition of the concept of
initial data and a proof of the correspondence between initial data and
development. It turns out that some initial data allow non-isometric
maximal developments, complicating the uniqueness issue. The second
half of the book is concerned with this and related problems, such as
strong cosmic censorship.
The book presents complete proofs of several classical results that play a
central role in mathematical relativity but are not easily accessible to
those wishing to enter the subject. Prerequisites are a good knowledge
of basic measure and integration theory as well as the fundamentals of
Lorentz geometry. The necessary background from the theory of partial
differential equations and Lorentz geometry is included.07aDifferential equations2bicssc07aRelativity and gravitational theory2msc40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/053423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/ringstroem_mini.jpg02819nam a22003855a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001700168084002200185100003200207245017800239260008200417300003400499336002600533337002600559338003600585347002400621490003900645506006500684520137900749650003302128650005202161650002902213700003102242700002902273700003202302856003202334856006702366100-091109CH-001817-320091109150325.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa091109e20090708sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719570370a10.4171/0702doi ach0018173 7aPHDD2bicssc a82-xxa46-xx2msc1 aAlbeverio, Sergio,eauthor.10aThe Statistical Mechanics of Quantum Lattice Systemsh[electronic resource] :bA Path Integral Approach /cSergio Albeverio, Yuri Kondratiev, Yuri Kozitsky, Michael Röckner3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2009 a1 online resource (392 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aEMS Tracts in Mathematics (ETM)v81 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aQuantum statistical mechanics plays a major role in many fields
such as, for instance, thermodynamics, plasma physics, solid-state
physics, and the study of stellar structure.
While the theory of quantum harmonic oscillators is relatively simple,
the case of anharmonic oscillators, a mathematical model of a localized quantum
particle, is more complex and challenging.
Moreover, infinite
systems of interacting quantum anharmonic oscillators possess
interesting ordering properties with respect to quantum
stabilization.
This book presents a rigorous approach to the
statistical mechanics of such systems, in particular with respect to their actions on a crystal lattice.
The text is addressed to both mathematicians and physicists, especially those who are concerned with
the rigorous mathematical background of their results and the kind of problems that arise in quantum statistical mechanics. The reader will find here
a concise collection of facts, concepts, and tools relevant for the
application of path integrals and other methods based on measure and
integration theory to problems of quantum physics, in particular the latest results in the mathematical theory of quantum
anharmonic crystals. The methods developed in
the book are also applicable to other problems involving infinitely
many variables, for example, in biology and economics.07aAnalytical mechanics2bicssc07aStatistical mechanics, structure of matter2msc07aFunctional analysis2msc1 aKondratiev, Yuri,eauthor.1 aKozitsky, Yuri,eauthor.1 aRöckner, Michael,eauthor.40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/070423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/roeckner_mini.jpg02559nam a22003855a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001600168084002200184245014300206260008200349300003400431336002600465337002600491338003600517347002400553505034700577506006500924520087500989650003101864650002801895650003101923700002701954700002801981700003102009700003602040856003202076856006502108102-091109CH-001817-320091109150325.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa091109e20090624sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719569770a10.4171/0692doi ach0018173 7aPBS2bicssc a65-xxa01-xx2msc10aEssays on the Complexity of Continuous Problemsh[electronic resource] /cErich Novak, Ian H.

lines. It consists of lectures on topics in classical algebraic geometry, including the basic
properties of projective algebraic varieties, linear systems of hypersurfaces, algebraic
curves (with special emphasis on rational curves), linear series on algebraic curves,
Cremona transformations, rational surfaces, and notable examples of special varieties
like the Segre, Grassmann, and Veronese varieties. An integral part and special feature
of the presentation is the inclusion of many exercises, not easy to find in the literature
and almost all with complete solutions.
The text is aimed at students of the last two years of an undergraduate program in
mathematics. It contains some rather advanced topics suitable for specialized courses
on the advanced undergraduate or beginning graduate level, as well as interesting topics
for a senior thesis. The prerequisites have been deliberately limited to basic elements
of projective geometry and abstract algebra. Thus, for example, some knowledge
of the geometry of subspaces and properties of fields is assumed.
The book will be welcomed by teachers and students of algebraic geometry who
are seeking a clear and panoramic path leading from the basic facts about linear

This book is about time-homogeneous Markov chains that evolve with discrete time
steps on a countable state space. Measure theory is not avoided, careful and
complete proofs are provided.
A specific feature is the systematic use, on a relatively elementary level, of generating
functions associated with transition probabilities for analyzing Markov chains. Basic
definitions and facts include the construction of the trajectory space and are followed
by ample material concerning recurrence and transience, the convergence and ergodic
theorems for positive recurrent chains. There is a side-trip to the Perron–Frobenius theorem.
Special attention is given to reversible Markov chains and to basic mathematical
models of “population evolution” such as birth-and-death chains, Galton–Watson
process and branching Markov chains.
A good part of the second half is devoted to the introduction of the basic language
and elements of the potential theory of transient Markov chains. Here the construction
and properties of the Martin boundary for describing positive harmonic functions
are crucial. In the long final chapter on nearest neighbour random walks on (typically
infinite) trees the reader can harvest from the seed of methods laid out so far, in order
to obtain a rather detailed understanding of a specific, broad class of Markov chains.
The level varies from basic to more advanced, addressing an audience from master’s
degree students to researchers in mathematics, and persons who want to teach the
subject on a medium or advanced level. A specific characteristic of the book is the rich
source of classroom-tested exercises with solutions.07aProbability & statistics2bicssc07aProbability theory and stochastic processes2msc40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/071423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/woess_mini.jpg03020nam a22003495a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001700168084002200185100002800207245007500235260008200310300003400392336002600426337002600452338003600478347002400514490006800538506006500606520178000671650002402451650004602475650005302521856003202574856006402606105-091109CH-001817-320091109150325.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa091109e20090829sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719546870a10.4171/0462doi ach0018173 7aPBWL2bicssc a37-xxa60-xx2msc1 aWeber, Michel,eauthor.10aDynamical Systems and Processesh[electronic resource] /cMichel Weber3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2009 a1 online resource (773 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aIRMA Lectures in Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (IRMA)v141 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aThis book presents in a concise and accessible way, as well as in
a common setting, various tools and methods arising from spectral
theory, ergodic theory and stochastic processes theory, which
form the basis of and contribute interactively a great deal to the
current research on almost everywhere convergence problems.
The text is divided into four parts.
Part I is devoted to spectral results such as von Neumann’s theorem, spectral regularizations inequalities and
their link with square functions and entropy numbers of ergodic averages.
The representation of a weakly
stationary process as Fourier transform of some random orthogonal measure,
and a study of Gaposhkin’s
spectral criterion conclude this part.
Classical results such as mixing in dynamical systems,
Birkhoff's pointwise theorem, dominated ergodic theorems,
oscillations functions of ergodic averages, transference
principle, Wiener–Wintner theorem, Banach principle, continuity principle,
Bourgain's entropy criteria, Burton–Denker’s central limit
theorem are covered in part II.
The metric entropy method and the majorizing measure method, including a
succinct study of Gaussian processes, are treated in part III, with
applications to suprema of random polynomials.
Part IV contains a study of Riemann sums and of the convergence
properties of the system {f(nkx), k ≥ 1}, as well as a probabilistic approach concerning divisors with applications.
Researchers working in dynamical systems and at the crossroads of
spectral theory, ergodic theory and stochastic processes will find the
tools, methods and results presented in this book of great interest.
It is written in a style accessible to graduate students throughout.07aStochastics2bicssc07aDynamical systems and ergodic theory2msc07aProbability theory and stochastic processes2msc40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/046423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/weber_mini.jpg03299nam a22003855a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001700168084002200185245011700207260008200324300003400406336002600440337002600466338003600492347002400528490006800552505070100620506006501321520125301386650003102639650002802670650002402698700002802722700003302750700003302783856003202816856006502848106-091109CH-001817-320091109150325.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa091109e20090924sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719573470a10.4171/0732doi ach0018173 7aPBMW2bicssc a14-xxa81-xx2msc10aRenormalization and Galois Theoriesh[electronic resource] /cAlain Connes, Frédéric Fauvet, Jean-Pierre Ramis3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2009 a1 online resource (279 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aIRMA Lectures in Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (IRMA)v1500tNoncommutative geometry and motives (à quoi servent les endomotifs?) /rCaterina Consani --tRenormalisation of non-commutative field theories /rVincent Rivasseau, Fabien Vignes-Tourneret --tMould expansions for the saddle-node and resurgence monomials /rDavid Sauzin --tGalois theory, motives and transcendental numbers /rYves André --tThe combinatorics of Bogoliubov’s recursion in renormalization /rKurusch Ebrahimi-Fard, Dominique Manchon --t(Non)commutative Hopf algebras of trees and (quasi)symmetric functions /rMichael E.

and Galois Theories held in Luminy, France, in March 2006.
The subject of this workshop was the interaction and relationship
between four currently very active areas: renormalization in quantum
field theory (QFT), differential Galois theory, noncommutative
geometry, motives and Galois theory.
The last decade has seen a burst of new techniques to cope with
the various mathematical questions involved in QFT, with notably the
development of a Hopf-algebraic approach and insights into the
classes of numbers and special functions that systematically appear
in the calculations of perturbative QFT (pQFT). The analysis of
the ambiguities of resummation of the divergent series of pQFT,
an old problem, has been renewed, using recent results on Gevrey
asymptotics, generalized Borel summation, Stokes phenomenon
and resurgent functions.
The purpose of the present book is to highlight, in the context of
renormalization, the convergence of these various themes,
orchestrated by diverse Galois theories. It contains three lecture
courses together with five research articles and will be useful to both
reseachers and graduate students in mathematics and physics.07aAlgebraic geometry2bicssc07aAlgebraic geometry2msc07aQuantum theory2msc1 aConnes, Alain,eeditor.1 aFauvet, Frédéric,eeditor.1 aRamis, Jean-Pierre,eeditor.40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/073423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/connes_mini.jpg03058nam a22003615a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001700168084002200185100003100207245011400238260008200352300003400434336002600468337002600494338003600520347002400556490003900580506006500619520180000684650003502484650002302519650002802542700002802570856003202598856006602630107-091109CH-001817-320091109150325.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa091109e20091001sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719574170a10.4171/0742doi ach0018173 7aPBRH2bicssc a11-xxa14-xx2msc1 aBöckle, Gebhard,eauthor.10aCohomological Theory of Crystals over Function Fieldsh[electronic resource] /cGebhard Böckle, Richard Pink3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2009 a1 online resource (195 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aEMS Tracts in Mathematics (ETM)v91 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aThis book develops a new cohomological theory for schemes in positive
characteristic p and it applies this theory to give a purely algebraic proof of a
conjecture of Goss on the rationality of certain L-functions arising in the
arithmetic of function fields. These L-functions are power series over a certain
ring A, associated to any family of Drinfeld A-modules or, more generally, of
A-motives on a variety of finite type over the finite field Fp. By analogy to the
Weil conjecture, Goss conjectured that these L-functions are in fact rational
functions. In 1996 Taguchi and Wan gave a first proof of Goss’s conjecture by
analytic methods à la Dwork.
The present text introduces A-crystals, which can be viewed as generalizations
of families of A-motives, and studies their cohomology. While A-crystals are
defined in terms of coherent sheaves together with a Frobenius map, in many
ways they actually behave like constructible étale sheaves. A central result is a
Lefschetz trace formula for L-functions of A-crystals, from which the rationality
of these L-functions is immediate. Beyond its application to Goss’s L-functions,
the theory of A-crystals is closely related to the work of Emerton and Kisin on
unit root F-crystals, and it is essential in an Eichler–Shimura type isomorphism
for Drinfeld modular forms as constructed by the first author.
The book is intended for researchers and advanced graduate students
interested in the arithmetic of function fields and/or cohomology theories for
varieties in positive characteristic. It assumes a good working knowledge in
algebraic geometry as well as familiarity with homological algebra and derived
categories, as provided by standard textbooks. Beyond that the presentation is
largely self-contained.07aAnalytic number theory2bicssc07aNumber theory2msc07aAlgebraic geometry2msc1 aPink, Richard,eauthor.40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/074423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/boeckle_mini.jpg02858nam a22003495a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001600168084001500184100003300199245009000232260008200322300003400404336002600438337002600464338003600490347002400526490004300550506006500593520165200658650003502310650003102345700003002376856003202406856007002438108-091109CH-001817-320091109150325.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa091109e20091030sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719558170a10.4171/0582doi ach0018173 7aPBX2bicssc a01-xx2msc1 aSpringer, Tonny A.,eauthor.10aHans Freudenthal, Selectah[electronic resource] /cTonny A.

His scientific activities were of a rich variety. Enrolling at the University of Berlin as a student in the 1920s, he followed in the footsteps of his teachers, and became a topologist, but with a lively interest in group theory. Later in life, after a long journey through the realm of mathematics, working on almost all subjects that drew his interest, he turned towards the practical and methodological issues of the didactics of mathematics.
The present Selecta are devoted to Freudenthal’s mathematical oeuvre, they contain a selection of his major contributions. Included are fundamental contributions to topology such as the foundation of the theory of ends (in the thesis of 1931), the introduction (in 1937) of the suspension and its use in stability results for homotopy groups of spheres. In group theory there is work on topological groups (of the 1930s) and on various aspects of the theory of Lie groups, such as a paper on automorphisms of 1941. From the later work of the 1950s and 1960s, papers on geometric aspects of Lie theory (geometries associated to exceptional groups, space problems) have been included. Freudenthal’s versatility is further demonstrated by a choice from his foundational and historical work: papers on intuitionistic logic and topology, a paper on axiomatic geometry reappraising Hilbert’s Grundlagen, and a paper summarizing his development of Lincos, a universal (“cosmic”) language.
The book also contains a sketch of Freudenthal’s life. Most of the selected papers are accompanied by brief comments.07aHistory of mathematics2bicssc07aHistory and biography2msc1 avan Dalen, Dirk,eauthor.40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/058423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/freudenthal_mini.jpg03071nam a22003375a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001600168084001500184100003200199245009500231260008200326300003400408336002600442337002600468338003600494347002400530490004800554506006500602520187300667650004502540650004802585856003202633856006802665109-131128CH-001817-320131128234500.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa131128e20131213sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719628170a10.4171/1282doi ach0018173 7aPBK2bicssc a58-xx2msc1 aKhalkhali, Masoud,eauthor.10aBasic Noncommutative Geometryh[electronic resource] :bSecond edition /cMasoud Khalkhali3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2013 a1 online resource (257 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aEMS Series of Lectures in Mathematics (ELM)1 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aThis text provides an introduction to noncommutative geometry and some of its applications. It can be used either as a textbook for a graduate course or for self-study. It will be useful for graduate students and researchers in mathematics and theoretical physics and all those who are interested in gaining an understanding of the subject. One feature of this book is the wealth of examples and exercises that help the reader to navigate through the subject. While background material is provided in the text and in several appendices, some familiarity with basic notions of functional analysis, algebraic topology, differential geometry and
homological algebra at a first year graduate level is helpful.
Developed by Alain Connes since the late 1970s, noncommutative geometry has found many applications to long-standing conjectures in topology and geometry
and has recently made headways in theoretical physics and number theory. The book starts with a detailed description of some of the most pertinent algebra-geometry correspondences by casting geometric notions in algebraic terms, then proceeds in the second chapter to the idea of a noncommutative space and how it is constructed. The last two chapters deal with homological tools: cyclic cohomology and Connes–Chern characters in K-theory and K-homology, culminating in one commutative diagram expressing the equality of topological and analytic index in a noncommutative setting. Applications to integrality of noncommutative topological invariants are given as well.
Two new sections have been added to this second edition: one concerns the Gauss–Bonnet theorem and the definition and computation of the scalar curvature of the curved noncommutative two torus, and the second is a brief introduction to Hopf cyclic cohomology. The bibliography has been extended and some new examples are presented.07aCalculus & mathematical analysis2bicssc07aGlobal analysis, analysis on manifolds2msc40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/128423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/khalkhali_mini.jpg02499nam a22003495a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001700168084002200185100003100207245010900238260008200347300003400429336002600463337002600489338003600515347002400551490005000575506006500625520123600690650003501926650005501961650004002016856003202056856006102088110-100226CH-001817-320100226234500.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa100226e20100226sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719576570a10.4171/0762doi ach0018173 7aPBKJ2bicssc a32-xxa35-xx2msc1 aStraube, Emil J.,eauthor.10aLectures on the ℒ2-Sobolev Theory of the ∂-Neumann problemh[electronic resource] /cEmil J.

It grew out of courses for advanced graduate students and young researchers given by the author at the Erwin Schrödinger International Institute for Mathematical Physics and at Texas A&M University.
The introductory chapter provides an overview of the contents and puts them in historical perspective. The second chapter presents the basic ℒ2-theory. Following is a chapter on the subelliptic estimates on strictly pseudoconvex domains. The two final chapters on compactness and on regularity in Sobolev spaces bring the reader to the frontiers of research.
Prerequisites are a solid background in basic complex and functional analysis, including the elementary ℒ2-Sobolev theory and distributions. Some knowledge in several complex variables is helpful. Concerning partial differential equations, not much is assumed. The elliptic regularity of the Dirichlet problem for the Laplacian is quoted a few times, but the ellipticity results needed for elliptic regularization in the third chapter are proved from scratch.07aDifferential equations2bicssc07aSeveral complex variables and analytic spaces2msc07aPartial differential equations2msc40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/076423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/straube.jpg04361nam a22003375a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001500168245013700183260008200320300003400402336002600436337002600462338003600488347002400524505164800548506006502196520155602261650002403817700002603841700003103867700003003898856003203928856006303960111-100412CH-001817-320100412234500.0a fot 1|| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa100412e20100424sz fot 1|| 0|eng d a978303719577270a10.4171/0772doi ach0018173 7aPB2bicssc10aEuropean Congress of Mathematics Amsterdam, 14–18 July, 2008h[electronic resource] /cA.C.M.

Following those in Paris (1992), Budapest (1996), Barcelona (2000) and Stockholm (2004), the Fifth European Congress of Mathematics (5ECM) took place in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, July 14–18, 2008, with about 1000 participants from 68 different countries.
Ten plenary and thirty-three invited lectures were delivered. Three science lectures outlined applications of mathematics in other sciences: climate change, quantum information theory and population dynamics. As in the four preceding EMS congresses, ten EMS prizes were granted to very promising young mathematicians. In addition, the Felix Klein Prize was awarded, for the second time, for an application of mathematics to a concrete and difficult industrial problem. There were twenty-two minisymposia, spread over the whole mathematical area. Two round table meetings were organized: one on industrial mathematics and one on mathematics and developing countries.
As part of the 44th Nederlands Mathematisch Congres, which was embedded in 5ECM, the so-called Brouwer lecture was presented. It is the Netherland's most prestigious award in mathematics, organized every three years by the Royal Dutch Mathematical Society. Information about Brouwer was given in an invited historical lecture during the congress.
These proceedings contain a selection of the contributions to the congress, providing a permanent record of the best what mathematics offers today.07aMathematics2bicssc1 aRan, A.C.M.,eeditor.1 ate Riele, Herman,eeditor.1 aWiegerinck, Jan,eeditor.40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/077423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/5ECM_mini.jpg02809nam a22004215a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001700168072001600185084002900201100002800230245020800258260008200466300003400548336002600582337002600608338003600634347002400670490004800694506006500742520122300807650003502030650003102065650002802096650004002124650002502164700003402189700003202223700003502255856003202290856006502322112-100420CH-001817-320100420234500.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa100420e20100430sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719578970a10.4171/0782doi ach0018173 7aPBKJ2bicssc 7aPBS2bicssc a65-xxa35-xxa47-xx2msc1 aHolden, Helge,eauthor.10aSplitting Methods for Partial Differential Equations with Rough Solutionsh[electronic resource] :bAnalysis and MATLAB programs /cHelge Holden, Kenneth H.

By applying operator splitting to a complicated model one can often split it into simpler problems that can be analyzed separately. In this book one studies operator splitting for a family of nonlinear evolution equations, including hyperbolic conservation laws and degenerate convection-diffusion equations. Common for these equations is the prevalence of rough, or non-smooth, solutions, e.g., shocks.
Rigorous analysis is presented, showing that both semi-discrete and fully discrete splitting methods converge. For conservation laws, sharp error estimates are provided and for convection-diffusion equations one discusses a priori and a posteriori correction of entropy errors introduced by the splitting. Numerical methods include finite difference and finite volume methods as well as front tracking. The theory is illustrated by numerous examples. There is a dedicated web page that provides MATLAB codes for many of the examples.
The book is suitable for graduate students and researchers in pure and applied mathematics, physics, and engineering.07aDifferential equations2bicssc07aNumerical analysis2bicssc07aNumerical analysis2msc07aPartial differential equations2msc07aOperator theory2msc1 aKarlsen, Kenneth H.,eauthor.1 aLie, Knut-Andreas,eauthor.1 aRisebro, Nils Henrik,eauthor.40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/078423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/holden_mini.jpg03075nam a22003735a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001700168084003600185100003000221245013000251260008200381300003400463336002600497337002600523338003600549347002400585490003900609506006500648520169300713650003502406650004602441650004102487650003102528650004402559856003202603856006602635113-100519CH-001817-320100519234500.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa100519e20100519sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719581970a10.4171/0812doi ach0018173 7aPBKQ2bicssc a37-xxa34-xxa53-xxa70-xx2msc1 aZehnder, Eduard,eauthor.10aLectures on Dynamical Systemsh[electronic resource] :bHamiltonian Vector Fields and Symplectic Capacities /cEduard Zehnder3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2010 a1 online resource (363 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aEMS Textbooks in Mathematics (ETB)1 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aThis book originated from an introductory lecture course on dynamical systems given by the author for advanced students in mathematics and physics at the ETH Zurich.
The first part centres around unstable and chaotic phenomena caused by the occurrence of homoclinic points. The existence of homoclinic points complicates the orbit structure considerably and gives rise to invariant hyperbolic sets nearby. The orbit structure in such sets is analyzed by means of the shadowing lemma, whose proof is based on the contraction principle. This lemma is also used to prove S. Smale’s theorem about the embedding of Bernoulli systems near homoclinic orbits. The chaotic behavior is illustrated in the simple mechanical model of a periodically perturbed mathematical pendulum.
The second part of the book is devoted to Hamiltonian systems. The Hamiltonian formalism is developed in the elegant language of the exterior calculus. The theorem of V. Arnold and R. Jost shows that the solutions of Hamiltonian systems which possess sufficiently many integrals of motion can be written down explicitly and for all times.
The existence proofs of global periodic orbits of Hamiltonian systems on symplectic manifolds are based on a variational principle for the old action functional of classical mechanics. The necessary tools from variational calculus are developed.
There is an intimate relation between the periodic orbits of Hamiltonian systems and a class of symplectic invariants called symplectic capacities. From these symplectic invariants one derives surprising symplectic rigidity phenomena. This allows a first glimpse of the fast developing new field of symplectic topology.07aCalculus of variations2bicssc07aDynamical systems and ergodic theory2msc07aOrdinary differential equations2msc07aDifferential geometry2msc07aMechanics of particles and systems2msc40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/081423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/zehnder_mini.jpg02657nam a22003735a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001700168084003600185100003100221245013500252260008200387300003400469336002600503337002600529338003600555347002400591490004000615506006500655520128700720650003102007650003802038650004002076650004602116650002402162856003202186856006502218114-100601CH-001817-320100601234500.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa100601e20100601sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719586470a10.4171/0862doi ach0018173 7aPBPD2bicssc a57-xxa16-xxa18-xxa81-xx2msc1 aTuraev, Vladimir,eauthor.10aHomotopy Quantum Field Theoryh[electronic resource] :bWith Appendices by Michael Müger and Alexis Virelizier /cVladimir Turaev3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2010 a1 online resource (290 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aEMS Tracts in Mathematics (ETM)v101 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aHomotopy Quantum Field Theory (HQFT) is a branch of Topological
Quantum Field Theory founded by E. Witten and M. Atiyah. It
applies ideas from theoretical physics to study principal
bundles over manifolds and, more generally, homotopy classes of maps
from manifolds to a fixed target space.
This book is the first
systematic exposition of Homotopy Quantum Field Theory. It starts
with a formal definition of an HQFT and provides examples of
HQFTs in all dimensions. The main body of the text is focused on
2-dimensional and 3-dimensional HQFTs. A study of these HQFTs
leads to new algebraic objects:
crossed Frobenius group-algebras, crossed ribbon group-categories,
and Hopf group-coalgebras. These notions and their connections with HQFTs are discussed in detail.
The text ends with several appendices including an outline of recent
developments and a list of open problems. Three appendices by M.
Müger and A. Virelizier summarize their work in this area.
The book is addressed to mathematicians, theoretical physicists, and
graduate students interested in topological aspects of quantum field
theory. The exposition is self-contained and well suited for
a one-semester graduate course. Prerequisites
include only basics of algebra and topology.07aAlgebraic topology2bicssc07aManifolds and cell complexes2msc07aAssociative rings and algebras2msc07aCategory theory; homological algebra2msc07aQuantum theory2msc40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/086423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/turaev_mini.jpg02053nam a22003735a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001600168084003600184100002800220245011400248260008200362300003400444336002600478337002600504338003600530347002400566490004000590506006500630520073400695650003101429650002901460650003901489650002601528650002601554856003201580856006701612115-100601CH-001817-320100601234500.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa100601e20100601sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719585770a10.4171/0852doi ach0018173 7aPBS2bicssc a46-xxa41-xxa42-xxa68-xx2msc1 aTriebel, Hans,eauthor.10aBases in Function Spaces, Sampling, Discrepancy, Numerical integrationh[electronic resource] /cHans Triebel3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2010 a1 online resource (305 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aEMS Tracts in Mathematics (ETM)v111 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aThe first chapters of this book deal with Haar bases, Faber bases and some spline bases for function spaces in Euclidean n-space and n-cubes.

