This is an English translation of Bourbaki’s Fonctions d'une Variable Réelle. Coverage includes: functions allowed to take values in topological vector spaces, asymptotic expansions are treated on a filtered set equipped with a comparison scale, theorems on the dependence on parameters of differential equations are directly applicable to the study of flows of vector fields on differential manifolds, etc.
The purpose of the Elements of Mathematics by Nicolas Bourbaki is to provide a formal, systematic presentation of mathematics from their beginning. This volume contains chapters 4 to 6 of the book on Lie Groups and Lie Algebras. It is devoted to root systems, Coxeter groups and Tits systems, which occur in the study of analytic or algebraic Lie groups. It contains the following chapters: 4. Coxeter Groups and Tits Systems. 5. Groups Generated by Reflections. 6. Root systems. This is the softcover reprint of the English translation of Bourbaki's text Groupes et Algèbres de Lie, chapitres 4 à 6.
This is a softcover reprint of chapters four through seven of the 1990 English translation of the revised and expanded version of Bourbaki’s Algebre. Much material was added or revised for this edition, which thoroughly establishes the theories of commutative fields and modules over a principal ideal domain.
Each volume of Nicolas Bourbakis well-known work, The Elements of Mathematics, contains a section or chapter devoted to the history of the subject. This book collects together those historical segments with an emphasis on the emergence, development, and interaction of the leading ideas of the mathematical theories presented in the Elements. In particular, the book provides a highly readable account of the evolution of algebra, geometry, infinitesimal calculus, and of the concepts of number and structure, from the Babylonian era through to the 20th century.
This is a softcover reprint of the 1987 English translation of the second edition of Bourbaki's Espaces Vectoriels Topologiques. Much of the material has been rearranged, rewritten, or replaced by a more up-to-date exposition, and a good deal of new material has been incorporated in this book, reflecting decades of progress in the field.
This is the softcover reprint of the English translation of 1972 (available from Springer since 1989) of the first 7 chapters of Bourbaki's 'Algèbre commutative'. It provides a very complete treatment of commutative algebra, enabling the reader to go further and study algebraic or arithmetic geometry. The first 3 chapters treat in succession the concepts of flatness, localization and completions (in the general setting of graduations and filtrations). Chapter 4 studies associated prime ideals and the primary decomposition. Chapter 5 deals with integers, integral closures and finitely generated algebras over a field (including the Nullstellensatz). Chapter 6 studies valuation (of any rank), and the last chapter focuses on divisors (Krull, Dedekind, or factorial domains) with a final section on modules over integrally closed Noetherian domains, not usually found in textbooks. Useful exercises appear at the ends of the chapters.
This is the softcover reprint of the 1971 English translation of the first four chapters of Bourbaki’s Topologie Generale. It gives all basics of the subject, starting from definitions. Important classes of topological spaces are studied, and uniform structures are introduced and applied to topological groups. In addition, real numbers are constructed and their properties established.
This softcover reprint of the 1974 English translation of the first three chapters of Bourbaki’s Algebre gives a thorough exposition of the fundamentals of general, linear, and multilinear algebra. The first chapter introduces the basic objects, such as groups and rings. The second chapter studies the properties of modules and linear maps, and the third chapter discusses algebras, especially tensor algebras.
