Riemannian Geometry: A Modern Introduction (Cambridge Studies in Advanced Mathematics)

Buy
"Each chapter concludes with an excellent section of notes and advanced exercises with further results, with hints and sketches of solutions at the end of the book...I think that it is the best reference on Riemannian geometry available, especially for someone interested in isoperimetric problems...Chavel is one of about a dozen mathematics books I keep at home for ready reference."
Frank Morgan, SIAM Review

Requiring only an understanding of differentiable manifolds, Isaac Chavel covers introductory ideas followed by a selection of more specialized topics in this second edition. He provides a clearer treatment of many topics, with new proofs of some theorems and a new chapter on the Riemannian geometry of surfaces. Among the classical topics shown in a new setting is isoperimetric inequalities in curved spaces. Completely new themes created by curvature include the classical Rauch comparison theorem and its consequences in geometry and topology, and the interaction of microscopic behavior of the geometry with the macroscopic structure of the space.

This corrected and clarified second edition, including a new chapter on the Riemannian geometry of surfaces, provides an introduction to the geometry of curved spaces. Its main themes are the effect of the curvature of these spaces on the usual notions of classical Euclidean geometry and the new notions and ideas motivated by curvature itself. An ambitious Notes and Exercises section is included with each chapter. The book, which could be used as the basis for a graduate course, will appeal to graduate students and researchers in differential geometry and topology, analysis and differential equations.

Neural Network Design and the Complexity of Learning
Neural Network Design and the Complexity of Learning

Using the tools of complexity theory, Stephen Judd develops a formal description of associative learning in connectionist networks. He rigorously exposes the computational difficulties in training neural networks and explores how certain design principles will or will not make the problems easier.

Psychopathology : Foundations for a Contemporary Understanding
Since 1990, more than thirty textbooks for undergraduate abnormal psychology courses have
been published. This count does not include revised editions of existing books. The same period
has seen the publication of numerous "handbooks" in psychopathology and psychiatry, which
are conceived primarily as reference books for

SQL and Relational Theory: How to Write Accurate SQL Code
SQL and Relational Theory: How to Write Accurate SQL Code
Understanding SQL's underlying theory is the best way to guarantee that your SQL code is correct and your database schema is robust and maintainable. On the other hand, if you're not well versed in the theory, you can fall into several traps. In SQL and Relational Theory, author C.J. Date demonstrates how you can apply relational theory...
Programming in Python 3: A Complete Introduction to the Python Language (2nd Edition)
Programming in Python 3: A Complete Introduction to the Python Language (2nd Edition)

Python is probably the easiest-to-learn and nicest-to-use programming language in widespread use. Python code is clear to read and write, and it is concise without being cryptic. Python is a very expressive language, which means that we can usually write far fewer lines of Python code than would be required for an equivalent application written...

The ECG in Prehospital Emergency Care
The ECG in Prehospital Emergency Care

Now that state of the art equipment can be carried in ambulances, prehospital emergency staff are able to perform an ECG soon after arrival on scene, enabling the EMS provider to gather important diagnostic information that can not only guide prehospital therapy but also direct hospital-based treatment.