The main themes covered are:
special geometry and supersymmetry
generalized geometry
geometries with torsion
para-geometries
holonomy theory
symmetric spaces and spaces of constant curvature
conformal geometry
wave equations on Lorentzian manifolds
D-branes and K-theory
The intended audience consists of advanced students and researchers working in differential geometry, string theory and related areas. The emphasis is on geometrical structures occurring on target spaces of supersymmetric field theories. Some of these structures can be fully described in the classical framework of pseudo-Riemannian geometry. Others lead to new concepts relating various fields of research, such as special Kähler geometry or generalized geometry.07aDifferential & Riemannian geometry2bicssc07aDifferential geometry2msc07aQuantum theory2msc07aRelativity and gravitational theory2msc1 aCortés, Vicente,eeditor.40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/079423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/cortes_mini.jpg03320nam a22003615a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001600168084002200184100002700206245015300233260008200386300003400468336002600502337002600528338003600554347002400590490004000614506006500654520200400719650004702723650002802770650002602798700003602824856003202860856006602892118-100703CH-001817-320100703234500.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa100703e20100703sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719584070a10.4171/0842doi ach0018173 7aUAA2bicssc a65-xxa68-xx2msc1 aNovak, Erich,eauthor.10aTractability of Multivariate Problemsh[electronic resource] :bVolume II: Standard Information for Functionals /cErich Novak, Henryk Woźniakowski3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2010 a1 online resource (675 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aEMS Tracts in Mathematics (ETM)v121 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aThis three-volume set is a comprehensive study of the
tractability of multivariate problems.
The present second volume deals with algorithms using
standard information consisting of function values
for the approximation of linear and selected nonlinear
functionals. An important
example is numerical multivariate integration.
The proof techniques used in volumes I and II
are quite different.
It is especially hard to establish meaningful lower error
bounds for the approximation of functionals
by using finitely many function values.
Here, the concept
of decomposable reproducing kernels is
helpful, allowing it to find matching lower and upper error bounds
for some linear functionals.
It is then possible to conclude tractability results
from such error bounds.
Tractability results even for linear functionals are very rich in
variety. There are infinite-dimensional Hilbert spaces for which
the approximation with an arbitrarily small error
of all linear functionals requires only one function
value. There are Hilbert spaces for which all
nontrivial linear functionals suffer from the curse of dimensionality.
This holds for unweighted spaces, where the role of all variables and
groups of variables is the same. For weighted spaces one can monitor the
role of all variables and groups of variables. Necessary and
sufficient conditions on the decay of the weights are given to obtain various
notions of tractability.
The text contains extensive
chapters on discrepancy and integration,
decomposable kernels and lower bounds,
the Smolyak/sparse grid algorithms,
lattice rules and the
CBC (component-by-component) algorithms.
This is done in various settings.
Path integration and quantum computation are also discussed.
The book is of interest for researchers working in computational
mathematics, especially in approximation of high-dimensional
problems. It is also well suited for graduate courses and
seminars. 61 open problems...07aMathematical theory of computation2bicssc07aNumerical analysis2msc07aComputer science2msc1 aWoźniakowski, Henryk,eauthor.40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/084423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/novakII_mini.jpg02228nam a22003735a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001700168084003600185100002600221245009800247260008200345300003400427336002600461337002600487338003600513347002400549490005100573506006500624520088100689650003101570650005501601650002301656650005501679650002601734856003201760856006201792119-100820CH-001817-320100820234500.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa100820e20100907sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719593270a10.4171/0932doi ach0018173 7aPBUH2bicssc a90-xxa05-xxa15-xxa68-xx2msc1 aOnn, Shmuel,eauthor.10aNonlinear Discrete Optimizationh[electronic resource] :bAn Algorithmic Theory /cShmuel Onn3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2010 a1 online resource (147 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aZurich Lectures in Advanced Mathematics (ZLAM)1 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aThis monograph develops an algorithmic theory of nonlinear discrete optimization. It introduces a simple and useful setup which enables the polynomial time solution of broad fundamental classes of nonlinear combinatorial optimization and integer programming problems in variable dimension. An important part of this theory is enhanced by recent developments in the algebra of Graver bases. The power of the theory is demonstrated by deriving the first polynomial time algorithms in a variety of application areas within operations research and statistics, including vector partitioning, matroid optimization, experimental design, multicommodity flows, multi-index transportation and privacy in statistical databases.
The monograph is intended for graduate students and researchers.

in 1983–84 at the Ohio State University, Columbus, Ohio, USA. A substantial
update is given in the bibliography. Over the last 20 plus years, there has
been an energetic activity in the field of finite simple group theory related to
the monster simple group. Most notably, influential works have been
produced in the theory of vertex operator algebras whose research was
stimulated by the moonshine of the finite groups. Still, we can ask the same
questions now just as we did some 30–40 years ago: What is the monster
simple group? Is it really related to the theory of the universe as it was
vaguely so envisioned? What lays behind the moonshine phenomena of the
monster group? It may appear that we have only scratched the surface.
These notes are primarily reproduced for the benefit of young readers
who wish to start learning about modular functions used in moonshine.07aGroups & group theory2bicssc07aGroup theory and generalizations2msc07aNumber theory2msc40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/090423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/harada.jpg03291nam a22003975a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001700168084002200185100003400207245014000241260008200381300003400463336002600497337002600523338003600549347002400585490004000609506006500649520185400714650004702568650003802615650003102653700003002684700003002714700003102744700002602775856003202801856006002833122-100929CH-001817-320100929234500.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa100929e20100929sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719582670a10.4171/0822doi ach0018173 7aPBMP2bicssc a57-xxa53-xx2msc1 aBessières, Laurent,eauthor.10aGeometrisation of 3-Manifoldsh[electronic resource] /cLaurent Bessières, Gérard Besson, Michel Boileau, Sylvain Maillot, Joan Porti3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2010 a1 online resource (247 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aEMS Tracts in Mathematics (ETM)v131 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aThe Geometrisation Conjecture was proposed by William Thurston in the mid 1970s in order to classify compact 3-manifolds by means of a canonical decomposition along essential, embedded surfaces into pieces that possess geometric structures. It contains the famous Poincaré Conjecture as a special case. In 2002, Grigory Perelman announced a proof of the Geometrisation Conjecture based on Richard Hamilton’s Ricci flow approach, and presented it in a series of three celebrated arXiv preprints.
Since then there has been an ongoing effort to understand Perelman’s work by giving more detailed and accessible presentations of his ideas or alternative arguments for various parts of the proof. This book is a contribution to this endeavour. Its two main innovations are first a simplified version of Perelman’s Ricci flow with surgery, which is called Ricci flow with bubbling-off, and secondly a completely different and original approach to the last step of the proof. In addition, special effort has been made to simplify and streamline the overall structure of the argument, and make the various parts independent of one another.
A complete proof of the Geometrisation Conjecture is given, modulo pre-Perelman results on Ricci flow, Perelman’s results on the ℒ-functional and κ-solutions, as well as the Colding–Minicozzi extinction paper. The book can be read by anyone already familiar with these results, or willing to accept them as black boxes. The structure of the proof is presented in a lengthy introduction, which does not require knowledge of geometric analysis. The bulk of the proof is the existence theorem for Ricci flow with bubbling-off, which is treated in parts I and II. Part III deals with the long time behaviour of Ricci flow with bubbling-off. Part IV finishes the proof of the Geometrisation Conjecture.07aDifferential & Riemannian geometry2bicssc07aManifolds and cell complexes2msc07aDifferential geometry2msc1 aBesson, Gérard,eauthor.1 aBoileau, Michel,eauthor.1 aMaillot, Sylvain,eauthor.1 aPorti, Joan,eauthor.40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/082423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/besson.jpg02661nam a22003615a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001600168084002900184100003700213245008800250260008200338300003400420336002600454337002600480338003600506347002400542490004300566506006500609520140800674650003502082650003102117650001802148650003102166856003202197856007002229123-101201CH-001817-320101201234500.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa101201e20101201sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719587170a10.4171/0872doi ach0018173 7aPBX2bicssc a01-xxa51-xxa53-xx2msc1 aPapadopoulos, Athanase,eauthor.10aNikolai I.

This memoir is a résumé of his work on non-Euclidean geometry and its applications, and it can be considered as his clearest account on the subject. It is also the conclusion of his lifework, and the last attempt he made to acquire recognition. The treatise contains basic ideas of hyperbolic geometry, including the trigonometric formulae, the techniques of computation of arc length, of area and of volume, with concrete examples. It also deals with the applications of hyperbolic geometry to the computation of new definite integrals. The techniques are different from those found in most modern books on hyperbolic geometry since they do not use models.
Besides its historical importance, Lobachevsky’s Pangeometry is a beautiful work, written in a simple and condensed style. The material that it contains is still very alive, and reading this book will be most useful for researchers and for students in geometry and in the history of science. It can be used as a textbook, as a source book and as a repository of inspiration.
The present edition provides the first complete English translation of the Pangeometry that appears in print. It contains facsimiles of both the Russian and the French original versions. The translation is accompanied by notes, followed by a biography of Lobachevky and an extensive commentary.07aHistory of mathematics2bicssc07aHistory and biography2msc07aGeometry2msc07aDifferential geometry2msc40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/087423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/lobachevsky_mini.jpg03395nam a22003735a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001600168084001500184245011900199260008200318300003400400336002600434337002600460338003600486347002400522490004100546505135200587506006501939520077902004650002002783650002802803700002702831700003502858700003202893856003202925856006402957124-101215CH-001817-320101215234500.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa101215e20101230sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719507970a10.4171/0072doi ach0018173 7aPBF2bicssc a14-xx2msc10aClassification of Algebraic Varietiesh[electronic resource] /cCarel Faber, Gerard van der Geer, Eduard Looijenga3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2010 a1 online resource (346 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aEMS Series of Congress Reports (ECR)00tStable varieties with a twist /rDan Abramovich, Brendan Hassett --tBasic properties of log canonical centers /rFlorin Ambro --tBurniat surfaces I: fundamental groups and moduli of primary Burniat surfaces /rIngrid Bauer, Fabrizio Catanese --tMinimal models, flips and finite generation: a tribute to V.V.

Work of Hacon and McKernan and many others is causing a wave of breakthroughs in the Minimal Model Program: we now know that for a smooth projective variety the canonical ring is finitely generated. These new results and methods are reshaping the field.
Inspired by this exciting progress, the editors organized a meeting at Schiermonnikoog and invited leading experts to write papers about the recent developments. The result is the present volume, a lively testimony of the sudden advances that originate from these new ideas.
This volume will be of interest to a wide range of pure mathematicians, but will appeal especially to algebraic and analytic geometers.07aAlgebra2bicssc07aAlgebraic geometry2msc1 aFaber, Carel,eeditor.1 avan der Geer, Gerard,eeditor.1 aLooijenga, Eduard,eeditor.40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/007423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/faber_mini.jpg02715nam a22003375a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001600168084001500184100002900199245018800228260008200416300003400498336002600532337002600558338003600584347002400620490004000644506006500684520145900749650004502208650002802253856003202281856006402313125-101201CH-001817-320101201234500.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa101201e20101201sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719591870a10.4171/0912doi ach0018173 7aPBK2bicssc a65-xx2msc1 aBörm, Steffen,eauthor.10aEfficient Numerical Methods for Non-local Operatorsh[electronic resource] :bℋ2-Matrix Compression, Algorithms and Analysis Corrected 2nd printing, September 2013 /cSteffen Börm3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2010 a1 online resource (441 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aEMS Tracts in Mathematics (ETM)v141 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aHierarchical matrices present an efficient way of treating dense matrices
that arise in the context of integral equations, elliptic partial
differential equations, and control theory.
While a dense n × n matrix in standard representation requires
n2 units of storage, a hierarchical matrix can approximate the
matrix in a compact representation requiring only O(nk log n) units
of storage, where k is a parameter controlling the accuracy.
Hierarchical matrices have been successfully applied to approximate
matrices arising in the context of boundary integral methods, to
construct preconditioners for partial differential equations, to
evaluate matrix functions and to solve matrix equations used in control
theory.
ℋ2-matrices
offer a refinement of hierarchical matrices: using a
multilevel representation of submatrices, the efficiency can be
significantly improved, particularly for large problems.
This books gives an introduction to the basic concepts and presents a
general framework that can be used to analyze the complexity and
accuracy of ℋ2-matrix techniques.
Starting from basic ideas of numerical linear
algebra and numerical analysis, the theory is developed in a straightforward and systematic way, accessible to advanced students and researchers
in numerical mathematics and scientific computing. Special techniques are only required
in isolated sections, e.g., for certain classes of model problems.07aCalculus & mathematical analysis2bicssc07aNumerical analysis2msc40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/091423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/börm_mini.jpg02357nam a22003735a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001700168084003600185100003200221245010800253260008200361300003400443336002600477337002600503338003600529347002400565490004800589506006500637520099800702650003401700650004001734650005501774650002501829650003101854856003201885856006601917126-110225CH-001817-320110225234510.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa110225e20110225sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719580270a10.4171/0802doi ach0018173 7aPBFD2bicssc a22-xxa32-xxa47-xxa53-xx2msc1 aNeretin, Yurii A.,eauthor.10aLectures on Gaussian Integral Operators and Classical Groupsh[electronic resource] /cYurii A.

Topics covered include the theory of various Fourier-like integral operators as Segal–Bargmann transforms, Gaussian integral operators in $L^2$ and in the Fock space, integral operators with theta-kernels, the geometry of real and $p$-adic classical groups and symmetric spaces.
The heart of the book is the Weil representation of
the symplectic group (real and complex realizations, relations with theta-functions
and modular forms, $p$-adic and adelic constructions) and representations

The book is addressed to graduate students and researchers in representation theory, differential geometry, and operator theory. The reader is supposed to be familiar with standard university courses in linear algebra, functional analysis, and complex analysis.07aGroups & group theory2bicssc07aTopological groups, Lie groups2msc07aSeveral complex variables and analytic spaces2msc07aOperator theory2msc07aDifferential geometry2msc40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/080423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/neretin_mini.jpg02984nam a22003375a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001600168084001500184100003400199245014500233260008200378300003400460336002600494337002600520338003600546347002400582490004300606506006500649520176800714650003502482650003102517856003202548856006602580127-110329CH-001817-320110329234510.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa110329e20110329sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719592570a10.4171/0922doi ach0018173 7aPBX2bicssc a01-xx2msc1 aStedall, Jacqueline,eauthor.10aFrom Cardano’s great art to Lagrange’s reflections: filling a gap in the history of algebrah[electronic resource] /cJacqueline Stedall3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2011 a1 online resource (236 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aHeritage of European Mathematics (HEM)1 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aThis book is an exploration of a claim made by Lagrange in the autumn of 1771 as he embarked upon his lengthy ‘Réflexions sur la résolution algébrique des équations’: that there had been few advances in the algebraic solution of equations since the time of Cardano in the mid sixteenth century. That opinion has been shared by many later historians. The present study attempts to redress that view and to examine the intertwined developments in the theory of equations from Cardano to Lagrange. A similar historical exploration led Lagrange himself to insights that were to transform the entire nature and scope of algebra.
Progress was not confined to any one country: at different times mathematicians in Italy, France, the Netherlands, England, Scotland, Russia, and Germany contributed to the discussion and to a gradual deepening of understanding. In particular, the national Academies of Berlin, St Petersburg, and Paris in the eighteenth century were crucial in supporting informed mathematical communities and encouraging the wider dissemination of key ideas. This study therefore truly highlights the existence of a European mathematical heritage.
The book is written in three parts. Part I offers an overview of the period from Cardano to Newton (from 1545 to 1707) and is arranged chronologically. Part II covers the period from Newton to Lagrange (from 1707 to 1770) and treats the material according to key themes. Part III is a brief account of the aftermath of the discoveries made in the 1770s. The book attempts throughout to capture the reality of mathematical discovery by inviting the reader to follow in the footsteps of the authors themselves, with as few changes as possible to the original notation and style of presentation.07aHistory of mathematics2bicssc07aHistory and biography2msc40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/092423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/stedall_mini.jpg02701nam a22003735a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001700168084002900185100003000214245012800244260008200372300003400454336002600488337002600514338003600540347002400576490004800600506006500648520134800713650002702061650004002088650002802128650004302156700003002199856003202229856006602261128-110524CH-001817-320110524234510.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa110524e20110611sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719596370a10.4171/0962doi ach0018173 7aPBFL2bicssc a13-xxa14-xxa17-xx2msc1 aCalaque, Damien,eauthor.10aLectures on Duflo Isomorphisms in Lie Algebra and Complex Geometryh[electronic resource] /cDamien Calaque, Carlo A.

It is
an isomorphism between invariant polynomials of a Lie algebra and the center
of its universal enveloping algebra, generalizing the pioneering work of
Harish-Chandra on semi-simple Lie algebras. Later on, Duflo’s result was refound by
Kontsevich in the framework of deformation quantization, who also observed
that there is a similar isomorphism between Dolbeault cohomology of holomorphic
polyvector fields on a complex manifold and its Hochschild cohomology.
The present book, which arose from a series of lectures by the first author at
ETH, derives these two isomorphisms from a Duflo-type result for Q-manifolds.
All notions mentioned above are introduced and explained in the book, the only
prerequisites being basic linear algebra and differential geometry. In addition
to standard notions such as Lie (super)algebras, complex manifolds, Hochschild
and Chevalley–Eilenberg cohomologies, spectral sequences, Atiyah and Todd
classes, the graphical calculus introduced by Kontsevich in his seminal work on
deformation quantization is addressed in details.
The book is well-suited for graduate students in mathematics and mathematical
physics as well as for researchers working in Lie theory, algebraic geometry and
deformation theory.07aFields & rings2bicssc07aCommutative rings and algebras2msc07aAlgebraic geometry2msc07aNonassociative rings and algebras2msc1 aRossi, Carlo A.,eauthor.40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/096423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/calaque_mini.jpg03005nam a22003855a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001600168084003600184245011700220260008200337300003400419336002600453337002600479338003600505347002400541490005000565505040200615506006501017520124601082650004502328650004802373650002302421650002902444650002402473700002602497856003202523856006402555129-110706CH-001817-320110706234510.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa110706e20110706sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719508670a10.4171/0082doi ach0018173 7aPBK2bicssc a58-xxa11-xxa46-xxa81-xx2msc10aNoncommutative Geometry and Physics: Renormalisation, Motives, Index Theoryh[electronic resource] /cAlan Carey3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2011 a1 online resource (280 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aESI Lectures in Mathematics and Physics (ESI)00tNotes on Feynman integrals and renormalization /rChristoph Bergbauer --tIntroduction to motives /rSujatha Ramdorai, Jorge Plazas, Matilde Marcolli --tA short survey on pre-Lie algebras /rDominique Manchon --tDivergent multiple sums and integrals with constraints: a comparative study /rSylvie Paycha --tSpectral triples: examples and index theory /rAlan Carey, John Phillips, Adam Rennie.1 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aThis collection of expository articles grew out of the workshop “Number Theory and Physics” held in March 2009 at the The Erwin Schrödinger International Institute for Mathematical Physics, Vienna. The common theme of the articles is the influence of ideas from noncommutative geometry (NCG) on subjects ranging from number theory to Lie algebras, index theory, and mathematical physics.
Matilde Marcolli’s article gives a survey of relevant aspects of NCG in number theory, building on an introduction to motives for beginners by Jorge Plazas and Sujatha Ramdorai. A mildly unconventional view of index theory from the viewpoint of NCG is described in the article by Alan Carey, John Phillips and Adam Rennie. As developed by Alain Connes and Dirk Kreimer, NCG also provides insight into novel algebraic structures underlying many analytic aspects of quantum field theory. Dominique Manchon's article on pre-Lie algebras fits into this developing research area. This interplay of algebraic and analytic techniques
also appears in the articles by Christoph Bergbauer, who introduces renormalisation theory and Feynman diagram methods, and Sylvie Paycha, who focuses on relations between renormalisation and zeta function techniques.07aCalculus & mathematical analysis2bicssc07aGlobal analysis, analysis on manifolds2msc07aNumber theory2msc07aFunctional analysis2msc07aQuantum theory2msc1 aCarey, Alan,eeditor.40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/008423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/carey_mini.jpg02760nam a22003735a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001700168084002200185100002800207245017300235260008200408300003400490336002600524337002600550338003600576347002400612490004000636506006500676520138200741650003102123650002802154650004602182700003302228700002902261856003202290856006402322130-110815CH-001817-320110815234510.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa110815e20110811sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719583370a10.4171/0832doi ach0018173 7aPBPD2bicssc a55-xxa18-xx2msc1 aBrown, Ronald,eauthor.10aNonabelian Algebraic Topologyh[electronic resource] :bFiltered Spaces, Crossed Complexes, Cubical Homotopy Groupoids /cRonald Brown, Philip J.

