Product Description: A series of five lectures exploring the role that groups, especially Lie groups, play in revealing the laws of nature, focusing on the ramifications and expansion of several of Kepler's laws. About the first third is accessible to the general mathematician; the rest is for specialists in the field...read more

*About this edition:*A series of five lectures exploring the role that groups, especially Lie groups, play in revealing the laws of nature, focusing on the ramifications and expansion of several of Kepler's laws.Product Description: The subject matter of this work is an area of Lorentzian geometry which has not been heretofore much investigated: Do there exist Lorentzian manifolds all of whose light-like geodesics are periodic? A surprising fact is that such manifolds exist in abundance in (2 + 1)-dimensions (though in higher dimensions they are quite rare)...read more

*About this edition:*The subject matter of this work is an area of Lorentzian geometry which has not been heretofore much investigated: Do there exist Lorentzian manifolds all of whose light-like geodesics are periodic? Based on a seminar sponsored by the Institute for Advanced Study in 1977-1978, this set of papers introduces micro-local analysis concisely and clearly to mathematicians with an analytical background. The papers treat the theory of microfunctions and applications such as boundary values of elliptic partial differential equations, propagation of singularities in the vicinity of degenerate characteristics, holonomic systems, Feynman integrals from the hyperfunction point of view, and harmonic analysis on Lie groups.

*About this edition:*This text fits any course with the word "Manifold" in the title.Product Description: This book aims to present to first and second year graduate students a beautiful and relatively accessible field of mathematics-the theory of singuÂ larities of stable differentiable mappings. The study of stable singularities is based on the now classical theories of Hassler Whitney, who determined the generic singularities (or lack of them) of Rn ~ Rm (m ~ 2n - 1) and R2 ~ R2, and Marston Morse, for mappings who studied these singularities for Rn ~ R...read more
