By George K. Francis
Praise for George Francis's A Topological Picturebook:
Bravo to Springer for reissuing this detailed and lovely ebook! It not just reminds the older new release of the pleasures of doing arithmetic through hand, but additionally indicates the recent new release what ``hands on'' quite means.
- John Stillwell, college of San Francisco
The Topological Picturebook has taught an entire iteration of mathematicians to attract, to determine, and to think.
- Tony Robbin, artist and writer of Shadows of truth: The Fourth measurement in Relativity, Cubism, and smooth Thought
The vintage reference for the way to provide topological information visually, choked with remarkable hand-drawn pictures of advanced surfaces.
- John Sullivan, Technische Universitat Berlin
A Topological Picturebook we could scholars see topology because the unique discoverers conceived it: concrete and visible, freed from the formalism that burdens traditional textbooks.
- Jeffrey Weeks, writer of The form of Space
A Topological Picturebook is a visible banquet for someone interested in mathematical images. Francis presents beautiful examples to construct one's "visualization muscles". even as, he explains the underlying ideas and layout ideas for readers to create their very own lucid drawings.
- George W. Hart, Stony Brook University
In this number of narrative gemstones and exciting hand-drawn photos, George Francis demonstrates the chicken-and-egg dating, in arithmetic, of snapshot and textual content. because the ebook was once first released, the case for photographs in arithmetic has been gained, and now it's time to think of their that means. A Topological Picturebook continues to be indispensable.
- Marjorie Senechal, Smith collage and co-editor of the Mathematical Intelligencer

This booklet deals an advent to the speculation of differentiable manifolds and fiber bundles. It examines bundles from the perspective of metric differential geometry: Euclidean bundles, Riemannian connections, curvature, and Chern-Weil idea are mentioned, together with the Pontrjagin, Euler, and Chern attribute periods of a vector package deal.
"A lucid and masterly survey. " — arithmetic GazetteProfessor Pedoe is celebrated as a very good instructor and a superb geometer. His skills in either components are sincerely obtrusive during this self-contained, well-written, and lucid creation to the scope and strategies of easy geometry. It covers the geometry often incorporated in undergraduate classes in arithmetic, with the exception of the speculation of convex units.
Metric and Differential Geometry grew out of a equally named convention held at Chern Institute of arithmetic, Tianjin and Capital general college, Beijing. many of the contributions to this quantity hide a wide diversity of issues in metric and differential geometry, together with metric areas, Ricci circulation, Einstein manifolds, Kähler geometry, index conception, hypoelliptic Laplacian and analytic torsion.
The ebook demonstrates the improvement of quintessential geometry on domain names of homogeneous areas on account that 1990. It covers a variety of themes, together with research on multidimensional Euclidean domain names and Riemannian symmetric areas of arbitrary ranks in addition to contemporary paintings on section area and the Heisenberg crew.
