Introduction to Topology and Geometry (Pure and Applied by Saul Stahl,Catherine Stenson

By Saul Stahl,Catherine Stenson

An simply obtainable creation to over three centuries of thoughts in geometry

Praise for the 1st Edition

“. . . a welcome substitute to compartmentalized remedies absolute to the outdated considering. This truly written, well-illustrated publication offers adequate historical past to be self-contained.” —CHOICE

This absolutely revised new version deals the main accomplished assurance of recent geometry at the moment on hand at an introductory point. The ebook moves a welcome stability among educational rigor and accessibility, delivering a whole and cohesive photograph of the technological know-how with an extraordinary diversity of topics. 

Illustrating glossy mathematical issues, Introduction to Topology and Geometry, moment Edition discusses introductory topology, algebraic topology, knot concept, the geometry of surfaces, Riemann geometries, primary teams, and differential geometry, which opens the doorways to a wealth of purposes. With its logical, but versatile, association, the Second Edition:

• Explores ancient notes interspersed during the exposition to supply readers with a suppose for a way the mathematical disciplines and theorems got here into being

• offers routines starting from regimen to difficult, permitting readers at various degrees of research to grasp the suggestions and methods

• Bridges possible disparate themes via developing considerate and logical connections

• includes assurance at the parts of polytope conception, which acquaints readers with an exposition of contemporary theory

Introduction to Topology and Geometry, moment Edition is a superb introductory textual content for topology and geometry classes on the upper-undergraduate point. furthermore, the ebook serves as an incredible reference for execs drawn to gaining a deeper knowing of the topic.

Geometry II (Universitext)

This can be the second one of a two-volume textbook that gives a truly readable and vigorous presentation of enormous elements of geometry within the classical feel. for every subject the writer offers a theorem that's esthetically enjoyable and simply said, even though the evidence could be rather challenging and hid. one more powerful trait of the publication is that it presents a complete and unified reference resource for the sector of geometry within the complete breadth of its subfields and ramifications.

A Panoramic View of Riemannian Geometry

This e-book introduces readers to the residing themes of Riemannian Geometry and information the most effects identified up to now. the implications are acknowledged with no particular proofs however the major rules concerned are defined, affording the reader a sweeping panoramic view of just about the whole lot of the sphere. From the reports "The publication has intrinsic price for a scholar in addition to for an skilled geometer.