just topological spaces allows the development of basic algebraic topology in
terms of higher homotopy groupoids; these algebraic structures better
reflect the geometry of subdivision and composition than those commonly in
use. Exploration of these uses of higher dimensional versions of groupoids
has been largely the work of the first two authors since the mid 1960s.
The structure of the book is intended to make it useful to a wide class of
students and researchers for learning and evaluating these methods, primarily
in algebraic topology but also in higher category theory and its applications
in analogous areas of mathematics, physics and computer science.
Part I explains the intuitions and theory in dimensions 1 and 2, with many
figures and diagrams, and a detailed account of the theory of crossed
modules. Part II develops the applications of crossed complexes. The engine
driving these applications is the work of Part III on cubical ω-groupoids,
their relations to crossed complexes, and their homotopically defined examples
for filtered spaces. Part III also includes a chapter suggesting further
directions and problems, and three appendices give accounts of some
relevant aspects of category theory. Endnotes for each chapter give further
history and references.07aAlgebraic topology2bicssc07aAlgebraic topology2msc07aCategory theory; homological algebra2msc1 aHiggins, Philip J.,eauthor.1 aSivera, Rafael,eauthor.40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/083423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/brown_mini.jpg02837nam a22003495a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001600168084001500184100003000199245008800229260008200317300003400399336002600433337002600459338003600485347002400521490004000545506006500585520161000650650004502260650005502305700002702360856003202387856006802419131-110815CH-001817-320110815234510.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa110815e20110811sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719598770a10.4171/0982doi ach0018173 7aPBK2bicssc a32-xx2msc1 aJarnicki, Marek,eauthor.10aSeparately Analytic Functionsh[electronic resource] /cMarek Jarnicki, Peter Pflug3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2011 a1 online resource (306 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aEMS Tracts in Mathematics (ETM)v161 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aThe story of separately holomorphic functions began about 100 years ago.
During the second half of the 19th century, it became known that a separately
continuous function is not necessarily continuous as a function of all
variables. At the beginning of the 20th century, the study of separately
holomorphic functions started due to the fundamental work of Osgood and
Hartogs.
This book provides the first self-contained and complete presentation of the
study of separately holomorphic functions, starting from its birth up to
current research. Most of the results presented have never been published
before in book form. The text is divided into two parts. A more elementary
one deals with separately holomorphic functions “without singularities”,
another addresses the situation of existing singularities. A discussion of the
classical results related to separately holomorphic functions leads to the
most fundamental result, the classical cross theorem as well as various
extensions and generalizations to more complicated “crosses”. Additionally,
several applications for other classes of “separately regular” functions are
given.
A solid background in basic complex analysis is a prerequisite. In order to
make the book self-contained, all the results needed for its understanding
are collected in special introductory chapters and referred to at the beginning
of each section.
The book is addressed to students and researchers in several complex
variables as well as to mathematicians and theoretical physicists who are
interested in this area of mathematics.07aCalculus & mathematical analysis2bicssc07aSeveral complex variables and analytic spaces2msc1 aPflug, Peter,eauthor.40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/098423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/jarnicki2_mini.jpg02589nam a22003975a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001600168084003600184100003100220245011700251260008200368300003400450336002600484337002600510338003600536347002400572490004800596506006500644520110800709650004501817650004801862650002801910650004301938650005501981700002902036700002802065856003202093856006602125132-110806CH-001817-320110806234510.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa110806e20110806sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719597070a10.4171/0972doi ach0018173 7aPBK2bicssc a58-xxa14-xxa17-xxa32-xx2msc1 aCarmeli, Claudio,eauthor.10aMathematical Foundations of Supersymmetryh[electronic resource] /cClaudio Carmeli, Lauren Caston, Rita Fioresi3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2011 a1 online resource (300 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aEMS Series of Lectures in Mathematics (ELM)1 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aSupersymmetry is a highly active area of considerable interest among physicists
and mathematicians. It is not only fascinating in its own right, but there is also
indication that it plays a fundamental role in the physics of elementary particles
and gravitation.
The purpose of the book is to lay down the foundations of the subject, providing
the reader with a comprehensive introduction to the language and techniques,
with a special attention to giving detailed proofs and many clarifying examples.
It is aimed ideally at a second year graduate student. After the first three introductory
chapters, the text divides into two parts: the theory of smooth supermanifolds
and Lie supergroups, including the Frobenius theorem, and the theory
of algebraic superschemes and supergroups. There are three appendices, the first
introducing Lie superalgebras and representations of classical Lie superalgebras,
the second collecting some relevant facts on categories, sheafification of functors
and commutative algebra, and the third explaining the notion of Fréchet
space in the super context.07aCalculus & mathematical analysis2bicssc07aGlobal analysis, analysis on manifolds2msc07aAlgebraic geometry2msc07aNonassociative rings and algebras2msc07aSeveral complex variables and analytic spaces2msc1 aCaston, Lauren,eauthor.1 aFioresi, Rita,eauthor.40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/097423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/carmeli_mini.jpg03157nam a22003735a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001700168084001500185245010600200260008200306300003400388336002600422337002600448338003600474347002400510490004100534505113900575506006501714520074401779650002402523650005302547700002802600700003002628700002902658856003202687856006402719133-110815CH-001817-320110815234510.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa110815e20110810sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719572770a10.4171/0722doi ach0018173 7aPBWL2bicssc a60-xx2msc10aSurveys in Stochastic Processesh[electronic resource] /cJochen Blath, Peter Imkeller, Sylvie Rœlly3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2011 a1 online resource (263 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aEMS Series of Congress Reports (ECR)00tOptimal switching, systems of reflected BSDEs and systems of variational inequalities with inter-connected obstacles /rSaïd Hamadène --tThe COGARCH: a review, with news on option pricing and statistical inference /rClaudia Klüppelberg, Ross Maller, Alexander Szimayer --tSome properties of quasi-stationary distributions for finite Markov chains /rServet Martínez, Jaime San Martín --tThe parabolic Anderson model with heavy-tailed potential /rPeter Mörters --tFrom exploration paths to mass excursions – variations on a theme of Ray and Knight /rEtienne Pardoux, Anton Wakolbinger --tGaussian approximation of functionals: Malliavin calculus and Stein’s method /rGesine Reinert --tMerging and stability for time inhomogeneous finite Markov chains /rLaurent Saloff-Coste, Jessica Zúñiga --tSome mathematical aspects of market impact modeling /rAlexander Schied, Alla Slynko --tThe self-avoiding walk: A brief survey /rGordon Slade --t$L^p$-independence of growth bounds of Feynman–Kac semigroups /rMasayoshi Takeda --tSome recent progress on functional inequalities and applications /rFeng-Yu Wang.1 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aThe 33rd Bernoulli Society Conference on “Stochastic Processes and Their Applications” was held in Berlin from July 27 to July 31, 2009.

This is due to the fact that the linearized operators about such special solutions typically exhibit negative eigenvalues (a single one for the ground state), which lead to exponential instability of the linearized flow and allows for ideas from hyperbolic dynamics to enter.
One of the main results proved here for energy subcritical equations is that the center-stable manifold associated with the ground state appears as a hyper-surface which separates a region of finite-time blowup in forward time from one which exhibits global existence and scattering to zero in forward time. Our entire analysis takes place in the energy topology, and the conserved energy can exceed the ground state energy only by a small amount.
This monograph is based on recent research by the authors and the proofs rely on an interplay between the variational structure of the ground states on the one hand, and the nonlinear hyperbolic dynamics near these states on the other hand. A key element in the proof is a virial-type argument excluding almost homoclinic orbits originating near the ground states, and returning to them, possibly after a long excursion.
These lectures are suitable for graduate students and researchers in partial differential equations and mathematical physics. For the cubic Klein–Gordon equation in three dimensions all details are provided, including the derivation of Strichartz estimates for the free equation and the concentration-compactness argument leading to scattering due to Kenig and Merle.07aDifferential equations2bicssc07aPartial differential equations2msc1 aSchlag, Wilhelm,eauthor.40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/095423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/schlag_mini.jpg04218nam a22003615a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001700168084001500185245011300200260008200313300003400395336002600429337002600455338003600481347002400517490004100541505112400582506006501706520185601771650002703627650004003654700003503694700003003729856003203759856006503791135-110909CH-001817-320110909234510.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa110909e20110924sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719601470a10.4171/1012doi ach0018173 7aPBFL2bicssc a16-xx2msc10aRepresentations of Algebras and Related Topicsh[electronic resource] /cAndrzej Skowroński, Kunio Yamagata3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2011 a1 online resource (740 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aEMS Series of Congress Reports (ECR)00tOn generalized cluster categories /rClaire Amiot --tModule categories for finite group algebras /rDavid J.

The question at stake is the nature of mathematical knowledge and the difference between a question and an answer, i.e., the implicit and the explicit. The problem is delicate mathematically and philosophically as well: the relation between a question and its answer is a sort of equality where one side is “more equal than the other”: one thus discovers essentialist blind spots.
Starting with Gödel’s paradox (1931) – so to speak, the incompleteness of answers with respect to questions – the book proceeds with paradigms inherited from Gentzen’s cut-elimination (1935). Various settings are studied: sequent calculus, natural deduction, lambda calculi, category-theoretic composition, up to geometry of interaction (GoI), all devoted to explicitation, which eventually amounts to inverting an operator in a von Neumann algebra.
Mathematical language is usually described as referring to a preexisting reality. Logical operations can be given an alternative procedural meaning: typically, the operators involved in GoI are invertible, not because they are constructed according to the book, but because logical rules are those ensuring invertibility. Similarly, the durability of truth should not be taken for granted: one should distinguish between imperfect (perennial) and perfect modes. The procedural explanation of the infinite thus identifies it with the unfinished, i.e., the perennial. But is perenniality perennial? This questioning yields a possible logical explanation for algorithmic complexity.
This highly original course on logic by one of the world’s leading proof theorists challenges mathematicians, computer scientists, physicists and philosophers to rethink their views and concepts on the nature of mathematical knowledge in an exceptionally profound way.07aMathematical logic2bicssc07aMathematical logic and foundations2msc07aCategory theory; homological algebra2msc07aComputer science2msc40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/088423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/girard_mini.jpg03271nam a22003495a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001600168084002200184100003200206245013500238260008200373300003400455336002600489337002600515338003600541347002400577490004300601506006500644520200600709650003502715650003102750650004202781856003202823856006602855137-111013CH-001817-320111013234510.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa111013e20111020sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719604570a10.4171/1042doi ach0018173 7aPBX2bicssc a01-xxa20-xx2msc1 aNeumann, Peter M.,eauthor.10aThe mathematical writings of Évariste Galoish[electronic resource] :bCorrected 2nd printing, September 2013 /cPeter M.

He invented what is now called Galois Theory, the modern form of what was classically the Theory of Equations. For that purpose, and in particular to formulate a precise condition for solubility of equations by radicals, he also invented groups and began investigating their theory. His main writings were published in French in 1846 and there have been a number of French editions culminating in the great work published by Bourgne & Azra in 1962 containing transcriptions of every page and fragment of the manuscripts that survive. Very few items have been available in English up to now.
The present work contains English translations of almost all the Galois material. They are presented alongside a new transcription of the original French, and are enhanced by three levels of commentary. An introduction explains the context of Galois' work, the various publications in which it appears, and the vagaries of his manuscripts. Then there is a chapter in which the five mathematical articles published in his lifetime are reprinted. After that come the Testamentary Letter and the First Memoir (in which Galois expounded the ideas now called Galois Theory), which are the most famous of the manuscripts. There follow the less well known manuscripts, namely the Second Memoir and the many fragments. A short epilogue devoted to myths and mysteries concludes the text.
The book is written as a contribution to the history of mathematics but with mathematicans as well as historians in mind. It makes available to a wide mathematical and historical readership some of the most exciting mathematics of the first half of the 19th century, presented in its original form. The primary aim is to establish a text of what Galois wrote.

to the modern representation theory of Frobenius algebras. The first
part of the book serves as a general introduction to basic results and techniques
of the modern representation theory of finite dimensional associative
algebras over fields, including the Morita theory of equivalences and dualities
and the Auslander–Reiten theory of irreducible morphisms and almost
split sequences.
The second part is devoted to fundamental classical and recent results concerning
the Frobenius algebras and their module categories. Moreover, the
prominent classes of Frobenius algebras, the Hecke algebras of Coxeter
groups and the finite dimensional Hopf algebras over fields are exhibited.
This volume is self-contained and the only prerequisite is a basic knowledge
of linear algebra. It includes complete proofs of all results presented and provides
a rich supply of examples and exercises.
The text is primarily addressed to graduate students starting research in
the representation theory of algebras as well mathematicians working in
other fields.07aFields & rings2bicssc07aAssociative rings and algebras2msc1 aYamagata, Kunio,eauthor.40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/102423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/skowronski_text1_mini.jpg02685nam a22003495a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001600168084001500184100002900199245010100228260008200329300003400411336002600445337002600471338003600497347002400533490004000557506006500597520147800662650004502140650002602185700002702211856003202238856006502270141-111105CH-001817-320111105234510.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa111105e20111105sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719599470a10.4171/0992doi ach0018173 7aPBK2bicssc a31-xx2msc1 aBjörn, Anders,eauthor.10aNonlinear Potential Theory on Metric Spacesh[electronic resource] /cAnders Björn, Jana Björn3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2011 a1 online resource (415 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aEMS Tracts in Mathematics (ETM)v171 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aThe p-Laplace equation is the main prototype for nonlinear elliptic problems
and forms a basis for various applications, such as injection moulding of
plastics, nonlinear elasticity theory and image processing. Its solutions,
called p-harmonic functions, have been studied in various contexts since
the 1960s, first on Euclidean spaces and later on Riemannian manifolds,
graphs and Heisenberg groups. Nonlinear potential theory of p-harmonic
functions on metric spaces has been developing since the 1990s and
generalizes and unites these earlier theories.
This monograph gives a unified treatment of the subject and covers most
of the available results in the field, so far scattered over a large number
of research papers. The aim is to serve both as an introduction to the area
for an interested reader and as a reference text for an active researcher.
The presentation is rather self-contained, but the reader is assumed to
know measure theory and functional analysis.
The first half of the book deals with Sobolev type spaces, so-called
Newtonian spaces, based on upper gradients on general metric spaces. In
the second half, these spaces are used to study p-harmonic functions
on metric spaces and a nonlinear potential theory is developed under some
additional, but natural, assumptions on the underlying metric space.
Each chapter contains historical notes with relevant references and an
extensive index is provided at the end of the book.07aCalculus & mathematical analysis2bicssc07aPotential theory2msc1 aBjörn, Jana,eauthor.40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/099423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/björn_mini.jpg02409nam a22003615a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001600168084002900184100002600213245010000239260008200339300003400421336002600455337002600481338003600507347002400543490005100567506006500618520112400683650003101807650002801838650004001866650004601906856003201952856006301984143-111229CH-001817-320111229234510.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa111229e20120114sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719600770a10.4171/1002doi ach0018173 7aPBS2bicssc a65-xxa35-xxa37-xx2msc1 aFaou, Erwan,eauthor.10aGeometric Numerical Integration and Schrödinger Equationsh[electronic resource] /cErwan Faou3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2012 a1 online resource (146 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aZurich Lectures in Advanced Mathematics (ZLAM)1 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aThe goal of geometric numerical integration is the simulation of evolution
equations possessing geometric properties over long times. Of particular importance
are Hamiltonian partial differential equations typically arising in application
fields such as quantum mechanics or wave propagation phenomena. They
exhibit many important dynamical features such as energy preservation and
conservation of adiabatic invariants over long time. In this setting, a natural
question is how and to which extent the reproduction of such long time qualitative
behavior can be ensured by numerical schemes.
Starting from numerical examples, these notes provide a detailed analysis of the
Schrödinger equation in a simple setting (periodic boundary conditions, polynomial
nonlinearities) approximated by symplectic splitting methods. Analysis
of stability and instability phenomena induced by space and time discretization
are given, and rigorous mathematical explanations for them.
The book grew out of a graduate level course and is of interest to researchers
and students seeking an introduction to the subject matter.07aNumerical analysis2bicssc07aNumerical analysis2msc07aPartial differential equations2msc07aDynamical systems and ergodic theory2msc40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/100423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/faou_mini.jpg02970nam a22003495a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001700168084002200185100003200207245007700239260008200316300003400398336002600432337002600458338003600484347002400520490003800544506006500582520175100647650002902398650004102427650005502468856003202523856006502555144-111229CH-001817-320111229234510.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa111229e20120102sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719575870a10.4171/0752doi ach0018173 7aPBKD2bicssc a30-xxa32-xx2msc1 aPenner, Robert C.,eauthor.10aDecorated Teichmüller Theoryh[electronic resource] /cRobert C.

Teichmüller space of a punctured surface, called the decorated Teichmüller
space, where the fiber over a point is the space of all tuples of horocycles, one
about each puncture. This model leads to an extension of the classical mapping
class groups called the Ptolemy groupoids and to certain matrix models solving
related enumerative problems, each of which has proved useful both in mathematics
and in theoretical physics. These spaces enjoy several related parametrizations
leading to a rich and intricate algebro-geometric structure tied to the already
elaborate combinatorial structure of the tinker-toy model. Indeed, the natural
coordinates give the prototypical examples not only of cluster algebras but also
of tropicalization. This interplay of combinatorics and coordinates admits further
manifestations, for example, in a Lie theory for homeomorphisms of the circle,
in the geometry underlying the Gauss product, in profinite and pronilpotent geometry,
in the combinatorics underlying conformal and topological quantum field
theories, and in the geometry and combinatorics of macromolecules.
This volume gives the story and wider context of these decorated Teichmüller
spaces as developed by the author over the last two decades in a series of
papers, some of them in collaboration. Sometimes correcting errors or typos,
sometimes simplifying proofs and sometimes articulating more general formulations
than the original research papers, this volume is self-contained and
requires little formal background. Based on a master’s course at Aarhus University,
it gives the first treatment of these works in monographic form.07aComplex analysis2bicssc07aFunctions of a complex variable2msc07aSeveral complex variables and analytic spaces2msc40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/075423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/penner_mini.jpg02748nam a22003615a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001600168084002200184245008800206260008200294300003400376336002600410337002600436338003600462347002400498490006800522505062000590506006501210520090401275650002102179650001802200650003802218700003702256856003202293856006102325145-120118CH-001817-320120118234510.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa120118e20120118sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719605270a10.4171/1052doi ach0018173 7aPBM2bicssc a51-xxa57-xx2msc10aStrasbourg Master Class on Geometryh[electronic resource] /cAthanase Papadopoulos3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2012 a1 online resource (461 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aIRMA Lectures in Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (IRMA)v1800tNotes on non-Euclidean geometry /rNorbert A’Campo, Athanase Papadopoulos --tCrossroads between hyperbolic geometry and number theory /rFrançoise Dal’Bo --tIntroduction to origamis in Teichmüller space /rFrank Herrlich --tFive lectures on 3-manifold topology /rPhilipp Korablev, Sergey V.

