Surveys in Differential Geometry, Vol. 18 (2013): Geometry and Topology

This volume includes papers presented by several speakers at the Geometry and Topology conferences at Harvard University in 2011 and at Lehigh University in 2012. Included are works by Simon Brendle, on the Lagrangian minimal surface equation and related problems; by Sergio Cecotti and Cumrun Vafa, concerning classification of complete N=2 supersymmetric theories in four dimensions; by F. Reese Harvey and H. Blaine Lawson Jr., on exi...

Transparent Shells: Form, Topology, Structure

This book describes the design, detailing and structural engineering of filigree, double-curved and long-span glazed shells of minimal weight and ingenious details. Innovative, clear and understandable geometric principles for the design of double-curved shell structures are explained in a practical manner. The principles are simple to apply with the use of functions now available in most CAD programs. The author demonstrates how flo...

With Math Lab for Kids, kids can: - Explore geometry and topology with hands-on examples like prisms, antiprisms, Platonic solids, and Möbius strips. - Build logic skills by playing and strategizing through tangra...

Managing the Internet of Things: Architectures, Theories and Applications

The Internet of Things (IoT) refers to the evolution of the internet as the interconnection not just of computers, but also uniquely identifiable, pervasive embedded devices, for example, smart thermostats and wearable technology. Research has estimated there will be nearly 30 billion devices on the Internet of Things within the next decade. The implementation and deployment of the IoT brings with it management challenges around seam...

Dualities for Structures of Applied Logics

This book provides a framework for presenting algebras and frames arising as semantic structures for formal languages and for proving relationships between the structures. For this purpose a discrete framework, referred to as discrete duality, is used rather than a topological framework. Ideas from the classical dualities and representations of Stone, Priestley, and Urquhart are applied in such a way that topology is not part of any ...

Topological Degree Theory and Applications

Since the 1960s, many researchers have extended topological degree theory to various non-compact type nonlinear mappings, and it has become a valuable tool in nonlinear analysis. Presenting a survey of advances made in generalizations of degree theory during the past decade, this book focuses on topological degree theory in normed spaces and its applications. The authors begin by introducing the Brouwer degree theory in Rn, then cons...

Self-Organization and Green Applications in Cognitive Radio Networks

Self-Organization and Green Applications in Cognitive Radio Networks provides recent research on the developments of efficient cognitive network topology. The most current procedures and results are presented to demonstrate how developments in this area can reduce complications, confusion, and even costs. The book also identifies future challenges that are predicted to arrive in the Cognitive Radio Network along with potential soluti...

Classification of Lipschitz Mappings

Classification of Lipschitz Mappings presents a systematic, self-contained treatment of a new classification of Lipschitz mappings and its application in many topics of metric fixed point theory. Suitable for readers interested in metric fixed point theory, differential equations, and dynamical systems, the book only requires a basic background in functional analysis and topology. The author focuses on a more precise classification o...

Intelligence of Low Dimensional Topology 2006

This volume gathers the contributions from the international conference “Intelligence of Low Dimensional Topology 2006,” which took place in Hiroshima in 2006. The aim of this volume is to promote research in low dimensional topology with the focus on knot theory and related topics. The papers include comprehensive reviews and some latest results.

Cassandra: The Definitive Guide: Distributed Data at Web Scale, 2nd Edition
