Book Description
This book follows the Erlangen program to develop hyperbolic, elliptic, and Euclidean geometry  three possibilities for the global geometry of the universe.
The text uses Mobius transformations in the extended complex plane to define and investigate these three candidate geometries, thereby providing a natural setting in which to express results common to them all, as well as results that encapsulate key differences.
With these geometries in hand, the text then explores the interplay between the shape of a space and the type of geometry it admits.

Sheaf Theory through Examples (Daniel Rosiak)
Taking an applied category theory perspective, this book provides an approachable introduction to elementary sheaf theory and examines applications. It seeks to bridge the powerful results of sheaf theory as used by mathematicians and realworld applications,

Relativity: The Special and General Theory (Albert Einstein)
The great physicist himself disclaimed this exclusionary view, and in this book, he explains both theories in their simplest and most intelligible form for the layman not versed in the mathematical foundations of theoretical physics.

The Einstein Theory of Relativity (Hendrik A. Lorentz)
The books published on the subject are so technical that only a person trained in pure physics and higher mathematics is able to fully understand them. In order to make a popular explanation of this farreaching theory available, the present book is published.

An Advanced Course in General Relativity (Eric Poisson)
Focusing on conceptual clarity, he derives all the basic results in the simplest way, taking care to explain the physical, philosophical and mathematical ideas at the heart of "the most beautiful of all scientific theories".

Topology without Tears (Sidney A. Morris)
General topology is the branch of topology dealing with the basic settheoretic definitions and constructions used in topology. The aim of this is to provide a thorough grouding of general topology. It offers an ideal introduction to the fundamentals of topology.

Topological Groups: Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow (Sidney A. Morris)
In 1900, David Hilbert asked whether each locally euclidean topological group admits a Lie group structure. This was the fifth of his famous 23 questions which foreshadowed much of the mathematical creativity of the twentieth century.

Topology: A Categorical Approach (TaiDanae Bradley, et al)
A graduatelevel textbook that presents basic topology from the perspective of category theory. Many graduate students are familiar with the ideas of pointset topology and they are ready to learn something new about them.

Introduction to Topology (Bert Mendelson, et al.)
This concise book offers an ideal introduction to the fundamentals of topology. The book's principal aim is to provide a simple, thorough survey of elementary topics in the study of collections of objects, or sets, that possess a mathematical structure.

Manifolds  Current Research Areas (Paul Bracken)
This book cover a number of subjects which will be of interest to workers in these areas. It is hoped that the papers here will be able to provide a useful resource for researchers with regard to current fields of research in this important area.

Quasiprojective Moduli for Polarized Manifolds (Eckart Viehweg)
This book discusses two subjects of quite different nature: Construction methods for quotients of quasiprojective schemes by group actions or by equivalence relations and properties of direct images of certain sheaves under smooth morphisms.

Foliations and the Geometry of 3Manifolds (Danny Calegari)
This book is to expose the "pseudoAnosov" theory of foliations of 3manifolds, which generalizes Thurston's theory of surface automorphisms, and reveals an intimate connection between dynamics, geometry and topology in 3 dimensions.