The aim of the master classes was to give to fifth-year students and PhD students in mathematics the opportunity to learn new topics that lead directly to the current research in geometry and topology. The courses were held by leading experts. The subjects treated include hyperbolic geometry, three-manifold topology, representation theory of fundamental groups of surfaces and of three-manifolds, dynamics on the hyperbolic plane with applications to number theory, Riemann surfaces, Teichmüller theory, Lie groups and asymptotic geometry.
The text is addressed to students and mathematicians who wish to learn the subject. It can also be used as a reference book and as a textbook for short courses on geometry.07aGeometry2bicssc07aGeometry2msc07aManifolds and cell complexes2msc1 aPapadopoulos, Athanase,eeditor.40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/105423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/irma_18.jpg03152nam a22003855a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001700168072001700185084002200202100003100224245011100255260008200366300003400448336002600482337002600508338003600534347002400570490004000594506006500634520178600699650003502485650004702520650004002567650003102607700003002638856003202668856006602700146-120207CH-001817-320120207234510.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa120207e20120209sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719606970a10.4171/1062doi ach0018173 7aPBKJ2bicssc 7aPBMP2bicssc a35-xxa53-xx2msc1 aKrieger, Joachim,eauthor.10aConcentration Compactness for Critical Wave Mapsh[electronic resource] /cJoachim Krieger, Wilhelm Schlag3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2012 a1 online resource (490 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aEMS Monographs in Mathematics (EMM)1 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aWave maps are the simplest wave equations taking their values in a Riemannian
manifold $(M,g)$. Their Lagrangian is the same as for the scalar equation, the only
difference being that lengths are measured with respect to the metric $g$. By
Noether's theorem, symmetries of the Lagrangian imply conservation laws for
wave maps, such as conservation of energy.
In coordinates, wave maps are given by a system of semilinear wave equations.
Over the past 20 years important methods have emerged which address the
problem of local and global wellposedness of this system. Due to weak dispersive
effects, wave maps defined on Minkowski spaces of low dimensions, such as $\mathbb R^{2+1}_{t,x}$, present particular technical difficulties. This class of wave maps has the additional important feature of being energy critical, which refers to the fact that
the energy scales exactly like the equation.
Around 2000 Daniel Tataru and Terence Tao, building on earlier work of
Klainerman–Machedon, proved that smooth data of small energy lead to global
smooth solutions for wave maps from 2+1 dimensions into target manifolds
satisfying some natural conditions. In contrast, for large data, singularities may
occur in finite time for $M =\mathbb S^2$ as target. This monograph establishes that for
$\mathbb H$ as target the wave map evolution of any smooth data exists globally as a
smooth function.
While we restrict ourselves to the hyperbolic plane as target the implementation
of the concentration-compactness method, the most challenging piece of this
exposition, yields more detailed information on the solution. This monograph
will be of interest to experts in nonlinear dispersive equations, in particular to
those working on geometric evolution equations.07aDifferential equations2bicssc07aDifferential & Riemannian geometry2bicssc07aPartial differential equations2msc07aDifferential geometry2msc1 aSchlag, Wilhelm,eauthor.40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/106423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/krieger_mini.jpg02072nam a22003735a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001700168084003600185100002800221245011900249260008200368300003400450336002600484337002600510338003600536347002400572490004800596506006500644520073500709650003201444650002901476650003901505650002601544650002601570856003201596856007001628147-120316CH-001817-320120316234500.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa120316e20120316sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719607670a10.4171/1072doi ach0018173 7aPBKG2bicssc a46-xxa41-xxa42-xxa68-xx2msc1 aTriebel, Hans,eauthor.10aFaber Systems and Their Use in Sampling, Discrepancy, Numerical Integrationh[electronic resource] /cHans Triebel3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2012 a1 online resource (115 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aEMS Series of Lectures in Mathematics (ELM)1 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aThis book deals first with Haar bases, Faber bases and Faber frames for weighted
function spaces on the real line and the plane. It extends results in the author’s
book Bases in Function Spaces, Sampling, Discrepancy, Numerical Integration
(EMS, 2010) from unweighted spaces (preferably in cubes) to weighted spaces.
The obtained assertions are used to study sampling and numerical integration
in weighted spaces on the real line and weighted spaces with dominating mixed
smoothness in the plane. A short chapter deals with the discrepancy for spaces
on intervals.
The book is addressed to graduate students and mathematicians having a
working knowledge of basic elements of function spaces and approximation
theory.07aFunctional analysis2bicssc07aFunctional analysis2msc07aApproximations and expansions2msc07aFourier analysis2msc07aComputer science2msc40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/107423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/triebel-mini-lec.jpg02499nam a22003615a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001600168084002900184100003500213245008900248260008200337300003400419336002600453337002600479338003600505347002400541490003800565506006500603520122200668650002001890650004601910650004301956650003801999856003202037856006802069148-120316CH-001817-320120316234500.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa120316e20120316sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719608370a10.4171/1082doi ach0018173 7aPBF2bicssc a18-xxa17-xxa57-xx2msc1 aMazorchuk, Volodymyr,eauthor.10aLectures on Algebraic Categorificationh[electronic resource] /cVolodymyr Mazorchuk3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2012 a1 online resource (128 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aThe QGM Master Class Series (QGM)1 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aThe term “categorification” was introduced by Louis Crane in 1995 and refers to
the process of replacing set-theoretic notions by the corresponding category-theoretic
analogues.
This text mostly concentrates on algebraical aspects of the theory, presented
in the historical perspective, but also contains several topological applications,
in particular, an algebraic (or, more precisely, representation-theoretical) approach
to categorification. It consists of fifteen sections corresponding to fifteen
one-hour lectures given during a Master Class at Aarhus University, Denmark in
October 2010. There are some exercises collected at the end of the text and a
rather extensive list of references. Video recordings of all (but one) lectures are
available from the Master Class website.
The book provides an introductory overview of the subject rather than a fully
detailed monograph. Emphasis is on definitions, examples and formulations of
the results. Most proofs are either briefly outlined or omitted. However, complete
proofs can be found by tracking references. It is assumed that the reader is
familiar with the basics of category theory, representation theory, topology and
Lie algebra.07aAlgebra2bicssc07aCategory theory; homological algebra2msc07aNonassociative rings and algebras2msc07aManifolds and cell complexes2msc40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/108423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/mazorchuk_mini.jpg02467nam a22003495a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001600168084002200184100003400206245010100240260008200341300003400423336002600457337002600483338003600509347002400545490005100569506006500620520119100685650003701876650005301913650005201966856003202018856006702050149-120503CH-001817-320120503234500.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa120503e20120511sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719609070a10.4171/1092doi ach0018173 7aPBT2bicssc a60-xxa82-xx2msc1 aSznitman, Alain-Sol,eauthor.10aTopics in Occupation Times and Gaussian Free Fieldsh[electronic resource] /cAlain-Sol Sznitman3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2012 a1 online resource (121 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aZurich Lectures in Advanced Mathematics (ZLAM)1 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aThis book grew out of a graduate course at ETH Zurich during the Spring term
2011. It explores various links between such notions as occupation times of
Markov chains, Gaussian free fields, Poisson point processes of Markovian loops,
and random interlacements, which have been the object of intensive research
over the last few years. These notions are developed in the convenient set-up
of finite weighted graphs endowed with killing measures.
The book first discusses elements of continuous-time Markov chains, Dirichlet
forms, potential theory, together with some consequences for Gaussian free
fields. Next, isomorphism theorems and generalized Ray-Knight theorems,
which relate occupation times of Markov chains to Gaussian free fields, are pre-
sented. Markovian loops are constructed and some of their key properties
derived. The field of occupation times of Poisson point processes of Markovian
loops is investigated. Of special interest are its connection to the Gaussian free
field, and a formula of Symanzik. Finally, links between random interlacements
and Markovian loops are discussed, and some further connections with
Gaussian free fields are mentioned.07aProbability & statistics2bicssc07aProbability theory and stochastic processes2msc07aStatistical mechanics, structure of matter2msc40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/109423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/sznitman_mini.jpg02669nam a22003615a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001600168084002900184100002500213245007200238260008200310300003400392336002600426337002600452338003600478347002400514490004800538506006500586520143700651650004102088650002302129650004202152650001802194856003202212856006302244152-120613CH-001817-320120613234500.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa120613e20120613sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719610670a10.4171/1102doi ach0018173 7aPBV2bicssc a05-xxa20-xxa51-xx2msc1 aThas, Koen,eauthor.10aA Course on Elation Quadranglesh[electronic resource] /cKoen Thas3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2012 a1 online resource (129 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aEMS Series of Lectures in Mathematics (ELM)1 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aThe notion of elation generalized quadrangle is a natural generalization to
the theory of generalized quadrangles of the important notion of translation
planes in the theory of projective planes. Almost any known class of finite
generalized quadrangles can be constructed from a suitable class of elation
quadrangles.
In this book the author considers several aspects of the theory of elation generalized
quadrangles. Special attention is given to local Moufang conditions
on the foundational level, exploring for instance a question of Knarr from
the 1990s concerning the very notion of elation quadrangles. All the known
results on Kantor’s prime power conjecture for finite elation quadrangles are
gathered, some of them published here for the first time. The structural theory
of elation quadrangles and their groups is heavily emphasized. Other related
topics, such as p-modular cohomology, Heisenberg groups and existence problems
for certain translation nets, are briefly touched.
The text starts from scratch and is essentially self-contained. Many alternative
proofs are given for known theorems. Containing dozens of exercises at
various levels, from very easy to rather difficult, this course will stimulate
undergraduate and graduate students to enter the fascinating and rich world
of elation quadrangles. The more accomplished mathematician will especially
find the final chapters challenging.07aCombinatorics & graph theory2bicssc07aCombinatorics2msc07aGroup theory and generalizations2msc07aGeometry2msc40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/110423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/thas_mini.jpg04140nam a22003615a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001700168084002200185245009600207260008200303300003400385336002600419337002600445338003600471347002400507490006800531505142300599506006502022520143202087650002903519650004103548650005503589700003703644856003203681856006503713153-120609CH-001817-320120609234500.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa120609e20120608sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719603870a10.4171/1032doi ach0018173 7aPBKD2bicssc a30-xxa32-xx2msc10aHandbook of Teichmüller Theory, Volume IIIh[electronic resource] /cAthanase Papadopoulos3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2012 a1 online resource (874 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aIRMA Lectures in Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (IRMA)v1700tIntroduction to Teichmüller theory, old and new, III /rAthanase Papadopoulos --tQuasiconformal and BMO-quasiconformal homeomorphisms /rJean-Pierre Otal --tEarthquakes on the hyperbolic plane /rJun Hu --tKerckhoff’s lines of minima in Teichmüller space /rCaroline Series --tA tale of two groups: arithmetic groups and mapping class groups /rLizhen Ji --tSimplicial actions of mapping class groups /rJohn D.

This includes the study of vector bundles on these moduli spaces, the study of mapping class groups, the relation with 3-manifolds, the relation with symmetric spaces and arithmetic groups, the representation theory of fundamental groups, and applications to physics. Thus the handbook is a place where several fields of mathematics interact: Riemann surfaces, hyperbolic geometry, partial differential equations, several complex variables, algebraic geometry, algebraic topology, combinatorial topology, low-dimensional topology, theoretical physics, and others. This confluence of ideas towards a unique subject is a manifestation of the unity and harmony of mathematics.
The present volume contains surveys on the fundamental theory as well as surveys on applications to and relations with the fields mentioned above. It is written by leading experts in the fields. Some of the surveys contain classical material, while others present the latest developments of the theory as well as open problems.
The metric and the analytic theory.
The group theory.
The algebraic topology of mapping class groups and moduli spaces.
Teichmüller theory and mathematical physics.
The handbook is addressed to graduate students and researchers in all the fields mentioned.07aComplex analysis2bicssc07aFunctions of a complex variable2msc07aSeveral complex variables and analytic spaces2msc1 aPapadopoulos, Athanase,eeditor.40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/103423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/irma17_mini.jpg04204nam a22003855a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001700168084003600185245010500221260008200326300003400408336002600442337002600468338003600494347002400530490004100554505175600595506006502351520110702416650003103523650002803554650002303582650005503605650003103660700002903691856003203720856006603752154-120815CH-001817-320120815234500.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa120815e20120815sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719614470a10.4171/1142doi ach0018173 7aPBMW2bicssc a14-xxa11-xxa32-xxa53-xx2msc10aContributions to Algebraic Geometryh[electronic resource] :bImpanga Lecture Notes /cPiotr Pragacz3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2012 a1 online resource (516 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aEMS Series of Congress Reports (ECR)00tThe influence of Oscar Zariski on algebraic geometry /rPiotr Blass --tThe geometry of T-varieties /rKlaus Altmann, Nathan O.

The following spectrum of topics is covered:
K3 surfaces and Enriques surfaces;
Prym varieties and their moduli;
invariants of singularities in birational geometry;
differential forms on singular spaces;
Minimal Model Program;
linear systems;
toric varieties;
Seshadri and packing constants;
equivariant cohomology;
Thom polynomials;
arithmetic questions.
The main purpose of the volume is to give comprehensive introductions to the above topics through texts starting from an elementary level and ending with the discussion of current research. The first four topics are represented by the notes from the minicourses held during the conference. In the articles the reader will find classical results and methods, as well as modern ones. The book is addressed to researchers and graduate students in algebraic geometry, singularity theory and algebraic topology. Most of the material exposed in the volume has not yet appeared in book form.07aAlgebraic geometry2bicssc07aAlgebraic geometry2msc07aNumber theory2msc07aSeveral complex variables and analytic spaces2msc07aDifferential geometry2msc1 aPragacz, Piotr,eeditor.40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/114423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/pragacz_mini.jpg03767nam a22004095a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001700168072001700185084002200202245009600224260008200320300003400402336002600436337002600462338003600488347002400524490004100548505190000589506006502489520050402554650003003058650003603088650002803124650002303152700002703175700002903202700002903231856003203260856006503292155-121009CH-001817-320121009234500.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa121009e20121019sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719619970a10.4171/1192doi ach0018173 7aPBMS2bicssc 7aPBRD2bicssc a14-xxa11-xx2msc10aGeometry and Arithmetich[electronic resource] /cCarel Faber, Gavril Farkas, Robin de Jong3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2012 a1 online resource (383 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aEMS Series of Congress Reports (ECR)00tNef divisors on $\M_{0,n}$ from GIT /rValery Alexeev, David Swinarski --tInoue type manifolds and Inoue surfaces: a connected component of the moduli space of surfaces with $K^2=7, p_g = 0$ /rIngrid Bauer, Fabrizio Catanese --tNon-rationality of the symmetric sextic Fano threefold /rArnaud Beauville --tBrill–Noether loci of stable rank-two vector bundles on a general curve /rCiro Ciliberto, Flaminio Flamini --tMordell–Weil groups and Zariski triples /rJosé Ignacio Cogolludo-Agustín, Remke Kloosterman --tApproximate computations with modular curves /rJean-Marc Couveignes, Bas Edixhoven --tA remark on a conjecture of Paranjape and Ramanan /rFriedrich Eusen, Frank-Olaf Schreyer --tOn extensions of the Torelli map /rAngela Gibney --tThe classes of singular moduli in the generalized Jacobian /rBenedict H.

The idea of large scale geometry can be traced back to Mostow’s work on rigidity and the work of Švarc, Milnor and Wolf on growth of groups. In the last decades, large scale geometry has found important applications in group theory, topology, geometry, higher index theory, computer science, and large data analysis.
This book provides a friendly approach to the basic theory of this exciting and fast growing subject and offers a glimpse of its applications to topology, geometry, and higher index theory.
The authors have made a conscientious effort to make the book accessible to advanced undergraduate students, graduate students, and non-experts.07aGeometry2bicssc07aGeometry2msc07aGroup theory and generalizations2msc1 aYu, Guoliang,eauthor.40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/112423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/nowak_mini.jpg02889nam a22003495a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001600168084001500184100002700199245015200226260008200378300003400460336002600494337002600520338003600546347002400582490004000606506006500646520163300711650003102344650002802375700003602403856003202439856006802471159-121029CH-001817-320121029234500.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa121029e20121029sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719616870a10.4171/1162doi ach0018173 7aPBS2bicssc a65-xx2msc1 aNovak, Erich,eauthor.10aTractability of Multivariate Problemsh[electronic resource] :bVolume III: Standard Information for Operators /cErich Novak, Henryk Woźniakowski3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2012 a1 online resource (604 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aEMS Tracts in Mathematics (ETM)v181 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aThis three-volume set is a comprehensive study of the tractability of multivariate problems. Volume I covers algorithms using linear information consisting of arbitrary continuous linear functionals. Volumes II and III are devoted to algorithms using standard information consisting of function values. Approximation of linear and selected nonlinear functionals is dealt with in volume II, and linear and selected nonlinear operators are studied in volume III. To a large extent, volume III can be read independently of volumes I and II.
The most important example studied in volume III is the approximation of multivariate functions. It turns out that many other linear and some nonlinear problems are closely related to the approximation of multivariate functions. While the lower bounds obtained in volume I for the class of linear information also yield lower bounds for the standard class of function values, new techniques for upper bounds are presented in volume III. One of the main issues here is to verify when the power of standard information is nearly the same as the power of linear information. In particular, for the approximation problem defined over Hilbert spaces, the power of standard and linear information is the same in the randomized and average case (with Gaussian measures) settings, whereas in the worst case setting this is not true.
The book is of interest to researchers working in computational mathematics, especially in approximation of high-dimensiona problems. It may be well suited for graduate courses and seminars. The text contains 58 open problems for future research in tractability.07aNumerical analysis2bicssc07aNumerical analysis2msc1 aWoźniakowski, Henryk,eauthor.40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/116423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/novak_III_mini.jpg04024nam a22003975a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001700168084003600185245011900221260008200340300003400422336002600456337002600482338003600508347002400544490006800568505132100636506006501957520124402022650003103266650002803297650005503325650003803380650004803418700003303466700002703499856003203526856006803558160-121218CH-001817-320121218234500.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa121218e20121218sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719618270a10.4171/1182doi ach0018173 7aPBMW2bicssc a14-xxa32-xxa57-xxa58-xx2msc10aSingularities in Geometry and Topologyh[electronic resource] :bStrasbourg 2009 /cVincent Blanlœil, Toru Ohmoto3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2012 a1 online resource (370 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aIRMA Lectures in Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (IRMA)v2000tOptical caustics and their modelling as singularities /rAlain Joets --tOn local equisingularity /rHelmut A.

The conference brought together an international group of researchers working on singularities in algebraic geometry, analytic geometry and topology, mainly from France and Japan. Besides, it also organized a special session, JSPS Forum on Singularities and Applications, which was aimed to introduce some recent applications of singularity theory to physics and statistics.
This book comprises research papers and short lecture notes on advanced topics on singularities. Some surveys on applications that were presented in the Forum are also added. Topics covered include splice surface singularities, b-functions, equisingularity, degenerating families of Riemann surfaces, hyperplane arrangements, mixed singularities, jet schemes, noncommutative blow-ups, characteristic classes of singular spaces, and applications to geometric optics, cosmology and learning theory.
Graduate students who wish to learn about various approaches to singularities, as well as experts in the field and researchers in other areas of mathematics and science will find the contributions to this volume a rich source for further study and research.07aAlgebraic geometry2bicssc07aAlgebraic geometry2msc07aSeveral complex variables and analytic spaces2msc07aManifolds and cell complexes2msc07aGlobal analysis, analysis on manifolds2msc1 aBlanlœil, Vincent,eeditor.1 aOhmoto, Toru,eeditor.40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/118423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/blanloeil_mini.jpg03675nam a22003735a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001700168084002900185245010100214260008200315300003400397336002600431337002600457338003600483347002400519490004100543505096900584506006501553520141401618650003103032650002803063650004003091650004003131700003103171856003203202856006703234161-130107CH-001817-320130107234500.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa130107e20130107sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719615170a10.4171/1152doi ach0018173 7aPBMW2bicssc a14-xxa13-xxa16-xx2msc10aDerived Categories in Algebraic Geometryh[electronic resource] :bTokyo 2011 /cYujiro Kawamata3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2013 a1 online resource (354 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aEMS Series of Congress Reports (ECR)00tCategorical representability and intermediate Jacobians of Fano threefolds /rMarcello Bernardara, Michele Bolognesi --tFourier–Mukai functors: a survey /rAlberto Canonaco, Paolo Stellari --tFlops and about: a guide /rSabin Cautis --tA note on derived categories of Fermat varieties /rAkira Ishii, Kazushi Ueda --tHomology of infinite loop spaces /rDmitry Kaledin --tCluster algebras and derived categories /rBernhard Keller --tSome derived equivalences between noncommutative schemes and algebras /rIzuru Mori --tLagrangian-invariant sheaves and functors for abelian varieties /rAlexander Polishchuk --tGeneric vanishing filtrations and perverse objects in derived categories of coherent sheaves /rMihnea Popa --tThe fundamental group is not a derived invariant /rChristian Schnell --tIntroduction and open problems of Donaldson–Thomas theory /rYukinobu Toda --tNotes on formal deformations of abelian categories /rMichel Van den Bergh.1 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aThe study of derived categories is a subject that attracts increasingly many young mathematicians from various fields of mathematics, including abstract algebra, algebraic geometry, representation theory and mathematical physics.
The concept of the derived category of sheaves was invented by Grothendieck and Verdier in the 1960s as a tool to express important results in algebraic geometry such as the duality theorem. In the 1970s, Beilinson, Gelfand and Gelfand discovered that a derived category of an algebraic variety may be equivalent to that of a finite dimensional non-commutative algebra, and Mukai found that there are non-isomorphic algebraic varieties that have equivalent derived categories. In this way the derived category provides a new concept that has many incarnations. In the 1990s, Bondal and Orlov uncovered an unexpected parallelism between derived categories and birational geometry. Kontsevich’s homological mirror symmetry provided further motivation for the study of derived categories.
This book is the proceedings of a conference held at the University of Tokyo in January 2011 on the current status of the research on derived categories related to algebraic geometry. Most articles are survey papers on this rapidly developing field. The book is suitable for young mathematicians who want to enter this exciting field. Some basic knowledge of algebraic geometry is assumed.07aAlgebraic geometry2bicssc07aAlgebraic geometry2msc07aCommutative rings and algebras2msc07aAssociative rings and algebras2msc1 aKawamata, Yujiro,eeditor.40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/115423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/kawamata_mini.jpg02336nam a22003375a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001600168084001500184100003000199245011100229260008200340300003400422336002600456337002600482338003600508347002400544490004300568506006500611520115700676650003501833650003101868856003201899856006701931162-130121CH-001817-320130121234500.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa130121e20130124sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719613770a10.4171/1132doi ach0018173 7aPBX2bicssc a01-xx2msc1 aRoquette, Peter,eauthor.10aContributions to the History of Number Theory in the 20th Centuryh[electronic resource] /cPeter Roquette3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2013 a1 online resource (289 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aHeritage of European Mathematics (HEM)1 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aThe 20th century was a time of great upheaval and great progress, mathematics not excluded. In order to get the overall picture of trends, developments and results it is illuminating to look at their manifestations
locally, in the personal life and work of people living at the time. The university archives of Göttingen harbor a wealth of papers, letters and manuscripts
from several generations of mathematicians – documents which tell us the
story of the historic developments from a local point of view.
The present
book offers a number of essays based on documents from Göttingen and
elsewhere – essays which are not yet contained in the author’s Collected Works. These little pieces, independent from each other, are meant as
contributions to the imposing mosaic of history of number theory. They are
written for mathematicians but with no special background requirements.

