By Liviu Nicolaescu
This is the 1st textbook to incorporate themes similar to Morse-Smale flows, min-max concept, second maps and equivariant cohomology, and complicated Morse idea. The exposition is more suitable with examples, difficulties, and illustrations, and may be of curiosity to graduate scholars in addition to researchers. The reader is predicted to have a few familiarity with cohomology idea and with the differential and indispensable calculus on gentle manifolds.
Liviu Nicolaescu is affiliate Professor of arithmetic at collage of Notre Dame.

The aim of the publication is to offer, in a whole and finished means, parts of present study interlacing round the Poncelet porism: dynamics of integrable billiards, algebraic geometry of hyperelliptic Jacobians, and classical projective geometry of pencils of quadrics. crucial effects and ideas, classical in addition to sleek, hooked up to the Poncelet theorem are provided, including a ancient evaluation examining the classical rules and their usual generalizations.
Geometric Topology is a foundational element of smooth arithmetic, related to the examine of spacial homes and invariants of regular items comparable to manifolds and complexes. This quantity, that is meant either as an advent to the topic and as a panoramic resouce for these already grounded in it, contains 21 expository surveys written by means of best specialists and masking lively components of present learn.
Etale cohomology is a vital department in mathematics geometry. This e-book covers the most fabrics in SGA 1, SGA four, SGA four half and SGA five on etale cohomology idea, along with first rate conception, etale primary teams, Galois cohomology, etale cohomology, derived different types, base swap theorems, duality, and ℓ-adic cohomology.
This article provides the classical idea of conics in a latest shape. It comprises many novel effects that aren't simply available in other places. The strategy combines man made and analytic tips on how to derive projective, affine and metrical houses, masking either Euclidean and non-Euclidean geometries.
