By Richard S. Millman, George D. Parker

Geometry: A Metric method with Models, imparts a true feeling for Euclidean and non-Euclidean (in specific, hyperbolic) geometry. meant as a rigorous first direction, the ebook introduces and develops a number of the axioms slowly, after which, in a departure from different texts, continuously illustrates the key definitions and axioms with or 3 types, allowing the reader to photo the assumption extra essentially. the second one version has been elevated to incorporate a variety of expository routines. also, the authors have designed software program with computational difficulties to accompany the textual content. This software program should be bought from George Parker.

Handbook of the Geometry of Banach Spaces: Volume 1

The instruction manual offers an outline of so much features of recent Banach area concept and its purposes. The updated surveys, authored through best examine employees within the zone, are written to be obtainable to a large viewers. as well as featuring the state-of-the-art of Banach area idea, the surveys talk about the relation of the topic with such parts as harmonic research, advanced research, classical convexity, likelihood thought, operator conception, combinatorics, common sense, geometric degree conception, and partial differential equations.

Geometry IV: Non-regular Riemannian Geometry

The booklet incorporates a survey of study on non-regular Riemannian geome­ try out, performed generally through Soviet authors. the start of this path oc­ curred within the works of A. D. Aleksandrov at the intrinsic geometry of convex surfaces. For an arbitrary floor F, as is understood, all these suggestions that may be outlined and evidence that may be validated by way of measuring the lengths of curves at the floor relate to intrinsic geometry.
