Title  Noncommutative Geometry and Particle Physics 
Author(s)  van Suijlekom, Walter D 
Publication  Dordrecht, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Netherlands, 2015. 
Description  XVI, 237 p. 28 illus., 2 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book provides an introduction to noncommutative geometry and presents a number of its recent applications to particle physics. It is intended for graduate students in mathematics/theoretical physics who are new to the field of noncommutative geometry, as well as for researchers in mathematics/theoretical physics with an interest in the physical applications of noncommutative geometry. In the first part, we introduce the main concepts and techniques by studying finite noncommutative spaces, providing a ???light??? approach to noncommutative geometry. We then proceed with the general framework by defining and analyzing noncommutative spin manifolds and deriving some main results on them, such as the local index formula. In the second part, we show how noncommutative spin manifolds naturally give rise to gauge theories, applying this principle to specific examples. We subsequently geometrically derive abelian and nonabelian YangMills gauge theories, and eventually the full Standard Model of particle physics, and conclude by explaining how noncommutative geometry might indicate how to proceed beyond the Standard Model.

Title  Algebraic KTheory: Connections with Geometry and Topology 
Author(s)  Jardine, John F;Snaith, V.P 
Publication  Dordrecht, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Netherlands, 1989. 
Description  XIV, 550 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  A NATO Advanced Study Institute entitled "Algebraic Ktheory: Connections with Geometry and Topology" was held at the Chateau Lake Louise, Lake Louise, Alberta, Canada from December 7 to December 11 of 1987. This meeting was jointly supported by NATO and the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada, and was sponsored in part by the Canadian Mathematical Society. This book is the volume of proceedings for that meeting. Algebraic Ktheory is essentially the study of homotopy invariants arising from rings and their associated matrix groups. More importantly perhaps, the subject has become central to the study of the relationship between Topology, Algebraic Geometry and Number Theory. It draws on all of these fields as a subject in its own right, but it serves as well as an effective translator for the application of concepts from one field in another. The papers in this volume are representative of the current state of the subject. They are, for the most part, research papers which are primarily of interest to researchers in the field and to those aspiring to be such. There is a section on problems in this volume which should be of particular interest to students; it contains a discussion of the problems from Gersten's wellknown list of 1973, as well as a short list of new problems

Title  Geometric Methods in System Theory : Proceedings of the NATO Advanced Study Institute held at London, England, August 27September 7, 1973 
Author(s)  Mayne, D.Q;Brockett, R.W 
Publication  Dordrecht, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Netherlands, 1973. 
Description  VII, 314 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  Geometric Methods in System Theory In automatic control there are a large number of applications of a fairly simple type for which the motion of the state variables is not free to evolve in a vector space but rather must satisfy some constraints. Examples are numerous; in a switched, lossless electrical network energy is conserved and the state evolves on an ellipsoid surface defined by x'Qx equals a constant; in the control of finite state, continuous time, Markov processes the state evolves on the set x'x = 1, xi ~ O. The control of rigid body motions and trajectory control leads to problems of this type. There has been under way now for some time an effort to build up enough control theory to enable one to treat these problems in a more or less routine way. It is important to emphasise that the ordinary vector spacelinear theory often gives the wrong insight and thus should not be relied upon

Title  Algebraic KTheory and Algebraic Topology 
Author(s)  Goerss, P.G;Jardine, John F 
Publication  Dordrecht, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Netherlands, 1993. 
Description  XII, 328 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  A NATO Advanced Study Institute entitled "Algebraic Ktheory and Algebraic Topology" was held at Chateau Lake Louise, Lake Louise, Alberta, Canada from December 12 to December 16 of 1991. This book is the volume of proceedings for this meeting. The papers that appear here are representative of most of the lectures that were given at the conference, and therefore present a "snapshot" of the state ofthe Ktheoretic art at the end of 1991. The underlying objective of the meeting was to discuss recent work related to the LichtenbaumQuillen complex of conjectures, fro~ both the algebraic and topological points of view. The papers in this volume deal with a range of topics, including motivic cohomology theories, cyclic homology, intersection homology, higher class field theory, and the former telescope conjecture. This meeting was jointly funded by grants from NATO and the National Science Foun?? dation in the United States. I would like to take this opportunity to thank these agencies for their support. I would also like to thank the other members of the organizing com?? mittee, namely Paul Goerss, Bruno Kahn and Chuck Weibel, for their help in making the conference successful. This was the second NATO Advanced Study Institute to be held in this venue; the first was in 1987. The success of both conferences owes much to the professionalism and helpfulness of the administration and staff of Chateau Lake Louise

