Until the mid-twentieth century, topological studies were focused on the theory of suitable structures on Frontiers in Mathematics Topology without points. Frames and Locales: Topology without points (Frontiers in Mathematics): Jorge Picado, Aleš Pultr: myonetutomis.cf: Books.
It has proved to be beneficial in many respects. Neglecting points, only little information was lost, while deeper insights have been gained; moreover, many results previously dependent on choice principles became constructive. The result is often a smoother, rather than a more entangled, theory.
No monograph of this nature has appeared since Johnstone's celebrated Stone Spaces in The present book is intended as a bridge from that time to the present. Most of the material appears here in book form for the first time or is presented from new points of view. The title A Royal Road to Algebraic Geometry is inspired by the famous anecdote about the king asking Euclid if there really existed no simpler way for learning geometry, than to read all of his work Elements.
Contemporary homological tools are explained. The reader will follow a directed path leading up to the main elements of modern algebraic geometry.

This book is an introductory graduate-level textbook on the theory of smooth manifolds. Its goal is to familiarize students with the tools they will need in order to use manifolds in mathematical or scientific research smooth structures, tangent vectors and covectors, vector bundles, immersed and embedded submanifolds, tensors, differential forms, de Rham cohomology, vector fields, flows, foliations, Lie derivatives, Lie groups, Lie algebras, and more.
The approach is as concrete as possible, with pictures and intuitive discussions of how one should think geometrically about the abstract concepts, while making full use of the powerful tools that modern mathematics has to offer. This second edition has been extensively revised and clarified. The topics have been substantially rearranged.
The book now introduces the two most important analytic tools the rank theorem and the fundamental theorem on flows much earlier, so that they can be used throughout the book. The book is aimed at students who already have a solid acquaintance with general topology, the fundamental group, and covering spaces, as well as basic undergraduate linear algebra and real analysis.
Published 15th December pages Series: Statistics: A Series of Textbooks and Monographs For surveys involving sensitive questions, randomized response techniques RRTs and other indirect questions are helpful in obtaining survey responses while maintaining the privacy of the respondents.
Written by one of the leading experts in the world on RR, Randomized Response and Indirect Questioning Techniques in Surveys describes the current state of RR as well as emerging developments in the field. The author also explains how to extend RR to situations employing unequal probability sampling.
While the theory of RR has grown phenomenally, the area has not kept pace in practice. It then emphasizes how the application of RRTs in the estimation of attribute or quantitative features is valid for selecting respondents in a general manner.
The author examines different ways to treat maximum likelihood estimation; covers optional RR devices, which provide alternatives to compulsory randomized response theory; and presents RR techniques that encompass quantitative variables, including those related to stigmatizing characteristics. He also gives his viewpoint on alternative RR techniques, including the item count technique, nominative technique, and three-card method.
Among the highlights are the central roles played by multilevel and scale-change approaches in these disciplines. The integration of mathematics with physics, as well as molecular and cell biology and the neurosciences, will constitute the new frontier of 21st century science, where breakthroughs are more likely to span across traditional disciplines.
