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.
