A modern and student-friendly introduction to this popular subject: it takes a more "natural" approach and develops the theory at a gentle pace with an emphasis on clear explanations Features plenty of worked examples and exercises, complete with full solutions, to encourage independent study Previous books by Howie in the SUMS series have attracted excellent reviews
The Virasoro algebra is an infinite dimensional Lie algebra that plays an increasingly important role in mathematics and theoretical physics. This book describes some fundamental facts about the representation theory of the Virasoro algebra in a self-contained manner. Topics include the structure of Verma modules and Fock modules, the classification of (unitarizable) Harish-Chandra modules, tilting equivalence, and the rational vertex operator algebras... more...
Can one learn linear algebra solely by solving problems? Paul Halmos thinks so, and you will too once you read this book. The Linear Algebra Problem Book is an ideal text for a course in linear algebra. It takes the student step by step from the basic axioms of a field through the notion of vector spaces, on to advanced concepts such as inner product spaces and normality. All of this occurs by way of a series of 164 problems, each with hints and, at... more...
This book gives the concepts and background necessary to understand and build algorithms for computing elementary functions, presenting and structuring the algorithms (hardware- oriented as well as software-oriented), and discusses issues related to the accurate floating-point implementation. The purpose is not to give "cookbook recipes" that allow one to implement some given function, but to provide the reader with the knowledge that is necessary to... more...
"This book revives and vastly expands the classical theory of resultants and discriminants. Most of the main new results of the book have been published earlier in more than a dozen joint papers of the authors. The book nicely complements these original papers with many examples illustrating both old and new results of the theory."—Mathematical Reviews
"Surveys and applies fundamental ideas and techniques in the theory of curves, surfaces, and threefolds to a wide variety of subjects. Furnishes all of the basic definitions necessary for understanding and provides interrelated articles that support and refer to one another."
Anyone who has studied abstract algebra and linear algebra as an undergraduate can understand this book. The first six chapters provide material for a first course, while the rest of the book covers more advanced topics. This revised edition retains the clarity of presentation that was the hallmark of the previous editions. From the reviews: "Rotman has given us a very readable and valuable text, and has shown us many beautiful vistas along his... more...
* Focuses on two fundamental questions related to semisimple Lie groups: the geometry of Riemannian symmetric spaces and their compactifications, and branching laws for unitary representations * Wide applications of compactification techniques * Concrete examples and relevant exercises engage the reader * Knowledge of basic representation theory of Lie groups, semisimple Lie groups and symmetric spaces is required
Intersection cohomology assigns groups which satisfy a generalized form of Poincaré duality over the rationals to a stratified singular space. This monograph introduces a method that assigns to certain classes of stratified spaces cell complexes, called intersection spaces, whose ordinary rational homology satisfies generalized Poincaré duality. The cornerstone of the method is a process of spatial homology truncation, whose functoriality properties... more...
Recent years have seen a significant rise of interest in max-linear theory and techniques. Specialised international conferences and seminars or special sessions devoted to max-algebra have been organised. This book aims to provide a first detailed and self-contained account of linear-algebraic aspects of max-algebra for general (that is both irreducible and reducible) matrices. Among the main features of the book is the presentation of the... more...
