Title  New Paths Towards Quantum Gravity 
Author(s)  Boo??Bavnbek, Bernhelm;Esposito, Giampiero;Lesch, Matthias 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2010. 
Description  XII, 350 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  Aside from the obvious statement that it should be a theory capable of unifying general relativity and quantum field theory, not much is known about the true nature of quantum gravity. New ideas  and there are many of them for this is an exciting field of research  often diverge to a degree where it seems impossible to decide in which of the many possible direction(s) the ongoing developments should be further sustained. The division of the book in two (overlapping) parts reflects the duality between the physical vision and the mathematical construction. The former is represented by tutorial reviews on noncommutative geometry, on spacetime discretization and renormalization and on gauge field path integrals. The latter one by lectures on cohomology, on stochastic geometry and on mathematical tools for the effective action in quantum gravity. The book will benefit everyone working or entering the field of quantum gravity research

Title  Polytopes : Abstract, Convex and Computational 
Author(s)  Bisztriczky, Tibor;McMullen, Peter;Schneider, Rolf;Weiss, Asia Ivic 
Publication  Dordrecht, Springer Netherlands, 1994. 
Description  XIX, 507 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  The aim of this volume is to reinforce the interaction between the three main branches (abstract, convex and computational) of the theory of polytopes. The articles include contributions from many of the leading experts in the field, and their topics of concern are expositions of recent results and indepth analyses of the development (past and future) of the subject. The subject matter of the book ranges from algorithms for assignment and transportation problems to the introduction of a geometric theory of polyhedra which need not be convex. With polytopes as the main topic of interest, there are articles on realizations, classifications, Eulerian posets, polyhedral subdivisions, generalized stress, the BrunnMinkowski theory, asymptotic approximations and the computation of volumes and mixed volumes. For researchers in applied and computational convexity, convex geometry and discrete geometry at the graduate and postgraduate levels