Title  New Foundations for Classical Mechanics 
Author(s)  Hestenes, D 
Publication  Dordrecht, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Netherlands, 1999. 
Description  XIV, 706 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  (revised) This is a textbook on classical mechanics at the intermediate level, but its main purpose is to serve as an introduction to a new mathematical language for physics called geometric algebra. Mechanics is most commonly formulated today in terms of the vector algebra developed by the American physicist J. Willard Gibbs, but for some applications of mechanics the algebra of complex numbers is more efficient than vector algebra, while in other applications matrix algebra works better. Geometric algebra integrates all these algebraic systems into a coherent mathematical language which not only retains the advantages of each special algebra but possesses powerful new capabilities. This book covers the fairly standard material for a course on the mechanics of particles and rigid bodies. However, it will be seen that geometric algebra brings new insights into the treatment of nearly every topic and produces simplifications that move the subject quickly to advanced levels. That has made it possible in this book to carry the treatment of two major topics in mechanics well beyond the level of other textbooks. A few words are in order about the unique treatment of these two topics, namely, rotational dynamics and celestial mechanics

Title  Anyons : Quantum Mechanics of Particles with Fractional Statistics 
Author(s)  Lerda, Alberto 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 1992. 
Description  XI, 140 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  Particles with fractional statistics interpolating between bosons and fermions have attracted considerable interest from mathematical physicists. In recent years it has emerged that these socalled anyons have rather unexpected applications, such as the fractional Hall effect, anyonic excitations in films of liquid helium, and hightemrperature superconductivity. Furthermore, they are discussed also in the context of conformal field theories. This book is a systematic and pedagogical introduction that considers the subject of anyons from many different points of view. In particular, the author presents the relation of anyons to braid groups and ChernSimons field theory and devotes three chapters to physical applications. The book, while being of interest to researchers, primarily addresses advanced students of mathematics and physics

Title  Geometrical Methods for the Theory of Linear Systems : Proceedings of a NATO Advanced Study Institute and AMS Summer Seminar in Applied Mathematics held at Harvard University, Cambridge, Mass., June 18???29, 1979 
Author(s)  Byrnes, C.I;Martin, C.F 
Publication  Dordrecht, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Netherlands, 1980. 
Description  X, 318 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  The lectures contained in this book were presented at Harvard University in June 1979. The workshop at which they were presented was the third such on algebrogeometric methods. The first was held in 1973 in London and the emphasis was largely on geometric methods. The second was held at Ames Research CenterNASA in 1976. There again the emphasis was on geometric methods, but algebraic geometry was becoming a dominant theme. In the two years after the Ames meeting there was tremendous growth in the applications of algebraic geometry to systems theory and it was becoming clear that much of the algebraic systems theory was very closely related to the geometric systems theory. On this basis we felt that this was the right time to devote a workshop to the applications of algebra and algebraic geometry to linear systems theory. The lectures contained in this volume represent all but one of the tutorial lectures presented at the workshop. The lec?? ture of Professor Murray Wonham is not contained in this volume and we refer the interested to the archival literature. This workshop was jointly sponsored by a grant from Ames Research CenterNASA and a grant from the Advanced Study Institute Program of NATO. We greatly appreciate the financial support rendered by these two organizations. The American Mathematical Society hosted this meeting as part of their Summer Seminars in Applied Mathematics and will publish the companion volume of con?? tributed papers
