About this book

Growing specialization and diversification have brought a host of monographs and textbooks on increasingly specialized topics. Bowever, the "tree" of knowledge of mathematics and related fields does not grow only by putting forth new branches. It also happens, quite often in fact, that branches which were thought to be completely disparate are suddenly seen to be related. Further, the kind and level of sophistication of mathematics applied in various sciences has changed drastically in recent years: measure theory is used (non-trivially) in regional and theoretical economics; algebraic geometry interacts with physics; the Minkowsky lemma, coding theory and the structure of water meet one another in packing and covering theory; quantum fields, crystal defects and mathematical programmi ng profit from homotopy theory; Lie algebras are relevant to filtering; and prediction and electrical engineering can use Stein spaces. And in addition to this there are such new emerging subdisciplines as "completely integrable systems", "chaos, synergetics and large-s.cale order", which are almost impossible to fit into the existing classifica­ tion schemes. They draw upon widely different sections of mathe­ matics.

`It contains a systematic presentation at the graduate level. This fact makes the book understandable for a wide audience of mathematics students and scientists. The book can be highly recommended not only tot specialists but also for beginners in the field as a first source.'
