    Topological Galois Theory: Solvability and Unsolvability of Equations in Finite Terms

    Hardback £62.45

    This book describes classic and new results on solvability and unsolvability of equations in explicit form, presenting the author's complete exposition of topological Galois theory, plus basics of the Picard-Vessiot theory and a great deal more.

    Combinatorial Floer Homology

    By Vin de Silva

    Paperback £62.26

    The authors define combinatorial Floer homology of a transverse pair of noncontractible nonisotopic embedded loops in an oriented 2 -manifold without boundary, prove that it is invariant under isotopy, and prove that it is isomorphic to the original Lagrangian Floer homology. Their proof uses a formula for the Viterbo-Maslov index...

    Advances In The Homotopy Analysis Method

    Hardback Save £9.99 = £73.01

    Unlike other analytic techniques, the Homotopy Analysis Method HAM is independent of small/large physical parameters. Besides, it provides great freedom to choose equation type and solution expression of related linear high-order approximation equations. The HAM provides a simple way to guarantee the convergence of solution series. Such uniqueness differentiates the...

    Morse Theory and Floer Homology

    By Michele Audin

    Paperback £50.45

    Based on a graduate course, this introduction to modern methods of symplectic topology explains the solution of an important problem originating from classical mechanics: the 'Arnold conjecture'. Presents building blocks of Floer homology and more.
