The Princeton Mathematical Series features graduatelevel textbooks and lectures that introduce advanced topics in mathematics.

This book concerns areas of ergodic theory that are now being intensively developed. The topics include entropy theory (with emphasis on dynamical systems with multidimensional time), elements of the renormalization group method in the...

Here Michael Taylor develops pseudodifferential operators as a tool for treating problems in linear partial differential equations, including existence, uniqueness, and estimates of smoothness, as well as other qualitative...

One of the most important mathematical achievements of the past several decades has been A. Grothendieck's work on algebraic geometry. In the early 1960s, he and M. Artin introduced étale cohomology in order to extend the methods of...

The use of algebraic methods for studying analysts is an important theme in modern mathematics. The most significant development in this field is microlocal analysis, that is, the local study of differential equations on cotangent...

This book offers a systematic and comprehensive presentation of the concepts of a spin manifold, spinor fields, Dirac operators, and Agenera, which, over the last two decades, have come to play a significant role in many areas of...

The authors present a unified treatment of basic topics that arise in Fourier analysis. Their intention is to illustrate the role played by the structure of Euclidean spaces, particularly the action of translations, dilatations, and...

Reciprocity laws of various kinds play a central role in number theory. In the easiest case, one obtains a transparent formulation by means of roots of unity, which are special values of exponential functions. A similar theory can be...

This famous book was the first treatise on Lie groups in which a modern point of view was adopted systematically, namely, that a continuous group can be regarded as a global object. To develop this idea to its fullest extent, Chevalley...

Fibre bundles, now an integral part of differential geometry, are also of great importance in modern physicssuch as in gauge theory. This book, a succinct introduction to the subject by renown mathematician Norman Steenrod, was the...

This book contains an exposition of some of the main developments of the last twenty years in the following areas of harmonic analysis: singular integral and pseudodifferential operators, the theory of Hardy spaces, L\sup\ estimates...

In this renowned volume, Hermann Weyl discusses the symmetric, full linear, orthogonal, and symplectic groups and determines their different invariants and representations. Using basic concepts from algebra, he examines the various...

This book presents many of the main developments of the past two decades in the study of real submanifolds in complex space, providing crucial background material for researchers and advanced graduate students. The techniques in this...

In this classic of statistical mathematical theory, Harald Cramér joins the two major lines of development in the field: while British and American statisticians were developing the science of statistical inference, French and Russian...

Singular integrals are among the most interesting and important objects of study in analysis, one of the three main branches of mathematics. They deal with real and complex numbers and their functions. In this book, Princeton professor...

This book offers a systematic treatmentthe first in book formof the development and use of cohomological induction to construct unitary representations. George Mackey introduced induction in 1950 as a real analysis construction for...

When this book was written, methods of algebraic topology had caused revolutions in the world of pure algebra. To clarify the advances that had been made, Cartan and Eilenberg tried to unify the fields and to construct the framework of...

In this classic work, Anthony W. Knapp offers a survey of representation theory of semisimple Lie groups in a way that reflects the spirit of the subject and corresponds to the natural learning process. This book is a model of...

The present volume reflects both the diversity of Bochner's pursuits in pure mathematics and the influence his example and thought have had upon contemporary researchers.

Originally published as Volume 27 of the Princeton Mathematical series.
Originally published in 1965.
The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest printondemand technology to again make available previously outofprint books from the... 
The theory of Riemann surfaces has a geometric and an analytic part. The former deals with the axiomatic definition of a Riemann surface, methods of construction, topological equivalence, and conformal mappings of one Riemann surface on...

The aim of this work is to provide a proof of the nonlinear gravitational stability of the Minkowski spacetime. More precisely, the book offers a constructive proof of global, smooth solutions to the Einstein Vacuum Equations, which...

Global analysis describes diverse yet interrelated research areas in analysis and algebraic geometry, particularly those in which Kunihiko Kodaira made his most outstanding contributions to mathematics. The eminent contributors to this...

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...

In HypoAnalytic Structures Franois Treves provides a systematic approach to the study of the differential structures on manifolds defined by systems of complex vector fields. Serving as his main examples are the elliptic complexes...

Logic is sometimes called the foundation of mathematics: the logician studies the kinds of reasoning used in the individual steps of a proof. Alonzo Church was a pioneer in the field of mathematical logic, whose contributions to number...

Available for the first time in paperback, R. Tyrrell Rockafellar's classic study presents readers with a coherent branch of nonlinear mathematical analysis that is especially suited to the study of optimization problems. Rockafellar's...

This book develops some of the extraordinary richness, beauty, and power of geometry in two and three dimensions, and the strong connection of geometry with topology. Hyperbolic geometry is the star. A strong effort has been made to...

John Milnor, best known for his work in differential topology, Ktheory, and dynamical systems, is one of only three mathematicians to have won the Fields medal, the Abel prize, and the Wolf prize, and is the only one to have received...

Princeton University's Elias Stein was the first mathematician to see the profound interconnections that tie classical Fourier analysis to several complex variables and representation theory. His fundamental contributions include the...

The study of the mapping class group Mod(S) is a classical topic that is experiencing a renaissance. It lies at the juncture of geometry, topology, and group theory. This book explains as many important theorems, examples, and...

This book explores the most recent developments in the theory of planar quasiconformal mappings with a particular focus on the interactions with partial differential equations and nonlinear analysis. It gives a thorough and modern...
