Mathematical omnibus : thirty lectures on classic mathematics by D. B Fuks( Book )

13 editions published between 2007 and 2012 in English and Japanese and held by 359 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book consists of thirty lectures on diverse topics, covering much of the mathematical landscape rather than focusing on one area. The reader will learn numerous results that often belong to neither the standard undergraduate nor graduate curriculum and will discover connections between classical and contemporary ideas in algebra, combinatorics, geometry, and topology. The reader's effort will be rewarded in seeing the harmony of each subject. The common thread in the selected subjects is their illustration of the unity and beauty of mathematics. Most lectures contain exercises, and solutio
Cohomology of infinite-dimensional Lie algebras by D. B Fuks( Book )

15 editions published between 1986 and 1998 in English and Spanish and held by 318 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is no question that the cohomology of infinite­ dimensional Lie algebras deserves a brief and separate mono­ graph. This subject is not cover~d by any of the tradition­ al branches of mathematics and is characterized by relative­ ly elementary proofs and varied application. Moreover, the subject matter is widely scattered in various research papers or exists only in verbal form. The theory of infinite-dimensional Lie algebras differs markedly from the theory of finite-dimensional Lie algebras in that the latter possesses powerful classification theo­ rems, which usually allow one to "recognize" any finite­ dimensional Lie algebra (over the field of complex or real numbers), i.e., find it in some list. There are classifica­ tion theorems in the theory of infinite-dimensional Lie al­ gebras as well, but they are encumbered by strong restric­ tions of a technical character. These theorems are useful mainly because they yield a considerable supply of interest­ ing examples. We begin with a list of such examples, and further direct our main efforts to their study
Homotopical topology by A. T Fomenko( )

8 editions published in 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 310 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This classic text of the renowned Moscow mathematical school equips the aspiring mathematician with a solid grounding in the core of topology, from a homotopical perspective. Its comprehensiveness and depth of treatment are unmatched among topology textbooks: in addition to covering the basics--the fundamental notions and constructions of homotopy theory, covering spaces and the fundamental group, CW complexes, homology and cohomology, homological algebra--the book treats essential advanced topics, such as obstruction theory, characteristic classes, Steenrod squares, K-theory and cobordism theory, and, with distinctive thoroughness and lucidity, spectral sequences. The organization of the material around the major achievements of the golden era of topology--the Adams conjecture, Bott periodicity, the Hirzebruch-Riemann-Roch theorem, the Atiyah-Singer index theorem, to name a few--paints a clear picture of the canon of the subject. Grassmannians, loop spaces, and classical groups play a central role in mathematics, and therefore in the presentation of this book, as well. A judicious focus on the key ideas, at an appropriate magnification of detail, enables the reader to navigate the breadth of material, confidently, without the disorientation of algebraic minutiae. Many exercises are integrated throughout the text to build up the reader's mastery of concepts and techniques. Numerous technical illustrations elucidate geometric constructions and the mechanics of spectral sequences and other sophisticated methods. Over fifty hauntingly captivating images by A.T. Fomenko artistically render the wondrous beauty, and mystery, of the subject"-- Page 4 of cover
Experimental mathematics by V. I Arnolʹd( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the traditional ways mathematical ideas and even new areas of mathematics are created is from experiments. One of the best-known examples is that of the Fermat hypothesis, which was conjectured by Fermat in his attempts to find integer solutions for the famous Fermat equation. This hypothesis led to the creation of a whole field of knowledge, but it was proved only after several hundred yeras. This book, based on the author's lectures, presents several new directions of mathematical research. All of these directions are based on numerical experiments conducted by the author, which led to new hypotheses that currently remain open, i.e., are neither proved nor disproved. The hypotheses range from geometry and topology (statistics of plane curves and smooth functions) to combinatorics (combinatorial complexity and random permutations) to algebra and number theory (continuous fractions and Galois groups). For each subject, the author describes the problem and presents numerical results that led him to a particular conjecture. In the majority of cases there is an indication of how the readers can approach the formulated conjectures (at least by conduting more numerical experiments). Written in Arnold's unique style, the book is intended for a wide range of mathematicians, from high school students interested in exploring unusual areas of mathematics on their own, to college and graduate students, to researchers interested in gaining a new, somewhat nontraditional perspective on doing mathematics. --page 4 de la couverture

Ein Schaubild der Mathematik by D. B Fuks( )

7 editions published in 2011 in German and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Das Buch enthält dreißig Vorlesungen über unterschiedliche Themen, die einen Großteil der mathematischen Landschaft abdecken, anstatt sich nur auf ein Gebiet zu konzentrieren. Klar und verständlich wird der Leser auf zahlreiche Resultate geführt, die oft weder in der mathematischen Grundausbildung noch im akademischen Curriculum vorkommen. So kann der Leser Zusammenhänge zwischen klassischen und modernen Ideen aus der Algebra, der Kombinatorik, der Geometrie und der Topologie entdecken. Die Bemühungen des Lesers werden durch die Einsicht in die Harmonie jedes Themas belohnt. Die ausgewählten Themen verbindet, dass sie die Einheit und die Schönheit der Mathematik veranschaulichen. Die meisten Vorlesungen enthalten Übungen, ausgewählte Übungen werden am Ende des Buches gelöst oder beantwortet. Zu den Besonderheiten dieses Buches zählen die Fülle von Zeichnungen (es sind über vierhundert), die Illustrationen eines versierten Künstlers sind, und die rund einhundert Porträts von Mathematikern, die sich um die in den einzelnen Vorlesungen behandelten Themen verdient gemacht haben. Fast jede Vorlesung hält auch für den erfahrenen Forscher Überraschungen bereit

Unconventional Lie algebras by D. B Fuks( Book )

5 editions published in 1993 in English and Undetermined and held by 148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book contains eight papers on representations and cohomology of Lie algebras. The Lie algebras here are either infinite-dimensional, are defined over fields of finite characteristic, or are actually Lie superalgebras or quantum groups. Among the topics covered here are generalizations of the Virasoro algebra, representation theory of the Virasoro algebra and of Kac-Moody algebras, cohomology of Lie algebras of vector fields on the line, and Lie superalgebras of vector fields. The paper by Retakh and Shander contains a generalization of the Schwarz derivative to the noncommutative case
