Analytic K-homology attracts jointly principles from algebraic topology, sensible research and geometry. it's a software - a way of conveying info between those 3 matters - and it's been used with specacular luck to find outstanding theorems throughout a large span of arithmetic. the aim of this booklet is to acquaint the reader with the fundamental principles of analytic K-homology and improve a few of its purposes. It encompasses a particular advent to the required sensible research, via an exploration of the connections among K-homology and operator idea, coarse geometry, index thought, and meeting maps, together with an in depth therapy of the Atiyah-Singer Index Theorem. starting with the rudiments of C - algebra concept, the booklet will lead the reader to a couple imperative notions of latest examine in geometric practical research. a lot of the fabric integrated right here hasn't ever formerly seemed in e-book shape.

The Geometry of Moduli Spaces of Sheaves

Now again in print, this very popular booklet has been up-to-date to mirror contemporary advances within the thought of semistable coherent sheaves and their moduli areas, which come with moduli areas in optimistic attribute, moduli areas of vital bundles and of complexes, Hilbert schemes of issues on surfaces, derived different types of coherent sheaves, and moduli areas of sheaves on Calabi-Yau threefolds.

Spaces of Homotopy Self-Equivalences: A Survey

This survey covers teams of homotopy self-equivalence periods of topological areas, and the homotopy form of areas of homotopy self-equivalences. For manifolds, the entire team of equivalences and the mapping category staff are in comparison, as are the corresponding areas. integrated are tools of calculation, a number of calculations, finite new release effects, Whitehead torsion and different components.

Galois Theory of Difference Equations

This ebook lays the algebraic foundations of a Galois thought of linear distinction equations and indicates its dating to the analytic challenge of discovering meromorphic capabilities asymptotic to formal strategies of distinction equations. Classically, this latter query used to be attacked by way of Birkhoff and Tritzinsky and the current paintings corrects and enormously generalizes their contributions.
