Book cover: Exact Sequences in the Algebraic Theory of SurgeryExact Sequences in the Algebraic Theory of Surgery
by - Princeton University Press
One of the principal aims of surgery theory is to classify the homotopy types of manifolds using tools from algebra and topology. The algebraic approach is emphasized in this book, and it gives the reader a good overview of the subject.

Book cover: Noncommutative Localization in Algebra and TopologyNoncommutative Localization in Algebra and Topology
by - 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.

Book cover: Optimization Algorithms on Matrix ManifoldsOptimization Algorithms on Matrix Manifolds
by - 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.
