Special Course in Functional Analysis: (Non-)Commutative TopologySpecial Course in Functional Analysis: (Non-)Commutative Topology
by Ville Turunen - Aalto TKK
In this book you will learn something about functional analytic framework of topology. And you will get an access to more advanced literature on non-commutative geometry, a quite recent topic in mathematics and mathematical physics.
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.
Optimization Algorithms on Matrix ManifoldsOptimization Algorithms on Matrix Manifolds
by P.-A. Absil, R. Mahony, R. Sepulchre - Princeton University Press
Many science and engineering problems can be rephrased as optimization problems on matrix search spaces endowed with a manifold structure. This book shows how to exploit the structure of such problems to develop efficient numerical algorithms.
