    Topology of 4-Manifolds

    Edition: First printing

    Princeton, NJ: Princeton University Press, 1990. Brown cloth. pp 259. Fine copy, no owner marks. Dust jacket has a corner crease to front flap, else fine. One of the great achievements of contemporary mathematics is the new understanding of four dimensions. Michael Freedman and Frank Quinn have been the principals in the geometric and topological development of this subject, proving the Poincar and Annulus conjectures respectively. Recognition for this work includes the award of the Fields Medal of the International Congress of Mathematicians to Freedman in 1986. In Topology of 4-Manifolds these authors have collaborated to give a complete and accessible account of the current state of knowledge in this field. The basic material has been considerably simplified from…

Recognition for this work includes the award of the Fields Medal of the International Congress of Mathematicians to Freedman in 1986. In Topology of 4-Manifolds these authors have collaborated to give a complete and accessible account of the current state of knowledge in this field. The basic material has been considerably simplified from the original publications, and should be accessible to most graduate students. The advanced material goes well beyond the literature; nearly one-third of the book is new. This work is indispensable for any topologist whose work includes four dimensions. It is a valuable reference for geometers and physicists who need an awareness of the topological side of the field. Princeton Mathematical Series 39.; Octavo 0691085773

  • TAKEUTI, Gaisi
    TWO APPLICATIONS OF LOGIC TO MATHEMATICS. Kano Memorial Lectures 3

    Edition: First printing

    Princeton, NJ: Iwananmi Shoten and Princeton University Press, 1978. Red cloth. pp viii, (139). Index. Fine copy. Dust jacket has two small dark spots to bottom edge of front panel, else fine. Publications of the Mathematical Society of Japan no. 13. "Using set theory in the first part of his book, and proof theory in the second, Gaisi Takeuti gives us two examples of how mathematical logic can be used to obtain results previously derived in less elegant fashion by other mathematical techniques, especially analysis. In Part One, he applies Scott- Solovay's Boolean-valued models of set theory to analysis by means of complete Boolean algebras of projections. In Part Two, he develops classical analysis including complex analysis in Peano's…

    Princeton, NJ: Iwananmi Shoten and Princeton University Press, 1978. Red cloth. pp viii, (139). Index. Fine copy. Dust jacket has two small dark spots to bottom edge of front panel, else fine. Publications of the Mathematical Society of Japan no. 13. "Using set theory in the first part of his book, and proof theory in the second, Gaisi Takeuti gives us two examples of how mathematical logic can be used to obtain results previously derived in less elegant fashion by other mathematical techniques, especially analysis. In Part One, he applies Scott- Solovay's Boolean-valued models of set theory to analysis by means of complete Boolean algebras of projections. In Part Two, he develops classical analysis including complex analysis in Peano's arithmetic, showing that any arithmetical theorem proved in analytic number theory is a theorem in Peano's arithmetic. In doing so, the author applies Gentzen's cut elimination theorem. Although the results of Part One may be regarded as straightforward consequences of the spectral theorem in function analysis, the use of Boolean- valued models makes explicit and precise analogies used by analysts to lift results from ordinary analysis to operators on a Hilbert space. Essentially expository in nature, Part Two yields a general method for showing that analytic proofs of theorems in number theory can be replaced by elementary proofs."; Octavo
