By Nigel Higson

This paintings attracts jointly principles from algebraic topology, useful research and geometry. it's a device - a method of conveying details between those 3 matters - and it's been used with good fortune to find theorems throughout a large span of arithmetic. the aim of this e-book is to acquaint the reader with the basic principles of analytic K-homology and boost a few of its functions. It encompasses a particular advent to the mandatory useful research, by means of an exploration of the connections among K-homology and operator concept, coarse geometry, index idea, and meeting maps, together with a close therapy of the Atiyah-Singer Index Theorem. starting with the rudiments of C* - algebra thought, the booklet may still lead the reader to a few critical notions of up to date study in geometric useful research.

Higher-Dimensional Algebraic Geometry (Universitext)

The class thought of algebraic forms is the point of interest of this booklet. This very energetic sector of study continues to be constructing, yet an grand volume of information has collected over the last two decades. The authors aim is to supply an simply obtainable creation to the topic. The ebook starts off with preparatory and conventional definitions and effects, then strikes directly to talk about quite a few facets of the geometry of soft projective forms with many rational curves, and finishes in taking the 1st steps in the direction of Moris minimum version application of class of algebraic forms by way of proving the cone and contraction theorems.
