Surveys in Noncommutative Geometry
by Nigel Higson, John Roe
Publisher: American Mathematical Society 2006
Number of pages: 208
The series of expository lectures intended to introduce key topics in noncommutative geometry to mathematicians unfamiliar with the subject. Topics: applications of noncommutative geometry to problems in ordinary geometry and topology, Riemann hypothesis and the possible application of the methods of noncommutative geometry in number theory, residue index theorem of Connes and Moscovici, etc.

This is an extended version of a three hours lecture given at the 6th Peyresq meeting 'Integrable systems and quantum field theory'. We make an overview of some of the mathematical results which motivated the development of noncommutative geometry.
by Alain Connes, Matilde Marcolli - American Mathematical Society
The unifying theme of this book is the interplay among noncommutative geometry, physics, and number theory. The two main objects of investigation are spaces where both the noncommutative and the motivic aspects come to play a role.

These lectures notes are an introduction for physicists to several ideas and applications of noncommutative geometry. The necessary mathematical tools are presented in a way which we feel should be accessible to physicists.