This book contains lectures presented at the international symposium Erwin Schrödinger – 50 Years After held at the Erwin Schrödinger International Institute for Mathematical Physics in January 2011 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Schrödinger’s death.
The text covers a broad spectrum of topics ranging from personal reminiscences to foundational questions of quantum mechanics and historical accounts of Schrödinger’s work. Besides the lectures presented at the symposium the volume also contains articles specially written for this occasion.
The contributions give an overview of Schrödinger’s legacy to the sciences from the standpoint of some of present day’s leading scholars in the field.
The book addresses students and researchers in mathematics, physics and the history of science.07aHistory of mathematics2bicssc07aHistory and biography2msc07aQuantum theory2msc1 aReiter, Wolfgang L.,eeditor.1 aYngvason, Jakob,eeditor.40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/121423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/reiter_mini.jpg02912nam a22003615a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001700168084002200185100002900207245012500236260008200361300003400443336002600477337002600503338003600529347002400565490003900589506006500628520160800693650002902301650004102330650005502371700002802426856003202454856006402486164-130506CH-001817-320130506234500.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa130506e20130506sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719611370a10.4171/1112doi ach0018173 7aPBKD2bicssc a30-xxa32-xx2msc1 aBruna, Joaquim,eauthor.10aComplex Analysish[electronic resource] :bTranslated from the Catalan by Ignacio Monreal /cJoaquim Bruna, Julià Cufí3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2013 a1 online resource (576 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aEMS Textbooks in Mathematics (ETB)1 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aThe theory of functions of a complex variable is a central theme in mathematical
analysis that has links to several branches of mathematics. Understanding
the basics of the theory is necessary for anyone who wants to have a general
mathematical training or for anyone who wants to use mathematics in applied
sciences or technology.
The book presents the basic theory of analytic functions of a complex variable
and their points of contact with other parts of mathematical analysis. This results
in some new approaches to a number of topics when compared to the current
literature on the subject.
Some issues covered are: a real version of the Cauchy–Goursat theorem, theorems
of vector analysis with weak regularity assumptions, an approach to the
concept of holomorphic functions of real variables, Green’s formula with multiplicities,
Cauchy’s theorem for locally exact forms, a study in parallel of Poisson’s
equation and the inhomogeneous Cauchy–Riemann equations, the relationship
between Green’s function and conformal mapping, the connection between
the solution of Poisson’s equation and zeros of holomorphic functions, and the
Whittaker–Shannon theorem of information theory.
The text can be used as a manual for complex variable courses of various levels
and as a reference book. The only prerequisites for reading it is a working knowledge
of the topology of the plane and the differential calculus for functions of
several real variables. A detailed treatment of harmonic functions also makes the
book useful as an introduction to potential theory.07aComplex analysis2bicssc07aFunctions of a complex variable2msc07aSeveral complex variables and analytic spaces2msc1 aCufí, Julià,eauthor.40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/111423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/bruna_mini.jpg02985nam a22003855a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001600168084002200184100003100206245018000237260008200417300003400499336002600533337002600559338003600585347002400621490004000645506006500685520152800750650004502278650004102323650004002364700003602404700002702440700003302467856003202500856006702532165-130524CH-001817-320130524234500.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa130524e20130529sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719622970a10.4171/1222doi ach0018173 7aPBK2bicssc a30-xxa35-xx2msc1 aBojarski, Bogdan,eauthor.10aInfinitesimal Geometry of Quasiconformal and Bi-Lipschitz Mappings in the Planeh[electronic resource] /cBogdan Bojarski, Vladimir Gutlyanskii, Olli Martio, Vladimir Ryazanov3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2013 a1 online resource (214 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aEMS Tracts in Mathematics (ETM)v191 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aThis book is intended for researchers interested in new aspects of local
behavior of plane mappings and their applications. The presentation is
self-contained, but the reader is assumed to know basic complex and real
analysis.
The study of the local and boundary behavior of quasiconformal and bi-Lipschitz mappings in the plane forms the core of the book. The concept
of the infinitesimal space is used to investigate the behavior of a mapping
at points without differentiability. This concept, based on compactness
properties, is applied to regularity problems of quasiconformal mappings
and quasiconformal curves, boundary behavior, weak and asymptotic
conformality, local winding properties, variation of quasiconformal
mappings, and criteria of univalence. Quasiconformal and bi-Lipschitz
mappings are instrumental for understanding elasticity, control theory
and tomography and the book also offers a new look at the classical
areas such as the boundary regularity of a conformal map. Complicated
local behavior is illustrated by many examples.
The text offers a detailed development of the background for graduate
students and researchers. Starting with the classical methods to study
quasiconformal mappings, this treatment advances to the concept of
the infinitesimal space and then relates it to other regularity properties
of mappings in Part II. The new unexpected connections between quasiconformal
and bi-Lipschitz mappings are treated in Part III. There is an
extensive bibliography.07aCalculus & mathematical analysis2bicssc07aFunctions of a complex variable2msc07aPartial differential equations2msc1 aGutlyanskii, Vladimir,eauthor.1 aMartio, Olli,eauthor.1 aRyazanov, Vladimir,eauthor.40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/122423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/bojarski_mini.jpg02380nam a22003615a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001700168084002900185100002800214245010100242260008200343300003400425336002600459337002600485338003600511347002400547490004000571506006500611520111500676650003201791650002901823650004001852650002601892856003201918856006801950166-130529CH-001817-320130529234500.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa130529e20130529sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719623670a10.4171/1232doi ach0018173 7aPBKG2bicssc a46-xxa35-xxa42-xx2msc1 aTriebel, Hans,eauthor.10aLocal Function Spaces, Heat and Navier–Stokes Equationsh[electronic resource] /cHans Triebel3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2013 a1 online resource (241 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aEMS Tracts in Mathematics (ETM)v201 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aIn this book a new approach is presented to exhibit relations between
Sobolev spaces, Besov spaces, and Hölder–Zygmund spaces on the one hand
and Morrey–Campanato spaces on the other. Morrey–Campanato spaces
extend the notion of functions of bounded mean oscillation. These spaces
play an important role in the theory of linear and nonlinear PDEs.
Chapters 1–3 deal with local smoothness spaces in Euclidean n-space based
on the Morrey–Campanato refinement of the Lebesgue spaces. The presented
approach relies on wavelet decompositions. This is applied in Chapter 4
to Gagliardo–Nirenberg inequalities. Chapter 5 deals with linear and nonlinear
heat equations in global and local function spaces. The obtained assertions
about function spaces and nonlinear heat equations are used in Chapter 6 to
study Navier–Stokes equations.
The book is addressed to graduate students and mathematicians having a
working knowledge of basic elements of (global) function spaces, and who
are interested in applications to nonlinear PDEs with heat and Navier–Stokes
equations as prototypes.07aFunctional analysis2bicssc07aFunctional analysis2msc07aPartial differential equations2msc07aFourier analysis2msc40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/123423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/triebel20_mini.jpg02638nam a22003735a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001600168084002900184100002700213245012300240260008200363300003400445336002600479337002600505338003600531347002400567490004000591506006500631520128300696650004501979650004602024650004102070650002802111700003002139856003202169856006302201167-130808CH-001817-320130808234500.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa130808e20130807sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719624370a10.4171/1242doi ach0018173 7aPBK2bicssc a37-xxa34-xxa65-xx2msc1 aNipp, Kaspar,eauthor.10aInvariant Manifolds in Discrete and Continuous Dynamical Systemsh[electronic resource] /cKaspar Nipp, Daniel Stoffer3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2013 a1 online resource (225 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aEMS Tracts in Mathematics (ETM)v211 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aIn this book dynamical systems are investigated from a geometric
viewpoint. Admitting an invariant manifold is a strong geometric property
of a dynamical system. This text presents rigorous results on invariant
manifolds and gives examples of possible applications.
In the first part discrete dynamical systems in Banach spaces are
considered. Results on the existence and smoothness of attractive and
repulsive invariant manifolds are derived. In addition, perturbations
and approximations of the manifolds and the foliation of the adjacent
space are treated. In the second part analogous results for continuous
dynamical systems in finite dimensions are established. In the third part
the theory developed is applied to problems in numerical analysis
and to singularly perturbed systems of ordinary differential equations.
The mathematical approach is based on the so-called graph transform,
already used by Hadamard in 1901. The aim is to establish invariant
manifold results in a simple setting providing quantitative estimates.
The book is targeted at researchers in the field of dynamical systems
interested in precise theorems easy to apply. The application part
might also serve as an underlying text for a student seminar in
mathematics.07aCalculus & mathematical analysis2bicssc07aDynamical systems and ergodic theory2msc07aOrdinary differential equations2msc07aNumerical analysis2msc1 aStoffer, Daniel,eauthor.40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/124423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/nipp_mini.jpg02902nam a22004095a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001500168084003600183100003400219245016900253260008200422300003500504336002600539337002600565338003600591347002400627490004300651506006500694520138400759650002402143650001702167650002302184650004302207650004202250700003402292700003402326700003702360856003202397856006302429168-131118CH-001817-320131118234500.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa131118e20131115sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719626770a10.4171/1262doi ach0018173 7aPB2bicssc a00-xxa05-xxa17-xxa20-xx2msc1 aBuekenhout, Francis,eauthor.10aJacques Tits, Œuvres – Collected Works Volumes I–IVh[electronic resource] /cFrancis Buekenhout, Bernhard Mühlherr, Jean-Pierre Tignol, Hendrik Van Maldeghem3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2013 a1 online resource (3963 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aHeritage of European Mathematics (HEM)1 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aJacques Tits was awarded the Wolf Prize in 1993 and the Abel Prize
(jointly with John Thompson) in 2008. The impact of his contributions
in algebra, group theory and geometry made over a span of more than
five decades is incalculable. Many fundamental developments in several
fields of mathematics have their origin in ideas of Tits. A number of
Tits’ papers mark the starting point of completely new directions of
research. Outstanding examples are papers on quadratic forms, on
Kac–Moody groups and on what subsequently became known as the
Tits-alternative.
These volumes contain an almost complete collection of Tits’
mathematical writings. They include, in particular, a number of
published and unpublished manuscripts which have not been easily
accessible until now. This collection of Tits’ contributions in one
place makes the evolution of his mathematical thinking visible. The
development of his theory of buildings and BN-pairs and its bearing
on the theory of algebraic groups, for example, reveal a fascinating
story. Along with Tits’ mathematical writings, these volumes contain
biographical data, survey articles on aspects of Tits’ work and
comments by the editors on the content of some of his papers.
With the publication of these volumes, a major piece of 20th century
mathematics is being made available to a wider audience.07aMathematics2bicssc07aGeneral2msc07aCombinatorics2msc07aNonassociative rings and algebras2msc07aGroup theory and generalizations2msc1 aMühlherr, Bernhard,eauthor.1 aTignol, Jean-Pierre,eauthor.1 aVan Maldeghem, Hendrik,eauthor.40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/126423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/tits_mini.jpg02306nam a22003615a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001700168084002900185100003400214245009500248260008200343300003400425336002600459337002600485338003600511347002400547490005100571506006500622520097700687650004701664650003101711650005501742650004801797856003201845856006701877169-131031CH-001817-320131031234500.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa131031e20131213sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719627470a10.4171/1272doi ach0018173 7aPBMP2bicssc a53-xxa32-xxa58-xx2msc1 aLabourie, François,eauthor.10aLectures on Representations of Surface Groupsh[electronic resource] /cFrançois Labourie3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2013 a1 online resource (145 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aZurich Lectures in Advanced Mathematics (ZLAM)1 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aThe subject of these notes is the character variety of representations of a surface group in a Lie group.

Following those in Paris (1992), Budapest (1996), Barcelona (2000), Stockholm (2004) and Amsterdam (2008), the Sixth European Congress of Mathematics (6ECM) took place in Kraków, Poland, July 2–7, 2012, with about 1000 participants from all over the world.
Ten plenary, thirty-three invited lectures and three special lectures formed the core of the program. As at all the previous EMS congresses, ten outstanding young mathematicians received the EMS prizes in recognition of their research achievements. In addition, two more prizes were awarded: the Felix Klein Prize for a remarkable solution of an industrial problem, and – for the first time – the Otto Neugebauer Prize for a highly original and influential piece of work in the history of mathematics. The program was complemented by twenty-four minisymposia with nearly 100 talks, spread over all areas of mathematics. Six panel discussions were organized, covering a variety of issues ranging from the financing of mathematical research to gender imbalance in mathematics.
These proceedings present extended versions of most of the invited talks which were delivered during the congress, providing a permanent record of the best what mathematics offers today.07aMathematics and science2bicssc07aGeneral2msc1 aLatała, Rafał,eeditor.1 aRuciński, Andrzej,eeditor.1 aStrzelecki, Paweł,eeditor.1 aŚwiątkowski, Jacek,eeditor.1 aWrzosek, Dariusz,eeditor.1 aZakrzewski, Piotr,eeditor.40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/120423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/6ECM_mini.gif02479nam a22003735a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001700168084003600185100003100221245008000252260008200332300003400414336002600448337002600474338003600500347002400536490005100560506006500611520116500676650003401841650004001875650002301915650002801938650004301966856003202009856006402041172-140124CH-001817-320140124234500.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa140124e20140118sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719630470a10.4171/1302doi ach0018173 7aPBFD2bicssc a13-xxa05-xxa14-xxa17-xx2msc1 aMarsh, Robert J.,eauthor.10aLecture Notes on Cluster Algebrash[electronic resource] /cRobert J.

Fomin and A. Zelevinsky as a tool for studying the dual canonical basis of a quantized enveloping algebra and totally
positive matrices. The aim of these notes is to give an introduction to cluster algebras which is accessible to graduate students or researchers interested in learning more about the field, while giving a taste of the
wide connections between cluster algebras and other areas of mathematics.
The approach taken emphasizes combinatorial and geometric aspects of cluster algebras. Cluster algebras of finite type are classified by the Dynkin diagrams, so a short introduction to reflection groups is given in
order to describe this and the corresponding generalized associahedra. A discussion of cluster algebra periodicity, which has a close relationship with discrete integrable systems, is included. The book ends with a
description of the cluster algebras of finite mutation type and the cluster structure of the homogeneous coordinate ring of the Grassmannian, both of which have a beautiful description in terms of combinatorial
geometry.07aGroups & group theory2bicssc07aCommutative rings and algebras2msc07aCombinatorics2msc07aAlgebraic geometry2msc07aNonassociative rings and algebras2msc40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/130423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/marsh_mini.jpg02599nam a22003615a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001700168084001500185100003400200245015300234260008200387300003400469336002600503337002600529338003600555347002400591490005100615506006500666520126500731650003501996650004002031700003502071700003102106856003202137856006802169173-140123CH-001817-320140123234500.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa140123e20140118sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719629870a10.4171/1292doi ach0018173 7aPBKJ2bicssc a35-xx2msc1 aGallagher, Isabelle,eauthor.10aFrom Newton to Boltzmann: Hard Spheres and Short-range Potentialsh[electronic resource] /cIsabelle Gallagher, Laure Saint-Raymond, Benjamin Texier3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2014 a1 online resource (148 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aZurich Lectures in Advanced Mathematics (ZLAM)1 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aThe question addressed in this monograph is the relationship between the
time-reversible Newton dynamics for a system of particles interacting via
elastic collisions, and the irreversible Boltzmann dynamics which gives a
statistical description of the collision mechanism. Two types of elastic
collisions are considered: hard spheres, and compactly supported potentials..
Following the steps suggested by Lanford in 1974, we describe the transition
from Newton to Boltzmann by proving a rigorous convergence result in short
time, as the number of particles tends to infinity and their size simultaneously
goes to zero, in the Boltzmann-Grad scaling.
Boltzmann’s kinetic theory rests on the assumption that particle independence
is propagated by the dynamics. This assumption is central to the issue of
appearance of irreversibility. For finite numbers of particles, correlations are
generated by collisions. The convergence proof establishes that for initially
independent configurations, independence is statistically recovered in the
limit.
This book is intended for mathematicians working in the fields of partial
differential equations and mathematical physics, and is accessible to graduate
students with a background in analysis.07aDifferential equations2bicssc07aPartial differential equations2msc1 aSaint-Raymond, Laure,eauthor.1 aTexier, Benjamin,eauthor.40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/129423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/gallagher_mini.gif02523nam a22003735a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001700168084001500185245012900200260008200329300003400411336002600445337002600471338003600497347002400533490004100557505076300598506006501361520046301426650002701889650004001916700003101956700003001987700003502017856003202052856006502084174-140106CH-001817-320140106234500.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa140106e20140103sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719625070a10.4171/1252doi ach0018173 7aPBFL2bicssc a16-xx2msc10aAdvances in Representation Theory of Algebrash[electronic resource] /cDavid J.

This equation models slowly varying wave envelopes in dispersive media and arises in various physical systems such as water waves, plasma physics, solid state physics and nonlinear optics. More specifically, this book treats the defocusing nonlinear Schrödinger (dNLS) equation on the circle with a dynamical systems viewpoint. By developing the normal form theory it is shown that this equation is an integrable partial differential equation in the strongest possible sense. In particular, all solutions of the dNLS equation on the circle are periodic, quasi-periodic or almost-periodic in time and Hamiltonian perturbations of this equation can be studied near solutions far away from the equilibrium.
The book is not only intended for specialists working at the intersection of integrable PDEs and dynamical systems, but also for researchers farther away from these fields as well as for graduate students. It is written in a modular fashion, each of its chapters and appendices can be read independently of each other.07aDifferential equations2bicssc07aPartial differential equations2msc07aOrdinary differential equations2msc07aDynamical systems and ergodic theory2msc1 aKappeler, Thomas,eauthor.40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/131423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/grebert_mini.jpg02957nam a22003375a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001600168084001500184100003600199245008000235260008200315300003400397336002600431337002600457338003600483347002400519490003900543506006500582520183000647650002102477650001802498856003202516856007102548176-140514CH-001817-320140514234500.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa140514e20140510sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719638070a10.4171/1382doi ach0018173 7aPBM2bicssc a51-xx2msc1 aCasas-Alvero, Eduardo,eauthor.10aAnalytic Projective Geometryh[electronic resource] /cEduardo Casas-Alvero3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2014 a1 online resource (636 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aEMS Textbooks in Mathematics (ETB)1 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aProjective geometry is concerned with the properties of figures that are invariant by projecting and taking sections. It is considered one of the most beautiful parts of geometry and plays a central role because its specializations cover the whole of the affine, Euclidean and non-Euclidean geometries. The natural extension of projective geometry is projective algebraic geometry, a rich and active field of research. Regarding its applications, results and techniques of projective geometry are today intensively used in computer vision.
This book contains a comprehensive presentation of projective geometry, over the real and complex number fields, and its applications to affine and Euclidean geometries. It covers central topics such as linear varieties, cross ratio, duality, projective transformations, quadrics and their classifications – projective, affine and metric –, as well as the more advanced and less usual spaces of quadrics, rational normal curves, line complexes and the classifications of collineations, pencils of quadrics and correlations. Two appendices are devoted to the projective foundations of perspective and to the projective models of plane non-Euclidean geometries. The presentation uses modern language, is based on linear algebra and provides complete proofs. Exercises are proposed at the end of each chapter; many of them are beautiful classical results.
The material in this book is suitable for courses on projective geometry for undergraduate students, with a
working knowledge of a standard first course on linear algebra. The text is a valuable guide to graduate students and researchers working in areas using or related to projective geometry, such as algebraic geometry and computer vision, and to anyone wishing to gain an advanced view on geometry as a whole.07aGeometry2bicssc07aGeometry2msc40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/138423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/casas-alvero_mini.jpg03686nam a22004935a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001500168072001600183084002200199100003100221245025900252260008200511300003400593336002600627337002600653338003600679347002400715490006400739506006500803520180900868650002402677650003702701650003102738650001702769700003302786700003202819700002802851700002802879700003102907700003102938700002902969700003302998700003103031700003203062856003203094856006603126177-140429CH-001817-320140429234500.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa140429e20140428sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719637370a10.4171/1372doi ach0018173 7aPB2bicssc 7aPBC2bicssc a01-xxa00-xx2msc1 aDeuflhard, Peter,eauthor.10aMATHEON – Mathematics for Key Technologiesh[electronic resource] /cPeter Deuflhard, Martin Grötschel, Dietmar Hömberg, Ulrich Horst, Jürg Kramer, Volker Mehrmann, Konrad Polthier, Frank Schmidt, Christof Schütte, Martin Skutella, Jürgen Sprekels3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2014 a1 online resource (466 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aEMS Series in Industrial and Applied Mathematics (ESIAM)v11 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aMathematics: intellectual endeavor, production factor, key technology, key to key technologies?
Mathematics is all of these! The last three of its facets have been the focus of the research and development in the Berlin-based DFG Research Center MATHEON in the last twelve years. Through these activities MATHEON has become an international trademark for carrying out creative, application-driven research in mathematics and for cooperating with industrial partners in the solution of complex problems in key technologies.
Modern key technologies have become highly sophisticated, integrating aspects of engineering, computer, business and other sciences. Flexible mathematical models, as well as fast and accurate methods for numerical simulation and optimization open new possibilities to handle the indicated complexities, to react quickly, and to explore new options. Researchers in mathematical fields such as Optimization, Discrete Mathematics, Numerical Analysis, Scientific Computing, Applied Analysis and Stochastic Analysis have to work hand in hand with scientists and engineers to fully exploit this potential and to strengthen the transversal role of mathematics in the solution of the challenging problems in key technologies.
This book presents in seven chapters the highlights of the research work carried out in the MATHEON application areas: Life Sciences, Networks, Production, Electronic and Photonic Devices, Finance, Visualization, and Education. The chapters summarize many of the contributions, put them in the context of current mathematical research activities and outline their impact in various key technologies. To make some of the results more easily accessible to the general public, a large number of “showcases” are presented that illustrate a few success stories.07aMathematics2bicssc07aMathematical foundations2bicssc07aHistory and biography2msc07aGeneral2msc1 aGrötschel, Martin,eauthor.1 aHömberg, Dietmar,eauthor.1 aHorst, Ulrich,eauthor.1 aKramer, Jürg,eauthor.1 aMehrmann, Volker,eauthor.1 aPolthier, Konrad,eauthor.1 aSchmidt, Frank,eauthor.1 aSchütte, Christof,eauthor.1 aSkutella, Martin,eauthor.1 aSprekels, Jürgen,eauthor.40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/137423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/matheon_mini.jpg04805nam a22003615a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001700168084002200185245009500207260008200302300003400384336002600418337002600444338003600470347002400506490006800530505171900598506006502317520179502382650002904177650004104206650005504247700003704302856003204339856007204371178-140530CH-001817-320140530234500.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa140530e20140530sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719617570a10.4171/1172doi ach0018173 7aPBKD2bicssc a30-xxa32-xx2msc10aHandbook of Teichmüller Theory, Volume IVh[electronic resource] /cAthanase Papadopoulos3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2014 a1 online resource (838 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aIRMA Lectures in Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (IRMA)v1900tIntroduction to Teichmüller theory, old and new, IV /rAthanase Papadopoulos --tLocal and global aspects of Weil–Petersson geometry /rSumio Yamada --tSimple closed geodesics and the study of Teichmüller spaces /rHugo Parlier --tCurve complexes versus Tits buildings: structures and applications /rLizhen Ji --tExtremal length geometry /rHideki Miyachi --tCompactifications of Teichmüller spaces /rKen’ichi Ohshika --tArc geometry and algebra: foliations, moduli spaces, string topology and field theory /rRalph M.

mathematics, with a very wide range of points of view, including Riemann surface theory,
hyperbolic geometry, low-dimensional topology, several complex variables, algebraic
geometry, arithmetic, partial differential equations, dynamical systems, representation
theory, symplectic geometry, geometric group theory, and mathematical physics.
The present book is the fourth volume in a Handbook of Teichmüller Theory project
that started as an attempt to present, in a most comprehensive and systematic way,
the various aspects of this theory with its relations to all the fields mentioned. The
handbook is addressed to researchers as well as graduate students.
The present volume is divided into five parts:
Part A: The metric and the analytic theory.
Part B: Representation theory and generalized structures.
Part C: Dynamics.
Part D: The quantum theory.
Part E: Sources.
Parts A, B and D are sequels of parts on the same theme in previous volumes. Part E has
a new character in the series; it contains the translation together with a commentary of
an important paper by Teichmüller which is almost unknown even to specialists. Making
clear the original ideas of and motivations for a theory is crucial for many reasons, and
rendering available this translation together with the commentary that follows will give
a new impulse and will contribute in putting the theory into a broader perspective.

way the most important aspects of the theory of continuous stochastic
processes in continuous time and to introduce to some of its ramifications like
the theory of semigroups, the Malliavin calculus and the Lyons’ rough paths. It is
intended for students, or even researchers, who wish to learn the basics in a concise
but complete and rigorous manner. Several exercises are distributed throughout
the text to test the understanding of the reader and each chapter ends up
with bibliographic comments aimed to those interested in exploring
further the materials.
The stochastic calculus has been developed in the 1950s and the range of
its applications is huge and still growing today. Besides being a fundamental
component of modern probability theory, domains of applications include but are
not limited to: mathematical finance, biology, physics, and engineering sciences.
The first part of the text is devoted the general theory of stochastic processes,
we focus on existence and regularity results for processes and on the theory of
martingales. This allows to quickly introduce the Brownian motion and to study
its most fundamental properties. The second part deals with the study of Markov
processes, in particular diffusions. Our goal is to stress the connections between
these processes and the theory of evolution semigroups. The third part deals
with stochastic integrals, stochastic differential equations and Malliavin calculus.
Finally, in the fourth and final part we present an introduction to the very new
theory of rough paths by Terry Lyons.07aProbability & statistics2bicssc07aProbability theory and stochastic processes2msc40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/133423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/baudoin_mini.jpg06153nam a22004095a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001700168084003600185245012000221260008200341300003400423336002600457337002600483338003600509347002400545490004100569505267500610506006503285520200503350650002705355650003805382650005505420650004005475650002805515700003205543700003705575700003205612856003205644856006705676182-140804CH-001817-320140804234500.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa140804e20140901sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719649670a10.4171/1492doi ach0018173 7aPBFL2bicssc a12-xxa06-xxa13-xxa14-xx2msc10aValuation Theory in Interactionh[electronic resource] /cAntonio Campillo, Franz-Viktor Kuhlmann, Bernard Teissier3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2014 a1 online resource (670 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aEMS Series of Congress Reports (ECR)00tA study of irreducible polynomials over henselian valued fields via distinguished pairs /rKamal Aghigh, Anuj Bishnoi, Sudesh K.

