Analytic K-homology attracts jointly rules from algebraic topology, sensible research and geometry. it's a device - a method of conveying info between those 3 topics - and it's been used with specacular luck to find impressive theorems throughout a large span of arithmetic. the aim of this publication is to acquaint the reader with the basic principles of analytic K-homology and advance a few of its functions. It features a special advent to the mandatory useful research, by means of an exploration of the connections among K-homology and operator conception, coarse geometry, index conception, and meeting maps, together with a close remedy of the Atiyah-Singer Index Theorem. starting with the rudiments of C - algebra conception, the e-book will lead the reader to a few primary notions of latest learn in geometric practical research. a lot of the cloth incorporated right here hasn't ever formerly seemed in publication shape.

Geometric Modular Forms and Elliptic Curves by Haruzo Hida PDF

This e-book offers a accomplished account of the speculation of moduli areas of elliptic curves (over integer jewelry) and its program to modular types. the development of Galois representations, which play a primary function in Wiles' evidence of the Shimura-Taniyama conjecture, is given. additionally, the ebook offers an overview of the evidence of numerous modularity result of two-dimensional Galois representations (including that of Wiles), in addition to a few of the author's new ends up in that path.

New PDF release: Algebraic Geometry: A First Course

This ebook relies on one-semester classes given at Harvard in 1984, at Brown in 1985, and at Harvard in 1988. it truly is meant to be, because the name indicates, a primary creation to the topic. on the other hand, a couple of phrases are so as in regards to the reasons of the ebook. Algebraic geometry has constructed greatly during the last century.

Classics on Fractals (Studies in Nonlinearity) by Gerald A. Edgar PDF

Fractals are an immense subject in such assorted branches of technological know-how as arithmetic, computing device technological know-how, and physics. Classics on Fractals collects for the 1st time the historical papers on fractal geometry, facing such issues as non-differentiable services, self-similarity, and fractional size.
