This quantity contains chosen paper on fresh developments and leads to the examine of assorted teams of diffeomorphisms, together with mapping category teams, from the perspective of algebraic and differential topology, in addition to dynamical ones concerning foliations and symplectic or touch diffeomorphisms. lots of the authors have been invited audio system or members of the foreign Symposium on teams of Diffeomorphisms 2006, which used to be held on the collage of Tokyo (Komaba) in September 2006.

This quantity is devoted to Professor Shigeyuki Morita at the celebration of his sixtieth anniversary. We think that the scope of this quantity good displays Shigeyuki Morita's mathematical pursuits. we are hoping this quantity to encourage not just the experts in those fields but in addition a much wider viewers of mathematicians.

**Best symmetry and group books**

This quantity, the sequel to the author's Lectures on Linear teams, is the definitive paintings at the isomorphism idea of symplectic teams over crucial domain names. lately stumbled on geometric tools that are either conceptually basic and strong of their generality are utilized to the symplectic teams for the 1st time.

**Representation theory of semisimple groups, an overview based on examples**

During this vintage paintings, Anthony W. Knapp bargains a survey of illustration conception of semisimple Lie teams in a manner that displays the spirit of the topic and corresponds to the normal studying approach. This e-book is a version of exposition and a useful source for either graduate scholars and researchers.

**Szego's Theorem and Its Descendants: Spectral Theory for L2 Perturbations of Orthogonal Polynomials **

This e-book offers a entire evaluation of the sum rule method of spectral research of orthogonal polynomials, which derives from Gábor Szego's vintage 1915 theorem and its 1920 extension. Barry Simon emphasizes beneficial and adequate stipulations, and gives mathematical historical past that earlier has been to be had merely in journals.
