By Nigel Ray, Grant Walker

J. Frank Adams had a profound impact on algebraic topology, and his works proceed to form its improvement. The overseas Symposium on Algebraic Topology held in Manchester in the course of July 1990 used to be devoted to his reminiscence, and almost the entire world's prime specialists took half. This two-volume paintings constitutes the lawsuits of the symposium. The articles contained right here variety from overviews to experiences of labor nonetheless in development, in addition to a survey and whole bibliography of Adams' personal paintings. those lawsuits shape a massive compendium of present learn in algebraic topology, and one who demonstrates the intensity of Adams' many contributions to the topic. the following within the first quantity the topic is principally volatile homotopy concept, homological and specific algebra. the second one quantity is orientated towards strong homotopy thought, the Steenrod algebra and the Adams spectral series.

Fixed Point Theory for Lipschitzian-type Mappings with Applications

In recent times, the mounted aspect thought of Lipschitzian-type mappings has swiftly grown into a tremendous box of analysis in either natural and utilized arithmetic. It has turn into the most crucial instruments in nonlinear sensible research. This self-contained e-book offers the 1st systematic presentation of Lipschitzian-type mappings in metric and Banach areas.

Topology with Applications: Topological Spaces via Near and Far

The significant objective of this ebook is to introduce topology and its many functions considered inside a framework that features a attention of compactness, completeness, continuity, filters, functionality areas, grills, clusters and bunches, hyperspace topologies, preliminary and ultimate buildings, metric areas, metrization, nets, proximal continuity, proximity areas, separation axioms, and uniform areas.

Bordism, Stable Homotopy and Adams Spectral Sequences

This ebook is a compilation of lecture notes that have been ready for the graduate path ``Adams Spectral Sequences and sturdy Homotopy Theory'' given on the Fields Institute in the course of the fall of 1995. the purpose of this quantity is to organize scholars with an information of straightforward algebraic topology to review fresh advancements in sturdy homotopy concept, reminiscent of the nilpotence and periodicity theorems.

Continuity Theory

This booklet provides an in depth, self-contained thought of constant mappings. it really is quite often addressed to scholars who've already studied those mappings within the environment of metric areas, in addition to multidimensional differential calculus. The wanted history evidence approximately units, metric areas and linear algebra are built intimately, as a way to offer a continuing transition among scholars' earlier reports and new fabric.

Our subject is thriving, and nowhere more so than in the directions that he himself pioneered. Beyond his published work, Adams contributed to the development of our subject in many other ways. He was a good friend and mentor to many of us. His correspondence with mathematicians all over the world was extraordinary. He wrote me well over 1,000 handwritten pages, and I was only one of many regular correspondents. He was especially generous and helpful to young mathematicians just starting out. There are many proofs attributed to Adams in the work of others, and there are many proofs and some essentially complete rewrites that come from his "anonymous" referee's reports.
