By Tammo Tom Dieck

This ebook is written as a textbook on algebraic topology. the 1st half covers the cloth for 2 introductory classes approximately homotopy and homology. the second one half offers extra complicated functions and ideas (duality, attribute sessions, homotopy teams of spheres, bordism). the writer recommends beginning an introductory direction with homotopy conception. For this function, classical effects are awarded with new simple proofs. however, you will begin extra frequently with singular and axiomatic homology. extra chapters are dedicated to the geometry of manifolds, telephone complexes and fibre bundles. a different function is the wealthy offer of approximately 500 workouts and difficulties. numerous sections contain themes that have no longer seemed ahead of in textbooks in addition to simplified proofs for a few vital effects. necessities are typical element set topology (as recalled within the first chapter), simple algebraic notions (modules, tensor product), and a few terminology from class conception. the purpose of the booklet is to introduce complicated undergraduate and graduate (master's) scholars to uncomplicated instruments, thoughts and result of algebraic topology. enough historical past fabric from geometry and algebra is incorporated. A ebook of the ecu Mathematical Society (EMS). allotted in the Americas by way of the yankee Mathematical Society.

Topological Degree Approach to Bifurcation Problems

Topological bifurcation thought is without doubt one of the such a lot crucial subject matters in arithmetic. This ebook includes unique bifurcation effects for the life of oscillations and chaotic behaviour of differential equations and discrete dynamical platforms lower than version of concerned parameters. utilizing topological measure concept and a perturbation strategy in dynamical platforms, a large number of nonlinear difficulties are studied, together with: non-smooth mechanical platforms with dry frictions; systems with relay hysteresis; differential equations on limitless lattices of Frenkel-Kontorova and discretized Klein-Gordon forms; blue sky catastrophes for reversible dynamical structures; buckling of beams; and discontinuous wave equations.

It assembles learn papers which replicate different currents in low-dimensional topology. The topology of 3-manifolds, hyperbolic geometry and knot concept become significant issues.

Infinite-dimensional dynamical systems : an introduction to dissipative parabolic PDEs and the theory of global attractors

"This booklet develops the idea of world attractors for a category of parabolic PDEs that incorporates reaction-diffusion equations and the Navier-Stokes equations, examples which are handled intimately. A long bankruptcy on Sobolev areas offers the framework that permits a rigorous remedy of lifestyles and forte of strategies for either linear time-independent difficulties (Poisson's equation) and the nonlinear evolution equations that generate the infinite-dimensional dynamical platforms of the identify.
