Product Description: Systems governed by non-linear differential equations are of fundamental importance in all branches of science, but our understanding of them is still extremely limited. In this book a particular system, describing the interaction of magnetic monopoles, is investigated in detail...read more

*About this edition:*Systems governed by non-linear differential equations are of fundamental importance in all branches of science, but our understanding of them is still extremely limited.Professor Atiyah is one of the greatest living mathematicians and is well known throughout the mathematical world. He is a recipient of the Fields Medal, the mathematical equivalent of the Nobel Prize, and is still at the peak of his career. His huge number of published papers, focusing on the areas of algebraic geometry and topology, have here been collected into six volumes, divided thematically for easy reference by individuals interested in a particular subject. This six volume set of the collected works of professor Sir Michael Atiyah includes: Collected Works: Volume 1: Early Papers; General papers Collected Works: Volume 2: K-Theory Collected Works: Volume 3: Index Theory: 1 Collected Works: Volume 4: Index Theory: 2 Collected Works: Volume 5: Gauge Theories New for 2004-Collected Works: Volume 6: Publications since 1987, including his work on skyrmions, "Atiyah's axioms" for topological quantum field theories, monopolies, knots, K-Theory, equivalent problems, point particles, and M-Theory.

He is numbered alongside Newton, Maxwell and Einstein as one of the greatest physicists of all time. Together the lectures in this volume, originally presented on the occasion of the dedication ceremony for a plaque honoring Dirac in Westminster Abbey, give a unique insight into the relationship between Dirac's character and his scientific achievements...read more

They constitute a self-contained account of vector bundles and K-theory assuming only the rudiments of point-set topology and linear algebra. One of the features of the treatment is that no use is made of ordinary homology or cohomology theory...read more
