Convex Analysis and Nonlinear Optimization: Theory and by Jonathan M. Borwein, Adrian S. Lewis

By Jonathan M. Borwein, Adrian S. Lewis

Optimization is a wealthy and thriving mathematical self-discipline, and the underlying conception of present computational optimization recommendations grows ever extra refined. This e-book goals to supply a concise, obtainable account of convex research and its purposes and extensions, for a large viewers. each one part concludes with a regularly broad set of non-compulsory routines. This re-creation provides fabric on semismooth optimization, in addition to numerous new proofs.

Einstein Manifolds: reprint of the 1987 edition, with 22 figures

Einstein's equations stem from common Relativity. within the context of Riemannian manifolds, an self sufficient mathematical idea has built round them. lately, it has produced a number of amazing effects, which were of significant curiosity additionally to physicists. This Ergebnisse quantity is the 1st booklet which offers an updated review of the state-of-the-art during this box.

Monopoles and Three-Manifolds

Originating with Andreas Floer within the Nineteen Eighties, Floer homology offers an invariant of 3-dimensional manifolds and 4-dimensional cobordisms among them. It has proved to be a good instrument in tackling many vital difficulties in 3- and 4-dimensional geometry and topology. This ebook offers a accomplished remedy of Floer homology, according to the Seiberg-Witten equations.
