July 25, 2005

A.D. Alexandrov is considered by many to be the father of intrinsic geometry, second only to Gauss in surface theory. That appraisal stems primarily from this masterpiece--now available in its entirely for the first time since its 1948 publication in Russian. Alexandrov's treatise begins with an ...

February 19, 1996

This book presents articles of L.V. Kantorovich on the descriptive theory of sets and function and on functional analysis in semi-ordered spaces, to demonstrate the unity of L.V. Kantorovich's creative research. It also includes two papers on the "extension of Hilbert space"....

The fourth and final volume in this comprehensive set presents the maximum principle as a wide ranging solution to nonclassical, variational problems. This one mathematical method can be applied in a variety of situations, including linear equations with variable coefficients, optimal processes ...

**L.S. Pontryagn**

March 06, 1987

Among the finest achievements in modern mathematics are two of L.S. Pontryagin's most notable contributions: Pontryagin duality and his general theory of characters of a locally compact commutative group. This book, the first in a four-volume set, contains the most important papers of this eminent ...

**R. V. Gamkrelidze**

March 06, 1987

Offering the insights of L.S. Pontryagin, one of the foremost thinkers in modern mathematics, the second volume in this four-volume set examines the nature and processes that make up topological groups. Already hailed as the leading work in this subject for its abundance of examples and its ...