Moreover, having been dormant for a while in algebraic geometry, it has now been reintroduced as a tool to attack the open problem of resolution of singularities in positive characteristic and to analyse the structure of singularities. Driven by this topic, and by its many new applications in other areas, also the research in valuation theory itself has been intensified, with a particular emphasis on the deep open problems in positive characteristic.
As important examples for the expansion of valuation theory, it has become extremely useful in the theory of complex dynamical systems, and in the study of non-oscillating trajectories of real analytic vector fields in three dimensions. Analogues of the Riemann-Zariski valuation spaces have been found to be the proper framework for questions of intersection theory in algebraic geometry and in the analysis of singularities of complex plurisubharmonic functions. In a different direction, the relation between Berkovich geometry, tropical geometry and valuation spaces, on the one hand, and the geometry of arc spaces and valuation spaces, on the other, have begun to deepen and clarify.
Ever since its beginnings, valuation theory and Galois theory have grown closely together and influenced each other. Arguably, studying and understanding the extensions of valuations in algebraic field extensions is one of the most important questions in valuation theory, whereas using valuation theory is one of he most important tools in studying Galois extensions of fields, as well as constructing field extensions with given properties.
The well established topic of the model theory of valued fields is also being transformed, in particular through the study of valued fields with functions and operators, a...07aFields & rings2bicssc07aField theory and polynomials2msc07aOrder, lattices, ordered algebraic structures2msc07aCommutative rings and algebras2msc07aAlgebraic geometry2msc1 aCampillo, Antonio,eeditor.1 aKuhlmann, Franz-Viktor,eeditor.1 aTeissier, Bernard,eeditor.40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/149423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/campillo_mini.gif02664nam a22003495a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001600168084002200184100002900206245008500235260008200320300003400402336002600436337002600462338003600488347002400524490004800548506006500596520143100661650004502092650004802137650003102185856003202216856006602248183-140812CH-001817-320140812234500.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa140812e20140812sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719641070a10.4171/1412doi ach0018173 7aPBK2bicssc a58-xxa53-xx2msc1 aSergeev, Armen,eauthor.10aLectures on Universal Teichmüller Spaceh[electronic resource] /cArmen Sergeev3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2014 a1 online resource (111 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aEMS Series of Lectures in Mathematics (ELM)1 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aThis book is based on a lecture course given by the author at the Educational Center of Steklov Mathematical Institute in 2011. It is designed for a one semester course for undergraduate students, familiar with basic differential geometry, complex and functional analysis.
The universal Teichmüller space $\mathcal T$ is the quotient of the space of quasisymmetric homeomorphisms of the unit circle modulo Möbius transformations. The first part of the book is devoted to the study of geometric and analytic properties of $\mathcal T$. It is an infinite-dimensional Kähler manifold which contains all classical Teichmüller spaces of compact Riemann surfaces as complex submanifolds which explains
the name “universal Teichmüller space”. Apart from classical Teichmüller spaces, $\mathcal T$ contains the space $\mathcal S$ of diffeomorphisms of the circle modulo Möbius transformations. The latter space plays an important role in the quantization of the theory of smooth strings. The quantization of $\mathcal T$ is presented in the second part of the book. In contrast with the case of diffeomorphism space $\mathcal S$, which can be quantized in frames of the conventional Dirac scheme, the quantization of $\mathcal T$ requires an absolutely different approach based on the noncommutative geometry methods.
The book concludes with a list of 24 problems and exercises which can be used during the examinations.07aCalculus & mathematical analysis2bicssc07aGlobal analysis, analysis on manifolds2msc07aDifferential geometry2msc40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/141423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/sergeev_mini.gif03361nam a22003975a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001700168084003600185245009600221260008200317300003400399336002600433337002600459338003600485347002400521490006800545505120000613506006501813520074001878650004702618650003102665650001802696650003802714650004802752700003702800700002902837856003202866856006502898184-141117CH-001817-320141117234500.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa141117e20141201sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719647270a10.4171/1472doi ach0018173 7aPBMP2bicssc a53-xxa51-xxa52-xxa58-xx2msc10aHandbook of Hilbert Geometryh[electronic resource] /cAthanase Papadopoulos, Marc Troyanov3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2014 a1 online resource (460 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aIRMA Lectures in Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (IRMA)v2200tWeak Minkowski spaces /rAthanase Papadopoulos, Marc Troyanov --tFrom Funk to Hilbert geometry /rAthanase Papadopoulos, Marc Troyanov --tFunk and Hilbert geometries from the Finslerian viewpoint /rMarc Troyanov --tOn the Hilbert geometry of convex polytopes /rConstantin Vernicos --tThe horofunction boundary and isometry group of the Hilbert geometry /rCormac Walsh --tCharacterizations of hyperbolic geometry among Hilbert geometries /rRen Guo --tAround groups in Hilbert geometry /rLudovic Marquis --tThe geodesic flow of Finsler and Hilbert geometries /rMickaël Crampon --tDynamics of Hilbert nonexpansive maps /rAnders Karlsson --tBirkhoff’s version of Hilbert’s metric and its applications in analysis /rBas Lemmens, Roger Nussbaum --tConvex real projective structures and Hilbert metrics /rInkang Kim, Athanase Papadopoulos --tWeil–Petersson Funk metric on Teichmüller space /rHideki Miyachi, Ken’ichi Ohshika, Sumio Yamada --tFunk and Hilbert geometries in spaces of constant curvature /rAthanase Papadopoulos, Sumio Yamada --tOn the origin of Hilbert geometry /rMarc Troyanov --tHilbert’s fourth problem /rAthanase Papadopoulos --tOpen problems.1 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aThis volume presents surveys, written by experts in the field, on various classical and the modern aspects of Hilbert geometry.

A new approach is presented to exhibit relations between Sobolev spaces, Besov spaces, and Hölder–Zygmund spaces on the one hand and Morrey–Campanato spaces on the other. Morrey–Campanato spaces extend the notion of functions of bounded mean oscillation. These spaces play a crucial role in the theory of linear and nonlinear PDEs.
Chapter 1 (Introduction) describes the main motivations and intentions of this book. Chapter 2 is a selfcontained introduction into Morrey spaces.
Chapter 3 deals with hybrid smoothness spaces (which are between local and global spaces) in Euclidean n-space based on the Morrey–Campanato
refinement of the Lebesgue spaces. The presented approach relies on wavelet decompositions. This is applied in Chapter 4 to linear and nonlinear
heat equations in global and hybrid spaces. The obtained assertions about function spaces and nonlinear heat equations are used in the Chapters 5 and
6 to study Navier–Stokes equations in hybrid and global spaces.
This book is addressed to graduate students and mathematicians having a working knowledge of basic elements of (global) function spaces, and who
are interested in applications to nonlinear PDEs with heat and Navier–Stokes equations as prototypes.07aDifferential equations2bicssc07aFunctional analysis2msc07aPartial differential equations2msc07aFourier analysis2msc07aIntegral equations2msc40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/150423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/triebel24_mini.jpg02828nam a22003735a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001600168084003600184100003100220245008500251260008200336300003400418336002600452337002600478338003600504347002400540490003900564506006500603520146500668650004502133650004802178650004002226650002502266650006602291856003202357856006502389186-150225CH-001817-320150225234500.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa150225e20150218sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719651970a10.4171/1512doi ach0018173 7aPBK2bicssc a58-xxa35-xxa47-xxa49-xx2msc1 aLablée, Olivier,eauthor.10aSpectral Theory in Riemannian Geometryh[electronic resource] /cOlivier Lablée3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2015 a1 online resource (197 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aEMS Textbooks in Mathematics (ETB)1 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aSpectral theory is a diverse area of mathematics that derives its motivations, goals and impetus from several sources. In particular, the spectral theory of the Laplacian on a compact Riemannian manifold is a central object in differential geometry. From a physical point a view, the Laplacian on a compact Riemannian manifold is a fundamental linear operator which describes numerous propagation phenomena: heat propagation, wave propagation, quantum dynamics, etc. Moreover, the spectrum of the Laplacian contains vast information about the geometry of the manifold.
This book gives a self-containded introduction to spectral geometry on compact Riemannian manifolds. Starting with an overview of spectral theory on Hilbert spaces, the book proceeds to a description of the basic notions in Riemannian geometry. Then its makes its way to topics of main interests in spectral geometry. The topics presented include direct and inverse problems. Direct problems are concerned with computing or finding properties on the eigenvalues while the main issue in inverse problems is “knowing the spectrum of the Laplacian, can we determine the geometry of the manifold?”
Addressed to students or young researchers, the present book is a first introduction in spectral theory applied to geometry. For readers interested in pursuing the subject further, this book will provide a basis for understanding principles, concepts and developments of spectral geometry.07aCalculus & mathematical analysis2bicssc07aGlobal analysis, analysis on manifolds2msc07aPartial differential equations2msc07aOperator theory2msc07aCalculus of variations and optimal control; optimization2msc40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/151423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/lablee_mini.jpg03002nam a22003615a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001700168084002900185100003000214245009000244260008200334300003400416336002600450337002600476338003600502347002400538490005100562506006500613520168500678650003202363650005202395650005502447650004002502856003202542856006602574187-150313CH-001817-320150313234500.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa150313e20150320sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719652670a10.4171/1522doi ach0018173 7aPHGK2bicssc a82-xxa15-xxa35-xx2msc1 aSerfaty, Sylvia,eauthor.10aCoulomb Gases and Ginzburg–Landau Vorticesh[electronic resource] /cSylvia Serfaty3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2015 a1 online resource (165 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aZurich Lectures in Advanced Mathematics (ZLAM)1 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aThe topic of this book is systems of points in Coulomb interaction, in particular, the classical Coulomb gas, and vortices in the Ginzburg–Landau model of superconductivity. The classical Coulomb and Log gases are classical statistical mechanics models, which have seen important developments in the mathematical literature due to their connection with random matrices and approximation theory. At low temperature, these systems are expected to “cristallize” to so-called Fekete sets, which exhibit microscopically a lattice structure.
The Ginzburg–Landau model, on the other hand, describes superconductors. In superconducting materials subjected to an external magnetic field, densely packed point vortices emerge, forming perfect triangular lattice patterns, so-called Abrikosov lattices.
This book describes these two systems and explores the similarity between them. It presents the mathematical tools developed to analyze the interaction between the Coulomb particles or the vortices, at the microscopic scale, and describes a “renormalized energy” governing the point patterns. This is believed to measure the disorder of a point configuration, and to be minimized by the Abrikosov lattice in dimension 2.
The book gives a self-contained presentation of results on the mean field limit of the Coulomb gas system, with or without temperature, and of the derivation of the renormalized energy. It also provides a streamlined presentation of the similar analysis that can be performed for the Ginzburg–Landau model, including a review of the vortex-specific tools and the derivation of the critical fields, the mean-field limit and the renormalized energy.07aStatistical physics2bicssc07aStatistical mechanics, structure of matter2msc07aLinear and multilinear algebra; matrix theory2msc07aPartial differential equations2msc40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/152423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/serfaty_mini.jpg03302nam a22003615a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001600168084002200184100003000206245012700236260008200363300003400445336002600479337002600505338003600531347002400567490004300591506006500634520201900699650003502718650003102753650002302784700003302807856003202840856006802872188-150319CH-001817-320150319234500.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa150319e20150331sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719646570a10.4171/1462doi ach0018173 7aPBX2bicssc a01-xxa11-xx2msc1 aDumbaugh, Della,eauthor.10aEmil Artin and Beyond – Class Field Theory and $L$-Functionsh[electronic resource] /cDella Dumbaugh, Joachim Schwermer3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2015 a1 online resource (245 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aHeritage of European Mathematics (HEM)1 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aThis book explores the development of number theory, and class field theory in particular, as it passed through the hands of Emil Artin, Claude Chevalley and Robert Langlands in the middle of the twentieth century. Claude Chevalley’s presence in Artin’s 1931 Hamburg lectures on class field theory serves as the starting point for this volume. From there, it is traced how class field theory advanced in the 1930s and how Artin’s contributions influenced other mathematicians at the time and in subsequent years. Given the difficult political climate and his forced emigration as it were, the question of how Artin created a life in America within the existing institutional framework, and especially of how he continued his education of and close connection with graduate students, is considered. In particular, Artin’s collaboration in algebraic number theory with George Whaples and his student Margaret Matchett’s thesis work “On the zeta-function for ideles” in the 1940s are investigated. A (first) study of the influence of Artin on present day work on a non-abelian class field theory finishes the book.
The volume consists of individual essays by the authors and two contributors, James Cogdell and Robert Langlands, and contains relevant archival material. Among these, the letter from Chevalley to Helmut Hasse in 1935 is included, where he introduces the notion of ideles and explores their significance, along with the previously unpublished thesis by Matchett and the seminal letter of Langlands to André Weil of 1967 where he lays out his ideas regarding a non-abelian class field theory. Taken together, these chapters offer a view of both the life of Artin in the 1930s and 1940s and the development of class field theory at that time. They also provide insight into the transmission of mathematical ideas, the careful steps required to preserve a life in mathematics at a difficult moment in history, and the interplay between mathematics and politics (in more ways than one)....07aHistory of mathematics2bicssc07aHistory and biography2msc07aNumber theory2msc1 aSchwermer, Joachim,eauthor.40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/146423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/schwermer_mini.jpg03386nam a22003855a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001600168072001600184084002200200100003700222245014000259260008200399300003400481336002600515337002600541338003600567347002400603490004300627506006500670520202300735650003502758650002602793650003102819650002302850700002702873856003202900856006802932189-150427CH-001817-320150427234500.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa150427e20150410sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719644170a10.4171/1442doi ach0018173 7aPBX2bicssc 7aPBR2bicssc a01-xxa11-xx2msc1 aBečvářová, Martina,eauthor.10aKarl Löwner and His Student Lipman Bers – Pre-war Prague Mathematiciansh[electronic resource] /cMartina Bečvářová, Ivan Netuka3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2015 a1 online resource (310 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aHeritage of European Mathematics (HEM)1 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aThis monograph is devoted to two distinguished mathematicians, Karel Löwner (1893–1968) and Lipman Bers (1914–1993), whose lives are dramatically interlinked with key historical events of the 20th century. K. Löwner, Professor of Mathematics at the German University in Prague (Czechoslovakia), was dismissed from his position because he was a Jew, and emigrated to the USA in 1939 (where he changed his name to Charles Loewner). Earlier, he had published several outstanding papers in complex analysis and a masterpiece on matrix functions. In particular, his ground-breaking parametric method in geometric function theory from 1923, which led to Löwner’s celebrated differential equation, brought him world-wide fame and turned out to be a cornerstone in de Branges’ proof of the Bieberbach conjecture. Unexpectedly, Löwner’s differential equation has gained recent prominence with the introduction of a conformally invariant stochastic process called stochastic Loewner evolution (SLE) by O. Schramm in 2000. SLE features in two Fields Medal citations from 2006 and 2010. L. Bers was the final Prague Ph.D. student of K. Löwner. His dissertation on potential theory (1938), completed shortly before his emigration and long thought to be irretrievably lost, was found in 2006. It is here made accessible for the first time, with an extensive commentary, to the mathematical community.
This monograph presents an in-depth account of the lives of both mathematicians, with special emphasis on the pre-war period. Löwner’s teaching activities and professional achievements are presented in the context of the prevailing complex political situation and against the background of the wider development of mathematics in Europe. Each of his publications is accompanied by an extensive commentary, tracing the origin and motivation of the problem studied, and describing the state-of-art at the time of the corresponding mathematical field.

In 1999, Chas and Sullivan introduced a wealth of new algebraic operations on the homology of these spaces under the name of string topology, the full scope of which is still not completely understood. A few years earlier, Viterbo had discovered a first deep link between the symplectic topology of cotangent bundles and the topology of their free loop space. In the past 15 years, many exciting connections between these two viewpoints have been found. Still, researchers working on one side of the story often know quite little about the other.
One of the main purposes of this book is to facilitate communication between topologists and symplectic geometers thinking about free loop spaces. It was written by active researchers coming to the topic from both perspectives and provides a concise overview of many of the classical results, while also beginning to explore the new directions of research that have emerged recently. As one highlight, it contains a research monograph by M. Abouzaid which proves a strengthened version of Viterbo’s isomorphism between the homology of the free loop space of a manifold and the symplectic cohomology of its cotangent bundle, following a new strategy.
The book grew out of a learning seminar on free loop spaces held at Strasbourg University in 2008–2009, and should be accessible to a graduate student with a general interest in the topic. It focuses on introducing and explaining the most important aspects rather than offering encyclopedic coverage, while providing the interested reader with a broad basis for further studies and research.07aDifferential & Riemannian geometry2bicssc07aAlgebraic topology2bicssc07aDifferential geometry2msc07aCommutative rings and algebras2msc07aAssociative rings and algebras2msc07aAlgebraic topology2msc1 aOancea, Alexandru,eauthor.40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/153423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/latschev_mini.jpg03392nam a22004215a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001600168072001600184084003600200245015400236260008200390300003400472336002600506337002600532338003600558347002400594490006800618505093700686506006501623520093801688650003502626650002102661650003102682650004002713650001802753650003102771700002502802700003702827856003202864856007402896191-150427CH-001817-320150427234500.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa150427e20150430sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719648970a10.4171/1482doi ach0018173 7aPBX2bicssc 7aPBM2bicssc a01-xxa22-xxa51-xxa53-xx2msc10aSophus Lie and Felix Klein: The Erlangen Program and Its Impact in Mathematics and Physicsh[electronic resource] /cLizhen Ji, Athanase Papadopoulos3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2015 a1 online resource (348 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aIRMA Lectures in Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (IRMA)v2300tSophus Lie, a giant in mathematics /rLizhen Ji --tFelix Klein: his life and mathematics /rLizhen Ji --tKlein and the Erlangen Programme /rJeremy J.

The present volume is the first modern comprehensive book on that program and its impact in contemporary mathematics and physics. Klein spelled out the program, and Lie, who contributed to its formulation, is the first mathematician who made it effective in his work. The theories that these two authors developed are also linked to their personal history and to their relations with each other and with other mathematicians, incuding Hermann Weyl, Élie Cartan, Henri Poincaré, and many others. All these facets of the Erlangen program appear in the present volume.
The book is written by well-known experts in geometry, physics and history of mathematics and physics. It is addressed to mathematicians, to graduate students, and to all those interested in the development of mathematical ideas.07aHistory of mathematics2bicssc07aGeometry2bicssc07aHistory and biography2msc07aTopological groups, Lie groups2msc07aGeometry2msc07aDifferential geometry2msc1 aJi, Lizhen,eeditor.1 aPapadopoulos, Athanase,eeditor.40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/148423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/ji_papadopoulos_mini.jpg03077nam a22004215a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001700168084003600185100003200221245013500253260008200388300003400470336002600504337002600530338003600556347002400592490004000616506006500656520155000721650003402271650004202305650002302347650004602370650002602416700003102442700002802473700002802501700002702529856003202556856006702588192-150601CH-001817-320150601234500.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa150601e20150601sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719639770a10.4171/1392doi ach0018173 7aPBFD2bicssc a20-xxa05-xxa18-xxa68-xx2msc1 aDehornoy, Patrick,eauthor.10aFoundations of Garside Theoryh[electronic resource] /cPatrick Dehornoy, François Digne, Eddy Godelle, Daan Krammer, Jean Michel3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2015 a1 online resource (710 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aEMS Tracts in Mathematics (ETM)v221 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aWinner of the 2014 EMS Monograph Award!
This text is a monograph in algebra, with connections toward geometry and low-dimensional topology. It mainly involves groups, monoids, and categories, and aims at providing a unified treatment for those situations in which one can find distinguished decompositions by iteratively extracting a maximal fragment lying in a prescribed family. Initiated in 1969 by F. A. Garside in the case of Artin’s braid groups, this approach turned out to lead to interesting results in a number of cases, the central notion being what the authors call a Garside family. At the moment, the study is far from complete, and the purpose of this book is both to present the current state of the theory and to be an invitation for further research.
There are two parts: the bases of a general theory, including many easy examples, are developed in Part A, whereas various more sophisticated examples are specifically addressed in Part B.
In order to make the content accessible to a wide audience of nonspecialists, exposition is essentially self-contained and very few prerequisites are needed. In particular, it should be easy to use the current text as a textbook both for Garside theory and for the more specialized topics investigated in Part B: Artin–Tits groups, Deligne-Lusztig varieties, groups of algebraic laws, ordered groups, structure groups of set-theoretic solutions of the Yang–Baxter equation. The first part of the book can be used as the basis for a graduate or advanced undergraduate course.07aGroups & group theory2bicssc07aGroup theory and generalizations2msc07aCombinatorics2msc07aCategory theory; homological algebra2msc07aComputer science2msc1 aDigne, François,eauthor.1 aGodelle, Eddy,eauthor.1 aKrammer, Daan,eauthor.1 aMichel, Jean,eauthor.40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/139423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/dehornoy_mini.jpg04083nam a22004695a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001600168072001700184072001700201072001700218084003600235245015400271260008200425300003400507336002600541337002600567338003600593347002400629490006800653505061000721506006501331520176401396650004103160650002703201650002703228650002703255650002303282650005503305650004003360650003903400700003703439700003303476856003203509856007203541193-150617CH-001817-320150617234500.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa150617e20150630sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719643470a10.4171/1432doi ach0018173 7aPBV2bicssc 7aPBFH2bicssc 7aPBFL2bicssc 7aPBFP2bicssc a05-xxa06-xxa16-xxa41-xx2msc10aFaà di Bruno Hopf Algebras, Dyson–Schwinger Equations, and Lie–Butcher Seriesh[electronic resource] /cKurusch Ebrahimi-Fard, Frédéric Fauvet3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2015 a1 online resource (466 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aIRMA Lectures in Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (IRMA)v2100tForeword /rJosé M.

