Descent in Buildings (AM-190)<br>Bernhard Mühlherr, Holger P. Petersson, & Richard M. Weiss Descent in Buildings (AM-190)
Bernhard Mühlherr, Holger P. Petersson, & Richard M. Weiss

Descent in Buildings begins with the resolution of a major open question about the local structure of Bruhat-Tits buildings. The authors then put their algebraic solution into a geometric context by developing a general fixed point theory for groups acting on buildings of arbitrary type, giving necessary and sufficient conditions for the residues fixed by a group to form a kind of subbuilding or “form” of the original building.

A Novel of Deception, Power, and Internet Intrigue
Shumeet Baluja

"Baluja's clever, cynical debut explores the frightening possibilities of data mining. . . . A nod to Upton Sinclair's muckraking The Jungle, which scared its readers into regulating the meat-packing industry, this lively if depressing novel suggests that computer snooping is too seductive to control, despite the consequences."--Publishers Weekly

Action-minimizing Methods in Hamiltonian Dynamics:
An Introduction to Aubry-Mather Theory<br>Alfonso Sorrentino Action-minimizing Methods in Hamiltonian Dynamics:
An Introduction to Aubry-Mather Theory
Alfonso Sorrentino

John Mather’s seminal works in Hamiltonian dynamics represent some of the most important contributions to our understanding of the complex balance between stable and unstable motions in classical mechanics. His novel approach—known as Aubry-Mather theory—singles out the existence of special orbits and invariant measures of the system, which possess a very rich dynamical and geometric structure.
