Many problems in the sciences and engineering can be rephrased as optimization problems on matrix search spaces endowed with a so-called manifold structure. This book shows how to exploit the special structure of such problems to develop efficient numerical algorithms. It places careful emphasis on both the numerical formulation of the algorithm and its differential geometric abstraction--illustrating how good algorithms draw equally from the insights of differential geometry, optimization, and numerical analysis.

Lecture Notes on Seiberg-Witten InvariantsLecture Notes on Seiberg-Witten Invariants
by John Douglas Moore - Springer
A streamlined introduction to the theory of Seiberg-Witten invariants suitable for second-year graduate students. These invariants can be used to prove that there are many compact topological four-manifolds which have more than one smooth structure.
Manifolds and Differential FormsManifolds and Differential Forms
by Reyer Sjamaar - Cornell University
The text covers manifolds and differential forms for an audience of undergraduates who have taken a typical calculus sequence, including basic linear algebra and multivariable calculus up to the integral theorems of Green, Gauss and Stokes.
Noncommutative Localization in Algebra and TopologyNoncommutative Localization in Algebra and Topology
by Andrew Ranicki - Cambridge University Press
Noncommutative localization is a technique for constructing new rings by inverting elements, matrices and more generally morphisms of modules. The applications to topology are via the noncommutative localizations of the fundamental group rings.
The Convenient Setting of Global AnalysisThe Convenient Setting of Global Analysis
by Andreas Kriegl, Peter W. Michor - American Mathematical Society
This book lays the foundations of differential calculus in infinite dimensions and discusses those applications in infinite dimensional differential geometry and global analysis not involving Sobolev completions and fixed point theory.
