This original Dover textbook is based on an advanced undergraduate course taught by the author for more than 50 years. It introduces semi-Riemannian geometry and its principal physical application, Einstein's theory of general relativity, using the Cartan exterior calculus as a principal tool. Prerequisites include linear algebra and advanced calculus. 2012 edition.

A pioneer in the field of dynamical systems created this modern one-semester introduction to the subject for his classes at Harvard University. Its wide-ranging treatment covers one-dimensional dynamics, differential equations, random walks, iterated function systems, symbolic dynamics, and Markov chains. Supplementary materials offer a variety of online components, including PowerPoint lecture slides and MATLAB exercises. 2010 edition.

This text breaks new ground in presenting and applying sophisticated mathematics in an elementary setting. Aimed at physics students, it covers the theory and physical applications of linear algebra and of the calculus of several variables, particularly the exterior calculus. The exterior differential calculus is now being recognized by mathematicians and physicists as the best method of formulating the geometrical laws of physics, and the frontiers of... more...


Symplectic geometry is very useful for formulating clearly and concisely problems in classical physics and also for understanding the link between classical problems and their quantum counterparts. It is thus a subject of interest to both mathematicians and physicists, though they have approached the subject from different viewpoints. This is the first book that attempts to reconcile these approaches. The authors use the uncluttered, coordinate-free... more...


This textbook, available in two volumes, has been developed from a course taught at Harvard over the last decade. The course covers principally the theory and physical applications of linear algebra and of the calculus of several variables, particularly the exterior calculus. The authors adopt the 'spiral method' of teaching, covering the same topic several times at increasing levels of sophistication and range of application. Thus the reader develops... more...

There are a number of excellent texts available on semi-classical analysis. The focus of the present monograph, however, is an aspect of the subject somewhat less systematically developed in other texts: In semi-classical analysis, many of the basic results involve asymptotic expansions in which the terms can be computed by symbolic techniques, and the focus of this monograph is the “symbol calculus” created thus. In particular, the techniques... more...

This book discusses the equivariant cohomology theory of differentiable manifolds. Although this subject has gained great popularity since the early 1980's, it has not before been the subject of a monograph. It covers almost all important aspects of the subject The authors are key authorities in this field.

Multiplicity diagrams can be viewed as schemes for describing the phenomenon of "symmetry breaking" in quantum physics. The subject of this book is the multiplicity diagrams associated with the classical groups U(n), O(n), etc. It presents such topics as asymptotic distributions of multiplicities, hierarchical patterns in multiplicity diagrams, lacunae, and the multiplicity diagrams of the rank 2 and rank 3 groups. The authors take a novel approach,... more...