In a seminal 1998 paper, A. Connes and D. Kreimer presented a Hopf algebraic approach to renormalization in perturbative Quantum Field Theory (QFT). This work triggered an abundance of new research on applications of Hopf algebraic techniques in QFT as well as other areas of theoretical physics. Furthermore, these new developments were complemented by progress made in other domains of applications, such as control theory, dynamical systems, and numerical integration methods. Especially in the latter context, it became clear that J. Butcher’s work from the early 1970s was well ahead of its time.
The present volume emanated from a conference hosted in June 2011 by IRMA at Strasbourg University in France. Researchers from different scientific communities who share similar techniques and objectives gathered at this meeting to discuss new ideas and results on Faà di Bruno algebras, Dyson–Schwinger equations, and Butcher series.
The purpose of this book is to present a coherent set of lectures reflecting the state of the art of research on combinatorial Hopf algebras relevant to high energy physics, control theory, dynamical systems, and numerical integration methods. More specifically, connections between Dyson–Schwinger equations, Faà di Bruno algebras, and Butcher series are examined in great detail.
This volume is aimed at researchers and graduate students interested in combinatorial and algebraic aspects of QFT, control theory, dynamical systems and numerical analysis of integration methods. It contains introductory lectures on the various constructions that are emerging and developing in these domains.07aCombinatorics & graph theory2bicssc07aLattice theory2bicssc07aFields & rings2bicssc07aLinear algebra2bicssc07aCombinatorics2msc07aOrder, lattices, ordered algebraic structures2msc07aAssociative rings and algebras2msc07aApproximations and expansions2msc1 aEbrahimi-Fard, Kurusch,eeditor.1 aFauvet, Frédéric,eeditor.40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/143423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/ebrahimi-fard_mini.jpg03288nam a22004455a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001700168072001700185084003600202100003900238245018300277260008200460300003400542336002600576337002600602338003600628347002400664490004000688506006500728520158300793650004702376650003502423650003102458650004302489650004102532650004002573700003002613700003502643700003102678700003102709856003202740856007002772194-150629CH-001817-320150629234504.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa150629e20150629sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719636670a10.4171/1362doi ach0018173 7aPBMP2bicssc 7aPBKJ2bicssc a53-xxa17-xxa34-xxa35-xx2msc1 aBourguignon, Jean-Pierre,eauthor.10aA Spinorial Approach to Riemannian and Conformal Geometryh[electronic resource] /cJean-Pierre Bourguignon, Oussama Hijazi, Jean-Louis Milhorat, Andrei Moroianu, Sergiu Moroianu3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2015 a1 online resource (462 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aEMS Monographs in Mathematics (EMM)1 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aThe book gives an elementary and comprehensive introduction to Spin Geometry, with particular emphasis on the Dirac operator which plays a fundamental role in differential geometry and mathematical physics.
After a self-contained presentation of the basic algebraic, geometrical, analytical and topological ingredients, a systematic study of the spectral properties of the Dirac operator on compact spin manifolds is carried out. The classical estimates on eigenvalues and their limiting cases are discussed next, highlighting the subtle interplay of spinors and special geometric structures. Several applications of these ideas are presented, including spinorial proofs of the Positive Mass Theorem or the classification of positive Kähler–Einstein contact manifolds. Representation theory is used to explicitly compute the Dirac spectrum of compact symmetric spaces.
The special features of the book include a unified treatment of Spin$^\mathrm c$ and conformal spin geometry (with special emphasis on the conformal covariance of the Dirac operator), an overview with proofs of the theory of elliptic differential operators on compact manifolds based on pseudodifferential calculus, a spinorial characterization of special geometries, and a self-contained presentation of the representation-theoretical tools needed in order to apprehend spinors.
This book will help advanced graduate students and researchers to get more familiar with this beautiful, though not sufficiently known, domain of mathematics with great relevance to both theoretical physics and geometry.07aDifferential & Riemannian geometry2bicssc07aDifferential equations2bicssc07aDifferential geometry2msc07aNonassociative rings and algebras2msc07aOrdinary differential equations2msc07aPartial differential equations2msc1 aHijazi, Oussama,eauthor.1 aMilhorat, Jean-Louis,eauthor.1 aMoroianu, Andrei,eauthor.1 aMoroianu, Sergiu,eauthor.40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/136423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/bourguignon_mini.jpg02518nam a22003495a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154084002200168100003800190245010000228260008200328300003400410336002600444337002600470338003600496347002400532490004800556506006500604520125800669650003801927650004201965700002902007700002802036856003202064856007202096195-150902CH-001817-320150902234501.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa150902e20150820sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719654070a10.4171/1542doi ach0018173 a57-xxa20-xx2msc1 aAschenbrenner, Matthias,eauthor.10a3-Manifold Groupsh[electronic resource] /cMatthias Aschenbrenner, Stefan Friedl, Henry Wilton3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2015 a1 online resource (230 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aEMS Series of Lectures in Mathematics (ELM)1 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aThe field of 3-manifold topology has made great strides forward since 1982, when Thurston articulated his influential list of questions. Primary among these is Perelman's proof of the Geometrization Conjecture, but other highlights include the Tameness Theorem of Agol and Calegari–Gabai, the Surface Subgroup Theorem of Kahn–Markovic, the work of Wise and others on special cube complexes, and finally Agol's proof of the Virtual Haken Conjecture. This book summarizes all these developments and provides an exhaustive account of the current state of the art of 3-manifold topology, especially focussing on the consequences for fundamental groups of 3-manifolds.
As the first book on 3-manifold topology that incorporates the exciting progress of the last two decades, it will be an invaluable resource for researchers in the field who need a reference for these developments. It also gives a fast-paced introduction to this material – although some familiarity with the fundamental group is recommended, little other previous knowledge is assumed, and the book is accessible to graduate students.
The book closes with an extensive list of open questions, which will also be of interest to graduate students and established researchers alike.07aManifolds and cell complexes2msc07aGroup theory and generalizations2msc1 aFriedl, Stefan,eauthor.1 aWilton, Henry,eauthor.40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/154423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/aschenbrenner_mini.jpg01920nam a22003495a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001700168084002200185100002800207245008000235260008200315300003400397336002600431337002600457338003600483347002400519490004800543506006500591520072000656650003201376650002901408650002601437856003201463856007501495196-151029CH-001817-320151029121023.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa151029e20150930sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719655770a10.4171/1552doi ach0018173 7aPBKG2bicssc a46-xxa42-xx2msc1 aTriebel, Hans,eauthor.10aTempered Homogeneous Function Spacesh[electronic resource] /cHans Triebel3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2015 a1 online resource (143 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aEMS Series of Lectures in Mathematics (ELM)1 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aIf one tries to transfer assertions for the inhomogeneous spaces $A^s_{p,q} (\mathbb R^n)$, $A \in \{B,F \}$, appropriately to their homogeneous counterparts ${\overset {\, \ast}{A}}{}^s_{p,q} (\mathbb R^n)$ within the framework of the dual pairing $\big( S(\mathbb R^n), S'(\mathbb R^n) \big)$ then it is hard to make a mistake as long as the parameters $p,q,s$ are restricted by $0 < p,q \le \infty$ and, in particular, $n(\frac {1}{p} – 1) < s < \frac {n}{p}$.

It consists of four essentially self-contained chapters and presents recent research results highlighting the strong interplay between number theory and other fields of mathematics, such as combinatorics, functional analysis and graph theory. The book is addressed to (under)graduate students who wish to discover various aspects of number theory. Remarkably, it demonstrates how easily one can approach frontiers of current research in number theory by elementary and basic analytic methods.
Kathrin Bringmann gives an introduction to the theory of modular forms and, in particular, so-called Mock theta-functions, a topic which had been untouched for decades but has obtained much attention in the last years. Yann Bugeaud is concerned with expansions of algebraic numbers. Here combinatorics on words and transcendence theory are combined to derive new information on the sequence of decimals of algebraic numbers and on their continued fraction expansions. Titus Hilberdink reports on a recent and rather unexpected approach to extreme values of the Riemann zeta-function by use of (multiplicative) Toeplitz matrices and functional analysis. Finally, Jürgen Sander gives an introduction to algebraic graph theory and the impact of number theoretical methods on fundamental questions about the spectra of graphs and the analogue of the Riemann hypothesis.07aMathematics2bicssc07aNumber theory2bicssc07aNumber theory2msc07aComputer science2msc1 aBugeaud, Yann,eauthor.1 aHilberdink, Titus,eauthor.1 aSander, Jürgen,eauthor.40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/142423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/bringmann_mini.jpg02837nam a22003495a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001600168084002200184100004300206245017900249260008200428300003400510336002600544337002600570338003600596347002400632490004300656506006500699520154200764650003502306650003102341650001702372856003202389856006602421198-151214CH-001817-320151214234500.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa151214e20160131sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719645870a10.4171/1452doi ach0018173 7aPBX2bicssc a01-xxa00-xx2msc1 ade Saint-Gervais, Henri Paul,eauthor.10aUniformization of Riemann Surfacesh[electronic resource] :bRevisiting a hundred-year-old theoremTranslated from the French by Robert G.

It took a whole century to get to the point of stating this theorem and providing a convincing proof of it, relying as it did on prior work of Gauss, Riemann, Schwarz, Klein, Poincaré, and Koebe, among others. The present
book offers an overview of the maturation process of this theorem.
The evolution of the uniformization theorem took place in parallel with the emergence of modern algebraic geometry, the creation of complex analysis, the first stirrings of functional analysis, and with the flowering of the theory of differential equations and the birth of topology. The uniformization theorem was thus one of the lightning rods of 19th century mathematics. Rather than describe the history of a single theorem, our aim is to return to the original proofs, to look at these through the eyes of modern mathematicians, to enquire as to their correctness, and to attempt to make them rigorous while respecting insofar as possible the state of mathematical knowledge at the time, or, if this should prove impossible, then using modern mathematical tools not available to their authors.
This book will be useful to today's mathematicians wishing to cast a glance back at the history of their discipline. It should also provide graduate students with a non-standard approach to concepts of great importance for modern research.07aHistory of mathematics2bicssc07aHistory and biography2msc07aGeneral2msc40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/145423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/gervais_mini.jpg02562nam a22003975a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001700168072001600185084003600201100003000237245014700267260008200414300003400496336002600530337002600556338003600582347002400618490006800642506006500710520105000775650004701825650003701872650003101909650003301940650004101973650005302014856003202067856006502099199-151214CH-001817-320151214234500.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa151214e20160105sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719658870a10.4171/1582doi ach0018173 7aPBMP2bicssc 7aPBT2bicssc a53-xxa28-xxa30-xxa60-xx2msc1 aShioya, Takashi,eauthor.10aMetric Measure Geometryh[electronic resource] :bGromov’s Theory of Convergence and Concentration of Metrics and Measures /cTakashi Shioya3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2016 a1 online resource (194 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aIRMA Lectures in Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (IRMA)v251 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aThis book studies a new theory of metric geometry on metric measure spaces, originally developed by M. Gromov in his book “Metric Structures for Riemannian and Non-Riemannian Spaces” and based on the idea of the concentration of measure phenomenon due to Lévy and Milman. A central theme in this text is the study of the observable distance between metric measure spaces, defined by the difference between 1-Lipschitz functions on one space and those on the other. The topology on the set of metric measure spaces induced by the observable distance function is weaker than the measured Gromov–Hausdorff topology and allows to investigate a sequence of Riemannian manifolds with unbounded dimensions. One of the main parts of this presentation is the discussion of a natural compactification of the completion of the space of metric measure spaces. The stability of the curvature-dimension condition is also discussed.
This book makes advanced material accessible to researchers and graduate students interested in metric measure spaces.07aDifferential & Riemannian geometry2bicssc07aProbability & statistics2bicssc07aDifferential geometry2msc07aMeasure and integration2msc07aFunctions of a complex variable2msc07aProbability theory and stochastic processes2msc40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/158423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/shioya_mini.jpg03774nam a22003495a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001700168084001500185245009400200260008200294300003400376336002600410337002600436338003600462347002400498490006800522505133700590506006501927520121701992650003203209650004103241700003703282856003203319856007303351200-151214CH-001817-320151214234500.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa151214e20160111sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719660170a10.4171/1602doi ach0018173 7aPBKG2bicssc a30-xx2msc10aHandbook of Teichmüller Theory, Volume Vh[electronic resource] /cAthanase Papadopoulos3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2016 a1 online resource (596 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aIRMA Lectures in Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (IRMA)v2600tIntroduction to Teichmüller theory, old and new, V /rAthanase Papadopoulos --tIdentities on hyperbolic manifolds /rMartin Bridgeman, Ser Peow Tan --tProblems on the Thurston metric /rWeixu Su --tMeyer functions and the signature of fibered 4-manifolds /rYusuke Kuno --tThe Goldman–Turaev Lie bialgebra and the Johnson homomorphisms /rNariya Kawazumi, Yusuke Kuno --tA survey of the Johnson homomorphisms of the automorphism groups of free groups and related topics /rTakao Satoh --tGeometry and dynamics on character varieties /rInkang Kim --tCompactifications and reduction theory of geometrically finite locally symmetric spaces /rLizhen Ji --tRepresentations of fundamental groups of 2-manifolds /rLisa Jeffrey --tExtremal quasiconformal mappings and quadratic differentials /rOswald Teichmüller --tA commentary on Teichmüller’s paper Extremale quasikonforme Abbildungen und quadratische Differentiale /rVincent Alberge, Athanase Papadopoulos, Weixu Su --tDetermination of extremal quasiconformal mappings of closed oriented Riemann surfaces /rOswald Teichmüller --tA commentary on Teichmüller’s paper Bestimmung der extremalen quasikonformen Abbildungen bei geschlossenen orientierten Riemannschen Flächen /rAnnette A’Campo-Neuen, Norbert A’Campo, Vincent Alberge, Athanase Papadopoulos.1 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aThis volume is the fifth in a series dedicated to Teichmüller theory in a broad sense, including the study of various deformation spaces and of mapping class group actions. It is divided into four parts:
Part A: The metric and the analytic theory
Part B: The group theory
Part C: Representation theory and generalized structures
Part D: Sources
The topics that are covered include identities for the hyperbolic geodesic length spectrum, Thurston's metric, the cohomology of moduli space and mapping class groups, the Johnson homomorphisms, Higgs bundles, dynamics on character varieties, and there are many others.
Besides surveying important parts of the theory, several chapters contain conjectures and open problems. The last part contains two fundamental papers by Teichmüller, translated into English and accompanied by mathematical commentaries.
The chapters, like those of the other volumes in this collection, are written by experts who have a broad view on the subject. They have an expository character (which fits with the original purpose of this handbook), but some of them also contain original and new material.

After an introduction to abstract measure theory it proceeds to the construction of the Lebesgue measure
and of Borel measures on locally compact Hausdorff spaces, $L^p$ spaces and their dual spaces and elementary Hilbert space theory. Special features include the formulation of the Riesz Representation Theorem in terms of both inner and outer regularity, the proofs of the Marcinkiewicz Interpolation Theorem and the Calderon–Zygmund inequality as applications of Fubini’s theorem and Lebesgue differentiation, the treatment of the generalized Radon–Nikodym theorem due to Fremlin, and the existence proof for Haar measures. Three appendices deal with Urysohn’s Lemma, product topologies, and the inverse function theorem.
The book assumes familiarity with first year analysis and linear algebra. It is suitable for second year undergraduate students of mathematics or anyone desiring an introduction to the concepts of measure and integration.07aReal analysis2bicssc07aMeasure and integration2msc40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/159423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/salamon_mini.jpg04606nam a22003495a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001700168084001500185245009500200260008200295300003400377336002600411337002600437338003600463347002400499490006800523505220200591506006502793520118202858650003204040650004104072700003704113856003204150856007404182202-160524CH-001817-320160524234501.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa160524e20160531sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719661870a10.4171/1612doi ach0018173 7aPBKG2bicssc a30-xx2msc10aHandbook of Teichmüller Theory, Volume VIh[electronic resource] /cAthanase Papadopoulos3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2016 a1 online resource (652 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aIRMA Lectures in Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (IRMA)v2700tIntroduction to Teichmüller theory, old and new, VI /rAthanase Papadopoulos --tAlexander Grothendieck /rValentin Poénaru --tOn Grothendieck’s construction of Teichmüller space /rNorbert A’Campo, Lizhen Ji, Athanase Papadopoulos --tNull-set compactifications of Teichmüller spaces /rVincent Alberge, Hideki Miyachi, Ken’ichi Ohshika --tMirzakhani’s recursion formula on Weil–Petersson volume and applications /rYi Huang --tRigidity phenomena in the mapping class group /rJavier Aramayona, Juan Souto --tHarmonic volume and its applications /rYuuki Tadokoro --tTorus bundles and 2-forms on the universal family of Riemann surfaces /rRobin de Jong --tCubic Differentials in the Differential Geometry of Surfaces /rJohn Loftin, Ian McIntosh --tTwo-generator groups acting on the complex hyperbolic plane /rPierre Will --tConfiguration spaces of planar linkages /rAlexey Sossinsky --tQuasiconformal mappings on the Heisenberg group: An overview /rIoannis D.

It is divided into five parts:
Part A: The metric and the analytic theory.
Part B: The group theory.
Part C: Representation theory and generalized structures.
Part D: The Grothendieck–Teichmüller theory.
Part D: Sources.
The topics surveyed include Grothendieck’s construction of the analytic structure of Teichmüller space, identities on the geodesic length spectrum of hyperbolic surfaces (including Mirzakhani’s application to the computation of Weil–Petersson volumes), moduli spaces of configurations spaces, the Teichmüller tower with the action of the Galois group on dessins d’enfants, and several others actions related to surfaces. The last part contains three papers by Teichmüller, translated into English with mathematical commentaries, and a document that contains H. Grötzsch’s comments on Teichmüller’s famous paper Extremale quasikonforme Abbildungen und quadratische Differentiale.

They were introduced in the 1930s, when topologists tried to detect topological manifolds among more general spaces (this is nowadays called the manifold recognition problem). As such, generalized manifolds have served to understand the nature of genuine manifolds. However, it soon became more important to study the category of generalized manifolds itself.
A breakthrough was made in the 1990s, when several topologists discovered a systematic way of constructing higher-dimensional generalized manifolds, based on advanced surgery techniques. In fact, the development of controlled surgery theory and the study of generalized manifolds developed in parallel. In this process, earlier studies of geometric surgery turned out to be very helpful.
Generalized manifolds will continue to be an attractive subject to study, for there remain several unsolved fundamental problems. Moreover, they hold promise for new research, e.g. for finding appropriate structures on these spaces which could bring to light geometric (or even analytic) aspects of higher-dimensional generalized manifolds.
This is the first book to systematically collect the most important material on higher-dimensional generalized manifolds and controlled surgery. It is self-contained and its extensive list of references reflects the historic development. The book is based on our graduate courses and seminars, as well as our talks given at various meetings, and is suitable for advanced graduate students and researchers in algebraic and geometric topology.07aTopology2bicssc07aManifolds and cell complexes2msc07aCategory theory; homological algebra2msc07a$K$-theory2msc1 aHegenbarth, Friedrich,eauthor.1 aRepovš, Dušan,eauthor.40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/156423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/cavicchioli_mini.jpg03154nam a22003735a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001600168084003600184245008700220260008200307300003400389336002600423337002600449338003600475347002400511505052000535506006501055520138001120650004102500650002302541650002302564650004002587650002802627700002502655856003202680856006802712204-160630CH-001817-320160630234501.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa160630e20160725sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719657170a10.4171/1572doi ach0018173 7aPBV2bicssc a05-xxa11-xxa13-xxa14-xx2msc10aAbsolute Arithmetic and $\mathbb F_1$-Geometryh[electronic resource] /cKoen Thas3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2016 a1 online resource (397 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda00tThe Weyl functor.

On the other hand, the nonexistent field with one element, $\mathbb F_1$, presents itself as a ghost candidate for an absolute basis in Algebraic Geometry to perform the Deninger–Manin program, which aims at solving the classical Riemann Hypothesis.
This book, which is the first of its kind in the $\mathbb F_1$-world, covers several areas in $\mathbb F_1$-theory, and is divided into four main parts – Combinatorial Theory, Homological Algebra, Algebraic Geometry and Absolute Arithmetic.
Topics treated include the combinatorial theory and geometry behind $\mathbb F_1$, categorical foundations, the blend of different scheme theories over $\mathbb F_1$ which are presently available, motives and zeta functions, the Habiro topology, Witt vectors and total positivity, moduli operads, and at the end, even some arithmetic.
Each chapter is carefully written by experts, and besides elaborating on known results, brand new results, open problems and conjectures are also met along the way.
The diversity of the contents, together with the mystery surrounding the field with one element, should attract any mathematician, regardless of speciality.07aCombinatorics & graph theory2bicssc07aCombinatorics2msc07aNumber theory2msc07aCommutative rings and algebras2msc07aAlgebraic geometry2msc1 aThas, Koen,eeditor.40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/157423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/thas_mini_2016.jpg02706nam a22004095a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001700168084003600185245014800221260008200369300003400451336002600485337002600511338003600537347002400573490004800597505030900645506006500954520085001019650004701869650003101916650004001947650006601987650005302053700003102106700002702137700003102164856003202195856006902227205-160613CH-001817-320160613234501.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa160613e20160630sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719662570a10.4171/1622doi ach0018173 7aPBMP2bicssc a53-xxa35-xxa49-xxa60-xx2msc10aGeometry, Analysis and Dynamics on sub-Riemannian Manifoldsh[electronic resource] :bVolume I /cDavide Barilari, Ugo Boscain, Mario Sigalotti3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2016 a1 online resource (332 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aEMS Series of Lectures in Mathematics (ELM)00tSome topics of geometric measure theory in Carnot groups /rFrancesco Serra Cassano --tHypoelliptic operators and some aspects of analysis and geometry of sub-Riemannian spaces /rNicola Garofalo --tSub-Laplacians and hypoelliptic operators on totally geodesic Riemannian foliations /rFabrice Baudoin.1 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aSub-Riemannian manifolds model media with constrained dynamics: motion at any point is only allowed along a limited set of directions, which are prescribed by the physical problem.

However, even a scientifically interested layman would be hard pressed to point out aspects of our society where contemporary mathematical research is essential. Most popular examples are finance, engineering, wheather and industry, but the way mathematics comes into play is widely unknown in the public.

Thirty years after its foundation, it is a well-established and very active field of mathematics. Originating from Voiculescu’s attempt to solve the free group factor problem in operator algebras, free probability has important connections with random matrix theory, combinatorics, harmonic analysis, representation theory of large groups, and wireless communication.
These lecture notes arose from a masterclass in Münster, Germany and present the state of free probability from an operator algebraic perspective. This volume includes introductory lectures on random matrices and combinatorics of free probability (Speicher), free monotone transport (Shlyakhtenko), free group factors (Dykema), free convolution (Bercovici), easy quantum groups (Weber), and a historical review with an outlook (Voiculescu). In order to make it more accessible, the exposition features a chapter on basics in free probability, and exercises for each part.
This book is aimed at master students to early career researchers familiar with basic notions and concepts from operator algebras.07aFunctional analysis2bicssc07aGroups & group theory2bicssc07aFunctional analysis2msc07aGroup theory and generalizations2msc07aOperator theory2msc07aProbability theory and stochastic processes2msc1 aVoiculescu, Dan-Virgil,eeditor.1 aStammeier, Nicolai,eeditor.1 aWeber, Moritz,eeditor.40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/165423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/voiculescu_mini.jpg02583nam a22003855a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001700168084003600185100003000221245010700251260008200358300003400440336002600474337002600500338003600526347002400562490004000586506006500626520120000691650003401891650004201925650004001967650001802007650003802025700003402063856003202097856006802129209-160920CH-001817-320160920234502.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa160920e20160930sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719666370a10.4171/1662doi ach0018173 7aPBFD2bicssc a20-xxa22-xxa51-xxa57-xx2msc1 aCornulier, Yves,eauthor.10aMetric Geometry of Locally Compact Groupsh[electronic resource] /cYves Cornulier, Pierre de la Harpe3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2016 a1 online resource (243 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aEMS Tracts in Mathematics (ETM)v251 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aWinner of the 2016 EMS Monograph Award!
The main aim of this book is the study of locally compact groups from a geometric perspective, with an emphasis on appropriate metrics that can be defined on them. The approach has been successful for finitely generated groups, and can favourably be extended to locally compact groups. Parts of the book address the coarse geometry of metric spaces, where ‘coarse’ refers to that part of geometry concerning properties that can be formulated in terms of large distances only. This point of view is instrumental in studying locally compact groups.
Basic results in the subject are exposed with complete proofs, others are stated with appropriate references. Most importantly, the development of the theory is illustrated by numerous examples, including matrix groups with entries in the the field of real or complex numbers, or other locally compact fields such as p-adic fields, isometry groups of various metric spaces, and, last but not least, discrete group themselves.
The book is aimed at graduate students and advanced undergraduate students, as well as mathematicians who wish some introduction to coarse geometry and locally compact groups.07aGroups & group theory2bicssc07aGroup theory and generalizations2msc07aTopological groups, Lie groups2msc07aGeometry2msc07aManifolds and cell complexes2msc1 ade la Harpe, Pierre,eauthor.40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/166423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/cornulier_mini.jpg02662nam a22003495a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001700168084001500185100002900200245010400229260008200333300003400415336002600449337002600475338003600501347002400537490004000561506006500601520143700666650002902103650005502132700002902187856003202216856006402248210-161219CH-001817-320161219234501.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa161219e20170112sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719667070a10.4171/1672doi ach0018173 7aPBKD2bicssc a32-xx2msc1 aGuedj, Vincent,eauthor.10aDegenerate Complex Monge–Ampère Equationsh[electronic resource] /cVincent Guedj, Ahmed Zeriahi3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2017 a1 online resource (496 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aEMS Tracts in Mathematics (ETM)v261 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aWinner of the 2016 EMS Monograph Award!
Complex Monge–Ampère equations have been one of the most powerful tools in Kähler geometry since Aubin and Yau’s classical works, culminating in Yau’s solution to the Calabi conjecture. A notable application is the construction of Kähler-Einstein metrics on some compact Kähler manifolds. In recent years degenerate complex Monge–Ampère equations have been intensively studied, requiring more advanced tools.
The main goal of this book is to give a self-contained presentation of the recent developments of pluripotential theory on compact Kähler manifolds and its application to Kähler–Einstein metrics on mildly singular varieties. After reviewing basic properties of plurisubharmonic functions, Bedford–Taylor’s local theory of complex Monge–Ampère measures is developed. In order to solve degenerate complex Monge–Ampère equations on compact Kähler manifolds, fine properties of quasi-plurisubharmonic functions are explored, classes of finite energies defined and various maximum principles established. After proving Yau’s celebrated theorem as well as its recent generalizations, the results are then used to solve the (singular) Calabi conjecture and to construct (singular) Kähler–Einstein metrics on some varieties with mild singularities.
The book is accessible to advanced students and researchers of complex analysis and differential geometry.07aComplex analysis2bicssc07aSeveral complex variables and analytic spaces2msc1 aZeriahi, Ahmed,eauthor.40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/167423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/guedj_mini.jpg03124nam a22003855a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001700168084002200185245020300207260008200410300003400492336002600526337002600552338003600578347002400614490004800638505029800686506006500984520138001049650003502429650004602464650003102510700003502541700003602576700003002612856003202642856006402674211-161121CH-001817-320161121234501.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa161121e20161130sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719668770a10.4171/1682doi ach0018173 7aPBKJ2bicssc a37-xxa53-xx2msc10aDynamics Done with Your Bare Handsh[electronic resource] :bLecture notes by Diana Davis, Bryce Weaver, Roland K.

It is intended to introduce (under)graduate students to the field of dynamical systems by emphasizing elementary examples, exercises and bare hands constructions.
The lecture of Diana Davis is devoted to billiard flows on polygons, a simple-sounding class of continuous time dynamical system for which many problems remain open.
Bryce Weaver focuses on the dynamics of a 2x2 matrix acting on the flat torus. This example introduced by Vladimir Arnold illustrates the wide class of uniformly hyperbolic dynamical systems, including the geodesic flow for negatively curved, compact manifolds.
Roland Roeder considers a dynamical system on the complex plane governed by a quadratic map with a complex parameter. These maps exhibit complicated dynamics related to the Mandelbrot set defined as the set of parameters for which the orbit remains bounded.
Pablo Lessa deals with a type of non-deterministic dynamical system: a simple walk on an infinite graph, obtained by starting at a vertex and choosing a random neighbor at each step. The central question concerns the recurrence property. When the graph is a Cayley graph of a group, the behavior of the walk is deeply related to algebraic properties of the group.07aDifferential equations2bicssc07aDynamical systems and ergodic theory2msc07aDifferential geometry2msc1 aDal’Bo, Françoise,eeditor.1 aLedrappier, François,eeditor.1 aWilkinson, Amie,eeditor.40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/168423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/dalbo_mini.jpg02433nam a22003855a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001700168072001700185084002900202100003100231245009700262260008200359300003400441336002600475337002600501338003600527347002400563490004000587506006500627520106100692650003501753650003101788650004001819650006601859650002401925856003201949856006601981212-161205CH-001817-320161205234500.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa161205e20170101sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719669470a10.4171/1692doi ach0018173 7aPBKJ2bicssc 7aPBCD2bicssc a35-xxa49-xxa81-xx2msc1 aRaymond, Nicolas,eauthor.10aBound States of the Magnetic Schrödinger Operatorh[electronic resource] /cNicolas Raymond3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2017 a1 online resource (394 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aEMS Tracts in Mathematics (ETM)v271 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aThis book is a synthesis of recent advances in the spectral theory of the magnetic Schrödinger operator. It can be considered a catalog of concrete examples of magnetic spectral asymptotics.
Since the presentation involves many notions of spectral theory and semiclassical analysis, it begins with a concise account of concepts and methods used in the book and is illustrated by many elementary examples.
Assuming various points of view (power series expansions, Feshbach–Grushin reductions, WKB constructions, coherent states decompositions, normal forms) a theory of Magnetic Harmonic Approximation is then established which allows, in particular, accurate descriptions of the magnetic eigenvalues and eigenfunctions. Some parts of this theory, such as those related to spectral reductions or waveguides, are still accessible to advanced students while others (e.g., the discussion of the Birkhoff normal form and its spectral consequences, or the results related to boundary magnetic wells in dimension three) are intended for seasoned researchers.07aDifferential equations2bicssc07aMathematical logic2bicssc07aPartial differential equations2msc07aCalculus of variations and optimal control; optimization2msc07aQuantum theory2msc40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/169423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/raymond_mini.jpg02237nam a22003735a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001700168072001700185084002200202100003100224245009600255260008200351300003400433336002600467337002600493338003600519347002400555490005100579506006500630520091700695650003501612650004701647650004001694650003101734856003201765856006601797213-161205CH-001817-320161205234500.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa161205e20170101sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719670070a10.4171/1702doi ach0018173 7aPBKJ2bicssc 7aPBMP2bicssc a35-xxa53-xx2msc1 aFigalli, Alessio,eauthor.10aThe Monge–Ampère Equation and Its Applicationsh[electronic resource] /cAlessio Figalli3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2017 a1 online resource (210 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aZurich Lectures in Advanced Mathematics (ZLAM)1 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aThe Monge–Ampère equation is one of the most important partial differential equations, appearing in many problems in analysis and geometry.

Partial differential equations (PDEs) and geometric measure theory (GMT) are branches of analysis whose connections are usually not emphasized in introductory graduate courses. Yet, one cannot dissociate the notions of mass or electric charge, naturally described in terms of measures, from the physical potential they generate. Having such a principle in mind, this book illustrates the beautiful interplay between tools from PDEs and GMT in a simple and elegant way by investigating properties like existence and regularity of solutions of linear and nonlinear elliptic PDEs.
Inspired by a variety of sources, from the pioneer balayage scheme of Poincaré to more recent results related to the Thomas–Fermi and the Chern–Simons models, the problems covered in this book follow an original presentation, intended to emphasize the main ideas in the proofs. Classical techniques like regularity theory, maximum principles and the method of sub- and supersolutions are adapted to the setting where merely integrability or density assumptions on the data are available. The distinguished role played by capacities and precise representatives is also explained.
Other special features are:
• the remarkable equivalence between Sobolev capacities and Hausdorff contents in terms of trace inequalities;
• the strong approximation of measures in terms of capacities or densities, normally absent from GMT books;
• the rescue of the strong maximum principle for the Schrödinger operator involving singular potentials.
This book invites the reader to a trip through modern techniques in the frontier of elliptic PDEs and GMT, and is addressed to graduate students and researchers having some deep interest in analysis. Most of the chapters can be read independently, and only basic knowledge of measure theory, functional analysis and Sobolev spaces is required.07aCalculus & mathematical analysis2bicssc07aMeasure and integration2msc07aPotential theory2msc40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/140423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/ponce_mini.jpg02363nam a22003615a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001600168084002900184100003600213245009000249260008200339300003400421336002600455337002600481338003600507347002400543490005100567506006500618520104000683650003701723650002001760650005301780650006401833856003201897856007201929215-170224CH-001817-320170224234501.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa170224e20170310sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719673170a10.4171/1732doi ach0018173 7aPBT2bicssc a62-xxa60-xxa91-xx2msc1 aSchachermayer, Walter,eauthor.10aAsymptotic Theory of Transaction Costsh[electronic resource] /cWalter Schachermayer3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2017 a1 online resource (160 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aZurich Lectures in Advanced Mathematics (ZLAM)1 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aA classical topic in Mathematical Finance is the theory of portfolio optimization. Robert Merton's work from the early seventies had enormous impact on academic research as well as on the paradigms guiding practitioners.
One of the ramifications of this topic is the analysis of (small) proportional transaction costs, such as a Tobin tax. The lecture notes present some striking recent results of the asymptotic dependence of the relevant quantities when transaction costs tend to zero.
An appealing feature of the consideration of transaction costs is that it allows for the first time to reconcile the no arbitrage paradigm with the use of non-semimartingale models, such as fractional Brownian motion. This leads to the culminating theorem of the present lectures which roughly reads as follows: for a fractional Brownian motion stock price model we always find a shadow price process for given transaction costs. This process is a semimartingale and can therefore be dealt with using the usual machinery of mathematical finance.07aProbability & statistics2bicssc07aStatistics2msc07aProbability theory and stochastic processes2msc07aGame theory, economics, social and behavioral sciences2msc40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/173423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/schachermayer_mini.jpg05075nam a22004335a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001700168084003600185245017600221260008200397300003400479336002600513337002600539338003600565347002400601490004100625505241300666506006503079520105303144650003104197650002804228650004004256650004304296650004604339700003004385700003204415700002804447700003304475700003604508856003204544856006504576216-161205CH-001817-320161205234500.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa161205e20170112sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719671770a10.4171/1712doi ach0018173 7aPBMW2bicssc a14-xxa16-xxa17-xxa18-xx2msc10aRepresentation Theory – Current Trends and Perspectivesh[electronic resource] /cHenning Krause, Peter Littelmann, Gunter Malle, Karl-Hermann Neeb, Christoph Schweigert3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2017 a1 online resource (773 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aEMS Series of Congress Reports (ECR)00tSymmetric superspaces: slices, radial parts, and invariant functions /rAlexander Alldridge --tGeometry of quiver Grassmannians of Dynkin type with applications to cluster algebras /rGiovanni Cerulli Irelli --tSpherical varieties and perspectives in representation theory /rStéphanie Cupit-Foutou --tCategorical actions from Lusztig induction and restriction on finite general linear groups /rOlivier Dudas, Michela Varagnolo, Éric Vasserot --tHomological mirror symmetry for singularities /rWolfgang Ebeling --tOn the category of finite-dimensional representations of OSp$(r|2n)$: Part I /rMichael Ehrig, Catharina Stroppel --tOn cubes of Frobenius extensions /rBen Elias, Noah Snyder, Geordie Williamson --tOn toric degenerations of flag varieties /rXin Fang, Ghislain Fourier, Peter Littelmann --tSubquotient categories of the affine category $\mathcal O$ at the critical level /rPeter Fiebig --tLow-dimensional topology, low-dimensional field theory and representation theory /rJürgen Fuchs, Christoph Schweigert --tDerived categories of quasi-hereditary algebras and their derived composition series /rMartin Kalck --tDominant dimension and applications /rSteffen Koenig --tHighest weight categories and strict polynomial functors.

The core principles of the projects realized in the framework of the priority program have been categorification and geometrization, this is also reflected by the contributions to this volume.
Apart from the articles by former postdocs supported by the priority program, the volume contains a number of invited research and survey articles, many of them are extended versions of talks given at the last joint meeting of the priority program in Bad Honnef in March 2015. This volume is covering current research topics from the representation theory of finite groups, of algebraic groups, of Lie superalgebras, of finite dimensional algebras and of infinite dimensional Lie groups.
Graduate students and researchers in mathematics interested in representation theory will find this volume inspiring. It contains many stimulating contributions to the development of this broad and extremely diverse subject.07aAlgebraic geometry2bicssc07aAlgebraic geometry2msc07aAssociative rings and algebras2msc07aNonassociative rings and algebras2msc07aCategory theory; homological algebra2msc1 aKrause, Henning,eeditor.1 aLittelmann, Peter,eeditor.1 aMalle, Gunter,eeditor.1 aNeeb, Karl-Hermann,eeditor.1 aSchweigert, Christoph,eeditor.40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/171423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/krause_mini.jpg02089nam a22003375a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001700168084001500185100002800200245012000228260008200348300003400430336002600464337002600490338003600516347002400552490004800576506006500624520087800689650003501567650004001602856003201642856007701674217-170224CH-001817-320170224234501.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa170224e20170323sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719672470a10.4171/1722doi ach0018173 7aPBKJ2bicssc a35-xx2msc1 aTriebel, Hans,eauthor.10aPDE Models for Chemotaxis and Hydrodynamics in Supercritical Function Spacesh[electronic resource] /cHans Triebel3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2017 a1 online resource (140 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aEMS Series of Lectures in Mathematics (ELM)1 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aThis book deals with PDE models for chemotaxis (the movement of biological cells or organisms in response of chemical gradients) and hydrodynamics (viscous, homogeneous, and incompressible fluid filling the entire space). The underlying Keller–Segel equations (chemotaxis), Navier–Stokes equations (hydrodynamics), and their numerous modifications and combinations are treated in the context of inhomogeneous spaces of Besov–Sobolev type paying special attention to mapping properties of related nonlinearities. Further models are considered, including (deterministic) Fokker–Planck equations and chemotaxis Navier–Stokes equations.
These notes are addressed to graduate students and mathematicians having a working knowledge of basic elements of the theory of function spaces, especially of Besov-Sobolev type and interested in mathematical biology and physics.07aDifferential equations2bicssc07aPartial differential equations2msc40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/172423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/triebel_chemotaxis_mini.jpg05900nam a22004095a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001600168072001700184084002200201245017500223260008200398300003400480336002600514337002600540338003600566347002400602490004100626505308400667506006503751520133803816650004805154650003505202650002405237650004005261700003305301700003105334700002605365856003205391856006705423218-170419CH-001817-320170419234501.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa170419e20170505sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719675570a10.4171/1752doi ach0018173 7aPHT2bicssc 7aPBKJ2bicssc a81-xxa35-xx2msc10aFunctional Analysis and Operator Theory for Quantum Physicsh[electronic resource] :bThe Pavel Exner Anniversary Volume /cJaroslav Dittrich, Hynek Kovařík, Ari Laptev3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2017 a1 online resource (597 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aEMS Series of Congress Reports (ECR)00tRelative partition function of Coulomb plus delta interaction /rSergio Albeverio, Claudio Cacciapuoti, Mauro Spreafico --tInequivalence of quantum Dirac fields of different masses and the underlying general structures involved /rAsao Arai --tOn a class of Schrödinger operators exhibiting spectral transition /rDiana Barseghyan, Olga Rossi --tOn the quantum mechanical three-body problem with zero-range interactions /rGiulia Basti, Alessandro Teta --tOn the index of meromorphic operator-valued functions and some applications /rJussi Behrndt, Fritz Gesztesy, Helge Holden, Roger Nichols --tTrace formulae for Schrödinger operators with singular interactions /rJussi Behrndt, Matthias Langer, Vladimir Lotoreichik --tAn improved bound for the non-existence of radial solutions of the Brezis–Nirenberg problem in $\mathbb H^n$ /rRafael D.

It collects contributions by numerous scientists with expertise in mathematical physics and in particular in problems arising from quantum mechanics. The questions addressed in the contributions cover a large range of topics. A lot of attention was paid to differential operators with zero range interactions, which are often used as models in quantum mechanics. Several authors considered problems related to systems with mixed-dimensions such as quantum waveguides, quantum layers and quantum graphs. Eigenvalues and eigenfunctions of Laplace and Schrödinger operators are discussed too, as well as systems with adiabatic time evolution. Although most of the problems treated in the book have a quantum mechanical background, some contributions deal with issues which go well beyond this framework; for example the Cayley–Hamilton theorem, approximation formulae for contraction semigroups or factorization of analytic operator-valued Fredholm functions. As for the mathematical tools involved, the book provides a wide variety of techniques from functional analysis and operator theory.
Altogether the volume presents a collection of research papers which will be of interest to any active scientist working in one of the above mentioned fields.07aQuantum physics (quantum mechanics)2bicssc07aDifferential equations2bicssc07aQuantum theory2msc07aPartial differential equations2msc1 aDittrich, Jaroslav,eeditor.1 aKovařík, Hynek,eeditor.1 aLaptev, Ari,eeditor.40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/175423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/dittrich_mini.jpg02596nam a22004095a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001500168072001600183084003600199100003500235245013200270260008200402300003400484336002600518337002600544338003600570347002400606490003900630506006500669520109300734650002401827650002001851650004001871650004001911650005501951650004602006700003002052856003202082856007202114219-170424CH-001817-320170424234500.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa170424e20170512sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719674870a10.4171/1742doi ach0018173 7aPB2bicssc 7aPBF2bicssc a16-xxa13-xxa15-xxa18-xx2msc1 aSkowroński, Andrzej,eauthor.10aFrobenius Algebras IIh[electronic resource] :bTilted and Hochschild Extension Algebras /cAndrzej Skowroński, Kunio Yamagata3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2017 a1 online resource (629 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aEMS Textbooks in Mathematics (ETB)1 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aThis is the second of three volumes which will provide a comprehensive introduction to the modern representation theory of Frobenius algebras. The first part of the book is devoted to fundamental results of the representation theory of finite dimensional hereditary algebras and their tilted algebras, which allow to describe the representation theory of prominent classes of Frobenius algebras.
The second part is devoted to basic classical and recent results concerning the Hochschild extensions of finite dimensional algebras by duality bimodules and their module categories. Moreover, the shapes of connected components of the stable Auslander-Reiten quivers of Frobenius algebras are described.
The only prerequisite in this volume is a basic knowledge of linear algebra and some results of the first volume. It includes complete proofs of all results presented and provides a rich supply of examples and exercises.
The text is primarily addressed to graduate students starting research in the representation theory of algebras as well mathematicians working in other fields.07aMathematics2bicssc07aAlgebra2bicssc07aAssociative rings and algebras2msc07aCommutative rings and algebras2msc07aLinear and multilinear algebra; matrix theory2msc07aCategory theory; homological algebra2msc1 aYamagata, Kunio,eauthor.40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/174423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/skowronski_II_mini.jpg02775nam a22003855a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001600168072001700184084002200201100003000223245011200253260008200365300003400447336002600481337002600507338003600533347002400569490003900593506006500632520140000697650004702097650002702144650004902171650003802220700002802258856003202286856007102318223-170628CH-001817-320170628234501.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa170628e20170711sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719679370a10.4171/1792doi ach0018173 7aUAA2bicssc 7aPBFL2bicssc a94-xxa12-xx2msc1 aJustesen, Jørn,eauthor.10aA Course In Error-Correcting Codesh[electronic resource] :bSecond edition /cJørn Justesen, Tom Høholdt3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2017 a1 online resource (226 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aEMS Textbooks in Mathematics (ETB)1 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aThis book, updated and enlarged for the second edition, is written as a text for a course aimed at 3rd or 4th year students. Only some familiarity with elementary linear algebra and probability is directly assumed, but some maturity is required. The students may specialize in discrete mathematics, computer science, or communication engineering. The book is also a suitable introduction to coding theory for researchers from related fields or for professionals who want to supplement their theoretical basis. The book gives the coding basics for working on projects in any of the above areas, but material specific to one of these fields has not been included. The chapters cover the codes and decoding methods that are currently of most interest in research, development, and application. They give a relatively brief presentation of the essential results, emphasizing the interrelations between different methods and proofs of all important results. A sequence of problems at the end of each chapter serves to review the results and give the student an appreciation of the concepts. In addition, some problems and suggestions for projects indicate direction for further work. The presentation encourages the use of programming tools for studying codes, implementing decoding methods, and simulating performance. Specific examples of programming exercises are provided on the book's home page.07aMathematical theory of computation2bicssc07aFields & rings2bicssc07aInformation and communication, circuits2msc07aField theory and polynomials2msc1 aHøholdt, Tom,eauthor.40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/179423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/justesen_2nd_mini.jpg02284nam a22003615a 4500001001100000003001200011005001700023006001900040007001500059008004100074020001800115024002100133040001400154072001700168084002200185100003300207245011600240260008200356300003400438336002600472337002600498338003600524347002400560490004800584506006500632520097600697650003101673650003801704650005501742700002801797856003201825856006501857224-170711CH-001817-320170711234501.0a fot ||| 0|cr nn mmmmamaa170711e20170731sz fot ||| 0|eng d a978303719680970a10.4171/1802doi ach0018173 7aPBPD2bicssc a57-xxa32-xx2msc1 aMichel, Françoise,eauthor.10aHigher-Dimensional Knots According to Michel Kervaireh[electronic resource] /cFrançoise Michel, Claude Weber3 aZuerich, Switzerland :bEuropean Mathematical Society Publishing House,c2017 a1 online resource (144 pages) atextbtxt2rdacontent acomputerbc2rdamedia aonline resourcebcr2rdacarrier atext filebPDF2rda0 aEMS Series of Lectures in Mathematics (ELM)1 aRestricted to subscribers:uhttp://www.ems-ph.org/ebooks.php aMichel Kervaire wrote six papers which can be considered fundamental to the development of higher-dimensional knot theory. They are not only of historical interest but naturally introduce to some of the essential techniques in this fascinating theory.
This book is written to provide graduate students with the basic concepts necessary to read texts in higher-dimensional knot theory and its relations with singularities. The first chapters are devoted to a presentation of Pontrjagin’s construction, surgery and the work of Kervaire and Milnor on homotopy spheres. We pursue with Kervaire’s fundamental work on the group of a knot, knot modules and knot cobordism. We add developments due to Levine. Tools (like open books, handlebodies, plumbings, …) often used but hard to find in original articles are presented in appendices. We conclude with a description of the Kervaire invariant and the consequences of the Hill–Hopkins–Ravenel results in knot theory.07aAlgebraic topology2bicssc07aManifolds and cell complexes2msc07aSeveral complex variables and analytic spaces2msc1 aWeber, Claude,eauthor.40uhttps://doi.org/10.4171/180423cover imageuhttp://www.ems-ph.org/img/books/michel_mini.jpg
